Diynamic Music // Zurich (SUI)
Adrian & Adrian, two guys from Zurich started off with music just like everyone
else by trying several instruments and scratching on grandfather’s turntable,
nothing special about that. Both were born in the mid 80’s when the techno
and house community was rising to the top.
90’s dance, hip-hop & house stuff influenced one of them. The other half was
more into melodic sounds and Europe based techno. On the road as solo
artists they met in 2008, found mutual connection with their interpretations and
became dj & production partners.
Harmony between Dj-ing, performance and immediate contact with the people
makes a good to a "better" dj. The self-proclaimed brothers have a sensible
feeling for the Clubheads, dance-a-holics and all the others, for which "music"
means attitude not just a word. They love to mix up different styles to make
their sets intensive, diversified and unique. Almost poetic, comparable with an

In addition to their musical-work & busy club-schedule Adriatique have their
monthly based event series „Moving Around Us“ in Zurich which has grown to
a meeting point for international guests, local talent, music & art.

Diynamic Music // Hamburg (GER)
“I´m neither afraid of showing my emotions nor to include them in my music” -
Few people bring a truly original sound to house music. It’s all very well making
some nice grooves and working the dancefloor, but when it comes to longevity
and leaving an indelible mark on the genre and the wider musical sphere, you’ve
got to bring something new to the table. At a relatively young age, Hamburg’s
Martin Stimming did just that, demonstrating a sophisticated yet accessible sound
that’s beyond his years.
“I want people to see me as an evolving artist, where you never know what
exactly you get - but you know that it’s Stimming.”
The elegance of his productions is rooted in his classical training in his native
Germany. Born in Giessen in 1983, he became highly accomplished at the violin,
piano and drums by the age of 10, giving him a solid and well-rounded musical
education and ability, and an intimate understanding of music theory. His first
electronic obsessions took hold when he was 15, discovering the joy of sampled
breaks and beats through the likes of DJ Krush and Grooverider, and a year later
when living in Butzbach (not far from techno hub Frankfurt) he fell under the
spell of DJs like Sven Väth of Chris Liebing and began hoarding vinyl. It was
around this time that he began producing music with a computer – something he
soon realised was his “destiny”.
“I think if more producers would include their own mind and feelings into their
music the whole scene would be much more flavoured and diverse which would
be good for all of us…at least in an entertaining way.”
With his future path clearly in mind, Stimming moved to Hamburg aged 19 and
enrolled in a Electronic Music Production course at the SAE Institute, followed by
a studio internship. By 2006 he was producing bubbly deeper techno as one half
of Gebrüder Ton, and around this time he met two guys named Solomun and
Adriano, who shared a similar take and viewpoint on house and techno music.
These two new acquaintances set up their label Diynamic Music in the same year,
and soon Stimming was producing and releasing music and collaborations on the
nascent imprint, building himself the musical family that he had longed for – and
launching his solo career under his own surname in 2007. His breakthrough hit,
2008’s Una Pena, made the electronic world sit up and take notice, and before
long acclaimed labels like Freerange, liebe*detail, Buzzin’ Fly, Green and Poker
Flat were snapping up his work. 2009 saw him release his immaculate debut
album Reflections to great acclaim, cementing his reputation as one of the most
exciting new producers of his generation.
“Probably every track normally has at least one sound that is completely out of
context, but tweaked and smashed in a way that it fits.”
Amidst a sea of mediocre similarity in dance music, Martin Stimming’s work
stands out as truly different. His productions are filled with a multitude of his own
unique, charismatic field recordings, and he never uses the same sample more
than once. Nothing is sacred; sources of sound in his productions have included a
Coke can, a coffee machine, children’s toys, keys, marbles, a rubbish bin, loose
change, tube train breaking systems and doors and an Ikea pizza cutter. His
intricate beats and rhythm are testament to his long-running drumming skills –
which in recent years saw him play live drum kit beats on top of frenetic drum
and bass DJ sets in German clubs – and his music conveys a strong range of
emotions within the limitations of deeper house and techno music.
“You just can’t get that type of material out of a synthesizer. And I'm also able
to, in a way, morph the listener into the atmosphere I had when I recorded it.
And depending on how much I tweak it afterwards it can be a very natural 'on
this earth' kind of feeling, or the exact opposite.”
But it’s not all about 4/4 kicks and dancefloor mentality; as his stunning second
album Liqourice demonstrates. Produced with pleasing no-one but himself in
mind, it eschews the normal kick-clap/snare template by and large to explore
more interesting and progressive territories, but always with that trademark
magpie-like sense of texture, emotion and discovery. It’s an album to expand his
remit beyond the constraints of the dancefloor and into the wider realms of
beautiful electronic music.
"I called it Liquorice because I simply love real liquorice sweets, and I have
realised that it's something someone loves or hates. There's not much middle
ground, and there were probably 50% who like it and the others don't."
2010 saw him pick up an award for Best Newcomer at the Ibiza DJ Awards,
following on from his live show (Stimming doesn’t DJ) stunning the crowds at the
island’s legendary Pacha, and the finest danceries around the world – from
Berlin’s Panorama bar to Sao Paulo’s D-Edge, Brussels’ Fuse, London’s Fabric and
Paris’ Rex, and plenty more beyond. Remixes for the likes of Sascha Funke,
Claude VonStroke, Marc Romboy and Stephan Bodzin and Robert Babicz to name
but a few have further spread his influence amongst the discerning house and
tech community, and cemented his reputation as one of the scene’s most
Clearly, Martin Stimming is a precious talent indeed.
Catwash Records / Resopal // Italy (ITA)
The Lula Circus project came to light at the end of 2008 as a result
a partnership between Danilo Sardella and Sergio Frazzingaro.
Starting as a game, matching two people coming from different musical
backgrounds and an "experimental experience", it soon developed into a
The name of the project itself is the result of a mix between motion
picture culture, Lula is the unforgettable main character in David
Lynch's "Wild at Heart" and club culture embodied in the image of a
loud and never-ending circus.
All of this is backed up with a deep love for music and an endless
search for a wider spectrum within the house music genre, combining
echoes of Ennio Morricone's soundtracks with synths that evoke Warp's
From their first release with Resopal in 2009, through to Catwash in
2010, Stranjiur and Culprit L.A. in 2011, their path has been varied
consistent in a distintive sound that identifies their work which is
bound to any specific genre.
Their tracks have been played and supported by names such as Maya Jane
Coles, Carl Cox, Solomun, Droog, Dj W!ld and Tale of Us.
As they often say…We love music!

Just Jack / Visionquest // Nottingham (UK)
Nottingham based DJ / producer Nick Lawson tirelessly devotes himself to the endless possibilities of electronic music. His meticulous approach to DJing and production has seen him hone a versatile style that explores the deepest realms of House and Techno.
Nick's early releases on Romulus Schwarz's Shrink and SheWolf Music imprints saw him develop a sound that was both organic and nostalgic. His low-slung groover 'Daphadandilly' achieved wide support, despite being released only digitally, and has since appeared on Matt Tolfrey's mix compilation for 1trax. Nick's collaborative works with Matthew Burton has seen them both explore different corners of House music, breaking the typical methodologies they normally adhere to with their solo efforts. Their first two releases together, 'Mischievous Moustache' (2009) and 'Playdo' (2010), appeared on MultiVitamins and Leftroom offshoot Left’d respectively. After both featuring on another Left'd release with 'Snuff It' (2011), the pair continued with their warehouse style in the shape of the moody Tech House track 'Gruff It' (2011) released on Visionquest. Other releases in 2011 included ‘Take Me Away’ on Fear of Flying, another collaboration with Matthew, and ‘Ma Feelinz’ on Morris Audio. Currently developing new material, 2012 has been a relatively quiet year for Nick so far, with two Spring-time releases in the shape of a remix of Jordan Peak's 'Got Soul' on Morris Audio and a solo EP on Back To You.
In 2009, Nick and Matthew broke out of the studio and put their heads together to form Busta Groove. This paved the way for the pair realise a mutual objective to run their own night that encourages guest DJs to dig deep into their collection and present quality deep music far into the early hours without the predictabilities normally expected of other House and Techno nights. With Berlin’s spanking new Dice Club as their setting, Busta Groove played host to Seth Troxler, Ekkohaus, Deepchild and Simon Baker during its time in the German capital. Since Dice's closure however, Busta Groove has set up camp at the much hallowed Eleven in Nottingham and has also held a series of parties at The Nest in London, welcoming the likes of Ethyl, Kassem Mosse, BLM, murmur, Leif, Baaz, Giles Smith and Christopher Rau, amongst others.
Aside from Busta Groove, Nick also currently holds a residency at the Wherehouse? in Notts where he shares his own style of deep yet groove-laden House and Techno, showing he is just as at home playing a carefully crafted warm up set as he is at knocking out a more energetic peak timer.
Diligent and passionate, Nick continues to pursue his sensibilities for deep music, constantly developing and refining his sound. Expect a deep and gritty style with a constant nod to dubby influences.
Lola Ed / DC10 // Paris (FR)
Dyed Soundorom had an unusual entrée into dance music. The owner of infamous Paris nightspot Les Bain Douches spotted something in the hyper, perma-smiling party kid and approached him with a request: “he wanted me to put on a party with an underground sound,” says Dyed with a grin. And that is what he has been doing ever since – as a promoter, DJ and especially as a gifted producer.
Dyed is as adept at juggling beats as he was dribbling basketballs, and he approaches every club with the verve and energy of an athlete rushing into competition. From the cutting edge dancefloors of Batofar and the Rex Club in Paris, his DJ career has gone global. In recent months Dyed has racked up an eye-watering number of air-miles and brought his deft touch to the hottest parties on the planet, including Berlin’s Panoramabar, to Womb in Tokyo, Fabric London, Louche in Leeds, Sankeys in Manchester, Studio 80 Amsterdam, Goa in Roma, NYC Blk market and Ushuaia beach, the most talked-about party of Ibiza 2009, and the best was to come in 2010 summer season when Dyed Soundorom has been named resident of the glorious Circoloco @ DC10, Ibiza, and just rocked it every Mondays ! What he brings to every club is a winning mix of style and enthusiasm. He oozes cool but Dyed never makes the mistake of taking himself seriously. His only priority is to keep the party rocking.
Dyed discovered the power of pure entertainment as a kid listening to Michael Jackson’s Thriller and, like a great pop star, he understands that giving people what they want doesn’t mean compromising on quality. The past two years have seen Dyed devote himself increasingly to production with impressive results. Freak n’ Chic label boss Dan Ghenacia, a close friend, spotted Dyed’s talent immediately, encouraging him to do remixes for FnC’s first label compilation ‘Rendez Vous 01’. Since then Dyed has released 12”s and EPs on labels including Spectral Sound, Freak n’Chic, Crosstown Rebels, Adult Only, Supplement Facts, Safari electronique and Tsuba Records, and added his remix skills to projects including Maya Jane coles ‘What They Say’ rework, wolf+Lamb Love someone ‘s long format, Franck Roger’s Love call remixes EP, ‘Eyelights’ compilation and the ‘Tsuba Remixes Vol 3’ compilation along with Pier Bucci, Daniel Stefanik and D’Julz..
Given his deep roots in the electronic music scene it is hardly surprising Dyed’s career is blooming. If anything the mischievous twinkle in his eye that led to his first gig as a promoter in Paris is brighter than ever, and his irrepressible urge to be at the heart of the party is just as strong. With an ever-broadening network of clubs and labels clamouring for his music there is hardly a corner of the world left that is immune to the charms of Dyed Soundorom’s underground sound.
