PROJECT PABLO

Project Pablo (Patrick Holland), is a DJ and Musician currently residing in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. 2015 saw Holland’s debut full length release I Want to Believe (1080p) and his inaugural European Journey. Post-tour, South London’s Church imprint welcomed the Canadian to their roster with a solo outing via their V/A 12′ series ‘Church Volumes’, and a rougher collaborative record with Vancouver’s Wolfey, coined Jervis Pump Station. 2016 brought on a more comprehensive European jaunt for Holland covering 12 cities & clubs; including Copenhagen’s Jolene, London’s Corsica Studios, Vienna’s Celeste and Manchester’s Soup Kitchen. To compliment the trip, London’s Magicwire delivered Holland’s fourth 12′ to date, Priorities, on April 8th. Inspired by the depths of adult contemporary and moods and ‘tudes of his french/italian neighbourhood, the 4 cuts are aimed for the dance. This year holds further investigation of the European Continent in July and two records featuring previously heard and unheard music.

DJ MINX

DJ Minx was inspired to spin by the famed Music Institute in Detroit. Her style is described as funky, powerful house, with a splash of grace. For two years, Minx engineered and hosted “Deep Space Radio,” an electronic music show on Detroit’s WGPR radio station, on which she conducted interviews and played mixes by DJs and Producers from around the world. The show was heralded by the innovators of techno music (“Magic” Juan Atkins, Kevin “Reese” Saunderson, Eddie Fowlkes, and Derrick May). Minx also voluntarily did a weekly radio program at the University of Canada on CJAM 91.5 FM called “Steamy Windows,” which featured house music by local and international artists.

As a resident of world-renowned Club Motor, Minx opened for artists such as Basement Jaxx, Doc Martin, Cajmere, and Afrika Bambatta. In December 1996, Minx founded Women on Wax, a collective of female DJs from the Metro Detroit area. From then on, she began working with promoters and DJs across the country, and helped to solidify the career of several top female DJs and songstresses.

Being a featured performer during the first Detroit Electronic Music Festival (D.E.M.F.) in May 2000 had an incredible impact on Minx’s career. Since then, she’s played at Tresor in Berlin, Output in New York, Toronto’s Film Lounge, Club Ohm in Portland, Deep Sugar in Baltimore, and Club Air in Japan, and for with massive crowds in Paris, Cancun, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium and numerous other domestic and international locales.

In 2001, Minx established her own record label called Women On Wax Recordings, which has served as a vehicle to present many talented artists and producers to the world including Diamondancer, Pirahnahead, and Diviniti. Minx has also expanded her musical majesty by creating a sub-imprint of the label called W.O.W. B.A.M. (Women On Wax Bangin’ Ass Music). Besides releases on her own labels, she has produced and remixed tracks for Minus (Berlin), Trisomie 21 (Paris), Soiree Records (Detroit), West End Records (New York), Code Red (Baltimore), United Music (Paris), Whasdat Music (Detroit), Liberate (Chicago), and Fast Forward (Atlanta), among others.

Currently on the Connect Bookings roster, Detroit’s “First Lady of Wax” is going strong after nearly three decades of DJing. Minx recently moved her “Queen Beats Radio” weekly show to the new deepspaceradio, and she continues to host parties, specifically during Movement in Detroit. She was named one of the ’20 Women Who Shaped the History of Dance Music’ by Mixmag and one of the ‘Best house music DJs of all time’ by TimeOut New York.

One can only imagine what other paths Minx will explore in the years to come.

MAX MCFERREN

NYC’s boundary patrolling Bossa Nova Civic Club regular and Chinatown resident splits his time between 2 as of yet known projects under his birth name and MCFERRDOG. Alleged “techno oddity”, McFerren spent the last few years grinding through the illest of NYC techno functions, including recent highlights such as the Shade NYC Halloween Warehouse rave, 1080p’s Label night at Bodi Actualized, and Thanksgiving at Bossa Nova Civic Club.

After putting out 3 split 12”s on Grayson Revoir’s Shoot The Lobster project, Max caught the attention of South London Ordnance in the UK and made plans for the mid 2014 release of the “Real Problem” 12” on SLO’s Aery Metals. Also around the same time a chance encounter with fellow 1080p artist M/M on his radio show led to a meeting with 1080p’s boss dawg, Richard McFarlane. This true love led to eventual marriage and the subsequent birth of “Club Amniotics”. Brother tape “Lawd Forgive Me” followed early this year and received distinct praise from such independant music dignitaries as Pitchfork. 2015 promises to be most fertile with McFerren releases expected on Physical Therapy’s new label Allergy Season along with some other unplanned surprises!

If you want some acid, booty dungeon, blissed out, ambient, jack, or sludge and we’ll get you McFerren on the decks. He also has iTunes® playlists under the names “fucked up”, “nasty”, “time 2 chill”, just in case. Very sensitive DJing!
