1+1=3, that's the #TheMachines: a diynamic dj-duo consisting of Pedro Mercado & Kris Adrian.
Kris & Pedro got in contact for the first time in 2016 when DJ/Promotor Kris Adrian booked Pedro Mercado for his Global Underground Sounds party, as part of the Kling Klong Recordings Showcase with Martin Eyerer, at Café d'Anvers in Antwerp, Belgium.
Pedro Mercado is a known international DJ/producer/radiohost/labelmanager from Belgium with releases & remixes on big international labels, and radio shows & gigs worldwide. Also Kris Adrian plays regulary abroad in countries like Holland, Germany, Spain, UK, US, Bahrain and UAE.
Kris & Pedro immediately connected, and between their own gigs in, they did some epic rave weekends together in The Capital Of Techno, Berlin.
In Berlin these professional ravers were first know as The Black Mummy & The Lone Rider, but soon they got another nickname: The Machines, because they went from the one party to another, from club to club, from pre-party to after-party, all weekend long, they were just unstoppable.
Next up they were also starting to get booked to play in Berlin clubs such as Sisyphos, Golden Gate, Burg Schnabel & Crack Bellmer. That's how the #TheMachines were born.
Pedro Mercado plays everything from Deep House to Melodic Techno, Kris Adrian plays everything from Melodic Techno to Deep Techno, so they meet each other in Melodic Techno which is the main style of #TheMachines.
They have each their own unique track selection and the combination just works perfect for the dancefloor.
Pedro & Kris challenge each other constantly during their sets, surprising themselves and the crowd. Next to playing together as Djs they also started to make music together.
As Pedro Mercado & Kris Adrian they released already on Frequenza Black, Conic and Chrom Recordings, the label started up in 2017 by Pedro Mercado together with Mike from Planet Ibiza.
In a very short time Chrom has grown into a very credible & successful quality label with many followers & important support, hosting already Label Showcases all over the world (ADE, Berlin, Belgium, Switzerland, Mexico, Belarus) and #TheMachines are one of the main residents of the Chrom roster.
