EPISODE #065 BY JULIET SIKORA

5/30/2016

This beautiful creature stalks her prey at night. Music is her weapon, and beats are her bullets. Trumpet stabs and drum kicks for close-quarters combat. Juliet Sikora is going in for the kill.
Jumping headfirst off a bridge is probably a huge adrenaline rush, but definitely a stupid way to get your kicks and anyway, why bother? Because when this young lady is behind the decks, the rush is even greater. Just don't let her good looks fool you, because this girl knows how to control the floor. With a flick of the wrist she’ll spin her first disc. The whole crowd will roar in unison and everyone’ll be under her spell….You know it’s going to be another long night! 
Born in Strzelce Opolskie in Poland, Juliet has always had a passion for music. She learned how to play the piano at an early age and developed a taste for the electronic side of music while she was still in her teens. After leaving school she took up DJing, organized her own events and looked towards a career in music - be it behind the scenes or in the limelight. After she obtained a degree in Event Management, it looked like she could either. From city to city, club to club and long sessions in the recording studio - This girl never stops! How she even finds time to fit in her day job at her label Kittball Records, nobody knows. But she does, and like everything else in her life, she does it with a passion that is second to none. 
This passion is also reflected in her music. After teaming up with Tube & Berger to set up Kittball Records and releasing numerous tracks - including the amazing charity project “IT BEGAN IN AFRICA”, she took the global club scene by storm. After more recent releases like “IN YOU” together with Wild Culture or COUCOU” together with Flo Mrzdk, she went on to produce the single “COME ON NOW (SET IT OFF)” with Tube & Berger. A track that Pete Tong himself nominated as Essential Tune of the week and went on to sign the track to his FFRR label. 
This release is bringing huge international fame and her fan base is exploding! Expectedly the bookings are rolling in and the day job is now split between managing the label and studio work. Right now she’s putting the finishing touches to her latest number and getting ready to test it on the crowd at the weekend.

EPISODE #064 BY BEATAMINES

5/16/2016

Sometimes you are creating a declaration of love - automatically. Beatamines composed many of those lines for extraordinary dancing people, for electronic music and the possibility to express himself with tracks like „How Never“ or "Swaggin“. His tracks and remixes were released on MBF (Traumschallplatten), Bondage - Music, Kittball, Stil vor Talent and on his hombebase, David Keno’s imprint Keno Records. But Beatamines does not only work as a solo producer, he also releases tracks with his mate David Jach - each number got a place in the charts and Beatamines was elected to one of the best newcomers in the last two years.
Now the German nice guy is nearly booked up and he is on the way to being an honoured unique DJ, Liveact and Producer beyond Europe. Pascal Augner, that‘s the real name of Beatamines, waggles busy with his declarations of passion and writes new ones every day. He's packing the groove of a summer love into it, underlined with fat baselines, pregnant claps and chunky melodies.
2013 was a good and successful year for Pascal. He reinterpreted "The Planets" together with David Jach and the Dortmund Philharmonics (100 man strong orchestra) Gustav Holst. That was a very great honour for him, music remixing and re-writing for such a huge body of sound. Due to popular demand, the project „Groove Symphony" will be continued.
In the beginning of 2014 the restless Thuringia has established a new project with Mirco Niemeier called „Ektschn!“
Her tracks land on labels like Super Flu's "Sunset Handjob" or André Crom's OFF Recordings! 3, 2, 1 and Ektschn!
Catch him, if you can... and don't forget to eat your Beatamines!

EPISODE #063 BY NAKADIA

5/02/2016

Growing up without running water in a rural village in Thailand meant the harsh realities of a poor life left no chance for a career in electronic music. However, after being invited to Germany in 2002, one night clubbing changed all that and filled her with a spark that transformed her life into what it is today: NAKADIA - one of the world’s very few globally successful female electronic music artists. Fresh from the buzz of that night, Nakadia took turntables home to Thailand and started shaping her craft. 
Unguided by other DJs and with no club scene for inspiration, she practiced relentlessly to develop her own sound. It was only when she moved to the Thai island of Koh Samui in 2003 where she came into contact with a small electronic music scene and got some first practice in playing for European tourists. 
Nakadia’s first years as a DJ were all about the growth of her personal sound and style. By 2004, her first year as a full time DJ, she already performed 55 gigs across 12 countries. Over the next four years Nakadia found herself in the sounds of Deep House, Tech House and Techno. 
Ever since, this lovely young Thai girl has been bringing her underground sounds to the dance floors of legendary venues like “Watergate“ Berlin, “Cafe D Anvers“ Antwerp, “The Egg“ London, “D Edge“ Sao Paulo, “Lola“ Shanghai, and “Glow“ Bangkok, just to name a few. ANTS - one of Ibiza’s top events - heard about Nakadia and invited her for a first set at Ushuaia. After the incredible reaction, Nakadia is now part of the ANTS colony on Ibiza. 
With a huge portion of raw talent, fearless mixing, but most of all her incredible energy, she turns every doubter into a Nakadia-lover. Without a big label behind her name and no top manager pulling the strings, her success is purely self-made, based on the results she delivers both in the DJ booth as in the studio. In a time where labels matter more than anything, Nakadia proves that quality tunes and genuine love for music make the difference. 
The relentless pace of her touring made it hard for Nakadia to find studio time early in her career. Step-by-step she released first tracks in 2005 and 2008. But it wasn’t until 2012 when she chose to focus more on production before her tracks really took off. Nakadia scored her first big club hit during summer of 2013 with her “Check&Run” EP on Clarisse records. The illustrious TECHNASIA supported with a remix and this tune remained in the Beatport Techno top 40 for 12 weeks. 
During 2014 Nakadia devoted more time to the studio and the resulting EP’s will be available from October 2014 onwards. Her next highlight is a project with legendary GEORGE MOREL, scheduled for release on Get Physical Music at the end of 2014. With far over 100 high profile bookings across the world each year Nakadia is already going strong.... 
But these are just the opening chapters of a truly unique career that so far has been nothing short of a musical fairytale.
