Wood Lesty Ep

ZENDID

Plaisir Records / PLA001

1st release of new French label Plaisir Records by the artist Zendid, with a VID remix !!
Support: tINI, Faster, Anthea, Ada Kaleh

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

Believer Ep

This unique symbiosis conveys into an organic touch and brings live to each production. Get into the vibe!

Right About Now Ep

DIEGO KRAUSE

Apollonia / APO015

There's no doubt that the Apollonia trio are on fire, 2014 has been a whirlwind of Berlin studio production, to reigning in Ibiza, to dropping their debut album Tour à Tour to a rapturous reception. But straight back to the label with a new EP, they proudly present breaking talent Diego Krause.Hailing from East Berlin, Krause already caused a stir amongst the heads with releases on his own label Unison Wax and co-owned Beste Modus, Unison Wax 02 swiftly landing itself a 4/5 on Resident Advisor and pricking up the ears of the Apollonia boys.Serving up three quality tracks very much in-keeping with Apollonia's own sound, you can easily imagine any one fitting perfectly into the later hours of their B2B2B sets. 'Right About Now' establishes its presence with a powerful bassline and solid clap, before deep swirling synths enter, as does an echoing xylophone to truly euphoric effect. The slightly eerie, but mostly intoxicating, 'Dreams' brings a subtle groove and conjures up those early morning moments, while 'Manitu' the most peak-team of the three, is a bouncy number full of positive energy and a strong tech-house edge, that will go down a treat on any dancefloor

Don't Stop Lovin Remixes

ALEX DAVIS

Blend It Records / BLEND-V01

MILTON BRADLEY

Grounded Theory / Do Not Resist The Beat! // Berlin (GER)

Born and raised in Berlin, Milton Bradley has been influenced by this versatile and ever changing city. The late 80's brought acid house into his world and along with early Belgian techno, kick started his love affair with all things electronic.
Milton’s dj sets vary from dark experimental techno to the deepest industrial sounds and the most iridescent textures, fully encompassing the last 20 years of musical history.

In 2008 Milton gave birth to the 'Do Not Resist the Beat' label. It displays an honest, open account of Milton’s musical preferences; everything is there for a reason, no surplus or padding. Dark experimental drones with unnerving atmospheric sparseness, industrial sounds fused with the early minimalistic theologies to create one of techno’s most defined and original styles.
Not resting on his laurels, 2010 brought the experimental and dark sub label 'The End of All Existence'. One listen requires no explanation for the nom de plume, atmospheric, earth shuddering, cinematic techno at its finest. Alongside Henning Baer he then created 'K209' as an outlet to release more raw and industrial techno cuts. More recently in 2012 and inspired by the mid 90’s acid sound, Milton set up the label ‘Alien Rain’.

A true enigmatic insurgent, Milton’s heavy and atmospheric productions aid in the construction of complex promenades and have been hosted on not just his own imprints, but with other well respected labels. Bradley made his first release on Perc Trax in 2010. His mixes of ‘BCG’ EP were prime examples of what has become an enigmatic sound - deep, dubby rhythms coupled with chugging techno, reminiscent of an old school Detroit aesthetic.
Critically acclaimed releases on Prologue, Zooloft, and Ann Aimee, as well as the tracks on his own labels, have pushed Milton to the forefront of the techno underground and made him one of the most exciting up and coming producers in the genre. It’s this ability to stand out from the crowd that has seen his talent recognised and rewarded, prompting Grounded Theory to make Milton Bradley their resident dj.

Not a lot is known about Milton Bradley’s personal identity, but his work is far from secluded. He has gone from being a consumer to actually writing Berlin’s Techno history as a producer, remixer and international dj.

AZARI AND III

Get Physical / Fabric Records // Toronto (CAN)

They're hungry, they're reckless, they're taking the world by storm with their relentless love beats and fanatical siren songs, they are Azari & III and their medium is the message - free your spirit through raw ass dance music all night long!

The mysterious duo from the northern steppes of Canada started a fire burning with the brazen Hungry For The Power, a single released last fall that is continually blowing up with fans ranging from Annie Mac to Grizzly Bear, Boys Noize to Broken Social Scene. The follow up smash, Reckless (With Your Love), is currently serving up a dose of techno soul so addictively repeatable, you gotta be cautious or you'll get hooked.

With remixes for and by the likes of Health, Munk, Booka Shade, Le Le, Bot'ox, Ali Love, Sidwo? Nacho Lovers, Mano Le Tough, Runaway, Cosmo Vitelli and Mathias Aguayo, wait, lemme catch my breath...its only been 8 months but this outfit is outputting like a sweatshop in July! Let's hope they don't so quickly disappear into the strange abyss from which they came...but somehow I think there is a grander story unfolding here...

FLASHMOB

GET PHYSICAL - Berlin (DE)

Danny and Alessandro share a vision together, where music reclaims focus and all else comes second. They see a world in which their motivation is to create something worth while, and worth listening to. A place where respect, honesty, and simplicity foster positive growth and forward movement. They began building this world, and dubbed it Flashmob. In the current state of digital sales charts, illegal downloads, and countless egos, Flashmob are the voice of the opposition. Bringing underground back down to earth and away from commercial exploitation. No unwarranted releases, no shameless self promotion, and no disrespect. These are the virtues to which Flashmob bind themselves, virtues that have in recent years become more and more rare. By focusing their entire energy on the only true thing that matters, music, Flashmob has already gained ground. The first demo cut from the fresh duo, 'Brickhouse' created quite a stir in the scene; played at some of Ibiza's hottest nights to overwhelming fanfare and gaining them attention from Berlin's Tech House ministry Get Physical. 2012 looks to be an eventful year for Flashmob, while innovation and self awarenes will help to ensure a place in the scene, it's the solid production skills and sheer talent that will carry them to their goals.

ITALOBOYZ

Moon Harbour / Get Physical / Trapez ltd // London (ITA)

Since arriving in London at the beginning of the new millennium, Italoboyz, aka Marco Donato and Federico Marton, have become an essential fixture of the capital’s small but passionate house/techno/minimal scene. From their notorious back-to-back DJ sets at FESH (333, London), their reputation has grown to the point where they can now be found playing regularly across the planet. However, it’s not

just the energy and flair of their DJ sets that has captured the imagination, Italoboyz releases now on some of today’s most influential minimal-house / techno labels like Mothership and Get Physical, after starting to work in 2005/2006 with label like Treibstoff, Einmaleins Musik, Gumption and Safari Electronique.

"When you realize that without moving there won’t be any change, you move…" explains Marco, so that’s exactly what they did, swapping their native Italy for London (Marco in 2001 and Fede in 2002), urged on by separate desires to go deeper and get more involved in electronic music. It was this fusion of minds, with complementary ways of both absorbing and communicating electronic music that inspired them to team up and form Italoboyz in 2002. Since then they haven’t stopped moving forward, obsessively exploring the hybrid sounds of house and techno through their love of minimalism, acid-house and hi-tech funk.

Although their sound has always been characterized by organic elements along with large doses of funk and energy, the distinctive flavor of their productions and DJ sets is down to a willingness to embrace and explore the various genres and sub-genres that develop out of this constantly evolving music. One of the reasons Italoboyz productions are so well received is the fact that their musical expression is a fusion of sounds, themes and ideas resulting from over 15 years of music research and DJing experience. Their aim is to deliver the most modern, cutting edge sound possible but it should still resonate through time, both past and future, in order to make the immediate experience all the more seductive.

When they were throwing their own parties in 2003/2004 they built up quite a following, often running all day long from Sunday afternoon till early Monday morning. It’s an experience that has given them valuable knowledge and insight into the difference between playing in a ‘peak time’ club environment and a more laid back ‘after hour’ situation where the emphasis is on creating sonic landscapes that morph from easy-listening, atmospheric sounds to more dance orientated grooves.

In 2007 there was a surge of events: starting with the “Accendiamo l'ascensore” EP (feat. Rico Casazza and SozAdams aka MarcAshken) on Gumption Recordings in February, followed by the release of “Viktor Casanova” - the track with the mysterious female opera singer - on Claude VonStrokes new label Mothership Music in July 07. This outstanding track developed into one of the biggest underground club hits of the last few years, highly supported initially by Villalobos, Dice, Sven Vaeth and Luciano, and then played in every corner on the planet from every DJ on heart, from house to techno to electro. Their next EP on Get Physical Music "Zinga” at the beginning of 2008 was again a huge club hit and established the guys profile world wide.

After the success of Viktor Casanova and Zinga there was no way that the Italoboyz could possibly top their own tracks? Wrong! They created an organic techno masterpiece ’Bahia,’ enlisting the help of one of the greatest jazz musicians of our time - John Coltrane. Italoboyz vs. Johan Coltrane “Bahia” is once again a club hit, the third in a row…

After playing at places like Watergate in Berlin, CocoonClub in Frankfurt, The WIRE festival in Tokyo, the Dissonanze Festival in Rome, in front of 6000 enthusiastically screaming people at PollerWiesen open Air in Cologne, gigs in the USA, the Middle East, Africa or Asia, the Italoboyz are handled as one of the hottest and most wanted newcomer. Their first live set presented in front of hundreds of thousand people at Loveparade in Dortmund this year is for sure the highlight of their career so far…

Besides touring Federico and Marco spent every free minute in the studio. They are working on their next EP for Get Physical Music and also on a full length album which will be finished for a release next year…

A life ‘without moving’ was never a serious option for these two…

CRAZY P

We Love Space / 2020 vision // London (UK)

With one of the best live dance music shows on the planet, Crazy P have been leaving their mark on the landscape of British dance music for the last 15 years.

To trace the origins of Crazy P we have to go all the way back to 1996.

This was the year that brought together James Baron and Chris Todd. It was the era of Ataris, Akais and bedroom studios and, through their love of bending and reshaping old records from many different genres, a production partnership was born in the backstreets of Nottingham.

After a couple of releases under various different monikers, the work attracted the ears of deep house label Paper Recordings based in Manchester and the creature that is Crazy P was born.

We won’t bore you all with and year by year history of what happened next and how we ended up with a name like Crazy P as rumour and speculation are far more interesting than the truth.

Their first four albums ‘A Nice Hot Bath With’(1999), ‘The Wicked Is Music’ (2002), and ’24 Psychedelic Freakout’ (2003), and ‘A Night On Earth’ (2004), coupled with the addition of live band members Tim Davies, Matt Klose, and the vocals of the inimitable Danielle Moore saw Crazy P gain acclaim, record sales, DJ gigs, and most pertinently, live shows, across the world.

Equally at home on huge outdoor festival stages in Australia or basement sweatboxes in East London, Crazy P have made their name with a unerring combination of lushly structured songs and live power, whilst never forgetting their roots on the dance floors of the late 90s’ house, disco, and soul clubs.

2008 saw Crazy P sign with 2020 Vision – a natural fit for the band with their their roots in early house and techno, and an eye to the future of both.

‘Stop Space Return’ (2008) was the superb first fruit of this new label hook up, with the album’s title track becoming something of an anthem for both DJs and as part of the band’s live show.

Preceding the return to fashion for disco and boogie by about two years, ‘Stop Space Return’ showed a new breed of producers that Crazy P were right on top of their game – with the ‘new school’ of Artists like Jamie Jones, Wolf and Lamb, Reboot, and KiNK on the phone for remixes, alongside pop acts such as VV Brown, Empire of the Sun, and Sam Sparro who all wanted a little bit of discoid magic

All of which brings us bang up into 2011. The start of the year saw them releasing ‘Crazy P presents MTS Vol.1’ a two track EP of ‘bangers’ influenced by their increasingly busy DJ and Soundsystem show schedule – and a nice drop of ‘P’ business whilst they finished off their new, and fifth album.

Just released on 2020 Vision, the brand new album ‘When We On’ is already being hailed as one of their finest. Boom.
