May we introduce you to our guests?

Theus Mago
Theus Mago is the alter ego of Mexican producer Mateo González, responsible for dance music projects such as Bufi (Kitsuné/ Discotexas), Sonido Fantasma (Turbo Recordings) and currently co-head of label Duro. Theus Mago is a new side of Mateo obscure experimental rhythms meet the rigourness of the party dancefloor. In 2015, Theus Mago released “Ritmo Extraterrestre” through the french/german label Correspondant, earning quick support from the likes of Solomun, Dixon, Âme and Haai, kicking off a constantly busy world touring schedule. Mateo’s alter ego has lately been on a steady streak of solid releases, including labels around the globe such as Lumiere Noire, Turbo Recordings, Optimo, Ombra Intl, Duro, Feines Tier, Correspondant and Pets Recordings, among many others.

O/Y live
O/Y is a contemporary approach to the synthesis of minimal, dub, electronica, ambient & downtempo synonymous for impulsive grooves ensnared by deep pads and lighthearted melodies, O/Y is always shifting playfully between micro and macrocosm.
Artists such as Polar, Skudge, Moritz Von Oswald and Jay Dilla don’t often find themselves mentioned in the same breath; as a musical alignment, however, they paint an accurate picture of the rich sound spectrum of this virtuoso. After four years of touring the world with his live set, O/Y started his own label ‘Doubt Records’ in 2022, organising releases, events and radio-shows under that very name.

Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist and DJ, M.RUX, is something of a contradiction: At once a slow grind in sweaty ecstasy, while at the same time observing you from a distance, legs crossed, tapping one foot gently.
The same goes for the construction of his music. Deceptively simple at first listen, each track is building into a complex,dirty-minded concoction of soul samples, melodies, beats and varied sounds and rhythms. Handclaps and wooden percussion intertwine with dub-heavy bass beats. Banjos and harmonicas alternate with city sounds from the urban canyons of a gritty metropolis. Blurry voices and distant murmurs interact with chimey chords. Doctor John jams along with Kode9. Hyperdub acts as a tripping backing band for the Chain Gang. Carefully digged samples, acoustic field recordings, bells and percussion are nestled up against rolling beats and synthesizer loop.
M.RUX brings together his favourite findings in music history with what he predicts to be music’s future, paying respect to both and establishing a new sound somewhere between abstract dance tunes and subtle break beats

Commander Love
There are two things that unite the people: love and music. Lucky one who knows how to connect these elements and lucky for us that he became a DJ. And this is how his space shuttle reached Earth in the last decade (some people say it even came from Venus).
With lots of devotion the Commander seeks out the most beautiful sang and spoken words dressed in their loveliest instrumental dresses for us. And as you know neither music nor love distinguish between colors the messiahs of love is not fixed on his musical roots as a founder of the legendary electro group Kombinat 100.
That is how we can listen to a sweet repertoire of Folk, Country, Reggae, 80ies, Hip Hop, Pop and Acoustic sophisticated with special and far away imported cover versions. So it is no surprise that hearts break open and dance floors, car radios, internet streams and couches turn into a place of salvation and satisfaction.
Local international support by Feines Tier residents Keikee and Philipp Fein.
