Introducing: T_MO

Delivered... Posted by Justin Jack | Scene | Mon 2 May 2011 4:11 pm
Timo Garcia needs no introduction, having given us a wealth of major club bangers over the years. Now, moving beyond his mind-bending blend of electro, progressive and house productions, he takes a new musical direction and a new alias to match: T_Mo. The creation of Garcia's T_Mo alias was born of necessity. The lifestyle of a traveling DJ can be grueling, so when Garcia returns to the studio, he rinses his mind of the throbbing kicks and strung-out synths still ringing from the weekend gigs and jumps on an upright piano to write full-length melodies that are then worked into soothing, chilled-out electronic grooves.

Delivered... Posted by Justin Jack | Scene | Tue 1 Mar 2011 10:53 am
The new longplayer from Parisian house icon Phil Weeks couldn't have a more appropriate title than Love Affair.

Black History Month: Kevin Saunderson

Delivered... Posted by Justin Jack | Scene | Fri 25 Feb 2011 8:48 pm
There's no Big Bang for techno; it didn't simply appear out of nowhere. The music's DNA carries traces of countless forebears, from Motown to Kraftwerk. Nevertheless, like all great cultures, techno comes with its own creation myth: the Belleville Three, the trio of three African American kids from the suburbs who gave the music its initial form. For all intents and purposes, Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson invented techno as we know it. Indeed, as this week's mini-scandal over two young Italian producers unwittingly borrowing one of Saunderson's classic riffs goes to show, the Belleville Three's influence goes way beyond their mere name recognition. We caught up with Saunderson as part of our Black History Month celebration; read on for the interview.

Black History Month: Ultra Naté

Delivered... Posted by Justin Jack | Scene | Thu 3 Feb 2011 3:00 pm
Once again, in celebration of Black History Month, Beatportal spotlights some of the legends of American dance music. No matter how globalized house, techno, and their offshoots may have become, these artists remind us how the music remains rooted in African-American culture and music—an essential extension of the soul and R&B traditions, no matter how far from the source it may travel. Our first featured artist is Ultra Naté, one of the best known and most beloved voices in house music. Working alongside artists like the Basement Boys and Mood II Swing, her hits date back to 1991, when she released her debut album, Blue Notes in the Basement. Unlike many vocalists to come from club music, Naté has only deepened her involvement over the years, leaving Warner in favor of Strictly Rhythm, and even launching her own label, Blufire. An award-winning recording artist, performer, record executive, and mother, Naté is an inspiration to anyone who dreams of forging his or her own path in the music industry. Read on for an interview with the pioneering singer and house figurehead.

Introducing: DJ Meme

Delivered... Posted by Justin Jack | Scene | Mon 31 Jan 2011 7:51 pm
An icon of the Brazilian dance-music scene since the '80s, DJ Meme has just about done it all, from remixes for the likes of Mariah Carey and Ricky Martin to soulful, disco-drenched house anthems like his mixes for Fish Go Deep's "The Cure and the Cause." Speaking of his new mix CD for Defected, Defected in the House Brazil '11, it's obvious that several decades of accolades haven't dampened his passion—Meme obviously brings an infectious enthusiasm and a rare degree of humility to his work. Defected's Simon Dunmore says, "DJ Meme's work was first recommended to me by none other than Dimitri From Paris. I was super impressed by his production values, which blend the best disco vibes with the Latin rhythms of his native Brazil." Read on for an in-depth interview with Brazilian house music's most eminent ambassador.

Delivered... Posted by Justin Jack | Scene | Mon 30 Aug 2010 11:13 pm
With an already phenomenal live following, Swedish House Mafia are playing a 16-week residency at Pacha. Last year their awarding winning show, the Dark Forest, opened to record crowds, and this year’s Masquerade Motel theme immerses the crowd in a 360-degree performance, making the audience a part of the show. The reactions from SHM's live sets at Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival have received accolades from SPIN and URB Magazines as highlights of the festivals' histories. The celebrations of their all-star summer of pure extravagance continue as the superheroes of house music drop their next massive crossover anthem, 'Miami 2 Ibiza'. The signature SHM style is in full effect with euphoric synth lines, looping claps, and in-your-face percussion that has brought thousands to their feet, fists pumping to the sky. The single comes from the highly anticipated album 'Until One', set for release October 26, and compiling highlights of each of the Mafia members' solo work to date. With full support from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Andi D (Galaxy FM) and Steve Smart (Kiss FM) and Radio 1's DJ Zane Lowe calling it "the hottest record in the world", 'Miami 2 Ibiza'' looks to be a massive hit for 2010.
