Psyk is firmly pegged to the actual techno scene nowadays. He doesn’t seem to deviate from his trajectory justifying his precocious artistic ascension. Note that Psyk signed his first release with MINUS, at the age of 19.

Psyk, aka Manuel Anós, is a solid staple of the current techno scene and doesn’t seem to have gone off course since his precocious artistic ascension. He was first initiated to the mechanical sounds of techno in his birthplace Madrid, through the musical melancholy of Plastikman, and the boiling techno of Jeff Mills.

His sets in the best clubs and festivals all over the world have helped crystallize his DJ talents making him one of the most requested DJs on the circuit. Psyk’s singularity and maturity are constantly present in his music, from Distane’s entraining feverish techno to darker and deeper cuts like Lowdown, Eclipse and Arcade (with reached the top stop on the RA Chart list) all the way through to his widely acclaimed debut album Time Foundation, released on Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver imprint. Furthermore Manuel is regularly mentioned by the likes of Oscar Mulero or Robert Hood as one of the most interesting producers in recent years.

Like a conscientious artisan, Psyk approaches his compositions with care, adding somber power and energy through subtle touches, a process which has made him the subject of constant praise from illustrious artistic figures, be it through his offerings under the patronage of emblematic figures like Luke Slater, Len Faki, stronghold labels Figure, Tresor and CLR or even through his own label Non Series under his Maan alter-ego.

Since its inception in 2011, Non Series has released collaborations by strings of prominent artists, from Marcel Dettmann to Steve Rachmad, Chevel, Norman Nodge, Mark Broom and has established itself as a reference in the Techno scene. By developing, refining and purifying his sets, Psyk is focusing all his efforts on the concretization of the ideas that agitate his mind.


Renaat Vandepapeliere is as hungry for new sounds now as he was when he first founded the legendary R&S Records.

Although he has run one of electronic music’s foremost labels for over 37 years, he is still on the voyage of personal discovery and quest for authenticity that has fired the R&S imprint. Now with decades of living his dream, he turns his attention back to the roots of American dance music that inspired the enduring label.

Renaat was one of the first to welcome techno when it came from America to Europe in the 1980s, giving a young Derrick May and Joey Beltram a chance at producing and releasing records in Europe. R&S aimed to preserve the true soul in those recording and not water it down to meet the expectations of European audiences. Soon the label was pushing the innovative new sounds of Aphex Twin, Paula Temple, Jaydee, C.J Bolland, The Source Experience/Robert Leiner, System 7, Dave Angel, Ken Ishii, Model 500/Juan Atkins. In 2006 he began another similarly prolific run into the present day that has seen the likes of James Blake, Delphic, Pariah, Untold, Blawan, Vondelpark, Radioslave score hits on the label, while closing the circle with other artists, such as Atkins and his seminal Model 500 project.

Today another crop of talent is waiting in the wings to break further new ground. Here lies the premise of Renaat R&S Records – In Order To Dance -.
