ViVA Music

Darius Syrossian

ViVA Music

Thursday May 5, 2011

Show Preview

From: UK

Style: techno

Famous Tracks:Lost, Superfly, 21st Century Ketchup, Out at Night, Sleepwalking, Carnival Kalimba, Femme Fatale, Tanov – Relevant (Steve Lawler Remix)

Best Known For: Hosting the legendary M42 Motorway raves when clubs wouldn’t let him spin as a youth. Leading the way in the UK techno movement. Never succumbing to the pressure to conform. Constant progression.

In a time when the music industry has risen to an all time high; where the swollen pockets of music executives have diluted quality; where the radio has become more vanilla than French ice cream; and the rise of internet distribution has allowed anyone, talented or not, to get their ‘art’ to the masses; Steve Lawler has remained all about the music.

His career has spanned nearly two decades and seen a teen from Birmingham go from throwing illegal parties under a highway to being crowned King of Space, Lawler has made it a point, no, an imperative necessity, to remain true to his forward thinking musical nature.

Now, nearly twenty years after he first threw the first of his legendary M42 motorway parties, Mr. Lawler is still pushing the boundaries of dance, performance and music.

“Performing is addictive, it’s a unique feeling, something that I will never get from anything else in my life. Sharing music that you are passionate about to an audience of people is magical for me.” – Steve Lawler

Experience the magic.

 

Bio

Steve Lawler A child of the acid house generation, has been busy with the beats long
before genres were but a twinkle in clublandʼs eye. An electronic artist who defies generic
boundaries, ever since his days organising the infamous motor way raves under the M42
motor way, in the uk.

As an Artists his releases & Remixes have been signed by some of the worlds most
established Recording labels. R&S Records, Systematic, Drumcode, Harthouse, Cocoon,
MBF, OVUM, Sci+Tec, Tsuba, Souvenir, Rekids, Boxer Sport, Be As One, Monique,
Kostbar, Skint and of course his own recording label VIVa MUSiC.

As a Label Manager Steveʼs label VIVa MUSC (found in 2006), has quickly earnʼt a
reputation for breaking new talent and has featured tracks by such artists as Reboot,
Audiofly, Simon Baker, Jamie Jones, Davide Squillace, Luca Bacchetti, Bushwacka, Livio
& Roby, Dragosh, Leon, Plasmik, Ripperton, ilario Alicante, John Selway, Peace Division,
Bearweasel, Tiefschwarz and of course lawler him self amongst many others and receives
heavy patronage by many House & Techno luminaries.

As for A&R, just ask artists like Simon Baker, Audiofly, leon, Bearweasel and Livio & Roby
and theyʼll tell you all about the support, encouragement and opportunities Lawler has
given them.

VIVa MUSiC works as a culmination of everything thatʼs gone before; from the putting on
the aforementioned illegal raves, to his residency at super club Cream back in the mid
90ʼs. Heʼs remixed high profile artists such as Jamelia, Dido and Justin Timberlake and
worked with many of the worlds renowned dance imprints. As well as recording a track for
the blockbuster horror movie by Ian Softly ʻThe Skeleton Keyʼ. Heʼs released some of the
industryʼs most collectable mix series such as the ʻDark Drumsʼ ʻLights Outʼ and, most
recently, the ʻVIVaʼ series. Now on its 3rd release, the ʻVIVaʼ series has revealed Steveʼs
widescreen vision better than any mix before with down tempo and deep house playing a
big part in the beat blend.

Steve held a triumphant residency for nine years at the Balearic club Space in Ibiza (a club
he returned back to in 2008). His VIVa Nights residency where steve played from doors
open to door close at The End in London consistently sold out for its 7 years span and his
residency at Londonʼs Home Club was one of the infamous venueʼs only success stories.
Dynamic, driven and drastically obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can.
Steveʼs passion for House, Techno and Electronica is too strong for one simple generic
association, and right now his message is louder than ever. 18 years deep and Steve
Lawler isnʼt just at the top of his game, heʼs pushing the boundaries of what a DJ can do –
both technically and creatively – as an artist and as a successful label businessman.

Show Preview

From: USA (Rhode Island)
Style: House, Mash Up, Top 40 hip-hop, rock
Famous Tracks: Beat Dat Beat
Best Known For: Gym, tan, laundry. T-shirt time. The shirt before the shirt. Tossing grenades and stepping on landmines.
America’s Best DJ Rank: 8

Pauly D’s debut performance at Glow was unreal. We were thoroughly impressed by his ability to move between tracks like Far East Movement – Fly Like a G6, Wynter Gordon and David Guetta – Dirty Talk, David Guetta and Afrojack – Louder than Words, Afrojack – Zeggie, Avicii – Bromance and Alcoholic, Sweet Disposition. You see how that goes right there? Yeah you do. That’s called FLOW, and DJ Pauly D has got plenty of it.

We can only assume that with more massive events under his belt comes an even more eclectic track selection and perhaps a widening of the gap on both ends! Like we said in our review of the first event, his ability to introduce mainstream fans to quality house music took our breath away.

This is not Pop. This is GLOW!

 

Bio


Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio aka. Pauly D was born in Providence, RI on July 5, 1980. His lifelong interest and early passion for music are what sparked his career, that passion brought him right to the top as Pauly is one of the most sought after DJ’s today.

Pauly’s fame rose to a new level in December 2009 when MTV’s highest rated show “Jersey Shore” first premiered. Pauly quickly became a fan favorite known for his impeccable grooming and memorable catchphrases.

In 2010, Pauly released his first single “Beat Dat Beat” with Universal Republic Records which quickly rose up the charts solidifying his place in pop culture. In June 2010 Pauly earned one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a DJ, he was nominated for America’s Best DJ, alongside the best in the business.

Long before his MTV “Jersey Shore” fame Pauly started as DJ, and that is where his passion remains. Pauly started spinning in the club scene at the age of 18 at local spots, and private functions.

Pauly has the incredible ability to control and please a crowd. This world famous DJ is definitely a ladies man to the fullest extreme, any venue he spins at will be packed with beautiful women, dying for a glimpse of him and what he does. He has surpassed the capabilities of most local DJ´s and the vibe he brings is beyond powerful. He strides in keeping the dance floor moving.

Pauly is one of the nation’s favorite DJ’s and is always in high demand. He is a crowd favorite and a true asset to any venue. Pauly continues to tour the world DJing while holding down a Vegas residency.
It was recently announced by Walt Disney World that he will be the featured DJ act in “Disney’s Grad Nite 2011″ at Magic Kingdom Park, which Pauly acknowledges is a huge honor.

Show Preview

From: USA (Texas)

Style: Electro

Famous Tracks: Conscindo w/ Mark Knight, Wolfgang’s 5th Symphony, Illmerica, Animal Rights w/ Deadmau5, Undertaker

Best Known For: Destroying dance floors with electro goodness. Producing banger after banger. Being awesome.

DJ Mag Rank: 70

With eight #1′s on the Beatport charts, a collaboration with Deadmau5, stops at Coachella and EDC, numerous international tour dates and a relentless production and DJ style, it’s no wonder Wolfgang Gartner cracked the DJ Mag top 100 in 2010. The electro thumper from Austin, Texas has been a major contributor in igniting the US house scene. Even though house music was invented in Chicago, it has only recently taken off in the American mainstream. Right now electro artists like Steve Aoki and Wolfgang are carrying the torch.

Gartner’s artist album is set to drop sometime this spring and we’re certain he’s going to light DC nightlife on fire with brand new productions, including that one with will.i.am we keep hearing about!

 

Bio

The name Wolfgang is synonymous with greatness. Name your baby Wolfgang, and he may grow up to be one of the world’s leading chefs, or a member of a seminal band like Kraftwerk or Van Halen. In keeping with that tradition, in less than three years the producer and DJ known as Wolfgang Gartner has gone from strength to strength, with eight #1 tracks on Beatport (including the site’s best-selling track of 2009) and remixes for A-list artists (Black Eyed Peas, Timbaland, Britney Spears), all lauded by peers such as David Guetta, Tïesto, and Pete Tong.

No, with the forename Wolfgang, Gartner’s success shouldn’t surprise anyone. And yet it does. Because that is his stock in trade: surprising listeners. “Right now, I feel like I have a responsibility to advance the genre,” he says. “I have to come up with something completely new, that’s never been done before.”

Just study a couple of Gartner’s smashes to understand how rapidly his game keeps changing. The melody of “Undertaker” is composed from an encyclopedia array of electronic timbres, chopped into succinct, rapid-fire bits, yet solid hooks anchor the whole track; while the record is instantly recognizable, it packs so much information into its grooves it’s impossible for the brain to become overly-familiar with it. “Firepower” opens with a neo-classical melody, gives way to a brief passage of glistening arpeggios reminiscent of Vangelis or Tangerine Dream, then throws down an array of beats that explode in patterned bursts like Chinese New Year.

Yet Gartner isn’t simply an underground sensation. He has played before thousands at events like Coachella and Ultra Music Festival. Black Eyed Peas main man will.i.am has already tapped him for collaborations, he was recently nominated for a grammy, and legendary record executive Jimmy Iovine—who has nurtured the careers of icons ranging from Eminem to Stevie Nicks—has displayed a strong interest in Gartner. The number of requests he gets to remix other artists’ tracks has reached a point where he elects to decline ninety-nine percent of them (“I generally only work with artists for whom I have great respect and admiration”).

Like another famous Wolfgang, Gartner started his artistic experiments at a very young age. As a little boy growing up in California he studied piano, playing both classical and jazz. But it was during a family trip to Tanzania when he was 11 years old that Gartner was turned on to dance music, in the form of a mix tape that featured Kevin Saunderson’s 1988 crossover techno hit “Good Life.” “I heard that track and it completely changed the chemical structure of my brain.” Back home in America, he began making his own forays into the field, producing original tracks on drum machines and keyboards while other kids were off at soccer practice or watching cartoons.
Unlike Mozart, Gartner’s genius didn’t translate into the misadventures of an enfant terrible. Quite the opposite: “I spent all my time with music… alone.” With the onset of adolescence, he began sharing his handiwork with the world. At 13, he procured a set of tape decks with pitch controls and a four track mixer, and started playing basement parties. A year later, he graduated to turntables, and by 16 he’d begun spinning in nightclubs. As a consequence of his well-trained ear, he was particularly attuned to harmony, eschewing the classic rookie mistake of mixing tracks in incompatible keys. “I never wanted to compromise the integrity of the music,” he recalls.

That commitment to the integrity of the music continues to this day. Gartner is meticulous in his approach to crafting new tracks in the studio, contemplating how they’ll sound in different venues and new ways to pitch curveballs at the dance music cognoscenti—without using gratuitous gimmicks. Whereas many producers start with a rhythm track, Gartner is more likely to begin with a melody and a concept, and experiment… and experiment and experiment… until the pieces begin to click. “Music doesn’t just come out of thin air,” he admits. “Inspiration is a natural process.” And it can’t be forced. If you actually take the time to read artist bios on clubglow.com please send an email to ravibayanker@yahoo.com – The first 7 responses will receive a free drink on Ravi at the event.

As he moves forward, Gartner doesn’t want to just advance his art form—he also wants to put a fresh twist on Top 40 fare. “I definitely want to work with pop and rap artists as a producer.” So long as his identity and integrity remain intact: “I want to make what I like making, and if a rapper can rap on it, then great.” With numerous new projects in the pipeline, he still appreciates the distinction between world domination and overexposure. “I’m definitely about quality over quantity,” he concludes. With Wolfgang Gartner, only one thing is certain: his next move is always a surprise.

DJ PS1 – From Dusk Til Dawn

PS1

dj ps1 washington dcWith a more than respectable Autumn Top 10 on beatport.com, PS1 has moved into Winter 10/11 with enough heat to melt metal! The Moodswing 360 all-star is one of NY’s brightest stars behind the decks. His impressive resume includes events at Cain, 1Oak and Tenjune as well as being a favorite of Diddy. In fact, it seems as though the paparazzi can’t leave the guy alone.

Paris Hilton comes to his events, says hi on a red carpet in LA, and PS1 ends up front page news in all the celebrity gossip columns. Brittney Spears climbs into the booth and starts making out with him and… well, she does things like that anyway. A favorite of Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olsen, it’s clear that PS1 has quite the buzz going for him. Spinning since he was 12 and discovered at 16 by neighbor DJ Skribble, the NY fly would prefer all that attention be directed on the party itself. All he wants to do is get behind the decks, throw a rager and go home to his sneaker collection at the end of the day.

Check out the pics from the last time DJ PS1 played at Ultrabar!
