Our 15 Podcast comes from Andreas Bergmann
Andreas is mixing for 15 years now, and for the the last five years he played under his alias Andreas Bergmann. Andreas has an Interresting career so far. He played on the biggest festivals and clubs in Holland and has played in several countrys like Italy, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Turkey.
Leeuwarden (Holland) is his homebase for the music. Together with some close friends Andreas started a party organization in 2004 named ‘Arthouse’. This organization concentrates on deephouse, techhouse and techno. Or as we say it: ‘Cutting Edge House Music’. The monthly Nights at Doozo (Leeuwarden) are not only popular for the music but even more for the ambience arthouse creates. That’s why DJ’s like Lauhaus, Nuno dos Santos, Michel de Hey and Remy love to come and spin the wheels.
To bring his productions skills to the next level, Andreas locked himself up in the studio for some time. This resulted in a more techy, yet deep sound. In 2007 he joined the label Klopfgeist (www.klopfgeist.com). He released a number of tracks like: ‘I Want To Buy A Dog (including a Lauhaus Remix), ‘Slippery When Wet’ and ‘I Will Only Say This Once’. The last EP he released on Klopfgeist was ‘The Big Hangover’ and was a big hit! Support by ‘Richie Hawtin’, ‘Mihalis Safras’, ‘Behrouz’, ‘Troy Pierce’ and many more, but there is much more to be released on Klopfgeist in 2011. So keep your ears and eyes open, Andreas Bergmann is one to watch!

Our podcast 12 comes from Dutch DJ Lilith.
There is an underlying order in this universe, which expresses itself in the form of numerical relations. This universal order is the basis of my music. I do this because I believe that when your music is based on this order, you can touch people in the most profound way.” – Lilith, July 2011 Rising Dutch house and techno talent Lilith is showing herself to be as independent and as strong a force as her mythological namesake in today’s tough musical climate. Born Caroline Arends, the Amsterdam resident takes her sobriquet from the woman who, in Jewish mythology, was said to be Adam’s wife (move over Eve). She left her husband as she felt too constrained and subservient to him – and it’s that same desire to be individual and different that drives this emerging start. First embracing the art and science of DJing in 2004, Lilith spent 7 years as one half of Naald & Draad, developing a weighty, bullshit-free groovy tech house sound that won her and her partner-in-crime great acclaim across her native country and continent.
2010 was to be both the year they released their first record – the cheeky From Blossom Till Dawn on Daniel Sanchez’s acclaimed Bla Bla Records – and the year they parted company. In the summer of 2010, Lilith was born as a solo DJ and producer. One with big ambitions. Following on from playing at the best festivals her homeland NL has to offer (Mystery Land, Dance Valley, Welcome To The Future, Rockit Open Air) as well as world’s most respected club mainstays like Watergate, Chalet Berlin, Stereo Montreal, Melkweg, Black Box Italy, Catwalk, Art of Dark London and more, she has held down a 2 year residency at Amsterdam’s legendary bastion of all things underground, Studio 80 (2010 – 2012). She also plays a part in organizing the bi-monthly Warehouse parties at Rotterdam’s Pakhuis, spreading the good word of house and techno across both of the country’s major cities. Throughout the years, she’s played alongside heroes of the scene, from Jeff Mills to Guy Gerber, Karotte to Tobi Neumann, Ripperton to Gregor Tresher, Kerri Chandler to Dennis Ferrer and many more.
Lilith debuted her live act in July 2011 on the main stage at Have Nice Day festival to great acclaim. Her first release as Lilith – Angel’s Love on Monique Musique – has proved to be an even bigger success than she could have hoped for.. It pointed a finger to a very bright career in the studio, while her strengths and popularity as a DJ continue to blossom thanks to her harmonically-tailored mixing skills and exquisite track selection. In 2012 Lilith released a much anticipated and well-received “Master Codes EP” on Memoria Recordings, followed by a remix of Mike Montano’s ‘Copy vibe & Paste love’ on Pins & Needles. Receiving ongoing support from the likes of Carlo Lio Gel Abril, Hernan Cattaneo, Andrew Grant, Andrea Oliva, Dennis Ferrer, Jerome Sydenham, Robert Dietz and more, Lilith divides her time between being locked up in the studio, working on her upcoming releases & gigging around the world. Her most recent release on EDEC, Mercurius Retrograde (January 2013), her upcoming mini album on Art of Dark ‘Lagrimas del Sol’, a collaboration with David Gtronic, as wel as her EP on Moscow Records and the much anticipated EP release on Objektivity are but a few projects a ‘busy bee’ Lilith has in store for us in 2013. Fully immersed in creating and promoting the music she loves so passionately, this beautiful soul is here to stay.
Our podcast 11 comes from Dutch DJ Ferro.
Ferro, is spreading underground music to all people in Amsterdam with his mixes since he was 17 years old. Ferro’s sound is influenced by classical music, jazz and science fiction.
His name is familiar across Amsterdam’s club circuit. and he’s played alongside big DJ’s like Onur Ozer, Rhadoo & Zip to mention a few. At the moment the releases are popping up and his house and techno sounds like if it was pulled through an old analog, vintage tube amp. This isn’t very surprising, because he’s graduated as an Audio Engineer.
Labels including Carnivale, Moral Fiber and Tzinah have welcomed the organic music to explore a now signature sound, that’s awash in the beats that made many of us fall for house in the first place.
Stathis Lazarides B2B Alex Celler

Stathis and Alex met in 2009. Their relationship developed quickly due to the common ground, philosophy and ideals that they share when it comes to quality underground house music.

During the numerous times they have played together for Rhythmatic, their performances have captivated the crowd’s imagination. And this mix is not different.
