We kick off the year in style hosting one of the most in demand artists of the moment. Shall Ocin has been killing it with next level performances around the globe. His latest releases featured on Maceo Plex’s ELLUM label have been doing major damage at peak times on dancefloors everywhere!
We equally excited to have the legendary Till Von Sein headlining the Groovebar and taking us on a musical journey second to none.
MATTHEW PREHN (OH SO COY RECORDINGS)
Argentinian Nicholas Abalos aka Shall Ocin has a long history with music that dates right back to his childhood. As a youth he played the guitar and electric bass, and was in contact with a myriad of musical styles from classic 80s sounds to rich funk via many distorted genres in between. It was in 1998, though, that he discovered DJ culture and turntables and so began his journey as a DJ.
With a contagious knack for laying down sets that are always married to an essential groove. He began turning heads of promoters in clubs around the world from Spain to France to Germany. In 2006 he decided to settle in Valencia, Spain and began producing his own music. It is often techno and is always music that is richly produced, full of feeling and more than able to get dance floors moving.
In 2010 came his first release under the name “PANEOH” and before long he was topping charts everywhere and appearing on labels such as Culprit and Leftroom amongst others like Ellum Audio. Now a touring DJ who plays across America and Europe at major clubs and festivals every weekend.
TILL VON SEIN
Alongside his trademark sound, Till von Sein exudes an aura of noble grandeur mixed with the genuine enthusiasm of a child with a favourite toy when he’s busy in the DJ booth. But Tilly’s toy, which in this case is house and its countless derivatives, won’t ever end up forgotten in the corner. Long after the wrapping paper has been thrown away, what Till loves has yet to lose its magic. For von Sein, the sound of an 808 clap triggers a state of ecstasy, which in his hands emerges as pure euphoria on the dance floor. Time and again, his thumping transitions and heart-racing sets send listeners into overdrive, revealing the very core of house, soul and techno, while hitting on just what makes these genres so exciting.
Despite his intimate knowledge of the industry, which might allow him to slip easily into a been-there-done-that attitude, Till von Sein shows non-stop enthusiasm. For the last ten years, he has run the internationally active Clique Bookings at the side of Claudia Marquardt. More recently, his work as a producer has grown to encompass a vast catalogue of releases on labels such as Suol, Dirt Crew and Supplement Facts. He has collaborated with artists such as Tigerskin, Aera, Chopstick and Catz’n’Dogz, and his DJ work has long been a fixture in the international club scene. After his 2011 solo album “#LTD” (Suol), von Sein enjoyed a fully booked calendar and successful tour through South Africa, Japan, USA and Europe. He continues to ride a wave of success. In 2013, he released his personal contribution to the Suol Mates mix series as well as a series of new EPs. A line of output that culminated in the 2015 release of “Precious”, his second solo-album for Suol. Upcoming projects for the nearer future include a joint venture with producer and friend Tigerskin.
