Light Year

1. Light Year was formed in 1974, when drummer Zak McGrath joined forces with his friend and colleague, pianist Cornelius Williams, with the idea of putting together a band to play new music. They recruited Randy Sellgren (Mingo Lewis-Flight Never Ending) to play guitar. John Yu, the bass player, brought Doug Johnson to play percussion (vibes, marimba, hand drums and other bells and whistles). The singer Sharon Pucci joined later to complete the ensemble.

Catlow

A balance of innovation and power-pop, Catlow is the new incarnation of Natasha Thirsk, lead-singer for indie-rock band The Dirtmitts. With accessible melodies and eccentric charm similar to Rilo Kiley, Blonde Redhead and The Breeders, "Kiss the World" is Catlow's debut album. (note)
This previous note by Diaelectric had erroneous information about the band/Artist Catlow. Catlow from Canada has asked Last.fm to give them control of their Catlow page under their name "catlow".

Cassian

It’s been a year since Cassian’s last EP. And where has the kid with that haircut been? He’s been in the busy, that’s where he’s been. The lead single ‘I Like What You’re Doing’ has already been premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Jaymo & Andy George as part of their “Picks of 2011” show. It takes on the form of a powerhouse party psalm. Charged by an ever-familiar bassline and anthemic vocal performed by a shadowy, old-school Australian music identity. It’s turned into an 80’s fire-funk workout by Lorenz Rhode on his ‘Dangerous Mix’ and a filtered robo-haus jammer in his ‘Rhythm composer mix’.

Remote

Following the success of Chloé’s The Waiting Room, the label Kill The DJ continues to redefine a certain idea of electro music with the long-awaited release of the first album by REMOTE, aka Seb Fouble & Eric Guillanton. 2000-2003: the post-French touch period, everybody is on the look out for something new, and that something new is somewhere out there on vinyl. Seb & Eric release their first maxi as Joe Zas & Co. on Pamplemousse. Then another, this a really important record, a witness to its time: Astroglide, considered as one of the best maxis in 2003 by the press and DJs alike.

Oliver Huntemann

2006: Electronic Dance Music dominates the urban club culture since more than 15 years. Between many highs and lows techno music has proven, that it is here to stay. Not many techno artists managed to do that in the same manner. Bremen based recording artist and DJ Oliver Huntemann definitely belongs to the few activists, who kept on holding up the torch since the beginning. Brought up in the funky northern german countryside, he soon found himself heavily infected by the fascinating world of music.

HOW DOES IT SOUND?
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
LET US DANCE!
LET US HEAL! TAPIO///VOX, SYNTHS///MATTI///BASS, BACKING VOX, SYNTHS///ALPO///DRUMS, SEQUENCERS/// One day two guys, Tapio and Matti, felt really gray. healing was what they needed!
They sat down by the organ and in a second the music started to stream out of their fingers and mouths. Like little rapids forming a beautiful, fertile river! It was magical, it was as if they had found their power animals.
