Artist Biography

Real Name: Malcolm Abdilla
Monikers: Trebon, Ecosphere
Genre: Progressive House, Techno


"Still at the age of 24, this Maltese Dj and Producer already has several releases under his belt with alter ego "Deepfunk" for his deep and melodic music, "Trebon" which he uses for his own brand of underground minimal beats and 'Ecosphere' for more electro and experimental stuff.

Over the past few years, Malcolm has garnered attention for his extremely diverse and genre crossing studio efforts. "Discotronic" was the first track to introduce him to the music scene, being featured on Dj Ruby’s Pure Malta CD Compilation out on Fektive Records. Just a few months later, he signed up five tracks with Italian Labels, Stranamente Music and Superbia Records. 'Transitions" was then released in September 2007 with Emote Music in the US, shortly after his tracks were already getting played by Djs from all across the dance music spectrum. Everyone from Hernan Cattaneo, Anthony Pappa to Thomas Penton and Simon & Shaker have all included Deepfunk's productions in their sets. Cattaneo has also featured the track "Transitions" in his world famous Metro 95.1 Radio Show in December 2007 and other tracks have also been featured in guest mixes by international artists on proton radio. He had also been invited multiple times as a guest Dj on one of the most listened internet radio station in the UK, Pulse Radio. Malcolm even hit 2nd place in the "best selling chart" on 3beatrecords.com with "Pain Killing Pills".

In April 2009 Deepfunk got contacted by one of the UK's early pioneers, Norman H, dj, promoter and Stripped Records label Manager, wanting to sign nine of Deepfunk's tracks on two e.p's. Also got requested to remix Nomad in the dark's "Attia" which then ended up doing another remix for "Neriya" which will be release in 2010, Norman H's own re-release "Wrapped in Plastic" which was also supported by Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren. Things were now looking very promising as Sasha, John Digweed, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo and Dave Seaman were constantly supporting his tracks. Releases on top labels like Piemont, Lowbit, Destroy the Ego (Kindred), Whartone and Segment soon followed.

Some important gigs were warming up and playing alongside artists like James Holden, Guy J, Fairmont, Charlie May, Dave Seaman, Nathan Fake, Len Faki and Sasha.

Early 2010, Deepfunk was requested to join a new label launching in June, Silence Through Music founded by Eduardo Moises and Parlange in the USA to release a number of original tracks and remixes alongside artists like Way Out West, Charlie May / Spooky, Guy J, Jim Rivers, Quivver, Anthony Pappa, King Unique, Yousef and of other top producers.

Malcolm keeps himself constantly emerged in the world of electronic music, in the studio, and DJing with both old and new technology, and listening to a wide variety of music to better his sound. Not only impressing the crowd with his productions, he also manages to deliver mind blowing live performances and DJ sets using Ableton Live for instant editing and some hardware, using bits and pieces from different tracks, making it sound unique in every set.

Surely the next step for Malcolm will be finishing his debut album, which will be launched by the end of this year. With an ever-expanding career and zest for pushing electronic music forward, Deepfunk is definitely one to watch in 2010." (MySpace)
