Skatebård, real name Bård Aasen Lødemel, is a producer and DJ from Norway who rose to prominence in the early noughties. His catalogue “oscillates between emotional techno, neo-italo, electro from an alternative future and a Scando-cosmic reinterpretation of pure Detroitian house”. In 2006 he founded Digitalo Enterprises, an imprint that he has exclusively been using to put his own material out.
Rob ‘n’ Zoopsie are a duo of Belgian DJs comprised of Rob aka Dee D. Roger (the male half) and Zoopsie aka Malory Hendrickx (the female half). Having met at an underground rave in the nineties, they form a unique alliance built on a shared love of pioneering electronic pop and industrial sounds. During the noughties, whilst being highly involved in the CBS and Intergalactic FM sphere, they become key figures of the Belgian underground electronic scene, in particular in Brussels where they play in raves and clubs such as Fuse and Recyclart, and tour all over Europe.
Bill Converse is a DJ and producer currently living in Austin. Originally from Lansing, Michigan, he started DJing at a very young age, drawing inspiration from techno figures such as Claude Young and Traxx. Since relocating to Texas in 1998, he’s been collecting records and gear, as well as recording tracks in a studio he set up in his bedroom, experimenting with analog techniques in genres that range from abstract techno to ambient, acid, and weird electronics. Committing himself to his passion and slowly but surely building a cult following over the years, he then gathered together in 2013 an assortment of tracks and digitized it all on tape. The result was a perfect fit for a C-90 cassette and was released as such by Austin and Denver based cassette and VHS label Obsolete Future, specialized in underground techno and experimental synthesis. Going by the name of Meditations/Industry, Bill Converse’s debut album has just been reissued on vinyl by the essential San Francisco based imprint Dark Entries. His future projects involve more solo production and collaborations, DJing, as well as keeping up with his show on Intergalactic FM. Bill Converse is an atypical and dedicated musician, and we’re very pleased to give you LYO#59, a mix that will give you a glimpse of his current influences.

Sneaker DJ est tombé amoureux du son originel de Detroit et de Chicago et plus encore ensuite des trésors cachés de l’italo, de la new-wave ou de la minimal-synth qui influenceront à jamais ses productions, dj-sets et surtout les edits qu’il produit sous son autre alias Dunkeltier. Ancien étudiant en art, il partage son temps entre sa ville natale de Dresde, Jena où il organise des soirées, Berlin et partout ailleurs en féru de voyages qu’il est. Sneaker sort des disques depuis une dizaine d’années déjà mais sa notoriété prend son envol en 2011 quand son morceau You Think You Think sur le label Uncanny Valley apparait sur le cd mixé FabricLive de Daniel Avery et est joué par des pointures telles que Daniel Bell, TLR, Cassius, Traxx ou Deetron.
