iEDM Radio Episode 143: Showtek

May 15th, 2017

Bio
Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen, aka Showtek, two brothers from Eindhoven have been making music for over a decade. Two rebels kicking against the shins of establishment, speaking a language the party crowd could believe in.?It was in 2012 when they truly exploded onto the global dance scene with the release of ‘Cannonball’. Childhood dreams became reality. Countless new fans joined. New productions got recognized and reached all corners of the planet, following the release of ‘Booyah’; a track that has Showtek written all over it, that it screamed it so loud that everyone sat up and listened, resulting in a top #5 spot in the UK singles chart and their first worldwide major hit! Momentum gaining, hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide have their eyes fixed on anything that is yet to come.

Get ready to join the tribe: Here is Showtek!

Wouter is the wiz kid perfectionist where ‘good is just never good enough’ and his will to succeed is paramount as he’s always looking for that ‘eureka’ moment. Pair that with his endless love for music, his extensive memory and lust for sports and you have one half of Showtek.?

Sjoerd, Wouter’s younger brother and partner in crime is often pointed out as the quiet one, yet with his volcanic character he can transform himself from a mild mannered fashion conscious gentleman into a fearless, crowd controlling MC and entertainer. He’s not one to follow a crowd and is always looking to push Showtek to a place where they will definitely stand out visually and sonically.

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.

Tracklist
Flatdisk & Gil Sanders Ft. Jacob Wellfair - Lost

Bio
The duo from Rome boasts many quality productions, with great success on the radio. Nazario Pelusi and Fabio Ranucci, the brilliance behind Promise Land, have been key players in the nation’s radio station with more than 40 productions in 10 years’ time, with half of them published worldwide.

In the last three years their musical creativity has overcome the European scene to gain success in the American market, where they have been linked to several established names in the industry.

Their talent is based on a particular sound consisting of sexy house mixed with a progressive groove vibe, which has reached the attention of renowned artists such as Tiesto, Angello, Axwell and Morillo, just to name a few.

With two tours in the States, as well as in Asia, Promise Land has taken part in several music festivals in Northern Europe, including Tomorrowland 2013, 2014 (V Session Stage). Some of their hottest tracks, to include “Vega”, “Burn“, “Why I still Love you” and “Memories will Fade” published with Spinnin, Size, Smash The House, MIxMash, Doorn and so on, have established them as one of the most admired Italian producers in the world, to the point where they have been the only Italian producers to play for the Creamfield festival last summer. The last couple of months have been priceless for Promise Land, with two successful tracks: “X-Press” (which was the most played track at Miami this year and still on top of the overall 1001tracklist chart), followed by “Skratchin” (already #1 in any sort of buzz chart and is among the most liked and supported tracks of the world).

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 110: Curbi

September 25th, 2016

BIO
As dance music tends to deliver younger bright stars every year, here's a prodigy the world surely will be talking about. 17-year old DJ/producer Curbi isn't even new to the game, he has already making tunes for a couple of years now. 
For sure, he's the talk of the town, early 2015, after signing a deal with Spinnin' Records and MusicAllStars management at the tender age of sixteen. But the signs were all there; a young lad from Essex, UK, making music in his bedroom, breaking borders as he created a house sound of his own. After Dutch tastemaker Oliver Heldens got hold of his track 'Discharge', it didn't take long for Curbi to get signed to Heldens' home label Spinnin' Records. 
The story is enchanting. 'Discharge' getting hundreds of thousands SoundCloud plays in mere days, getting picked up by the biggest DJs out there, remaining in the Top 10 of Beatport's main chart for 28 days (!) while the video is now counting over 2 million Youtube views and over 2.5 million SoundCloud plays. Not bad for a debut, the buzz around Curbi is only becoming larger by the day. 
After releasing his first mixtape early June, which scored 125,000 plays within a week, his second single 'Rubber' comes out on Spinnin’ Records. And surely, this is a worthy follow-up, a gem for the clubs, including Curbi's characteristic raw bass lines, adding tension with some deep synth chords creeping up on you during the breakdown. 
Pete Tong can't wait to premier it in his BBC radio show, while artists like Diplo, Oliver Heldens, Martin Solveig, David Guetta, Michael Calfan as well as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike give it full support. Genre crossing, you could say, which is exactly what Curbi does with his bass heavy house music - his sound hits a nerve everywhere. 
Summer 2015 also sees Curbi make his DJ debut, playing at Martin Solveig's event My House in Pacha Ibiza - not bad for a show debut. After that, the young Brit sets on doing more performances, while also venturing into some collabs, releasing the exciting club tune 'Hoohah' together with fellow Brit Fox Stevenson (a track getting picked up by jocks like Hardwell, Diplo and Showtek), followed in October by the release of 'Butterfly Effect', a collab with Dutch duo Bougenvilla. 
In short, Curbi is going through a rollercoaster ride in 2015, concluded with a personal 'thank you' to his fans when he releases the free downloadable 'Fraternité EP', including three full tracks by the youngster. 
2016 sees Curbi continue living up to all the promises. His first release '51' already meets widespread DJ support (including Hardwell, Calvin Harris, Oliver Heldens, R3hab and Porter Robinson) before it's officially released, reaching #2 on Beatport's Electro House chart. 
The follow-up to this, the mighty club tune 'Triple Six', Curbi's first release on Tiësto's label Musical Freedom, reaches the same height, getting support from the label boss as well as DJs Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Oliver Heldens, Calvin Harris and Martin Garrix. 
May 2016 also sees Curbi play his first show in his home country, performing at the DOORN Records Label Night in London, while the young Brit also gears up to play key events across Europe in summer 2016, including
 Creamfields, Amnesia Ibiza, Myseryland and Parookaville.
