NEW SIGNING: DJ MARFOX SIGNS TO DOMINO PUBLISHING

13/10/15

DJ Marfox’ debut 12” 'Eu Sei Quem Sou' (“I Know Who I Am”) declared his insistence on claiming cultural roots, and roots as an impetus for creative, technological and - perhaps most critically - collective social evolution.

Marfox aka Marlon Silvas’s ancestry traces back to the former Portuguese colony of São Tomé e Príncipe. He began producing and DJing as a teenager, disseminating music via YouTube and independently releasing his music via mp3s in Lisbon. His DJs “di Ghetto” compilation EP produced with his crew by the same name acquired iconic status in urban Portugal and diasporic African communities throughout Europe.  Helping to create a grassroots network of young creatives seeking to breach new territory in sound and culture.

'Eu Sei Quem Sou', released via the then emerging label Príncipe in 2012, articulated brash poetics with complex driving percussion, dark baroque techno, garage, bass, and batida (instrumental kuduro) demonstrating Marfox’ complex aesthetic matrices. Piccadilly records described the release as: “An excellent EP that could only really have come out of a cultural melting pot such as Lisbon, a new direction for dance music on the global dancefloor.”

Amongst other European live dates in 2013 stands out his slot at Unsound Festival which was so widely praised by critics and public attending his set as one of the festival's highlights. His most recent 'Lucky Punch' EP was released early last Summer on Lit City Trax (DJ Rashad, Traxman, ..) and his glorious US live premiere happened at the label's party at The Westway, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy New York Festival. He went back to the States for MoMA PS1 Warm Up Series in NYC, besides making it to L.A. for a Lit City Rave at Los Globos and finished 2014 visiting Brazil for the first time, playing Rio's Festival Novas Frequências and Club Neu in São Paulo. Also topping a fantastic year, his commissioned remix work for tUnE-yArDs "Water Fountain" single got a digital release before December was over.

Marfox has just delivered a new and eagerly awaited EP for Príncipe to be released soon and recently saw his 'Take Off' track included on Warp Record's Cargaa 1 compilation.

NEW SIGNING: BULLION SIGNS TO DOMINO PUBLISHING

13/10/15

Bullion, real name Nathan Jenkins, is a producer, mix engineer and songwriter from West  London. In addition to this he runs DEEK Recordings, a label releasing diverse and worldly  music guided by the mantra 'pop, not slop!'.

 Nathan's productions, achieving acclaim in 2008 with Get Familiar, are full of distinctive  rhythmic arrangements and unexpected changes – owing to a short attention span and acute  attention to detail. With a slew of releases on One-Handed music, he drew the attention of  Young Turks, releasing ‘You Drive Me To Plastic’ in 2011 and soon after, R&S, revealing his  own voice on 2012’s hypnotic ‘Say Arr Ee’.

 Forthcoming is 'Rooster', a mini album for joint release on Greco Roman and DEEK. Alongside  solo output, Nathan produces and writes with other artists. Collaborations include Gwilym  Gold, JUCE!, Rye Rye, Laura Groves & Tic Zogson (as Nautic) and Jesse Hackett (as Blludd  Relations).

 Over the past few years Nathan has been booked to DJ all over the world and in 2010 was  invited to Ethiopia for a music trip with Africa Express. More recently, Paul Epworth (Adele,  Glass Animals) has enlisted him to work on various projects, culminating in an additional  production credit on the Pop Group’s latest LP.
