[wp_ad_camp_2] Your podcast.. It is insanely popular! How did it get so big? At first I thought it was some sort of mistake, hahahaha! Don’t get me wrong, this didn’t happen overnight, but once the growth started, it kept continuing to grow. But then I started getting massive amounts of emails from listeners all over the world and it was clear that they simply enjoyed what they were listening to and would spread it amongst their friends and family. Word of mouth advertising is so amazing as people tend to trust their friends/family much more than a cheesy advertisement of a DJ staring off into nowhere (yes I have those pics as well, my podcast pic is one of them! LOL). You had a mainstage debut performance at the Gorge last Summer, a gigantic open air venue in WA state. How many

[wp_ad_camp_2] [wp_ad_camp_1] Italian born producer/dj, Manuel De Le Mare has spent years delivering money-shot releases and remixes, while marrying a lifetime of passion and dedication to his love of DJing. This ability within his musical sphere has pricked the interest of global artists like Mark Knight, John Acquaviva and Feddle Le Grand. Hammarica.com found some time in his busy schedule for an exclusive interview! Manuel, you are known as the King of the Remix, taking home Beatport's Best Remixer Of 2011 title. Can and would you remix anything, or do you go by specifics? Could you make Paris Hilton sound good, or does the base material need a certain quality? Well, I took a small break from a sort of remixing mania I had. I think you can make sound good everything but it tak...
[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

[wp_ad_camp_2] Monday Sept 3rd started like any other for me. Woke up late, rushed around to get ready and run my errands, but unlike any other day I could not be put in a bad mood. I was going to Bumbershoot and seeing M83, Two Fresh, and Skrillex for the first time. Finally I rounded up my date, all my gear, and got in my car headed towards Seattle. Unfortunately by the time I parked, and got into The Bumbershoot Music and Arts festival - M83 had already started. Still I ran through to the main stage entrance aka The Key Arena - only to see a sign "EVENT FULL." I stopped mid-run kind of surprised. The thought never even crossed my mind that it could fill up. Disappointed and kind of worried about this whole first come first serve situation, I walked away with my date and scoped out
[wp_ad_camp_2] [wp_ad_camp_1] It's always a blast crashing a good party. And we, the professional Party Rockers of Hammarica.com, decided to pay a visit to LSeattle Fridays at the Pink Ultra Lounge located on the 4th floor of Pacific Place in downtown Seattle. Dubbed as 'Seattle's Elite Party Playground' - it holds true to its title with 59 straight weeks at max capacity. Now we wanted to find out why! Pink Ultra Lounge is among the most exclusive places to party in our opinion. High ceilings complemented by big windows all around with a view on downtown bring a vibe unlike any other club in town. The sound system is powerful, the dance floor is spacious and the lighting graceful. Ladies and gents take care dressing up for this night. And of course there are always great drink speci...

There are also instrumental versions of “No Room” and “This Time Its Personal.” Every track on The Power of Fire is a dance floor burner. TERRAVITA was formed in 2004 when
[wp_ad_camp_2] Betsie Larkinreturns with “Obvious” - another hit-worthy single from her debut solo album, “All We Have Is Now” on the Premier imprint. This time she’s teamed up with international DJ/Producer Lange, to create an infectious blend of House and Trance over a vocal that’s sure to be stuck in your head for weeks to come. [wp_ad_camp_1] Never settling for formulaic vocal trance, Betsie continues to push boundaries. Breaking onto the EDM scene in 2008 with the instant hit “Made of Love” with Ferry Corsten, Betsie has since had an impressive list of collaborations with artists like ATB, Andy Moor, Gabriel & Dresden, etc. “Obvious” is the next installment. The gritty thumping verse bursts into a chorus melody that puts most pop songs to shame. Soaring melodies and annihil

[wp_ad_camp_2] You recently stormed the scene with your new release 'Just One Night' which was on top of the charts for several weeks and supported by Armin Van Buuren, Dash Berlin, W&W and Leon Bolier. It came with a slightly different sound than what people were used to from you and used a mixture of trance elements blended with house and even some electro/dubstep like sounds. Is this a sound we can also expect for future releases? First of all thank you for having me! I was very happy when “Just One Night” was finished in the studio. I always try to do something that creates a certain reaction. It’s very difficult to create something fresh or new after your last release. I’m known for not releasing shitloads of tracks, although the last year I released more than I normally

[wp_ad_camp_2] You are known as the co-founder of of R&S Records together with your partner Sabine Maes. It is known as one of the longest running labels in dance music history. How did you manage to keep the label relevant through all these years? Very easy: each day a siesta, just following my heart, dreams and passion + being prepared to work extremely hard - And being prepared to lose a lot too :) Having said that I took a little sabbatical from the industry too from 2000 till 2006, just to refresh my ears! [wp_ad_camp_1] R&S is known for countless of classics ranging from Joey Beltram's Energy Flash and releases by the likes of Aphex Twin, Model 500, Golden Girls, CJ Bolland and many more..
