Noema's Magical Moves Through Space and Time

Reportedly born to remain a child out of the passionate love affair between Silesian rocket scientist and a man with only one shoe, raised at a pet asylum by its founder and his yellow cat, Noema spent most of his early formative years obsessively listening to traditional Mongolian dance music and practicing magic from which, among other fine values, he extracted an intense desire for travel. Sailing straight into the wind, his journey into the Unknown took him from China to northern Romania. An El Dorado of occult groups, lodges and spiritualist circles back then, there he simply could not have failed to discover his talent for mediumship and to perfectly teach himself graphology, chorology, phrenology, and astrology. This sort and quality of knowledge wide-opened his eyes to many wonderful career opportunities. Self-employed for a while as a peddler, mesmerizer, quack, fortuneteller, body custodian, secretary of mind, soul minister, he then resolved to advance his mastery lifting the reliquarium of his experiences to the high-altitude level. The decision came into being in the form of a sect that he arranged and nourished above the clouds in the Carpathian Mountains.

"Until you walk the unbeaten path, you'll never know where it leads..." 

To conjugate verbs to the present tense: it is there so close to heaven and in the gentle embrace of his followers that Noema ventures to explore the universe of rhythm and other possibilities of music making. Until you walk the unbeaten path, you'll never know where it leads... Soon fully consumed by the process, he abandons his cult descending without warning or being invited upon Berlin – intuitively right place to test his newly acquired techniques, to accommodate his Dionysian spirit, to vaporize his surplus bacchanalian energies; for anyone to surprise oneself going beyond one’s own expectations and borders. 

Hence the motto: “Creating the Possibilities, Exploring the Opportunities”. Explicitly or otherwise, it imprints everything Noema has been doing ever since – his residency at Zur wilden Renate, collaborations with the likes of Apparat, Daniel Wang, Dixon, Basement Jaxx, to name some, or production to his own name, or reproductions by Soul Clap, Wolf+Lamb, Axel Boman, Toby Tobias, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, or support by Theo Parrish, Moodyman, Crazy P, Nature, or, out of doubt, his worldwide rituals under the signature of THE MAGIC MOVEMENT.

THE MAGIC MOVEMENT. Here it comes.

Scorpios Rituals 2016

Our jumbo compendium titled Scorpios Rituals 2016 containing more than 60 profiles amply appended with biographies and multimedia would take an elephant to upload it en masse and another on the receiving end to download. We are splitting the volume in about these many lighter segments to keep you posted on what lies ahead – each bit at a time and when that time comes.

You will find some names world-renowned and resounding, some familiar from Scorpios 2015, some utterly unknown and cryptic. Sonic entertainers, auditory artistes, record collectors, sound clip archivists, sub-underground producers, beat-matchers, glitch architects, ambience alternators, random pattern catalysts, loop pathfinders, fader collaborators, semi-automatic virtuosos, vst illusionists, high-pass filter maestros, fulbright village musicologists, dehydrated desert deejays, ancestral spiritualists, magic tribalists on the move, jungle hipsters on tour, urban hustlers off the leash, air-guitar medalists on ableton, sex symbols in denial and disguise, prophets of microgroove, turntable houdinis, sultans of midi-mixing, don juans of dropping bass, love-frequency therapists, downtempo yogis, shamans of acoustic techno, disco nudists, deep house apollonians, music personifiers, unswerving sui generis, the variant combinations of all these, and more… Each comes in so many identity dimensions* .

Quantity equals quality: the next 4 months at the Sunset Terrace may easily go down in history as the most exciting "instant" ever lived through on the island.

* DJ Culture in the Mix: Power, Technology, and Social Change.

May 2016. Until then!

Dear Friends,

This is to tell you we are closed for the season. Thank you for making the time so special, so exciting and so memorable. For making the project possible! All our effort -- tremendous as it has been -- would be futile without you actively appreciating the results, without you being our guests and supporters, without your good vibes. Thank you for bringing Scorpios to life and breathing so much soul into it!

Looking forward to seeing you all in 2016!

NU – He Does Not Exist

The exhaustion of not knowing anything about NU the person is tiring and very hard on the nerves. Every hour spent searching on line for a bit of information to no avail gets you weaker. Upon failure growing with each step so miserable, you catch yourself thinking how dismal, how heavy it is to listen to NU’s mix and another one and more to come – the whole sequence looped to never end the indulgence – and to know virtually nothing of the individual behind his music.
