Derek is one of the best DJs we've heard, and one of our favorite people in NYC. Dude never, ever f*cks up a mix, and his excellent track selection always keeps the trainspotters on their toes (he works at Watts distro, so he's completely on top of new releases). Ghostly has this to say: "Derek Plaslaiko delves into the realm of dance music in which the head and body are equally active. The records he plays click and whirl inside the brain while the low end keeps the body busy. Mixing lush techno with jackin' house and a healthy dose of Detroit classics, Plaslaiko is known for his creative track selection, seamlessly woven by pin-point mixing skills that rival international DJs like Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, and Laurent Garnier (all of whom Plaslaiko has shared deck time with)." Whether he's behind the decks or just hanging out, it's always a great party when Plas(tered)laiko's in the house.

Glitterbug is a new talent out of Cologne. He doesn't have any releases out yet, but is working on his debut album and is closely affiliated with Cologne labels Areal and Sub Static. After getting kind of bored with the Cologne scene, he moved to Israel and jump started a minimal techno scene from scratch (thank god someone is LEAVING Germany to make things happen elsewhere). He has produced the very successful C Sides festival in Jerusalem for three years now. His plays downtempo minimal techno on 3 turntables, incorporating loops, bleeps, and his own tracks. Tonight is his debut US performance.
