The best music is made by those who expose our very guilty pleasures with undeniable, stimulating creations. This can be said of the mere samples we have received this year from rising producer CYRIL HAHN.
The Bern, Switzerland native experimented early on with music production during high school and abandoned it after leaving his hometown to pursue post-secondary in Vancouver, Canada. After a 3 year hiatus from music, feeling a need to return to his former love, he sat down and did what is considered by some to be taboo: stripped down two iconic R&B songs and gave them his unique atmospheric twist: Mariah Carey's "TOUCH MY BODY" and Destiny's Child "SAY MY NAME."
Cyrils' remixes instantly hit a nerve with internet fans & other artists after uploading to his Soundcloud, especially the Destiny's Child anthem. This summer, SAY MY NAME hit #1 on HYPEM in under 2 weeks, selected as the final track by Diplo for his BBC Radio 1 mix show, and posted as a favourite on the fan page of global trendsetting group the xx. This fall Annie Mac also fell in love with the song, playing it on her radio show, at many of her shows, and mentioning it in her interviews as one of her addictive tracks of the year. SAY MY NAME now has over half a million plays on Soundcloud, countless tribute videos with over 2 million YouTube views, and considered by many to be a favourite of 2012.
Toward the end of the year, Cyril released additional remixes that have become crowd favourites: a hauntingly melodious remix of UK Electropop duo Alpines single CHANCES, the atmospheric remix of Solange's LOSING YOU, an up-tempo, high-energy remix for US sister trio HAIM's DON'T SAVE ME, the addictive, sultry, remix of Jessie Ware's SWEET TALK, and the larger than life remix of the young songstress Gabrielle Aplin's PLEASE DON'T SAY YOU LOVE ME.
Let Cyril continue to feed your guilty pleasures with memorable shows & music for years to come.

DKDS are rising stars of the NYC underground, night creatures whose main goal in life is to make you stay up too late and dance ’til dawn. DKDS is made up of Scrap and Chris – two tall, dark cousins who hail from Seattle and New York, respectively. The two reunited in Brooklyn over a mutual love of jackin’ deep house and techno and formed a DJ duo; over the last couple years their back-to-back sets have made a serious mark on NYC nightlife, one debauched party at a time. The boys recently caught the attention of MeanRed, who made them residents of their Dark Disco party deep Downtown. They’re also hard at work on original tracks with the edgy-yet-suave vibe that is their signature. Don’t sleep… no, really.
