Our 14 Podcast comes from Sepp
Sepp aka Teo, borned and raised on the Romanian Black Sea Coast, had his first contact with the electronic music in 2005, when he listened for the first time various artists from the Cocoon rooster. From that moment he became passionate about techno sounds.
Since 2007 he was topping the bill at the biggest events in the city ’till 2008, when he became the resident of the LaMania club. After 3 years of residence, he decided it was time for production. Artists like Cezar, Cristi Cons, Valentino Kanziani used Sepp’s unreleased work in their sets.
He shared the dj stand with Cezar, Priku, Kozo, Dan Andrei, Cristi Cons, Paul Agripa, Noidoi, Bill Patrick, Livio & Roby, Nima Gorji, Thomas Melchior and a few others.
Now, Sepp’s attention is turned toward some unfinished projects which will be released through this year.

Ibiza Voice – Double Trouble presents Rhythmatic 5th Anniversary Tour
5 years in any ever expanding and evolving scene is some feat, even footballers often tumble at hurdles well before this. Though the game we are talking about is club promoting, the style they play is house and techno and the name on the back of their shirt if they had one would be Rhythmatic. I won’t say what team they would feature on because that would cause unnecessary controversy, but the city it would be in is London.
Being the go-to London event for house and techno’s rising stars and established names to touch down in the capital, they really do do things like any functioning sports team would. Having already welcomed the likes of Marco Carola, Carl Cox, Rhadoo, Petre Inspirescu, Matthais Tanzimann, Davide Squillace, Onur Ozer, Livio & Roby, Guillaume and the Coutu Dumonts and Premiesku, obviously there is a strong connection with the bavarian and romanian ends of dance music. There are more, maybe unexpected surprises lined up for 2013 as the well known and loved Double Trouble duo move forwards with the 5th Anniversary Tour.
Each of the events they curate possess a distinct uniqueness about them, like the 86′ world cup semi final any Football Fan remembers for that game changing incident of ball to hand. God’s divine intervention (if there is one) rains through the clouds at their parties. Booking guests such as DJ Three, Fumiya Tanaka, Boris Werner and other such important stars that create such ingenious music, really adds that touch of class that others often lack with predictable bookings.
The biggest step the brand has taken of late has been the Introduction of its record label, aptly named Rhythmatic Records. Promoting the current sound of the parties and predominantly focussing on releases from their residents, they also look to eventually collaborate with other acts once the label has found its feet.
Now an established name on the London club circuit, Rhythmatic are only looking to the future of their journey. Revamping their designs and launching a new logo, its a modernising step that could subliminally send them into orbit. 2013 is going to be an extremely busy year for the crew, with the tour taking them to warehouses and various locations around the UK and beyond. As they continue to spread the Rhythmatic disorder to the next level and even further reachers. All games have a strategy to them at some level, it is how to play them that is key, and boy do Rhythmatic play theirs with style, lets hope they just keep the music playing on long into the night.
RA – Rhythmatic has announced the details of its schedule for spring and summer 2013.
The London promoter, which just turned five, will throw its 2013 parties at various venues around the city, including a few warehouses. As usual, techno and house dominates the lineup, boasting Mayan Nidam, San Proper, Bruno Pronsato, Roman Flugel, Sebo K, Romanian Priku and German DJ Julietta as its headliners. Two “Un:Rated” parties will also take place in March and April—events which promise a limited capacity of 100 and a completely secret lineup. Rhythmatic also promises a new label in 2013 as well as an anniversary tour around the UK and overseas, though details for both have yet to be firmed up.

Since she began DJing and producing in 1999, Maayan has racked up an impressive discography. As Miss Fitz, she has released EPs on Raum…musik, Freak n’ Chic, Contexterrior and Circus Company; she also travels in disguise as Laverne Radix, with singles for Oslo’s Love Letters from Oslo and for Raum. March 2009 also marks the release of Maayan’s debut release under her own name: “Night Long” (on Japanese label PowerShovel), an intimate album woven together out of recordings of Cuba’s best contemporary instrumentalists that later on that year was followed by an EP on the ever changing Perlon.
The diversity of Mayaan’s sound is no doubt a result of an unusually global upbringing. Born in Tel Aviv, she lived in the Mediterranean city for most of her life, studying multimedia and, following a six-month stay in New York, beginning to DJ bars and small parties. Tel Aviv isn’t a big place, though, and so when Maayan came to feel that she had hit a wall in her home town, she packed her bags and set off to travel the world. Argentina was her ultimate destination. But after a six-month stint in Amsterdam, she found her way to Berlin, which turned out to be exactly she was looking for. Inspiration was everywhere, from the avant-garde Club Transmediale festival to Jamie Lidell’s experiments in live sampling to, of course, the city’s legendary underground party scene. She soaked up everything, building up her studio and experimenting with different sounds and processes, gradually inching towards the dance floor. Seven years later, she remains in Berlin, making music and molding the contours of the city’s clubs to fit her own inimitable vision.
As Rhythmatic approaches its 5th anniversary and 5 years of true to the bone, music focused parties, they have become the go-to London event for house and techno’s risings stars and established names to touch down in the capital, for a series of rare and debut showcases.
Having already welcomed the likes of Marco Carola, Carl Cox, Rhadoo, Petre Inspirescu, Matthias Tanzmann, Davide Squallice Onur Ozer, Livio & Roby Guillaume and The Coutu Dumonts and Premiesku to grace the Rhythmatic stage, expect more surprises for 2013 as the well known and loved Double Trouble duo move forwards with the 5th Anniversary Tour. With line-ups that pluck the finest and most respected talents from the scene, while setting the bar and mapping out the labels, artists and brands that are next to catch the industry’s attention.
Rhythmatic strictly pursues an ethos towards cutting edge music, genre-bending and an open-minded attitude. Each event Rhythmatic drives towards achieving versatility and steers away from following the obvious trends, by booking guest such as DJ Three, Nastia, Thomas Melchior, Fumiya Tanaka, Boris Werner, TC Studios, Priku, Sante, Rampa and Luca Bacchetti who can offer something completely diverse to their audience. The key to their success is also in the hands of their extremely popular residents Stathis Lazarides, Wesley Razzy, Archie Hamilton and Ceri that have seen praise across London, UK and abroad.
Not to mention the biggest step the brand has taken yet, the Rhythmatic record label will see the light of day in 2013. Promoting the current sound of Rhythmatic parties and predominantly focusing on releases from their residents, they also look to eventually collaborate with other acts once the label has found its feet.
A now truly established name on the London club circuit, Rhythmatic are looking to the future as they celebrate 5 unforgettable years. Revamping their designs and launching a new logo, new branding and fresh face to Rhythmatic, a new chapter begins for one of the original boundary pushing parties to resonate from the capital. 2013 is going to be an extremely busy for the Rhythmatic family as the Anniversary Tour takes them to various warehouses and locations across the UK and overseas. As they continue to spread the Rhythmatic disorder to the next level and even further reaches, watch this space!

Maayan Nidam speaks to Samara Moss ahead of her debut appearance at Rhythmatic on the 2nd March
Q. You’re known for your eclectic, sometimes unusual and diverse sound. What is your inspiration in the studio? Do you develop tracks in a certain way?
A. I rewire my studio every 6-12 months so my way of working out a track changes all the time. It keeps things interesting and fresh for me, and so you get batches of tracks that use different instruments and different structures.
Q. What about under your different guises, such as Miss Fitz, do you create a track with each alter ego in mind or do you assign tracks to the one that fits when you’ve finished?
A. I don’t release anymore as Miss Fitz, but for sure when I work as Laverne Radix , for example, I would sit to work as Laverne. It has to start with an intention and since Laverne’s sound is so specific, I can’t just write something and tape ‘Laverne’ over it. A few times though there are leaks from project to project, something like leftovers.
Q. Do you think it has anything to do with your moving around? Tel Aviv, New York, Amsterdam, Berlin etc, do you incorporate these different cultures /experiences in your music?
A.The changes and differences between project to project has more to do with moving inside myself. Altering a state of mind and opening doors to different kinds of experiences and expressions that one ego might not allow, or feel comfortable with.
Q. Is your listening music very different from the music you make? What genres of music you really love? What’s your chill out music and your weekend music?
A.The club music I play is based on very fat beats which is not something I’ve ever been good at producing. My productions are more conceptual and at times also heady. It’s been inspired by the music that I play and also the music I listen to at home ,or in general outside of clubs , which varies between different times and genres. Most of it is very mellow and sweet and a lot of it has some weirdness to it, even when it’s 80′s pop.
I have a tendency to pick records that raise a lot of question marks in my head and I’m kind of hoping to do the same for the people that listen to the records I release, and have them ask questions like ‘did that just happen?’.
Q. Music has taken a big dive into retro classics, with lots of DJs pulling those 80s and 90s tracks out the bag. Are there any retro classics that always get you dancing?
A.It’s funny you see it that way. From my experience I can tell you that many Ds including yours truly, didn’t really take these classics out of the bag. They rotate of course, but there’s just so much good music released back in the day that it would be a shame to not combine it in the sets together with newer records.
Personally, I’m a big fan of Big Shot records. A lot of the house-songs released on it are irresistible.
Maayan Nidam @ BLOOP XMAS MATINÉ 2012
Q.You spend a lot of time making music, playing music, listening to music…What are the others things that you cherish? Are there other things you have that connection with creatively / emotionally?
A.I have a lot of energy and it’s sometimes really difficult for me to concentrate on music, so I do a lot of sports. I swim a lot and cycle too. I also have to take time to be alone and relax, meditate or even just read a book in a very quiet room. All of that helps me at the end to bring out exactly what I have in my head or at least get very close.
Q. What are your favourite kinds of spaces to play in? Are there certain crowds / cities that seem to really get your music / sets?
A.I like changing and playing one night to a small underground club full of DJs, the next night to a rave full of kids, then sometimes a festival on the beach and so on. It shakes things up. The only two things that I will always love more are day-time parties and outdoor spaces. There’s so much more energy in parties like that. I would love to see the day (or evening) where night clubs start working at 7-8pm and if you’re over 30, I’m sure you agree with me.
Q. We next see you at Rhythmatic on 2nd March in London, are you looking forward to playing alongside San Proper? Do you know him well through Perlon or will this be one of your first meetings?
A.I know San from Amsterdam. I go there often and I love the clubs there, so of course we bump into each other there or in Berlin. We played in fuse together last year and it was a lot of fun. He’s a unique character that makes great records and I’m sure we’ll have a special night with him.
Q. Do you still have a good relationship with Perlon? Do you see yourself releasing on the label again?
A.Just a few months ago we made a release as Mara Trax on Perlon. Of course, I keep in mind to do some future releases and meanwhile, play the ‘Get Perlonized’ night in Panorama Bar from time to time. The next one will be with Weraika in April.
Q. What have we got to look forward to from Maayan Nidam?
A.Two new collaboration projects. One together with Alex Picone, called The Kicks, and the second one, which is made mostly for live shows, called The Waves. Iit’s a collaboration of Cesar Merveille and me.

It’s been quite a ride for Rampa over the last couple of years. When it comes to DJing, he never really cared about the diehard dedication to the four to the floor-aesthetic, one can find among most Technoheads. He preferred to be diehard dedicated to a whole lot more, be it Punkrock, be it HipHop, be it any other suitable outlet for his genuine passion for music.
And when it comes to his status as a contemporary producer, some of those influences will always shine through. Don’t get the wrong idea, most of his works meet all stylistic requirements of the current Techhouse agenda, but still, his attitude and openness will easily define them as outstanding pieces.
From 2009 on, Rampa made a name of himself through Keinemusik, his own little d.i.y.-cosmos, being not only label, but also crew of likeminded Djs, producers and friends. The teamwork within this realm has seen a serious number of premier productions and collaborations, particularly with fellow producer &ME, not to forget the rest of the bunch, Adam Port, David Mayer, Reznik and Monja.
Besides, he’s got some other collaborations under his belt. He produced an album with Nomi of Hercules & Love Affair- and Jessica 6 fame. And he’s got the Rampa & Re.You Thing going on, a joint venture with likeminded producer Re.You, which is not only their live-moniker, but also a prolific pairing in production. They released various remixes plus tracks on Keinemusik, Souvenir, Gigolo and Strictly Rhythm.
So, if he’s not spitting out new material, be it solo or in collabos, Rampa is likely to be found behind some turntables between Berlin and New York, representing his own definition of Techno and House, bridging the gap between deepness and elation. Never taking things too seriously, apart from those serious grooves he’s got in his pockets
Rhythmatic with Maayan Nidam & San Proper
2nd March 2013 // 11PM – 6AM
East London Basement
Maayan Nidam (Cadenza, Perlon)
San Proper (Rush Hour, Perlon)
Stathis Lazarides (Rhythmatic, Cavo Paradiso)
Archie Hamilton (Rhythmatic, Moscow Records)
Rhythmatic launch into their 2nd event of the year, with the dust still settling from the Sold out opening party, the tour is well and truly underway. For the next event they return to Shoreditch for a very special collaboration, bringing together two respected guests from the Perlon camp coming together for a first time in the capital, Maayan Nidam and San Proper.
Maayan Nidam is an extremely talented and versatile artist, with over ten years experience in the industry and an impressive discography, releasing on the likes of Cadenza, Freak n’ Chic, Raum, and of course Perlon. Ms Nidam has both hands and feet firmly rooted in the underground, whether operating as Miss Fitz, Laverne Radix, Mara Trax or simply Maayan. Her DJ sets take listeners to unexpected places, the variety of her sound moves between a swinging, hips-and-ass sense of groove, funk and heavier, stripped back 4/4 rhythms, always delivered with a cheeky smile.
Amsterdam’s San Proper is driven by a fiery passion for music and an innate predisposition for eccentricity. He’s known and praised for his house & disco sets, but he’s also skilled in blending different styles from Acid to Afro-beat creating an extraordinary and eclectic mix. His breakthrough record, ‘Keep it Raw’ saw him signed to Perlon and a remix in the bag for the infamous Ricardo Villalobos. Responsible for dark-sided deep hose and twisted techno, he represents the Amsterdam club scene, bringing full on and live energy to his DJ sets.
Rhythmatic also welcome back two faithful and well-loved residents for this exceptional occasion. As part of the Rhythmatic tour, Stathis Lazarides recent bookings have taken him to Stuttgart, Kosovo, Thessaloniki and Athens and with many more trips the likes of Morocco and Mykonos, it was time to lock him down. Archie Hamilton has seen huge success; now a proud owner of the Fabric accolade, his release on Moscow records has also been supported by big names and pioneers including, Marco Carola, Nastia, tiNI and Onur Ozer. It’s a celebrated return for both!
This is set to be the most exciting and intimate gathering yet, before Rhythmatic embarks the next chapter of high profile and anticipated events these coming months. Watch this space!

Rhythmatic presents Avotre Showcase
2nd Feb 2013 // 11PM – 6AM
??12-18 Hoxton Street, London N1 6NG??
Santé (Avotre, Desolat, 8Bit)
Rampa (Avotre, Watergate Recs)
Stathis Lazarides (Rhythmatic, Cavo Paradiso)
The Unknown Project Soundsystem
(London Josef, Ma Teo, Federico Sandi)
Rhythmatic start the New Year with yet another UK exclusive. Firmly placed within the industry as the go-to party for introducing and showcasing talents from the world over, Rhythmatic are excited to welcome Avotre to London on February 2nd.
Avotre is not like the common, genre-specific labels we all know too well. Founded by renowned Berlin producer and DJ Santé, it’s far from another tech-house imprint that’s dropping hardly distinguishable productions every week. While house music might the bread and butter, R’n’B, downbeat and disco flavours are also celebrated by the labels crew including, Santé himself, Gigolo and Souvenir, Sascha Sible, Ahmad Laren, Sidney Charles and of course Rampa. This is a very special event for Rhythmatic as they yet again introduce another label set to make a stamp on this ever evolving music scene.
The same sense and sensibilities as Rhythmatic, Avotre is concerned about the scene’s well being. It’s another perfect match between label, promoter and party. This ethos doesn’t stop with the label; it’s felt through its members and in particular label owner Santé. His latest releases such as ‘Homegirl’ and ‘Spotlight’ have been extremely well received, as each of his new tracks toast to quality music and show off his ability to cleverly cross genres. Philipp has also been bringing the Santé sound as a live act with successful gigs in clubs like the Weekend, Watergate, Robert Johnson, WMC Miami, Fabric and Sonar to name just a few. His appearance at Rhythmatic is very exciting.
It’s been quite a ride for Rampa over the last couple of years. When it comes to DJing, his dedication to the four to the floor-aesthetic has wavered between punk-rock, hip hop, and any other suitable outlet for his genuine passion for music. His attitude and openness places him as an outstanding contemporary producer that still meets all the stylistic requirements of current tech-house. His work includes producing an album with Nomi of Hercules & Love Affair, a live-moniker and paring with likeminded producer Re.You, as well as spitting out his own new material. His serious grooves will be felt rumbling through the dancefloor this February.
Rid yourself of January blues and say cheers to health and wealth with an Avotre showcase at Rhythmatic’s first event of 2013. With an anniversary tour on the way, fresh branding and new project in the pipeline the Rhythmatic family, make sure you’re with them at the beginning of this significant year!
