After the overwhelming success of De:bug’s last installment as part of Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival, which saw 2500 hungry ravers attend one of the most banging parties the city has seen in some time. With a dedication to outdoing themselves each time, De:Bug have gone all out with their bookings, bringing some of the most celebrated luminaries of house and techno to Sheffield’s Fez Club.

Heidi in the Boiler Room

First up is the first lady of house and techno, one of the most notoriously brilliant DJs working in Europe at the moment - Heidi. The Canadian national knows exactly what it takes to tear apart a dancefloor. Since moving to London in 2000 and immersing herself in the world of dance music, becoming a vinyl junkie and later a DJ, Heidi has over a period of time proved her undeniable skill as both a label boss and disc jockey.

In 2004 Get Physical took note of the hype around Heidi, leading to her moving again to Berlin and becoming a part of the thriving techno and house scene there. In recent times she has become a member of the ‘In New DJs We Trust’ feature on radio one, and, perhaps most notably, thrown her own Jackathon parties which, alongside Cassy and Huxley have become the stuff of legends. You only need check out their performance on Boiler Room to get a feel for what she is all about.

Tom Demac (Live)

She will be joined by a live performance from Tom Demac. The Welsh producer has really come into his own in recent times with a number of releases on hypercolour, and its offshoot Glass Table. His hard to define sound lies somewhere in between techno and house, with rich analogue textures bringing the sound together in true Demac style. His live sets have become renowned for his displays of exciting walls of sound, vintage drum sounds, analogous experiments all with a contemporary groove that is completely irresistible. His last appearance at De:bug went off, expect the same this time out.

Tom Demac - Critical Distance Part 2

Rounding off proceedings will be DJ Sneak favourite and veritable up and coming talent - De Sluwe Vos. With an infectious, raw approach to his craft, expect riproaring house music that takes no prisoners, in the classic relentless style of the Chicago house greats.

De:Bug’s latest installment is looking pretty damn sweet, a pulversing line up of the hottest underground artists at the moment.
