Acid Washed

Artist PageAcid Washed

Did you know? Voguing, which gained mainstream exposure through Malcolm McLaren or Madonna, owes a little of its fortune to France : since the late eighties, this underground movement born in the Harlem ballroom scene fascinated the very first missionaries of house music à la française, whether they’d be DJs, journalists or promoters. Around the world, most of the wonderful Queens of Vogue had a break through with their performances in music videos on MTV, but nowhere else other than in Paris did we take this New-York gay and multicultural counter-culture so seriously.

Agents of time

Artist PageAgents of time

It all started in a store room, a drink and a bit of time.Three minds give life to the Agents of time. A real fusion of ideas and concepts that make up a single reality.Together they develop a rare style characterized by particular and refined sounds,contaminated by their own electronic mood, a major common interest.A rather suggestive experience through which it`s easy to get carried away without noticing the uncontrollable time that flows and that doesn`t find obstacles in front of itself.

Alex Under

Artist PageAlex Under

The deepest meaning of ‘collage’, defined by Max Ernst, is the general application of Arthur Rimabaud’s ‘delirium’: “I accustomed myself to simple hallucination; I saw quite deliberately a mosque instead of a factory,a drummer’s school conducted by angels, carriages on the highways of the sky, a salon at the bottom of a lake: monsters, mysteries, a vaudeville poster raising horrors before my eyes”. We could describe collage as an alchemic compound of two or more heterogeneous elements, derivate by their unexpected approximation generated deliberately by the search of systematic confusion and distorted perception.

Currently working out of Berlin, Kevin McHugh has spent the last decade living in the German capital or New York and in a sense; these two metropoleis represent the contradiction at the heart of his Ambivalent persona. On the one hand the reckless freedom and hedonism of the Berlin subculture, on the other the more considered, conceptual approach of its New York counterpart.As a result his idiosyncratic sound lies somewhere between the two, a precarious balancing act that manages to infuse stripped down, finked up minimal techno with a distinct sense of purpose, often defined by a pearl of an idea around which his skeletal grooves revolve.

Many people seem to think there has been a House music resurgence. Whether House has been masquerading as Minimal, swaying Disco-House, or in the form of a soundtrack to drunken 19 year-olds´ night out as Fidget, it never really left. Some say this “new” sound has been coming in droves out of what many call The Rhein-Main, an area of Southwest Germany in and around Frankfurt am Main. Well, why would it come from this area in particular? Probably because it has always been there, while you were listening to clicks, pops, and sampled air-horns, House has been alive and kicking.

Forever with his thumb cocked looking for the next creative thrill ride as the sun goes down, Guillaume Coutu-Dumont’s music lends itself to the indigo hue of dusk, imbued with the sultry allure of jazz, the unquestioned groove of house, and the propulsion of techno. As a solo producer, Guillaume was already causing atmospheric disturbances ahead of his debut album “Face À L’Est”, which appeared on Musique Risquee in 2007. Before the inception of his one-man band, Guillaume was moving and shaking with other protagonists via the Egg project with Julien Roy, Chic Miniature with Ernesto Ferreyra and Luci with David Fafard.

Guy Gerber

Artist PageGuy Gerber

Guy Gerber has always been comfortable as an outlier. From being the rock kid at the rave, to the Israeli DJ on the European club circuit, to the electronic producer with a fetish for live instruments, he tends to skirt the edge of whatever scene he’s in. It’s a position that suits him well––so far it’s led to dozens of lush, melodic records, an ever-evolving live act and his own label, Supplement Facts. This nonconformist attitude, combined with the emotional content of his art (so rare in today’s electronic music), explains how Gerber keeps his audience locked in, be it on record or on stage.

It should come as no surprise when you listen to the body of work that Joel Boychuk has created under his Hobo guise, that each individual output sounds so different.

Hot Chip

Artist PageHot Chip

Warmer, deeper and more stripped back than their previous record, ‘Made In the Dark’, ‘One Life Stand’ is still conscientiously crafted and informed by the kind of intelligent evaluation that is now second nature. The seductive and surprisingly glossy finish they can deliver when the mood takes them and the song demands are replaced with an emotional honesty and an open-hearted optimism that is disarming and often unexpectedly affecting. With both feet in the Jack Track underground roots of classic house and techno, and a heart in candid song-writerly craft, this record, in its entirety, is convincingly inspired by Joe Smooth, Marshall Jefferson, Derrick May, Theo Parrish, Bill Withers and Bill Callahan all at once.

Oliver Huntemann

Artist PageOliver Huntemann

Myths abound in the north when it comes to techno ground zero, and they refuse to go away. Oliver Huntemann is one of a handful of children of the north who, for what seems like an eternity, add an element of credence to the mythology. He does not, of course, live in a snowy forest or at the edge of the polar oceans. The sun does, on occasion, shine down on Hamburg. Nevertheless, there is a tendency towards hypothermic reduction in the rigorous efficiency of the Huntemann oeuvre. Images of cold storage warehouses, desolate heavy plant sites and bluish flesh are not entirely misplaced.

Onur Ozer

Artist PageOnur Ozer

The currents of influence that have shaped Istanbul for thousands of years, continue to flow today in the only city in the world situated on two continents. At this crossroad the “Queen of Cities” has sat while Middle Eastern, Asian and European waves of influence surged and receded. In these tides Onur Özer was born and raised and in his music they all come radiating through. Onur’s developmental years were spent listening, not playing an instrument. The melodies and harmonies he composes today are a result of those he heard, interpreted, and “somehow” able to spontaneously play.

Patrick Chardronnet

Artist PagePatrick Chardronnet

Emotional Techno? Yeah, that’s what Patrick creates. Emotion, inspiration, passion are main ingredients to his music, and he has collected a great deal of those over the past years: travelling around the world, he has done quite a bit of experimenting. Playing with different approaches, new influence, etc… but at the end of the day he is still what he used to be: a nerd sitting in his studio, looking for the perfect sound. As for that perfect sound, Patrick Chardronnet has come a long way: no more naive producing on instinct, but a more conscious approach, somewhat matured, with everything he’s seen and -more importantly- heard in 20 years of studio experience (and a few more in life) somewhere in his mind.

Steve Bug

Artist PageSteve Bug

Germany‘s very own taste-maker, trend-setter, mover-shakerextraordinaire Steve Bug is a multi-faceted artist who refuses to back down from the limelight. A dedicated, energetic and constantly surprising talent, Steve is nothing less than an electronic music ambassador, a much-loved spokesman to the people, and for good reason.

`Growing Up‘ in Germany‘s techno and acid-house heyday, Steve Bug‘s love for a perfect groove is as apparent now as it was back then. From the very early days DJjing in Bremen and Hamburg it was clear there was a strong talent waiting to be nurtured. With a bit of encouragement from Superstition‘s Tobias Lampe, Steve‘s very first productions were released in 1993 and his musical story began. Besides this his DJ skills and keen, innovative, ear led him not down the typical path of the early nineties trance and harder dance scene, but towards a fresher, hybrid sound merging stripped deep house, tweaked out acid and more minimal forms of techno.

The result was the first ‚wave‘ for Steve, as his Raw Elements label, debut album ‚Volksworld‘, and the classic compilation ‚Da Minimal Funk‘ lifted his sound and his name through the ranks. Further compilations and singles followed, as did the growth of the Raw Elements label alongside artists like Vincenzo, Märtini Brös and more, continually surprising and re-inventing the template for the genre.

In 1999 Steve broke yet more boundaries with the launch of Poker Flat Recordings, and his classic ‚Loverboy‘. Introducing a darker, yet totally funky and grooving sound, this minimal club hit opened Steve‘s eyes to new territories and new possibilities. Needless to say the Poker Flat imprint still runs strong today, over a decade since its inception, and Steve now stands as a figure head for the hugely poular ‚minimal-tech-house‘ sound that the label pioneered. His first album for Poker Flat, entitled ‚The Other Day‘ stands as a testament to this futuristic, melting pot of sounds and ideas, where musical diversity and experimentation meet soothing night-time dubs and dancefloor workouts! 

As musical partners to the Poker Flat sound, his labels Dessous and later Audiomatique evolved - Dessous catering for more classic deep-house sounds fused with cutting edge production from top artists, while Audiomatique, standing for a very modern house and techno sound, allowed even crazier moments to be explored - and so all corners of his love for the 4/4 beat were expressed, presented in the upmost quality. Countless productions, remixes and one-off studio sessions with key producers ensued, all carrying the Bug‘s name further afield, and higher up the musical ladder. Notable offshoots from his main focus of work were the now classic ‚B-Series‘ and until-recently

secret ‚Traffic Signs‘ projects, which explored different musical paths to great effect, yet still carried with it the unmistakable quality he‘s become known for.

The essential ‚Bugnology‘ mix series (now in its third installment), along with high profile mix cds for Cocoon, Fabric, Fuse and more, continued to rouse support for Bug‘s much in-demand DJ style, and propelled him further across the globe, touring far and wide. All the while his by now trademark studio sound continued to earn him credit, with his next album ‚Sensual‘ and singles like ‚The Smackman EP‘, ‚Wet‘n‘Dry‘, ‚A World Without Cru Sauvage‘ and ‚Silicon Ballet‘ with Clé, all upping the ante. 

The past time has also been a typically busy one, compiling the compilations ‚Dead Man‘s Hand‘, and the 10 year anniversary compilation ‚All In!‘ for Poker Flat, as well as an exclusive digital album celebrating ‚Time Flies -The Best of Steve Bug 1998-2008‘. Excitingly, his latest artist album ‚Collaboratory‘ was dropped in June 09, featuring a beautiful mixture of original tracks, seeing Steve work with some of his favourite producers and closest friends, from Clé to Cassy, Donnacha Costello to Simon Flower and more! The album was followed by the single release of the

collaboration track ‘Swallowed Too Much Bass’ featuring vocals by Paris The Black Fu and three remix EPs.

Steve’s latest single happened to be the Poker Flat Recordings #111 release, named ‘Flight 111’, out in April 2010.

Watch out for news on this and Steve‘s other activities as we approach what‘s set to be another non-stop summer in Bug town!

A dedicated disciple of vinyl, Bug visits his favourite record shop in Berlin, Melting Point, every week without fail.

road, preserving the unique ‚mastered‘ qualities of the original pressings. Its details like this that contribute to his position at the top of his game!

Steve on DJing.

He lists such parties as ‚The Sunday School for Degenerates‘, famously held every year at the Miami Winter Music Conference, as one of the highlights of the year. His alltime favourite German festival, Fusion, which he performs at every year, kicking off the party with the honorary opening set, also holds a place close to his heart.

Steve on Production.

Germany‘s true master of the electronic past, present and future, Steve Bug is an artist through and through, bristling with excitement, endearing energy and honesty, talking passionately about his career and his upcoming projects. As always he‘s firmly locked in the studio, and after the huge effort lovingly expressed through his new album ‚Collaboratory‘, Steve has somewhat morphed into a new, more relaxed and free-rolling producer. Stay tuned for some fresh new projects where the barriers and expectations might be lifted once again, opening up to his pure,
