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.
