James Whipple is a resident at Janus, the Berlin party whose music policy has spread across the world as part of a movement known as deconstructed or experimental club music. His early work as M.E.S.H., including his 2015 album for PAN, Piteous Gate, was among the scene's most complex and adventurous. 

He made dance music that was dense with references, samples and explosive sound design, delivered over frantic rhythms partly inspired by the internet's information overload. With experience, Whipple has streamlined his sound, culminating in his new album, Hesaitix, where hyperactive rhythms bubble up in between prettier and more restrained passages of ambience.


Kelvin T, full name Tang Fong Ching Kelvin, is a 20-year- old DJ and music producer from Hong Kong. Having started making music since he was in secondary school at the age of 15, Kelvin has managed to finish and self release seven EPs on his own.

In 2016, he joined the forward-thinking Shanghai-based label Genome 6.66 Mbp and subsequently resided in local label Absurd TRAX later that year. Kelvin now runs his own radio show at Hong Kong Community Radio as a radio DJ. His music has received plays on NTS Radio, Radar Radio and RBMA Radio.
