Born in 1983, Israel, and started producing music at the age of 10 (since 1993-today) making my first steps at the underground plant-traxxx website until I was ranked number 1 and discovered by German labels.
My first release was a remix for the G&M Project – Dreaming About Paprica 2003 – along with Dave Joy and 2 Players. Subsequent to my first release my first single vinyl was followed under the – Informers – alias signing the – The Dawn of Mankind- , which scored 5/5 at both DJ-Mag and IDJ-Mag and was supported by top DJs such as: Marcel Woods, Cosmic Gate, SHOKK, Mat Silver, Tony Burt, and many more.
After several more releases the alias Coldware was founded and got massive support to its first single – Fusion – from well known DJs (Marco V, Benjamin Bates, Above & Beyond, Johan Gielen and more). – Fusion – was followed by another great hit that was played in clubs all over the world getting support from Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Marcel Woods, Marco V., M.I.K.E and many more.
In 2007 I have remixed (then and true to 2010) Armin Van Buuren all-time club theme -Communication – that was released in Armind (label distributed by Sony BMGH) and ranked number one in sales on Beatport and charts all over the world.
Throughout this time I have been spinning in the major clubs in Israel and abroad (including Dome, Ha Oman 17 Jerusalem, Zoom, the old Pacha Israel, Octopus, TLV, and others). I spin various styles; from House music to Tech-Trance, Electro and Breakbeats and I am always inspired by the crowed; thus I am always playing the music the crowed de- sires to hear. Currently I am playing in Hong Kong, mainly at Drop.
By the end of 2007 I have moved to Hong Kong and continued producing mainly under the Emmanuel B. alias.
Currently (2010), together with Janva and Natalie Hardoon, I have formed a new group named Junk Deluxe. We are in the process of working of a new EP and new singles to be released in the coming months.
In addition, all my tracks were highly exposed throughout major radio stations around the world including: BBC Radio 1, ID&T – Slam FM, D-I (Digitally Imported), ASOT – A State of Trance, and many more.
Being an avid music devotee, Janva has been in the music and club industry since 1990 being the audio & visual manager and resident DJ at the notorious California Bar in Lan Kwai Fong, the center of nightlife in Hong Kong. Along the years, Janva has been performing with renowned artists; from Simply Red to performing together with Tiesto in Bangkok, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Boy George and Grace Jones live on stage for more than 10,000 people at the legendary Unity Party in Hong Kong, as well as appearing together with John Creamer at the Out of Space party at Club Yellow in Tokyo. Janva passion for moving the crowds was not confined to Hong Kong only. From Hong Kong to New York, London, Italy, Indonesia, China, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Macau, Guam and many more were destinations Janva has been blasting the crowds with house, break beats, electro, and tech-house vibes. – Its not about the music style, its all about the people. I make them move –
Nevertheless, Janva enthusiasm for music did not stop there. Throughout the years Janva has been sponsored by numerous famous brands that kept on bringing him back to dance floor.
Janva has also shown to be a perfectionist when DJing. Throughout the years he had been highly ranked in the Superman DJ Battle in New York (sponsored by The Source Magazine), and was also the DMC mixing champion worldwide representing Hong Kong in the world finals in London. Janva also produced and released a few EPs worldwide during these years.
In 2010 Janva has collaborated with Emmanuel B. (aka. Coldware/Emmanuel B./Informers) who has been signed, among other famous labels in Europe, on Armada records with Armin Van Buuren, and is known best for remixing Armin all-time classic anthem Communication. Emmanuel remix has been the best selling version of this almighty track ever since. Together, Janva & Emmanuel had formed the group Junk Deluxe and since then have started producing and performing together. Among their latest tracks, a track named Take Me To Space has been ranked number 1 in Club Space Miami original track contest 2010 and was the most favoured track.

Their first track “Southbound On The Northern Line” was signed to Bonzai Progressive and was released in September 2011 with a Citizen 42 remix. The track received support from the likes of Airwave, Thorin van Gelden, as well as entering the Audiojelly prog house chart at number 2 and staying in the top 10 for the next 6 weeks.

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.
