iEDM Radio Episode 144: Fox Stevenson

May 21st, 2017

Bio
Unhindered by the constraints of a particular genre, Fox Stevenson pushes against imposed limitations.

Growing up in an artistic environment, with a musician, writer, and theater director for a father, Fox didn’t need much prodding to explore art from the inside-out. Laying down his tracks from scratch, he will also write and perform his own vocals. As a live musician, he is unafraid to pick up the guitar, drums, bass, or mix a live DJ set on stage.

The casual listener is immediately struck by the emotional pith and complex narrative structures of his songs. Most dance song lyrics are throwaway, but Fox’s tracks are genuine, space-creating oddities of a new generation. They are indebted to the old singer-songwriters of the past, while also challenging traditional expectations for beat-based, electronic music. In a world that often prefers we choose ‘one or the other’, Fox is one of the few willing to balance and create a free-flowing tri-force of dance, pop, and rock in his music.

A rare master of the live and digital, he is always experimenting and improving on his own structural artifices. “There is no best way,” he says, “that I would prefer to learn. When someone tries to tell me the ‘best’ way of compressing a snare, I prefer to learn it myself, because otherwise I would never try and go outside of that.” Keeping true to this spirit—to his own standards—he has been performing under the alias Fox Stevenson, reflecting his maturing growth as an artist, and culminating in the release of his first EP, Endless, with Firepower Records. Following his debut EP, Fox released songs on Spinnin’ Records, Circus Records, Firepower Records, and on his own record label Cloudhead Records. With six Beatport #1 Releases under his name, in 2016, Fox Stevenson partnered with powerful bass music taste-making label, Disciple, while continuing close ties with Spinnin’ Records for house/electro music.

Be on the lookout for Fox Stevenson as he gets his music out to a wider audience, ups the ante with world-tours, produces in more sophisticated studios, and hosts a plethora of collaborations with other artists—as he tries simply, in his own words, “to be better and better.”

iEDM Radio Episode 139: Flatdisk

April 16th, 2017

Bio
At the forefront of the international dance music community after manifesting their skill in production and alluring the eyes of veteran talents, Italy’s powerhouse duo Flatdisk is capturing both attention and momentum at the speed of sound. The duo’s formation came to be through Axel and Leonardo meeting through a common friend, a relationship with a common fervor for DJing that naturally evolved into a partnership. While being in touch with music since childhood, Axel’s upbringing involved performing in various bands with experience in playing guitar, bass and drums, while Leonardo’s background stemmed from studying violin and piano in the conservatory. Before joining forces, Axel worked his way from waiting tables at this parents’ restaurant to working in the TV industry alongside Leonardo who supported his parents’ bathhouse as a lifeguard while in university.

From humble beginnings in Milan, Axel and Leonardo took it upon themselves to create a dynamic music group that echoes their flair of sound production and passion to perform outside of the studio. The duo has aimed high and released prominent tracks on Universal Music, Revealed Recordings, Armada Music, Sosumi Records, Mixmash Records, and Flamingo Records and has received direct support from the likes of Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Steve Angello,, David Guetta, Don Diablo, Nicky Romero & beyond. Alongside the support by industry heavyweights, Axel and Leonardo came out on top of Revealed Recordings’ Beatport remix competition as Hardwell and his dedicated label team handpicked the Italian artists as the overall winners. The dynamic duo also power “Flatbeats Radio,” their own distinguished radio show with curated music weekly. The duo tagged themselves “Flatdisk” to emphasize how circularity exists in both life and music, similar to how a vinyl, CD, a disk, a spaceship or galaxy is circular and consistently evolving. Accomplished producers as they are remixers, Axel and Leonardo are masters of their unique and edgy art of creating euphoric and hard-hitting tracks that steer towards an electro edge.

iEDM Radio Episode 137: Kill The Buzz

April 2nd, 2017

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 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 rising artists like David Spekter and established names such as Manse, with whom he’s 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.

2016’s release schedule has continued to impress, with highlight tracks such as ‘All The Way Down’ with Tom Swoon on Revealed Recordings, ‘Galaxies’ alongside Katt Niall on Armada Trice and ‘Once Upon A Time’ with Harrison, Kill the Buzz’s craftsmanship and perfectionism in the studio has reached new heights with each release. 

However, his 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.

Kill the Buzz has also proven his domination on the tour front with events such as the Brasil ‘Carnival’ trek across a multitude of the country’s tropical provinces, as well as the momentous 11-date Revealed North America Bus Tour, now the stuff of label legend, alongside label head Hardwell and peer Thomas Newson. Kill the Buzz’s tour endeavours in 2016 have been equally as impressive, including shows such as Hardwell’s ‘Go Hardwell Or Go Home’ at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi, as well as the Hardwell Presents Revealed show at ADE, showcasing that Kill the Buzz continues to rise year on year and cement himself as one of the scene’s best talents.

iEDM Radio Episode 134: Yves V

March 12th, 2017

Bio
The enthusiasm that emanates from Belgian big-room artist Yves V continues to burn with the stellar magnitude of a supernova. His placing in the 2015 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs rankings marked him out as among the highest climbers, progressing on from his impressive debut position of 2014, as 2016 also saw Yves take a placing in the industry-famous poll for a third consecutive year.

Over the course of his career, Yves V has risen to international standing amongst his peers and global dance fans as a producer and DJ of high acclaim. Whilst his music now fills the playlists of the biggest DJs on the planet, gaining support from heavyweights including David Guetta, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren and Radio 1’s Danny Howard and Pete Tong, Yves’s name can also be found listed on billings for some of the most prestigious parties in the world.

From the studio, his music is vacuum-packed and released on the dancefloor by every major artist from Tiësto and Martin Garrix, to Steve Angello and Nicky Romero. Whilst his remix work encompasses A-list artists with a hip-hop flavour, including putting his stamp on the releases of Timbaland, Missy Elliott and Ginuwine, all of this has led to Yves’ own productions being released on a plethora of the best record labels in modern dance music including Armin Van Buuren’s Armada, Chuckie’s Dirty Dutch, Spinnin’ and Doorn Records.

His remix of ‘Insane Pressure’ was the release that broke Yves into the consciousness of his peers, since then growing his productions from underground bangers into major Beatport hits that includes ‘King Cobra’ (with Don Diablo), Top 10 Beatport smash ‘Octagon’, huge-hitter ‘Indigo’ and Spinnin’ heater ‘Unbroken’, as well as long-awaited ID’s ‘Joker’, ‘Daylight’ and Winter 2016’s huge free Armada release ‘Condor’ which sent fans and peers alike into overdrive. All of these head up Yves’s release total to an impressive nine, strong tracks already this year, supporting that his studio and production output is just as prolific and prominent to rival his extensive laps of the global live circuit.

iEDM Radio Episode 133: Dada Life

March 5th, 2017
Bio
With a sense of humor as big as their bass drops, Swedish duo Dada Life separated themselves from the EDM competition as they rose to fame during the 2010-2011 season.
 
Stockholm-based DJs/producers Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom came together in 2006, combining pop-leaning electro sounds (the "Life" bit) with absurd slogans -- "Bass don't cry," "Never bring your brain to a rave" -- and an over-the-top attitude that reflected the avant-garde art movement of the 1910s and '20s ("Dada"). Their single "The Great Fashonista Swindle" (2006, Pickadoll) parodied the Sex Pistols with its artwork, "The Great Smorgasbord" (2006, Southern Fried) introduced their love of processed meat, while "Do the Dada" (2007, Alphabet City) introduced their love of being self-referential, but all of them would fill the floor wherever slick electro was welcomed.
 
They went official in 2009 with their debut album Just Do the Dada, released by the Hussle label and featuring track titles like "Don't Snort the Yellow Snow" and "So You Wanna Be a Prankster?" A tour followed introducing Europe to their kinetic live show where inflatables flew through the crowd, while booking agents were forced to "Do the Dada" themselves, as the duo's tour rider stated that the backstage area must be filled with champagne and bananas, or the venue was punished with a tech-house set, all tracks being 188 BPM or below.
The year 2010 saw them touring with Tiësto, remixing everyone from Kylie Minogue to Chickenfoot, and collaborating with Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, and Tara McDonald for the hit, "Tomorrow (Give In to the Night)." In 2011 they headlined the Electric Daisy Festival in Los Angeles -- augmenting their set with a live marching band -- dropped the hit "Kick Out the Epic Motherf*&cker" single on their own So Much Dada label, and released their computer audio plug-in, the Sausage Fattener, allowing fellow laptop producers access to "sausage fat" bass.
 
Their new logo, two bananas forming a crest around a champagne bottle, debuted on their 2011 single "White Noise/Red Meat" and was featured on their sophomore album, 2012's The Rules of Dada. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

iEDM Radio Episode 132: Dannic

March 5th, 2017

Bio 
Dannic, the prodigious DJ and producer from Breda in the Netherlands – the hometown of Tiësto and Hardwell - is one of the fiercest acts to emerge from the latest generation of Dutch artists, cementing himself as a go-to name that delivers within the world of big-room, grooving house. Bursting onto the scene with a DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll placing 4 years in a row as of 2016, it’s confirmed to tastemakers that Dannic is a driving force within the scene. Dannic’s long-running stance behind the radio airwaves including his recently-rebranded Fonk Radio venture, also demonstrates a producer that is well and truly tapped into the most vital and important industry trends that appeal to his ever-expanding audience.

From his debut releases on world-class labels including Toolroom and a longstanding relationship with Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Dannic’s constant output of dance floor-ready bangers and groove-laden productions continues to excite across live shows globally, as well as productions that set alight the biggest mainstage sets. Seeing the Dannic sound grace the stages of Creamfields, Tomorrowland, Miami Music Week, plus many more alongside the launch of his own aforementioned, independent imprint - Fonk Recordings – Dannic has reflected his musical flair from every angle. From sourcing Demos, A&R’ing, design and production, the first release through Fonk Recordings (A collaboration between Dannic himself and HIIO titled ‘Funky Time’) was supported by industry stars Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Fedde Le Grand and W&W, as a swathe of Top 10 releases signified its status, with the label still only in its early stages, Fonk Recordings also recently hosted a sold-out showcase party of label family and friends during the Amsterdam Dance Event in October.

As over 350,000 music-lovers descended onto the city, all of these components proved the perfect catalyst to propel Dannic and the future of Fonk Recordings into its next exciting chapter. After a slew of impressive dates across Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, China and Singapore, Dannic also returned to Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa Ibiza, threw down sets at the World’s Largest Club Germany’s World Club Dome and played numerous, extensive North American headline dates. Dannic also performed a career stand-out set during the final ‘I Am Hardwell: United We Are’ show at Germany’s Hockenheim, marking the first show that DJs had ever performed at the racing track – but taking his sound to his fans live is one thing, immersing them wherever they are in the world is another. Launching Dannicated at the start of 2017 as a sleek fan portal, Dannic is giving devotees unprecedented access to high-class video content, track streaming and the latest and greatest news in his world, an ongoing project that will be adapted to meet modern and current trends, whilst also staying ahead of the curve. With his live performances gaining unmissable status, it is clear to see that his vast studio outputs appear just as prolific, making it undeniable that Dannic has moved beyond the tag of “one to watch”.

As his unrelenting schedule is interspersed with huge dates across the globe, his high-quality audio weaponry only adds another string to his bow including anthems ‘Viper’, ‘Golden Hearts’, ‘Feel Your Love’, ‘Light The Sky’ and his latest big-hitter on Maxximize with ‘Noise’, that also shot to #1 on the Beatport Big Room Chart; all of these factors creating a flawless cocktail as Dannic looks forward to a bigger and better 2017. Ready to champion Fonk Recordings and its talents no matter the artists’ experience or infancy, Dannic’s musical passion underpins his every move as a DJ for the people, weather this be his noteworthy peers passing praise or his millions of fans around the globe connecting both in the flesh and via a plethora of digital mediums, the scene waits with bated breath for the next move of this shining Breda producer…

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.
