As one of the founding members of Faithless, Sister Bliss has become one of Britain's most popular figures in the Electronica scene. With her proclaimed DJ sets and 15-year career as the musical drive behind Faithless, what many might not realise is her history as a musician and DJ before that point. Sister Bliss started learning the piano at the age of five, moving on to violin, saxophone, flute and eventually the bass. A love affair with house music began in 1987, leading her to become one of the few female house DJs in Britain at the time. With appearances at the most popular clubs worldwide, she began to make her own records and had already released a number of her own compositions by the time she met fellow producer, Rollo. The two began to write and record together while she continued her solo career, and their collaborations eventually culminated in a new studio project - Faithless. Their frustrations with the perceived disposability of dance music led them to create a new sonic landscape mixing dance, hip-hop, blues, folk and classical music - a dramatic bed for the thoughtful lyrics of Buddhist rapper Maxi Jazz. Faithless' first eclectic album Reverence (released in 1996), was an underground sensation as the single 'Insomnia' started to climb steadily up the charts in Europe. The re-release of 'Insomnia' a year later changed all of that. It became one of the biggest club anthems of the decade and the album climbed to Gold Status in at least 22 countries. The Mercury-nominated album Sunday 8pm followed, reflecting upon themes of alienation and lost love, and featured one of their favourite singers, Boy George. It also spawned the provocative hit 'God is a DJ'. Sister Bliss continued DJing and releasing solo singles 'Sister Sister' and 'Deliver Me'. In 2001 Faithless returned to the studio releasing the platinum selling album Outrospective. Their next album, the more politicised No Roots featured the incendiary anti-war single 'Mass Destruction' and went straight in at Number 1. After four albums and ten years, Faithless decided to celebrate with the release of Forever Faithless - their Greatest hits collection which went to number 1 and has sold over 1.5 million copies in the UK alone. While Faithless took a well earned break from touring, Sister Bliss wrote the music accompanying the three series TV drama Life Begins, featuring Bafta winner Caroline Quentin. She was also commissioned to compose an original work for the London Sinfonietta which was performed at the Fuse Festival, UK. Faithless' fifth studio album To All New Arrivals followed in 2006, heralding the birth of her son, and featuring collaborations with Grammy award winner Cat Power, Dido and Robert Smith of The Cure. Sister Bliss' first work for theatre was Thea Sharrock's highly successful production of The Emperor Jones at the National Theatre in 2007. In 2009 she was again invited to compose for the NT for Jatinder Vermas production of The Black Album. She also wrote the title music for acclaimed British film, The Hide.
Whilst continuing her successful residencies at Ministry of Sound (London) and Pacha (Ibiza) and inspired by her global DJing schedule, Faithless released their most recent album The Dance in 2010 featuring artists, Dougy Mandagi (Temper Trap), Mia Maestro, and Blancmange - returning to their roots in club culture and dance music. After a summer full of acclaimed festivals sets including Glastonbury's 40th anniversary, and a global tour ending in April 2011, their final show was broadcast live to thousands of fans in cinemas across Europe. To date, Faithless have sold in excess of 15 million records globally and have played live to millions across the world. Last Summer, Sister Bliss toured with Faithless Sound System, a stripped-down version of the full act, whilst continuing her successful DJ residencies, and playing the international club and festival circuit.
Together with Rollo Armstrong, she collaborated with Example on his number-one album Playing In The Shadows. She has also written the score for the film Knife Fight starring Rob Lowe, and directed by 2-times Oscar winner, Bill Guttentag. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2012. 2012 will see Sister Bliss release a wealth of new material on Ministry of Sound, with a number of exciting collaborations, and a worldwide DJ tour. Sister Bliss' radio show broadcasts on Ministry of Sound radio every Friday night at 7pm.

When Martin Eyerer tells a story, everybody listens. Martin reports of his journeys throughout the continents, telling stories of wild escapades in a taxi across the Brazilian jungle through to the impressions of Earth's capitals and the colourful array of citizens that inhabit them, and obviously of his many Gigs in these foreign lands. Those foreign places quickly become familiar territory when he sets up his digital DJ-system and starts to play that thumping first track because what he plays is groovy Electro-Tech House and the sound is a world language of its own that is euphorically absorbed through sweaty pores and pumping glands. His passion is eminently clear when he starts to talk about his experiences and such is his passion and enthusiasm for the music that one could easily think it was all totally new to him. But it isn't. Martin Eyerer has been a DJ for 20 years - and just as many years a producer, label owner, radio show producer. Throw in his two young children and it seems that the energy never leaves his side. Martin Eyerer is not a laptop artist, but a true musician. His high-end studio meets the highest requirements and has become an interdisciplinary interface for mastering (whether it is Hip Hop, Pop or Electronic) and he is also co-producing several mainstream acts (Eyerer e.g.became a gold record in UK). On top of all this, the Tech-House Posse around him like Gui Boratto,Oliver Koletzki, Toni Rios, Stephan Hinz, Namito, Chopstick, Oliver Klein or Robert Babicz come to his house to jam. It is a small circle of friends who share the same musical interest and who put 200% in to every release they do.
Whether collaborations, solo Works, Remixes or Compilations, all his works appear almost monthly on dance-floor dominating labels, like Kling KLong,Systematic,Audiomatique, Great Stuff, Kickboxer and on English big names like Renaissance or i/o records. The most unbelievable aspect of this is the variety of styles Martin stands for. There is no segment from Deep house to minimal Techno that Eyerer is not in control of, always keeping his focus on the dance-floor. This consistently high-quality of output results in rocking world-wide floor-fillers, spun by the most well-known DJs. Beyond that, hits like Make My Day (Haunting) by Eyerer and Chopstick feat. Zdar/Cassius made their way into the A-rotation of English music television.
As an important platform for his music Martin Eyerer has founded his own labels - Kling Klong and Session Deluxe. Due to the conscientious release policy (releasing artists like Koletzki, Namito, Oliver Klein, Babicz and Eyerer himself the Label boss was able to establish an independent sound between electro, minimal and tech-house on Kling Klong and more tooly, housy and underground on Session Deluxe. Releases of both Labels always enter the top 20 of all sales and download charts for electronic music.
Peak time is the best time in a DJ-set, but in Martin Eyerers opinion, you have to work for it as a DJ - there is no way to force it. With that philosophy he builds up his sets, using the newest material and unfolds an oppressive, sizable Groove. Martin Eyerer does not try to get through the night with the current hits. Instead, he travels his very own sound-spectrum in one intuitively construed DJ-set. These legendary sets make their way around the globe resulting in Martin playing regularly in all parts of the world.
But Martin wants to reach more people than only those who frequent nightclubs. Thats why he regularly works on mix compilations, e.g. his own series on Session Deluxe. He has also set up same called Session De Luxe a national weekly radio-show that goes out live every Sunday evening on Sunshine live - Germanys biggest station for dance music, and its on this platform that Eyerer presents all the latest releases for his hungry following to devour as they polish of their weekends activities on sofas, in bedrooms or in the car on their way home after visiting their parents for Sunday lunch in the country. By himself or with guests like e.g. Bodzin, Anthony Rother, Chardronnet, Huntemann, Gregor Tresher, Abe Duque, Thomas Schumacher, John Selway or Shlomi Aber, Session de Luxe never disappoints. But not only are the monologues important - Martin also involves the listeners, giving everyone the chance to ask questions about anything concerning dance music.
In 2008 he released his debut Album on Kling Klong named Word Of Mouth. It was the next step in establishing him as an international player. The album was released in 12 countries and exported to all the world. Feedback from the media was overwhealming. This and the fact that Martin was supported with plays and respect by most of the international dj league lead to a more than expected number of sales. All in all Word Of Mouth was a big success. Martins first single out of the album furthermore came along with mixes by Marc Romboy and Oliver Klein. The next follow up will be cave canem incl mixes by Gui Boratto, Robert babicz and Someone Else. For 2009 already dj gigs and tours are booked for Brasil,Argentina,Chile, Mexico,China,Japan,India and Australia. Also scheduled studiodates with a few other famous artists. In 2009 he collaborated with Benno Blome, Glimpse and Oliver Klein. Releases on Great Stuff, Sender Records, Buzzin Fly, Blu Fin and Kling Klong were the results. These releases got massive feedback and support by the big ones, like Laurent Garnier, Josh Wink, Richie Hawtin or Carl Cox and many many more. One Highlight next to some others, will be definitely Piano Roll on Great Stuff and Southern Soul on Buzzin Fly (#1 Uk Cool cut charts, #1 UK Buzz chart).
2010 is one of the busiest years in Martin´s career. He releases a new Session Deluxe, and also old and new cooperations wit Daniele Papini or his friend Namito.
This tunes were released on Blu Fin and Kickboxer. After about 1 year break, Martin presented also a new Kling Klong ep, together with Oliver Klein. Furthermore tracks and remixes for Sickness Records and Lo-Fi Stereo and the compilation “Tech House Selection” on Kontor New Media. Above all great releases on Great Stuff, SubBubble Recordings, Mood Music and Monique Musique. Especially the liaison with Sasse, was very successful. Both releases on Monique Musique and Mood Music got great feedback an massive support by Dubfire, Dj Hell, Matthias Tanzmann, Axwell and a lot more.
But THE highlight in 2010 at all, is definitley Martin Eyerer`s second Soloalbum: “Tiny little widgets”. It s just released in October on Blu Fin. Eyerer presented himself as an artist with a lot of different faces. 14 unique tracks. He works with vocals , jazz elements, folk and easy listening stuff. He also made amazing features with Sian Kosheen, Phil Barnes or America Rodriguez and created fantastic vocal tracks. For sure the album includes also typical Martin Eyerer Tehno-House club tunes. Tiny little widgets will be released as 2x Cd and digital download. Very special is the remix package. 14 remixes for the 14 original track. Impressive remixers like Thomas Schumacher, Florian Meindl, Namito, Gel Abril, Tigeskin, Tom Clark and some more presents their interpretation of the originals. Even now the albumtracks as well the remixes getting support by top acts of all genres: Dubifre, Axwell, 2000 and One, Anja Schneider, Tom Novy Stephan Bodzin, Reboot, Gregor Tresher, John Digweend and many many more love that stuff. The album world tour, brings Martin to all continents of the earth. After european metropolises like London, Berlin, Rome, Amsterdam, Budapest or Munich, he enters Asia, Australia and South America. On this tour, Martin will promote himself and “Tiny little widgets”, but also he will get a lot of new inspiration for his upcoming works…

Felix da Housecat’s 2001 album, Kittenz and thee Glitz, turned the dance music world on its side as his collaborations with the now infamous Miss Kittin on “Silver Screen” and “Madame Hollywood” and Melistar on “Harlot” and “What Does it Feel Like” spawned a synth club revival. Along the way, Felix gained mainstream press acceptance and was heralded by Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and Spin as one of the most creative artists in music today.
With DEVIN DAZZLE AND THE NEON FEVER (2004, Emperor Norton), Felix once again has sewn together an album a la hip-hop’s Dan The Automator and Prince Paul which taps the talents of varied producers and vocalists and creates a thoroughly enjoyable ride. Boasting guest vocals from James Murphy of DFA/LCD Soundsystem (“What She Wants”) – “He’s a cool white boy with lots of funk,’ states Felix, Tyrone "Visionary" Palmer (“Ready to Wear,” “Neon Human”), Kate Wax, and an all-girl group known as The Neon Fever (“Rocket Ride,” “Short Skirts,” “Everyone is Someone in LA,” “Hunting Season”) Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever transcends simple dance, rock or pop music.
While Kittenz had it’s framework squarely built upon DJ and club culture, Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever is an album built upon punk/post new-wave culture and is deliberately more song oriented. To accomplish this Felix took a new approach. “I decided I wanted to use live musicians for this album,” Felix explains. “I got so tired of the arpeggiated bass lines everyone's using, so I went out an got proper live musicians. I play keyboards because I really wanted to get a live feel for this record."
Talking about some of the cast of characters he enlisted for the album, Felix relates how each had an effect on the superego of the album. The tracks on Devin Dazzle fluctuate between an upbeat spiritual side versus the temptations of the excess of nightlife under neon lights - partying and sex.
The Neon Fever (formerly known as Glamarama) represents the latter. “The Neon Fever are five girls from around the world that represent five different types of women,” states Felix, “I wanted to capture their individual personalities within the lyrics and make their voice a collective through each song. I wanted to capture the inside scoop of guys looking into a woman’s world. I think the result is some lyrics that aren’t what guys would typically write.”
Felix’s Kittenz cohort, Dave the Hustler, introduced Felix to Kate Wax. “I was real impressed with her because although she is a talented and impressive producer in her own right. She was willing to listen and work to improve with me. She’s real pretty and ambitious and for her to go with the vibe it was amazing. ‘Let Your Mind Be Your Bed’ is just the tip of the iceberg given her talent.”
“Tyrone ‘Visionary’ Palmer was the spiritual leader of the entire album and kept me writing about things that were meaningful. He brought a good balance to the record,” relates Felix.
Over the course of 20 years his determination and willingness to re-invent himself have led him to a point that has now included a Grammy nomination, remix work for artists such as Madonna, Garbage, New Order and Giorgio Moroder; to DJ gigs at the world’s most prestigious music festivals. Born in Detroit in 1971 and raised in Park Forrest, outside Chicago, Felix Stallings, Jr.'s earliest influence was his father, a saxophonist who turned him on to classic '70s funk and soul by artists like Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire. His next major musical epiphany came about when Purple Rain dropped and he became the keyboardist for Shades of Blue, a band that covered Prince & the Revolution songs.
In Chicago during the early '80s, the House music revolution grabbed Felix’s attention. For Felix, it centered around Chicago's 102.7 and the pioneering Hot Mix DJs. "I remember listening to Farley ‘Jack Master’ Funk, Mike ‘Hitman’ Wilson, Micky ‘Mixin'’ Oliver, and Kenny ‘Jamming’ Jason," Felix says rattling off the city's House pioneers. By 14 he too was recording house music on his four-track. A school friend introduced him to DJ Pierre who he collaborated with on their classic house track "Phantasy Girl".
But Felix's tastes weren't limited to a single genre. His senior year he played in Uncut, a band with an R&B-like vibe. After graduation he enrolled at Alabama State and began making hip-hop. After two years in the Deep South (an experience he compares to “prison") he flunked out. In 1991, Felix moved into his parents' basement, studied audio engineering at Columbia College and worked at Eduardo's pizzeria. "It was rough," he says. "I hated those ovens and I kept thinking something's got to give."

Welcome to the world of Yves Larock. Writer and producer of Rise Up, Zookey, Girl, Don’t Turn Back, Until Tomorrow and countless more, this self-confessed studio junky is just as much in demand for his devastating DJ skills as he is for his music. A regular at the biggest clubs around the world including those in the States, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia, Yves has become a prolific force in Electronic Dance Music.
His early sounds were influenced by a wide spectrum of music: house, hip-hop, reggae and electro all filtered through into his productions. In 2005 he joined an impressive collective of French DJs and producers who were beginning to formulate the ‘Africanism’ collective. Martin Solveig, Tim Deluxe, Bob Sinclar, DJ Gregory and more began collaborating with a host of African-based artists, their individual styles colliding to create an exciting new sound for the dance scene. The movement set fire to the house scene and introduced the name of Yes Larock to fans that clamoured for more.
That ‘more’ came in the form of an improbably named track called ‘Zookey’. As it started to circulate throughout DJs’ record boxes the track gained massive momentum. Within weeks it was signed to both the Africanism and Defected imprints, not only selling over 150,000 copies in France alone, but going further to scoop the title of ‘most frequently played club track’ of the year, cementing the fact that Yves Larock was a force to be reckoned with.
In 2007, Yves was back, this time smashing all expectations. Collaborating with vocalist Jaba, his track ‘Rise Up’ was the kind of smash hit most other DJs can only dream of. Signed to Universal, Ministry of Sound and 27 other labels worldwide it devastated the charts, securing the number 1 slot across 20 countries and proving itself to be an effective weapon on just about any club dance floor. With wholehearted support from big hitting taste-makers such as Radio 1’s Pete Tong and London’s premier dance music station Kiss FM, it quickly became – and still is – a firm favourite amongst club-goers and music-enthusiasts alike.
Since then, Yves has become unstoppable. Through his own label Millia Records he continues to produce tracks at an obsessive pace. ‘Girl’, ‘Until Tomorrow’, ‘Don’t Turn Back’, ‘Manego’, ‘Without Love’ and more have all proved without question his standing as one of the most prolific producers in the world. If that wasn’t enough, he also finds time to produce the weekly Millia Rock Radio Show. Showcasing some of the hottest tracks currently blowing up his decks as well as world premiers of his own productions, the show airs on some of Europe’s hottest radio stations, from Radio FG exclusively across France, Top FM in Serbia, Pulse Radio in Australia, Germany, Argentina and the UK, RTL in Italy, Radio 1 in Greece, Mixcloud globally and dominating the Portuguese airwaves on an unprecedented five stations nationwide including Nove3cinco, Universidade FM, Kiss FM, Urbana FM and 94 FM.
With global tour dates at the world’s premier venues and festivals, Yves continues to deliver unforgettable nights of truly magical music to his audiences. Whether he’s flying solo or throwing live spectacles with vocalist Jaba into the mix, his performances never cease to impress.
With 2011 already showing signs of being one of Yves’s busiest to date, the man’s impossible hunger to bring more music to an ever expanding audience will only cement him as still one of the most exciting and hard working artists in the industry. The journey is still fresh and exciting for Yves Larock and of course for his fans. The rush, the buzz and the inspiration remain as strong as ever – as does the anticipation from the dance music collective for the next phase in the story of Yves Larock.

DJ Miss Nine has been a major presence on the dance scene for quite some years now. With her eclectic taste in music, ranging from energetic grooves with plenty of vocals to a deeper, progressive sound, Miss Nine turns heads and moves feet wherever she performs.
Miss Nine was born in Germany as Kristin Schrot and at the age of 16, she started her career – not as a DJ, but as a model. Shortly thereafter, she secured a worldwide contract with Elite Model Management. After moving to Amsterdam, she discovered the art of DJ’ing and her passion for music eventually led her become a DJ as well. In 2003, only a few months after touching the decks for the first time, she became a resident DJ at the legendary Motion parties where she evolved as an artist and DJ while playing alongside masters such as John Digweed, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren, and James Zabiela.
2003 was also the year that Miss Nine took to the decks as the youngest artist at the 10th edition of Dance Valley (renowned Dutch Dance Festival). At the end of 2005, Miss Nine was then asked by Grammy Award winning DJ duo, Deep Dish to join Bullitt Bookings, the reputable agency of A-list DJs. This allowed Miss Nine to enter the forefront of the international DJ scene for the first time.
In 2008, Miss Nine started her own record label called 925 Digital. Having spent so much time in the dance scene, she realized that there were too many excellent progressive-house tracks that didn’t get the release and the attention that they deserved. 925 Digital was created in order to ensure that this didn’t happen and bring progressive house, and the artists behind it, to prominence.
Miss Nine performs all around the globe, spinning at clubs such as Privilege in Ibiza, Avalon in Los Angeles, Warung in Brazil, the Ministry of Sound in London and several Pacha’s around the world. She has also graced the main stage of the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, joining a line-up of, among others, Tiësto and David Guetta.
Miss Nine was the first female DJ to mix a compilation for Washington-based Yoshitoshi Recordings, the world-renowned leader in progressive and big-room house music. The highly anticipated Yoshitoshi Ibiza: Mixed by Miss Nine (YRCDLP15) was released in September 2006 and made it to the number 1 spot on iTunes in the United States. In June of 2008 Miss Nine also released an album on the world famous Armada label: Dancefloor Sessions (ARMA134). Her latest release was in 2010: Fantasia, which is available for purchase in Asia.
Nine Sessions is Miss Nine’s monthly radio show which is broadcasted in more than 35 countries, including DI.fm, Proton, Frisky and Dance Paradise. Since January 2011, Nine Sessions is also available as a podcast on iTunes. During this one-hour show, Miss Nine shares her favorite tracks of the moment with her listeners.
In 2010, Miss Nine became the ambassador of the revolutionary Levi’s® Curve ID line. To draw even more attention to this new line, she mixed the compilation album Levi’s® Curve ID. In addition to spinning at numerous events, which are actively being promoted in Europe and Asia, Miss Nine also hosted Levi’s® presents Miss Nine in the supperclub during the Amsterdam Dance Event in October of 2010.
Miss Nine is also now the face of Pioneer for their new Pioneer 350 series, turntables that are meant for amateur DJs. As part of a European-wide promotional campaign, video clips in which Miss Nine is demonstrating these turntables are being televised on MTV.
She will be touring worldwide in 2011, so make sure to check www.miss-nine.com and catch the queen of the decks at a venue near you!

Bajo este proyecto musical de reconocido prestigio internacional, encontramos a dos profesionales entre los cuales acumulan más de 30 años de experiencia musical. Por un lado Kiko Martínez, creador y propietario de Producciones DocePulgadas es productor radiofónico más de 20 años, tiempo en el que adicionalmente a desarrollar diversos programas de radio a nivel internacional, también ha desarrollado su carrera como dj en el circuito nacional, e incluso con alguna que otra actuación en varios clubs Alemanes. Asimismo, gracias a su gran conocimiento musical, ha colaborado en la edición de publicaciones escritas, portales de clubbing y música electrónica. Musicalmente Kiko Martínez no se cierra a ningún estilo, y por tanto sus sesiones son totalmente eclécticas, progresando siempre desde sonidos elegantes y groovies ha sonidos más contundentes y pisteros.
Por otro lado, encontramos a un todoterreno como Alberto Sola, productor de la edición inglesa de “DocePulgadas RadioShow”. Digna de mención es su residencia durante los cinco últimos años en uno de los mejores clubs Españoles como es Barraca (Vcia.), status que le ha hecho visitar gran número de clubs por toda Europa y compartir cabina con los mejores dj del planeta. En el terreno de la producción ha editado varios vinilos en solitario en sellos como Weave Music, International Freakshow o Quanticman por citar algunos. En la actualidad, está concentrado con sus compañeros de estudio Kiko Martínez y Marvin Deno bajo el pseudónimo SOulMADE, desarrollando un sonido totalmente analógico. Sus primeros remixes como formación verán la luz próximamente.
Starting out in the mid-2000’s, Australian sisters Mim and Liv Nervo made their name by writing smash singles for artists like Ke$ha and Kylie Minogue, remixing superstars like Katy Perry and Thirty Seconds to Mars, and joining forces with David Guetta to co-write his Grammy-winning “When Love Takes Over.” They quickly built upon that experience by releasing music under their own name, NERVO, alongside some of the biggest producers today including Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Nicky Romero, while tearing through arenas across North America on the Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj Femme Fatale tour. Now, one of the most sought after acts in dance music, NERVO, can be found balancing their rigorous worldwide touring schedule while working on their debut album that soaks deadly-catchy melody into the loud, dirty beats that set apart their brand of progressive and electro-house.
When not in the studio Mim and Liv can most likely be found spinning at clubs, parties, and festivals all around the world, with their travels including stops at Lollapalooza, Electric Daisy, Ultra and Tomorrowland where they notably celebrated their first Beatport #1 song, “The Way We See The World” (the official Tomorrowland 2011 anthem, co-written and co-produced with Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas, and Like Mike). Their club addiction manifested itself in their first Winter Music Conference party this past year (a Delano Hotel event that featured NERVO along with R3HAB, Adrian Lux, Sneaky Sound System, Hook N Sling, and Quintino) as well as two major residencies in 2012: one at the Wynn Hotel Group in the newly anointed EDM mecca of Las Vegas, the other at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel.
“We’re pop writers and we’re club addicts,” notes Mim. To that end, their latest single “You’re Gonna Love Again” layers heartache-curing lyrics over in-your-face beats and a synth-drenched sound that slays. It’s the follow up to their debut single “We’re All No One” released in 2011, which saw the Australian sisters teaming up with the aforementioned Steve Aoki and Afrojack to top charts all over the world.
As they balance DJ-ing with songwriting/producing and making their own music—and also serving as hosts of NERVO Nation, their monthly show on SiriusXM’s BPM channel—the globe-trotting duo considers spinning essential to honing in on the perfect sound. “Since we’re not spending all our time in the studio anymore, we get to play our records when we DJ and instantly see how the crowd reacts,” says Mim. “We’re always educating ourselves with that feedback. And those moments when people have their hands in the air and they’re loving the tunes—it’s one of the best rushes you can experience. It means everything to us.”

In the realm of dance music, there are few producers that thrive on blurring the boundary between eclectic experimenter and populist ass-shaker as much as Q-Burns Abstract Message. Equally comfortable covering Krautrock legends Faust or dropping his favorite chunky house grooves into the mix, Q-BAM—known to his parents as Michael Donaldson—is indeed the rare auteur. Whether globetrotting as a DJ, co-running the Eighth Dimension Records label, remixing artists like Rabbit in the Moon, Fila Brazillia and Mazi & Collete, or recording his own original productions, Donaldson is all about the coaxing the maximum soul out of the machine.
Based in Orlando since the early-’90s, the former record shop owner and college radio DJ has spent the past two decades developing a sound that is obsessively devoted to the funk. His animated, vodka-soaked DJ sets have won audiences for the well-traveled Donaldson from San Francisco to (literally) Siberia, and landed him primo opening slots for GusGus, Chemical Brothers and Meat Beat Manifesto.
However, it’s his playful rhythms, surprising melodic themes and not-so-surprising Eno-esque textures that demand attention. An accomplished indie musician prior to releasing his first single as Q-BAM—the breakbeat noir of “141 Revenge Street” in 1995—Donaldson is first and foremost a songwriter, albeit one that is just as enamored with the sheer power of the groove.
With a trusty Roland Juno 106 synth at his side, Q-BAM released three full-length albums via the respected electronic label Astralwerks, including Invisible Airline which featured several collaborations with vocalist Lisa Shaw. He has recorded numerous singles for house-centric imprints such as Brique Rouge, Slip N’ Slide, NRK and of course, Eighth Dimension. Q-BAM was also one of the talented producers on alt-country icon Jim White’s 2001 Luaka Bop release No Such Place. The album cast White’s stark vocals in a wasteland of dusty beats and ghostly slide guitars, with Donaldson’s tracks providing some of its most intoxicating moments.
Though his “endless summer” schedule—more than 100 DJ dates annually—and ongoing production projects would seemingly exhaust a mere mortal, Q-BAM rather enjoys this 120-BPM soundtrack. Accordingly, Donaldson and fellow Orlando producer/DJ Atnarko recently launched the deep house label EIGHT-TRACKS, dedicated to releasing “strange sounds that you can dance to,” says Q-BAM himself. Additionally, house imprint Agave Records has tapped Donaldson to throw down a mix CD titled Agave Nectar Vol. 1, now available in fine records shops worldwide..
Currently, Q-BAM is hard at work with his monthly Invisible Airwaves radio show, studio and label duties, and touring schedule. The latest Q-Burns Abstract Message singles include the Italian-horror film inspired “Chainsaw” for EIGHT-TRACKS and a collection of remixes by Cole Medina of the classic Invisible Airlines track “Innocent” (featuring the vocals of Lisa Shaw). As if there wasn’t already enough deliciously warm and gooey queso already piled high on his plate, Q-BAM is also hard at work recording a slew of tracks for an upcoming mystery project, to be launched in 2011.
