DJUMA SOUNDSYSTEM [GET PHYSICAL / EMI- NORWAY]:
..used to be two and now it's one. Norwegian DJ & producer Mikkas is flying the Djuma Soundsystem flag solo these days. The spirit of production and DJ style remains the same. That trademark of warm beats and melodies is alive and well both in the studio and on the road. The sound is between tech house, house, disco, and techno, with a lot of personality and humanity involved. This is music, and not just grooves! It's catchy, but still underground and it can entertain a festival going mad, as well as an intimate club.
Djuma Soundsystem had a major radio and club hit with "Les Djinns" (the single biggest selling track on beatport.com) and has proved to be much more than a one off, with releases like "This sound", "Atilla", "Small fries", "Zillion lights", "Bipolar", "Blizzard" and "Stoli", on well known indie labels, like Get Physical, Rebirth, Soundz, IO and Tool Room. They have been remixed by Uner, Tiger Stripes, Trentemøller, Martinez & Moby, to name but a few and Djuma Soundsystems music has been charted and supported by all the major tech house DJ's.
As Djuma Soundsystem, Mikkas has toured the world many times and played some of the best venues and crowds out there, clubs like The End (London), Space (Ibiza), Zouk SG (Singapore), Blue Frog (Mumbai), Kazantip (Ukraine), Villa (Oslo), Hardpop (Juarez), Nevermind (Sydney), Cielo (NYC), Stadium (Jakarta), Space (Miami), Watergate (Berlin), Kristal (Bucharest), or festivals like Fusion (Germany), Roskilde (Denmark), Reworks (Greece), Universo Paralello (Brazil), Hove (Norway), Free Fat Festival (Ukraina), Exit (Serbia), and the biggest gig of all - playing the last hour counting down to midnight at Baha beach in Rio on new years eve 2009, - in front of close to a million people!
... there's plenty gold left in the Djuma vault, and new tracks on the way on This is, Neurotrax, Soundz and Get Physical. Djuma Soundsystem are also making new collaborations with Xpress2, Kolombo and Emok...plus a dj mix compilation is just around the corner as well.

PETER MUNCH [Futurebound - NYC]
Peter Munch, the stylin’ and profilin’ dude with the cowboy hat and specs, is a ubiquitous presence in NYC nightlife. In the few short years since he moved to New York from his native Copenhagen, the DJ-producer has been busy perfecting what he calls “soultech,” a sound that has scored him opening slots for big names like Timo Maas, Trentemoller and gigs at clubs like Cielo, Sullivan Room and Santos Party House. Oh, and he’s one a regular attraction in the annual Halloween Parade. Busy, busy! Yet he still takes his time to evaluate and research thousands of new tracks every week, to keep his weekly 4 and a half hour mix marathon show "Futurebound NYC" fresh and imaginative.
