It’s funny but people tend to be a bit down on Belgium, full of boring bureaucrats but here’s one good reason to get excited about Belgium, Spirit Catcher. Jean Vanesse & Thomas Sohet have become one of Europe’s most exciting production partnerships & live acts since they began 9 years ago. In that time they’ve clocked up the impressive list of labels that they’ve worked for (2020 Vision, Systematic, Freerange, SAW, Crosstown Rebels, K7, NRK, Rebirth, om…). Their excellent debut artist album "Night Vision" released on 2020 Vision is testament to this status, becoming album of the issue in many leading dance magazine around the world. Both have a diversity of experience to bring to the table and a wide variety of influences. Both cite Kings of Jazz, Herbie Hancock & Quincy Jones through to classic 80s boogie sounds of Zapp, Prince & Chic/Nile Rogers and on to the sounds of Detroit techno pioneers such as Juan Atkins & Derrick May as major forces in their own productions. Following stints on their successful first album they release their second opus "Partners in Crime" on Marc Romboy's Systematic Recordings in 2011. This time they incorporate a wider variety of styles and more dancefloor punch to the brew. "Partners in Crime" quickly becomes an highly recommended album by leading magazine such as Mixmag iDj, DJ Mag, Future Music, Keyboards, Raveline, Clash… As well as a prolific output, they have also built up their reputation as a highly regarded Live Act. To date Spirit Catcher have undertaken over 300 live performances in more than 50 countries, spanning 5 continents, taking in some of the world’s best venues: Space in Ibiza, Berghain in Berlin, Fabric and Ministry of Sound in London, Womb, Ageha, AIR in Tokyo, 360 in Dubai, Avalon in Los Angeles, Sankey’s in Manchester, Fuse in Brussels, Back2Basics in Leeds, Subclub in Glasgow, D-Edge in Sao-Paulo, Goa in Madrid, Zouk in Singapore, Stereo in Montreal, Smart Bar in Chicago, Cielo in New-York, Wire Festival in Yokohama, DEMF in Detroit, We love sounds festival in Australia to name but a few…
Oliver Schories - Black rain Oliver Schories - Black rain (David Keno Remix) Oliver Schories - Hamburg Vs Bremen Oliver Schories - Sarah Having been influenced by those various styles within the last decade of DJ‘ing, 1982 born Oliver has today a huge musical background which he uses for his productions as well as for his DJ-Sets. They are always unique. With releases on “Ostwind Records“, "Parquet Recordings" and “Musik gewinnt Freunde”, Hamburg-based Oliver Schories finally found his home in 2010 after years of experimenting with different electronic music styles like Drum n‘ Bass, 2Step and New Rave Electronica. More productions from Oliver are coming up, such as a remix for Klugermann (voltage musique 034), a re-edit for Pablo Bolivar (elevation recordings) and a remix for Taktmodul (tanztrieb tonträger). Whether it’s behind the turntables or in the Studio, Oliver likes versatile, techno infused tracks with room for deep elements as well as pure dancefloor work. His style is warm and subtle but at the same time very energetic. Concerning the tracks, let’s say that the remix of David Keno is the best, with a progressive rhythm and funky samples that I really like. It is the perfect mixture of an underground beat and great synths notes. “Hamburg Vs Bremen” is very interesting too, a bit darker, using some drops sounds! Oliver is definitely one of the producers to follow for 2011…. And we support him for sure.
