Greg Beato(LIES, CCCP, APRON)
Greg Beato is one the hottest names in house right now. The Miami based producer has put out some of the most exciting releases of 2013 with “PMA” receiving a 4/5 from resident advisor and to top it off he is still a teenager!
Not a whole lot is known about the personal details of Miami producer Greg Beato, but his tracks do plenty of speaking on their own. He's released material on L.I.E.S. (and its Russian Torrent Versions offshoot) and Funkineven's Apron imprint, and so far, his sound has stuck closely to the aesthetic hallmarks of those two labels, with a pared-down approach that applies the fuzzy filters of low-bit-rate sampling and overdriven channels to the guideposts of dance music's past. Still, Beato's music is far from the pure aggression often associated with today's noise-inclined artists, as his output carries a melodic sweetness that serves to lighten the abrasive edge of his percussive choices. His drum programming is often complex, but a penchant for soulful flourishes helps him get at the breadth and depth of old-school deep house while staying firmly rooted in the present. – XLR8R
Big Strick (FXHE, 7DAYSENT.)
Born in the 70s at the peak of Motown Records, Big Strick was heavily influenced by the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, 4 Tops and a host of other extraordinary acts that blessed Detroit with great soulful music. As a youth, Big Strick started taking to another unique Detroit sound, P-FUNK (PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC), whose style of funky guitar, bass, keyboard, funky synthesizer and drum players led to a style that would change the face of music forever.
As an early teen Big Strick was introduced to house music. At that time The Wizard (Jeff Mills) was the DJ on 92.3 WDRQ. Big Strick recalls “sitting listening in amazement to the radio and would not move until his set was over, saying ‘damn, this guy’s fast’. Spending hours at a time taping him on cassette and walking the 12 blocks to Buy Rite Records which was the only house music record store in the Detroit at the time.”
The sound Big Strick was more attracted to was the sound of Trax Records (Chicago) and Metroplex (Detroit). Big Strick and some friends started throwing parties around the city (Detroit) where they would DJ. Patrice Scott (Sistrum Records) and lil cous’ Alex Omar S (FXHE Records) would sometimes tag along.
Big Strick continued to do parties throughout the years but with his family beginning to start in the mid 90s he slowed down but still kept the music going. Now that his family has started to bloom he is back with old school flavour and a new school style
