Biography of 9west
|Real name / || |
9west is a project of Tiki and George and both live in Thessaloniki /Greece.
They work as DJs and producers since 1998.
The structure of a 9west set is very different; they like to play several styles in one set like house, techno, dub or electronica.
Tikis and George have published their tracks and mixes at labels like Dessous Recordings, Liebe*Detail,Nite Grooves, King Street Sound,MUSIK GEWINNT FREUNDE, Back & Forth and many others.
9west production is based on vintage instruments like original drumsets and live played perc, slap basses, organs, strings, blend with electronic cords, leads, sounds and effects and atmospheric pads.
Their music can be described as deep-house and tech-house enriched with the distinctive mood of the analogue warmth.
Both love the deeper side of music with many jazz and soul elements , but every time raw and kicking.
Their music is free of crippling nostalgia and rather wins you over with consistency, tension, and dynamics and time and time again with a sensibility, one would usually expect from house music. In this vein, 9west pursues an unexacting fusion of quantum jumps and tradition – including effortless melodies or hook lines.
Very quickly the songs of 9west entered on top charts of deep house music
Overall his Djing career, 9west has made appearances all over Greece, but also abroad such as in Berlin, Paris, Frankfurt, Budapest, Rome, Ohrid ,Mexico city ,Guadalajara plus many more.
