KRUNCH (Homegga Records, Israel)
”THE KRUNCH TIME” has come… On a never ending search for new sounds and ideas, the Krunch style is clearer and more exciting than ever! Previously touring the world as the legendary Dark Soho, the project “Krunch” came together in 2006 and became an instant hit with the release of their debut album in 2008 (Booster: Homegga Records) as well as tracks on many compilations! Constantly experimenting with fresh production styles and sounds, Krunch is a firm favourite in the scene, a truly outstanding sound chosen by the biggest psytrance DJ’s all over the World…and now it’s Krunch time for illumiNaughty!
EPHEDRIX (Dacru Records, Belgium)
One of the most prominent figures in the Belgian psytrance scene, Ephedrix are experts at creating a truly pumping sound – a big fat dose of uplifting melodies, groovy percussion and crystal clear bass lines! Their energetic live act has become renowned, being recognised by party promoters all over the globe! Since the release of their last album (a concoction of powerful remixes met with huge acclaim) the guys have been back in the studio, creating new tracks which ooze masses of energy and breathe the true Ephedrix spirit of playful melodies and driving beats!
FAR TOO LOUD (Funkatech Records, UK)
An illumiNaughty favourite – Far Too Loud, (a.k.a. Oli Cash) has gained a significant reputation in dance music for quality, dancefloor-destroying production. Originally rooted in breakbeat, the FTL sound was quickly recognized as being something different through the influence of other styles of dance music! Since his first performance at illumiNaughty we have been inundated with requests to bring him back – so there’s no better time to do this than our 5th birthday!! Expect hard-hitting beats, dirty basslines, detailed production and twisted sound design that has set FTL apart from the rest.

FAR TOO LOUD (Funkatech Records, UK)
Far Too Loud, a.k.a. Oli Cash, has gained a significant reputation in dance music
for quality, dancefloor-destroying production. Originally rooted in breakbeat, the
FTL sound was quickly recognized as being something different through the influence
of other styles of dance music. Over the past four years the sound has developed and
diversified but maintained the mix of hard-hitting beats, dirty basslines, detailed
production and twisted sound design that has set FTL apart from the rest. This is
evident from the full-on tech-breaks monster “Get High”, which was awarded Best
Single at Breakspoll 2007, to the electro mix of Lily Allen’s “Not Fair”, which was
liked so much that it became part of Lily’s live show and another remix was
Signed to the burgeoning Funkatech records, Far Too Loud has released a string of
singles and remixes that have found their way into the record bags of numerous top
DJs, playlists of top radio stations and tune-of-the-month slots in major dance
music publications. The recognition received through these releases has seen Far Too
Loud DJing all over the world including club appearances in China, Russia and
throughout Europe, as well as two US tours and regular appearances in native UK. The
FTL vibe has been a winner particularly at festivals and rocked crowds at
Glastonbury, Glade, Boom, Burning Man and many more. 2008 saw DJ sets from both the
Breakspoll Awards and Glastonbury Festival broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and also the
introduction of a live laptop-based set of all-original material, mixing up classic
FTL tracks with new beats and psychedelic effects into a peak-time dancefloor
Since 2009 FTL has changed from duo to solo act with original member Dom Smart
leaving to concentrate on a new solo venture. Now under the sole direction of Oli,
who has already singularly produced key FTL tracks and is no stranger to working
solo under the name, the act is as strong as ever with plenty of exciting things to
