Perfect Stranger is the stage name for California based, Israeli electronic musician Yuli Fershtat. The Perfect Stranger project was created in February 2005 and within 2 years of it’s debut became critically acclaimed all over the globe. Perfect Stranger ultimately created his own sub-genre in the psychedelic scene by presenting a totally distinctive sound characterized by groovy playful beats and patiently built compositions that often bridge between progressive trance and techno with a presence of tribal and psychedelic elements.
Perfect Stranger has released 3 full artist albums, 3 remix albums, 3 compilations and appears on well over a hundred other releases (compilations, EP’s, albums, etc). He also owns & runs the “Digital Structures” label, where he publishes more Tech orientated sounds under the Yuli Fershtat moniker.
All that I touch, And all that I see, All that I taste, All I feel
All that I love, All that I hate, All I distrust, All I save
All that I give, All that I deal, All that I buy, Beg, Borrow or Steal
All I create, All I destroy, All that I do, All that I say
All that I eat, Everyone I meet, All that I slight, Everyone I fight
All that is now, All that is gone. All that’s to come…
And everything under the sun is in tune :)……..
Wow, a new face with some big talent that I discovered on Youtube. She plays great music, Psytech. Lovely energy and vibe.
Born and based in Sao Paulo, Fernanda is passionate for exploring senses that music brings to people. Her musical identity has aroused curiosity from people all over the world. Using sounds that fluctuates from Progressive House to Techno, she does not like to label her style with names, Fernanda believes everything is in constant change.
During her period living in Australia, she has acquired a heavy experience as resident dj at Dragonfruit and got a next level performances playing at big clubs and festivals there.
Now in Brazil she represents one of the most influential artists in the local scene in São Paulo, her performances were in big clubs like D-Edge and Club 88, also festivals like Adhana and Soulvision. Pistelli had played along Boris Brejcha and Ann Clue in their label showcase, F*cking Serious. She is one of the biggest feminine talent raising in Brazil at the moment.
“Music is the universal language of love. I hope to play with people’s emotions, not only play for them”.

The sound is distinct and has infiltrated the electronic dance music scene worldwide, with our artists representing on some of the biggest stages in the world. With its massive roster of talented artists and Djs from around the world, the Zenon collective will continue to grow and inspire each other to take it to the next level.
Sourone (Michal Kalinowski) is a one person musical project focused on widely understood electronic music . His fascination with electronic music took from a young age, but he started production in 2005. Since then, he’s in love with sequences ,envelopes and automations. His work is characterized by two poles. The first revolves around a progressive minimal and tech trance, which seeks to draw from the various, sometimes very different forms like dubstep, electro, and even amen d’n’b . Very easy to notice his fascination with glitch. In this matter Sourone had an honor to release on compilations on some bigger labels. The second pole of his music is melodic, broken electronics – idm, minimal dnb. from this side u can feel his distinctive flow, but the form itself is different from the opposite pole. “evil” factor and the dark harmony is replaced by the light side. The two poles are inspired by each other, and sometimes penetrating through synergy, new ideas and new sounds. Also as Enoruos – his side project – he is creating abstract and melodic experimental .
Sourone launched his live act in 2008 when he played his first live performance. Since then he had opportunity to appear on lotsa line ups.

BEFORE entering Pietermaritzburg, take the R603 (Umlaas Road/Richmond exit), and as you come off the exit, turn right onto the R603 towards Richmond – 29kms away. After about 5kms, there is a fork in the road, keep left towards Richmond – this is the R56. Take the turn-off into Richmond (NOT the first sign that says Richmond Hospital). Drive directly through Richmond along Shepstone Street, and 1km out of town take the left hand turn to Hella Hella. Continue on tar for 15km and then wind down into the valley on an excellent gravel road. After 22kms, you will see the entrance to the Hella Hella Adventure Centre Our gate on your left (approx 500m before the Mkomazi River). If you get to the river, you have gone too far !!
Hella Hella Adventure Centre can also be reached by following the Hella Hella signs on the Ixopo / Donnybrook road (612). At Lufafa Road, take the right hand turnoff which is the D114 to Hella Hella.

Traveling from this direction, the Reception is approx 500m after you’ve crossed the Mkomazi River, first entrance on the right.
From Joburg / Pietermaritzburg, take the N3 toward Durban. Take the R603 ( Umlaas / Richmond road exit ) and take the R603 Richmond exit. From there you follow the directions as per above from Durban. As you are now on the same road.
