Zoran Relic emerged as a electronic outcome of a logic consequence from the urban mentality which floated by air channels as notes from London, Berlin and Detroit. He is trying to develop his own style by experimenting and even thinking about unlogic assets and using uncconventional methods, so that he could try to figure the other side of the sound objects that consead that point of gas in space called sound...

Perhaps one of Beethoven's most popular pieces-"Fur Elise" (translated into For Elise). The picture is one of Beethoven when he was a middle-age man (fairly old, but nowhere close to done as far as musical accomplishments are concerned). Thank you for watching.

Few artists in the music business reach the level of accomplishment and status that Kerri Chandler has achieved. He is known throughout the universe as one of the original creators of the deep house sound and his "basslines" are now legendary.
Kerri grew up in the New Jersey area during the days of the infamous Zanzibar club with resident DJ Tony Humpries. Kerri's father was a DJ as well, which gave Kerri a rich background in the origins of the New York Underground Sound (known also as "Garage" music). He made his DJ debut at the Rally Record Club in East Orange, New Jersey at the tender age of Thirteen.
Kerri eventually found himself intrigued with the production element in dance music and soon began to create his own grooves on his one man label, Express Records. In 1991, Atlantic Records signed his debut single, "SuperLover/Get It Off" and the rest is house music history. Despite his success, Kerri Chandler has always remained true to the spirit of the underground. When listening to tracks such as the "Atmosphere EP" on Shelter Records and the seminal, "A Basement, Redlight and A Feeling" album on Madhouse, one has to marvel at Kerri's ability to not compromise his unique sound for commercial gain.
Kerri Chandler is a vortex where tradition and innovation meet. Tradition as in the soulful roots of Jersey house, innovation as in the streamlined, sparse arrangements and shrewd use of technology. Kerri masters rhythm and space.
Kerri injects his free spirit into his productions. With a solid education in Garage grooves, Kerri takes vocals, rhythms and instruments and with uncanny precision pieces them together, delivering beautiful, monster jams. In the expanses of his breaks the odd counter rhythm will inexplicably appear for a second and then disappear, creating fleshy excitement, not mechanical repetition. His basslines go from heavy and heady to playful and quirky -- always deliriously intoxicating. His hooks are loving details like horn hits, washes of synthesizer or catchy choruses that emerge to create songs from a maddening bulldozer of brutal drive. Here the dreamer takes hold, transporting us into a dimension of seemingly endless travel...
Kerri is sure to continue to startle us as he has from the very beginning as with his first remix, the now-classic scratch on "Get It Off". His fusions, clamped to the beat of his unique, thundering kick drum, redefine house music at every turn.

It’s difficult to summarize Jay Haze’s ten-year musical career, but in concentrated form: producer, DJ and record label owner. Whether working in the studio or behind the decks in the club, he is a pro at getting people to react. Jay left Philadelphia in the early 00s and is now based in Berlin, also home of his house/techno record labels TuningSpork and Contexterrior. He DJs several times per year in the city’s famed Watergate club, and also holds a quarterly residency at Fabric, London – in addition to his stops throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America.
Jay has also released tracks and remixes on literally dozens of other labels, often under a variety of pseudonyms, such as Fuckpony (for BPitch, Get Physical and Cocoon) and Sub Version (for Soul Jazz). Apart from his solo work, Jay has collaborated with the likes of Ricardo Villalobos and Samim, and has remixed numerous other artists such as DJ Hell & P. Diddy, Gui Boratto and even Yann Tiersen’s theme from Amelie, which became a crossover hit. Haze’s productions constantly find their way into the sets of top-tier DJs like Richie Hawtin and M.A.N.D.Y.
Starting with his debut full-length Love for a Strange World (Kitty-Yo, 2005) and continuing with Love & Beyond (TuningSpork, 2008), Jay stepped outside of dance music into other realms such as pop, hip-hop and dubstep. His adventurous mix compilation Fabric47 (2009) brought immense praise, and it also launched his new campaign DJs for DRC to help victims in the war-torn Congo: he donated all his money from the CD sales toward the charity Merlin, and having encouraged a number of other DJs to donate money from gigs, aims to travel to the Congo to shoot a documentary and raise awareness. Still active on the music front, of course, Jay has just released the second Fuckpony album and has been focusing on crafting new sounds for other vocalists.
