Matthias Tanzmann and Butch are the first artists confirmed at Nights.ro Awards 2013
The annual Nights.ro Awards will take place on Friday, February 22nd at the Roman Arenas in Bucharest.
With the event approaching, Nights.ro have disclosed three important figures confirmed at the awards in February. Moon Harbour captain Matthias Tanzmann, who was also the headliner at 11 years of Nights.ro in June 2012, Butch and Onur Ozer are the first artists to be announced.
As you may know, each year begins with a campaign through which users or visitors are determined to vote ‘the best of’ from a wide variety of categories. On www.nights.ro you can vote for either “the best Romanian DJ”, “the best event of the year”, “the best club” or even “the best spring”. The campaign goes on about 45 days, after which it settles in one of Bucharest’s outstanding venues for a sensational event starring “the best Romanian DJ” (according to the number of votes). Until now, we’ve seen Nights.ro Awards events hosted at some of the capital city’s most reputable locations like World Trade Plaza, Kristal Glam Club, Bamboo and Space Club, plus we’ve also listened to Romania’s top electronic artists Rhadoo, Raresh, Pagal, Adrian Eftimie and Optick, who indubitably showed up behind the decks to perform in front of their fans. Nights.ro Awards furthermore had the pleasure to invite a few distinguished producers from abroad, names like David Squillace, James Holden, Ame, Tiefschwarz, Doc Martin, Valentino Kanzyani, Samim, Hybrid or Plump DJs have touched down onto the scene along the series of events.
Matthias Tanzmann is the owner of Cargo Edition and Moon Harbour Recordings, the labels that made him popular worldwide, as remarkable DJ’s playlisted most of his tracks. Not only that, he also earned his spot as resident at Circoloco held at DC10, winning 3 consecutive nominations at Ibiza DJ Awards. His live gigs in Romania in 2012, at 11 years of Nights.ro and at Sunwaves-Mayday have brought thousands of party people together, who proved to be so full of energy, they didn’t stop dancing ‘till late in the morning.
Now, on the other end we have Butch, another German DJ and producer who performed for the first time in Romania at Hala de Muzica in 2010, then headlined the event at Karnivale this summer at the Roman Arenas. Butch, aka Bülent Gürler has been releasing records on important labels such as Cocoon Recordings, Cecille, Hot Creations, 8bit, Rekids, Remote Area and most recently on Visionquest. He’s also played at some of the world’s most exciting electronic music festivals like at Ushuaia Beach Hotel, Sankeys (Ibiza), Sonne Mond Sterne, Loveland Festival 2012, Nature One 2012, Watergate (Berlin), Mephisto (Barcelona), Pollerwiesen 2012 (Germany), Infusion Lounge and Rooftop at Icon (L.A.)
As the list continues, Onur Ozer finds his seat among the nominees. The Turkish artist has been stirring up parties in places like Rex Club (Paris), Club der Visionaere (Berlin), Treehouse (Miami, USA), Cocoon Heroes (New York), King Club and Made Club (Italy), also performing at huge events such as Amsterdam Dance Event (Cocoon Showcase @Under Current) and at Grand Closing (Cocoon @Amnesia Ibiza). Summer 2012 brought Onur Ozer in Romania, at Karnivale @Roman Arenas, an event which proved his talent to be outstanding, being petitioned more and more to headline at events and festivals around.
