Judas & Ricky state they are on a mission to play music that reflects the real life, in all its horny, absurd, joyous and yes sometimes evil ways…with emphasis on the bass of course! So what you now hold in your hands is the glorious first vinyl offering from Sex Judas and Ricky >Sex according to Judas< telling the story as it is, blending the old school sounds of Chicago with a modern day longing for bass and ass, with a steaming sex toy edit by Tim from Paris to go.

Get Physical / Poesie Musik // Berlin (GER)
Meet Jacob Dilßner - a 24-year-old student and Berlin resident. At some point he took up DJing, and from there he made a song, you might have heard of it - 'One Day / Reckoning Song'. Of course we're talking about Wankelmut; the seemingly overnight underground to overground sensation that took the scene by surprise with a single track, no label and no promotion - proof that music can, in fact, speak for itself.
Fast-forward 8 months; Wankelmut has found himself at the center of a storm; with his track catapulting to number one across nearly all charts imaginable, across 8 European countries and the #1 spot at multiple platforms – Beatport, iTunes and the official single charts, simultaneously – a fact never achieved before, representing a huge step for dance music history.
Then, the 24 year old needed to decide what his next move would be beside constantly djing all over Europe. Musically, he would need to follow his chart killer with something of an art form, an expression, and a statement. So he turned to one of the oldest forms an electronic artist uses to convey their mood: the mix compilation.
Get Physical / Poesie Musik proudly presents: Wankelmoods Vol. 1.
Opening with the relaxed hustle of Acid Pauli's Dub Mix of 'El Zahir', original by Raz Ohara, Wankelmut sets the tone for the 80 minute mix; preparing our mood for the vibe of black light smoke - 'Lovework (DJ T. Remix)’. The mix continues in this fashion, gliding from one mood to another and pulling us along for the ride. By the time we get to 'We Don't Give Up The Boyz' by Hufschlag & Braun, we're warmed up and ready for Wankelmuts brand new exclusive remix of Jay Haze feat. Big Bully & Sven VT “Soul In A Bottle”, elegantly blended into one another showcasing his talent and style as a DJ. The mix reflects also his captivating brand of blending genres from deep house to techno into one cohoerent piece of art.
We'll leave the rest of the mix a mystery, a surprise of you will. Though, you can expect a few gems from andhim, Rodriguez Jr., Jonas Woehl, Âme and Adam Port and more to make their way into the mix; all beautifully stitched together with a deep and sexy vibe creating what can only be described as a Wankelmood.

Diynamic // Hamburg (GER)
The word Industrious is often overused when it comes to describing
artists in dance music and even when it´s correctly used it rarely a sign
of artistic quality. When it comes to Solomun however, it bang on the
mark and has no negative implications for artistic quality.
The Hamburg-based, Bosnian-born Croatian has played a major role in
redefining European house music in recent years via productions,
remixes and diskjockeying which take the very building blocks of house
and deftly reconstruct them with a decidedly modern twist.
This contribution to house is partly drawn from a hefty touring schedule
gracing the worlds finest clubs alongside an impeccable string of tracks
and remixes for the likes of Buzzin Fly, Freerange, Get Physical, Phil E,
Mobilee, Dessous, Compost, Four: Twenty, Noir Music, Supernature,
Rebellion and his own Diynamic and 2DIY4 imprint but it doesn´t stop
Having started Diynamic just five years ago alongside long-term friend
Adriano Trolio, Solomun has set about developing and nurturing his
outlets for music as much as the music itself. Now, Diynamic enjoys the
sort of reverence usually reserved for labels three times its age and has
been instrumental in allowing some of the new talents in electronic music
Stimming, H.O.S.H., Ost and Kjex, Uner, David August, DJ Phono, Liem
and Solomun himself are just a handful of the artists who have benefitted
from their output being wrapped in the label distinctive sleeves and the
Diynamic appeal shows no sign of waning.Despite a hugely hands on ad attentive role in developing Diynamic and
it´s roster, Solomun has also added the roles of promoter, radio host and
club owner to his list of job titles and each of these endeavours has seen
him succeed and create a formidable reputation for himself.
A weekly radio show syndicated to Ibiza Global Radio, Proton, Pulse
Radio, Russia Radiotakt and a lot more radiostations provides yet
another platform for some Solomun passion, and his EGO Club in
Hamburg has been the logical step on from creating some of the best
parties in the notoriously competitive club scene in the city.
These extensions of his own recording and DJ career certainly show
complete dedication to his DIY cause and the music that fuelled its
necessity but the formula for the success of each of these extra-
curricular activities can be attributed purely to talent.
This talent is pretty unquestionable, too. From the army of high profile
fans through to the critically acclaimed 2009 debut LP, Dance Baby,
which saw the likes of Mixmag, Electronic Beats and even itunes list in
their top albums of the year, the responses to Solomun material are
If the industry and press mean nothing, then just look to the dancefloors
of Watergate, Warung Beach Club, Studio80, D-Edge or EGO where
Solomun keeps countless clubbers enraptured with his sounds at
Diynamic residencies on a regular basis.
Despite an intimidating amount of roles to balance, Solomun does so
much in the same way as he manages the plethora of influences on his
music, with a deft touch, a smile on his face and real honest commitment
to Doing It Yourself.
