  • Growling Mad Scientists

    The groundbreaking psychedelic trance group Growling Mad Scientists are Riktam Matkin and Bansi Quinteros, who regularly tour the world. Their mind blowing music pushes and blurs sonic boundaries and has inspired both producers and punters alike, making G.M.S. one of the most in-demand live electronic music acts in the world.

    Having graduated from spinning for small parties and clubs to performing at mega-festivals like Dance Valley and The Boom and packing super big clubs line New York's Avalon & Ibiza’s Privilege. G.M.S. aren't ones to rest on their laurels.




  • John 00 Fleming is an artist who has achieved international success in a career spanning over 20 years without dishonouring his musical essence or fans. With over 10 million album sales and 30 produced mix compilations, John’s a proven musical pioneer whose essence lies in what his fans call, ‘the J00F sound’. The J00F sound is as unpretentious as the artist, and is best described as deep and textured progressively edged trance, in an electronic dance music style that is an antithesis to what is normally produced within the genre.

    In an industry rife in self worship and mirror gazing, John is characterised by a passion and ability to connect audiences by injecting his unique underground musical style, and not his ego, into the mainstream vein. This connection has manifested in ten mix compilations and five singles in the UK Top 40 charts on iconic labels: Virgin, EMI and Warner Music. It has also seen him headline major events worldwide, seeing in over 10,000 appearances at the likes of; Ministry of Sound, Godskitchen, Digital Society and Global Gathering, through to Holland’s Dance Valley, Serbia’s Exit Festival, Brazil’s Exxxperience, Australia’s Future music festivals, Belgium’s Tomorrowland, and the U.S.A’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC).
    John’s renown lies in his desire to give back to his fans. His much lauded 2010 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix has spawned J00F Editions, an international tour which innovatively refocuses the music onto the club and its clubbers. J00F Editions resurrects the scene of old, and reintroduces the clubbing experience to extended sets, new sounds and new artists to deliver a true musical journey devoid of fluff and predictive cliché that has quickly gained international respect, residencies and support from other leading figures such as Dave Seaman, Sister Bliss, Avalon, Passion and Ministry of sound. JOOF Editions has been a huge success touring over 80 venues in the last two years.

    John’s record label, J00F Recordings, and his monthly radio show, Global Trance Grooves, broadcast on iTunes and DI. FM provides John another path to walk his own line. Here, he promotes rising stars in addition to giving over four million subscribed fans the latest in J00F’s inimitable sounds.

    John is also one of a select few endorsed by Pioneer. As the industry heavyweights inside every DJ booth, John provides subject matter expertise and consultancy in a partnership which ensures the upward evolution of the electronic music world’s tools of the trade.
    John’s esteem within the industry has garnered respect from electronica luminaries like Jean Michael Jarre, Muse and Simple Minds, and while humbly accepting peer endorsement he continues to let his production skills do the talking. Following the release of his debut artist album ‘Nine Lives’ in August 2011, John switched his focus to scoring for major network TV and films. Working alongside The Royal Philharmonic orchestra at the famed Abbey road studios, London (home of The Beatles) his work has featured in the soundtracks to shows on BBC, Fox, and NBC and in films released by Universal, Warner, Sony and others. Diversifying his talents into the soundtrack world, John honed a separate facet of his artistic identity, and gave himself the freedom to focus on his sophomore album ‘One.Hunderd.ten WKO’ released in March 2013. Already being tipped as electronic album of the year by The Daily mail national newspaper.

    2013 will also see the launch of the J00F Music Group, bringing together like-minded artists and DJs from labels such as Platipus, Mistiquemusic, Baroque, Renaissance and John's own J00F Records imprint, with the aim of creating a unified platform from which to launch the next wave of deep space expeditions into the serious side of trance and progressive. With underground resistance gathering momentum, the future looks bright for this sleeper movement of contemporary club culture.
    John 00 Fleming is a performer who adroitly crafts something musically organic from the inorganic, artfully opening your senses into a genre far more pervasive than you currently know. Challenge yourself, and get intelligently immersed, inside his adventurous odysseys.

  • mary miss fairy knows how to work a crowd, as many of you will have experienced at her debut set for IllumiNaughty at our Halloween Takeover event in 2012 – the first outing of the illumiNasty room that has developed into an almost infamous rival of the trance sounds of the bigger brother illumiNaughty room.

    Well things haven’t stopped for Mary Miss Fairy since then, from touring across the UK and Europe, from performing on Pirate Ships at Shambala Festival among many this summer, to showcasing her fantastic vocals with “Atomic Drop” who she will be sharing the stage with on the 8th of February for their song “Inside My Head”.

  • The Dub Smugglers Soundsystem has become quite the well known name on the Manchester scene, and are the perfect headliner to the Drop Soundystem outdoor tent for IllumiNaughty’s 8th Birthday on the 8th of February. Truly revolutionizing IllumiNaughty’s festival atmosphere, the Drop stage hosts a wide range of bands and DJs with a large focus on Dub and Reggae of which the Dub Smugglers are expert selectors.

    Having hosted nights in Manchester and beyond, such as their sold out night featuring the Resonators back in late 2013 and played abroad at festivals such as Outlook among many the Dub Smugglers are set to get your grooving at the Masked Ball Part 2 as part of a vibrant and eclectic lineup in the Drop Tent!
