Hot Creations / HOTCO45
Hot on the heels of his smash hit Get Beasty EP released in February this year, Hot Creations favourite Patrick Topping is back with another superb release in the running to be his most successful yet! The Boxed Off EP features three dance floor bombs, just as weve come to expect from talented youngster, all with that signature Patrick Topping sound yet each completely unique. Forget is potentially his biggest track yet, a staple of Jamies current sets its truly infectious and set to be feature heavily at WMC this year. Boxed Off is menacing, rumbling & dark heads-down affair whilst Schwicked is another hooky as hell bomb from Patrick. Another killer three track EP from Patrick Topping, who seems like he can do no wrong at the moment!

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.

Moon Harbour Recording - Desolat - Leipzig (DE)
From Desolat over Remote Area to Moon Harbour via Düsseldorf – that’s how Arado’s story
can be described in as few words as possible. At least when you try to reduce it to only the
most important of his releases. The DJ’s story is not even less exciting and, next to German
premium clubs such as Cocoon and Watergate, includes bookings in the world’s places-to-be
such as Space Ibiza including its legendary closing final, Tenax in Italy, Belgium Café
D’Anvers and Moodstock Festival, WMC in Miami as well as appearances for People Like Us
and Bad Boys Club. It’s quite hard to believe that the first page of this young story of success
has just been written in 2009.
Arado is the rare proof that almost everything is possible if only you come up with the track at
the right time. And so with the help of „Uganda Express“ signed by Loco Dice for his Desolat
label, he kick-started into an international career that did not decrease in speed since then.
After following releases on labels such as All Inn and Dame Music this finally led to an EP on
Matthias Tanzmann’s Label Moon Harbour that even took him on board of their booking
squad. Whether in the beginning in partnership with Den Ishu or nowadays in collaboration
with Italian Marco Faraone, Arado simply knows one thing or two about how to rock the Deep
& Tech House Floors worldwide. His raw, driving grooves with an undeniable Chicago impact
seem to enjoy the support of the international DJ elite since the very beginning.
2011 has already prepared new releases on Etruria Beat and Four:Twenty as well as
remixes for artists such as Martinez and Butch. It’s still written in the stars where it will lead
the German Rheinlander, but one thing is already sure: his journey has just begun... so stay

Keinemusik | Souvenir | Saved // Berlin (DE)
When one could assume, &ME entered the House and Techno world somewhat out of the
blue, it is due to his sublime modesty that?s already captured in his alias. Coming from
Hamburg to Berlin in 2004 his talent was soon recognized by folks like DJ Hell or DJ T. who
hired him as their co-producer.
Besides, he was playing the clubs (national and international) all week every week and
putting his effort in remixes for the likes of Roxy Music, Tiefschwarz or Anthony Rother. But
as soon as he dropped his first solo productions, he finally made himself a name in a quite
unparalleled way. “F.I.R.” – his first release on keinemusik, a collective of Berlin based DJs
and producers, he helped founding in 2009, was a massive clubhit, but in the end not much
more than a foretaste of things to come. Releases and remixes on Front Room, Souvenir,
Rebirth, Liebe*Detail, Saved etc. followed, his reputation as a gifted producer and DJ
extraordinaire spread even more into international realms, and that?s where he stands right
now, as his blend of Techno and soulful Housemusic took incredible shape: Many new
projects in focus and clearly visible as one of the most unique and original figures in the

PoleGroup Recordings / Planet Rhythm // Oviedo (ES)
The biggest challenge a musician or producer of any musical type or style has to face, whether they like it or not, is to see whether their work can create a path that other artists will follow or lay the foundation for the work of other artists. Juan Rico, the Asturian known within the scene as REEKO, is well aware of this.
Born in Oviedo (Asturias) in 1981, Reeko is a dj who has rapidly attained the recognition other artists have taken a long time to gain. In his case it’s not been a matter of chance or coincidence, but the result of his innate and incredible capacity to be prolific, alongside his obsession for perfection. He marks is his birth as a dj about 1997, but it wasn’t until his first release in 2002 under the Swedish label Emergence that he became known professionally.
There is no need to name all the aliases that Juan Rico has used to release the diverse artistic sensations which flow from him, but these are characteristic which define his personality and are a part of REEKO himself. Producing and performing under different names allows him to concentrate fully on each individual event by devoting himself completely to an idea or style to which he is totally faithful, putting aside for a moment sounds and influences that don’t belong in the particular character which he is mutating into at the time.
The result is a knock out. Under the name of REEKO he has released huge techno productions which have charted and been played by the best djs in the world, right from the first tracks and EPs for labels as reputable as Theory, Main out, Integrale Muzique, Deafmosaic, Inceptive, Rxxistance, Trece Records, Symbolism, Planet Rhythm, Warm up or Palicavonzvreca.
Reeko created Mental Disorder, his “pathological” label/laboratory, in 2003 under which he has released 12 works of ever increasing quality. The latest (The Day After, 2010) received a wonderfully warm welcome as one of the best releases in Hispanic Techno of the year. Artists such as Gennaro le fosse, Pacou, Oscar Mulero have collaborated with his very personal label.
Next came the label Evidence in 2005, where he opens up to his passion for the darkest and sickest part of the human mind. He looks deep within the human psyche where most of us would never go or dare explore. That is where the laconic, aggressive and totally sweeping sound that characterises him stems from. Reputable artists who have published with Evidence are Function, Paul Bailey and Trolley Route, to name a few.
He has received great praise for his collaborations with the Humano project and the Belgian label MusicMan, home of the purest of European techno. During this last decade, his most outstanding performances have been in Awakenings and Monegros 2005, Aquasella, Tresor and his Brazil tour of 2008.
The story so far reaches a climax when Reeko joins the cream of techno: the PoleGroup, formed in 2008. On the frontline of this group is Oscar Mulero, indisputable leader of the darkest Iberian techno, joined by the Asturian duo Exium and the surprising and experienced Christian Wünsch. The most recent addition to this team is Architectural, someone who will give us lots and lots to talk about.
Reeko finds himself, unexpectedly but deservedly, among the elite of Hispanic techno.
