? Hideout Showcase?
Positioning itself free from stereotypes associated with so many record labels in our day and age, like Techno, Minimal or House, Hideout
(established in 2009),is proving with each and every release that you do not need to pigeon-hole yourself to be successful.Housing tracks by some of the best underground musicians; D'Julz, Jamie Jones,Martin Buttrich, Robert Dietz and SIS are just some of the artists that stain the young Hideout catalogue.
The lovechild of DJ supremo’s Luca Bacchetti and Davide Squillace, its trademark is sexy, quality dance music - a true reflection of its creators. Bringing together a collection of artists, mixing different tastes and backgrounds has created something new: Hideout Music. Its destiny to be big is already written and the imprint stands as a leading new label in underground sound.
In keeping with Rhythmatic’s hunger for firsts, the team take their stellar
atmosphere, re-employ their enviable production skills and dust-off the warehouse,presenting Hideout’s debut UK showcase. Teasing the decks in addition to Rhythmatic resident, Stathis Lazarides will be label bosses Luca Bacchetti and Davide Squillace.
Responsible for epic moments such as UK exclusive Cavo Paradiso showcases, touring Greece with the likes of Carl Cox and exceptional appearances by Marco Carola, Rhythmatic are ready to compose yet another page in London’s monumental clubbing history book.

Currently residing in Barcelona, the DJ, producer and co-label head of Hideout makes swift business of spreading his signature twists and musical turns through myriad productions and remixes released on Ovum Recordings, Wagon Repair, Supernature, Be As One, Tenax, Safari Electronique, Sci+Tec and of course, Hideout. Additionally, he’s accrued a host of accolades including a nod for Beatport’s Best Artist in 2008 that confirms Luca’s status asan industry leader. As a DJ, Bacchetti’s style is incomparable, showcasing his unique ear for selection and rare ‘voice’ to which he adds a sexiness uncommon amongst his peers. Equally versed at moving a dark basement club to fits of revelry as he is to casting a deep shadow across a sunny beach party, the breadth and depth of sources from which Luca culls his sets astounds constantly. It is this duality of emotion that interests the DJ and inspires the work on many releases, specifically his last – The Endless Summer. The contrasting shades of Luca’s sound have not been lost on the world’s clubbing masses. International tours regularly bring his performances to the five continents and to the best clubs and festivals from Berlin to New York to Sydney, Ibiza, Tokyo and now London for Rhythmatic.
Born in Siena, raised in Naples, it took a trip to London for Davide to finally discover electronic music. Wooed by the mood and sound of the British scene, he returned to Naples flush with energy, excitement and a knowing that this new calling would consume him.
Having honed his craft at home, in 2004 Davide left Naples for Barcelona unwavering in his resolve. Now, while touring around the continent, he began to release in earnestwhat would become a massive body of work, and at a dizzying pace. His productions have graced the catalogs of some of the finest labels including Ovum, Sci+Tec, Morris Audio, Resopal Schallware, Supernature, CMYK, Adagio, Viva, Nervous, Saved, Shake, Rillis and more. Which is not even to speak of his curating and releasing on his own labels – Sketch, Minisketch, Vir, 500, Titbit and of course Hideout.
In addition to his genre-defining works, Davide continues to inspire and ignite dancefloors worldwide. Whether it be at Circoloco, where he has been a resident since 2007, Womb, Berghain, D.Edge, or any other marquee venue, Davide plays with an unequalled funk and excitement. His signature sets, revered by the masses and peers alike, do a double duty in guarding our much-loved traditions while constantly pushing them forward.
Stathis Lazarides has the musical ethos and mentality of an artist who finds it impossible to compromise with trends and to specify genres when in the studio or at the DJ booth. Music has been his foremost priority for 20 years and the concept of sitting down to compose in his studio without a specific plan, mainly working on impulse, is for him the building block of underground music.
Stathis has also the driving musical force behind the Rhythmatic moniker, and along with his now 13 year old residency with the infamous Cavo Paradiso (since 1998), Stathis holds the residency at extremely high regard. It is impossible to define his music style in a few concise words. Deep evolution? Funky sentiments? Dirty intentions? Atmospheric, unpretentious, quality underground music? Or a reflection to his emotions? His style obviously has a good presence of house and techno surrounded by a range of elements. But imagine what would happen if several people were asked to describe a very large and complex object that they don’t see, but could only feel. In this case the object seems to be music!
