By EDM Nations – October 15, 2020 2 0

The new ‘X Factor’ season premieres in January 2021 on TV 2 in Denmark and clips will also be available shortly after broadcast via YouTube international. Billion-streamed, multi-platinum artist Martin Jensen has been announced as a judge for the 2020 series of The  X Factor in his native Denmark, making him the first ever DJ/ producer to hold the esteemed position, as well as the youngest judge the show has ever invited, in an exciting move for 2020 into 2021. From performing at London’s iconic Webley Stadium to over 70,000 people, to the mainstage of the World’s Biggest music Festival Tomorrowland in Belgium and landing a coveted placement in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ’s Poll, charting the planet’s best, with him currently standing at #45, Martin is excited to bring his wealth of knowledge and personal investment to mentor the auditionees and artists, as a dazzling achievement he is eager to dive into. Speaking on the experience Martin said: “It’s an amazing feeling to be part of this year’s X Factor that has created so many amazing artists and musicians over the years, not only in Denmark but worldwide. Follow us on socials With the shows finale watched by the majority of Denmark viewed by millions of people last year, and now entering its 14th season, Martin Jensen will be joining fellow Danes hitmaker Oh Land and Award-winning Jazz musician Thomas Blachman, as Denmark’s most notable international artist will bring his pop-ready ear, eye for talent and years of industry experience to the forefront of the show.

To be a guide and mentor for the self-taught artists out there who want to break into the industry is something I hope to give a fresh perspective on as I was in their shoes one day too, and the music industry can be a daunting place but I really want to open doors for the next generation of talent and our next X Factor superstar!”.

TAKIS REFLECTS ON PAST RELATIONSHIPS AND EMBELLISHED TRUTHS WITH SECOND-EVER SINGLE: ‘FROM THE START’ (FEAT. VERONICA) !

Elevating the emotional charge of Veronica’s crystalline vocals and nostalgia-infused lyrics with rich chords, gentle vibes and a spark of instrumental prowess, this record is designed to make the heart grow fonder at every turn.  

Reflecting on past relationships and embellished truths, ‘From The Start’ marks the second all-Canadian record from Takis’ aforementioned ‘Welcome Home’ project. A magical collaboration with fellow Canadian and award-winning singer-songwriter Veronica, ‘From The Start’ follows suit after debut release ‘Wait For Me’ (with Goody Grace & Tory Lanez) and flawlessly touches on the subject of relationships and personal growth, just like his upcoming ‘Welcome Home’ project. “We’ve all been there when we were young. “It’s about admitting that if I can take the emotional charge out of these memories, I can be honest enough to say we were never a good fit in the first place, that we really never had a chance from the start. I’ve had the pleasure to see Takis grow as an artist and also release some of my favorite songs, like ‘Wait For Me’. “That first line – ‘we gotta learn how to love ourselves so we can love each other’ – is so powerful it sparked the entire record”, Takis explains. We could find every single little fault in our exes but couldn’t fathom that maybe, just maybe, we were flawed and could have been the ones who ruined the relationship. We knew “From The Start” had a lot of potential and I’m incredibly happy for the world to hear it.”

Follow us on socials “From The Start” was one of the first sessions I did when I moved down there. We wrote a song together in Toronto and then I moved down to L.A. dance radio as the co-writer of Famba’s ‘Storm’ and clocked up over 50 million streams with her and Dzeko’s ‘Heaven’, adds: “Takis and I have known each other for some time now, and it all started when he messaged me on Instagram a couple years ago to work with him. And for me personally, it also allows me to question what other nostalgic memories from my hometown I’ve exaggerated in my head, which in turn reflects on the theme of my upcoming ‘Welcome Home’ project.”

Veronica, who hit #1 at U.S. We gotta learn how to love ourselves so we can love each other.” Truer words have never been spoken, and they take center stage in Takis’ brilliant second single on Armada Music. The idea behind the song felt so much larger than anything else I was writing at the time. If I am not fully comfortable in my own skin, if I still carry jealousy or insecurity, I can never be someone who can express the love needed to create a sustainable relationship.”

‘From The Start’ is the story of much-needed closure and acceptance for failed relationships”, he continues.

Brown Vox opens up about his passions and plans | EDM Nations Interview !

By EDM Nations – October 13, 2020 15 0

He has spent more than half of his life dedicated to musical experiences, which has given him a strong foundation and knowledge on how to deliver stylistic unique productions that leave lasting impressions. What is the process of preparing for a live show like? During that period, I started producing with FL Studio, I used to go back to the studio after my orchestra’s rehearsals to produce music, using some of the same notes I played a few hours earlier. He illuminates his passion and devotion in this industry by creating phenomenal melodies that protrude unique and memorable traits. My approach as an artist is to walk along with the soul. Back then I was mostly making remixes and my versions of famous songs, posting them on music forums and social media platforms. Moreover, some of these tunes got thousands of views on YouTube. My first gig was extremely exciting. For me a person who creates art is a person who’s connected to his soul, his colours, his sounds, his shapes and his thoughts. I feel that DJ-ing allows me to interact with the public. Follow us on socials Some of them were picked up by well-known radio stations and also played in notorious clubs in Tel Aviv. What is about music and/or sound that drew you to it? The music style was Tech House and Deep Tech music. Brown Vox’s journey in the music industry started at the age of 7, when he started recording beats and producing dance music with his first EJAY software. Brown Vox (aka Yehuda Salomon) is a talented House music producer and DJ based in Tel Aviv, Israel. Those felt like my very first gigs. I played for 2 hours for a Midburn Community, the Israeli Burning Man festival. Back then I was an unknown DJ. I first started DJ-ing 3 years ago, my first time was at a friend´s party in Tel Aviv. I truly believe that it is essential for everyone. I believe it is a great opportunity to develop my career and my network inside the music industry. I remember recording beats with my family’s radio tape and playing them some of my creations. I usually need a day or 2 to get ready for a live show, just to listen to music and pick up some tracks. “I believe art allows me to express myself in a different language” says Brown Vox. 2 years later I started taking Saxophone lessons. For the first time in my life I created and produced Dance music. The musician was actively involved in his hometown’s orchestra for many years, impressively playing as both a saxophonist and pianist. I love studio work but D-Jing inspires me in a different way. I got my special sources for this and I like to refresh dancefloors with new sounds that excite me. In addition, I have some unscheduled releases for later this year and next year. When I was younger, I dreamt of becoming a Trance DJ. For me being an artist is a gift. As of recent, he has started producing with FL studio. My dream of becoming a DJ/Producer started many years ago. I may have heard you have new releases coming, is that true? The music genres that mostly rule in Israel are Psy-trance, Deep House and Techno, we have huge communities and scenes here for these types of music. Yes, it is true I have some scheduled releases for the next 2 months on labels such as Groove 33, Lapsus, Ole Records, Innocent and more. Seeing how they enjoy my music, their smiles and dance moves. However, due to my experiences in life, and new influences, I feel like the House scene is the best for me. When did you start DJing – and what or who were your early passions and influences? I consider that art is freedom, allowing me to express myself in a different language. That’s a good question, Israelis love to party hard and we know how to have a good time, I can surly say we live in the moment when we party. It makes me feel good and happy and that is the greatest part of it for me. My journey in the music industry started when I was 7 years old, my mom bought cool software on a CD called EJAY. I invest so much time in it because it is one of my passions. What is it about DJing, compared to, say, producing your own music, that makes it interesting for you? What was your first set-up as a DJ like? My set-up was extremely simple, a PC laptop and Traktor MK4 controller. For 5 years I was playing saxophone in the local orchestra in my city. Tech House hasn’t reached here yet, though it’s 2020. Influenced by jazz, classic and psytrance vibes, his music is a portrait of his soul and thoughts. I really like playing brand new tracks from unknow artists. When did you start writing/producing music? What can you tell us about the Israel scene? He has released his music on record labels like: Distortion / Huambo / Lapsus / Ole Records / Monkey Lab / Nasty Funk / Groove 33 / Monkey Stereo and many more…

Can you describe your approach to art and being an artist? I believe that it gives me a place to show myself to the world. Parties every night and huge festivals, before Covid-19 started obviously. I hope to be the one who brings the news as soon as life gets to normal again. Gotta say I’m super excited about these releases and being signed on these great labels. I recently signed on some great labels such as Cocoa, Gruff, Unnamed & Unknown and more.

INDECENT NOISE RELEASED A MASSIVE ALBUM, “EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED”!

Early on your foundations get a good shake as singer Noire Lee picks up the mic to send Corey Hart’s ‘Sunglasses At Night’ blazing through the trance prism. Not unduly though, Indecent Noise does ringfence a full quarter of his album for his most favoured studio weapon. From the Wink-esque ‘Worlds Collide’ with Lostly, to the squally, stormy ’Kernel Panic’ in collaboration with EverLight, ‘Everything Is Connected’ slides its acidic centre-column into place. Back to those aforementioned artistic predeterminations then, because (albeit in the less anticipatable of fashions) ‘Everything Is Connected’ explodes many of them. ‘Lekko’ (the Polish word for light-of-weight) is housed at ‘Everything Is Connected’s midsection, is another pause-for-breath moment, and one that develops pondering poignancy and cinematic ether in equal measure. It also climbs ‘north’, (no mean feat when you’re ‘Mr. Uplifting trance may not be Indecent’s first go-to, but the assured nature of the album’s altitude-grabbing moments speak volubly of his abilities. The album reserves it biggest punk for its final quarter though, as it draws inspiration from generation-Rave and channels it into three incredible authentic close-out cuts. The album provides conversely cooler moments too. Acid’) to euphoric summits and further still into hardstyle/core forms. The furiously fast Acen-esque breaks of ‘Show Me Where To Go’ take it to the fields, the track’s chord soar and most of infectious of vocals sealing its deal. An album that finally allows Indecent Noise the bandwidth to head in all potential artistic directions at once, ‘Everything Is Connected’ will mean much to most. It’s out through Black Hole Recordings on October 9 and is available through all good sales and streaming platforms

Follow us on socials Aleksander’s certainly delivered an album that expands tonally on his known-for remit, but not merely in the deeper/cooler direction. There’s also the more chord-and-pad-empowered uplift of recent single ‘Visions Of The Dream’, while Aleksander also delivers a dazzlingly reformation of Jam & Spoon’s classic ‘Be.Angeled’. ‘Pictures Of A Gallery’ w/Diver & Ace ups atmospheres with joyfully hammering M1 piano lines, whilst the unambiguous intent of ‘R.A.V.E.’ brilliantly riffs on the riff of Fierce Rulin’ Diva’s ‘Rubb It In’. Its one-two overture is comprised of the scene-setting ‘Brightest Day’, which in turn cedes to the more atmospherically swirling ‘White Lotus’. Further in, ‘Extractor’ alongside Renegade System turns the bosh-factor up to 11, while ‘Nightmare Fuel’ expounds on the long-dark-corridor-themes of the 303.

The result of this effort by Famba, Jake Tarry, and Alex Hosking is ‘Know You Best’, a pulsing white-hot anthem that’s influenced in equal parts by late ‘90s house and 21st century pop. This is not a retro song by any stretch of the imagination.

Fast forward to the start of 2020 however, and the world stopped in its tracks. It is no surprise then that such an event would spawn a collaboration between an award-winning Canadian producer, a rising English producer living in Amsterdam, and an Australian vocalist and songwriter whose current single has been a fixture on the OCC UK Singles charts over the past four months.

Opening with Alex Hosking’s sultry vocals, deep rich basslines soon wrap around the tune’s seductive lyrics as it builds into a dance floor pleasing chorus that will have feet moving and hands waiving. I wanted to capture that feeling of going out for the night, losing your inhibitions, and feeling that “high” in the moment. On working on ‘Know You Best’, Famba had this to say: “’Know You Best’ is exactly the direction I’ve been wanting to go with my new music, and collab’ing with Jake and Alex turned out to be the perfect pairing at the perfect time.”  Newcastle born, Jake Tarry, has been soaking up the Dutch music scene since moving to Holland as a teenager.

It’s another tune about love, because I know that’s precisely what you guys need!”

And those unrestrainable emotions, that near-unmanageable state of mind that goes round and round like a roller coaster, beats strong in Armin van Buuren’s brand-new single: ‘Need You Now’ (feat. Bearing quite a bit of attitude on an instrumental level, ‘Need You Now’ shows just how turbulent a love-stricken mind can be. It helped the track come alive very organically and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Featuring the dynamic vocals and relatable lyrics of fellow Dutchman Jake Reese on a backdrop of strong, House-tinged beats and effervescent piano chords, ‘Need You Now’ is a multi-purpose listening experience that comes with significant replay value. “You don’t always know when the inspiration for a song may come, but it struck me full force when I heard Jake Reese’s vocals and lyrics for this single”, Armin van Buuren explains.
