Following a stellar year in 2011 in which they brought you the likes of; Joris Voorn, Marco Carola, Adam Beyer, Matthias Tanzmann, Davide Squillace, John Digweed, Stacey Pullen, Guti - and many more, Nic Fanciulli's SAVED RECORDS returns to it's hometown prepped and ready for 2012.
NIC FANCIULLI (SAVED RECORDS)
Nic Fanciulli is a DJ, producer and label owner who has remained one of the UK’s finest exports in electronic music throughout the last decade. A Grammy nominated producer, Nic has worked with artists as diverse as Underworld, Kylie Minogue, U.N.K.L.E, Loco Dice, Josh Wink and Tracey Thorn in addition to producing a plethora of solo club focused tracks that have achieved both critical and commercial acclaim. Now releasing on the likes of Rejected and Souvenir, Nic is responsible for a high output of a sleek, intelligent yet driving strain of house and techno.
LOCO DICE (DESOLAT)
Every so often a DJ or producer comes along who inspires the collective imagination.
If you’ve seen Loco Dice perform at his ten-year-long Tribehouse residency in his hometown Düsseldorf, or at DC- 10 in Ibiza (from ’02-’06), you will have clicked to this. Loco Dice is someone, who can puzzle together intangible moods with a direct approach.
Even if life tends to be unpredictable, a little chancey, the next move doesn’t have to be a gamble. In fact, Loco Dice shows via his compositions that it can be very well planned. Listen to his music, imagine the cinematic accompaniments, and you’ll understand how something carefully constructed can begin with a flight of fancy, or a roll of the dice.
DANNY DAZE (HOT CREATIONS, NOIR MUSIC)
Raised in Miami, Fl. Daze is influenced by his Cuban culture, thus giving him the latin influence heard in some of his music and Dj sets. With other influences by Giorgio Moroder and Anthony Rother, Daze's Dj sets are deeply commanded by Detroit Techno and Italo Disco.
ALEX NERI (SCI+TECH, SUARA)
Alex’s talent has taken him around Europe’s best venues as well as all over the world, while being resident dj every Saturday at Tenax, Florence, for Nobody’s Perfect house night, certainly one of the hottest and innovative spot for Italian house clubbers.
ALEX TEPPER (SAVED, REKIDS)
Alex Tepper is the power behind the throne. You may scratch your head upon hearing his name, but be damn sure you’ve heard some of the hundreds of releases that have been touched by his hands in almost 20 years in the business. Working behind enemy lines under a variety of pseudonyms or as collaborator to some of the biggest names in house music, his releases have had everyone from Pete Tong to Kevin Saunderson heaping plaudits on them.
ROSS EVANA (SAVED, COCOON)
2010 saw the introduction of a new artist project. Ross Evana was born with an exciting new sound and 7 years experience of playing dance floors around the globe under his previous guise. Ross' sound incorporates his house roots into a unique tech groove with cool melodies and a funk undercurrent.
Joining Nic, Loco Dice, Danny Daze, Alex Neri and Alex Tepper on the night will be;
