Big City. Bright Nights compilation on Lan Muzic

Big City. Bright Nights is a retrospective of Exercise One's imprint Lan Muzic and will be the labels last release. The duo have decided to finalize the last chapter of their brainchild and compiled their favorite tracks as a final memory. They are more than happy about all the things that spawned out of Lan and will now re-adjust their focus to former sub-label Exone.

Looking back the Lan catalogue features an impressive number of producers that moved on to impacting the techno world. The compilation includes remixes by Luciano, Alex Smoke, Efdemin and Exercise One alongside original works by Peter van Hoesen, Donato Dozzy, Touane, Tassilo (Pan Pot), Jacopo Carreras and Arne Michel. Take a listen and let the Lan gang seduce you into their world of intricate techno.

Five Questions With... Hector

We recently caught up with Hector after he enjoyed a holiday in Thailand to find out how it went and what he has coming up in 2010. Check out the interview here.

You've just come back from Thailand, what did you like/ dislike and what was your biggest adventure? Did you encounter any problems as a Mexican, based in London, to be traveling there?

Thailand was amazing! I absolutely adored Koh Tao, which is a small island 20 minutes away from busy and touristy Koh Phangan and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Our biggest adventure was probably our trip to the Sanctuary joga centre. After our disappointment with Koh Phangan, we planned the joga trip, but the only way you could get there was by a small fishermans’ boat or through the jungle. Of course the driver never mentioned that there might be a lot of wind when we were out at sea, and we ended up praying for our lives. The waves were huge and came right over the small 4 people boat, our bags almost went over board and on top of it all the engine died in the middle of the sea. It was an experience and a half, and definitely a story to remember. After a while we met up with my girlfriend's friend which was great as we were taken off the tourist track and saw some of the underground and went to some cool bars hidden underneath the Bangkok trees. Actually even though I’m Mexican, everyone thought that I was Thai, which saved us some money!

You played for The Zoo Project, who organise some of the biggest parties in Ibiza, how was it? We know that you are also working on the first compilation for their new series - how's that going and what should we expect?

I played for Graeme, who is one of The Zoo Project managers, a coupIe of years ago when he was running Riff Raff. It was thanks to him that The Zoo Project invited me over to play for them last summer in Ibiza for the first time, and straight after my set they asked me to come back to play for their closing event. Just a couple of weeks ago I played for them in Koh Samui Monkey Bay, which was a lovely intimate event with a couple of hundred people. It is such an honor to be asked to make a compilation for them, that I want it to be an amazing piece of work. It’s also the first time I have made a CD compilation so that adds to the pressure, but to be honest it’s more exciting than frightening. For the mix, I am using mostly exclusive tracks and unreleased material from artists including Anthea & Celler, Pablo Cahan, Alex Picone, and many others including some of the Zoo Project’s residents, as well as some of my own material. I am really looking forward to putting all the tracks together and seeing it ready in its full package.

In May, mobilee turns 5 years old and will be releasing a compilation featuring exclusive tracks from the mobilee artists - how is your track coming along?

I have known Anja and Ralf for about three years, and when I released my track ¨La Raza¨, I had lots of support from them. We met up again the same year in Sonar and that was when we talked about me doing something for mobilee. I have always had a lot of respect for the label and I am really happy to be a part of the crew for almost a year now. For the five years anniversary compilation I am planning to do something different and something very special. I am going to start by going through all the mobilee releases from the past five years and then come up with something which is inspired by them. I don’t know what the other mobilee artists will be doing for this compilation but I am sure it will work out really well as a whole.

You have recently started working on a new project - Los Vatos - can you tell us a bit about it and where you want to go with it creatively?

Originally it was me, Seth Troxler and Shaun Reeves. Now the project is just me and the idea is to use it to explore different kinds of styles of music from my usual sound, which is usually deep house and techno. I would like to use Los Vatos, for example, to play around with disco, techno, hip hop, soul and funk etc. I plan to use many more vocals from special guests, who I cannot reveal at the moment, but when the projects with each individual artists have been completed I will let you know! I am definitely considering touring under the project name Los Vatos and I want to include guests in my live acts. I am also planning on working on a Los Vatos album, but first I need to finish my own album.

What are your expectations for 2010?

I aim to continue working with professional people and labels, to keep on working hard, and, of course, keep bringing good music to the audience. I want to spend more time in the studio this year, but I will also still be on the road quite a bit. It’s going to be a big year that’s for sure- there are so many interesting things happening and so many different projects, I’m going to be very busy!
