Samuel L Session has been in the electronic music scene since the 90′s with releases on Music Man, Figure, Soma, Klap Klap and Be As One to name a few. Samuel started his first own label, Solid Beat in 1995 and 2 years later the first Cycle was released. "In Your Box" became his breakthrough record followed by "Check Out This I Bring". After eleven releases on Cycle, Samuel forms SLS. SLS's first track "Velvet" became a big dance floor hit and were soon hailed as a classic. During the same period Samuel was invited to remix "Visions Of You" by Blake Baxter & Trevor Rockcliffe as well as Funk D'Void's "Diabla" on Soma. When "Merengue" came out soon after on SLS, it was one of his best sold records ever including remixes from Slam and Oliver Ho.
Style Of Eye is ripping up the rule book with his debut artist album, difficult to describe as anything other than the sort of music that makes you want to call your boss and tell them you're not coming back to work on Monday. Both intelligent but jaw-wobblingly satisfying at the same time, Style Of Eye's productions are testament to the hotbed of talent springing forth from the underground scene. After growing up in a jazz and soul oriented family, graduating from banging pots and pans to a drumkit aged 10, he realised electronic music was his calling after getting his first computer aged 15 and making "weird downtempo dubbeat and trip hop." DJing upbeat drum and bass followed at 16, and Linus was a firm fixture in the studio before long, developing his unique style of music with releases and remixes on such labels as Classic Recordings, Tiny Sticks and Rabid Records.
Nikola Gala is a prolific producer whose impeccably produced tracks have become big releases for Ibadan Records, Rekids, Freerange Records and Plastic City; all labels which represent true quality in the world of underground dance music. Nikola's musical output and DJ style has evolved and reinvented itself many times over the years, always incorporating fresh new elements while remaining relevant and interesting. In fact, after a perusal of Nikolas back catalog, one might wonder if there's something he isn't capable of producing! Nikolas first records of progressive house music were released on the most spotlight labels of the genre including Armada, Lost Language, Rennaisance, Intrinsic and Audio Therapy.
