Martijn Ten Velden
After launching their inaugural compilation mixed by Kid Massive recently, Kinky aren’t slowing down and have a huge line-up confirmed for April. Expect more fine and uplifting house music in London’s specially designed audio visual paradise that is matter from Funkerman, Martijn Ten Velden, MYNC Project and DBN.
Dutchman Funkerman teamed up with friend Raf and fellow Dutch DJ/producer Fedde le Grand to create Flamingo Recordings, a house and electronic-tech label that is currently one of the hottest imprints in the world. Over the past 4 years Funkerman and Flamingo Recordings have been behind such hits as Put Your Hands Up For Detroit, The Creeps, Speed Up and 3 Minutes To Explain. Not only that but, as far as DJ diaries go, Funkerman’s is fit to bursting point so much in demand are his skills for controlling a dance floor.
Perhaps best known for his hit record I Wish You Would, Martijn Ten Velden’s been at the forefront of the house and minimal/electro scene for the most-part of the 2000s and has had hits on labels like Toolroom Trax, Nocturnal Groove and more.
MYNC Project is Mark Brown and Nick Corelli. The duo have been DJing together and rocking dance floors for years with their own brand of quality underground house; from dirty, partywise, jackin' tracks to electronic influenced house. Known for their standard 4 decks and 2 mixer shows – along with innumerable effects units - they take DJing beyond simply playing other people's music into the realms of musical creation and live performance, twisting pre-recorded sounds into new and original dancing spells.
DBN, a mash-up of three artists, musicians and DJs with a musical background and experience of DJing for over 15 years, they started together to produce own tracks in 2004 and have remixed the likes of John Dahlback d have had international releases on labels like WePLAY, Ministry Of Sound, Paradise, Joia, Pickadoll, Defected and Positiva.
If you can’t wait for all that, though, don’t fear - get yourself a copy of the Kinky compilation mixed by Kid Massive to tide you over and get you in the mood!
