MIIKA KUISMA – TRYING MY NEW WINGS – REMIXES (BONZAI ELEMENTAL)

 

[soundcloud id='51753021']

 

Second best selling Chillout release in 2008 on Beatport, with over 3000 downloads, get a remix treatment release with works from Jane Maximova, Michele Cecchi, Placid Larry , Suburban Dream, Twins In Mind, and Raymond Wave.

Miika Kuisma is a finnish musician, artist, philosopher, futurist and inventor who’s passion is to understand fundamental nature of the reality by exploring spirituality, science, history and technology.

In early 90′s he got big revelation in a small house club and walked out as a new person. From that moment he knew dance music was ‘for him’. His first electronic records which influenced him the most include works by Jarre, Cosmic Baby, Moby, Prodigy, Faithless and early Eye-Q releases. After falling in love with so many electronic styles by now, also his own productions have become somewhat unpredictable.

His tracks are usually somewhere between progressive and melodic, while not being not ‘too deep’ or ‘too cheesy’. On the DJ’ing side Miika was known for his perfectionistic approach to build his sets in certain way. Especially his “Intelligent Design” radio mixes were trips across different moods and genres.
Miika has spent most of his life playing around with technical gear but also loved to draw and play instruments from very early age. After getting his degree in electricity he turned around and took career paths in graphic design, programming, animation and user-interface design.

Besides music production and performances he played key role in the concept and interface-design with EKS in the development of the MIDI controller EKS Otus. He played his last DJ gig in April of 2009, sold his record label “Subtraxx Recordings” for Bonzai Music and relocated into South-East Asia. Currently he is involved in designing new types of creative applications, media formats and business models.

EYEPATCHED – VOLUME 2 (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

As from today you can order at decks.de the second Eyepatch Recordings vinyl.

The sampler comes with four original tracks and remixes from Accatone, Dimitri Liss, Jimmy Galle and Victor Maximiliano.

 

 

ACCATONE:

Accatone is the alias of José Reis. Born in 7 July 1980, he went through his teens listening to Detroit techno and Chicago house music, deep and dub techno and later on to all kind of world, funk and folk, dub and reggae, soul and all kinds of music really.
At the age of 15 he had dj’s and performers as friends and his contact with the after-hours scene in Lisbon started at the early age of 16, making his personal heroes DJ’s like Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Daftpunk, Laurent Garnier, Juan Atkins, Plastikman, Green Velvet, The Orb, Larry Levan, Luke Slater, Underworld, Derrick Carter, and many more…

He started his musician career in 1998 as a percussionist playing all over Portugal as a freelancer and as a member of many bands like the folk band Dazkarieh in 2002, and the chillout project Tachyons from 2003 to 2005. Then he his way into production of electronic music between chillout and deep house and playing as a DJ at most of the trance and techno open air party’s and clubs all over Portugal having his debut abroad in 2009 in Belgrade Serbia at the Namaste Club.

It is only in 2008 after he graduates from the National Conservatory of Cinema, in the Sound Department, that he begins to embrace the production of house and techno at a full range. He pursuits for different and more accurate deep and groovy house tunes working as a DJ, Producer/Remixer and sound recordist and closely involved with Piston Recordings ran by his long time friend Rogério Martins.

DIMITRY LISS:

From an early age Dimitry had an aptitude for music. Being a piano student he attended various local competitions in his native town, making sure he practiced long hours before each one at home. When he realized being a professional piano player wasn’t his calling, he walked away with considerable knowledge and experience in music and its theory. He tried a lot of musical instruments and was about to settle for rhythm guitar when his thirst for electronic dance music started to develop.

Somewhere deep in the heart of Russia, a lot of influence arose from the cold and moody surroundings he was subjected to in the urban city. He dived deeper into the unknown world of synthesis and sampling. This is where it all started, sleepless nights and lone days with books and computer screens. Producing, practicing and perfecting his craft.

Year 2002 brought dramatic changes to his rather rehearsed and already aggravating routine, when he moved to Dubai. Experience in a new city added to his aural perception. He grew as a music producer gaining knowledge and skill in this fresh and exciting multi-cultural environment where music, culture and technology coincide hand in hand. While on the path to musical growth, Dimitry stumbled upon a few others that shared his vision for a good groove. Two of these key influences are Costas Papa and Abood Nasrawi. Together they try to explore and push creative boundaries.

Dimitry Liss supports electronic music to this day, he is heavily involved with Dimitry Liss and Costas Papa duo project and his own work as a producer and a DJ, crafting brand new tech, deep and minimal house tracks for your enjoyment.

JIMMY GALLE:

Jimmy is born on August 17th in Luik aka Liege in Belgium. As his parents were boatmen he had to attend boarding school from the age of 6 onwards. To overcome the loneliness of boarding school his parents bought him a walkman. That event literally plugged him in in music!

He listened a lot to music via tapes and the radio and developed a health preference house music.
After a long period of nagging and begging his parents he finally got the best birthday present ever on his 15th birthday: a music mixer and double deck cd player. Every free second of his time went into his devotion to music.

2 years later Jimmy got the chance to prove himself at a cool club in Antwerp: Het Eilandje.Success was immediate: he got his first residency!

Not long before he got interested in making his own music. With his savings Jimmy bought his first PC with a sound card and a Korg keyboard. After a few years he discovered his own sound and at the beginning of 2004 he released his first record: Jim-Y – Digital Trumpets. In the meantime he was working on a project with his best friend Ruly. Jimmy had finished a new demo for which he had the perfect voice in mind and boldly he sent it over under the project name R & Y to his favorite vocalist and singer. And guess what! Only 2 weeks later he got contacted by Jan Johnston. Jan had already written the lyrics and called for a date to do the recordings for this song, that is how R&Y Meets Jan Johnston – Its Cold Outside was born. This single was released in 2007 with remixes from Filterheadz and Sied van Riel.

In 2008 Morning On The Terrace got released on the label Bonzai Fiesta. At the end of 2008, Ruly decided to stop with the project, and that was when Jim-Y changed into Jimmy Galle. Jimmys sound was different as a solo dj/producer. After this period different productions and remixes appeared on different labels.

Jimmy has plaid and is still playing in many known Clubs and on many events such as: Noxx, La Rocca, Cafe D’ Anvers, Industria, Chakra Party, The Factory, Lazurra, Petrol, De Rodenburg (NL), TranccSession, Playboy Deluxe, De Cinema, Space, Wicked, BBC, De Kaai, Red & Blue, Turbulance…

VICTOR MAXIMILIANO:

His musical interest began in the early days of the legendary Roxy in Amsterdam. 
Soon he bought his first analog gear and did a lot of experimenting with electronic sounds 
on Korg MS10 (which he still owns) and the Roland TR 808. 
In the 90s he worked as a radio DJ for some popular local FM radio stations. 
Victor worked together with DJ Promo as the Vinyl Maniacs and they had a short successful period in the Amsterdam underground scene in the mid 90s.

LUCIO GRANDI – REELOOPER EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

 

[soundcloud id='51025839']

 

Lucio Grandi was born in Cali, Colombia on August 5, 1984, with Colombian, French and Italian roots.

His first contact with electronic music happens a the sweet age of 6 when Dance and House music hit the local radios. Intense happiness filled him listening to these tunes. Not long before he starts experimenting with recording tunes and making his own mixtapes.

Ten years later after learning how to mix properly on turn-tables he starts his carrier as a professional DJ playing Techno and listening to DJs like Marco Carola, Ben Sims, Cristian Varela, Jeff Mills, Samuel L Session. He filled his DJ-bag with the dark sounds of strong Techno.

But only 2 years later he finds himself tired of that sound and starts the search of his very own musical identity. DJs like Danny Tenaglia, Vibe, Victor Calderone, Carlos Manaca, Richie Santana convince him that Tribal is his call.

Still not satisfied he ends up to adapt House and Alternative Music into his sets and this turns out to be his true self. Influenced by names like Silicone Soul, Peace Division, Little Louie Vega, Armand Van Helden, Harry Romero, Alton Miller , Afrika Bambaataa gave him the needed diversification and shades in tones that this genre contains.

Actually, it is that variation, that diversification that House Music offers that marks his identity as a DJ because he can choose between one side or the other, achieving a more intense atmosphere in his sets.

He has played along with DJs like Franco de Mulero, Jose Viscaya, Malambo, Lexx, Chile, Chloe Harris of London and with David Guetta in 2009 after winning the first DJ contest of his hometown.

He has played in Mission Club, Cooseres, La Cantera, Joan of Arc, Central Valley Pacific events, private parties, etc.

Today he finds himself as a DJ and producer to be part of the infamous Bonzai label group. Convinced of their professionalism and way of working he finds his tracks released on Bonzai Basiks.
This is for Lucio the fulfillment of a dream as he always had wanted to be part of this label.

AIEMO – SWEET PEACHES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='49454762']

 

The 28-year-old Danish/Italian artist is born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired by the pulsating, urban and unique atmosphere of Copenhagen, David Nicosia Longhi has produced and published under various pseudonyms such as Mazenga and Aiemo. Ranging from deep, minimal psytrance to chillout and melodic lounge music.
David himself describes the importance of inspiration gathered from the fast paced citylife: I love living in the city, there are endless inspirational options, ranging all the way from high-end fashion, cocktailbars, nightlife in general and even the modern oasis areas in Copenhagen, filled with peace and calm energy.I also like the anonymous feeling found in a big city. You could be surrounded by 100s of people and still feel like no one is seeing you. I generally get inspired from beautiful people around me and the desire to make and do something that touches the heart and thought of a human in combination with the electronically produced music. I want to keep living my daydream and my music reflects this.

Practical Inspiration has been gathered from both the trance/balearic scene throughout the 90s all the way to the downtempo and chilled lounge scene in modern time.

His first releases goes back to 2003 with Italian based label Inner-sound Records on the Perfect Evolution compilation and shortly thereafter another release follow with a Danish label. After several years of devoting his artistic abilities in literature he again turned his attention towards electronic music and the perpetual style of modern lounge.
The style from David Nicosia Longhi is now mainly focused on top quality lounge music, with his own deep devotion into a timeless and atmospheric production.

PATRIK PRELOVSKY – SECOND MATE (MINT & MUSTARD RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='49453583']

 

Born in Czech Republic in 1983.
I started to play vinyls in 2001 age 17.

At that time I was focusing mainly on techno following guys like Carola, Liebing, Kanzyani, Umek.
Every beginning is hard but with patience and a lot of hard work I am now in the position of playing around the brightest clubs and venues in the Czech Republic

I was actively involved in a tour sponsored by Sony Ericsson that promoting a DJ school this way I was able to play on the most famous festivals happening in the Czech Republic (Hard House, Summer Of Love, Rock For People, Hip Hop Camp)

Ever since software solutions have made their entrance into every DJs Studio I also thought of making my own music seen the situation of the market where the demand for classic DJs is decreasing.

After some trial and error I finally landed the right track which got picked up by Eyepatch Recordings in 2011.
