Full Metal Rock from Germany
Ende 2008 gründete sich eine neue Formation aus den Trümmern und Resten von Nighttrain.
Mit einem neuen Sänger, einem neuen Gitarristen und letztendlich über eine kleine Anzeige im Internet geworbenen Schlagzeuger, gelang es endlich eine metallische Richtung einzuschlagen, die lange nicht möglich war.
Der Bandname wurde übernommen, da er bereits lokal bekannt war und so gelang es uns den Zug wieder auf die Schienen zu hieven. Nighttrain, Full Metal Rock!
Wir sind jung, aber genau das ist es was niemand erwartet wenn er uns hört... Musik geschrieben mit HERZ und SEELE... und verdammt; wir sind gut.
Funk 70s from Italy

Band Members: Alessandro Paiola (Drums, Vocals) • Riccardo Danieli (Percussion, Vocals) • Nicola Colombo (Keyboard) • Marco Forcione (Guitar) • Carlo Pelsa (Flute) • Beppe Volpini (Bass)
Pop from Italy
Mālā Void is an hymn to creation. It connects my human shape to the inner and the outer of being part of earth and beyond.
It took me 22 years on the music scene to fully let music break into me, flowing in the veins coloured by millions boys and girls met and still to be met. There’s a place where I find words and notes with simplicity; where I can reach a state of conscious relief. Piano has always been my thing, so is for my voice, the computer is something that helps me experiment with my beloved orchestral sounds.
I have an EP that is coming out at the end of 2014, probably will be called “improvisations” - that’s what it is about. Improvising is where I really “let go”, lending myself to the gods and being a piece of human composing in real time notes of creation.
For all the rest, listen to my music, thank you for reading me... wishing you a shiny day.
Electrodance from Italy
Anarcord: electrodance Milanese duo born from the ashes of Xilema in 2003. The meaning of Anarcord is multiple: recall the anarchy of the chord in opposition st the rules but also the "I do not remember" as opposed to "I remember" (Amarcord). The "I do not remember" is the basis of the eternal suffering: those who do not learn from their mistakes is destined to repeat them. 2 LP assets, "Handle with care, devil inside" of 2006 and "Riviera" of 2010, a wide variety of singles and remixes. Important collaborations, from Garbo to Styloo , from Giobia to CH'AB, from Nick Terry (The libertines - Babyshambles) until Andrew "Hippy" Baldwin (Prodigy - UNKLE - Faithless).
My Third Eye
Elektro, Rock and Pop from Germany
3 Musiker aus Magdeburg spielen das, was sie über die Grenzen verschiedener Genres hinaus verbindet. Auf ihrer aktuellen Platte "MTE #1" bewegen sich MY THIRD EYE irgendwo zwischen Elektro, Rock, Indie und Techno. Mit deutschen Texten wandelt man stilsicher auf Pfaden tanzbarer Beats. Die Musik verkörpert die Sehnsucht nach Echtheit und fordert zum gemeinschaftlichen Contra-Dance gegen die Wirklichkeit der Langeweile auf, die wir Heimat nennen. "Was ist gefährlich? Komm, sei mal ehrlich" ist hier der Aufruf zur Wahrnehmung dieser Begrifflichkeiten.
Electro, Ambient, Ethno-Volk, Microfunk,
Nextwave from Russia
Eleonora Zaripova and Kristina Golubkova are two Berlin-based musicians born at the opposite ends of Russia. Russian musical education gave the initial intention to become a part of something great and taught the instinktiv ways of creating and understanding melody and rhythm. Two different points of view met in Berlin 2012 to accomplish each other, without losing the uniqueness and identity.
We are two Russian experimenting musicians, currently studying in Berlin. Our aim is to understand/change/broaden the principles of music perception, especially during live performances. Using abstract lyrics, sound design, ready- and hand-made sounds, making vocal and instrument sounds loose their frames and interrelate are the main points of our work as well as experimenting with video images and researching the issue of synthetic perception. All this create a special music style which may become a new genre in electronic music.
Vortice di Nulla
Progressive / Psichedelica / Sperimentale
I Vortice di Nulla si formano nell'ormai lontano 2004 quando tre amici di vecchia data decidono di formare un gruppo di musica strumentale e psichedelica. Per i primi anni infatti la band si muove in questa direzione, componendo brani caratterizzati da lunghe cavalcate interrotte bruscamente da sfuriate noise. Testimone di questa fase è il demo autoprodotto “Mithosi”, primo lavoro del quartetto cremasco.
Col passare del tempo tuttavia il sound del gruppo si fa più ricercato grazie anche all'aggiunta di synth e tastiere. La maturazione sonora dei Vortice si avverte ascoltando “I'm with Tortillas, throwing stones in the water”, pubblicato nel 2008 per l'etichetta indipendente Trazeroeuno records.
Un ulteriore passo in avanti dal punto di vista compositivo è caratterizzato dal terzo album della band, “The roundabouts mania” (2010), sempre edito da Trazeroeuno e composto da brani diretti e senza fronzoli che attirano critiche positive da diversi addetti ai lavori.
Dopo la registrazione dell'ep “Psychedelic Caballeros” (2011), i Vortice di Nulla si preparano ad entrare in studio per dare luce ad un nuovo lavoro inedito che segna l'ennesima svolta sonora del gruppo. Nel frattempo è arrivato il 2014 e i Vortice di Nulla si preparano a festeggiare dieci anni di amicizia e musica sul palco dello Spirit Of Woodtsock.
Band Members: Ivano Nichetti (Guitar) • Luca Bandini (Bass) • Francesco Innocenti (Guitar) • Matteo Innocenti (Keyboard, Synth,Vocoder) • Daniele Macchi (Guitar, Synth, Vocoder) • Mattia Stringhi (Drums)

Freddy Marx Street
Singer-Songwriter from Ukraine
Freddy Marx Street is electricity to the acoustic guitar. His music is a mix of pop-rock (like One Republic), alternative (like Radiohead), rock (like 30 Seconds To Mars). Emotions and voice are so honest that cut like glass. He is a soldier fighting for the dream. Besides performing music he tells tons of stories during his shows. Those stories are full of laugh and inspiration. They often make you think about yourself. His music passes through you leaving a bundle of good energy.
Hundreds of concerts around the world; the most spectacular debut among independent musicians (USA, 2011); reaching the Abby Road Studio World Competition final with the song "Sorry" (UK, 2013); SPAM laureate (Poland, 2013), FAMA laureate (Poland, 2013).

Heavy Metal from Italy
My Refuge is a band formed in 2010 near Milan, Italy. Its musical style is a blend of Heavy/Power Metal with Prog and Thrash influences. October of that same year saw the release of a five-piece record, the EP "3407 Picture Of An August Night ".
In 2012, with a stable, deeply revamped line-up, the band started creating new stuff and recording new material.

Rock from Italy
DON rodriguez: trio rock italiano in attività da gennaio 2012. I DON rodriguez rappresentano una originale realtà musicale, partcolarmente apprezzata per le linee melodiche, le chitarre taglienti e la solida base ritmica - il tutto con piglio vintage e testi cantautoriali. Liberamente ispirati a Don Rodrigo dei promessi sposi, i DON rodriguez hanno all'attivo la pubblicazione dell'EP sotto forma di demo “Cardiocadute Ep”, 2 brani in presa diretta registrati ad aprile del 2012. “Canzoni per organi a cane” è invece il secondo EP, contenente 6 canzoni sempre in presa diretta e risalenti alla stessa sessione di registrazione, ma editate in seguito. Nonostante la recente storia della band, i DON rodriguez si sono fino ad ora esibiti in molti live ottenendo un ottimo riscontro in termini di pubblico, compresa l’ammissione alle selezioni regionali per Arezzo Wave 2013. Anagraficamente i DON rodriguez sono nati tra il 1975 e il 1978.

Reggae / Rock / Roots Music from Germany
Bereits ihr Debut-Album “rEvolution pARTy", welches im Sommer 2012 erschien, überzeugte an Songs, Sound und Lyrics nicht nur Reggaefans sondern auch Presse und Radio. Tommy Kaub's gnadenlose Stimme und charismatisch-aggressives Gitarrenspiel setzen Zeichen, wie auch seine - entgegen des Mainstream - äußerst politisch kritischen Texte und Inhalte. Tommy entsprang in den 90's der bekannten Mannheimer Musiker-Schmiede “Alte Feuerwache“; durchlebte einige Bands, Produktionen und Projekte, ehe er im April 2007 aus einer Crew gestandener Profimusiker die Reggaeband SUPERJAM gründete.
Inspiriert von der ROOTMISSION-Tour 2013 all over Reggae-Germany mit tollen Artists wie Mellow Mark, Ras Abraham, Singing U., The Busters, Mad Professor, Joe Ariwa, Redhed & Lady Marga, beginnen Anfang 2014 die Aufnahmen für das 2. Studio-Album “ROOTMISSION“.
SUPERJAM präsentieren aber nicht nur eigene Songs, sondern auch alle Kracher von Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Diana King, Sean Paul, UB40, Inner Circle, Rihanna, 10CC, Eddy Grant, Alicia Keys, Eagles, Garland Jeffries, Dawn Penn und vielen mehr....
Eine international und top besetzte Band um Sänger und Guitar-Hero Tommy Kaub bringen Publikum und Stimmung mit Best of Reggae zum Überkochen.
ROCKING FOR LOVE, SINGING FOR PEACE, JAMMING FOR FREEDOM

Combat Folk from Italy
Il termine "brandafeu" è un piemontesismo che significa più o meno " attizza il fuoco". Il significato nel contesto discorsivo è "andare al massimo!". Il nome già spiega bene l'indole del gruppo che nasce ad ottobre 2012 con lo scopo di dare il massimo nella musica e nel divertimento, dei musicisti e di chi li segue.
Il genere è il folk-rock, o combat folk, come si usa dire adesso. La musica e il divertimento sono quindi l'anima di questo gruppo che si prefigge di entrare nelle orecchie e nel cuore di tutte le persone che incroceranno, volenti o nolenti, il suo cammino!
Band Members: Luigi Allerino (Vocals) • Fabio Ratto (Accordion) • Marco Capello: (Drums) • Iwan Grossen (Bass) • Ivo Gribaudo (Guitar) • Tommi Aliberti (Guitar) • Angelo Aimassi (Trumpet)
