BL.CK is a Frankfurt-based DJ and producer whose life from an early age revolved around music. His ear for a catchy beat developed through drum-playing in his early years and quickly developed into an attraction to not only acoustic beats but also the rhythmic sound of electronic music. It was then that BL.CK moved on to mastering the use of turntables to play the music he soon discovered he loved.These days BL.CK’s style encompasses a spectrum of music which ranges from dark, traditional techno to bright, funky, trippy, vocal-based tech house. His belief that ‘Groove is the key to happiness’ is the theme which runs through both his musical productions and his mixes; he is always in search of sounds with a certain je ne sais quoi which make the listener sit up and pay attention to incorporate in his musical ventures.“Music is as personal as it gets; it’s not about just hearing the music… it’s about feeling it.”For BL.CK connecting music with emotions and understanding this connection in order to generate sounds to get people dancing is key to both his productions and mixes.In 2017 BL.CK founded DOPECODEDTECH RECORDS; this ‘all about the music’ label is hopefully going to become a music ‘home’ for all of you Techno and Techhouse lovers out there.

Shumbo Jebang is a duo from Birmingham and Manchester inspired by the sounds of Berlin. They came together through a shared love of house and techno in the early noughties running a successful club night – Jumbo Shebang – at Manchester’s Joshua Brooks and after a brief hiatus they have reformed under their slightly adapted guise. With an unquenchable thirst for electronic music from the past and the present the duo pride themselves on a deep knowledge of the scene to deliver high quality sets covering a variety of styles with the mantra that no great record ever gets old. Simon and Sean met in early 2002, Simon was studying for a degree in marketing and music production in Manchester and had moved up from Birmingham. The Pair met while both working part time during their studies, with music being the topic they instantly bonded over. For both of them music was a cornerstone of who they were as people.
Sean’s father was a DJ playing Disco and 80’s electronica in Manchester, Wilmslow and via hospital radio, without doubt he inherited his love of music from him. An 11 year old Sean was introduced to The Prodigy by an older neighbour and was instantly hooked, the tempo, the samples and the energy, his love affair with electronic music began right there listening to tracks like “Poison” and ” Your Love” and “Hyperspeed”. As a rebellious teen Sean turned to Gangster Rap and hip hop but even then he was drawn to the more musical West Coast G-Funk sound that had grown organically from its Disco roots, albums from Dre, Warren G, Snoop Dogg, 2pac and Bone Thugs and Harmony were firm favourites. The draw to electronica was never far away and his summers in Ireland partying to mainstream Trance affirmed his ambition to start DJing, He bought his first belt drive turntables shortly after his 18th birthday.
Simon was too lazy to contribute to this paragraph so, Sean made it up. Simon first heard electronic music while following his beloved Birmingham City. He would take the coach to away games with his uncles and they would listen to the Vengaboys and Sash on repeat. As soon as he was old enough he would spend his all his time at Tidy weekends, developing quite a crush on Ann Savage, he was once thrown out for chucking is boxers at her. Realising he was only scratching the surface of Techno it took a move to Manchester the capital of the north to discover a more underground sound. He never lost his love for The Tamperer “Feel it” or ELO’s “Mr Blue sky” as they took him straight back to St Andrew’s.
They began frequenting Sankey Soap ‘s (as it was then) Saturday night “Redlight” enjoying sets from the likes of Eric Morillo, Danny Rampling, Harry Romero, DJ sneak, Steve Lawler, Paul Woolford, Tim Deluxe, The Plump DJ’s and Tom Middleton. After recruiting a couple of friends they went on to put on their own night “Jumbo Shebang ” at what was then Sofa (Now Joshua Brooks) running on a Thursday night for almost a year great times were had by all that joined them on the dancefloor.
The fun was short lived as Simon returned to Birmingham, the pair stayed in contact for the next few years both travelling to each other’s cities for nights out. Holidaying together became a twice yearly occurrence, first on a yearly summer Ibiza pilgrimage and later they added winter trips to Berlin. It was Berlin that possibly reignited that desire to reunited behind the decks once more, the DIY nature of clubbing landscape especially in what was the Old East Berlin was a light-bulb moment and they found themselves thinking they still had something to offer the scene. Struggling for something to call their new venture one of their mutual friends came up with the idea of swapping around the name from the Manchester night and SHUMBO JEBANG was born!
