Maquina Music is a small label from the UK that has been making a name for itself over the last year for releasing extremely high quality tech, progressive, and deep house tracks. They’re also running a top-notch online-focused release and promotion strategy (use of myspace profile notwithstanding) that is building them quite a following, allows them to stay in touch with their core fans, and create and maintain meaningful relationships with industry stakeholders. They were even running a podcast until a few months ago! In other words, bigger labels could take a lesson. So aside from these ThreeSixty and Dirty Harris, whom I’ve written about before, a couple of other Maquina artists I’ve supported in my sets include Jaceo, Kiddo, and Kryder. The track Kuba is a particular favourite among these that I’ve played out quite a bit, and I’m delighted to be able to pass it on to you folks today!!
With a full-house chanting 'Dam-Funk' for several minutes before and after the show, the highly-anticipated New York debut of MASTER BLAZTER, DÂM-FUNK 's new live band featuring Computer Ja y and J-1 along with GroWeyez & the surprise gues t Peanut Butter Wolf was a historic performance...they were definitely feeling the love from NYC. I'm not into any type of hype, I just love good music and I recognize diamonds before others tell me about them. I first saw him perform last year on the Stones Throw tour, so I was really curious to see the new phase of his musical journey. (Check out my interview with him from last year here ). Having a live band on stage just completed Dam's sound and took it to a completely new level.
