Through Drum and Bass, Fadi Mohem became inspired by electronic music from a young age. Since then, he has built up an extensive stylistic portfolio that has no genre boundaries. With the Reckless EP, however, a first cut can only be tested out on the dance floor. The fact that his debut single simultaneously marks the first catalogue number of the new label of the Berlin event series, Werk, is actually consistent with the same sphere of emerging producers ready to step up and challenge the old guard.
FJAAK, the Berlin-based duo of hardware heads, have been constantly making a name for themselves over the last half a decade. Having grown up together in Spandau on the outskirts of Berlin, Felix Wagner and Aaron Röbig began quite early to create all different kinds of music before ending up taking on the city’s heritage – techno – to make it their own. It was back then in 2009 at ‘Gewerbe 15’, their 50 qm shared flat studio, where they started to develop their very own distinct sound.
The duo first cut their teeth in the electronic music scene by organizing illegal raves in and around Berlin, which eventually led them to run their own techno series – Machine Vibes. Based on all hardware setups and vinyl only sets, the series took them not only to clubs beyond the German capital’s borders but all over Europe, steadily growing their reputation and fanbase.
2014 marked the turning point of FJAAK’s career, when 50Weapons bosses Modeselektor decided to take the young trio under their wings. The start of a promising collaboration which saw them release five critically acclaimed EPs on the label within one and a half years, whilst incessantly travelling the world.
Despite their young age FJAAK have played over 200 live shows, spreading their elaborate analogue sound all around the globe. From Los Angeles to Beijing, from SXSW back to Berghain, FJAAK were there to deliver what has become their trademark: raw, naturally crafted techno!
A new collective of two DJ and producers. Marcin Chumowicz and Paweł Sowa, who are well-known on Polish music scene as for their solo projects – Cocolino and Sovinsky. Under a new name they create smooth and oriental ethnic sounds. This year they signed with leading Los Angeles record label Pipe&Pochet and in the nearest future they will release 3 new pieces including remixes for foreign artists.
As they say, „Foxall is not only a producent’s duo but a name of a tribe. A tribe that is built on something far more important than its geographical location. A tribe built on shameless, cross-cultural love for music, the celebration of the beauty of the people around us and the world, and a deep, intimate relationship with Mother Earth. Slow and deep sounds sourced from the farthest corners of the world take listeners to an unique state of mind.”
