SAAND was just nominated as #7 Breakthrough Underground Artist of 2015 (see here) and this will be his 1st release of the new year. Los Angeles based Michael Sandler’s accomplishments span across a variety of genres and pseudonyms. As SAAND, his melancholic audio tales are no doubt intended to motivate a floor over the course of an evening. The sulky textures that flow through SAAND’s palette add depth while simultaneously controlling the intensity of the music. SAAND consistently demonstrates control over the pace of his music and this skill will allow any melancholic shade of house music to flourish with enthusiasm. SAAND’s ability has amassed a punchy resume of performances that cover some lustrous festivals including Lightning in a Bottle, Woogie Weekend, and Mexico’s BPM among others. His releases are found riddled across affluent labels that are also pushing the envelope in their own way. Favorites including Dilate, Motek, Union Jack, and Sol Selectas can all be found highlighting SAAND’s work. In addition to having some of the world’s biggest DJ’s play and feature his music, SAAND has worked with cutting edge artists such as Till Von Sein, Tigerskin, Dance Spirit, Powel, Balcazar & Sordo, HearthuG, Jonny Cruz, Andre Salmon, David Scuba, Raw District, Namito, Kosmas, Derek Marin, Ashley Wild, and Clayton Steele just to name a few. Outside of SAAND’s musical prowess, his contribution to the southern California based music publication Music is 4 Lovers shouldn’t be short changed. As the Director and Senior Editor, Michael regularly exhibits years of music knowledge to the outlet which has helped advance its reach far beyond its California walls. Music Is 4 Lovers has distinguished itself as a prominent independent music publication and Michael’s influence is clear. Frankly, this is a great example of what makes an artist and a taste maker.
Berlin based Deep House DJ and producer POWEL is the author of stellar remixes and productions of incredible musicality. His signature rhythms, percussion work and captivating atmospheres have that amazing ability to take you into the depth of aural pleasure.
Growing up in the outskirts of Berlin, POWEL’s musical journey began in his early days as he played in several bands since he was 14 years old. Today, while keeping up with his other projects, his main focus lies on his DJing and producing efforts.
Starting out with “Perelin, der Nachtwald”, released on a split EP compiled by Berlin based label Keller, his first EP “Shake The Birds Of The Tree” followed shortly after on Wunderbar Recordings early in 2013. With his follow up master piece, the “Cloud City EP”, POWEL joined the roster of UK based Fina Records, well and truly putting him on the map, and slotting in alongside MOVE D, COTTAM and LEIF. POWEL’s deep and warm sound finds admirers all over the globe, so it didn’t take long till masters such as LUIS JUNIOR and legend LEFTFIELD requested remixes which gained him quite the attention. With four successful US tours, gigs at major festivals such as Sonar Barcelona and Fusion and international releases, POWEL went on builing a profile globally.
For a little over a year now, POWEL has been closely working together with renowned DJs and producers MATTHEW DEKAY and LEE BURRIDGE and joined the roster of their well-established US-label All Day I Dream. His latest EP “Crash Landing On Laputa” was released this July and as a part of the ADID community, lots of amazing projects are bound to happen in 2016.

About Till Von Sein
Alongside his trademark sound, Till von Sein exudes an aura of noble grandeur mixed with the genuine enthusiasm of a child with a favourite toy when he’s busy in the DJ booth. But Tilly’s toy, which in this case is house and its countless derivatives, won’t ever end up forgotten in the corner. Long after the wrapping paper has been thrown away, what Till loves has yet to lose its magic. For von Sein, the sound of an 808 clap triggers a state of ecstasy, which in his hands emerges as pure euphoria on the dance floor. Time and again, his thumping transitions and heart-racing sets send listeners into overdrive, revealing the very core of house, soul and techno, while hitting on just what makes these genres so exciting. Despite his intimate knowledge of the industry, which might allow him to slip easily into a been-there-done-that attitude, Till von Sein shows non-stop enthusiasm. For the last ten years, he has run the internationally active Clique Bookings at the side of Claudia Marquardt. More recently, his work as a producer has grown to encompass a vast catalogue of releases on labels such as Suol, Dirt Crew and Supplement Facts. He has collaborated with artists such as Tigerskin, Aera, Chopstick and Catz’n’Dogz, and his DJ work has long been a fixture in the international club scene. After his 2011 solo album “#LTD” (Suol), von Sein enjoyed a fully booked calendar and successful tour through South Africa, Japan, USA and Europe. He continues to ride a wave of success. In 2013, he released his personal contribution to the Suol Mates mix series, and further EP releases are in the works. Upcoming projects for 2014 include a new solo album and a project with producer and friend Tigerskin.
