ADLAS & DJ ION
ADLAS and DJ ION have been friends long before their musical career started. In their teen years they were unified by a mutual love for hip hop and graffiti, which to this day stays a strong influence. After hip hop there came techno for these two. Together they went on to discover gems of past decades and learn more about this new music they were into. The interest didn’t stay limited to techno tough. House, electro, dubstep and electronic music in general are relevant and important sources of inspiration to this day for both of them. Their sound can be described as a techno centered occupation with electronic music. In their sets they display a mix of old and contemporary techno, Electro, house and whatever fits the bpm with a special interest in UK and US sound. They try to keep their musical program diverse and interesting and renounce from the ever dark greyscale techno. In January 2015 Adlas and DJ Ion launched the KRACH party series together as a chance for them to share their musical pursuit with a bigger audience.
It’s about a phantom, a weird phantomas of the club scene, who enters the stage again and again in new appearances, autonomously taking his place. He fills the space with life, makes folks smile, and disappears again.

Maria Psycho desires to change normality, colour life, and subvert established gender norms. He would like to help make space for difference in society and likes to point at the possibility of realizing one’s true self and that it is always worth to embody what makes oneself happy.
