Watch & Listen
Chad Andrew has a rare simplicity to his sound. Quiet and introverted, he allows his music to speak volumes. His sound is often comprised of minimalistic grooves infused with deep hypnotic rhythms particular focusing on heavy low ends and contrasting meticulously crafted hats.
Growing up on a musical diet of hip hop, classical, and jazz music, these influences helped him to shape what is now his current sound. You can find him frequently involved in the larger well known parties all around the world such as BPM, WMC, Sonar, ADE and also playing regularly at more intimate venues such as Club Der Visionaere Berlin and Ibiza Underground.
Music should always be expressed from the heart and it should come from a rich heritage, built upon experience and an insatiable appetite to evolve with its different blends. This is true in the case of American DJ and producer Randall M, who has dedicated most of his life to the art, be it classical via piano and violin, to Jazz and Hip Hop, it is fair to say music has been his back bone since the very beginning.
As a DJ, Randall cut his teeth first in the world of Hip Hop, having firmly established himself within the scene nationally, before taking a directional change into the world of Techno after being introduced to the sound by a close friend. One could say here ‘and then the rest is history…‘ but that wouldn’t be very appropriate, this was just a natural step and continuation in Randall’s musical evolution, the next chapter in his long affair with the art.
The sound you would expect from Randy is nothing short of a rich culmination of groove and soul, intertwined with the analog rhythms from House and Techno, be it classic be it modern, known or unknown, to Randall it is only about the perfect blend and simple detail…capturing that moment. You can hear this in his own productions and remixes, a theme he will continue and build up with the arrival of his own imprint, Thirteen.
Now a resident in Berlin, having established himself over the summers on the Isle of Ibiza, which included a residency at Sankeys and regular appearances for tINI & The Gang, Rumors and ENTER. With a firm presence on the International scene, it is clear that he has now found his place within the techno genre, setting the tone for the next chapter of his long journey with music.
DJ & producer Unai Trotti always had an innate passion for electronic music. Born in Bilbao but lived in Madrid, while being a teenager he begins to focus on the electronic music and shares a number of sessions between his circle of friends.
At the age of 13 years, acquiring his first turntables and his introduction to the world of vinyl, Unai starts to buy a large number of Records. Once he finished his high school studies he enters the ECAM, where he studied Sound Engineering. Years are devoted to his studies and his DJ sets are made in private parties. After some time working as a sound technician in direct tours of various artists and companies of Dance, decided to travel to London in 2008 and expand his knowledge of sound.
In London Unai starts to work as waiter in the famous Café1001. It is here where he met Altino Fernandes (aka KID AM) and joins Brickbeat collective. Brickbeat is a group of dj, vj and free thinkers sharing the love for the music beats and also is a well- known London’s promotion, founded by Altino fernandes and Gabriel Pereira in 2004, famous for bringing new talented artists and famous international guests to its parties. Being part of Brickbeat gives to Unai the opportunity to play several times in Cafe 1001.
Unai and his dynamic dj sets shortly begun to get noticed by the crowd. In October 2009 Unai throw his first own warehouse party called Cartuli’s Day, based in different warehouse in East London area, with the aim of bringing back the almost lost underground spirit in the techno/house minimal parties in the beating heart of London’s music scene, the East side.
Cartuli’s Day gives to Unai the opportunity to make himself noticed not just by the audience but also by the industry: in short time he has been invited to play in the most famous London’s venues
Unai’s talent is revealed in both production and dj sets. Always giving himself entirely to the audience, Unai’s mixes are a reflection of his personality: dynamic groovy, deep and intense. Unai’s style goes from techouse to techno to more melodic & deep sounds, passing by minimal & dub. In constant connection with the crowd, Unai always creates a specific feeling on the dancefloor: only thing you can do while Unai is on the decks is dance.
Now working full time between the studio and Cartuli’s Day, with a new release out, Unai is one of London’s most important taste makers.
