Vital Radio 117 – Hour 2: Sander Van Doorn

| November 23rd, 2010 | No Comments »

First there were Heineken and Edam, then came Sander van Doorn. The Dutch musical genius may not be as mature as his predecessors but he’s certainly made as much of an impact in his comparatively short career, not only in The Netherlands but also across the world.

Having made his debut in the world renowned DJ Mag Top 100 at 32 in 2006, before climbing 19 places to No.13 in 2008’s poll; sandwiched between Carl Cox and Paul Oakenfold, the fast rise of Sander van Doorn is a testament to his raw talent and dedication. In just seven years he’s clocked up more dance floor destroyers, sell out gigs and awards than most artists do in a lifetime… and his journey is still in its infancy.

It was Sander’s DJing experiences around the world that prompted him to start up ‘Dusk Till Doorn’, taking clubbing to the next level, offering the ultimate Sander van Doorn experience.. Having already wowed crowds at the launch in May at The Gallery, Ministry of Sound, London and in Ibiza in June, Sander’s musical and visual journey continues to pleasure crowds around the globe.

Friday Flashback: ATB – Movin’ Melodies

| October 15th, 2010 | No Comments »

He’s been a dance music icon since his first album “Movin’ Melodies” hit in 1999.  Even if you’re laughing at this post now, in the trendy year of 2010, I guarantee that when you hear the 10 iconic notes of the melody in 9PM (Till I Come) [lol - you just counted on your fingers!] you know who the producer is. We’re talking, of course, about the legendary ATB.

“Dance”, André Tanneberger’s first single as Sequential One, was finally released in February 1993 and this was followed by other, Techno-oriented releases. André was slowly setting up his own little studio.

André, however, did not make his real breakthrough until “9 PM (Till I Come)”, which was released under the name ATB on Kontor Records. This explosive mix of lively dance beats and the unique, characteristic ATB guitar became a massive hit throughout the world. André also entered all important international charts with his follow-up singles “Don’t Stop” and “Killer”, a cover of the Adamski classic, and the success of the three hits inspired him to record his first album “Movin’ Melodies”. André, however, has had a great deal of success not only as a producer but also as a remixer, making tracks by artists such as Moby, William Orbit and A-HA fit for the dance floor..

Here are a few of my favourite ATB tracks from the past 10 years.

Friday Flashback: Going Above and Beyond in 2005

| August 27th, 2010 | 2 Comments »

Above and Beyond. Their name is iconic in the dance music world.  Ever since the term “New Millenium” became a buzz word, Above and Beyond have been making their mark in the scene.  Their very first remix, a trancey take of Chakra’s ‘Home’ became an A-side feature, and shortly thereafter made their Dj-ing debut in Japan in front of 8,000 of Tokyo’s finest party people.  Not a bad way to start a music career.

In 2004, Pete Tong dubbed the Above & Beyond trio “the UK’s new trance superstars”, just after the release of their massive single No One on Earth.

As a music lover, I’d say that 2005 was the year for these music masterminds.  They put together their album Tri-State which included anthems like Air For Life (with Andy Moor), Can’t Sleep, Good For me, and Alone Tonight. The album was so good, it was stuck in my CD player for all of the car rides in 2005 (and most of 06 as well).

In the summer of 2005, Above and Beyond perfomed at the 10 year anniversary party of BBC Radio 1’s live broadcasts from Space, Ibiza. This set can be found on download sites, torrent directories, and hard drives all across the digital world, but we’ve got it right here for direct download.

Bringing you one of the best live Trance sets of the last 10 years, this is Above and Beyond, live from Space.

Vital Radio 092 – Hour 2: Darude

| April 7th, 2010 | 2 Comments »

His DJ style is a mix of progressive & uplifting trance, but he’s not too shy to throw in some tech, breaks and house flavor with even the occasional heavy metal samples. His goal is to get arms waving, feet moving and hips shaking! He quickly obtained remarkable success as a DJ. After only one year of official DJing, he was voted by his fans onto such renowned charts as The DJ  Mag’s Top 100 of 2004 & BPM Magazine’s America’s Favorite DJ list 2004, 2005 & 2006 (Trance/Commercial DJ) and in addition he gained a solid spot on The DJ List’s chart.

DJing has led Darude to radio, for which he now hosts a widely followed mixshow, “Salmiakki Sessions”. In addition, Darude has done several guest mixes for other top radio programs, including Above & Beyond’s Trance Around the World, Ministry of Sound UK and of course, Vital Radio!

Remixing the Classics. New Spin, or Sacrilege?

| March 22nd, 2010 | 1 Comment »

Remixing the Classics. New Spin, or Sacrilege?

We really noticed this trend start to gather steam in 2008. Artists, inspired by past floor-fillers, take it upon themselves to update and modernize old classics. Sometimes it’s the original artists who revisit their past hits (M.I.K.E.’s continual reworks of Strange World and Universal Nation come to mind), sometimes reworks are done by up-and-comers looking to gain some momentum, and other times it’s done by artists who are looking to cross genres or revive their old favourites.

Check out the list of reworks compiled by myself and M2J after the jump!
