Claire Ripley joins forces with Zeitgeist to debut on Highgrade Records…
Having already released music on some of the worlds biggest labels, frequently performed at legendary London clubs like The Key and The Aquarium, and even managed to run her own successful label, ‘Phobic Records’, Claire Ripley has become one of the most exciting names in the international House and Techno scene in the last few years. Her debut release came out on none other than the renowned ‘Dessous’ label – an impressive start for a rookie producer.

The guys at Wiggle seem to be over the moon to announce that they’re back at the Paramount for New Years Eve and after last years party in such a venue, who can blame them! You simply couldn’t ask for better views of London than what you get from the 31st floor of the Centre Point building and you definitely couldn’t ask for a better party either! All the Wiggle’s at Paramount have been sell outs since they started there back in June 2010 and more of the same can be expected as to welcome in 2012.
Wiggle have a quality night lined up, welcoming to the console a DJ/Producer that is so far up Wiggle’s street…
Whether its through his productions, radio shows, compilations, parties or club sets, D’Julz has been at the forefront of electronic music since his career first began back in 1992. A firm DJ and fan favourite alike, his ability to transcend genres and trends has seen him hold one of the most consistent levels of success of any modern day DJ/Producer. A run of form that is at its strongest, today.
1997 saw the birth of the now legendary, ‘Bass Culture‘ parties at Paris’ Rex club. The monthly party has now become the longest running event in the clubs history, and in 2009 gave its name to D’Julz‘s brand new, and highly successful record label.
Having released his debut productions in the mid 90′s, it was the early 2000′s that really saw him make an impact. His music has now featured on some of the worlds finest labels, releases and remixes for the likes of Ovum, 20:20 Vision, Dessous, Pokerflat, Safari, Real Tone, Get Physical, Mobilee, Rekids, Systematic and 100% Pure have all become essential weapons in the sets and record boxes of the world’s elite. In recent times D’Julz has reached a new level of production excellence. 2008′s “Just So You Know” on Ovum and ‘“Fleurette” on Circus Company became instant classics, and his current release for the label “Rotondo” is well on its way to achieving similar status. His remix of Slam’s “Positive Education” on Soma, and his edit of Anonym’s “Lov Is Easy” on his own Bass Culture label have ruled the DJ and download charts alike.

French born artist Arnaud Le Texier started Safari Electronique in London, 2005. An artist with plenty of knowledge and substance behind him, Arnaud had been on the electronic music scene for over 10 years before commencing with Safari Electronique. Arnaud‘s career dates back to 1990 when he first began managing record shops and building what is now a huge archive of knowledge, taste and musical dedication to his name. His five year residency at Paris’s Queen and memorable sets around Europe over the years that followed perfected Arnaud‘s DJing skills, earning him his spot in the worldwide scene where he continues to this day to be a prominent DJ and production figure. At the beginning of 2006 Arnaud decided to live in London where he played at T Bar, Minimal Hospital, Secret Sundaze, Bread & Butter, Half Baked, Multi Vitamins and is a regular DJ at Fabric since 5 years. Last September he made quite of an impression when he rammed room 2 of Fabric for Safari Electronique 5 years anniversary, along side Antonio De Angelis, D’Julz and David Labeij. In 2009 Safari Numerique was born, the little sister of Safari Electronique. On this digital version Arnaud wants to push more upcoming talents with a sound more deep house and deep techno. Arnaud is a perfect blend of natural talent and raw flare with very distinctive music. He produced different EP’s & remixes for Bass Culture, 20:20 Vision, SCI + TEC, Multivitamins, Climatic Sounds and Children of Tomorrow. Through his focus on music quality and originality, as well as his performances on an international level, Arnaud Le Texier is becoming one of the leaders in electronic sound.
Over the past 3 years Claire has stormed in to the House and Techno scene with an array of stunning releases, her first major E.P getting signed to Steve Bug’s highly respected imprint Dessous Recordings. Becoming a regular feature on the label she not only showcases her original work but also remixing for the Dessous Best Kept Secrets Release.
With 2010 being a big year for Claire she went on to also feature for several other labels such as Neurotraxx, Dogmatik Records and London based Murmur having her huge hit “Slow Loris” remixed by Solomun which gained respect and plays from none other than Richie Hawtin. 2011 sees Claire pushing the same tempo with a strong output of forthcoming scheduled releases on Gorge’s Katchuli and 1Trax with a remix of Robert Owens “I’ll Be Your Friend” alongside Jamie Jones, Dyed Soundorom, Soul Clap & Gadi Mizrahi, Matt Tolfrey & Inxec and more. Its easy to see why Claire was featured as ‘Keep An Eye On’ in Mixmag in 2010.
