As we all know, Chicago is the birth place of house music. Were you involved in the club scene when the house sound started to develop? How did you experience that time? Well house started gaining momentum in Chicago I was in the 5th grade lol. I was just starting to discover music beyond just what I heard in the background at family functions around that time, so my immediate take on it was the same as a kid with a new toy that they’d never seen befo

Give a warm welcome to BASSROCK!! [wp_ad_camp_1] BASSROCK, you are a fresh face in the US dance scene. Could you describe your style for the people who don't know you yet? I don't pretend to be tied down to one style or another, but I do find myself drawn to Big Room House quite often, the style that Firebeatz and Nicky Romero have been coming out with recently. I just love the energy that comes with those basslines. My productions vary all over, however, and I've produced tracks within at least 20 different sub genres. Most times, when people ask me, I sum it up by telling them that I pr...

So Please give a warm welcome to VOX MOD! Tell us something about your background and how your career started. My background is based in visual arts but later on I adopted percussion and drums. The entire time of my youth I was really drawn to electronic music though, so around 2000 I decided to look into drum machines, sequencers, and samplers after being tremendously inspired by Orbital. Additionally, I obtained the program Acid 2.0 (which I still use) and sought to develop up my editing, mixing, and recording skills. It was also vastly important being introduced to so many types of music an...

EDM NEWS, INTERVIEWS
[wp_ad_camp_2] [wp_ad_camp_1] You are a trance DJ and producer from the US. Dubstep and electro seem to gain a lot of momentum Stateside, but trance still has its loyal following. How would you describe the current US trance scene? Dubstep & Electro have definitely taken center stage in a lot of ways in the US; it’s a good thing that more people are getting exposed to EDM. I think what makes trance so timeless is the emphasis on harmony & melody that is often lacking in other genres; so once people start looking for something deeper in the music, trance will be there waiting. Look at acts like Porter Robinson, his track Language, it is very trance influenced. I think people will grow into trance once given time & exposure. I think every market in the US is unique, it’

Dubbin And Dabblin with DJ Dab – Exclusive Interview

EDM NEWS, INTERVIEWS
[wp_ad_camp_2] Where does your artist name come from? During the early to mid-80's I went by Sir Swift. I was a Breaker, Beatboxer, Graffiti artist and DJ. But as my DJing progressed and I matured a little I realized it was time for a name change. At the time I remember digging through a dictionary, for days, and finally stumbled across Dabster: One likes to dabble/ One who is a master of their own trade. The latter seemed fitting. LOL. Around 1991 I shortened it to Dab (also means Donald Allen's Boy) [wp_ad_camp_1] You have been a beat producer since the early 80's whether it was house, hiphop or any other style. Could you tell us a bit more about your early hiphop records and collabs? All my exploits in last question led up to me making a progressive move to go out and attem
