[wp_ad_camp_2] The Riel Deal: From the prolific electronic dance breeding ground that is The Netherlands, with close to overnight speed, in 2008 he landed. In that year alone he was tipped by Tiësto as “the hottest producer around”, by DJ Magazine as “the next big thing to hit trance.” Give a warm welcome to SIED VAN RIEL! You are known as a trance producer, but are there secret house or dubstep records from your hand flowing around? I have never produced an actual full on house or dubstep track yet. Even though some of my own earlier remixes and releases were quite progressive that would be one step too far for me. [wp_ad_camp_1] Describe the most lavish event you were ever booked for? That would be a private birthday party for someone in Tunisia, who was a big fan of elec
[wp_ad_camp_2] Alex Fisher currently has productions out on labels like High Contrast, Reset, Spinnin, Fraction, Fektive, Future Focus and more. Time for a chat with this guy! In a few words, could you describe your style? I would describe it as a mix of House, Techtrance and Trance with influences from “the early days”. [wp_ad_camp_1] Is EDM the new Rock n Roll? I believe it is. DJ/producers are the new Beatles or Rolling Stones. Certainly after EDM has crossed over to The States. This opens up a door to a massive new audience. And because of social media like Facebook and Twitter, tracks can gain attention in very little time. If you could put one non-famous person in the spotlight who means a lot to you, other than you direct family or friends, who would that be and
[wp_ad_camp_2] Many people know you for your classic Into The Night. Does that track still give you goosebumps when you play it? JAN: Most people are more familiar with the vocal version ‘Take Me Away’ and it definitely never gets old to play! People request this song at every show I play at :-) If I hear a nice remix/bootleg somewhere, I will play them in my sets. What is your current top 5 of record labels for recurring quality releases? JAN: Monster Recordings, Crystal Source Recordings, Enhanced Recordings, ZOUK Recordings, Armind. [wp_ad_camp_1] Nike or Adidas? JAN: Adidas Your secret for making killer trance leads? CARLO: it’s all about the feeling and combination of sounds together, and only go for the best melody. What's the worst thing that ever
[wp_ad_camp_2] You have a few new releases coming out. We heard a rumour one of those will be on Armada? Tell us a bit more about that. Your heard correct! I have a few major releases coming up towards the end of this year. I have a two track EP with DaftBeatz, an absolute genius in the studio coming out on Armada Music. [wp_ad_camp_1] What's the word on the street for new Jake Shanahan remixes? As of right now I am doing crazy amounts of remixes. I am doing an official remix for the masterminds who created, "Anthem" a couple years ago, FILO & PERI. I am also doing two remixes for two top labels that I cannot release yet! If you look at your list of productions you have done so far. Which of those stands out the most to you and why? I have a few personal favorites, b...
[wp_ad_camp_2] Hi Artento, first off: thanks for joining Hammarica.com with this interview! Thanks for this interview, always a fun thing to do. You just released your new banger Elevation on Marco V's In Charge label. It has quite a gritty bassline combined with a catchy melody. How did this production come to life? Yes that is true. The production happened through a Skype conversation when I was waiting for my flight at the airport of Warsaw, Poland. Damian sent me a track with this melody, which I instantly loved. I was not too keen on the beats and build up, so we met on Skype and agreed on making new beats and a renewed drop and presto, Elevation was born. If you could give one production tip insight to new producers out there, what would that be? Just make the kin
