Azimute is a musical project combining the energies of notorious Techno and House Dj producer Cesare Marchese and veteran DJ-producer Philippe Quenum.
Cesare Marchese (aka Cesare vs Disorder, Queen Atom, Strangers in Heaven, Cez) is the freshman in the band, but no newcomer to electronic music. His productions have been released on top labels such as BPitch Control, Vakant, Crosstown Rebels and Get Physical, playing regularly at top clubs and festivals in all continents (Detroit Electronic Music Festival / WMC Miami Winter Conference / ADE Amsterdam / Off Sonar Barcelona) in addition to residencies in Sao Paulo (Serialism) and Ibiza (Unusual Suspects Ibiza). His experience stretches to all aspects of the Techno and House universe; he’s been running his label Serialism from London since 2007 before moving to Berlin & São Paulo in the following years and promotes label nights at Watergate, Fabric, Rex club and other top clubs in Europe and Brazil.
Quenum is well-known in the scene and well respected for his longevity and quality contributions. He started his first
label Access58 in London in 1995 and co-founded Cadenza Records with Luciano few years later, composing with him the techno anthem Orange Mistake. His discography stretches over decades and continents, and includes top labels such as Soma, Crosstown Rebels and NovaMute among many others. Following Quenum’s release of his first album, Face to Face, on Serialism Records, the two artists became close friends. They quickly realised they share
a common musical vision and way-of-life, one centered on friendship and bringing happiness to those around them
This is the vision that Azimute wants to share in their performances, a journey, a fresh and joyful
experience daring to discover new realms of musical bliss. Azimute’s first release on Crosstown Rebels came in the
form of an EP entitled Control (CRM134), it was well received and supported by the industries elite. This was followed
by an appearance on John Digweeds “Live In Toronto” Compilation. The pair have also set up their own LTD edition
vinyl only label called Azimute Music, The first release AZMred has been praised by DJs and magazines such as Faze marking it 9 out 10, its also sold out. This one was followed up by releases with the Crosstown family on their sister label Rebellion out 20th July 2015, The long awaited “We Are The Sound EP” on Serialism out in September 2015 with part 2 and remixes by Livio & Roby, Konrad Black and Alex Kid.
In 2016 their musical output extended to the legendary Derrick Mays, Transmat Records. The pair were based in Ibiza, London and Germany working on new material for their imprint Azimute Records. They toured the summer extensively all over Europe with their last gig at ADE alongside Derrick May & M.A.N.D.Y for the Transmat x Gets Physical showcase. In November & December Azimute embarked on their anticipated North- and South America tour.
At the moment Cesare & Quenum are putting the last hands on their album which will be released the second half of 2017.
