LOQUAI – WE LOVE THE NIGHT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='47311724']

 

Carpenter by day and producer by night. The name will LoQuai remain on the lips of underground DJs and producers around the world.

Konstantin Alt was born on September 7th, 1981 in Bel’bulak, Kazakhstan. Since childhood Konstantin has had a growing interest in percussions and the accordion. His first contact with electronic music occurred while watching MTV finding himself fascinated by the sounds and the possibilities they proposed. At the age of eight he immigrated to Germany with his family and has lived in a village there ever since.

His early musical career started in 1998 when he purchased his first electronic instruments parallel to starting his apprenticeship as a carpenter. This was the beginning of a new era in his life. From here Konstantin began working intensively in music production, weaving in all styles of electronic music including psychedelic, ambient, trance, break beats, and drum & bass. The combination of these styles has made him a producer of progressive house.

With the revolution of the Internet, Konstantin had the opportunity to start his professional career on the UPTRAX website, where his music began to continuously hit the Top 20 list. At this time he also began playing live gigs at Sunshine, Germany. Konstantin returned part time to school, but this time to the SAE School in Frankfurt to study audio production. He graduated in 6 months gaining certification as an EMP (Electronic Music Producer). From here his career skyrocketed with many offers coming in from labels such as Ultimate House Records where in 2005 he released his first official single under the name LoQuai. During these years he worked on many remixes for a variety of labels, which really helped propel his musical career. In 2006, Mystique Music Records, a new label in underground music, approached him and there he finally found a label where he could grow fundamentally as a producer. From 2009-2010 Konstantin was featured on pure.fm radio through his successful show Unison. In the last year he worked on many remixes and original tracks for many major labels including Mystique Music Records, Jetlag Digital, Baroque Rec., Indigo Rec. and many more.

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!

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.
