Dutch DJ and producer Eliaz Mazian has a Moroccan background but grew up in the Netherlands and is now a firm fixture on the capital’s club circuit, as well as being part of the much loved DJ collective Barre Tijden. Elias openly admits to being passionate, emotional and sensitive, and it shows in his DJ sets which take inspiration for the music around which he grew up – Michael Jackson, Prince, Stevie Wonder – as well as from more contemporary flames like Moodymann, Pepe Bradock and Tom Trago. To date he has played venerated night spots like Melkweg, Chicago Social Club, Into the Woods, Club Air, Studio 80, 5 Days Off and many others.
Hailing from New Delhi, Hamza has attained a reputation as a pioneer of the house scene in India and one of the more innovative and exciting up-and-coming producers today. Hamza's diverse international sound is influenced from his strong musical background as well as growing up in India and traveling the world, living in Paris, Boston, and New York. Exposure to renowned house DJs such as Terry Francis, Dave Mothersole, DJ Heather, and Danny Teneglia inspired Hamza to create his own electronic dance productions.
