The Sweatbox at Elysium

 

Bazz  JONNYVICIOUS

Art Xtreme Media and Elysium Bar + Terrace are bringing to the fore front a brand new concept called The Sweatbox at Elysium’s 32nd level Bar that will be showcasing every Saturday starting Tomorrow. The first edition is dedicated to bloggers countrywide and it’s a thank you note for all the features and mentions they have made over time. Lifestyle, photography, cars, fashion or music bloggers are expected to celebrate the first edition of The Sweatbox in style as

Elysium’s top bartenders will be preparing new cocktails, specifically for this occasion . The “Writers Block”, “Femme-blog-Tal” , “Lifestyle” and “Passhfash” are the exquisite signature drinks concocted for this occasion. Sweatbands, a lot of photographs and a jolting musical experience is certainly expected this Saturday. The brand new Sweatbox is meant to showcase local and international DJs playing extended sets of classic house edits, melodic techno, groovy tech house and anything in between in order to create a lively atmosphere and a friendly vibe. Versatility is the word for the concept behind the Sweatbox, as musical variety and a friendly vibe are a must for the lively house and techno sessions extended till late enough.

As house/techno music lovers are no longer a minority, for those that are looking for a replay of the night, or that simply don’t fit in the tiny Sweatbox, all editions will be video broadcasted. Saturday 21nd November is going to be a lively interaction between two DJs that are known for their feet stomping sets: Jonny Vicious and Type 1 . JonnyVicious (MY) aka Jonathan Charles is known for his very enthusiastic, minimalistic and quirky approach to music and his special music selection. He is a very surprising performer and he will deliver nothing but quality vibes. JonnyVicious cannot simply be placed in a category where the listeners would know what to expect, from the selection of tracks till the musical genre. That is partly due to his very broad musical perspective where all genres, influences and styles are blend in one . His ability to create a hypnotic vibe stems partly from his trained dancefloor ear. His sets are unexpected, they ooze good mood and the nearly mesmerising musical voyage is making it nearly imperceptible to the public’s ear as in when and how he shifted from a funk track to techno. The blend, whilst imperceptible is simply exquisite. Intuitive and diverse, he enjoys mixing in sounds of far and wide, adding in the bells of religious controversy and food to his house and techno sets. His delightful and charismatic personality are adding to the mix. It is one of the Djs that, no matter what and how he plays is certain that he has the uncanny ability to seduce any crowd.

He is currently leading the successful “Nobody Listens to Techno” night that recently celebrated 4 years of existence. Former resident of Frangipani Club with his “Frisky” and “Fringe” nights and Passion Lounge with “ High Society” are just a few of his musical prints in the industry. He played alongside benchmark names of house and techno industry heavies both local and international such as Stereoheroes (FR), Drop The Lime (US), Sex Panther
(US), Alle Farben (DE), Nakadia (TH), Jungle Jerry (AUS/MY), Rob Harnetty (UK), Niina
(SWE), Blond:ish (CA), Frank Mueller @ Beroshima (DE), Wankelmut (DE), Teenage Mutants (DE) and Matthias Meyer (DE). He currently holds multiple residencies at Calavera, Pisco and Elysium Bar and Terrace, where his most recent night “Glitz” and more recently his Sunday “Pop Tart”, are granting him a brilliant musical future. Type 1(UK) aka Barry Sanders will be joining forces and this will only mean double the dancing and double the musical euphoria. Type 1 has a very versatile approach to music- from techno live sets to UK Garage, he has the ability to command even the most selective party goers. Whilst their experiences are hailing from different backgrounds, it is ultimately what will confer The Sweatbox its own flavour . Type 1 AKA Baz Sanders, has been deeply immersed in the dance music scene for well over a decade as a DJ, producer, label owner & promoter. Still seen as a new name to some, he has amassed an impressive back catalogue of releases having released well over 60 tracks and remixes across 15 different labels which include Little Mountain Records (Sander Kleinenberg), Italo Business, Tech Head, Minimtrax, Mad Hatter, Heatflow, Whirlpool Sex

Music, Itch and many others. Growing up in the outskirts of London and buying records at a very young age, London is where he earned his apprenticeship and plied his trade full time for almost 10 years. This has seen him gain residencies at some of London’s best clubs such as, The End, The Cross, The Fridge, Fire & The Mass. Moving his music to new ears, he’s guested at other major London clubs including Brixton Academy, Ministry Of Sound, Cable, SE One, The Egg, Pacha, 54, Coronet, just to name a few. He has also toured Ibiza on several occasions, which included him playing at the super clubs Eden and Es Paradis and other famous spots such as Café Del Mar & Mambo’s. Driven by the desire to create his own music, he has accepted the challenge of creating his own sounds. Type 1 attained a degree in music production in 2008 and started his own production trail. This has subsequently led him to releasing and remixing on multiple labels and further on,starting his own label :‘Malfunktion Records’, which has been hugely successful from the start .It has scored 2 No.1’s on Trackitdown.net and the rest of his releases have made it into the top 20. His tech house productions and DJ sets are always full of energy, just like his personality. It is the support of Type 1’s productions that speaks for itself with A-listers such as Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Chris Liebing, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Mark Knight, Marco Carola, Jon Rundell to name a few. Type 1 now resides in Kuala Lumpur after living in Koh Phangan, Thailand, famous for the monthly Full Moon parties where he is holding a residency and guesting at the many other parties around the island which include some of the huge festivals in the Koh Phangan jungle, which see thousands of party goers flock to every month. He has also guested at every major underground venue in Bangkok.

2016 is looking good for Type 1 on the tech house production side ,having a solid release schedule over the next 12 months .
