Ivan Smagghe
Ivan Smagghe belongs to a top table of DJs that journalists like to lazily describe as “The DJ’s DJs”. Along with the likes of occasional partner-in-crime Andrew Weatherall, Ivan has the ability to play music like a raw conduit between his famously obscure records and the dancefloor’s strobe-soaked bodies, injecting something of himself seamlessly into the mix along the way.

Since 2013 Ivan has also been running his own imprint, Les Disques de la Mort. The label is very much an outlet for his own unique taste in music: new kids & old friends (Erol Alkan, Zongamin, Manfredas, Golden Bug, Marc Pinol), and reissues (003 is composed of edits of Israeli cold wave).

Desert Sound Colony (Holding Hands Records)
Champion producer, label head and surk Deeej. There’s no doubt that Holding Hands is one of the most exciting labels around right now. Whether it’s the numerous choice cuts by DSC himself, Breaka’s now infamous 12” or the new scorching plate from the man Pits, every release is buy on sight.

Liam has just got back from some properly tidy gigs around Europe and is quickly building a reputation as a serious party postman. He always delivers…

ELLES (LIVE SET) (Naive/Love on the Rocks/RINSE)
After releases on Naive and Love on the Rocks as well as a string of releases for International Womens Day ELLES is going to be bringing her live set to Corisca for the first time. This will be something special as she is not only a talented producer but has an ear for some of the most tasteful music ever wave formed.

Seven Hills Records
Seven Hills run their label out of Sheffield but are now based in London with a string of wicked releases already under their belt. A group of really talented DJs too, effortlessly able to flick through genres and tempos whilst maintaining groove and danceability. They bring their sound to the speaker staxxxxx of Corsica.

Patrisha (Balamii)
Fade to Zaire resident who is no stranger to the Corsica main room.

Fade to Zaire
Two people who should know better…
