Vital Radio 147 – Hour 2: Morgan Page

| September 8th, 2011 | No Comments »

With over 130 remixes to his name, Morgan Page has earned a solid reputation for transferring insatiable pop energy to the dance floor in the form of banging, progressive house tracks.

The Pete York cover “Strange Condition,” a simple, spatial arrangement that highlights Page’s ability let his vocalists control the direction of a song, and not be driven towards emotional peaks and valleys by just synths and bass. Page uses a similarly subtle approach on “Tell Me Why,” featuring the velveteen vocals of Télépopmusik’s Angela McCluskey.

Elsewhere, Page enlists the talents of Matt Alber on “Agnus Dei” and Gabriel & Dresden alum Jan Burton on “Traces Remain” and the raucous “I’ve Had Friends.” On the moody “In The Dark,” Page himself takes a turn on the mic at the urging of another G&D contributor, Molly Bancroft, who was initially tapped to provide the vocals. For Page, it was simply the next logical progression in his maturation as a producer.

We catch up with Morgan Page, as he sets up the Vital Radio Guestmix.

Vital Radio 139 – Hour 2: Morgan Page (With Interview)

| May 23rd, 2011 | No Comments »

With over 110 remixes to his name—including tracks by Madonna (“Miles Away”), Katy Perry (“I Kissed A Girl”), Tegan & Sara (“Back In Your Head”), and La Roux (“Bulletproof”)—Morgan Page has earned a solid reputation for transferring insatiable pop energy to the dance floor in the form of banging, progressive house tracks. High ranking spots on iTunes’ dance chart, Beatport’s progressive chart, and Billboard’s club charts affirmed his salability, while an ’09 Grammy nomination for Deadmau5’s remix of Page’s “The Longest Road” simultaneously bolstered his underground cred while spotlighting his skills as a songwriter.

Having long jettisoned his status as an up-and-comer, Page is ready to step into the next phase of his career, firmly joining the ranks of established “triple threat” DJs, producers, and remixers like Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz.

Morgan Page lays down some fresh tunes, and hangs around to chat about life, music and everything.

1. Afrojack & Tocadisco – “Tequila Sunrise”
2. Dadalife – “White Noise Red Meat”
3. Francesco Diaz & Young Rebels – “Hamburg”
4. Tune Brothers – “Groovy Baby” (Hard Rock Rock Sofa Remix)
5. Michael Woods – “First Aid”
6. Flo-Rida – “Who Dat Girl” (Deniz Koyu Remix)
7. Albin Myers – “Wobble”
8. Dabruck & Klein vs. Gregori Klosman – “Freak”
9. Albin Myers – “There 4 You” (Don Palm & Johan Wedel Remix)
10. Soundshaperz – “Cocaine”
11. Porter Robinson – “The Wildcat” (Lazy Rich Remix)
12. Nadia Ali – “Fantasy” (Morgan Page Remix)

Perhaps not the most insightful, or least hypocritical, interview with Armin to date but still worth sharing. Shows like A State of Trance and Trance Around The World have helped to make trance, and dance music in general, the phenomenon it is today.
