Desert Dwellers skillfully blend deep bass, earthy percussion, ethereal voices, and multicultural instrumentation into a sonic incense for mind and body.
Bluetech's upcoming album «Illuminated Gates» is about liminal spaces, the spaces in-between known & unknown. Music never stops. There is ALWAYS some loop repeating in his head, something heard or something new that’s wanting to find a way out and be planted like a seed & grow into a song tree
Crawling behind his living room soundsystem listening to classical music with headphones on when he was 4, was when he first fell in love with music. He left his body and traveled through the landscapes of sound. It all began with a piano.
His music continually grows. He’s come full circle in many ways, with new releases this year having a strong ambient quality to them that is reminiscent of his early work. It has evolved though; the musical geometries unfold in different ways, and move in different directions.
JUST EMMA (Underyourskin Records
In the depth of music you close your eyes. You close your eyes to open your heart. You open your heart to give in to the strength of floating spaces of music. Welcome to the sound of Just Emma. They duo manages to make you drift from reality to a fictional journey into a different world. For more than four years Alex and Saskia have been part of the electronic music scene, spreading their driving, deep, hence melodic and playful sound focusing on one message their music reveals to every single person: love! While Saskia‘s musical skills developed during early childhood piano lessons, Alex made first contact with electronic music with his “Minimal Lounge“ solo project. Releasing on labels such as Katermukke, Hanse Hertz, Plötzlich Music and Connaisseur Recordings it is their own imprint Underyourskin Records that has been causing a buzz lately and on which Just Emma releases their dark and melodic interpretation of electronic music. Therefore the duo prefers to play the early morning hours to attract the crowd with an ocean of diverse sounds.
DJ MAGGIE (Moontribe Collective
DJ Maggie is not out to rattle empty beats. She’s after a human connection through the universal language of music. Her soulful sets go deep into the groove of ambient, downtempo and trip-hop, taking her audience along on a spacious, uplifting ride.
The Southern-California native purchased her very first album at age nine. It was ‘The Wall’ by Pink Floyd. Decades later, she still applies similar discernment to the artists and tracks she hand-selects whether she’s playing a desert dance floor, forest festival, or creating a gentle mix for a yoga class. She clocks light years online scouring for transcendent tunes—firm favorites include the work of Bluetech, Hibernation and Kaya Project.
An early and enthusiastic adopter of the mixed tape, Maggie has always loved sharing good music (and audio odysseys) with her friends. Through DJing, she’s also captured the ears of conscious partygoers, as well as downtempo and trip-hop music fans all over the globe who find her on Facebook, Soundcloud and other sites.
Initiated to the decks by her beloved Moontribe community in 2005, Maggie has gone on to play events for other cool crews like Green Sector, Tropical and the Do Lab. Ultimately, Maggie dons her headphones in the hope that her playful, positive music offers a moment of meaning, healing or inspiration to those tuning in.
