Sarah's style of unrelenting up-tempo techno needs to be heard. Her Dance-Floor friendly and decidedly dark Techno has earned her many plaudits in her well deserved career. Originally based in L.A., Sarah quickly established her own night, Fallen Angel and two residencies with L.A. Structures and PANIC. Her skills behind the decks are matched by her sunny disposition and positive attitude. At the end of 2018 she made the bold to move to relocate to Berlin and immediately landed a monthly residency at Der Weis Haus. Another regular gig quickly followed at VOID and the frequent trips to play for Urban Divas, Anologue Division, and Energetica in Croatia came soon after. Sarah connects with a crowd as soon as her sets start. Her take no prisoners attitude makes the dance floor pay attention and it is the same with the productions she makes.
With releases on MiniTek, Physical Techno Recordings and Shout Records, Sarah is primed to show you what she can do in the studio. Look for her two audacious solo E.P's on Poolside-X Records and De-Konstrukt. They are eager to be released and ready to tear up a dance floor near you.
Linus' DJ career started in Muncie, Indidana. He played at raves all over the Mid-West from 1992 - 1994. In 1995 he moved back to London and started a record label, had a residency at the Paradise with Howie B., opened a record shop called, Vinyl Addiction and was a regular DJ for the infamous sound collective, Sancho Panza.
In 1998 Linus created his Slynus alter ego and his tunes of looped up, hypnotic techno went on to be played by many of the top techno dj's at that time, including Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Lee Burridge, Danny Tenaglia and Laurent Garnier. Carl Cox made Linus' first release, 'The Shifter' his tune of the month and played it to over 200,000 people at the Love Parade in Berlin.
Linus went on to remix George Michael, Love Tattoo, Spandau Ballet, Axe Corner, Trigger and many more. His Slynus remixes and singles have sold over in excess of 50,000 vinyl records. In 1999, Mixmag named Linus as 'One to Watch'. The first release in the Slynus series was played for five consecutive weeks on Pete Tong’s legendary BBC Radio One show, the Essential Mix.
Nice things people have said about his Slynus records.
‘It’s a hot jam’
- Jeff Mills- (Slynus - The Shifter)
‘Picture your most twisted dancefloor moment. Your brain is engulfed in bassline filth. Your mates fear for you, then a vocal peeps in, turns gurns into smiles and sends the dancefloor into raptures.’
- Mixmag - (Slynus - Son of a Monk)
‘I was playing one of your tracks the other day and it was really cool and really weird’.
- Richie Hawtin - (Slynus III)
‘I played it in Argentina and the place went nuts’
- Lee Burridge - (Slynus II)
‘I made it my tune of the month’
- Carl Cox - (Slynus - The Shifter)
Linus is now based in Los Angeles and made an album with Amy White called 'The Black Below' and 'The Black Below - Remixed' featuring remixes by Howie B, Terry Francis, Alexi Delano, Mononoid, Jem Stone, Joseph S Joyce, Pete Bones, Tunnel, Alison Marks, Russ Gabriel, and Mike Bryant aka A New Low.
