Ask any well-known DJ, artist or producer the secret of their success and chances are that hard work will be pretty high up their list of essentials. Anyone who knows Anna Wall will know that this is one of the many characteristics that defines her, and now, after years of working her way up the underground ranks, it looks as if years of graft are starting to pay dividends.
Since first getting to grips with decks at the age of 19, Anna has developed a reputation and keen following in her native London and university town of Newcastle. Playing classic and contemporary house and US garage and with a strong affinity with the roots of both, Anna’s broad knowledge of the history of dance music sets her apart from the hundreds of unimaginative, chart-championing DJs that plague the scene.
Anna’s international break came in 2011 when she was recruited as resident DJ for Croatia’s Yacht Week, playing alongside CR2′s Dan Castro for an epic 7 days 7 nights. Since then, she has been booked alongside some of the world’s most respected DJ talents, with the last few years seeing Anna DJ in the impressive company of MK, Robert Owens, Norman Jay, Inland Knights, Soul Clap, Adam Shelton and Jordan Peak.
Anna finest moment to date came back in March, when she played for Mixmag’s DJ Lab live stream at their penthouse in Miami alongside techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson and Miami’s own Treasure Fingers; an incredible achievement in its own right and one about which she is extremely proud.
She spent her season this summer in Ibiza, playing clubs such as the world famous Space Ibiza for Future Disco alongside Carl Cox’s The Revolution Unites every Tuesday, plus trips back to her Hometown to play Warehouse LDN, and Watergate in Berlin to name a few. Watch this space…

His debut at rhythmatic was back in February, and it was one of the highlights of 2013. We are super excited to have him back at the most intimate surrounding in the heart of Shoreditch where he will be playing alongside fellow A Votre artist; Anna Wall. By now might know who we are talking about… of course we are talking about Sante. Not only do we have the pleasure to have him as our headlining guest, but we are proud to announce that he will be doing an exclusive 4 hours set, just for us and this rhythmatic Christmas special.

The 19th October was a very special date for Rhythmatic, as they celebrated their 6th anniversary at the Sidings warehouse with Moritz von Oswald and Petre Inspirescu. Standing on their own, these names are already sure to attract the devoted techno fans but combine them, and you have the perfect cocktail to be assured one hell of a night. Considering the fact that this party coincided with the fabric 14th anniversary – with its usual lineup consisting of the ever present Villalobos, and other big names such as Zip, Marcel Dettman, and Sonja Moonear, the crowd in London sure had the luxury of choice. Many chose to do both consecutively, but for team KweekWeek, Rhythmatic was more than enough, as the quality of music and more intimate crowd in the only open room at Sidings was more to our taste than the chaotic maze that is fabric.
By the time we got here, the Lazarides B2B Hamilton was drawing to its end, and had done a great job of warming the crowd. The room was warm and full of friendly faces, and the deep bass line resonated on the sound system, making our heart throb with every beat. We easily made our way to the front of the room, which was a nice change from the usual elbow battle we have to play to get even remotely close to the turntables. Just in time to see Moritz appear at the set, stoic expression on his face and records in hand, ready to give us what we had been waiting for since many weeks. And that he did. The music enveloped the room, beating rhythmically in a carefully studied manner, as could be expected from this German DJ, but varying into trippy and more eerie notes sometimes, which gave us some respite from all that dancing around.
The end of his set at 3am was met by a standing ovation, as certain people shouted for one more track, but the applause redoubled as Petre made his appearance. Even though it was the first time we saw him play, we’d had a good taste of what he’s capable of, from records such as Swan Lake or Gradina Onirica so we knew what to expect. However he exceeded all expectations, taking the turntables by storm with some heavy beats. If any raver in the room was feeling tired by that time, Petre’s set was like a surge in energy, giving everyone a boost to keep on dancing until 6. His strong Romanian groove, characteristic of the [a:rpia:r] collective was right on the spot and echoed throughout the night, even after dawn crept up to remind us of the world that still existed outside this cocoon of music.
Once again, Rhythmatic has not failed to impress with their impeccable organization, outstanding lineup and quality of the night as a whole. 6 years and going strong, these guys are sure to be here for a while to come. Hats off to Kiri, Kostas and the team for pulling it off once again, and if you still haven’t heard of Rhythmatic by now, check out their next party, the Christmas Special on 30th Nov with Martinez, Wesley Razzy and Mateo. It promises to be a big one as well, we would hate for you to miss it.

With a new album release on the horizon, planned for early spring 2014, Martinez is going from strength to strength and have become one of the hot new talent on the Cocoon Artist Booking roster, joining musical hero Sven Väth for just a little over year, and by doing so it was a given that Maritnez would be on the Cocoon stage at We Are FSTVL earlier this year in Essex, alongside Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth and Sascha Dive. The summer held several new ventures for Martinez alongside recent and further remix work, including remixes of: Dale Howard, Chard Andrews, Pier Bucci, Leon, Minilogue. Martinez also made noteworthy gigs at several Cocoon at Amnesia, Ibiza, events, and other hot spot all over Europe during ’12 / ‘13.
His style can’t be pigeonholed, and his latest releases and launch of his third own managed label, Concelead Sounds, again confirms that Martinez like to break the barriers when it comes to developing new techniques, and he has put his focus on the “ after hour sounds” and the more experimental styles emerging on the underground scene. And to make things a bit more interesting he will also tease you with at least one hidden track on each release.
rhythmatic had the pleasure to catch up this familiar face as he also happens to be one of our star guests coming up for the winter event season we just had to find out what he is up to next. The Swedish born Martinez will be headlining the rhythmatic Christmas Special again on the 30th of November ’13 – after being familiar with the rhythmatic decks from the Fathers and Sons Showcase previously. With his latest release (Martinez – Abyss EP on Lomidhigh Organic) on repeat in our headphones we could not be more excited to welcome back such a talent.
You grew up in Sweden, a country known as “landetlagom” (the average country) where the underground house music and techno have just started emerging on the scene in recent years, was it hard to find ground to develop a musical career in that genera when it wasn’t very popular in the clubs?
Well to be honest I must say that underground House Music and Techno has always been quite well established in Sweden if you knew where to look, at least for as long as I remember and from the times when I started to get into that kind of music, which was the mid 90′s. In Helsingborg, which is the city where I grew up, there was a lot of DJs and cool underground party’s. Everything from Raves with Trance Music to underground Deep House parties. There was this great event/DJ collective called Groove Society that threw amazing, kind of private, very underground and mystic party’s. They inspired me a lot as they played exactly that kind of mix of Deep House, Chicago and Detroit Techno I liked. So it was actually not that hard to find the ground to develop at least interest and inspiration there.
Of course it was never “main stream music”, so you had to look for it to find it, but as any curious young music lover you usually find what you’re looking for sooner or later.
You are currently settled is Copenhagen, Denmark, is there a particular reason for you deciding to live there?
I moved to Copenhagen after I finished school, around the age of 18 or 19 years old. Copenhagen was always the “Capitol” city for me as I am from the south of Sweden and it was so much closer than Stockholm. We used to go often to Copenhagen to shop records and listen to international DJs (and the good local once too) that played at the clubs there. It was kind of a natural move for me as I was looking to go to a bigger metropolis city at that time. Helsingborg had a great small scene, but it was very small indeed, so I wanted to go to Copenhagen for more inspiration and get more possibilities to live within a more pulsating scene.
What places do you recommend to visit in Copenhagen, from a musical point of view, any good record shops or small unknown clubs or bars?
From a musical point of view I’d say Culture Box is the best and most proper underground club to visit if you’re into Techno and House Music.
There is also a nice little Bar (or Mini-Club) called Harvey’s that just recently open which is a really nice spot, they also play more Nu-Disco stuff as well as House Music.
For record shopping I’d suggest to check out, Dorma 21, which is the newly opened record shop on Nørrebro that sells mainly Techno, House and Electronic Music. You can also go to Sound Station for second hand record shopping, they have everything and I mean everything on vinyl.
Do you have any plans to re-locate in the future, London maybe?
Not really no… I like London a lot, and of course the idea of living there (as well as other places in the world) the thought has crossed my mind from time to time, but I am very well off in Copenhagen for now.
What do you think of the electronic music scene in London, compared to other parts of Europe, which places do you think has the hottest musical development?
The London scene is very good, they have a wide range of electronic music events and clubs. The crowd in London is very multi-cultural so you have lots of input from everywhere in the world into the scene. I guess somehow that is how it differs from some other European city’s that might not be as multi-cultural, but in the end its hard to say as it all comes down to each particular event and which promoter is behind that and its more about the philosophy of that than the city. You find good and bad sides of the scene everywhere.
What’s your favourite equipment to work with and sound system to play on, do you think sound is important, or THE MOST important thing in a party?
I think the sound system is one of the most important things at a party. At least for the kind of party’s that I enjoy playing at where the music is the focal point. Though for sure lots of other components and factors are important too, to make it an overall impressive experience. But, with a bad sound system it all kind of falls apart and doesn’t make any sense, no matter how impressive lights and visuals etc. you may have. I like sound systems that sound warm, round and pay attention to details in frequencies. To have a proper balance of bass, mids and highs are very important. Systems like Martin Audio, L’Acoustic or Meyer usually sounds great!
You have co-produced, and sole produced some great tracks over the last years, but if you had to choose one; playing or producing – what would it be, and why?
It’s impossible to choose one for me, because it’s all connected. Each thing inspires the other, so without DJ’ing would not get the same inspiration to produce, as well as without producing I wouldn’t have the same understanding of the musical details and feeling for DJ’ing. So it goes hand in hand for me.
Can you give any tips, tricks or advice, and software recommendations for new producers out there?
Stay focused on the music, and do it for the right reasons! It’s about having fun, being creative and make something unique that is personal, that all I can say.
Which is the latest track / record you bought, and is there a particular producer that has caught your eye recently?
The last record I bought was by Ion Ludwig on his Gold Series label. Really dope release, check it out. Another personal favourite of mine right now, is this guy from Copenhagen called: S.A.M, he makes incredible music and a very humble cool personal as well.
There are also these two producers from London that release on their label called: SYLPHE. It’s really makes incredible music which I think people should check out. Both S.A.M and Sylphe has a very unique and fresh sound which is so inspiring to hear these days. You can also check out Sylphe on my label Concealed Sounds around December as they just made a remix for me on there.
You have played rhythmatic parties in the past, anything in particular you remember from those gigs?
It’s just always great fun with those guys!
Any plans you can let us in on, next big gigs or tours, any more plans for playing in the UK after the rhythmatic event?
I just came back from a very good two week tour in the US. Playing a bunch of Cocoon Events around Europe this winter, amongst them in Sofia in Bulgaria with Sven Väth and Alejandro Mosso, which should be great! And then a string of new stuff coming out on my own label Concealed Sounds over the next 3-4 month, so keep an eye on that.

What a year has it been for Rhythmatic, we can’t believe we are already fast approaching the end of 2013. It has certainly been a year of travelling for us; our 5th Anniversary tour took us to places like Morocco, Monaco, Paris, St Tropez, Sonar, Amsterdam, Greece, and Stuttgart, plus many more locations in and around London.
rhythmatic will be turning in Nov at a new space, but this time we are going intimate. The space is a new basement 200 capacity just of Kingsland road.
For this event we will be bringing back an artist that over the years has impressed us with his style and music ethos, Martinez! Since his move to Cocoon, he has taken over the club land with his pumping techno house sets, from Festival and Cocoon parties at Amnesia, Used & Abused to Sonar, he has played all over the world. His return to Rhythmatic after his last appearance as part of the Fathers and Sons Showcase impressed so much that we thought he would be the perfect artist to close our 2013 season.

Rhythmatic are celebrating their sixth brithday party in true warehouse style.
Time flies when you’re having fun. So when the organisers of Rhythmatic first opened their doors to the public in 2008, I’m sure they would be gobsmacked to know that six years later, they would be preparing for their biggest night yet to celebrate their sixth anniversary. On 19th October, East London will once again alight with the sounds of techno and house music, for what should be a high-fuelled thriller of a night.
It’s fitting then that the line-up lives up to the excitement of the night. The first headliner, making his Rhythmatic debut performance, is multi-instrumentalist Moritz von Oswald from Berlin, boasting some of the most influential and innovative techno music around. The second headliner probably feels like more of a local. Petre Inspirescu will be getting behind the decks once more to showcase the grooviest beats of deep house, for what promises to be an electrifying night.
As this will be the only chance to see these two perform in London this year, October’s Rhythmatic is an unmissable opportunity to join in the birthday festivities. Happy birthday Rhythmatic!

Review by Data Transmission
rhythmatic turn six! When this project started it is doubtful they would have ever dreamt that after 6 years they would still be here, preparing for their biggest celebration since the start of rhythmatic. What a journey it has been, from EGG to putting on some of the most talked about parties London has witnessed…
On the 19th October, They will be putting together our biggest event to date, bringing together, for the first time in the capital, two very unique artists from the House & Techno scene, to celebrate rhythmatic’s 6th Anniversary.Their 1st headliner will make his first appearance for rhythmatic, Moritz von Oswald. Half of both Basic Channeland Maurizio, he has become one of the most influential producers of techno music in the 1990s, will be bringing his rhythms and sounds from Berlin. Whilst their 2nd headliner is Petre Inspirescu who is already part of the long list of great artists that have appeared at rhythmatic; He has long been a pivotal figure alongside his frequent accomplices Rhadoo and Raresh. From the very beginning Petre has been strongly affected by deep house tunes and the multitude variety of grooves – not only in electronic music. His DJ sets are as sonically baffling as they are irresistibly groovy; as a producer, his tracks are as unhinged as they are methodical. He equally owns the label (a:rpia:r), with Rhadoo and Raresh.This will be the ONLY warehouse appearance for both artists in London this year. So why not join them in this extra special day and toast a few drinks whilst listening to good music to celebrate a good 6 years, so be part of this amazing journey get your tickets now
