Sascha Dive (Cocoon)
Whenever you start to think that dance music
Techno or House or Detroit and Berlin. Is better suited for elderly people, suddenly there is a silver light on the horizon. And at the moment, it is Sascha Dive who is shining really bright. This young man from Frankfurt and his label Deep Vibes Recordings is among the most promising new producers and companies in Germany at the moment who, despite clear references to early U.S.-American sounds, all have found their very own rhythm and style by now. And so has Sascha Dive (this is actually his real name!). Long before he turned 18 years old, he was deeply thrilled by the tapes his brother brought back home. He wanted to learn everything about this exciting music and hot nights out in clubs and at parties, for example Omen, XS, Wild Pitch Club or Robert-Johnson or DJs such as Ricardo Villalobos. And finally, Sascha Dive made his way into the coordinate system of Motor City in a more or less roundabout way. Records from Moodyman, Theo Parrish and Cie. telling stories about snoddy soul, flaky disco or shaking samplers are as inspiring to him as the dry funk and the abstract sounds from U.K. artists such as Baby Ford or Thomas Melchior. The inventive joint between these two styles can be found in Sascha's highly appreciated productions. Not to mention that he runs his label Deep Vibes Recordings all by himself and in a very characteristic style when it comes to artwork, A&R, remixes and productions. Moreover, he can look back on a number of extremely successful remixes and tracks released on labels such as Raum...musik and Drumpoet Community. Dive soon became famous for his first-class, deep House sounds with references to Scott Ferugson or master Tony Rodriguez. The reaction was enormous and rather unusual for this almost nihilist and cynical daily business and its innumerable records and releases. As a DJ, Sascha Dive does not hesitate to combine new and old, America and Europe, light grooves and finest melodies. He does not care whether a record is 10 years or 10 days old. What counts is its aesthetics and if the results fits in his sophisticated dramaturgy and subtlety of his set. Dive's DJ sets are characterized by his knowledge of Afro-American dance music he skilfully translates into the empiricism of the European club scene and sociology that is becoming more and more expressive....

The Matador Project was set up in December 2006 by Producer/Engineer/DJ "Gavin Lynch". This guise was simply intended for the writing & release of work created in the early hours…Nightworks, this time being when production is at its most natural for the 'Matador Sound'.
These early productions often went back and forth as they were road tested at various dj residencies in Dublin, '515@Tripod', 'Acii Disco', & the infamous 'Mixed Salad' parties. These nights & parties would pave the way, stimulate & energize this project & sound in a huge way for the years to come…..
Trained as a chef, sound engineer & music producer, Gavin has found his place comfortably in any creative environment, and takes great pride in the work & ethics involved. The journey into techno first began when listening to early dj compilations, 'Dave Clarkes World Service', 'Richie Hawtin's Decks Efx 909' and various others. These 2 particular mixes retained amazing tracklists & from listening to them over & over, whilst sourcing the singles on vinyl, production & engineering was the natural course to take. Understanding, educating, consuming, growing, with time & energy…
Having worked and experienced many studio environments, Gavin is now based in Dublin Ireland in his own production studio where, day to day, night to night, music is being created, drums processed, sound designed & tracks completed…
From the early success of his remix of 'Perc - Work Softer' which gained the support from top industry leaders, Gavin has gone on to a string of Releases & Remixes on some high end prints including; Trapez, Cocoon, 1605, Rekluse, Harthouse & many more…
More recently Gavin has been welcomed into the Minus family with a stellar remix of 'Bryan Zentz_D-Clash' on Plus 8, and his ever popular 'Kingswing Ep' on Minus. Both of these projects have been widely supported and have seen fantastic chart success.
Building on some solid production foundations & great live shows, this project continues to evolve & surprise with each week that passes…..keep watching…..
"Deep, Dark, Chuggy, Warped, Trippy, Driving….once its interesting…..im on it"
"ThanksMate" is a bond formed by two very talented producers and DJs from Italy in 2011.
The expression of "ThanksMate" has derived from a culture and country that has given them the opportunity and freedom to formulate their music ideas together. Thus, ThanksMate was born with an objective to produce and show their fans their gratitude for their passionate support.
Fabio Agostini originally comes from a Dark Techno background in which he has been placed on some of the most important labels such as Elektrax Recordings and Naked lunch to name a few.
He is also heavily supported by other famous DJs with the likes from Dave Clarke, Ben Sims, Chris Liebing, Alex Karakasis and many more. He has also entered strongly several times on the Beatport top 50 in the Techno category. His latest release was with Nachstrom Schallplatten and platimum records.
On the contrary, Merko Palomba has gathered an extensive wide range of experience within the Deep house scenario with a release out on Globox from Sasha Carassi and supported by Jeff Samuel,Ralf and many others.
This has then resulted in a fusion taste for music in which they have integrated their mix of passion and devotion for electronic music into a fresh new and funky beat that will let you jump all night long. Already having spinned together with DJs like Troy Pierce, Matt Tolfrey, Glimpse, Danny Benedittini and many more. These duo are hungry for music, always in search of new ideas and for that perfect drop, they will be releasing their taste of fusion music very soon. So watch out for this two very talented DJs as they ready to shake the world of music up.
