Sunday 20th April (HOLIDAY EVE)
◆ KOLOMBO [Loulou Records/Bunny Tiger/OFF Recordings/Kompakt – BE] ◆
Olivier Grégoire is a prolific and well renowned producer and DJ from Belgium.
He has truly mastered the art of modern production, and over the years has experimented with many dance music genres through various pseudonyms, leading to a huge discography that includes releases on some of the world's finest electronic imprints.
Under his massive KOLOMBO moniker he has had many solid releases and remixes on labels such as Kompakt, 2DIY4, Warung, Noir Music, Turbo, Eskimo, Future Classic, Systematic and Boxer amongst others. Consequently, he is busy touring worldwide, playing his mixture of house and disco and enjoys loyal followings in Brazil, Mexico and Russia.
In addition to this Olivier is busy running his own label Loulou Records, together with his partner Jerome, with whom he produces and DJ’s worldwide as LOULOU PLAYERS. The label has a firm house music policy with a knack of scouting future talents and gets strong support from the likes of MANDY, Richy Ahmed, Solomun, Ivan Smagghe, H.O.S.H, Wally Lopez and Chlöé.
Lastly, he's also been creating more leftfield electronic music since 2008 with Brussels dance-music pioneer Geoffroy Mugwump. They have caused a stir with their killer MUGWUMP 12's and remixes for Kompakt, Gigolo, R&S, Cocoon, Throne Of Blood, Misericord, International Feel, Permanent Vacation and Endless Flight. After months of hard work, the forthcoming Mugwump debut album that features special guest vocalists is now ready to be unleashed.
Hard work, consistency, open-mindedness and excellent technical skills are the key ingredients for Kolombo's continued success within dance music.
◆ MONTE [Jeudi Records – DE] ◆
When a child builds his own drums using pots and pans and plays them almost every day, it’s a sure sign that music is the right path to set him on. Graduating as a Drummer and Composer/Arranger, Monte found his way at a very early age.
Making music for the Demo Scene using Trackers where his first encounter with nowadays "vintage computers" providing him with all the sounds he needed to form his ideas into music. His passion brought him to Hamburg where he found himself producing/co-producing and mixing for a whole host of artists.
Monte takes you back to the “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Miami Vice” aesthetic, but with a deep and solid funk groove lurking beneath. An absolute synth freak able to make any sound you could possibly think of almost in seconds on an array of devices, Monte also finds time to fill in as a professional drummer.
Since 2008 Monte was drawn to the JEUDI Events at Hamburg’s BAALSAAL club, which eventually led him to become part of their first "JEUDI´s FRIENDS EP".
With "TRUE" - a tune which triumphantly took the top spot in the Beatport Deep House Charts – under his belt, and worldwide recognition rising fast, Monte is certainly one to keep on your radar.
