The last three years have been particularly fruitful and rewarding for Alinka, due in large part to her friendship and musical partnership with singer, producer and DJ, Shaun J. Wright. Wright, whose rich, resonant voice has lended soul to music by Hercules and Love Affair, and Stereogamous, met Alinka in 2012 and the two instantly bonded over their love of Chicago House music.

The release was followed by a 12” remix compilation with remixes from Derrick Carter, Neville Watson and Chris E. Pants. The EP’s lead single, “Love Inspired,” was featured on Defected Records Compilation “Defected Presents The Closing Party Ibiza 2013,” as well as Defected’s In The House Radio show. In addition, Alinka and Wright have collaborated on a plethora of remixes for Hi Fashion, The Carry Nation, JD Samson & MEN, and Baby Alpaca. The pair also recently completed “Twirl Vol. 2” for Classic Music Company which will be out early 2015.

Their first release titled “Journey Into The Deep” featured remixes by Kim Ann Foxman, and Stereogamous, and received support from a wide variety of artists including Groove Armada, Danny Tenaglia, Kenny Glasgow, Annie Mac, Robert Owens, Matt Toldfrey, and many more. The EP got DJ Mag’s approval with a 9.0 rating, and was also featured on Annie Mac and Heidi’s shows on BBC Radio 1 dance radio.

Their second release Wait For Love featured remixes from Eli Escobar and Newbody. The release was featured on Sinden and Tough Love’s shows on Kiss FM UK, as well as Anja Schneider’s Dance Under The Blue Moon Radio.

Her remix of Anotha Love was featured in Roger Sanchez’s Release Yourself Podcast #211 and #213, and was chosen into the Beatport Staff Picks as well as Top Exclusives of Week 22.

JELLY FOR THE BABIES (Serbia)
JELLY FOR THE BABIES

Marijan Raskovic is better known as «Jelly For The Babies’ and has had a fetish with synthesizers, guitars and drums for as long as he can remember. There was no transition into dance music as his parents were always listening to electronica so it was perfectly natural to continue in the tradition and attended prestigious music schools in Belgrade where he learned a variation of instruments including the piano.

Once he earned the much needed skills it didn’t take him long before he started producing hits. His early releases were collaborations with great international artists and signed to labels such as Crystal Sound Records, Frisky Records and Stained Music. Fans were quickly attracted to his unique take on dance music which fused further relationships with other record labels including the Balkan Connection, Portuguese Exklusive Records, VIDISCO, Kontor Records, Procon Records, Grapevine Grooves, Dbeatzion and the list goes on and on

The Jelly For Babies vibe is centred heavily around deep melodic sounds with plenty of vocals which he calls a ”Candy flavour club sound” and who can argue with him as he gained the respect of Mark Knight, Groove Armada, Roger Sanchez and Stefano Noferini, whom have dropped his tracks in their sets all around the world circuit.

His accomplishments to date are the tracks “Close Your Eyes (with Ulysses Nunes) (Vlada Asanin Remix)”, which was placed on position no.28 on Beatport TechHouse Top100, While the track “Yeah Yeah” positioned itself at no.64 And “Be What U Wanna Be” went straight in at no.52 on Traxsource House Top100

Jelly has also been in the TOP10 Must Hear Progressive House charts on Beatport, with the highly regarded tracks “Too Deep Or Not Too Deep” and “Johannesburg” signed to The Balkan Connection.

With this strength and quality of material its no wonder Jelly has gained such a massive following amongst discerning clubbers, Dj’s and other producers. With future Planet Acetate releases already stacking up Jellies career looks incredibly bright.

S. JAY (UK)
S JAY

S. Jay comes at you with a fresh groovy flavour of House music heavily inspired by his upbringing… From his parents’ love of Northern Soul, RnB and Motown which meant that he was never too far away from the all-time classics, to the excellent variety in the nightlife of the City of Leeds. He began collecting music from across the board in his teenage years gradually leading to him flirting with creating his own sounds. His talent soon shone through in early productions and bootlegs with their dirty bass and sexy grooves…under the alias Sweet Beat.

Fast forward to 2013; armed with a complete understanding of the flexibilities in the House music genre due to countless hours and late night sessions in the studio….the alias S. Jay was born. The year ended with S. Jay beating off more than 600 applicants to win 1st prize in the Groove Armada & Brodanse Beatport remix competition. Also recently starting his own label – Domino Effects Records with studio partner Nick Ostertag, S. Jay will be causing havoc in a club near you in 2014.
