Love, love LOVE 🙂

eclectics

The incombustible duo In a Certain Ratio, captains of the label Dogs & Vultures Records, are premiered on Eclectics, and do so with a straight set, hypnotic, heterodox,with full of details and narrative, cooked at a slow pace.

Fine Chap Man 2.0 🙂

eclectics

MAN2.0 AKA Mark Bailey has spent much of the last two decades on the dancefloor, losing his shit to DJs like Erol Alkan, Justin Robertson, Ivan Smaagghe and any other DJ not afraid to play slightly left of centre. Initially, Mark played in some of the worst bands in West London never to leavethe practice studio before becoming caught up in London’s  club scene, trawling London’s clubs like the End, Turnmills, the Cross and Fabric before London’s night life went a bit limp.

In recent years, Mark turned to music production as a means to aleviate his ADHD and after gaining some attention from the Ransom Note and Denis Jurgen’s 44100hz Social Club, was signed to Tronik Youth’s Dark Disco and Post Techno imprint Nein.

Big Fan!!

eclectics

For the last 10 years Gal Kadan has been one of the most prominent DJs emerging from the Israeli world music scene. Artfully mixing genres, cultures and styles, his mixes create a unique story about his place and time in the sizzling Middle East, merging lovers and haters, enemies and friends, strangers and acquaintances into one border-defying musical set.

Hailing from Israel’s nightlife capital Tel Aviv, he soon gathered a following that saw him play in the city’s leading venues The Block, The Breakfast Club and The Bootleg, as well as over seas in many European cities such as Berlin, Paris, Zurich, Cologne, Frankfurt and more.

Today Gal continues to stretch the boundaries of multiculturalism in his studio work, remixing obscure Middle Eastern gems, and in his sets, propelled by electronic beats that drive ethnic influences, creating a refreshing new approach to clubbing.

Beauty this un. x

eclectics

Pshychedelic mood, swaying rhythms, Bloody L navigates through musical richness with a distinctive sensibility. As she mixes, Bloody L, resident of the collective Abstrack from Nantes, frees herself from standards and depicts landscapes from cosmic music, balearic to ethnic influences. Listening to Bloody L is like delving into the heart of a deep selection and dancing in a world swinging between a sweet soulful trip and loosening moves, culmulating into a sincere and wholehearted mix.

The Budapest based Grabo’sky is very familiar with different styles as producer and DJ as well. He plays house, disco, hip-hop, funk, rock, 70s electronica, folk, ethno or anything that hypnotic and cool.
His DJ carrier started in 1997 and after more than a decade later he began to produce his own music in 2011. Grabo’sky started to work on simple edit versions of his favourite tracks but not much later he made more and more re-arrangments and experimented with the tracks. To this day he made numerous edits in various styles from grunge superstars Pearl Jam, krautrock heros Can, the legendary disco producer Cerrone or great names of the Hungarian pop-rock (Katona Klári, V’Moto-Rock, East, Edda, Kimnowak, etc). Meanwhile he made a lot of own tracks. He released some singles, EPs and an album. His own materials and remixes came out on labels like Mana Mana Records, SpaceWalker Recordings…

Chris Coco and Jim Breese’s Balearic record label: Balearic 2 on bandcamp
Good Measure EP Part 2 on Aficionado Recordings

Simon’s next production, Ottimismo (Italian for ‘optimism’) is a particularly laidback affair and Simon didn’t hesitate to send it to Aficionado Recordings feeling it might be a perfect match for their ultra-balearic stylings…
