GENIUS OF TIME (Alexander Berg and Nils Krogh) is a live show of oldschool meets newschool house, fusing the analogue sounds of beloved machines with modern technologies and possibilities. Steady grooves coupled with live instrumentation and improvisation in the club, putting out live synthesis and performances through space echos, lfo's, ring modulators, distortion units and chorus effects.

These tracks are then, after processing in the Aniara studios, pressed onto shiny vinyl and sent out into the world, hoping to find their way to open arms and some tender, loving care. Genius of Time remixes appear on labels such as Suol, Freerange, Stuido Soulrock, Undertones and Dessous !

TERRY FRANCIS - Since winning Muzik magazines "Best New DJ" award in 1997, Terry Francis has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame. To those previously unfamiliar with his flawless mixing skills and instinctive ability to work a crowd it probably seemed as if he'd arrived out of nowhere. Fact is though, he had been blazing a trail through the underground for no less than ten years before the world at large sat up and took notice and his unanimously praised "Architecture" mix album helped put him on the map.

His sleek fusion of techno and house has made him a top British DJ, but Terry Francis has also helmed a series of solid productions, both as Housey Doingz (with Nathan Coles) and released under the monikers 2 Smoking Barrels, Blue Wig, Dattare, The Delinquents, G. L. F, Green Grass, Metal Dogz and T- Collective as well as productions under his own name. Alongside weekly dates worldwide, Terry's been a Saturday resident at London club Fabric since it first opened it's doors and his DJ sets have been a consistent highlight in Fabric's history, continually underlining his dual position as scene-stayer and tastemaker. An unwitting ambassador of the tech-house scene he has been in constant demand as a touring DJ, supporting the works of likeminded producers in the process. In this past year Terry has been making some new productions with his partner Klunk and will be releasing some long awaited new music under the alias Klunk & Zilly.

DROOG is the DJ collective of Andrei Osyka, Brett Griffin and Justin Sloe. From their start 6 years ago, DROOG has steadily built a reputation as one of the leading purveyors of forward thinking dance music, in Los Angeles and beyond. The collective have become known for their respected parties that through the years featured leading international house and techno talent, from Magda, Jamie Jones, Steve Bug and Martin Buttrich to Dixon, all four memebers of Visionquest, Nicolas Jaar, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky and beyond. Droog have also masterminded showcase parties at WMC, DEMF, BPM and Sonar festivals.

Between 2007 and 2011, Droog had held down a residency at Avalon Hollywood, one of the biggest clubs in the US. At Avalon,they have had the chance to play alongside influences such as Richie Hawtin, Lee Burridge, Steve Lawler, Damian Lazarus, Tiefschwarz, Mr. C, Booka Shade, MANDY, Matthew Dear. More recently the Los Angeles collective has been focused on production work, with original material for Crosstown Rebels (released in September to wide acclaim) and Supernature (to be released in summer of 2012), remixes for Culprit, NOICE, Murmur, My Favorite Robot, Adjunct Audio, Noir Music and Get Physical. Other high profile projects include mixing the second installment of the Rebel Rave mix CD for Crosstown Rebels, released in November 2011. In May, Droog made their first appearance at the premier US dance music festival, Movement Detroit. This summer Droog will be playing high profile gigs at some of the world's most recognized dance venues including Fabric, Watergate and Space Ibiza.

Margaret Dygas was captivated by the British dance scene, she moved to London in the summer of 99. Her first job was on the door of Home, her day job was as a make up artist and she began to play out at parties and warming up in clubs. Then three years ago she decided to make this her full- time career. Margaret has been a regular feature on London’s electronic scene playing at clubs such as Fabric, The End, The Key and Herbal. She is a resident at label night Underline and has been supporting growing underground parties such as Multi Vitamins , Run, Minimallondon.com events, Stink at the T Bar as well as Technique in Leeds. Her music has been well-received in Berlin where she is fast becoming a friendly face at clubs like Panorama Bar, Arena, Club Der Visionaere, Watergate, Kino International and House13. Last summer she was part of Cross Town Rebel's mini tour around Europe playing at Electrosplash in Valencia, Watergate/Berlin and Space in Ibiza.

Now making her first moves into production, her DJing style continues to develop and blossom. The electronic-tech vibe of her present sets incorporate the deep and minimal sounds she loves but retains the driving funk of her musical past.

San Soda is still a relative newcomer but has made such an impression in the last couple of years with his deeply soul inflected house music there are few that haven’t sat up and taken notice. Through releases on Red D’s We Play House imprint under San Soda and also FCL where he created the house gem that is "Let's Go' He’s been responsible for some of the deepest cuts of contemporary house and has played a significant role in the recent revival of proper house amongst a new generation. He recently teamed up with similarly youthful house aficionado Motor City Drum Ensemble for the sublime ‘Love Prescription’ EP on Delusions Of Grandeur. Detroit Swindle consist of Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets, 2 guys that, without actually growing up together, have had practically an identical musical upbringing. A vibrant mix of Motown-soul, funk, hiphop and jazz inspired them from an early age on and after a varied exploration through techno and house, they met each other by mutual interest in Detroit inspired deephouse. Detroit Swindle have a clear vision on the music they produce and play. If you can’t nod your head to it, it’s probably not theirs and they probably won’t like it. Their productions are best described as contemporary interpretations of classic soul tracks with melodical grooves, jazzy chords and bumpy bass-lines. So in short, if Marvin Gaye would have made house music, they would have been his biggest fans.

2011 is the year of their first release. With their ‘Starvin EP’ on Saints & Sonnets, they place themselves amongst highly acclaimed artists like Roman Flügel, Ethyl and Huxley. They are currently working on several remixes and releases, and are experimenting with their DJ/live performance. Shows are planned across the Netherlands, Germany and England.

On Saturday, September 1st we welcome “Two Armadillos” who are Giles Smith and Martin Dawson. Meeting at London's Phonica records where Martin was working at the time led to this blossoming partnership and friendship. Giles is one of London's most in demand DJs (also playing in many of Europe's hotspots) and has a deep knowledge of House and Techno. He is also co- resident and promoter of the legendary secretsundaze summer parties. You can find their music on such respected labels as Tsuba, Buzzin Fly and Dessous.

Doc Martin’s live sets truly bring people together. The variation in his style of music is endless. What makes him so different from the rest? A unique ability to spin everything from deep house vocals that have much depth and meaning to us all in some way, to his funky tribal Bass lines mixed with threads of acid, his passive collection of classics rare records that are only to be heard at his gigs. Doc Martin has developed the respect as a house DJ that so many of us admire. It is this respect that keepshim constantly touring; from New York to London, Japan, and everywhere in between. He has frequently played and was a resident at such clubs as, Fabric (London), Panorama Bar (Berlin) and Womb (Tokyo) to name a few. You can also catch him releasing music as his other Moniker(s) Sublevel/LADM/DoktorDub and Blakdoktor.

San Proper is a highly respected DJ from the Amsterdam underground club scene. Over the last ten years, he has been DJing in major clubs, bars and lounges in and around Holland including a residency at Europe's top Summer festival, Lowlands. He's known for his House & Disco sets, but also for blending different styles into an eclectic mix.

His 'Part 4' with O-Boogie got picked up by Laurent Garnier who did an edit of 'Magnificent Speech Funk' for Rushhour and his remix of Ricardo Villalobos' 'Electronic Water' has received critical acclaim. He's also released 'Hupsers & Kletsers for Life!' on Soulrock Records together with Steven de Peven and is releasing under the alias St. Propre on Raw Meat Records.

Finally we have Ray Okpara who has helped put Mannheim, Germany on the electronic music map, with a string of stellar productions on hot labels like Cécille, Oslo, Get Physical and Area Remote, he has an indomitable DJ style that has seen him rock out the world’s great modern clubbing arenas. Influenced by hip hop, funk and soul during the early 00's Rays distinctive style could be heard at his own hugely popular club night RAJO which he ran with good friend Johnny D. Moving to Berlin in 2005 saw Ray’s musical style blossom and DJ performances were soon accompanied by productions, such as remixes for 8-bit, his first EP, ‘Fumnaya’ on Lomidhigh Lmtd and releases like ‘Frozen on Yellow Ice’ (Arearemote) and ‘Loving Moonbauh’ (Drumpoet Community) were instrumental in Mannheim’s explosion in 2008. A crowd teaser and crowd pleaser, constantly rocking it with music to make you smile and lose yourself in the moment, Ray Okpara is set to groove up The Zoo Project this Saturday.

“What matters most, above all else, is what comes through the speakers," says Detroit's Ryan Elliott. "It must be the right track at the right time, delivered in the right way.” Nobody knows this better than Elliott, whose distinction as an internationally respected DJ, remixer, and one-half of Spectral Sound’s A&R team has grown steadily over his decade-plus behind the decks. They don’t hand out “DJ’s DJ” reputations at the club door, and Elliott’s is well-earned and well-deserved.

Ryan Elliot's sound remains unchanged: bassline-driven techno and house reduced to their essence, thoughtfully calibrated to drive crowds out of their minds. The time is right, the tracks are right, and Ryan Elliott is exactly where he needs to be.

Spencer Parker is one of Europe's leading DJs, his unique style of house and techno is in demand the world over and with his productions, remixes and re-edits being supported by names such as Ryan Elliott, Dinky, Ricardo Villalobos, Radio Slave, Dixon, DJ Deep, Gerd Janson and Zip, the future looks bright. Having already impressed both clubbers and promoters around the world to date, Spencer's diary for 2012 already includes return bookings at some of the worlds best clubs, such as Rex Club (Paris), Womb (Tokyo), Barraca (Valencia) Panorama Bar (Berlin) and The Zoo Project (Ibiza).

“I’m shy, nervous and anxious about life,” says Youandewan. You can tell that by his music, be it the doleful, dubby remixes of Maya Jane Coles, Gerry Read or Sei A he’s turned in, or the garage- tinged originals he has crafted for Skream’s Disfigured Dubz and London’s non-specific bass hub, 2nd Drop. Of course, there’s also the notable “1988” (the first thing he ever produced and which was never intended to see the light of day) and a remix of Dusky’s “Lost in You” which regularly gets spun in the dusty dungeons of Berlin’s Berghain. But none of these really sum-up the reticent Leeds lad, for his loosely house and bass leaning sound is forever on the move.

As a DJ, Youandewan’s cultured and considered sets have earned him a residency at Leeds establishment System, whilst he’s also a regular guest at Wax:On. Though he prefers hiding to over- hyping, for those who know, they know... Championed by the likes of legendary edit King Greg Wilson to new kids on the scotch block, The Revenge and The 6th Borough Project, he has managed that rare feat, to slide in to a market that seemed flooded and make a real impact.

Following a mega-hyped remix of Dan Black’s ‘Symphonies’ on Polydor, Duff Disco has gone on to release edits of The Thin White Duke, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Mark Morrison, Steve Miller Band and Stretch that have all graced the top sales charts on Juno.

We can’t believe it’s that time of year already, time flies when you’re having fun!
We’ve loved having you all on board this summer and it’s true, there’s no Zoo without you!
So, lets go out with a bang and have one final, wild, Zoo Project Ibiza 2012 gathering!

We are proud to present Terry Francis. He’s been blazing a trail through the underground scene for over 10 years, with Releases on Pagan and Eukahouse, a long standing residency at London’s Fabric club and his own notorious night Wiggle, one of London’s best loved underground techno nights.

Aside from the continued success of Wiggle and the release of his "Architecture 2" mix album on Pagan, the last few years have seen Terry's career continue to blossom. With his seamless mix of deep, dubby house and shimmering techno sensibility Terry is known for his instinctive ability to work a crowd. Playing from the heart he blurs the lines between past and present to create the future! Since winning Muzik magazines "Best New DJ" award in 1997, Terry Francis has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame and perhaps more than anything else it was unanimously praised "Architecture" mix album that really put him on the map. His most recent releases such as How Can Something So Deep, 3 Steps Left and Freedom EP have gained support from the likes of John Digweed and Lee Burridge in particular.

Tony Lionni has had a busy couple of years releasing on key labels such as Freerange, Madhouse records, Defected records, Ostgut-ton, Versatile, Mule Musique and of course Francois K’s legendary Wave Music. His musical style is a perfect fusion of Detroit tinged techno and brooding deep house and has gained him plaudits and support from press and DJs alike.
A resident of Manchester in its 1980s Chicago / Detroit acid house heyday, Tony Lionni could be found partying at the Hacienda with the best of them. Now resident in Berlin, the producer has managed to find the meeting point between these three great cities. On long-overdue debut album "As One" he fuses the clean lines of Berlin with the warmth of Detroit and jacking dancefloor sounds of Chicago. That's not forgetting the big piano line, of course, as featured on his massive Ostgut Ton release "Found A Place" (re-jigged here as "Found Another Place"). This is music that soothes your soul and moves your body at the same time. Quality tech-house music for the heart.
