We had a chat Astro Raph about his latest release and many more topics! | EDM Nations Interview

The technology is really exciting right now. What is it about DJing, compared to, say, producing your own music, that makes it interesting for you? I love to talk about an idea! Yes! Collaborations can take on many forms. A lot of stuff is Modular Synthesis either in VCV Rack recorded into Ableton or Reaktor Blocks and I also use a bit of Voltage Modular. Fiske Planetarium in Boulder, Colorado, I think the year was 1999. Could you describe your creative process on the basis of a piece or album that’s particularly dear to you, please? I was hooked. The biggest challenge right now is probably getting people to listen to them. That’s why we invited him to a short interview and get to know him better:

When did you start DJing – and what or who were your early passions and influences? I found all my favourite sounds in these plugins just starting from scratch and playing around with synthesis mostly from nothing but the “init” patch. That was like the official Strange Attractor stamp when I added that touch, but the whole song was based on reading about the Strange Attractor and trying to make an electronic song that operated in the same way. 

What are currently your main challenges as a DJ? The night was called “Chocolitarium”. I somehow managed to convince my parents to drop me off without a ticket because they refused to buy me one, and I think I just walked in. To solve this, I’ve been working on blurring the lines between producing, performing live and DJing. I created something I call “Tiny Devices Concerts” inspired of course by NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concerts”. A few years later I ended up working with Obvious World and he turned me on to a lot of music that still influences me today, especially T-Power, who also worked with Shy FX and did another project years later that influenced me as well: Chocolate Weasel. I do my best to keep up with it all! My dad’s old belt drive turntable, my dad’s old Sony CD player, a boom box with aux outs and an old radio shack mixer with a crossfader that crackled and missing knobs and faders that my friend gave me! Don’t get me wrong though, I like to throw a few Korg Volca’s in there too for some real boutique analogue flavour in the mix! I played all original tracks that night and blew people away with some genre bending tangents that didn’t seem to make sense but made perfect sense. I love pulling up a soft-synth of a classic like the Arp Odyssey or Roland System 100 or even the Korg MS-20 and seeing what sounds I can make with them, usually powered by an arpeggiator or a midi sequencer. This was Ravestock and it was the first time I heard Jungle music and it was on a huge system. What drew me in with all this was the idea that you could chop something else up and create anything was really inspiring to me. That set was definitely talked about for a long time! How would you describe your own development as an artist and the transition towards your own sound? For this I use a variety of App’s on Android and iOS and sync them together using Ableton Link. I soon started going up to the record store in the closest city and also the Best Buy looking for electronic music CD’s. So, all this is now woven into the many strange worlds of electronic sounds I currently explore. Texting when breakthrough ideas hit. I also really liked fast music and really spaced out music that took you to another world and could literally transport an entire room of people to a very harmonious state by taking them through all kinds of experiences together. I found a cool App on iOS called “Midi Link Sync” that lets you send a Midi clock to Ableton Link! A lot of it is also feeling, and if I end up applying a theme or concept to it like I did with the title song Strange Attractor, then more elements may be added to enhance that or the concept may even be the source of inspiration itself as with Strange Attractor. Tell us about one of your most memorable DJ sets. It’s all discovery and exploration, but what I discovered in these sounds is myself. THAT sound is the s*** that inspires me!”. That usually leads somewhere.  It was a combination of going “oh wow that can do that” and “that sound is me 100%! It’s the old school way of making music but with cutting edge technology that is in everybody’s pocket. I can also use DJ App’s and throw original tracks in or remix tracks live using Ninja Tune’s “Jamm Pro” (which I love very much!). I started DJing in the early 90’s when I was 12, I threw my first party for my 13th birthday party and DJ’d for the first time. My biggest influence at that time had to be a local DJ, Obvious World, who played the likes of The Shamen, Space Time Continuum, T-Power, Future Sound of London and The Irresistible Force. I’m definitely having a lot of fun as a DJ right now in my sets, exploring very strange new territory like a new take on Hi-NRG meets Warp Records. Talking on the phone about what we’re going to do (or in person if we’re lucky!). What role do they play in your approach and what are your preferred ways of engaging with other creatives through, for example, file sharing, jamming or just talking about ideas? Aside from him there were other DJ’s mostly from Europe and a few from Detroit and Chicago at that time DJing these college parties and other events. So, I’ll build parts of a track mixing these in and out with a tiny Hart Mixer (which adds a nice compression and saturation). This sound is about a certain fantasy dreamscape of ambient atmospherics, but with a passionate soul-searching melody. Follow us on socials I don’t think I had or have heard any of those tracks since at least the Y2K. Raves were still new and these older kids were coming back from raves in big cities and sharing with us what we were missing. Before that, I think the only thing I knew of that the DJ’s played was Moby’s Move and Aphex Twin’s Speed Racer. The genres just fell into each other like some playful weird thing. So, I’ll build a track using say, Funkbox on an iPhone, Remixlive on an Android, G-Stomper on a Tablet and MI Rack on an iPad. My sound has come to have a LOT of influences over the years, all the way from major artists like Kraftwerk and Jeff Mills to very talented friends that no one has heard of like ChillTown Maui and many artists in between like Paul Johnson and Doormouse. Often sending the same piece back and forth several times until it starts to feel closed to finished, and then I’ll go in and polish it. Astro Raph recently released “Axe God” on Trax Mission Records and we really loved this tune! So, for the album Strange Attractor, I really just started playing around with various synth plugins that inspire me and also Max for Live. I also tend to sync up Ableton with my hardware modular that is slowly growing and get some good loops or even a whole layer of a track. A full length on Cyborg Recordings, “Simple as They Come”, and a single on Trax Mission Records, “Axe God”. I read up on a page that described what a Strange Attractor is and how it works again and again and tried to create the song based on that. What is about music and/or sound that drew you to it? I also just released a side project on BandCamp in the genre of “Comfy Synth” called “Journey to the Moon” that I plan to also put out a limited-edition vinyl of at some point. I may have heard you have a new release out, is that true? And executing the ideas to see where they lead us in good enough time to keep the momentum going. What was your first set-up as a DJ like? When I was 14 years old though, a national rave tour came through a cornfield only 20 minutes from town. Finding ways to stay true to my original sound (you can hear it in my work as Yacob in 1998, Freakie People – Awake In The Lap Of A Dream [https://obviousworld.bandcamp.com]). I had three so far this year! The other side of this sound is the trippy audio collage, jazz inspired rhythms and I’ve also discovered my music has a dark side. The first things I actually heard at a friend’s place and was told what it was, was Orbital’s Diversions and Prodigy’s Break and Enter. I tend to be a loner by and large but that aside I also love to do collaborations when they do come together. I also used UVI’s Falcon a lot in that track and it has a Lorentz Transformation LFO! So, I got to hear some techno, a lot of house, hardcore breaks, early jungle roots, “rave” music and ambient.

FERRY CORSTEN EXPLORES HIS DEEPER SIDE WITH THE REFLECTIVE ‘OUR MOON’ FEAT. LOVLEE !

By Alex Cristian – October 24, 2020 2 0

‘Our Moon’ highlight’s Ferry Corsten’s years of experience in the studio, as he is able to coax old-school trance elements to sit seamlessly alongside newer sounds. A repeating filtered melody works well with a round bassline that bounces around and contributes to the track’s impressive groove. ‘Our Moon’, along with projects such as the UNITY fan collaboration and ambient album, have allowed Ferry to channel his innate musical creativity in new and exciting ways, and ensure he proceeds to deliver compelling new projects that keeps fans on their toes. With the timbre of Lovlee’s soothing voice, I knew where I wanted to go with the style of this track; taking it into that warm, embracing sound that triggers all those emotions of longing for summer vibes again. The single combines luscious elements with a retro flavour which provide the bed for Lovlee’s vocal prowess to shine. I held onto the song’ for a long time, waiting for a producer to come along who believed in it as much as I did. Ferry sparked an interest and blew me away with his unique, beautiful production. Lovlee commented on writing the song; “‘Our Moon’ was written & inspired by special memories that were made under the moon, with the intention to help others escape to their own memories under that same moon. Ferry opened the year with the release of his ambient album ‘As Above So Below’ under his FERR alias, an album which saw Ferry delve deeper into his love of orchestral and film music. The result is a refreshing cut that is both forward thinking whilst also staying true to his roots, and displays the evolution of an artist who has been allowed the freedom to experiment in the studio in recent months.      

Follow us on socials On ‘Our Moon’, Ferry Corsten said: The lyrics on my new single ‘Our Moon’ reflects on recent months. It was a pleasure working with him and I believe he could see how special this track was going to be.”

Ferry Corsten has worked hard to utilise the extra time in the studio this year, and the resulting musical output has seen Ferry excel on every level, providing fans and new listeners alike with cutting-edge music that cements his position at the forefront of electronic music. The amalgamation of old and new culminates in a single that balances a feeling of introspection with hope, the perfect sonic representation of recent months, equally at home on the radio as it is on festival fields and club spaces. Having used this year to continue to innovate and push the boundaries with his sound, Ferry Corsten reveals his latest output, ‘Our Moon’, a strong vocal offering featuring the powerful vocals of Lovlee. That experimentation has continued throughout 2020, most recently with ‘Black Lion’, a breaks number written in collaboration with EJECA’s Trance Wax moniker. I’m excited to be sharing this one with you guys!

Stevie Appleton takes us to ‘Paradise’ !

By Alex Cristian – October 23, 2020 2 0

On the other side, Sam Feldt does what he does best: adding his much praised production to give the tune another edge, an energy driven by sweet dance rhythms. I swear I’ve been whistling the hook of Paradise for the last 15 years; thought, ‘I need to get this song out of me somehow’ – not sure if releasing it properly has helped!”. It’s the best of both worlds, and exactly the hopeful tune we need right now. 

‘Paradise’ is released on Heartfeldt Records, a new imprint under the wings of Spinnin’ Records, launched earlier this year by Sam Feldt. Known for his enticing mix of pop and dance (reaching a new milestone with his worldwide hit ‘Post Malone’ last year) the Dutch DJ/producer knows how to take a song next level.

He’s already proven this with his solo debut single ‘Supposed To Do’ alongside platinum songwriting and features, including Tiësto’s ‘BLUE’, Lucas Estrada’s ‘Villa In Ibiza’ and Klingande’s ‘Sinner’. Follow us on socials Using the lyrics and melodies of Phil Collins’ 1989 hit song ‘Another Day In Paradise’, it’s turned into the perfect soundtrack for these strange, melancholic times we live in. The result is a classic song, taken to new heights by Appleton’s timeless craftsmanship, while also incorporating a contemporary, electronically driven sound. His ever inspiring attitude and soul drenched songs are the perfect remedy for any twist of fate. Stevie Appleton’s comforting voice seems to be made for the emotionally charged lyrics, providing the message with new layers of sentiment, while enhancing the beauty of the song’s melody with catchy guitar chords. You’ll be touched somehow by Appleton’s music, especially now it’s backed by Sam Feldt on the new single ‘Paradise’. Released on Sam Feldt’s burgeoning label Heartfeldt Records, the UK singer/songwriter perfectly uses his warm vocals and sweet guitar licks to rework the Phil Collins classic ‘Another Day In Paradise’, while incorporating the tender rhythms and high quality production skills of label boss Sam Feldt. Stevie Appleton has dropped his much anticipated new single ‘Paradise’ on a wave of melancholic vibes. Leave it to Stevie Appleton to reset the minds for a moment.  ‘Paradise’ does just that.

SABAI DELIVERS FULL ‘WHERE IT ALL BEGAN’ EP WITH REFLECTIVE FINAL SINGLE ‘MEMORIES’!

Talking about the story and emotions driving his latest single, Sabai said: “The track is a song about that huge wave of regret we feel when we finally realise a relationship has absolutely ended and there’s no going back to

save it. SABAI // CONNECT:

Spotify | YouTube | SoundCloud | Instagram | Twitter | Facebook

Follow us on socials Fully intentional, it gives musical form to Sabai’s feelings of finally coming to the right frame of mind, albeit too late to save the relationship. There’s suddenly a sense of clarity that hits and we can see clearly all the mistakes we’ve made, all the things we could have done differently, all the things we wish we could’ve changed sooner about ourselves to be a better partner but now it’s really too late. This unabashedly personal work lays out the trauma and emotion of a failed relationship so openly and welcomes listeners fully into Sabai’s experience. Breakout 2020 artist Sabai returns with ‘Memories’, his fourth single on Monstercat and the final cut to come from his first EP, the exquisite, emotional and deeply personal ‘Where It All Began’. Sabai’s documentation of the rise and fall of a real relationship, the journey through ‘Where It All Began’ started earlier this year with February’s hit ‘Million Days’. All we can do now is to take everything that we learned from this expensive lesson and make sure we don’t repeat those same mistakes again, if we’re ever lucky enough to meet someone who makes us feel the same way again.”

Bringing Claire Ridgely back to take on the vocal brings the EP perfectly full circle. Her lilting, wistful topline floats seamlessly across Sabai’s driving bass and powerful guitar riffs, the production somehow managing to evoke dichotomous emotions of regret and positivity. 3 million streams on Spotify and a staggering 12 million views on YouTube instantly established Sabai as one to watch and opened his growing fanbase up to following works ‘Save You’ and ‘Broken Glass’. For those finding themselves drawn deep into his realm, ‘Where It All Began’ is quite literally, hopefully, that. A beautiful blend of soft rock, seductive vocal lines and electronica elements woven around a Future Bass core, his work on ‘Where It All Began’ now culminates with ‘Memories’.
