Ida Engberg

A product of Sweden’s seemingly endless conveyor of techno talent, Ida Engberg has carved herself a career as a DJ/Producer through relentless hard work and passion. Now an internationally recognized talent whose taste for stripped back, sweat-on-the-ceiling techno and her discerning ear for deep house, Ida possesses a growing production catalogue as she ascends amongst the electronic music ranks.


Three intertwining principles that form the foundation of the career of B.Traits. A journey that has seen her relocate from British Columbia, Canada to London, England; cement her reputation as a trusted selector at countless leading music events; start ‘In Toto’, her record label; become an established and respected radio broadcaster for BBC Radio 1 through which she vehemently championed cutting edge underground electronic music for 6 years and become an advocate for drug education and nightlife preservation within her adopted home. Underpinning all these achievements is B’s passion for sounds from across the musical spectrum, and her now well documented rampant eclecticism.


BEC’s career in music may have only begun a short time ago, but in just a few years she’s accomplished more than most hope to achieve in a lifetime. Brighton born, London bred, and now Berlin based, by her early twenties BEC has rocked floors at top clubs from London, to Hong Kong, to Berlin and Barcelona to name but a few. Becoming a firm favourite with club crowds and the industries elite the world over isn’t an easy task, but with her infectious charisma and a vividly distinct sound spanning the vast spaces of grooving, cerebral Techno, BEC is able to do it with ease. BEC is just getting started and if her record so far is any indication, we can expect her to be at the forefront of the scene for many years to come.

Maya Jane Coles

Maya Jane Coles is a music producer, audio engineer and DJ based in the United Kingdom, born in London of British and Japanese descent. Under her real name, she mostly composes and plays techno music, while her alias Nocturnal Sunshine creates darker, more bass-driven productions with a heavy hip-hop and dub influence.

Monika Kruse

Monika Kruse’s commitment and innate musical connection is the key to her status as one of techno’s most beloved and enduring artists for more than 25 years. From trailblazing the dawn of the German dance culture in the early ‘90s, organizing raves in abandoned Munich WWII bomb shelters, to launching her revered Terminal M label in 2000, right through to her DJing schedule this year that will see her play across Awakenings, Time Warp, Sonus and beyond – Monika’s history in techno reads like an engrossing novel that captures an iconic quarter century of rave.
