Vital Radio 179 – Hour 1: Tim Penner

| August 15th, 2012 | No Comments »

Tim Penner has been working in electronic music for over a decade. His experience has taken him on a journey through every beautiful corner of the industry. His productions have graced the track lists of the world’s leading artists and have geared him up towards a huge year in 2012. Tim seamlessly blends ideas, twists sound, and manipulates frequencies to create a mind bending style that stems from Techno, House, and Trance. To classify his work into a specific genre can be a challenge.

Tim’s track, “Misuto” was picked up by Arnej Music in September 2011 for a massive global compilation CD called “Musical Evolution”. This opportunity unleashed a whirlwind of originals and remixes in 2011. Since this release, Tim has signed on with Stripped Recordings, Replug, Blockhead Records, Fine Grind, and Hyped Music to name just a few. This explosion of music will hit shelves from November 2011 and into the new year.

Tim says: “We’re in an era beyond simply mixing songs. We’re venturing into a brand new world of true audio manipulation. Music is made of layers of frequencies that create the soundtrack to our lives. If you can harness this concept, you can innovate rather than imitate.”

| July 21st, 2012 | No Comments »

Still young but already a member of the famous Kompakt label team, from Cologne, Maxime Dangles is considered as one of the main leader of the French electronic “avant- garde” scene.

Born in 1985, Maxime discovered very young, at 15, the world of nightclubbing. He quickly became a very good dj but he also learnt how to create his own music on computer programs.

In 2004, he started to work on remixes and edits projects before developing his own musical imprint.
In 2006, he decided to send some of his works to the famous label Kompakt. The answer came back to Maxime a few days later: his first EP, called « Noémie » was going to be released in September on Speicher!
Since then he has been releasing various EP’s, on labels such as Speicher, K2, Scandium, etc. In 2009, he joined the Skryptöm team and signed a remix for Scan X, along with Laurent Garnier and Julian Jewel.

Very hard worker, innovative and creative artist, founder of 2 new projects (WIP with Kony & Danzca with Paul Nazca), developing big live shows, Maxime’s passion, colour and personnal influences will necessary make him rising up in the International electronic scene.



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.

| 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.

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.
