WE STILL BELIEVE
➤ The Blessed Madonna
"I wasn't allowed to leave the house more than maybe… six times in a year because I was high risk. So I made an entire album at home, sold it to Warner Brothers, then threw it in the trash and spent a year making the right album. I can't believe who I talked into that room. I think people are going to be very shocked when they find out. I had no idea what I was doing, but I knew this was it. This was the moonshot. When I could finally leave the house, I spent fifty hours a week with my best friends in a studio for a year, until for me it's unimpeachable. I don't honestly know how many records we made, but this is it. This is love, loss, ecstasy, death and resurrection on the dance floor. That's what this album will be."
– The Blessed Madonna
Prophesied and promised, rumoured, remade and restarted, The Blessed Madonna began her music career in illegal rave promotion as a teen. Since then, she has grown into one of the most sought after and respected producers, song writers, and DJs in the world, boasting a residency at the legendary SmartBar and spearheading the kaleidoscopic “We Still Believe” events. Her reputation as a sublime technician behind the decks and selector has cemented a legacy of fluent and dynamic sets, spanning from disco to techno to house and back. A legend in her own right, The Blessed Madonna functions amphibiously in the sweaty dank depths of dance music’s underground and while soaking effortlessly in the same mainstream waters as Dua Lipa, Madonna, Florence and Elton John.

➤ Marie Montexier
As a DJ, Marie Montexier's sound is slick and dynamic, bringing together electrifying grooves from all eras and corners of the globe—classic rave cuts and modern club sounds, thumping party-rockers syncopated beat experiments, all of it mixed seamlessly on vinyl via elegant blends, tight cuts and the occasional cheeky spinback. She's played many of the world's best clubs, including fabric, Berghain, and De School, as well as festivals like Pitch Australia, DGTL Amsterdam, Lente Kabinet, Butik, Waterworks, Love International and Pollerwiesen, while holding a residency at the Berlin party Warning and hosting a show on HÖR. In 2021, she co-founded Précey, a collective dedicated to supporting women, lesbian and nonbinary artists in the male-dominated world of dance music. The same year, she launched Paryìa, a label pushing a striking blend of club and experimental sounds, mostly from as-yet unknown artists. Her label, like her DJ sets, makes it perfectly obvious: Marie Montexier is an essential new voice in today's electronic music landscape.

POLYXENE is a dynamic, prolific DJ, cherished in Vienna but hailing from Athens. With a sound engineering background, an insatiable digging habit and a sublime dancing energy, she knows how to raise eyebrows and to ignite the dancefloors. She usually spins a mix of electro, acid and breaks but can't help to spice things up with exciting new bass & leftfield techno.
