Roland Clark feat. Dawn McClain present „7th Wonder“

Roland Clark feat. Dawn McClain present "7th Wonder"After their welcome return last month, Jellybean Soul continue to increase the heat this Summer, unleashing ‘7th’ Wonder’ from US house music don, Roland Clark. Featuring the exceptional vocal power of amazing singer Dawn McClain, ‘7th Wonder‘  is a soulful groove armed with an infectious sax hook with a vibe firmly planted in the soil of underground house. Also on the package is a monster big room ‘Transplant Remix’ deemed to rock the party this Summer!

DJ Roland Clark is a songsmith / producer/ DJ and vocalist whose past aliases include Digital Pimps, South Street Player, Urban Soul/Dark Clark/and his latest alter ego Jesus Jackson, which pegged the 3rd season opening of Greys Anatomy song ‘Running On Sunshine': Roland Clark is also featured vocalist on many Fatboy Slim releases including ‘Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars‘ and ‘What Da Fuck &“Song for Shelter‘. Roland also carved himself a nice slice of house music’s pie with his phenomenal deejaying and production skills. His contributions infuse many artists best works, including Armand Van Helden‘s gorgeous „Flowerz. Quite simply,  he has definitely earned his place in history as one of THE voice’s of House Music. Quote: „If House is a nation, I wanna be president!“ (DJ Roland Clark) much like a undeniable storm working with such deejays and other producers much like himself such as Todd Terry, DJ Chus, Mark Knight, Meat Katie, Rodger Sanchez and  Erick Morillo, just to name a few.. Roland sounds if need be compared would be much like a chameleon going from a soulful sultriness to a hard house and techno. He also own his own dance music label – Delete Records, a home for many of his own productions working with featured artists such as Robin S, Dawn McClain and Madam Simone, among others.

You’d better get a good night’s sleep before heading down to Katowice, because this is going to be one intense weekend.

But before we get to the festival program, we’d like to introduce a few more of the artists we’ve invited to perform in Katowice this year:

The Soft Moon
Oakland-based Luis Vasquez is a loner type and the The Soft Moon would probably have remained a solo project, were it not for the musician’s drive towards an absolutely perfect live sound. The band plays a dark, noisy variety of trance music, taking inspiration from such disparate acts as Suicide, Death in Vegas, and even Joy Division. Check out their latest album, Zeros – heavy stuff.

“With the remix-album we were able to show not only club-oriented sounds, but also spherical innovations with a fusion of great international artist support.”

Melodic and groovy – that’s the distinguished sound of the two Thuringians from Germany as in 2008 they decided to have a share in the electronic music scene. Their sound features warmth, pressure and especially harmony, on what they emphasize in particular. Their attention to detail is obvious. Recently, they were titled “ministers of melody”.

Markus Schulz presents a Ministry of Sound 6 hour solo set

Markus Schulz presents a Ministry of Sound 6 hour solo setWhilst many in principle are able to execute a Ministry of Sound solo set, only our beloved international resident has the pedigree to rock it all night. For an unprecedented fourth occasion, this is the one Gallery event which attracts trance and progressive aficionados from all four corners of the globe. An unrivalled familiarity with The Gallery controls, meaning Markus is able to elevate his ‘unicorn slaying’ synths to a level afforded by no other venue. From the very first beat in the Box, expect the rowdy atmosphere on which The Gallery is famed – sustained over six hours of intense Markus magic. Are you ready?

If not, then this latest mix from Markus is perfect to mentally prepare. A retrospective look at the best of ‘Global DJ Broadcast’ over the past few months, it’s a good bet that most of these belters will be played on Friday.

A fan video from Schulz’s previous visit in December. Although six months on, the memory is still vivid for those lucky enough to attend. The track being his very own ‘Love Rain Down,’ it’s a very good omen for Friday’s six hour set
