What can be said about our Rhythmatic journey in 2010? So many highlights and so many memories. Marco Carolas appearance for Rhythmatics 3rd Birthday; Matthias Tanzmann & Davide Squillace playing a 4 hour set; UK Exclusive, Carl Cox playing at Rhythmatic in Greece last summer after 5 years away from the Greek dance scene; and Mixmag declaring “RHYTHMATIC One of Londons most exciting underground raves…” Nov 10, plus many more great moments.

Cargo has now become our new home as well our Warehouse parties; last year we threw 3 great parties with Shaun Soomro, Ekkohaus and Steller and 2011 will see Rhythmatic hosting 6 very special events, showcasing some of the hottest underground artist and producers, and a couple of showcases, just to make things a bit more interesting. And what can be said about our first guest for 2011, Patrick Kunkel?

The musical roots of Patrick Kunkel are based in 1997 and connected with the project B-Side together with his former partner. Intending to avoid any confusion with other bands, the project was renamed to the Nut Runners, in Germany a synonym for freaky people working with machines.

In the same year he started to work for the Frankfurt based label Cocoon Recordings, where he is responsible for the digital distribution. In 2006 his first Nutrunner vinyl was released on Silver Planet, including a remix by Oliver Koletzki, who is responsible for the famous “Der Mueckenschwarm” on Cocoon Recordings.

Several other releases followed among them “Sleeping in a Bass Box”, which was produced together with Guy Gerber, and his second vinyl “Lady In Bed” on the British label “Silver Planet”. In the beginning of 2009 Patrick started to focus on studio work again with his former partner M.in. and so, in the late summer 2009 several records will be released on Micro.fon, International Freakshow and keinemusik.

In April 2010 his first remix on Cocoon Recordings was released. Several other releases followed, amongst them his EP on Circle Music, Express Yourself. In the same year he also produced the Ibiza-Spotlight-Podcast for Cocoon Recordings, which represents the sound of the label for the summer 2010.

There will be a debut appearance by Ceri Cross – Ceri’s signature sound is a blend of all things house and techno. She can hold her ground and keep the floor just where it wants to be, in all situations; from deep dark and dubby tech, to main room underground house. From a young age she didn’t just love dance music, she was obsessed by it. The next natural step was production, so she has locked herself away in the studio recently to work on her first EP, as well as remixes for various other producers to be released very soon.

And of course we welcome back our Resident Stathis Lazarides, a DJ who over the last years has developed and progress our Rhythmatic sound.
