Vital Radio 166 – Hour 1: Speedboats & Big Explosions

| February 22nd, 2012 | 1 Comment »

Juan Sanchez and The Bullet team up to form “Speedboats and Big Explosions”. These retro cops bring together the funk and the tech to create a sound that is as awesome as their glorious moustaches.  Their first single “Hazel Eyes” features the unmistakable vocals of Marcie and is signed to System Recordings in NYC. With the first track under their belt, the duo kept busy in the studio and on the decks.

Inspired by the soulful vocals of Andrew Roachford, SBBE reworked Dr Rubberfunk’s “Trouble Woman” into an energy-charged house bomb, which is featured alongside house superstars Gramophonedzie, Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grand, Chocolate Puma Remix and Prok & Fitch on the ‘Jalepeno House Vol. 2′ compilation.

Since then, their original tracks ‘In The Cinema’, ‘Bump It’, ‘Strange Justice’ and ‘Porn Stache’ have been released on South American house label Muzik X Press. Their delicious Martini of funk, tech and soul is shaken, not stirred, and is always setting the right mood for the party.

Vital Radio 164 – Hour 1: Mumbai Science

| February 11th, 2012 | No Comments »

If there is one thing you can’t say, its that Maarten Elen and Jonas Kiesekoms – aka Mumbai Science – have a lack of imagination. At only 24, the duo already has a decade worth of creative experimenting behind them, from making politically incorrect rock music to writing absurd theatrical plays. However, it was only in 2010 that their musical passion culminated into the indie-electro vibes of ‘Mumbai Science’, creating a sound that melts contemporary electro-synths with a vintage techno feel.

In 2010, the duo signed on with the notorious Lektroluv Records, releasing four original EP’s (Woof EP, Ancova EP, Gold EP and Lotus EP). Club hits like ‘Ancova’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Lotus’ got picked up by artists around the globe (2 many dj’s, Crookers, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Tiga and beyond).  This put Mumbai Science on the worlds EDM radar. Apart from their original work, Mumbai Science is also building an impressive list of remixes. To date, the duo has been behind remixes for Mixhell (Boysnoize Records), Goose (!K7), Crookers (Southern Fried), Alex Gopher (Go 4 Music), Shameboy (East), Highbloo (Lektroluv) and Jaymo & Andy George (Moda Music).


Vital Radio 164 – Hour 2: Richie G

| February 11th, 2012 | No Comments »

Richie G is a prodigiously talented eighteen-year-old electronic music producer and DJ from Montreal, Canada, who you should already have on your music radar having released his debut, self-produced, “Baum” EP on Haçienda Records last year and his previous remixes for Traum and, not forgetting, Luis Junior’s “BG” (Bed91) when he was only fifteen!

He has received great support from within the Montreal scene and from this springboard has also pricked up the ears of major names such as John Digweed, Sasha, James Zabiela and Hernan Cattaneo (who along with Jesper Dahlback also remixed “Vorbendacht” from the “Baum” EP).

“Eterna” and “But Her Fly” display all the hallmarks of the supremely sumptuous techno-edged electronic music that Richie G produces. Euphoric, beautiful, highly individual and inventive in equal measures, his depth of musical knowledge and finely honed production skills belie his young age. Bedrock brings you two superb tracks from one of the hottest talents around in 2012.
