“Everything he [Protoculture] touches turns to musical gold” - Armin van Buuren, A State of Trance

Only a few South African producers enjoy the success that DJ and producer Nate Raubenheimer, better known to most as Protoculture, has had over the last 12 years. Hailed by many distinguished peers as his home country’s largest dance music export, he has left his mark on the international dance scene with his trademark blend of melodic and emotionally charged compositions and sets.

Sucked into the art of music production at a young age, Nate made the leap to pursue a music career professionally after completing his studies in audio engineering at age 20. Immediately taking the international psy-trance scene by storm, his international debut performance came at the United Kingdom’s famed Glastonbury Festival. With the release of his first album “Refractions” and follow up “Circadians”, a slew of international performances ensued, seeing Nate travel to all corners of the globe. From London to Tokyo, Sao Paulo to Moscow, Protoculture is a staple at psy-trance festivals around the globe, most notably at Glade, Universo Parallello, Earthcore Global Carnival, and Ozora. ------------------ 1.

IEDM Radio Episode 208: Joe Stone

September 23rd, 2018

Joe Stone is the alter ego of Dutch DJ Maurice Oude Booyink, who's been working as a DJ and producer for many years. He’s making waves with a full fledged, contemporary house sound with a 90’s-style twist. But while the name is new to the scene, his musical background speaks volumes, ranging from classical music training to producing timeless house tunes and remixes for some of the biggest names in electronic music.

Joe Stone's first single, 'The Party (This Is How We Do It)’, gained lots of attention in the summer of 2015. It repackaged the infamous Montell Jordan hit it in a 21st century house groove, featuring the original vocals approved by Jordan himself. In the meantime, Stone was added to festival lineups all over the world, including Tomorrowland, Dancevalley, Judgement Ibiza, Hed Kandi and Sunrise Festival to name a few.

His extensive touring schedule led to inspiration for new masterpieces, such as ‘Make Love’ and ‘Let’s Go Together’, which soon led to a stream of remix requests. Joe Stone remixed tracks for Kriss Kross Amsterdam, Quintino, Felix Jaehn, EDX, R3hab, and Lost Frequencies, as well as David Guetta & Afrojack’s ‘Dirty Sexy Money’.

His release with Cr3on, ‘Is It Really Love’, was the #1 trending track on 1001 Tracklists and has been streamed more than 12 million times on Spotify. This has resulted in over 1.7 million monthly listeners and an ever-expanding listener base for his monthly ‘Sound Of Stone’ radio show. Joe Stone is definitely the one to watch in 2018 and beyond! ------------------ Tracklist: 1. Jolyon Petc, Komes - Ain’t Too Proud To Beg [Benny Jay Remix] 2.

IEDM Radio Episode 207: Mason

September 16th, 2018

There’s nothing predictable about this refreshing Dutchman DJ/producer. Mason continues to be a musician who refuses to draw inspiration from malleable and fast-changing trends around him. His new single, Stop Start Slow Fast, is a perfect example of Mason exploring any musical direction he deems necessary, and he absolutely nails it.

After a childhood surrounded by an actress mother, sculptor father, and a sister on the stage, it’s no wonder Mason carved out his own route to electronic musical madness. Mason’s studio creations boast equal parts groove, melody and complete eccentricity – no matter what the genre. Having expressed enjoyment in music to challenge, Mason creates an unusual balance of utterly credible house bangers, alongside some more commercially viable radio hits. Known for his breakout single Exceeder back in 2007, it’s clear to see how Mason’s music has developed after twenty years working on his craft. Over that time, he’s collaborated with the likes of Stefflon Don, Roisin Murphy, Run DMC, Sway, Jocelyn Brown and Kurtis Blow. ------------------ Tracklist: 1. Funboys - Soul Scarred 2. Bruno Furlan - 0009 3. Malikk - Trouble So Hard 4. Biscits - Back To Church 5. Mason - Dance Shake Move [Tim Baresko Remix] 6. Moguai - Home 7. Hegemon - Help Me (feat.

IEDM Radio Episode 205: Chicane

September 2nd, 2018

Since establishing himself in 1997 with the seminal ‘Far From The Maddening Crowds’, to his breakout album ‘Behind The Sun’ (2000), to his second-gen LPs ‘Somersault’ (2007) and ‘Giants’ (2010), Nick Bracegirdle has fashioned a flawless album discography filled with instant classics.

Born in Chalfont St Giles, England, Bracegirdle was quickly acknowledged and applauded for supplying the soundtrack to the seminal Ibiza period, becoming the aural backdrop to the Ibiza of sunsets and sunrises.

There are, however, two sides to Chicane: his records and his live performance. Over the last fifteen years the standard and excitement of Chicane shows has grown, and the shows permeate the very essence of what Chicane is all about: people sharing a unifying moment through music, no matter what age or culture they belong to.

Chicane, somewhat confusingly for those early dance fans, is a band. They have played festivals like Glastonbury and V Festival, as well as countless gatherings around the globe and on every continent. They’ve powered out hits such as Offshore, Saltwater, Don't Give Up, Stoned In Love, Poppiholla, juxtaposing them with more esoteric and loved tracks from six studio albums and newer live favorites. ------------------ Tracklist: 1. Chicane - A Love That’s Hard To Find 2. Hello Machines - Air 3. Nirvana - Chicane 4. Bent - Always 5. David Hohme - Fear Less 6. Chicane - Ten Deep 7.

iEDM Radio Episode 204: Third Party

August 26th, 2018

Building a loyal and fanatical fan base through their distinct progressive sound, few acts in the electronic dance music scene can command the same level of respect and attention as British duo Third Party.

Made up of Jonnie Macaire and Harry Bass, the producers are best known for their incredible live productions and euphoric tracks. Their most recent studio album ‘HOPE’ is widely regarded as one of the finest dance productions of recent generations, and has accumulated over 50 million streams worldwide. Starting their careers making remixes for the likes of Tiësto and Swedish House Mafia, the latter artist soon invited the Essex duo to play at their iconic Masquerade Motel show in Miami, with a further performance at their “One Night Only” event at Alexandra Palace.

The eclectic pair are influenced by those timeless 90’s vocal twists and 80’s elements found in tracks like ‘Everyday of My Life’ and ‘Without You’, with the duo citing Eric Prydz as a key inspiration in their fluid, genre-crossing sound. ------------------ Tracklist: 1.

IEDM Radio Episode 203: FTampa

August 19th, 2018

FTampa (Felipe Ramos) showcases his unique sound in his original melodies and songs, putting pop music into a exquisite place that only he can. His first two singles in 2017, “Glowing” and “Love Is All We Need”, garnered over 10 million streams on Spotify, and their official music videos have over 3 million views on YouTube. His hit “Our Way” has 17 million+ streams on digital platforms, and “Stay” (feat. Amanda Wilson) has over 7 million streams. The Los Angeles-based artist has performed at Rock In Rio Las Vegas, Tomorrowland Brazil, Tomorrowland Belgium (as the first Brazilian in history to perform on the main stage), Lollapalooza Brazil, Burning Man, and many other music festivals around the world.

Raised by a single mother and orphaned at the age of six, Ramos was adopted by his grandparents and aunt and lived by modest means. Just before his death, Felipe’s grandfather gifted him a piano, which ended up changing his life. He started his music career in a rock band with initial successes, but the eventual failure of the band led him to swear he would never pursue music again. In 2011, his path shifted when he discovered the world of electronic music. He found new inspiration in the sounds he heard and subsequently set up a recording studio in his home. Inside those four walls, FTampa was born. ------------------ Check out FTampa: ------------------ Listen to more exclusive mixes:

IEDM Radio Episode 202: Dirty Ducks

August 11th, 2018

The Dirty Ducks project was born in 2011, a collaboration featuring two friends from Modena, Italy. Alex Ratti and Federico Gualdi, always united by their passion for DJing and music production, started working together on new tracks that drew the attention of many important DJs and producers. One of their first singles, “Titan”, was released on well-known Italian label Time Records and played live for the first time by Michael Calfan in his first appearance on the Tomorrowland main stage. In the meantime, they remained hard at work, improving their production and DJ skills by playing in some of the most famous clubs in Italy. Their DJ sets are dynamic and energetic, ranging between different musical genres while maintaining coherence.

In 2014, they were chosen to remix the iconic track "Space" by Micha Moor, and their track was released on Scream and Shout to lots of support and positive feedback. In 2015, they released an "unofficial" remix of Major Lazer's hit "Lean On”, teaming up with Italian producers Merk & Kremont. It quickly became one of the most lauded remixes in the genre, played and supported by Diplo himself.

The turning point for Dirty Ducks came in 2017, when Dutch superstar Afrojack asked them to officially remix his platinum single "Used To Have It All". They also signed their collaboration with the Dutch DJ Charlie Ray "Karma" to his label Wall Recordings, reaching the Beatport Electro House Top 10 in less than a week. Their constant will to prove themselves, as well as their commitment and determination to make quality music, makes Dirty Ducks one of the most promising projects in the EDM world. ------------------ Tracklist: 1.
