Their unique blend of different styles ranging from Electro, House, Disco, Dub and Afro-Cuban sounds have shot them to dance floor fame both independently and as a team and they are by far one of Austria’s most famous acts.

Synthetical
LIVE Electro-toy Band (Sweden)
Sponsored by: The Swedish Embassy for BJ and YAY Media.net for SH


This is not your average electro band; Synthetical challenges the conventions of modern music!  Synthetical is a two-piece toy-electronica band, consisting of Swedish twenty-somethings, Jos and Gustav. With an arsenal of analog synths and electronic toys, they make groovy lofi-sounding music that will remind you of vintage computer games and the hits of the Eighties, but with a fresh twist to it. In little more than a year, Synthetical has made a name for themselves in Scandinavia and Europe and their live performances (including modified toys, Nintendo consoles, vintage synths and even some rap vocals) are quite impressive

Tambour Battant
LIVE Drum 'n' Bass (France)
No Sponsorship


Tambour Battant is a duo from France that improvises in their performances combining elements of drum’n’bass, jungle, hard-step, breakbeat and hip hop in a live format. Though still quite young and only together since 2003, Tambour Battant has already had the chance to work with one of the world’s finest MCs, Jamalski. Definitely not your usual MC/DJ combination, these young up-and-coming b-boys tear up the dancefloor with their innovative, energetic and original sounds.
