nfo_Cifon produces and composes Electro with abstract arrangements, pointing to a diverse range of influences. These are highlighted by an amalgam of styles, manifesting as angular, layered tones and rhythms, composed to have maximum impact in any environment. Characteristically Info_Cifon's arrangements are constructed from Modular foundations then built up with other forms of synthesis and distinctive programming techniques. Fundamentally, the various styles are tonal metaphors of a disdain for global institutions, govenments and diplomats with their own vested interests.
Yorkshire England based Mark Swift is one of three new Sublight artists to be discovered by Mr. Aaron Funk a.k.a Venetian Snares, Mark's music is a refreashing reinvention of the IDM genre pleasantly nostalgic with an added originality. Mark describes his sound as "not dissimilar to what "The Last Of The Summer Wine" theme tune might have sounded like if Cleggy and Foggy had habitually pushed Compo down the hill on a rusty Ensoniq SQ1 8-track Workstation rather than on a disused settee".
Adultnapper is a shadowy figure drawn from the dark reaches of Francis Harris’ imagination. Harris, a philosphy phD drop-out with punk rocker roots, hails from suburban Las Vegas but has called Brooklyn home for the past 9 years — a stretch in which he has gone from “hating dance music”, to establishing himself as an underground DJ/Producer with a unique sound and a global audience. In 2004, having achieved success as a DJ, Label Owner and Event Producer, Harris turned to the studio, intent on exploring new sonic territory, and adopting the Adultnapper moniker to represent his efforts.
There are at least three bands called Haxan. 1)
A raw black metal band from New York. hark! the eclipse of your optimism is upon you! of your hopeful ambitions and good fortune, say goodbye. admit the mysterious HAXAN as the embodiment of bitter isolation suffocating your doomed, fruitless existence. it is only through this admittance of total nihilistic hopelessness that record collecting appears as essentially crucial as this. do not despair. while you're here suffering, let it possess your soul. scathing, obscure, and violent art.

Northcape's latest album is Captured From Static, released by Sun Sea Sky Productions on April 6th 2010. The aim is to express ideas and evoke environments, landscapes and memory rather than to focus on the technology and techniques used.
Manchester's Bola is Darrell Fitton, whose 1995 debut 12-inch for Skam under that name helped shoot the now-collectible label to underground notoriety. Although the first of Fitton's released tracks appeared on the Warp label's Artificial Intelligence II compilation in 1995 and displayed the same style of chrome-dipped melodic techno adhered to by many Warp artists, his subsequent Bola material focused in on a heartier, less accessible aesthetic.
There has been more than one artist known as Fur. 1.
