Special Case is a unique trio comprised of accomplished producers and djs hailing from Russia. Like all the great collectives before them this one came together to create awesome music and to fight the forces of evil around the world. The trio is made up of Arram Mantana, Tripmastaz and Roustam — three different creative individuals whose tastes range from abstract minimal to classic house, that share a common vision and have their own distinct take on modern electronic music.
Arram Mantana is an established house music dj in Russia and has become a very respected artist of his generation. Hailing from St.Petersburg — the cultural capital of the country, he has been making Russians dance for over 15 years. Recent releases on Cecille and Be As One are further cementing his status as one of Russia's true house music greats and a great selector that seamlessly fuses various genres.
Tripmastaz is an accomplished producer and a highly in-demand musician and dj. His impeccable series of releases in the last few years include records on top-tier labels such as Real Tone, Be As One, Cecille and his own Plant 74. He has also become a staple of Dj Sneak's Magnetic Records — with his latest release "Roll Dat" being remixed by Loco Dice. Almost single-handedly he has been making Russia decidedly more funky over the last 10 years
Roustam rounds out the trio as a forward thinking and talented dj and promoter in Russia. He was raised on a steady diet of classic US House and techno in the Midwest and spends his time between Detroit and Moscow. In his native city Roustam has promoted events and performed with the who is who of cutting edge dance music. He has become known for comfortably fitting in as a back 2 back partner with many of his guests such as Matt Tolfrey, Droog, Clive Henry, Valentino Kanzyani, Seuil and the notoriously meticulous Romanians Petre Inspirescu and Praslea. These extended sets have showcased Roustam's fluid and original style.
All together these three make quite an uncanny trio full of eclectic tastes. They first came together, like Voltron, to create their debut release for Culprit and were remixed by such established and different artists as Robert James and Petre Inspirescu. For such a young group this was a confirmation that something special is brewing. Special Case is already working on taking over the planet with engaging live performances and dedicated studio work.
