WE PLAY HOUSE RECORDINGS - BELGIUM (BE)
House - Deep House
Red D come from Belgian. He started listening to new beat and Belgian rave anthems around 1989 and slowly discovered the good stuff.
Moon Harbour - Berlin (DE)
Markus Schatz is one of the Berlin originals and ranks among the children of this city´s electro-natives but
had been layed in the cradle of Hip Hop first. This musical kick-off within this so called "old-school" proved to
be a real good school, which he left with excellent knowledge and skills in subjects of the most fundamental
dj-techniques. After this catchy interlude with the avant-garde of skillful handling with the much sought-after
vinyl, Markus has developed a remarkable tactfulness for the turntables and therewith laid an essential base
for his dj-career.
Shortly after the emerging impulses of electronic music finally brought damp into the kettle of Berlin
underground. The acoustic wave of techno spilled over the city and sweped Markus away with its floods.
After a little diving he attested to be good swimmer and soon forged ahead right from the starting blocks of
Berlin clubs like the world-famous Tresor/Globus, where he remained to play as resident for 7 years from
1995 until 2002.
But also the dancing crouds on Berlin floors of E-Werk, Casino, Sage-Club or Club Maria already could get
affected by his cliff-hanging dj-Sets. Ever since Markus counts to the very welcome acts on the playgrounds
of elektronic soundscapes.
Besides his career as dj Markus also was working on his progressing as producer since 2004. As warm-up
he started first a project together with a friend but possibly with a too short inrun and softly landed on smaller
labels like EK records (Berlin) or Force Sense (Hamburg). Then in 2007 Markus startet another try as solo
artist and finally reached enough energy to get trough to international known music labels like Opossum
(Berlin) and Highgrade (Berlin). This success had been primarely supported by the creative collaboration
with Highgrade´s top dog Tom Clark. Releases like "Scribble Mania","Hot Choc" and "Dope on Plastic" are
definitely the highlights of Markus´ still short discographie so far and brought him appreciative feedback from
considerable acts like Josh Winks or Clauce van Stroke.
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.

cocoon rec. / pokerflat rec. / cargo edition - Leipzig
Sven Tasnadi was born in 1978. He came in contact with electronic music early on. In the early 90´s
he witnessed the advent of electronic music in Germany, subsequently began to go clubbing more
frequently and eventually in 1995 started deejaying himself. Via Acid and Chicago Sounds he found
his way towards minimal sounds over the years. Sven’s career shows an amazing development up to
the turn of the millennium, from gigs at the well-known Tresor to resident nights at two local techno
His productions are characterized by their plainness, owing to the poor technical equipment back in
the day. For the most part he simply employed a sampler and a drum machine. But with the advent
of personal computers in German households he too could create and produce new sounds without
lots of equipment. Not least because of these unlimited possibilities Sven does not want to be
pigeonholed. This way Ambient and Trip Hop tracks came up as did Electro and Minimal tracks
suitable for peak time, all of them made with heart’s blood and the love for detail.
In late 2005 Sven got to know Daniel Stefanik and Matthias Tanzmann from Moonharbour Rec.
From that then developed close friendship originated his first vinyl release – in summer 2006 those
two produced the Cargo Edition 003.
Month later, Daniel felt confident about Sven’s productions and thus Cargo 004 – “el fuego de
dentro” was all his.
Svens first releases caught the attention of Hamburg record labels like liebe*detail and smallville.
The release on smallville grabs the attention of cocoon head Sven Väth.
He plays the Track“ waiting for you“ on Ibiza and enjoys it so much that he licences it for his
annual „The Sound of“ series.
In April 2010 he had his first release on cocoon recordings with the track „Nordsee“
a split ep together with Markus Fix.
Sven also running his own label oh!yeah! Together with Daniel Stefanik an Juno6.
For the three ambitious guys this is the logical consequence of a deep friendship and a mutual
understanding of music.

our own Cezar is one of the leading "new kids on the block". his cutting edge sets are both seminal and energetic,
the boundry between new and old, minimal techo or house is determined only by the vibe he finds "out there".
playing alongside big names like Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano or the whole Arpiar gang didn't keep Cezar tied to the
decks. he also found the time and energy needed to sharpen his production skills. Cezar even got involved in a live
project with percussionist Lucian Maxim and vibrafone player Alexandru Anastasiu.
together with Raresh, Praslea and Kozo, Cezar founded Afumati a production collective in which they work randomly
and alltogether. his first solo EP (Din Gand in Cand) has just seen the light on the new Understand label. which he
also started with Kozo and Praslea.
