On September 29 sees the most in-demand label of the year hitting our floor with no better reps than the founders in the flesh:
Dj Tennis – Italian born, Berlin frequent, long term dj, promoter, music connoisseur and, most recently, producer is well his ability to deliver the most talked about parties. From the life and Death showcase in Barcelona, during Sonar 2012, through the Club Der Visionaere do and the Ibiza marathons, Tennis seems to be (in the words of James Cameron) the king of the world
Get a glimpse of the man in the act here:
Though Thugfucker have been producing house and disco for years, their breakthrough hit came only in 2011. “Disco Gnome” polished up a familiar R&B vocal hook and turned it into one of the zeitgeist defining tunes of the year. It straddled genres lines, built at a slow and sultry tempo and featured plenty of shimmering synths. So too did it come with equally on-point remix from Tale of Us with whom Italian-New York duo Holmar Filipsson and Greg Oreck have since gone on to work (as Life And Death) on Visionquest’s eponymous imprint. The duo plays around the world from fabric to BPM festival to WMC so we are glad to have them.
