DIGITALLY IMPORTED STREAMING SERVICE

Internet streaming services are changing the way dance music is enjoyed by legions of dance music fans across the globe, offering a wealth of shows and a 24-hour listening experience that captures the vibe of the dance music community from one centralised location.

Digitally Imported are one company leading the charge in this online arena, however, until recently, they've existed more as an underground, word-of-mouth service than in-your-face providers such as Spotify and Deezer.

DO OR DYRO!

Having twice placed inside the Top 30 of our annual DJ poll, its fair to say that Dyro is now a globally established star. It was only in 2013 that he made his debut, which makes it all the more impressive, not that the man himself would put it that way. Instead, Jordy Van Egmond, born in 1992, modestly attests that his success has come after a few lucky breaks”, having toiled away in his bedroom for years.

Q&A: MARTIN BUTTRICH

Some might imagine that behind every great producer is another great producer. And in fact you could easily say that of Martin Buttrich.

He has been in the background of many artists and DJs over the years, producing, engineering, remixing and furnishing their music with his gustative multi-layers, notably working with Timo Maas and Loco Dice, as well as applying his infinite studio knowledge to projects by the likes of Fatboy Slim, Green Velvet, Roger Sanchez and Josh Wink.

LOVE THE UNDERGROUND RECORDS GOES TO IBIZA

DEMAC TO THE FUTURE

Tom Demac might've bedded in with Hypercolour in recent times, but he started out raving at free parties in North Wales in the early noughties. He tells DJ Mag that what made him want to start DJing and producing himself was “seeing old hardcore DJ Mark EG smashing records over his head and cutting his record box open with an angle-grinder at Helter Skelter, Bowlers [in Manchester].

SUMMER MATTERS
After an incredible first UK tour with my brand ‘Nothing Else Matters...’, I’m excited to be doing a short one-week stint of shows the week beginning 22nd June with a selection of DJs that are making the most noise from the UK and around the world.

RANE'S PERFECT ALL-ROUNDER

When it comes to club mixers, there are only a handful of names that make it on the selection list for those who are serious about their sound — and that list has got even shorter these days with the untimely demise of Vestax. One name that is sure to be near the top of the list is Rane, who have one of the best reputations in the industry thanks to their range of rather excellent club mixers that have been seen in high-end clubs since the eighties.

Loosely based on his book Electro Choc, coming out in English this month via the Rocket 88 publishers, the film is consuming Laurent for pretty much most of this year.
