| Shaun Reeves |
The last few years have seen Shaun blossom in the studio, both on his own for New York’s Wolf+Lamb, as ‘The Royal We’ with Seth Troxler for Crosstown Rebels, alongside Guti and Miss Fitz for Wolf+Lamb and Raum...musik and most recently as Visionquest remixing Tracey Thorn (for Strange Feeling), doP & Seuil (for Eklo) and Paul Ritch & D’Julz (for Quartz Music).
When he’s not conjuring up bombs in the studio or trawling through record shops and the farthest reaches of the internet in search of forgotten gems and untapped jams, that sound decidedly fresh and exciting, Shaun remains committed to pushing all genres of dance music forward. His is music not just for the dance floor, but also for the body, soul...and brain. As the recent resurgence of interest in the border between house and techno makes all too clear, Shaun has always been one to set musical trends rather than follow them.
| Anthony Collins |
Anthony describes his style as a mix of deep house, house, minimal and deep tech. He’s not the type who puts one hit record after another but always blends meticulously chosen tracks with a real artistic reason to it.
Anthony’s music is very successful though. Matter of fact he has released many EPs on very high-quality labels. Among which loads of European labels created in the early 00s which are inflaming the current scene such as Get Physical, -t and Vakant, the Belgian Curle, Jay Haze’s Tuning Spork, resopal,or Brothers’ Vibe’s Mixx records.. Freak n’Chic, Mule Electronic and Liebe Detail also complete the prestigious endless list of labels he already worked with! Collins also made remixes for Remote area, Safari Electronic, Nice Cat ( Los Updates Label ). Indeed His talent and style allowed him to remix in his artistic view huge artists like Ricardo Villalobos , los updates , Cesare vs Disorder , Alejandro Vivanco , Boris Werner.. & 2010 still sees new signatures.. for example with the American giant and true pioneer of the deep house music Ibadan (founded in 1996). The Famous German
Last but not least he produced In 2009, his first ever album “Doubts & Shouts” on cutting edeg label Freak’n’chic, and revealed to be a frank success. Speaking of success, it seems that Anthony Collins is flying from one to another. Indeed, he is now preparing the coming of his new record dedicated to Curle records anniversary; and a few others productions with poker flat, horizontal music ( Dinky’s Label), And remixes for artists such as Bruno Pronsato …. Anthony Collins production skills have reached another level and the quality of his tracks is permanently increasing. Music may take a lot of his time, but no worries, Anthony Collins and his charming smile still have time and energy to make you dance.
