Comprised of three lads from Northern Ireland, the Japanese Popstars have taken their coruscating live show to all corners of the globe, and still found time to make the record of their lives with their second album, Controlling Your Allegiance. The band has made a name for themselves as sought after remixers, having notched up their own inimitable re-rubs for luminaries such as Beyonce, Depeche Mode, Gorillaz and Kylie Minogue, and at major market dates including Ultra Music Festival in Miami and Electric Daisy Carnival in LA. Featuring the storming, twisted, electro barrage ‘Let Go,’ the icy single ‘Joshua’ featuring Tom Smith (Editors) as well as collaborations with Lisa Hannigan (Damien Rice), Robert Smith (The Cure) and more, Controlling Your Allegiance is their true leap forward.
Benny Benassi rose to worldwide fame with the 2002 release of his enormous chart-topping hit single ‘Satisfaction.’ It was with that tune that he initiated a new genre of music dubbed as Electro, which earned him the crown, Godfather of Electro. The demand for Benassi as a DJ is incredible and he headlines major festivals and venues around the world, including performances before 250,000 people in Miami, a residency at Pacha – NYC, and an upcoming US tour.
The new artist album from the Grammy award-winning producer & DJ, Electroman maintains the Benassi signature sound. The album features the hit single ‘Spaceship’ which adds a pop tinge and is laced with sultry vocals from globally renowned singer, Kelis. Also collaborating on the single are Black Eyed Peas’ member, apl.de.ap and producer Jean-Baptiste, both of whom contribute incredible rhymes and vocal styling to the track. Furthermore, the album features the huge hit ‘Beautiful People,’ which is a collaboration with Chris Brown, ‘Cinema,’ and ‘House Music.’
Hot on the heels of his Impermanence artist album, the French techno figurehead presents one of the most diverse and meticulous sets to hit the fabric series to date. Jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sun Ra and Tony Allen drift almost imperceptibly into and out of house and techno from the likes of Carl Craig, Cottam, and of course Agoria himself. Layers and snippets of each track are interwoven throughout the duration, making fabric 57 as much a seamless tapestry of sound as it is a DJ mix.
