ARNO GONZALEZ / CAMILLE RODRIGUEZ / TIMID BOY
Timid Records / TIMID52
After a first LP supported by various artists such as Rone, Rodriguez JR, Ark, Electric Rescue, Morpheus or Laurent Garnier, Timid Records is proud to announce Arno Gonzalez's second album: « The Delivery Boy ». More personal (no featuring this time) and more direct in the producing processus, Arno tells us pieces of his own story: a come back from a gig in Brest (Back From Vauban), a crazy sunday afternoon (Domingo Dance), a trip to Japan (Kimura), a train ride to Charles De Gaule Airport (Angers/CDG),he also recalls with a dose of sorrow the cycle effects of buzz and mode in music (Less Was More), the old time Techno (The Break), noisy and synthetic Funk (The Message) or the crazy run of a delivery boy (The Delivery Boy) which will be soon clipped by the motion designer Smoh.
The most surprising thing after a first listening is the work on the texture and vibes which give consistency to the whole album sailing between electronica, inspired techno and house grooves.
Finally, Camille Rodriguez and Damien « Timid Boy » Almira give us 2 stylish and efficient remixes which will find, for sure, the path to best djs turntables.
Enjoy your meal !
Plaisir records / PLA002
The Adventure continues for Plaisir Records with his 2nd Release made by Ali Moghrani with a remix from Faster!
Here, you're going to get into a twisted club atmosphere where basslines will catch you forever. Vertige' will raise your feelings and make you go between melancholia and full energy at the same time, with the coexistence of violins, round bass and disconstructed voice. Inconnue' will bring sun into your mind and your smile will instinctively appear, synth is growing slowly between the beats to get as high as possible.
Vertige Faster remix' makes you enter directly in its sweaty mental mood from beginning to end with its voices manipulation and its acid component that makes your mind disconnect from reality.

Im a monster, an animal
A fucking disaster
Thats what I am
A mess of feelings
Constantly fighting my instincts
To fit with society
But I keep failing
Running to escape
To keep attention on me
Crying for your compassion
While I keep killing my ego
There is no excuse
Coz my mind is ill
I feel humanity inside me
As I realize
Im nothing without you
I do nothing but pain to you
Im a monster
Or just another human being
Mobilee Records - Berlin (DE)
Anja Schneider is the mobilee records founder, broadcaster, internationally renowned DJ and
producer once labeled a "perpetual motion machine", and one of the hardest working individuals
in the business.
From her beginnings in radio to the 'Hi Five' anniversary year of mobilee, her ascension through
the ranks has been fuelled by her strong work ethic, sharp tastemaker instinct, charming
personality and innate musicality. Starting out as a producer for KissFM, Anja became a radio
persona in her own right in 2000 for Fritz Radio. Armed with an engaging presentation style and
impeccable taste, Anja's 'Under the Blue Moon' program – which still airs to this day – resonated
with Berlin's music-loving masses and propelled her forward into a career as a club DJ.
After her first forays into production in 2004, Anja joined forces with Ralf Kollmann to found
mobilee records the following year. Anja's keen ear defined the emergent imprint through its early
releases, unearthing talented newcomers such as Sebo K and Pan-Pot, and paving the way for
her celebrated mobilee debut with Sebo, Rancho Relaxo. Harnessing her unique interest in
collaborative creativity, Anja's list of studio partners has grown to include the likes of Paul
Brtschitsch, Marco Resmann, and Lee Van Dowski. Anja's 2008 opus, her debut album Beyond
the Valley, was released to critical acclaim, with tracks "Belize" and "Safari" dominating Charts
and dancefloors worldwide. She followed this with Deseo, mobilee's 50th release, and a pair of
storming tech house EPs in 2010, iThought and Pushin'. "Imagination", a co-production
between Anja and And.Id, featured on Heidi's Jackathon compilation for Get Physical Music in
early 2011, and the remainder of Anja's year will largely be devoted to her highly anticipated
second album, which is due for release in 2012. Alongside her original work, an extensive list of
remixes for labels such as Dessous, Crosstown Rebels, and Diynamic now line the annals of her
As a label head Anja has focused not only on discovering fresh talent, but also on cultivating and
developing the mobilee roster, pushing artists to challenge themselves and developing their
careers as DJs and musicians. Under her guidance, mobilee and its sister label Leena Music
have grown into one of Berlin's most-watched staples, with a close-knit collection of producers
and musicians that carve out a distinct sound in a city teeming with electronic music.
Widely regarded as one of the world's most respected DJs, Anja has traveled to almost every
corner of the globe, making her mark at world-renowned clubs such as Fabric, Fuse, Rex, and
Goa Madrid, as well as holding down residencies with Berlin's Weekend and Watergate clubs.
With ears honed through years of experience, Anja's achievements as a producer, DJ and label
head are far from peaking. Her development as a one-of-a-kind artist and businesswoman is just
the start of what we can expect from Anja's evolution, as she builds mobilee into the defining
platform that stands in testament to the vision, passion, and love of music that drives her
extended mobilee team in all that they do, and all that will come.
Ilian Tape / Tresor Records / Munich (GER)
Diynamic / Cadenza / Visionquest // Lleida (ES)
UNER is one of the most important names of the new generation of Spanish electronic music producers. His musical training allowed him to develop at a very early age a different dance music concept, based on the pleasure for harmony and the search for a unique, personal sound. This has lead him to edit for labels like Diynamic (where he's an active member and has edited some of his most celebrated works, "Raw Sweat" and "Bassboot", one of the most RA Top Charted Tracks in 201 1 ), Cadenza (making his debut on the label with "Pallene" and "Cocoua", most-hyped UNER's tracks ever), 2020 Vision, Get Physical, Defected or CR2 to mention a few. UNER has earned the respect of the music industry with talent and work: names like Luciano, Carl Cox or Laurent Garnier play his music on a regular basis; clubs like Berlin's Watergate or Space Ibiza book him oftenly and his number of fans increases by the day; all of this because of what he does best, his music.
Apart from traveling around the world as a Dj, in 2011 UNER presented his live gigs, an audiovisual concept in which he uses state-of-the-art software and hardware (from iPads to mini midi keyboards) to explore his most solid, personal side. The artistic expansion of the Catalonian producer will go on during the following months with the creation of several artist albums where he'll express his way of understanding electronic music from a musical point of view and from the center of the dancefloor. UNER's bound to reach higher tops with the only limit of his music... so there's still loads to see, listen and dance.
UNER es uno de los principales nombres de la nueva generación de productores españoles de música electrónica. Su formación musical le permitió, desde muy joven, desarrollar un concepto de música de baile diferente, en el que predomina el gusto por las armonías y la búsqueda de un sonido especial y personal. Eso le ha llevado a editar por sellos como Diynamic -del que forma parte activamente y donde ha editado sus trabajos más exitosos hasta la fecha, "Raw Sweat" y "Bassboot", uno de los tracks más charteado en Resident Advisor durante el 201 2-, Cadenza (haciendo su debut con "Pallene" y "Cocoua", dos de sus tracks que más expectación han tenido nunca), 2020 Vision, Get Physical, Defected o CR2 por nombrar algunos. UNER ha sabido ganarse el respeto de la industria musical a base de talento y trabajo: nombres como Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox o Luciano pinchan de forma habitual su música; clubes como el Watergate berlinés o Space Ibiza son habituales en su agenda de actuaciones y su numero de fans aumenta día tras día; todo ello gracias a lo mejor que sabe hacer, su música.
Además de recorrer medio planeta como Dj, en 2011 UNER estrenó sus actuaciones en formato live, un concepto audiovisual en el que emplea el sofware y hardware más innovador (desde iPads a mini teclados midi) para explorar su lado más personal y contundente. La expansión artística del catalán continuará en los próximos meses con la creación de varios álbumes de artista en el que expresará su modo de ver la música electrónica, desde un punto de vista musical y desde el centro de la pista de baile. UNER no ha tocado techo aún y el límite lo pone su música, por lo que aún nos queda mucho por ver, escuchar y bailar.
