Gaja & Lucijan aka GPNGPN & Loutseau are a couple and duo from Ljubljana, Slovenia now based in Berlin. Gaja, a seasoned actress originally – now graces vocals in FFX, penning lyrics around coming of age in the digital era. Lucijan, an App coder by day – brings a unique and eclectic production style, routed in Electronica but taking influences from across the underground dance spectrum. Their debut EP “Promnite” (2015) recieved love from BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens, Rob Da Bank) & BBC Radio 1xtra (Jamz Supernova’s Top 5 EP’s).
New EP “Vodka Something Gin With Whatever” sees the duo expand their discography. Showing more of what they have to offer. From the infectiously chopped up footwork on “Prog” to the introspective songwriting of BNR & Would I Why, FFX show no boundaries in their expression. Single “Little Boy” shows Gaja flipping an Amy Winehouse one-liner into an infectious chorus.
In 2017 they played Berlin`s infamous Berghain twice and bookings for around Europe have started to come in. Wowing festivals and clubs already, we are excited for 2018!
Star Slinger is a Producer and DJ making music that falls somewhere between Hip Hop, Dance music & Electronic. Sampling is at the core of his style because it involves making connections between genres. On Volume 1 he mixed everything from Hip Hop, 80s New Wave, child-fronted Reggae & southern soul music! Pitchfork have likened him to Dipset producers The Heatmakers, J Dilla & Kanye West. While others know him for his dancier remixes, club sets and edits.
Having left 2016 on the back of We Could Be More (Released by Skrillex OWSLA Imprint), Slinger continues to push the envelope of what can be considered the eclectic side of Electronic music!
