Paranoid Jack

Manny Berenguel, aka Paranoid Jack, first started Djing in 1994. At the time, he was heavily influenced by the New York / Jersey Garage sound and began to play small underground parties in Toronto's warehouse scene with veterans DJ Cube and Alvaro G. His roots were firmly placed in soul, disco and funk which became an important part in shaping his production philosophy later on.

1996-97, the heyday of Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk and the Mongoloids, brought about another evolution in Jack's sound as elements of techno fused with funky filtered house which became the fundamental basis for everything he's done since. After getting his Audio Engineering degree from Trebas Institute in 1998 he began work on his own production material with an extremely small set-up that consisted of an old beat-up Mac, a K2000 rackmount sampler and a pair of home-made studio monitors.

Amazingly, it was out of this humble system that his first record emerged, "Herbz the Word". He gave the demo on to longtime friend MC Flipside (who at the age of 23, was already a respected veteran of Toronto's rave scene), who promptly passed it on to Stickman Records. They signed it and released it in January of 1999, and the rest is history. It went on to become somewhat of a cult-classic, immediately gaining support from heavyweights like DJ Dan, Terry Mullan and Halo, and remains a highly sought after tune to this day.

Jack went on to produce several singles and remixes for the Stickman camp over the next few years, with each one going in a slightly different direction yet maintaining the banging and funky element that became the signature Paranoid Jack sound. This culminated in the release of his first artist album in 2001, "The Last of the Funky Cyborgs". The album spawned three singles (“U”, “Slavedriver” and “Smart Hockey”) which shot up the charts and put Paranoid Jack on the map. The massively respected Yoshitoshi crew picked all three as their #5 tune on their prestigious Top 101 Tunes of 2001 claiming "these were all so good, we couldn't pick just one!"

"Slavedriver" crossed over into the progressive scene with support from Deep Dish, Danny Howells, Quivver, Sasha, John Digweed, Seb Fontaine, Max Graham and just about everybody else. It reached #1 on both the UK's Massive Records Chart and the US Balance Promotion Charts, and was licensed to several highly esteemed CD compilations, including Transport and Ministry. The success of this single led to remixes by local favourite Addy, and the UK's highly respected tech-house guru Jamie Anderson, which attained similar praise. His 2002 release "Dirty Fingernailz" on Four01 Recordings became a worldwide favourite as well, appearing on Steve Lawler's "Lights Out" compilation for Global Underground.

2003 brought another underground smash titled “The Big O” which solidified Paranoid Jack as an established name in the tech-house scene. This led to a slew of remixes on primetime labels like Lee Coombs’ Thrust Recordings, Kingsize Records, Meat Katie’s Lot 49 imprint, Chris Fortier’s Fade Records, and Release Grooves.

Which brings us to 2004, where Paranoid Jack has really come into his own. “Bring Back the Jack” (Thrust Recordings), “No Rest for the Wicked” (Release Grooves), “Acid Fixx” (Slush Recordings) and breaks collaboration “Environmental Product” (Promo Records) with Robb G, “The World Must Change” (Fifth Sun) have all had massive success with a wide range of todays best DJs. Jack felt it was time to take things to the next level by opening up his own label, Fifth Sun Recordings, with local veteran and good friend Tim Patrick. So far the label has been received very well, with all three releases so far hitting Number 1 on the exclusive Balance Pool Chart successively.

All of this attention has led to 5 years of solid DJ appearances all over Canada, the United States, Japan and Europe, where Jack is proving that he can rock the decks as well. His silky smooth mixing style and genre-bending approach to programming have made him a favourite everywhere he goes. Elements of deep house, tech house, progressive, techno and some breaks are woven together with a distinct percussive and funky feel throughout. As a member of the prestigious Balance Record Pool (membership includes 40 of the top DJs and record shops in North America), Jack has access to a wide array of the most upfront tunes as well as a constant flow of unreleased tracks from his friends around the world.

In a few short years, Paranoid Jack has become an established name in the underground scene. He's been licensed to CD's by people as varied as Nigel Richards, Roger Sanchez, George Morel, Eddie Amador, and Steve Lawler. His records are consistently found in the boxes of the world's top DJ's, and (most gratifying to him) his career is being followed by some of the people he respects most. Nowhere was this more evident than when Circulation (one his favourite production groups) lost their records recently, and an e-mail request came in for a copy of everything Jack’s ever done. Paranoid Jack is definitely one to look out for in the future, and we have only seen the beginning of what promises to be a long and bright career.

Greg Gow

Greg Gow's deep, groovy techno sound has evolved progressively since his days of playing house music in the early nineties. As a resident on York University's CHRY 105.5 FM station in Toronto, Greg played alongside much respected house Djs Nick Holder and Mitch Winthrop. While Greg Gow had established himself as a high-profile Dj in the Toronto house music circuit, his sound was rapidly evolving. Influenced by the sounds emerging from Detroit and Germany, by 1996 Greg had traded his smooth house sound for the dark atmospheric grooves of techno music. In 1997 the rave scene was exploding across Toronto, and it quickly became the ideal environment for Greg to display his hard rhythmic tones and technical brilliance. Yet it was a fresh up-start techno production company, called Phryl, where Greg's stature of one of the top techno Dj's in Canada was solidified.


Playing packed ware-houses alongside international superstars such as Cari Lekebusch, Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Gaetano Parisio, Derrick May, Stacey Pullen and James Ruskin. His sets for Phryl parties were regarded as brilliant and often overshadowed the top-billed acts he was playing with. Greg was now a major player in the dance music scene in Toronto, and while the scene was shifting from the warehouses to the more intimate club settings, Greg remained a staple in an ever-changing culture. The now booming club scene became Greg Gow's new adopted home, moving the crowd in the same manner, and seeing him sharing bills alongside such dance music luminaries as Derrick Carter, Aril Brikha, Rolando and Richie Hawtin. While not one to stick to one format of the dance music culture. Greg has also become an accomplished and respected techno producer, releasing tracks on Seismic Detroit, Default, Zen, 2Wars and the legendary German techno label Tresor. Garnering spins from techno heavyweights DJ Rush, Umek, and Mateo Murphy. Greg is also the owner/operator of two international labels Restructured and Kombustion. Both labels feature his own music plus different leading artists from around the world, and have been spotted in the crates of many globe trotting dj's like Steve Rachmad, Umek and Ben Sims.

Anthony Joseph

Growing up in Toronto, Canada, Anthony had always known that music would play a major role in his life. When he discovered his passion and musical talents, he knew his only option was to pursue his goals and aspirations within the world of music. When he was offered an internship by legendary Toronto DJs, Peter and Tyrone, at 83 West & Camouflage Recordings, he got his first real look into the world of DJing/Producing and thus set the foundation for his future endeavours.

From his internship, he moved onto a position at one of the top record stores in Toronto, Traxx Records. This was a turning point in his career. Through his various contacts gained from working within the industry, he went on to DJ at various parties, trying to establish a name for himself. This passion for music and DJing has now spawned into over 10 years of experience as a DJ. Anthony not only loves the music but the affect that it can have on its audience. He says, "I love the powerful effect music can have on people and how it can bring about a positive vibe. As a DJ I love the fact that I can bring a crowd to life with my music."

Anthony has never been one to limit or isolate himself with only one genre of music. This is evident in his eclectic influences that vary from DJ greats Roger Sanchez, Steve Lawler and Danny Tenaglia, to trendsetting bands like Depeche Mode and Radiohead. His style of music cannot be classified as just house, as it is a fusion of different styles of house, from electro, tribal, vocal to hard-house. Even though he doesn't limit himself to one sound, he always puts his individual stamp on his sets. While Anthony still retains the essence of music as the ‘universal language’, he has created a distinct style which differentiates him from the rest; making him creatively original, which is most important in his eyes.



"Without music, life would be a mistake."

"Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling, and instinct, not by rule."

John Acquaviva

Having DJ'd around the world for ages, appearing at thousands of clubs and parties and playing for a cumulative audience in the millions, John Acquaviva is following up a solid 2005 with an even bigger and full-on 2006. John's ambitious touring and production schedule for 2006 will be anchored by the launch of ACQUAHOLIC a 13 week Summer residency at Privilage in Ibiza the world's biggest club.

2005 was Acquaviva's most prolific and successful production year to date. Starting off with Maddox on the Mantra label, Lord of the Bling achieved critical and club acclaim in Italy, and was listed on many year-end best of charts. Following Bling, Zombie produced with rising star Tobias Lutzenkirchen (on Blufin) was one of clubland's biggest tracks and ended the year as one of Beatport's top 5 selling download. Collaborations with Ramon Zenker of Hardfloor fame rounded out the year with the much-heralded A2Z EP.

Having attained a solid reputation for impeccable mixed CD compilations, John released two virtual compilations the past year. Electro-Deluxe Volume 1 (an exclusive digital-only compilation) reached #12 on the German iTunes Store Pop chart, and hit #1 on the Electro chart. Following suit in the spring of 2006 with Volume 2 of the series, this also hit number 1 on the electro charts. This summer, look for the hard goods with the first ACQUAHOLIC mix CD on the super hot and exciting Munich-based Great Stuff Label, to compliment the weekly Privilege, Ibiza residency.

John has built a career around discovering artists and presenting new music to the world, starting with his labels launched in the 90's with Richie Hawtin. He has now again re-launched Definitive Recordings (House for All) to showcase a new and emerging breed of talent from all over the globe. Available digitally and on limited edition vinyl, Definitive Recordings features music by Dj Fadul, Dj Spot, Maxi Madrid, Kike Serrano, Alfonso Padilla, Motes & Fontalvo, with more to come.

John has participated in almost every facet of the music industry over the years. He has played a key role in bridging ideas, technology and people to innovate and revolutionize the way music is sourced and played. John was instrumental and pioneered the role of combining traditional turntable DJing with the digital world by discovering and helping to launch FinalScratchª at the turn of the decade. Seeing the full potential of this vision since the very early days, John also became involved with another group of visionaries to found and launch Beatport.com, which has changed the way DJs and music fans buy and discover the music they love.

Greg Benz & MD


Originating from London, Ontario, Canadian DJ Greg Benz (www.gregbenz.com) began his first residency in 1999 at DV8 nightclub. In early 2000 he joined the RISE! Family, a predominant production company in South-Western Ontario as the resident DJ for their clubs and special events. Greg maintained a busy traveling schedule performing at numerous clubs and events across North America including the infamous Sona (Montréal) and Turbo (Toronto). In a short time Greg managed to quickly climb the ranks and earn himself a spot as one of the most wanted progressive DJ's in Canada.

In the summer of 2001, Greg put the finishing touches on his collection of studio gear. Greg and his studio partner Marco Di Carlo were introduced at a local club where Greg was holding a monthly residency. Their mutual admiration for progressive house, atmospheric breaks and techno, soon led them to the studio where their experimenting and writing inevitably set the foundation of what their sound offers today. In 2003, Benz & MD (www.benz-md.com ) have exploded onto the global dance music scene with seven signed compositions, a handful of remixes and endless praises by some of the world's top producers and DJ's. The duo has a very promising future ahead for them. Their sound can be described as a fresh, sophisticated blend of deep melodies, twisted grooves and tight arrangements that captivates the listener from start to finish.

While growing up in Southern Ontario, music was a dominant force in the duos lives. Hip Hop, house music and compilations by Sasha and Digweed served as a preface to Greg's DJ career. With over 8 years as a DJ now under his belt, Greg has played along side some of the worlds top Dj's such as Max Graham, Richie Hawtin, John Acquaviva, Chris Fortier, Donalde Glaude, Dave Ralph and Mistress Barbara. Greg's knowledge for the mechanics of dance music and his understanding of what it takes to make a crowd move are not only evident in his hometown but also spans the global scene. In April of 2003 John Digweed himself invited Benz to share the airwaves with him on his esteemed radio program on Kiss FM. The international feedback of Greg' s set for the KISS FM show has positioned Greg Benz as the next generation of up and coming DJ's to watch for.

While Marco's tastes led him to a formal musical training background, his teaching and playing music as a teen helped shape his musical vocabulary. Marco dipped his melodic hands into all types of music from classical, jazz and blues, to soul and hard rock. The guitar was his instrument of choice but after being introduced to the lush and intricate sounds of groups like Underworld, Orbital, Depeche Mode and Way Out West; Marco soon switched over to synthesizers, samplers and software-based instruments. Also an accomplished and world wide recognized digital artist, Marco draws on his musical talents as an extension of his artistry. Where by the layering and texturing of sounds can be paralleled to painting with colours and composition.

Benz&MD’s initial demo material received enthusiastic responses from several established record labels and prompted John Digweed to personally call and comment on the quality of each composition. The initial seven demos were all signed and remixes were also commissioned. International support was received from such DJ's as Sasha, John Digweed, Armin Van Buuren, Hybrid, Anthony Pappa, Nick Warren, James Holden, Max Graham, Satoshie Tomeii, John Acquaviva, Jerry Bonham, Matthew Dekay, Mick Burns, Shiloh, Starkid, Subsky, Fred Numpf, Brad Copeland etc. In early 2004 there own record label "Aurium Recordings"(www.auriumrecordings.com) will be up and running. The label is run by Greg, Marco and partner David Strauss and will concentrate on pushing a more melodic progressive sound. Tracks and remix's already signed by Benz & MD themselves, Subsky, Bluehaze, Shiloh, Delikate Imposters with many more to follow...

With more productions, a record label and remixes already in the works for 2006, you can listen for a tougher, deeper polished sound from the duo who will continue pushing the sonic envelope to emotionally charge their listeners on and off the dance floor.

Mute & Laki


2006 has been a year of change for two of Toronto’s veteran electronic music DJs. It has been a year that has brought forth a new duo, Mute & Laki. Often featuring mixing styles that can only be accomplished with four hands on four decks, Mute & Laki have been setting new standards for live shows. It is no surprise that their paths first crossed at the legendary System Soundbar where they both held main room residencies. Having already established themselves previously as top rated individual DJs in both local and global dance music communities, they have come together to create a unique sound and clubbing experience. With well over 15 years of djing experience between them, they have performed at some of world’s most recognized party destinations all over Europe, North and South Americas alongside world’s most renowned artists such as Marco V, Danny Rampling, Donald Glaude, Robbie Rivera, Mr. C, Kenneth Thomas among many others.

2007 has already seen Mute & Laki release their first single as a duo. Aptly name "Mind Games", the single released on Drastic Plastic Records signifies a new era for their joint artistic capabilities through their dedicated hard work in the studio. In addition, with a return to Winter Music Conference in Miami and forthcoming European tour for the summer of 2007, Mute & Laki will cement their reputation as Toronto’s finest.

One thing is for sure; their performance will leave you captivated.

J-E-L-O


He has remixed pop stars and he has performed around the globe. He is known as 'The people's DJ' and one of the fastest beatmatchers live on decks amongst Canadians. He is an Electronic Music kitchen sink that has become a trailblazing influence on the floors, the streets, in people's cars and homes. His live shows are simply dazzling. The DJ known only as Jelo is a leader in North America's electronic music movement and an innovator and ambassador to all things hard and funky in Canada. Since his days supplying the heartbeat of Toronto's dancefloors in Eastern Bloc records to the most obscure clubs in the cozy corners of his Country one thing has become obvious - Experiencing these awe-inspired and interactive sets, regarded legendary by many, is what makes the Jelo experience different than that found with the average DJ.

His straightforward 'take the bull by the horns' approach towards music and performing has kept Jelo amongst the top echelons of DJs in Canada. His style of presentation is unique and bridges the gap between audience and performer. Jelo becomes one with the audience and uses his uncanny abilities to read a floor, any floor, regardless of where he is. A distinct irony is still exisitng regarding Jelo; for a DJ who is 'too hard' or 'too techno' or 'too different' his schedule has him busier, more in demand and more influential than the regular 'jocks' of his city. Jelo brought about this awareness of 'new' music that is often refered to as 'banging house, electro, electro house and techno' to be a fashionable asset. While most succumbed to whatever was popular at the time, Jelo stayed true and still walks his own path. He was the first DJ in the Toronto clubs to usher in Speed Garage, Hard House, Nu Skool sounds and never sticking to one genre. Jelo was constantly mashing things up. An innovator of moving sounds, even Eye Magazine awarded him the prestigious "most innovative DJ' award in their yearly DJ pools. Incorporating the spiciest elements of house, techno, breaks and rock blended with wild mixing abilities gives this DJ the distinction of all-around artist, entertainer, and performer. To Experience a Jelo show is to understand how the medium of Dance-based Electronic music can be a performance. Jelo is a musical performer who can make a full blown arena feel small. Jeff Renton and Ray Starr saw this and quickly grabbed Jelo to represent their label Bugeyed Records as their An'R. In doing so this has allowed many to experience a decidedly different bent of Electronic Dance Music to a growing number of acolytes. Jelo is No stranger to travel and has dazzled thousands in Greece, England, Dubai, Taiwan, Coast to Coast in the USA and every major urban centre in his home country of Canada. There is not one venue that can resist Jelo, big or small, at anytime, anywhere. This is something Jelo continually proves during every performance.

In a time when electronic music was stale in clubs, Jelo was one of the more influential staples in bringing tough, funky, energy charged beats into nightclubs across Canada. He literally Lead the way for other DJs to follow and set an example of what can be done in clubs, commercial or otherwise as a DJ. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jelo records for labels like BugeyedRecords.com, 2Wars.com, Promo, Universal, Geffen, Chris Smith Management, Free Records and Eden Recordings. His powerful diverse musical style has been licensed to DJs Bad Boy Bill, Donald Glaude and John Aquaviva, Josh Da Funky, Club Land Compilations and Summer hits 2006, Yahoo Ringtones and more; Releasing his own authentic mixes such as 'Jelo Live @ System' his latest mix album installment soon joining "Jelo: Live Mix"(Canada's very first LIVE electronic music recording for retail) and "Scarlem Sessions" at major retailers everywhere. In the studio, combined with super producers The Commercial State AKA Jelo 1&2 AKA J.LaMagna and R.Kondrat the newest and best of the Jelo sound has been realized. Jelo has remixed Pop music sensations like Nelly Furtado, Divine Brown and Tamia... Jelo faces the never-ending battle of searching for sounds that together result in musical synergy which keeps his DJ schedule busy and their production in high demand. Promoters everywhere know that when your dancefloor needs rescuing, DJ Jelo is the one to call on.

Always maintaining the underground cool and respect of his peers Jelo refuses to compromise his musical principles. He exudes the authenticity of someone truly involved in a rhythmical love affair with music. Jelo's knowledge of artists and record labels is surpassed only by his natural drive to spread the joy these sounds has brought him. Always learning and always improving, the future for Jelo is guided by an awesome natural intensity, an astonishing musical dedication and a drive to change the world- one beat at a time.

Mute & Laki


2006 has been a year of change for two of Toronto’s veteran electronic music DJs. It has been a year that has brought forth a new duo, Mute & Laki. Often featuring mixing styles that can only be accomplished with four hands on four decks, Mute & Laki have been setting new standards for live shows. It is no surprise that their paths first crossed at the legendary System Soundbar where they both held main room residencies. Having already established themselves previously as top rated individual DJs in both local and global dance music communities, they have come together to create a unique sound and clubbing experience. With well over 15 years of djing experience between them, they have performed at some of world’s most recognized party destinations all over Europe, North and South Americas alongside world’s most renowned artists such as Marco V, Danny Rampling, Donald Glaude, Robbie Rivera, Mr. C, Kenneth Thomas among many others.

2007 has already seen Mute & Laki release their first single as a duo. Aptly name "Mind Games", the single released on Drastic Plastic Records signifies a new era for their joint artistic capabilities through their dedicated hard work in the studio. In addition, with a return to Winter Music Conference in Miami and forthcoming European tour for the summer of 2007, Mute & Laki will cement their reputation as Toronto’s finest.

One thing is for sure; their performance will leave you captivated.

ANAS ATTIA


To say music is in his blood is an understatement. Being born into a musical family, it's no surprise that Anas Attia finds himself behind the decks of some of the hottest clubs in Ontario. Anas, didn't start from behind the decks though, his musical journey started at a young age when he began dabbling on the keyboard and later on the electric bass. There certainly was no doubting his musical aptitude when he took to the stage in numerous festivals, competitions, and concerts, playing everything from rock to pop and jazz. However, the ambitious Anas wasn't satisfied with musical instruments alone so at the age of 13 years old Anas decided to on a new role, "the DJ". >From early 2001 to 2004 Anas worked as a mobile DJ, spinning tracks everywhere from Toronto to the Niagara Peninsula. He moved from private and corporate parties and dances into night clubs. As he grew more and more noticeable in the community, Anas was able to work with and DJ alongside greats such as Hatiras, Mark Oliver, Nathan Barato, Dekoze, Carlo Lio, Joee Cons and Sydney Blu (just to name a few). With his background as a musician, Anas brings a musical sensibility that many of today's "computer DJs" simply lack and on the other end of the stick, the student of the game (not only of the music business but also attending the Brock University) has an excellent knowledge of musical technology and uses it to his advantage. With a "dangerous" collection of tracks from over the years, Anas continues to expand his musical presence and knowledge. With his continual growth, Anas has launched his Dirty House CDs. A compilation of some of the deepest bass lines with the dirtiest sounding tracks, Dirty House One and Dirty House Two were huge successes as fans awaited the release of Dirty House Three. DH3 was finally released at an energy fused event in Footwork Nightclub in Toronto with the aid of DJ Sydney Blu, Canada's leading Female DJ and The Roaches (Nathan Barato and Carlo Lio). Anas continues to DJ around Canada as his "true character" continues to shine. In March 2006 he pushed the envelope and demonstrated his strength of character by DJing a 24-hour dance event at the University of Toronto without rest. Most recently, Anas was featured in the Canada Cancer Society's Relay For Life. An overnight charity fundraiser for cancer research. "I love doing events like Relay and Harmony (http://www.harmony.ca). There's a certain high you get from knowing that you're not only making the people on the dance floor happy, but that your work will touch thousands of others at the same time" His musical style "bold" and "risky", yes melodic and catchy. His performances, like his attitude, are energetic and exciting, and the crowds feed off his electricity. He is not simply a DJ with years of experience and a drive for music, he's a music enthusiast. When you break down the drive, the desire, the journey... Anas possesses the same element the music does: passion.

James Sadoway

Producing for the last nine years, James Sadoway has made his music his life. Although many DJ's have an alias, James made the personal decision to continue his music career using his own name. His first major release was the Sarah McLachlan remix: The First Noel. Check it out at www.beatport.com

Strong bass lines and stand-apart female vocals are Sadoway's signature. Recently graduated from Pacific Audio Visual Institute for Audio Engineering and Recording/Production, James Sadoway continues to expand and fine-tune his techniques. New Digital meets Old Analog in an entirely new way. A wide range of music tastes make way for remastered electronic, dance floor, trance, break beats, and down tempo.

He'll never forget the first time he heard electronic. His older sister went through a phase listening to it when he was much younger. he was captivated the first time his ears heard it. It wasn't too shortly after that he begged my mother to purchase a computer program. Then he was in a whole new world.

Eventually he started creating his own loops. This escalated to his tracks being more original and getting played in clubs by the time he was 18. This process was excellent for him; he was able to figure out what people liked through trail and error. This process of learning was fantastic, but he needed more. That was when he decided to go to school for production.

Attending school in Vancouver allowed him to stand out as he was the only student that did electronica. It also exposed him to new ways of producing. He experimented for the first time with incorporating real instruments into his music. As well as using other artists talents in his songs.

Currently, he is collaborating with other artists to expand his fan base. A hip-hop artist, has lent his vocals to a few of Sadoway's more mainstream compositions. This is still work in progress. Another female artist, who is a folk singer, had her songs remixed by Sadoway. They also have upcoming projects where they will be working on some 80's styled material. There has been some word out there that Sadoway could also be featured on a big upcoming album, but not much else can be mentioned on that matter.

Sadoway has no tours scheduled at the moment as he is dedicating his time to creating music and networking. He is looking for a label and may be putting more tracks on www.junodownload.com with his private label.

mParadis

Glam-rocker in the 90's, it's through Mister Bungle's music that Martin discovered machine generated sounds. He will then embark on a 10 year journey through many styles of music, taking him from Faster Pussycat to Orbital, to Michael Mayer, to progressive house. As the new millennium arrives, he definitely puts aside his LesPaul guitar and Marshall amp and works exclusively with machines to produce dance floor electronic music. He first explores the minimal and techno scenes, but his curiosity brings him to gain interest in all electronic genres (idm, drum n bass, gabber, goa and electro) in order to truly understand their subtle production differences.

Falling upon some memorable sets by some djs and craving low frequencies, Martin turns to progressive techno/house where he finds the round and enveloping sounds he likes, keeping with his techno and minimal influences with a touch of melody. As a producer, Martin constantly works on the line between techno and progressive house. As a dj, he explores some genres (progressive house, house, techno and trance), however, his sets always have a progressive feel and are driven by rolling and grooving bass lines. In 2005, Martin and long time friend Steeve Montmigny (aka Sternreise) decide to truly take part in the local and international electronic music circle. Today, Öften Grüven recordings is now internationally distributed and is a member of the Critical Rhythm UK family, headed by Keith McDonnell, also director and owner of Baroque records.
