KOTEGASHI

BIO

Music has been a big part of my life. In my early teens (mid 80's) I was introduced to electronic music in the form of Jean-Michel Jarre and was instantly hooked. Being a bit big for my age I was lucky enough to go clubbing when I was about 15 years old (officially had to been 18 or older to get in), it was my introduction to house music. I grew up in the days of mellow house music and visited clubs and parties where the Ducth DJ heroes played (Marcello, Remy Unger, Dimitri Kneppers, Michel de Hey and so on). At that time the dream of DJing and producing myself began. Visiting a major specialist record store in The Hague almost every week scoring the latest 12" (it was the time before internet, mp3  and such) and owning my mix set I practiced and practiced. Unfortunately after some personal setbacks and misfortune I had to put my dreams on hold mid 90's but never lost the love of music and house music in particular. 

Around 2010 I picked up dreams and started DJing again, not much and all at home. But grew a nice fanbase at Mixcrate.com. Started producing tracks around 2015 and found the courage (after a lot of encouragement of family and friends) in 2019 to look for a label to release my music. FGA gave me that chance and I am glad to have found my musical home and family in FGA! 
My musical motto: Music is more than just a combination of notes, it is life. It cherrishes, nourishes, comforts and excites. Emerge yourself in music and feel alive!

Dexy

BIO

During his youth growing up in Toronto’s Jane and Finch neighbourhood, Dexy used music to focus his energy and grow as an artist and person. Over the years he has been part of the underground electronic music scene in many roles - event promoter, MC, DJ … but is now locked in the studio to push his sound further through original creations. This determination can be seen in his growing list of releases on domestic and international labels, including Toronto’s FGA Recordings label, and Germany’s Neologism, and more to come! As a true artist, Dexy is constantly working and expanding the limits of his music and has evolved his sets to include live remixing and track building with the Pioneer RMX-1000 to create a truly customized musical journey for each dance floor experience. 

This is evident right from Dexy’s first release, Bump Like This, on Toronto’s Full Grind Audio Label, which featured a blend of bouncy, grooving beats and fun “bumpy” vocal. With each subsequent offering, Dexy has continued to expand his versatility as a producer, including his chart-climbing House Music Background EP on Germany’s Neologism. While he has continued to deliver the dance floor-pleasing goods, he has also offered deeper layers of musicality and melody, as can be heard on the title track on latest RollerSkater EP for Full Grind Audio with it’s filtered strings and happy chords. Listening to this track feels like a time warp back to the 70s to go skating at the roller disco with your crew, then hit the pizzeria to hang out (shaggy hairstyle and bell bottom jeans not required.)
