Miami Sessions with Rod B. proudly presents Filterheadz - M.U.M Episode 200

Rod B. bring you the Miami Sessions @ Miami Underground Movement

Filterheadz are best known for their smash techno hits Sunshine & Yimanya as well as their highly energetic DJ performances.

It all started somewhere in the 80’s when brothers Bert & Maarten Wilmaers picked up their first musical instruments. Bert on guitar & Maarten on drums. Influenced by The Police, U2 & Simple Minds they took their first steps on the way to Rock ‘n Roll stardom.... 

Well not exactly. After a decade of hammering away in rehearsal rooms and local stages their dream to become rockstars took a surprising twist. Almost by accident they discovered the groovy rhythms of US House Music, influenced by Roger Sanchez, Masters At Work & David Morales the boys started experimenting with loops and disco samples. Their very first US style house tracks saw the light.

Armed with those tracks, the boys approached Belgian record company Headroom Music who saw the potential and took them under their wings. After a few releases under several monikers, they decided to go with ‘Filterheadz’, with the idea of releasing some more ‘Filter Disco’ records…things turned out slightly different.

Two things happened almost simultaneously. First there was their remix of Minimalistix 'Struggle for Pleasure' that turned out to be an instant classic in the progressive house scene. Prolific labels like Hooj Choons, Platipus, Bedrock, Yoshitoshi and Renaissance stood in line to call upon their remix skills. 

The second, and most important thing: They discovered Techno.

Together with Belgian DJ Tomaz they embarked on a Techno Journey that would eventually lead them to Carl Cox’ Intec where they released their all time classic “Sunshine”. Two years later they would take their signature sound even further and release “Yimanya”, another big hit.

In the mean time extensive tours took Filterheadz to every corner of the globe and placed them high on the bill of events like I love Techno, Dance Valley & Tomorrowland and headlining clubs like Zouk, Womb, Ministry of Sound, Fabrik (Madrid) and so on. 

Their remix engine kept running full steam: Green Velvet ‘La La Land’, Eddie Amador ‘House Music’, Delirium ‘Silence’, Faithless ‘I want more’ and Eric Prydz ‘Call on me’ just to name a few. Further releases like Cartagena & Endless Summer showcased their unique blend of techno beats and melodies. 

The balance started to shift, less Techno & more melodic. Although tracks like “Day at the beach” & “Everything explained” on Sander Van Doorn’s label proved to be successful, clearly something was missing... 

Looking back at their history and inspired by their heroes Marco Bailey & Carl Cox they decided it was time for a change.

The Phoenix rises from the ashes. 2012 not only marks the 10th anniversary of Sunshine and a release of a smashing remix package on 1605. It also marks the return to techno. With a string of new releases on MB Elektronics, Intec, 1605, Respekt & Toolroom. 

Filterheadz are once again ready to rock dance floors all over the world.

Rod B. bring you the Miami Sessions @ Miami Underground Movement

Always one step ahead of the game, Bart Skils has established himself as one of Holland’s most respected and highly demanded techno dj’s. His dj sets are cheered by techno lovers as extremely forward thinking and musically well constructed. His releases and remixes for Drumcode, 100% Pure, Tronic, Break New Soil, Cocoon and Rejected ar

e internationally rated as some of the most cutting edge dance tracks to come out of Holland in recent years. His reputation for tight productions gave him opportunities to work and remix artists and friends like Joris Voorn, Adam Beyer, Christian Smith, Nicole Moudaber, Kaiserdisco and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. With Anton Pieete he also forms the acclaimed techno alliance District One. As one of the main players on Amsterdam’s renowned scene, their percussive take on techno and house music are well loved by many.

Skils’ long running Voltt nights at Paradiso have proven pivotal in bringing Amsterdam’s New School generation together. During the late nineties Skils’ undivided dedication to techno already landed him a residential spot at the infamous Mazzo venue. This was where he promoted his first techno fuelled nights, consistently staging the most futuristic in four to the floor beats. Many techno pioneers made their first Dutch appearances at these legendary nights and Voltt is still widely regarded as one of the leading events in Amsterdam’s internationally acclaimed club scene. His massive outdoor festival “Voltt Loves Summer” is praised by many in the Dutch scene as an absolute highlight of the year; over 15.000 party people attend this yearly happening on an old shipyard in Amsterdam! 

With his residency at his own events, gigs all over Europe and many releases and remixes to be played out on the dancefloor, Skils’ dj star has been rising steadily and is shining bright. Persistently rocking venues and festival sites, he has further underlined his position as one of the country’s most reliable and authorative dj’s. His long lasting experience as a dj and his ability to move effortlessly from deep house to banging techno make Skils a sure-fire crowdmover at any given party.
