After a hugely successful 2014, Nicole Moudaber joins the legendary canon of Yoshitoshi with a mesmerizing remix for Alcatraz’ seminal track ‘Giv Me Luv.’

It takes a lot to achieve the status of ‘legendary’ or ‘era-defining’ in dance music, its sands shift so quickly artists, genres and labels have often come and gone before you realize. So it’s with some pride and deserved justification that Yoshitoshi marks its 20th anniversary with celebratory remix packages of its most iconic tracks. Already riding high in the Beatport charts with the success of the Uto Karem and Robosonic mixes of Eddie Amador’s ‘House Music’, the latter of which has spent the past month in the overall top 5, the label now plans a one, two punch with the follow-up: Alcatraz’ seminal ‘Giv Me Luv.’

“We thought long and hard about how we scheduled this 20th anniversary project,” says label boss Sharam, “little point launching big and then following up with a whimper so we deliberately chose Alcatraz for this difficult task. But the challenge didn’t end there; a massive record still deserves a massive remix and I think it’s safe to say we found the perfect woman for the job…”

Step forward undisputed techno titan Nicole Moudaber who leapt at the opportunity to remix the track. “I’ve got so many fond memories of ‘Giv Me Luv’, it was one of my favorite tunes from my formative clubbing days,” recalls Nicole happily, “so, when Yoshi mentioned the idea of me remixing it I just couldn’t say no. In fact I was so familiar with Alcatraz I was already awash with ideas of what I could, or should, do with it. As I got into the mix one of those ideas just grew and grew, namely an extended breakdown that constantly builds; layering the memorable vocal to an intense pay-off and (hopeful) moment of real dance floor drama.”

Nicole’s humble description doesn’t quite do the end result justice, which is a modern, masterful take on the classic. Her iconic techno beats, dark twisted stabs and arrangement of ‘that’ bassline drive toward the mentioned break, which will undoubtedly rival the fireworks of any impending NYE celebrations. In fact, expect this track to be THE soundtrack to many a dance floor come the all-important hand-over to 2015.

And, just in case that weren’t enough, Yoshi has also secured the skills of Trent Cantrelle to deliver the perfect deep house foil to Nicole’s techno ferocity as Sharam concludes, “We wanted a real slice of contemporary funk from the companion mix. Yoshi is synonymous with exploring the line between deep house and techno, perhaps no more so than during its formative years, so this remix completes the package perfectly.”

Nicole Moudaber is excited to ring in the New Year in style with two extra-special shows. For New Years Eve, Nicole will be closing out the Awakenings & Carl Cox presents party at the formidable Gashoulder in Amsterdam alongside a heavyweight line-up that includes, Carl Cox and Pan-Pot. Shortly after the finishing up on the decks at Gashoulder, Nicole will jet over to Ibiza for Circo Loco’s infamous New Year’s Day party “The Melting Pot” at DC-10. The New Years Day party is one not to be missed, and with such a star-studded line-up including Carl Cox, Tania Vulcano, Cassy, Jackmaster and many more, you can guarantee they will deliver the perfect soundtrack for party-goer’s first dance in the New Year.

The revelry continues at The BPM Festival for the annual In The MOOD label showcase with Nicole headlining with support from Marino Canal. This year’s party will be held at the newly built La Santanera nightclub and for those not in Playa, the party will be available for live stream and on-demand at BE-AT.TV on January 15, 2015.

The BPM Festival is proud to present the newest installment of its official podcast series featuring DJ Sneak’s “I’M A HOUSE GANGSTER LIVE,” showcasing three hours of his signature underground house. Listen The BPM Festival Podcast 25 – DJ Sneak Podcast “I’M A HOUSE GANGSTER LIVE” on Mixcloud here, Soundcloud here, or iTunes here. DJ Sneak returns to The BPM Festival 2015 with his “I’m A House Gangster” showcase featuring DJ Heather, Doc Martin, Jesse Perez, Josh Wink, Mark Farina and Paolo Rocco at Mamita’s Beach Club on January 11, 2015. Tickets are available while supplies last at TheBPMFestival.com.
One of house music’s true pioneers, DJ Sneak has the passion and drive to keep house music alive. Self-proclaimed House Gangster, Sneak has helped shape the course of dance music since the early 90s; his early music influencing the likes of Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden. His signature sounds – funky filtered disco-influenced house and tough, jacking beats – have revolutionized and redefined house music for well over 15 years. Having begun his DJ’ing career in 1983, Sneak continues to be at the top of his game: non-stop beat bumpin’ sets are a one of a kind experience in the electronic music circuit, and a barrage of top quality releases over the last 20 years have culminated and just keep on coming. Meanwhile, “House Gangster” is a concept that was inspired from a hotline that in turn created a motive to inspire and increase followers specifically to house music, with “gangster” used in referenced to those who have that undying commitment and passion for house music, bottom line.

#BPM2015
The sun and fun-filled 10-day sesh in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, is the only way to get 2015 off on the right foot. The line-up is among the best you’ll find anywhere in the world this year and the prospect of hiding from the sultry winter winds and crippling January debt makes BPM seem so appealing right now.”  - Mixmag

“Now in its eighth year, BPM has become a winter tradition for many, as the festival takes over various venues and clubs in the resort town of Playa Del Carmen. Like last year, 2015′s instalment will go on for ten days spread across over 75 events, and as ever, it’s heavy on the big names, cutting a wide swathe through house and techno.” - ResidentAdvisor

The BPM Festival is excited to announce the Phase 2 artist lineup, showcases and venues for its 2015 edition taking place January 9-18, 2015 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
This year, both day and night parties will take place at the newly renovated Blue Parrot. The brand new, open and spacious venue will feature a pool overlooking the Mayan Riviera, along with an open air restaurant, and will be complete with a full D&B sound system. Day parties will also return to Mamitas Beach Club, the bohemian Fusion Beach Club and scenic Canibal Royal, all located right along the white sandy beaches and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Stay tuned for a special Cenote party, located in one of the oldest cenotes in the Mayan Riviera, to be announced.
Meanwhile, night parties will also be hosted at the newly built La Santanera at its new location, featuring three floors of music, including the open-air Terrace and Bar, and the main room Club. Parties also return to the intimate club Tabu, as well as Tribeca, which will host a series of free parties showcasing up and coming talent, and the legendary Blue Venado, with an open air palapa and adjacent private beach for unforgettable parties under the stars until sunrise.

Time Warp US: 9,500 Fans From 34 Countries Attend Inaugural US Techno Festival In Brooklyn

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Time Warp US: 9,500 Fans From 34 Countries Attend Inaugural U.S. Techno Festival In Brooklyn
“Techno has arrived in America. Well, at least in Brooklyn.” - Billboard.com

This past weekend Germany’s long running Time Warp festival, along with local partner Teksupport, invaded Brooklyn with a spectacular two-night festival bringing together some of the world’s most renown techno artists and local underground talent.

On the heels of their 20-year anniversary celebration, Time Warp presented their inaugural US event to over 9,500 fans from 34 countries at the 39th Street Pier along the Brooklyn waterfront. Time Warp imported their signature production, The Cave, a stunning full-floor design concept modeled after an arctic ice cave, unifying the stage and dancefloor, and allowing the sonic textures of underground techno to come alive and completely immerse the audience.  

Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams made a special appearance during The Martinez Brothers set and shared welcome remarks on the microphone, “This is great for Brooklyn. I support this and I want this to happen in Brooklyn.” Other Brooklyn representatives include underground dance music purveyors BlkMarket Membership’s Taimur & Fahad andResolute’s Connie, Lauren Ritter, and Orazio Rispo.

“We are very happy with the first edition of Time Warp US and want to thank the entire team, the fans for their warm welcome and enthusiasm, as well as the artists. We feel honored that Brooklyn’s Borough President visited TW and celebrated the festival in Brooklyn.”
- Robin Ebinger (Time Warp Festival / Cosmopop, Founder & Head of Marketing)

Other highlights of the weekend include – spectacular performances by Time Warp ambassadors Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Dixon, Pan-Pot, and tiNI; U.S. techno flag-bearers Josh Wink, The Martinez Brothers, Frank & Tony, and Anthony Parasole; No Regular Play’s live performance with trumpet, vocals and keyboard; Italian techno don Joseph Capriati building the momentum for the first night; DJ Tennis ending his set with New Order classic “Blue Monday”; the Time Warp debut of Pioneer’s new PLX-1000 turntables; and memorable weekend closing sets by Luciano, Sonja Moonear, Richie Hawtin and Dixon.

Most notably, the North American premiere of the highly acclaimed dubfire:liveHYBRID show fused 2D and 3D animation with live audio and lighting to great effect. On the success of the epic live show, Dubfire says, Time Warp was even more special as I had an opportunity to perform my HYBRID show to the legions who have supported me and my music for the past 7 years.”

Time Warp US would like to thank its official partners Warsteiner beer, Red Bull, and Pioneer.

Time Warp concluded its successful ‘20 Years Tour’ in The Netherlands with six stages and 34 artists on December 6. TimeWarp Germany 2015 is announced for April 5, 2015 in Mannheim, Germany. Advance tickets are available now at www.time-warp.de/germany.

See you next year #TWUS2015!

 “The festival production was undeniably impressive, particularly on the sprawling Cave Stage that played host to most of the event’s marquee acts. Emulating the gaping maw of the Mannheim original with a full-floor design modeled after an arctic ice cave, the stage bristled with an intimidating sea of strobes that perfectly complemented the space age soundtrack. The sound quality, an important detail for techno’s discerning fan base, was also surprisingly good.” – BILLBOARD
  “It was wonderful to see so many underground house and techno fans who all came together to support Time Warp’s first foray in the USA. The production quality for such an event was unprecedented and has set the tone for what I hope to be even more Time Warp festivals in the near future!” – DUBFIRE   “Without a doubt this was a well organized and momentous event that will set the stage for more massive warehouse festivals to take place, in the city that never sleeps.” – ELEKTRO 
   “We were very impressed by the level of production and professionalism at Time Warp. From top to bottom, but especially the sound, it was a great experience!” – FRANK & TONY
   “I have been honored to be a part of the Time Warp Festival since inception.  Over the years Time Warp has become one of the best festivals in the world always being at the forefront of techno and house music. Their production and sound is always second to none. It has always been one of my favorite events to play in the world and it was a privilege as an American artist to be at the first stateside event. It made me so proud to see such a big crowd turnout and support techno and house music. I look forward to being a part of many more Time Warp‘s in the future!” – JOSH WINK
   “Great first edition of Time Warp US!! New York rocked, and I had a blast playing for the American crowds. Amazing to see so many fans embracing the underground side of Electronic Music. Looks like Techno is breaking through there, going back to where it all started from. Can’t wait for more of this!!” – LUCIANO
   “We had such a blast playing at Time Warp. Really nice to see so many people come out and support. Hopefully, this was the first of many in New York!” - NO REGULAR PLAY
“Great experience to see the legendary Time Warp production coming over to the states.“ - PAN-POT
“The first edition of Time Warp is the first step of the pioneeristic process to bring the sound of techno to the Big Apple, helped by local promoters and clubs who are working in the area during the rest of the year. I am so proud and happy to be part of this.” -DJ TENNIS

Verboten is proud to announce the lineup for its massive New Year’s marathon “All That Glitters” with Lee Burridge, Andhim, Matthew Dekay, Bedouin and Mike Khoury. The festivities kick off on December 31 with Andhim, Bedouin and Mike Khoury to usher in the New Year, then swings into the late night with Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekay, providing a marathon of the finest underground house and techno to ring in 2015. For this very special event, Verboten is upping the ante on the production it has become known for, transforming their raw, industrial space into a glittering, futuristic wonderland for “All That Glitters.” Two rooms of over-the-top decor, interactive performers, aerialists, panoramic video and tons of giveways kick off 2015 in true shimmering style. Guests are encouraged to dress in theme in their best silver, mirror or disco ball inspired outfits, and some comfy dancing shoes as Verboten will be staying open extra late for this NYE Marathon.

Verboten also presents a special New Year’s Eve dinner party by Chef Chris McLaughlin as part of its monthly Supper Club series in the Cabaret Bar. Dinner includes a three course meal from Verboten’s new dinner menu, complimentary cocktail pairings, and admission to the party afterwards. 8 pm dinner, 10 pm dancing. Tickets are available at VerbotenNewYork.com.

Lee Burridge’s illustrious DJ career has spanned at least three continents and seen him work alongside some of the England’s most revered DJ’s, and he’s been featured on DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll for 9 consecutive years. When asked what kind of music he plays, he usually doesn’t have an answer but explains: “The records that can’t really be described. Those are the ones that always interest me. Wonky, Wobbly, bassline driven, trippy, melodic, mean, nasty, gentle, deep, spacious, distant and rocking.interesting not obvious.

Dutch DJ and composer Matthew Dekay’s label All Day I Dream, is responsible for pushing some of today’s most romantic, melancholic and emotional house music. Since breaking out into the scene with his first official release on One Star Records in 2001, Matthew Dekay has completed a metamorphosis through many styles and sounds, and has now returned to where he feels the most comfortable expressing his creativity – in underground music.

Made up of Simon Haehnel and Tobias Müller, Andhim have been honing their musical skills since their teenage years, drawing influence from a background in hip hop to create an energetic and soulful style of electronic dance music. Their unique, party-proven sound, which they describe as “super house,” has become its very own genre built from their soul and passion. The duo continues to hold up their reputation of transforming the decks into instruments themselves to create an extended sphere of music. Listen to their latest track, a remix of The 2 Bears’ “Not This Time” here.

Brooklyn’s own Tamer Malki and Rami Deejay are staples on the East Coast, but together they create the unstoppable Bedouin. The duo’s debut EP ‘Mirage’ is available now on Beatport, and has been dubbed “brilliant” by Pete Tong.

Mike Khoury’s sets continually blur the lines between techno, minimal, and tech-house. His fresh grooves, driving basslines, and dancefloor funk keep the late night revelers on their toes. He draws inspiration from the cutting edge sounds coming out of Berlin without forgetting his Chicago roots.
