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...

Me: There’s only a select few US...

Bloodletting: An Exclusive Sit Down with Dabin on ‘Bloodless’

Dabin has been steadily cranking out hits off of Kannibalen Records for quite some time now. His past works have been heavily influenced by Anime, as well as 8-bit sounds of yesteryear. Recently though Dabin has been in the studio pouring his heart and soul into his EP, ‘Bloodless’. The album is powerful. There is no better way to explain what was accomplished through the tracks that came together to make this Dabin’s best effort yet. The amount of sounds that are explored throughout the piece is staggering, it seems like...

As luck would have it, I managed to interview these three regarding all manner of their origins, outlook and influences into their sound and formation. After accepting an...

Exclusive Interview with Danny Avila

This past Saturday, I had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing Danny Avila Danny Avila before his set at Webster Hall in New York City. Rocking black ripped skinny jeans and black tank, Danny greeted me with a smile and hug before we began our Q&A. Just arriving from Miami, Danny was pumped to perform once again in NYC. Last time I was here I played at Electric Zoo and it was amazing. I especially like Webster Hall, I played here twice already and the shows were sold out. I love New York and I think honestly New York is my favorite...
