About the artists:
Lee Curtiss (Visionquest)
Master of the seductive synth, sensitive, pop-inflected songwriter, and all-round label visionary, Lee Curtiss knows how to straddle the dance industry’s many contradictions. In the process, he releases hits as exquisitely crafted and mentally twisted as they are in global demand. The musical engine room of Visionquest, Lee first made his mark as a producer with releases for Spectral, Get Physical, Supplement Facts, and Wolf & Lamb.
Through DJ sets that mine the depths of dance music’s history and live PAs that pave the way to its future, Lee has showcased his inimitable sound in the world’s most esteemed clubs: Circo Loco, DC10, and Fabric London, among others. In addition to residencies in New York, Chicago, Miami, and Berlin, Lee has appeared at festivals like Glastonbury, Time Warp, and Creamfields. Two of his biggest hits, “Good Voodoo” and “Smoking Mirrors,” both made RA’s top tracks of 2011, and his 2012 EP, the naughty Lunatic Fringe, described as “DJ Deeon meets Phil Spector,” was Visionquests top seller.
Shaun Reeves (Visionquest)
Shaun Reeves is an enigmatic pioneer who’s trailblazing quest to export his unique brand of cosmic underground house and techno from his hometown of Detroit to Europe and beyond has brought him international acclaim. Alongside best friends Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss and Seth Troxler he has helped put a warm, esoteric spin on the city’s musical heritage taking it away from clinical minimalism, back towards warmer, more spiritual party music. Together they have formed Visionquest, a genre-busting four-piece DJ combo, live act, record label and forward-thinking school of thought.
Shaun grew up putting on parties in and around Detroit, starting off in small bars and attic spaces, booking the likes of Magda, Dan Bell and John Tejada to play for him. During this time he started drawing deep inspiration from the early Perlon records and listening to sets from its label boss Zip, in 2004 Shaun decided to make the bold move to Berlin closer to the source of this sound. In addition to playing in Berlin's celebrated Panorama Bar, Watergate, the legendary Beatstreet loft parties and holding his ‘Soul Shower’ summer residency at Club Der Visionaere, he has appeared at DC10 (Ibiza), Fabric (London), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Cityfox (Zurich), Sankeys (Manchester) and played for Wolf+Lamb at The Marcy Hotel (NYC).
The last few years have seen Shaun blossom in the studio, both on his own for New York’s Wolf+Lamb, as ‘The Royal We’ with Seth Troxler for Crosstown Rebels, alongside Guti and Miss Fitz for Wolf+Lamb and Raum…musik and most recently as Visionquest remixing Tracey Thorn (for Strange Feeling), doP & Seuil (for Eklo) and Paul Ritch & D’Julz (for Quartz Music).
Fabio Florido (M-nus, Enter)
In 2007 Fabio moved to London where for the first time he came into contact with the intricate world of music, he then spent hours and hours in the studio developing his own unique style that rolls techno and tech-house into one soul led him to his first released in early 2011.
Thanks to the many EP releases and remixes on countless European labels he was being recognised and quickly found support from artists like Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Luigi Madonna, Subfactral, Markantonio, Sasha Carassi and many more from across the globe.
2012/13 was the period that took him to another level, having moved to Ibiza he came into contact with those who gave him the initial inspiration, his mentor, Richie Hawtin and his concept Enter. ENTER. & Ibiza gave him everything he needed to understand what people expect from music.
2014 and a new era for Fabio has begun. Having already cemented himself firmly within the ENTER. family. Fabio has become a central resident to the ENTER. party at Space Ibiza.
