Mat.Joe
Mat.Joe
Mat.Joe. Matze and Johannes, two young men with a Hip Hop and House affection conquering Berlin.

Their productions come to life in a Neukölln backyard where studio equipment and DJ decks meet desiccated plants. A natural development when music has become the top priority from dusk till dawn.
Back in 2006, Rap, Breakdance and Skateboarding were the passions that made them best buddies and this deep connection is reflected in their music, again and again. In 2008, they formed the producer team Twomanics and concentrated on authentic and credible hip hop productions for independent artists. Originally from Hannover, they moved to Berlin for new artistic challenges and after MySpace, mixtapes and candy, Mat.Joe have found their own style: crispy Housebeats paired with rhythmic Soul and Hip Hop elements. The result is deep and dancefloor-qualified, warm and rough.
Inspiration is found everywhere between subway rides, late night showers and favorite bars. New ideas are kept manically on every smartphone nearby. This is sound autism at the highest stage. Mat.Joe's love for music and the ambition to improve are the main ingredients that keep the engine running
Nhan Solo
Nhan Solo
Berlin based DJ/Producer and label owner Nhan Solo set off on his mission for dominance of the Deep House music scene in 2012, and in the 4 years that have followed, his enterprise Mother Recordings has provided the perfect haven for him and like-minded musicians to showcase their talents. It´s a healthy bunch of friends, artists and creative heads. Their individual life stories and experiences help to shape a very personal vision of contemporary House music, that received instant positive feedback from the first release on.

An artist who’s talent, vision, and enthusiasm for everything dance related is instantly recognisable upon introduction. Nhan’s personality is infectious and it is no surprise that such esteemed artists as Daniel Dexter, Audiojack, Kevin Knapp, Purple Disco Machine or The Revenge were instantly keen to work with his label from the moment it came about. His personal continuous musical output can or will be found on labels such as Andre Crom´s OFF Recordings, Solomon´s 2DIY4 and of course Mother Recordings. His tracks also have been remixed by respectable members of the scene like Monkey Safari, Ian Pooley, Oliver Dollar, Martin Dawson Kiki, Spencer Parker, Adriatique - just to name a few.

His DJ career took off in a big way in 2013 with European gigs with almost weekly occurrence and sold out South American tours in Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Mexico, Ecuador, Panama, El Salvador on the agenda. His production talent was also beginning to shine through on a more recognisable scale from a Beatport prospective. 3 Top 10 Deep House tracks ‘Easy’, ‘Friends’ and ‘Tell You’ drawing wide acclaim from everybody within earshot, with high profile support from such top talent as Solomun, Claptone, Soul Clap, Dyed Soundorom, Maya Jane Coles, Adana Twins, Tensnake and more…

The following year, Nhan continued his upward rise through the industry with high profile collaborations with Hip Hop legend Kurtis Blow, dutch´s finest Stee Downes and the amazing Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Cari Golden. Busy times indeed from Nhan but as he pointedly explained “He believes that everything must be done with passion and a true sense of sincerity. And I´ve got plenty of both to go around! :)” The world was his for the taking!

2015 was when the Mother imprint really started reaching to the masses, and huge releases by artists such as Superlover (Love Machine), Martin Waslewski (Gerd), Mat.Joe (Swipe The Card) amongst others really made people in the industry start to get a sense of the close family roots that this label endlessly stood for. A ‘mother´s touch’ of all things joy, warm and sincere was what real dance music followers craved and Mother massively represented.

2016 has been a year where Mother have found the Top 10 with every Ep that they have released. With 6 Eps in the Top 100 at one time, it’s clear that this power label is here for the long-term! To date they already have 3 Beatport Deep House #1 hits from Mat.Joe, David Keno and Superlover, were also Beatport Breakthrough Label for 2015. A whole host of Showcases have been huge successes in places such as London, Barcelona (Sonar), Berlin, Zurich, Montanita, and Amsterdam (ADE) and Playa Del Carmen (BPM) soon to follow. Mother Recordings and Nhan’s story has a lot more chapters ready to be scripted over the coming months and years! 🙂

Punkphunk
With every transition and twist of an EQ knob, PunkPhunk entices his crowd to join him on a musical journey, as he carries listeners through time and space, soaring high through piercing treble notes and down through the valleys of warbling bass in an emphatic search of freedom from the burgeoning limitations of day-to-day life. Like an eagle, PunkPhunk refuses to be caged. From isolating and powerful vocals, to pumping bass lines, his sets keeps the crowd on its toes and draws them in even closer as he tells a story each and every time he hits the decks. In addition to his djing, his liberated spirit shines in his impressive house resume, for he is not only a dj, but a producer, and promoter as well. In-fact, he is a veritable triple threat that has been in the scene for nearly 20 years. The coming years bring much promise for PunkPhunk, as he sets his sights abroad in the hopes of spreading love all over the world, one dance floor at a time.
