Burning Man send off party, costumes encouraged
Berlin native, Nico Stojan, has been all across the planet taking people on musical journeys since the early nineties. He developed a deep love for Jazz & Hip Hop before the vibrant growth of the famous Berlin electronic nightlife.
Once the Berlin scene took flight, Nico was expressing himself with euphoric sets as a resident at Bar25. It didn’t stop there.
Since then his sound has been welcomed by seas of desert dancers, festivals of warm hearts & clubs of ecstatic ravers.
Nico’s productions find perfect harmony between analog & digital sounds, irresistible grooves accompanied by entrancing melodies.
As the co-founder of Ouïe records, together with Acid Pauli, Nico is planning to produce more showcases and present his vision of modern dance music around the globe.
In the north of Mother Africa, desert rhythm meets metropolis roar, and Amine K is Morocco’s ambassador to the music.
Amine’s progressive sounds border on the deep. Sweaty faces tell a moving story of the dance entranced. “It’s poetry. It’s a story wa..
Born with a heart for the beat, Amine Akesbi started to DJ as early as 14 with “an old school mixer” and a double cassette deck. Meanwhile Amine’s dedication to the electronic music community has continued to be diverse beyond his own performances. Moroko Loko, a concept party for real people looking to really dance, launched in 2009 to support the dying underground music culture in Morocco.
Since then the exploding demand has helped the brand boom and host international guests like Nick Warren, Matthias Meyer, Martin Eyerer, Alex Niggemann, Satoshi Tomiie, Shaun Reeves, etc.
The party brand has even gone global, touring in Toronto, Montreal, Paris, Borocay, Tokyo, Toulouse, Montpelier, Tunis, Bordeaux… An invitation to play at 2012’s Techno Parade in Paris, amassed in a performance for over 300,000 fans.
Amine K’s big radio hit ‘Dar Gnawa’ alludes to his ethnic Morrocan roots, but he insists on remaining open as an artist with music influences ranging from Danny Tenaglia, to Deep Dish, Loco Dice, Nick Warren, and even BBKing. His own performances now include live composition during DJ sets and ethnic music works to supplement the beat structures. Amine’s projection on a dance floor is of immediacy, working in the story of the now, a journey with no past or future, but a focus, as he says, on the present.
Recently signing with Systematic Recordings and Beat It Music, Amine will continue to split his focus between performance and production value alike.
2015 will be an amazing year for Amine: Marrakech will find itself having a new professional studio hub, synthesized by the seasoned hands of the musician Amine K himself. Also tours across the globe are already getting set up and Amine will finally release on the labels he always dreamt of.
