Known as a motherfucker on the >Uggav< since his early teens, he emerged in the underground sounds of Judea and never looked back. 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.
Plaisir Records / PLA001
1st release of new French label Plaisir Records by the artist Zendid, with a VID remix !!
Support: tINI, Faster, Anthea, Ada Kaleh
Here, you're going to get into a serious classy bunch of tracks, where melodies interlace with round beats and basslines. The Wood Lesty's voice will enter your brain and will never leave it. The cherry on the cake (already rather tasty) is Vid Reconstruction Mix: a little 15 minutes diamond where he settles gradually his talent, involving the famous voice of the original mix with a compulsion of claps to end in second part of the remix with angelic choirs deserving of the most beautiful opera

Just Jack / Upon You / Saved Records // Amsterdam (NL)
ONNO is a revered Dutch DJ and producer who has been steadily rising to the top of the pile since 2001. In the ensuing years, he has released a number of well-received EPs, most recently the Beatport top- ping ‘Paragroove’ on Moon Harbour, which is also one of the top 3 most charted artists on influential site Resident Advisor. ONNO now continues to produce for other top labels including Get Physical, Souvenir, Saved and International DJ Gigolos. The sound that he now weaves at clubs and festivals across Europe is a bass heavy one with plenty of interlocking house grooves all heavily reliant on big bottom ends, and has received much support from the likes of MANDY, Reboot, Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann and many more.
One of the most important benchmarks for ONNO was hooking up with Upon. You Records. Since first releasing on the imprint, the star’s music has made its way into all the right record bags and have seen his demand as a DJ continue to grow. Forever joining the dots between styles and proving himself to be a diverse DJ that can spin in small basements as well as sunny rooftops, ONNO has been rewarded for his skills by being installed as a resident at both Amsterdam club Studio 80 and the prestigious Ushuiai club out in Ibiza. So too has he clocked up plenty more gigs around the world including at Panorama Bar, Watergate and Bar 25 in Berlin, D36 in New York, Electric Pickle in Miami, Beatport Beta Lounge in Denver and Glow in Lima.
The future looks just as bright for ONNO: as well as continuing to spin in the best clubs around the world, so too has ONNO many more productions in the pipeline, each of which will continue to showcase his own unique house style.
Gomma / SSHO / BBE // Paris (FR)
It was DJing that gave 36-year-old Dimitri his start more than a decade ago, when the European radio station CFM hired him to mix records on the air. Because of what he describes as a lack of dance remixers in France, his career in radio led to his being asked to rework tracks for various artists, among them Björk, New Order, and the Brand New Heavies. Along the way he was hired by chic fashion designers like Chanel, Gaultier, and Lagerfeld to put together soundtracks for runway shows and boutiques.
"What happened was that I started DJing and then there were more and more tools -- technical tools -- available to us DJs that would allow us to make more creative things and eventually to make our own music without actually knowing how to play a particular instrument. With the advent of samplers and other machines at a budget that made them accessible in the mid '80s, we started making our own tracks. I was also learning the process of how a track is constructed by doing remixes for people. Finally, I was able to produce my own tracks."
Enzo was born in 1990 in the French Alpes. Thanks to his dad, he discovered little by little music, especially Jazz and Blues with artist such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Sonny Boy Williamson…For him, Jazz is the basis of all kind of music. At first, Enzo was a Rap Underground lover but at the age of 16 he discovered what was House music when he bought his first records from Defected In The House Label.
He found really interesting the fact that he could find some jazzy touch in House music but also the mix with percussions and beats.
In 2009, his point of view of House music knew a turning point when Enzo heard for the first time a mix of Nima Gorji. This was exactly what he was looking for. He started then to follow Nima’s style, discovering this underground atmosphere.
Everything came into real in the Summer 2011, when Enzo worked hard to pay his first CD players and mixer. He set up in his house a small area where he could play and record his first mix.
GET PHYSICAL / Morris Audio / Hi Freaks / Kindisch / Keno Records / Berlin / Germany
David Keno / Morris Audio / Hi Freaks / Kindisch / Keno Records / Berlin / Germany
Swiss born David Keno began his musical life learning classical instruments such as guitar and drums when he was 12. After playing in various rock bands he discovered his love of electronic music. He bought a drum machine and an old Korg synthesizer and started to experiment. Over the next few years he developed his skills and eventually the guys from the Pocketgame label loved his melodic productions so much that they signed him for his first release: Vernis - Bubble Bath EP which came with a fantastic Trentemoeller remix.
From there his career took off. He has released on labels such as I220, Zenit, Meerestief, Karateklub, ELP and provided remixes for Samuel L. Session, G-Man, da Fresh, Robert Drewek, Hugg&Pepp, DK8 and even 80ies heroes Trans-X who wanted a remix for their "living on video" that came out on ZYX Music.
The next step in his career was to launch his own label and in January 2007 Keno Records 01 was released with huge success. "Liquid" went on to be found in the playlists of many DJs.
In David Keno's DJ sets or also as a Livect his musical range goes from minimal techno to house. Very floor-oriented but often with a certain melodic touch. Maybe these are his roots from the 80ies shining through.
Ostgut Ton // Berlin (GER)
Kobosil‘s first vinyl release, his remix for Barker & Baumecker‘s "Silo", released on Ostgut Ton at the beginning of 2013, impressed with it‘s punishing drive, subtle, hypnotic synth sounds, escalating hi-hats and crystal clear production and spawned all kinds of speculation who might be behind the previously unknown Kobosil name. Then his debut 12“ emerged just a few months after the "Silo" remix. With influences ranging from stark, raw machine techno, dark, purist, pumping acid, noise and distortion, the 4 bold tracks on this EP made a whole range of djs pick and play different titles from the 12“ and stand out productions "Emil" and "Think & Think" made their mark on techno dance floors way beyond Berlin. Another 4-track 12" on Ostgut Ton's sister label Unterton soon followed and the track "Osmium" from this EP was licensed for the FABRICLIVE 73 CD mixed by Panagea.
Simultaneously Kobosil introduced his dj sets as clubs started booking him on the strength of his first two releases alone and reports of fresh, no bars techno, informed by a whole range of electronic music styles, skilled mixing and well constructed sets followed. Kobosil had arrived and it wasn't long before he made his debut on the Berghain Klubnacht floor. Hailing from Neukölln, Berlin, the only 22 year old Kobosil combines his talent with trained instruction, just about to finish a BA in audio production, which he studies since 2010, this young producer knows his stuff. An avid vinyl collector, he has an almost nostalgic, passionate approach to music, combined with a truly futuristic outlook on where techno is heading. Deeply rooted in classic origins but reinvigorated and pushing sound frontiers and limits.
Next for Kobosil is an EP for Marcel Dettmann's MDR Label to be released early next year, a live set, which he intends to premier before the end of this year and a second release on his own -no label- which will undoubtedly further his trademark sound and will be done in the own particular way of this charming but headstrong dj/producer.
Ovum / Strictly Rhythm / Minus // Philadelphia (US)
"Some people get pigeonholed as being into just one thing’, Wink remarks, ‘I hate that. When there are rules, it doesn't become art, and it's not fun. I've learned that you can't please everybody, so I'd rather be concerned with making good art, and the people that like this art will stick with you."
Philadelphia born and based Josh Wink is one of the true pioneers of techno, house and allied st
