DJ Marbo presents some states of mind

DJ Marbo presents some states of mind

DJ Marbo has us covered again with a fine double bill of his own inimitable style of futuristic organic pitched down trance in disco clothing, otherwise known as Tokyo Balearic. The hypnotising sound works in almost any setting, in the club, at home, on the subway or on the beach, but one thing is for sure - it's only Marbo that can get you feeling this way... and if you listen closely you can hear the voices that come through the music.

This mix is from the Ukranian Slava Flash gives a taste of the direction the next generation of Eastern European producers and DJs are taking. In regions without long established dance music cultures, the music lovers are less interested in niche minimalistic and heady sounds, instead demanding higher energy, more melody and a positive attitude. Slava Flash is one of the most prolific artists in the region producing no-holds barred progressive dance music, releasing tracks on international labels including Virus Music, Perfect Groove Foundation, Armada, Beat Freak, and Baroque, as well as being a regular fixture at major European festivals.

South West Four Weekender presents Gareth Emery

South West Four Weekender presents Gareth Emery

We bring you the second part in our series of exclusive mixes from a handful of selected artists appearing at this year's South West Four Weekender.

Over the past twelve months, the popularity and buzz surrounding Gareth Emery has reached explosive proportions. One of only a handful of DJs to crack the world’s top ten before the age of 30, this can be attributed to producing pure club anthems like ‘Exposure’ and ‘Metropolis’ and stunning remixes for Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond. He started learning the piano at four and had real interest in guitar-based sounds. But it was a chance trip to Ibiza in 1998 that opened his eyes to the appeal of dance music, and after spending the next three years learning to make music with computers and midi, rather than guitars and pianos, he produced his first electronic track.
These days, his records span the worlds of trance, progressive, electro, and techno, but more importantly, he’s firmly established as one of those rare producers who values quality over quantity. But if there’s one place where he’s even more at home than in his studio, it’s behind the decks. This is where Gareth has morphed into the consummate superstar DJ, unequivocally demolishing dancefloors the world over.

At just 29, Gareth Emery’s well on the way to conquering the electronic music world and is set to dominate at South West Four!

Tokyo Balearic feat. DJ Marbo

Tokyo Balearic feat. DJ Marbo

DJ Marbo is the driving force behind a revolution in music attitudes driven by a need to counter the recycling of old music and self-destructive behaviour so common in the clubs these days. Since the beginning of the acid house movement in the UK Marbo delivered genre destroying sets alongside Harvey. That was a time when people found simple happiness, enjoyment and community in the music, much of which has been lost in the contemporary club scenes.
 
While disco has been enjoying a resurgence and the edit scene has been re-engineering old tracks into more contemporary house grooves, Marbo has uniquely extracted  and untangled the soul, beauty and bass out of hi-tech trance and restructured it into futuristic disco powered soundscapes. It’s simple to listen to, highly emotive and brings us back to the roots of dance music – the feeling of just hearing a track that makes you want to move your body without thinking. This is the future of disco, and the beginning of a positive music revival.
 
Marbo does a weekly Saturday night radio show on Shibuya FM where he plays only new music and the iTunes podcast is available here http://bit.ly/bWk7Gf

Marbo presents Tokyo Balearic

Living in our urban jungle information flashes past us through the internet, mobile phones and TV faster than the speed of thought. We are plugged in and logged in beyond the point of information saturation and overload. Everyday in the digital fog the real and important information is lost. As the knowledge from our experiences is diluted by chemical agents and electromagnetic waves we find ourselves exposed to 24H junk food, cheap liquor, mindless music and desensitized people. The society we live in is the most unnatural in the history of mankind and as the human desire to consume and control grows we will ultimately destroy our world.

Humans are animals that have evolved in a natural habitat for many thousands of years and our physiology requires that we have sunshine, fresh air, organic food, music and rhythm. The innovators and pioneering music makers such as YMO, Giorgio Moroder, Larry Levan (R.I.P.) and Ron Hardy (R.I.P.) led us out of the darkness in the past and now we need to head into a brighter future. Whether we are in Tokyo, Beijing, Pyongyang, Paris, Baghdad, Kabul, Berlin, Barcelona, London or New York the world must find a common language.

Those in Tokyo being at the forefront of the technology devolution have created the new language of 120BPM Trance. Typically psychedelic or rave style trance surges forward at 140+ BPM crushing all in its path and lashing people who demand an escape from reality with noise. It creates dissenters and turns people off but within its details lies a secret and infinite possibilities are unlocked by lowering the BPM and reclaiming the funk, tuning it to a natural human tempo. By learning from our past our DJ crew is rewriting our common language creating a new brighter future with a sound like no other.

Technology is put under our control and pushed to its extremes to accommodate our new vision. Our turntables are customized with the pitch control dropping the tempo by -13.5%. Dampers are added to stabilize the turntables and the stylus, with a needle pressure of 1g draws a deeper and cleaner bass out from the vinyl.. The decks are wired through a first edition UREI 1620 mixer and into a tuned soundsystem consisting of four of ATCs flagship SCM100ASL mid-high range active speakers and four Funktion One 18h bass bin towers. No isolators are used and all music is played from one track per side mastered 12" vinyl.

The DJ is positioned in the middle of the sound of the four speaker tower so no monitor speakers are used. The sound the DJ hears is that which is heard on the dancefloor building the unity between the DJ and the audience. The DJ also overlays the sound from a Schumann Wave Generator, amplifying the resonant frequency of the Earth and its atmosphere, purifying negative energies and correcting electromagnetic disharmony.

While one floor moves to the sound of the future 120 BPM contemporary Balearic Trance, the other is educational and highlights the history of Balearic classics. The whole experience is complimented by organic eRakuichi Rakuzaf booths serving quality refreshments. 'Ayanas' creates a more natural atmosphere by creating a green and lush background of healing plants and flowers. 'Karava' delights your senses while 'Sala Shanti' massages your body and soul.

A world renowned sound system. A Schumann Wave Generator. The dancfloor pulses. Past meets future. One world under one groove. Tokyo Balearic. The healing revolution starts here.

Future Sound of Clapton Presents Jesse Somfay

Future Sound of Clapton Presents Jesse Somfay

Jesse discovered electronic dance music in the mid 1990's listening to the radio. Although at the time it was mainly commercial dance Jesse was listening to, it was a beginning which would eventually lead him to DJing and production. Jesse began experimenting with electronic production in the late 1990s; although it was nothing serious, it did help feed his sense of rhythm which would continue to grow.

In 2000, Jesse gained his first set of turntables and began buying records he had heard on online radio shows in the late 1990's. He played hard techno for a couple of years but his earlier musical preferences lead him to produce and play more progressive and emotive music. With these many years of experimentation, Jesse's music has caught the ears of many with his emotional, psychedelic, progressive and moving tracks and long, epic DJ sets full of energy and emotion. He is always being inspired by new and old music and constantly broadening his horizons with the focus constantly on creativity, innovation and emotion.

To this day Jesse is continuously growing, learning and discovering an endless number of new musical possibilities. He holds steadfast to his belief that genre barriers should play no part in his productions and sets. You'll never know what to expect from him but you can be assured it will be total quality and furiously heady and intense. For Jesse, music is not about trying to fit in or follow trends but creating totally new experiences, constantly evolving and morphing journeys, which follow no guidlines and are never held behind barriers."
