RTK



2009 was a very successful year for the Round Table Knights, not only playing some of the best nu-disco/house music where they presented themselves, but producing some fantastic original tracks of their own. They have displayed an array of genuine talent, and even after a decade, are showing even more charisma. They first embarked on their journey from Switzerland, and as of yet, have settled in with Mowgli's Deadfish label, and Jesse Rose's Made To Play Records... not bad.

Also, out now on Beatport, show support and download their new Calypso EP;

Go Go Bizkitt!!!



Tom Nelson of Edinburgh goes by the name "GO GO BIZKITT" and over the last year has been taking, not only the blogosphere but the NuDisco/Frenchhouse scene by storm. Is this short time he has put together some delicious originals (Check out The BizKitt EP) and remixes. Go Go Bizkitt can produce hit after hit. The sheer volume is astounding, upwards of 40 tracks in the last year... and each track is as good as the last. I don't see how he finds time to play any shows.
Just take a listen for yourself and see how its all polished up for this young lad. He is now the top of my list and I can't wait to see it all in live action.

Home Grown : Young Liars



I have no idea where the Young Liars came from but I cannot stop listening to their single "Colours", a great tune that is accompanied by many more. All I know is that they are based in Vancouver, have some shows lined up with the WinnieCooper.net boys, and have some of my other favorite how town groups like Teen Daze and Pro Nails remixing their new singles.

I can't wait to see them live and I hope to see you all there showing your support for some great new Vancouver talent.

Hidden Cat - Kill em all EP



Madison Bullard, better known as "Hidden Cat" hails from Raleigh North Carolina to melt your brain with his new EP "Kill em All." It features Gianpaolo Dieli, NT89 and Photonz all remixing his latest hit "Get With It." Guaranteed to cause all sort of havoc on dance floors everywhere this track has been driving my sets over the edge and into the deep end. Enjoy the twisted tunes.

Renaissance Man



The Finnish duo of Jaxxon and Downtown, make up Renaissance Man. The genius behind their music, had begun with nothing more than their similarity towards the love of perfecting music. Their successful journey had all started in an architecture office, in which they met, and ultimately made a vow to one another. Their interests endlessly fed off of eachother, and they were able to actually build the type of house they wanted.

"We are Renaissance Man, we craft house music without boundaries."


They had opened their first night club in Helsinki, NOW!, where they had initially begun to treat the people to the sounds of their musical talents. In early 2009 they had released Spraycan on Switch's Dubsided. Not only do they produce much of their own music, after launching their title track What Is Guru, it made Renaissance Man one of the most sought-after remixers, spoken from brilliant artists such as Brodinski, and Crystal Fighters, and gaining support from no others but Diplo, Annie Mac, Tiga, and a vast expanse of names around the globe.

Their snowball effect on the music world has allowed them to play amongst four continents in major clubs, and play at numerous festivals where they have had many great reviews. And they aren't stopping there! Earlier this year they released their Babbadabba EP, and have continued to take their inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci, and 3000 years of art and science, to prove that they are able to think out of the box.

Yuksek



Born in '77, Pierre-Alexandre Busson had spent his early years transfixed on the piano, when he soon realized that being a music teacher was about the extent that he could go at that pace. At the impressionable age of 17, he soon let go of his childhood and embarked on an adventure into the music world. And look where it has taken him. His poppy-house beats, a little bit of disco here, and a little punk there, the catchy melodies and outward electronica that he has made are dance floor devastation's.

“I compose really instinctively. I never think about what I’m going to do before going into the studio. I work fast and just let my mood guide me.”

This just shows how spontaneous of an artist he is. There is no emptiness in his tracks. Each song shows a rollercoaster of different FX's, and experimental mixing. And so it began, he became 'post Soulwax/Justice disco-rock club culture,' and it will not be stop anytime soon. His cultivation, mixing sensibility, and sexy image have only just begun.

Paul Thomas

There is no inability on his part, to get hundreds of people together and make the walls of whatever venue he is in, throb. In the UK, he is one of undying interests of the electro/house scene. Not only stopping at that, for the past several years he has been touring around the globe to play in six different countries.

With only being 29, dj/music producer/remixer Nic Fanciulli, has labeled Thomas as one of the most consistent and freshest Dj's around. Being a part of Godskitchen, which is an international superclub brand which is particularly located around the United States, and the United Kingdom, and a part of Global Gathering, he is the furthest thing from a stranger to any type of big event. His sound, similar to Avicii, is seemingly flawless to his partygoers, and although a similar feel, he cannot be compared. He is his own entity.




Big tracks have not been stopping from Toolroom Records. His position as producer, has allowed him to put together remixes for Basement Jaxx, Sebastien Leger, and the sought after Deadmau5. Putting out summer anthems such as Basement Jaxx - Raindrops has received a lot of support on Radio 1, and is envisioned to continue strong. 2010 has been a big year, collaborating with Funkagenda, and producing one of his best songs. The new year foresees the launch of Paul's record label Dex in the City Recordings , as well as a radio show that should be soon to follow.
