A former member of the free-party underground collective "Heretik System", Popof has now participated as a solo artist in countless events throughout France, other European countries, North America, Latin America, the Middle-East, Asia and Australia. POPOF is a versatile artist who explores various genres of music. Today, he stresses his preference towards minimal techno and electro. His cutting edge tracks are made within the best traditions of techno mixed with a sip of tech-house. Popof is featured on various labels such as Turbo, Cocoon, A.F.U, Cr2, Mistakes and others and is often playlisted by many renowned artists: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Sven Vath, John Digweed, Tiga, Sasha, Erol Alkan. Popof has now become a superstar at the level that each release gets at least into the Top 5 download lists, if not the first place.
In 2007 JULIAN JEWEIL released his first LP on Skryptom Records, of which consecutively originated the now famous EP Â« AIR CONDITIONNE Â» . Playlisted and remixed by the biggest artists: Umek, Sebastien LÃ©ger, Tiesto, Valentino Kanzyani, or Mark Broom, "AIR CONDITIONNE" proved to be a huge hit.
Ever since this success, Julian has remixed leading artists like John Dahlback, Oxia, Marcus Lange, Paul Nazca, Scan X and so on ...He then started travelling the world to promote his work, touring and bringing his Live show to festivals and clubs alike. At the same time, Julian released his second EP Â« POP CORN Â» remixed by Danton Eeprom. This confirmed the magnitude of Julian Jeweil's potential - a confirmation made reality with later releases on Craft Music and Figure, Len Faki's label. Julian has also recorded for Popof's Form label, Sebastien Leger's Mistakes Music, has been remixed by both these artists and has himself remixed Moby.
Julian is about to release The Hermanos EP on Richie Hawtin's Plus 8 label, as well as remixes for John Digweed and Nick Muir on Bedrock.
ROBERT BABICS musical output is inspiring and staggering. A true one-man operation, he writes, records and performs solo; commanding an ever-expanding touring schedule, tailoring the music he creates to the cities he visits. But that's only part of the puzzle, Babicz's art is comprised of more than just his music. He films everything. Using his music to open doors and build relationships with people in only the way music can, he then records his experiences and interaction on film, both still and moving, later editing the images together as a picture track to his audio. Robert creates short films that capture the emotions, colours and feel of his trips, his music and the people he finds who want to be part of that experience. In turn these then also have an effect on his music colouring his emotive, unique take on electronica with a very human feel.
Steve Parker, born and raised in the Portuguese city of Oporto, grew up experiencing the summer of Acid and the revolution of House and Techno. Since then, dance music has always been present in his life.
Having risen through the techno ranks, nowadays Steve Parker is probably the most successful Tech House / Techno producer in his own country, and has firmly established himself as one of the most respected new comers around the DJ world. This status was only achieved due to his ideals, right from the beginning of his first releases in 2007, when he settled a higher plan deciding to aim and work only for quality labels.
