Sitting at the forefront of the electronic music scene is a brand that has kept its integrity and vision to support forward thinking Dj’s, artists, and producers alike. It’s clear perception and commitment to expression through the sound medium allows the necessary conditions for creativity, which has seen it grow in reputation from a little known local series to the benchmark against which any new series is measured.
The ‘Balance’ CD series harks back to an era when dance music wasn’t just a commodity; the series a constant reminder of the tightrope it walks by capturing an elusive ideal: combining the excitement of old with a cutting edge approach.
The official launch of Nick Warren’s Balance 018 earlier this year saw it take-off in style, headlining the ‘Balance Series – Miami 2011’ which saw Nick Warren, Deetron, Henry Saiz, Desyn Masiello, Paolo Mojo, Chris Fortier, Anthony Pappa and Rollin Connection all get behind the controls in one massive night that is still being cheekily talked about now reflecting on the WMC 2011.
Now… its time to hit the home turf with a series of parties planned to showcase the very best electronic artists the global scene has to offer.
The first local event of 2011 will celebrate the release of Guy J’s new artist album ‘1000 Words’ on Bedrock Records…
Balance is proud to present:
Guy J is a young, much-in-demand, innovative producer, DJ and live act, whose infectious production talents, busy worldwide touring schedule, electric live shows and groundbreaking debut album on Bedrock ( released in 2008 ) have all led to this point and the creation of his stunning new masterpiece: “1000 Words”.
Along with a handful of his fellow countrymen; this young Israeli (now based in Antwerp; Belgium) is now at the forefront of a movement towards the melody-rich and emotionally charged roots of the house music spectrum. “1000 Words”, spread over 3 CDs on John Digweed’s forward thinking Bedrock label showcases the extraordinary talents of Guy J. His productions have constantly earned praise and gained many fans for their tight, driving beats, shimmering, warm synths and blossoming, journey like arrangements. Across 3 CDs he is given the space to explore the exciting, timeless space between ambient, experimental electronica, techno and beyond. Throughout, he constantly maintains a melodic and highly emotive core, creating a body of work structured and presented in a highly creative way.
