Mojado - Arena
Mojado is the exciting new neo-techno project from the combined talents of Mr Sam and Dimitri Andreas, both experienced DJ's and producers. Dimitri Andreas has already unleashed works on N.E.W.S.'s techno-label Musicman, as a DJ he has performed at high profile events throughout Europe such as 'I Love Techno' and 'Made In Brussels'. Already an established artist in his own right, Mr Sam is very wellknown for his superb and highly acclaimed remixes. As his staggering output gradually approaches a decade, his fingerprints have been left upon the reworks he has created for such renowned artists as Sinead O’Connor, Delerium, Blank & Jones, Corvin Dalek, Praga Khan, Timo Maas and Todd Terry to mention a few.
After signing their new debut single 'Naranja' to Tiësto's label Magik Muzik, a highly impressed Tiesto called it 'the perfect combination of the techno-mind of Dimitri Andreas and the trance attitude of Mr Sam'. This debut single has already received massive broadband support from Tiësto, Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules, Redhead, Ben Sims and Blank & Jones, and is featured on the first Tiësto In Concert DVD. Their second single, 'El Toro', again got worldwide support and ended up on many, many compilations. A third single, 'Señorita, has just been released, and is currently creating mayhem on dancefloors anywhere.
Now these guys have teamed up to merge their influences and inspirations into a hot fusion of styles, to create club music with an attitude. Their debut album, 'Arena' is hard to categorize, as it a unique blend of the various sounds of today. It is perhaps, the perfect Pan-European collaboration, a Dutch record label releasing the works from a Belgian/French duo, inspired by the Spanish culture.
Feeling a desperate need to discard the restrictive boundaries which have come to strangle the development of contemporary techno-trance, their style could be best described as a cocktail of sound.'Arena' is a collection of many influences, or as Mr Sam himself explains; 'We can build up a track around salsa music, hard techno or simply a tribal groove...or whatever really, we are not limited to a particular style.' And If you dance, Mr Sam and Dimitri Andreas will certainly make you wet, like their name Mojado suggests. Soak in their sound and discover how they have fine-tuned their influences from years of writing and playing music, to make this an album with an edge as well.Besides, each track on this album has been carefully crafted with the dancefloor in mind. So if it is interesting and imaginative club music you seek, then you will get the overwhelming feeling of excitement and satisfaction from this album. Undoubtably, it will get you wishing for the weekend.
