Three has been tirelessly holding the flag for underground electronic music in the US, since his rise out of the sunny state of Florida in the early 90’s. In that time, he’s emerged as one of the brightest DJ talents in the United States and continues to be a true inspiration for many of us. DJ THREE’s tour dates show both diversity in audience and a genre-bending passion for good music; he’s held residencies at NYC’s, “Twilo”, “Cielo” (Robots), “Love” and “BLK Market Membership”, as well as Florida’s legendary “Simons Club” and the 10 years running “Snatch” night in Tampa, while playing lauded guest spots at San Francisco’s “Wicked” party, “Fabric” (UK), “Panorama Bar” (Berlin), “Club Eleven” (Tokyo), and forward thinking events like Japan’s “Labyrinth Festival” and Australia’s “Rainbow Serpent” Festival.
Three started the “Hallucination Limited” label in 2003, as an off-shoot of the seminal US 90’s label, “Hallucination Recordings” which was founded by dance music legends “Rabbit In The Moon”. “Hallucination Recordings” was responsible for some of the freshest techno (licensing the Hazed – Bells EP to Richie Hawtin’s “Plus 8” label in ’94), proper electro (Miami bass legends Dynamix 2 and Jackal & Hyde) and benchmark releases like “Second Hand Satellites” – “Multiple Mirrors” EP (produced by Three and Sean Q6).
Armed with a sound that borrows equally from vintage acid-house, techno and underground electronica, “Hallucination Limited” is held in the highest regard, getting attention from a wider audience than most labels reach. One of the ethos of Hallucination has always been to release music, that years later is still relevant and timeless on the dance floor. A perfect example of this is Cassy’s “Circo Loco” Mix CD “Inspired By The Sound Of The Circo Loco Terrace” for the July 2011 issue of MIXMAG, which contains no less than five tracks from the labels catalog! Three’s eclectic taste as a DJ and producer shine through just as brightly in his choices for the label.
Following the path of his appeal as a DJ, his rare forays into producing have become staples for DJs of all styles. Three’s remix of Mish Mash feat. Lois – ‘Speechless’ (Lost in Translation mix) for heavyweight UK label “Crosstown Rebels” received praise across the board including “pick of the month” in the 15 year anniversary issue of DJ Magazine, while other productions, such as the underground staple that is” Second-Hand Satellites” and remixes as “Three A.M.” (with David Christophere, of “Rabbit In The Moon”) of “U.N.K.L.E.” feat. Ian Brown – “Reign”, continue to be played on dance-floors around the world, from DJs as diverse as Harvey, Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler and Lee Burridge.
Coming from the school of American DJs like Josh Wink and Doc Martin, DJ THREE has a wide ranging musical palate, akin to Andrew Weatherall or Laurent Garnier, and was recently featured as part of DJ Times Magazines “DJX20 Anniversary” profile series, as one of twenty DJs who embody the spirit of the American underground along such contemporaries as Josh Wink and Claude Von Stroke.
Aside from his natural ability on the decks, Three sets himself apart from the rest of the pack by presenting eclectic sounds with an open-minded attitude towards everything he does. From DJ sets to musical output, Three is a “DJ’s DJ”, who has always leaned toward the cutting edge without losing touch with the roots of house and techno.
Raised on jazz and disco in beautiful Montreal, Quebec. She’s been a key player in the Montreal scene since the late 90’s, shaking up minds and dance-floors with her unique and creative approach to electronic music. Exploring many levels of House and Techno, her signature style is deep with a constant groove and a funky touch that gets everyone up on the dance floor. On December 2015, she boxed her most precious things and left Montreal to see what Latin America has to share. Based in Playa del Carmen, Mexico for one year, Maus launched her Montreal born monthly, Danse Contact at renown club “La Santanera”.
Maus did her first European tour in 2000 to promote her debut mixed CD, “Intersections” (Haute-Couture Records, Canada). Critically-acclaimed by international music press such as XLR8R, Coda and URB Magazine, (who included Maus on their “Next 100” lists). On this first tour, she was booked for a regular gig at Girona’s “Sala Del Cel” where she started digging deeper in the techno sounds. Maus’ relentless passion to explore and reinvent herself only helped broaden her horizons and saw her finally walk away from the rather limited drum & bass scene. In 2002, as one of Montreal’s Cream festival headliners, she was commissioned to mix “Cream ’03” (YUL Records, Montreal), a compilation that showcased her new approach to electronic dance music. From that year forward, her sound evolved and matured into a mixture of dub, disco and soul-influenced house and techno music. Her signature style is deep with a constant groove and a funky touch that gets everyone up and moving on the dance floor.
In 2002, Maus started producing her own music, signing her first remix in 2004 for legendary cold-wave band “Trisomie 21” (The Man is a Mix, Chromo Music, France). In 2008, Maus connected with Thoughtless Music, label boss, Noah Pred for some feedback on her latest tracks. A few months later, Pred would release her debut EP “LET GO”, followed by the inclusion of “La Surprise” on “Thoughtless Times V3”.
Maus has been a resident DJ at arguably the best club in North America, Montreal’s Stereo Nightclub and hosted several nights, including her monthly, Danse Contact, at local bar Salon Daome. Over the years, she held residencies at infamous after-hours clubs such as Sona, Aria and others. She’s also had the pleasure of playing many of Montreal’s top music festivals, including Igloofest, Montréal en Lumières, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Les Francofolies, among others. Maus has also been a fixture at Piknic Electronik since their very first edition, retuning to headline at the 10th and 15th anniversaries (2012 – 2017).
MAUS continues to spread knowledge through her music and command crowds around the globe, sharing her music in countries like China (Expo 2010, Shanghai), Australia, France, Spain, Germany, England, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Mexico, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic and the USA. She continues to spread the love through her consistent and dynamic approach to electronic dance music.
