BlueHourSounds Rec / Swiss
(New album launch)
Master Margherita aka Moreno Antognini, is a musician based in Switzerland. Since 1988, he has been very active in the european music scene where his first steps were as a bass player in various Rock'n'Roll bands. But in 1994 he started composing tracks which mixed and matched live instruments with all sorts of electronic " devices " . This experimentation saw a change of musical direction for him into the world of " ambient " soundscapes. Since then his talent has been appreciated in many styles, from french text songs, to experimental techno, via ethnic grooves and reggae.
In 2003, with trance dj - Gaspard, musician - Ajja S.F.Leu and artist - Tanina Munchkina, he took part in the creation of PEAK records (the first Swiss psychedelic trance label). Peak records is now one of the top underground labels, with over 10 releases (compilations, artist albums - all psychedelic trance or chill out / ethno ambient).
Master Margherita has collaborated in all sorts of artistic creations where music is involved, including music for theatres, documentaries, fiction movies, labels, and many multimedia performances. - See more at: http://www.ultimae.com/en/guests/master-margherita/index.html#sthash.B772TIux.dpuf

◈ JAZZMINE DJSET
BlueHourSounds Rec / Italy
Born in South Germany in 1981 from a turkish father and german mother. Inspired by her turkish family of musicians and actors and their hot-blooded passion for expressive arts, Jazzmine discovered her love for music at an early age, encouraged by the warm support of her parents.
Singing and dancing through her childhood and teenager years, she arrived at being the front singer of a popular 'rhythm and blues / funk' band at the age of 16.
In the meantime she finished art school, where she learned to express herself through various media - pixel, pen and colour.
Her love for psytrance started with a visit in Munichís ëNatraj Temple' in 1999, and after some years of various activities around the scene (Chaishop, Deco, Clothing), she started mixing Psychedelic Trance, having her first official appearance as a dj in 2003.
Playing gigs all over Europe, one day (March 2008), she was invited to Bologna, where she met Luca - and a new era of her life was born.
They founded 'Blue Hour Soundsí in 2009, and have kept going ever since.
Jazzmine, as well as being the co-owner and DJ for BHS, created the image of the project - from logo to website, including a solid amount of CD/EP covers for releases on BHS.
Her style - in both graphics and music - can be described as ëorganic psychedelic, serious, but self-ironicí.
Jazzmine has played all over Europe, including Boom Festival (Portugal), Tundra Festival (Lithuania), Antaris (Ger), Waldfrieden (Germany), Blackmoon festival (IT), Freqs of Nature (Ger), Cosmo Festival (UK), Metsa Festival (Finland), Forest Star Festival (Sweden) and countless other beautiful festivals and indoor parties.
