H.O.S.H. / ANDHIM
Diynamic / DIYNAMIC066D
The long awaited collaboration of H.O.S.H. & andhim - grand finale of H.O.S.H.'s "Forever Young" series. Look who's back, back again. It's one of the main men at Diynamic, the one and only Mr. H.O.S.H.! The dude is a key member of the Diynamic family, has been for years and always comes up with the floor filling goods. Now he brings his extra special 'Forever Young' project to a close with another fantastic EP featuring two more very special house tracks. The well received project has seen the artist release four limited edition EPs on 10" vinyl, with each track representing a character from a childhood dream, and one of these cuts was made in collaboration with German Get Physical duo andhim. Up first is the mighty 'Captain' - a suitable title considering H.O.S.H.'s DJ adventures on the high seas in Ibiza. It's a deep track driven along by rich drums and warm bass notes as rough metal percussion lashes about in the foreground, a little bit like a stormy sea breeze. On the flip, the brilliant 'Writer' is another lush bit of artistic and musical house music with woody percussive sounds, sombre downbeat chords and more ethereal pads.
TUBE & BERGER / MONKEY SAFARI / ADAM BEYER / COYU / RODRIGUEZ JR.
SUARA / SUARA141
So... Here we have one of the most hightly awaited EPs of the year. Since the transcendence "Imprint Of Pleasure" took being the most sold track on Beatport from 2013 and definetely one of the tracks of the year, we cannot miss the chance to release a remix pack. And then, the big question: ¿Which artists should remix this track?. After many discussions, we concluded that we needed four totally different point of views for such an amazing cut. That's why we choose: Monkey Safari, Adam Beyer, Rodriguez Jr. and of course our mastercat Coyu. Each artist gives a totally and unique point of view. Now it's your turn to decide who you think did the best job. We can't decide one. We love them all!
JOSH WINIBERG / RE-DRUM / FLORINSZ JANVIER / JASON BAY / SAES
Plus Plus / PLUS019
Josh Winiberg graces Plus Plus Records with the breathtaking Awakening EP. A journey to the depths, where the ethereal meets the emotive, a delight for the senses and for the dancefloor. The original tracks Weeping Willow and Awakening demonstrate Joshs razor sharp, understated production abilities, juxtaposed with his refined composers ear for melody. First to take Joshs bittersweet productions to a different corner is Toulouses The Shining-inspired Re-Drum, with a slowed-down deep industrial disco rework. Next up, permanent fixture on the Dutch underground electronic scene Florisz Janvier gives Weeping Willow a leftfield house treatment, skittering percussion interplaying with shimmering synths. Plus Plus Records boss Jason Bay takes the controls with an epic tech-infused journey deep into the night, that builds and builds into a joyous electronic disco crescendo... And finishing off the package with aplomb, SAES takes us to left-of-centre, downbeat electronic house territory. Joshs skills as a dj and dance producer are informed by his roots as a prodigious classical pianist and composer. Josh released his first album at the age of just sixteen, and played at events such as Italys prestigious Ravello Festival. Whilst still a music student, a university exchange to Berlin exposed Josh to the German house and techno scene, and upon completion of his degree Josh moved there and immersed himself in electronic music. During his four years living in Berlin Josh honed his djing and production skills, used to great effect on releases for Push Communications, Sublunary, and Plus Plus amongst others, finding support from the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Pig & Dan, Motorcitysoul, and many more.

Catwash Records // Paris (FR)
Deep, dark, acid, sexy house music has always been closest to the heart of DJ W!LD. For many, the recent rise of DJ W!LD - the Circo Loco residency, the WMC and Sonar debuts, the joining of Cocoon’s world-renowned roster - has him pegged as one of the most exciting new talents on the scene. To those in the know, the accolades are simply long-overdue recognition for one of France’s long-serving underground house heroes. No matter your perspective, the truth is undeniable: DJ W!LD is one of the most deserving breakthrough acts of recent years.
DJ W!LD’s journey began at the end of the 1980s in Dijon, France, via a keen interest in graffiti street culture, disco, funk and hip hop. With a DJ moniker chosen in tribute to the cult 1983 film Wild Style, DJ W!LD’s formative influence was Laurent Garnier; it was Garnier’s unique and all-encompassing style that encouraged DJ W!LD to develop his own perspective on the music emanating from Detroit and Chicago. DJ W!LD relocated to Paris in 1996, where he gravitated towards the DJ booth, playing at popular Parisian clubs Palace, Queen, Rex, and collaborating with Peter Rauhofer as House Heroes, on the international hit "Magic Orgasm".
As the growing popularity of ‘French Touch’ filtered house in the late 1990s drew more and more attention to Parisian producers, DJ W!LD opted to not hustle for his moment in the spotlight; he instead poured his energies into the city’s underground club community, during the time of the harshest censorship and government policies. Soon afterwards, disillusioned by Paris’ increasingly commercial club landscape, DJ W!LD began to focus his attentions abroad. He was a regular guest DJ in New York, including a memorable set for nightclub institution Twilo, and from there he ventured further south. In Brazil he attended huge parties with more than 10,000 ecstatic revellers, and he was awestruck by both the scale of the crowds and by their level of enthusiasm for the most eclectic and unpredictable DJ sets. With his faith restored, DJ W!LD returned to Europe and began a residency with Brussels leading tastemaker club Fuse.
At the turn of the millennium, DJ W!LD crossed paths with Chris Carrier and Guillaume La Tortue, and their collaborative EP Carnaval/Comestible soon followed. From there, DJ W!LD’s longtime associations with the fashion world led to him composing music and soundtracks for legendary designers such as Thierry Mugler, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, Agnes B and Ora Ito, but it was 2005 that proved to be the major turning point, reconciling his much-loved DJ style with a floor-focused production approach. The music of Catwash, the duo made up of Chris Carrier and DJ W!LD, became an instant favourite of DJs around the globe, with tracks finding their way into the sets of Andrew Weatherall, Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin and Josh Wink, and licensed on Detour, Visitor, Crack & Speed and Get Physical.
DJ W!LD established his own solo imprint Catwash Records soon afterwards, but being marginalised by the growing dancefloor demand for electro and minimal fueled a desire to get back into the studio, and sparked a period of intense productivity which saw him completing a new track every one or two days. Many of these productions were courted and released by leading labels Off, Robsoul, Motivbank, Love Letters from Oslo and RAL, the bootleg label created by Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano. In 2009 DJ W!LD was announced as the new resident DJ for DC10’s Circo Loco, and the following year he made his debut at WMC and Sonar Festival. Not long afterwards, Sven Väth invited DJ W!LD to join the Cocoon family, and he went on to show-stopping debut sets in Japan with Circoloco, and at London's Fabric club and Berlin's Panorama Bar.
DJ W!LD’s upward trajectory continued though 2011, with the launch of his new label, W, numerous EPs for Luna Records, Magnetic, Adult Only and Soweso, and the release of his acclaimed debut album Palace, which offered a glimpse of acid house, techno, disco and soul through DJ W!LD’s eyes. Heading into 2012, the momentum is showing no signs of slowing: the forthcoming Palace remixes have drawn on the talents of DJ Sneak, Kerri Chandler, Art Department, Radio Slave, Jay Haze, Chris Carrier, SIS and Gauthier DM, his own productions and remixes will be soon be seen on hot labels like Robsoul, One Records and Viva, plus DJ W!LD’s forthcoming sophomore album D!rty, for Cabin Fever Records, will reveal another layer of his sound; one that harnesses the spirit of his energetic DJ sets, and stays true to the spirit of classic house with a view to future-forward dancefloor sounds.
DJ W!LD is now a regular fixture of it all: the best international clubs and festivals, the leading labels, the hottest remixes and the sought-after DJ mixes, the press, the hype and the underground chatter. Yet through it all, and into the future the spirit that drives him will remain the same: deep, dark, acid, a little bit w!ld and always sexy music.
MONA PARTY Paris (FR)
House - Tech House - Disco
NICKV is a product of Mancunia, packaged in the suburbs of Paris and currently one of the hottest djs on the Paris scene.
When someone like Marshall Jefferson speaks, you listen. And it’s definitely a compliment, what the House originator once told Zurich based DJ Eli Verveine: „You sound just like from my hood in Chicago.“. As flattering as such a notion is, and as rough and rumbling as her mixes can be, one would be hard-pressed to see Eli Verveine’s craft as a Windy City phenomenon.
Deejaying, it’s a mission. In the case of Eli Verveine, a long period of intense experimentation and self-discovery led to the sensitive, instinctive and insightful DJ she now is. Honing her skills at the legendary Dachkantine club or at her weekly radio show at Zurich’s Radio Lora, it was not before long that she garnered enthusiastic responses with her refined mix tapes: the most prominent of which Eli did for the reknowned techno doyens at the mnml ssgs-blog.
If Eli has a knack for something, then it’s probably to tell her story of the deep over the course of an evening. Though she also expertly likes to unroll the carpet as an intro dj. „When you garner the first screams from a crowd while playing your last tracks, then you can be certain you have done a good job.“ says Eli. Right. But let’s rather hope you see her playing that early-morning sunset-set (ok, let’s call it a „sun-set“): Trust in Eli and you will most likely be blown away by a high-octane affair. Swoosh!
Downwards / Horizontal Ground // Berlin (UK)
Samuel Kerridge has quickly made a name for himself, responsible for one of 2012's most remarkable and self assured debuts 'Auris Interna' on the ultra-picky Horizontal Ground. This didn't go unnoticed by Downwards label boss Karl O'Connor, and Samuel followed with two more critically acclaimed EP's.
Kerridge has found a perfect home for his highly original productions of unfettered sonic exploration, re-defining the relationship between rhythm and sound design with decimating kick drums and feedback, and unearthly amounts of distortion until you're left with a dripping, toxic style of techno.
It’s not from Detroit, but it’s more about where Kerridge is at – creating seductive, darkly soulful music.
Not afraid to question people's perceptions of clubbing, he Co-founded the Contort events in Berlin, not only as an outlet for his own artistic vision, but to bring back a level of creativity and magic to a stale club scene.
With compilations, remixes, and an album all due out before 2013 closes, the future is extremely bright for this artist.

We all know Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, ?we have all heard of Rémus et Romulus.??Yes, Adolfo and Franky, they too are a two-person team, ?but let us never compare them to those who we already know. Their alliance is down to a point, ?a little point very much resemblant to that of Eros and Psyché.??This union gives life to something uncomparable, ?something that is both wonderful and devine at the sme time.?Because from our union an orphéon célesta is born, from which the rumors spreads so fast ?that all the surrounding stages are abandoned, the temples of music are emptied, ?and people from all over gather to witness and listen to this metaphysique duetto.??They are not real beaings nor real creatures. They simply just are! You will see ..
