London based Cisco Ferreira, or The Advent, can be described in many ways: a musician, a pioneer, a sound designer, a steady force, one persistent m*therf*cker, a rebel, an icon, an outsider, a great live artist…
Mostly though, The Advent is known for his interpretation of what we call Techno. Ever since young Portuguese Cisco discovered Acid House in the London clubs he frequented, his journey has been about making his mark on the electronic music scene. Or, as he recently put it himself: Ive been doing this for quite a few years and Im not going anywhere. This sums it up pretty well; you wont see Ferreira naked, shooting promo videos carrying a dog, or hear him publically worrying about the sincerity of the average EDM jockey. Hes everything about techno youve learned to love, without the circus youve learned to accept.
Fresh out of college, Ciscos hunger for sound landed him a job as assistant sound-engineer in several recording studios. There he learned about the art of translating feelings to frequencies, while at the same time recording various high profile artists from the world of Rock, Pop, Dance, and Reggae. When acid label Jack Trax moved in next-door, Cisco started recording for the likes of Adonis, Fingers Inc, Marshall Jefferson, and Derrick May. These rendezvous sparked the inspiration for his first EPs on R&S and Fragile.
In 1994 Ferreira signed a record deal for 12 EPs and 3 albums together with Colin McBean. This was the beginning of an era during which the duo set a worldwide standard for high quality underground Electro and Techno. They hit the world with a refreshing sound, both as The Advent, and G Flame (Cisco) and Mr G, the alias Colin is still using. Nowadays The Advent is a solo project, bombarding crowds around the world with its trademark raw, energetic sound. A sound that grants him yearly slots at festivals as Nature One, Awakenings and Bonusz, as well as regular shows in clubs as Berghain and Tresor in Berlin, Lehmann in Stuttgart, and Madrids Fabrik.
He hasnt given up cooperating with likeminded artists though! In 2007 he met Ricardo Rodrigues aka Industrialyzer, in whom he recognised an attitude similar to his own. They are both from Portugal, both self-made, and the both have a clear vision of what techno should sound like. As a duo theyre at least as popular as they are as individual artists, playing sold out shows wherever they go, and steadily creating an impressive combined oeuvre.
Marco Bailey is somewhat considered an icon when it comes to techno and the dance music industry as a whole. It starts with a beat, and for Marco that as in the late 80s. In 2014 he celebrated 25 years of Marco Bailey, a true achievement for someone who is an ambassador for the scene as well as an amazing DJ and producer.
He grew up in Belgium, and it all started out when he went to a small local club in his nearby city. At this point, he knew little and didnt have any musical heroes, but soon released that he would rather be behind the decks than on the dance floor.
After teaching himself his early days in the 90s were all about hard work and dedication.
Playing gigs for small fees or sometimes even for free, this was how Marco learnt the trade and got to his feet, created a small local following playing everything from rock, funk and hip-hop. In 1994 he found house and techno, where he started releasing on some small labels, under Marco Bailey.
His break came in 2000 with his first EP on Carl Coxs Intec imprint with Play It Back. Over the next couple of years he worked on his own imprint, launching MB Elektronics, with the first release in 2002 with Caprioska. The releases came flowing over the next few years, which saw the release of his critically acclaimed Rube Boy album back in 2004, soon followed by Dragon Man LP on John Digweeds Bedrock in 2011.
Since 2000, he has had numerous releases on Intec as well as Bedrock who have supported
his techno productions from the beginning. Not forgetting labels including Sleaze and Drum- code in recent years, as well as his very own MB Elektronics, with now over 150 releases to date since its inception, the label is considered one of the top techno imprints in the industry, with releases from the likes of Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, The Advent, Nic Fanciulli and Speedy J to name a few.
His most recent album was with 12 track High Volume released back in 2013 on MB Elektronics, dubbed by some techno aficionados as a masterpiece. It was at this time, he also released an up close and personal documentary Marco Bailey.
His Electronic Force podcast has been a huge success from the get-go, with almost 300 episodes to date, he has had every artist on board from Carl Cox, Alan Fitzpatrick, Umek, Joseph Capriati, Sam Paganini and Carlo Lio. Its heard by millions of listeners in more than 50 countries.
Marco has been touring relentlessly throughout his career, hes an artist who can say he has probably played at almost every club in the world, and been listed at the top of major festivals. He hasnt stopped, and the summer of 2016 was no exception, his MATERIA brand taking a new home at Vista Club, Ibiza. Every Sunday, he offered artists including Sam Paganini, Carlo Lio, Julian Jewell, and Paul Ritch for the closing on the 28th August all came out to party with Marco and the crowd.
MBR Limited is his latest label project currently with 13 releases from a selection of artists. There will also be 20 limited edition series on the label from Marco himself, showing the deeper, darker and purer sound of techno he has been producing of late. 2016 continued to be another landmark year for Marco, with his first MATERIA residency considered a huge success, the brand looks to move worldwide, and the labels are only continuing to grow. He is a true pioneer of Techno, and has no plans to put on the brakes anytime soon.
