Ivo Pacheco aka IVVVO is an amazing producer from Porto, Portugal.
A self-taught de-construction. IVVVO takes the electronic music as a wallpaper and his room as studio to create intimate, melancholic and dark tracks.
There are a number of producers who are known for being prolific; Roska, Cooly G, Benga to name a few, and now Gerry Read can be added to that list. The Cambridgeshire producer has only a handful of actual releases to his name, but a vault of hundreds. We can well imagine his hardrive straining from the sheer velocity of ideas that he sends our way. Raw, urgent and frequently off kilter, Gerry's production challenges your ears but always manages to lock in the groove.
Mister Lies is the product of dorm-room insomnia, the development of a family of friends in a city of strangers under altered states and the feeling of homesickness for places where one only feels homesick. It is also the operational alias for a 20-year-old producer, multi-instrumentalist and feral child who was raised by wolves in the forests of a Connecticut suburb. Somewhere down the road, those winds whisked him away and dropped him off in Chicago.
Berlin based producer Robot Koch is the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed Jahcoozi and post rock/hiphop outfit The Tape vs RQM.
If he`s not on tour with Jahcoozi or Djing somewhere in the world he still finds time to produce and remix other people and write music for film scores. He made beats and remixes for artists like Infinite Livez (Ninja Tune/Big Dada) Justine Electra (City Slang), Raz Ohara (Kitty Yo), Data Mc (Hamton), Al Haca (Klein) and Christopher Wiltis (Ghostly International), Rustie (Stuff Records) and Amanda Blank (downtown rec).

Using classical production techniques alongside influences in post-dubstep, indie, underground and garage, there is an emptiness of space integral to the minimalism of the work. 'With artifice devalued; pure, raw emotion is characteristic'. ''Uncovering a bareness is key to this instinctive mode of music making. Every song is a failed attempt to remember. The lyrics, are usually written minutes before recording, the titles to each song seem irrelevant, I use whichever word repeats itself the most.''
