A Sit Down With DJ David Tort

As a waypoint for eclectic musicians perform as they blow through town, maybe on an international tour, maybe at a house party for friends, Los Angeles has certainly seen more than its share of talented music shows. Hailing from Spain, music producer and DJ David Tort has been tearing up the charts the world over […]

A Sit Down With DJ Prodigy

The Prodigy’s journey started over two decades ago. The UK based electronic music trio were among the pioneers of the big beat sound that dominated the ‘90s and 2000s. Even in 2013, the band continues to deliver a matchless live show full of energy, punk vocals, and of course their no-nonsense approach to electronic instrumentation […]

A Sit Down With DJ Mark Sherry

In 2014 he founded Outburst Records, which has had releases supported by an abundance of a-list DJs within the dance music scene. On Saturday 14th November his label will host one of the rooms at Trance Sunctuary, so we quizzed the man himself about the label, productions and those classic tracks.   “My music has always been […]

A Sit Down With DJ The Thrillseekers

Steve Helstrip really is Thrillseekers — all by himself. All the euphoric sounds and banging beats you hear come from his head. Touted by many fans as pure genius and by conservative critics as somewhat commercialistic, there’s no denying that his sound is strictly his. His mammoth production Synaesthesia has become a trance classic for […]

A Sit Down With DJ Sharam

Meet Sharam, native Iranian DJ and producer of house-inspired music. In 2002, Sharam won a Grammy for his remix of Dido’s “Thank You”, made with Dubfire when the two worked together as Deep Dish. Now, Sharam seems to have arrived at the pinnacle of perfecting his own unique sound, by returning to his early influences. […]

A Sit Down With DJ David Squillace

His name reminds us of his Italian origins though he’s now settled in Barcelona. His music production is inspired by an interesting blend of genres, Detroit Techno gently sympathising with Spanish After Hours Tech House; but his dedication to making music doesn’t prevent him from being an extremely skillful DJ, who’s ability to create melody […]

A Sit Down With DJ Disclosure

Guy and Howard Lawrence, the brothers behind Disclosure, are 22 and 19 years old (respectively), were born and raised in suburban Surrey, England, and self-identify very strongly as deep house artists. Since their debut album, Settle, dropped at the beginning of the summer, a lot of debate has centered on whether or not they really should. It’s […]

A Sit Down With DJ Undeground Resistance

The main surprise from the last GéNéRiQ festival was obvisouly the coming of the legendary producers from Undeground Resistance. UR is a label but also the name for an impressive group of producers and djs, all originating from Detroit such as Mike Banks, Jeff Mills and Robert Hood. They truly shaped the history of techno […]

A Sit Down With DJ Must Die

Many fans are probably not aware of this, but Must Die, or Lee when he’s being a civilian, was just in Seattle at the beginning of March and opened for Datsik’s show at the Showbox Sodo. After his set he spent some time with his good friend KJ Sawka (of Destroid and Pendulum) immersing himself in […]

A Sit Down With DJ Paul Kalkbrenner

Having rarely listened to contemporary music since 1996, Kalkbrenner has assured himself that outside influences will never over shadow his own internal creative force. But, marrying fellow techno force Simina Grigoriu in 2012, Kalkbrenner is never far removed from the underground community.    “I’m successful because I always do the same thing – consistently – and stick […]
