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

Melizma / Cadenza Lab // Santiago De Chile
Born in Santiago, Chile, Andre Butano originally came from the world of gastronomy. As we all know, the worlds of food and music are tightly intertwined. This meant that, as he was working as a chef for some of Santiago’s finest restaurants he began cultivating a deep love for music and sound.
Initially inspired by artists such as Depeche Mode, New Order, Orbital and Kraftwerk, his palate quickly evolved. Now Andre admires producers like Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Terry Lee Brown Jr., Kevin Jost, Brett Johnson, and Mathias Kaden among many others.
Butano quickly established himself as a talent of Chile’s underground house scene. His style was very much appreciated as his sets were always directed towards groovy house and tech-house sounds, supported by uplifting percussions and organic melodies. The trademark that made him famous was the use of his own vocal tracks recorded specifically for each occasion. These would often comment on specific things unique to Chile’s scene and were very humorous and popular amongst club-goers.
His productions have been released all over the world on labels such as Kling Klong, 8Bit, Brise, Amam, Robsoul, Monza Ibiza, Suruba, Trapez , Bla Bla, Resopal ,Paul’s Boutique and by Chilean labels like Drumma, Melisma and Disco Royal. His tracks are being played by some of the best Djs of the circuit like Luciano, DJ Sneak, MANDY, Mathias Kaden, Dubfire ,Reboot , Richie Hatwin , Karotte , Laurent Garnier , Mendo ,among others.
Andre has a duo project with Felipe Venegas (Cadenza, Drumma) called the Jhabas. With Felipe on a live set and Andre behind the mixer they form a very interesting act that combines sounds from house, deep and tech in a very intuitive and improvised fashion. The show is marked by its spontaneity and creativity and is a favorite amongst crowds.
He is currently the resident DJ of La Feria, Chile’s most respected establishment for electronic music and a regular part of any respected line-up in the country. This has lead him to share stages with some of the best visiting talent like Luciano, Reboot, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Steve Lawler and many more.
His career has also lead him to play all around South America and he is a fixture of some of the main festivals such as Creamfields and Mysteryland. This year, he completed his first European tour having played in some of the best clubs in the world. Highlights include being a guest DJ at Cadenza Vagabundos in Pacha Ibiza and sharing a stage with Luciano at Ushuaia.

Rejected / Sci+Tec / Remote Area // Amsterdam (NL)
It was Anton Pieete’s grandfather who stirred his grandson initial urge to make electronic music, by passing on his old synthesizer in 1997. And not without success. Now a days Anton Pieete is a key member of Amsterdam’s New School generation and is storming dance floors with his captivating take on contemporary techno. Innovative and in your face, his hybrid sound is steeped in industrial techno twisted with tough, edgy high-octane tech house.
Anton’s first big break came in 2008, when ‘Players’ on Intacto Records hit the #1 top spot on Beatport. Later in 2009 he shot up the charts again with ‘Siberian’ on Intacto Records, driving the international clubbing masses to the dancefloor. Also his collaboration with Bart Skils, as District One, brought the same insane effect on the partycrowd.
Applying the philosophy of ‘less is more’, then tweaking it with a heavier, ballsy sound, Anton has clearly carved a fresh, new direction for techno. His straight forward style seems to be exactly what people are longing for after years of clicking and clocking.
Whether he is DJing or igniting the crowd with his liveset, performing solo or as District One, he always cooks the floors, gaining him a global reputation for being Amsterdam’s contemporary techno master.
Get Physical / Future Classic // Lithuania (LTU)
I don’t recall how, where or when I met Vidis, but I am sure he was already around when I started writing about Lithuanian nightlife in 2004. He quickly went from being just another DJ, to someone who kept surprising those in the scene with neatly selected sets, parties with secret guests (who turned out to be well known international artists), late night radio shows, a track in Gilles Peterson compilation, and much more…
Vidis has never considered himself an inventor. Or a pioneer. Some say reinventing the wheel is not an option, but what if you take something that already exists and add a new direction, quality, and dimension to it? Who can complain? So here’s Vidis today - a DJ, producer, promoter, radio host, label founder, artist agency manager, and more. Put it plain and simple – a music enthusiast of the highest order, a local institution, and an apt advocate of his city and the scene behind it. The master of reinvention.
Foreign acts were brought to Lithuania earlier than Vidis began his career, sure. He booked Rune Linbaek and Daniel Wang before the term New Disco was coined. Ame and Dixon first visited Lithuania and his parties ahead of being praised and pigeonholed as the new Deep House idols. Vidis introduced Jazzanova, Atjazz, Charles Webster, Prins Thomas, Chateau Flight, DJ Deep and many others to the Lithuanian clubbers and, brought Caribou, Architecture In Helsinki, and Junior Boys to perform live for those who thought they’ve seen and heard it all.
A visit to the studio of one of the most prolific Lithuanian producers, Mario Basanov, resulted in the formation of one of the most influential and internationally established production duo's, Mario & Vidis.
Silence wasn’t the first Lithuanian electronic music label either, but the first one to cross over internationally with tracks being played by Laurent Garnier, Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Soul Clap, Sasha, Jamie Jones and the likes. The label began worldwide distribution, and an international booking schedule would take him to the metropolis' of Berlin, London, Moscow, Istanbul, Milan, San Paulo, and even some unlikely places in Siberia.
The videos accompanying the music were of course not the first in the country, but they instantly became the most viewed, blogged (even by Kanye West), and Youtubed Lithuanian music videos ever.
The wheel of reinvention keeps on turning and Vidis is setting a new standard again - he's the first Lithuanian DJ to deliver a high profile mix album for internationally renowned label, and tech/deep house embassy
Compost Blacklabel, Poker Flat, Delusions Of Grandeur - Muchen (DE)
What do molecular cooking and modern music have in common?
Both venture the realms of the avant-garde, without loosing the prosaic outlook on life, art and good taste, while inelegant junkies for Bavarian leberkäs, Jamba subscribers and Starsearch-kiddies wallow in the insufferable boringness of mediocrity.
Shallowness, ordinarity and a simple sensation of contentment do not mix well with higher forms of artistic communication.
SHOW-B is taking on the challenge, and is making a triumphal procession through the heaven of arrangements and the musically modernistic housemusic. With his background as a DJ, his music is
not always only dance-oriented, it is definitely treading in its own new paths.
Complex, but fleet-footed, his rhythmic structures produce a soulful symbiosis with the music of long-gone times of dance music. Traditional elements, such as Flutes or Rhodes unite with sub basses, crisp kick drums and detriotesque bass lines, culminating in SHOW-B’s own definition of Housemusic.
