7 Miles Below
Magui is a project by Guido Spaanbroek and Matthias Meinhardt, two musicians/producers with a totally different background who decided to explore the seemingly infinite boundaries of electronic music. Without limiting themselves to the rules of contemporary dance genres such as Electro, Trance, Ambient and Techno, Magui goes further by fusing these styles with elements from classical music, new wave, progressive rock, psychedelica, world- and accoustic music. After setting up their small but very powerful digital studio in late 2004, the challenging process of fusing their musical visions began. After half a year, the first tracks started to take shape and in the beginning of 2005, the two decided it was time to work on an album. On may first this year, their debut album '7 Miles Below' will be released via their own label Xilongo. The album will be promoted and sold primarily via the internet at various locations. A remix project of a selection of tracks from the album is in the works, as well as plans for a new album to be released early next year. They are also working out the issues for an electronic band to play live. Testgigs will be given towards the end of the year in their hometown of Den Haag, The Netherlands.
