WOLVON

These three bearded men from the northern part of Holland bring post-noise alternated with enchanting, mellowed out dreampop. With amps in overdrive and lots of reverberated vocals this band made quite a name for itself in a short period of time. They also seem to have a mission to go with their music as they themselves declare: Wolvon gives comfort to those in need. Or as we like to say: Get your Wolvon!

Bassjackers

“On a afternoon somewhere in the beginning of 2007 two friends decided to join forces, one Dj and one producer, both sharing great passion for house music.. Bassjackers was born..!” Bassjackers aka Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst had not foreseen what was coming when they started out with their collaboration. Marlon was already Dj-ing for a while and Ralph experimented a lot with making different kinds of dance music. Marlon was mainly playing house music at the time and then the idea came to push Ralphs productions in that direction so that Marlon could play the tracks in his sets.
