    Clockwork (Hot Creations / Life & Death Brooklyn)
    Francesco Leali and Federico Maccherone aka Clockwork met at the age of 15 both growing up in the suburbs of Milan. Francesco’s music interests and qualifications range from twelve years studying percussion at the Milanese conservatory, to a degree in music marketing and artist promotion. Federico on the other hand started as a label founder, later deciding to follow his true passion moving to New York to start playing in underground clubs immediately making a name for himself. Their music is driven by anything varying from ’80s Disco music to chugging Techno. Their sound is mainly characterized by bouncy and decisive analog bass lines combined to rhythmic drum patterns, all mainly inspired by music from the ’60s ’70s and ’80s.

  • SESSION 896: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 01.08.11

    Mixed by Beg To Differ (aka My Cousin Roy and Nick Chacona), Matthew Moffe

    My Cousin Roy (The Wurst Music Co.)
    Roy Dank (aka My Cousin Roy) is the mind behind the “Wurst Edits,” imprint. The New York label, which launched in 2006 boasted radical reworkings of yesteryear’s clandestine disco by the likes of label head Roy Dank aka My Cousin Roy and his talented friends, including Runaway, who went on to produced acclaimed releases for DFA and Rekids; the multi-talented producer, DJ and illustrator Doug Lee aka Lee Douglas, Douglas Sound and one-half of TBD (with Justin Vandervolgen) and Stallions (with Lovefingers); and Eamon Harkin, part of the NYC party juggernaut that is Sunday Best and Mister Saturday Night. The edits received support from esteemed DJs as far as wide as 2ManyDJs, Carl Craig, Harvey, Erol Alkan, James Murphy, Simian Mobile Disco, and Tim Sweeney, amongst many others. In early 2009, Roy teamed up with designers Josh Clancy and Travis Stearns to take the label’s visual aeshetic to the proverbial next level. Come July of that year, the label evolved into The Wurst Music Co with the release of Brennan Green’s My First House, quite possibly the cult producer’s most dance floor savvy work to date. Wurst has gone from strength to strength since with releases from Neurotic Drum Band, Reade Truth, Great Weekend, and Ulysses. The Wurst Has Yet To Come…

    Nick Chacona (Hector Works)
    Nick Chacona is one of New York’s disco-house mainstays and over the course of his 15-year career as a DJ and producer has become one of the city’s most respected underground talents within its vibrant dance music scene. In a DJ capacity, Nick is as versatile as you will find. He began spinning over 15 years ago, strictly playing reggae but shortly thereafter fell in love with House & Disco. Never one to let the crowd down, Nick’s sets are filled with energy, finesse, and diversity flowing from Nu Disco, House, Techno, Italo and classics—whatever is required in the moment. He has played across the US from NY to San Francisco, as well as Brazil, Germany, Spain, Poland, Romania, Belgium, Sweden, Serbia, Holland, and the UK. His production skills are just as dynamic as his style behind the decks and over the course of his career has spread his skills far and wide and garnered a lengthy discography under his belt. Over the years his productions have grown to encompass elements of sound from across the world of dance music, melding the arpeggiated sounds of Rimini, the trackiness of Chicago, minimalism of Berlin, and dubbed out vibes of Kingston, Jamaica sometimes in the same track. He began producing in 1999 under the Version Eternal moniker for NY label Homestyle Cooking. Since that time Nick has gone on to release tracks on renowned labels Mood Music, 2020 Vision, Ben Watt’s Buzzin Fly, Saw, Dogtown, Bearfunk, and the inaugural release for Prins Thomas’s Internasjonal.

    Matthew Moffre (Drrtyhaze)
    Matthew Moffre, a former (and self-acclaimed) “Shelter head” has been a staple on the scene as a DJ for roughly 18 years. Best known as one-half of the Drrtyhaze duo, Moffre, alongside his production partner have been actively producing since 2006, currently boasting a lengthy discography of original productions and remixes. At the turn of the New Year the team has a slew of exciting new releases on respected international labels such as UK’s Redux and Under the Shade as well as Germany’s Tirk and Redux imprints. In addition to their avid music making the two are frequent guests at parties such as the legendary classic school house-based Play It Loud series. When running solo Moffre goes under the Love Tempo moniker, which he also dubs his monthly party now nearing its one-year mark. His tracks and mixes can be found onwww.beatsandwords.com.

  • SESSION 895: THE BANDWAGON 03.16.11

    Mixed by Taimur Agha,Anthony Parasole(Deconstruct/halcyon) & Joey Anderson (Inmeg)

    Anthony Parasole
    Born and raised in Brooklyn, Anthony Parasole has had a lifelong love affair with electronic music. Listening to radio shows playing the early dance tracks from New York, Chicago, and Detroit that really perked up his ears. His earliest experiences at the New York clubs and Storm Raves really blew his mind wide open. Not content to just be another party kid, Anthony began scouring the record stores for all of his favorite tracks. From the late-80?s to the mid- 90?s, Parasole was also huge into hip-hop. His engulfment in this gritty New York street-music is an influence on his style to this day.

    From 2003 to 2007, Anthony was a buyer at the Halcyon record store. Through Halcyon, a real pillar of the scene in NYC, Parasole made many contacts, and of course, multiplied the size of his record collection by carefully selecting all the best records from the store. He threw the “New Jack City” party at APT with his co-workers at Halcyon, bringing in The Martinez Brothers for the first NYC gig, Slam Mode, MkL, Adultnapper, Nick Chacona, Todd Sines, Brennan Green, and many more. This party really increased Anthony’s exposure in New York, and led to many gigs at bigger clubs, including opening slots for Derrick May, Cajmere, and Layo and Bushwacka. 2008 was a great year for Anthony. He launched the Deconstruct record label with his partner Levon Vincent. DEC-001 “Invisible Bitchslap” by Levon Vincent sold out in one week, and immediately put the label on the map, being charted by Marcel Dettmann, Shed, and Jan Krueger. Hardwax and other influential stores are clamoring for more! Parasole also founded the House-N-Home loft-party series with partner Bryan Kasenic. They’ve already thrown successful parties with Jus-Ed, Brothers’ Vibe, DJ Qu, Fred P, and Adultnapper, and will play host to Move D and other artists from the cutting edge of house and techno music in 2009. Anthony is currently working his own original productions due to come out later this year!

    Mixed by Human, Rock-N-Ruin, Lifeline, Winter


    Rack-N-Ruin (Black Butter | UK)

    Considered by iDJ magazine as “One of the most exciting producers working in the London bass scene…” Rack-N-Ruin is a formidable force in  underground dance music. Working at various tempos with a heady grip of established artists and remix producers, Rack-N-Ruin is a dj/producer on the move. Known for carving his way neatly through haunting electro-organs and dramatic synth-stabs, his production seems to demand ‘hands in the air’ moments at every turn, while his genre-crossing DJ sets call for all out dance floor warfare. With clean, super solid productions,  hard hitting breaks ranging in tempo from 100-140, serious sub-bass weight and the intertwined, unmistakable raw elements of Reggae and Dubstep that have permeated electronic music of late, Rack-N-Ruin comes correct. With a relentless release schedule, Rack-N-Ruin’s remix credits include Nas & Damien Marley, I Blame Coco, Aggro Santos, The Nextmen feat. Groove Armada & Ms. Dynamite, Zero 7, and The Freestylers. His recent releases have harnessed the support of BBC’s Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, Kissy Sell-Out, Toddla T, Dj Zinc, Fake Blood, Shy FX, Jack Beats, Boy 8-Bit, and many more. With future projects line up including collaborations with Island Records, Ministry Of Sound, Southern Fried Records,  Fat! Records, MC Navigator, Slarta John (Basement Jaxx) , new vocalist Jessie Ware, and many more established vocalists and artists, Rack-N-Ruin is on the fast track. Armed with an arsenal of exclusive dubs, Rack-N-Ruin is setting out on US and EU tours, hitting hard in the streets, the clubs and on air.
