The Box is a large, warehouse-style building with exposed steelwork and an old school feel. It that provides a blank canvas for the ON IT team to transform it into an immersive party space with the best visual FX that ADE has ever seen, and with the world-class soundtrack, it is sure to transport you into a different world for one night only.  The complete ON IT experience will be brought to you by some of the label's key artists and associates.

Chicago legend Green Velvet, the man behind plenty of raw house tracks and boss at his own Cajual Records, plus Frechno icon Technasia, whose powerful sound has graced labels like Toolroom Records, Cadenza and Suara. He is set to play a special back-to-back set with Dennis Cruz, a real underground tune making machine who defines the tech house scene with his fresh cuts.
