Protoculture is one of only a few South African producers to get the combination right and become a truly worldwide sensation. The Cape Town-based dj and producer went from headlining festivals on the local Psytrance scene each season, to living on international rotation and playing to audiences upwards of 150 000 people. His trademark melodic and uplifting sound has been played in all four corners of the globe, with gigs taking him to super clubs and incredible festivals in London, Tokyo, San Paulo, Moscow and everywhere in between. As his rise took momentum and his gigs became more prolific, Protoculture shifted gear with ease; evolving his sound as, more often, he found himself billed alongside iconic dj’s from the world of Trance.
One of SA’s most successful exports to date, Nate Raubenheimer aka Protoculture, was sucked into the art of music production at a young age, becoming obsessed with synthesizers, computers and electronic music. He studied Audio Engineering in pursuit of a professional music career and his calling as a live performer and dj took off at great speed; his first artist album, “Refractions” on Nano Records became an international Psytrance success. Diversifying his sound whilst still flying the flag high for South Africa, Protoculture has accessed the next realm of his music career and carved himself a place on the Electronic map with the best
of them. His third studio album “Love Technology” expressed exactly how far he’s come and set the stage for an esteemed future in Trance music.
To date he’s played on every major continent, and received much praise for his energetic and emotional live shows, headlining at festivals like
Glastonbury and Ministry of Sound in the UK, Creamfields and XXXperience in Brazil, Earthcore Global Carnival in Australia and Ageha in Japan."
Protoculture has played alongside artists such as Paul van Dyk, Sasha, John 00 Flemming, Infected Mushroom, Orbital, Juno Reactor, Sander van Doorn and most recently, being the only local artist to play alongside Armin van Buuren on his A State of Trance 500 (ASOT500) Tour to South Africa. Van Buuren is closely following Protoculture’s career, announcing “Everything he touches turns to musical gold” on his A State of Trance Podcast in 2010 and picking Protoculture as a ‘Future Favourite’ on his ASOT Radio show.
Protoculture’s new music direction has seen releases on Armada Records, Anjuna Beats and Rebrand Records, which have been playlisted by Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Above and Beyond, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk and Gareth Emery. Striving to work outside the borders of regular genres, whilst maintaining his signature uplifting style saw Protoculture earn a SAMA nomination for his remix work on the Goldfish smash hit, “Cruising Through” on Pacha Recordings. His most recent collaborations with Trance producer Max Graham have been receiving incredible support, their remix of the classic track ‘It’s Not Over’ by Grace flew up the charts to the number 1 position on Beatport. Still to come in 2011, Protoculture headlines with Gareth Emery and Dash Berlin when Godskitchen makes its annual visit to South Africa in September.

:::. SIDE LINER
(Cosmicleaf rec. GR)
Side Liner began as a project in 2004 by Nick Miamis in Athens, Greece to explore the emotional side of music and give shape to the events of the day. His music is best noted for the continuous flow of thought it creates, often visually stimulating and evocative of a particular mood — without the jarring interruptions of so much of today’s electronic and chillout music.
The sounds created by Nick in his studio by the sea are heartfelt expressions of his concerns for the future — whatever it may bring.
Side liner has released 6 full albums: “Emotional Diving” (2006), “Once Upon A Time” (2007), “My Guardian Angel” (2008) ,”Crying Cities” (2009), ”Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle” (2009) , “Human Recycle” (2010) all through Cosmicleaf Records.
Miamis often releases “beta” versions of a track through Last.fm and other music channels on the web to get feedback from the public before finalizing an album. He personally reads and often responds to the feedback he receives through “shouts”. His broken English is testament to his desire to get everything he does “just right”, and the final production is usually flawless.
The critics have taken note of the body of work from Miamis and have begun to help spread the word— or the music.
Going back to 1993 Mikee began his musical journey into DJing as a resident DJ at Factory Club in Athens. Inspired from Detroit underground techno sounds and afro beats, combined with his wide music knowledge he created a unique tribal techno style of his own which made him push his sound a little bit more to the diverse techno DJ sets everyone now recognizes In the underground scene of Athens.
Mikee quickly started to promote his own Club nights in Athens along with his partner Lorenzo and in a short period of time ‘qbase’ nights became the most famous and prestigious Club nights in town. Until now Qbase has managed to stay at top nights in Athens with international bookings of the most high-profile DJs and producers from Europe and US.
In mid 2001 he had the chance to write the music for a theatrical play in Athens. He joined the "Theater of the South" and wrote the entire music for the show “God is a DJ" by the German author Falk Richter. In 2009 he had the opportunity to write the music for another one theatrical play, collaborating this time with the theatrical group ‘OPERA’ and wrote the music for Moliere’s ‘MISANTHROPE’.
Mikee has also managed to create tracks as unique as his DJ sets developing a sound, combining the hard edges of the underground with the groovy and intelligent beats of Detroit techno. He combined forces with many names of the techno scene of Greece, like Mikael Delta, DJ Stefan and DJ Savage. He released an EP with DJ Savage at Kinetik Records Greece under the name S+M Project, number of tracks were included to several Greek CD compilations, 8 mixed CD DJ sets called technoforms for greek music magazines, and a release on September 2006 under the name Mike Harris (with Mihalis Safras) La Luna EP, on Funktion Records 07, France. Recent works will soon be released through record labels.
Mikee’s future is looking forward and promising as he is entirely focused in his studio work, preparing tracks for the next step ahead; a label of his own that will boom into the underground dance scene very soon!
For him the top peak of his DJ career was the invitation of London’s most famous underground club Fabric along with top class DJs and producers. Since then he has been a resident DJ at various Clubs including U-matic and on Blend and Qbase events.
