Bloody Mary grew up in the region of Aix en Provence in France. Always on the look out for new sounds and fresh music, the sets of this French-born Berlin-based Dj are fine example of what is happening at the moment. In 2005, her move to Berlin has taken her career to an international level. She regularly plays at big European clubs like Watergate, Harry Klein, The End, and Rex Club. In 2006, she released her debut 12" on Sender Records (her favorite label), which knocked our socks off at Bunker headquarters. We immediately thought it'd be nice to have her play the Bunker at some point, but somehow doubted she'd be in North America anytime soon. As luck would have it, she's stopping by NYC to visit friends, and we were able to grab her for her North American debut.
Grant Aaron aka Insideout is co-owner and producer for Brooklyn's Clink Recordings. Grant began DJing in 1997, mainly influenced by the striped down minimal sounds of Daniel Bell, Plastikman and Mike Ink. It didn't take long for those influences to persuade him to move from behind the decks to the studio. His first original sounds came in the form of less 4/4-based music and more Ambient and Experimental. Together with several producers from his hometown of Atlanta, he co-created Lifeform Project, a netlabel and production entity whose releases and multimedia events gained international attention.
In 2005 Grant relocated to Brooklyn, NY and teamed up with close friend and producer Camea. Later that year Clink Recordings was born and has since released 8 very successful solo and collaborative EP's from NY artists Afternoon Coffee Boys (Tim Xavier & Tony Rohr), Tony Rohr, Camea, Insideout, Ambivalent, Elon and Heartthrob. Grant's production combines the influences of modern minimal techno: intricate rhythmic percussive programming and dark atmospherics. His live and DJ performances host an array of these influences, making deep connections with the audience and keeping the floor moving from start to finish. In 2006 Grant played Detroit's Electronic Music Festival (DEMF), NY's BAPLAB, and Seattle's Decibel Festival, performing live with Camea.
