Glaswegian Alex Smoke has made quite a name for himself and quickly moved up through the ranks of the techno elite since his debut release in 2004. At only 26 years old, he's already put out two albums on Soma and a slew of great mindfuck singles on the Berlin-based Vakant imprint. Being trained on the cello and piano, Alex's complex arrangements and production techniques really set his sound apart from the minimal masses. His music reflects his broad range of influences, including everything from grime to classical. Alex wowed many festival and huge club audiences in Europe with his new live set the past year and a half. He stopped through the Bunker last fall and played one of the best sets we've ever heard to one of the biggest crowds to ever grace subTonic.

Leisure Muffin, (Michael Hopkins), has been making electronic music since the early 90's and his style cris crosses everything from ambient to electro, hip hop, minimal house, and dub. Textures, layers, and incredible beats follow suit with recordings and performances featuring a careful mix of analog synthesizers, laptop, and live instruments. He loves to play live and has collaborated extensively with many others in fantastic ways, but tonight he is going to be presenting a late night Abelton Live DJ set in the front chillout room, and might mix the Cure with acid frog or Meat Beat Manifesto with regressive haus or Autechre with meepyfloop or something like that. Currently, Leisure Muffin lives in his grandmothers basement surrounded by creepy dolls. When not engaging in flame wars on the Ableton Live online forums, he somehow finds time to craft regressive epic meepyfloop tracks. Among his 12 friends, he is considered to be the greatest meepyfloop producer EVER. Be advised to keep your children and pets away from him.
