Welcoming back our long time friend and multi talented The Scumfrog, who played some of our earliest OT camps and is now a mainstay at Robot Heart sunrises, Distrikt and has had awesome releases on Knee Deep In Sound, Armada Music, and MUCH more over his extensive career.

Our other special guests is the US debut of Upercent, coming in hot from Spain with recent releases blowing up on Diynamic (Solomun (Official)'s label out of Germany) & Kompakt Records (Germany).

ABOUT:

The Scumfrog:

25 years after his first DJ gig, and 10 years since his first successful album, Jesse Houk aka The Scumfrog continues to do exactly what he feels like doing; recording his most personal album to date “In Case We’re All Still Here”. Going back to his roots of psychedelic and deep influences, mixed with a wink at sci-fi and a deep understanding of what makes a solid underground groove, Jesse teams up with Armada Music for a journey into Deep House and Tech House. Beside his widely acclaimed song with Sting “If I Ever Lose My Faith”, the album features collaborations with Static Revenger, Vince Elliott, Vassy, and Christian Burns, while other tracks on the album contain Jesse’s own signature vocals.

Not particularly inspired by the commercial side effects of the recent EDM explosion, The Scumfrog decided to retreat to the underground in 2011 with the release of “A Place Where We Belong” on his Facebook page; a project that spawned singles on prestigious labels like 1605, Floorplay, Inkfish, and Armada. He restricted his live shows strictly to venues that prioritize music and sound before bottle service and bachelorette parties, further reflecting his strong commitment to underground sounds, and to making a connection with people that share his love and vast knowledge of music.
Prior to his renewed alliance with the underground, The Scumfrog was mostly known for his award winning stripped-down remixes of artists like Missy Elliott, New Order, Kylie Minogue, and Annie Lennox, and his collaborations writing/producing techno oriented works with David Bowie and Cyndi Lauper. And now, with his Sting project "If I Ever Lose My Faith," The Scumfrog strongly displays his deep House roots, while still giving mass appeal to the main vocal mix.

As a DJ, The Scumfrog has toured the world many times over, and since 2009 he hosts a weekly radio show/podcast Glam Scum International, showcasing the side of Electronic Dance music that is not for everyone.

Upercent is a unique and very special artist who can’t go unnoticed! Born and raised in Valencia, he’s one of the most natural talents among electronic music producers in Spain with a strong determination to revolutionize the scene by giving his own input, with such a great attention and dedication to details and elements that creates his musical difference.

Thoughtful and emotional, Upercent's sound is organic and analog with a perfect balance between the two. Thanks to his creativity, perfectionism and constant innovation he usually tells stories throughout his music and videos, everything made by him in order to recreate a particular atmosphere by transferring feelings to his audience.

Although his musical launch was in 2013, his evolution has been unstoppable! Up until today he has released on some of the most known underground dance labels such as Diynamic, Culprit, UponYou, Snatch!, This And That, Moda Black and Sincopat to name a few!

He has also done collaborations with and remixes to/from the likes of Pirupa, Eduardo De La Calle, Pablo Bolivar, Los Suruba, AFFKT, youANDme, Rafael Cerato, Sven Tasnadi, David Keno, M.in and Third Son among others. Moreover he has shared the decks with artists such as Josh Wink, James Zabiela, Martin Buttrich, Noir, Oliver Huntemann,
Raxon, Riva Starr, Mark Henning, Oxia, Shall Ocin, Marco Ressman, The Echonomist and Marcus Worgull to name a few.

Upercent is definitely one to keep an eye on, with the implementation of a live set in progress and more musical/visual projects to showcase!

This is also 'A Match Made in Heaven 10 Year Anniversary special Event!'

As we hope you've heard, Opulent Temple has big-big plans for a camp in 2018. A dream team of OT's most talented crew are coming together to produce one of our most ambitious camps. That effort will be huge, and it will only happen (as always) with the backing of the community. (That's YOU!)

This will be one of many gatherings to manifest the vision, and it's a special one, if we may say so. 10 Years ago a donor stepped forward to help us by matching what we made on a particular party so we'd double our take. For this event only - he's offered to do it again. So when you come out to rock with Infected, always a great idea, you'll doing us double the help!

Did we say Huge?
