Month: March 2018



Real Name - Artur & Batish


Country - Ukraine, Kiev


Music Style - Electro / Techno


Why are they important?

Thanks to a string of highly charted releases Artur and Batish have launched themselves out of their hometown of Kiev onto the international circuit with impressive velocity. Redefining a big room tech house sound, whilst retaining their underground ethos has led to considerable interest from the major players at labels like Diynamic and Suara and Artbat stand poised to accelerate their breakout success in the months to come.


Why have we booked them?

Artbat are set to layer CTEMF in a sound which is a stark contrast to the clinical, cold city which come from in the Ukraine. Their driving, melodic and considered techno productions are perfect for a Friday night closer.

It’s been a running trend at CTEMF that the new kids on the block arrive and blow everyone out the water. We’re pretty confident Artbat is no exception.

We’re thrilled to announce that CTEMF is taking over the main stage at Bazique Festival with a host of incredible local and international acts, including Berlin’s own keinemusik darling &ME.


Set to take place only an hour’s drive outside of Cape Town, the brand new Bazique venue is set between a sprawling pine forest and picturesque lake in the Grabouw mountains. The perfect place for DJ-producer and keinemusik co-founder &ME to make his debut in SA.


We’ve curated a powerful line-up for the occasion and can’t wait for André (&ME) to stamp his characteristic Afro-Tech and House sound on the local scene. Productions of his like Avalon, The Rapture, Shadows, Woods, After Dark, and his remix of Vermillion, originally by Damian Lazarus and The Ancient Moons, are all killer examples of what he brings to the stage.


Bazique will be spread across 3 days and 6 stages with 50 local and 7 international acts, thanks to the hard work and collaboration of some of the top outdoor festival organisers in South Africa, including CTEMF, Wolfkop Weekender, Diskotekah, Sexy Groovy Love, Pop Bottles, plus a major UK counterpart.
