Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano

People always ask if there is something in the water in Holland that makes this tiny country churn out so many prolific and successful DJs and producers. Seems there may be some credence to this tale because we have another pair joining the ranks of the Dutch musical super elite.

Welcome to the year of Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano!

These two guys from Amsterdam met in 2006 in the clothing store where Sunnery worked, and where Ryan applied for an internship. While working together they noticed a lot of similar interests, and started working on some music together. From that moment on the two never stopped doing what they love most and they’ve created a big name for themselves since then.

Axwell (SHM) said after playing with them in Ibiza that: “If there were a Dutch version of Swedish House Mafia, it would be Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano.” Impressive accolades for these relative newcomers, who were plucked from their obscure retail jobs back in 2007. It seems their funky house and tribal sound struck a chord with partygoers and, after gaining popularity in their home country, these best friends took their electric energy worldwide.

Sunnery and Ryan DJ sets are becoming the stuff of legend. With hair flopping and body rockin’, there is no time to sit on the sidelines at one of their shows. They embody dance music fully, bringing the crowd to epic peaks, arms in the air and smiles all around. It’s not a genre thing, it’s a music thing, and Sunnery and Ryan convey that passion to the dance floor in a way very few artists can. See them one time and you will understand.

Keep your ears and eyes open, as Nick Martin is here to take the EDM scene by force.

Agent Greg

Over the past fifteen years, dance music DJ and producer, Agent Greg, has established himself as a household name in the dance scene in his home country, Greece, and as one of the most consistent performance artists abroad. One of the most exciting DJs to emerge in the last decades, Agent Greg has spun to rocking crowds from European decks to flooring massive hits down under Australia tracking uplifting sounds in the US, with an inimitable style and uprising energy.

Always a step ahead, Agent Greg is known for his passion and creative talent that has been rooting firmly in the global dance music culture. Having played in the best clubs in Greece, his first residency was in 2005 at world famous Cavo Paradiso, Mykonos, Greece. In Summer 2007, Greg dropped anchor as resident DJ at Paradise Club, Mykonos, Greece, and played with David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Erick Morillo, Bob Sinclar, Afrojack, Steve Angello, Axwell, Ingrosso & many more.

In between gigs in Greece and abroad, Agent Greg is working on fresh productions, releasing brand new remixes for international artists as well as for dance music labels worldwide such as Cube Recordings, Strictly Rhythm, Subliminal and Ultra.

Dino MFU

It’s not that common to come across people whose whole existence is defined through music. But when such thing occurs, it seems as if a star is moving above their heads – always keeping up with the rhythm, of course. Night life in Greece has many reasons to thank one of its core contributors, Dino MFU, one of the most famous house DJs of the country.

His story begins a few miles across the Atlantic Ocean, far away from Greece. In New York, the city which is considered by many house music’s Mecca. Born in the early ‘80s, all the sonic influences he got from his birthplace, served as a catalyst in creating his special music DNA. This was made even clearer when he returned to Greece, in 1993 at the age of 13. His interference with music business starts even before coming of age, as a part of the +Soda team, one of the legendary stages that
marked Athens’ nightlife. While Dino worked there as a waiter assistant, he expressed for the very first time his love for DJing. This love, combined with his natural music sensor and communication charisma, put him by the time he was 20 years old in charge of the big club’s Bossa Nostra public relations, one practice that during the early ‘00s s significantly different than nowadays.

A year later, in 2002, Bossa Nostra is proud to present the unique Music For Us parties with Dino as a promoter. Besides, the abbreviation MFU of his stage name, is dedicated to those unforgettable nights when people of Athens were enjoying themselves, with him being the mastermind behind of it all. This year though played an important part in his life when a few months later he became acquainted with one of Dino’s main influences, Little Louie Vega, the king of house music. This was
pretty much how Dino’s perception of music and life in general changed forever. Their cooperation was inevitable and started after the party that Dino organized for him at Bossa Nostra Noir. It was continued for many years, making Dino his sole promoter of Louie Vega in Greece, with the exception of Mykonos.

The quality of their collaboration is evident on all of these successful stages that were added to Dino’s bio. Apart from his weekly parties at the monumental LuV, starting in 2005, Dino became resident DJ at Club Venue (which was at that time one of the few prestigious dance clubs of Athens), Villa Mercedes, Sixx Athens and Club Glow. Of course, all these were combined with live sets and parties throughout famous Greek clubs. For a person whose music doesn’t bear seasons, summer
could not but hold an important part of his “DJ diary”. Mykonos has been following Dino’s beats and tunes since 2008. He is one of the few Greek resident DJs of world-known club Cavo Paradiso, but also Scarpa’s, the House’s music center at the Chora of Mykonos, where the decks fill with his presence every Greek summer night. As far as Athens is concerned, Bolivar, the biggest summer club, has Dino as its few resident DJs since 2014.

Along with Louie Vega, Dino works together with Timmy Regisford and Quentin Harris, who played a significant role in the formation of his musical identity. His successful sets behind the booth of big venues made Dino’s name familiar to everyone having to do with House music in Greece. Having by his side the talented Chis IDH –whom he included in MFU-, and the hugely popular deep house music producer, Dsf, he starts in 2007 experimenting with musical production. Their MFU remixes can be heard in every venue in Greece and even four of them were distributed under Louie Vega’s label, Vega Records and several other foreign record labels.

His multi layered sound, as a result of his many musical influences, some of them being Barry White, Sade, Michael Jackson and other soul artists, defined him and, along with his success and fame in Greece, allowed him to play venues in New York, Miami, Rome, Australia and Balkans, all of which have swayed in his rhythm, his soulful tracks, who aim to unite his loyal fans. Either way, as Dino believes, there is no perfect venue, but the most important ingredient is the crowd.

The new decade finds Dino locked and load, with even more passion (as ever). Keeping his residencies in the big clubs, the events are multiplying by the numbers. In the summer of 2014, in just two months, he added up 57 events. In 2011, Imany’s big hit “You will never know”, comes to his mixing desk and, along with Chris IDH, they create an informal, but very successful remix, making Imany choose them as a follow-up in her after shows during her Greek tour.

One of Dino’s basic principles is to never compromise and never play something that doesn’t represent him. This, combined with his passion for music and attention to detail, leads him in the creation of his record label, zero10 records in Greece, one of the most vibrant and energetic labels in the country. Zero10 records was formed in 2013 and already has more than 70 releases with 50.000 CDs and some important actions, such as seminars for young kids with love for music and a very successful production, called In House, which was staged in the mainly classical Megaro Mousikis (Megaron Athens Concert Hall) and was buzzing with house and electro tunes.

Zero10 made it to the top in just a few minutes. With the first release of Shaya’s “I’m in love” in January 2013, instantly was the center of attraction, leaving a very promising future. These promises were well kept with the track “On your Name”, which was Dino’s release with the Slick Beats in April of the same year. Very quickly it became a pinpoint of house music and this success is holding even two years after its initial release while the song is included in every up-to-date DJ’s playlist and web views surpass the 3 million. His YouTube channel also hosts live sets on camera and by looking at the numbers of official downloads
and hearings of his songs in the biggest musical platforms (YouTube, Shazam) no one can deny that success is something that cannot be hidden. At the same time, zero10 records welcomes two awards, one platinum for “On Your Name” and one golden for the collaboration remix with Agent Greg and Dsf of “Falling” by Greek band Playmen.

Dino followed the same successful path during 2015 too, enjoying every side of music, touring Greece non-stop and preparing for fresh and original musical concepts that are about to become the talk of the town. An enthusiastic professional as a producer, creator and of course, DJ.

Xenia Ghali

“Rising sensation Xenia Ghali finds success with Places” Huffington Post, 2017

A DJ, producer, songwriter and classically trained musician, Greek artist Xenia Ghali has shaken up the dance music scene with her recent, stellar emergence. After working with industry heavweights such as Pitbull and the Grammy-nominated Wyclef Jean, Xenia really set the tone for her own career with her biggest track yet in the summer of 2016, ‘Under These Lights’, which reached #1 in the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart and was followed up with ‘Places’, which also hit the top spot, reaffirming her abilities and providing proof, if any was needed, that Xenia is a talent that is set to remain at the top of the charts for the long haul. Displaying a clarity of vision when it comes to her artistry, Xenia creatively directs all her music videos to ensure her ideas are realised. Xenia is continuing to turn heads and prick ears in all the right places. Xenia’s latest single ‘Stick Around’, recently dropped on EDX’s Sirup label, complete with music video, and currently stands at just over 500,000
plays on Spotify, after being included in some of their most followed official electronic playlists, including mint and Dance Hits. The Track has been supported by the likes of Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Sam Feldt, Swanky Tunes, label head EDX and Mike Williams to name a few.

Owner of the independent label Funky Sheep Records, Xenia walks the line between mainstream success and underground credibility. Both an enigmatic and dynamic
figure, Xenia Ghali’s DJ sets are defined by their combining of soulful house and pulsating beats, bringing together shimmering synth melodies and vintage groove laden rhythms for a unique brand of modern electronic dance music. Additionally, remixes for top-tier pop stars such as Pitbull (feat. Chris Brown) have demonstrated a keen ear for reinterpretation and undoubtedly bear her distinctive signature.

Having DJed on Greece’s version of The X Factor, composed the soundtrack for internationally renowned designer Michael Costello’s Fashion show video, appeared in issues of People Magazine, Runway and Madame Figaro and on leading publications such as Billboard, The Huffington Post and AOL, it is clear that her reputation is steadily building across the planet. This is reflected in her association with global brands Adidas and G-Star Raw in her native Greece and standout shows at notable clubbing institutions including Ministry Of Sound London, Cielo New York and Cavo Paradiso in Mykonos, amounting to standout sets in New York, Miami, Chicago and Athens, as well as festival performances at the likes of Color Day Festival as a headliner, Lindos Summer Paradise, Lake Party and River Party alongside acts such as Erick Morillo, Steve Aoki, Martin Solveig, Don Diablo, Dubvision and Jay Hardway.

Xenia Ghali is making sizeable waves in the dance music community, as well as the music industry at large, and remains an artist worth keeping an eye on through 2018 as she ascends the ranks ever higher.
