A jazz musician by trade, Michael Oberling is a new kid on the block of the electronic music production scene. He began DJing while attending Columbia College Chicago, hosted a successful radio show on Souljack Digital and held a handful of residencies before relocating to the Bay Area in California.
Michael started producing electronic music in early 2015 and soon released his first EP on DeepStitched Records in early 2016 under the former alias Michael Lee. Michael pulls his inspiration from jazz, specifically the era of Miles Davis, Coltrane, Chet Baker etc. His first electronic introduction was from Everything But The Girl from their Walking Wounded album, which his mother purchased second-hand.
His love for deep, soulful music, is expressed through each new release, combining his trumpet playing, vocals and jazz musical knowledge. Michael makes music that everyone can listen to, dance to, and connect with on all levels.

Based in San Francisco he has been producing and DJing deep and tech house since 2011. Since then he has been released on many well respected labels in deep house such as I Records, King Street, Ready Mix Records, Pacha Recordings and many others. He also runs his own record label "Sonic Soul Records" and has released artists such as BiG AL, Robot Needs Oil, Fer Ferrari and many more.
His productions are being supported by some of the top names in deep house today.
UM Records was launched in September 2011 by untitledmusic founder Richie Hartness with more than two decades of promoting, writing, playing and introducing new music to his name.
The labels aim has always been to provide a springboard to new producers, often teaming them up with more established names on releases. UM has been a rich source of up and coming names, many of whom have gone on to big name labels following their time being promoted by UM and all have benefitted from advice and guidance on how to progress from unknown producer to being an in demand name and much sought after producer for other labels around the world.
Across digital and vinyl platforms UM’s sound is ever evolving, always emotive, often challenging the ‘expected sound’ and a name you can trust to bring you the very best of deep house.
The artists roster reads like a “who’s who of deep house” with Marvin Zeyss, Dilby, Tim Andresen, Deep Spelle, Deep Active Sound, Rishi K., BiG AL, Phasen, Yigit Atilla, Evren Ulusoy, Edmund, Karol XVII & MB Valence, Blakkat, Atnarko and Giom being just some of the names we’ve had the pleasure of working with.
UM’s approach to business is a hallmark of its stature too – and its success in returning royalties to its artists goes to prove that underground music can be financially successful (even if that’s only a moderate one). From contract dealings to mastering approvals, from promotion to online presence, licensing and those all important royalty statements, so often never seen by artists, UM prides itself on being commercially minded and innovative underground label for a modern music industry.

Music was always important to me. When I was 14 years old, I started to be interested in the other side of the DJ booth.
Fortunately one of my friends (a young girl too) was into DJing that time, she helped me a lot to understand these things. I soon realized that underground music is really close to my heart.
At the beginning I played techno and tech-house, but I got bored of them in a few months. Then I discovered house and garage.
The biggest influences were Detroit Swindle, Max Graef and Fouk.
One of my best friends, Peter M. Lawrence supported me a lot as well and opened me out.
Thanks to him I met more and more people on Facebook from London, they encouraged me to play and produce music. This meant a lot to me because in Hungary this kind of music is very rare and there's only a couple of people who are into these vibes.
I was 17 when I played my first set in a radio show (thanks Martin)!
This time I felt I have to play vinyls.
I was 18 when I bought my first vinyls and 2 turntables, they are my best friends [🙂]
Later I got a personal radio show at Underground Sessions.
At this time I play mostly deep house and disco. I don't care about genres, the best music for me is based on a fat bassline and the melody is important too, that's all.
Up to now I had no official gigs, but I'm motivated and I hope that I will make proper music soon as a producer, too

Nineteen ninety – eight marked the beginning of a musical journey for Lorraine. Forever having the love of music, she finally applied that love into the media of turntables. For the following three years, she began playing raves and clubs in her home town of Albuquerque, NM. Her style of music developed into a menagerie of hard and soulful techno. In 1999 she became the co-founder of Urban Tek Productions. Urban Tek was not only known for bringing out some of the biggest names in electronic music to Albuquerque, but for some of the largest attendance still to date in the Duke city. As part of the tag team, Beauty and the East, Lorraine began getting hired in places like El Paso, TX, Rockford IL, & Green Bay, WI. On her own, she was playing with the likes of Frankie Bones, Joey Beltram, Juan Atkins, T-1000 and her favorite dj, Heather Heart just to name a few. Though things seemed to heading in the right direction, Lorraine felt a deep seeded need to please God in her life.
In 2001 she was blessed with her very own live mix show on the NM statewide radio station, 88.3 Massive Radio The show was called “The Vibe” and for an hour every Friday night, she pumped the airwaves with the best Inspirational tracks around. As well as serving as an air jock for the station. Out of this time period came the birth of her first cd “Moments of Clarity”.
Two thousand and two brought a year of firsts for 25 year old Lorraine. With the help of producer/singer/songwriter, Joey Beville from the band The Echoing Green, she produced her first track “Givin It Back”. After sending out a demo cd to dj/producer Dj Scott Blackwell, she got booked to play at the week long festival, Cornerstone in 2002 and in 2003. In doing so, she became the first female dj ever to perform at Cornerstone. Lorraine has also become the first female dj on Scott’s label MYX Records. That summer they collaborated to create the 12’ single “Immaculate Intoxication,” found on her mix cd “Reverence,” which was then remixed by Sheltershed, Axon (axon.cleacnrecords.com) and Faith Massive.
From 2002-2005 she was the promoter and resident dj of The Light Club. The Light Club was a non-alcoholic night club that brought in dj’s and bands of all genres of music, from the house bumpin sounds of Roy Davis Jr. to the hard rockin likes of Disciple. She’s was also a part of a collaboration of sister dj’s in Albuquerque called LadyDj’s and a resident at Sundaze and the Zia Dinner in Santa Fe. Beginning January 2003, Lorraine became the vj/producer/editor of YTV’s first dance show, Club Lyt, held at The Light Club. Meanwhile, you could catch her dropping records at such local venues as the Pulse and Martini Grill.
In 2006 Lorraine slowed things down a bit after giving birth to her daughter and began to shift her focus on producing. Since 2007 she has been perfecting the art of songwriting and production. After several years of mastering her skill, Lorraine is beginning her new direction with a new name, Laladee and her first project as a Pro Legend producer. In 2010, Lorraine completed four remixes on the Alumni’s limited edition LP “Reinvented”.
Two thousand eleven was another year of firsts for Lorraine. She joined Pro Legend artists "The Alumni" singing back up vocals and some features on their album "Perfect Man". This allowed her to perform on stage with a live band which she had never done before. The release of "Love" from that album gave the opportunity for Lorraine to be heard on the airwaves. 2012 marked Laladee’s first music video “Eve In Me” and 2013 marked the year of Lorraine's first official radio single "Tainted Crown" under the name of the Unparel. From 2014 to present she has gone back to her roots and has been releasing tracks under the label Export Elite. Through this label she has charted on Beatport several times and has been able to work with producers all over the world. Including Russia’s Magnetic Brothers on the track “Confessions" and more recently has had a remix done of Zuri track “Illusions” by the Muttonheads along with support from a couple of fan based music videos. Check out her increasing catalog on Soundcloud and keep your ears tuned for more tracks in the future
Davis grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and was turned on to house music at an early age by the likes of Lil' Louis, DJ Pierre, Farley Keith (Farley Jackmaster Funk) & Marshall Jefferson. Davis began his own production company named Phuture in the late 1980s and went on to become an A&R scout for record label Strictly Rhythm in NYC whilst also running his Chicago founded record label Undaground Therapy Muzik. A few years later Roy Davis and singer-songwriter Peven Everett wrote and produced the single "Gabriel" which was released on Large Records and later licensed and released on XL Recordings in 1996. The track garnered international airplay, and was played in nightclubs around the world. It peaked at #22 in the UK Singles Chart in November 1997. The single sold over 200,000 copies and has appeared on numerous of compilation albums including Desert Island Mix from Gilles Peterson. In 2004, Davis' track, About Love reached #70 in the UK Singles Chart. Adding to the list of previous chart success with records such as "Who Dares To Believe In Me" under alias The Believers and "All I Do" released on Omar-S artist-run label FXHE.
Roy Davis Jr. has also been known for his work for Thomas Bangalter's label Roulé which operated out of Paris in the early '90s and his production work for artists Eric Benet / Faith Evans, Mary J Blige, Seal, Patti LaBelle, Christina Milian and Morcheeba.
Matty S is 27, based in London and has been broadcasting radio shows since the age of 13.
His younger years were largely spent engrossed on Discogs and locked away in record shops, where he eventually worked as a teenager.
His sets are well known for showing his eclectic and diverse taste with influences of House, Disco, Soul, Funk and Jazz. What connects them together is a passion, love and understanding of the groove.

Black Alley is the latest moniker for Berlin based music lover, record collector and dj/remixer/producer Thomas Pudell.
It is like a box where he now throws all his stuff in - may it be collaborations, own productions, remixes or edits; even some old tracks might get some new clothes...
Thomas has been a DJ for more than 30 years now and is a music lover for his whole life. The classical Jazz and Motown Records of his father laid the foundation for the deep love for quality music he has today and were probably the corner stones of the extensive Collection of more than 35K pieces of Vinyl that are covering the walls of his home.
As a teenager, he started doing his first dj gigs at school parties. Soon after he got more gigs and landed residencies at local clubs in his hometown, where he played a healthy mixture of the music he loves: soulful Disco, funky R&B, plus danceable Jazztunes.
The year 1991 was a turning point in his life as he visited the legendary Weekender in Southport, England, where he first saw DJs like Tony Humphries and 'Little' Louie Vega. Hearing these legends mixing a wide range of soulful / jazzy / tribal house music made Thomas' love for house music even stronger and so his style evolved from a more freestyle and jazzy one to the housier side of things. But even today he uses his rich musical background to mix the freshest house grooves with the finest tunes of dance history.
As a music lover first, he felt the need to express himself and his art not only on the decks, so he entered the world of production and released under several disguises on many labels….
Over the years he has done remixes for Mary J. Blige's "Dance with me" MCA / Universalmusic, Gadjo's "So many Times" Muschihaus/Subliminal/Universalmusic, Alexi Delano &Vincenzos "Against The Wall" / WasNotWorthIt , Raul Paz "La Mulata" Ministry Of Sound Germany, Club Squisito 'I'm flying' /Radioline Italy, to name a few - plus many own Tracks on different Labels like Traveller Records, Pole Postion Records, Oh So Coy, Soulshift Music, Deurun, Itchy Pig Records, Mindbase Recordings, Freeport, Brickhouse,UCA,Hott, Edel, etc. etc. …… and quite a few White Labels as well… shhhh…
2010 was the right time to reset the past and move straight forward onto a new path: Black Alley!
Born and raised in what was once considered the mecca of house music, New York City, Rissa Garcia caught the music bug at a very early age. She grew up listening to all sorts of rhythms including Latin, jazz, R&B,soul, house, rock, disco and funk. Years later she made her way into the club scene and in the year 2000, she discovered a club called Vinyl with a DJ named Danny Tenaglia. She fell in love with the atmoshphere while falling deeper in love with the music. "My soul just seemed to come alive & it completely engulfed me. From the lights to the vibe to the dark walls & sexiness in the air, this is exactly what I have been searching for, this was my Paradise Garage." Inspired by the man who poured his heart & soul into his music, along with many others who do the same, she began to collect records and learn the true art of the DJ. Her first gig back in 2004 was at a small lounge on NYC's Lower East Side where she received rave reviews. Since then Rissa has been lucky enough to have played some of the best venues in NYC, such as Cielo, Output,Santos Party House,TBA and more.
She currently runs her own imprint, NightChild Records, and has released over sixty EP's from producers across the globe. With some of her recent releases receiving support from Alexander Robotnik, Louie Vega, X-Press 2, Jus-Ed and more, she strives to offer a consistent quality synonymous with those who have an influence on her.
