ROBERT BABICZ - ON A MISSION WITH SOUNDS AND EMOTIONS

a.k.a.
Rob Acid / Dicabor / Sontec / Atlon Inc. / Department of Dance / Acid Warrior / Pumpgun Pro / Colone / Origin / Tannenhof / Twirl / Church Window

Robert’s musical output is inspiring and staggering. A true one-man operation, he writes, records and performs solo; commanding an ever-expanding touring schedule, tailoring the music he creates to the cities he visits. But that’s only part of the puzzle, Babicz's art is comprised of more than just his music. He films everything. Using his music to open doors and build relationships with people in only the way music can, he then records his experiences and interaction on film, both still and moving, later editing the images together as a picture track to his audio. Robert creates short films that capture the emotions, colours and feel of his trips, his music and the people he finds who want to be part of that experience. In turn these then also have an effect on his music colouring his emotive, unique take on electronica with a very human feel.

Miami Sessions with Rod B. proudly presents Christian Smith - M.U.M Episode 201

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

Christian Smith has been at the top of his game as a DJ and producer for over a decade, but despite enjoying a global reputation as one of the most evergreen performers in his field, times have never been quite as good as they are right now. Born in Sweden, Christian spent much of his youth and early adult life in Germany and America. This exposure to different cultures gave Christian a broader ou
tlook than most 30-somethings, even for a well-travelled DJ more familiar with Star Alliance lounges than home comforts. This open-minded outlook comes through loud and clear in the music he makes and plays. While his roots lie in techno, Christian has never been a purist; favouring instead to flavour the tough, rhythmical music he loves with heavy doses of funk or intersperse the raw energy of his sets with inspired moments of pure euphoria.

2009 has been quite a ride so far, and the signs are all there that this year will be Christian Smith’s busiest to date. Having recently relocated to Sao Paulo, Brazil from Spain, it would have been easy to lose touch with the scene’s beating pulse in Europe. Not so for the man whose recent production schedule reads like a discography wish list. Christian Smith & John Selway’s “Total Departure” on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label was one of the tunes if 2008. This was followed by three singles for John Digweed’s Bedrock label which were all a massive success in the clubs and retail stores, as were his releases on Dubfire’s Sci+Tec label, Renaissance, and Steve Lawler’s Viva imprint. The Smith & Selway remix of the Kevin Saunderson classic “Rock To The Beat” was another massive success in Ibiza, and there were other superb remixes for Valentino Kanzyani’s Jesus Loves You, Nic Fanciulli’s Saved and Dieb Audio. The end result – over 30,000 downloads on Beatport in 2008.

The second half of 2009 will be dominated by the first in a trilogy of mix compilations for legendary clubbing brand, Renaissance. The release of Christian Smith – Platform in September will put Christian on a footing with other Renaissance acts Sander Kleinenberg, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela and Steve Lawler and provide the continuity for a mammoth 30+ date world tour that will stop off at parties across Europe, Asia, Australia, North and South America over the coming months. As a DJ, Christian plays everything between house and techno. Never one for a purist approach, he simply believes that people go out to party. The secret is in the energy that he creates, as witnessed in 2008 at Wire Festival, Tokyo; Brazil’s Skol Beats Festival; Awakenings Festival, Amsterdam (featuring a Smith & Selway live show), Space, Ibiza (with Carl Cox), Ministry Of Sound, London (with Pete Tong); and Fabric’s new uber-cool, Matter alongside John Digweed and James Zabiela.

Honoured as Carl Cox’s “Hero of 2008” and with the success of his productions breeding a renewed energy for studio time, the natural next step was for Christian to re-launch his Tronic label. Kicking off in January with a re-release of the Smith & Selway’s classic “Move!” including chart topping remix from Steve Angello, the label has progressed at a pace to place Christian back at the centre of underground music. Featuring tracks from Umek, Mark Broom, Stryke, Fergie and Psycatron, Tronic has resurfaced with a bang and looks set to track Christian’s personal upward trajectory. Look out for future singles from cutting edge producers including Steve Mac, Ramon Tapia, Jim Rivers and Anton Pieete. With massive crossover support for his music from DJ's across the house and techno spectrum the future looks very certain for Christian Smith. Proof if it was needed that it is possible to reinvent your sound and maintain a position at the very top within the vanguard of electronic music.

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.

After 6 successful years he left Germany and went back to Ljubljana/Slovenia to open a new Club called KRA KRA for students. And in 2002 with the opening of his second Club SING SING he finally discovered he's love for House Music.

One year later he started again to organize After Party's and introduced himself to a larger audience side by side together with UMEK and other important DJ's in Slovenia. The „King of Afterhour“ was born!

Miami Sessions presents Behind the Iron Curtain with Umek-M.U.M Episode 162

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.

Miami Sessions with DJ Yousef - M.U.M. Episode 153

Miami Sessions with DJ Yousef - M.U.M. Episode 153 - Miami Underground Movement

The new decade sees Yousef consolidating his status as an international DJ, Producer, Club Promoter and Music aficionado with ever greater impact. Last year saw him achieve a first, the release of his debut artist album - A Collection of Scars & Situations’ finally laying down on wax a watermark of his effervescent personality. It showcased the different dynamics to his sound as a performer - heavy support from the usual rag tag ensemble of dance music greats; Sasha, Danny Tengalia, Nic Fanciulli, Carl Cox, Steve Lawler, Radio Slave and Nick Curly among them. 

‘A Collection of Scars & Situations’ was more than just your typical DJ led collection of bangers. They are catered for of course, most resplendently by the pulsating tech house monster ‘Legacy’ (bolstered by a superb archaic vocal from Derrick Carter) and the Beyer - esque ‘Equilibrium’. But it’s the haunting electronica of ‘Birthday Thoughts’ and ‘A Moment of Clarity’ that gave the album its gritty edge, two bleak almost dystopian efforts which channel the darker undercurrents of electronic music perfectly, DJs, clubbers and the Music media were universal in the praise. 

“Legacy” was picked up for global single release by Renaissance. It garnered plays all over specialist dance radio worldwide (most notably John Digweed, Carl Cox and BBC Radio One’s Pete Tong), as well the coveted DMC single of the week; it was dubbed “one of the stand out tracks of 2009”. When Yousef was asked to contribute an essential mix from the world renowned Creamfields, he set about remaking the track into the ‘Terrace Edit’, taking the track into a newer and fresher direction (two further ep’s are set to drop for renaissance in 2010). 

It continued the mutual love affair between Yousef and Germany, the hub of worldwide electronic music. He signed two new EP’s to Mannheim’s premier league label Plastic City, and after season long support from Sven Vath, “Come home” was released on the world’s most followed electronic music brand Cocoon. It blew up, cutting across the spectrum of house and techno, making ‘Essential new tune’ on Pete Tong’s Radio One show, with consistent support from John Digweed, Laurent Garnier and of course Vath himself. A certain dj names Sasha fell in love with the composition so much he asjked to remix it, which he has in fine style (out on cocoon in mid 2010). Yousef was then signed to Berlins’ leading DJ agency WILDE for his bookings in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, while he remains in the hands of Safehouse management for the rest of the world, also home to Carl Cox. 

The international love has never been stronger for Yousef. The first international DJ to play the troubled nation of Syria. Ibiza, with its arcane hedonism and wild party ethos has always served as an adequate stomping ground for his cross genre grooves. And of course he’s back there this year... with a vengeance! South America has also shown a stronger allure for Yousef, with further ground being broken in Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil increasing his continental lustre. A recent 6 date tour on Indonesia showed how far yousefs reach is getting. Closer to home, he clocked up his first London Residency by inking a monthly deal at Matter, the brainchild of Fabric impresario Keith Reilly. Matter NYE saw another iconic Yousef DJ set, taking over from Vath at 2am for the inaugural Cocoon party and delivering a three hour onslaught of fierce and brutal house and techno to a 3500 capacity club. 

In 2009 yousef remixed Dj Sneak, Fergie and Tobii to devastating effect. 2010 has already seen an earth-shattering remix of Moby’s ‘Wait for me’ completed, plus his touch gifted to Gilles Peterson’s Havana Band project and new kid “Teva” with yousef’s floor devastating circus rework of “you cant teach this”. He remixed two UK legends (X-Press 2’s ‘Say What’ and Fatboy Slim’s ‘Local Town’, the latter featuring rasp voiced rudeboy Jamie T), whilst Nic Fanciulli and his Saved Imprint continue to show their love, with the aforementioned album’s ‘I Suggest’ out now with the superb ‘Firecracker’ on the flip one of two 2010 ep’s for nic’s imprint. The other “my explanation / dis information” already championed by tong on his rather well known radio weekly as well as support from underground house dons Rebbot and Nick Curly among many others. Further Eps for renaissance and debuts on carl cox’s Intec and seminal (vath started) Harthouse records both follow this year… Of course with a follow up on cocoon too… 

Yousef’s own Circus Recordings also notched up a year of releases since launching in 2008, churning out eight Yousef singles which have illustrated the madness and hedonism of the club he has created. 

Yousefs monthly event celebrated seven years at the apex of Liverpool’s club scene in September last year and he is still pulling line-ups together that makes the accountants balk and the clubbers froth at the mouth. House music at its kaleidoscopic best, heavyweight names such as Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Loco Dice, Dubfire, and Eric Prydz have faced off with the of the young upstarts of the underground like; Jamie Jones, Tim Green, Sebo K and Davide Squillace have been amongst others for debut Liverpool shows.

Oh and they got their thug on with Cocoon, bringing Vath and his imperial hedonism to Liverpool for the first time ever in a scintillating party that peaked on every sensory element. There’s little the club night hasn’t done or booked, and with this year already seeing return slots for John Digweed and Derrick Carter, plus debuts for Heidi, Guy Gerber and the irrepressible groove icon Ricardo Vilalobos, there’s seems little left for them to prove. So, just when things couldn’t peak any further for circus Radio One were looking for a club to host the 500th essential mix party. They considered every major club worldwide, circus was (in the words of radio one) the only choice…. Yousef and his long lasting partner Richard went to work, pulling in Richie Hawtin, Sasha, Aeroplane, of course Pete Tong and yousef himself. A 4 hour live global broadcast from circus in its original 1100 capacity club followed. Circus’ finest hour…? Maybe, we’ve thought that before. 

It’s this process of constant evolution rather than reinvention which has characterised Yousef’s career, and kept him at the forefront of promoters’ thoughts across the globe. And there’s the small matter of him running the London marathon, raising cash for CALM and showcasing his serious edge to the party reputation he’s always encased. Record Label Owner and Internationally renowned club promoter, it’s a far cry from the excess which defined wilder youth, confirming his professionalism and dedication to the acid house dream. 

Whether criss-crossing the globe with his arsenal of varied sounds or impregnating his own individual aural histrionics on wax, Yousef is stamping his identity on dance music and leaving a lasting impression. There’s few who come close in terms of dedication or in the variance of approach, Yousef hits each and every base with alarming regularity. And the best part yet? The journey has only just begun... it’s now a big cliché but, undeniably, but, 2010 really is Yousef’s year.

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents Miami Sessions with Umek Live@ Space Carl Cox , Ibiza Part 2 - M.U.M Episode 149

 

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:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with F.Sonik & Andrew Technique-M.U.M Episode 145

 

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

 



F.SONIK   The name of F.Sonik continuously pops up on the wish lists of electronic music aficionados in the region. Launching career with the Ghettotek live-act, later joining SDJF initiative and Flow Management, he already established himself as an unique deejay who is not afraid of such challenges as combining Slovenia's landmark techno heritage with some progressive spices. He already transferred some of this who-dares-wins spirit in his own productions, Something New (ft. Tomy DeClerque) being the most successful so far. This track, which immediately gained support of Umek and was already played on BBC Radio 1, predicts the series of fresh releases in 2008. So you better watch out for this guy! Aleš Furlan alias F.Sonik became involved in electronic dance culture on account of one very innocent occurrence in his youth. And it’s a sole fault of his brother that he ended taming the decks, mixers and effects night after night. “It all started when he brought home some studio mixer and Akai sampler,” remembers F.Sonik “Just a few days later I knew I wanted to produce electronic and become a deejay and I was hooked ever since. I started gathering information about the scene, artists, clubs, music and the whole electronic movement. Living on the Slovenian Riviera it was natural to be influenced by Ambasada Gavioli club as I started attending Valentino Kanzyani’s matinees and performances of leading electronic artists on the regular basis.” It was his friend Alessio who helped him with the first steps: "He was caught by this bug well before me, so he already learned to mix and could thought me a thing or two. I still remember how I use to hang out at his parents house everyday struggling to beat-match the records. And after I started performing he even lent me his records." Shortly after that they teamed up for the live performances. "We've named ourselves Ghettotek. Alessio was mixing the records and I was in charge of putting in some effects. This way I got to perform in most of the hip Slovenian clubs even before my solo career really took off."

Thriving on a strong and globally accomplished techno heritage Slovenian electronic scene is still heavily directed by techno. But being influenced by the Global Underground music philosophy F.Sonik dared to go where only a few artists in the region dared before him – he decided he will combine the techno heritage with melodic progressive sounds: "Even Umek was there somewhere, but as he was pure techno deejay back then and I was more into progressive stuff, it were the likes of Sasha, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler that have inspired me the most," admits the young artist.

F.Sonik successfully transferred his unique vision of dance music, built on techno and blended with some emotionally rich proggy landscapes, into his own tunes. As a producer he gained the most attention with the track titled Something New, which he produced in collaboration with his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. “We’ve connected really good in the studio, so it was a really good feeling when Umek supported our first track including it in his Essential Mix even before it was officially released. That really inspired us and we already work on a bunch of new tracks,” announces F.Sonik...F.SONIK

ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents Miami Sessions with Umek Live@ Space Carl Cox opening, Ibiza-M.U.M Episode 138

 

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:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Dj Lucca-M.U.M Episode 137

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



Relating to official previews 2009 is the year to become a very difficult one. Recession in europe? A world crisis in economy? Nobody really knows how to call it correctly like it will be. But one thing is for sure. Though people may expect the worst Lucie Kvasnicov・ better known as Lucca by her fans, will expect a highlight in her career.

This tiny and beautiful woman from the Czech republic has played and placed herself into the hearts of her fans throughout the last decade and received much respect from male collegues like Chris Liebing or even Carl Cox who still is one of her favourite turntablist in techno business. All of them estimate Lucca a lot and cherish her style and skills and give her the references a worldwide top-dj does need to have.

Lucca's approach towards the perfect sound has always been accompanied by authenticity and devotion. Firstly captured by the house sound by dj sneak Lucca afterwards seduced herself to the techno vibes from napoli. In this epoque Lucca started to be part in every line up of every essential event concerning this style and was given her own festival organised by her former agency Mersey. As a conclusion she performed at "Live @ Hradhouse 2005" a unique concert which was also released on dvd showing this wonderful location placed in the castle of Boskovica and Lucca as the headliner. But she did not stop changing and created her own sound - the Sound Of Acapulco.

More than five years ago in 2003 it was time for Lucca to launch her own label named Acapulco Records. This move has been considered one of the most important actions for the techno scene among the czech republic which was still developing at this point of time. Releases of Acapulco became the synonym for progressing czech techno and were mentioned in many playlists and dj charts. The relaunch of her label now called Sound Of Acapulco could not knock down her acceptance and did show her skills concerning musical visionary even in a brighter light.

Currently this bright light is being transmitted by her debut album "Reformation" which mirrors Lucca's personal trip through life. It is purely a big exhibition of her personal taste of music and a common production with the german producer Tobias Fiedler. As a special appearance even the famous czech musician Michal Pavlicek provides his guitar riffs on her longplayer. "Reformation" does not only reflect her current life concerning music. "Reformation does sound a little bit like revolution but it is not. Me for myself it sounds slightly to aggressive", Lucca claims in an interview. Moreover her album has been built around the experiences she faced the recent years while travelling and now is the djane's v-card. "Reformation" not just includes her former hit single "Body Dance" it is also packed with twelve new stunning tracks e.g. "Quantum" her personal favourits „Hundertwasser“, „Teleport“ und „Noise Town“ as she says. But Lucca would not be satisfied with her engagement for music if she would not plan to start a new longplayer production starting within the next year. This woman is simply restless.

Meanwhile Lucca is a resident guest in music magazins and an appreciated partner concerning endorsement deals. She recently has been the face of well known manufacturer American Audio and cover act of Raveline Germany's leading magazin for electronic music. She also did a highly acclaimed special mix for this particular issue which was downloaded many many times and shows her well timed presence and knowledge of music if needed. For this reason she has been elected for the forth time in the row "DJ Of The Year" in the Czech Dance Music Awards and still does host her own radio show on Paul van Dyk's Vonyc Radio since may 2008. One of her career dream was fulfilled this year, as Carl Cox invited her to play with him in Space, Ibiza on 11th of August.

M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Matthew Hoag"- M.U.M- Episode 139

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.

F.SONIK   The name of F.Sonik continuously pops up on the wish lists of electronic music aficionados in the region. Launching career with the Ghettotek live-act, later joining SDJF initiative and Flow Management, he already established himself as an unique deejay who is not afraid of such challenges as combining Slovenia's landmark techno heritage with some progressive spices. He already transferred some of this who-dares-wins spirit in his own productions, Something New (ft. Tomy DeClerque) being the most successful so far. This track, which immediately gained support of Umek and was already played on BBC Radio 1, predicts the series of fresh releases in 2008. So you better watch out for this guy! Aleš Furlan alias F.Sonik became involved in electronic dance culture on account of one very innocent occurrence in his youth. And it’s a sole fault of his brother that he ended taming the decks, mixers and effects night after night. “It all started when he brought home some studio mixer and Akai sampler,” remembers F.Sonik “Just a few days later I knew I wanted to produce electronic and become a deejay and I was hooked ever since. I started gathering information about the scene, artists, clubs, music and the whole electronic movement. Living on the Slovenian Riviera it was natural to be influenced by Ambasada Gavioli club as I started attending Valentino Kanzyani’s matinees and performances of leading electronic artists on the regular basis.” It was his friend Alessio who helped him with the first steps: "He was caught by this bug well before me, so he already learned to mix and could thought me a thing or two. I still remember how I use to hang out at his parents house everyday struggling to beat-match the records. And after I started performing he even lent me his records." Shortly after that they teamed up for the live performances. "We've named ourselves Ghettotek. Alessio was mixing the records and I was in charge of putting in some effects. This way I got to perform in most of the hip Slovenian clubs even before my solo career really took off."

Thriving on a strong and globally accomplished techno heritage Slovenian electronic scene is still heavily directed by techno. But being influenced by the Global Underground music philosophy F.Sonik dared to go where only a few artists in the region dared before him – he decided he will combine the techno heritage with melodic progressive sounds: "Even Umek was there somewhere, but as he was pure techno deejay back then and I was more into progressive stuff, it were the likes of Sasha, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler that have inspired me the most," admits the young artist.

F.Sonik successfully transferred his unique vision of dance music, built on techno and blended with some emotionally rich proggy landscapes, into his own tunes. As a producer he gained the most attention with the track titled Something New, which he produced in collaboration with his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. “We’ve connected really good in the studio, so it was a really good feeling when Umek supported our first track including it in his Essential Mix even before it was officially released. That really inspired us and we already work on a bunch of new tracks,” announces F.Sonik...F.SONIK

ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

/// berlin berlin ///

berlin – i grew up feeling surrounded by the wall. i lived on the small island of west berlin. border controls on sunday excursions, the rummaging through bags, the military. it was scary.
but the quote “all quiet on the western front” still didn’t really apply, as lots of things were happening that wouldn’t have been possible anywhere else. the island of west berlin was a destination for creative minds in search of alternatives. music was and still is my outlet. alongside tinkling on the electric organ, teaching myself how to read notes and my jukebox with a collection of singles in my room, my ears were first intrigued by the revolution of neue deutsche welle. it was fantastic! for the first time people were singing in the language you could hear out on the street: ideal, grauzone, nina hagen – pop meets punk. things happened so fast. minimal sounds made from machines entered the charts. for me it was kraftwerk’s “model” that changed everything. i discovered that pop also worked without any frills. my side of berlin provided a home for the curious, those who were going against the flow.

however, it was only when the wall came down that berlin became berlin again – the city that lets me breathe. after spending a whole year in london i realized that despite the acid jazzhouse euphoria there, only one place felt like home – berlin, the city of possibilities. being able to breathe, to drive and walk wherever and with whoever i wanted. and no more borders. i was immediately fascinated by east berlin, by this atmosphere of curiosity and get-up-and-go. there was room for experiments. electronic music united east and west.

i started to focus on music and art. at first that meant playing the saxophone, learning about fashion, hanging out in rehearsal rooms and taking classes in acrobatics. to finance it all, i worked behind the bar in the fischlabor, which happened to be the meeting point of the up-and-coming music network. i mixed my first tapes and suddenly became part of the emerging berlin techno scene, which started out in empty industrial buildings, houses and cellars. ellen became ellen allien.

courage
berlin nightlife. i had my own radio show on kiss fm, worked at the delirium record store and finally founded my first label braincandy. it felt as if music had swallowed me whole. with braincandy i made a serious attempt at releasing the kind of abstract techno i liked best. i’d had enough of compromising. some of it was just the courage to pave my own way.
the closing down of the first big berlin techno clubs was a setback for the scene, though i interpreted it as a sign to get something new going in the midst of disorientation. the party series bpitch control was a good start. i wanted to hang on to the music, to materialize it, so i founded bpitch control records.
the parties were no longer just memories, now people could take them home, too. the label was mainly an organ for me and other people who i found talented and worth supporting. to me, bpitch control is glamour, community and exchange platform all at the same time.

productive
as a dj i have always tried to connect genres, styles and audiences. i want to feed people new music and capture their interest. i want to fill the room with sound. and i have always been searching for an acceptance of what exists. we all live in the here and now!
and it was that common thread that i wanted to share with the audience. when i dj, body and music become one, they become brainy. to me, music was always the only way to soar through epic parallel worlds, to relax, to experience excess, to find myself.
music is both my motor and my outlet.
as a producer, music is a playback of my emotions and moods. i tease them out of me with alternating technical devices. music becomes a chronicle, each album is a work from a period of my life, which grounds me after the stress of dj-jetting. albums are like diaries. with my first album “stadtkind” i wanted to express my close relationship with the city i live in. it was like an explosion. “stadtkind” is my homage to berlin. the testing, work and experimentation with the structures and the sound spectrum of electronic music then became more and more crucial for me. i used my various compilations and remixes to beam myself into the musical cosmos. with my next album “berlinette” i processed what i had experienced after the release of “stadtkind”. it was like a flash of lightning, i was everywhere and everyone around me was euphoric and supportive. “berlinette” illustrates all that and it is also my very personal discourse on what is possible in the world of pop music and abstract sounds. then i released my third album “thrills”. it moves back and forth between constant excitement and playing the arp 2600 and other analogue instruments.

in 2006 apparat and i decided to do an album together. we went into appart's studio and had a great time - looking over the roof tops of berlin in winter, playing around on different instruments and synths, trying things out. "orchestra of bubbles" is a really nice electronica album with parts both of my and apparat's style. during summer 2006 we performed our live sets all over the world, played big festivals and were sweating like crazy each time. it was a challenge and an inspiration for both of us.

when i was asked to represent berlin for a dvd for time out i was happy to accept. it's a really cool thing for people who don't know this great city and want to know about it. i show my favorite places and also did a mix that goes along on cd.
fabric has always been my favorite club and i was proud to be asked to do an exclusive mix for them, which has been released in may 2007. beside my different remix projects (f.i. thom yorke, beck, troy pierce, ect.) that was something i really enjoyed doing in my studio.

whenever i have time i do my own fashion. in summer 2007 i already launched my third collection. i like doing fashion design - i like to draw and the choose fabrics. i only do very few pieces, it's all very exclusive and it's more my hobby than a business. music is still my main interest - my love and my life. and it's interesting to see how different equipment and software changes the styles of music all the time.

changing studio equipment keeps the productions flowing. techno is still what i’m about. it’s minimal, reduced, deep and rough at the same time. i would say that techno and i have developed together.

in may 2008 my fourth solo album “sool“ has been released. one single (sprung/its) and other three
remix releases (out, elphine, ondu caress) of “sool“ follow the same year. shortly after my new ellen allien fashion tshirt line **plus** comes out. in september 2008 the jetlag tour together with modeselektor starts.

the year 2009 begins with a very special anniversary: 10 years of bpitch control, 10 years of music, working together, following the idea of acting as a collective, fostering of exchange and
communication, entering new territories and having fun while doing so. actually, this year bpitch control signed many new artists. indeed, i can say that i´m very proud to work together with
so many talented artists.

in january my new ellen allien fashion spring/summer collection 09 came out. this time i decided to launch two different lines: the everyday quartett line and the rather elegant but nevertheless sexy and cheeky mainline. then i started my worldwide dj-tour which brought me once again to japan, the states, mexico
and many other thrilling destinations.

the new ellen allien fashion autumn winter collection 09 came out june. once again i realized two different lines: a jersey line called “city lights“ that consist of dresses and shirts for women and men, rarefied with hand painted accents of neon brushes. the nomadic world i live in, inspired me to think of us all as city indians. the jeans line uses vintage denim to create something new out of the old.
with individual items i want to shape the women´s perspectives. i think we really need to see the world as more playful, more connnected, but nevertheless extending into new horizons.

my new single “lover“ got released at the beginning of september and lots of "happy birthday bpitch control"-parties have delighted us during the whole year. we rocked berghain club in berlin, the melt! festival, the sonar festival, watt club in rotterdam and many other outstanding locations. together with the graphics team “pfadfinderei“ we have been working on new ellen allien visual which have been tested in a couple of clubs and that are developing into something definite step by step.in september my single "lover" (bpc199) came out and i made a remix of uffie/feadz's track “pop the clock“ (edbanger records).
in november i made an ellen allien south america tour with gigs in montevideo, buenos aires, rio de janeiro, belo horizonte, sao paolo, medellin and bogota.

2010: a new decade for a new ellen allien solo album. i took a brief break from playing in clubs in order to concentrate on the production of my fifth solo album together with tobias freund. in january the ellen allien fashion spring/summer 2010 collection called "nightflowers" came out and i made a mix cd for the watergate club (ellen allien mix cd /watergate vol5). in february my 12" "pump" (bpc209) and "the best of bpitch control" for the japanese concept store beams came out. in march i toured through japan (tokyo, osaka, nagoya, okinawa) once again to celebrate bpitch control's tenth annyversary. i continued playing in clubs and festival throughout europe.
in may my new album dust (bpc220) came out. ince again i hav ebeen touring worldwide (usa, singapore, malaysia, australia and europe). along with dust other two 12" were released: flashy flashy (bpc216) with remixes by nicolas jaar and alexi delano and our utopie (bpc220) including the bonus track "searching".


sensual
in my work, graphics, music, artwork, visuals and fashion merge.

body
dance, space and lust for life overspill. i search for the fulfilling dance. body, belly and brain start to swing and uplift me/us. music is the drug – nothing else!

travel
travelling with my record case, living out of the suitcase. the hotel is my home. experiencing new worlds and cultures and accepting them; understanding, how things work in other places. sharing views and politics. a club unites people without words. it’s the music that speaks.
recognizing the beauty of the world and absorbing the otherness. home is far away and not important. it’s the unknown that attracts my attention, and i want to know it!

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents Miami Sessions with Umek Live@Club Lehmann Stuttgart Germany - M.U.M Episode 136

 

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  Presents Miami Sessions with King Unique - M.U.M Episode 133
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement

King Unique is Matt Thomas, an all round studio junkie and dj with a taste for tripped-out cosmic techno and rough-edged underground house; in a career spanning nearly a decade KU’s distinctive sound has won an enviable global following. A ceaseless schedule of dj sets and festival gigs backed up by relentless studio sessions resulting in scores of records, remixes and radio broadcasts has made the KU sound an instantly recognizable part of the music-life of millions of the world’s clubbers - and a fixture in the vinyl crates, cd wallets and laptops of the world’s most influential djs. Consistently appealing across genres the tracks have been played by everyone from Sasha to Soulwax, Richie Hawtin to Tiesto, and have turned up everywhere from Hollywood soundtracks to mobile ringtones - not to mention countless compilations and mix albums.

Formed in 2001 by Matt Thomas & Matthew Roberts, King Unique hit the floor running, claiming the title of Undisputed Remix Champs by scoring five Essential New Tunes in five months on Pete Tong's "Essential Selection" Radio 1 show. A US Billboard Dance Chart number 1 for the remix of Dirty Vegas’ “Walk Into The Sun”, plus two more solo Essential New Tunes for Matt under his Watkins and Mainframe alter-egos saw KU firmly cement their place amongst the ranks of first-call remixers. The King Unique production touch has been in constant demand since, appearing on more than fifty remixes and yielding some of the biggest dance floor bombs known to man - Underworld's "Two Months Off", The Killers "Somebody Told Me", Planet Funk’s “The Switch”, The Teamsters "Feels Like Love", and Chable and Bonicci’s "Ride".
2006 saw the end of the original duo’s studio partnership, as Matt Thomas took on the King Unique role as a solo artist. The two years since have seen the KU sound taken to new heights with a mixture of euphoric acidic melodies, dark brooding techno vibes and old skool beats. Remixes of Tracey Thorn’s “Grand Canyon”, Gabriel & Dresden’s “Tracking Treasure Down” and an ’08 remix of KU’s own “Sugarhigh” have reaffirmed his status as one of the most versatile and consistent producers of the last ten years.
Most recently Matt has produced a stunning reworking of “Heaven” for James Lavelle’s UNKLE project, as well as remixes for Junkie XL, Paolo Mojo and Miami art-punk fashionistas Organicarma.

The renowned King Unique dj set has made KU a regular addition to the line up of some of the world's most respected clubs and biggest festivals, playing everywhere from ultra-hip blacked-out sweat boxes in Tokyo to euphoric crowds of thousands on the tropical beaches of Madeira. Regular gigs for super-brands such as Renaissance and Ministry Of Sound coupled with an increasingly hectic international schedule has seen Matt racking up enough air-miles for a free trip to the moon, with gigs in Sydney, Osaka, Barcelona, Shanghai, Lima, Bucharest, Auckland, Bogota, Singapore, Chelyabinsk, Malta, Vilnius - just to name a handful from recent months. Since the very first shows Matt has pushed at the cutting edge of the technology revolution that's swept through club culture, taking laptops, new gadgets and studio gear into the booth. 2009 sees the addition of the near mythic Monome controller to the sonic armoury - part track-mangling Ableton controller and part psychedelic light show, lovingly hand built by techno-hippies in the Catskill Mountains.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Alexander Madness-M.U.M Episode 131
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




Alexander Madness

“Music is movement, variation, imagination
and eternity. In other words:
the future of sustainable energy. As a
DJ I try to transfer and receive that
form of energy from and to the people
on the dance floor - mixing minimal
techno tracks with electro house floor
fillers. For the rough cases I always
carry progressive and electro tracks
in my DJ bag.”

Alexander Madness (AM) discovered daylight in 1978 in Koper, Slovenia. Already his mother knew that music is going to be one of his main interests: As a kid he always liked to stand in front of roaring speakers. Before diving into the universe of electronic music,
Alexander was listening to rock, pop and all the other genres that are usually popular among the youth.

”I first got to feel the magic of electronic music in 1996, when sounds of fast hardcore hit my ears. Because that kind of music was rare at that time, I soon switched to slower rhythms of chemical progressive.”

In 1998, AM first stepped behind the decks and immediately felt the connection – and it’s still lasting. Like any other DJ he realized that the beginnings were not easy. His first gigs were played at local bars and private parties, but his technique evolved within years, as did his passion for the music.

In the past years he was switching from one e-genre to another until he really got into techno, which he still prefers. He plays mostly minimal/techno and electro/house but in his DJ case you’ll also find progressive and electro tracks.

He has been playing in all the major and recognized clubs, such as Ambasada Gavioli, Lipa, SubSub, K4,The Temple, Fun Academy, Oxygen, Netopir, The Club, The Cube, Playtime, Forest, Tivoli, Arcade, Culture club and many more. He participated also on Final Flash, Fetique-Boutique, Born to be Wild, The way of Freedom and Sound Of Summer events.

Throughout his eight year run and after AM’s guest appearances in numerous venues in Slovenia, Croatia and Italy, AM has also shared the spotlight with some of the industries best DJ’s. Some of his collaborations include artists such as Valentino Kanzyani, Andy Moor, The Filterheadz, Richard Bartz, Len Faki, Bryan Cox, Oxia, Joris Voorn, Matthew Dekay, Seamus Haji, Danilo Vigorito, dA frESh, Mashtronic, Electrixx, Ade Fanton, Virgin Helena, Paul Hazendonk, Petar Dundov, Jamie Bissmire and many more.

M.U.M Presents Miami Sessions Darren Emerson- M.U.M Episode 129 Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


Darren Emerson is one of the most influential figures in dance music, his 17 year career has seen him work with everyone from Depeche Mode to Jamie Cullum with numerous hit albums and singles as well as music synched to computer games and films.

Arguably best known for his work with Rick Smith and Karl Hyde, Darren joined Underworld when he was 18 years old, the band released three albums: ‘Dubnobasswithmyheadman', ‘Second Toughest in the Infants' and ‘Beaucoup Fish'. Underworld have sold over a million albums worldwide, featured two tracks on Danny Boyles Oscar nominated classic "Trainspotting" and are renowned for their stunning and unpredictable live shows. The hits include Cowgirl, Rez, Dark and Long and Born Slippy – all classics.

2000 saw Emerson leave Underworld and go solo. Although the band had been his passion for 10 years, it was time to branch out; concentrate on his record label and work with different producers. The first collaboration saw Emerson and DJ cohort Sasha produce the Ibiza classic ‘Scorchio'. Two Global Underground compilations soon followed; ‘Uruguay' and ‘Singapore' and the hugely succesfull Underwater Episodes. All proving that Emerson was back to doing what he does best; showcasing everything from deeper house through to jackin' techno cuts. Darren has also remixed tracks for everyone from The Prodigy to Everything But The Girl and Gus Gus.

In 1994 Darren Emerson started Underwater records, initially to release music for his friends, the label has seen releases from Steve Mac, Paul Woolford, Josh Wink, Gus Gus, Joel Mull, Smith & Selway, Paul Jackson, and Tim Deluxe – whose ‘Sirens/ We All Love Sax' and ‘It Just Won't Do' helped put Underwater firmly on the map. In 2003 Underwater was voted label of the year by DJ Mag and continues to go from strength to strength releasing albums and singles from its ever growing and increasingly varied roster of artists.

Darren recently released his third Global Underground compilation 'Bogota'. His debut solo artist album is now finished and will be backed with a plethora of club tracks meanwhile he continues his relentless globe trotting DJ schedule.

M.U.M Presents Miami Sessions with Robert Babicz- M.U.M Episode 128

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

 

 

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 & 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.

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents Miami Sessions with Umek Live@ Cembrankeller Linz Austria - M.U.M Episode 123

 

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:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with F.Sonik-M.U.M Episode 122

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

F.SONIK   The name of F.Sonik continuously pops up on the wish lists of electronic music aficionados in the region. Launching career with the Ghettotek live-act, later joining SDJF initiative and Flow Management, he already established himself as an unique deejay who is not afraid of such challenges as combining Slovenia's landmark techno heritage with some progressive spices. He already transferred some of this who-dares-wins spirit in his own productions, Something New (ft. Tomy DeClerque) being the most successful so far. This track, which immediately gained support of Umek and was already played on BBC Radio 1, predicts the series of fresh releases in 2008. So you better watch out for this guy! Aleš Furlan alias F.Sonik became involved in electronic dance culture on account of one very innocent occurrence in his youth. And it’s a sole fault of his brother that he ended taming the decks, mixers and effects night after night. “It all started when he brought home some studio mixer and Akai sampler,” remembers F.Sonik “Just a few days later I knew I wanted to produce electronic and become a deejay and I was hooked ever since. I started gathering information about the scene, artists, clubs, music and the whole electronic movement. Living on the Slovenian Riviera it was natural to be influenced by Ambasada Gavioli club as I started attending Valentino Kanzyani’s matinees and performances of leading electronic artists on the regular basis.” It was his friend Alessio who helped him with the first steps: "He was caught by this bug well before me, so he already learned to mix and could thought me a thing or two. I still remember how I use to hang out at his parents house everyday struggling to beat-match the records. And after I started performing he even lent me his records." Shortly after that they teamed up for the live performances. "We've named ourselves Ghettotek. Alessio was mixing the records and I was in charge of putting in some effects. This way I got to perform in most of the hip Slovenian clubs even before my solo career really took off."

Thriving on a strong and globally accomplished techno heritage Slovenian electronic scene is still heavily directed by techno. But being influenced by the Global Underground music philosophy F.Sonik dared to go where only a few artists in the region dared before him – he decided he will combine the techno heritage with melodic progressive sounds: "Even Umek was there somewhere, but as he was pure techno deejay back then and I was more into progressive stuff, it were the likes of Sasha, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler that have inspired me the most," admits the young artist.

F.Sonik successfully transferred his unique vision of dance music, built on techno and blended with some emotionally rich proggy landscapes, into his own tunes. As a producer he gained the most attention with the track titled Something New, which he produced in collaboration with his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. “We’ve connected really good in the studio, so it was a really good feeling when Umek supported our first track including it in his Essential Mix even before it was officially released. That really inspired us and we already work on a bunch of new tracks,” announces F.Sonik...F.SONIK

DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Dj Lucca-M.U.M Episode 119

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



Relating to official previews 2009 is the year to become a very difficult one. Recession in europe? A world crisis in economy? Nobody really knows how to call it correctly like it will be. But one thing is for sure. Though people may expect the worst Lucie Kvasnicov・ better known as Lucca by her fans, will expect a highlight in her career.

This tiny and beautiful woman from the Czech republic has played and placed herself into the hearts of her fans throughout the last decade and received much respect from male collegues like Chris Liebing or even Carl Cox who still is one of her favourite turntablist in techno business. All of them estimate Lucca a lot and cherish her style and skills and give her the references a worldwide top-dj does need to have.

Lucca's approach towards the perfect sound has always been accompanied by authenticity and devotion. Firstly captured by the house sound by dj sneak Lucca afterwards seduced herself to the techno vibes from napoli. In this epoque Lucca started to be part in every line up of every essential event concerning this style and was given her own festival organised by her former agency Mersey. As a conclusion she performed at "Live @ Hradhouse 2005" a unique concert which was also released on dvd showing this wonderful location placed in the castle of Boskovica and Lucca as the headliner. But she did not stop changing and created her own sound - the Sound Of Acapulco.

More than five years ago in 2003 it was time for Lucca to launch her own label named Acapulco Records. This move has been considered one of the most important actions for the techno scene among the czech republic which was still developing at this point of time. Releases of Acapulco became the synonym for progressing czech techno and were mentioned in many playlists and dj charts. The relaunch of her label now called Sound Of Acapulco could not knock down her acceptance and did show her skills concerning musical visionary even in a brighter light.

Currently this bright light is being transmitted by her debut album "Reformation" which mirrors Lucca's personal trip through life. It is purely a big exhibition of her personal taste of music and a common production with the german producer Tobias Fiedler. As a special appearance even the famous czech musician Michal Pavlicek provides his guitar riffs on her longplayer. "Reformation" does not only reflect her current life concerning music. "Reformation does sound a little bit like revolution but it is not. Me for myself it sounds slightly to aggressive", Lucca claims in an interview. Moreover her album has been built around the experiences she faced the recent years while travelling and now is the djane's v-card. "Reformation" not just includes her former hit single "Body Dance" it is also packed with twelve new stunning tracks e.g. "Quantum" her personal favourits „Hundertwasser“, „Teleport“ und „Noise Town“ as she says. But Lucca would not be satisfied with her engagement for music if she would not plan to start a new longplayer production starting within the next year. This woman is simply restless.

Meanwhile Lucca is a resident guest in music magazins and an appreciated partner concerning endorsement deals. She recently has been the face of well known manufacturer American Audio and cover act of Raveline Germany's leading magazin for electronic music. She also did a highly acclaimed special mix for this particular issue which was downloaded many many times and shows her well timed presence and knowledge of music if needed. For this reason she has been elected for the forth time in the row "DJ Of The Year" in the Czech Dance Music Awards and still does host her own radio show on Paul van Dyk's Vonyc Radio since may 2008. One of her career dream was fulfilled this year, as Carl Cox invited her to play with him in Space, Ibiza on 11th of August.

M.U.M Presents "Miami Sessions with Technasia"-M.U.M Episode 117

 

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

 

Technasia Biography

For thirteen years Technasia has created a unique east/west fusion that moves seamlessly from the Paris club scene, to the streets of Hong Kong, to the hippest techno venues in Europe. Founded by Charles Siegling and Amil Khan in 1996, Technasia thrived as a duo for almost a dozen years. Now, Charles has gone solo, taking Technasia into 2010 as a one-man project. Unlike a Hollywood divorce, the parting between Siegling and Khan is truly amicable. Hong Kong-based Khan retired from Technasia to spend time with his young family. “You have to live this scene every single day,” says Siegling, “It’s very consuming, Amil didn’t want that anymore.”

Despite the change, Siegling has always been the ‘front man’ in terms of DJing and performing live, so Technasia is as thrilling and full-bodied a live experience as ever. If anything, Siegling is even more determined to infuse every aspect of Technasia with his utter absorption in sound, the passion born of 25 years engrossed in electronic music. Born in Paris and raised in an 11th century chateau, Charles grew up listening to everything from Depeche Mode to Jimi Hendrix. His music-loving dad even introduced him to early British rave tunes. As a university student he continued his musical education the clubs of Paris listening to the likes of Derrick May and Robert Owens; and taking note of the records Laurent Garnier and DJ Deep played on their radio shows.

In the mid-90s Siegling, who did a degree in film studies, went to check out the Hong Kong cinema scene. There, a mutual friend introduced him to Amil Khan and after they discovered a shared taste in electronic music, Technasia was born. They chose to base Technasia and their record label Sino in Hong Kong because there was no scene there, no record shops, no underground, no infrastructure. It was initially a battle for survival, but the location is vital to the Technasia ethos of music as communication. “Language is THE ultimate barrier,” says Siegling. He strives to overcome the barrier in his own life by picking up languages wherever he goes – he speaks Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish and Italian, among others – but ultimately he chooses to communicate through sound. “Electronic music is the greatest language of all. No words, just the vibration, the emotion and the beat.”

Charles has a burning ambition to create music that transcends cultural barriers, and to captivate every audience. The proof of his success is in the list of clubs and festivals Technasia has played. Fans around the globe, from China, to Colombia, to the Czech Republic, know Technasia’s classic anthems including ‘Force’, ‘Oxide’ and ‘Evergreen’. And they know that every Technasia show takes the music to new heights. When DJing, Charles always plays on three decks, showcasing the old-fashioned arts of cutting and scratching. Live, Technasia takes audiences on an unforgettable ride. Charles literally becomes a one-man band, playing keyboards, percussion and acoustic instruments. He even sings. Anything to create irresistible energy and atmosphere. “I want my audience having fun,” explains Siegling. “Not falling asleep, or going off to the bar for a beer.”

The performance aspect of Technasia is complemented by artist albums ‘Future Mix’ and ‘Popsoda’ – which are modern classics. Siegling is also an outspoken promoter of young talent, using the Sino imprint as a launch pad for talent including Joris Voorn, Renato Cohen, Steve Rachmad and young Catalan producer Dosem. He has straightforward criteria for what makes a Sino artist: talent and individuality. Charles is refreshingly direct – he has no patience for industry politics – and he seeks out musicians who have a similar strength of character and clarity of purpose. “I share my knowledge with artists who deserve a push,” says Siegling. “So when they are ready to fly, they can do it on their own.”

Siegling is currently polishing the third Technasia album, due to be released mid-2010, and planning a huge tour which will take the new music to fans around the world. There is 12” single planned for spring, and fans can look forward to remixes from artists including Marc Romboy, Mauro Picotto and Renato Cohen later in the year. Right now, Siegling is in production overdrive: “My neighbours probably see me alone in the studio at 5AM, dancing my ass off!” he jokes. One thing is certain: come 2010, he won’t be dancing alone anymore.

After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game.

He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Matthew Hoag"- M.U.M- Episode 115
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.

M.U.M Presents "Miami Sessions with Joe Roberts"-M.U.M Episode 114
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement






Joe bought his first decks after moving to Manchester in the late 90s to pursue the acid house dream.

With a schedule that involved clubbing three nights at week, he was soon running his own night, ‘Milk’ at the New Order owned Dry Bar, while DJing at other clubs around the city and purveying an ADD-ish eclecticism that had been born out of bleary nights watching the young Chemical Brothers at the Heavenly Social.

Moving back to London, he started writing for DJ Mag, alongside a ‘proper’ job, was a founding member of a well-known music website, before the greedy machination of one of its members taught him the value of having a contract (though possibly not written on a napkin), and continued to put on parties in a variety of clubs and bars.

Following a hugely successful warehouse party in East London to mark the momentous arrival of 07.07.07, he began running a new series of nights, under the name ‘No Way Back’, at a grimy all-night pub in Brixton, moving through a series of bigger venues, and playing guest slots at clubs like Trailer Trash and Neon Noise alongside Fischerspooner, until finding himself running the lounge for Chew the Fat! at The End (including, appropriately enough, on 08.08.08).

With a hugely successful room, helped in a no small part by a large old school jungle collection, a job and residency swiftly followed, with gigs alongside Hervé, Tittsworth, Duke Dumont, Riton, Jack Beats, Trevor Loveys, Drums of Death, Raffertie, Reso, Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990, and more, even standing in as a fake Fake Blood to a packed Corsica Studios when the real Fake Blood failed to show. And summer 2009 saw gigs at Glade and Notting Hill Carnival.

Leaving Chew the Fat! to become an editor at DJ Mag, Joe now has a new party in the offing and is currently in the studio with Dan Cat, who reached the heights of Pete Tong Essential New tune under his previous guise of Cheshire Catz.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Andrew Technique-M.U.M Episode 111
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

M.U.M Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Juliet Sikora-M.U.M Episode 110

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







…This beautiful creature stalks her prey at night. Music is her weapon and beats, her bullets. Trumpet stabs and drum kicks for close-quarters combat. Juliet Sikora is going in for the kill… Elsewhere, you would probably need to jump headfirst off a bridge to experience such an adrenalin rush. But when this young lady is behind the decks, the rush is greater. Don't let her good looks fool you, because she still knows how to control an angry mob. With a flick of the wrist she spins her first disc. The crowd roars in unison and are instantly under her spell. It’s going to be another long night. Born in Strzelce Opolskie in Poland, Juliet has always had a passion for music. She learned how to play the piano at an early age and developed a taste for the electronic side of music while she was still in her teens. After leaving school she took up DJ-ing, organized her own events and hoped to make a career in music, be it behind the scenes or in the limelight. After she obtained a degree in Event Management, it looked like she could either. From Berlin to Miami, club to club and long sessions in the recording studio - This girl never stops. How she even finds time to fit in her day job at a renowned record label, nobody knows. But she does. And like everything else in her life, she does it with a passion that is second to none. This passion is also reflected in her music. After teaming up with Tube & Berger for her first single: ‘Together Now’ released on Opaque Music, she took the German club scene by storm. She went on to produce her own single and released the globally acclaimed ‘Turkish Delight’. This release brought her international fame and a huge fan base with it. Offers started rolling in from all over the world: Istanbul, Miami, London, Berlin, Amsterdam. No matter where she played, she rocked the clubs with her amazing blend of Balearic Deep / Tech House. A lot of remix work followed her fame and the likes of Massimo Santucci, Fuzzy Hair and Cerux and came knocking at her door – even Tube & Berger have hooked up with her again on a new project. New productions are on the way and she’s busy in the studio right now putting the finishing touches to her latest number. All in all, this girl is worth looking out for. Be it for her good looks, or her good taste in music…You never know, she might even be playing in a club near you this weekend!

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with F.Sonik-M.U.M Episode 108
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




F.SONIK

 

The name of F.Sonik continuously pops up on the wish lists of electronic music aficionados in the region. Launching career with the Ghettotek live-act, later joining SDJF initiative and Flow Management, he already established himself as an unique deejay who is not afraid of such challenges as combining Slovenia's landmark techno heritage with some progressive spices. He already transferred some of this who-dares-wins spirit in his own productions, Something New (ft. Tomy DeClerque) being the most successful so far. This track, which immediately gained support of Umek and was already played on BBC Radio 1, predicts the series of fresh releases in 2008. So you better watch out for this guy!

 

Aleš Furlan alias F.Sonik became involved in electronic dance culture on account of one very innocent occurrence in his youth. And it’s a sole fault of his brother that he ended taming the decks, mixers and effects night after night. “It all started when he brought home some studio mixer and Akai sampler,” remembers F.Sonik “Just a few days later I knew I wanted to produce electronic and become a deejay and I was hooked ever since. I started gathering information about the scene, artists, clubs, music and the whole electronic movement. Living on the Slovenian Riviera it was natural to be influenced by Ambasada Gavioli club as I started attending Valentino Kanzyani’s matinees and performances of leading electronic artists on the regular basis.”

 

It was his friend Alessio who helped him with the first steps: "He was caught by this bug well before me, so he already learned to mix and could thought me a thing or two. I still remember how I use to hang out at his parents house everyday struggling to beat-match the records. And after I started performing he even lent me his records." Shortly after that they teamed up for the live performances. "We've named ourselves Ghettotek. Alessio was mixing the records and I was in charge of putting in some effects. This way I got to perform in most of the hip Slovenian clubs even before my solo career really took off."

 

Thriving on a strong and globally accomplished techno heritage Slovenian electronic scene is still heavily directed by techno. But being influenced by the Global Underground music philosophy F.Sonik dared to go where only a few artists in the region dared before him – he decided he will combine the techno heritage with melodic progressive sounds: "Even Umek was there somewhere, but as he was pure techno deejay back then and I was more into progressive stuff, it were the likes of Sasha, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler that have inspired me the most," admits the young artist.


F.Sonik successfully transferred his unique vision of dance music, built on techno and blended with some emotionally rich proggy landscapes, into his own tunes. As a producer he gained the most attention with the track titled Something New, which he produced in collaboration with his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. “We’ve connected really good in the studio, so it was a really good feeling when Umek supported our first track including it in his Essential Mix even before it was officially released. That really inspired us and we already work on a bunch of new tracks,” announces F.Sonik...F.SONIK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Presents "Miami Sessions with Ian F"-M.U.M Episode 103
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


IAN F. 
(Jesus Loved You)

After a decade of successful sound blending Ian F. maintains the status of one of the most fresh-sounding deejays around. Being introduced to the art of music improvisation at an early age and heavily indulging on alternative art as a teenager, he continued to nurse this passion even more after becoming a deejay. Ian F is a member of the Jesus Loved You family, co-founder of Flow Management agency and a long time resident deejay of Ambasadi Gavioli, one of the hottest super clubs in the Mediterranean. He forefronts the new generation of promising young artists that are redefining famous Slovenian techno sound and are heavily supported by artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani. Currently Ian F. spends most of the off-deck time producing music and developing his Flux:ology, which combines elements of different art expressions. After a series of releases and remixes on selected labels in Europe, Asia and USA (Jesus Loved You, Advanced, Pure Substance, Traffica, Mashtronic, Decoded, Vezotonik, Dig:Atel …), he’s dedicated to spread his eclectic art of noise even further in the forthcoming months.
His production was supported by artists such Umek, Valentino Kanzyani, James Zabiela, Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, D Ramirez, Misjah, Wally Lopez, Flash Brothers, Andy Moor, Andrea Ferlin, Nick Muir, Wehbba, Marko Nastic,  …

= = = = = = = = = =

CHALLENGES: Productions. Live Act. New expressions.
Being obsessed with searching for some fresh stuff all the time, the life of producer is a constant battle for Ian F: “Currently I spend most of the off-deck time developing my own sound under the guidance of my studio guru Tomy DeClerque." Ian F’s recent production Subconscious was picked up by local Apple distributor for a TV commercial and can be heard on the MTV. Some other releases on Tested/Agent Funk, Mashtronic rec., Jesus Loved You (Valentino Kanzyani) and Traffica (Marko Nastić) are scheduled and the preliminary arrangements with some UK and Germany based labels were already struck. “Another intriguing project is Flux, for which I am joining forces with Tomy DeClerque, KayKay and Dave Morgan. Flux is a unique live act, a mixture of live music performance and electronic live act with the addition of other art expressions. It’s very alive. The structure and expression of this project varies all the time as it is under constant development. We’ve already performed in Gavioli and at one open-air party, but a lot of work still has to be put into this project.”

Performing at the parties is just one side of Ian F as a musician. He indulges on combining his passion for music with other art expressions on regular basis. He's no stranger to performing at art and fashion exhibitions, poetry recitals, teaming up with pop artists and rock bands or developing soundtrack for an on-line art gallery. He even produced music and performed with a contemporary dance company at selected venues, including premiere at the 7th Annual Gala at the national theatre, which was broadcasted live on the Slovenian national television.


REFERENCES: Performances. Releases. Collaborations.
Ian F is established artist in the region, performing in Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina on the regular basis. His poison is techno & tech-house with expressive warm harmonies and little touches of other genres. As a long running resident of some of the top clubs and events in the north Adriatic region he already performed alongside most of the top techno artists as well as the biggest names in the industry such as Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Derrick May, Tiësto, Steve Lawler, Sasha, John Digweed if we name just a few. He's a resident deejay of Ambasada Gavioli, Fetch the Vibe events and official ambassador of Slovenian Haineken Music events.

Ian F's productions were so far spun and included on track lists and charts by Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, Flash Brothers, Andy Moor, Marko Nastić, Umek, Valentino Kanzyani and other established deejays. His artist production and remixes were released on Slovenian labels such as F-Recordings, Annunaki, Vezotonik and Vezotonik LTD, Malaysia based Pure Substance and Red Flux Music, Atel - DigAtel (USA), Mashtronic rec. from Germany, Advanced rec. (UK) and Croatian Decoded and Decoded Mini.

As a member of SDJF initiative Ian helps develop local club infrastructure and platforms to support young artists on their first steps. Another two promising young artists Andrew Technique and F.Sonik are members of Flow Management agency. Currently he’s also spending a lot of time in and out of the studio with a deejay & producer Aneuria.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Dj Lucca-M.U.M Episode 102
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement



Relating to official previews 2009 is the year to become a very difficult one. Recession in europe? A world crisis in economy? Nobody really knows how to call it correctly like it will be. But one thing is for sure. Though people may expect the worst Lucie Kvasnicov・ better known as Lucca by her fans, will expect a highlight in her career.

This tiny and beautiful woman from the Czech republic has played and placed herself into the hearts of her fans throughout the last decade and received much respect from male collegues like Chris Liebing or even Carl Cox who still is one of her favourite turntablist in techno business. All of them estimate Lucca a lot and cherish her style and skills and give her the references a worldwide top-dj does need to have.

Lucca's approach towards the perfect sound has always been accompanied by authenticity and devotion. Firstly captured by the house sound by dj sneak Lucca afterwards seduced herself to the techno vibes from napoli. In this epoque Lucca started to be part in every line up of every essential event concerning this style and was given her own festival organised by her former agency Mersey. As a conclusion she performed at "Live @ Hradhouse 2005" a unique concert which was also released on dvd showing this wonderful location placed in the castle of Boskovica and Lucca as the headliner. But she did not stop changing and created her own sound - the Sound Of Acapulco.

More than five years ago in 2003 it was time for Lucca to launch her own label named Acapulco Records. This move has been considered one of the most important actions for the techno scene among the czech republic which was still developing at this point of time. Releases of Acapulco became the synonym for progressing czech techno and were mentioned in many playlists and dj charts. The relaunch of her label now called Sound Of Acapulco could not knock down her acceptance and did show her skills concerning musical visionary even in a brighter light.

Currently this bright light is being transmitted by her debut album "Reformation" which mirrors Lucca's personal trip through life. It is purely a big exhibition of her personal taste of music and a common production with the german producer Tobias Fiedler. As a special appearance even the famous czech musician Michal Pavlicek provides his guitar riffs on her longplayer. "Reformation" does not only reflect her current life concerning music. "Reformation does sound a little bit like revolution but it is not. Me for myself it sounds slightly to aggressive", Lucca claims in an interview. Moreover her album has been built around the experiences she faced the recent years while travelling and now is the djane's v-card. "Reformation" not just includes her former hit single "Body Dance" it is also packed with twelve new stunning tracks e.g. "Quantum" her personal favourits „Hundertwasser“, „Teleport“ und „Noise Town“ as she says. But Lucca would not be satisfied with her engagement for music if she would not plan to start a new longplayer production starting within the next year. This woman is simply restless.

Meanwhile Lucca is a resident guest in music magazins and an appreciated partner concerning endorsement deals. She recently has been the face of well known manufacturer American Audio and cover act of Raveline Germany's leading magazin for electronic music. She also did a highly acclaimed special mix for this particular issue which was downloaded many many times and shows her well timed presence and knowledge of music if needed. For this reason she has been elected for the forth time in the row "DJ Of The Year" in the Czech Dance Music Awards and still does host her own radio show on Paul van Dyk's Vonyc Radio since may 2008. One of her career dream was fulfilled this year, as Carl Cox invited her to play with him in Space, Ibiza on 11th of August.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Alexander Madness-M.U.M Episode 98
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




Alexander Madness

“Music is movement, variation, imagination
and eternity. In other words:
the future of sustainable energy. As a
DJ I try to transfer and receive that
form of energy from and to the people
on the dance floor - mixing minimal
techno tracks with electro house floor
fillers. For the rough cases I always
carry progressive and electro tracks
in my DJ bag.”

Alexander Madness (AM) discovered daylight in 1978 in Koper, Slovenia. Already his mother knew that music is going to be one of his main interests: As a kid he always liked to stand in front of roaring speakers. Before diving into the universe of electronic music,
Alexander was listening to rock, pop and all the other genres that are usually popular among the youth.

”I first got to feel the magic of electronic music in 1996, when sounds of fast hardcore hit my ears. Because that kind of music was rare at that time, I soon switched to slower rhythms of chemical progressive.”

In 1998, AM first stepped behind the decks and immediately felt the connection – and it’s still lasting. Like any other DJ he realized that the beginnings were not easy. His first gigs were played at local bars and private parties, but his technique evolved within years, as did his passion for the music.

In the past years he was switching from one e-genre to another until he really got into techno, which he still prefers. He plays mostly minimal/techno and electro/house but in his DJ case you’ll also find progressive and electro tracks.

He has been playing in all the major and recognized clubs, such as Ambasada Gavioli, Lipa, SubSub, K4,The Temple, Fun Academy, Oxygen, Netopir, The Club, The Cube, Playtime, Forest, Tivoli, Arcade, Culture club and many more. He participated also on Final Flash, Fetique-Boutique, Born to be Wild, The way of Freedom and Sound Of Summer events.

Throughout his eight year run and after AM’s guest appearances in numerous venues in Slovenia, Croatia and Italy, AM has also shared the spotlight with some of the industries best DJ’s. Some of his collaborations include artists such as Valentino Kanzyani, Andy Moor, The Filterheadz, Richard Bartz, Len Faki, Bryan Cox, Oxia, Joris Voorn, Matthew Dekay, Seamus Haji, Danilo Vigorito, dA frESh, Mashtronic, Electrixx, Ade Fanton, Virgin Helena, Paul Hazendonk, Petar Dundov, Jamie Bissmire and many more.

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






Stefano from Rimini got into music when he still only 12, by listening to italian dance music and a little bit of house: in the meanwhile it was born the love for making music.

He produces his first production in 1997, by making some dance tracks. In the year 2000 he felt a suddenly upside down, when he first listen to thecno music, thanks to the magic venue in the nearby, The Cocorico' Club, where everything seemed to be different than the other places: it all came to a massive energetic sound!!!!

So in the year 2003 he met my colleague Daniel, a.k.a. CantoDj with whom he started to plan seriously my producer career together. When 2 crazy minds join their forces together, it could only come out a strong and talented project in which his idea and my skills in making music work perfectly together. That's how TEAMTEK was born, a duo project founded by CantoDj and myself.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Andrew Technique-M.U.M Episode 96
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents "Miami Sessions with Umek"-M.U.M Episode 95

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



DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

DJ WEHBBA bio

Hailing from Brazil, Wehbba is one of the latest additions of Brazil's techno ambassadors.
Dentist graduate, licensed diver and purple belt Jiu Jitsu fighter for almost five years, he could
have just stuck to what he does. But DJing and music is what he really does best.
Rodolfo Wehba had it all: a practice dentistry office, working in two big clinics in Sao Paulo and
becoming a purple belt Jiu Jitsu fighter, but that was not enough, he actually crossed the pacific
ocean all the way to Sydney where he divided his time between teaching english and scuba diving,
participating in diving expeditions at the great barrier reef of northern Australia.
His involvement in the techno scence in Australia inspired him to continue his dream of becoming
a DJ. After returning to Brazil he started collecting wax and participating in events. As a producer,
his main aspiration led him to create his own sound in techno and its subgenres.
In 2004, Wehbba released his first national album titled "Revoltin'" with the support from one of
the most established labels in Brazil "URBR". The success of the album translated in the sales as
it sold out in the first three month of its release. That led Wehbba to perform on one of the biggest
festivals in Brazil: Skol Beats. Since then, his carrier advanced to a new level on a national scale.
In 2005, Wehbba reached the no.6 spot on Beatport for a month on a chart roaming with names
like Valentino Kanzyani, Marko Nastic and labels like Intec.
His other ventures got him to work with reputable names like Christian Fischer, owner of
Definition Records Germnay, DJ Link from Amigos Recordings Portugal, Stephane Signore from
Belgium, to name a few. Establishing his ground, Wehbba went on to release on labels such as
Global Underground, Great Stuff, Get Physical, Jesus Loved You, Primate, Craft Music, Yinyang,
Relic, Concept, Titanium, Amigos, among many others.
In 2006, Wehbba managed to sell out his second release, this time supported by the established
german label "Killa Beat Rec." titled "Flapin' my Pie Hole" including smashing minimal electro
remix by Kiddaz.fm's Dave Shokh. The release drew attention of the big players such as DJ Hell,
Felipe and many others. His constant evolving sound has drawn him a lot of attention from press
and public, as he scales his rythm up and down, with his groovy atmosphere as signature. In
addition, his DJ skills also surpass the realm of standards as his dynamic style allows him to flip
from all kind of techno music which carried him to perform globally on a busy schedule starting
from Europe in early 2007.
In 2009, Wehbba launched his label '82 Recordings' making it the beacon for his musical direction
and a breeding ground for honorary talented techno producers. His first release on his label has
generated thousands of sales and reached Beatport Top10 Techno chart while his contributions to
other labels like BluFin and Tronic are attracting more attention from the big players.

 M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with F.Sonik-M.U.M Episode 92
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




F.SONIK

 

The name of F.Sonik continuously pops up on the wish lists of electronic music aficionados in the region. Launching career with the Ghettotek live-act, later joining SDJF initiative and Flow Management, he already established himself as an unique deejay who is not afraid of such challenges as combining Slovenia's landmark techno heritage with some progressive spices. He already transferred some of this who-dares-wins spirit in his own productions, Something New (ft. Tomy DeClerque) being the most successful so far. This track, which immediately gained support of Umek and was already played on BBC Radio 1, predicts the series of fresh releases in 2008. So you better watch out for this guy!

 

Aleš Furlan alias F.Sonik became involved in electronic dance culture on account of one very innocent occurrence in his youth. And it’s a sole fault of his brother that he ended taming the decks, mixers and effects night after night. “It all started when he brought home some studio mixer and Akai sampler,” remembers F.Sonik “Just a few days later I knew I wanted to produce electronic and become a deejay and I was hooked ever since. I started gathering information about the scene, artists, clubs, music and the whole electronic movement. Living on the Slovenian Riviera it was natural to be influenced by Ambasada Gavioli club as I started attending Valentino Kanzyani’s matinees and performances of leading electronic artists on the regular basis.”

 

It was his friend Alessio who helped him with the first steps: "He was caught by this bug well before me, so he already learned to mix and could thought me a thing or two. I still remember how I use to hang out at his parents house everyday struggling to beat-match the records. And after I started performing he even lent me his records." Shortly after that they teamed up for the live performances. "We've named ourselves Ghettotek. Alessio was mixing the records and I was in charge of putting in some effects. This way I got to perform in most of the hip Slovenian clubs even before my solo career really took off."

 

Thriving on a strong and globally accomplished techno heritage Slovenian electronic scene is still heavily directed by techno. But being influenced by the Global Underground music philosophy F.Sonik dared to go where only a few artists in the region dared before him – he decided he will combine the techno heritage with melodic progressive sounds: "Even Umek was there somewhere, but as he was pure techno deejay back then and I was more into progressive stuff, it were the likes of Sasha, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler that have inspired me the most," admits the young artist.


F.Sonik successfully transferred his unique vision of dance music, built on techno and blended with some emotionally rich proggy landscapes, into his own tunes. As a producer he gained the most attention with the track titled Something New, which he produced in collaboration with his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. “We’ve connected really good in the studio, so it was a really good feeling when Umek supported our first track including it in his Essential Mix even before it was officially released. That really inspired us and we already work on a bunch of new tracks,” announces F.Sonik...F.SONIK

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

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Marko Nastic"-M.U.M Episode 88

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


Marko Nastic’s Biography :


Welcome to the world of Marko Nastic, the leading South Eastern European DJ. In a troubled
Serbia of the 90’s, Marko and his buddies built one of the most vibrant club scenes in Eastern
Europe, the one that inspired writers of Mixmag, The Face, DJ and NME to write accolades many
moons ago. They resisted dark forces of political madness with electronic music and a
celebration of life.
DJing and music were always part of Marko Nastic’s background: even in his pre-teen years he
was fascinated with synthesizers, drum machines and other sound making gadgets. When
techno started filtering through to Serbia in the early 90’s, Marko eagerly entered the scene.
Soon word on a teenage techno prodigy started spreading around town and this energy
channeled into a young & aspiring DJ team called Teenage Techno Punks – all of whom were
under 18, but performing like they were born on the 1210s. Nastic was the leader of the pack;
soon to become the hottest talent of South Eastern Europe’s electronic scene. The queues to
enter clubs in the region on the nights they performed were longer than ever. The word soon
started to spread beyond the boundaries of Serbia.
Just as techno music was becoming popular in Serbia, the Balkan conflict escalated. Marko
admits that he was too young to fully realize the gravity of the situation, but it did have an
impact on his life. “Things were tense, but a lot of it luckily went over my head,” he admits. “It
also meant that buying records then was very difficult and the choice was poor”.
These circumstances shaped and strengthened Marko just like other kids there. The free parties
they threw during those times are still an urban legend in Belgrade.
After the war, the club scenes in neighboring countries became aware of Nastic’s unparalleled
DJing skills and his distinctive three-deck style. Marko has since matured into a DJ who cannot
be labeled as purely techno, house or minimal; he’s all of that, and more.
Marko was a member of the original Recycled Loops crew. After that label stopped, Marko
joined Valentino’s ‘Jesus Loved You’ and started three labels himself, Recon Warriors, which put
Marko on the charts, followed by Recon Light and Traffica.
Also Marko has loads of projects running. For example Space Explorers with Marko Milosaljevic,
Tango and Cash with Kobaya and don’t forget the projects with Dejan Milicevic.
Marko did his first non-European tour in 2002, which started in Brazil. Now he regularly plays
gigs all over the world. Since 2006 he is the author and host of the radio show “Music For Body
And Soul” on the leading Serbian radio station B92.
His authorial album is due to be released.

M.U.M Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Alex Bau"-M.U.M Episode 87
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





What's your credo?

Where are not many dj's of this type - dj's who believed in techno from the first minute, dj's who have experienced techno from the very beginning, dj's who have made techno their own thing, dj's who have created their own unique styles or even more - who have developed one over the years and who's name's are synonymous with that specific sound. alex bau is one of those dj's. at the same time, however, there are some slight differences with this guy. why focus on just one style of music? why only minimal sounds? why only techno? why, if you could have a well orchestrated combination of both?

Is it related to the fact that for alex bau, there was once a time before techno? with thousands of records in a collection that spans through many different types, styles and genres of music, certainly there have been many individual records which have left their own, indelible marks. there's no doubt about that! for instance, alex still does depeche mode nights from time to time, just for fun. but his activities with techno don't suffer at all from that, not in the least! with his 5+ hour sets at his first resident club in his southeast bavarian home area, the "libella", where dj hell also started his career back in the 80's, he achieved the reputation as someone who was totally aware of what he was doing, totally dedicated to it, but also someone who was totally infatuated with it. he hosted his own radio show for over 2 years on a local radio station, still the only techno show in the area. however, after countless gigs at the local clubs the time was deemed to be right to prove that he was also able to play at other venues around the globe. while collaborating with his friend sven dedek, whose productions were mainly released under the moniker's "basic implant" or "electric envoy" on labels lsuch as "fine audio recordings" from chris liebing, their tracks hit the technofloors in a very impressive way. during that time he was also able to collect international experiences behind the decks as sven played live. releases like the "phase edit ep", a highly acclaimed and well sold rework of some nitzer ebb ebm classics, or their work for dave angel's "rotation", justin berkovi's "predicaments" or pascal feos' "pv-records" enabled them to reach a much larger audience. finally, after numerous releases for different labels beside his own "toneman", alex released his debut-album "connected" in late 2004. "connected" immediately drew the attention of many high class dj's such as chris liebing, pascal feos and good groove, just to name a few. the fact that these artists, all of whom were working with different styles, grabbed the tracks from "connected", shows that the name of the album couldn't have been chosen any better.

After starting his own label (toneman) back in 2000, alex also started to work on his solo productions for labels such as chris liebing's "clr" or the montreal based label, "default recordings". montreal can be seen as kind of a gauge of alex's dj activities! within 3 years he was booked in montreal four times and his set from the legendary night at aria from january 2006 was even released as a mix-cd, "live at aria / montreal" so that alex came back months later to perform for the release party, once again a night to remember for the montreal techno movement. at this point in time alex was already booked as the headliner and it was reported by numerous emails and guest book entries that it was hardly a mistake to do so

but it's not only montreal where alex is being booked again and again; there are many other places, which is a good indicator that he seems to be a guy who understands what to do when standing in front of a crowd, someone who is always trying to bring the party to the max. clubs like frankfurt's "u60311", munich's "electric delicate", würzburg's "airport", or the legendary "tresor" in berlin are not only the trademarks of german techno club-culture, they can also be found on alex's gig list. brazil, usa, canada, poland, croatia, serbia, holland or the closer austria and switzerland are some of the tour stops on alex's calender, and no matter where, all over the places people can hear and feel how interesting, versatile and powerful techno can be if you understand how to combine minimal and straight techno as a constant up and down. everything is completely under control while the party is going wild, and that is what alex always goes for.

The fact that alex has become an official artist on the highly acclaimed label "zenit", that he has been the platform for acts like marco carola, adam beyer, the advent, gaetano parisio and many more, is the logical consequence of years of dedicated, hard work in good, high quality techno. techno in its purest form, just as described above, is the goal for alex - whether or not it involves playing or producing. on his current album "credo", minimal tunes go together with peaktime slammers in a way that appears obvious and logical. techno can do a lot, if you let it do so. that's the credo - his credo!

Special Thanks to Alex Bau...

M.U.M & 1605 Sessions Presents "Miami Sessions with Umek"-M.U.M Episode 86
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement



DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Presents "Miami Sessions with Ian F"-M.U.M Episode 85
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


IAN F. 
(Jesus Loved You)

After a decade of successful sound blending Ian F. maintains the status of one of the most fresh-sounding deejays around. Being introduced to the art of music improvisation at an early age and heavily indulging on alternative art as a teenager, he continued to nurse this passion even more after becoming a deejay. Ian F is a member of the Jesus Loved You family, co-founder of Flow Management agency and a long time resident deejay of Ambasadi Gavioli, one of the hottest super clubs in the Mediterranean. He forefronts the new generation of promising young artists that are redefining famous Slovenian techno sound and are heavily supported by artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani. Currently Ian F. spends most of the off-deck time producing music and developing his Flux:ology, which combines elements of different art expressions. After a series of releases and remixes on selected labels in Europe, Asia and USA (Jesus Loved You, Advanced, Pure Substance, Traffica, Mashtronic, Decoded, Vezotonik, Dig:Atel …), he’s dedicated to spread his eclectic art of noise even further in the forthcoming months.
His production was supported by artists such Umek, Valentino Kanzyani, James Zabiela, Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, D Ramirez, Misjah, Wally Lopez, Flash Brothers, Andy Moor, Andrea Ferlin, Nick Muir, Wehbba, Marko Nastic,  …

= = = = = = = = = =

CHALLENGES: Productions. Live Act. New expressions.
Being obsessed with searching for some fresh stuff all the time, the life of producer is a constant battle for Ian F: “Currently I spend most of the off-deck time developing my own sound under the guidance of my studio guru Tomy DeClerque." Ian F’s recent production Subconscious was picked up by local Apple distributor for a TV commercial and can be heard on the MTV. Some other releases on Tested/Agent Funk, Mashtronic rec., Jesus Loved You (Valentino Kanzyani) and Traffica (Marko Nastić) are scheduled and the preliminary arrangements with some UK and Germany based labels were already struck. “Another intriguing project is Flux, for which I am joining forces with Tomy DeClerque, KayKay and Dave Morgan. Flux is a unique live act, a mixture of live music performance and electronic live act with the addition of other art expressions. It’s very alive. The structure and expression of this project varies all the time as it is under constant development. We’ve already performed in Gavioli and at one open-air party, but a lot of work still has to be put into this project.”

Performing at the parties is just one side of Ian F as a musician. He indulges on combining his passion for music with other art expressions on regular basis. He's no stranger to performing at art and fashion exhibitions, poetry recitals, teaming up with pop artists and rock bands or developing soundtrack for an on-line art gallery. He even produced music and performed with a contemporary dance company at selected venues, including premiere at the 7th Annual Gala at the national theatre, which was broadcasted live on the Slovenian national television.


REFERENCES: Performances. Releases. Collaborations.
Ian F is established artist in the region, performing in Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina on the regular basis. His poison is techno & tech-house with expressive warm harmonies and little touches of other genres. As a long running resident of some of the top clubs and events in the north Adriatic region he already performed alongside most of the top techno artists as well as the biggest names in the industry such as Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Derrick May, Tiësto, Steve Lawler, Sasha, John Digweed if we name just a few. He's a resident deejay of Ambasada Gavioli, Fetch the Vibe events and official ambassador of Slovenian Haineken Music events.

Ian F's productions were so far spun and included on track lists and charts by Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, Flash Brothers, Andy Moor, Marko Nastić, Umek, Valentino Kanzyani and other established deejays. His artist production and remixes were released on Slovenian labels such as F-Recordings, Annunaki, Vezotonik and Vezotonik LTD, Malaysia based Pure Substance and Red Flux Music, Atel - DigAtel (USA), Mashtronic rec. from Germany, Advanced rec. (UK) and Croatian Decoded and Decoded Mini.

As a member of SDJF initiative Ian helps develop local club infrastructure and platforms to support young artists on their first steps. Another two promising young artists Andrew Technique and F.Sonik are members of Flow Management agency. Currently he’s also spending a lot of time in and out of the studio with a deejay & producer Aneuria.

M.U.M & Fade Records Presents "Miami Sessions with"Chris Fortier"-M.U.M Episode 84
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





While many people may claim to know Chris’ sound, with their focus on continually labeling him one thing or another, Chris is equally as focused on his efforts to push back the musical boundaries. It is testament to the man that he continues to develop his sound and musical direction, after all, as the man says himself “I just like to play good underground music, I don’t limit myself.”

It is artists such as Chris Fortier who are inextricably linked to the underground dance music scene that are the genuinely pushing the sound forward. Chris’ determination to continue to push the envelope can be seen in all aspects of his career. Proof of this can be found on his recent triple CD compilation Balance and his recent solo production under the 40oz moniker and his stellar debut artist album As Long As The Moment Exits.

The Balance CD genuinely offers something exciting and underground to the current stale compilation market. Boasting tracks from across the musical spectrum like David Gilmore Girls, Global Communication and Floppy Sounds through to Slam, Matthew Jonson, Rabbit in the Moon and Bent. It is little wonder the CD was name checked for compilation of the year by numerous international press publications.

Under his 40oz production guise Chris has released the several EPs that musically could fit comfortably on labels such as Cocoon, Kompakt or Get Physical. Further remixes of Alexi Delano, Joshua Collins, Lee Burridge, Freaky Chakra and John Selway show Chris’ genre defying sound at it’s underground best. Taking this a step further in 2007, his debut artist album was released to countless plaudits and impeccable praise. Not satisfied with status quo, look for the boundaries to continue to be pressed and pushed with each coming musical excursion.

With a DJ career spanning 15 plus years, he has continually been a crowd favourite, confirmed by his very first residency at the legendary “Aahz” in Orlando through to more recent residencies at The Cross in London and at Twilo in New York. Since a debut European tour in 1997, Chris has gone on to consistently tour the globe behind numerous singles, remixes and no less than 9 mix albums. You can catch him as easily in Tokyo as in Buenos Aires and all points in between on any given weekend.

To those that know Fortier’s history, they know to expect plenty more to come, for those that are just getting initiated, Welcome!


About Fade Records:

Fade Records was created out of necessity in 1993. At the helm is American DJ Chris Fortier. Chris and studio partner, Neil Kolo, needed an outlet to release the tracks they were producing together. With not many options in the States, it seemed obvious to start a label and create the opportunities themselves. The first release was in 1994 called "...For All the People". This track gave them a voice and platform for the future productions. The next three tracks, "All I Got", "Separation" and "So Good" were more highly praised and received heavy support from the biggest DJs out there, including Sasha, John Digweed and Dave Seaman. Equal support came from the USA from Kimball Collins, DJ Icey and John Debo as well as the brand new Mixmag USA (which eventually would be known as Mixer). This great support put the duo on the map and started every label in the UK demanding their talents for remix duties. After several years of building their profile through remixes and the odd single, Chris wanted to re-launch the label in the hopes to help discover and cultivate new talent from America. Steve Porter was the man for this job as Chris discovered him at age 17. With the productions of Steve Porter and others like Derek Howell, Royal Sapien, Funk Harmony Park & Tonepushers, the label is as strong as ever and having great success worldwide.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Presents "Miami Sessions with"Patrick Zigon"-M.U.M Episode 81
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


Patrick Zigon Bio (Cocoon rec.)


Patrick Zigon is hailing from Germany’s beautiful and inspiring city Konstanz at the Lake of Constance, which probably is one of the reasons why he drops such jaunty and fresh beats. Being active in the electronic music scene since 1996, Patrick since then eminently contributes to the establishment and development of electronic music in South Germany as a DJ, producer and promoter.

First own releases promptly showed up in the hard-to-get-in English House scene and in the boxes of international big names. Though Patrick never liked to be pigeonholed, which he perfectly underlines with his productions for labels such as Sven Väths’ Cocoon Recordings, Anthony Rothers’ Datapunk, Puzzle Traxx, Sounderground, Tanzbar, Turbo, Great Stuff, Trapez, Traum, Treibstoff, Kling Klong and Session Deluxe. Especially his remixes for artists such as Guy Gerber, Gregor Tresher, Chris Fortier, Gui Boratto, Martin Eyerer, Extrawelt etc. show his status in the current electronic music-scene.

2005 he created himself his own little Traumraum (the german word for Dreamroom), which is not only the name of his production studio, but also the name of his event series @ venues such as his long-term Stuttgart based resident club Climax Institutes. His current releases and remixes perfectly mirror, for what Patricks name stands nowadays – hypnotic Tech House with good portion of soul.

In September 2008 Patrick Zigon was honoured with the Bodensee Music Award (www.bma2008.de), in the category „Best Electronic DJ“.

M.U.M & Tronic Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with Christian Smith Live@Argentina"-M.U.M Episode 78

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





Born in Stockholm, the DJ/producer has spent the last decade working relentlessly to bring his amalgamation of funky house and tribal techno to a global platform. Although Swedish by birth,

Christian spent much of his youth in Frankfurt, Germany,where his father was stationed as a pilot, and this turn fate played an unexpected role in determining his musical tastes.

It was the early eighties and the music at the time was early electro, soul, funk and late disco music. Groups like The SOS Band, Newcleus, funk bands like Cameo and tracks like Fade To Grey by Visage had a huge influence on Christian. Although his older brother and sister would bring home the dj mix tapes from the big clubs, with music from the pre house days. This is what Christian turned on to.

By the time Christian had turned fourteen, he looked old enough to get into the clubs himself and became, by his own admission, "a manic train spotter." Frequenting Sven Vaths Dorian Grey residency, this club had a big effect on Christian. He went to the clubs for the music and to check out the DJ's.
If Dorian Grey was Smiths introduction to the realms of electronic music, then it would be his experiences in another of dance music's capital cities that would help mould and solidify Christians deeply entrenched love for club music.

Moving to New York in 1989, Christian discovered that, running parallel to its high profile house community, the city that never sleeps also had a thriving techno scene. All the early techno clubs had started in New York, with Joey Beltram at The Limelight and soon afterwards Jeff Mills.

After finishing high school in 1992, Christian moved to Washington DC to study international business at university and, in his spare time started DJing. He never dreamt DJing would become his career. Smith nonetheless started playing at big raves in Washington and Baltimore, spinning to audiences of between 500 and 3,000 people. Lets not forget, this was the early nineties, and his choice of music was somewhat different to his trademark funky techno and house fusion, as it was the hard trance and techno days. He was playing tracks on labels like Harthouse, R&S and Music Man.

Unsurprisingly, given the nature of dance music's loosely defined early nineties status, Smiths first record Overdose as Neuromancer, came out on in 1992 on a label called Music Now, only for the imprint to release a follow up record by none other than BTs Embrace The Future. Back then Christian was already making house infused techno, probably less structured and not as well produced as nowadays.

Indeed, Christians earliest DJing experiences also played a definitive role in his future work, as he first met regular collaborator John Selway in 1993. Selway, who was playing the same rave circuit as Christian at this time was also working in New Yorks renowned Satellite Records store, the place where Smith, who was still based in Washington, would order his tunes from. John and Christian connected musically and therefore decided to hook up and make some tracks and the Smith and Selway sound was born.

In 1994, Christian set up the Tronic label, and, despite releasing three well-received records, put the label on hold until three years later, in 1997. Christian put the label on hold, as he was still a full time university student in Washington. By '97 he felt really inspired by DJing and the music that this prompted him to get working seriously with his label TRONIC. However, on completing his studies, Christian started to go to New York more frequently to collaborate with John Selway. Subsequently putting out collaborative EPs on Dave Angels Rotation label and Primate, Smiths own 1997 release, Goldrush the fourth release on Tronic also caused a serious reaction, this was the point everything took off. Tronic became a popular label and Goldrush got licensed all over the place. It was a really hard disco house tune that DJs like Sneak picked up on and it was also the first time a lot of people reacted to one of his releases. DJs like Carl Cox and Dave Angel, people who were my idols in the early days really supported it. It did so well that every month Christian had to press up more copies!

Back in Stockholm, Smith noticed that the demand for his tightly mixed, three decks DJing had increased and was booked to play all over Europe and beyond. In an interesting parallel development to Christians heightened profile, the latter part of the nineties saw Swedish producers like Adam Beyer, Joel Mull and Cari Lekebusch also attain an international following. From 1997 to 1999, the Swedish sound was really hyped. Christian comes from a different background, from a funk and soul background. A point Christian feels strongly about, and is quick to detach himself from any notions of purism. Adamant that he was listening to house before techno, he also points out that, way back in 1994, when he set up Tronic, he encountered some resistance from his distributors because he wanted to release material that was somewhere in between house and techno. The distributors advised to produce/release house or techno as it would sell better, but something in between wasn’t going to work," Christian feels that history has proved him right. As much as Christian dislikes the term, Tronic was one of the first tech-house labels, music that house and techno DJs could play; Christian calls his style housey techno!

Despite his newfound success, Christian didn't rest on his laurels, and, for rest of the nineties, he focused on DJing, producing and remixing as much as possible. Releasing more EPs on Tronic, Intec and Primevil, the Swedish DJ says that though one of his releases, Vanguard caught the attention and support of BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong, he had to keep working as hard as ever. The really big crossover records like Move!, on Intec and the releases on labels like Rotation and Intec opened up his work to a lot of people.

While there's no doubt that Christians distinctive work injected a much-needed sense of funk back into techno, he made it accessible to a wider audience. His DJing is of an exceptionally high standard; Smiths willingness to travel to literally every country in the globe has been another determining factor in his ascendance.

Christian very much enjoys Asia and Eastern Europe as his favorite new places to play in. On a recent South East Asia tour, successful dates were achieved in South Korea, Kuala Lumpur and Ministry Of Sound in Bangkok. Japan is a place were Christian has a large following due to the rocking sets at Womb in Tokyo.

While Smiths releases ensured his bookings continued to soar, the Swedish DJ/producer identifies the release of his first major mix CD, Tronic Treatment as another turning point in his career. Weighing in at twenty eight tracks and recorded live in Australia on three decks, the smooth mix moves from funky house through to dubby, rolling tech-house, into pulsating techno. In fact, as things get faster, his selection becomes more varied, with the brooding electro of Umeks Zeta Reticula, the dark bass powered tones of Adam Beyers Remainings and Deetrons A1 before ending with the deep, Detroit stylings of James Ruskins mix of Metier. It’s one of the most compelling, hand raising, foot stamping interpretations of modern house and techno of recent years, and its no surprise that Christians profile was raised by the mix. His sense of diversity and unwillingness to adhere to one dimension is an ethic Christian believes is inherent in the worlds finest DJs. Christian was most inspired by Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier. Although both DJ’s are quite different what Christian saw in Carl was the ability to mix continuously between three turntables, and create that musical fusion.

Special Thanks to Hugo B & Christian Smith!!!!!!

 M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Andrew Technique"- M.U.M- Episode 77
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

 M.U.M & 1605 proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Umek"- M.U.M- Episode 76
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement






DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

 M.U.M & Minus proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Richie Hawtin"- M.U.M- Episode 75
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




Richie Hawtin Biography 
 
Artist, DJ, conceptualist and ambassador, more than anyone else in modern electronic music, Richie
Hawtin has relentlessly proved himself to be a true innovator. The one-man mogul behind acclaimed
Techno imprints Plus 8 & Minus sends signals out all over the world from his HQ in an old fire station in
Windsor, Ontario – just across the border from Detroit Techno City. The signals are constantly evolving, his
Plastikman persona gave Techno a unique face with a series of four ruthlessly minimal albums of skeletal
beauty, while breathtaking festival live sets at Glastonbury and Tribal Gathering helped invent stadium
Techno. His “Decks, EFX & 909” album released on novamute in 1999 expanded the concept of a DJ
mix album beyond the imagination of most DJs. As a pioneering DJ and party promoter he was banned
from entering America for 18 months. Yet this jet-setting international futurist is as at home exhibiting
alongside acclaimed modern sculptor Anish Kapoor as he is headlining a bush rave with Josh Wink
somewhere in Western Australia.
 
More of a decade into his career, it’s no surprise that the every-youthful Hawtin is up to something new.
This time, he’s reconstructing the DJ mix album even further with “DE9: Closer To The Edit”, the
groundbreaking new album set for release on the novamute label in September 2001.
 
His first mix album, for the Mixmag Live series, saw him use extra effects and drum machines as long ago
as 1993, “Decks, EFX & 909” cut laser-style between tracks and now, “DE9: Closer To The Edit”, sees
Hawtin use his sampler to tear the skin and the flesh from the tracks until there’s just a skeleton left, which
he reassembles into a kind of Frankenstein’s robot. The result is a mix album like you’ve never heard
before.
Hawtin describes this unique process “I recorded, sampled, cut and spliced over 100 tracks down into
their most basic components. I ended up with over 300 loops, ranging in different lengths. I started to
recreate and reinterpret each track and then put the pieces back together, as if an audio jigsaw puzzle –
using effects and edits as the glue between each piece”.
 
A classic like Carl Craig’s ‘4 My Peepz’ (under his Paperclip People guise) breathes in and out in less
than a minute, like a lonely spirit lost on the hard drive.
 
“I don’t like mix CDs, everyone’s being lazy, so I gotta do something different,” says Hawtin. “Some people
think it’s about me using some extra equipment – a drum machine and some effects - but it’s a whole
philosophy really. ‘Let’s take it to the extreme, to somewhere that’s it never been before’ “
 
Hawtin believes the whole DJ thing is stuck in a groove. So beyond “DE9…” he is championing a new DJ
system developed in Holland called Final Scratch, with Plus 8 partner John Acquaviva. Dance and
Electronic music is the most technology-based genre of all, but to Hawtin’s frustration it’s still rooted in a
music delivery system developed in the 19th Century: the gramophone record. Even though more and
more DJs play tracks burnt onto CD, vinyl still rules because it’s easier and instinctive to control. Final
Scratch links up to the normal two-turntables-and-mixer set up, but lets you play tracks stored on a laptop
using a special piece of vinyl as a ‘mouse’, or controller. You can access literally thousands of tracks, and
scratch, cut, slow and mix them just like normal records using this special piece of vinyl. It’s nothing short
of revolutionary. As Hawtin enthuses: “It feels and acts like a regular record.” He’s already using Final
Scratch to play unreleased tracks by Josh Wink and Speedy J, and special re-edits of some of
Hawtin’s classics and personal faves.
 
 Born in Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, on June 4th 1970 Hawtin emigrated with his family when he was
nine to Windsor, Ontario, where his dad Mick still works as a robot technician in the General Motors car
factory (his mother, Brenda, is in real estate). Richie cheekily borrowed his dad’s persona for his house
alias Robotman. His brother Matthew, who shares the Windsor fire station studio complex with Richie, is a
visual artist. By 15 Richie was creeping out of the house to cross the border and go clubbing in Detroit. By
17 he was DJing at The Shelter, a dark basement club where he mixed House and Techno with
Industrial music by Nitzer Ebb and Front 242. He had his own show on Detroit’s 96.3FM – inspired by
a late ‘80s Detroit radio DJ called The Wizard, now better known as Jeff Mills.
 
As a teenager Hawtin, already into Breakdancing and Electro, was stirred by the radically beautiful machine
music being fashioned by Detroit Techno pioneers like Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin
Saunderson. In 1989 he set up Plus 8 Records with John Acquaviva to release their own tracks and
push new artists. They started running parties in Detroit. But far from welcoming them, the tight-knit Detroit
Techno scene initially turned a cold shoulder on the two renegade Canadians.
 
“It pissed a lot of people off because there wasn’t anyone else in the city doing it – it took someone from
the outside to come in and say, ‘Look, wake up,’” Richie recalls. “These guys [May, Atkins and
Saunderson] have left. They’re doing their thing overseas.”
 
Plus 8 began to gather momentum with a richly varied catalogue of hard-nosed, cutting edge Techno
from artists like Speedy J, Dan Bell and Kenny Larkin. Along with the resurgence of Detroit’s
confrontational Underground Resistance, this marked the second wave of Detroit Techno. “We all put
the focus back on Detroit for a while, we didn’t want to make traditional Techno, we were inspired by
traditional Techno. Derick, Kevin and Juan had sent these waves all over the world and we were the first to
feel the rebounds of their ripples”. 
 
By 1993 Richie Hawtin’s Detroit parties had become legendary intense affairs as freaky dancing clubbers
lost themselves in strange, dark warehouses transformed into disorientating warrens by walls of black
plastic sheeting. Inspired by this, Hawtin elected to take Techno one stage further and develop his virtual
Plastikman alter ego: a red and black gremlin that is tattooed on his forearm. He didn’t want a collection
of tracks; he wanted to make an album that swallowed up the concentrated energy of those parties and
spit it back out as something new. An album, “Sheet One” was recorded in a rollercoaster 48 hour studio
session and released on novamute in early ‘93 and was soon followed by the brilliant ‘Spastik’, a single
recorded three weeks later after a long night dancing to Derrick May.
 
Hawtin was already shifting identities like a spy changing roles: his 1992 album “Dimension Intrusion”,
under his Fuse alias, had played a key part in the Warp label’s groundbreaking “Artificial Intelligence”
armchair-Techno series, but he wanted to reach further. He remembered the strange shapes that his
friends threw at those warehouse parties, the different creatures they almost became. “Like plasticine,” he
says. “That was the whole idea of Plastikman, it was all very viscous and pliable and moveable.”
Plastikman wasn’t just a clever alter ego – it was a role for you to try on too. The sound was rubbery and
sparse; its moments of melodic steel arriving unnervingly. The first album, “Sheet One”, played up Hawtin’s
reputation for LSD and was promoted with a free sheet of fake acid tabs.
Hawtin developed a Plastikman live show that still tours the world. Huge audiences at Glastonbury and
Tribal Gathering twitched to its twittering insect rhythms, lost in a soundtrack far freakier than anything else
those events had to offer. In 1994 the second album on novamute, “Musik”, let a little human warmth seep
onto the clattering Plastikman rhythms, but despite its closing robot lullaby ‘Lasttrak’, it was, if anything,
even more discomforting
Just as the little Plastikman gremlin was becoming an international phenomenon, American immigration
officials banned Hawtin from entering America for working illegally. He was barred from entering the States
for 18 months. It was a devastating experience.
 
“My girlfriend lived there and most of my experiences were in Detroit, my friends were there and all of my
musical inspiration was there – and suddenly it was like, ‘See that building over there? You can see your
inspiration, but you can’t go there.’” Now, typically, he believes the ban had its benefits. It was at this point
the Chemicals Brothers and Underworld began to break out of the dance world and into a wider
Rock arena. Hawtin now wonders whether he might have gone further down the stadium Techno route.
Instead, grounded in Windsor, he went back to the studio to reinvent. “When that happened it was the
worst day of my life,” he says now, “and it was one of the best things too.”
 
The next Plastikman project, ‘Klinik’, wouldn’t come together. “I had tried to follow those records up but
there were feelings of pressure at that point,” he says now. Stuck in the studio, depressed, Hawtin set
himself a new challenge and gave it a deadline. He pressurised himself back into action, releasing a series
of ‘Concept’ EPs based on the months of the year. Each release would feature two tracks recorded in one
month only using a set template of sounds. They would be released and then forgotten. The discipline of
producing 24 tracks in 12 months rewired the creative circuits. “It progressed me to a different audience, it
progressed me with effects which came into my sets and it progressed me into more of this spatial
environment I was trying to get to,” says Hawtin.
 
It was the starting point for his last Plastikman album “Consumed”, which replaced the angry black and red
gremlin with dark, abstract sleeve art and the tense rhythms with swathes of bass and melody. Released
on novamute in 1998, it was acclaimed in countries like France – where conceptual artists are traditionally
celebrated. “Consumed” elevated Hawtin to a new status, he was now not just an international Techno
star, but a contemporary artist. Asked to contribute to a French Millennium Exhibition celebrating
different ideas of beauty, Hawtin created a musical installation based around the clicks, hisses and pops of
vinyl – a beautiful sound, he argued, to his generation. The exhibition also featured the work of world
famous sculptor, Anish Kapoor, who Hawtin had long been a fan. In fact “Consumed”’s unique textures
had been inspired by Kapoor’s beguiling, futuristic, curved shapes and the cover art echoed the sculptor’s
famous obelisk. “I was walking around those sculptures and putting my head into some of them. They had
like a sonic quality like chambers of nothingness – and that’s exactly what I was trying to hear. Suddenly I
was able to walk around a physical version of what I wanted to do musically.” Hawtin was also moved by
the mournful purple washes of the late Mark Rothko, which now hang in London’s Tate Modern.
Rothko’s work, says Hawtin, “is very, very subtle, just washes of texture. It kind of gave me a visual
perspective of what I was trying to get out of my head, sonically. On a flat surface.”
 
This is where Hawtin is at now. Constantly touring all over the world and keeping fans updated on his
world wide DJ travels via his website diaries; taking his dad out to dinner with John Peel (a big deal for
his Peel–fan father especially now his son is a huge favourite of the radio DJ); pushing himself to his
creative boundaries and taking Techno with him. Not just to the middle of the dancefloor, but also above it.
 
“The good Techno musicians enjoy having a good time, but can see beyond it,” Hawtin notes. “It’s the
closest to a contemporary art form.” With Jeff Mills providing an installation to the recent Sonar event in
Barcelona, Germany’s Thomas Brinkmann moving from conceptual art into conceptual Techno, and
increasing connections between the two worlds.
 
As Techno and art move closer together Hawtin sees it as a logical part of his constant reinvention. “It’s
about setting a standard for yourself and progressing yourself. Showing people you can do something
interesting that’s more than just dance music.”

 M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Tomy De Clerque"- M.U.M- Episode 74
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


Tomy De Clerque

A member of the new generation of Slovenian deejays, Tomy De Clerque grew up in an environment full of promising development in the sphere of electronic dance music. In front of his eyes the local scene has been turning into a globally acknowledged style of techno music in the hands of artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani. A natural choice for a guy with talent and ambition was to jump the train – and Tommy DeClerque has road it ever since.
Performing as a deejay since he turned seventeen Tomy DeClerque soon realised that making his own production was essential if he wanted his carrier to really take off. He hooked up with his friend Zox to form the Tomy or Zox duo, and their hard work paid off as their My Desire single received some favourable feedback in Spain, Russia and Mexico. However, it was the Music Makes Me Happy hit single that caught the attention of top artists being remixed by the likes of Mainframe and ATCF, and released on several prestigious compilations, such as Ministry Of Sound, DJ Awards at Pacha Ibiza and Blanco Y Negro Mix. ‘The greatest satisfaction, though, – Tomy says – was when we got set as Essential new tune of the week on Pete Tong’s celebrated Essential selection radio show.’
After parting ways with Fox, Tomy felt that it was time to take a break from a demanding life of producer and performer, before he went on to start his solo career. Searching for genuine underground sound that could revive the authentic feeling of electronic dance music he experienced in his youth Tomy turned to Valentino Kanzyani’s Jesus Loved You label releasing a much praised I Don’t Know. Driven by his passion for teamwork, a lot of his studio work is done in collaboration with his friend F. Sonik. The duo’s first major success was winning VONYC remix competition with a remix of Valentino Kanzyani’s Nueva York, which is also a part of Carl Cox & friends at Space Ibiza 2008 compilation.
He started the 2009 with Umek's nomination as best producer of the 2008. But he is determined to accomplish even more. ‘You’ll hear a lot about me in the future,’ he promises.

 M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Aneuria"- M.U.M- Episode 72
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




ANEURIA (Jesus Loved You)

Aneuria is a core member of Jesus Loved You collective, household name on leading labels, clubs and festivals in the Central Europe and Western Balkans and trusty studio sidekick of Ian F and Tomy DeClerque. Lately he is redefining his artistic expression, fusing house roots, Balkan ethno and sounds of nature with techno patterns, taking his productions towards warmer, organic spheres. This refreshment was in sync with the new Jesus Loved You music vision and partly influenced by long studio sessions with Valentino Kanzyani.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Aneuria is still quite a fresh name on the scene. His earlier deejay performances were all about house but he soon realized that his interests grow deeper in experimental, underground, and not only electronic sounds. One of the first artists that noticed his talent and endless passion for music was his countryman and one of the original techno pioneers DJ Veztax. Without prejudice he backed him up and invited him to join the Interparty crew. Since then he became regular in the clubs and at the festivals in the Western Balkans and Central Europe.

In the early 00’s Aneuria and his then performing and producing partner Mexx founded a Muzika-Eclectica platform. It was designed to spread their sound trough the clubland. Their combos reflected minimalistic approach to groovy techno and were crowned with the success of Los tres puentes, a great summer record that touched the souls and feet of revelers all over the world. Responses from deejays around the globe were excellent and gave him motivation for further work. In that time he also collaborated with Serbian colleague Dejan Milicevic who taught him a lot about music production and still supports him as member of Recon Warriors crew.

Parting with Mexx as a regular combo few years ago, Aneuria focused on defining his own production and deejay style. He builds his sets mostly on repetitive loops, percussions and groove, thus creating tension on the dance floor, driving crowd into frenzy that always ends with some kind of surprise. That allows him to play with audience’s feelings and to build his own story, which is the essence of him as an artist.

After hooking up with creative soul mates Ian F and Tomy Declerque it didn’t take long ‘till he got in touch with their friend Valentino Kanzyani, too. In the early 2008 he joined the Jesus Loved You collective as independent artist, frequently collaborating with Ian and Tomy. Their most successful joint venture so far was Tommy Joy EP. Aneuria’s own Buenoliter was included on Simplicity vol. 1 compilation and he recorded series of remixes for artists such as Umek, Angel Anx, Antoine Caesar, Danilo Tomic and Glorio Veztacci.

Lately he is redefining his artist expression, fusing house roots, Balkan ethno and sounds of nature with techno patterns, taking his sound towards warmer, organic spheres. This refreshment was in sync with the new Jesus Loved You music vision and partly influenced by long studio sessions with Valentino and Ian. The fruits of their labor will be presented in the following months as some of the forthcoming JLY releases. While Aneuria’s next solo releases will be brought to you on labels such as Glorio Music, Recoon Light (Ljubiana EP) and Jesus Loved You (Baronga EP).

M.U.M & Wiked Group  proudly presents "Miami Sessions with SanedracHunter"- M.U.M- Episode 71
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement







Onset 1982, Franccesco Cardenas grew up in Miami Florida constantly submersed in the best of Electronic music. With Nicaraguan roots and musical influences spreading from John Lennon to John Digweed, Franccesco began mixing things up in year 2000 and has been on an endless incline ever since. He has literally covered every corner of Florida from Jacksonville to Tallahassee, Gainesville to Miami, and every space in between.
However for Franccesco it's not simply about the performance but more intrinsically about how the music plays a part in life and experience. His desire to more deeply understand the qualities of sound led him through his engineering foothold at SAE in 2004. Even beyond the studio he's constantly exposing himself to new sounds, multiple genres, events, venues, sights, tastes, anything and everything plays part to influence the musical soul.
Then comes the second half, born and raised in Central Florida Luke Hunter first found his love for electronic music amongst the late 90's rave scene streaming through the state. With a passion for good music Luke set forth at an early age to pursue the dynamics of audio and quality sound. Rising through the ranks of technician to audio engineer and producer, Luke soon completed his bachelors in productions from the University of Florida in 2005. After Gainesville's music scene tapered off shortly after 2001 Luke found himself searching to reconnect and heading south to the heart of WMC territory in Miami Florida.
Luke setup shop reassembling his production studio and began his journey rising in the ranks of the Miami music scene. Each and every venue, show and event is taken as a complete experience into sound that maintains the high standard of production and discerning ear that first lead Luke to his love of music.
Years of music flow between these two artists but the real synergy takes place when these great minds come together behind the decks or in the studio. Collaboratively Franccesco Cardenas and Luke Hunter fuse as one under the title SanedracHunter and the two have been quickly gaining ground in the Miami scene. Appearances on WRGP FM and WVUM FM in addition to guest spots on Proton Radio have sent the duos music across the airwaves and even landed them in DJ booths moving south Florida dance floors in addition to a WMC and Ultra Music Festival 2009 appearance. This month plays host to a special exclusive mix for the Miami Underground Movement.

The Artists will be in Miami WMC 09 @ Doraku Lounge March 26-South Beach-Come and Play Party by Wiked Productions.

Special Thanks To Franccesco & Luke.

M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Ian F"- M.U.M- Episode 70
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement









IAN F. 
(Jesus Loved You)

After a decade of successful sound blending Ian F. maintains the status of one of the most fresh-sounding deejays around. Being introduced to the art of music improvisation at an early age and heavily indulging on alternative art as a teenager, he continued to nurse this passion even more after becoming a deejay. Ian F is a member of the Jesus Loved You family, co-founder of Flow Management agency and a long time resident deejay of Ambasadi Gavioli, one of the hottest super clubs in the Mediterranean. He forefronts the new generation of promising young artists that are redefining famous Slovenian techno sound and are heavily supported by artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani. Currently Ian F. spends most of the off-deck time producing music and developing his Flux:ology, which combines elements of different art expressions. After a series of releases and remixes on selected labels in Europe, Asia and USA (Jesus Loved You, Advanced, Pure Substance, Traffica, Mashtronic, Decoded, Vezotonik, Dig:Atel …), he’s dedicated to spread his eclectic art of noise even further in the forthcoming months.
His production was supported by artists such Umek, Valentino Kanzyani, James Zabiela, Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, D Ramirez, Misjah, Wally Lopez, Flash Brothers, Andy Moor, Andrea Ferlin, Nick Muir, Wehbba, Marko Nastic,  …

= = = = = = = = = =

CHALLENGES: Productions. Live Act. New expressions.
Being obsessed with searching for some fresh stuff all the time, the life of producer is a constant battle for Ian F: “Currently I spend most of the off-deck time developing my own sound under the guidance of my studio guru Tomy DeClerque." Ian F’s recent production Subconscious was picked up by local Apple distributor for a TV commercial and can be heard on the MTV. Some other releases on Tested/Agent Funk, Mashtronic rec., Jesus Loved You (Valentino Kanzyani) and Traffica (Marko Nastić) are scheduled and the preliminary arrangements with some UK and Germany based labels were already struck. “Another intriguing project is Flux, for which I am joining forces with Tomy DeClerque, KayKay and Dave Morgan. Flux is a unique live act, a mixture of live music performance and electronic live act with the addition of other art expressions. It’s very alive. The structure and expression of this project varies all the time as it is under constant development. We’ve already performed in Gavioli and at one open-air party, but a lot of work still has to be put into this project.”

Performing at the parties is just one side of Ian F as a musician. He indulges on combining his passion for music with other art expressions on regular basis. He's no stranger to performing at art and fashion exhibitions, poetry recitals, teaming up with pop artists and rock bands or developing soundtrack for an on-line art gallery. He even produced music and performed with a contemporary dance company at selected venues, including premiere at the 7th Annual Gala at the national theatre, which was broadcasted live on the Slovenian national television.


REFERENCES: Performances. Releases. Collaborations.
Ian F is established artist in the region, performing in Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina on the regular basis. His poison is techno & tech-house with expressive warm harmonies and little touches of other genres. As a long running resident of some of the top clubs and events in the north Adriatic region he already performed alongside most of the top techno artists as well as the biggest names in the industry such as Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Derrick May, Tiësto, Steve Lawler, Sasha, John Digweed if we name just a few. He's a resident deejay of Ambasada Gavioli, Fetch the Vibe events and official ambassador of Slovenian Haineken Music events.

Ian F's productions were so far spun and included on track lists and charts by Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, Flash Brothers, Andy Moor, Marko Nastić, Umek, Valentino Kanzyani and other established deejays. His artist production and remixes were released on Slovenian labels such as F-Recordings, Annunaki, Vezotonik and Vezotonik LTD, Malaysia based Pure Substance and Red Flux Music, Atel - DigAtel (USA), Mashtronic rec. from Germany, Advanced rec. (UK) and Croatian Decoded and Decoded Mini.

As a member of SDJF initiative Ian helps develop local club infrastructure and platforms to support young artists on their first steps. Another two promising young artists Andrew Technique and F.Sonik are members of Flow Management agency. Currently he’s also spending a lot of time in and out of the studio with a deejay & producer Aneuria.

M.U.M proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Alex Bau"- M.U.M Episode 69
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





What's your credo?

Where are not many dj's of this type - dj's who believed in techno from the first minute, dj's who have experienced techno from the very beginning, dj's who have made techno their own thing, dj's who have created their own unique styles or even more - who have developed one over the years and who's name's are synonymous with that specific sound. alex bau is one of those dj's. at the same time, however, there are some slight differences with this guy. why focus on just one style of music? why only minimal sounds? why only techno? why, if you could have a well orchestrated combination of both?

Is it related to the fact that for alex bau, there was once a time before techno? with thousands of records in a collection that spans through many different types, styles and genres of music, certainly there have been many individual records which have left their own, indelible marks. there's no doubt about that! for instance, alex still does depeche mode nights from time to time, just for fun. but his activities with techno don't suffer at all from that, not in the least! with his 5+ hour sets at his first resident club in his southeast bavarian home area, the "libella", where dj hell also started his career back in the 80's, he achieved the reputation as someone who was totally aware of what he was doing, totally dedicated to it, but also someone who was totally infatuated with it. he hosted his own radio show for over 2 years on a local radio station, still the only techno show in the area. however, after countless gigs at the local clubs the time was deemed to be right to prove that he was also able to play at other venues around the globe. while collaborating with his friend sven dedek, whose productions were mainly released under the moniker's "basic implant" or "electric envoy" on labels lsuch as "fine audio recordings" from chris liebing, their tracks hit the technofloors in a very impressive way. during that time he was also able to collect international experiences behind the decks as sven played live. releases like the "phase edit ep", a highly acclaimed and well sold rework of some nitzer ebb ebm classics, or their work for dave angel's "rotation", justin berkovi's "predicaments" or pascal feos' "pv-records" enabled them to reach a much larger audience. finally, after numerous releases for different labels beside his own "toneman", alex released his debut-album "connected" in late 2004. "connected" immediately drew the attention of many high class dj's such as chris liebing, pascal feos and good groove, just to name a few. the fact that these artists, all of whom were working with different styles, grabbed the tracks from "connected", shows that the name of the album couldn't have been chosen any better.

After starting his own label (toneman) back in 2000, alex also started to work on his solo productions for labels such as chris liebing's "clr" or the montreal based label, "default recordings". montreal can be seen as kind of a gauge of alex's dj activities! within 3 years he was booked in montreal four times and his set from the legendary night at aria from january 2006 was even released as a mix-cd, "live at aria / montreal" so that alex came back months later to perform for the release party, once again a night to remember for the montreal techno movement. at this point in time alex was already booked as the headliner and it was reported by numerous emails and guest book entries that it was hardly a mistake to do so

but it's not only montreal where alex is being booked again and again; there are many other places, which is a good indicator that he seems to be a guy who understands what to do when standing in front of a crowd, someone who is always trying to bring the party to the max. clubs like frankfurt's "u60311", munich's "electric delicate", würzburg's "airport", or the legendary "tresor" in berlin are not only the trademarks of german techno club-culture, they can also be found on alex's gig list. brazil, usa, canada, poland, croatia, serbia, holland or the closer austria and switzerland are some of the tour stops on alex's calender, and no matter where, all over the places people can hear and feel how interesting, versatile and powerful techno can be if you understand how to combine minimal and straight techno as a constant up and down. everything is completely under control while the party is going wild, and that is what alex always goes for.

The fact that alex has become an official artist on the highly acclaimed label "zenit", that he has been the platform for acts like marco carola, adam beyer, the advent, gaetano parisio and many more, is the logical consequence of years of dedicated, hard work in good, high quality techno. techno in its purest form, just as described above, is the goal for alex - whether or not it involves playing or producing. on his current album "credo", minimal tunes go together with peaktime slammers in a way that appears obvious and logical. techno can do a lot, if you let it do so. that's the credo - his credo!

Special Thanks to Alex Bau...

M.U.M & 1605 Session proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Umek"- M.U.M- Episode 67
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement







DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

 M.U.M & Fade Records proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Chris Fortier Live @ Crobar Buenos Aires Part 3"- M.U.M- Episode 65
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




THE FADE STORY…

FADE was formed in the summer of 1993 when Neil Kolo, a young studio engineer, introduced himself to Chris Fortier, a young resident DJ at the infamous "Marz" club in Cocoa Beach, FL, and passed on a tape of some of the material he had been working on. Chris, very enthused by what he had heard, expressed his interest in the idea of working together and learning about how to produce tracks of his own like the ones he had been playing up and down the East Coast of America.

The two instantly clicked and a friendship was formed. Two years later, the pair released their first record titled "...For All The People". They Floated a few one-sided promos out to gauge reaction. Meanwhile, a second track was completed, "All I Got". The two tracks were then combined as a double A-sided release, which was the first release on FADE Records, the label that Chris owns and operates. "All I Got" caught the attention of UK duo Chris & James, who helped it get signed to Mushroom Records where James was working as an A & R representative.

In August of 1995, Fade released two new singles, "So Good" and "Separation". The Two Tracks received massive support from some of the biggest DJs around including their biggest inspiration, SASHA. The records became underground hits and quickly sold out. Soon after, Glasgow’s Limbo Records signed the duo for a multi-album record deal in February 1996.

This success opened the door for the boys to move into the realm of remixing. First, they did remixes for friends John Debo and DJ Icey. This gave them more exposure and experience and led to remixes for Stress records and Sony’s S3 label.

The Summer of 1996 brought new challenges. Now they were going to get a chance to work on more vocal oriented songs. One such song was Sam Mollison’s "Cry". When finished, the "Cry" remix set a new standard for Fade and the quality of tracks they could produce. Dave Seaman heard "Cry" and quickly added it to his Essential Mix for England’s Radio 1 FM and his Renaissance Volume 4 mix compilation on Network Records.

With this surge of notoriety, DMC’s Guy Ornadel contacted Chris & Neil to remix Future Force’s "What You Want" for DMC’s Remix Culture. Rising to another level, Fade delivered one of the progressive anthems of 1996 winning Remix and Remixer of the Year in Australia. This gave way to the chance to remix Marathon’s "Movin" and Viola Wills "It’s My Pleasure", two of the guys all time favorite tracks, as well as getting the chance to remix another big influence, BT, for his song "Quark".

1997 saw the boys getting attention from major labels for remixes, as well as writing and producing their own more vocal based material under the guises of Fade and Nutribe. They released their first vocal track with singer Dauby Talles called "No Resolve". This was another pinnacle in their rising careers. "No Resolve" saw heavy play from John Digweed on the Northern Exposure 2 Tour, climbed as high as #12 in the Cool Cuts Chart and has become a Florida club anthem.

1998 saw Chris and Neil further expanding their horizons by doing remix work for more Indie style bands and artists like Sarah McLachlan and Delerium. The Delerium which features Sarah McLachlan on vocals and has been tearing up clubland since the first time heard at Renaissance in Ibiza when John Digweed dropped it at the closing party. Sasha quickly rang up for a copy and the tune soon became an anthem for the pair at every gig including Twilo. It even had Sasha opening and closing his sets with it at Cream and Tyrant. With the rest of clubland searching for it, Delerium debuted and #5 in MixMag Update’s Buzz Chart and appeared on the Northern Exposure 3 CD. This was truly a high point for Chris and Neil in their ever rising careers. 1998 also saw the release of "Sanctuaries" The Fade Records Collection. a collection of work including a number of unreleased remixes and original productions. The CD was released in conjunction with Universal Music.

Throughout ’99 and 2000, the duo worked on their debut artist album and saw the release of their "Silence" remix released in Australia. The record was an instant hit and went to #6 in the National chart and rose to Platinum status (70, 000 units sold) in Australia alone. It also went to #1 in Holland, Belgium and Ireland, with total sales over One Million Units. Also completed was another mixed CD, mixed as Fade, called "Anthems of Progressive House: Limbo Records" and was released in November 2000. Chris made the move to New York City where he now calls home.

During 2001 the pair continued their prolific remix work for new artists Andy Hunter, Lunik (Delerium) and Balligomingo. They have also produced tracks and remixes for established artists like Tiesto and Sarah McLachlan again. For the past 6 years, both Neil and Chris have been concentrating on solo work. One day they may reunite, but only time will tell.

About Fade Records:

Fade Records was created out of necessity in 1993. At the helm is American DJ Chris Fortier. Chris and studio partner, Neil Kolo, needed an outlet to release the tracks they were producing together. With not many options in the States, it seemed obvious to start a label and create the opportunities themselves. The first release was in 1994 called "...For All the People". This track gave them a voice and platform for the future productions. The next three tracks, "All I Got", "Separation" and "So Good" were more highly praised and received heavy support from the biggest DJs out there, including Sasha, John Digweed and Dave Seaman. Equal support came from the USA from Kimball Collins, DJ Icey and John Debo as well as the brand new Mixmag USA (which eventually would be known as Mixer). This great support put the duo on the map and started every label in the UK demanding their talents for remix duties. After several years of building their profile through remixes and the odd single, Chris wanted to re-launch the label in the hopes to help discover and cultivate new talent from America. Steve Porter was the man for this job as Chris discovered him at age 17. With the productions of Steve Porter and others like Derek Howell, Royal Sapien, Funk Harmony Park & Tonepushers, the label is as strong as ever and having great success worldwide.

M.U.M & Fade Records proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Chris Fortier Live @ Crobar Buenos Aires"- M.U.M- Episode 63


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



While many people may claim to know Chris’ sound, with their focus on continually labeling him one thing or another, Chris is equally as focused on his efforts to push back the musical boundaries. It is testament to the man that he continues to develop his sound and musical direction, after all, as the man says himself “I just like to play good underground music, I don’t limit myself.”

It is artists such as Chris Fortier who are inextricably linked to the underground dance music scene that are the genuinely pushing the sound forward. Chris’ determination to continue to push the envelope can be seen in all aspects of his career. Proof of this can be found on his recent triple CD compilation Balance and his recent solo production under the 40oz moniker and his stellar debut artist album As Long As The Moment Exits.

The Balance CD genuinely offers something exciting and underground to the current stale compilation market. Boasting tracks from across the musical spectrum like David Gilmore Girls, Global Communication and Floppy Sounds through to Slam, Matthew Jonson, Rabbit in the Moon and Bent. It is little wonder the CD was name checked for compilation of the year by numerous international press publications.

Under his 40oz production guise Chris has released the several EPs that musically could fit comfortably on labels such as Cocoon, Kompakt or Get Physical. Further remixes of Alexi Delano, Joshua Collins, Lee Burridge, Freaky Chakra and John Selway show Chris’ genre defying sound at it’s underground best. Taking this a step further in 2007, his debut artist album was released to countless plaudits and impeccable praise. Not satisfied with status quo, look for the boundaries to continue to be pressed and pushed with each coming musical excursion.

With a DJ career spanning 15 plus years, he has continually been a crowd favourite, confirmed by his very first residency at the legendary “Aahz” in Orlando through to more recent residencies at The Cross in London and at Twilo in New York. Since a debut European tour in 1997, Chris has gone on to consistently tour the globe behind numerous singles, remixes and no less than 9 mix albums. You can catch him as easily in Tokyo as in Buenos Aires and all points in between on any given weekend.

To those that know Fortier’s history, they know to expect plenty more to come, for those that are just getting initiated, Welcome!

Special Thanks to Mr Chris Fortier.

M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Andrew Technique"- M.U.M- Episode 62
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


ANDREW TECHNIQUE - biography

Be Ray Ya Book Hey, Can't Play the Piano, Luna Park and Fresh are just some productions which recently invested Andrew Technique as one of the hottest young electronic artists in the region. And it's not a small deal if we take in account he's determined to challenge the infamous Slovenian techno heritage and take it to the whole new level. When he's not abusing the decks and comps on his own, Andrew, a protégé of Flow Management and dedicated member of SDJF initiative, performs as a member of Foreplay!, Parallel Fusion (live) and R&A projects. Well, he sure came a long way so far. Especially if we bear in mind he grew up on metal guitar reefs.

"It’s true. I'm an art junkie,” admits Andrew. “When I was a kid people thought I’d become a successful painter, actor, singer or whatever. But it was the music that attracted me the most for as long as I can remember. In business I believe in professionalism and dedication, but when it comes to producing and performing music I indulge in being lead by my feelings. And I’m very emotional. I can get goose bumps or even a tear in my eye listening to some great piece of music. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I do listen to the comments given by my friends and people that I personally believe they are credible critics. I respect good-intended critic, but I got where I am today mostly because I decided so and worked hard to reach some of my personal goals,” summarizes his career Andrej Šarkanj aka Andrew Technique.

Although as a master of his own destiny he almost abandoned his dream not so far ago. “Let’s just say I came to the major life-crossroad and had to decide what I wanted to do with life: I could have ended my music career right there and then or choose to channel all my free-time and energy into production and promotion of my own vision of dance music. It never was, and still isn’t, all roses. But now, that I finally get the positive feedback from the right people I’m happy I decided not to quit," explains Andrew with a tiny sparkle of satisfaction in his eyes. He made some big steps in 2007: he produced bunch of great fresh sounding tunes, his records are now being regularly played by the top deejays such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani, some of his tracks were already broadcasted on BBC Radio 1 … But, regarding the strong competition, Andrew is aware that just a few of good releases will not bring him much.  So he doesn’t rest on early successes: "Dedication, sustain quality of releases and a bit of luck are key elements on which I build my future as an artist.”

It’s been more than a decade since he developed a passion for 4x4 beats. “I used to be into guitar music. I learned to play the piano, I joined the garage band as a teenager and I grew up on hard rock and metal,” smiles Andrew on not so distant memories. “During the high school period I came in touch with other genres, widened my musical spectrum and finally turned in totally different direction. I started listening to electronic stuff, learned how the music is selected, performed and produced and in a few years established myself as a tech-house deejay." Although some could label his sound more like unique mixture of minimal, electro and progressive elements. "We leave in a time of genre blending, so it’s hard to label one’s sound, anyway,” admits Andrew. "But those who follow my work do know I’ve always had a strong passion for organic African rhythms."

And how did he get his name? “Andrew was an obvious choice, just a translation of my civilian name. And I choose Technique since I was always very handy with stuff, I still work in a computer shop, MacGyver is a big hero of mine and the name also reflects what I do as an artist.” And the influences: "I listen to a lot of music and I got inspired by a lot of great artists along the way. I try to find something special in every piece of music and all musicians are mentors to me in a way. But the most important influence for me as an artist was and in a way still is our local super club Ambasada Gavioli. It was the place where I was introduced to electronic culture and where I experienced some great performances of leading global deejays.”

Andrew is also known as a “very friendly artist”. He's a member of SDJF initiative that is dedicated to constant development of the local electronic club scene and supporting young artists. And when he's not performing on his own, he abuses decks and comps as a member of Foreplay!, R&S and Parallel Fusion (live) projects: "There were also some others, but this things come and go and only the best stay. The basic idea behind collaborations is to get together with other artists, develop and share ideas or blend genres. And it's always more fun producing and performing music with other people than on your own."

As a producer he gets all the help he needs from his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. He established his name as part of Tomy or Zox combo on the house scene back in the 90's and is now successfully running his own studio that is second home to some of the hottest young producers in the region. Tomy and Andrew debuted on Kanzyani's Jesus Loved You label with the Obala EP in late 2007. Tomy also remixed Fresh which was included in Umek's Essential Mix and released on Circle Records: "Studio is my favorite place for spending free time. I go there most of the days and I try to channel my ideas, thoughts, wishes and feelings into the music." And since he's very passionate guy, there's a truckload of new records with Andrew's name on it planned for release in forthcoming months. "I'm already well established artist in the region, so now I'd like to spread my sound trough the rest of the Europe and elsewhere. There are many challenges I'd like to take, but the ultimate would be performing on another planet. I'm not kidding. I believe this is something I could achieve as an artist, so don't be surprised if you get a postcard from Mars or Venus someday."

M.U.M & Flow Management proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Tomy DeClerque"- M.U.M- Episode 60
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


Tomy DeClerque Bio:

A member of the new generation of Slovenian deejays, Tomy De Clerque grew up in an environment full of promising development in the sphere of electronic dance music.
 In front of his eyes the local scene has been turning into a globally acknowledged style of techno music in the hands of artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani.
 A natural choice for a guy with talent and ambition was to jump the train – and Tommy DeClerque has road it ever since.

Performing as a deejay since he turned seventeen Tomy DeClerque soon realised that making his own production was essential if he wanted his carrier to really take off. He hooked up with his friend Zox to form the Tomy or Zox duo, and their hard work paid off as their My Desire single received some favourable feedback in Spain, Russia and Mexico.

However, it was the Music Makes Me Happy hit single that caught the attention of top artists being remixed by the likes of Mainframe and ATCF, and released on several prestigious compilations, such as Ministry Of Sound, DJ Awards at Pacha Ibiza and Blanco Y Negro Mix. ‘The greatest satisfaction, though, – Tomy says – was when we got set as Essential new tune of the week on Pete Tong’s celebrated Essential selection radio show.’

After parting ways with Fox, Tomy felt that it was time to take a break from a demanding life of producer and performer, before he went on to start his solo career. Searching for genuine underground sound that could revive the authentic feeling of electronic dance music he experienced in his youth Tomy turned to Valentino Kanzyani’s Jesus Loved You label releasing a much praised I Don’t Know. Driven by his passion for teamwork, a lot of his studio work is done in collaboration with his friend F. Sonik.

The duo’s first major success was winning VONYC remix competition with a remix of Valentino Kanzyani’s Nueva York, which is also a part of Carl Cox & friends at Space Ibiza 2008 compilation.
As a young player, Tomy DeClerque has accomplished a lot. But he is determined to accomplish even more. ‘You’ll hear a lot about me in the future,’ he promises.

His tracks appear on Intec, Vandit, Teggno, Sound of Acapulco, Rawthentic, Definition, Tech Head, and soon on System Recordings. Starting in 2006, Carl Cox took notice with a track “ETC” in which Cox later signed to his “Carl Cox Space Ibiza CD”. Lance Blaise, under the moniker of Tattoo Detectives followed up that single with his club anthem “Il Salto Fuori”. This track gained massive support by the likes of Paul Van Dyk & Carl Cox to name a few. Cox told Resident Advisor that, "This record is storming" and "Its pumping techno in its fury." Carl even selected it as one of his best tracks for 2006. Later, PVD also commented on his Vonyc show saying “The Ibiza season in 2008 has been inspired by ‘Il Salto Fuori,’ and its all about ‘this dj is f@ckin crazy’ everyone” which is the lyrical quote that Lance Blaise sings on “Il Salto Fuori”. Another single Lance produced under Tattoo Detectives, "She Bleeps N' Bloops", got some notable recognition as it made headlines with URB magazine, and became a top seller on the internet’s most prominent download music store, Beatport. This was just part of his success on Beatport as he had a top selling remix in early 2007 as well with the remix he did of 'Yeehaw Junction' under his other moniler, Tacopimp. Lance’s “Dirty Volume" also gained support, as a regular in Coxy's playlist, and it as also signed to Adam Sheridan's latest CD compilation on Goodgrief.

In 2008, Lance Blaise creeped his freaky minimal techno sound into Beatport's Top 100 breaking into the 30 slot and holding steady for 3 weeks with the release of "Snapback." Again in October of 2008 Lance's remix of Carlo Lio's "Is That So" also broke into the Top 100 of Beatport.

In 2009 Lance Blaise will be releasing numerous EPs and remixes on his own label, Teggno Records, as well as on other well known labels. Lance has already set a touring schedule in Latin America, and also plans on touring in Europe, USA, as well as a summer trip to Ibiza. With proven support from big names like Carl Cox, Paul van Dyk, and many other industry leaders 2009 will be another year where Lance Blaise aka Tattoo Detectives will grow into a dancefloor name.

Special Thanks to Lance Blaise

HEARTTHROB Biography
 
Currently one of the brightest stars in the Minus firmament, Heartthrob aka Jesse Siminski
has arrived on the scene with a fresh new take on the minimal sound. It’s not just his ear for a
killer riff that makes him such an exciting prospect it’s also his natural ability to convey a sense of
drama and humour through his music. There’s an infectious energy in his sound that rubs off on
his audiences but it can also be heard in his musical collaborations. Heartthrob brings something
new to the table - be it quirky melodic hooks or twisted vocals - that manages to inspire those
around him to even greater heights.  
 
Growing up in the remote and rural town of Marquette, Michigan, situated about 6 hours North of
Detroit, music was a vital part of his upbringing. Dad played guitar in a number of bands that
regularly practiced at their house and this healthy diet of rock, funk and reggae together with his
older sister‘s obsession with Prince, shaped his appreciation of dance music from an early age.
Erotic City, Laid Back’s ‘White Horse’ and Kraftwerk‘s ‘Tour de France’ are still huge influences
from that time. Jesse discovered techno music around 1996 through a magazine called
‘Massive’ that covered the new rave culture exploding in the Midwest. Plastikman’s ‘Gak’ was
one track in particular that opened his eyes and motivated him to visit his first Rave. Needless to
say, he was totally hooked!  He immediately bought turntables and started looking for
synthesizers to make music, starting out with some retro 70’s gear handed down from his father.
 
Next to studying art and painting, music rapidly became his true passion although it was never
something he seriously considered as a career option. All that was to change when he hooked
up with Magda in New York in 1999 and was immediately taken by her warm nature and
fantastic musical sense. She and Troy Pierce had started working on music and introduced
him to Ableton Live. Shortly after, Richie Hawtin moved into the same building as them, it was
a very natural situation during which this dedicated band of producers and djs began laying
foundations for the future. Since then the learning curve has been steep. Jesse swapped New
York for Paris in 2005 to focus his full attention on production and performance and by his own
admission it’s been an incredible experience. Being invited to use Richie Hawtin’s studio and
remixing Depeche Mode’s  ‘Personal Jesus’ are two major moments that particularly stand
out for him since arriving in Europe however ‘Baby Kate’, the memorable opening to 2006’s
min2MAX compilation is the track that has come to define his sound.  
 
Heartthrob describes his approach to music as “a messy ‘stream of consciousness’ daydream”.
The challenge for him is to make something unique and personal that speaks for itself, regardless
of whether it stays true to form or not. The traditional functionality of Techno music must always
be present but for Jesse it’s all about taking risks and trusting his instincts, which is why his own
particular style is so varied, covering a whole lot more than just glitches, bleeps and sound
effects.  
 
Melody plays a significant roll in his work, often providing the focal point around which the rest of
the track orbits. There is also an inherent darkness to his music but just as it’s always darkest
before the dawn, there’s often an uplifting, cathartic side to it that celebrates the unified spirit and
generates such a positive vibe on the dancefloor. Music also allows him to document his
experiences and with the cast of characters that surround him, inspiration is never far away.  
With tongue firmly fixed in cheek, he often creates fantasy personas that get documented
through vocals or song titles, like a secret tribute and with such an impressive collection of
releases and remixes already to his name (both as Heartthrob and alter ego Vivienne
Projects), it can only be a matter of time before the tributes start flowing back the other way.

TROY PIERCE Biography
 
Growing up in the quiet farm town of Muncie, Indiana four hours drive from Chicago and
Detroit, it was hard to ignore the rich sounds emanating from these House and Techno
strongholds. Troy was among the first to pick up on DJs like Derrick Carter, Jeff Mills
and Richie Hawtin and was always out and about at parties in Detroit, Ohio and across
the Midwest. Strangely enough though, he never thought about picking up a pair of
headphones himself, preferring to leave the DJ duties to his friends. This way he could
fully immerse himself in the music, especially the experimental ambient tones of the after
hour chill outs.  
 
This all changed in 1994. He moved to New York to study photography and like every
student worth their salt, blew the remainder of his cash on a pair of turntables. He’d
been toying with the idea for a while and as luck would have it his flatmate was also the
manager of Temple Records so there was an endless supply of quality tunes on hand
from labels like Perlon to satisfy his growing vinyl addiction.  
 
Troy eventually hooked up with Magda at the Detroit Music Festival in 2001, who in turn
introduced him to Mark Houle six months later. An immediate chemistry developed
between the three of them and although Magda was now in Berlin, Mark in Windsor
and Troy in New York they started swapping music files over the net. By the time the
Run Stop Restore project finally crystallised into their debut release in early 2003, Troy
had already moved to Berlin. It was a big decision to leave but somehow New York no
longer offered up-and-coming musicians the same freedom of expression it used to,
while Germany and Berlin in particular was setting new standards in minimal electronic
music production.  
 
Since touching down in December 2002, he’s been letting his music do the talking. As
a relative unknown, it’s never easy staking a claim in a new city, especially one with
such a rich musical heritage but sure enough, through a string of successful gigs and a
mixture of impressive releases on Minus (Run and Slacknoise), Underline (Louderbach)
and Mo’s Ferry Productions, Troy has been attracting the right kind of attention and is
now a regular performer on the European circuit.
 
2005 was the year when it all came good. The release of the Minimise to Maximise
compilation and the accompanying tour left a lasting impression on clubbers at such
centres of excellence as Robert Johnson in Offenbach and the Paradiso in Amsterdam
but perhaps the real turning point came in August at pop.com. All those endless nights
on the road and solitary days in the studio came together in one heart stopping set at
the Watergate club. Taking the game to an expectant crowd including fellow producers
and industry types, his uncompromising mix of minimal house and down beat, funked
up techno announced, in no uncertain terms, that he was here for the long haul.
As a DJ, attempts to categorise his style pose more questions than they answer.
Minimalism in its purest form is a tag he more freely associates with labels like
Consumed - ‘super sparse, difficult and totally out there’. Troy on the other hand, has
developed a dance floor friendly hybrid sound that takes the best from the ‘little
movements and micro trends’ that constantly spring up, helping electronic music to
evolve. It retains the mechanical, futuristic sounds of techno but is slower and less
abrasive allowing him to work between the lines, exploit the space between the beats
and push out into the third dimension that epitomises the Minus sound. 
 
Like his label mates, Troy is a strong advocate of cutting edge technology like Ableton
Live, Final Scratch and sample tools like Cyloop. The ability to shift between these
sound sources offers him unparalleled flexibility as a DJ but the benefits don’t just stop
there. He recalls road testing a new track one night in Berlin, getting the thumbs up
from the rest of crew but then receiving puzzled calls the next day because the track
didn’t sound quite the same – he was of course looping in samples ‘on the fly’ and it
was this spontaneous improvisation that really set the dancefloor alight. Needless to say
these overdubs found their way into the final mix.
 
From a production point of view his tracks normally derive from experimenting with his
Machine Drum or expanding outwards from the dark, atmospheric vocal elements that
play a pivotal role in many of his productions. Inspiration often comes through choice
regarding the effects he uses, rejecting standard, tried and tested settings in favour of
unique percussive elements designed to challenge and intrigue. The result is a montage
of scratchy subliminal textures and grinding beats. It’s edgy stuff driven by dark funky
bass riffs that get right under the skin, the perfect tonic for any after hour as sleep
deprivation starts playing tricks with the mind.
 
As it stands, 2006 promises to be an even busier year than 2005. Having provided the
backbone of their releases so far, Troy will wrap up his work for UK label Underline with
the eagerly anticipated Louderbach LP. Alongside this, his growing status as a remixer
(check out his version of Ellen Allien’s Your Body is My Body) will see him reworking the
likes of Lawrence and Donnacha Costello. There’s also another Run EP in the pipeline
but maybe the most interesting development is the conception of a new label - Items
and Things - together with Magda and Marc Houle which should take flight in the
spring. 
 
If that’s not enough, there’s a full-on, five week Minus tour of the US on the horizon.
Richie, Magda, Marc and Troy will set off in May (complete with monster tour bus) for
what can only be described as a next generation magical mystery tour during which
they’ll take in 25 cities. They probably won’t be stopping in Muncie but it’s a sign of just
how much his stock has risen over the past couple of years and confirmation that a
solid work ethic, positive thinking and a total dedication to the cause always bears fruit
in the end.

M.U.M & Minus proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Paco Osuna"- M.U.M- Episode 54
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement




PACO OSUNA was born in Barcelona. His passion for music started out
when he was very young, at the tender age of 14 he was part of a regular
crowd at Studio 54, where the most charismatic dj, Raul Orellana, was
spinning Acid House, marking Paco in the way of understanding djing. 
 
In '94 Paco moved to Valencia where he had his first contact with the decks
as a hobby. In '95 Paco made his first dj set as a professional at the ACTV
club, where he gained a year residency. After that, he started playing in
many different clubs including Heaven and Universal. 
 
In the meanwhile he worked in a record shop, where he got access to a
recording studio in which he produced three singles for the label Lucas
Records. In '99 he got a residency at Amnesia in Ibiza. There he had the
brilliant opportunity to be line up with the biggest djs and could learn the
different styles looking to build his own. Amnesia was also the place where
Paco got in touch with the person who most influenced his future as much
personally as professionally, Sven Väth, who soon discovered Paco to be
very talented and introduced him in his Cocoon Booking agency. Paco was
the frist Spanish dj to play for this prestigious agency. 
 
In 2001 Paco decided to leave house music moving closer to Techno. From
then on Paco´s career has gotten better and better, leading him to the best
clubs and festivals in the world and giving him a 'seat' in the techno scene.

MIKE SHANNON BIOGRAPHY 
 
It’s been 10 years since Mike Shannon started making a name for himself on the international techno
scene as a DJ, producer and label owner. Now, having relocated to Berlin from Valencia via Montreal in
2007 he’s about to crown his first decade of active service with Memory Tree, his third full length to date,
and his debut for another notable Canadian export - Richie Hawtin’s Plus 8 Records. Over the years,
Mike has well proven that it’s not just his music that makes him such a valuable asset to the techno
community, it’s his total dedication to the cause. Whether finding him standing behind a record shop
counter or searching out new talent for his labels, it’s always been about bringing people together and
investing in the future of the scene. 
 
Mike first got the vinyl bug at the tender age of 12, buying house and techno tunes at Play de Record in
Toronto and by 15 his turntable skills were already landing him gigs at local underground parties and clubs.
From then on, Mike’s musical world expanded rapidly thanks in no small part to Detroit’s influential WJLB
radio station which turned him on to U.R., Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson - influences that still play a big
role in his approach to music today. To satisfy his appetite for all things Techno, he was soon managing the
orders at Speed Records in his hometown of Kitchener, Ontario where he continued his education;
importing cutting edge sounds from across Europe.
 
Throughout that time, Mike was out DJing and clubbing from Detroit to Toronto, making connections and
building up a solid network of producers and artists, which led to the inevitable formation of his own label
Cynosure in 1999. A couple of years later, he teamed up with Jeff Milligan on the more experimental
Revolver Canada imprint. Both labels have since developed into highly respected and trusted sources,
subsequently raising the profile of Canada’s electronic music scene by providing then unknown producers
such as Akufen and Deadbeat an international platform to spread their distinctive sound throughout the
world. Beyond developing homegrown talent, both imprints continue to invite an inspired selection of
international artists including Pier Bucci, Monolake and Brett Johnson to name a few. 
 
For Mike it’s always been a question of choosing uncompromising artists who possess a unique and original
voice - an attitude that also defines his own work whether recording as John Shananigans, The Sunaj
Assassins or under his own name. There’s a distinctive feel to his music that’s both dark and soulful, that
stays true to his roots while embracing the future and never fails to deliver a flurry of kick-ass, funk infected
beats easily proven by a volley of timeless singles over the years and two previous full lengths. Take 2001’s
Slight of Hand on Force Inc - an album that cemented his reputation as an up-and-coming Minimal Techno
producer and 2005’s Possible Conclusions to Stories That Never End - a collection of chilled-out
Electronica inspired by his musical odyssey throughout Chile in 2003. 
 
Mike’s recent move to Berlin represents the fulfillment of another chapter in his musical career and with so
many influential Canadian producers having taken up residence in the German capital over the last few
years, it’s a chance to hook up with old friends again and start collaborating on new plans and ideas, just
like the old days. Then of course there’s the new album, the accompanying remix projects and the
immediate matter of fatherhood to make 2008 something of a milestone both professionally and personally.

M.U.M & Minus proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Barem"- M.U.M- Episode 52
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement





Mauricio Barembuem (a.k.a. Barem) is a young emerging artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was a
music student and a guitar enthusiast since the age of 15. By the age of 19, Barem was fully dedicated to
creating electronic music shortly after a trip to Berlin. In 2003, he started djing and performing live sets of
minimal techno. Today, Barem's groovy minimal tracks are based around synthetic samples, analog
rhythmic elements and hypnotic basslines. Also integrating rhythmic nuances of his native argentinian
roots, Barem's work is singularly deep, tracky and heady with a timbral sensibility that is intermittently
harmonic. Meanwhile, his sound continues to evolve while he cleverly maintains his own unique style.
 
In 2006, Barem did extensive world touring throughout Europe, South America and North America. At the
year's end, he was ranked as the #4 "best newcomer" in Groove Magazine's annual reader's poll issue. 
Now that Barem is a household name in the techno world, he will continue expanding his sound while
constantly djing and playing live around the world. For the present and future, Barem takes a step
forward by focusing his music productions to the only two families where he feels a strong connection,
MIinus and foundsound.

M.U.M & Minus proudly presents "Miami Sessions with Magda"- M.U.M- Episode 51

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


With the release of her solo STOP EP on Minus, Magda can finally afford to take stock of a
whirlwind few years that have seen the insatiable demand for her very special blend of house and
techno carry her the length and breadth of the globe.
 
November 2005 and Magda’s set is reaching its climax at London’s Fabric. One moment she’s
pounding the crowd with her very own 48 Hour Crack In Your Bass, the next the hairs on the
back of 500 necks simultaneously stand to attention as the moody chords from Strafe’s all time
classic Set It Off produce a collective gasp of appreciation from the dancefloor. She’s in the
zone, unphased by the raucous response she’s generating. Virtually hidden by the racks of fx
units and monitors surrounding her, she remains a picture of calmness, dictating the play with a
cool hand.
 
It’s easy to see why she’s one of the most exciting prospects to breakthrough in recent years.   
Magda makes things happen. Always has done, always will do.
 
Currently residing in Berlin, a relative stone’s throw from her home town of Zywiec in Poland
considering the nomadic existence of her childhood, she seems to have finally found a city that
mirrors her own attitude to life - no restrictions and certainly no compromise. It’s a philosophy
that also flows through Magda’s music particularly during her after hour sets. The ability to guide
her audience through the dark recesses of contemporary minimalism before delivering them back
safely into the light means her name is never far from the lips of discerning clubbers and fellow
DJs alike.
 
Her family left Zywiec for Texas in 1984 when she was nine before finally settling in Detroit in
1986. All this traveling around from one starkly contrasting environment to another, taught her to
deal with new challenges and to adapt to new situations pretty quickly, lessons that have
subsequently helped her deal with the often hectic life of a touring DJ. Always the outsider, the
concept of ‘home’ was never as straightforward as it is for some. Sometimes though, home isn’t
a physical location, it’s a state of mind and when she first turned up at a warehouse party a
couple of blocks from where she’d grown up in the tough district of Hamtramck, she knew she’d
found it. This initial foray into the Detroit underground culminated in the mind-blowing experience
that was Spastik - Richie Hawtin’s first Plastikman PA. She was hooked. 
 
Within a few months, armed with a cheap pair of belt drive turntables and an unquenchable thirst
for vinyl, she’d moved from one side of the shop counter to the other at the influential Record
Time store and had also persuaded the bar where she worked to put on a monthly techno night
with Claude Young and Daniel Bell. Her enthusiasm was totally infectious and they soon asked
her to warm up for them. In conversation it’s clear to see how much the lack of attitude and
unconditional support from Bell in particular has shaped Magda’s own way of doing things.
 
Then, inspired by her mother’s ‘dark and surreal’ art she decided to study Graphic Design in
New York state but soon realized music was the most natural medium for her self expression.
Nevertheless, this abstract influence can still be found in her music production, juxtaposing as
she does warm, thick swathes of sound with jagged little hi hat patterns, sometimes lazy,
sometimes clinical but always purposeful and expressive.  
On returning to Detroit she met Richie Hawtin at one of the legendary Hot Box parties where a
mutual friend introduced her. It was the first of what turned out to be a couple of chaotic
encounters that eventually led to the invitation of a gig at Hawtin’s 13 Below night. It was there
she first met Marc Houle. Their off-beat humor quickly developed into an unshakeable
friendship and Magda was soon lodging with Marc in Windsor where their musical symbiosis
started laying the foundations for 2003’s Run Stop Restore project together with Troy
Pierce.  
 
By this time she’d already cut her teeth on the main stage, regularly performing at the System
raves in Detroit and as part of the Women on Wax collective. Things don’t always go
according to plan though, and by 1999 Magda was pretty much fed up with the ‘scene politics’
that seemed directly at odds with the feelings she’d first encountered. She took a step back,
followed her heart and immersed herself in the minimal sounds scuttling out of Germany in
particular (i.e Brinkmann, Perlon, Kompakt). The resulting bootleg CD mix - Fact and Friction -
won her a new set of admirers and consolidated her growing relationship with Hawtin, opening
for him at the millennium celebration EPOK and also forming part of an enviable line up at the
Plus 8 ten year anniversary party From Our Minds To Yours. Since then she has become his
sole choice as opening DJ, accompanying him on both European and Stateside tours. 
 
The new millennium brought a host of new digital technology with it, most notably Final Scratch
and when she wasn’t on the road she could be found wiling away the hours transferring Hawtin’s
vast record collection into the digital domain. At the time there were only about ten DJs using
Final Scratch and while others regarded it with suspicion, Magda was quick to see the potential,
re-editing her favorite tracks to further enhance the distinctive flavor of her sets. She shies away
slightly from the ubiquitous ‘minimal’ tag, citing Chicago Jack and Acid as equally significant
ingredients in her sound but whichever way you look at it, she is part of a movement that is
rapidly redefining electronic dance music as we know it. Turntables, laptops, samplers and efx
units now clutter her DJ booth as the wall between traditional DJing and ‘on the fly’ production
starts to crumble.   
 
And so, the Minus train rumbles on, forging a relentless path through new, uncharted territory.
Magda however, remains refreshingly free from the burden of expectation. Genuinely surprised
by the trajectory her life has taken yet deeply aware of the responsibility she has to her growing
army of fans, she faces the future with the same wide-eyed, ‘devil may care’ attitude that has
always accompanied her from city to city, from airport to airport, from disco to disco. A lonely
existence? For some maybe but Magda knows more than most that home is where the heart is. 
 
Berlin is a fickle friend, a city that throws up unlimited scope and unseen perils in equal
measures. A muse to some - spurring them on to new heights of creativity, a vampire’s kiss to
others - intoxicating at first, it eventually sucks them dry, leaving a hollow shell with nothing left
but dreams of what might have been. Luckily, Magda already had something of the night about
her when she arrived in 2003 and, liberated from the clutches of New York’s draconian attitude
to club culture, she took to the Berlin underground like a fish to water. The notorious Beatstreet
afterhour parties got the energy coursing through her veins once more and she immediately set
about reevaluating and redefining her relationship to the music.
 
An intense flurry of activity followed. Together with Troy Pierce and Marc Houle, Magda began
exploring new production possibilities, honing her turntable skills and extending her dj sets in
order to satisfy the insatiable appetites of Berlin’s club kids. The transition was by no means
straight forward, taking both time and dedication but the hybrid sound that emerged, drawing
inspiration from the twin towers of Berlin and Detroit, has gone on to capture the imagination of
clubbers the world over.
 
In this sense, last year’s mix compilation She’s a Dancing Machine represents the first
volume of her audio-biography and sums up the ambition that drives this diminutive figure behind
the decks. Somehow finding the time to throw down an epic 70 track, multi-layered excursion
between the 130 shows she clocked up in 2006 (never mind the afterhours) really cemented her
reputation, topping off a year that also saw her hold successful residencies at Robert Johnson
(Offenbach), Technique (Leeds) and Fuse (Brussels) plus numerous appearances at festivals
around the globe such as Lowlands, Sonar, The Detroit Music Festival and Mutek.
 
Yet despite reaching the enviable position of being able to choose her gigs, there is no room for
complacency. Shouldering the increasing weight of expectation she has come to expect the
unexpected, in fact adversity has often propelled her on to greater things. There’s also a sense of
duty to keep pushing the envelope and this year she’ll be expanding her set-up to incorporate
new technology in addition to the delay pedals and edits that already give her sets their
distinctive flavour. It’s a move that should blur the boundaries between studio production and live
performance even further and will no doubt help formulate ideas for her upcoming album which
promises to be another continuous exploration into deep, dark, minimal disco. 
 
However before that there’s a string of remixes to enjoy for 2007 including Heartthrob’s Baby
Kate (Minus), Gotham Road by Ryan Crosson (Trapez) and Louderbach (Underline). It’s also
worth keeping an eye on Items and Things, the new label from Magda, Marc and Troy that’s
home to their more abstract, off the wall creations. 
 
Someone once said‚ the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. Well, Magda
has definitely put in the work although she’s happier leaving the definition of success to others.
The arrival is superfluous. Just like her late night musical excursions, it’s the journey that’s
important and with it the desire to maintain the high standards she sets and feed the creative
hunger within - if that’s also good enough for us, then so be it.

Miami Underground Movement Proudly presents " Gabriel Ben(Teggno-Tattoo Detectives) live @ Blue South Beach@ M.U.M- Episode 47


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



Gabriel Ben is part of the next generation of techno producers/djs. Gabriel has captivated crowds over the years with his dancefloor unique sound and his vibrant energy. Although GB has been involved in the music industry for well over 10 years, its been only the last several which has allowed him to shine through the ranks and earn him the utmost respect from industry heads. GB also teamed up in 2005 with Tacopimp to form the group "Tattoo Detectives". Together they also created the record label "TeggnO" which started in 2007.

Gabriel began his dj career in 1987 without a source of income, so thanks to his brother who dj'ed at the time, Gabriel was able to get his hands on some equipment. The rest is history! Influenced by a local dj at a skating rink, Gabriel visioned himself in the booth one day playing to a crowd and getting people to move their bodies. Gabriel's love for all music styles grew, especially as he grew older and started visiting nightclubs where house music became his staple. Local pioneering DJ's like Timmy Tee, EC LaRock, Joe Callari, Robbie Tronco, Josh Wink and King Britt all influenced Gabriel Ben early on.

Production has also gone hand in hand with DJ'ing. Gabriel Ben began making original productions in 2002. GB's unique blend of funky, house, electronic and techno elements all come together to create some floor pounding productions. Gabriel's first production Mere Thoughts back in 2002 was immediately noticed by industry professionals. The track was charted number 1 on Sonic Foundry's Amateur Producers site for nearly 3 weeks, which was visited by more than a thousand people daily. Also the track was selected runner-up in the DMC-Mixer Magazine, and Roxio's United States DJ search contest. Gabriel Ben has since worked on and developed a number of original productions and remixes, but it wasn't until 2005 when he caught his first big break.

In 2005, Gabriel Ben asked Tacopimp to do some vocals on his track "In Ibiza" which lead to some excellent reviews from innerphaseny.com & dancemusic.about.com. The track also was charted globally by a few fellow techno industry heads. So quickly after that they teamed up to form "Tattoo Detectives. Their first track together as Tattoo Detectives, "ETC." was signed by the legendary Carl Cox for his mix CD "Carl Cox @ Space Ibiza" which was released by Intec Records in July 2006. Carl told Residentadvisor.com "This record is storming" and "Its pumping techno in its fury." Carl also went on to say the track represented the sounds of his legendary Space parties in Ibiza as quoted in the CD.

The follow up single "Il Salto Fuori"got even more support globally and by the likes of Paul Van Dyk & Carl Cox leading the way. The track charted on Cox's Top 10 for November & December 2006. and was picked by Coxy in his Best of 2006 Global Radio Show which aired 12.30.06. The support didn't stop with Cox. Paul Van Dyk has also been a big fan of the track and also been supporting the Gabriel Ben Exclusive Remix in his DJ sets and on his Vonyc Sessions & Frtiz radio shows. PVD used GB's mix in his "Cream Ibiza CD" which came out in June 2008.

The group's single "She Bleeps N' Bloops" got some notable recognition as it made headlines with URB magazine and BEATPORT, becoming a top seller on the internet’s most prominent download music store. "Like a Bitch" also caught on with industry support, and was charted by DJ Lucca. "Dirty Volume" has gained a ton of support, as a regular in Coxy's playlist as well as signed to Adam Sheridan's latest CD compilation on Goodgref. GB's "Days of Groove" track has also gotten some support globally, and to the likings of Technasia. GB's ep "I Love Music" featured the hits "I Love the 80's" & "Something Wicked This Way" which got plays from the likes of Carl Cox, Jon Rundell, amongst others. All the tracks and releases can be found on almost all the internet web stores including Beatport, Juno, Trackitdown, and Dance Records.

The duo have also been captivating crowds with their DJ sets having played all across the US and globally on XM radio, Vonyc Sessions, Afterhours FM in Lima-Peru, Proton Radio and DJ Lucca’s Sound of Acapulco show in Czech Republic which aired New Years Eve in 2007. The duo was also invited by Cox to open for him at PACHA NY back in October 2007 for 4000 people. Now, they can be heard monthly on their Vonyc Show "TeggnO Sessions" airing every 3rd Tuesday. The duo are also frequent guests Afterhours FM aired in Lima, Peru, every couple of months. You can check the schedule to find out all the dates.

This year will see the release of several brand new singles and remixes from GB as well as Tattoo Detectives. Along with a little more international touring in Europe & Ibiza. With support by Carl Cox & Paul Van Dyk amongst many, talent in the studio and on the decks, Gabriel Ben's name and reputation is growing rapidly in 2008 and beyond...

"If you gotta take a drug to hear the music, then you really ain't down wit the shit from day 1 anyway..."

Special Thanks to Gabriel Ben

Miami Underground Movement Proudly presents... " 1605 Session with UMEK " Resident Dj@ M.U.M- Episode 46

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










DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound��? and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

Special Thanks To  Umek and Mr Urban Jeram

Miami Underground Movement proudly presents...  Techno legend Alex Bau @ M.U.M Episode 45
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement






What's your credo?

Where are not many dj's of this type - dj's who believed in techno from the first minute, dj's who have experienced techno from the very beginning, dj's who have made techno their own thing, dj's who have created their own unique styles or even more - who have developed one over the years and who's name's are synonymous with that specific sound. alex bau is one of those dj's. at the same time, however, there are some slight differences with this guy. why focus on just one style of music? why only minimal sounds? why only techno? why, if you could have a well orchestrated combination of both?

Is it related to the fact that for alex bau, there was once a time before techno? with thousands of records in a collection that spans through many different types, styles and genres of music, certainly there have been many individual records which have left their own, indelible marks. there's no doubt about that! for instance, alex still does depeche mode nights from time to time, just for fun. but his activities with techno don't suffer at all from that, not in the least! with his 5+ hour sets at his first resident club in his southeast bavarian home area, the "libella", where dj hell also started his career back in the 80's, he achieved the reputation as someone who was totally aware of what he was doing, totally dedicated to it, but also someone who was totally infatuated with it. he hosted his own radio show for over 2 years on a local radio station, still the only techno show in the area. however, after countless gigs at the local clubs the time was deemed to be right to prove that he was also able to play at other venues around the globe. while collaborating with his friend sven dedek, whose productions were mainly released under the moniker's "basic implant" or "electric envoy" on labels lsuch as "fine audio recordings" from chris liebing, their tracks hit the technofloors in a very impressive way. during that time he was also able to collect international experiences behind the decks as sven played live. releases like the "phase edit ep", a highly acclaimed and well sold rework of some nitzer ebb ebm classics, or their work for dave angel's "rotation", justin berkovi's "predicaments" or pascal feos' "pv-records" enabled them to reach a much larger audience. finally, after numerous releases for different labels beside his own "toneman", alex released his debut-album "connected" in late 2004. "connected" immediately drew the attention of many high class dj's such as chris liebing, pascal feos and good groove, just to name a few. the fact that these artists, all of whom were working with different styles, grabbed the tracks from "connected", shows that the name of the album couldn't have been chosen any better.

After starting his own label (toneman) back in 2000, alex also started to work on his solo productions for labels such as chris liebing's "clr" or the montreal based label, "default recordings". montreal can be seen as kind of a gauge of alex's dj activities! within 3 years he was booked in montreal four times and his set from the legendary night at aria from january 2006 was even released as a mix-cd, "live at aria / montreal" so that alex came back months later to perform for the release party, once again a night to remember for the montreal techno movement. at this point in time alex was already booked as the headliner and it was reported by numerous emails and guest book entries that it was hardly a mistake to do so

but it's not only montreal where alex is being booked again and again; there are many other places, which is a good indicator that he seems to be a guy who understands what to do when standing in front of a crowd, someone who is always trying to bring the party to the max. clubs like frankfurt's "u60311", munich's "electric delicate", würzburg's "airport", or the legendary "tresor" in berlin are not only the trademarks of german techno club-culture, they can also be found on alex's gig list. brazil, usa, canada, poland, croatia, serbia, holland or the closer austria and switzerland are some of the tour stops on alex's calender, and no matter where, all over the places people can hear and feel how interesting, versatile and powerful techno can be if you understand how to combine minimal and straight techno as a constant up and down. everything is completely under control while the party is going wild, and that is what alex always goes for.

The fact that alex has become an official artist on the highly acclaimed label "zenit", that he has been the platform for acts like marco carola, adam beyer, the advent, gaetano parisio and many more, is the logical consequence of years of dedicated, hard work in good, high quality techno. techno in its purest form, just as described above, is the goal for alex - whether or not it involves playing or producing. on his current album "credo", minimal tunes go together with peaktime slammers in a way that appears obvious and logical. techno can do a lot, if you let it do so. that's the credo - his credo!

Special Thanks to Alex Bau...

Miami Underground Movement proudly presents... Rafe Nunes @ M.U.M Episode 44
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement



Rafe started his short but intense road ae road as a house music enthusiastic addict. Then he tried his ideas on producing music, and finally he had the chance to do his turns with his own music as a DJ. Additionally, the new experience as a DJ led him to heavy improvements as a producer.

On a quick rising career, the second remix he ever made, Noa Tylo's "Let's Do It", reached 33º on Billboard Hot Dance Club Play charts. This marked the definite proof that Rafe was ready to boost even the most mainstream music, out from his creative mind.

His efforts are, however, completely focused on underground club music. Techy beats on a mix of progressive grooves and solid sequences could define what one will hear when listening to his releases and DJ sets. It's an unique producing style which also shows how he acts as a DJ.

Special Thanks to Rafe Nunes

simply blending two tracks together and has long sought to augment his
mixing by incorporating the limitless possibilities provided by
technology. Endless experimentation with both hardware and software
has helped bridge the gap, but as technology continues to grow, so
does Brian's curiosity for using it to open up new possibilities.

   This blend of the human and the electronic is further explored in
his productions, where Brian aims to re-create instantaneous human
emotions through electronic sounds. Although these snapshots of our
consciousness can occur for just brief moments in our lives, they can
continue on and be further evolved through music.

About Leo Janeiro

Nowadays, Leo Janeiro is considered one of the outstanding DJs in the electronic scene in brazil with all his groovy sets concerning House Music.

From small parties (under the influence of top brazilian DJs, as well as black music) up to nationwide dance floors, Leo Janeiro has drawn his history sharing turntables with international DJs like Carl Cox (UK), Deep Dish (USA), Josh Wink (USA) , Layo & Bushwacka ( UK ) , Booka Shade ( Ger ) , Martin Eyerer  ( Ger ) , Claude VonStroke ( USA ), John Acquaviva ( CAN ) , Pete Tong ( Uk ) and others .

For being a black music party lover, Leo Janeiro was invited to take part in Rio de Janeiros radio station program in 1994. From that moment on, his career has never stopped and he was also been considered one of the main radio DJs.

In 2002, after playing in many clubs and doing lots of gigs, Leo Janeiro was nominated one of the best DJs in Brazil by the Brazilian magazine DJ SOUND and 2007 the best dj scene in Rio . However, little by little his music started to follow other ways: he started flirting with house music and techno that were blowing the dance floors all over the town.

Leo Janeiro has performed full of house music and tech house in most important clubs in Rio , such as Lounge 69 ( Neo ) and Fosfobox ( Bootleg ).

Stefano Frisoni Bio;

Stefano from Rimini got into music when he still only 12, by listening to italian dance music and a little bit of house: in the meanwhile it was born the love for making music.

He produces his first production in 1997, by making some dance tracks. In the year 2000 he felt a suddenly upside down, when he first listen to thecno music, thanks to the magic venue in the nearby, The Cocorico' Club, where everything seemed to be different than the other places: it all came to a massive energetic sound!!!!

So in the year 2003 he met my colleague Daniel, a.k.a. CantoDj with whom he started to plan seriously my producer career together. When 2 crazy minds join their forces together, it could only come out a strong and talented project in which his idea and my skills in making music work perfectly together. That's how TEAMTEK was born, a duo project founded by CantoDj and myself.

They year 2007 sees his new collaboration with Francesco Bonora, a close friend of his: They decided to build up a new crew ,the PUNTO G Staff and a new electronic label, which is the ELECTRO G RECORDS Special FRANCESCO BONORA, A.K.A.

Miami Underground Movement and Dirty Groove  proudly presents... "Dj Misjah "@ MUM Episode 33 M.U.M.-Miami Underground Movement brought to you by Rod B. and Alvaro Garfunk.

Dj Misjah @Boutique Miami DownTown Friday-July 25th


Dj Misjah Bio:

The name Misjah has been synonymous with quality dance floor productions for over 17 years. An innovator, an inspiration and living legend to many.
It all began in 1991 with releases under one of his alias's "Dyewitness". “Observing the earth”, “What would you like to hear”, “The Future” and “The Masterplan” already put his name on the map of dance floor hits forever. They are still considered all time classics.
  
After these releases, Midtown Records asked Misjah to start his own label for them; X-Trax was born on December 1994. He started producing tracks with the help of some friends: DJ Tim and Jeroen (Groovehead) Artists such as Ferry Corsten, Umek, and Piet Bervoets (Rank1) also had releases on X-Trax Classics from this label include: Trippin' Out, The Club, Special Acid Edition, and of course “Access” which made it to the English charts in 1995.

Due to the huge success of X-Trax he was sought after by such artists like: Josh Wink, Jam and Spoon, Reflect, Format One, Finitribe, Denki Groove, etc to produce remixes for them. 

Misjah has also produced under various artist/project names in different styles of dance music. In 1999 he started another project under the name “AMbassador”. It was under this name that he remixed “Blaze - My Beat”. His remix became a huge club hit and was used in the video clip. It even made it to the English charts.

In December 1999 he stopped doing the A&R for X-Trax. In 2001 he started a new label called ReRun and ReRun Booking's DJ Agency. The agency is responsible for booking some major players in the techno scene such as Hardcell, Trevor Rockcliffe, etc. 

He has released on numerous labels including: Craft Music, Wetmusik, Pocket, Zync, Mankind, Jericho etc. Just to name a few. His records can be found in the record bags of such djs as: Adam Beyer, Sven Vath, Carl Cox etc.
Since his dj career took off in 1994, he has been traveling around the globe continuously to all continents. Playing at famous clubs and festivals including: Dance Valley, Roskilde, Mayday and Nature One, etc
As a DJ, Misjah has his own funky style. His sets contain bits and pieces of almost all styles of dance music from techno to house and from minimal to electro and everything in between. He uses his records as tools, in order to create different sounds and tracks and is known for his flawless mixing on 3 turntables, and 2 cd players.

Back to Brazil, Rodrigo started his record company career working for Sony Music as a Dance music A&R.

While his career at Sony was going up, Rodrigo has never abandoned the turntables andkept spinning at parties in many different countries (Brazil, Costa Rica, Spain, US, England).

In 1991 Rodrigo was voted the 1 DJ in Rio de Janeiro by DJ Sound Magazine?s national poll, the most respected in the country.

In 1997, moved to Miami to work with Sony Music's Latin regional office. Since then, Rodrigo has done everything : produced compilations, mixed them, remixed tracks, was executive producer of remixes of artists such as Mariah Carey, Earth Wind and Fire, Wyclef Jean, The Fugees, Shakira and Ricky Martin. Also started to produce electronic artists and has managed the album releases of DJ's such as Roger Sanchez, Fatboy Slim, X Press 2, DJ Rap and Josh Wink in Latin America.

Rodrigo was also the VP of Strategic Marketing and New Media for Universal Music Latin America, handling a electronic music division with partners and distributed labels such as Defected, Subliminal, Ministry of Sound and Soulshine. He mixed many compilations for MoS and was the first DJ ever to mix a Subliminal compilation without belonging to the label's cast. Besides this, has his own production label, Exit 12 Inc. and handles a JV with US based labels Basswalk Records and UC Music Group.

Rodrigo turntables = HOUSE

Can be funky, techy, electro a mix of influences absorbed during his career. He has lived the story of House music in his own veins. From the born of the Chicago House and characters such as Marshall Jefferson and Farley "Jackmaster" Funk to Kevin Saunderson's Sound of Detroit.

From the born of London's Acid House to the Soulful House of Tony Humphries and Frankie Knuckles. From the deepest garage sounds to the progressive days of Sasha and Digweed.

From Mike Pickering's unforgettable sets at Hacienda to Norman Cook's mega parties at Brighton Beach. From Morales to Angelo and Ingrosso. And the list goes on names that certainly influenced him Tenaglia, Morillo, Jellybean, Farina, Sanchez, Levan, Vega and Gonzalez.

He was always there and lived it all.

In the meanwhile Alex's passion for music got so bigger, that drove him to built his first midi home studio in his own small room, and from this “small world” came the idea of his first cut project in collaboration with a close friend: P.F.Z "Love into the Future", released on the famous swiss compilation: DJ Energy Parade. Then he knew Andrea Doria and they have begun a collaboration on very different projects, like Avalone One "La onda del ritmo" (The Rhythm Wave) with Ramirez vocals. Another one was Atlantis Ita "See you in the next life", having a great acknowledgment working with Age One, Dino Lenny's U.K. based label. These records had a big room in clubs and was also published on the Pete Tong and Fat Boy Slim's Millenium compilation. Then Alex have produced many other projects, the most famous one is "Isn't life wonderful?", released on IDJ. The song it went in a short time a big room anthem (mostly in the english clubs) and was immediately published on the Ministry of Sound compilation. Constant experimental research, passion for every kind of music and curiosity for samples digital manipulation drove him to build a personal project called Loose Headz.

In the last few years, he is continued to work close to close, cheek to cheek with Andrea Doria, releasing “Jumping Jack” and presenting the first single together called “Arsenico E.P.” both released on BluFin.

ESPERIENZE LAVORATIVE

La mia carriera o se così si può chiamare inizia nel 1996, partecipando ad una gara di dj presso l'allora discoteca "imperiale" di Tirrenia, mostrando delle buone capacità e piazzandomi con un buon terzo posto...

Ma l'approdo vero e proprio con il pubblico di un vero locale nel 2000 come resident all'Insomnia di Ponsacco (PI),lavorando con artisti del calibro di Paolo Kighine, Thomas T, Francesco Zappalà, fino a Gianrico Leoni, Mario Scalmbrin,Frankie Knuckles, partecipando anche ad una data "Syncopate" con i migliori dj della scena musicale italiana e non e collaborando con il gruppo Factory art a varie serate nel panorama toscano.

L'esperienza Insomnia solo due anni ma serve a dare visibilità al mio nome, nonchè a maturarmi tecnicamente.

Nel 2003 alla corte del Kama Kama di Lido di camaiore con il quale viene fuori anche qualche data in Fortezza da basso (FI) e Liberty a viareggio.

Dal 2005 sono free-lance, ho deciso di cambiare genere musicale,passando dalla techno pura (Insomnia), all'hard house (Kama Kama più varie collaborazioni), fino alla deep house ed inoltrarmi alla Tech house e downtempo, con maggiori stimoli dal lato musicale e tecnico, ma cambiando il mio pubblico, cercando palcoscenici più piccoli, ma dove viene apprezzata di più la mia musica.

Attualmente collaboro con il Frau Marleen di Torre del lago (LU) più Freelance.

Miami Underground Movement proudly presents... "Andrea Doria" - M.U.M. Episode 26



 

M.U.M.-Miami Underground Movement brought to you by Rod B. and Alvaro Garfunk. This week M.U.M. brings you Andrea Doria from Ravenna, Italy.

ANDREA DORIA is 33 years old and lives in Ravenna (famous of its Roman mosaics), close to Bologna, in Italy. At the tender age of 8 his father bought him his first analog synth and since then he realized that this sound is going to be part of his DNA. At the age of 16, he began to develop a passion for computers and he became a programmer. At the arrival of the first 8/16bit computer he started earning a living composing soundtracks for videogames, and also for some Italian software companies, simply using the synth processors (SID/Commodore64) and language machine. Since then Andrea's artistic knowledge developed with a powerful influence of some eclectic artists from the seventies like Klaus Schulze, Richard Wahnfried, Chris and Cosey and Edgar Frose. In the 90s he was completely blown away by the house scene and decided that DJing was going to become his career. He was fascinated by the way these DJs alchemists used to mix sounds and cultures at the same time and created such a big interest in the booming Dance scene. In December 2003, Andrea thought that only by having his own record label would help him in being artistically free in his productions,and "Ready 2 Rock Music" was born. A year later, after the huge success of 'Bucci Bag' started to fade away, success reached after a 8 years long collaboration with his friend Dino Lenny, Andrea decided to look into a new direction and find new ways to push his artistic boundaries and took a year off music production and started to get in the field of 3D art visuals, Creative Thinking and Occult Studies. With his new philosophy of life, "NOT ONLY A DJ", Andrea with the AUM brother ANANDA BOSMAN and 432 Hz crew, is researching, promoting and financing the science of sound frequencies and instruments Tuning to reach the perfect alchemical and AUM-harmonic coherent holo-vibe for the human holo-body.

To know more about the Natural Tuning 432 Hz Frequency go to Ananda's website: http://www.akasha.de/~aton/Unidance.html 4

Miami Underground Movement Proudly presents... "Jay Lumen @ M.U.M." - M.U.M. Episode 25

 

Rod-B.,Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement


Jay Lumen… Music is part of his life since his childhood years. He learnt music in a conservatoire for eight years, which provides a good basis to his ambition of making music.

During his schooldays it shown, that he rather turned the compositions of the classical authors to his own style, than he played the original versions of them. Although he learnt to play on a classical instrument – violin – he early recognized that his desire for creative work wasn’t satisfied with this instrument. Immediately he got his first computer, he started to make his ideas to be heard. In the meantime he started to get to know the synthetizator in the way of self-education. As he obtained the more developed technologies and softwares, developed himself with them, he got more and more closer to that sounding in which he felt himself familiar.

Nowdays he is the one of fastest developer new generation DJ/Producers. As producer he has many international releases on many famous electronic music labels just like, Global Undergrond, Baroque, Whoop!, Extrema, Curvve, etc… Also you can find his tracks on more compilations to: GU Mixed2 (Global Underground), Bagrooves: The Black Collection (Seamless / Absolute), Synchronised 2 (Global Underground), Housexy: Summer In The City (Ministry Of Sound) etc… In his other side he has a vocal house project called „Supaflava” what was in the UK Club Chart Top 20 across 6 weeks. The best position of this track „Time In Motion” was 7th there.

In jun2007 the major label Baroque Records asked Jay to make the next album of Baroque Elements series. After more then 6 months intensive work in february of 2008, Jay’s first double album „Baroque Elements 002” is out in the online and offline shops to. You can find the point where the DJ and producer meets when you listen BE002, couse It’s a mixed artist album. Also there is a DJ friendly (unmixed ) version on the second CD. The first feedbacks are really good whereas the promotional version of the album started at 11th place on the British Plastic Music Chart, leaves behind such big names as: „The Orb” or „Martin Solveig”. Also the”Elements Taster EP” vinyl with 2 tracks of BE002 is in the top sellers on juno permanently.

As DJ he made his first party in the basic school when he was 14 years old only. In the beginning he played his favourite tracks from vinyl, but later, following the technical development, he changed the vinyl to using CDs. He builds his sets from the musical basis of house, tech-house, and progressive house. His sounding is featured by dynamic, pulsating grooves as you can hear it also in his compositions and in his sets to.
In these times Jay Lumen plays around the world … just like at last times in Austria, Serbia, Poland,  Egypt, India, England, etc…

Special Thanks to Jay Lumen

He produces his first production in 1997, by making some dance tracks. In the year 2000 he felt a suddenly upside down, when he first listen to thecno music, thanks to the magic venue in the nearby, The Cocorico' Club, where everything seemed to be different than the other places: it all came to a massive energetic sound!!!!

So in the year 2003 he met my colleague Daniel, a.k.a. CantoDj with whom he started to plan seriously my producer career together. When 2 crazy minds join their forces together, it could only come out a strong and talented project in which his idea and my skills in making music work perfectly together. That's how TEAMTEK was born, a duo project founded by CantoDj and myself.

They year 2007 sees his new collaboration with Francesco Bonora, a close friend of his: They decided to build up a new crew ,the PUNTO G Staff and a new electronic label, which is the ELECTRO G RECORDS (www.myspace.com/electrogrecords).

As long as he can remember he loved music…the Hard Rock of 70's, the New Romantic Style of the 80's, the Beat of the 90's…in all this years of spinning around he never lost his feeling, always looking for the next evolution step.

For years was this club in one basement almost every sunday morning, the last exit for partypeople! In 1994 he played for the first time in front of 3000 people at the WOODSTOCK Revival Festival in Ausburg/Halle 6, spinning records of that time. One year later he opened together with a friend he's first club called XTC in Augsburg. In the year 2000 he returned home to Slovenia.
After his arrival, he continued his comercial path as DJ and owner of KRA-KRA ale-house (bar), until he become a leaseholder of the Sing-Sing Club where he finally discovered his love for Electric Music in 2002.

Two years later he started to organize again After Partys in Ljubljana and introduced himself for the first time to the larger audience. At the After Party of SINDUSTRY 2004, which he organized himself he animated the audience together with DJ UMEK and DJ ALEKSIJ.

In a very short period of time he started to play in Slovenian clubs as DJ, while organizing at the same time some of the significant After Partys as: SINDUSTRY 2004, MEET ME AFTER 2005, VALENTINO KANZYANI, DESYEN MASIELLO, DEEP DISH and similar. On his After Party's he hosted names like: Sharam (Deep Dish), Steve Porter, Frederik (Pako&Frederik), Funk D'Void, Sonique, Toni Rios, Umek, Valentino Kanzyani, David Penn, Marko Nastic, Hernan Cattaneo...

At the moment he is the Promotor & Resident DJ of the biggest Club »FACTORY« in Ljubljana, the capitol of Slovenia and he is working in the studio on his production with ZERO ABSENCE and a new project called: THE BAWANI PROJECT.

With almost 40 years of age and with 20 years of spinning and playing across Europe….he's not going to stop, as long the people will dance to his music!

Keep on groovin'!
Producer, DJ, Musician/Composer, and vocal… Tomy Declerque, Jackiedj, KayKay and Bawani. Four totally different spirits, it turned out, are stronger connected that it would seem at first sight. Diversity is not only good but its sometimes necessary and indispensable. That was the first lession members of Zero Absence and the Bawani Project won. Four people with different backgrounds, life styles and knowledge joined their forces, not only experiences but energy, expectation, wishes, goals, love for music and huge amount of time. First the Zero Absence was born, than the Bawani Project layed eyes on light of the world. Their first release shows they fell for new, fresh electro vibes. I Found a Star was born. The first creation of Z.A. feat Bawani project was more or less very unexpected success. In a week it occured on top 100 Chart on one of central Slovenian radio stations. It started on 33.th place and in only few weeks it rose to the 1. place where it is in the moment (jan 08) of creating first Biography of this artistic group. Critics were fabulous, response of audience enviable. The group performed life for the first time on Amnesia World Tour in leading Club in Ljubljana – Factory, back to back with some greatest artists as Mar T, Micah. Micah having world tour with Mar T honoured them with performing live with them. People loved it. Another success was presentation of I Found a Star on american portal ourstage.com where they reached 1st place among more than 400 entries and made it to quarter – finals. After first live performance I Found a Star was performed numerously in Slovenia, Croatia, Spain and Italy.

A slightly new bit and vibes that carries their first-born is captured in second creation called »Don˙t«.
The biggest sucess for Zero Absence, not only for Jackiedj himself, was to present the track at 6 gigs during the WMC 2008 in Miami.
Forthcoming release at BEHOLD RECORDINGS:

He was born on the 6th of January 1980 in Budapest, then he moved to the countryside with his family at the age of ten. His father’s love of music also infected him in his early years. During the primary school years he learnt playing on synthesizer. Then in the age of 15 he got his first computer, but in the beginning he only played onto that, but later he discovered the other possibilities of the computer. In the years about 1996/1997 between the walls of the legendary discotheque Flört, he got to know the music which was embedded his memory forever (Quench-Dreams). He wrote his first musics in the way of Fast Tracker, which wasn’t an acceptable quality at the time. Spending a lot of years with playing music and working hard, his work slowly but surely bore its fruit. By the time he felt himself to be ready to show his works to other people, 5 years has passed. In 2000 he wrote the song “Across the sahara”, wich has also played by Mo Shic and later has been released by Sauna Recordings. Getting enthusiastic on this success he sent more and more tracks to the Israelian artist, therefore in december 2001 Mo Shic asked him to make an exclusive music, what Mo Shic announced on his cd “DJ Mag World Series – Mixed by Mo Shic” in England.

After this publishments, several positive feedbacks, the love and appreciation of the people made him to go further on this way. He made a remix to the Hungarian CHI Recordings, and a common music with Andro, which got the title “She is my destiny” and became the last track of the cd “Progressive Sounds of Budapest – Mixed by Kühl & Monkz”. Later he worked together with Andro, which became the track “Liquid State & Solid State” and announced by the Italian Screen Recordings. In 2005 three of his own bakelites came out the titles of “Alterna”, “Fields”, and “Circular”. In the meantime he appeared on several compilation albums such as “Sog Files”, “Inception”, “Budapest Parade 2003”, “Budapest Parade 2004” and on mix albums of some world famous djs like: Hernan Cattaneo, Andrew K, DJ 19 and Tomas Haverlik.

He has started his dj career in 2003. During his only one and a half year-long career he already has played in whole Hungary. He has played many times on abroad in the Emirates, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, and they invite Snake back time to time. In 2005 at the voting of the Partycom Evote, ‘Snake Sedrick & Khans – Circular’ won the ‘track of the year’ title. In the meantime he was continuously making new tracks and remixes, and with his Slovakian friend, Peter, they established the Tilth Music digital label, where he plays an important role as A&R. For the ask of the American Proton Radio, Andro, Yvel & Tristan and Snake Sedrick has started their monthly 4 hour-show, which got the title Indigo.

Miami Underground Movement Proudly presents... " 1605 Session with UMEK " and his new Residency @ M.U.M- Episode 20 Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement  and new Resident Dj UMEK 1605 Session.











DJ UMEK

Uroš Umek is internationally acclaimed music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who’ve joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined “Slovenian techno sound? and successfully invested it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

The year 2007 marked the beginning of new chapter in Umek’s music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move for such an established artist as DJ Umek. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he picked up the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his productions are supported by some top dogs in the industry.

Umek recent productions include highly acclaimed club releases such as Overtake & Command, Ricochet Effect, Another Matter Entirely and Faithful Nights, but it were MTV supported hit singles Posing as Me and Carbon Occasions that stirred the most media attention and crossed over to the daily radio stations. Umek’s releases were lately included on the premiere club compilations mixed by artists such as Sander Kleinenberg, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, John Digweed, M.I.K.E. or Carl Cox. He was amongst the headliners of esteemed summer music festivals such as Primavera, Monegros or Dance Valley and he conquered the South America on the joint tour with Valentino Kanzyani and Marko Nastić once more. And this was only the introduction in the Umek’s year 2008, when he plans to finally present long expected new artist album and his own live band.

Special Thanks To  Umek and Mr Urban Jeram

Miami Underground Movement Proudly presents... " Dj Joao Paulo  @ M.U.M" - M.U.M Episode 18 Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement.

Minimal & Tech House


About João Paulo
 
João Paulo had his first contact with eletronic music by the age of 15, at Dr. Smith club. Everyone in town knows for sure the club’s story and its reputation to always bring the main international attractions to Rio de Janeiro. One of the club’s owner was his oldest brother, so, he was familiarized since he was a kid with the dancefloor, which made him become part of that universe.

Ten years after, already grown up and comfortable at the set, João Paulo has ended up by owning the pickups and has become a resident at three carioca parties: Bootleg, Mínima and Loading. With nothing but three years of career, the DJ has already participated of the Creamfields Festival in Rio de Janeiro, the Chemical Music Festival, Paz Eletrônica, Xxxperience 100º edition, Tribe, and has already played at the following parties: Burn Energy Music, Nokia Trends Mob Jam, Tim Verão at Ipanema Beach, RBK Tops, Ballantine’s Impress and Ipanema Stereo Beach 2007/2008, representing Bootleg.

In 2007, João Paulo has gone beyond the national fronteers and played at We Love Brasil, at the Carlton Hotel and at Bass Walk Records, at the club Pawl Shop, during the Winter Music Conference 2007, in Miami. Right after the conference, the DJ left to the south of Brazil, where he opened the project Life is a Loop at the club Warung, in Santa Catarina. Besides these gigs, during the Skol Beats 2007, he was invited to play at Pacha, at the party We Love Sundays.

At this time, João Paulo shared the pickups with great Brazilian names of the electronic music, such as Gui Boratto, Life is a Loop, Mary Zander, Maurício Lopes, Mau Mau, Leo Janeiro, Flow & Zeo, among many others.

Remarkable international artists also share the set with him. In this team, DJs like Fat Boy Slim, Booka Shade, Deep Dish, Tiga, Miss Kittin, Laurent Garnier, Josh Wink, Benni Benassi, Christian Smith, Martin Eyerer, Steve Lawler, Serge Santiago, Thomas Schumacher, Format B, Tim Healey, King Unique, Spirit Catcher, Luke Dzierzek, Tobias Lutzenkirchen are together, just to mention some of them.

DJ João Paulo’s style varies among techno, tech house and minimal. At the beginning, house and electro were the first influences in his sets, basically due to his brother’s sound and also because of the vocals and mixes at that time. In Winter Music, 2006, the DJ met the minimal deeper and fell in love with this music gender. Artists like Format B, Audio Fly and Trentemoller became therefore his big influences. At the beginning of 2007, he incorporated techno and decided to add those beats in his sets. Nowadays, João Paulo doesn’t like to be considered from a specific style and his case goes from house to minimal.

Another big characteristic of the DJ is his big interest in technology, mostly towards to musical universe. João Paulo researches not only music, but also last generation software like Final Scratch, Traktor DJ Studio, Serato Scratch Live and Ableton Live. The result is a vast knowledge of mixing techniques and an increasing number of tools to build songs. And the effect of it, we can see it on the dancefloor.

Special Thanks to JP

Dave DK BIOGRAPHY http://www.davedk.com
 
DJ & producer David Krasemann, better known as Dave DK has been making
waves in the electronic music scene for a couple of years now, and now starting to
emerge as a serious player. Since the early 90's he was fascinated by the
upcoming techno movement, which eventually led to his own active initiation. 1995
was the starting point for the then 17 year old. Together with a longtime friend,
Dave produced his first tracks and was involved in the organization of
underground techno and house partys, constantly trying to spread and push new
electronic music.  
Searching for new electronic sounds every day and having honed his skills as a
producer in his chosen home Berlin, Dave released his first record on Müller
Records in 1998. His DJ activities had been highly pushed since that time. In 1999
he became a resident DJ at Tresor/Globus club in Berlin, later on also at the
legendary Panorama Bar. Beside his remix productions for Beroshima and
Skiebäck he released records on raum...musik., Decore, Lifetime Music and
Cadeaux.  
As Dave is an open minded person who resents musical limits, he doesn’t want to
be reduced to one style.  His sound simply is the result of different styles that have
influenced him throughout the years. "I have a passion for the wide range between
house and techno as well as pop music and dancefloor stuff of the early 90's",
says Dave.  
Though he’s elegantly juggling a variety of electronic music to create his own style,
in his tracks he often combines tragic melodies with kickin’ grooves that transform
your body into a twisting stampede of electricity, with trademark swing and warm
funk.
The year 2000 can be marked as the first highlight in his career: his debut album  
"sensory overload“ had been released on Müller Records and there were musical
excursions on Cologne’s Television label as well as on the Barcelona based
Regular label. Dave is now currently recording for Moodmusic and also on
Playhouse (a collaboration with Holger „Smash TV“ Zilske) which brings him even
closer to his idea of electronic house tunes.
In November 2007 Dave released his second album „Lights and Colours“ on
Moodmusic.
For Dave DK, music is a model of living in which he’s able to enhance his skills in
order to realise his vision of modern electronic club and home entertainment –
expect more fantastic releases in the very near future. 
 
 
Worldwide gigs: 
  
all over Germany, Japan, Brazil,China, Switzerland, Spain, Holland, Poland, Czech
Republic, Slovenia, Israel, Portugal, Greece, Ukraine, USA , UK, Russia, Finland,

Miami Underground Movement Proudly presents... "Roger Lyra- TRANCESTATION-Vol 1@ M.U.M" - M.U.M Episode 14

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


This week M.U.M. brings you the sound of DJ Roger Lyra From Brazil.


TRACKLIST:

1. LUSTRAL - WHEN MY SATELITE FALLS DOWN (TERRY BONES DUB MIX)
2. GIANLUCA MOTTA ft. MOLLY - NOT ALONE (DEADMAU 5 REMIX)
3. MARKUS SCHULZ ft DEPARTURE - CAUSE YOU KNOW (WIPPENBERG MIX)
4. ARMIN VAN BUUREN ft SUSANA - IF YOU SHOULD GO (INPETTO MIX)
5. SANTIAGO NINO - COPACABANA
6. ERNESTO vs BASTIAN - THRILL (REFLECTING IVERSITY MIX)
7. ALLURE ft JULLIE THOMPSON - SOMEWHERE INSIDE (ANDY DUGUID MIX)
8. SIGNALRUNNERS - ELETRIC SHEEP
9. ANTON SONIN & AMX - UNDONE (RANK 1 MIX)
10. TIESTO ft JES - EVEYTHING (COSMIC GATE MIX)
11. JAN JOHNSTON - LET THE WORLD FALL APART (AROUND ME)
12. RANK 1 vs JOHAN MILLER - AND THEN (ORIGINAL MIX)


The start in the end of 80’s was in playground parties, when the tapes recorded from
the radio and a few records bought by his mother opened the gates of a culture that
was only beginning. Always ahead of his time, Roger is one of the most popular and
respected DJ’s in Brazil and the most prestigious DJs in Brazil. The aggressive style is
the trademark of his DJ set with heavy energy sounds, perfect mix that can hypnotize
the crown and a outsdanding carisma.  
 
The full-energy as a performer is real strong in every act of his DJ Set. It is really
thrilling to see him performing live and it’s impossible to be indifferent to him, even
those who do not like his kind of music can get very impressed by his skills with such a
outstanding performance full of technique and emotion. Everything a DJ can do with
deck’s and a mixer it’s just fun for him. His sound is a long trip into a evolution mix
with a unique mix of Trance & progressive, but make no mistake to underestimate his
taste for music and don’t get surprised to listen a bite of techno or Electro during his
set. This man is not afraid of new sounds. His talent as a awesome turntableist is an
extra tocuh and the crowd follows him with every mix, scratch or back-spin. 
In his home country, he is a icon to a hole generation and every week, he reaches
more than 200.000 listeners at his DJ Show at Radio Jovem Pan Fm, the bigest
satellite radio station in brazil. On 2005 he won the as “Best DJ? on the annual
ceremony of the DJ Sound Magazine Awards, the most importat in Latin America and
his performance in big festivals like SKOL BEATS and CREAMFIELDS side to side with
names like Tiesto, Fatboy Slim, Armin Van Buure, Ferry Corsten, Marco V and many
more worldwide top artists. 
 
All this conection to music also moved him to world of studios, where the DJ can finally
create his own style and sounds. In 1998 he created his digital alter-ego named
BADBLOCK and started to put in the mix his ideas... After a good time of work the
results started to came up and some of these tracks were included in top seling
compilations in the brazillian market. In 2007 he is back to the studios once again and
his new tracks must be avaiable very soon. 
 
His outstanding talent was exposed to the world after his performance for 200.000
people during the Rio Parade in june of 2003, the biggest international parade in Latin-
america. In December of the same year, he also produced and played at the first dutch
event in brazil: Kremlin World Tour was a huge success with more than 5.000 party
people and he shared the deck’s with the dutch DJ’s Don Diablo and Astrid. The next
step in career was to move outside his home country borders, and so he did. During a
his first international tour he reached Europe with huge success on his gig’s in some of
the coolest club’s and events. 
 
The music business is also in his target. The DJ feeling put him in the spot in one of
the biggest companies on the music business: Sony Music. In 2004 he started his own
company, so NRG Music & Management made it ?s first steps. Recently, he just signed
a deal with Maxpop Music to release a series of new products together with Armada
Music, Armin Van Buuren ?s own label and on of the biggest dance labels in the world.
Always conected with the DJ Culture, Roger was invited by DJ Sound Magazine
(www.djsound.com.br) to be a correspondent in Rio de Janeiro and also found some
time to colaborate in one of the most popular websites in brazil (www.riofesta.com.br)
where he makes some music and event reviews, putting on the net his point of view of
the market. 
 
The end of this story is far away from the end, and a new chapter is writen every
night, after every scratch, every mix... It’s time to move forward and break the
brazillian borders and show the world whow long can he go.

Special thanks to Roger Lyra!!!

Miami Underground Movement proudly presents... "Alvaro Garfunk Making Moves @ M.U.M" - M.U.M Episode 13
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the "Miami Underground Movement."

At an early age in life, music and broadcast took much interest in the mind of Alvaro Garcia. By 1995, the urge to play vinyl combined with a used pair of Technics 1200's took Alvaro by storm. After spinning at many parties and gatherings, he made his way on a local pirate radio station. With this experience he later ventured on to a full studio production at Florida International University. He then attained his own radio show called "The Friday Pulse" which took listeners on a 2 hour journey each week, successfully spanning 4 years. This is where the progressive techno style of “Garfunk? came about. From then on he stretched beyond the airwaves into podcasts, internet streams, and playing live at venues in Miami, Orlando, and Rio de Janeiro.

Alvaro graduated F.I.U. with a B.B.A. only to rediscover his passion for music. To follow his calling, he attended SAE, the School for Audio Engineering. Graduating from SAE Miami proved to be a very challenging and rewarding experience. Recording, producing, and mixing are skills which came into full swing on current projects. Alvaro co-founded KG Miami Recordings with Eric Kraffman and they also published a weekly iTunes podcast which has attained global exposure and recognition. With guests like Timo Maas, Chaim, Phonique, Spirit Catcher and more, the KG Miami Podcast was named “New and Notable? and “Featured Podcast? in the iTunes Germany music store. KG Miami Recordings has been spreading its niche sound and has released tracks on digital distribution sites worldwide.

Special Thanks To Garfunk

ARIEL G & JESSE PEREZ

The partnership of Ariel G & Jesse Perez is the story of two young DJ’s/Producers from Miami, whose true passion lay in Electronic Music. As teenage acquaintances they quickly realized each other’s talents for remixing and producing quality Electronic Music. This natural bond fueled an interest in both Ariel and Jesse to help each other successfully further their music careers.

For several years Ariel G & Jesse Perez joined forces and began to take weekly Hip Hop gigs at different nightclubs and lounges throughout the Miami area. This made a long night of playing music an opportunity to discuss current (Electronic) projects they currently worked on individually. Around this time Ariel was also launching the first releases from his newly formed Label, Behold Recordings, featuring remixes from Jeff Bennett, Chris Fortier, and Saeed Younan. Jesse was then asked to remix Behold’s new release, and the rest is history.

Jesse Perez became one of the biggest artists on Behold, having almost every track he touched Chart top 40 and Ariel G took on a residency at one of world’s best known nightclubs, Club Space 34. Here he shared the booth with the likes of Sasha, Pete Tong, Sharam, Desyn Masiello, Nic Fanciulli, Sander Kleinenberg, Roger Sanchez, Steve Lawler, Ceballos, Oscar G, and many others. 

Together, Ariel G & Jesse Perez, form a duo that is unique with their experience, knowledge, and appreciation of all forms of music. It is not surprising to hear them push the envelope and drop an original 80’s Classic in one of their live sets to stir up the crowd. In a day where it is hard to depict refreshing new talent, they are at the forefront of the future.

Miami Underground Movement proudly presents... "Dj superstar Jelo Live Set" - M.U.M Episode 10

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



He has remixed pop stars, produced great tracks and performed around the globe. He is known as 'The people's DJ' and one of the fastest beatmatchers live on decks amongst Canadians. A character that is an electronic music kitchen sink that has become a trailblazing influence on the floors, the streets, in people's cars and homes. His live shows are simply dazzling. The DJ known only as Jelo is a leader in North America's electronic music movement and an innovator and ambassador to all things hard and funky in Canada. Since his days supplying the heartbeat of Toronto's dancefloors in Eastern Bloc records to the most obscure clubs in the cozy corners of his Country one thing has become obvious - Experiencing these awe-inspired and interactive sets, regarded legendary by many, is what makes the Jelo experience different than that found with the average DJ.

His straightforward 'take the bull by the horns' approach towards music and performing has kept Jelo amongst the top echelons of DJs in Canada. His style of presentation is unique and bridges the gap between audience and performer. Jelo becomes one with the audience and uses his uncanny abilities to read a floor, any floor, regardless of where he is. The young DJ brought about this awareness of 'new' music that is often refered to as 'banging house, electro, electro house and techno' to be a fashionable asset. Canada had no clue what hit them ! He was the first DJ in the Toronto clubs to usher in Speed Garage, Hard House, Nu Skool sounds and never sticking to one genre. He was constantly mashing things up. An innovator of moving sounds, even Eye Magazine awarded him the prestigious "most innovative DJ" award in their yearly DJ pools. Incorporating the spiciest elements of house, techno, breaks and rock blended with wild mixing abilities gives this DJ the distinction of all-around artist, entertainer, and performer. No stranger to travel he has dazzled thousands in Greece, England, Dubai, Taiwan, Coast to Coast in the USA and every major urban centre in his home country of Canada. There is not one venue that can resist Jelo, big or small, at anytime, anywhere.

Always maintaining the underground cool and respect of his peers Jelo refuses to compromise his musical principles. He exudes the authenticity of someone truly involved in a rhythmical love affair with music. The knowledge of artists and record labels is surpassed only by his natural drive to spread the joy these sounds has brought him. Always learning and always improving, the future for Jelo is guided by an awesome natural intensity, an astonishing musical dedication and a drive to change the world- one beat at a time.

Special thanks To Jelo!!!

Uros Umek is internationally acclaimed deejay and music producer from Slovenia, seducing the masses with his own music blend for more than a decade. Always on the look for new sounds and determined to challenge every existing cliché in music industry, he managed to define his own vision of vanguard techno. Sure, this would not happen without the support of his loyal peers who've joined him on the production platforms such as Recycled Loops, Consumer Recreation and Astrodisco, with which they defined "Slovenian techno sound" and successfully it as an important driving force on the global club scene.

He started his journey to the stardome as an excellent athlete, running between two baskets, but it was Euterpe the Muse of music and poetry that paved Umek's life-path. She got him totally unprepared, seduced him with no further notice, so he had no chance of getting out of her treads. He devoted his life, his heart, all of his passion and energy, to the sounds he discovered as a teenager. Pioneering the genre he became one of its most appreciated ambassadors with faithful worldwide audience simply known as The Father (of Slovenian techno).

Sleeping on past achievements was never Umek's thing. So it's nosurprise he decided for complete renovation of his sound and live set performance though being steady member of Top 100 DJ lists for almost a decade. The year 2007 marks beginning of a new chapter in his music career. After spending enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristic sound to the whole new level, he presented new international music therapy called 1605 – Sixteenofive. No doubt this was a very risky move. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he made the right decision at the crucial time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his production is supported by some top names in the industry.


FALLING IN LOVE
"As far as I remember, my first serious contact with music was trough pop artists such as Michael Jackson, Modern Talking, Falco and Yugoslavian singer Daniel, who rocked the Eurosong audience in the early 80's with the infamous hit single Djuli. (Laugh.) My mother is the one to blame. She bought me my first radio which I've listened to 'till exhaustion," apologizes Uros.

He brought his music passion to the next level few years latter, discovering the record button on his first double cassette player/recorder. "That enabled me to start my own music collection. I've recorded songs from Slovenian disco chart program, which presented top commercial tunes on weekly basis. I also managed to get my hands on some rare pirate cassettes with dance and techno tunes, but even few years after Slovenia became independent I didn't really know where to look for that modern electronic sounds that I liked so much. I didn't know anyone who listened to that stuff. Until I discovered Cool Night, specialized broadcast on Ljubljana's alternative student radio station. The Monday evening slot was run by original pioneers of electronic dance culture in Slovenia, Primoz Pecovnik (now boss of indie label Matrix Music), Brane Zorman aka MC Brane of Beitthron and Aldo Ivancic of Borghesia.


HE'LL BURN IN HELL
If there's any symbolism in the beginning of his clubbing career, DJ Umek won't escape burning in Hell for at least few decades: "I've told my mother I'm going to church to attend festive midnight mass on the Christmas night, but I was determined to visit MC Brane's party at Ljubljana's underground club K4 for the first time that night. I was expected to be home at 1 am, but wasn't 'till 4 am, so the curfew was imminent," Umek remembers popping his club cherry.

When the martial law eventually lifted and his mum decided to soften the regime, he found himself dealing with new challenge. He was allowed to go clubbing at the weekends but was expected to be home at 3 am. The trick was, as it usually is, that the first morning bus to his home neighborhood departed from the centre of the city fifteen minutes later. Solving problem wasn't easy, but being young and determined there was no problem for him running trough the half of the city twice a week: "Running few kilometers in the middle of the night after clubbing really wasn't as hard as it seems. I was training basketball at that time, so I was really fit." It's more than a decade since he traded career of basketball superstar for the nightlife debauchery. It would be interesting to see what he could have achieved as an athlete. Namely, he was selected for the junior national team just as he parted from the sports, and some of his former colleagues became key players in the top USA and European basketball leagues.


HE GOT HOOKED
The industrial designed K4 club in the basement of Student's Union HQ in the centre of Ljubljana is still considered to be Umek's resident club, although he's not an official resident deejay anymore. But since his most loyal fans are still gathering there, K4 remains the playground for testing new productions, concepts and sounds. "It's where everything started. This is the place where I've got in touch with first Slovenian electronic projects such as Anna Lies, Clox or Random Logic. Some of those guys were and still are important part of my life. It was Jure Havlicek who ultimately influenced my decision to get involved in professional music production. Gregor Zemljic is mastering all of my tracks. And I've founded my first band Mouse Trap with Uros and Vid, who have opened my eyes and ears to this culture."

It was his friend's Uros home where Umek got in touch with UK based pirate radio stations such as Green Apple/Dance Nation. "We picked up this programs via satellite dish. They played hardcore, breakbeat and techno non stop at the weekend, and even though we were recording it, we never left the house so we would not miss anything!" His friend was also the one who introduced him the Screen Tracker. "It was the very basic 8-bit resolution production tool with four mono channels, but that's how everything started. After I've finally managed to save enough money to buy proper sampler, the outside World ceased to exist. I've became totally obsessed with that box. I've spent up to sixteen hours a day working on that machine."


AND SO HE BEGAN
Although he's established technician, master of three decks and FX performances, it wasn't easy for Umek to get acquainted with those needles and mixers in the first place. You have to bear in mind his home country was part of former eastern block and most of the small clubs could only afford cassette and CD players at that time. "I could only dream of having my own decks in the beginning of 90's. As a single parent my mother could not afford that kind of expense. But I was lucky I've met few guys that recognized the talent in me and gave me the opportunity to start."

Umek was regular at club Palma matinees at that time. He spent most of the afternoons standing in the corner watching deejay mixing records, until one day resident DJ Alf offered him to finish his set. He seized the opportunity, somehow managed to get trough the night and they've agreed he can practice on that decks and mixer for an hour or so before the weekly matinee. "After I've conquered the technique and performed for a few times in Palma, I've got offered opening slot at Aldo's night in K4. It only paid as much to buy one CD, but it was a steady job and I really liked it." It was also the time when he decided to sell his collection of 200 CDs. "It's something I still regret, but it was the only way to earn money I needed to buy vinyl."

In the early 90s buying techno records seemed almost a mission impossible for someone living and working in Slovenia. Closest shop with that kind of music was in Germany, almost 500 kilometers away from Ljubljana. "We heard there are some records shops in Munich. So we've booked the weekly shopping bus, drove to Munich, and found that shops on our own. It wasn't easy but we've successfully finished that adventure. I've only had enough money to buy eight records, but this is how my collection started."


BUILDING THE SCENE
Germany was also the place where Umek got in touch with the rave scene. "It was an amazing experience, when I attended my first Technomania party with 15.000 revelers on seven floors placed in a hangar on the outskirts of Munich. And when I've entered twice as bigger Mayday arena for the first time I knew I want to be in that deejay booth one day. Few years later I was. Although I've thought to myself what the heck am I doing at that commercial masquerade in the backstage, I've changed my mind when I've finally stepped into the deejay booth. I've seen all those kids waving hands and shouting to me as being their god, and I'm sure some of them thought just the same as I did years before them. So, I've just smiled and performed one of the best sets of my career that can still be found on the internet."

Totally hooked on exploding ravemania, Umek and his peers started organizing bus transfers to rave parties in Germany. They were enyoing themselves and they were learning along the way. So it was just a matter of time when they decided to start putting up their own events. "The first one was total disaster," remembers Umek. "We've leased the local fireman's hall for the night but only managed to attract hundred of revelers. We were so broke, we couldn't even afford cleaning lady the morning after." But they could not be stopped by that debacle. They worked their way from event to event, got in charge of small club in the outskirts of Ljubljana and gradually became one of the leading promoters in the country.

"I still remember the illegal rave party we've organized in the countryside outside Ljubljana. It attracted surprisingly big mass of people and one of the main national newspapers reported of the incident, since we were dispersed by the police. And there was the local politician, real smart guy that made us all laugh: he stated that the cows in the nearby village stopped lactating ( i.e. giving milk) because of the stress induced by loud techno music. … No, I'm not kidding. This really was in the papers and can still be found in the archives."


THE BIG BREAK
DJ Umek made his name in Slovenia by hosting some of the best club nights in the country. Clubbing scene in Zagreb, Croatia was much stronger in the beginning of 90s, but it was him and his peers that changed that in just a few years by turning their home turf into most prolific party scene in the whole region. It was also the time of experimenting for Umek. He was mostly known as techno deejay, but loved to play underground house, too, especially at the after parties. And since he had the biggest collection of house records in Slovenia, he quickly became involved in building the house scene as well. At some point he was so much into house, he played four gigs a week, but only twice a month techno set. "I felt really suffocated as an artist with all that house, because I couldn't focus on techno, my main genre. One night at Ambasada Gavioli I decided I won't play house anymore. I grabbed some Chicago house records, pitched them, played really banging set and gave farewell to the club. I've returned to K4 and focus on techno again."

He returned to Ambasada Gavioli the next year, this time as a techno specialist. Since he was treated as the second resident, the favorite of club management always being his good friend Valentino Kanzyani, Umek had no competitive clause and could take bookings wherever and whenever he desired. Meeting top techno DJs from all over the world, establishing new friendships and gathering contacts he started performing at the best venues all over the World. Quickly he assembled crowds of faithful fans from Berlin to Tokyo, making impression as a great technician and programmer, but it was his special blend of music known as Slovenian Techno which has put him on the map as one of the tope names in the genre.

RECYCLED LOOPS
As the founding pillar of Slovenian electronic music scene Umek co-founded his first label in the mid 90s. Absense (and its sub-label Expire) was the first specialized techno label in the region, home to artists such as Umek, Anorak, Random Logic, Brother's Yard or Clox, quickly becoming popular with artists such as Laurent Garnier or Sven Väth because of its unique sound.

But it were the Recycled Loops in Earresistible Musick labels that really established Slovenian electronic dance sound as one of the driving forces on the global scale. The first mentioned joint venture with Valentino Kanzyani was and still is reserved for underground techno releases, while the second serves as a platform for hard, electronic house experiments. "The idea for starting our own label wasn't originally ours. The plan was to launch Next Wave imprint as Ambasada Gavioli offspring. Everything was set up, we've recorded our first record, but then suddenly Valentino terminated his partnership with the club management, and since I was performing there solely as a favor to him, I left too. But we were determined to release our production and decided to start the label on our own. The first release was distributed by Prime and since it sold good they've supported the launch of our own label. The name was picked up as a statement and description for the sound we were promoting at the same time. Namely, that was the time when we recycled old techno loops."

Umek is currently involved in running another two independent labels. He is one of four guys behind experimental Astrodisco project, which is Slovenia's unique answer to "minimal" explosion. The other one is the extension of his new 1605 – Sixteeenofive concept, which was launched in the early 2007 as international platform for promotion and development of new electronic sound structures and approaches to deejay performances. Guy Gerber, Extrawelt, Gregor Tresher, Billy Nasty, Mikkel Metal, Mike del Saar, Matthew Hoag, Alex Long and other artists are already involved.

WANT TO RECREATE?
Although not so known to international crowd Consumer Recreation project played major role in Umek's career and was really important for the progression of Slovenian electronic music scene, which is still developing nicely. The incentive which includes deejays Bizzi, Dojaja, Psiho & Plotz started as a promotion crew behind some major techno events in the country. It became even more important as the weekly radio show and label of the same name were lunched. "The basic idea behind this project was to promote the freshest stuff on the scene. At that time I was already household name in the global techno circuit, so I was sent a lot of promos which we played in our radio show and at the clubs. For example: our radio policy was to never play any record more than once, since we didn't even have enough time to play everything we wanted."

When Consumer Recreation joined forces with Taotech and some other guys Explicit Music was born. It brought the organization part of Slovenian party scene on the whole new level. Big open air festival series such as Meet Me and Sindustry, indoor parties such as EUrora and the string of smaller club nights marked the beginning of new millennium in the whole region, not only in Slovenia. In 2005 Explicit Music was dissolved and Futuristing Music crew stepped into its place continuing the legacy. The productions of FM crew include major annual events such as DiscoNautica gathering, Umek's solo action in Ljubljana's central park Tivoli and The Day of Electronica festival.

The Astrodisco project is original Slovenian answer to "minimal explosion". It's designed as a test-platform for creative multimedia boutique club nights wrapped into futuristic electronic sounds. It builds on the whole club experience, authentic music production, unique décor, exclusive VJ performances and unusual combinations of arts and crafts such as building real moving Astrobots.


LOOK AHEAD
The classic ambient of summer theatre designed by eminent architect Jozef Plecnik hosted Dan elektronike (The Day of Electronica) party, the launch pad for Umek's new project 1605 – Sixteeenofive in May 2007. New international sound development platform is designed to promote live performances of vanguard electronic artists. Gregor Tresher, Guy Gerber, Mikkel Metal, Extrawelt and leading Slovenian producers were hand picked to perform at this event.

The launch of 1605 – Sixteenofive platform marks the beginning of a new chapter in DJ Umek's music career as he spent enormous amount of time and artistic energy bringing his characteristics sound to the whole new level. No doubt this was a very risky move. But it was the only way for him to stay on top of the game. And it seems he made the right decision at the right time: the response to his new vision of electronic dance music from his peers, critics, media and most importantly his fans is great and his production is supported by some top names in the industry.

The third edition of annual Umek at Park Tivoli open air party which attracted more than 30.000 souls was also the right time and place to test the new equipment. On that occasion Umek put in motion his new digital setup. But this is just the beginning of his live performance refreshments that will be presented to the public once his long expected new artists album will finally be released.

Special Thanks To  Umek and Mr Urban Jeram

Aged only 25 James Talk is already one very busy lad. Hailing from the murkiest waters of Southampton, James has already achieved a tremendous amount at such a young age and it seems like things aren't slowing down either. Be it through his DJing or productions, causing mayhem on the world's finest dancefloors with the very best in funky tech and acid house is his specialist subject and it takes no mastermind to realize that Talk is the name and very much the answer.

Rewind ten years and James' addiction to this stuff we call house was already in its infancy. Allured by the acid basslines piercing their way through the sky every Saturday night from nearby fields and warehouses, James soon discovered that his attention was being drawn away from his eight times table and towards the likes of Prodigy and Underworld.

James' fascination rapidly reached new levels when at the age of 14 he purchased his first set of decks, followed soon after by his first DJ gig in a youth club in his home town. With many gigs at student nights soon to follow, these early steps paved the way for James to nurture his unique sound and gain a greater understanding of how to move a crowd.

Fast forward to the new millennium and James decided to try his hand at production with almost immediate success. His first track 'Eggs Are Cute' was signed by Nu-Republic Records, receiving major support from the planets leading DJs including James Zabiela and Sasha. Tracks packed with similar acid riffs and killer b-lines were soon to follow with three of them being instantly signed to Saved Records, following a chance meeting with label boss Nic Fanciulli. The first 'Love That Acid', reached no 10 in the UK Buzz Charts, whilst the other two 'House Rhythm' and 'Get Down', both received critical acclaim from all sides of the dance music press, with the latter appearing on Nic's Renaissance mix compilation. Further praise was given to James in a major interview when Fanciulli uttered just three words when asked who the next big thing in dance music was; "James Talk ' Amazing."

James has continued to work alongside individuals who have helped him advance musically by completing reworks for the likes of Buick Project, Audio Magnetics and Danny Howells, whilst a three track EP, under his Ri-Tek alias, has been signed to Phil Docherty's Pravo Recordings and gained support from the likes of John Digweed, Steve Lawler and King Unique. Recently James has been working with none other than Pete Tong in the studio, with the duo recently completing a remix of Wally Lopez for Pacha Records.

Such productions have also resulted in James' DJ diary fill up rapidly, only furthered by a superb guest mix on John Digweed's Kiss 100 show in February 2005. He has now played all over the UK and beyond alongside luminaries such as Nic Fanciulli, Lee Burridge, James Zabiela and Desyn Masiello and looks forward to upcoming gigs at Godskitchen, Renaissance, Fandango at Turnmills and New Years Eve for High Tide. James will finalise what has been a fantastic year by mixing the next CD in the Thinking Out Loud series, due for release at the end of 2005.

 Miami Underground Movement presents... "Superstar Dj Jelo @3 Decks" - M.U.M Episode 5

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



He has remixed pop stars, produced great tracks and performed around the globe. He is known as 'The people's DJ' and one of the fastest beatmatchers live on decks amongst Canadians. A character that is an electronic music kitchen sink that has become a trailblazing influence on the floors, the streets, in people's cars and homes. His live shows are simply dazzling. The DJ known only as Jelo is a leader in North America's electronic music movement and an innovator and ambassador to all things hard and funky in Canada. Since his days supplying the heartbeat of Toronto's dancefloors in Eastern Bloc records to the most obscure clubs in the cozy corners of his Country one thing has become obvious - Experiencing these awe-inspired and interactive sets, regarded legendary by many, is what makes the Jelo experience different than that found with the average DJ.

His straightforward 'take the bull by the horns' approach towards music and performing has kept Jelo amongst the top echelons of DJs in Canada. His style of presentation is unique and bridges the gap between audience and performer. Jelo becomes one with the audience and uses his uncanny abilities to read a floor, any floor, regardless of where he is. The young DJ brought about this awareness of 'new' music that is often refered to as 'banging house, electro, electro house and techno' to be a fashionable asset. Canada had no clue what hit them ! He was the first DJ in the Toronto clubs to usher in Speed Garage, Hard House, Nu Skool sounds and never sticking to one genre. He was constantly mashing things up. An innovator of moving sounds, even Eye Magazine awarded him the prestigious "most innovative DJ" award in their yearly DJ pools. Incorporating the spiciest elements of house, techno, breaks and rock blended with wild mixing abilities gives this DJ the distinction of all-around artist, entertainer, and performer. No stranger to travel he has dazzled thousands in Greece, England, Dubai, Taiwan, Coast to Coast in the USA and every major urban centre in his home country of Canada. There is not one venue that can resist Jelo, big or small, at anytime, anywhere.

Always maintaining the underground cool and respect of his peers Jelo refuses to compromise his musical principles. He exudes the authenticity of someone truly involved in a rhythmical love affair with music. The knowledge of artists and record labels is surpassed only by his natural drive to spread the joy these sounds has brought him. Always learning and always improving, the future for Jelo is guided by an awesome natural intensity, an astonishing musical dedication and a drive to change the world- one beat at a time.

Special thanks To Jelo!!!

First off, let us skip the obvious and tiresome formalities that become associated with a traditional DJ biography….Glenn Morrison lives and breathes electronic music. For the last five years he has been immersed in it. As a child he was heavily into the classical piano receiving every prestigious honor, including ARCT by the age of 14, furthermore playing competitively on a national scale. The electronica bug hit him soon after and between studies began to consume his life. He worked for several years at Release Records which aided his career in many ways. While at Release he also assisted other labels with A&R: Twisted Frequency (UK), Babylon Records (France) and DK Records (Holland). Last year he decided to follow his own direction, tired of clichés that labels so readily fall into he set up Morrison Recordings. MR is essentially a collection of forward thinking artists from around the globe which specializes in sublicensing to video/computer games, movies and film scores. Not only has Glenn completed commercial work for Kelloggs, Gain and General Mills, he is currently working with EA Sports, Rockstar Videogames, Sony, EMI, Virgin Music, Mercedes Benz, Motorola, Gain, General Mills along with many others, he has collaborated recordings with 16 Bit Lolitas, Deadmau5, Way Out West, Bruce Aisher, Dana Bergquist and Human Adams. Renowned for “Contact? and “Hydrology? (Mau5trap), “Cosmic Flight? and “Bass Experiment? (Hope), Glenn has recently remixed Tube & Berger's track “The Young & The Wild Ones? as well producing “Blue Skies with Linda?, “Rubberband?, “Circles? and “No Sudden Moves? (Armada). He has signed to the Cloud 9 Publishing Group as well as hosting his ITunes & Proton radio show “Sequence? bringing in DJ guests. He welcomes every form of music as long as there is merit to it. Glenn has had guest mixes on prestigious radio shows such as Ministry of Sound Radio, The Red Zone, Plattenleger, and FG 93.7. To top it all off this musical protégé graduated in Law at the University of Toronto and has just been offered a placement on the Business Management program (MBA) at Harvard University – who says DJ’s don’t have any time in their day…?

His music released on a variety of top labels like Renaissance; Josh Wink’s Ovum, Carl Cox’s Intec, Darren Emerson's Underwater, and his very own Tronic, only proves his flexibility in the studio. Similarly on the decks, Christian’s set is a cauldron of chunky grooves with loads of energy, 3 decks and effects.
