Derek (D.) Hasty
It needs not be written that one is influenced by the environment from which they stem, although it rings true once again for Hasty. Born into a family of musicians and creators alike, the music bug buried itself in his mind at an early age. From the very first piano lesson as a child, to creating monophonic ringtones for early 21st century mobile phones, being raised on the cusp of the millennial generation provoked Hasty’s skill set to grow comfortably with the technology enveloping it.
With no formal musical education, Hasty moves forward with his music production as a lesson, an adventure, and a challenge. Striving to create boundless music that cannot be pretentiously strewn about into genres and categories, he draws from experience and inspiration. Warm, deep bass tones circa the Miami Bass Movement in the 90’s. Uplifting, euphoric melodies inspired by the classic Trance sound that eventually enticed Hasty into all things DJ. It’s clear that this man’s taste and style is vast, from the 808 snared-hiphop beats, to the chunky-funky classic house vibes. “Do what you love, love what you do.”
For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project he has chosen the track „Gently Squeezed“ to rework it in a cosy melodic way.
Katja, born 1995 in Italy is a half italian-half polish singer, currently based in Milan. Her singing is characterized by a warm, deep voice. Since childhood she has been collecting musical experience through various bands and projects. She started early writing songs with a focus on electronics and is collaborating with different producers.
His strong liking for electronic music led him to explore the realms of ambient, dub-techno and deep-house and in 2010 he signed with BineMusic on which he released two full albums 1549 and Seasons – Les Quatre Saisons, a 12″ vinyl EP called No Comment and featured on one their compilations. Followed a vinyl release on DimbiDeep and several collaborations.
The American Space Agency NASA spotted Lars in 2013 on Youtube and is currently illustrating its scientific explorations videos with his compositions. Following his participation to Mahiane’s Oxycanta III compilation, Lars Leonhard is working on the release of two digital EPs on Ultimae. For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project he has chosen the track „District 9“ to rework it in his own relaxed style. He also created a fantastic remix of Carsten Kellers “Metaphorik” in 2017.
Born in Brazil and raised in California, Lauro Martins was introduced to music at a very young age. Having a father who was a DJ himself gave Lauro access to hundreds of genres of music to listen to and learn about. Playing his first Trance party at the age of 17 in brazil gave him the confidence to follow his heart in the Electronic Music scene of that time.
Now in his late 20’s his love is for House Music, producing Quality Deep and Tech House tracks with a lot of Latin and African inspiration, releasing on Locked Records, Arch44 Music, WTF! Music, Mad Music Recordings and many others.
For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project he has chosen the track „Dreamz“ to rework it. He slowed down the tempo and added his own very deep and minimalistic groove to it.
Max Würden is a drummer with a passion to play everything which is generating sounds. Since 1987 he is a musician in different formations and composing music for movies since 2001. His tracks consist for nearly 80 % of outdoor recorded samples or samples from sessions with different instruments which he edits electronically. He always leaves the sound to the structure of a song, from the rhythm of which the melody forms, thus creating films for the head and for the screen.
He has already released several tracks and albums on labels such as Kompakt Records, Farfield Records, Tonatome, Circuit and Tinnitus Hörspiele. Additional he created works for the Filmhaus Cologne, Nindo Films, ARD, WDR, Toshiba Germany, General Electric, Edition Roadhouse and UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme).
In 2008 he won the 1live PLAN B radio play competition with LUCID DREAMS and the PEER RABEN MUSIC AWARD 2010 / Best music in a short film / Nominated with the soundtrack to the short film BLUFF / CHRISTIAN FISCHER.
For CLSRM Digital he remixed Carsten Kellers track “Radiant feat. Katja” from the release “Totemic”.
Panagiotis „Mr. Lookman“ Loukoumas comes with pure class Tech full of emotion and intelligence. He has already released some killer singles and remixes for labels like V.I.M. Records, Escada, Candyflip, Klik, Drag n’ Drop, Neovinyl records and Mad Music Recordings.
He is also one of the members of INFO – the downtempo/electronica project together with the well known greek DJ and producer Echonomist and the voice of Despoina Terzidou. They have already released two full CD albums and did many quality remixes as well as contributed tracks to a lot of compilations. Additional their tracks have been remixed by artists like Subsonic Park (Gabriel Le Mar and Tim Azary), Nikko Patrelakis and Biodub.

For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project he has chosen the track „Nightshift“ to rework it and created a really stunning straight and moving forward Tech House tune.
Some things are giving birth into the deep, wild, endless warmth of darkness. Nycteus was born in darkness, managed to survive where others can’t, fed with exotica flavoured insects and tropical dark flowers, obey into the power of night, became slaves of the hungry monster.
Nycteus came out from your wildest dreams, live with darkish Bassline grooves and play whenever is dark enough. Their first releases are out on VIM Records and there is more to come.
For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project they have chosen the track „Rainforest“ to rework it and turned it into an experimental Electro Breaks bomb. Also they remixed “Solar Eclipse” from the release “Totemic” by Carsten Keller.
Being a singer, harmonica-, guitar- and bass-player in a couple of blues, rock and country bands for as long as he thinks, pEQy started to work his way into the field of electronical music just a couple of years back. Since 2015 you will find him mostly on tour with the Swinging Rockabilly Band “The Wyatt Christmas Five”.
His musical quest starts just there: „I might be impressed of something someone does. But if it doesn’t drive me emotionally it remains just a show off or simply pure math – not music“.
For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project he has chosen the track „The Grinch“ to rework it in his own relaxed style and gave it his personal melodic note by adding some smoove strings and a laidback arrangement.
Raised on the burgeoning late 90s S Florida rave scene, transplanted in the 2000s to the thriving underground of Los Angeles, Scott Orlans is a fan first, a perspective that shines through in his music. Obsessed with infectious grooves, the dancefloor is his main priority. In fact, you can always catch him on the other side of the booth too.
A proponent of Deep and Tech House, his remixes include Terrence Parker, Sebastian Lomar, Christopher Lawson, and Frederick Klein, with releases on Mad Music Recordings, Budenzauber, City Life, Grooved Music and many others.
For the CLSRM Digital Remixed Project he has chosen the track „Pick up“ to rework it in his own funky and deep way.
As you still can hear his style nowadays is based on his roots of vinyl house sound in the mid 90ies. Sebastian Lomar loves pure underground dance music in different variations. Since his start in 1998 he had DJ gigs with Daniel Steinberg, Terrence Parker, John Lagora, Harry Axt, Sidney Charles, Beatamines, Martinin Broes, Pig & Dan, Mario Aureo, Andy Kohlmann, Ryan Dupree, Santé, Ahmet Sismann, Ingo Boss, Kollektiv Ost, Nils Ohrmann…
