Kevin Saunderson

Monday, 24 January 2011 Q&A
"I think I overslept", says Kevin Saunderson apologetically over the phone. "I'm in LA, the time is early, you know. I've been to Detroit, but I've also been sick. It's New Year's Eve man, I got a heavy hit on a cold, and I wasn't able to travel. I'm hanging out here with Kenny Larkin before I head to Seattle".Such is the life of a techno legend. Saunderson is up early, generously so, to talk with DMC Update about his plans for 2011. He's already scored several brownie points though, going the e...

At the moment there's a big house revival and the free rave spirit is back; what are your thoughts on this?R: I'm happy the scene doesn't stand still and keeps evolving; it keeps me and the crowds moving. :) Antwerp is where you live at the moment, but you're half Chilean half Dutch; what kind of influence do you think this has had on your sound? R: I think rhythm is something I was born with. Antwerp actually gave me the choice to make my dream come true. You studied to be a goldsmith how did y...

Black Noise

Friday, 18 June 2010 Q&A
BLACK NOISE are a production force to be reckoned with. When THE FUTUREHEADS started their new label this year their first choice of remixer was Black Noise. When SOUTHERN FRIED needed someone to take their DIPLO and LAIDBACK LUKE release to another level they contacted Black Noise. And when MINISTRY OF SOUND put together their wish list for remixers of the globally successful 'RIVERSIDE (LETS GO!)' it was Black Noise who were added to that list.They've had two EP's released on NORMAN COOK's cel...

Marcel Woods

Friday, 04 June 2010 Q&A
No Peace In This ValleyDutch born Marcel Woods spins Trance music that few others can. In 2006 Woods produced a huge hit 'Advanced' which became, with the help of DJ Tiësto, one of the anthems of that year. DMC here we go... How would you describe the sound of Marcel Woods?"Raw, energetic and hard to pigeonhole!" When you are standing in front of a crowd of thousands of people on a stage, how do you want them to feel...?"That they have a great time out, and that they hear music that dares to sur...

Pete Heller

Thursday, 20 May 2010 Q&A
Overtime OverdriveWhat was the Heller household like growing up? You have five brothers and sisters, what kind of music was blaring out of each room and have any of them followed you into the creative world?"It was a pretty ordinary middle class existence in Brighton, if you can call growing up in a family of 6 kids ordinary. My dad was a bit of a hi-fi buff and had a nice collection of boogie-woogie and Elvis LPs, so I used to play them a lot, together with my brothers and sisters albums: mostl...

Friday, 14 May 2010 Q&A
Mr Wet Bones down on his farm...A brand new artist album coming out called 'The Blackwiz Farm'. It's an unusual name, why did you decide to call it that?"There are a lot of different kinds of crops and animals in farms. I am just building some thing or planting a seed in some musical form, it's about seeing how things grow once you put them out there which is kind of what you do when you make tracks and throw them out to the public - if they're good, they'll grow. Someone also heard the tracks i...

Moguai

Thursday, 29 April 2010 Q&A
Alive and KickingAndre, tell us about growing up in Marl, a relatively small town in a northern industrial area of Germany. You are now known as one of the biggest producer's and DJs in the electronic scene, back in the 80s though it was ska and punk rock that was blaring out of your bedroom stereo. What made you change camp into our dance world? "When I grew up I was into skateboarding, the music and the lifestlye just picked me. I found the same revolutionary freshness and energy at techno par...

Erol Alkan

Thursday, 22 April 2010 Q&A
Erol Alkan remains one of the most vital figures in clubland. His legendary 'alternative' night 'Trash' ran for ten years and, with no exaggeration intended, changed the way me and my friends danced to music in clubs. It was the single reason I began DJing. I would visit the website, scouring the charts and podcasts every single day - a full year or two before I had even visited The End. Under different monikers, he has turned kids onto psychedelia, disco, proto-house, big beat, post-punk, bootl...

Scotland in the HouseYou are renowned for your love of all types of music, dub, disco, reggae, house, funk, rock, soul etc. - so what artists were you listening to growing up as a kid?"We listened to bands like Primal Scream, The Stones, Hanoi Rocks, Gun'n'Roses, The Verve, and The Stooges & The Clash as kids - we discovered the joys of the "Black Ark" and Philly/ NYC Disco sound a bit later. Apart from production the true joy of music is discovery."So Darkroom Dubs Vol. 2 out on April 26th,...

The Squatters

Thursday, 08 April 2010 Q&A
From the word go they were set to be stars… Over the last few years the industry has seen the rising of not just another two guys from the seaside! The game plan was created by Oliver Portamento & Alex Powell, who have been working together for many years not just as DJs but also as successful promoters, event organisers and producers. Taking influences from old skool hip hop and rave then fusing it with today's modern House, Electro & more experimental genres such as dubstep, d&b an...

MYNC

Thursday, 01 April 2010 Q&A
After a short hiatus MYNC are back, bigger and bolder. New members bringing around new direction, do you see MYNC as a 'Sugababes' situation where anyone is replaceable or more like a 'Pussycat Dolls' situation where the backbone remains and changes can go on around it? And whilst we're at it which group would you take out for a drink or two?I think its simply about what works at the time. There has to be a synergy between members of an act everyone has to be on the same wave length musically an...

Lee Van Dowski

Thursday, 25 March 2010 Q&A
Hi Lee Van Dowksi, what first got you started in music? Where are you based and started when did you start producing? What was your 1st track and what happened with it?"As a lot of kids do, I started to learn by myself to play the guitar, I was dreaming to become a guitar hero, but I have to admit that I totally failed. I played in little friends bands, covering the pop rock standards really badly, I humbly finally realized that I would not succeed in this way...  Because of my stepfather record...
