John Creamer & Stephane K

今のハウスミュージック界で新しいスタイルを常に追求し、多大な影響力を持つミュージックプロデューサーJohn Creamer & Stephane K。New Yorkのハウスシーンにおいて彼らがもたらした功績は誰もが知るところである。

 

2001年、JohnとStephaneは Satellite Records傘下のPipelineから数曲のメガヒットリミックスをプロデュースし、プロデューサーとしての名を世界に轟かせることになった。

 

まずは、ブレイクのきっかけになったKosheenの 'Hide U'とヴォーカルハウスとして完成度の高いリミックスSatoshi Tomiieの “Love In Traffic”である。

 

その後、IIO ”Rapture”のRemixが世界中で大ブレイク!アナログ盤にもかかわらず20万枚以上のセールスを記録、CD,コンピレ-ションを合わせると60万枚を超える大HITとなり、イギリスのHITチャートの常連となる。

 

2001年にはMuzik Magazine Dance Awards 2001の“Remixer Of The Year”を獲得。 リミキサーとして世界の頂点に立つ。

 

その後はNew Order, Sinead O'Connor, Moby, Crystal Method, Hybrid, Yoko Ono などのメジャーアーティストから, Danny Tenaglia, Cevin Fisher, DJ VibeなどのTop DJのRemixまで手がける。

 

2002年、BedrockよりMix CDをリリース。2005年は、オリジナル曲のRosko “Love Is A Drug” が全米ビルボード誌ダンスヒットチャートNo'1獲得!

 

その様々な要素で混成されたサウンドのスタイルは彼ら自身のオリジナルであり、簡単には言葉で表すことが出来ないだろう。あえて形容するならばセクシーな曖昧色、危険な催眠色、強い音に込められたトライバル色というような神秘的な混成具合である。

 

そしてそのサウンドには、John Digweed, Danny Tenaglia, Danny Howells等のメジャーDJ、さらにはオノヨーコといった芸術家までもが絶賛したえず注目している。

 

 

John Creamer & Stephane K are international DJs, and as a duo, a New York City-based electronic music and house music production team. They are perhaps best known for creating original dance singles as well as dance remixes for artists such as iiO, Moby, New Order, Rosko and Sinead O'Connor.[1]

 

In 2002, they were named "Remixers of the Year" by Remix Magazine. Their careers reached new heights that year when they were chosen by John Digweed to mix the 4th volume of his acclaimed "Bedrock" mixed compilation series. Their work has been featured on many DJ mixes from labels including Boxed, Bedrock, Universal Records, Global Underground, Ultra Records, Sony, BMG, London Records, Warner Brothers, and Ministry of Sound. The duo's production style often falls into the category of progressive house, and they have been recognized for having a distinctive, identifiable sound which usually incorporates steamy percussion and dark, tribal effects. The dance remixes in their portfolio include Kosheen's "Hide U," Satoshi Tomiie's "Love In Traffic," New Order's "Crystal," Nat Monday's "Waiting," Hybrid's "True To Form," Moony's "Doves," Puretone's "Addicted To Bass," The Crystal Method's "You Know It's Hard," Sinead O'Connor's "Troy" and iiO's anthem, "Rapture." Most notable are the remixes of Kosheen's "Hide U" which won them remix of the year at the 2001 Muzik Awards, entered the UK Top 10 at number 6 and topped Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart; Sinead O' Connor's "Troy" which topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart; and iiO's "Rapture" which hit number 2 on both the UK singles chart and on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. Creamer & K's original productions during this period include the lyrically sexual and provocative single "I Love You," featuring Oliver Twisted (a.k.a. Craig Mitchell) on vocals, the obscenity-laced "Fuck Sonnett," and the frequently licensed "Wish You Were Here."[
