Vital Radio 175 – Hour 1: Marc Miroir

| May 31st, 2012 | No Comments »

Berlin-based Marc Miroir, the German producer and Paso Music label founder is deeply rooted in the electronic music scene as a DJ since 1993. His vast experience as a DJ and his ability to create a journey from deep house through tech house, minimal, acid house towards techno, in his legendary long sets makes Miroir a force to be noted. Fans of releases on Level Non Zero, Bondage Music, Trapez and Great Stuff will, no doubt, be well aware of Marc Miroir’s dancefloor sensibility.

His natural affinity to the audience, a flawless (and seemingly effortless) mixing style (vinyl) and innate tune selection, have given him a huge fan-base around the world. Marc Miroir has played nearly every big event in Germany and Europe, events like Nature One, SonneMondSterne, Rave on Snow, Winterworld, Ruhr in Love, Thaibreak and many well-known clubs like Coocoon Club, Space, Florida 135 and Fabrik in Spain, besides his residencies at Weekend in Berlin and Airport in Würzburg.
Now, in 2012 it is time to experience his debut artist album…

Vital Radio 175 – Hour 2: Speedboats & Big Explosions

| May 31st, 2012 | No Comments »

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 174 – Hour 1: Boris the Spyder

| May 28th, 2012 | No Comments »

A true wizard of vinyl, Boris The Spyder has been a legend on the Russian clubbing scene for over two decades and here he demonstrates why he is such a force in driving the scene forward with his highly individual and original take on electronic dance music.

Deep, hypnotic, driving beats and layers of FX and twisted vocal samples are the order of the days on ‘Do You Remember’ as Boris keeps things innovative and exciting. ‘Flight To Moscow’ is a culture clash with its percussive, Latino-edged groove and airline pilot vocal snippets as it takes off to heavenly heights with hips swinging wildly. Finally, ‘It’s Time’ explores the swinging percussion theme further as it builds into an infectious dubbed out groove-a-thon.

Boris The Spyder currently works his vinyl magic in one of Moscow’s best clubs, Krysha Mira, as a resident DJ and music editor. His musical education started at secretive college parties he attended in the 1980s, dancing to Kraftwerk, Art of Noise, Jean-Michel Jarre and Depeche Mode. These early impressions influenced his musical taste a lot, Spyder’s philosophy is all about mixing and matching genres that may seem incompatible. This is a result of his diverse musical background and his interest in different styles. “I buy all sorts of records, from all sorts of labels… The most important thing is to be aware of everything that is happening: this is the only way to keep up with the general rhythm of the planet,” he comments. “I know how to make jazz connoisseurs appreciate a trance track, and I can play jazz that will get a trance crowd dancing.”

His legendary DJ sets are pure magic and this debut single release for RA:DAR is a snapshot of the experimentation and originality that make Boris The Spyder one of the most exciting musical forces in Russia today.

Vital Radio 174 – Hour 2: Electric Rescue

| May 28th, 2012 | No Comments »

Few French electronic music artists combine experience, avant-gardism and guaranteed success on dance floors as Electric Rescue (aka Antoine Husson) does. Having previously released tracks on Sven Vath’s Cocoon Recordings, Boys Noize Records, Sci + Tech, AFU limited, Communiqué, Subject and Sign Industry, he first unleashed his distinctive brand of ultra dynamic techno and sensuality on John Digweed’s Bedrock label at the tail end of 2011.

“Dope” (BEDDIGI13) was a huge tune for Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Secret Cinema, Guy J, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Dave Seaman, amongst a plethora of diverse DJs worldwide. Now Electric Rescue returns to Bedrock with the super-strong “Lili EP”, featuring three killer tunes.
“Lili” has all the ingredients to be a massive tune all summer long. Combining melodic techno attitude with a big room mentality, it has all the right ingredients. Already a huge tune in John Digweed’s sets, this is going to explode to anthem status worldwide over the coming months. With the equally exciting “Opened Hands” and “Science” revealing an experimental and diverse side to the Electric Rescue musical palette, this is a very exciting EP package indeed.

Electric Rescue’s reputation is already flying high in France through his residency at the Rex Club (Skryptöm parties) and organising the “Play” rave parties in Paris, Antoine Husson is most definitely a man to watch in 2012.

| May 11th, 2012 | No Comments »

With over ten years of releasing music and DJing across the world, DJ HAL has played to crowds of 20,000 plus, on beaches filled with movie stars at the Cannes Film Festival, and still manages to hold down a number of residencies in the UK.

HAL gets his name from the malfunctioning genius super computer in Stanley Kubrick’s movie “2001: A Space Odyssey”, a nickname he picked up after blowing the minds of his long-time compatriots from the West Coast – Hardkiss.

With his hugely diverse taste in music, he is able to play to all kinds of crowds, in all kinds of countries, in all kinds of weather, and is as comfortable playing alongside David Guetta as he is playing with Fat Boy Slim.  HAL is resident at one of the UK’s best underground clubs “Stealth”, where he plays alongside other residents Matt Tolfrey and Jo Jo de Freq.  He also makes regular guest appearances at “Spectrum”and “Gatecrasher”.

With his love of all things house and tech, he has entertained the Hollywood elite, with guest appearances at Pierre Cardin’s summerhouse, and the Brazilian football team’s beach celebrations. He has a reputation for filling a dance floor full of beautiful women and a groove that sends them wild.
He is not to be missed, so catch him if you can – anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
