General Info

Concept

Peep stands for Positive & Exceptional Electronic Pleasures. Pleasures as in: this brings us joy and this is what we love! Electronic as in: house, house and more house music, the best house music that you can find! Exceptional as in: creating a unique vibe and atmosphere, all together on a universal beat! Positive as in: this gives us a boost of positive energy, all night long and for many more days after to come!   

Our headliner is one of the most progressive producers in the house scene, namely Âme who have been constantly redefining and re-inventing the genre with numerous productions over the whole house spectrum. As an intrinsic part of the revered Innervisions collective from Berlin (with Dixon), they not only signed some of the biggest tracks released over the last years, they also astonish their fans time over time with exceptional work including singles and albums on Sonar Kollektiv, Ostgut Ton and Innervisions obviously. They did compilations for Resident Advisor and Fabric and headline all the best events and clubs in the world. Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann produce all the Âme tracks together but divide up their tour schedule in such a way that Kristian does the dj-sets and Frank takes care of the live-act. A live-act of Âme is quite rare in this country and is considered one of the strongest and most exciting all around the globe. It landed Âme the first and second spot in the Resident Advisor’s Top 20 of Best Live-acts the past years. The live is soaring, emotional and not without a whiff of prog house. Bobbing away behind his blinking devices, Wiedemann unleashes glorious sounds: African chants, jazzy organs, cosmic synths, haunting vocals and so on. And with tracks like "Howling" in the repertoire, you can always count on a few goosebump moments which you will witness first hand on Peep!

Our second big, international guest is one of the hottest newcomers of the moment with Ten Walls. They may have only released two EP’s but both contain 3 absolute gems and again innovative pieces of work which earned them a great fan base. The first ‘Gotham EP’ came out on the above mentioned Innervisions label and was proclaimed second best track of 2013 in Groove Magazine. It was also the most charted single of 2013 on Resident Advisor. Their second release, ‘Requiem EP’ on the well-respected Life & Death label from Italy again stirred dance floors worldwide for months and hit the coveted Beatport number one spot. So here’s another extremely powerful live-act which is guaranteed to blow you off your feet.

And that’s not all because our third guest is also a huge name in the scene and has been for a long time. Super productive, rather outspoken and always restless - that's Gerd, the man who is as at home crafting lounge (as Literon), classic house bangers (as NY Stomp) as he is producing Chicago indebted tracks (as Geeeman) and deeper fair under his given name on labels like his own reliable 4Lux, as well as Clone, Aus, Rejected and many others. Such versatility in the studio makes him a much in demand remixer ( for amongst others Romanthony, George FitzGerald, Alden Tyrell, Martin Landsky and Marc Romboy, … ). People everywhere are keen to get their own slice of the magic that has produced a number of seminal tracks in the past. He played in almost every club in Europe and is bigger than ever. Last year he made a remix of “Child” and it’s safe to say that it turned out to be one of the best tracks of 2013. He’s a very skilled dj and we’re sure that he’ll tear the roof down when he’ll take over the controls of the turntables.

Three amazing talents in one-line-up. We feel this is the strongest line-up we’ve presented our public so far and we hope you feel the same!

Next to the international guests, we welcome up and rising star Bafana from Ghent, who is making waves with the ultra hot Alpha concept and playing at numerous other events all around Europe.

Our resident Spacid completes the line-up and will be showing us what his love for house is all about. He will be teaming up with Dimitri Andreas who after numerous releases on labels as Music man, Systematic, Kling Klong and many others, just released an EP with Igor Vicente on the legendary Get Physical label from Berlin! They both are not only great dj’s but also great friends and we’re sure that double chemistry will rub off on the dance-floor!

House music all night long for those who like positive and exceptional electronic pleasures!
