    4. Innominati Perspicere:

    i instantly fell in love with this track as soon as i heard it! I will never get board of it as it has everything for me as a Dj and a listener. Looking forward to some more work from this collaboration.

    One of those tracks that you just keep turning up! Like a lot of his production it has a solid, catchy rolling groove. He is definitely one of my favourite producers of the moment.

    rhyth logo_02

    Labelled by Mixmag as “One of London’s most exciting underground raves…” is testament to just how far Rhythmatic have evolved as one of the most trusted promotors on the circuit.

    As Rhythmatic has reached 7 years in the Capital of true to the bone, music focused parties, they have become the go-to London event for house and techno’ s risings star. Simultaneously they have bought in some of the scenes biggest players h?aving already welcomed the likes of Carl Cox, Matthias Tanzmann, Davide Squallice, Premiesku, Onur Ozer, Margaret Dygas, Mara Trax and more to their events.

    Rhythmatic strictly pursues an ethos towards cutting edge music, genre-bending and an open-minded attitude which will make them perfect hosts for room 2 at Cocoon.

    rhythmatic meets Cocoon

    Sven Vath
    Steve Bug
    Christian Burkhardt – Live
    James Manero

    Sven Vath
    Few men in electronic music have built up a legacy as far-reaching and influential as Sven Väth has done with Cocoon. Using the deep heritage of the brand to propel Cocoon into new areas with the same innovation, passion and hedonism he’s always had. It’s this forward thinking mindset that’s kept Cocoon them at the top, and has kept their nights in Ibiza as a Mecca for partygoers globally.

    Steve Bug
    A multi-faceted artist and the man behind respected record label Poker Flat is nothing less than an electronic music ambassador, a much-loved spokesman to the people and headline guest around the globe.

    Popof 
    Starting his career from humble beginnings in the French rave party scene his productions are now regularly featured by the likes of Richie Hawtin, John Digweed, Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano to name just a few.

    Christian Burkhardt – Live
    A producer not content with existing within the realms of House and Techno, but one that is determined to further stretch its limits with his signature sound. A long list of remixes for Tsuba Records, Mobilee, Deep Vibes and Cocoon have cemented his position as one of Cocoon’s favorite residents.

  • 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?
