Here's a little information on our featured artists..
**Ian O'Donovan** (Bedrock, Restructured, EevoNext)
"Ian O'Donovan works with 'emotions'. From his driving tech numbers to the deepest of house via grand progressive tracks, Ian's music always plays on the listeners feelings. His use of melody and uplifting chord structures is polished and its this skill that has seen him release work for Vince Watson's Bio label, Darko Esser's Wolfskuil and of course John Digweed's Bedrock".
- Adam Carter
After being discovered by Laurent Garnier a few years back, Ian O'Donovan's music has gone from strength to strength. With constant support and plays from some of the top djs in the world such as Laurent Garnier, John Digweed, Dave Clarke etc., Ian's tracks have found their way on to labels such as Bedrock, EMI, Connaisseur and Wolfskuil to name a few.
As Ian continues to tour Europe and beyond, watch out for upcoming releases on great labels as well as collaborations with some big names in 2013.
**Greg Gow** (Restructured, Bullet:dodge, KMS)
Toronto-based Greg Gow is one of Canada’s leading Techno electronic dance music artists. His international stature is well established and growing rapidly – as a DJ, producer, promoter and label manager.
Currently Greg holds down DJ residencies at some of Toronto’s leading electronic dance music destinations, including Footwork, and Guvernment. As well, he is an ambassador for Canadian electronic music around the world, with recent DJ performances in Japan, Germany, Italy, Holland, Mexico and South America. In the USA Greg has also made appearances in Miami, Detroit, New York, Chicago and San Diego.
In the studio Greg combines analogue and digital equipment to compose banging yet soulful Detroit style Techno. Many of his prominent releases have been on Restructured, a highly respected international record label, which Greg founded and continues to build. Restructured highlights a wide variety of premier artists from around the globe.
In late 2009 Greg had his first of two releases, The Pilgrimage, an EP re-launch, for Transmat, the world-famous label of Detroit's Derrick May, one of the Godfathers of Techno. The second Transmat release in 2011 features Twilight Soul. Both have been highly acclaimed.
Increasingly Greg’s creative focus has been on crafting remixes and original compositions for a number of innovative small and medium sized international labels including: Bulletdodge (UK), Etishetta Nera (Italy), Jeton (Turkey), and Movement Sound Recordings (Italy). Future such collaborations will soon appear on ArtForm (UK), Alma Soul Music (Spain), Abstract Theory (Italy) and KMS (USA).
**George Rimore** (*spark, FNOOB)
George Rimore, originally from Sudbury, Ontario, started DJing in his teens. With his courage to delve into a variety of genres, and his relentlessness to search for the best way to get dancefloors intently grooving, Rimore has transcended many musical norms. Since his relocation to Toronto, his DJ career has flourished.
You may have seen Rimore play at venues in Toronto include Augusta House, Bunda Lounge, TOTA, and Our House, with most recent bookings at Jun Jun Bar and the afterhours dungeon simply referred to as Rainbow Palace. Notably, in the summer of 2012, Rimore snagged a coveted booking at the notorious Belgian festival, Tomorrowland. His sets always take the listener on a journey; whether it be through the clouds, down a dark tunnel or through space.
