  • INTERVIEW OF KIRI AND KOSTAS, THE GUYS BEHIND RHYTHMATIC

    twins_500_375

    Q. You guys created Rhythmatic, tell us how and when did it all start.

    A. Hello and thank you for giving us the opportunity to chat to you. We always were passionate about clubbing, music and events! Before we decided to start Rhythmatic we had already been hosting events in Greece & Newcastle under a different name but never thought we would be in London. Considering it being one of the best underground parties to its day, you really don’t get many nights that make it past 2-3 years, never mind 7.

    Rhythmatic started 6 years ago when we came back from Miami, we had a great time & we thought we should give it one more go and see where it will go, but never thought we would get to this point.
    Q. Rhythmatic has been going on for a while, has anything changed? The crowd? The music?
    A. Rhythmatic has been one of the truly underground nights, bringing some of the memorable warehouse showcases. The time has passed so quickly and during these years the music we provide has been built from years and years of experience. This is why Rhythmatic has been recognised as one who has and continues to educate new and old crowds. Despite all the rapid changes in the club industry, Rhythmatic music has never failed to produce something unique. The crowd does change and especially if you have been running a project for that long, but we always find a new audience to showcase our music and parties to.
    Q. How do u manage to keep your parties going for so many years ?
    A. Wellbeing, passion and keeping ahead of the pack I guess, but times have changed a lot and yes it was a lot easier back in the day. When we started there were hardly any proper warehouse parties, maybe 2-4 very well distinguished brands, but hardly any new nights. When we stepped back in the Clubbing scene after 4 years back in 2010, it was such high risk because for a new night it was difficult but we knew what we wanted and we brought some of the most talked about parties in 2010, 2011, 2012 with the likes of Marco Carola, Davide Squillace, Mattathias Tanzmann, Onur Ozer, a:rpia:r, Premiesku and so many more.
    My brother and I are always looking to get the best out of it and so we decided to step up the game and start hosting some of today’s amazing showcases. The last two years things have changed a lot from the crowd, venues, artists and we do feel that the London scene is a lot more saturated and I don’t see as much passion and hype about nights. It’s all about a quick fix for a lot of promoters, make it quick and go. A lot of promoters who came after us have changed and people think that if you have money you can do anything. This attitude has a serious impact even to established promoters to cope with high prices, also but management of warehouse space which have result the authority and the police to be on the case.
    Q. If you could choose one thing to keep and one thing to change in London’s music scene, what would they be?
    A. People’s perceptions and mentality, I really believe there is no unity where everyone can trust and believe and work for one the same reason, I wish things were more transparent. We have seen a lot of things from 7 years in this industry and always wonder why people can’t be simple and enjoy something unique London has to offer. I hear all the time about community, people are in this together, but I don’t see this, and that’s why you see nights come and go so easily and DJs. I really feel London has lost a bit of the magic it had, maybe we are getting old maybe we are out of touch, but our project has been running for 7 years now and that says that a lot.
    Q. Our guest is Damian Oh, who has been a regular DJ at your parties, what’s so special about him ?
    A. Damian Oh, is a great friend & a great DJ, he is an artist that let’s his music speak before anything else, having him for a first time at our main Rhythmatic party is an honour and we really can’t wait to hear what he has in store on the 6th of Septemer.
    Q. What can we expect from Rhythmatic in 2014-2015?
    A. Only time will tell…
    Q. You guys just started the vinyl club , can you tell us more about it ?
    A. Well we have always been fascinated in bringing unique concepts and projects in London, and we have to say the idea of creating the vinyl club has really paid off our time and dedication over the last 7 months.
    The concept is to invite new and undiscovered talent to showcase their music, exchange records, guide them on technical skills and invite well known DJ’s to come and show others how to play and learn from them the art of mixing. There are also talks and presentations from different areas within the music industry, from how to put your music out there, start a label, production tips, marketing yourself plus many more.
    This will be a great opportunity to create a community of similar minded DJs, artists, producers and generally music lovers, and to provide a meeting point to help people network with other musicians and companies which are sometimes hard to get in contact with or get the exposure out there.
    Rhythmatic’s next party is on the 6th of September. More info below:

  • MARA TRAX TALK

    rhythmatic6sept_zpsd3d58b4f

    Mara Trax are a project combining the talents of Maayan Nidam (aka Miss Fitz) and Vera Heindel with a passion for old school house and a very similar attitude towards making music.

    Ahead of their appearance at Rhythmatic’s By Day By Night, we asked the duo a selection of the finest vintage Ransom Note questions;

    WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU?

    Vera: I’m Vera, a female human being on the planet earth.
    M: Maayan, a monkey.

    IF YOU COULD ONLY PLAY IN ONE CITY FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS WHERE WOULD YOU BE? AND WHY?

    Vera: I’d be in Berlin. Because of the variety of music club, record stores, like-minded people and artists that inspire me musically and that keep the scene interesting.
    Maayan: Berlin, cause it’s home and cause vera is there.
    Vera: Oooh! That’s my girl!

     

     

    YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE A REAL BOND WITH MUSIC TASTE, AND ARE PRETTY RELAXED WITH GENRES. DO YOU EVER DISAGREE ABOUT WHAT VIBE TO GO FOR BEFORE A SET?

    Vera: Sure, it happens, that we have different concepts or temporary affections. But if we haven’t played together in a longer time,
    we usually talk a bit before the gig discuss the situation or place and see if we find a common factor.
    It can be very nice though when we are able to connect the different styles and create a more colorful vibe.

    IS IT DIFFICULT BALANCING MARA TRAX WITH BOTH YOUR SOLO CAREERS?

    Vera: Yes, our separate DJ schedules make it difficult but also our private life and other musical projects.  Maayan has been very busy lately with her band “The Waves & Us”
    we haven’t been making music together in pretty long time, but we miss it and plan on going back to the studio very soon.

    WHAT’S THE LAST THING YOU HEARD THAT MADE YOU STOP WHAT YOU WERE DOING COMPLETELY?

    Maayan: I’ve been obsessed with a song from Soul Clap called I Want Your Love.
    Also one BEAK album, I was sitting in a bar on my own and I couldn’t leave until the album was done. It reminded me a lot of what we do with The Waves & Us.

    WHAT WAS THE HAPPIEST MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE?

    Vera: I think for Mara Trax it was a happy moment when we were signed for Perlon. And of course the moment we met.

     

     

     

    WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?

    Vera: Well, let me try to say it like this: there are 4 elements. water, fire, wind and earth. And there is love. And music.

    WHAT WAS THE FIRST ELECTRONIC RECORD YOU EVER HEARD? HOW DID IT MAKE YOU FEEL?

    Maayan: The Dark Side Of The Moon from Pink Floyd. It’s not dance music but when recorded in the early 70′s the band used advance technology like tape loops and analog synthesizers.
    I heard it as a kid on my dad’s stereo, sometimes with big headphones around my tiny head. I remember it was confusing and attractive at the same time.

    WHICH OF YOU IS THE MORE ORGANISED ONE?

    Vera: What do you think? Isn’t it obvious? I’m german.
    M: next to me, anyone would be more organized!
    V: I think Maayan was never actually looking for a music partner, she just needed someone to manage her stuff.

    WOULD YOU SAY YOUR TASTES HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS YOU’VE BEEN IN PARTNERSHIP? HOW HAVE YOU AFFECTED EACH OTHER?

    V: We always had different tastes. That’s what makes it interesting, especially when it comes to music production.
    I wouldn’t say tastes change, but more the affection towards a certain sound at a certain time is changing.
    M: I think it’s a seasonal thing. It comes in waves of preferred music that move and change and ,of course ,repeats.

    IF YOUR SOUND WAS A VISUAL THING, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?

    M: Like the night sky.
    V: No, more like something weird looking with really big balls.

    WHAT WOULD BE YOUR RANSOM NOTE?

    M: If I would kidnap Vera I’d write: “Move all her records to my living-room or the stupid-bitch gets it!”
    V: How would I be able to kidnap Maayan? She’s always bossing me around, tell’s me what to do, let’s me run her errands. I got no time for this shit.”

    WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?

    Vera: My bed.
    M: Her bed.

    ARE YOU A KICK DRUM, HI HAT OR A SNARE? AND WHY?

    Vera: I believe we are both bass lines.

    WHAT ARE YOU OBSESSED WITH AT THE MOMENT?

    Vera: Collecting mushrooms in the forest.

    WHAT’S YOUR ANSWER TO EVERYTHING?

    Vera: Love.
    M: Water.

    HOW WOULD YOU SUM UP THE OTHER IN 3 WORDS?

    Vera: Maayan is loyal, funny and bossy
    M: vera is deep, romantic and loves to eat.

     

    FIRST AND LAST RECORD BOUGHT?

    Vera: first: Madonna – true blue, last: Woody McBride aka DJ ESP – Pscenario

    FINALLY, BIG QUESTION: ZAPP OR ZAPPA?

    Vera: hmmm….. Zip?

  • rhythmatic by day, by night, by morning w/ Margaret Dygas, Mara Trax, Tobias. Live & Barac 6 Sept at Village Underground

    rhythmatic6sept_zpsd3d58b4f

    rhythmatic by day / by night / by morning

    w/

          Margaret Dygas, Mara Trax (Vera & Maayan Nidam), Tobias. Live & Barac

    At 

    Village Underground

     6 Sept 2014 // 24 hours

    rhythmatic has taken a short break after 6 years of putting some of talked about and exciting events, and will be back after the summer, launching a series of very special events that are not to be missed.

    6 Sept will see a 24-hour party, rhythmatic stays true to its music ethos and is putting together one exciting line up for 24 hours of shenanigans…

    After a long absence Mara Trax (Vera & Maayan Nidam) return to London for their rhythmatic debut. Maayan Nidam is no stranger, having appeared alongside San Proper in March last year at one of our best intimate parties/afters, so we are thrilled to have her back with partner in crime Vera. The ladies will be playing a 4h set – not to be missed!

     

     

    Since starting his solo project after Noi Doi, Barac has been creating quite a stir on the underground scene with his live & DJ set, and we can’t wait for his debut on the 6 Sept.

    Our main headliner is a Perlon and Panorama Bar affiliate. Margaret Dygas (3h set) will make her first appearance at Rhythmatic with fellow PB artist Tobias. Live, performing live. In light of the two artists’ recent E.P, we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.

    We will not announce which artists will play at which part of the event. It is all about musically minded people coming together for the music………

     

    Margaret Dygas (Perlon) 3 hrs

     

     

    Life as Margaret Dygas has experienced it has had more than it’s fair share of unusual twists and turns. With a sound born in New York, ripened in London and refined in Berlin, Margaret Dygas is an artist whose sound possesses a true international resonance.

    Following her move to Berlin in 2007, Margaret started producing and writing her own music, and has since then released EP’s and full-length albums on Contexterrior, Power ShovelAudio, Perlon and Non Standard Productions.

     

     

     

    Mara Trax (Perlon, Oslo) 4 hrs

    (Maayan Nidam & Vera)

     

     

    Mara Trax is a project of Maayan Nidam (aka Miss Fitz) and Vera Heindel. Maayan and Vera have only been

    working together for a short time, but the music they love to play is the sound of the time. Their passion for raw, old school house grooves built the foundation for collaborative productions and performances.

    Mixing dance music’s penchant for deepness with the old school tracks that they are consciously evoking, the team is leading a new deep movement especially springing up around the cities of Frankfurt and Mannheim.

     

     

    Tobias. live (Ostgut Ton)

     

     

    There is no need to divide his works into avant-garde or club contexts, because he effortlessly merges his whole spectrum into a performance that is all him, transforming the complex textures and gripping rhythms that make his music so fascinating into experiences where listening and dancing are one, and a whole life of music leads to ever new innovations. As it happens. On the spot. Tobias Freund may be non-standard, but he sure set many.

    Tobias (Live) @Kutaisi Electronic Music Festival from Stare At Dj on Vimeo.

     

    Barac (Sunrise)

     

     

    Getting more and more known for his real name, Barac, half of the NoiDoi crew d Dedicated to good vibe and harmony, this artist warms up our souls and brings a smile on. Decided in 2012 to extend his solo works.

    Born with a soft spot for music, he managed to gather years of musical experience, which can be felt and tasted in his productions just like a fresh opened bottle of an old wine.

  • rhythmatic Christmas Special Part 1 at Ground 281 review by Kweekweek

    rhyth_30112013

    This weekend saw the first part of the Rhythmatic special Christmas party, at Ground 281, the trendy new venue up on Kingsland road. Don’t be fooled by the exterior signboard stating ‘Paradise Inn’. Step inside the dimly lit room with a Victorian style décor, marvel at the giant Asian fan standing over the bar and let the music envelop you. But wait, that’s not Wesley Razzy on the turntable. Got you!

    It was Team KweekWeek’s first time at Ground281. Only after the hostess kindly pointed us to the side door by the bar with a Rhythmatic poster on it did we realize that the party was actually in the basement, and not upstairs. So we engulfed into the staircase, went through the doors and found ourselves in the nicest looking basement we’ve seen in a while. We know what you’re thinking – ‘of course it looks nice, it’s brand new’. Well, even apart from that fact, Ground281 has this inherently ‘homey’ atmosphere to it, reminiscent of other venues such as the Hoxton Basement. Perhaps it’s the coloured lights hanging at strategic places on the ceiling, sending rays of red, blue, yellow and purple through the crowd, the nice marble bar with the usual ‘cash only’ policy, or the shadow lampshade behind the DJ set that illuminates Wesley’s face with every colour in the spectrum. Overall, we were very impressed by the venue.

    The evening was a bit slow to begin, even as Wesley warmed the crowd with some deep house beating on the sound system, but as if by magic, as soon as the clock struck 1, the room filled up. Familiar faces were all around, smiling and cheering every time the DJ hit a break or did a transition to a new track that made everyone redouble in their energy to keep on dancing. One thing that we particularly enjoyed at Ground281 was the closeness of the DJ to the crowd. There weren’t even metal barriers to prevent the crowd from getting too close, which in some cases can be quite risky, but in this context only worked to reinforce the intimacy of the evening, and between everyone who was there.

    As Wesley finished his set, he was followed by Mateo and Martinez, the Danish phenomenon who didn’t fail to drop some very upbeat tracks with a clear bass, and consistent tempo throughout that invariably gives you the need to ‘move your body’, as D.F.X so aptly put it. Hands up for Kiri and Kostas for another great evening with a more intimate feel this time, as it shows Rhythmatic’s versatility with different parties. If you were unable to join us this time, don’t despair, and get your ticket now for part 2 of the Christmas special, with an exclusive 4 hour set by Santé, Anna Wall and Matteo Manzini. See you there!
