Rob Acid, Sontec, Dicabor, Alton Inc, Acid Warrior

Straight out of Cologne in 1993, under the pseudonym Rob Acid, Babicz released his first single Happy Answer on London Records, which unexpectedly became a huge club hit. With the rise of acid house influenced records dominating the charts, Babicz was able to ride high on this new wave of club culture. In addition to becoming an in demand live performer using one of his other names, Acid Warrior, Babicz started to release singles on high profile imprints like Kompakt, Treibstoff and Steve Bug’s Audiomatique, as well as his own label, Junkfood In what Rob appropriately dubs “the rave years” in the mid-nineties, he was already playing all over the world. During this time Babicz teamed up with Mate Galic and psychedelic sonic experiences of every kind followed, which as Rob himself sums up perfectly came as a result of “excessive sound-research and absurd parties… transistor radio and porn films on big screen”. His affiliation with Force Inc a few years later brought a series of more experimental, less dancefloor-orientated works which suggested his theoretical musique concrete roots. By the turn of the new millennium, Babicz was striving for a different sound and thus began a new label, Shortcut. At the same time, he received multiple requests for sound design from hard and software producers, most notably resulting in the presets he produced for Native Instruments. In 2007 Robert released his landmark record, A Cheerful Temper on Systematic Recordings, which expertly moves between electronica, techno, minimal and classic house. Playing ‘live’ has always been a key feature of Babicz’s authentic musicianship; improvising instead of reeling off pre-determined sets has made his celebrated shows unquestionably unique events. He consistently delivers astonishing performances of his own productions built around warm melodies, blissed atmospherics & analogue bass - sometimes jacking, but mostly tripping and always around the foundations of his first love: techno. Consequently, Babicz has more than proven his worth in the world of dance music and his right to the title of pioneer and innovator, whether producing tech house, minimal or acid techno. With the release of Immortal Changes in early 2010, described by DJ Mag as a “marriage of organic groove and glistening electronic melodies” it is clear that Robert Babicz still has much more to give…

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents Miami Sessions with Umek Live@Blau Club Girona Spain - M.U.M Episode 127

Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement

 

DJ UMEK
For a long time, Slovenia is known for its great electronic parties, but as the local scene is of boutique dimensions, everyone, who wishes to take the art of mixing and producing to a professional level, has to go out there and enter the worldwide scene. Umek has done this step as early as in the middle of the 90s and so he became one of the most important techno players of the global techno scene, even before the end of the last millennium. Together with people, who shared the same views, he successfully captured the first era of researching and recreating the rules of the dance music in Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco platforms, which all put the sound of the Slovenian techno on the world map of electronic music.
In the beginning of the year 2007, Umek started a new 1605 Music Therapy - Sixteenofive, with which he marked the beginning of the second era of his music creation and what an era it is. 5 highly popular releases on the 1605 label with lots more planned in the next few months, a huge success of the »Day Of Electronics 09« - the main 1605 event in Krizanke (Ljubljana, Slovenia) for the third year in a row, a popular summer festival »Disconautica« (Koper, Slovenia) featuring 1605 Main Floor for the second year in a row and with over 50.000 attending people. Furthermore the 15 astonishing releases and remixes already released in 2009 are the best proof, that Umek stays focused on his primary goal – to make high quality productions that stand out from the rest and to bring this music closer to people all around the world.
The year 2009 also brought a fresh breeze in Umek’s booking department and so his new booking agency is Bullitt Bookings from the USA, that also takes care of some of the biggest names, like Dubfire, Nic Fanciulli, Shlomi Aber, Davide Squillace and many others.
Last year's releases like Is it / Longer Trail, Destructible Enviroment, S Cream, Designed Persona, You Might Hear Nothing and the latest club hit Work This Data, have caught the attention of Armada, Hell Yeah, Tronic, Dataworx and other biggest labels of the music industry and judging by Umek's tracks »Hablando« and »Slap«, released on his own label 1605, by the enormous amount of upcoming releases and the second (and first on 1605 label) album with his 10 great tracks “Responding To Dynamic” (coming in spring 2010), Umek surely isn’t going to run out of creative fuel for quite some time.

M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Matthew Hoag"- M.U.M- Episode 126

Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement

 

 

 

Matthew Hoag

Being anonymous music aficionado, music professional or a sexy Pacha girl, there are two things you really should know about Matthew Hoag: meeting him in person is always fun. Joining him for the night clubbing is a life changing experience. This vivid, cheerful, friendly bon vivant isn’t just one of those guys who want to know everything about the music as an art and the whole business behind it. He’s foremost a really nice person and his works are excellent reflections of his embrace-the-life globe trotting attitude.

The earliest seed that indicated Matthew’s future career is hidden somewhere on the dance floor was his passion for light shows. He became light-operator for the matinees in one of the local clubs already as a teenager. Few years latter he took a job at the local radio station. That’s where he learned how the radio station works, how the program is being put together, he became skillful technician, and he also listened to a lot of music: “I guess this is the main reason why I can’t be put in the box as an artist. I was exposed to all range of commercial and non commercial music. And it was that period when I grew taste for good alternative music and explored even genres such as jazz and blues.”

Meanwhile his career took a big leap forward as he became “illegal” light operator at the infamous Ambasada Gavioli club. This wasn’t his job. Put more precisely: he wasn’t even allowed to come near the console by the boss. But the resident deejays liked his touch and invited him into the booth whenever possible. “I was hanging around to listen to the sets of Valentino Kanzyani. Ambasada was the playground for the biggest names in the game. And Sven Väth was the one that really stood out of the flock: it was his human energy, power of his music, his ability to control the dance floor what ultimately convinced me to become a deejay.”

Although it wasn’t Sven’s or Valentino’s sound that he wanted to follow. “I’ve started with house, explored the progressive and I guess I could be considered tech-house artist nowadays,” summarizes Matthew who as a very versatile and eclectic artist doesn’t brand himself. He broke trough as a deejay when spotted by Valentino Kanzyani at the party in Croatia: “Valentino is one of the biggest figures in my life. He’s my brother from another mother,” likes to jest Matthew about their friendship. “He invited me to join his office, where I’ve got introduced to every angle of label management and music promotion business.” 

2009 saw Matthew kicking the dance floors around the globe, from Columbia to Turkey,from  Spain to Greece, from Germany To Brazil.

Do you know DRI.K?

 

“Did you hear DRI.K playing? It’s outstanding!” by GUI BORATTO (BR)

“The best female DJ we’ve ever seen playing!” by TICON (SE)

“Without cheap tricks but far from being a sound considered difficult, DRI.K showed an untouchable sound sensibility: technique and very sharp trends. And she has a very chic sound, almost blasé, with so much subtleness. Cheers to DJ DRI.K’s Tech House!” by ALEX PALHANO (BR)  

“Number one female DJ in Brazil.” by CHRIS CHREBET (US)

“DRI.K stands out from the rest both in and out of Brazil, producing really cool and intelligent work. I believe that, if she continues this way, we will soon have a TOP DJ representing our country really well internationally and earning her deserved respect in the Brazilian scene.” by MARCELINHO CIC (BR)

Considered one of the most talent DJs of her generation, DRI.K stands out for uniting beauty and charisma with a desirable technique acquired from DJ Scratch Academy in New York (US).

With only 3 years in the profession and fast moving carrer, DRI.K performed in many different parties and clubs in South America, United States and Europe, sharing the DJ booth with Eric Morillo (US), Paul Oakenfold (UK), Deadmau5 (CA),  David Amo & Julio Navas (ES), John Acquaviva (CA), Ticon (SE), Funkagenda (UK), Tocadisco (DE), Miss Nine (DE), Alex Gaudino (IT), Laidback Luke (PH), Dusty Kid (IT), The Flash Brothers (IL), Tino Morgado (UK), Thomas Penton (EUA), Anneli (SE), Gui Boratto (BR), Marky (BR), among many other great names.

DRI.K was present in the best music events in Rio de Janeiro. Some of these events include OI FASHION ROCKS, CHEMICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL, CREAM BRASIL and RIO MUSIC CONFERENCE. However, she became nationally known by her two live presentations at BIG BROTHER BRASIL (9th and 10th editions), broadcasted by TV Globo and the TV channel Multishow.

 She has toured internationally where she played at the following clubs/events: We Love Brazil Pool Party during Winter Music Conference 2007 at Carlton Hotel, We Love Brazil Party during Winter Music Conference 2008 at Club Jazid and at the Opening Cocktail of UC Music in Miami Beach, also played at Great Scott in Boston/MA, The Liberty Bar (Philadelphia/PA), Guitar Bar (NJ), Mood Lounge(NJ), Chris Michael's Lounge (NJ), Adega Lounge (NJ), The White Room (Buenos Aires/AR), Kalypso (Pag Island/HR), Exit (Vodice/HR), Crossroad (Malinska/HR) and Magnus (Senj/HR).  

On the Internet, her sets played on Warung Waves/BR, Radio Multishow FM/BR, Push Radio/USA and Beatbox FM/BsAs. She has also participated in live broadcasts on Transamérica FM/RJ, Cidade FM/JF and Vitória University/ES. One of her sets, the Minipoptech (July/08), won “LEGGO MY DEMO” contest and was highlighted on the newspaper’s radio “THE MIAMI HERALD”, in Florida/US.  

One of the great female female breakthroughs in the electronic music scene in Rio de Janeiro, DRI.K never fails to surprise with her amazing sets, which include tech house, techno and deep house. Having this DJ in command of the dance floor is synonymous with fun rocked by sexy and compelling grooves.

 From DRI.K, expect the unexpected!
