Rumor Presents… PROK & FITCH

Tickets: http://www.wantickets.com/Events/124243/Prok-Fitch-4-12-2013/

Tipped by the national media as ‘One’s To Watch’, Beatport’s Artist tip in 2010, and rave reviews throughout 2011, Prok & Fitch have more than proved the journalists’ predictions right. The hottest DJ/producer pairing in house music have chalked up an impressive array of achievements over their 6 years working together, with annual worldwide tours from Brazil to Australia alongside their full international DJ diary.

Now focusing on their original productions, Ben Prok and James Fitch’s works have been signed to some of the biggest names in the business: Axtone, Great Stuff, Toolroom Records, CR2, Stealth, 303Lovers and more. With serious and diverse support from the likes of Carl Cox to the Swedish House Mafia, Pete Tong to Tiesto there’s few clubs worldwide which haven’t witnessed the Prok & Fitch reaction.

The boys have also been remixing for some heavy duty names including Laidback Luke, Moby and Strictly Rhythm. Their own imprint, Floorplay Music continues to sign strong projects too, notably a smash from ATFC & David Penn – there’s no doubt that Prok & Fitch is becoming the byword for superior skills in quality house music. As 2012 kicked off the label approached 30 release’s & some great new music releases scheduled throughout the year.

Floorplay Music is much more than a record label though – it’s a way of life! Floorplay parties have quickly become stuff of late night legend. What started off as a small label showcase night has turned into regular roadblocks and sell outs in Brighton, Dubai and London. The Guardian, Mixmag, IDJ and DJ magazine have all proclaimed Floorplay to be the ‘best night in the South’ and it’s easy to see why – guests have included Dirty Vegas, Chris Lake, Mark Knight… the list just goes on.

In the DJ booth, it’s all about the groove with these guys, whether they are on a line up with the underground crew keeping it deep and dark or playing in the big main rooms for the masses, their versatility and acceptance across genres has been key to their success to date! Rocking mainstages at the infamous Sunburn Festival in Goa & many other festival’s, playing at some of he most prestigious clubs in the world: Amnesia in Ibiza, Sankeys in Manchester, Pacha in Sao Paolo and Circus in Montreal. It’s difficult to find a country that they haven’t visited in the past 12 months.

2012- is shaping up very nicely, with there’s busiest DJ diary to date, hotly anticipated releases on Floorplay, Great Stuff & Toolroom in the first quarter of the year. Expect collaborations with Filthy Rich, Rene Amesz, Marco Lys & more all the ingredients are in place for 2012 to be their best year yet…..

Gareth Emery at Rumor


Rumor Presents…

GARETH EMERY:

Most DJ/producers don’t crack into the DJMag Top 100 before the age of 30. Most of them don’t shun major label attention. Most of them don’t have them don’t have the balls to call out the scene that they belong to when it’s failing to deliver the goods. And some don’t even produce ‘their’ own tracks. Gareth Emery, with his potent blend of trance, house, electro and techno, however, is not your average major league artist.

He was a prodigious talent in his childhood, teaching himself to play the piano from the age of 4, and continuing his invaluable classical education until he began playing guitar in an indie band at 15. Neither of these were false starts for his eventual electronic conversion; instead, both paths giving him essential experience and understanding of music and songwriting and how to convey emotion through his sounds. His baptism of fire came on a chance trance trip to Ibiza in 1998, which was followed by three years of learning the machinations of electronic music making. At the age of 22, he created a track on a laptop while on holiday in France. That track was the instant classic Mistral; a stunning debut which soon had unsuspecting pundits and clubbers alike eating out of his hands. From here onwards his career ascent was impressively – and deservedly – rapid.

“I guess it’s just good, melodic dance music,” he says of his musical style. “One of the most positive things about the scene over the past few years has been the gradual breaking down of genre barriers and the cross-pollination of sounds. I just look for records that I enjoy musically and also work well in a club. The genre is unimportant”. He’s not afraid to meld his bold, scintillating electronic motifs with more organic flavours, with his crisp, sharp leads and basslines frequently married to soaring vocals, traditional songwriting prowess and what some might call ‘proper’ instruments.

While he’s spent record-breaking stints at the top of Beatport’s Trance sales chart, and while trance will always be a part of what he does, he won’t let the sound ultimately define him. “I’ve realised that my strength is in music and melodies that touch people. I’m a music guy. It just happens to be that the music I make is electronic. That realisation has allowed me a lot more creative freedom, then when I felt I had to write music for a certain ‘scene’.” It’s this very decision which has helped him to garner such widespread acclaim and which has ensured that he’s never boxed as simply a trance DJ/producer. His ambitions are bigger than any one sound or scene, and his eclectically flavoured output is testament to that fact. “The longer I’ve been producing, the less I see myself as a dance music producer and more as an artist and musician” he explains of this approach to production. “I always start a track with the music, rather than the beats, and I found the dance scene after classical piano training and years of playing guitar in bands, so I guess in a way I’ve come full circle.”

His ground-breaking podcast started back in 2006, marking him out as one of the key early adopters of the now ubiquitous format. Nominated several times for the Miami IMDA Best Podcast award, it’s been a seriously important calling card for his career. “I got lucky basically. But I also never had any musical rules about the show; it was always whatever tracks I liked that week, regardless of whether they fitted my sets. Down the line that allowed me to be more innovative and varied with my DJ sets.” He’s consistently voted inside the DJMag Top 100 DJs Poll – peaking at Number 7 – with his burgeoning Garuda party selling out Manchester’s legendary Sankeys four times in a row and spawning a critically acclaimed compilation, The Sound Of Garuda. Building a musical brand around his name in record shops, download stores, radio and clubland has given him an all-encompassing reputation in dance music which is rivalled by few.

His 2012 is off to a huge start, with latest single Concrete Angel premiered on Judge Jules’ Radio 1 show , and its video added to the prestigious MTV Dance playlist as well as racking up 1 million YouTube plays in its first three weeks online. He’s been chosen as a resident for Las Vegas’s Marquee – one of the most outstanding club venues in the world in the city that everyone’s calling the new Ibiza – while he’s also playing the enormous Ultra Music Festival and taking Garuda to Space Miami. Clocking up air miles like nobody’s business, he’s massively in demand across the globe, his continually evolving sound gaining him bookings at an impressive variety of clubs and festivals the world over.

As you can probably tell, Gareth Emery is a man of hard-graft and sizeable ambition. His ambitions are impressive, with a view to produce bands and other artists in the future. His focus for the foreseeable future is on building further on the huge platform that Garuda sits on, taking his club nights and new show across the globe, while continuing to create more slices of ‘anti-genre’ dancefloor gold.

Rumor Presents…

Sean Tyas, a New York native, now residing in Switzerland, brings to the dancefloor a mix of melodic harmony and driving groove that is sure to be just as effective on the legs as it is on the heart.

He got his start in 1999 with his first set of Tech-12s and started to learn how to mix music, but just for fun on the side and a good excuse to buy dance records. But for him, this was not enough. In the coming couple of years, he put together a studio and began producing records as well. By the age of twenty six, he has already remixed artists such as Christina Aguilera, Pink, Moby, Daniel Bedingfield, Christina Milian, and PPK. During this time he got his start into professional DJing with clubs in NYC such as Shelter and Exit.

Moving to Europe proved to be a great move for Sean, doing all production for DJ Beam in Germany and building his experience as a studio producer. Eventually Sean decided to step away, concentrated much more on his own productions and remixes. “Mirella” was the product of this exodus, as it was promptly signed to Afterglow Recordings, seeing John Askew and Dave Joy remixes. This led to a follow-up remix of Duderstadt – Muhanjala, which has seen almost every playlist of any trance DJ this year, including Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk.

Sean’s remix of Beam – “On your Mind” proved to be another HUGE club smash. Caned CONSTANTLY by the likes of Paul van Dyk, John O’Callaghan, & Armin van Buuren, this remix essentially locked Sean in as one of 2006’s more endeared talents in the genre.

The hype on his first Discover single “Lift”, was even more amplified by Sean’s winning of the Sander van Doorn – Punk’d Remix Competition, beating out over 250 other remixes. The following year and a half up until now, Sean has quickly been solidifying his place in the trance music genre with relentless remixes and productions.

On the DJ side of things, Sean has hit the ground at a running pace, and by now in 2008 he has already played in over 30 countries spread across 5 continents.

As 2009 comes around, Sean will now be getting back to the studio to focus on his original productions, and develop more as an production artist.

Morgan Page @ Rumor


Please email your names to deepspacelife@gmail.com to receive, priority entrance and FREE top shelf drink.

Rumor Presents…

With over 130 remixes to his name—including tracks by Madonna (“Miles Away”), Katy Perry (“I Kissed A Girl”), Tegan & Sara (“Back In Your Head”), and La Roux (“Bulletproof”)—Morgan Page has earned a solid reputation for transferring insatiable pop energy to the dance floor in the form of banging, progressive house tracks. High ranking spots on iTunes’ dance chart, Beatport’s progressive chart, and Billboard’s club charts affirmed his salability, while an ’09 Grammy nomination for Deadmau5’s remix of Page’s “The Longest Road” simultaneously bolstered his underground cred while spotlighting his skills as a songwriter.

Page released his first official full-length album in 2008. Entitled Elevate, it featured remixes of music by The Submarines, Dengue Fever, Nelly Furtado, Delerium, and others, along with a small handful of Page’s originals. It was the perfect calling card for a producer well steeped in vocal re-rubs, but eager to imprint his own unique mark upon dance music.

In 2010, Page will release Believe, a powerful, captivating album that makes good on his International Dance Music Awards nomination as Best Breakthrough Artist, and typifies his journey from bootleg remixer to award-winning producer and world renown DJ.

“Believe took a year and a half to make, but it was worth it!” says Page. “I went to great lengths to make songs I felt will last a long time, and to create an album you want to listen all the way through. It’s easily my best work so far.”

As a college student and mix show radio DJ in Burlington, Vermont, Page learned to navigate the space between pop music’s accessibility and the heady minimalism of progressive house early on. At the age of 18 he was nominated for Boston Music Award, and early in his career produced a remix of “Angels,” a track by seminal trip-hop band Wax Poetic, featuring the vocals of one Norah Jones. The dance community was quick to catch on, and his first instrumental tracks were signed to taste-making imprints like John Digweed’s Bedrock, Satoshi Tomiie’s Saw Recordings, and James Zabiela’s Hearing Aid. In 2003, he made the move to Los Angeles.

“I was juggling remixes with a day job, then brewing coffee at midnight,” says Page, “burning the candle at both ends and saving money so I could write music full-time.”

The landscape dramatically shifted for Page when he released a now infamous collection of bootleg remixes in 2005 entitled Cease And Desist. Without the help of master tapes (or label permission) he extracted a cappellas and signature melodies from tracks by David Bowie, Coldplay, Imogen Heap, Esthero, and The Kills with surgical precision, then rounded out the sound with luminous instrumentation and blazing beats. His undulating progressive feel and strict attention to kit detail—never the same kick drum twice, ever—was a perfect compliment to the larger than life vocal hooks. Dance music blogs like Resident Advisor and Beatportal took note, and Page’s own server continually crashed under the weight of the mix’s download traffic.

“It was like going to boot camp,” says Page of the arduous process behind creating Cease And Desist. “It was a great way of getting good at editing with limited resources, and it got out to so many people. You just didn’t know who was listening to it.”

Everyone from DJs and producers to managers, agents, and of course fans got their hands on the album, and its underground success helped pave the way for music future placements in television shows like Samantha Who? and Melrose Place, as well as cutting edge campaigns and in-stores for Bebe, Chanel, and Sephora. With his resume and repertoire quickly expanding, Page struck again with the release of Elevate, an album that KCRW DJ and electronic music pundit Jason Bentley described as “a breakthrough collection of original music and remixes” full of “subtle electronics and thoughtful songs.” Jo-Anne Greene from All Music Guide was even more forthright in her praise, referring to Page as “a man fast becoming a legend.”

Having long jettisoned his status as an up-and-comer, Page is ready to step into the next phase of his career, firmly joining the ranks of established “triple threat” DJs, producers, and remixers like Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz. It’s no surprise that the dance music scene is already buzzing about Believe.

“Fight For You” is the album’s first single, and is already being supported by world class DJs like Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Above and Beyond, Dave Dresden, and Hernan Cattaneo. Bolstered with impassioned lyrics and swift, clean guitars, the track embodies Believe’s fragile yet faithful feel, pushing through wistful cinematic shades to the promise of something better up ahead.

“Believe is very dark, but I’m not a dark person at all,” Page explains. “I just lean towards these specific chords and melodies. Melancholy with a little bit of hope.”

The Pete York cover “Strange Condition,” a simple, spatial arrangement that highlights Page’s ability let his vocalists control the direction of a song, and not be driven towards emotional peaks and valleys by just synths and bass. Page uses a similarly subtle approach on “Tell Me Why,” featuring the velveteen vocals of Télépopmusik’s Angela McCluskey. Elsewhere, Page enlists the talents of Matt Alber on “Agnus Dei” and Gabriel & Dresden alum Jan Burton on “Traces Remain” and the raucous “I’ve Had Friends.” On the moody “In The Dark,” Page himself takes a turn on the mic at the urging of another G&D contributor, Molly Bancroft, who was initially tapped to provide the vocals. For Page, it was simply the next logical progression in his maturation as a producer.

“I want to work with singer/songwriters who have depth to their lyrics, and I’m trying to bring influences in from other genres,” says Page. “It’s tragic to see all the tracks on Beatport that are just made for clubs. They’re great for what they are, but it’s not necessarily something you want to have in your car on repeat, or listen to again in 10 years. This album is really a reflection of myself, and I want these songs to last a long time.”

Rumor Presents…..

Tom Colontonio:
Electronic Dance Music is alive and well in the USA and proof comes in the unmistakable sound of Tom Colontonio. In the four short years since his first release, Colontonio has emerged as one of an exciting new breed of producers. Consistently releasing productions on exclusive
electronic music labels such as Armada, Vandit, Spinnin’ and Discover, he has successfully positioned himself alongside the most acclaimed producers in the industry.

Tom Colontonio’s assault on the EDM scene comes on the back of a longstanding DJing career and many years spent in bands and as a session guitarist. Undoubtedly, it is this solid musical background which gives his productions such technical depth and polished soundscapes. Soon after first turning his hand to production came Colontonio’s breakthrough release, 2007’s ‘Rounder’. The track received strong support and was championed by trance aficionado Paul van Dyk, catapulting Tom Colontonio into the consciousness of fans and industry insiders alike. He has gone on to emulate this success in subsequent productions with ‘The One’, ‘Reflection’ and ‘Elysium’ all showcasing his crisp production skills and ability to combine melody with energetic, hard-hitting low ends.

Without a doubt it is that trademark Colontonio sound, driving and atmospheric, that has cemented his tracks in the CD wallets of the DJ elite and earned him a place at the top of the “about to skyrocket” pile. Aside from his memorable original productions, Colontonio’s list of collaborations and remixes reads like an all-star line up. No stranger to the spotlight, this talented US producer can boast collaborations with Sophie Sugar and John O’Callaghan and also remixes for trance heavyweights Sean Tyas, Activa and Paul van Dyk. Keen to blur the lines between trance and house, Colontonio’s latest productions signal a departure in to an exciting, genre-bending style of EDM. One thing’s for sure – Tom Colontonio is simply unstoppable.

Now more than ever, Tom Colontonio is carving his way to the top of the thriving EDM scene via strong, genre-fusing productions and memorable peak-time performances. If you’re lucky enough to catch one of his live shows, you’ll soon see why. Having already brought his signature sound to over 20 countries, he has now turned his attention to crafting his own brand of clubnight. ‘Omega’ is New Jersey’s hottest new event and Tom Colontonio is at the helm.

DJ Michael Myers:
As the DJ credited with founding Philadelphia’s trance music scene, Michael Myers has always been one of the most dedicated pioneers of the Eastern Seaboard’s dance music community. An intensely serious minded and driven individual, Myers was first exposed to techno in 1992 via the music of renowned DJs Josh Wink and Frankie Bones. Although Myers began his career behind the tables spinning hip-hop records, he quickly discovered that electronic music was his calling. Drawn to the melodic tones of progressive trance, Myers found it to be “more intricate to mix than people would think. It’s a style of music that is almost a pop format. While pursuing his career as a DJ, Myers became deeply involved behind the scenes with two of Philadelphia’s dance music institutions: Local 13 and 611 Records. A dynamic member of the Local 13 production company since 1995, Myers is involved in every aspect of their events. He serves as a DJ, promoter, junior partner and event coordinator, helping out with everything from booking the talent to decorating the event venue. While gaining recognition at Local 13 events for his skills behind the tables, Myers quickly amassed an impressive touring schedule. As he traveled across the U.S., playing in Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Phoenix and Pittsburgh, among other cities, Myers’ popularity exploded back in his hometown. Myers is proud to admit that he receives a profound sense of confidence knowing that’s he working toward a solid career in the music industry without really having a blueprint on how it’s done. Says Myers: “Bringing Philadelphia an atmosphere that shows what dance music is all about. It is truly a wonderful gift.
