Syazwan Haziq started his DJ career in early 2011 after discovering electronic music in high school and immediately taking a deep and fullfiling interest in it. He then made the initiative to take a step forward exploring the fundamentals and techniques of creating music. After years of hard work on productions and promotional material, he released a 2 track EP under local label Dalam Muzika on Beatport – “Gelek Gelek” and “Rythm Of Jungla”. The vibe and feel of his tracks flirts and incorporates with various elements and sounds made known in tech house, the groovier side of techno, unmistakable tribal tech house and also is not ashamed to show the darker side of his talent but as of late, Syazwan has seen to take a plunge in the deep house territory and even there he’s getting the formulas right.
A producer and a remixer, he has produced tracks with international producers such as Jay Peq, Angie Dibujos, Ara Coiset, David Sichinawa and our local DJ/Producer DJ Hightech and Nicky C. He cites his main influences as Booka Shade and Sebastien Leger and is always improving himself and adapting new techniques to enhance future performances.
Sishi Rosch was poised to be one of the breakthrough talents of 2011 and this LP goes a long way in cementing his reputation as a gifted producer. Tales Of A Sleazy Affair is hard to categorize. Composed while Rosch was living in Berlin, the album is a collection of diverse sounds that keeps things firmly in the sleazy, midtempo range that really shakes and pops like an old Seventies grind house flick. There are tracks for the headphone, the soul, and the dance floor that hang together well for a satisfying collection that sizzles with rich musical dialogue. Hints of Latin rhythms, Balearic excursions, downtempo head nodders, crisp electro beats, and lush deep house merge into a sounds that is uniquely Sishi’s.
Nayan Soukie and Fritz Windish are an intercity duo based in Berlin and Hamburg. They are deeply rooted in the north of Germany with strong ties to some of the best venues like Fusion Festival and Bachstelzen. In a short period of time the two have established their own sound, which surprises with a variety of styles between deep house productions on URSL and 200 Records or more functional tracks with a pop attitude on labels like “Time has Changed” and “Liebe Detail”. But you always have the signature of driving deepness, which works like a carpet under the feet and the long and psychedelic breaks make you shiver on the floor. Soukie & Windish are a sure shot for mature and dirty dancefloor, but they also like to play on virgin grounds in the beginning of the night.
