Stop Making Sense 2014
Thursday 31st July 2014
Clocking up its hottest lineup in its five-year history, Croatia?s Stop Making Sense welcomes aboard Anja Schneider, Hunee, Mosca, Optimo, Psychemagik and Tiger & Woods, who join Nick H?ppner, Gerd Janson, T.Williams, Leon Vynehall and Severino and more for this year?s Tisno trip.

A jewel in the Tisno festival crown, Stop Making Sense brings a whole new level of fun to Croatia, delivering a unique beach party experience in a beautiful location, with an unrivalled lineup, returning to Croatia?s picture-perfect Dalmatian Coast from July 31 to August 3. An essential stop on the festival-holiday calendar, SMS provides an escape, perfectly soundtracked by carefully selected DJs and artists who really bring this event to life.

Collaborating with electronic music?s most inventive collectives, prolific and passionate promoters, world-renowned DJs and artistic personalities, Stop Making Sense combines the tranquillity of a beach paradise with the excitement of a dance music festival. At Stop Making Sense participating crews carefully select artists and DJs, curating lineups that deliver a unique and intimate experience.

A DJ whose relaxed and organic approach produces gently building momentum, Hunee?s sets pack a powerful punch. Disco, house, techno and soul all play their part in a performance of brilliant energy. Tiger & Woods? secretive founders Larry Tiget and David Woods bring their distinctive disco sound, which they call ?future boogie?, and perform behind two giant images of tigers. Residents Mr Solid Gold and Park Ranger also represent London?s foremost underground club Corsica Studios as part of the Trouble Vision crew. Hunee also appears as a special guest of the Abattoir crew.

The ubiquitous ? and universally admired ? Anja Schneider is celebrated for her drive and insatiable thirst for success. Founder of Mobilee Records and a former radio broadcaster, Schneider's name brings with it a carefully selected sound, and features the most promising up-and-coming talent. Anja Schneider appears at the forefront of South London?s Get Diverted crew, who make their SMS debut. Rob Alldritt also appears.

Running Back label co-boss and house and disco DJ?s DJ, Gerd Janson brings an all-encompassing knowledge and passion for electronic music. An in-demand global DJ, well-loved Robert Johnson regular, prolific music journalist, record store staffer and remixer, he appears as part of the Warm crew. Another addition to the Warm collective is Nick H?ppner, a diverse and talented DJ and producer with a deep understanding of house and techno. He has been involved with Ostgut Ton since its inception, enjoys a residency at Berlin's Panorama Bar, tours the world as a DJ, and produces well-received techno for Kompact, Echocord, Brain Math, Liebe Detail, and more. Joining these two game-changers are Ali Tillett and Ollie Seaman.

Sub Club residents and electronic music heavyweights Harri & Domenic are back for 2014, and this time they bring along revered Glasgow DJ duo Optimo ? Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes. Spanning techno, electro and rock sounds, their sound is best described as leftfield. Optimo now take their name around the world, sharing the billing with the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Four Tet, Luciano and Atom Heart.

Production duo Psychemagik have won over the electronic music press with their re-edit wizardry and fresh approach to remixing. Their edit of Fleetwood Mac?s ?Everywhere?, first got them noticed, and remixes, edits and originals have followed, cementing their place as deep crate-digging remix aficionados, lauded for their use of mega-rare samples. Psychemagik head up the Orlando Boom experience at Stop Making Sense. A hot talent whose recent remix projects for Tronik Youth and Klaxons are making a big noise, Kiwi is in full effect with East London party people Orlando Boom and Orlando Boom DJs. A resident of London?s The Nest and a regular at XOYO, this DJ and producer is making sure he?s heard in 2014.

T.Williams, brings his very own The T.Party Movement to Tisno; a collective of like-minded souls whose re-definition of house music has seen the genre bounce back to the forefront, The T. Party Movement will bring the party to Stop Making Sense, keeping revellers bouncing all night long. T.Williams returns, having rocked Stop Making Sense in 2013. His star has risen from the underground, seeing him grow from an acclaimed show on Rinse FM to a monthly In New DJs We Trust slot on BBC Radio 1. He appeared as part of Red Bull Music Academy?s New York residency in 2013, signed exclusively to PMR, the label home of Jessie Ware and Disclosure, and remixed Wretch 32, Lianne La Havas, Disclosure and more.

Underground house and techno mastermind Mosca joins The T.Party Movement. Raised on a diverse diet of hip hop, jungle, rock, reggae and dancehall, Mosca documents his influences past and present into a well-educated manifestation of house and techno. Fascinated by deep and emotional sounds, Mosca presents a history of popular music in electronic form.

Leon Vynehall's eclectic music styling draws inspiration from post punk, classical, funk, disco, soul and techno, with an injection of bass and a distinctive house sound, his productions are difficult to pin down but fire a rocket every time they appear. Leon Vynehall appears with the Aus Music crew, headed up by DJ and producer Will Saul who is in attendance for his second helping of Tisno fun, and bringing a ?deep dubdisco? approach to house and techno.

A member of the Horse Meat Disco DJ collective, Severino?s passion for underground house and disco cuts takes him around the world, playing to crowds who lap up every second. Lovesick is proud to present Severino alongside Blonde Ambition and Lovesick DJs. Croatia Calling bring Luka K and Zero to the mix, as well as Brighton and Mimi. Dalston Superstore residents Abattoir debut with Hunee heading up, with Anomalous DJ and Rufus & Bambi. As Stop Making Sense celebrates a landmark fifth year, 2014 is looking like its most triumphant year ? and there are still more names to be announced!

Located in the Croatian town of Tisno, Stop Making Sense hosts stages including the beach bar, the wood stage, set among the Mediterranean pines and oak trees, and the outdoor nightclub Barbarella?s Discotheque, where the party continues until sunrise. Providing 18 hours a day of music to move you, Stop Making Sense offers house, techno and electro, funk, soul and disco, and boat parties host revellers, taking in the idyllic sights of the coast. Enjoy the tunes at the tiki bar, feast in the town, lounge on the beach, or simply dance in the sunshine like it?s all that matters.

Tickets start at £120, but and special packages are available, including a group FIVE-FOR-SIX ticket offer and on-site ticket and accommodation packages for those seeking seven nights of fun in the sun, with options ranging from £798 for two people, and packages for three and four people too.

George Orwell: We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield. http://protestationdotorg.wordpress.com/category/quotes/?quote=315

Joe Howe "Zequals"

Preparing his first release for French label Sound Pellegrino, Glasgow-based musician Joe Howe (a.k.a. Ben Butler & Mousepad) has shared "Zequels," a frisky cut from his forthcoming EXEP EP. Alternating between segments of automated grinding repetitions and whimsical synth pads, the tune shows off Howe's ability to fuse these dynamic elements into an airy composition of high-spirits and splendid textures. More of Joe Howe's effervescent works can be heard when EXEP drops on April 21.

Philly 360° Rewind: Friends & Lovers Tour With Marsha Ambrosius, MPrynt, Jade Alston, DJ Aktive & GoGo Morrow

Last month, the ever-soulful singer/songwriter Marsha Ambrosius headed out on her Friends & Lovers tour ? and Philly definitely had her back.

For Friends & Lovers, Marsha brought along a dope lineup of Philly talents, including Motown recording artists MPrynt, sultry R&B/pop vocalist GoGo Morrow, soulful singer/songwriter Jade Alston and popular touring turntablist DJ Aktive. And, of course Philly 360 caught up with all the players backstage during their Philly show at The TLA on South Street.

The show was completely sold out and packed with avid Marsha Ambrosius fans, who also known as "Marshians." The reigning queen of Philly soul, Marsha quickly became a hometown favorite after moving to the 215 from London in the early 2000s to form the hit group Floetry. Now, Marsha has officially secured icon status and solidified her position as a leader in the music industry. And just like any great leader, Marsha clearly knows the power of her team?packing her tour roster with an amazing lineup of up-and-coming Philly music stars.

Once the show got started, it was 100% clear that Philly was in the house ? starting with the sultry and eclectic Jade Alston. Though a health scare paused things in her career for just a moment, Alston stepped out with a new lease on life and a successful Kickstarter campaign that funded her upcoming LP, "We Will Live." With a one-of-a-kind sound influenced by her R&B roots, and love for folk music and songwriting, Alston delivered for the crowd.

MPrynt brought us that old school flavor with a new school feel. From covers of classics like 112?s ?Cupid? to R. Kelly?s ?12 Play,? Mprynt gave us their signature great vocals and creative arrangements. They most definitely had the crowd rocking while staying true to their soulful Philly sound.

Next up was GoGo Morrow, who delivered a flawless, high-energy performance. If you've ever checked a GoGo show, then you know she always lays down a tightly produced show, with plenty of feeling, powerhouse vocals, and precise, high-energy choreography. Morrow performaed a full set of original music, including her latest single ?Breaking the Rules? offher forthcoming project.

Once Ambrosius hit the stage, she not only broke the rules?the fiery Philly fave tossed them out the window. Her show was sexy, steamy and full of passion. Her ambient rendition of Sade?s ?Love is Stronger than Pride? captivated the audience. With DJ Aktive rocking alongside her band, Marsha brough new feelings some of her biggest, hottest records. She performed material off her latest EPFvck & Love and of course hit some fan favorites like ?Say Yes,? ?Far Away,? and ?Butterflies.?

And, yes we were there capturing it all. Check it out!


Here's the official Philly 360 recap of Marsha Ambrosius' Friends & Lovers Tour.
