Alex explains, "Our sets have never really fit to one particular style or type, Bingo has a Soul and Funk background whereas mine is more Detroit or Chicago techno inspired so when we play it's a real blend of the styles, making something different completely, something new."As true aficionados, SOS boast an extensive back catalogue of music, across styles and genres, and nowhere is this more evident than in their productions.

Izzy Demzky has come a long way since he first stepped into the scene in Edinburgh almost a decade ago. Now ￼based in Berlin, the Northumberland native has added to his already blossoming repertoire with upcoming tracks ￼on labels such as Get Physical and Trend Records. ￼After first developing his DJ skills in the Scottish capital, Demzky secured long-term residencies with some of the ￼most credible music collectives in the city.

It was around this time he collaborated with artist Theo Kottis for his first major release on ￼the renowned Berlin label Get Physical. ￼Now Demzky finds himself in the belly of the beast with a Berlin summer around the corner. Having released ￼‘People Person’ on Trend Records in 2016, his Get Physical record hit the dance floor early 2017 It’s looking ￼like it could be a busy season for Demzky with a 3 track ep on Trend Records due in the summer
Octave (Octavian Rotaru) is a DJ and Producer of House music born in Iasi, Romania some twenty years ago. He’s been around electronic music since he was a little boy, influenced by his brother’s musical path through genres from nu-metal to break-beat, techno and dark-step and ultimately combining all this experience into the deep groovy house music which he is mixing and producing today. Influenced by many artists and genres but always keeping his style personal and unique.Music is his passion and that is what his music is. Passionate. Heavy kicks, subtle percussions and eerie themes give off a minimal-like feeling but without the cold and robotic sound. The analog feeling in his tracks is given by the unique way he produces them which some may see as chaotic but as it appears, there is a method to this man’s madness.

BAHRAMJI, singer of Iranian Kurdish origin, with a superb, mystical oriental voice, also player of the santoor (Iranian instrument with metal strings struck with hammers), the setâr (Iranian instrument with three strings) and the Ney flute (Persian)
Fusion is the word to describe this music, but actually a new word needs to be found, because he has taken it to a whole new level. It has the energy to carry a power flow. The length of the songs allows a deep, slow driving bass line to hypnotize you as melodic Santoor and other instruments carry you to other places. Yet this is not meditation music, it has incredible energy. Bahramji and friends have made not only a great listening experience but also have created something magical.
Shoutscire (drums, piano, samples) bought his first computer in 1998. It immediately became a powerful tool to further his experimentations with sounds and to aid his musical discourse to develop and fully surface. Combining sampling and sound processing with a multitrack software, Shoutscire creates imaginary landscapes, where harmony and rhythm are completely free to interact. Recalling compositional procedures dear to the first pioneers of electronic music such as Luc Ferrari, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, K. H. Stockhousen, he plays with phasing effect, repetition, chance, granular synthesis and micro-editing to create textures and moods. The sampling library he uses is derived from his omni collection of 5000 vinyls and CDs, ranging from Sun Ra to contemporary classical to ethnographical documents from rural Sicily. After many years of excursions and research in the sonic sphere, he now uses moods and beats borrowed from the contemporary landscape of electronic dance music combined with strings and horns orchestrations, with the intention of bringing the listener (and the dancer) to a state of bliss.

Rod Garratt is a self taught multi instrumentalist/ (Guitar, Mandolin, Manola, Blues Harp, Flute,Digeridoo, Jews Harp, Percussion and Hang Drum) singer/song writer and composer.Rod started on the musical road around the age of three when he was already driving his mothercrazy at the dinner table by using his spoon to hit all the objects in front of him to hear theirdifferent sounds.At the age of fourteen his mother presented him with his first guitar which she had found in asecond hand shop. This guitar happened to have a bent neck and two strings missing. Added to that,he had no idea about tuning it but,never the less, he taught himself to play the blues with the guitarin this condition whilst listening to old Lead Belly records. He also had no idea, as a left hander,that left handed guitars existed, and to this day he still plays right handed.Rod has had a colourful and varied musical career, for many years playing around the Pub circuitsin his home town of Bristol (UK) and then later in London.In the mid ninties he pioneered the idea of having live percusion in the London dance scene whenhe persuaded the owners of “Strawberry Sundae” (then based in Drury Lane,Soho) to try him out.After finding a DJ who was willing to let Rod play with him (not easy in those days!), He playedthe set , the crowd went wild and the owner asked him to become resident percussionist, which hedid for two years. During that time Rod also played percussion regularly at such clubs as: Heaven,The Fridge, Hackney Rocket, Eurobeat 2000 and The Brixton Academy, under the name of “Drum”.In 2004, Rod´s life was forever changed when he discovered the “Hang Drum”, soon realising thatit brought both his melodic, and his percussive talents together in one beautiful instrument. Sincethat fatefull day he has, more or less concentrated on his experimental journey with his Hang,composing his own unique style of playing and discovering it´s amazing versatility.Since then he has made concierts in many different places such as: The Indian National Gallery ofModern Art, Mumbai, India, The Naray Tamas haut couture fashion show, Budapest, Hungary,
