[soundcloud id='46551072']

 

After finishing high school, Murat Uncuoglu started working in a record store, importing foreign LPs and the first CDs to Istanbul. Collecting a vast knowledge of contemporary dance music, he was soon approached with offers to DJ at private parties. In 1987, he began accepting the offers and started his DJing career. He soon got his first residency at Hadigari in the city of Bodrum.

Later on, Murat’s desire to become a professional DJ and producer took him to what was then the heart of electronic music, London. He studied sound engineering and production at Media Productions and was a regular at London’s clubs. While in London, Murat worked as a sound engineer for several international producers, including Marshall Jefferson. He also continued his DJ career and performed at exclusive parties and local clubs.

Returning to Istanbul in 1994, Murat embarked on multiple projects. He was recruited as a resident DJ at Club 2019 in Istanbul, and co-founded Radio 2019, the first electronic music radio station in Turkey. At this time, Murat Uncuoglu also met up with Aytekin Kurt and formed MiracleWorkz Productions. Together they have created a string of productions under numerous aliases such as MiracleWorkz and Organica. In 2003 Murat made his debut as a solo artist, and several releases have followed.

WONJI – STICKS & FIRE EP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='44944233']

 

Juan Gonzalez aka Wonji is born in Brooklyn, New York 1972 is one of four sons in a family of musicians who started his music career playing the trumpet in jr. high band. With these early skills in music he soon started playing other instruments including, guitars, drums, most brass instruments and soon after at the age of 14 discovered turntables. Hip Hop was one of his biggest infuences at that time and encouraged him to think of creative ways to hear and play sounds from the tables. Soon after he started playing private parties, events and such.But there seemed to be something missing…..

At the age of 17 he decided to move to South Florida, Miami and this is where he was introduced to The House Sound. With a past in latin music, disco and R&B, Wonji decided to twist and meld these sounds together in his live sets which led him to move to his next step: Producing.

By 1999 House music had evolved so much with many new and updated sounds Wonji could not resist getting involved in production.
Musical instruments changed so the music changed, the scenes changed so I had to try and keep up with all the new styles, says Wonji.
Fascinated by the past music and sounds of The Hunger, Front 242, and later DJs like John Digweed, Timo Mass and so on, it was only a matter of time till he started producing his own work.

With an ever evolving sound, Wonji will for sure be around in the music scene for a while. Never passing up new musical possibilities and changing the way music is to be played.
Wonji says about himself: Making people move and groove, thats all I want to do.
