IEDM Radio Episode 232: Richard Durand

March 10th, 2019

Richard Durand is an artist who has established himself in the top tier of trance for over a decade. Since first breaking into the scene with remixes for Tiësto back in 2007, Richard has gone on to fulfill his potential and more.

In the following years, Durand hit the DJ Mag Top 100 on five occasions, released four critically acclaimed albums, mixed six editions of the 'In Search Of Sunrise' compilation series, and performed on many of the world's biggest stages including A State Of Trance, Dreamstate, Trance Energy, Sensation, Sunburn, Mayday, Untold, Godskitchen, Luminosity, Avalon, Zouk and Ministry Of Sound.

At the back end of 2018, Richard raised the bar once again. The November release of his hotly-anticipated fourth album 'The Air We Breathe' on Black Hole Recordings was greeted with overwhelming praise from fans and dance press alike, and spawned several hit singles including 'Skies Above', 'Aida' and 'Vortex' (with Marco V).

The most notable single from the album, and for Richard in 2018, was undoubtedly 'The Air I Breathe'. Initially released as an instrumental, the track was then given a second lease of life with Christina Novelli brought on board to deliver vocals. Her performance elevated the track from an underground anthem into a runaway mainstream success. The status of the track was fixed in dance music history with the prestigious 'ASOT Tune Of The Year' award following a worldwide poll from millions of listeners on Armin van Buuren's weekly radio show.

Richard continues to run his own 'Reloaded' label for hard-edged releases from himself and industry peers, while also been making appearances on notable labels such as Outburst, Degenerate, Afterdark, and Armada Music. His remix for Armin van Buuren’s 'Wild Wild Son' was awarded 'ASOT Tune Of The Week' on Episode 899. Richard Durand and his Reloaded brand are bringing a musical revolution to the scene in 2019! ------------------ Tracklist: 1. Richard Durand, Mike Schmid - Kill The Fear 2.

IEDM Radio Episode 231: Zonderling

March 3rd, 2019

In a world where genres and rule books aren’t part of the plan, you’ll find the Dutch duo Zonderling, comprised of producer Martijn van Sonderen and DJ Jaap de Vries. Freaky sounds by a headstrong duo working on musical impulses has led to a streak of powerful releases with a character of their own.

Their sound could be described as unusual but undoubtedly captivating. Whether it's Don Diablo's edit of ‘Tunnel Vision’, numerous remixes for the likes of Martin Garrix, Zedd and Sam Feldt, the housy collaboration ‘Lee’ with MOGUAI on Oliver Heldens' Heldeep Records, or their recent collaboration with Belgian producer Lost Frequencies on the hit single ‘Crazy’ (over 95 million Spotify plays at time of writing), Zonderling is getting support from every angle.

On the big stage, their name shines in bright lights everywhere from Tomorrowland and EDC Orlando to World Club Dome and Sziget. Throw in appearances at venues like Ushuaïa Ibiza, New Gas City in Montreal and Bootshaus in Germany, and Zonderling might be rightly punching into the big league in the coming year! ------------------ Tracklist: 1.
