GIDEÖN has a background in music spanning 30 years. In addition to his practice as a recording artist, stage designer and curator, he is a touring DJ and is an avid collector of vinyl. Since his first set of turntables in 1990, GIDEÖN has devoted his life to collecting vinyl from the US, Jamaica, Latin America, Africa, and the UK. He specialises in Northern Soul, Latin, Reggae, Gospel, and Disco rarities. House Music, above all, is his first and greatest love. He has a degree in Music with Visual Practice (BA Hons) and is currently guest Creative Director of Music for London Borough of Culture 2022.
GIDEÖN co-founded, co-created and curates Block9’s festival nightlife institutions NYC Downlow, Genosys, Maceo’s and IICON and is also resident and co-booker at London’s hottest queer club night Adonis. As a radio DJ, GIDEÖN has been actively involved in broadcasting for many years now. After cutting his teeth on London’s pirate stations in the late nineties, he has hosted a weekly show on London’s Soho Radio for 3 years. He is a frequent guest on London’s Rinse FM and has recently contributed to BBC Radio One, NTS and BBC 6 Music.
Having worked for years in a duo, first as 3 Channels and now as the lauded, world-touring house outfit Catz ’n Dogz, Polish producer Voitek Taranczuk’s newest project, Ketiov, is personal. It is about focusing on his own process and creative instincts — after all, Ketiov is Voitek in reverse. Here, he indulges his boundary-breaking impulses, crossing genres and experimenting with sound. Ketiov has lived in Poland, whereas a young Dj he hosted parties by his same name and recently he co-founded the Wooded Festival, and Berlin, where he refined his distinct sound at prestigious venues like Panorama Bar. Now located in Madrid, he is a resident at Cafe Berlin Madrid and with his partner David Rigote, he started the LGBTQ party series CARBS. Releasing tracks himself and only on vinyl, Ketiov has repressed his 2017 “Ketiov A/B” twice due to popular demand, and received strong feedback for “Ketiov Edits 01” (Jan 2018) and “Ketiov C/D&E” (Feb 2018). “Rhythm Trainx Vol 2,” his piece de resistance featuring huge sound and only one drummer, was released on Gerd Janson’s Running Back in May 2018.
Ketiov’s innovative rhythmic play and effortless mixing of funk, disco, and 90s house have landed him 2 Dj mixes with the infamous Honey Soundsystem Collective from San Francisco and dance sets at clubs all around Europe and the world at large. Ketiov believes in order to be a great collaborator, one needs to pursue their own projects alongside. His fourth EP, the upcoming “King of Hypocrisy,” is much-anticipated because it draws from Ketiov’s personal life. Written in private and kept to himself until complete, Ketiov’s brainchild implements field recordings and ambient sounds from his own life. Only time will tell how Voitek’s addictive sound will evolve on his own and in his powerful collaborations.
