DJ Stingray 313:

MASKED CRUSADER TO MOUNT CAUSTIC DETROIT ELECTRO ASSAULT

Greeting the crowd in his signature black balaclava is another scene heavyweight on this year’s line-up. DJ Stingray 303 aka Sherard Ingram is a Detroit native and former Drexciya associate with three decades of experience under his belt. If his looming presence isn’t menacing enough yet to keep you on your toes, rest assured that the frantic, dystopian techno cuts coming next will drive you out of your comfort zone in no time, before locking you in just the right frame of mind from where he can exact his well-honed brand of voodoo. 

Afra:

CLUB-READY DETROIT ELECTRO, TECHNO, AND DIVERSE ELECTRONICS

Years after a long hiatus prematurely cut short what was to be a burgeoning DJ career, Afra made a comeback. Older and wiser, she’s returned to her first love. Just like before, it didn’t take long before she was once again singled out as a breakthrough talent. Afra is the second SPIELRAUM resident to be featured on this year’s The Crave line-up. Her sets are a fascinating clash of genres, balancing classic Detroit techno with contemporary rave and breakbeats to sublime effect. This time round, we’ve got a hunch AFRA is here to stay.
