Raised in the Detroit area, Luke Hess has harnessed a deep appreciation for electronic music and the expression of the underground movement. In 2003 he recorded his first promotional mix CD release for UR/Submerge. Since then, his production has landed him a seat with FXHE and Planet-e. Luke has also formed his own label, DeepLabs which stands as his own interpretation of Detroit techno. His sophomore album “Keep On” was released on FXHE records in 2012.

Maurice Fulton is one of house music’s true originals, an eccentric ex-pat American (currently living in Melbourne) DJ and producer who never fails to surprise and delight his listeners. His first album since the leftfield Stories Of A Broken Heart And Recovering which he recorded as Ladyvipb (for Nuphonic) is an altogether more accessible and dancefloor friendly affair… Maurice Fulton has been round the block in more ways than one, not only did he have a hand in producing Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters, one of the most successful house tunes of the early ‘90s; he is the darling of both the underground house and leftfield scenes with an enviable back catalogue.
