Markus Schulz started the Schulz Music Group as a way to help artists develop.  With the label system, there is no loyalty and tracks come out everywhere.  He said that he wants to “help them achieve their dreams in ways that you can’t really do with a label.”  At WMC,  I spoke with Grube & Hovsepian, Mr. Pit, and KhoMha to learn more about them and their music. The Coldharbour team is definitely in demand with major gigs lined up around the world.

DJ Ron Slomowicz: With Grube & Hovsepian, one of you was based in LA and the other in Florida, do you guys live together in the same city now?
Tim Grube: Yes, as of July of last year we are now Miami-based.
Mike Hovsepian: I moved out to Miami last July and loved it.

INTERVIEW: The M Machine (2013)

San Francisco-based EDM group The M Machine gained major attention when Skrillex released their debut EP “Promise Me a Rose Garden”/”Glow” on his OWSLA label.  The trio of Andy Coenen, Eric Luttrell, and Ben Swardlick were inspired by the classic movie Metropolis for their follow up EPs and their name.  Their remixes of Arty, Passion Pit, and Madeon gained a lot of attention as well.  The artistic trio are really involved with the full aesthetic experience of their music – focusing on creating a live audio and visual show as they tour.  We caught up with them in Nashville when they were touring with Markus Schulz on the Scream Bus Tour.

DJ Ron Slomowicz: How is the bus tour going?
Ben: We are in a new city every day, it’s great and we are very happy. Markus is awesome and his crowds are really intense which is great for us. Andy just programmed a big video show and we get to use his giant LED screen, so the timing is perfect.
