French DJ and producer Okain has been collecting, spinning and producing music for 15 years. He grew up in Paris and fell head first into house and techno as an impressionable teenager. After spending countless hours listening to DJs like Laurent Garnier, he soon picked up the bug and began spinning and sculpting for himself. Now,years later, Okain finds himself as an accomplished international DJ and producer with plenty of great credits and a solid discography.
Okain got his first residency as a Dj in Paris when he was still in High school and never stoped playing since then. Driven by a strong desire of making his own tracks he naturally started to learn how to produce music on his own and he secured his first releases in 2007 gaining support from the key players in the scene since day one. Okain has released music on world respected labels such as Tsuba, Bpitch Control, Hypercolour, Quartz and Truesoul to name a few. He uses various alias such as his real name Samuel Thalmann, Lezar or Handycraft as his collaboration with techno artist Paul Ritch.
Nils Thabo Gelfort came in touch with electronic music pretty late. Mainly listening and playing Hip Hop and Reggae, he got bored by the annoying clichés and stereotypes related to this kind of music. In 2001 he got introduced to new playgrounds within the Techno Scene, staying a consumer at first. By 2007 he started promoting his first events, having today regulars under the label "Remain Raw" at clubs like Weekend, Cookies or Tape Club. Due to the constant interaction with DJs and producers from around the globe he finally took his first steps in producing. He released music on labels like Suara or Clap Your Hands. His sets follow a suspense curve, driven by pulsating basslines, rhythmic percussions and a little dashes of the Hip Hop he felt in love with in the 90s.
