We listened to a lot of fantastic music during last year's trip to ADE, and we're pleased to say that a lot of it came from our own artists! We also came across a few DJs who weren't quite so familiar, but who made us take a step back and say 'wow!'. First on this list is Jean Pierre Enfant.
He's a resident at Trouw, founder of the Les Enfants Terribles parties in Amsterdam, and a proud supporter of vinyl. It's the sheer momentum that he manages to generate in his sets that caught our eye, merging warm house sounds alongside dark, paranoid techno to create a very special musical atmosphere.
Here he provides us with a set recorded at one of his own LET events at Trouw. You can catch him at our next Glasgow event at Saint Judes on Saturday 8th March. Until then, enjoy the music!
For the next installment in our podcast series, we bring you London-based composer Liz Cirelli; a classically trained musician with a love for electronic music. She's had a string of releases on reputable labels such as Klangwelt and Tulipa, but it was her groundbreaking electronic/classical work with violinist Minski (released on Henry Saiz' Natura Sonoris label) that initially caught our attention. Her music caresses your ears and oozes emotion.
The next few months will be an exciting time for Liz with releases alongside Minski on Secret Music (you can listen to the highly mesmerizing 'A Year & One Day in this mix). Her own Hummingbird parties will launch in January. With emphasis on stimulation of all the senses, these events promise to provide a fresh, unique music experience.
We trust you'll enjoy discovering her music as much as we have.
For the first installment of our podcast we'd like to introduce a man who has 'future music' written all over him; Dimitris Diamantis aka Corvum. Born in Greece, he works as a musician, composer, DJ and sound designer and his music has been of interest to us for quite some time now.
He began classical piano at the age of 5, before leaving Greece to expand his musical knowledge whilst studying in Austria and Italy. The piano eventually made way for the synthesizer, and by the late 80s he was immersed in the electronic music scene. In the early 90's 'Corvum' was born, and the rest is history.
We hope you enjoy his music as much as we do!
