“I’ve never met someone so young with such raw talent. The future's so bright for her.” These words from Ivan Berko definitely match the 25-years old Italian girl from Brescia who is, Valentina Budino.
「我從來未遇上過如此年輕又如此才華滿溢的人，她的前途無可限量。」對於來自意大利布雷西亞二十五歲的Valentina Budino，Ivan Berko說道。
Valentina represents the new wave of italian artist deeply rooted in the Afro-Cosmic tradition pioneered by fellow Brescian Beppe Loda. Now based in Berlin, she became resident of the best monthly party Cocktail d’Amore with memorable apparitions. Valentina has also been booked recently by the avant-garde European underground clubs and has now become a rising talent of the electronic music scene.
Valentina代表著意大利的一鼓新浪潮，受過同樣來自布雷西亞的Afro-Cosmic先峰Beppe Loda的洗禮。現時長居柏林的她成為Cocktail d’Amore每月最成功派對DJ之一。而最近她亦開始於歐洲各個avant-garde派對受邀表演，成為現時歐洲電子音樂的新星。
As a DJ, label owner and party organiser Budino has sought to represent her long standing connections with the Afro-Cosmic tradition.
Budino is one of the minds behind the long-running Oscillator party series and their own record label that has released a few EPs of edits of obscure Italian disco by the Italian pioneer Beppe Loda further galvanising the connection with her Brescian roots. In her new town of Berlin, Budino’s wild and immersive sets have found a perfect home at clubbing institutions such as Cocktail d’Amore and Wilden Renate where she can be found jamming the sonics for hours on end.
Oscillator 派動的發起人和自家廠牌推出Beppe Loda的混音作品，Valentina與布雷西亞有著不可分離的關係。而在柏林Cocktail d’Amore和Wilden Renate她找到一切適合她的DJ set之環境。
Teng has been playing music across a multitude of dance scenes originating in Australia across to Singapore and Hong Kong where he is based. As former resident DJ behind the eclectic Art Bar (The Butter Factory), Teng has pushed many genres, ranging from disco to house and techno.
Teng’s ascent into the pantheon of top tier DJs began in the underground rave scene of 1990’s Sydney. He has been drawing influences from far and wide ever since, delving into disco, funk, breaks, house and techno - digesting these diverse sounds and pushing them back to dance floors with his signature mixing style. Continually searching for the next sound to progress his style, Teng still scours genres from around the world, adding the best of the best to his leviathan repertoire.
Once Teng started delving into the art of mixing, his reputation shot through Sydney. Embraced by both club owners and punters alike for his uncanny ability to connect with crowds, Teng played parties in the city’s most popular clubs, eventually earning himself residencies at influential club nights Plastic and Sublime.
It’s not just Teng’s eclectic ear that has generated adulation either; his obsessively honed turntable skills saw him winning a litany of awards from the scratch competitions he took part in. A true craftsman, Teng was being handpicked to spin at Australia’s biggest dance festivals, including the iconic Transmission and Utopia parties.
Even after conquering the Sydney scene, Teng refuses to break from his relentless quest for perfection. He migrated to Singapore and continued on his musical quest that had kept Butter Factory’s dance floors both packed and held in the highest regard by the nation’s press.
