-HORROR INC. LIVE-
Latest EP review:
Horror Inc. is one of the many aliases of Canadian Producer/dj, Marc Leclair. Mostly known for his work as Akufen, his Horror Inc. productions started in 2003 with a release on Revolver Recordings followed by some things on the Berlin based imprint "Perlon". A label of which he is to release a full length album later this year, under the Horror Inc. moniker. This will be some of the only things we've heard from Marc in quite awhile, aside from his Horror Inc. release,"Aurore" that was released in 2010 on "Haunt", a newer label started by fellow Canadian Mike Shannon.
Be ready to not be ready for anything. Who knows where Marc will take us on this special occasion?
-MIKE SHANNON -
Any historian who takes it upon themselves to pen the tale of Canadian electronic in the years to come will most certainly find the name Mike Shannon figures early and often in itâ€™s telling. From his humble beginnings in the sleepy suburban town of Kitchener Ontario, the last 15 years have seen him become an internationally lauded producer with albums on 3 of the industryâ€™s most respected labels (Plus 8, Force Inc, ~Scape), as well as a steady stream of consistently charted singles and remixes.
A true â€œDJâ€™s DJâ€, he has won legions of fans and the respect of his peers alike for his deep crates and lightning fast mixing skills. And while some may suggest he has gravitated towards smoother, deeper selections as the years go by, those in the know will tell you he has few equals when it comes to whipping dance floors into a relentless techno frenzy should you catch him on a night with that mischievous twinkle in his eye.
Those fortunate enough to catch one of Mikeâ€™s rare live performances are encouraged to do so with an open mind, as it is in this context that the breadth of his creativity truly shines. From the shuffling house and techno of his solo performances to the narcotic jazz of his new Blue Fields project alongside singer Fadila and guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto, his is a musical vision which easily wriggles free of the usual genre signifiers and pays grand dividends to those with the good sense to get nice and close to the speakers; the devil is most certainly in the details as the old saying goes.
Yet beyond all of this, perhaps his greatest achievement has been his unfailing support of the music and people he loves. As head A&R and damn near everything else of Cynosure and formerly Revolver Canada Recordings (alongside Jeff Milligan) for over 10 years, Mike has shown an uncanny ability to select and release tracks which have become go-to fixtures in the sets of the industryâ€™s best DJs, as well as introducing the world to the work of some of his nearest and dearest before anyone knew their names (Akufen, Deadbeat, Ernesto Ferrerya). Far from pursuing the next one hit wonder or sound of the season, his steadfast curatorial vision and passion for the music have earned him the trust of discerning music connoisseurs the world over.
For almost a decade, Vincent Lemieux has played an integral role in Montrealâ€™s internationally acclaimed dance-music community. Lemieux is man who wears many different hats: curator, label owner, DJ, producer, taste-makerâ€¦ this is a man who has done it all and inflected every project in his association with an indelible personal style.
Internationally, Vince is probably best known as one of the curators behind Montrealâ€™s MUTEK Festival. Since 2000, he has helped shape his hometown conception of progressive electronic music through the acts he brings to town. When not programming the festival, Lemieux hosts two of the most cutting-edge techno weeklies in the city. His long-running Tuesday night at Salon DaomÃ©, where he DJâ€™s alongside world-class talent, has become a staple in Montrealâ€™s nightlife. Claude Von Stroke, Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Zip, Sammy D, theyâ€™ve all graced the decks at DaomÃ© courtesy of Vince.
As label owner of Musique RisquÃ©e, which he started with Akufenâ€™s Marc Leclair, Lemieux is also responsible for fostering local and international talent. The label has released work by Atom TM, Akufen, Bruno Pronsatto, The Mole, Jichael Mackson, Guillaume & the Coutu-Dumonts, Philippe Cam, and others. Musique RisquÃ©e tracks have been featured on compilations by Crosstown Rebels, Tigersushi, Fabric, and Freud Am Tanzen. Vince has also spawned the cityâ€™s SoirÃ©e RisquÃ©e nights, now with over 30 incarnations, showcasing the labelâ€™s fine roster to enthusiastic fans.
Yet it is his work as a DJ that has caught the ears of the most listeners. Lemieux has toured the world as an ambassador for Montrealâ€™s distinctive brand of micro-house. As the official MUTEK DJ, his sets have been a staple of festival showcase from China to Paris to Berlin and back. His DJing skills have found fervent followers all over the world, at events in Spain (Sonar), Mexico (MUTEK_MX), Chile (MUTEK_CL), and Argentina (MUTEK_AR).
Since 2005, Lemieux has been expanding into music production through collaborations with Guillaume Coutu-Dumont (as Flabbergast) and Stephen BeauprÃ© (as Brandy Snifter). In the next year, focus will shift increasingly to recording music and moving into the one domain of electronic music he has yet to conquer.
--CESARE VS. DISORDER-
Dumb Unit, Vakant, Serialism /// Berlin
Over the past few years, Italian producer Cesare Marchese aka Cesare vs Disorder's (also Queen Atom/CEZ/Sire Cactus) unique productions and performances behind the decks have gained him recognition within the underground house and techno worldwide community.
In addition to the demanding job of running labels Mean and Serialism together with a Lon- don/Berlin based team, he consistently releases on internationally recognized labels such as Vakant (Germany), Dumb Unit (Canada), Clink (USA) Stock5 (Germany), Thema (USA), Safari Elec- tronique (Uk), SthlmAudio (Switzerland), Archipel (Canada), Remake Musique (France), Resopal (Germany), to name a few.
Since being named one of Beatport's Ones to Watch' in 2009, Cesare has traversed the globe, playing at some of the best clubs alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. This summer he built upon his growing international profile with a successful debut at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival as well as the usual showcases at Sonar in Barcelona.
When he's not traveling, Cesare spends his time in the studio, the fruits of his labor included in a number of compilations. In 2009, his track "Mean Land" (Thema) was featured on the Co- coon compilation "Sound of the Tenth Season: mixed by Sven Vath. As Queen Atom, his track "Enemy Of Time" was included on the 3rd Watergate CD mixed by Konrad Black. This year, a track from his "Le Plaisir" EP on Clink Recordings, co-produced with Mikael Stavostrand, was added to Camea's well-received Clinkology compilation and also included on the acclaimed Damian Lazarus' "Get Lost Vol.4" compilation on CrossTown Rebels.
Currently, Cesare continues to add to his prolific body of work, by dropping two EP's on Dumb Unit with Jeremy Caulfield and Mikael Stavostrand, a ep with Inxec, Konrad Black & Cesar Merveille that will hit the street in the next months. Never slowing down, he also just completed a remix for Bang On out on Ninja Tune's hip-hop imprint, Big Dada.
Having lived for many years in London, last year Cesare relocated to Berlin, a city that he's always held close to his heart, and is currently working on his first album due in Winter 2012. With a new residency at Kater Holzig (new Bar25), a Serialism label night at Watergate and a Mean re- cord night at Weekend Club, Cesare continues to set
Berlin's nightlife ablaze.
Sushitech, Harry Klein /// Berlin
When Julietta discovered the first House parties in the early nineties, Moodymann and Maurizio were two of the producers who captivated her so strongly that she began digging for electronic music by herself. Regularly she remained in miscellaneous record shops, always in search for some new chicago house and detroit records â€“ at that time still without any dj ambitions. She did an interstation at the radio, where she moderated one of the first shows for electronic music throughout south germany. At the end of the nineties she had her first gig at the legendary Ultraschall in Munich, where she was offered a residency straight away.
She always was an activist in Munich nightlife and over the years she already gained an excellent reputation far beyond the German borders â€“ at renowned venues like for instance Panoramabar (Berlin), Watergate (Berlin), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Rex (Paris), Fabric (London), Eleven (Tokyo), Arma17 (Moscow), Flex (Vienna), Club 11 (Amsterdam), Bar13 (New York), Kontrol (San Francisco), Cocoliche (Buenos Aires), Cocoon (Frankfurt) as well as festivals like Love Parade or Sonnemondsterne. In the meantime, after almost 100 gigs worldwide in the year 2007, she counts besides the famous Harry Klein an increasing number of resident clubs in Europe.
Her style varies somewhere between House and Techno with all its facets and stands out with a mind-blowing mixture of rare old and modern tracks. she has a specific intuition for the right record on the dancefloor, where she manages to build a set that hooks the listener until the last record.
2009 she founded the in-house label Harry Klein Records, together with the rest of the residents of the club. The first record was released beginning of 2010.
The same year she was asked to become part of the eminently respected label Sushitech, one of her favourites for a long time. She is going to release a 2 x 12â€œ compilation together with Sushitechâ€™s labelhead Yossi Amoyal in spring/summer 2012 and started to play for their label nights all around the world.
