Nihad Tule (SLOBODA / RANDOM ISLAND / 1.53:2 / DRUMCODE)
Esther Duijn (Exquisite Music | Parallel)
Nihad Tule has lately emerged as one of the most profilic producers on the Swedish techno scene with energetic appearances in clubs souch as Berghain and Tresor, plus his resedent spot 2.35:1 in Stockholm.
Born in 1984 in Mostar (Bosnia-Hercegovina), his family sought refuge from the war in their native country and settled down in Norrköping on the Swedish east coast. Nihad soon became hooked by electronic music, producing and DJing. This eventually led to releases on swedish labels Sway and HzTrax, to name a few.
His sound developed, gradually becaming more minimalistic and leading to an impressive string of releases and remixes on respected techno labels such as Drumcode and Truesoul.
Lately his releases for Drumcode LTD, Sleaze and Random Island were all well received by the techno community, gaining support from names like Adam Beyer, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, DJ Rolando, Joel Mull, ROD, etc.
This led to the launch of the label SLOBODA, premiering with it’s first release Shatter/Squalid in early 2013. Releasing exclusively on vinyl, SLOBODA is dedicated to solid futuretroesque techno explorations, with the desire to showcase Nihad’s unique and, above all, multifaceted sound.
Esther Duijn has always been involved in house and techno music. As a dj for over a decade and as a producer for the last four years. She creates music alone and together with her partner in crime Steady Douglas as ‘Duijn&Douglas’. Also she collaborates with Campati as ‘Campati & Esther Duijn’ and was involved with the project ‘D.A.D’ together with Anonym & Steady Douglas.
Duijn&Douglas & Esther Duijn have released at least twelve EP’s and remixes on vinyl & digital labels worldwide. Their tracks have stirred up the dance floors and tracks like ‘Track 1 / Zuidwest’ was charted on decks.de for over six weeks in the main house charts on the nr. 1 and 2 spot. Two repressings have been pressed of their releases.
Next to producing music Esther is spinning records and she also is a collector of rare vinyl. Esther’s style of music cannot really be captured in one phrase. She mixes the new and the old, the rare, the deep & the raw, never compromising the groove, in one sexy onward moving flow. To cut it short: this girl knows how to play house & techno music.
Her influences are SoulPhiction, G-man, Robert Hood, Delano Smith, Patrice Scott, Move D, Cosmin TRG, Anton Zap, Theo Parrish amongst many others.
She has been a welcome dj at clubs like Panoramabar, Trouw, Zur Wilde Renate, Sisyphos & Kruthuset, to name a few. Esther Duijn hosts a night called Another Earth. And she is resident dj of Sisyphos, Berlin & Chateau Techno, Amsterdam.
