Nathan Berger

nathan bergerA singer-song writer with a hugely versatile, multi-genre spanning repertoire. Front man to both The Lounge Crusade, an indie pop quintet and The Activators, an 11 piece ska/reggae collective as well as previously being one half of the EDM duo, Kadence. Nathan has graced stages across Europe, playing support to numerous artists as diverse as Fat Boy Slim to Kool and the Gang, Scouting for Girls to The Specials. He’s become a regular fixture on the UK festival scene, headlining stages at Glastonbury, Isle of White Festival and Boomtown Fair.

Being immersed in such an eclectic mix of genres has been instrumental in the breaking down of his perceptual barriers between them and this is very much reflected in Nathan’s song writing. Landing a publishing deal with Truelove Publishing as a song writer and vocalist opened new avenues of collaboration internationally and Nathan is now focusing inspiration on these, the first being with one of Brazil’s most successful electronic artists – Gui Boratto. Nathan features as a vocalist and co-writer on Gui’s 5th studio album – Pentagram, with further collaborations in the pipeline.

Nicole Moudaber

L1005302-2_COLOURIgnited by an internal combustion engine fueled by raw emotion, Nicole Moudaber is at the forefront of her own movement. The sought after DJ and Producer presides over an empire that includes MOOD; her highly influential record label and global party brand, as well as a hugely popular radio show, a back catalogue of incendiary techno releases and a range of philanthropic endeavors. Nicole’s unique appeal has won her a legion of like-minded fans all over the world; no bullshit, upfront honesty, integrity, vulnerability, anger, passion, love, kindness, loyalty and a unflinching determination to keep pushing forward make her a force to be reckoned with. An unstoppable soul who stands in a class of her own, Nicole Moudaber is one of the techno world’s most iconic contemporary artists…

Her history is well documented; raised in Nigeria of Lebanese descent, she moved to London after falling foul of Lebanon’s ultra-conservative policies. In London, Nicole began to build the foundations of a career that has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people all over the planet. Moving from promoting events, to DJing and production, she immersed herself in the club scene and soon began traveling the world. In the last few years Nicole has circumvented the globe countless times, spreading her contagious energy to dance floors far and wide; from Brazil to Sydney, Montreal to Dubai and everywhere in between. But at the heart of her success is the pain of loss; the death of her father in 2012 – a flashpoint that sent her spiralling, just as her career was on the rise.

Fueled by grief and anger, Nicole threw herself into her work and experienced an unparalleled level of achievement, producing some of her best music and playing some incredible DJ sets. As you will find with much of the world’s compelling music, there is often agony and torment at its roots; and, though she did her utmost to suppress those feelings, eventually Nicole crumbled. Since that moment she has been building herself back up, facing up to some deep rooted emotions and beginning to make peace with her past. It’s been a turbulent pathway to success but there is no progress without suffering.

No matter where she is – at home with friends, chilling with a loved one or on the decks – Nicole Moudaber is the same person: genuine, compassionate, feisty and as real as can be. Nicole’s unfiltered public image and sincerity has created a strong bond between the formidable selector and her fanbase. It’s an unspoken level of understanding centred around love, anguish, grief, joy and a myriad of other emotions that come through in Nicole’s performances. As an all out dance floor fiend herself, she is primed to cultivate unforgettable memories; thrilling, euphoric and powerful.

Nicole’s unfiltered public image and sincerity has created a strong bond between the formidable selector and her fanbase. It’s an unspoken level of understanding centred around love, anguish, grief, joy and a myriad of other emotions that come through in Nicole’s performances. As an all out dance floor fiend herself, she is primed to cultivate unforgettable memories; thrilling, euphoric and powerful.

That same level of devotion and intuition permeates through everything Nicole Moudaber does; her label Mood Records, her Mood brand of events; MoodRAW (warehouse parties), MoodZONE (festival stages) and MoodDAY (pool parties) catering for a broad demographic of party people, plus her radio show, In The MOOD, which is syndicated across the globe to 80 stations in 50 countries, with over 20 million weekly listeners worldwide. Nicole puts her heart and soul into all aspects of what has become her life’s work. Never one to stand still, she is constantly seeking to advance and evolve; to better herself and grow as an artist and a human being, which has produced an ever-growing list of achievements: Best Online Music Show in the 2016 Online Radio Awards, Best Minimal/Techno Track at the International Dance Music Awards in 2012 for her remix of ‘Chemistry’ by Carl Cox and Best Tech House/Techno Track at the 2016 IDMAs for her rework of ‘Give Me Luv’ by Alcatraz, features in a wide range of high-profile media outlets including CNN, The New York Times, Rolling Stone and more. She has been profiled by Red Bull on her passion for motorsports, unveiling her double-life as a Professional Race Car Driver – a high-octane hobby that encapsulates Nicole’s fearless nature and unerring passion for living life in the fast lane. She compares the concentration needed to stay on the race track, with the singular focus needed for DJing, the two passions feeding into one another.

The incessant fire in her belly has catapulted Nicole into the upper echelons of the electronic music world, where she occupies her own space as head of the Mood empire. The global reach of this brand has led to Nicole curating MoodZONE festival stages at the world’s biggest events: Electric Daisy Carnival (New York, Las Vegas & Orlando), California’s Escape, and BPM Festival (Mexico & Portugal) joined by friends such as Carl Cox, Sasha, Danny Tenaglia, Chris Liebing, Paco Osuna, Pan-Pot and Dubfire. Aside from her own events, Nicole’s relentless touring schedule never ends, delivering her dark, emotive and lascivious blend of techno to clubbing institutions worldwide including Paradise at DC-10 in Ibiza, London superclub fabric, New York’s Output, and a range of events hosted by the Ultra family, where Nicole is a regular face on the Resistance stage, headlining across multiple continents including North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

Above all else though, is Nicole’s fighting spirit and the desire to use her status to highlight injustice. Nicole’s belief in giving a voice to those in need emanates from her core. Her most recent campaign is focused on supporting victims of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). She launched the charity ELEVEN on International Day of the Girl Child in October 2018. The charity aims to raise funds for Magool, an organisation that provides support to victims and funds volunteers to help prevent the brutal and barbaric practice. Nicole works with the Lower East Side Girls Club in New York, where she has not only mentored young women, giving them the skills and confidence they need to become music producers in their own right, but also furnished them with equipment. She has also given her time to Solving Kids Cancer; an enterprise that has utilised its own research to work on cures for rare forms of cancer. On top of that, Nicole is also an ambassador for the Association For Electronic Music (AFEM), using her position to campaign for positive change in the electronic music industry.

Nicole Moudaber is a speaker of truth, a campaigner for social justice, a lover, warrior, woman – a human being with the darkness and light we all carry within us. Beyond the artist you see on stage, Nicole is instigating change; a leader whose legacy is centred on empowerment, education and social progress…

Sandy Vee

 

Sandy Vee’s blend of melodic pop chops, studio expertise and underground aesthetics has culminated in a fresh new sound that brings an underground mentality to the world of worldwide smash hits. He is exceptional amongst hit producers as he does the final mixes to almost all work himself.   Over just the past six months, Sandy Vee has become an increasingly regular presence on the global charts with hot new releases from a dizzying array of Top 40 A-list artists including Katy Perry (“Fireworks, which hit the top 10 in U.K., Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand), Ne-Yo (“Beautiful Monster,” which peaked at #1 in the U.S. and U.K.), David Guetta (“Sexy Bitch,” which peaked at #1 in a slew of countries, including the U.K., France, Germany, New Zealand and Canada) and Pitbull feat T-Pain (“Hey Baby [Drop It To The Floor],” which reached #44 on Billboard Hot 100 and #21 on Billboard Rap song chart).

Sandy is especially proud of his work with David Guetta, as the overwhelming global triumph of the “One Love” album has had a noticeable effect on popular music at large, including hip-hop.  “I was walking through a recording studio in New York recently, and all I heard were other artists working on danceable, electro tracks. It’s the same when I turn on the radio,” Sandy enthuses. “That underground four-on-the-floor house beat is everywhere right now. I believe it’s the success of Guetta’s album played a large part in making that happen.”

It was during Sandy’s first trip to New York City in November of 2009 when he first met up with Stargate, the Norwegian production team who have had much American urban and pop success.  “I played them a few tunes I was working on at the time, and they went crazy for one in particular,” Sandy remembers now of that fateful meeting. “So we worked together and finished it. It’s kind of ironic — we just delivered that first track we ever worked on all those months ago to Sean Kingston for his next album.

The Sandy Vee/Stargate connection has resulted in a fruitful working relationship with hit songs as “Fireworks” (Katy Perry),  “S&M” (from Rihanna’s forthcoming “Loud” album), “Beautiful Monster” (Ne-Yo) as well as a new remix of the Taio Cruz song “Higher” featuring legendary U.K. diva Kylie Minogue.
Sandy has collaborated with known topliners such as Claude Kelly (Kesha, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera), Ester Dean (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Ciara), Cristyle (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson), Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry, Kesha) and August Rigo (Sean Kingston, Justin Beiber, lyaz).

Sandy Vee is currently residing in New York City.

CALVERTRON

Following a string of speaker rattling productions and highly acclaimed remixes, Alex Calver aka Calvertron has found himself grabbing the attention of some of the most credible artists and record labels in the business. His tracks are consistently featured on the UK’s national radio and are spreading like a pandemic into the sets of the world’s most influential DJ’s.

His label Glitch Recordings was a techno staple and included numerous collaborations with the Liberator family, most notably another Truelove Music composer D.A.V.E. The Drummer. Then Alex’s versatility continued, with his role as co-producer behind one of the UK’s most groundbreaking music duos, Twocker – alongside Will Bailey.

Calver has since emerged as a forceful production talent and has already had the honor of remixing such key players as Laidback Luke, Armand Van Helden and Sander Kleinenberg. With over 100 12” releases under his belt, his work has regularly appeared on large labels like Cr2, Ministry of Sound and Toolroom, as well as an array of global imprints including Trouble & Bass, Potty Mouth Music, Vacation and Bugeyed. 2011 sees another step up with a release on American label Dim Mak.

His own label Jack Knife Records continues to develop its reputation, including his dubstep link up with Figure in early 2011 that scored a Beatport Top 5 hit with ‘Bring the Bass Back’. Also an accomplished DJ, Calvertron sets are just like the tracks he makes, impossible to pigeonhole and carnage for the dance-floor.

Majestic MC

Majestic started out as an MC plying his trade in the nightclubs of North London from the age of fifteen. He quickly managed to break onto the pirate radio stations that were playing UK Garage and early grime in 2002. It was during this time that Majestic (real name Kevin Christie) withdrew from the normal social life of a fifteen year old with his friends to concentrate on building up his profile amongst other Garage producers and MCs. Bookings soon followed at clubs such as Scala in Kings Cross and Eros in Enfield, and Majestic quickly realised the challenges that lay ahead for a white MC on the UK Garage circuit.

In 2007, Majestic started posting mixtapes on online forums, such as the Uptown forum, where he would record his rhymes over Electro House beats for which he had recently discovered as an alternative to the UK Garage scene. Within days of these posts he had interest from international promoters in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Russia. He was now performing in front of crowds as big as five thousand alongside DJs such as Laidback Luke, Bart B Moore, Will Bailey and The Wideboys. This encounter with The Wideboys in Amsterdam turned out to be a meeting of two minds; the discovery of a common musical direction fusing the tried and tested production skills of The Wideboys with the lyrical flow and social content of Majestic’s rhymes.

In early 2009, Majestic and The Wideboys finished ‘In The VIP’ which took a satirical look at the VIP culture that exists on the London club scene. Following this, other songs such as ‘Stand Together’ and ‘Running Up That Hill’ combined Majestic’s social message with standout pop production from The Wideboys. No longer on the sidelines, Majestic is ready to overcome any challenges that may face him, and get his music, and his message, to the masses.
