The past six years have seen Oliver Dollar’s name gradually build to a recognizable staple in house music. The Berlin born and based producer has gained acknowledgment through a series of solid releases on labels such as Play It Down, Rekids and Front Room Recordings. Remix credits can be found amongst the most famed independents; including Greco Roman, Rekids and Exploited as well as majors: Polydor and Ministry of Sound. His killer tracks like Doin’ Ya Thang, Granulated Soul and Hoes have become dancefloor staples and he continues to keep butts moving release after release after release.
Hard earned respect from your peers is a rare commodity but Huxley, aka Michael Dodman, has it in spades. Since his late teens he’s been producing, seeing initial underground success as a garage producer before his sound partly mutated towards a deeper, house-based sound in the past few years. Collaborations with old mate Ethyl for the then hot-as-hell Cecille imprint in 2009 showed a producer receiving massive support for what instantly seemed like a fully developed sound. Since then, Huxley has delivered releases for an enviable roster of labels (Tsuba, Morris Audio, Fear of Flying, Hypercolour and 20:20 Vision for starters) and has stayed true to his robust, bass-led strain of house music that reflects his formative interests in UK and US Garage, with critics, punters and peers lapping up each release and remix.
Milo’s array of work maintains an artistic versatility and plurality. He makes music for the people. As a producer, he has conjured up Hadeanbeats for vogue rap sensation Cakes da Killa as well as collaborations with cult minimal-techno beatsmith, Afriqua. Focused on testing the spatial limits of sound engineering, Milohas composed his music in Wave Field Synthesis, a recent technology that creates three-dimensional audio holograms. He exhibited his composition “Fissions” with this technology at Sónar Barcelona and the the Venice Biennale. Stylistically, Milo draws on a number of influences; from Debussy to disco, Jeremih to jackin’ house. His recordings are typified by deconstructed digital and analog textures layered over organic instrumentation, all backed by infectious beats and the continualusage of his own sultry warped vocals.
James Marlon Magas is a longtime music producer, active in techno, electro, noise and film soundtrack. He favors analog production and a raw approach. In 1992, Magas co-founded the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based band Couch and the Bulb Records label, with Peter Larson. In 1995, Magas relocated to Chicago, forming the no wave band Lake Of Dracula, with multi-instrumentalist Weasel Walter. In 2000, Magas became solo electronic artist MAGAS and started the record store, Weekend Records and Soap, with wife Bridgette Wilson. In 2015, Magas releases Heads Plus on his new imprint, Midwich.
