BOA RADIO SHOW 027 | BAS MOOY AND BRIXTON
Bas has released countless tracks on Planet Rhythm, Roots, Fine Audio Recordings, Naked Lunch, Impact Mechanics, Submissions, Patterns, FK Recordings and of course his own imprints Audio Assault and Arms. Brixton is the world famous Holtzplatten label boss.
During the last decade Rotterdam home-based dj/producer Bas Mooy (1976) has been active on many fronts in the techno scene. Heavily influenced by a city that breaths industrial strength twenty-four-seven, he gradually found his way into creating an unique dark sound, which lead him to the forefront of the European techno scene.
In 2002 he kickstarted the already legendary Audio Assault recordlabel with label partner Jeroen Liebregts, which resulted in the birth of sublabel Arms one year later. Since then the Audio Assault family built a strong and constantly growing fan-base worldwide, showcasing an impressive catalogue with a constant output of stand out twelve inches, setting the standard for today’s quality dark techno.
For many years he has been a member of the Rotterdam underground collective ‘Strictly Techno’, creators of over a hundred legendary parties since 1995. Bas has played at many ‘top of the bill’ clubs and festivals around the globe and is a regular guest at the highly respected Awakenings parties in Holland.
Brixton was born on the 24th May 1971 in Oppeln. In 1983 he moved with his family to the Rheinland in Germany. Highly influenced by the first electronic disco sounds, he ended up playing his first DJ-set at Space-Club in 1988 to a large and very inspired audience of clubbers. In this moment Brixton knew that electronic music would be with him for the rest of his life. In the following years his DJ-sets took all the well-known European clubs by storm. Finally, in 1990, after several successful years behind the turntables, Brixton brought out his first record. Not long after he brought out other records on diverse record labels (Analog Records USA, Drop Bass Network, U-Turn and Electric Music Foundation).
By 1994 Brixton was ready to go his own way and it was in this year that he founded the labels Holzplatten, X0X Track. First he had a few releases, but in time 'Holzplatten' became a platform for international DJs and artists in the German speaking regions.
In 1997, on his Radioshow 'Subsonic' ( broadcast weekly on Evosonic ), he would introduce the newest Electronic Dance Music releases. Brixton produced and played Techno of the widest variety, from banging Acid-Techno to the more modern, simply structured Minimal-Techno.
In 1998, after some 30 releases on his label 'Holzplatten', Brixton founded two additional labels: Kazumi and Simple Muzik. With these two labels, Brixton wanted and wants to give new and young artists the chance to gain recognition for their innovative music. Due to the growing demand on these labels, meanwhile Brixton unfortunately didn't find so enough time to produce his own records anymore.
But he's back in the pits and released his very first longplayer 'eTechno.de' on Holzplatten in 2004. The Album contains 8 tracks and 8 locked grooves. Even in this year he released the 'Holzplatten Zehn' Mix-Cd featuring 48 Holzplattentracks. The last physical release on Holzplatten dated September 2006 with Brixton’s 'Wir lieben Techno' EP. From now on all the labels release digital on beatport.com and other digital distributions. Go for www.elementon.com and see the variety of the output. Back to the early days and up to the present Brixton believes in real Techno music and still plays only this unique sound. Absolutely not influenced by the minimal hype he keeps up the techno spirit with his Liveacts and DJ sets.

BOA RADIO SHOW 026 | FELIX KROECHER AND DJ 3000
Felix's name is synonymous with techno made in Germany. His mix style is surgically precise, energizing the music into what seems like perpetual motion. DJ3000 is from Detroit and runs Motech Records. Tonight we have both of them of the show.
If you ask most producers and DJ's about their musical upbringing, most, if not all, will point to the influence of their parents and their relatives. DJ 3000 is no different. Born and raised in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck, DJ 3000 was inundated with both the sights and sounds of his neighborhood, a highly ethnic area of Detroit, as well as with the influence of the music of his parent's native Albanian background. This diverse collection of influence shaped the make-up of both DJ 3000 and the vision of the Motech Records label.
Founded in 2001, Motech Records takes the vision and influence provided to him by Detroit and his parent's immigration from Yugoslavia, DJ 3000 has become known for creating a new hybrid breed of Techno/Electro/Funk interspersed with the soul of Albanian and Middle Eastern rhythms.
Through his own releases, and through collaborations and contributions from some of the best up-and-coming producers across the globe, Motech Records has forged its own unique identity. Some projects, both present and upcoming, of note for DJ 3000 and Motech have included "Migration" – Franki's first full length album on Submerge Recordings, "Blood & Honey" his follow up full length release. "Broken Research" is Motech's first compilation effort, acting as a showcase for the global spectrum of producers involved in the label's success. DJ 3000 has collaborated with such artists as Gary Martin, Gerald Mitchell, and Ursula Rucker as well as being part of numerous remix projects for artists across the globe, most notably remixing "People are People" for electronic music pioneers Depeche Mode.
Motech Records, through its music, as well as through its mission of providing a voice for the under-represented and over looked, will continue to expose the world to the sounds and beliefs of the working class producer and DJ.
What makes his sound outstanding is that it moves the masses without overwhelming them, drawing its strength from the lightest of touches.
The effortlessness with which Felix Kröcher masters his craft has made him a leading figure for a new generation of DJs. Felix grew up to the sound of Frankfurt, the city he was born in 1983. Whilst other kids were more interested in bikes or computers, Felix acquired his first decks at the age of 10 and played his first gigs in public at 16. Having finished his school career, he began a traineeship at the Sunshine Live Youth Radio station.
With his growing network his ideas and horizons also broadened. Until this day Felix Kröcher can count 61 releases to his name, including artist albums and EPs, remixes and a DVD - “The Live Collection”. It comes as no surprise that Felix Kröcher has firmly established himself as one of the top DJs on the European festival circuit.
The electronic music scene is home to a new generation of young DJs who have not only picked up the torch from the old guard but have their own fresh way of doing things. Felix Kröcher is one of them.
