ROACH MOTEL / DJ PIERRE
Get Physical Music / GPM276
'Wildpitch I love you...' "During the last few years, I keep on getting videos and messages sent to me of DJ's like 'playing your old Roach Motel mate in DC10' and 'I'm at P-Bar and the place is going mad to Wild Luv'. It was our homage to that classic DJ Pierre sound of the early 90s. A sound that inspired a genre and was the soundtrack to THE greatest club in the world of the 90s, New Yorks 'Sound Factory'. Around 5am the resident DJ, Junior Vasquez, would take the music darker with a vortex of stabs, reverse squelches and samples that had a decade earlier graced the Paradise Garage in there OG form. 'Wild Luv' has lasted the test of time and we hope you will enjoy our 2014 remix and Dubs and the remixes (including a real banger by the creator himself DJ Pierre)... 'Wild Pitch we will always love you'.-Terry Farley

Runtomorrow / Signature // Pau FRANCE (FR)
In his productions or during his gigs, his tones and mixes have only a single objective: to take us very gradually on his hypnotic, stretchable and sensual universe without ever denying the fundamental of the "groove".
Even if his influences are more House, or more Disco Feivo likes playing with the styles, varying the pleasures...
His objective : " let us with no other choice than dance when he's on decks "
Just Jack / Catapult Records // Cardiff (UK)
The Organ Grinder has been hiding in the musical shadows for some time, all the way back to 1995.
With jungle music at its peak and the airwaves alive with pirate radio stations The Organ Grinder aka Cayne Ramos started his musical education, and that’s what you’ll hear in his music production and DJ sets; a deep understanding of musical heritage and more importantly an understanding of what people want to hear on the dance floor. Anyone who fell for the sound of garage music between 1999 and 2005 may have already enjoyed a night out with Cayne as he took to the stage as MC Chico hosting for distinguished acts such as Tuff Jam, Mike Ruff Cut Lloyd, EZ and Dream Team.
It was in 2006 Cayne that put down the mic and turned his hand to DJing hosting a regular UK funky night pushing the emerging sounds from that scene in The South West. Fast forward to 2010 and Cayne has his first celebrated release ‘Something New’ on Doc Daneeka's Ten Thousand Yen imprint as one half of production duo Didz and Chico. From this point in time Cayne makes the decision to go solo in his production work and launches himself as The Organ Grinder. His first solo release ‘Obsession/New Age People’ was released on Cardiff’s Catapult Records and gained him huge kudos points with an international DJ fraternity with plays from Move D, Ryan Elliot, Steffi and Jackmaster. He quickly followed up with a second release on Catapult Records the anthemic ”I Don’t Love You” featuring the vocal talent of Jessy Allen who also features prolifically on the recent High Contrast album ”The Agony and the Ecstasy”. These releases brought some serious attention to The Organ Grinder and he was soon invited to play his carreer highlight gig at Berlin's Panorama Bar. He currently has a collaborative release out on Addison Groove’s newly launched Lost in Translation imprint this time with Chesus of CRST titled ‘Audio Porn’.and has just released an ep on "Gerd's" 4lux label titled "Enoonmai"

Get Physical // Stockholm (SWE)
After the uber-successful years of 2008 and 2009 Tiger Stripes felt a need for a new challenge and set out to create a brand new studio album in 2010, and the idea was that it is not to be something anyone was expecting from him. He has always been looking at alternative styles of music to merge with his sound, but after the release on Adam Beyers Drumcode label he felt inspired to make something not entirely based around what happens on the dance floor. So, turning away remix work, all his time was taken up by working on brand new material for this album... or so he said…
He still found the time to squeeze in a nowadays rare remix for the SOUNDZ label, “The 4:08 To Paris” by Tangerine Dream’s front man Conrad Schnitzler, of whom he is a great fan for many years. The remix is a fantastic piece of music that also gives you a taste of what is to be expected from him this year, it was released in March 2010 with fantastic feedback: Kompost’s Michael Reinboth, Eric Kupper, Mousse T, Axwell and Nick Warren, who called it his “record of the year so far”.
All of a sudden there were also some new raw tech house cuts that needed a home, and after some intense bidding and negotiating, the massive ‘Play For Me’ & ‘Infant House’ were finally signed to Steve Lawler’s VIVA Music, to form an EP due out in June 2010 on iVAV. Road tested by the man himself, Steve Lawler says this is BIG! And we couldn’t agree more. There was also deeper cut titled ‘You Are Here’ which was signed to the Material label in Greece, a label is known for it’s excellent underground releases and for making vinyl releases of various colours resembling various materials, such as ‘Glue’, ‘Glass’ and ‘Saf’. VA025, the “Orange EP - Material Groovers Vol.2” featured Tiger Stripes together with tracks from Wally Lopez, Strict Border and Simone Tavazzi.
Tiger Stripes Remix of “Samba” by Jesper Dahlback was released early June on Jesper’s International Sound Laboratory (ISL) label. The techno maestro also behind SVEK, DK and other seminal techno imprints is still keeping things very much Scandinavian, with forthcoming collaborations with Alexi Delano and Jori Hulkkonen, and Tiger Stripes who works out of Jesper’s Globe Studios complex, was a natural choice for this underground tech-house monster.
Then there was ‘Make It House’, the amazing big-room tech-house track signed to Mark Knight’s Toolroom label, which since late 2009 was entangled in sample clearing spaghetti, but is now finally cleared by Francois K’s Wave Music label. Re-credited Tiger Stripes Vs Exodus it’s featuring samples from Exodus “Together Forever”, it’s a huge production, now tweaked and re-mastered and it’s massive!
Based in the Globe Studio complex in Stockholm, Mikael Nordgren aka Tiger Stripes sits surrounded by a grand selection of both brand new and classic pieces of studio electronica. Perhaps you can say this is symbolic of the music he produces, red hot dirty tech-house and futuristic deep techno with both eyes aimed at the horizon, but always with a great respect for what the masters did back when house was born.
Tiger Stripes’ collaboration with Jerome Sydenham “Stockholm Go Bang!” in 2006 on Ibadan was in some ways a milestone, in that it marked the start of a transition from the more organic deep house where Tiger Stripes set out in 2004, and the slick electronic sound he is known for today. In one fell swoop it earned him fans in both the house and techno communities, and in a way reconnected him to his roots in the darker techno scene of his earlier career pre 2004, when he was recording as D’Malicious on Francois K’s Wave Music.
Tiger Stripes was at the time running one of the most respected club nights in Stockholm, Go Bang!, where for some years only the best and most prolific DJs and live acts were invited to play, including Claude VonStroke, François K, Osunlade, Jerome Sydenham, Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Dixon, DJ Gregory, Lindstrom & Âme to mention just a few. The mix of styles presented by the DJs playing records at the club all became a great source of inspiration for his productions and remixes, but ultimately production work took over and without time to keep running the club it was stopped, but re-emerged to great acclaim on a few different occasions.
In 2005/2006 Tiger Stripes Remixes of underground acts like Blaze (Most Precious Love); Sydenham & Ferrer (Sandcastles), King Britt (Our Time) and DJ Gregory (F2) was followed by a few major remixes for Positiva and Southern Fried along with releases on house labels like Ibadan, Slip N Slide, Large and King Street, who ultimately released his first album (Safari) in 2007, but the path he chose after that was a different one.
The soft transition back to a more electronic based house sound was a move that proved extremely successful for Tiger Stripes, and in 2007 his new deep and techy sound had been picked up on by a new set of DJs the world over, and releases for labels like Dialect and Liebe Detail paved the road for “the big switch”. Signing his first EP (Mad At Me EP) to legendary uber-label in the tech-house world, Get Physical, was an enormous step up in terms of visibility, and that move created a new platform for him to work from, both as a producer and as a DJ. His sound was edgy, electronic and catchy and the effect was amazing. All of a sudden, his fans included the cream of tech-house DJs and his EP shot to the top of the Beatport charts and after that the snowball effect took over.
Tiger Stripes did remixes for Dennis Ferrer, Joey Negro, Marcus Enochson, Ten City and of course Face Action. Together with Jerome Sydenham he took on Faze Actions mighty ‘In The Trees’ alongside Carl Craig as part of Juno’s exclusive anniversary selection of remixed singles releases.
A second EP on Get Physical (Blackroom Entertainment EP) in 2008 was a natural progression and his credibility and status as a cutting edge underground producer and DJ was steadily rising, and the labels came calling again for remixes. No less than 3 remixes for DATA in that short period, amongst which the award winning Citroen car advert theme “Echo”, by Luke Dzierzek, is particularly worth a special mention. This in addition to mixes for Roger Sanchez on Stealth, Nic Fanciulli & Zoo Brazil on Renaissance, Ida Engberg on John Dahlback’s Pickadoll label, Kaskade on Ultra and of course the massive remix of Lee Jones “Aria”, which alone went onto almost 10 compilations!
Tiger Stripes started an extensive studio rebuild project in 2008/2009, which after completion gave him much more freedom to produce the music he was thinking of next, a heavier techno based sound, and in 2009 a 3rd Get Physical EP (Me & I EP) was released, and loved notably by superstars such as Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, John Digweed, Sasha and Adam Beyer, who decided it was time for a Tiger Stripes release on his legendary techno imprint Drumcode. The “Eden EP” was released in the second half of 2009 and the rest is history…
Poker Flat Recordings - Zurich (SUI)
Both children of the illustrious nightlife of trend capital Zurich, Adrian Flavor and Samy Jackson have made a name for themselves with their Rakete parties, held mostly at the übercool Hive club, as well as many other locations in and around Switzerland. They have played and rocked most clubs in their home country, as well as being booked to play throughout Europe. Whenever people talk about a DJ set from the two turntable wizards, they speak about the moment "it" happened. They have a talent to play music which inspires and leads electronic trends, rather than follows them. Added to this, they are famous for their love of the party - frequently being the last to leave the club. As dedicated music lovers and passionate entertainers, it was a natural progression for the duo to turn their appetite for music and endless parties into producing for themselves. Besides having recently mixed the compilation for the 5 years Hive Club Anniversary, their releases can be found on Stil vor Talent, Poker Flat and Hive Audio.

Lola Ed / Just Jack / Liebe Detail / Culprit // Paris (FR)
Underground DJ/producer Anthony Collins has proved to be one of the most promising rising stars to emerge from the French house and techno scene.
Born to an American father and a French mother, he grew up both in New York and in the South of France. Getting his first taste of music as a child at his father’s jazz recording studio in LA, it wasn’t until later in France that he discovered electronic music as a teenager and fell in love with it. Acquiring his first pair of decks at the age of 17 and playing his first gig the following year, it was soon time to push his career forward by moving to Paris.
Quickly establishing himself on the scene he was booked regularly to play at the city’s most prestigious nights including Rex Club and Batofar, and most recently landing a residency at Paris’ Cirque Bonheur in 2011. Abroad, Anthony has frequented the decks at Panoramabar and Berghain, Weekend and Watergate in Berlin, ADE and Studio 80 in Amsterdam, London’s Fabric, Circoloco DC10 and Space Ibiza, Sonar Barcelona, Goa Rome and Madrid, BLK! Market New York, and BPM conference Mexico to name but a few…
Anthony describes his style as a mix of deep house, house, minimal and deep tech. And his ability to master all these genres is demonstrated in the breadth of high quality labels he has already released on. His EP’s span the iconic French imprint Freak n’Chic, to the hailed deep tech sounds of Curle, Steve Bug’s Poker Flat, Vakant, Mule Electronic, Ibadan, liebe*detail, Horizontal and Supplement Facts. On the remix front Collins’ talent and style has allowed him to rework artists as huge as Ricardo Villalobos, as well as Lee Foss, Cesare vs Disorder, Alejandro Vivanco , Boris Werner and Public Lovers (the new project from Bruno Pronsato). In 2009 he released his first artist album ‘Doubts & Shouts’ on Freak n’Chic, much to the acclaim of many on the underground scene, And a highlight of 2011, indeed of Anthony’s career to date, has to be his co-production with Ricardo Villalobos and Los Updates ‘I Throw Water Into The Lake’, a sultry, almost eerie, deep tech number on Nice Cat! Records.
Following another fruitful summer at DC10 Ibiza, playing the Circoloco parties every other month, Anthony has been focusing much of his time on a new label venture with Francis Harris, Scissor & Thread, which launched at the end of 2011. By no means your average dance imprint, Scissor & Thread is a platform for ambitious sounds, mixing up slow house with the indie world. With releases from newly discovered composers, producers, vocalists and instrumentalists on the horizon, 2012 is set to be an exciting year for the label. On top of managing S&T, Anthony still finds time for his own production, with an upcoming EP on Frank & Tony Records, a more dancefloor-orientated, sub-label of S&T, as well as developing another new project, Bacall & Friends, with releases planned for later this year.
Viva Music / Kina Music / Leone Music // Ibiza (ES)
This Ibiza globetrotter born in the early 80's is one of the most creative figures emerging and promising electronic scene in Ibiza.
Grew as an artist surounded by sounds of the 90´s and already in 2000 started producing his first songs with the classic Roland 505.
Three years later he acquires his first Mac, updating his studio, and falls squarely into the exciting world of electronic music production, as previously drew and experimented with various genders, with the musical culture of its hallmarks the time to produce.
In 2006 his reputation locally and nationally was relevant, and proof of this is that its themes are beginning to hear in different clubs like Space Ibiza, Pacha, Eden, etc etc, rather than getting a positive response of both public and DJs and producers. His themes were improving, along with his technique on the decks, and the audience began to believe in him. So much so that in 2008 he settled in Ibiza, creating the same year his first professional studio.
It should be noted that throughout his career as a producer, Dj Rickzor has not stopped playing in the most visible rooms of the island, as well as events and festivals in Spain and the UK.
Today Spinclub produces for labels such as Cocoon Rec, VIVa MUSiC, Leone Music, Moral Fiber, Austis rec, Kote Rec, Documenti Sonori, FHD, Neurotraxx, Crl, etc., and its most notorious gigs from last year have been in the symbolic Openig andclosing Space parties , as well as his weekly residency at Space Kehakuma or Be Space, where he shared booth with dj's of the likes of Curly Nickl, Martin Buttrich, Johnny D, Ilario Alicante, Sascha and Seth Troxler among others.
In short, we have before us (for our benefit and privilege) to a great DJ and great producer who for sure will not go unnoticed at parties and events in which it participates.
