Freddy K is a techno activist. Since the 90s Alessio Armeni has been tireless campaigning from the dancefloor, defending vinyl, championing young talents and reinforcing the scene from the shadows. One might also know him from his epic 10, 14 and 16 hour-long sets, playing strictly vinyl and not afraid to include Soft Cell, WestBam or Bronski Beat - when the timing is just right.

Vinyl-enthusiast at heart, Dr. Rubinstein, aka Marina Rubinstein, has long stood out in the underground music scene and forged an international following without the press and backing of a label. Since moving to Berlin in 2012 her unique rave-focused style and performance have been marked by infectious energy, impeccable selections spanning multiple genres and decades, and acid basslines. At MELT 2023, both will meet in one spectacular b2b - be sure to stick around till the very end.
