John Tejada

Normally associated with his peers in techno from Detroit, Europe and elsewhere, John Tejada has embraced electronic music as a personal frontier, expanding on his resume as a techno recording artist as producer, remixer, DJ, and label owner. Known for crafting a brand of subtle, musical techno, his recorded output ranges across tempo and genre lines, from chilled out affairs with spacious arrangements to pulsating, densely layered, deeply energetic tracks that work magnificently in the hands of DJs as well as on the home stereo.
John Tejada was born in Vienna, Austria on April 21, 1974. His parents, both professional classical musicians (his mother an opera singer and father a conductor) began his early piano training at the age of 4. In the summer of 1982, John would move with his mother to her place of birth, Los Angeles. It was that summer at the age of 8 another instrument would catch his eye, the drums. Teaching himself to play along to classic rock music, John quickly learned his way around the drum set (an instrument he still plays to this day in his I’m Not A Gun project). Everything changed however when he got his first taste of early 80’s hip hop music. The impact of those early productions and electronic experimentation was very strong. Soon after, at the age of 12 John was given his first set of turntables and a mixer. He wanted to figure out everything he was hearing DJs do at that time. His first gigs came at the age of 12 for his own school, DJing his school dances.
Soon after his fascination with DJing began his fascination with production began. Just as he was completely determined to learn the tricks of local DJs, he now wanted to know how the music was made. His introduction came around the age of 15, when he acquired his first looping delay. Soon after came his first workstation, an Ensoniq EPS sampler. This opened up a whole new world of possibilities. John spent every part of his day honing his craft.
In 1991, while still in high school, John was already recording his first productions. He was also involved in college radio, even though he was just a junior in high school. John had a spot on “The Fly ID Show” with DJ Rob One. John produced the show’s first record for Rob and also went on to do some hip hop production on Ruthless Records. It was during this time that he met his long time collaborator and best friend Arian Leviste. The two met at a hip hop recording session in ‘91. John, already tired of the hip hop scene and where it was going, spent hours talking to Arian about acid house, techno, ambient house and everything they seemed to have in common. The two agreed they would meet weekly to compose material. It took some time before they would release any music, but in 1994 they pressed up their own single and that started a chain reaction of releases. John and Arian during this time also were accepted into Cal Arts’ (California Institute for the Arts) electronic music program, but both decided not to attend to hone their craft on their own.
Soon after, John enjoyed a series of releases on European labels like A13, Multiplex, and Generations R&S. In the fall of 1996 he started his own label, Palette Recordings as an outlet to release his own productions without having anyone tell him how to do it. The demand for his music continued to grow and labels such as Ferox, Sino, Mosaic, Immigrant, Plug Research, Pokerflat and 7th City all released Tejada 12”s.
John began traveling internationally in ‘97 to showcase his DJ skills around the globe, traveling to more than 25 countries and playing various clubs and festivals around the world. Festivals included Movement (formerly The Detroit Electronic Music Festival), Sonar Festival (in Spain and Tokyo), Dance Valley (Netherlands), Sync Festival (Greece), Mutek Mexico, as well as internationally known spaces such as Fabric (London), Yellow (Tokyo), Rex Club (Paris), The Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles) and many more.
In 1999, John met classical jazz guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto, which was the beginning of another musical frontier. The two had a similar meeting as John and Arian had years before and began talking about making music. The project I’m Not A Gun was born and signed soon after to Berlin-based City Centre Offices. This project would bring back John’s own training as a drummer while also trying his hand at the guitar. The project became a mix of John’s own electronic productions along with Takeshi’s professional guitar playing and John’s drumming. The project has enjoyed great reviews and success the world over and the duo has performed live in LA, Japan and Germany.
In the summer of 2004, John would - in one week - create the two songs that would catapult his techno career. The classic “Sweat On The Walls,” and “Mono On Mono” were released almost at the same time on two different labels. “Sweat” was released on Pokerflat and “Mono On Mono” on Palette. Together the two records sold over 23,000 copies on vinyl. This lead to the equally successful follow up singles “Paranoia,” “Mind Bend” (with more recent collaborator and Palette-signing, Justin Maxwell) “Voyager,” and “The End Of It All.”
With dozens of singles and remixes to his credit, he has also produced full-length albums for Playhouse, Palette, Plug Research, deFocus, Moods and Grooves, Immigrant and A13. For a complete discography please visit http://www.discogs.com/artist/John+Tejada.\

Seb Zito

SEB ZITO 

Since discovering electronic music in 1994 Seb has moved with the times during a journey that has required constant evolution. Like a lot of London’s youth, his first encounters with the burgeoning underground community came via pirate radio stations and garage raves. These years of nights spent in clubs have been the integral factor in the natural affinity that he shares with the dancefloor. The ability to read a crowd, invite them into his psyche, and keep them enveloped in the journey is all based on his own experiences. 

And it is this that allowed him to establish himself as one of the core residents for London and Ibiza’s successful FUSE event series. His place as one of the key proponents of FUSE’s distinctive warm dubby sound is also reflected in his productions. Regularly featuring on both FUSE and inFUSE, the past years have seen a string of releases and remixes that built on a solid foundation of previous output. 

In addition to his skills, Seb’s involvement with the brand extends to head of A&R duties for the sub label as well as leading on a series of Infuse parties . Seb‘s Own productions are a mainstay in the boxes of many renowned international DJ's, with recent releases including Woonie Trax on Rawax, Bedlam Holla“for Kerri Chandlers Kaoz Theory and releases for Fuse, Infuse & Hund. Seb’s latest project, his new Seven Dials label, has received huge support and both EP's debuting at no1 on Juno.

HEADLINER INFO

SOUND CLOUD || FACEBOOK PAGE || INSTAGRAM

There are DJs, and then there are DJ’s DJ's.

Julien Veniel, artist name D’Julz, is undoubtedly one of the latter - a true craftsman

behind the decks whose true strongest skill is his ability to go beyond mere genres

and trends, deciding instead to actively shape the ever-changing soundscape of

electronic music through his own productions, DJ performances and parties.

Through a career spanning two and half decades, D’Julz has practically done it all.

He began spinning in Paris, often playing his home city’s much-talked about early

90’s raves and legendary clubs, all before moving to New–York in 1993 to further

hone his skills and cement his reputation as a true taste-maker in his field. The rest,

as they say, is history.

Despite finding himself in high demand in every corner of the globe, from the

States to Japan and countless countries in between, D’Julz has always remained

true to his roots in Paris, where he has been running the now legendary “Bass

Culture” night at Rex club since 1997.

In tandem with the birth of his party D’Julz has dedicated a large amount of time

and energy into the production side of his musical output. Solo-wise his music has

been signed to some of the world’s finest underground labels – Circus Company,

Robsoul, Ovum, Rekids, 20:20 Vision and more. Since D’Julz started producing he

has been responsible for a long list of tracks and remixes that have become

essential weapons in the record boxes of the world’s DJ elite.

As a DJ he exudes class and panache. A gifted curator of music whose pedigree

has earned him a loyal international following and a constant tour schedule which

sees him travel the worlds major cities every week playing the best venues they

have on offer. Not to mention the infamous Circoloco (DC10) where he has held a

long-standing residency, taking charge of the main room and the world-renowned

red terrace room several times each summer season. Each set demonstrating

D’Julz’s uncanny ability to weave his penchant for dub elements into the house

and techno sphere and rocking DC10 with potent groove and sultry rhythms.

D’Julz remains as enthusiastic as he was when he first started DJing, as his Bass

Culture label goes from strength to strength, clocking over 50 releases and he

continues to traverse the globe rocking dance floors every weekend.

A true legend and one who will continue to be at the top of his game…

Tim Engelhardt

Hello, World!

One of Cologne’s youngest and brightest electronic music stars on the rise, Tim Engelhardt didn't gatecrash the scene out of leftfield, but started his path to connoisseurship fairly early on: trying to rewrite the piano pieces he had to practice at the tender age of eight, he showed an independent creative mind from the get-go - a character trait that would prove exremely helpful for a later career as electronic music producer. But it was only when Tim later discovered the releases of Cologne techno luminary Robert Babicz that synthesizers and bass drums moved into focus - a brilliant producer, live performer and mastering engineer with a keen sense for sonic detail, Babicz became the perfect role model for young Tim, inspiring our hero to seek out his own place in electronic music while honing a concise understanding for all facets of production.

Part of a diverse new breed of young producers that get their cues from all sorts of genres and listening situations, Tim still stands apart, having released his very first record when he was just 14 years old. Combining profound musical knowledge with intuitive playfulness, his solid pianist background becomes rather obvious in the great care he takes over harmonies and an expanded melodic structure. Pair that with the organic fluidity and atmospheric dexterity of his music and you've got yourself a winning recipe. Consequently, Tim grew his portfolio with plenty outings on labels such as Traum Schallplatten, WIR, Babiczstyle, Amuse Gueule, Ostwind Records, Popart Music, Playmusic Productions, Parquet Recordings, Manual Music and Steve Bug's iconic Poker Flat Recordings– an impressive amount of label royalty that he's amassed in only four short years. Stay tuned for more Tim Engelhardt on key imprints such as Dixon's Innervisions or Cityfox - exciting things are coming your way.

Underscored by a torrent of remix and release offers, Tim's busy schedule is testament to his growing popularity among electronic music fans - preparations for tours to the US, Asia and India are underway, and also a first trip to Australia has already been checked off that bucket list. Meanwhile, inspiration for Tim's personal brand of melodic house and techno can come from many sources: childhood memories of Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" playing in his dad's car, a walk in nature - or simply mining his modular synth for happy accidents. Gear, however, is only a means to an end for Tim: rather than drooling over hardware, he celebrates art with a distinct personality - art that carries a piece of its creator inside. To find the most powerful expression for the sounds in his head, that's his mission... which is why Tim's music sounds nothing like your run-of-he-mill, straight-to-DJ floor chow, but subtly turns heads with a cohesive, fully-formed musical vision that shines in the club and at home.
