Manhattan Projject (Kev O'Brien & Chris Luzz) [Stranjjur, NYC]
The Manhattan Project was a research and development program, led by the United States with participation from the United Kingdom and Canada, that produced the first atomic bomb during World War II. Fast forward 60+ years and the Project has been resurrected - in musical form - by New York electronic music producers, Kev Obrien and Chris Luzz.
In physics, when scientists mix certain volatile chemicals together, the process results in a chemical reaction that at times can be explosive and highly volatile. Yet when the smoke settles, the various chemicals have fused together to form an entirely new substance; many times more volatile and dynamic than the sum of it's parts. This is precisely what occurred the very first time Kev Obrien and Chris Luzz stepped into the studio together. Their first piece of work together; a remix of Ruthit's "I Feel" on Chicago's Fresh Meat Records; was quickly discovered and put into the regular rotation of Hot Natured's Jamie Jones, which subsequently created a global demand for their sound, prompting several well-respect labels to approach them for additional remix work; labels such as Save Room and Loco Records.
In September of 2011, Kev's new Stranjjur Imprint label was born. Soon after the label's debut release (the Miami Vices EP by Lula Circus, with remixes from MANIK and Pezzner); Luzz joined in as the third label partner alongside Kev and Andy Inelli. The label has seen great success thus far, with it's future release schedule including artists such as Kris Wadsworth, Marcin Czubala, Tigerskin & Till von Sein, Audio Soul Project and many more.
Moving forward to 2012, the duo will now record for Stranjjur, under the Manhattan Project guise; focusing on a deep and complex sound that nods it's cap to Chicago, Detroit, Miami and most heavily toward New York; the city they call home. Hundreds of hours of field recordings have been compiled during the duo's daily travels in and around the 5 boroughs; with the intention to not only incorporate the sounds of New York into the music, but to allow the sounds of New York to BE the music.
Patrick Barry [Key Street Music/The Red Door - Boston]
Every DJ gets his start by sharing in an experience, be it at a club, festival or after hours party, where a connection to the music is born. Patrick Barry began checking out Boston's club scene at a very early age, frequently attending high profile nights at Boston's renown Avalon nightclub, supporting local talent at Avalon's neighbor and sister club, Axis, and partying the night away at Boston's Rise after hours club. Over several years he slowly immersed himself into Boston's musical melting pot, becoming friends with DJs and producers a like.
With a dedication and desire to grow that is rarely seen in some new DJ's, Patrick honed his skills playing for Boston's eclectic musical community at different house parties, sharing deck time and gaining tips from Boston djs. In October of 2006, Patrick launched himself into the club scene with his first club gig at the infamous Venu nightclub, a notorious spot to launch and introduce new talent into the scene. It was here that Patrick's sound began to evolve and his love for techno grew to compliment his love for house music. His technical skills improving each time he stepped behind the decks, Patrick's undying desire to obtain every track he could to help polish his sound, grew and grew landing gigs regularly at throughout Boston as well as New York, Portland, Washington (D.C.), Providence, Portsmouth (NH), and Miami alongside djs such as Lee Burridge, Mr. C, Paul Woolford, Till Von Sein, Chloe Harris, Juan MacLean, Fred Everything, Clive Henry, Tanner Ross, Mike Swells, and Eli Wilkie.
In 2010, Patrick was named a resident at the famous Cambridge Wednesday night (now called Re:Set) @ The Phoenix Landing as well as Portsmouth's Red Door, regularly playing sets and helping to bring in top notch talent to the venues.
