EPISODE #084 BY NIKO SCHWIND

4/23/2018

The Berlin-based DJ and producer consistently demonstrates a deeply an- chored love for and close bond to house music – the art form he himself has tamed. As a DJ, he travels the globe since 2001, having played in Europe, Australia, Thailand, Brazil, the US and Mexico, and in his sets he creates a feeling of connectedness between himself and others, as well as within the crowd. 

His first music on Autist Records, the label on which he subsequently releases his debut LP, ‘The Autistic Disco’, in May 2009, gathers the attention of many top DJs, such as Jeremy P. Cauleld, Ivan Smagghe and Mendo. It is only a matter of time before Oliver Koletzki takes notice of Niko’s productions and his DJ skills. Said skills subsequently see him embark on a hectic touring schedule: whether it’s Sao Paulo’s D Edge, Sydney’s Spice Cellar, Zurich’s Hive, Paris’ Showcase, or Berlin’s Watergate – Niko’s energetic and precise sets thrill any international crowd, something he’s out to prove in 2014: while he’ll be touring Brazil in May, Niko will return to the US for a second time in July. 

In the spring of 2011 Niko releases his sophomore album, ‘Good Morning Midnight’, on Stil vor Talent. The LP features collaborations with vocalists and producers like Channel X, Fran or Oliver Koletzki. Again, big names support it: Seth Troxler, John Digweed and Butch express their admiration among others. 

2012’s ‘We Are The Future’ EP, which gathers four powerful, multi-facetted house tracks, continues the success story, as Niko updates his sound. While the title track climbs into the Beatport Deep House top 20 and is Stil vor Talent’s fth best-sold track of the year, praise by Monika Kruse, Mr. G or M.A.N.D.Y. speaks for itself. The following year then sees the release of two EPs on Oliver Koletzki’s new Light My Fire label, as well as ‘Say What’ on Katermukke and a heavy-hitting remix for Lexer on Der Turnbeutel. 

On Stil vor Talent, NIKO SCHWIND now presents the fruit of his labour in the from of his third album: ‘Grippin’ World’ captivates the listeners with its versatility and coherence, and kidnaps them to a world of sound, made up of elegantly reduced grooves, organic arrangements and accessible vocal-melodies. “One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” – on ‘Gripping World’, NIKO SCHWIND clearly emphasises that music is the emotional extension of the heart.

EPISODE #083 BY LELE SACCHI

3/26/2018

Behind the decks since 1995 and with a whole life dedicated to the world of music, Lele Sacchi is now internationally recognised as one of the icons of Italy's electronic, house and alternative music scene. 

Over these twenty years, he has completed a round-the-world trip DJing at some of the best clubs, events and festivals there are. His style combines house music with his roots and influences, regularly incorporating Italo disco, soul, post-punk and dub into the mix. In the studio, he recorded initially as Boogie Drama and more recently under his own name (releasing tracks for labels such as Internasjonal, Moodmusic, Soul Clap, Systematic, 20-20 Vision, Lyase and Get Physical). 

For many years, Lele was the driving force behind Milan's most lauded clubbing temples such as Magazzini Generali in the 00’s decade or the resurgence of legendary club Tunnel from 2010. 

Lele’s span within electronic music goes on: every weekend he runs Radio2 Inthemix on state broadcaster Rai, is one of the founders and directors of the Elita company (mainly known for its annual festival during Design Week) and teaches the History of Dance Music at the prestigious Istituto Europero di Design (IED). 

Sacchi is also regularly invited to DJ and do soundesign for style brands and exhibitions (routinely for Trussardi and consulting for the likes of Adidas, Timberland, G-Star, Toyota, Mercedes etc.) and sits as a judge at the world’s first ever DJ talent show, TOP DJ, on Sky TV. 

All these things and more are the reason Italy’s biggest newspaper La Repubblica’s supplement ‘TuttoMilano’ put Lele among the 25 people that forged Milan in the past 25 years.
