Every one needs a little Kontact!
Kontact land at Stereo for a rapturous showcase of their ground breaking sound. One of the most froward thinking labels in the Eurpean scene since their inception. Zacharias Tiempo, Stiofan Grego and RedSteve will confidently lay down the vibe that has got some off the movers and shakers keenly watching their progression.
Zacharias Tiempo, a Helsinki native, found his passion for house and techno while working his way through the London underground scene. Indelibly sparking the inspiration to bring back the energy and transpose it upon the Helsinki soundscape.
Gracing the cream of some the biggest clubs in the world such as Pacha, Ministry Of Sound and London’s infamous Turnmills. Continually pushing the boundaries of his sound, where it really matters, on the dance floor. Appearances alongside heavy weight artists in the form of Paco Osuna, Hector (Vatos Locos), Luigi Madonna, Chus&Ceballos, Coyu, Christian Smith, Oscar L, Rafa Barrios, Metodi Hristov, Wally Lopez, Roger Sanchez and Danny Rampling to name a just a few. Being one part of exciting and innovative Kontact and quickly becoming one of Finland’s most sought after artists. You can also catch his sound regularly grooving across the airwaves with frequent radio appearances, including the seminal Ibiza Global Radio. Passion, is a fire in the heart and Zacharias’s flames burn high.
Stiofan Grego Belfast born, Helsinki based artist and co-founder of Kontact label along with Zacharias Tiempo. Stiofan continues to evolve his unique take on tearing up a dance floor. Being from Belfast has installed a no nonsense approach to his DJ sets. The groove laden vibe, with its own particular darkness and light has supported industry stalwarts such as Luigi Madonna , Raudive, Spectre, Sankeys queen Mistress DeFunk, Chris Fink (Bugged Out), Kaiser Souzai and the legends that are K Klass. Well supported releases, ''Ichinen'' and ''My Girls'' have propelled Stiofan into the fast lane. With many years playing tirelessly around the Irish and UK scenes. Stiofan has pushed forward the throbbing underground sound of his birth place with the mystical Kontact parties. Now based in Helsinki its a new dawn and a new way everyday.
RedSteve is something of an enigma. Prides myself in making experimental electronic music. Pushing the boundaries of all established conventions. Since his debut ''Razzonator'' broke his sound in 2015. His unique take on techno in his live sets have produced memories that are more than chemical. With support for his sound from the likes of Schmutz, seeing his tracks regularly hammered at the infamous Berghain and Panorama Bar in Berlin.
Get ready folks this is going to be a smasher xxx
