Our next producer has been around for a long time and leaving a trail of great productions on great imprints. With his re-entries on Carl Cox`s INTEC and Wally Lopez’s La FACTORIA this producer promises a full blast of fresh tracks dropping on all the portals. His humongous resume says it all: Monique Musique, Baroque Records, Incorrect Music, Strictly Rhythm, and Stereo Productions.
His debut on Sounds R Us comes with remixes from R.O.N.N. aka Ron Caroll, Analog Effect and Oz Romita. Boyz & Chickz, please welcome….Oliver Moldan!
DJ/Producer Oz Romita was born in Izmir/ Turkey, but was raised in Amsterdam. He’s been a fixture of the international club scene since 1997 and has appeared at numerous top venues and events world wide including Club Panama, Cafe d’Anvers and La Rocca.
Oz’s distinctive tech-house style is energetic, refreshing and perfect for those modern dancefloors. His product ions have been picked up by elit e imprint s like; Great Stuff Recordings, Movement Recordings, SK Supreme Records, Ninefont Music, Erase Records, Deux Mind Records and Repressure Recordings.
In the year 2012 he started his own label called, Sounds R Us Recordings, which has very talented producers lined up in its roster. Mariano Santos, Tom Hades, Steve Mulder, Jamez, Nick Olivetti, Pig & Dan and DJ Tash are some of the names that will create the sound of Sounds R Us Recordings.
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.
