This event is 21 and over
Jonas Rathsman born in 1980 and raised far from urban vanity, neon lights and contemporary club culture in a small village in Western Sweden. Music was always central in his adolescence, but the true passion for music would come later in life. After becoming a household name at the age of 18 organizing parties in Gothenburg, he decided to turn to music production. Flash forward to last year, after deciding to step away from close friend DJ Nibc and their project Stuffa, Jonas decided to expose himself further to the industry by abandoning all pseudonyms and releasing his work under his own name. The result of this process was his debut EP "Tobago", which was released on French Express in December 2011. As a creative at heart, Jonas Rathsman is also the co-owner and producer behind the collective and fashion brand Uniforms for the Dedicated. He is currently scheduled to tour in Europe and visit some of club music´s most prestigious venues. His music is getting more recognizing by the day for its organic and playful flair, stimulating vocals and classic club flow.
Moon Boots entered the world in the mid-1980s via Cape Canaveral. After years of service as the preferred footwear of celebrity astronauts (notably Tom Hanks), Moon Boots came to life during a classified experiment aboard the International Space Station. Little is known of what actually transpired aboard the shuttle, but in short, Moon Boots became a sentient creature, equipped with reason, intuition, and groove. Before long, he grew tired of working for the space-military-industrial complex and found solace in the soothing sounds of underground disco and R&B boogie records. He knew it was only of matter of time before he was hung up like so many boots before him. He abandoned the program and used his savings to build a studio in an unnamed location, where he is currently working.
Bound together with oozing soul and moody bass-lines, Isaac Tichauer's productions splice together classic and contemporary house concepts. A classically trained pianist and heavily influenced by the Detroit house scene, Isaac orchestrates a deep progressive energy in his music through detailed synth work, melancholy vocals and classic lead elements from Rhodes to strings.
In July 2013, Isaac was signed to FRENCH EXPRESS (USA) and debuted with his critically acclaimed full length album, "Devotion”, a release that gave the world a captivating first glance at Isaac’s production muscle and lengthy infatuation with the genre. A compelling first effort for a person born completely deaf and now living with just one working ear.
Continuing his “exploration of classic sounds”, Isaac’s released his club hit “I Forgive You”, and more recently the “Take Over You” EP in May 2013 that saw Isaac’s compositions reach new heights enjoying regular play on BBC Radio One and Triple J Australia.
Now residing in Berlin, Isaac works as a producer full time dedicating his time to a host of brand new productions and continuing his celebrated mixtape series.
