Answer Code Request:
Both as a DJ and a producer, Patrick Gräser aka Answer Code Request has honed a hybrid musical approach that stands out in a world of uniform 4/4 techno. Melding pad-driven harmonies, intricate breaks and an industrial sonic palette, Gräser has occupied a unique space within the Ostgut Ton cosmos since debuting on the label in 2012 and becoming a Berghain resident shortly thereafter. His various releases and remixes for Ostgut Ton, MDR, Dolly Deluxe and Monkeytown Records continue to be highly sought after. As a DJ, he has taken his bass- and breaks-heavy techno to clubs and festivals around the globe, while remaining an integral part of the Berlin scene.
From footwork to electro to house to jungle; Lorna taps into the rhythm of the room. She has spent decades behind the decks, playing at legendary clubs across the world, but it is in the small, dark clubs and warehouse spaces that Lorna really connects through angular sounds and rolling rhythms.
Barney Kato, an active presence in the world of dance music for over 23 years, merges the magic of collective harmony and music, regularly captivating Eora / Sydney with his dynamic DJ sets and popular events like Alien and Breakbeat Chaos. As a globetrotter, an aficionado of futurist dance music, and a collector of experiences, he sees the DJ booth as an epicenter of energy manipulation, mixing classic and cutting-edge elements to move dancefloors of all sizes, reshaping experiences beyond familiar anthems. A resident of Sydney's Club 77, Barney curates nights, trains budding talents, and has made significant contributions to Newcastle and Sydney's electronic music scene since 2000, which include running parties, working in record stores, managing a record label, and hosting Fbi Radio Thursday Sunset for 15 years. Barney's DJ career highlights include spinning records at Australia's most iconic parties and festivals like Big Day Out, Splendour In The Grass, and more recently a set for Boiler at legendary Sydney venue, Hordern Pavilion.
