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.”

In an industry where any determined newbie can download music software and learn the basics from YouTube tutorials, 17-year-old Robbie Bergin -- better known by his DJ name, Throttle -- strives to distinguish himself by understanding the science behind the software. Many in music may know what equalization and compression are, but far fewer understand exactly how and why a tweak in a parameter can alter a mix. 
The Australian-born producer has dedicated weeknights and weekends to teaching himself to produce music since he was 14, finding a delicate balance between his studies and mixes. When Throttle graduates high school in November, however, he plans to put his studies on hold and focus on creating original tracks and remixes full time.  From his initial exposure to music when he picked up guitar at 12, Throttle recognized the importance of knowing his instrument. For him, it’s Ableton, Sylenth and Novation’s Launchpad.
With Launchpad, Throttle has carved out a name for himself on YouTube with his live mash-ups (“Inspire” and “What’s That Sound”). For each short video, he combines dozens of songs with the 64 programmable buttons. Though Throttle spends hundreds of hours preparing the set list beforehand, his meticulous finger movements are all in the moment.
Throttle is seeking to transform the idea of what it means to be a DJ. As he begins to add more live shows to his resume, which already includes Avicii’s recent Australian tour and the 2014 Future Music Festival Throttle is poised to soon become a household name for EDM fans around the world.

Bound in masks and bearing a fully customized twist on the sound of modern dance music, Stockholm-breakouts turned Billboard-chart toppers Cazzette have turned heads across the board. The creative union of Alexander Bjorklund and Sebastian Furrer, their reign under the At Night banner has given the industry landscape a new point of reference where breaking the rules and blurring the lines is concerned. Two years later, one album strong and still holding club floors and festival crowds across the continents, their pledge to stay clear of ‘that EDM bubble’ stands stronger than ever before for 2014.  After a chance online meeting the duo wasted little time making the pieces fit.  Bonded by a love for rave music and influences from across the musical spectrum, Alex’s structured perfectionism and Sebastian’s crazy creative habits would bring them together as one of the most coherent units to emerge from Sweden’s thriving dance community. By the time Ash Pournouri tuned into their work, the duo had already championed the ‘dubhouse’ sound – one that the global industry would quickly tune into and lap up like wildfire. Never ones to get hooked up on one sound, the duo passed on gracefully, taking with them a blatant disregard for genre rulebooks and the goal of being poster boys to the expanding boundaries of modern dance music.  Of all the early studio landmarks to bless their two-year streak, however, debut album Eject served up a number of career land marks. As the first dance album to be exclusively released through Spotify, lead single “Beam Me Up” would seal the duo as the first to ever top the Billboard charts with a single without formal label backing. It took just 14-tracks for Cazzette to champion both the album platform and the streaming market alike, setting a precedent once thought impossible to aspiring dance artists with album aspirations across the globe.  But where Cazzette is concerned, the future is the only direction worth dwelling on. At the outset of 2014, they’ve found what they want to represent and it sure isn’t limited to 128 BPM. Crossing genre conventions and building on their legacy with a focus on songs that they love, ‘Heroes’ signals the changing tides ahead, putting music with feeling at

the top of their agenda. Adding collaborations alongside both Shermanology and The High to the equation, the new music will be met with brand news masks for the global tour duties ahead. A bond of Swedish engineering and their own vivid imaginations, the focus on both live and studio work highlights yet another of the beauties of Cazzette. When the music evolves, the experience follows-suit. Made in Sweden, exported globally and controlled byno one genre’s playbook, Cazzette has truly taken control of their place in dance music’sexciting forward movements for 2014.
