Bawrut – Ep01

Oct 6 2015

Bawrut (used to go under the moniker Scuola Furano) has relocated from Italy to Madrid and also started his own imprint Silencio, the first offering “Ep01” dropped October 1st and comes from the label boss himself. The EP has already seen support from the likes of Jackmaster, JD Twitch, Fabrizio Mammarella, Tornado Wallace, Marvin & Guy, Bleaker, Ana Helder and Ian F etc.

The A-side track “Cicquita” is a superb 303 laden teched out number with a funky and seriously hypnotizing vocal sample.

The 2015 edition of the ever improving Sonus Festival in Croatia will take place August 16th – 20th at Zrce Beach on Pag Island.

Sonus is one of the biggest electronic festivals in Croatia and the line-up for 2015 includes top names such as: Jackmaster, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Jamie Jones, Ricardo Villalobos, John Digweed, Len Faki, Mathias Ka- den live, Marco Carola, Monika Kruse, Rødhåd, Seth Troxler, Ten Walls live and The Martinez Brothers etc.

Before Monday Comes is a new video series by Boxfresh and Noisey where British DJ Dismantle travels the world to check out club life and club culture in various cities such as Stockholm, New York, London, Berlin and Beijing to meet up with local dj’s, promoters and try out the club scene.

The first episode sees Dismantle meet Kornel Kovacs, Lina Lundemo, Y+M along with British dj Jackmaster (who played at Berns Gallery 2.35:1). The second episode airs July 4th and will also focus on Stockholm.

“This mix is dedicated to the art of the warm-up set. The Colors night at Trouw in Amsterdam recently organised an event where Jack and I were booked alongside Oneman and Cinnaman, a line-up consisting of specialist DJs who don’t produce playing for the duration of the night.

Jack and I had been talking about how rare it was to walk into a club and see DJs building up a set and genuinely warming up the crowd, understandable given that every DJ wants to make an impact and make sure they’re remembered at the end of the night. With that in mind we put ourselves forward to attempt to play the kind of warm-up we’d like to hear more often.”

Young DJs who have the 10pm slot time: Please. PLEASE. Listen. Learn. Put away the 135 bpm for a few more hours, remember that it’s never a bad idea to play Prince, and relax.

A thoroughbred entertainer and impeccable selector, Jackmaster’s sets range from bass to boogie, raw Chicago house to 80s wedding classics. No wonder he was just named “Best Breakthrough DJ” by DJ Mag. Here Jackmaster is teaming up with his Numbers labelmate Deadboy who has been stirring things up with his bass drenched invasion of the borderlands between house and UK garage. This was recorded last month at the conclusion of the RBMA World Tour when they took over the biggest ferris wheel in Europe, the London Eye.
