Later on, “The World As I Live It EP” for the Hamburg-based label “Room With A view” receives praises from top dj's such as Atjazz or Jimpster, followed by “Too Much” being ranked in “Resident Advisor's 2011 most played tracks”.

Blake Robin aka Luxxury is Los Angeles based producer, bandleader and DJ. He has been making waves for the past year with his controversial LUXXURY edits, a series of dubby, slow disco remixes highlighting buried gold in classic songs. They also feature relatively well known AOR tracks that wouldn't normally figure in a 'cool' DJ set (Bee Gees, Blondie, Fleetwood Mac), in hopes of making the familiar more exciting again by unearthing unexpected treasure...like, who knew how sick that bassline buried under the synths in Foreigner's "Urgent" was?
Launched in July 2013 with Madonna "Vogue (Luxxury edit)", the once-per-month series received immediate support from Greg Wilson, Psychemagik, Ursula 1000, Junior Sanchez, Goldroom and hundreds more. His "Hotel California" edit, launched at the top of 2014, injected new life into the familiar classic rock song giving it a sexy, dubbed out beat and transforming the vocals into a vocoderized robot. It was a runaway smash, attracting nearly 300,000 Soundcloud listens, ink from the Wall Street Journal (who published a front page article about him and his unusual performances) and offers from dozens of labels.
Soon thereafter, takedowns resulted in a major internet kerfluffle, all of which served only to boost Luxxury's profile and add to his mystique. For his DJ aka "Live Remix" sets, Luxxury remixes his collection of stems on the fly using Ableton Live and his trusty Akai APC40 Mk2, resulting in a one-time-only experience of mostly unreleased and totally exclusive Luxxury edits.

He got it equally right with his second release, the anthemic 'I Don't Love You', also on Catapult which featured the vocal talent of Jessy Allen. These releases put The Organ Grinder under the spotlight and he was soon invited to play his career highlight gig at Berlin's famous Panorama Bar.
A collaboration, with Chesus of Darkhouse Family and CRST fame, entitled Audio Porn on Addison Groove's newly Lost In Translation label.

German DJ Producer duo Coeo are making a serious impact at the moment, and rightly so. In 2014 they had several releases on established labels such as Gomma's sub ‘Toy Tonics’ or New York's ‘Let's Play House Records’. Their passion for four-to-the-floor grooves and detailed arrangements was bound to demand people's attention and their tracks have been featured heavily on mixes of artists like Purple Disco Machine, Todd Edwards & many more. Their originals have had high profile remixers such as James Welsh, Steve Huerta & The Revenge (just to name a few) tackle their arrangements.
The duo itself consists of Florian Vietz and Andreas Höpfl, 2 guys, who met during high school and shared a mutual love for Hip Hop and Soul music. Some years later they fell in love with House music and spent more and more nights Djing in bars & clubs of their hometown Munich. The duo's name, ‘Coeo’, is a latin expression, which comes up with a deeper meaning: Though hard to pronounce, it can be translated as “to unite“ or “to form an alliance“ and makes absolute sense for a DJ Duo who's aim is to bring people together on the dancefloor.
Artists like Boys Noize, Laurent Garnier, Kasper Bjorke, Jimpster or Tensnake have showed support for their productions & Traxsource listed them as in the top ten Deep House artists of 2014. You’ll be hearing a lot more from this duo in the years to come.
