THIS is Techno 3
For the third installment of this series, we are delighted to announce that Maris Moon will be gracing the decks to show us how they TECHNO on the Islands
During a three year break from dj'ing full-time Maris spent most of his time in the studio knocking out remixes of artists like The xx, Junkie XL and Young American Primitive. He also wrote a full length cinematic downtempo album, licensed several tracks to independent films and produced a house track for the Obama campaign that features former Paul Oakenfold vocalist Moira and charted at #4 on CdBaby. In 2009 his remix of Luke Parkin's 'Livin In Sunshine' was included on Unlimited Sounds' successful compilation series Dirty Electro, Vol 5. He was recently signed to the Chicago based label Invisibles by Crystal Castle's remix impresario Alex Zelenka. Maris will join Alex as they embark on a US Tour this fall. Maris has played festivals like EMF and Together As One and held residencies at countless clubs, recently playing DJ Mag 2010 Top 100 club Asylum. Representing his two California hometowns of San Diego and San Francisco, he has received reviews and coverage in nearly every major dance publication including Muzik, DJ, XLR8R, Urb and Mixmag. He is most notably known for his work in the UK hard house and techno scene, where for several years he frequently performed. His early struggles to gain traction across the pond paid off in 1999 when a reviewer from Muzik magazine caught one of his sets in front of thousands at London's Camden Palace and called it “the best I've ever heard at Frantic.” It wasn't long before Maris had residencies and offers to play at some of the top clubs in the UK including Progress, Frantic, Fevah, Heaven, Trinity, Ministry of Sound, Hotdog and a US tour for Sundissential. Under the alias Gravity Boys, Maris released “Buzz” on the Tuff Twins label which garnered critical acclaim in Europe. The track was added to the Ministry of Sound compilation Hard Energy mixed by Fergie and Yomanda which reached Top 20 in the UK compilation charts.
