BLOOM is an electronic duet which proposes a set half way between house music and funk
It's a meeting of the electronic Producer DJ MUSH, Olivier MUTSCHLER, with Daniel BROTHIER.
DJ MUSH is also a composer for contemporary dance, a radio DJ and an electronic music teacher.
Well known as a remixer, he is the first French DJ to have remixed the famous Detroit artist Juan ATKINS. He's the art director for his new label SHARIVARI RECORDS ; listen to AGNES and Art BLEEK releases.
BLOOM proposes a mix which grows in intensity through the night. Depending on the venue, their music revolves around minimal electronic music influenced by Detroit House and Techno music, or Funk and Soul stuff.
The duet music style leads the dancers to the floor, and everybody gets up and dances with BLOOM.
In November the 19 th, BLOOM played in the House Platine Party for the OPENING NIGHT of the SAINT ETIENNE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN BIENNAL EVENT.
The BLOOM sets combine today's house music with moments of improvisation.
Saxophone sounds, numerous digital effects, and analogic synthetiseurs are controlled and triggered on stage.
Improvisation moments move from repetitive to funk music. Phrases, grooves and solos are constructed live to build up songs and mix.
DJ MUSH creates loops with timecoded disks on turntables and computer software so he can re-edit live songs and breaks.
Solos, saxophone loops, effects and analogic synthetiseurs sounds are stacked on existing recorded music.
In addition, MUSH mixes with vinyl decks, so rythms and grooves are created and colored both with saxophone, records and machines, under the influence of funk and techno music.
On stage, the set is played in a remix vein. The duet's protagonists improvise, playing with a modern mood idea on sounds. During the mix, samples and machines work together.
As usual in electronic music, upward energies follow one after another, and give birth to new grooves, which grow all night long .
Since 2006, the duet has played regularly in the Rhône Alpes area, and throughout France. In November the 19 th, BLOOM played for the OPENING NIGHT of the SAINT ETIENNE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN BIENNAL EVENT.
Since 2007 BLOOM appears twice a year in Berlin, in different types of venues, like the TAPE Klub, the mythical squat the Tacheles, the European Creative Center, and more regularly in the Klub der Republik.
Some MUSH and the REMINDER remixes, are played by famous DJ's like Chez DAMIER, Kai ALCE and Steve BUG, all around the world, and in Berlin in big Clubs like the Panoramabar.
