Few Djs or producers inspire an entire genre with their style alone. Sabb (Sabri Kastrati), has single handedly done just that. Hailing from the capitol of Kosovo, Prishtina, his Deep-Techy-Tribal-Hypnotic grooves have made him an important player in the electronic music scene over the last two years. You can find many of Sabb's releases on some of the most respected and major underground electronic labels such as Audiomatique Recordings, Defected, Toolroom Records, Cr2, Noir Music, BluFin, MBF, Connaisseur, Stealth Rec, Monique Musique, Nervous just to name a few. Sabb has been very busy remixing artists like Carlo Lio, Wehbba, Gary Beck, Supernova, Chris Lake and Hector Couto among others. Only a year after beginning his production career, Sabb's first record release, "Dead Corps", landed immediately on top 100 beatport charts and was released on his own label, SK Supreme Records. He's also peaked twice at #2 on the beatport Deep House Charts with "Sax On Wax" and his Summer of 2010 hit, "Ballkanika". The "Ballkanika" release also featured a remix by Mendo, which peaked at #3 on Beatport Tech House Charts and has been licensed for Toolroom Knights CD Compilation mixed by Mark Knight. Whether in a beach party in Miami or a nightclub in Brussels, Sabb's versatile DJ sets are fueled by the spontaneous and subtle nuances of the venue and crowd.
Founder and resident DJ of the Wobble parties at Cielo (third Friday of every month) and his monthly Sorted parties, ARANA has quickly built a reputation as one of New York City's most dynamic and versatile DJs by weaving together energetic, tightly-executed sets of underground dance music and moving his dance floors with bending basslines, intricate layers and an uncompromising focus on musicality beyond the simple boom-boom.

New York-based Dj/Producer Niki McNally (Verboten, Global Frequencies) has built herself a wide following, crafting a DJing style that fuses together house and techno.
Veteran music purveyor Eric Reithler-Barros has two alter egos: DJ EBAR (deeper house and electronica styles) and Indicant (progressive and techier flavors). He stands in the midst of New York City’s electronic underground as a veteran DJ/producer/remixer since 1990, and he shows no sign of slowing down. This is supported by a glance at the names that have shared the DJ booth with him including Josh Wink, Louie Vega, Moby and many others. As an accomplished studio producer and remixer, EBAR has a long list of respected releases on some of the world’s most heralded dance music labels including King Street Sounds, West End Records and Sony Music/Columbia. Remix credits range from underground heroes Ananda Project to commercial hit artists such as Ludacris and Deborah Harry (aka 80’s icon Blondie). As a label boss, EBAR has run his own successful independent underground labels: Sifted (techno), Central Park Recordings (soulful/deep house), and his current project Quarterlife Records NYC (tech and progressive house).
Formally trained in music, Ted is a bringing a new level of sophistication to the dancefloor. Within two years of moving to New York City from Honolulu, Hawaii Ted has begun to get noticed by some of the biggest names in dance music, released countless solo records, and before the last WMC helped to edit jazz keyboards for Danny Tenaglia. Most recently Ted was part of an album charted by Spirit Catcher (Deep Blue Dubs 2.0) and within the same week saw another album he was a part of hit number one on Juno's Reggae chart (Global Dancehall Re-mixed.)
