Their brand of thrilling electro house is bound to turn heads over the coming months – and you can find out a little more about them in our chat, below. How would you describe your sound to someone is yet to hear the sound of Duvoh? Very melodic, and emotional; but also with a touch of aggressive synths.

A State of Hardstyle Dance Music: Interview with Audiofreq

Unlike mainstream electronic music, one brand of dance hasn’t felt the effects of an abrupt propulsion into the spotlight; hardstyle. Although the harder styles of electronica haven’t yet hit American radio waves, the scene is most definitely accelerating in that direction. Australian hardstyle pioneer, Audiofreq, let me interrupt his dinner a few weeks ago to discuss the state of hardstyle in the United States. After talking about the culture, the music, and the scene for a better part of an hour, we were able to come to one,...

Shakedown The Buzz: An Exclusive Interview With New World Sound

The Australian duo of Tyrone James and Jesse Taylor, AKA New World Sound, have been making music since 2011.  Having been trained in classical music, Jesse and Tyrone used their roots in music as they found electronic dance music as it was becoming big in Australia. “We played classical music because of our parents.  They thought we should be involved in it and then we got into Electronic Music. It started out as a hobby. We used to have to use cassette players and have to “old school DJ.”  While Jesse learned the piano and trumpet,...

Reflecting on 2 Years of EDM: Interview with Showtek

“We didn’t plan to be successful. We just made music that we thought was cool in an already existing genre. We didn’t plan it. We didn’t do it to get famous or because we thought it would really work. We did it because we loved it, and it worked.” At Electric Zoo, 2013, Showtek celebrated a year milestone since their single “Cannonball” was first played live. It doesn’t feel like just 2 years ago the duo made the shift from hardstyle to EDM. Some of us remember the days of F The System and Breakbeat...

Going FULL ON with Ferry Corsten: Interview

For those who aren’t familiar with Ferry Corsten’s “Full On” performances I’ll start with a bit of Ferry history. 2007 was a big year for one of trance music’s most iconic producers. In addition to the launch of his international radio show “Corsten’s Countdown”, he also inaugurated “Full On” in Rotterdam: “When FULL ON first started, I would play 8 hours and have everyone come on stage and play with me; back to back.” “I always look for the guys who would fit...

An Exclusive Interview with Elephante

Elephante is a special kind of producer. His rise has been unlike that of most, primarily because of how quickly it happened. What Elephante did this year is very similar to what The Chainsmokers did last year. His growth has been tremendous. Every release is quality and in no time at all accumulates plays well into the six digits. His combination of progressive, electro, and weird robot noises has given him a unique sound – one that sets him apart from others. Another thing about him is that he has a good sense of humor and is fun to...

Exclusive Interview with Bassanova

Couple of days ago, I wrote an article about Bassanovas remix of “Blame” by Calvin Harris. The feedback both on here and Soundcloud was extraordinary. It suprised me how massively the word about Bassanova spread, and so I took my chances to ask him couple of questions. Great news is, he dropped a new song “City Lights” as well as a remix of “When the Beat Drops Out” and so he is busy! Without further ado,here is what Bassnova had to say to questions I threw at him. Your remix of “Blame” by...

Dodge & Fuski and Barely Alive on The Alliance Tour and more

EDM Sauce recently had the opportunity to chat with Rob from Dodge & Fuski and Willie from Barely Alive, who are both on the road this month on The Alliance Tour.  UKF Dubstep recently premiered their new collab, Poison, which just yesterday made it to the #1 spot on Beatport’s Dubstep chart. We talked about their current tour and future plans, and the guys were kind enough to share some thoughts about major influences, being compared to Skrillex, and overseas differences in EDM… plus more! Me: There’s only a select few US...
