The past six years have seen Oliver Dollar’s name gradually build to a recognizable staple in house music. The Berlin born and based producer has gained acknowledgment through a series of solid releases on labels such as Play It Down, Rekids and Front Room Recordings. Remix credits can be found amongst the most famed independents; including Greco Roman, Rekids and Exploited as well as majors: Polydor and Ministry of Sound. His killer tracks like Doin’ Ya Thang, Granulated Soul and Hoes have become dancefloor staples and he continues to keep butts moving release after release after release.
Hard earned respect from your peers is a rare commodity but Huxley, aka Michael Dodman, has it in spades. Since his late teens he's been producing, seeing initial underground success as a garage producer before his sound partly mutated towards a deeper, house-based sound in the past few years. Collaborations with old mate Ethyl for the then hot-as-hell Cecille imprint in 2009 showed a producer receiving massive support for what instantly seemed like a fully developed sound.
Since then, Huxley has delivered releases for an enviable roster of labels (Tsuba, Morris Audio, Fear of Flying, Hypercolour and 20:20 Vision for starters) and has stayed true to his robust, bass-led strain of house music that reflects his formative interests in UK and US Garage, with critics, punters and peers lapping up each release and remix. Whether veering towards deeper vibes alongside Ethyl on his own Saints & Sonnets imprint, turning in cast iron grooves for Tsuba or full vocal barnstormers like his lauded 'Let It Go' single for Hypercolour early 2012, there's a clearly defined but pliable and versatile sound to Huxley productions that marks him out as a truly talented producer.
As a remixer, the Tring (Herfordshire, UK) man is hugely in demand, turning his hand to major label talents with as much flair and skills as he does underground cornerstones like Like Burridge or Maya Jane Coles. Completing the picture is his Djing – another perfect string to his bow that sees him tour his open minded and deftly programmed music selections in clubs and festivals across the world on a weekly basis.
Going forward, there's more of the impeccable same and more than a smattering of surprises on the way from Huxley. Singles for his tight knit group of labels (he just describes them as 'mates'), more collaborative projects with the likes of Sam Russo and Ethyl, production projects for vocalists (he's not naming names) and carefully chosen remixes are all on the way and, if anyone who has heard recent sets for Rinse FM and Fact Magazine will know, more on-point DJ sets that span house, garage, techno and beyond.
James Marlon Magas is a longtime music producer, active in techno, electro, noise and film soundtrack. He favors analog production and a raw approach. In 1992, Magas co-founded the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based band Couch and the Bulb Records label, with Peter Larson. In 1995, Magas relocated to Chicago, forming the no wave band Lake Of Dracula, with multi-instrumentalist Weasel Walter. In 2000, Magas became solo electronic artist MAGAS and started the record store, Weekend Records and Soap, with wife Bridgette Wilson. In 2015, Magas releases Heads Plus on his new imprint, Midwich.
Known best as Willie Burns, William Burnett has been around for years, deejaying as Speculator and producing as Grackle, Black Deer and many other aliases. Currently releasing on taste making labels such as The Trilogy Tapes, L.I.E.S. and Creme Organization. On top of producing records he stays busy with a wildly varied weekly radio show (WTBS), managing the infamous record digging spot known as The Thing in Brooklyn and also running W.T. Records. A DJ set from Burnett is something to behold, where oddities and rarities sit next to classics and forgotten gems. Humble and honest, William Burns is a restless musical spirit that never stays in the same place for too long.
