[MINUS] 2014 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

It's been a great year for us, but nothing would be possible without the artists that push our sound forward.

For the 2nd year in a row, the Kappa FuturFestival in Torino was one of the highlights of the summer. An incredible crowd, a blistering set and a brand new experimental light show!! Thanks for all the energy from all my Italian fans!

Time really does fly by when you have so many projects going on AND when you're having so much fun, but finally we had the chance to go back to some of the places in Asia that I don't get to that often! One of the things that I was reminded of on this tour was that there's so many people around the world who have really dedicated their lives to being active in the world of Electronic Music. As a DJ, you kind of just pop in and out of so many places that it's hard to really understand and appreciate all the time, energy and dedication that goes into keeping all of the scenes around the world strong and continually developing. So while traveling through China, Taipei, South Korea & Japan, I thought it was a good chance to catch up with some friends and sit down and talk about the current state of Electronic Music.

After spending so much time in Northern Asia, it was great to finally come down south and play for my first time in Bangkok and make a return visit to Jakarta. Watching everyone's face light up with smiles as I started and then close their eyes with the rhythmical vibrations of techno... another reminder why I travel so far and so wide bringing my favorite music to appreciative audiences around the world. It's about education, it's about entertainment, and as Derrick May likes to say, it's about THE DANCE: http://youtu.be/sMq90UAg-Zw

Regarding the incident at Time Warp in New York this weekend which is being posted and talked about on the web, I would like to apologise here to the girl involved. It was not my intention that the speaker fell. Only to nudge the monitors in her direction and for her to understand that perhaps she had filmed enough. I was as surprised as I'm sure she was when it moved the way it did and the top speaker fell off of the stack. For that, I'm extremely sorry and embarrassed about what happened. This was never my intention. Sometimes being in the middle of the spotlight, continual cameras and glaring iPhone lights, things can get stressful and frustrating. I'm sorry that this frustration took an unexpected turn and took away from anyone's experience of Time Warp. I have tried to reach the girl to apologise personally but have not yet been able to track her down and will continue to try to contact her.

Nearly 25 years into my career and here I am at the end of yet another beautifully inspiring year. Surrounded by an incredibly supportive group of family, friends and fans, I’m able to continue living my dream being an Electronic Music Artist & “DJ”, travelling the world, learning, teaching, entertaining and inspiring new and old fans alike and helping to continue the growth & development of our wonderful culture. This year was full of crazy experiences, crazy events, unexpected surprises and some incredibly challenging new projects (some of which you’ll all hear about next year)!!! The last twelve months has been filled with so many moments that it’s hard write down here, but I’ll highlight 14 of them that still resonate in the front of my mind!

1. The Secret Technology project that we will announce to our scene in early 2015.
2. A summer of incredibly inspiring gigs like Sunwaves NEOPOP Electronic Music Festival TOFFLER Fuse Peacock Society Ambasada Gavioli Fabric London Sonus Festival Cocorico Glastonbury Festival (official) THE WAREHOUSE PROJECT Movement Electronic Music Festival (OFFICIAL).
3. Ibiza with ENTER.Season 3, back-to-backs with Dubfire & Luciano (Official Page) and my yearly visit to Cocoon Ibiza.
4.The return of Plastikman with “EX” and double header Plastikman & Hawtin shows at the Sónar Festival.
5. ENTER.International bringing #Techno across the world to MUTEK Montreal, CREAMFIELDS BA, Escape: All Hallows' Eve.
6. Caprices Festival - what could be better than a Swiss chalet, Skiing & Gigging & partying with 8 of your best friends.
7. An Inspiring and thought provoking Spring tour of Asia at ageHa (Tokyo), Club Eden (Seoul), Att Show Box 文創立方 (Taipei), M2 (Shanghai).
8. Time Warp anniversaries around the world – WIE IMMER!
9. Sven Väth (OFFICIAL) 50th birthday party!
10. Having Dixon, Tale Of Us, Recondite and Dubfire ASK to do club remixes of Plastikman “EX” songs.
11. Dixon, Guy Gerber and Dubfire’s sets (Legendary moment... Ali dropping the Carl Craig remix of Vince Watson) in the ENTER.Sake bar Ibiza.
12. Incredible MINUS singles from Maceo Plex, Julian Jeweil, Matador, @Testpilot (aka deadmau5), WHYT NOYZ, Carlo Ruetz, Marc Faenger Florian Frings and outstanding albums by Jon Gaiser & Paco Osuna OFFICIAL!
13. Receiving the Outstanding Contribution to Music AIM Independent Music Awards with my family in attendance!
14. Japan Trip uniting three of my passions at the Red Bull Music Academy & Sake Samurai ceremony... MUSIC SAKE & EDUCATION

To everyone who came, who participated, who supported & helped organize and who danced the night away, THANK YOU!!! If some of these memories, moments, people, DJ's and experiences above bring you back to that time, that energy, then keep that feeling in mind as we close out 2014 with the various different year end polls and charts!

For our scene and culture, here’s one of the most important ones, the Resident Advisor Year End Poll…

I have so many incredible musical memories in Montreal! I remember one of our first PLUS8 (official page) road trips when John Acquaviva, Daniel Bell (DBX) and I drove up to record a show for the famous Canadian radio show "Brave New Waves." On that trip, we performed at one of the early Montreal raves and met a VERY young Plus 8 fan for the first time, Tiga! Over the years I've returned time & time again to enjoy the hospitality of the city and its diverse Electronic Music scene. From early after-hour mornings at Club SONA, to incredible New Years Eve "CELEBRATIONS" shows to many inspiring (and challenging) MUTEK appearances, Monteal continues to radiate an incredible energy and respect to all things Electronic! This year we returned again to play for my friends at Mutek, bringing ENTER. and our #dotUP free event to Canada for the first time!
