ALBUMS, EDM NEWS, INTERVIEWS
[wp_ad_camp_2] You have been an influential DJ in the international scene for years now. Starting in 2000 and still going strong in 2012 with the release of your new album. What made you decide one day to want to make it in the electronic music scene and has it been a rather smooth ride or were there any hurdles you had to take on? I was into electronic music from the first moment I heard a synth. As time passed by, I was fascinated by trying understand how these sounds were made. I was learning many instruments whilst young but decided early on that my main passion was in electronic music way before I had chance to learn all about it. It has a combination of so many attributes all in one genre, energy, groove, emotion, production, tension, release, etc. How do you look back on your...

Jochen, you have been DJing for quite a while and enjoying success with massive productions like ‘Lost Connection’, ‘Humanoid’, the Energy2011 anthem ‘Classified’ and recently the Rank-1 and Sarah Bettens collab Wild and Perfect Day. If you had to pick one of your productions as your most favorite one. Which one would that be? And is there a thought behind it for it to be your favorite? Tough question, same as asking a parent which of his children he loves most;-)) But if I had to pick only one, I guess that would be Lost Connection, because that track really rocketeered my carreer. You are known to blend styles together ranging from trance to electro and progressive. How do you like the f

Davi: Rising Star in the Night Scene

EDM NEWS, REVIEWS
[wp_ad_camp_2] By Damen Smith-Draeko -- Davi of Perspectives Digital is a lucid dreamer. Although his Progressive House tracks take us on a wandering journey through id, ego, and libido, there is a fundamental grounding and stability to his productions. Tracking down any video on any of his performances or studio sessions was almost not happening. I was only able to procure one.  It is true what I’ve heard about him being “LA's best kept secret”. But oh! What a great secret! I was able to locate some of his tracks on Subtract Music: Lucid Dreaming Black Rock City I found these tracks danceable but oh so woefully short. It felt like just as the groove had committed my patting feet and nodding head to get into it, the thumping bass and wisps of chords were over and it was

Trance Guest Reviews By Allure

EDM NEWS, NEW RELEASES, REVIEWS, TRANCE
[wp_ad_camp_2] [wp_ad_camp_1] Since the release of ‘Kiss From The Past’ on June 13th 2011, the rumor mill on the internet forums has been in overdrive. Allure was back - and how! A full-on artist album, distributed in over 20 countries: no less than 14 pure unadulterated trance tracks featuring familiar former Allure vocalists like Christian Burns, JES and Emma Hewitt. Tiësto’s tweet “Listen to my @allurelive project which I am involved in” fueled the already piping hot discussions even more. As the title hints, the legendary producer Tiësto, who has been involved with the Allure project since its inception, wanted to say both goodbye and hand on the torch to the next generation. Now serving as the projects Executive Producer, Tiësto will be taking a backseat as the project moves to

Ché Armstrong Kills It With Assassin Release on Axon Recordings

EDM NEWS, NEW RELEASES, REVIEWS, TECH HOUSE
[wp_ad_camp_2] [wp_ad_camp_1] A new release from Axon from the hands of label manager/A&R, Ché Armstrong. Having previously released on labels such as Full Tilt and Neuroscience, his releases have seen the support of DJs including Dubfire, Paul Oakenfold and Chris Lake. Two tracks. 'Onda Fuerza' doesn't really move us. This release is all about the second track 'Assassin.' What can we say? Definitely a chunk of thumpin and bumpin tech house with some haunting chords and a rhythm section that has a bit more of a tough sound to it. For your convenience, we skipped the a-side Soundcloud link and let you listen to the good stuff that Assassin brings! Armstrong killed it on this one! ;-) Connect: http://www.axonrecordings.com [wp_ad_camp_5] [wp_ad_camp_4]

Youngster From France Hits Neuroscience Deep

EDM NEWS, NEW RELEASES, TRANCE
[wp_ad_camp_2] The young French producer Matt Fax returns to Neuroscience Deep with a new EP, just in time for the Summer festival season. At the age of 16, it's obvious that Matt has a great future ahead of him. He's been supported by DJs such as Above & Beyond, Jon O'Bir and Paul Oakenfold. Léa is a decent tune. It's a little heavy on side chaining use, but it does have a nice trancey and smooth feel to it. Sju has a bit less of the side chaining and nice fitting vocal excerpts. We definitely see why this kid is supported by jocks like Above & Beyond and Paul Oakenfold. Sju is our favorite of this package. 6/10 Connect: http://www.neurosciencerecordings.co.uk/label/508 [wp_ad_camp_5] [wp_ad_camp_4]

Mariano Favre: Progressive House Paragon

EDM NEWS, REVIEWS
[wp_ad_camp_2] By Damen Smith-Draeko -- Progressive House is EDM's emo family member. It's the music of dancing in angling boughs of sunshine in a damp room on the northern side of the house. Mariano Favre captures that sunshine with Universe (original mix). This was my first impression of him and of his talent, the first track of his where I actually sat and just listened as I began my research into this extraordinary young man . Universe (Original Mix) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWmTNKcBZOU So far, I liked him. I wanted to hear more. [wp_ad_camp_1] Having and wanting to discover more about this young man in his early twenties from Argentina, I went back in time a bit more and found the following production he and Fernando Ferreyra had compiled together.
