FAB CODE – NEVER GIVE UP (MINT & MUSTARD RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id=’36593887′]

 

At an early age Fab was bewitched by music. At age 6 he was attracted by the sounds of soul, funk and disco playing from his parents jukebox. Rocked to the sounds of Tamla Motown, James Brown, Barry White, KC & The Sunshine Band and later Kraftwerk. All this built up in him to a music culture dominated by rhythm and groove.

In the early 80s he began his DJ career (as DJ Fab) and became resident in a trendy club in Brussels called -Disco Steve-. Residencies and bookings would follow one another until 1988, playing in many local clubs, always quality venues, such as Le Veaudeville, Le Garage, Le Variete, La Pergola, Le Disque Rouge (Fuse), Las Vegas, and many others. The musical styles he spins with finesse and technique are funk, disco and new wave, the hype music for this era.

After hanging up his DJ gloves to explore new musical fields, music production, we see him reappear in 1989 with the release of his debut single -Warbeat- under the pseudonym Bassline Boys. The success was immediate following the mini scandal triggered by this title when it was broadcasted in Chistophe Dechavanne’s -ciel mon mardi- (TF1 – French TV), and the musical response entitled -On se calme (Mr. Dechavanne)- turned into a massive hit in France, selling over 400,000 copies and awarded with a gold record. New Beat, Acid House, Techno and Hardcore releases will succeed during the following years under various monickers, such as Fax Yourself, BSR, Defcon, DSK, Hydrowave, Speed Limit, etc.

In 1994 he decided to return to the turntables, and when he met Claude El Divino (City Parade) he joined the -Underground Energy- team, which allowed him play in one of the most prestigious clubs of Belgium, the Extreme. After a series of bookings with Energy Underground he became a resident at Extreme. Other residencies and bookings followed, including La Raza, Planet Hardcore, Cocoon, Illusion, Zenith, Pavarotti and so on.

After a break from both the deejaying and studio work during the early 2000s, he comes back in 2006 with a new challenge, creating and running his own DJ Bar, which will be called -bar©ode-. The project took its flight, the parties became famous throughout Belgium and abroad, and renowned DJs lined up behind bar©odes decks. Pole Folder (Bedrock Records), Filterheadz (I Love Techno), CP (Pulse Factory) Ecco (KMB records), Rudy (Fuse), Xian (Cafe dAnvers), Milo (You), Dave Kane, Trap House, to name a few.

Inspired by the name of his latest project -bar©ode- DJ Fab became Fab Code, and after the bar closed late 2007, he resumed the hunt for bookings. He joined the team of DJ Ecco called -United Elektro- and also played at -Dance Machine- and -Acid Or Not- parties until the end of 2009, then Fab decided to move and settle in the United Kingdom.

Freshly landed in Manchester, his new home, he went back to work and returned to the recording studio to relaunch his career as a producer and composer. He released his first tracks in 2010 on Belgian label Kiss My Beat Records (KMB), on the label Bonzai Progressive and on the label Mint & Mustard.

Belfast DJs John Manning & Ciaran Duffy joined forces in late 2008 having been DJs in their own right for over ten years, playing in clubs and radio stations all over Northern Ireland and beyond.

They had never met until 2007 when they met by chance in Brisbane, Australia. After talking they realized they shared a passion for House Music and realizing they only lived a few miles apart back home in Ireland they made an agreement, that they would keep in contact and start a project when back on home turf, Brisboys was born.

In the short time they have been working together they have already had several number 1 hits on www.djdownload.com and support for their tracks comes from the likes of Dave Piccioni, Miss Nine, Jesse Voorn, Eric Entrena, Threesixty and Felix Baumgartner to name a few.

ERIK IKER – MIDNIGHT IN BEOGRADE (MINT & MUSTARD RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id=’29277614′]

 

Erik Iker, born in November 1988 in Belgrade, Serbia. The first time he came into contact with music he was as only a boy, when his dad played his record collection. Later in the 90s he gets in touch with electronic music, listening to Faithless, Scooter, Prodigy and others. His music breakthrough happens in 2002 when he goes underground, meeting psytrance and trance for the first time.

While more and more listening to these genres, he gets an idea to start mixing and making himself and he lays his hands on his very own first Fruity Loops Studio and starts creating music. At first he was just having fun. Fun that made him gain much experience in producing. In 2006. he decides to slow his beat and under the influence of Deep Dish, Sasha and others he starts producing progressive house. By 2009 he learned quite a bit working in FLS.

While he was watching tutorials, reading artist blogs and following their studio work online, his production got much better and could be considered quite serious. In 2010 he starts producing with a wish to do something more. His genre can be described as Progressive House with strong melodies, always a good atmosphere at hand, mixed with some trance elements. Under the influence of his fellow DJs in Serbia he also starts producing Tech House. Loving the slower tempo, nice grooves, noise, melodies and strong energetic tracks, a lot can be expected in the future from Erik. The wish to do something more will always continue to prevail.
