Binge & Purge

Binge & Purge is the union of personality and noted DJ Tommie Sunshine and producer Mark Verbos. The two started working together in 1998 in Chicago. Their 2001 debut as Binge & Purge was a doublepack, released on Switzerland's Mental Groove, called "Wait, It's Fantastic." Highly regarded by the press and the big DJs at the time, it sold small numbers. Their only other release, "Take Your Drion Pill," was a collection of left overs and re-edits from the same sessions.

Jahcoozi

Hailing from the Berlin club scene, Jahcoozi is a bass heavy trio consisting of London-born Sri Lankan front woman Sasha Perera, and producers / multi-instrumentalists: Robot Koch, the hardcore Berliner and Israeli born Oren Gerlitz. After meeting in Berlin in 2002, their story of coming up in the ranks reads like a musician's wet dream: Having built up a solid fan-base with their freaky underground shows, they released their debut single entitled Fish in 2003 (WMF Records) which did in fact earn them no less than a spotlight on the cult BBC show of the late John Peel.
