Everything started, once we saw the names of Zip, the head of Perlon label and Margaret that are going to play at Club Midi’s opening on 9th September 2011. So we picked the beloved Cluj city as destination, on the party agenda for about one month now and we waited to see them in action.
Thomas Franzmann by his real name aka Dimbiman (solo music production project)/ Pantytec (music production along Sammy Dee) / Narcotic Syntax (music production project with James Dean Brown, Markus Nikolai and Yapacc) is a real entity in the underground music production while being the one that founded Perlon label with Markus Nikolai in 1997.
It was around 1:00AM when we first got in and for our surprise the club was already almost full, I said surprise because at Cluj we saw, from the start the “party vibe” created by Mihigh, one of the resident Dj’s, with some real dynamic deep minimal house and techo. The party just started and people were dancing, like everybody felt something special having Zip and Margaret around.
Margaret came up next, on the Dj booth and we noticed that her sound is on a continuous developing loop since she started first moves into the production scene in 2010 and since we last heard her play. Margaret’s sounds were like always, serious and deep from dub to minimal and everything between, a real story of underground sound as we like to refer when we’re talking about Perlon’s lady Dygas.
A single idea came from Mihigh’ s and Margaret’s acts, that everybody did their best to warm and prepare the crowd for Thomas Franzmann in person. Even Zip started to walk his shoes on the dance-floor with Mihigh while Margaret was playing. It’s not such a familiar moment to see a man like Zip, just feeling the party vibe and dancing with the people that came to see him. When he started to play it was like the world was divided in two parts one with sounds and one without. And we really mean it, because he was playing some tunes that you won’t hear on a regular basis if you’re in-loved with underground minimal. You can definitely see his background experience and how much he’s familiar with the dance-floors.
And what a night with Mihigh and Perlon’s guests Zip, Margaret at Club Midi Cluj Napoca. We’re looking forward for a next attendance in this club , where people are always smiling for the love of the music.
