Relief Records / Play It Down / Toolroom Records // London (UK)
DEEP JACKING GROOVES, WARM RUMBLING SUBS, SWEET SHARP PERCUSSION, DELICATE VOCAL TREATMENT… WHATEVER IT IS ABOUT HOUSE MUSIC THAT STIMULATES YOU THE MOST, YOU’RE GUARANTEED TO FIND PLENTY OF IT ON A WEISS RECORD.
After a spectacularly successful intro to the scene which saw Weiss (pronounced ‘Vice’) being championed by the likes of Groove Armada, Loco Dice, Green Velvet, Kenny Dope, Pete Tong & more, the hit single ‘My Sister’ rotating on BBC Radio 1, whilst staying strong in the Beatport top ten chart for over four months, and countless gigs all over Europe, it was plain to see that Weiss was here to stay.
Following this lead, Weiss has risen to even greater heights, with his releases inspiring support from the most respected & freshest names in the industry, including Gorgon City, Shadow Child, Shiba San, Claptone, Hot Since 82, Claude VonStroke, Tensnake, Bontan and more.
'Guitar Man' stormed up the Beatport charts and remained an essential in clubs for months after its release; whilst Pete Tong continues to champion Weiss' remix of Green Velvet & Riva Starr's 'Robots'. The 'Weiss City' series have been picks of the summer, with tracks like 'I Feel Better' proving to be fan favourites at the likes of We Are FSTVL. Similarly, his remixes of MK's iconic 'Always', Tube & Berger's soulful 'Come On Now (Set It Off)' and Deadmau5’s anthemic ‘Raise Your weapon’ have set the industry alight with accolades from all corners of the scene.
With the new year comes an even stronger sound, ‘Our Love’ follows on from where ‘I Believe’ left off, a driving onslaught of Jackin’ beats with that irrepressible Weiss bass rumbling through, premiered by Pete Tong on Radio 1 with a frenzy of hype around its release.
Trends in dance music will always come and go, and during a peak in the deep synth sound Weiss is an ambassador for real House music, championing the original Jackin’ Chicago house sound, and with a string of exciting projects, collaborations and hotly tipped releases on their way, expect nothing but the hottest and most underground cuts from this rising star…

Dame Music - Wolf + Lamb - London (UK)
A name that's been gaining increasing attention from the who's who of the underground electronic music community lately is London based DJ and producer jozif. The born and bred artist, who has worked his way to where he is today with his typical (to anyone that knows him) 'jozif swagger' - passionate, determined and wildly talent driven - has been charming the pants off the UK and Europe with his productions and DJ sets alike in recent years.
With an infectious and underlying groove to his rhythms - jozif has a unique presence in and out of the booth, encapsulating his floor and coaxing them alongside his ever changing musical explorations. Craig Richards, Ben Watt, Matt Tolfrey, Andrew Weatherall, Paul Woolford and Ashley Beadle alongside London's fabric, lo*kee and Ibiza's We Love...Space have all fallen hook line and sinker for jozif's quirky and impossible to pigeon hole beats. Loose and lazy drum patterns, dramatic strings and brass tinged with slo-mo ambience and a rolling undercurrent of funk depict a soundtrack all of his own that resonates with our musical heart strings whilst evoking the dirtiest bump and grit of a twisted 6am dance floor.
2010 was a solid year all round with releases on Wolf + Lamb, Vitalik and Fist or Finger gaining mass support alongside features on the Balance 016 compilation and an end of year RA podcast. Mixed entirely of his own edits, it's unique edge garnered such support from industry and public alike that it goes down as one of the most talked about RA podcasts to date and set the scene for a highly anticipated 2011. 2010 also saw the launch of Fist of Finger; jozif's limited edition vinyl only label with fabric musical director and long time buddy Craig Richards featuring jozif's dance floor A side's and Craig's experimental reinterpretations on the flip. The first release 'Beats In Space' was an instant sell out and the imminently released 'Brick Jane' and 'Room 3' look set to be just as in demand.
Kick starting 2011 with his 'Sunrise' EP on InFine - a plethora of influences span the four track ep which has gathered rave reviews all round. With upcoming remixes and releases on My Favourite Robot, Compost, No.19, Future Classic, Mobilee and Fist or Finger coupled with a packed international gig schedule - we can safely say the future is looking mighty bright for jozif. An artist who himself refuses to define or describe his sound and rightly so...the music plays testament to the fact that it is there to be heard and felt...not labelled.
