It had been so long since I’d seen my second family I was starting to count down the seconds until we’d all be working together again.  So basically I woke up and in unlike me I was on top of things and ready to walk out the door right on time!!  That’s some frigging love and dedication if you know me at all.

EDM NEWS, INTERVIEWS
[wp_ad_camp_2] What will be the vision of Velvetine and how does it set itself apart from your other projects? The whole idea behind the formation of Velvetine was that of musical freedom. As much as Myon & Shane and I loved the music we were making at the time, we felt there was this whole other side of ourselves that we wanted to showcase. Something a bit more sophisticated and elitist, where the rules of club music don't necessarily apply, where it was more a labor of love and self-expression than trying to make a hit per se. Funny that sometimes those releases are the ones that end up being the most successful. [wp_ad_camp_1] How will a Velvetine live performance sound? Will everything be vocal, or do you guys leave room for each other where there will be instrumental par

[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’
