DJ Le Roi
Grown up in and influenced by the flourishing mid-90s HipHop- and Soulful House-scene of his hometown Basel / Switzerland it became pretty clear to the young Cedric Eichenberger, now better known as DJ Le Roi to all fans of pumping productions and rocking club sets, that being on stage and in the studio was his main goal to aim for. And he succeeded.
Whilst completing a commercial education as a back up plan for real life DJ Le Roi started to DJ back in 2000, building up a great reputation amongst punters and bookers alike due to his masterly crafted sets and on-point selection which soon led to frequent bookings all over the country – and a residency at the famous Nordstern Club Basel. This residency, alongside a massive amount of work and an endless number of gigs played, helped to stress DJ Le Roi’s position as one of the most famous and most popular DJ’s on the House music circuit of his home country who’s regularly playing out on the international circuit since 2010.
Productionwise, after secretly honing his studio skills for years, DJ Le Roi put himself on the map with a banger back in 2007. His very first release „I Get Deep feat. Roland Clark“ became a beloved club standard for the likes of Luciano, DJ T. or DJ Hell and many other fellow DJ’s around the globe and was even re-released by the infamous Get Physical-imprint in 2012 with a bunch of remixes by Joris Voorn, DJ T. and others which made their way onto renowned compilation series like Fabric or Ministry Of Sound Saturday Sessions.
Following up to the massive success of his first single DJ Le Roi soon saw his subsequent productions and remixes being signed to Compost Black Label, Objektivity, Hot Creations, Local Talk, Viva Music and others, with many of them dominating the Beatport charts like 2014’s „Feel On You“, a collaborational effort with Andrea Oliva, or the 2015 reworks of „I Get Deep“ which secured the Top 1 position in the Beatport TechHouse charts for three consecutive months.
2015 also saw the release of DJ Le Roi’s „You Don’t Know EP“ on Berlin’s Upon.You Records which also remained in the Beatport TechHouse Top 5 for another four months period but also set the starting point for a long-term working relationship on the axis Basel-Berlin as the label has become the new home for DJ Le Roi’s productions after the massive success of his label debut.
Working and experimenting with sounds and composition would give him the start of a new adventure, an adventure into electronic music…fascinated by the possibility to tell stories with that music and arouse the emotions of the crowd while playing.
Electronic music is shaped by a social component and because there is no other possibility to get inspired than in a unity…an organic and shared vision was established…creating a musical inspired family! In 2016 Doma has founded Create / Recreate, willing to put music in the center of scenographic projects and to amalgamate music, space and man to temporary objects of art. These events convey holistically aurally experiences for the audience, experiences that lies far beyond the majority of parties have to offer. Doma’s music isn’t “just” made for people’s synapses, it’s also made for their bodies: His sets, sometimes lasting up to nine hours, are nearly reflecting the whole range of electronic music, based on straight techno and carried by atmospheric sounds and individual rhythms – Doma’s music is a bridge-building between the roots of the genre and it’s future.
From the moment she entered this world, Ieva has had music running through her veins. Born in Lithuania, the Basel based artist came in contact with music and instruments when she was a child and it was love at first sight. Her rich traditional music-education was a solid base for her electronic career.
Back in 2014 in Basel’s Lady Bar, Ieva stood at the turntables for the very first time and she immediately knew that this was her passion. She knew that she had found a musical wonder that would fit her artistic and musically creativity in a perfect way, a fascination that has lasted and still grows. Harmony and compact, the red thread is important for Ieva when it comes to bringing tracks together for her groovy, impulsive and flowing dj-sets. Ieva focusses on reduced beats from various styles. She has a heart for musical diversity, which sets the foundation of her sets and one of the very reasons she gets approached and booked by a wide range of clubs and bars.
Michel knows the nightlife since the early days of electronic music. He started djing at the age of 15. Initially he was entirely into trance music and was deeply impressed by producing the sound he was mixing. It didn’t take long, and he build up his own studio, released very successful trance records which gave him the opportunity to play at nearly every important club & festival in Switzerland.
Around 2003, Michel’s buddies Agi Isaku & Andrea Oliva organized throwing sold out ‘Banditz’ parties across Switzerland and Michel was part of it with his evolved techhouse & techno sets. In 2009, Agi took over the Nordstern club in Basel and this was leading to Michel’s residency. Here he can unfold. With his broad musical knowledge and with his skill for crafting stand out sets, he knows how to cast a spell over the crowd. He still loves what he is doing, with the same passion as back then.
Meanwhile, Michel has been part of the Nordstern family for more than a decade. He is not to be excluded any more and his legendary sets will hopefully remain an integral part for a long time to come.
OLIVAN was born in 1989 in a place nearby Basel (Switzerland). His earliest music experiences are rooted in his childhood when he started playing the drums at age 8. Back in the days, he used to jam with his dad (a talented hobby E-guitarist) down in the basement of their house.
OLIVAN was 15 when he encountered DJ-ing for the first time – and was entirely fascinated by it immediately.
OLIVAN experienced his first gigs as a DJ during his teenage years, but still kept the initial bookings in secret. Finally revealing his passion for DJ-ing to his parents, OLIVAN also successfully convinced them to sell the drums in order to purchase his first XONE92 Mixer with the sales revenue.
Opportunities to perform in various locations all around Basel soon got more and more numerous. After a couple of years, he became a proud resident at Nordstern. Back then, he performed as part of a Duo-Project (Spiess n’ Shiffer) with his DJ-partner who himself is now known as Shiffer.
True musician are open to many different styles of music and so is Yare: His roots are not in electronic music as supposed, he once started his career as producer with a weakness for hip hop. But as soon he was old enough to discover nightlife for himself, he discovered also his love for house. Then he followed his intuition by knowing where his future awaits him.
In 2008 he has released his first ep on Deeptown Music where DJ Le Roi was A&R at this time. In the same year he won a remix-contest organised by Traxsource.com and that gained him remix-assignments from labels like Soulfuric Recordings, Gogo Music, Ultra Records and Papa Records. With lots of meticulousness, dedication and talent he has spent the following five years by perfect his skills, the ones you need in the studio and the ones you need for the dancefloor.
In 2013 Henrik Schwarz, the highly respected dj and producer, has posted Yareís bootleg of
Stevie Wonders ìSuperstitionî on his wall and this post found its way to greats like Andrea Oliva, Dennis Ferrer, MAW and Pan Pot who used the track for their sets. From now on Yares days as a good kept secret were over and his career as a composer of high-quality music was launched.
