Style Of Eye

Style Of Eye
In the early 1990s, working from a studio in the northern-most parts of Sweden, Linus Eklow laid the foundations for what is now known as Style Of Eye. 'Right Now!' was his first release on Derrick Carter's Classic Music Company- and it received a major response from both the dance press and tastemakers alike. It didn't take long before the house and techno community at large picked up on what Linus was doing. With subsequent Style Of Eye releases such as 'Gioco' and 'H-bomb' and 'We Got You', Linus broke through onto dancefloors all over the world. His releases being played by such well-known names as Tiefschwarz, John Dahlback, Claude VonStroke, Tiga, and Laurent Garnier amongst many others... Linus is one to look out for in 2008, a year that starts off with an E.P on Dirtybird and a mix-compilation for Om Records, which is a good opportunity to check out his own mix of house and techno. Two more E.P's to come out on Pickadoll before introducing his first artist-album, that will see its light in April 2008 on Pickadoll Records. With all this lined-up and a steadily building a reputation as a dj, he is certain to become the "important future star" that DJ Magazine predicted he would be.

Shinedoe

Shinedoe
Shinedoe started performing as a dancer at an early age of 15. Inspired by her African heritage and influenced by music of the early 1980s, she performed at clubs, video-clips, and bands like Quazar and Warp, to name a few. Her mission was to translate the music through her dance movement. After performing for 4 years as a dancer throughout Europe, she decided to stop and focus on other things such as buying electronic music records for personal use, and producing mix tapes for friends. Her music then was a mixture of US garage, Detroit techno and house. As a result of the mix tapes, her first gig happened at Club "Ja" in Amsterdam. She seriously started mixing music at the age of 19; she got her debut booking in 1995 at the VIP-club (Paradiso) in Amsterdam, where she rocked the place and became resident DJ. Also, she was offered a residency at Club Stalker in Harlem. Ever since 1995, she played at all the big festivals, clubs and parties in the Netherlands, from Dance Valley to Awakenings. Also promoters from abroad got interested in her DJ-sets, which resulted in bookings in various countries, such as Germany, Moscow, Spain, Italy, Sweden, China, Bosnia, Israel, Slovenia, Croatia, to name but few. Parallel, from around 1997 until 2000 she played drum 'n bass under the pseudonym "Black Magic Queen". After a while she decided to focus on tech-house and techno only. Shinedoe spins a variety of funky groove minimal techno-sets with tech-house, Chicago, acid and Detroit influences. She likes to keep her sets interesting by combining different flows. The crowd adores her because she knows how to rock the place. In 2001, she started her own night called "INMOTION" at clubs Paradiso and Amuse in Amsterdam, where she has been inviting quality (inter)national DJs to perform. 2004 saw her most important evolution. Her debut release 'Dillema' on 100% Pure was immediately a classic. "Dillema" was the 2004 summer anthem of the Cocoon club - Ibiza, loved by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth, Luciano ... Her productions are played and supported around the globe. She also runs her own label "Intacto Records", collaboration with 100% Pure owner Dylan Hermelijn. This label has been launched in September 2004.

After having bought two turntables and a mixer, he began deejayin' Hip Hop in 1992. The deejay culture of the Hip Hop movement was his link to electronic music. He started deejaying at different clubs all around Switzerland and became resident at the world famous Club Trax @ Rohstofflager in Zürich and got well known for his 3-deck mixing skills and sets blurring the lines between Techno, House- and Detroit-classics. He made his first sound experiments with a sampler in 1994 and from then on continuously built up his own studio because of his avid interest in electronic sounds. An introduction to Stefan Riesen from Phont Music in 1997 led to his first release as Soul Mate on Phont Music. He then travelled to Japan for deejaying in 1999 and recorded the ?Double Exposure Vol. 1? EP with DJ Shufflemaster in Tokyo, again for Phont Music. In the year 2000 he was contacted for an EP by In-tec records where he released the very successful Alien Entertainment EP? which was hammered by the likes of Jay Denham, Claude Young, Jeff Mills and Laurent Garnier and attracted attention from press and listeners worldwide. In 2001 'Dolls for a diva' was released on the highly acclaimed Music Man label in January, the start of a strong relationship with this label from Belgium. New EP?s followed on Dave Angel's Rotation (Vertigo EP), Jay Denham?s Black Nation/Sector 616 (Dancing manual EP), Steve Bicknell's Cosmic (as Karakter), Ongaku (Lorraine EP) and Phont Music (Cut Back EP).

After the Outerworld EP on Music Man and several remixes in early 2002 the highly acclaimed debut Mix-Compilation by Deetron has been released in June by Music Man, which gained a lot of praise from press worldwide and gave his worldwide DJ-Schedule a boost by making it as hectic as never before.

The anticipated cooperation with Samuel L. Session released in July on SLS, remixes for Ben Sims, Damon Wild and Gary Martin amongst others highlighted his production work.
