The Jury:


Astrum was one of the first Audiotool superstars. It was a pleasure to see him grow from a beginner - The Crazy Druminator - to such a mature and determined artist. Today, he is on tour live under the name of Zonra - he could already convince us of his qualities in this field live at the audiotool.con in Cologne in 2013 - releasing great albums at regular intervals.

hvd started his Audiotool career with very well produced House bangers based on the French scene and over the years has become a guarantor for authentic underground style, which is located somewhere between the classic Detroit and the current LoFi sounds. His basslines, always produced to the point and bursting with originality, are worth special mention.

Frigolito 's creativity and musical knowledge is second to none on Audiotool. Be it his Christmas carol singing synth or his contribution to the Moog contest or his live performance with Theremin at Moogfest in Asheville in 2014, he has always caused amazement and storms of enthusiasm without ever having to withstand the pressure of trends and subculture. He has been studying violin and composition at Malmö Academy of Music for the last 6 years and starts studying composition at master level the coming autumn.

Twinkle, Twinkle - Synth Voice


Uprising 's sound always had that festival touch ... it smelled of pyrotechnics, foam and confetti bombs - no half measures here. His version of EDM Dubstep was always hard but very danceable and, above all, always at the top of the Audiotool charts. Today his music has become a bit quieter, but not less professional.

When Xavi wrote "Please comment, I would love to know ways to improve" under his first, somewhat messy track 8 years ago, nobody could have guessed where the journey would lead. A few years later, with likes approaching 1000, he was for years one of the most successful Audiotool artists. Today he plays at festivals and student parties and releases regularly on various labels.

cripta not only once created the slogan "No Pulve no Party", he has also turned it into a way of life. Right from the start he dropped Techno bombs, which he also presented in sweaty sets live as a guest DJ at all Audiotool parties in Europe. Limiting Cripta to Techno would be a mistake: His excursions into Synthwave and Retro Electropop are legendary, but always show the straightness and pointedness of good Techno tracks. Any way you look at it, an icon of the first hour.
