Riotbutt is the pseudonym of Berlin-based artist Ekaterina Burlyga. Riotbutt’s sets are an eclectic odyssey of club sounds. Influenced by the 90s techno scene, she switches playfully and quickly between tracks, mixing different elements and styles and weaving them into a dense and challenging soundscape.

Alva Noto (DJ Set)
Under the pseudonym Alva Noto, Carsten Nicolai is one of the best-known representatives of contemporary electronic music. Concerts have taken him to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Tate Modern in London. His various musical projects include collaborations with Ryōji Ikeda, Mika Vainio, Iggy Pop, Blixa Bargeld and Ryūichi Sakamoto. With the latter, Nicolai composed the score for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar–winning film The Revenant, which was nominated for a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a Critics Choice Award and a Grammy.

Projekt Gestalten
Head of the newly minted, queer identifying VRAAA label and a celebrated protagonist on Berlin’s most sexually liberated dancefloor, Pornceptual, Projekt Gestalten is the identity of Brazilian techno producer and DJ, Diego Garcia. Adorning their DJ sets in various forms of white wedding dresses and baroque embroidery, Projekt Gestalten’s sexual–kinks, queer desire and bold feminine spirit flaunts a unrivaled promiscuity of tonguein–cheek–tawdry that’s pushing techno music and its artistic, sexual appetites that much further.
