Guest Mix By Corrie (UK) On Saturday 31.01 ---> 2100-2200

 

Corrado Loi alias 'Corrie' is one of the most exciting pioneers of British Tech House. Leaving Italy for London in 1985 to work as a fashion designer he quickly made a mark in the capital's nightclub scene. His first dj break was in 1987 at his own club night “Roma” frequented by London's stalwarts such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Leigh Bowery. Beginning as a fun night, a cult club emerged where cutting edge music and eccentric antics of the crowd made it unique. But it was in 1989 with the explosion of Acid House when he decided to seriously pursue his passion for djing, joining the Sunrise crew first, and later securing a weekly residency at the infamous Club Labyrinth where - with his much anticipated closing set - he quickly established himself as an upcoming talent on the house and techno scene. His first record "Hyperspector's" under his alias name of Mesquite managed to get enough exposure to soon be released on Groove.de Vol. 1 cd series and immediately he was asked to spin regularly at venues like Tresor and E-Werk (Berlin), Ptuch (Moscow), Twilo (NYC), Turnmills (London). 
Vinyl buyer and behind the counter smiler for London's prestigious Zoom Records, then Tag and Blackmarket Records all throughout the nineties he juggled his time between the djing, throwing parties and focussing on his studio production under the name of Corrie, Aquanauts, Sambal. It's also around this time that as a parallel venture he got involved with trip hop ‘queen’ Nicolette as support dj for her European Tour. Forwarding into the new millennium he decided it was time to take on a new challenge by moving to Buenos Aires in 2004. Since then he shared time and efforts between Europe and South America, having regular spots at Fabric (London), Eastern Europe, D-Edge (Sao Paulo), Pacha and Crobar (Buenos Aires) and major parties and festivals worldwide. Spring 2013 is the beginning of a new chapter in Corrie's life, deciding to move home and studio back to his native island of Sardinia. His production dates back from 1994 with some early works for No Easy Love and Zoom. Since then he has released over 60 singles, remixes and compilations on labels such as Sony, Epic, Fabric, Wiggle, Lucidflow, Harry Klein Records, Presslab, Bosh, 4 Kenzo, Evasive, DSW, Unlock, Arjaus, Attary, Kreative, Rumour, Seamless. He also runs his own imprint Eat More Beef Music. Launched late 2007 the label has taken under its wing artists like Guti, Grünbox, Alex Under, Ronan Portela, Alexis Cabrera, Ariel Rodz to name a few delivering a unique blend of electronic house and techno, incorporating retro elements and afro dopeness into stripped solid grooves. Corrie’s music has been supported by a wide range of djs such as Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Miss Kittin, Mr G, Stacey Pullen, Craig Richards, John Digweed, Yousef.
