iEDM Radio Episode 118: Mosimann

November 20th, 2016
Bio 
After four months of heavy exposure on French TV in 2008, many people thought Quentin Mosimann's artistic path would be nothing but common. Under the spot lights of his uprising fame and signed by the biggest major company, everything was set to mute this young artist into one more throwable star. Once exposed to the almighty music industry's rules, he had to learn how to hide his deep love for electronic music, while his first album hit the stores with a stunning success ('Duel' is double-platinium certified). However, this wild night bird already had something else in mind, dreaming of larger horizons based on a wide range of electronic sounds. A long time before winning the most looked after vocal French TV show, he defined his strong identity hanging out with his buddies, all DJ's and hard-level clubbers. Just like them, Mosimann considered his decks as his first girlfriends, improving his own skills step by step, through self-taught technics. He also used to deejay in order to pay for his studies, by the way. Therefore, once he gained popularity, he naturally skipped his voice to focus on deejaying. Transition was not brute, though, as his creativity led him to mix a bit of his two natural skills. Respecting his high taste for club culture and electronic music, he went through his music collection and updated his vision of a high-energy dance music. There was no other option for him to loop out the very predictable mainstream format. Proud of the French heritage, inspired by some of his fellow heroes (Jean- Michel Jarre, Cerrone, Daft Punk, Laurent Garnier, David Guetta or, more lately, DJ Snake), he worked hard to build a new musical avatar powered by his strong passion for mixing. Behind his "Change Your Mind" baseline, his will to redefine deejaying came early in his mind. You just need to see him acting live to testify his incredible ability to perform and do the show. Forget about the classical image of all these DJ's satisfied with beat-matched transitions. Mosimann sacrifies his body and shares a wild and sweaty creativity. He plays with the crowd and stretches all kind of emotions into an euphoric danceable experience. He beats the tempo, plays the drums, scratches, sings and jumps like an LFO. Freed from any format, he loves mixing in the darkness of clubs as well as spotting the largest festival stages, offering then an overwhelming performance. Each of his spectacular shows is driven by his intention to give the best. Gifted artist, he drew his own path managing to bring the largest audience to his large electronic culture, somehow underground. After seven years of a solid progression, which four of them were lightened by a solid ranking within DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs, some new perspectives seem to appear now. Even if his hectic touring schedule bounds him to travel a lot, he has recently increased his studio schedule, composing new material and jamming on his synths and drums. Still working as an ambivalent artist, he tries to clone himself to combine his love for Pop with a powerful club energy. Circling back all of his deepest influences and inspirations, Mosimann acts like a chemist looking for unexpected recipes. Mind your ears, you shall be surprised right soon.

iEDM Radio Episode 116: Kill the Buzz

November 1st, 2016

Bio
Kill the Buzz, real name Adithya Nanuru, began making music at the age of 10, igniting a passion that would eventually see him playing to some of the biggest crowds in the world and alongside some of the biggest names in electronic music. The Breda-based producer has climbed the progressive house ladder right to the top and is now reaching the lofty heights after receiving well deserved praise from the community and valiant support from the titans of the upper reaches, a cast that includes artists such as Dannic and Sander van Doorn, as well as the legendary David Guetta and current world beater Hardwell. With his 2012 breakthrough track ‘Party Hard’ signalling to the world that Kill The Buzz was the name to watch, Nanuru has since gone from strength to strength, supporting Hardwell, the biggest DJ on the planet, around the globe as part of his I Am Hardwell series of shows, signing to Revealed Recordings and releasing some of the most vital progressive house of the past few years. 
Kill The Buzz heard his music broadcast to millions when his collaborative track with Joey Suki ‘Life is Calling’, received worldwide radio airplay at the tail end of 2013, sending huge waves through the dance music community. With its exquisite combination of towering electro house beats and melodic sensibilities, the track propelled Kill the Buzz into the upper echelons of the genre where he remains today. On Revealed Recordings Nanaru has released numerous collaborations with both up and coming artists like David Spekter and established names such as Manse, with whom he recently ventured out alongside on the Revealed Presents Asian tour, playing to frenzied audiences in cities including Octagon in South Korea, Levels in Hong Kong and Myst in Shanghai across 8 dates in total.
Kill The Buzz’s music is an elaborate combination of expertly crafted electro house and compelling progressive beats, infinitely danceable but retaining a sense of intricate melody and harmony, something perfectly highlighted in ‘Dreamin’, his joint release with fellow Revealed artist Ralvero in 2015, as well as his scorching remix of Jason Derulo’s ‘Want To Want Me’ that took the pop sensation’s original working to new, lofty heights. Equally suited for radio play, humongous festivals and intimate rooms, KTB’s distinctive branch of the genre incorporates both influences from his peers and supporters, as well as unique experimentation with texture and sound. The latter part of the year also saw him gear up for a collaborative release with label mates Futuristic Polar Bears entitled ‘Shake it off’, a track that received support from names including Ummet Ozcan, R3hab and many more, with his rapid trajectory to the top becoming further solidified by his standing in the dance music community. 
However, Kill the Buzz’s ambitions see him looking far beyond the boundaries of dance music, with his increasingly vocal and more melodic tracks demonstrating a desire to create sounds that appeal to the vast and diverse audience of global music fans, alongside the more traditional club tracks he has already showcased proficiency in. Having played at some of the biggest venues and festivals in the world, including Tomorrowland (Both in Belgium and Brazil), Solaris Music Festival Canada, Las Vegas’s Hakkasan, Germany’s World Club Dome (World’s biggest club) and Hardwell’s Carnival at Ushuaia Ibiza – he’s cranking up the heat even further for 2016.
With dates in his diary that signal greatness as his global fanbase continues to swell, Kill The Buzz already has two exciting tours lined up to kick-off the year in style with a special Brasil ‘Carnival’ trek across a multitude of the country’s tropical provinces, followed shortly after by a 11-date Revealed North America Bus Tour, now the stuff of label legend, alongside label head Hardwell and peer Thomas Newson, Kill the Buzz now looks set to dominate the scene in the coming years and continue to bolt upwards into the stratosphere.
