JEDSA SOUNDOROM

BIOGRAPHY

There’s no limit to the number of lives you can live in music. Jedsa Soundorom knows this more than most – from his early love affair with hip hop to his wild ride through the 90s house scene, the Paris-based DJ and producer has sampled more sides of the music game than most. He first saw the light at parties in London before holding down a high-level residency at Les Bains in Paris, only to end up spinning records in the rush of New York’s house circuit at The Limelight, Cielo, Pacha and more. After the intensity of the Big Apple, time spent as a DJ in Costa Rica with the sand under his feet was the perfect antidote, indulging his musical obsession in a pressure-free environment.

With his well-travelled soul loaded with experiences from across the globe, his interests have naturally drifted towards production as another means of self-expression. While he had already been immersing himself in the craft of making his own music, pivotal sessions with close friends Hector Moralez and Jef K pushed his technique and vision even further. With the in-demand Jack Is High 12” on Zingiber Audio and releases and remixes for Deeplomatic, Soleil de Nuit and Viva Music already in circulation, Jedsa’s inventive, playful approach to house music continues to infect the contemporary scene.

Whether on the decks or on record, Jedsa’s Caribbean roots, his years of experience and relentless energy fuse to make for a thrilling and refreshingly honest artist unbound by formula and always striving for the feeling between the groove.

GREENBLOOD

BIOGRAPHY

Greenblood is a mesmerising new collaboration between Jedsa Soundorom and DJ Konix.

Fusing deep, rolling grooves with stripped back funk, melancholic echoes, hypnotic soundscapes and charged emotional tension, Green Blood unite mind and body into pure sonic experience.

Cutting his teeth alongside David Guetta of all people during his 1990’s Les Bains residency, Jedsa moved to New York where he became a key player in the Big Apple’s club scene. Forging an increasingly eclectic sound, he was soon in global demand and unleashing a steady stream of high profile releases.

Baptised by frequency on the dancefloors of the early 1990’s, DJ Konix’s sets radiate a magnetic energy. Bringing together deep techno with sunshine house, tropical flourishes, abstract sweeps and a pumping spirit, he has played clubs, festivals and outdoor parties from Ibiza to the Carribbean to Bogota while releasing a string of dancefloor gold under various guises.

Together as Green Blood, they take a journey into the architecture of soul. Heavyweight bass and fat primal beats anchor liquid curves and enveloping atmospherics. Low slung, penetrating and all embracing, this is tomorrow’s deep soul groove.

BIOGRAPHY

A producer with several critically acclaimed local and international releases under his belt, Jimmy Chronic is part of a new generation of South African DJs and producers to whom the words ‘boundaries’ and ‘borders’ do not apply. As a founding member of the Fusion Underground crew, he’s been rocking the upstairs floor at Truth for over three years now. This residency and his distinctive style have played a crucial role in the evolution of minimal, techno and tech house on South Africa’s dancefloors.

James Cells (AKA Jimmy Chronic) is one of the hardest-working DJs in the South African club scene. His reputation and status as a crowd-rocking DJ and kick-ass producer place him at the forefront of South Africa’s underground dance music scene.

Jimmy Chronic has crafted a unique style, which is regarded as synonymous with the minimal and tech house and techno scene in South Africa. This unique style, sound and energy has made him one of the most recognisable and best-loved DJs. Every weekend James conquers parties and clubs around Johannesburg and South Africa’s other major cities—moving people, figuratively and literally, with his faultless mixing and distinctive tune selection.

This set of skills has made him firm favourite with club owners and festival promoters— placing him behind the controls at virtually every note-worthy club in the country, including @115, Carfax, Parliament 52, Natural Groove , Sugar, 96 Degrees, Fiction (CPT) and Tilt (DBN).

System2 was born out of a desire to produce & perform music that meant something to it’s creators.

We are a duo from Manchester & up until now have kept our identities on the down-low after having previously worked our way up the industry ladder under a former alias. In the past, we’ve worked for labels such as Cécille Records, Get Physical Music, PIAS and Nervous amongst others, so we’re no strangers to the house scene.

Growing up in Manchester really cemented our love for house music at an early age, as it’s what we heard when we first started going out clubbing. Manchester is a place synonymous with house music from the Hacienda days, not to mention other places like The Hangar, Holy City Zoo, North, The Old Monk and of course Sankeys.

We started running events around 2004, and within a few years we were residents at Sankeys. The city has always been a great base for our music, and a huge influence on our style.

We started producing back in 2002, doing courses at MIDI school and SSR to widen our knowledge of software and hardware alike. From setting up a basic home studio and hours of trial-and-error, over the course of the last 13 years we’ve been on a massive journey with our music.

We learned on vinyl and still swear by it to this day when we play, although obviously we’ve moved-on with the times to an extent, using USB in the majority of our sets along with 12″.

Our sound isn’t pigeon-holed under any particular genre. Too many sub genres knocking around these days but we’d say house and techno! We love playing a lot of our own music in our sets, and it really does get some of the biggest reactions during our sets. It’s amazing to be getting support on our new work from the likes of Steve Lawler, Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky, Djebali, John Dimas, Richy Ahmed, Jamie Jones, Shaun Reeves & so many more!

Signed up with VIVa MUSiC management & already releases under our belt on VIVa MUSiC, 8Bit, Avotre, Electronique, Politics Of Dancing, Keep It Zen, Lost Records, Material, Underground & our very own System2 to name a few.

2015 looks to be a great year as we become a regular in the Viva Warriors showcases & also filling out or diary a lot more internationally

RAY MONO

BIOGRAPHY

After a decade promoting and being resident at one of Leeds’ finest underground parties, Ray Mono is now stepping out of the shadows. That party, Mono_Cult, was inspired by endless seasons in Ibiza, specifically the afterparty carry ons at DC10 and Cocoon. They gave him a fine understanding of what it takes to work a crowd at many different times in the day, and now armed with that knowledge he is serving up his own unique take on house and techno in booths across Europe.

Preferring rolling, infectious tunes that get under your skin and tease with warm bass and subtle percussion, his tech sound—both as a DJ and a producer—is fresh and on point. It is designed to get you dancing and keep you locked in the groove for hours on end. It’s about building a mood and freaking you out with invention and unexpected twists and turns that all tell a story.

Already he is making waves with EPs on top labels like NOFITSTATE and with a solo EP and tune on a Various Artists EP on BlindVision, and has plenty more planned for the rest of the year. Having pushed everything but music to one side, Ray Mono is now making his mark on the underground scene.

CLAUDE MONNET

BIOGRAPHY

Claude Monnet – DJ, producer, supporter, musical fountain, luminaire.
The above words can be used to describe one of France’s most-revered house and electronic music DJ’s. From his inception into music at the tender young age of 16, where he learnt how to spin wax at landmark clubs such as Le Queen, Le Palace and Les Bains Douches, to currently touring the world from London to Singapore and beyond, Claude’s name has become synonymous with deep grooves and blissful beats – it’s all given an extra special, smooth French touch, keeping Claude’s trademark style firmly in tact.
His sober attitude and uncompromising love of music have allowed him to be recognized as one of the world’s best DJ producers – this recognition propelled him into some of the largest electronic music events such as Ibiza’s “French Revolution” with Daft Punk and Cassius in 1998 and the co- production of a 1998 Eiffel tower show with Jean-Michel Jarre in front of more than one million people (and subsequent Jarre’s « Odyssey Through 02 » album).
Nowadays, when he’s not travelling the world, dazzling the super cool crowd of The Rex in Paris, or caressing the crowds of Pacha and Amnesia in Ibiza, Claude keeps busy as a producer and record label boss. A man with a keen and clear vision, Claude set up labels SSOH and Analog, both focusing on different strands within the vast world of electronic music.
Where Analog concentrates on Claude’s own masterful production skills as he weaves dreamy big room house, SSOH heads further into the underground, championing and supporting artists who are breaking entities and looking for a lift into the scene they so adore. Previous Frenchmen who have felt the golden Claude touch have been Parisian disco mainstay Dimitri From Paris, DJ Gregory, Llorca, Franck Roger, Rocco, David Duriez and Laurent Garnier. They are of course in the best hands when they approach the Godfather of the Parisian dance scene – he did of course discover the ever- popular popstar/producer Martin Solveig. Hell, Claude’s son even starred in the video for Martin’s smash hit single ‘C’est la vie’.
Claude’s music finds its roots heavily entrenched within a number of musical disciplines, each bleeding, melding and growing into one another. Detailed but eclectic, Claude’s music exploits the musical timbres and conventions of house, soul, disco and funk, extracting the best bits and mixing them with Latin and African beats, infused by a warm energy akin to Detroit Techno. Keeping its identity firmly in the underground, whilst simultaneously experimenting with the hooks and pop conventions of more commercial Dance music, the beauty of Claude’s sound is it’s ability to sit comfortably between the underground and over-ground scenes – able to make each strand to come together and share inspiration, whilst he confidently forges his own unique sound and image somewhere between the two. A skill he has become an expert at, with over 20 years in the game, and his first production coming out in 1995, Claude’s integrity and ear for music are second to none.
Creating special events for international DJs such as Not2bad, Claude Monnet’s passion always leads him to groundbreaking projects such as Back to Fundamentals, a mix of electronic music and urban art. 2010 and beyond is certainly no different – with a new initiative about to begin with the B2F project, keep your eyes peeled for a succession of EP releases from the stable, including a popular monthly podcast series, each month taking the listener through a delectable journey through house
music and disco-tinged funk. Old and New, smooth and heavy and always on point, with a huge core fan base and a large, power-sharing focus of interactivity through street art competitions and initiatives, Claude’s B2F podcasts have become a benchmark for quality in the global scene.
And so…with projects planned throughout 2010 and into 2011, two high quality and prolific labels, plus a third label / podcast / creative concept all set to gain even more pace, we invite you to dive in and discover as Claude extends the reach of his warm, thoughtfully crafted beats and uniquely creative approach on modern music. Claude Monnet. 20 years in the making…and still going strong.
