2016-12-05T11:18:39Z

Making the move from writing to DJing and producing may seem like an odd transition, but when you consider the career arcs of Dave Dresden, Bill Coleman, and Joe Bermudez, it starts to make more sense.

As a sound designer for Korg and Ableton, he creates the sounds that other producers use. As a producer, he has worked with circuit Roland Belmares and commercial Joe Bermudez.

Tiesto - one name means so much. A unique vision of trance music that has conquered the world.

Maestro

2016-12-05T11:18:39Z

Maestro is a fascinating mess of a film, one that tries to encapsulate the heady freedom and joyful excesses of the early decades of the New York club experience. Unfortunately, it is fairly unfocused and amateurishly put-together. In some instances, this helps make the experience more raw and exciting, but for the most part, it proves distracting. Interview footage ranges from serviceable to unwatchable, depending both on film/video gauge and light.



Paul Oakenfold Interview

2016-12-05T11:18:39Z

Robert Clivilles Interview

2016-12-05T11:18:39Z

Robert Clivilles is truly a dance music legend. Together with his late partner David Cole, C&C Music Factory redefined dance music as a producer-driven artist medium and successfully brought their international smash hits “Gonna Make You Sweat,” “Things That Make You Go Hmm,” and “Here We Go,” to the people through clubs, video and touring. With the state of dance music in the United States, it seems like the perfect time to look back to a legend to help us focus on the future.

How many people can claim to have worked with Prince, Bryan Adams, Chuck D, Phil Oakey (Human League), and Maire Brennan (Clannad) to produce wonderful dance music? Launching the seminal UK dance label Xtravaganza, Alex Gold has been involved with over 55 top 40 hits while maintaining DJ residencies around the world. The label, which launched the careers of Chicane, Agnelli & Nelson, and several other major dance artists, mysteriously fell silent in 2002 when Alex suffered a tragic accident. Page 2.

This is like the Rosetta Stone of dance music; you can hear the Holland/Dozier/Holland sense of rhythm in all that we call dance music today. The great early Supremes records are perfect variations on a similar theme, with a one-two rhythm structure that makes even the least confident of dancers feel okay shaking it (this is similar to how trance’s beats are all 1s. To wit: standard pop rhythm structure is 1-2-3-4, the first Supremes classics are 1-2-1-2, and trance is 1-1-1-1). Page 2.
