FACT Mag on Silent Servant’s “Negative Fascination”

Earlier this month, Juan Mendez released Negative Fascination, his debut album as Silent Servant. Best known for his involvement in Sandwell District, which has ceased to exist as a record label but continues, it would seem, to operate as a loose collective of sorts, Mendez’s roots in techno extend back to the 1990s, when he was making music as Jasper running the celebrated Cytrax label alongside Kit Clayton and Steve Tang. Having subsequently founded the more dancefloor-oriented Delay imprint, an offshoot of Cytrax, Mendez crossed paths with Karl O’Connor, aka Regis….

FLASHBACK<< BBC's Essential Mix. Maya Jane Coles

Hands down one of my favorite mixes of 2011. BBC does it agin featuring young and talented producers like Maya Jane Coles. I reposted this this mix from last year for all who missed the download on BBC Radio1. What a year 2011 was for Maya Jane Coles. Voted ‘Producer of the Year 2011′ by DJ Mag, named ‘Best Breakthrough DJ 2011′ by Mixmag, debuting at No. 9 on the Resident Advisor ’2011 DJ Poll’, scooping ‘Best Newcomer 2011′ at the Ibiza DJ Awards 2011, many magazine covers and the likes of Anja Schneider, Ellen Allien, Damon Alburn and Tricky all queuing up to offer their praise.

Well that was 2011 and this is most definitely 2012 where the bar is set to be raised once more for this rather unique 24-year old, British/Japanese producer; with Maya already scheduled to dj in over 20 countries in the first 6 months alone, some interesting release projects to be announced, some huge remixes and of course – the big one, the release of Maya’s debut album. Keep your eyes open for this release.

Cocoon Heroes. From Ibiza to New York City.

Cocoon is Ibiza and Ibiza is Cocoon. The magic, the electrifying atmosphere, the heat of the night — this is, in our dynamic times, one of the few possibilities to stop the clock, to feel the universe, to forget the monotony of everyday life and to leave it all behind. It’s the power of the island and the “spirit of cocoon” in the year 2012 — that year when we step into the age of Aquarius, it’s the turn of eras, it is spirituality and transcendence. Let us take you into the year of the magic, to the island of magic and dive into the magical night.

Afro Acid meets The Pioneers Of House Music

The word ‘legend’ should be used sparingly, but there’s no doubt that DJ Pierre’s contribution to the world of electronic music places him in that category. Credited as the inventor of acid house via the 1987 release of Acid Tracks under the name Phuture, the group he set up with Spanky and Herb J, it was while messing around with a Roland TB-303- designed to simulate a bass guitar – that Pierre discovered the distinctive squelchy, bubbling sound that sparked a revolution in club music.
