Written by Jessica Alici on 08-05-18 11:11 (2403 views)
Nemesis is back! After a ten year hiatus from techno – delving into a plethora of genres from house – techno – trance – psy trance – downbeat; it’s fair to say that there aren’t many sub-genres of electronic dance music left for him to infiltrate! For the last 20 years he’s been releasing music under approx. 40 different aliases (Underground Nation of Rotterdam, Clubbers Delight, Alichi Chevalier, Cosmic Warrior, Dave Holmes, Steve Morley, System E & Sons of Shiva)! Releasing on iconic labels such as Direct Drive, Rotterdam Records, Motor, BMG, Cream, Slinky, Nukleuz, Tidy & Iono Music!

Despite his career’s meandering twists and turns, one thing has remained a constant – his love for techno! His love for the genre stems from his early clubbing years and has never left him, even when his musical journey led him into different directions. Recently the lure back became too strong to resist and Nem3si$ has been reborn. Back bigger and bolder then ever, Nem3si$ has returned to the studio and delivered the first batch of timeless tracks, resulting already in signings to Iono Black, Gain Records and Krafted Underground.

We decided to grab him for a quick sit down and chat – whilst we still can!

Written by Tara on 07-05-18 08:12 (3887 views)
Russian-born Israeli musician Yuli Fershtat aka Perfect Stranger has come a long way in the last 20 years, something recently celebrated by the release of the epic triple-CD 11 on leading label Iboga Records. Now based in California, Yuli flies all over the world to play his unique blend of genre-defying psychedelic progressive tribal tech trance (and all things in between…), as well as producing his signature tunes and running Digital Structures, where he’s just released his latest At The Crossroads Vol. 6 comp.

The brainchild of multi-talented London-based Turkish musician Bahar Canca, Psy-Boutique Festival is a magical intimate gathering on the coast of Turkey. Restricted to just a couple of hundred guests, this year’s edition is on a stunning private beach at The Bay Beach Club within a rare 50,000m2 sweet gum tree forest. The most productive converter of oxygen you’ll find in nature, it’s the only life form that’s stayed the same for over 65 million years! Suffice to say, it’s a very special place and the incredible line-up hand-picked by Bahar is only going to make the festival the most special yet.

With Yuli headlining Psy-Boutique 2018 and playing an exclusive 2.5 hour set on the Sunday night, we tracked him down to his cupboard in Cali where he now produces his tunes…
