These two are no strangers to the underground scene, with Gabriela having a previous residency with Plymouth’s Casa, providing pulsating drums and dark atmospheres, she is ready to imbue the bunker with her sounds.

Providing a means of exploration through all breadths of Techno. Boasting a unique sound, Spektra’s journey starts by transforming the Hanging Gardens of Babylon into an immersive, yet obscure rave experience. The first occurrence promises to bring the sound of the underground, bringing like-minded individuals together for an emotional and inspiring trip. Hosting an array of talent, Spektra will welcome the finest Techno selectors that the South West has to offer, whilst also bringing various headliners from afar. With inspiration hailing from Europe’s rave scene, Spektra is certain to bring the sound to make you move. _____________________________________________DRUMSAUWDrumsauw has made a prolific rise in a short amount of time in the techno world. Only forming in late 2017, the English production wunderkind also known as Joseph Sutherland, donned his very driving studio mindset and high quality production finesse and produced many an original track. It didn't take long before some international recognition followed, with massive support from some global major league techno artists.No stranger to the world of production and DJing, Joseph started his musical journey over a decade ago, producing Hard Dance under his alias Side E-Fect. A prominent feature in his productions would be a massive kick drum and techno-influenced production, which would translate well when he decided to form Drumsauw. His hard dance releases were world-renowned, with numerous releases on leading scene labels and a plethora of international bookings.With techno being an influence in his harder DJ sets, and Joseph dropping numerous techno tracks he enjoyed, to keep a level of variety and interest in his DJ sets, a logical progression followed for him to make the genre when a love of slower music developed.It wasn't long after releasing productions that artist management followed, with Be Worth signing him to their roster alongside artists like Sterling Moss, Mark EG, Allan Palmer and more. 2019 saw a wide selection of releases for Drumsauw, many of which charted in Beatport's Techno charts, with labels including Reload Records, Complexed, Funk'nDeep, Autektone, Dolma Rec, Finder Records, BubbleJam, Black Square Recordings, Exklusive, Techno Vinyl Records,Nightshift, Refined Format, Boiler Underground, Drum-tec, Second Air and others signing his productions. There were a multitude of compilation releases in 2019 as well featuring Joseph's tracks.2020 is set to be a very promising year for Drumsauw, with many productions and DJ bookings to come! Look out for him!_____________________________________________KOMPANIONEncompassing the sounds of Techno, Kompanion are a UK born duo hailing from the South West’s Plymouth. Having met back in 2016, the pair instantly realised they shared a remarkable musical connection. After indulging in Europe’s rave scene and partying at heavyweight events including the likes of Awakenings, Timewarp, Connect and ADE. They quickly realised that they wanted to do more than just party together, they wanted to combine two musical minds and thus forming KOMPANION. With their bond cementing quickly and working together proficiently in seamless synchronisation, their skill set quickly developed. Making their debut set in the fall of 2017, with a stellar night welcoming in the new year at the infamous Factory. This has since led on to their unique sound gracing various clubs and underground parties across the South West. Having provided support to major artists like Dusky, Mike Humphries, Mach One & Crazy P. They now seek to utilise their passion and take it one step further by curating their own night, Spektra. Bringing the sound of Europe’s rave scene to their hometown, beyond and most importantly, to you. With things now well in motion, 2020 is set to be an interesting year for this pair. _____________________________________________GABRIELALondon born but Plymouth bred, Gabriela, has been on the underground scene for over five years.
