J.A.K.A.M. (NXS / CROSSPOINT)native of Tokyo, has been one of the leading figures developing music scenes in Japan from the early 90s as a DJ, producer, label owner and a band member. He has been exposed to all genres of music from House, Hip Hop, Drum&Bass, Techno, Reggae, Jazz, Rock to World Music. He combines these inspirations and turns them into a sound that's sort of a fusion of early stage tribal house and world music with a touch of tribal vibes. His one of a kind music offers the most unique experience on a dance floor. From his travel around the world, recording music and DJing, he has extended his fans on both sides of the decks, listeners and artists.

TUSHEN RAÏ - (HARD FIST - Lyon, France)With creating Hard Fist, Tushen Raï has found a way to bring together his two passions: collecting records and travelling. From Turkish psychedelism to Romanian cold wave or tribal african techno, his undeniable dancing sets are fed with powerful soul voices, weirdo beats and unknown instruments. He sees music as a reflection of the world, and the dancefloor as a place to cross cultures and bring open-minded people together. In 2018 he release his first EP “Lights Of Khonvoum” with his partner in crime Cornelius Doctor on his own label Hard Fist which have being qualified by Mixmax as “one of the most interesting EP of 2018”. 2019 will be marked by a second EP promised in April on Tom Tom Disco records, the label of Richard Rossa, a new residency at the prestigious Rex Club in Paris and many podcasts and remix.

TUSHEN RAÏ - (HARD FIST - Lyon, France)CORNELIUS DOCTOR (HARD FIST - Lyon, France)
Cornelius Doctor signed the first EP of the label and plays very often in dark places such as Garçon Sauvage parties at Le Sucre or the Renate's Red Room in Berlin exploring discoïde sounds and sexual electronic music grooves. The mysterious guy is going through the night wearing a bathrobe and velvet gloves, pushing the limits of club music far far away... 2019 will be marked by a second EP promised in April on Tom Tom Disco records, the label of Richard Rossa, some tracks for Ombra International, Crosspoint & Serenades records and a new residency at the prestigious Rex Club in Paris.
