Lewis Fautzi
The gleam of cosmic light reflects on polished surfaces, sometimes tracing long smooth curves, other times ending in edges, outlining a powerful machine that pierces a path between the gravitational pull of a black hole and the attraction of a newly-born star’s brightness. If Lewis Fautzi´s sound could be captured in material form, it would look something like this.

You can draw a similar parallel to his career so far. Lewis Fautzi has had a meteoric ascension in the global techno scene like a projectile fired into space at the speed of light. Establishing the norm of releasing on well-respected labels, in 2013 his first noteworthy edition came on Soniculture, a label from his home country Portugal. Fautzi then started a lineage of releases on classic techno label Slam´s imprint Soma Quality. His first release on the label was the powerful ‘Turn’ EP, followed by the trippy ‘Binary’ which received an Oscar Mulero remix. The third release for Fautzi on Soma was the relentlessly undulating ‘Range’ before cumulating in his 2014 debut album ‘The Gare Album’, named after the Porto club which has served as his creative impulse and the launch platform for his career. His reputation growing with every release, early support came from the legendary Jeff Mills. Playing multiple productions of his in a single set, it was the definitive seal of approval for a promising creator beginning to define his sound and style.

By 2015 and still at just Fautzi’s catalogue had exploded: two EPs on Figure; two releases on Pole Group which including an EP of originals remixed by Exium and Kwartz; a single on the ‘Unknown Landscapes Vol.2’ compilation; a track on Warm-Up (Oscar Mulero providing the remix); and on his own beloved Faut Section imprint, a collaboration with Pär Grindvik that led to an Oscar Mulero EP with two Lewis Fautzi remixes. Fautzi also dropped a second album on Soma, ‘Space Exploration’, full of highly conceptual material, as personal as it feels alien, where Fautzi displayed his insatiable thirst for musical knowledge and exploration by broadening his horizons towards more ambient and experimental sound forms. Fast-forward to 2019 where Fautzi has now produced four albums: ‘The Gare Album’, ‘Space Exploration’, ‘The Ascension Of Mind’ and most recently ‘Insanity Department’ on Faut Section, a visionary showpiece outside of the world of Techno. Fautzi also holds more than ten new EP’s on spearhead labels including Pole Group, Bpitch Berlin, Warm Up Recordings, Soma and Figure, and has provided the selection and mix for Polegroup’s ‘Unknown Landscapes Vol.6’. Outside of the studio and Fautzi has provided interstellar experiences as both a DJ and as a live-act, on dancefloors such as Tresor, Gare, Lux Frágil and of course Berghain, to name a few. 
Luís Gonçalves (Fautzi’s real name) hails from the small town of Barcelos, Portugal. He lives and breathes Techno. not only in his passion for production but also in his perpetual study and absorption of the art form in all its perspectives. Fautzi takes hold of an arsenal of ideas and notions and synthesizes these into his own sounds whilst adhering to the fundamentals, his productions and sets creating a truly magnetic force that appeals to Techno heads of all persuasions. There are the Mills-ian cosmic tones, the subterranean echoes of Berlin, the impact of British industrialists and the peculiar groove of the Spanish scene, but everything has that definitive Lewis Fautzi stamp. 
The growing amplitude of his vision, the maturity and depth of his output from the beginning and the recognition of his peers from so early on has continuously demonstrated Lewis Fautzi´s vision. We simply wonder, where his explorations will take him - and us - next?
 ANNA V. If you’ve never contemplated your existence on a dancefloor before, you’ve never listened to

ANNA V.
The moment the virtuosa steps into the booth, rumbling basslines become seismic waves, laser beams morph into shooting stars, and suddenly you’re wide awake in a universe you never knew existed. The Florence, Italy-born artist has spent quite literally her entire life dedicated to music. Beginning at age 8 and with the influence of her father – a true synth wizard – she found herself excelling with production and arrangement in an array of genres. However, it was 2012 when the Earth really shifted, marking a new era by sparking up her solo techno project. The anomalous fusion of elements she’s come to be recognised by are characterised by lurching synths, brain-rattling kicks, and rolling grooves, down to the most minuscule detail. Her commitment to precisionism and passion for hardware production has landed her on legendary labels such as Suara, Elevate, Mood Records, Respekt and more. However, Anna’s own label, VOLTAGE, is no stranger to success, either. As one of the most rapidly rising techno labels in the world, its releases are consistently on the top charts and feature some of the most well-respected artists on the circuit. Monster-like synths, rumbling basslines, melancholic melodies and rave-approved anthems can all be found here. Having played at some of the globe’s most illustrious venues, including Melkweg, Egg London, Steam Athens, and more, expect her to be in your town soon. If you’re lucky enough to catch her, expect to come as close as you can to touching the stars. Ethereal waves and frenzied arpeggios push and pull amongst roaring kicks, providing you with an aural revelation not even the best storytellers could imagine.
