An integral part of the Tresor resident team since 2009, Handmade earned his stripes in the rocky terrain of the Berlin nightlife. Little by little he developed his pumping original mix of superior and timeless dance styles that have particularly influenced his experience. However, this was not developed entirely in the German capital on the Spree River but rather near another large body of water: Lake Michigan in Chicago.
He spent a few months in Chicago but that was clearly enough to lose himself in one of the richest dance music narratives of the planet, by listening his way through entire record stores and checking out the local scene. The combination of abundant sexiness and spiritual depth, etched into the vinyl of Trax, Dance Mania and Cajual, seemed to parallel a core basic human instinct about the experience of fun.
Award-winning Spaniard Cuartero has quickly made a name for himself. In 2015 he was titled Best Newcomer DJ at the DJ Awards and then in 2017 he won Best Tech House Artist and Artist Of The Year at the Vicious Music Awards. Recent performances at Elrow Festival, Music On and Pyramid/Amnesia Ibiza.
Anil Aras has been a rising star behind the decks the last couple of years, playing at Glastonbury Festival, Ibiza and all over the European mainland, as well as getting worldwide appreciation for his own productions. As an artist, he is utterly dedicated to please every inch of the room he walks into.
Aron Volta is an exciting young talent coming out Groningen, Netherlands. His first release the ‘What I Need’ ep on Blind Vision Recordings has gained support from heavyweights Butch & Chris Stussy, as well as breaking into the Beatport deep house top 100 with ‘Hurry’.
