Goldcap
Goldcap
Berge Sahakian AKA Goldcap's roots in music are based in an eclectic pool of genres since his earliest ages. Listening to everything from classic rock, traditional indian, orchestra, and reggae, to classical, metal, west-african, and middle-eastern styles of music. From youth, having picked up instruments like the electric/acoustic guitar, bass guitar, classical piano, and various different percussive instruments, it was only natural for him to incorporate an organic vibe into his musical selections. Also being a fan of poetry, films, ambient sounds, traditional instruments, and the spoken word, you will often find him incorporating an eclectic array of samples into his sets.
Gab Rhome

Sahar Z
Sahar Z
A true renaissance artist with an extraordinary history in the global dance music scene, DJ Sahar Zangilevich has continued to make tidal waves of success through his Sahar Z soubriquet. A multi-award winning DJ with a global touring schedule and a production portfolio that places him at the summit of the underground dance scene, Sahar Z, is an artist whose reputation continues to grow at an exponential rate.

A headline DJ with magnetic attraction, Sahar Z’s electric performances behind the decks have seen him share the booth with a host of leading global names, from Solomun and Tale of Us to John Digweed, Guy Gerber and M.A.N.D.Y. Headlining sold out gigs alongside Hernan Cattaneo, Patrice Bäumel, Agoria and Red Axes, Sahar’s ability to craft his sound to suit any venue or crowd as he voyages through and expertly fashioned sets, is founded upon an ability to read the imperceptible shifts in crowd reactions. Generating a party atmosphere like no other, he blends rhythm and melody in an alchemy of aural gold.

In tandem, a successful production career has catapulted Sahar Z, to the upper echelons of the underground dance scene. With his equally successful fellow countryman, Guy Mantzur, the pair’s work has been wedded to some of the finest underground imprints including Sudbeat, Plattenbank and Lost & Found. Moreover, 2014’s full-length album “Time” appeared on the Guy J owned label with Sahar also teaming up with the Israeli superstar the previous year on the track “7.11” for John Digweed’s Bedrock Records. April 2017’s collaboration with Dutch icon, Navar, was yet another highlight on Lost & Found in April 2017, alongside a galaxy of work for Suara, microCastle and Renaissance. Continuing to see his work supported by the global DJ elite in Sasha, Digweed and Cattaneo, the Sahar Z name is one with global presence and gold-standard industry reputation.

Three-time winner of Israel’s DJ of the year award, Sahar Z is a modern global tour de force. Part owner and resident DJ of Tel Aviv’s largest club “The Cat & Dog”, Sahar continues to dominate the Israeli underground scene with his unique blend of technique, talent and immaculate taste. Continuing to see his star rise on the world stage through carefully constructed sets that mesmerise club audiences and festival-goers, Sahar embarks on yet another new residency in 2018, at the renowned “Sound Nightclub” in Los Angeles. Moreover, Sahar’s production career sees him sit at the underground dance fraternity’s top table with increasing frequency through work that shimmers and gleams in increasing intensity. With an unwavering passion and intensity integral to his to his musicals soul, Sahar Z’s career continues to burn incandescent at each and every stage.
Matt Lange
Matt Lange
L.A.-based producer/composer/DJ Matt Lange delivers a darkly melodic breed of electronic music rooted in raw energy and emotion. Hand-selected by Deadmau5 as one of the latest signings to his label Mau5trap, the lifelong musician now makes his full-length debut with the groove-heavy, intricately textured Ephemera. As his first album release for Mau5trap, Ephemera’s title reflects the restless innovation inherent in Lange’s musicianship. “The album’s really a snapshot of where I am right now as an artist,” Lange explains. “It’s this turning point where I have one foot in the world of dance music, and the other foot in a whole different direction.”

Growing up in Manhattan, Lange started playing piano at age four and sung in a boy’s choir from ages six to 13, then picked up the guitar and quickly joined a hardcore/metal band. “I got into the production side of things when I was 15, mostly because I wanted to make my own demos for the band, and that completely changed my relationship with music,” says Lange. After majoring in music production at Boston’s Berklee College of Music—and shaping his sound with inspiration from groups like Hybrid and Telefon Tel Aviv—Lange was enlisted by BT to co-produce his critically acclaimed, Grammy Award-nominated album These Hopeful Machines. Lange next struck out on his own, turning out releases like 2014’s Staccato EP (a #2 Progressive House Release on Beatport), creating official remixes for tracks as eclectic as The M Machine’s “Shadow in the Rose Garden” (OWSLA) and Usher’s “Numb” (RCA), and serving as producer on Glenn Morrison’s “Goodbye” (a 2013 release that went platinum in Canada and sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide). Along with playing festivals like EDC Las Vegas and TomorrowWorld and earning praise as 2014’s #1 DJ to watch by VIBE.com, he eventually caught the attention of deadmau5, who included his “Scorched Earth Policy” on the We Are Friends: Volume 3 compilation (released in February 2015) and “Nice Shades, Wesley” on We Are Friends: Volume 4 (June 2015).

Despite exploring so many genres and directions through the years, certain principles have remained constant for Lange. “As I got older, I found the tracks that worked out best were the ones I made without regard to what other people would think of them,” he says. “People can always tell when music’s coming from a place that’s true to you, so I learned that the key is to be totally honest and just do what I love and what interests me most.” That honesty is also closely tied to his creative process and musical sensibilities. “To me electronic music is mainly a medium that gives you the freedom and ability to use anything you want to,” he says. “When you take live instrumentation and process it in a way that creates this hybrid sound that’s stuck in between two worlds and you can’t figure out what’s what, that’s my favorite space to live in. The only real limitation is what you’re able to imagine.”
