THE LOFT: KEVIN SAUNDERSON
Part of that amazing triumvirate, the Holy Trinity or the equilateral triangle from Detroit (which ever you like), Kevin Saunderson celebrates 20 years of musical production and being a fundamental part of the history of techno, and having been around pretty much all the 5 continents. Way more extreme and versatile than his two counterparts Derrick May and Juan Atkins, he’s published all sorts of stuff under different aliases. E-Dancer and Reese showed us his less friendly face (deep-tech-funk, a blow to the jaw) while at the same time his more mainstream take on dance with his band Inner City, responsible for a good quantity of hymns like Good Life. He’s remixed from Neneh Cherry to New Order, passing through Pet Shop Boys or Samantha Fox, including the collection History Elevate. Extreme and versatile, after celebrating 20 years of musical production all over the world with Elevator World Tour Saunderson returns to The Loft to teach us why he’s a big part of techno history. This time around he’s going to delight us with the rendition of the 1988 classic The Sound with new remixes for the occasion in his own label KMS. Melodically perfect, sound architect, Kevin Saunderson lands at The Loft to turn it upside down. From that point, more influence came from local area artists and disc jockeys such as Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson and the Electrifying Mojo (Charles Johnson). Exposure to Chicago's WBMX and WGCI, which featured artists and disc jockeys such as Chip E, Farley Jackmaster Funk and Larry Heard, also played a factor in shaping P. Scott's musical direction. After purchasing his first set of turntables, P. Scott began to hone his DJ skills. He played at local venues throughout the city of Detroit with legends such as Ken Collier and Jeff Mills and hold a most notably weekly residency at the Amsterdam Lounge (Windsor, Ontario) under the promotional group Cybersoul T.Q.E. While continuing to develop as a DJ, P. Scott began to remix music using two cassette recorders, a drum machine and turntables. Although these remixes never made it out of his basement, this was the beginning of his evolution as a producer. In the following years he focused more and more on his studio production skills and his own label Sistrum Recordings. Sistrum Recordings imprint was launched in October of 2006. The first release "Atmospheric Emotions" received rave reviews from many far and abroad. Since, P. Scott's releases have been charted by the likes of Levon Vincent, Efdemin, Lawrence, Fred P and many more. His vision for Sistrum is to continue to provide quality music for the masses and to never deviate from the bar: Do not be afraid to be different!
RAZZCLUB: KDA + ASHWORTH + ARTTU
KDA: Tras el misterio KDA se esconde la identidad de un productor inglés que no muestra su cara en ninguno de sus perfiles públicos. Unos dicen que es un conocido y establecido artista embarcado en otro estilo musical completamente diferente y nuevo. Otros, que se trata simplemente de un nuevo talento que quiere esconder su verdadero nombre e identidad. La cosa es que, con la jugada, lo que sin duda ha conseguido es centrar la atención en lo que verdaderamente importa: la música. Y esta habla por sí sola a través de los sublimes remixes que ha entregado para Chvrches, Vaults, Frances o Katy B, y de sus apariciones en Rinse FM. Sus influencias van de A Tribed Called Quest a Jill Scott, pasando por Maya Jane Coles o Tame Impala. Su track de debut Rumble, con remezclas de Arman Van Helden, Dj Sneak, Dense & Pikka, Arttu y Toddla T, se colocó rápidamente en el top de los charts de electrónica. Un misterio que puedes resolver por ti mismo esta noche.
ASHWORTH: 2015 fue el año de Ashworth dándose a conocer con su álbum de debut Grain en Needwant. El álbum mostró a un productor que tiene un don para la melodía, sensibilidad y profundidad musical. Una serie de lanzamientos y colaboraciones han situado a Ashworth como un nuevo nombre importante en la escena y un artista establecido, con lanzamientos en W&O Street Tracks, Anjunadeep, Holic Trax y Little Helpers, recibiendo el apoyo de artistas como Maya Jane Coles, B-Traits, Dixon y muchos otros
