Mike Shannon


Any historian who takes it upon themselves to pen the tale of Canadian electronic in the years to come will most certainly find the name Mike Shannon figures early and often in it’s telling. From his humble beginnings in the sleepy suburban town of Kitchener Ontario, the last 15 years have seen him become an internationally lauded producer with albums on 3 of the industry’s most respected labels (Plus 8, Force Inc, ~Scape), as well as a steady stream of consistently charted singles and remixes.


A true “DJ’s DJ”, he has won legions of fans and the respect of his peers alike for his deep crates and lightning fast mixing skills. And while some may suggest he has gravitated towards smoother, deeper selections as the years go by, those in the know will tell you he has few equals when it comes to whipping dance floors into a relentless techno frenzy should you catch him on a night with that mischievous twinkle in his eye.


Those fortunate enough to catch one of Mike’s rare live performances are encouraged to do so with an open mind, as it is in this context that the breadth of his creativity truly shines. From the shuffling house and techno of his solo performances to the narcotic jazz of his new Blue Fields project alongside singer Fadila and guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto, his is a musical vision which easily wriggles free of the usual genre signifiers and pays grand dividends to those with the good sense to get nice and close to the speakers; the devil is most certainly in the details as the old saying goes.


Yet beyond all of this, perhaps his greatest achievement has been his unfailing support of the music and people he loves. As head A&R and damn near everything else of Cynosure and formerly Revolver Canada Recordings (alongside Jeff Milligan) for over 10 years, Mike has shown an uncanny ability to select and release tracks which have become go-to fixtures in the sets of the industry’s best DJs, as well as introducing the world to the work of some of his nearest and dearest before anyone knew their names (Akufen, Deadbeat, Ernesto Ferrerya). Far from pursuing the next one hit wonder or sound of the season, his steadfast curatorial vision and passion for the music have earned him the trust of discerning music connoisseurs the world over.


Mike Shannon lives and works in Berlin.








For a good decade now has been Gonzalo Urtizberea (a.k.a. Gurtz) incarnating his creative potential into diverse beeps, bleeps, twists and tweaks. Having evolved from classical music studies to the world famous electronic music producer/dj.


In the recent years he rocked best dancefloors and festivals of Europe and Both Americas (Watergate, Weekend or Bar25/Berlin, Fuse/Brussels, Moog/Barcelona, Nouveau Casino/Paris, Arma17/Moscow, Toy Club/Stuttgart, Hive/Zurich, Avalon/Los Angeles, Overground Festival/Geneva, Mutek/Arg or Minitek Festival/NYC) and has been releasing his tracks on well-known labels, such as Einmaleins, Lomidhigh, Igloo,Liga Elektronika,Recovery Tech or Telegraph, to name a few.


Creative and collaborative, he has remixed and been remixed by such techno stars as Bruno Pronsato, Dandy Jack, Ryan Crosson, Mark Henning, Seph, Dapayk, Ambivalent, Franco Cinelli, Agaric, Dilo, Funzion, etc, and his bright live performances have gained the artist passionate affection everywhere from his home land Argentina all the way to Eastern Europe.


Within his most recent project under the aliases of Gonzales, he ventured off towards eclectic synergy of rhythmic twisted house with thoughtful and eternal epic melodies.


As a talented and versatile artist, is not only mixing, creating his own music, but also supporting and promoting other producers and kinds of electronic music and multimedia media art, not necessarily tied to the dance floor, throughout his own net label www.naturalmedia.com.ar.

Tolis knows his way around music. He knows the craft of selection. He knows what he likes and what feels on the dance floor and translates that into his everything he does with music  albeit DJ sets, with the Quantized label, or the sounds he’s using in his next release.

Along with other remixes and collaboration projects that found their way into the catalogues of some of today’s most noted labels signed onto emerging labels such as Rebirth, ACDC, Presslab and Kumquat Tunes.

KUMQUAT went deep into the suburbs of Buenos Aires and hunted Oswld.

On a period of intense creativity and under a new moniker: 04LM project was launched.

With eponymous name the 12″ EP release explores a deeper side of techno, harmonious and combined with melodic synth patches.

Sensitive and lacerating, 04LM got some inspiration from movie sound composers such as Angelo Badala- menti (o.s.t. Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet) and Giorgio Moroder (o.s.t Midnight Express, Scarface).

Oswld put his imprint of the remix, rhythmic with Detroit techno influences, whose past releases at Non Series got strong support by representative of the genre such as Ben Klock, Dustin Zahn, Chris Liebing, Truncate, Jonas Kopp, and more.

Member of the dub techno community, the New York based South African Brendon Moeller aka Echologist put his signature on two driving remixes with organic sounds and experimental approach. After his 9th album and countless releases Brendon reinvents himself with every track he produces. „His goal is first and foremost, to create timeless, quality music that resonates with people from all walks of life“.
