On the 8th of Feb 2013 we re light the FUSE. With a continued desire to offer a platform for something different, something underground, something special we bring you part 2 in a series of events looking to bring a spark of energy back to the dancefloor.
Brought to you by Knights Whisky & Cola the stage has been set to change your perspectives! The event takes place in a unique setting in a raw urban environment in the CBD – The TRAIN LODGE. On a platform nestled between 2 parked trains is a scene set to transport you to another time and place. Powered by the RED BULL soundsystem and a carefully selected lineup of top International and local talent your in for a treat.
May we introduce our headline act:
CHRISTIAN CAMBAS ( 1605, Toolroom, DeePerfect )
As Greece’s foremost proponent of Electronic Dance Music, Christian Cambas is the country’s greatest dance music export. He studied and graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, of which former alumni include Brian ‘BT’ Transeau, film score impresario Alan Silvestri & the legendary Quincy Jones.
In the beginning of his career he regularly DJ’ed alongside such luminaries as Carl Cox, John Digweed and Sasha and in 2005 he notably became the first Greek DJ to break into DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs poll, coming in at #88.
His debut cut ‘It Scares Me’ was released on John Digweed’s Bedrock imprint and he has gone on to record for some of the world’s most respected labels. As a remixer Christian has re-imagined massive club hits like Anarcrusan’s ‘In My Mind’ for Yoshitoshi Records, and others throughout the years. In addition to his production and remix career, he has been teaching a college-level Sound Engineering and Music Technology course.
In his hometown of Athens, he held a two year monthly residency at the legendary +SODA in Athens, and his touring schedule includes dates in North & South American Europe and Asia, with gig highlights including the San Francisco Love Parade and the WMC in Miami.
Moving on to new territory, Christian’s productions are now supported by a phalanx of scene-defining techno jocks, and he has signed tracks to labels such as UMEK’s 1605, Great Stuff, Toolroom, Rusted and others. His own imprint in partnership with Press & Play, Sabotage Records, focuses on uncompromising music and and is committed to delivering razor-sharp music that will shape the future.
We are proud to have been selected as a CTEMF satellite event in the build up to their festival from the 15th to the 17th of Feb. With a shared Ethos and passion for an ever evolving SA scene this sets the tone for a strong partnership and added credibility.
The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival (CTEMF) is the celebration of a scene coming of age. It marks the point at which the Electronic Music Scene in South Africa has been recognized by itself and beyond as an industry that has reached the state of being self-sustainable.
The CTEMF is not about how many feet pass through the door, its not about booking the biggest acts to ensure radio play or getting as many ‘likes’ on facebook as possible. It’s about communicating the ethos, passion and musical creativity that has driven the scene from its early days to its current position as a global player in the world of electronic music.
