■ Guy J
Israeli producer Guy J has established himself as one of the most sophisticated and emotive producers in electronic music of the last decade, with a body of work and a sphere of influence that belies relatively short time in the spotlight. Whether it be his sensual, hypnotic take on house music, his deeply textured techno or his wondrous ambient material, his work is always touched with a magic and emotion that few rival.
Growing up, he was immersed in Israel’s dance music culture, and a burgeoning scene that is known the world over for its epic parties. From its own Love Parade to major clubs and radio shows, the country has long been a bastion for underground electronic culture. “If you looked for it, it was right there” he recalls. But while the country was chiefly known as the world’s chief exporter of psy trance, Guy and his contemporaries have spearheaded an acclaimed new wave of Israeli house and techno music. “I’m very sensitive person, so I think what I make is what I feel at the moment I make it” he explains of the deeply emotional qualities of his music. “I started as big fan of trance and progressive, and got exposed later on to techno and house\deep house. I’m trying to put all this together in my music; a bit of everything.”
Guy started producing at the age of 14, amassing a wealth of equipment and experience and dedicating his life to learning the craft (“my friends called my room ‘the cave’”). His first release came at the age of 21, but it was his 2007’s gem Save Me that proved to be his real launchpad. John Digweed snapped up the glistening, dramatic slice of deeper house music up for his legendary Bedrock Records, setting in motion a chain of events that would change his life forever. “It was like a dream coming true. I never knew it would lead me to having two albums on a label that I really grew up with.”
Its sublime Depeche Mode-esque synth work pointed to a talent that surprised considering his short time releasing records, and his ascent from hereon was steady and rapid. His debut album Esperanza gained plaudits in 2008 with its classy, ethereal blend of progressive house, techno, electro and electronica, while the follow-up 1000 Words went deeper still over two discs of expansive soundscapes and intricate dancefloor explorations. “I always wanted to make an artist album and to give another aspect of my music” he says. “What is magic for me in house music is that you can hear "real" music and also dance to it. There are so many emotions involved in it, but it’s ultimately there to create a good vibe, and to make you dance. But to make an artist album is a way for me to deliver pure music.” It’s this balance of the organic and the electronic, the visceral and the mental, that make his music so captivating and wide in its appeal.
Never one to be pigeonholed, his portfolio is a diverse beast, with releases finding their way onto Tiga’s increasingly eclectic Turbo imprint amongst others. To feature on two labels that are essentially synonymous with two very different scenes is testament to his versatility, and above all, the quality and conviction of his productions. “I don't see myself as producer of one genre only; I believe in exploring and trying different stuff when you have all the tools you need to create” he clarifies. “To be signed to Turbo... it’s also amazing as it a big label that has its own crowd of people who listen to a certain type of music, and to be part of it is great.”
2012 sees Guy kick off an exciting new project with his close colleagues and friends at Bedrock: his very own imprint “Lost & Found”, a sub-label for John Digweed’s long running mothership where he’ll release music by himself and his favourite producers. Then there’s the small matter of a release on Cocoon, one of the most highly regarded labels in techno and beyond, and some exciting collaborations in the pipeline with some other inspiring artists. As always with this unique talent, it’s quality, not quantity. Each of his releases is met with a swell of anticipation, and for once in this often over-hyped world, it’s fully justified.
Creator of the events brand Playground in Athens, Viton has been contributing to the Greek scene from very long time, bringing the best nomadic artists from all over the world and creating spiritual concepts as Ritual Club.
Argentinian DJ & Composer now based in Barcelona since 2018. Amadori's style is loaded with marked bass lines, eclectic and organic sounds of Deep and Afro house.
Amadori was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He started listening to electronic sounds at an early age in bands like Chemicals Brothers, Moby, Morcheeba, Tricky, Massive attack, Portishead, Prodigy, Faithless, etc. This search and discovery of electronic music was accompanied by the desire to manipulate and mix music. That is why he started taking classes with Juan Pryor, renowned Underground DJ from 90s, who taught him the concepts of the mixing, and then he had his first contact with DJ system, mixers, wires and CDJ’s.
Between 2012 and 2019 he performed in some of the clubs with more electronic music tradition of Buenos Aires such as Rio Electronic Music, Bahrein and Shamrock Basement, previously developing a dynamic career at modern clubs from the argentinan capital city like Niceto Lado B, Golf Club Palermo, Jet, Ohito and Sky (in San Luis province). Also from 2018 he played at Barcelona in parties like Nomads, WeMust, Tvinyl, Cara B, and also in Dussledorf, Germany (Kaninchendisko, Strandpiraten).
He was pleased to share the DJ booth with DJs as Sebastien Leger, Armen Miran, Roy Rosenfeld, Bart Skils, Acid Pauli, Geju, Nick Muir, Olivier Weiter, Sailor&I, Karmon, Digitaria, Jimmy Van M, Robert Hardy, Madloch, Andrea Cassino, Sabb, Kevin Di Serna, Soundexile, Facundo Mohrr, Da Capo, and many more.
You can find his tracks in labels like Shanti Moscow Radio, RADIANT, Wayu Records, The Purr, among others. He already has the support on Live sets and podcast of djs like Lee Burridge, Hernan Cattaneo, izhevski & Gorje Hewek, Dale Middleton, MUUI, Kora (CA), Nick Varon, Death On Balcony, PHCK, Kevin Di Serna, Viton, Nicholas Van Orton among others.
