Liebe Freund*innen der gebrochenen Beats und der tiefen Bässe, stampfender Kicks und ACID-Lines:
es ist endlich wieder soweit: Am Freitag, den 21.4. veranstalten wir wieder eine Oszillate im Epplehaus!
DJ FLIGHT (London)
DJ Flight is widely regarded as one of the foundations of Drum & Bass and a pioneer of dance music. As a DJ and a radio presenter, she has been at the forefront of the scene’s transitional periods by championing underground music and eclectic producers. Flight draws attention from beyond the genre due to her exquisite live sets that emanate deeper shades of Drum & Bass.
Flight gained worldwide recognition when she became the first woman to host a national weekly Drum & Bass show. The Next Chapter on BBC 1Xtra was a seminal fixture that quickly became The Holy Grail for discovering new styles and experimental sounds.
Flight has held residencies at Metalheadz and Swerve, produced tunes with Breakage, and released music on 31, Critical, Bassbin, and Product. In 2005, she started her own label, Play:Musik which launched the career of Martyn.
Flight plays Drum & Bass and More Styles sets and has been nominated for a DJ Mag Best of British award. Her music has sprawled into art and film, seeing her perform at the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and Theaster Gates’ installation for Prada Mode during Frieze week.
She is the co-founder of EQ50, a collective of women addressing inequality and representation in dance music. In 2020, the collective launched the first ever Drum & Bass mentorship programme for womxn.
Flight is a producer for the Prison Radio Association, a multi award-winning charity which runs the world’s only national station for prisoners, and aims to reduce reoffending through the power of radio. In 2020, she produced the Windrush Stories podcast series and documentary which garnered widespread acclaim for its beautiful exploration of the Caribbean experience in Britain.
DJ Flight is often cited as one of the originators of the dance music scene and has appeared on Woman’s Hour, Radio 1, and the British Council’s Selector Radio to celebrate her history as a Black woman DJ and broadcaster.
Her sets are a high-energy blend of fast-paced beats, heavy basslines, and intricate mixes that keep the crowd dancing all night long.
Introducing the unstoppable force of the German jungle drum and bass scene, the
one and only L-Zetto! Hailing from the dynamic Reutlingen/Tübingen region, L-Zetto is a master of breakbeat rave music, delivering mind-blowing beats and electrifying basslines that will leave you breathless. As a member of the renowned Oszillate Crew, L-ZettO has honed his craft and developed a reputation for delivering unforgettable sets that push the boundaries of what’s possible in electronic music. Whether he’s tearing up the dancefloor with his explosive mixes or taking listeners on a journey through the deepest depths of jungle and drum and bass, L-Zetto always delivers. With a passion for music that shines through every note and beat, L-Zetto is a force to be to be reckoned with!
…takes the audience on a techno-rave-acid-electro journey. Minimalist and pathetic. Break beat meets four on the floor. Whether as a DJ or as a hybrid live set, he will take you with him into a tunnel somewhere between the nineties and the year 2049.
Seine Sets sind druckvoll, groovig und je nach Setting und Publikum auch breit gefächert.
Angefangen hat der Vinylliebhaber mit French Disco und Deep House. Inzwischen ist Audiomym stiltechnisch zwischen Bouncehouse, Acid und hypnotischen Techno anzusiedeln, wobei es für Ihn grundsätzlich keine Stilgrenzen gibt, solange es im Herzen und auf der Tanzfläche funktioniert.
The 24 year old stuttgarter dj “nazz” has been falling in love with groove music over the last two years. Her journey to groove started with producing drum and bass tracks and finding out how more kicks and hats have a positive influence on the track. After that she started looking for groove tracks and is still adding new tracks to her playlist today. Compared to mixing hardtechno nazz prefers the therapeutic and more interesting sound of groove tracks and mixing them (but also likes the energy of mixing hardtechno tracks). Playing a groove set in the club is also a complete different vibe and feeling which nazz really enjoys. Hope you can feel the groovy vibes too and enjoy the set!

Thomas Maos and his electronic guitar
Sein aktuelles Solo Album glühen wurde 2021 im Bereich Grenzgänge für den Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik nominiert. Tom Greenland vom NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD schreibt darüber: …Der dramatische Bogen vieler seiner Tracks wird größtenteils von Kontrasten in Klangfarbe und Textur getragen, die so abgemischt sind, dass jeder markante Klang auf die gegenüberliegenden Seiten der Stereomischung verschoben wird, wodurch ein einnehmender “Dialog” entsteht.“
…is a musician, media artist and computer scientist. His work focuses on testing the limits of hardware and software. Glitches are an inevitable part of this process, which he consciously uses to his advantage. Another characteristic feature of his work is the direct interaction between sound and image as well as a two-way exchange between the audience and the piece. All of his work is created in real time – in the moment – making each performance unique. Real-time audio processing, machine learning and AI, live coding and numerous experimental devices are used to create an immersive viewing and listening experience.
Geargrind extemporises electronic music, live, with only little preparation before each show, which makes every performance unique. No software is involved in any of his shows. Instead, he uses digital and analog instruments to create a sound that oscillates between spheric-synthetic ambient sounds and hard acid trance.
Philomène Robinne aka Philo proves you don’t need decades of experience to understand and push boundaries of a genre. With national and international recognition, Philo’s originally vinyl-exclusive selection has evolved over time into a digital hybrid in the pursuit of the best possible sound. A regular on UK lineups, Philo just played a slot at Londons legendary Rupture and moved between festivals this summer, such as Fusion or croatian Membrain festival.
Characteristics of her eclectic selection involve rough UK bass, which is somewhere between breakbeat, 4 to the floor, dubby bassbin jungle and footwork, with a splash of classic 90s aswell as (progressive) house influences according to the maxim ” keep moving forward“!
Not long ago she started producing and released on Headlight Records, Nice & Deadly, nonesuch, Stereo45, Defrostatica and Miura Records- more to come soon
In the sets of Syncope there is a whole range of drum & bass subgenres to discover. Everything that sounds spherical-melodic, dark and broken or deep and driving is on the plates anyway and everything that sounds somehow different usually does too. As a DJ, Syncope has been on the road a lot in the Cologne area and was a guest at various parties and part of the drum & bass radio show 12 Zoll at the Hochschulradio Kölncampus.
