Bonobo is the stage name of the British musician, producer and DJ Simon Green (2).
'St Germain' is the stage name of Ludovic Navarre and based on the story of the Count of St. Germain, a mysterious and eccentric man from the 18th century who claimed to be several hundred years old.
St Germain is among the leading French masters to have established the 'French Touch': the 'French Traxx EP' and 'Motherland EP', both released in 1993, introduced his style: a mix of deep house, jazz and lounge; sampling and real instruments playing side to side.
The album 'Boulevard' (1995) and the track 'Alabama Blues' (reworked by Todd Edwards at the same period) made St Germain a success worldwide. Five years later, the album 'Tourist' (2000) had an tremendous impact with the famous singles 'Rose Rouge', 'Sure Thing' and 'So Flute'.
Matthew Dear's most recent excursions have found him at the doorsteps of the minimal-but-funky regime of techno music. Inspired by pioneers like, Mike Inc., Thomas Brinkmann, and Ricardo Villalobos, Dear has ingested, manipulated and re-introduced his version of this always changing and innovative realm of sound creation. Recent acceptance into the legendary Plus 8 roster and ever-popular Berlin based, Perlon label has solidified Dear as a viable source for pushing the boundaries of modern dance music while at the same time remaining focused on the simple goal of making people dance.
Daktyl is a multi-instrumentalist with a diverse musical experience. He uses beat-driven grooves that merge Hip-hop, Soul, Garage and Bass for music that is equally relevant and exciting on both sides of the Atlantic. Daktyl first emerged on our radar when he conquered two official remixes for Dawn Golden’s album Still Life over the summer, which have sense collected over 1 million views together. A coveted sound across BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra over the past year, he’s also just completed a 32-date tour with Slow Magic and additional official remixes for heavy hitters such as Flosstradamus and Dirty South. Cyclical is a work of art from beginning to end and brings forth a unique sound, merging all modern genres with a futuristic approach, that we’ve all been hungering for but have yet to hear.
