We welcome JON CHARNIS.
ROOM 1. House / Techno
After years of producing music under various guises, Jon Charnis found his true calling in the slower, darker, and deeper spheres of House music. The re-invention manifested beyond music as the former DC native relocated to the city of Los Angeles while launching his new moniker (his actual birth name).
From then on it didn't take long to make his impact felt. His track 'Prophecy' was spotted by Innervisions boss, Dixon, who signed the track to his prestigious Berlin based label after road testing it at some of the world's premier parties.
He followed this up with an official remix of Art Department's Burning Man anthem, "Robot Heart", a collaboration with production partners Lovecraft and Prab K. And with upcoming tracks on No.19, Supernature, and All Day I Dream, 2013 will be a year to watch for this fast rising producer.
Jon Charnis has received support by world renowned DJs such as Dixon, Steve Lawler, Ame, Tale of Us, Thugfucker, Anja Shneider, Daniel Bortz, & Jimpster to name a few
His career has seen him work regularly alongside some of the biggest talents in the industry such as Guy Gerber, Gregor Tresher and Argy to name a few. Already a prolific touring DJ, Silky has headlined shows of the calibre of Sullivan Room (New York), The Standard Hotel in Los Angeles and Kee Club in Hong Kong.
His latest single, a collaboration with Canada's My Favorite Robot, is a dark, acid-tinged cover of the Tears for Fears classic ‘Shout’, which entered straight into the Beatport Indie Dance & Nu Disco chart top 20 in December 2012 and got heavy support from the likes of Seth Troxler, Noir, Clive Henry, Andrew Grant, Droog and many more.
Kicking off the New Year by playing the opening of BPM Festival in Mexico, 2013 will see Silky launch his new record label ‘Faceless Recordings’ alongside good friends Climbers and Barber, and will see him release a number of very exciting solo singles and collaborations with Jonny Cruz, Nitin, Jon Charnis, Climbers, Barber and more.
DJ Mag allstar and globetrotting Adam is one of our residents at Faceless, an amazing DJ and all round nice guy! He has played from Space Ibiza, to D-Edge in Brazil and everywhere inbetween.
ROOM 2 - Indie Nu Disco / Deep House
Grass Is Greener (Nurvous Records | Sullivan Room NYC)
With the debut release of “Start Again” in 2012 on the indie dance/nu-disco sub-label Nurvous, Grass Is Greener have been making some electro waves. The duo is made up of SR SERGE and EBAR, both transplant New Yorker’s who aren’t unfamiliar with the EDM community. Although born in Ukraine, it was in the city where SR SERGE first became captivated by the music of Depeche Mode, New Order and Duran Duran. A fascination with 80’s influenced sound led him to discover the thriving New York club scene, first as an avid clubber, then an event promoter. Serge is not only one of the faces behind Sullivan Room, which is a beloved underground electronic nightclub in New York, but also a widely known DJ/Producer. Continuing the run the club for over twelve years ,he has built a sustainable life around music, proving that he can mix business with pleasure anytime.
EBAR is another veteran from the beginning years of New York’s electronic scene since the 1990’s. The DJ/Producer runs on two alter egos, one being EBAR with is deep-house and electronica styles while the other, Indicant is more progressive using a techier sounds. Having 21 year’s under his belt, he has spun numerous times at places like, Cielo, Tantra, Folies Pigalle, Spundae and with artist such as Josh Wink, Moby, Louie Vega and a earful of others. EBAR has not slowed down since he began, with three record labels under his name (Sifted Recordings, Central Park Recordings, Quarterlife Records) he truly has this idea to engulf the edm scene and give something back through his own craft.
Grass is Greener uses SERGE’s DJ skills and EBAR’s production skills to bring alive a nu-disco/ 80’s themed extravaganza. In May of 2013, There original mix “Two Of Hearts” continued to climb Beatport’s Top 100 charts and was also listed on Beatport’s NuDisco/Indie charts that same month. With their charisma and disco sound, Grass is Greener is an appropriate name for two men who continue to create, progress, and never call it quits…because their plot of grass will always be greener than yours.
Faceless Recordings cofounder, OFF Recordings newcomer and Nurvous Records debutant Barber has quickly established himself an artist to keep a close eye on in 2013.
His introductory release saw the Faceless Recordings team come together on what was also the labels first release – ‘Left Your Love’. Climbers produced it, Barber and Silky remixed it, and DJ Mag backed it to the hills by featuring as a download on their website.
The trio came together once again to stamp some signature club vibes on their next EP for OFF Recordings. Frozen & Mindset both set the tone for future releases, sitting nicely bridging the gap between house and techno, and always retaining underground appeal.
OFF took the support one step further by inviting Barber to join Vanilla Ace on the remix for Bruce Leroys & Dr. Shinigami’s ‘Get Me Right’. The remix placed highly in the Beatport deep house charts, inviting attention to Barbers next moves.
This interest fell further afield than the underground, with Columbia Records asking for Barber to remix his childhood heroes, Depeche Mode. His remix of ‘Should Be Higher’ takes the original on a new journey. It retains the original’s feeling and intelligence, whist giving it a straightforward club ready feel.
His greatest attribute when it comes to production is his flair for improvisation, which is exactly how he learned to play the keys on blues & jazz scales. As a result, he doesn’t read or recite pieces but constructs his works through pure feeling. Taking influences from a samba background, percussion is an obvious crucial element in the music he creates where the grooves are designed to compliment Barber’s most prominent factor, his voice.
