-Paolo Mojo Bio-
Paolo Mojo is now established as an acknowledged leading light on the underground house music scene. Already a highly respected DJ, his relentless production schedule throughout 2008 has sky rocketed him into the production premier league.
2008 saw him a virtual ever present on BBC’s Radio One Essential Selection / Mix with 7 singles on his Oosh label getting constant radio airplay.
An Essential New Tune for ‘Nightlaw’ in February was followed by one of the most well received Essential Mixes of the year in August, and Paolo was name checked as one of Pete Tong’s hottest producers of the year.
Its easy to see why, his stylish, turbo charged tech house sound has been one of the success stories of 2008… singles such as Brooksong, The Dancer, Interstellar, Home, Sirena, Nightlaw and Ron Hardy Said (in collaboration with Jim Rivers) have led people to start talking about the Paolo Mojo ‘sound’.
The next monstrous single Deux Ex Machina / Que Loucura De Som looks set to continue that into 2009 while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of what people expect from his sound.
His remixing skills are now in high demand; his take on Moonface U Get So Give was the highest selling remix in the recent high profile Bedrock 10 release, a triple album containing classic reworks from the likes of Steve Lawler, Tom Middleton and Guy Gerber. Other remixes for Factomania, Little Mountain, Curfew More recent remix work is about to drop for Nervous, Postiva, Ego Records and Spin Out.
Despite the frantic pace in the studio he's constantly touring the globe. A true ‘international’, there are not many countries that haven’t had a touch of the Mojo magic these days. He's earned himself a formidable global fan base thanks to his hectic schedule... from London to LA, Sao Paulo to Sydney, Toronto to Tokyo... Paolo has graced the decks of the worlds finest clubs.
This is no overnight success story either. Go back into the last few years and productions such as 2007's JMJ (Pete Tong's 'tune of the summer at Pure Pacha'), the legendary 1983 - remixed by his close friend Eric Prydz into one of the anthems of 2006 - or his highly sought after remixes for the likes for Pryda, NRK, and Factomania have all done the damage.
Described by IDJ as a master of the mix cd, you need look no further than his award winning Balance 009 for EQ Recordings, or his Renaissance Digital 001 for evidence of the man’s ability to build a set.
And now 2 years after his last cd release, Paolo follows on from Gui Borrato by jumping on board an exciting new series - Addicted from Platipus Music. An innovative double disc combination of studio work and live on location DJing, Paolo’s first mix compilation for two years will be released in May 2009.
With an astonishing work ethic in the studio and his endless special re-edits, he's an innovative DJ whose innovative programming combines with enviable technical ability to make him one of the most popular fixtures on the underground touring scene.
-Timmy & Tommy-
Since their first single release in 2006, Timmy & Tommy have gone on to win multiple awards for their productions and record label Full Tilt Recordings and since then have been at the forefront of the Irish Producers rise on the global dance music scene and are now regarded as one of the most versatile and respected producers from the Emerald Isle.
In 2008 the pair released their first single on Full Tilt Recordings and in two short years established itself as one of the most consistently successful Irish dance music labels in the history of Irish club culture.It won Best Label at the Irish Dance Music Awards in 2009 and 2010 and has received plaudits
and plays from internationally respected DJs such as Eddie Halliwell, Sander van Doorn, Tiesto, Marco V, Paul Oakenfold and Carl Cox.
From the outset the stamp was keen to avoid being pigeon holed, and its release schedule has taken in a diverse and always vanguard selection of the best quality house, techno, trance, electro and progressive music from both Ireland and around the globe.
Full Tilt also won a Best Single gong at the 2009 Irish Dance Music Awards for Full Tiltin by Timmy & Tommy, who themselves won Best New Artists in 2008 and have been nominated in numerous other categories over the past three years.
Together since 1995, the pair are renowned and admired universally for visceral DJ skills and boundless production talents, but their massive talent as shrewd A&R men is often overlooked. Every single release on Full Tilt has a package to marvel and Gibson and Conway have repeatedly illustrated
a knack for spotting talent that is becoming a key foundation in the empire they are building.
Having cut their teeth as engineers by studying and ultimately teaching at the Sound Training Centre in Dublin's Temple Bar earlier this decade, the visionaries dreamed of establishing a similar cuttingedge studio facility in the north west to pass on their wisdom to the region's aspiring music
producers ad DJs.
Timmy & Tommy's monthly radio show Tiltin Session has grown from strength to strength since it conception in 2008 and can now be heard on Di.FM internationally, on DMH on Kiss FM in Austrialia, on iDance on 105-107 FM in Ireland and now reaches over 75,000 people across the world.
But perhaps what is most exciting about them is their unswerving belief that the best is yet to come. They have already achieved so much but wilfully admit that Full Tilt has only just begun. The future of Irish dance music looks very exciting.
