An industries most cutting-edge Secret Guest from the most well-know labels - TBA at the Night
Continuing over the last twelve months to champion music that is true to itself, Adam Shelton has an unshakeable focus on quality underground house. His debut EP ‘Air Trax’, due in February 2011 on air london, is part of a relentless effort to sketch out his own definition of authenticity. From sultry and atmospheric sounds to the acid-drenched and techy, the EP embodies the energy of his current musical course.
His skills, versatility and range as a DJ have seen him guest at some of the world’s best clubbing spots including Panorama Bar, Cocoon, Glastonbury Festival, Space in Ibiza and most recently Harry Klein in Munich and London clubbing mecca Fabric – but as a producer there is much on offer.
His work with sparring partner Subb_an brings a raw and retro-funk sound, which is clearly demonstrated on their joint EPs ‘It’s Time’ and ‘The Muzik’. Similarly, their edits under the S.A.S. moniker have increasingly found notoriety as the insider’s weapon of choice. ‘In The Candy Store’ has featured prominently on discerning dancefloors worldwide, spun by Seth Troxler, Craig Richards, Heidi, Lee Burridge and Lee Curtiss, amongst others. Meanwhile the early 90’s feel of ‘Give it to You’ perfectly demonstrates an insight into the US house-loving side of Adam’s taste.
Entering its second year, his label One Records is a stronghold for emerging UK talent, having showcased the sounds of Seelie, Jordan Peak and Death on the Balcony alongside more established, but no less fresh, heads like Geddes, Burnski and Jozif. Additionally trans-Atlantic aficionados Shaun Reeves and Kris Wadsworth have recently contributed. Dreamt up with long time partner Subb-an at The Rainbow Pub, the label aims to encapsulates the vibe of artists and crowds that Adam has connected with most. More than just his literal home, The Rainbow has become a meeting place for likeminded innovators, upstarts and party people from all corners of the country.
One of the UK’s most diverse and talked about small venues, The Rainbow is fertile ground for Adam to experiment with a wide range of musical styles, not least at his own party Below, now in its sixth year. The coming year will see Adam release on labels 2020 Vision, Magicbag, Illusion and Smoke City, as well as a continued dedication to One Records. With this inexorable drive, it can truly be said that despite having already delivered a great deal, we have still only skimmed the surface of Adam’s talent.
His artistic yet structured approach to expressionism crosses over from architecture into dj’ing and production, dedicating himself tirelessly to music research and the philosophies and components of sound structure. The result; an artist who has an ever increasing catalogue of knowledge, taste and skill providing what appears to be a long road ahead of him. A constantly evolving ear adds to his progression as producer;
Claus continues to work in the studio on solo projects and collaborations with a series of other artists. Fearless and defiant to trends and hype, Voigtmann is defining himself day by day as an artist that will go from strength to strength.
Intricately chosen depths, smooth jazz, sensual house, deep bass lines and raw and tough minimal and techno elements filter their way through a collage of powerful and provoking soundscapes. The effect is more than just dance worthy but a solid musical experience spun with clear technical competence There is no such way to define what Claus produces when behind the decks, only that its intelligence and musical ability is always prominent and never dull. Claus is a regular on London and Europe’s circuit, having played at many established clubs and underground warehouse parties in London, Ibiza, Geneva, Berlin and Nuremburg and alongside a host of the industries most highly regarded names.
Toi.Toi, run by Claus Voigtmann and Isis Salvaterra is a London based promotion which focuses on bringing what the two believe to be the finest electronic musicians from around the globe to showcase their dj and live works. Fiercely talent driven and with no compromise on quality, Toi.Toi has become one of London’s most respected and definitive nights within the city’s dance music realm playing host to Jan Krueger, Sammy Dee, Audio Werner and Jin Choi amongst others. With Claus as resident, the eyes and ears of the industry are seeing just what this German artist is all about.
Greg Brockmann’s involvement in sound began in 2005 in Marseille, South of France. An avid fan of all things house and techno since a young age and influenced by an upbringing full of music and its constant ability of expressionism, his passion transcended into a desire to be part of the dj world itself.
In 2007 he moved to London and it was here that things started to move forward for Greg as he met and began collaborating with other up and coming musicians in London’s electronic music scene. A couple of years after landing in London Greg found himself playing at TBar, Kubicle, Shoplifter and more, as well as various underground London movements. Late 2009 and Half Baked was born, now East London’s most desired Sunday party destination. Greg, alongside his fellow Half Baked residents Robin Ordell, Hamid, Seuil, Le Loup and Yakine bring their varied styles of deep sexy house, progressive techno and floor moving sets at every Half Baked, sharing the booth with some of the industry’s favoured names including Craig Richards, Jamie Jones, Mayaan Nidam, Jozif, Shonky, Shaun Reeves, Varoslav, Lee Curtiss, Guti, Dyed Soudorom, Julietta, Vera , amongst others. Greg also runs one of the city’s best mid-week floor shows, Scandal, playing host to local talent and headliners from London and Europe.
Greg Brockmann’s sets are a mixture of deep house with a strong techno feel. Heavy reverberating bass lines and strong Latin percussion weave their way in between sensual house inspired vocals and industrial samples add another platform to his sound. Pulling us inside a landscape of experimentation while focusing on the mindset behind his music and ideas, we see Greg take things to another level within the complexity of sound.
