Vital Radio 134 – Hour 1: DJ Endgame – Tribute to Nadia AliMahan Javadi | Thursday, March 24th, 2011 | No Comments »
This week’s Vital Radio Resident Mix salutes one of the most iconic voices in dance music, Nadia Ali
As with any great era of music, there are always a handful of tracks that can be considered genre defining. For dance music -from the late 90′s to the new millennium – there were only a select few tracks that caught fire around the world. However, there was one track in particular that emerged from the underground and caught everyone off guard. At first, people knew Iio’s “Rapture” by the catchy “la, la, la” chorus as sung by a beautiful voice.
As the track emerged from the underground and blew up in the mainstream, “Rapture” became a true tour de force. Remixes from Creamer & K, Deep Dish and Armin van Buuren would follow and the track sold into the millions. Still, at the heart of what made “Rapture” so beautiful was that voice. That voice – and voice of a new generation in house music – belongs to Nadia Ali.
