Embryo W/E

Fri 8 Dec
Mhm One
Bottega Arete

MHM One aka Morten Halborg-Møller is the man behind one of the most successful underground clubs on the Copenhagen scene for the past 3-4 years: "Kill Your Telly" The versatile character of the club, in terms of sound, deco and locations, reflects in many ways Morten's efforts and background as an artist, promoter and essentially a DJ. MHM One: "I'm a DJ, but first and foremost am I a music lover. My record collection is quite diverse, from minimal techno and house over dark electro to dusty dub, and even post-rock. The essence of DJ'ing is for me to be able to feel the music I play and listen to. That´s the most important thing at all times - To really feel it!! I get booked for chilled sets just as often as club sets, where people expect the deep bass and minimal sound, and I like both.

With the Concept of Kill Your Telly, MHM One organizes events and touring clubnights on the best clubs and locations. The parties can in principle show up anywhere, just as long as the frames alows him to bring the Kill Your Telly spirit to life.

Since Kill Your Telly was launched in 2003 MHM One has presented international names such as: Miss Kittin (De), Dj Maxximus (De), Agoria (Fr), Cutlass Supreme (Uk), Pan-Tone (Can), Paul St. Hilaire & Scion (de), Erobique (De), Mad Professor (Uk), I-F (Nl), DMX Krew (Uk), Gebrüder Tanzmann (De), Llopis (Se), Ceephax Acid Crew (Uk), Expander (Po), Marcus Stork (Se), Justus Könhcke (De), Trentemøller (Dk), Rob Acid (De) + the cream of the danish scene.

Besides doing graphic work and arts, Bottega Arete creates moving visual art for cultural events, some for specific artists and some for dj's.

Sat 9 Dec
Joel Martin (Quiet Village Project)
Sean Vinylment
Tom Wilson

Oh my gawsh! Joel Martin? In Bucharest? The same Joel Martin who, with Matt Edwards (Radio Slave, Rekid), makes up Quiet Village Project, one of the most in demand producers and remixers this year? Who played for the legendary Francois K in New York four days ago, and as I write is playing in Tokyo? Christ on a bike! It’s been *hell* trying to book him, so it gives me a warm feeling between my legs to announce that he’ll actually be playing for us at EMBRYO on Saturday. Joel will be spinning everything from disco and electro to reggae and afro. It should be a lot of fun...

Check http://beatsinspace.net/ for recent mixes, or http://www.myspace.com/quietvillage2006 for some myspace action. Maybe they’ll put that photo of you trying to suck your cheeks in and look like Pete Doherty on their ‘Friends’ list....

Sean Vinylment, on the other hand, runs the night ‘Pooka’ in Manchester's trendy Odd bar, and put together the hugely popular mix CD entitled “A Country Practice”, together with World Scratch Champion DJ Woody. Even DJ Magazine, which is written by illiterate public schoolboys, gave it four out of five! Look:

"Great stuff, nice beats, quite a few I didn't know too"
Strictly Kev (DJ Food / Ninjatune)

"Really well crafted, put together and thought out mix CD combining turntablism and breaks bringing his turntable wizardry fused with a bag of rare breaks and beats, this CD really does kill everything out there rite now."
DJ Vadim

"They slice and dice it all like samurai chefs and lead you wide-eyed with wonder through an alternative universe wherein Boards of Canada-style moments of childlike delight slip beautifully into strung-out '70's funk, kooky jazz grooves and what sounds like the weirdest offcuts from the Bosworth Archive you've never heard before. Fascinating frabjous stuff throughout."
4/5 DJ Magazine

Tom Wilson, on the other hand, writes over-long emails to strangers.
Enough! See on Saturday!
