Read about it, we go a little more sideways in this new interview series “State of things”..we talk to women in all facets of the music business to shed light and give their honest opinions of what really goes on..Our first interview with Esther Duijn is up..upcoming interviews with Malena Perez, and Mieka Du Frank..
PREORDER DENIS CLIFFORD FULL LENGTH CD ALBUM
Artist: Denis Clifford
Title: Miracles of Matter
Catalog #: BU-M 023
Label: Bumako Recordings
Format: Full length cd album/digital
Release date: June 2013
Patience does pay off for those willing to let things happen naturally, such is the case with Denis Clifford who submitted his first release “Easter Island” to Bumako more than a year ago through soundcloud. Label boss Jenifa Mayanja knew she had something special in Irish producer Denis Clifford who though an accomplished musician had only recently started to delve into house music production.
The resulting connection brings about a full length album from Denis entitled “Miracles of Matter” which wedges nicely between melodic techno and groove steady deep house..This first effort really showcases the potential of this up and coming producer as he mixes it up from catchy hooks on “Take it or leave it”, the ethnic house vibes on “Clockwork” and the euphoric techno tone of “King of dreams” the final track. There is enough to catch the attention of fans of his highly seductive take on the techno genre while also rocking the floors of groove hungry house fans..
Denis Clifford is one of a select few artists who will be featured on Bumako Recordings that will produce albums for the label showcasing more full length material from many corners of the house music world.
Following Denis Clifford’s cd and digital release will be a special limited edition 12” featuring remix versions of select tracks from the full length release.

The State of Things
What is the current state of things? what things you ask? Things related to women who are professional producers, artists, Djs, event organizers, engineers, label owners and many more roles..Has being in this male-dominated industry gotten more acceptable for women in 2013?, the road to success and acceptance smoother? The standards of political correctness equalized from when women first appeared on the electronic music scene to now?
That is the why we are talking about the “state of things” to discover different viewpoints from past to present, to share experiences with the world and use them to provide insight for everyone professionally involved and or fans of the music.This is also a way to bring about some measure of equality to women professionally involved in all areas of electronic music from clubbing to production. If nothing else you might find out your assumptions are dead wrong and in doing so think twice about your comments or thoughts about your perceptions of women doing their thing in the biz. By the same token,you might also find what you thought you knew well was spot on.
Just so you know, i am not a typical interviewer, see i live this, have lived this from the beginnings of the 90’s the golden era of house to now. I have been a dj from 1992, worked in the best record store in the world, worked at one of the premier record labels in the world, performed as an live artist, organized two beloved parties in New York, written, produced, sang, own a label..actually co-own two more..i say all this to say i have earned my chops in the biz and i think its time we brought the state of things to a higher level.
My first guest is Esther Dujin..be forewarned i will be asking some controversial questions not to creat controversy but to bring clearer picture beyond just veiled agendas, however sometimes you gotta shake out the dust in order to keep the room clean and i am not one to claim political correctness. However i believe i have a cause! A cause for celebration at the incredible amount of diverse talent to be found among women professionally involved in the electronic music busines but a cause to speed along the process of equality for women because sometimes it just sucks to not a thing dangling between your legs in this business..
Well here we go stay tuned.
