Bells & Whistles (As You Like It / Desert Hearts/ Four Sweaters)
As You Like It (AYLI) is the result of a shared taste for quality electronic music, late nights and experiences that focus on cutting-edge sounds by today’s most driven artists, while striving for and acknowledging timelessness.
Kim Ann Foxman
For the past few years Kim Ann Foxman has been brewing a cult club following across the globe; crisscrossing everywhere from Japan to Cologne and Chicago, she has established herself as one of the most sought after DJ’s, and artists in the house scene. Splitting her time between her home in New York City’s East Village and her globetrotting schedule she’s released a single, Creature / What You Need, while her remixes bring her loyal dance followers to the floor, her infectious yet soulful DJ sets intoxicate dance floors everywhere. After collaborating with Hercules and Love Affair for 2 albums, she decided to part ways and focus on her own personal work proving the old saying that ‘in order to skyrocket, you must let go’
Young Marco (Dekmantel / Rush Hour)
There was a time when Marco Sterk a.k.a. Young Marco’s talents as a DJ and
producer were among Amsterdam’s best-kept secrets. For well over a decade, he plied his trade, largely unheralded, on the city’s bustling, underground dance music scene.
It was here, via several now infamous residencies, that he learnt his craft,
gaining a reputation for ballsy, genre-defying eclecticism, playing sets that
joined the dots between everything from tropical rhythms, afro gems and
quirky Middle Eastern disco, to lost proto-house, throbbing techno and
These days, the Dutchman’s talents are widely known around the World. His
position as a crate digger, record collector and infamous party-starter now guarantees a packed schedule of gigs in Europe, North America and beyond. His passion for working a dancefloor with “strange music” and “unclassics” is renowned, and it’s this that makes his sets so special.
This humid, off-kilter obsession with the inspired and unusual has become a
hallmark of Marco’s music, too. Once a key part of the Rush Hour family – the
legendary Amsterdam label releasing a number of his early singles – in 2011
he made his debut on Lovefingers’ highly regarded ESP Institute label. His
first two EPs for the label set out his now-trademark style, and won support
from the likes of Dixon and James Murphy, amongst others, along the way.
It’s perhaps unsurprising that a string of remix requests followed, leading to
now classic reworks for the likes of Heatsick, Joakim, Francis Bebey and Soft
Rocks. His 2013 remix of Tony G’s “Dreams”, a killer chunk of blissful new age deep house, became one of the most in-demand and sought after records of that year.
In 2014 his most accomplished studio work to date was released, his debut
album Biology on ESP Institute. Wonderfully picturesque, melodious, humid and glassy-eyed, it received rave reviews and confirmed his status as one of electronic music’s truly unique voices.
The same year also saw the release of Clouds, a magical collaborative full length written and produced in a weekend with Italian ambient pioneer Gigi Masin and British artist Jonny Nash. Credited to Gaussian Curve and released by Amsterdam’s Music From Memory label, it was the unfeasibly beautiful sound of three like-minded musicians working towards a shared goal.
Further studio material will follow later in 2015, but for now Marco is
concentrating on spreading his love of weird, wonderful and eccentric music in
basements, warehouses and clubs the World over.
