Anonymous producer SNTS has become one of the leading lights in industrial techno. Now he’s returning to BASEMENT for the first time since 2019, headlining an all-star edition of Altaer. The Sacred Courts & SNTS Records head has worked with an impressive roster of names: Regis, Paula Temple, OAKE, and Tommy Four Seven have all contributed definitive works or remixes to their unmissable labels. As a DJ, SNTS simply cannot be stopped. A recent all vinyl set shows the masked artist in ferocious form, masterfully amping up the intensity again and again. Beirut-born, Berlin-based producer Nur Jaber splits her time between often-ethereal studio constructions and absolutely psycho DJ sets. Exclusively releasing on her own label OSF, Jaber is in total creative control. And it shows: whether she’s whispering for breathy vocalizations over lush synthesizer arpeggiations or ripping into some gleefully claustrophobic bangers, Jabber’s music always feels spontaneous and free. Auspex approaches techno as a ritual of power, domination and spiritual catharsis. A veteran of Unter and a tireless organizer, Auspex’s reputation for sheer impact is uncontested.
