// Daniel Sanchez
The Dutch/Spanish Daniel Sanchez is dj, producer, label owner and promoter in one, and if the techno scene can be compared with a man’s life, he saw this former child growing up. Daniel started creating sounds since he was thirteen years old and saw Amsterdam grow up as the dance capital of the world. Nowadays he has an international career, 5 labels and the ambition to bring music to every corner of the world.
From the year 2007 minimal-techno music was conquering the clubs of Amsterdam. The young Sanchez saw this trend and started to throw both legal and illegal parties. Especially the illegal ones in the raw north of Amsterdam and in a ship called Stubnitz are still renown in the Dutch scene. This was also the year Marco Carola and Loco Dice made a remix of his track ‘Mumbling Yeah’ which became an underground world hit.
These successes were one of the reasons Sanchez started his own monthly club night called Bla Bla in 2008 at Studio 80 Amsterdam. Dj’s like Barem, Andre Oliva and Mathias Kaden all played their first gig in Amsterdam on one of the infamous Bla Bla nights. Because these nights were successful he established the label Bla Bla in 2009. The label teamed up with El Mundo & Satori, Mulder, and Bas Amro and had a great influence in the scene.
Individually Daniel was also developing, and released his first album on the Remote Area label called Untitled Concept. 2010 was an even busier year with many national, but also international gigs. Minimal techno was more popular than ever and so were the DJ’s. By now he released tracks on the labels Remote Area, Plus8 (Richie Hawtin), Saved Records by Nic Fancuilli, Suara and more. Apart from music itself he had (and still has) a great interest in the technical developments of the field, and changed his gear every year.
Always up for new musical adventures he launched the electronic-dub sub-label of Bla Bla: Be Real in 2010. At the end of this year he also created a minimalistic- dub album called Cirkel, which he released, of course, on his own label Bla Bla.
In 2011 he signed a three-year contract with Sensation for the Sensation 3 Year World Tour, where his focus layed on techno. With them he travelled from North- to South- America, Asia and Europe where he created twelve successful shows together with his brother Juan Sanchez. After meeting many new, inspiring people he now focuses even more on his international aspirations.
Since Daniel started his career he played seven times for Awakenings, also seven times for Welcome to the Future Festival, A day at the Park Festival and two times for Time Warp. In 2014 the label Bla Bla celebrated its fifth birthday. One of its presents is that after two years the label is releasing on vinyl again. He established a new label called Cachai with his South American partner in 2014 and set up the minimal collective/label We are the music makers in 2015. In this year he also founded the label 555 (hahaha in the Thai language), at which he focuses on the Asian market. Just like the music scene, Daniel Sanchez is always evolving.

// Omar Santana
It’s hard to believe how much Diego Santana has accomplished in the time he’s devoted to techno. Although only in his mid 20s, he’s already released dozens of memorable singles through well-known labels.
His now massive discography includes releases through P.U.N.C.H.I.S. as well as Draft LTD, Early Morning Music, and MINIM Records, just to name a few. He’s also shared the stage with artists like Rich NXT, Tini, Martin Buttrich, Hector, Chad Andrew, Butch, David Gtronic and Randall M, and even played an engaging back-to-back set with Enzo Siragusa.
Santana’s constant drive to step outside of his comfort zone and challenge himself has played no small part in his tireless work ethic as a producer. However, his music all comes from a very authentic place. Everything he produces comes from whatever he might be feeling at the time, and you can hear it in every nuance of each arrangement.
As far as DJing is concerned, when not playing on vinyl he prefers to spin on four CDJs at a time so that he can loop samples from several songs at once to make each transition indiscernible to the audience. He plans ahead fastidiously, bringing an uncommon, deliberate sensibility to a typically improvisational craft.
With techno as popular as ever, the trajectory of Diego Santana’s career only stands to curve further upwards in 2017 and beyond. Include him in your list of artists to watch as he reaches more electronic music fans the world over.
Kevin Callison calls Denver, Colorado home utilizing the warm analog sounds by use of vinyl and digital realms ensuring the audience is taken on a unique audio experience. Delving into various genres to create an „audio movie“ taking his listeners on a journey that fills the mind, body and environment into nothing short of a study in sound. Weaving through techno, progressive, breaks, acid and house enables his sound selection to get to the corners allowing the mixes to expand beyond the mundane. Warm, funky bass and intricate mids and highs lend themselves to many tributaries that help dictate an interesting heartfelt connection to those in attendance.
Being an artist in various genres of expression, Kevin has a full understanding of the holistic approach to attain moments of creation that keep the vibe fresh and inviting. He has been a D.J. since the late nineties curating and performing across the country in countless shows and events. In recent years playing with many international acts such as Kevin Saunderson, Dj T, Dave Pezzner, frank and Tony, Etienne De Crecy,Laura Jones, Pig and Dan), festivals (Great American Techno Festival, Together, DWS), and along with weekly events(Vedana, Versions, The Underground) the ability to make the most discerning ears vibrate with a inventiveness that is an inspired pleasure.
