EPISODE 133 WITH MARK TARMONEA
About Mark Tarmonea:
Mark Tarmonea’s passion for music awoke at early age. He was born in Sibiu, as a son of a musician and a painter. But the family came into conflict with the communist regime and had to leave the country before the Romanian Revolution. So they escaped into the US, Canada, Australia and finally arrived in Berlin, Hamburg and then Munich. At the age of seven, Mark taught himself to play keyboard, with 13 guitar, later bass and drums, and he started to write his own songs. "Music always has given me power at this unsteady time“, he says. In the beginning of 20, he started to work as a ghost producer for various artists and earned his first money as a DJ. This gave him the possibility to set up a small studio, so he could produce his own tracks with analog synths and record his vocals. "Music is my vocation, nothing else“.
He is hard-working on new sounds, composes, sings and puts a lot of passion into details. His tracks move between house and techno. In a short time he played as a DJ in many different german clubs and at festivals like Worldclubdome, SonneMondSterne, Helene Beach, Sputnik Springbreak etc. Let’s see where Mark's ambition carries him next.

DJUMA SOUNDSYSTEM BEHIND THE DECKS OF ED 130
About Djuma Soundsystem:
The Norwegian DJ and producer Mikkas, better known as Djuma Soundsystem, has for more than two decades made a top of the line, mind-bending, genre-busting underground music. No one listening to House Music in the past 15 years has been able to miss the modern classic "Les Djinns." Since then he has toured the world many times over, with a particular highlight being when he DJ'ed the last hour counting down to midnight on New Year's Eve 2009, to almost one million people gathered at Baha Beach in Rio De Janeiro. His latest tracks have been released on Crosstown Rebels, Chapter 24, SOSO, Kittball, Sol Selectas, and Get Physical.
Both his musical and sonic standards are incredibly high, both as a DJ and as a producer. If it doesn’t sound just right, in any way, it won’t be played. Instead, it’s quality all the way, and you can hear that. His sound is definitely underground, but as well as making a sweaty basement club heave, he can make any festival crowd go mad with his irresistible mix of spaced out Deep House, lush, warm melodic techno, and deep percussive afro. After many years of playing clubs and festivals all over the world, the beautiful sounds of Djuma Soundsystem is coming soon to a dance floor near you. Stay tuned!
