Serialism & MEOKO present: Save the Amazon Music Marathon

By Event Previews and Reviews, News

The Music industry unites to: ‘Save the Amazon’ on June 26/27/28.


As the destruction of Brazil’s Amazon accelerates due to illegal deforestation and forest fires, the 3 days live stream marathon ‘Save the Amazon’ aims to connect and inform international audiences about the current situation of the natural landmark through music and art.




Meoko and Serialism Records will come together in the weekend 26-27-28 of June along with a team of worldwide celebrated artists and media partners, for the first edition of a unique and heart-felt musical marathon to raise awareness for the future of one of the world’s most vital ecosystems.

During these troubling times, the pandemic has made it difficult for people around the globe to be aware of the latest development in the Amazon forest.

Home to some of the last Indigenous Tribes and traditional communities, the world’s largest rain forest is vital for keeping our climate stable. But with industrial exploitation and forest fires ravaging the region, the Amazon forest is facing unprecedented threats by a greedy industry backed by the present government. Now, with the double threat of fires and Covid-19, indigenous communities and many unique species of animals are in even more danger.

Currently, the Brazilian Congress is close to voting a law derivative from the decree MP910, which allows people that illegally logged or squatted on protected federal lands before December 2018, to purchase such lands at reduced prices.
This law directly relates to and fosters the practice of `land-grabbing´, which could lead to more massive deforestation. Imazon, (a non-profit environmentalist group) found that the measure could lead to a loss of an additional 16,000 square kilometers of the rainforest by 2027.




Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest rose more than 88% in June 2019 compared with the same month in 2018, and more than doubled in January 2020 compared with the same month in 2019.


Indigenous tribes are in great danger, firstly because of the pandemic and secondly, with the political agenda that revolves around their habitat and land. It is time to connect despite our confinement and express our concern for the Amazon as one, the world may not recover from this catastrophic situation. We must act, now.

Toi.Toi. Musik celebrates its 10 years with a massive tour

By Event Previews and Reviews, Reviews

Toi.Toi. celebrates 10 years of passion and community for music announcing the first wave of artists and dates for 2020


toitoi 10 years tourposter1


London’s incredible music scene has given birth to many clubs, promoter brands and deejays. Among these, the Toi.Toi. Musik family (agency, event promoter, and label) has been a staple in the British capital, standing out for its passion and love for music which reflects a particular signature style.


The first Toi. Toi. events could be dated back in 2010 and took place at warehouse locations, eventually leading to nights at Fabric London and other clubs and venues within the city and abroad. Since its inception, the Toi.Toi. Musik crew has ¨focused on quality over quantity, with lineups, sound, and venues that create a unique atmosphere for like-minded people to come together¨. In its agency’s roster, Toi.Toi. can boast artists like Daniel Bell, Sammy Dee, Vincent Lemieux, Ion Ludwig, Topper, Dubtil, Junki Inoue and Doris Nicholas among other respected acts. For many years now, Toi.Toi. has worked on showcasing events with top tier artists like Zip, Margaret Dygas, Craig Richards, Matthew Jonson and Move D to name a few, as regular guests to their stellar line ups.


To celebrate the impressive landmark achievement of ten years running events, Toi.Toi. Musik has announced the first wave of their anticipated 10-year tour for 2020, which started February 21st at Club Guesthouse (Romania) up to June 19th at OFF Week Barcelona, where they’re gonna celebrate its founding anniversary.


toitoi 10 years logo


Brasilian on birth but with evident Italian origins, Toi.Toi.’s founder Isis Salvaterra has lived for two decades now in London. Consequently, Salvaterra founded the Toi.Toi. brand as a natural process that came to fruition with time as she discovered and networked in London’s underground scene due to her deeply rooted passion for music and creative endeavours. Over the years, Isis has networked with artists and creatives from different fields to create Toi.Toi.’s unique team, one that is well-rounded and rich due to its vast cultural diversity. This passion for music eventually established her as a cultural figure in the underground scene in London and abroad. In 2019, she eventually moved to Romania and this led her to take over media, communications and public relations for Club Guesthouse in Bucharest, the heart of Romania’s underground scene. This year she decided to focus only on Toi.Toi. setting the new office in the Sunrise Hub, the newest artist hub in Bucharest designed by Herodot and by Sunrise.



The parties of the first half of the year include six dates in different countries including Romania, Portugal, England, and Spain. The first two events were held in Romania in February and received massive support from the local audience, a natural connection that was meant to happen. The high quality of Toi.Toi.’s event productions and avant-garde ethos are always present at their events and continue to captivate audiences across the globe. Next up in the calendar, Lisbon, (Dan Andrei, Alex Troubetzkoy) with a joint event with the Anexo promoter brand and their residents Elles and Benn. Following their event in Lisbon, London will witness another all-star lineup at the Fold warehouse (Rhadoo, Vlada, Edward, Dubtil and Junki Inoue) and an intimate and perfect after-party at the Lion and Lamb for Easter Bank Holiday to close a memorable weekend in the British capital.


London and Barcelona will be undoubtedly highlights of the tour as these cities are cultural hubs to the international music scene, and as the summer approaches beautiful music and nice weather are the perfect combination to end the tour with a proper smile and endless dancing! Toi.Toi.’s 10-year anniversary tour has started in full swing, and the following dates will be a series of exceptional parties, that will continue to create a beautiful experience that revolves around the passion for music and community.


The remaining TBA lineups are set to be revealed soon, followed by the second series of events to take place in the latter half of 2020. Tickets are available on Resident Advisor. More info at Toi.Toi. Musik’s social media accounts.

Amp Amphia Event v1

Amphia label brings to the stage the elite of the Romanian sound w/ SIT (live), Cezar, Dan Andrei, Amorf

By Event Previews and Reviews, Reviews

Antwerp’s renowned Ampere is ready to host one of the most anticipated nights of this season, welcoming one of the hottest labels of the moment: Amphia. Born from the mind of Romanian studio wizards and musical visionaries Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia, this label has rapidly shaped what we usually used to call the “rominimal” sound, adding to the usual intricated grooves the right dose of fuzzy synths, futuristic basslines and cosmic pads. The label name itself evokes ancient and epic scenarios, leading us to vast and desolate lands, where once performed deeds that are still remembered today.


Amp Amphia Event v1


The battlefield for the night (if we can say so) will be the magic Ampere club. The titans clashing will include label heads – Vlad and Cristi – under their SIT moniker, going live both as a duo and a trio, because they will be joined by extraordinary pianist Mischa Blanos, with whom they form the Amorf group. The Romanian squad will be completed by Arpiar’s associates Cezar and Dan Andrei whom, through a rich and deep musical selection, will enrich the evening unleashing unforgettable peak times tracks.



The Amphia’s sound could be described as an avant-garde blend of endless rolling grooves, deep intense atmospheres, delicate classic orchestra interludes and progressive-ish synths, that can often be found, even together, during the long and epic breathtaking breaks.


Amorf 2



Since its foundation, which goes back over 6 years, the label has given the chance to studio wizards such as Kamran Sadeghi, De Walta, Wareika and Dubtil – up to the latest EP by Rome’s talent Christopher Ledger with AMP021 – to express a truly no-boundaries idea of sound. Obviously, in addition to the names we’ve just mentioned, also appear those of Cezar (AMP010 and AMP015) and Dan Andrei (AMP018).



So get ready to welcome a series of artists, real music surgeons, who in recent years has enchanted people from all over the world including incredible venues like Sunwaves Festival (where they will perform again during the next SW27), Club Guesthouse (Bucharest), Hoppetosse (Berlin), Goa Club (Rome) and The Block (Tel Aviv) to name a few, demonstrating once again how their sound managed to make its way through the maze of the ever-growing “rominimal” movement.

Aleka: another puzzle piece to be added into the Romanian underground scene

By Event Previews and Reviews, Interviews

Coming right from the heart of Romania, Andrei Alexandru aka Aleka is one of the artists that managed to slip easily his catchy sounds and deep unique vibes among the “rominimal” movement. 


Born in Brasov, his passion for everything that concern house, minimal and techno music can be dated back to his early childhood. In 2007, he decided to make his debut in the underground scene but two years later, in 2009, his project started to grow with pure energy and he was joined by his friend Vygo. From then until 2017, Vygo & Aleka performed together many times as residents for ProudlyMadeByUs events.


Over the years, Aleka has shared the decks with many big names in the underground panorama such as Praslea, Raresh, Barac, Livio & Roby, Kozo, Cezar, Priku, Gescu, Alexandra and many more, enchanting the crowd with joyful vibrations in well-known spots like Dor de Munte, Dancing mountains, Kudos beach and UNUM. Nowadays, he is acting in London as a resident of Sound Symptoms. One of the productions that perfectly surprise these is Evening People. Crossing the common borders, in 2017 he founded his imprint Synesthesia.




  • Hi Aleka! How are you? 

Hey there! I’m doing fantastic! Many thanks for your invitation. It is a real pleasure to be here!


  • How did all start in this direction? Is there any person who guides you in this or you were a self-learner?

Ok, so it all began by going to some parties organized by some local clubs and not only, this happened when I was 15 years old. Slowly things escalated, from going to small club parties to bigger electronic music festivals. And this is how I got more and more in love with music and minimal techno scene.

Nobody initiated me, but I had Vygo’s support, whom I met in a club in Brasov, where he was performing quite often, by doing the warm-up for well-known DJs from the techno music scene. He took me next to him and slightly we started to play music together.



  • What kind of music do you approach?

Generally speaking, the kind of music that I approach has influences from all the genres of House music. I cannot say is more a certain genre, I’d rather say a little bit of all.


  • From where do you get your inspiration for your creations? 

I would say that I am not getting inspiration from a specific source, I like to select my music based on my taste, by seeing and thinking what the audience would like to listen when I perform. For me the crowd is the most important, they are the ones you have to make happy. As DJ, if your audience is happy and excited about your music, you feed off their energy!


  • What does it mean for you to be a complete artist?

I don’t know exactly what a complete artist means, I think every artist sees things differently, hears different and does things differently. Saying this, as for me, “complete” does not characterize myself.


  • What story your sets are telling? What is the message you want to deliver to your audience?

I would characterize my sets as being an amalgam of music through which mixing it, I am trying to convey to my audience a happy and unexplained state of positive energy at the time of their listening.


  • Could you please tell us more about your project Synesthesia label? 

This project was born shortly after my arrival in London when I met some people with whom I initially tried to create a concept of parties, but it was a failure and after a few discussions I realized that I better take it on my own and, together with my wife, I said that we will take care of “Synesthesia” brand only as a record label.




  • And why exactly did you choose this name?

Synesthesia means the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body. The name was quite easy to find, my wife came up with this idea, she is dedicating herself to the psychological field. After explaining to me what synesthesia is, we decided that the name is perfect for what we want to transmit through the music we will release at the label.



  • So far, Synesthesia has released 3 vinyl records, in collaboration with Vlad Dinu, Mihai Pol and Hansel. How would you describe each one individually?

What I can say is that each of them has his flavours, they are very different from one to another, which is exactly what I am looking for. I do not want to release the same music style, I want listeners and those who buy music to get always something different.


  • Will Synesthesia collaborate with Romanian artists only?

I will not only promote Romanian artists, but we will also certainly have artists from abroad as well, and this will happen this year.


  • Where we can find Synesthesia releases?

They can be found in most of the online stores such as, Discogs, and in dedicated stores all over the world.



  • What surprises has Synesthesia in store for us?

Stay close! I only can say that you will certainly be pleasantly surprised by what we are preparing in the foreseeable future.

Silverlining Dubs in the Pub i3340

“Silverlining Dubs in the Pub” kicks off at the iconic The Lion and Lamb

By Event Previews and Reviews, Reviews

We are pleased to announce a brand new night at London’s iconic party pub, The Lion and Lamb. Silverlining Dubs in the Pub (i) is the first of what hopefully will be a long series of events tied to the legendary British producer, Silverlining. Sharing the venue’s booth with the London veteran will be 100Hz (live), LE Bass and Sam Don.


Silverlining Dubs in the Pub i3340


To give you an idea of what a night is going to be, we have an exclusive 100Hz mix ready to set you in the right mood!



Few artists have gone through over 20 years of career. Among these, the UK institution Silverlining is one of the most emblematic. To those who were around during the 1990s, his name might evoke feverish scenes of rumbling bass-lines, flickering high hats and dubbed out vocals in cavernous underground spaces. To those hearing it for the first time, there is a freshness and authenticity that emerges from his trademark aesthetic. One thing is evident: the Silverlining sound has proven to withstand the sands of time.


Silverlining-Simulacra 127aSQ3341


His intention, back in 1993, was to have a go at making some records that smelted the shuffle-heavy grooves of US house, the abstract energy of Detroit and deep techno. Before long, he was invited to play his first gigs from Brixton to Berlin to Buenos Aires, which have followed by several appearances over the years on more than 40 countries and hundreds of venues, within which he had the chance to express all his diverse influences and styles, constantly reinventing himself without ever abandoning his underground roots.



His productions span numerous other genres, with a breadth of taste adjoined by an unmistakable yet uncontainable groove that branches out between unique blend of house, techno, electro and splashes of disco. Silverlining, aka Asad Rizvi, has indeed created memorable tracks such as ‘Breezin Thru’ and ‘System Error’ produced alongside Nathan Coles under their Two Right Wrongans alias, which was one of the highlights during Pedro’s set at SW23.



Over recent years, he has released tracks on labels such as Moss Co, Berg Audio, Talman, See Double, Neotropiq, as well as his own Silverlining Dubs label to make the music accessible to ordinary vinyl buyers.




Silverlining will be joined tomorrow by 100Hz, who is another legend of the UK club scene and a close associate of Bosconi Records.



Alongside them will be one of London’s finest underground DJs of the last 25 years, LE Bass, all exquisitely warmed up on an eclectic tip by digger extraordinaire, Sam Don. It’s set to be a massive night of good music and positive vibes on the dance-floor.  1
