After rocking out our events on Romanian land, where techno is very much the country's underground language, we thought we'd be doing well bringing some of that Romanian essence on London grounds. So here we are, with a line-up comprised of pure Romanian underground right here in London town, the East side to be exact. Check out the itinerary and the artists and join us on the nighttrain! The journey starts at NOMAD / 58 Old Street, EC1V 9AJ , and we’ll take you for a hypnotic ride with some of the scene’s most promising djs.
Gabriel amaru (Minimal Force/Codekontrol)
There aren’t many electronic musicians around like this guy, so knowledgeable and yet so unprejudiced and passionate about music. Constantly nurturing and feeding a lifelong love of sound, Gabriel amaru lives for music. His interpretation of electronic music effortlessly fuses organic melodies, sometimes surreal snippets of sound with a feel good, pumping 4/4 beat. And for someone made from 100% West Coast G-Funk material in his wild teenage years, Gabriel amaru is nowadays a lot broader in his musical tastes. He sounds fresh and exciting, just as a human would...
"It’s all about the music and it’s always been that way...” he says as laidback and as playful as he’s always been. Starting from hard house and then sinking into techno, and later into house, Gabriel Amaru’s sound today is a funky breed of techno and house music, always with a strong bass line.
Alex Baciu (Soundcrossing/Derivat)
A likely young dj for the sounds of minimal-tech-house, newcomer ALEX from Bacau, Romania has quickly made a name for himself with his music. Take a listen to him, and you'll find that his original hometown has obviously had a great effect on his sound. Taking the hypnotic qualities of techno and adding the swing of classic house. Alex fell in love with electronic music in the lately '90s whilst clubbing at Zebra (Bacau) and Session (Bucharest) party’s, and it was his experiences there that convinced him to start his own career as dj. “I fell in love with house music , hearing Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia and Raresh” says Alex. Stepping behind the decks and into the studios was a natural progression for one so dedicated to the cause, and success will swiftly follow.
Theo Komp / Classic Wabasso (4Speakers Sake)
Theo Komp was born and raised in Greece and has established himself as a credible and well respected Dj playing in various clubs across the mainland.
Classic Wabaso was born In London and has also built up a impressive C.V. playing in some of London's major night clubs.
Both Theo and Classic have a passion for music production and undeniable skills in Djing. Despite the obvious differences in culture and language, it became apparent that Classic and Theo's style of production is different but very complimentary to each other and it soon became an obvious progression that Theo and Classic should start collaborating. After many studio hours and working together “4speakers sake” was born.
Classic and Theo's individual sounds compliment each other to produce what is now a very distinctive and easily recognisable “4speakers sake” sound.
The name “4speakers sake” came from the unique way that Theo and Classic play together using at least 4 channels to mix, with a combination of analogue and digital hardware. This allows them to experiment with different sounds and each of their performances brings something new.
Manuel Morales (Footloose/Modulate FM)
Born in Cádiz, Spain in 1983. Manuel started listening to electronic music at the early age of 9. He has since been involved in a variety of electronic styles. Manuel co-created FOOTLOOSE Music & Entertainment in 2011, sharing the roles of promoter, record label and management with Enrique Hernandez, another established DJ from the south of Spain who is starting to set up large-scale events all over London and the rest of UK, Spain and Germany. This is a new concept inspired by his previous projects: The Mess Weekend and You & Me. He has been invited to start contributing a 2 hour set to be aired bi-weekly on Modulate FM Radio in London (UK), in which he will be displaying his own rhythm and style.
So join us in this new adventure of sound and let’s explore the music and artists featuring influences from different parts of Europe and mixing the edgiest sounds of house and techno with :
