Joris Voorn has quite frankly smashed it this year. Not only has he played almost every festival, nightclub and big event of 2010 but he has also managed to hold down worldwide residencies including his very own at the club. After a playing one of the toughest dates of the year last June, he returns to roll us into November with an extra special 7 hours alongside Nic Fanciulli. Hailed for putting the house back into house music, both him and Fanciulli provide the best tracks to have come out of this year. There is no denying that one of the biggest soundtracks to the summer was ‘La Mezcla,’ if you don’t recognise the name then you will definitely know the track. Produced by the one and only Michel Cleis, we are ecstatic to announce that he will be making his Ministry debut on this Saturday. Joining him is Cosmonauts and Krysko.

In the Closure room we have pulled together our biggest lineup yet! Headlining we have two amazing DJs / producers, Type 1 and Alan Prosser.

Type 1 is a London based Techno, Tech House and Minimal DJ and Producer/Engineer Baz Sanders.

Type 1 has been working hard, playing mainly on the London circuit for 8 years and from this experience have rocked numerous residencies in London and have played at most of London’s major clubs and have held residencies at The Mass, The End, The Fridge, Fire and The Cross.

His presence on the decks and passion for the music has taken him through Europe, he has toured Ibiza on numerous occasions and has also played some great nights in Poland, Holland, Thailand and Goa.

Type 1’s sound is currently being supported by being supported by Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Mark Knight, Tom Hades, Ant Brooks, Luke Porter, Valentino Kanzyani, Marco Carola, Jon Rundell, Adam K, John Karagiannis, Piatto, Mario Piu, Marco V, Luca Ricci & Craig Stewart to name a few. He recently launched a new label, Malfunktion Records, which has already topped the charts on

Alan Prosser has played at various Closure events before and always smashes it for us. His recent release topped the trackitdown chart and we are delighted to have him on the lineup again.

Also on the night we have Closure DJs, Steve Worrell & Matt Elphick and Evan S. Steve & Matt blew the roof off at our last Ministry event. The room was still going off at 5am when they forced us to close!! Evan S is a Closure regular with various other residencies around the UK. This night is set to be something special 🙂

Type 1 – Altered ST8 – AP remix out NOW

•October 30, 2010 • Leave a Comment

As Winter time approaches and the nights draw in, Malfunktion Records drop another cracking release with enough quality music to keep us all feeling warm and fuzzy!

This release is a tribute to Ron Trent’s seminal house classic ‘Altered States’.

Label boss Type 1 takes to the controls on this occasion and fuses a techno driven groove with skippy percussion, epic strings much in the same as the original and some precise production! That breakdown will have any worthy dance floor in the palm of your hand and when that groove drops back in, expect all hell to break loose! Old skool and nu skool combine perfectly here, not to be missed!

Malfunktion regular Alan Prosser steps up to deliver the first remix and he keeps it true to his style by adding a bubbling and subby bassline, some deep synth hits and that warm synth that works it’s way into the breakdown will sound amazing on a big club system! Energy levels are sky high here so expect that energy to translate into moving feet on the dance floor – Nice!

Martin Bundsen is up next and after enjoying success on labels such as Itch Records, we are happy to welcome him to the Malfunktion family! He adds a really cool twist on the track with some retro sounding electro synths, panned and gated fx and some breakbeat drum patterns to keep things fresh and interesting. Definitely one worth checking out for the deeper floors.

Dan Ferritto concludes the package with an all round slower version and one that delves more into the big room house sound, and it works an absolute treat! This would work on a more serious dance floor or a slightly more twisted dance floor at those after hours parties! As with all mixes here, the production is uber tight so you can turn this up as loud as you like and the quality will shine through!

Once again the Malfunktion crew deliver a wide and varied selection of mixes to cater for all fans of house, tech house and techno and this is only round 5, trust us when we say there are lots more to come…!

A Little Update for ya!!!

•October 2, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I just thought i would shoot out a little update for you, This week, the Korablove remixes that i did for KG Beats records in Chicago finally came out. There are 2 remixes by me, you can get them from the link below:


Mel Merritt’s track, I wish comes out in early November on SLR and includes a great remix by Dan Ferritto and another deep ones my your truly.

I have a new single out on the 4th October called Short Sirket/Electronic Heaven, which already has support from Adam K, Anderson Noise, Dean Demanuele, Dean Laidler, Felipe K, Igor Tchkotoua (pig and dan), Kenny Palmer, Mark Knight, Martin Bundsen, Nick Shaq and Ricky Crespo.

Short SirKet has a bouncy tech vibe with a cool flute melody and vocal snippets. Massive breakdowns ensure this is one definitely for the dance floor. Electronic Heaven is a much deeper affair, with its deep sub bass line and quirky percussion, its takes you on an old school journey into arps and acid!

On October the 9th i will be at the H Bar in Brighton:

Malfunktion Records at The H Bar in Hove is a one off FREE event.

Malfunktion Records has really hit the ground running with two number 1’s on and supported by Luciano, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Mark Knight, Tom Hades, Pig & Dan, Ant Brooks, Luke Porter, Valentino Kanzyani, Marco Carola to name a few.

We celebrate by bringing Alan Prosser to Brighton, He scored a No.1 with Matt Smallwoods rmx of Tech Me out knocking Toolroom Records of the top spot and it stayed put for a whole week.

He will be supported by head honcho Type 1, Dan Ferritto & Mr. Ron from Malfunktion records plus guests Billy Mauseth, Joe Mitchell, Dean Laidler & Mick Yeoman.

See you on the dancefloor!

So that’s about it folks, thanks again for all your support as always, news next month about the Ministry Of Sound date in November and some new releases

Take care

Tech Me Out – OUT NOW

After the huge success of the first 2 releases which have seen support from the likes of Luciano, Dubfire, Luke Porter, Laurent Garnier & Mark Knight, the Malfunktion crew are back with another storming addition!

Alan Prosser is at the controls on this occasion and lays down a really cool, deep tinged house track that has big room written all over it with crisp percussion and lush synths that will drive those floors crazy! Alan has been knocking out some great tracks of late so Malfunktion are really happy to have him on board.

Matt Smallwood remixed the 1st Malfunktion release and his mix went to number 1 on so he has been drafted back in for round 3! Matt is hot property at the moment with the likes of Carl Cox, Mark Knight, Daniel Portman and Marco V all providing support for his tracks and he throws down a tough and groovy re-rub that is aimed at the tech house floors, and trust us when we say that it is LARGE!

Rounding off the House mixes is Brassneck who, believe it or not, are the 90’s sensation band D:ream but under their dancier alter ego! They stay true to the original vibe but add some alternative synth layers to keep things interesting and we look forward to hearing more from these guys soon!

Alex Ellenger provides the progressive house version of the track and his Eden residency in Ibiza can be heard immediately – Big stabs, deep grooves and an epic breakdown that will sound oh so good on a big system!

Dean Demanuele has been flying high on the production front recently with some exciting collabs with Pig & Dan and releases on their way on the mighty Boxer imprint. He keeps things very stripped back and a little slower in BPM’s so fans of the darker tech sound will be all over this one!

Dan Ferritto is last up on this incredible package and fuses a minimal laced groove with big percussion hits and dark fx, perfect for those more serious sets when you need to get that crowd bobbing and weaving!

And there we have it. Once again the Malfunktion crew prove that they are a new force to be reckoned with and provide something for everybody in the form of 6 very different, but very playable tracks to rock your dance floors. We hope you enjoy them!
