Force of Nature

谈起 Force of Nature 的名字来源,KZA和KENT都有各自的说法,但都与hip-hop脱不了太大的关系。(两人都曾参与一个名为YOTUKAIDO NATURE 的hip-hop组合) YOTUKAIDO NATURE之后,他们做了一些器乐的break beat,并给专辑取名为“urban combatt 2001”,这时候他们给这个二人计划取名为FON。

 

对于KZA来说,Force of nature名字的来源可能与年轻的时候是说唱组合Naughty by Nature的狂热粉丝有关,而对于KENT来说,Nature这个词代表着对自然的热爱:“在我看来Nature这个词拥有这个世界上最巨大的能量!”

 

Force of nature 由KZA和DJ KENT二人组成,两个长久往来的好朋友难得的拥有一致的音乐品味与眼界。

 

而对于日本的俱乐部场景,在此发展多年的两人都认为东京占了这个场景的绝大多数,而就这里来说hip-hop发展的非常好,b-boy和 b-girl随处可见。因而我们并不难发现Force of Nature从千禧年初的发行至现在,除了明显的Disco和house元素,Break beat,还包容了很多hip-hop,甚至是Downtempo。

 

 

 

Carlos(Rainbow Disco Club)

Carlos于2001年在旧金山创建了Deep House音乐计划(DHP),同时他也在这座音乐之城确立了自己作为一位DJ新星的身份。当时的旧金山地下音乐场景正处于鼎盛时期,Carlos更是以他独特场地的音乐活动提高了整体水准,这让人们想参与更多。同时,他也在DHP厂牌下制作了一些唱片。

 

DHP厂牌标志性的充满 ghetto funk风格的deep tech律动已经蔓延到世界各地的舞池,并看到Gibbs 与其他例如Land Shark, Mark Farina, Miguel Miggs, Solar, Rennie Foster, Mikael Stavostrand, Mike Shannon, Alex Smoke等艺术家一起演出,以及最值得纪念的 Roy Ayers。

 

2004年移居东京后,Gibbs 继承了2002年创立的其姐妹项目Redbox,并将其牢固地确立为东京最重要的地下活动之一。

 

Gibbs在2009年从Redbox项目中抽身休息了一段时间,在此之后他与Raft Tokyo团队合作创建了Rainbow Disco Club。在担任创意总监期间,他继续通过活动中的视觉装置效果展示自己的设计创意,并且在2012年从主题“超越时空”中获得灵感。这个户外艺术节邀请了高水准的音乐人,如DJ Harvey、Metro Area和Radio Slave, Gibbs更是和Radio Slave一起表演。他目前的音乐重点是Funk, Disco, Deep Techno 和现场乐队。

 

 

 

Tobias Patrick

Tobias Patrick 15余年DJ经历,出生和成长在德国的他,少年时期第一次开始接触电子舞曲,他便迅速的确立了他对techno的选择:在他完成第一次在鲁尔区附近的CLUB演出,便开始了对其他音乐种类如funk、soul、disco、house和其他soulful种类。他的音乐风格受到来自世界各地不同流派艺术家的影响。他的音乐形态不能单单用一种风格来定义——有灵魂,注重音乐情绪,变幻无穷大概是最好的形容。

 

作为黑胶唱片收藏者,他与DJ Lindberg共同创办上海的12 INCHES OF FUN—“黑胶停不下来”系列派对。派对的宗旨是坚持黑胶现场以带来手工艺人般的精致音乐体验。12年多亚洲组织音乐活动的经验,体现了派对的专业性和兼收并蓄的音乐品味。

 

 

 

Donn

来自新加坡的DONN可以说是当地音乐圈的风云人物。多元化的曲风让他无论是置身地 下或商业派对,都能给派对动物们投下一枚重磅音乐炸弹。DONN绝对是一名全能型DJ, 从 Disco, Deep House到 & Techno, 都不能逃过他敏锐的双耳。

 

在Donn的风格里, 他时常打破常规的音乐界限,添加一些令人意想不到的元素, 大家总期待在他的DJ sets中遇到一种全新的流派。因为凭借着充满能量的技术,他能极具效率的把过去和未来用美妙的旋律 对应起来。

 

早期的DONN,致力于推广和发展Hip Hop 音乐,并为新加坡和马来西亚的Hip Hop艺术建立起了一座无形的友谊之桥,推动了两国Hip Hop的发展。

Force of Nature

Force of Nature are KZA and DJ Kent, two long time friends that share the same musical tastes and vision. KZA is a huge vinyl junkie who has acquired an enormous record collection over the years, enabling him to have a wide variety music at his fingertips. DJ Kent, the other side, has been dj'ing in Japan for many years now and has developed his own unique sound and musical style that makes him one of the most stimuluating and respected DJ's in the Japanese dance music scene.

 

 

Carlos(Rainbow Disco Club)

The beginning…Step One: DHP

Carlos created Deep House Project (DHP) in 2001, while living in San Francisco, CA. He also established himself as an upcoming DJ in a city where music is everything.  The SF underground scene was at its height and Carlos raised that bar with his underground events in unique venues, that left people wanting more. He also produced several records under the DHP label

 

DHP's branded stripe of deep tech grooves imbued with ghetto funk flavour has  spread to dance floors worldwide and has seen Gibbs play alongside such artists as Land Shark, , Mark Farina, Miguel Miggs,  Iz&Diz, T-Rek to the more recent DJ Julz, Jimpster, Justice, Hipp-E, Solar, Rennie Foster, Mikael Stavostrand, Mike Shannon , Alex Smoke and the most memorable Roy Ayers.  From SF to  New York City,  Sydney, Melbourne(Revolver), Prague, Bangkok, Beijing and Seoul till finally finding its present home in the heart of dance music hysteria in Asia , Tokyo, where Gibbs has frisked the floors of Eleven (formerly Yellow), Unit, Ageha and Womb.

 

The middle…Step Two:  RedBox Project

Upon moving to Tokyo in 2004, Gibbs took the development of the sister brainchild, RedBox, created in 2002 and firmly established itself as one of the premier underground events in the Tokyo landscape.   The RedBox concept had its foundations in photography and extends its reach to innovative portraiture, perceptive composition, live painting and original visuals, a formidable assault when mixed with sound. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the end of the RedBox Project.

 

The present…Step Three: RDC and Skinni Pants

 

Gibbs took a break from RedBox Project in 2009 and has since teamed up with Raft Tokyo to create Rainbow Disco Club. In his role as Creative Director, he has continued to show his design creativity thru the visual décor of this event, taking his cue from the theme “Beyond space and time” in 2012. This outdoor festival has featured high profile artists such as DJ Harvey, Metro Area, and Radio Slave which Gibbs has played alongside. His present musical focus is Funk, Disco, Deep Techno and live bands.

 

Also in 2009, Gibbs launched Skinni Pants focusing on Art, Fashion and music.  In 2010 he made the move to Shanghai, China to open a design studio focusing on designing interiors, event decor and studying the process of making Art on walls come alive. He takes on each day with a new outlook on life and how to apply this to his creative process.

 

“I play records sometimes at night!”Carlos Gibbs

 

 

 

Tobias Patrick

Record collector, DJ, and (alongside DJ Lindberg) curator of the Fun 12 Inches parties in Shanghai, Tobias Patrick has spent the last 25 years immersing himself in club music, and has picked up one or two tricks along the way. He has been DJing and organizing parties in China and Asia since 2010.While raised on Germany’s techno and house sound of the 90’s, his musical influences are too broad to define his style with one word. Soulful, raw, and ever-changing would be a goodway to describe it.

 

 

Donn
Over  the last decade, as a DJ or Music Promoter, DONN's foundation has been instrumental across ASIA, breaking boundaries with strong musical influences across international clubs, music festivals & private DJ bookings.  Often pushing envelopes of sound in between the realms of – disco, house & techno – an approach that defines the past present & future, where  dance floors are spaces for genres to collide, expanding new rhythmic tensions, blending tracks from space & time.
