iEDM Radio Episode 144: Fox Stevenson

May 21st, 2017

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.”

The New Year has provided significant opportunities for Golf Clap’s members Hugh Cleal and Bryan Jones. They’ve recently been booked for two of the largest music festivals in the state, Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit and Electric Forest in Rothbury. They were recently voted “Best Electronic Artist in Detroit” by the readers of Real Detroit Weekly for their Best of 2014 issue. They had a very successful new single on Grant Nelson’s Freeze Dried label, and the club where they throw their events, The Grasshopper Underground, was just voted “Best House Music Venue” for the second year in a row.

Golf Clap is not only known for their impressive discography and crowd pleasing dj sets, but also for their unpredictable and incredibly entertaining antics. Over the past year, they have been invited to play all over the country alongside industry giants, as both headline and auxiliary entertainers. In addition, they played more than 150 shows in 2013, and are already boasting a schedule replete with coast-to-coast bookings for the 2014-year. In addition to their headline events, Hugh and Bryan have shared the stage with a veritable who’s who of veterans and rising-stars alike. Their guest mixes for Rinse FM, Ministry Of Sound, and Pulse Radio have caught the ears of discerning listeners around the world. 

Their fresh approach, to what Hugh and Bryan refer to as “peak-hour deep house,” has made them a crowd favorite from city to city. They’ve been performing electrifying back to back dj sets three to seven days a week ever since their debut release, Another Way, shot straight to the number one position on Traxsource, and finished the year in the Top 10 singles of 2013. Their hard work and dedication continues to show as they prepare a very busy touring and release schedule for the year and are launching their new label, Country Club Disco. Golf Clap will continue to uphold their strong presence in the dance music community this year, forever pushing the music they love to the masses.

If techno is the universal language then New Jersey native, Ryan Provost is surely multilingual. His mesmerizing, floor moving rhythms have allowed him to speak to his peers through the creativity in his productions, while making it an obligation to capture the attention of audiences all over the world.  Music has always been a priority in Provost's life, starting at the young age of 13 as a drummer. By the time he turned 18 he found himself becoming involved more heavily in the electronic music scene, attending and gaining a huge interest in
afterhours. Soon enough he found himself taking things to the next level, producing his first track in 2013, while getting his first record deal in early 2014. Anyone who
witnesses him producing music and gracing the decks can attest to this, Provost can turn a careful observer into a dancer through the raw emotion in his music. Music is a means of connectivity, intimacy, communication and he has skillfully and globally been able to share this.  In early 2014 Provost found himself more in studio time rather than the frequent
night out, molding a mind that would gain international attention and support by names like NYC legend Danny Tenaglia and Defected: In The House resident Sam
Divine. Provost is now signed to labels 18-09 and Housewax Records to name a few, he is producing and remixing full force, while hammering out new material he so brilliantly tends to do. His unique signature style that’s driven by a relentless, deep, hypnotic, and techy groove is sure to leave you awestruck. He credits his latest sound to his most current influences: Matt Sassari, D-Unity, Peter Bailey, Carlo Lio and Alex Mine to name a few.

Producers and DJ´s without borders (neither physical nor musical), whose spectrum of sound is limitless. From nu-disco and fancy house to more adventurous and explosive sounds like EDM, Trap, Moombahton, playing with electro-rock as well as beats considered to be more mainstream.

Their recording studio skills are about to be exposed with the highly anticipated “Como Back to Me” (featuring BEAROID). A fascinating vocal clubbing pop song to be released on September, 23rd in an EP completed with banging remixes by Moliner, Rubik Dude and Taak. The icing for this 2014 will be the official music video for the original track directed by Mauri D. Galiano.

The duo shares their abilities showing off on stages throughout the world. In the last four years you could find them on Dcode, SOS 4.8 Arenal Sound, 101 Sun Fest, Sonorama or Pop UP. They also played in Mexico, Holland, Germany and in majority of the best Spanish clubs. With the motto “vale-tudo” wherever they go and with a clearly defined role to play: to make us enjoy, bounce and sweat!
