solaris on decks

Unrelenting since 1995 is the best way to describe DJ Solaris. In a blazing fury of vinyl and chaos, Solaris assaults party goers and sound systems alike. Many have fell before the ceaseless barrage of gritty acid techno in Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale, and in cities all across the Midwest. This devout DJ/producer stepped up to the Techno alter in the mid nineties and has been preaching the word of evil techno ever since. Picture a dark dungeon, pounding with a rhythmic drone. Inside people are in a fervor some still unable to comprehend what this man behind the decks is wielding. Such stories are just a drop to the stories Solaris has to tell about his experience performing around the US. Few have the stamina and perseverance that this man puts forth at every show, giving this Tyrant of Techno a formidable collection of sounds to penetrate the ears of any with the conviction to witness his presence. This month, brings you an exclusive mix from Solaris. His ne

Erro V & Essex - The Second Day (Perry O'Neil Remix) - Captivating Sounds There are forces in the world set on killing your good time. Arm yourself with this lethal pair of Anthems, rally the troops, and give them hell. A strong synth driven effort here from Captivating Sounds. Dance Valley 2005 tested..... Raver approved!!!! Stan Void - Montavo <b:side> A Moment's Definition - Somatic Sense Vision I am hooked on these two tracks and once we fire up the decks, there is no relief for this addiction. Epic trance fans can rejoice once again. Montavo is the more uplifting and driving ant

solaris sept 2005 techno

Techno DJ and Producer Solaris is back again pushing the sounds to those in the world that need it most. These are some of his favorite tracks that have pushed their way into his mind this month. Always looking for a way to expand your horizons, in the techno world, check out these tracks and reviews. Mouseville - Cirez D - MOUSE001RMX Leave it to great purveyors of the techno genre to go and do something so nice! Words cant even describe what Beyer and Henrik B. were up to or thinking but I have to say that this is a piece of gold electro elements with the techno attitude! The flip side has a nice builder while keeping the electro tip. A must have for any club. This will get them swinging off their seats! Gigamusic – Nova - GIGA06 This reminds me of another record I have. Nice and spacey with it feeling almost Goa-like. This has the very minimal Detroit feel that kept me going when I first started. Like they say it is what dreams are made of! Keep in mind that this is still te

svs sept 2005 jungle and dnb

Originally from Long Island, NY, SVS has been playing around in Kansas City since mid-2000, playing different types of music over that time and finally settling on Jungle & DnB and pushing the limits of that since. Here's his picks for the month! SKC: Dominion/Offguard: Promo: Commercial Suicide Bringing the bang for your buck back to Commercial Suicide is SKC is this release. Dominion is a very nice dark piece with those ever so lovely chain-clanking snares. It’s a perfect track for any time of the night. Offguard sounds like something if Bad Company and Baron had a baby. Very nice bouncy beat with grasping pauses. The melody is some to be desired as it is almost mystical. arQer: Locomoco/Squalor: Promo: Basic Going solo this time arQer drives the A side as properly named, Locomoco. A very fast paced track for all of you speed freaks out there. Slowing it down a bit on the flip side is Squalor. A very nice release from the previous track with a very chill, late night synt

crampton sept 2005 house

Brent Crampton ~ Whether it be funky and deep, bompty and quirky, or just click-click beepy – this is your monthly house music source for what’s hot and churning on the dance floors at the moment. And with the Winter Music Conference just behind us, so many great choons are now on the market. Andre Harris - Get Down Africa - Large Soaring trumpets, spoken word and crisp drums, Harris makes his Large debut with this afro-centered jazz EP. With the main mix giving more of an instrumental New York feel, the house mix and dub bring the energy level up with smooth production reminiscent of a Miguel Migs and Jay-J selection. Jihad Muhammad feat. Carolyn Victorian - Melt In You - Hustle Music B ordering on porno house, this deep, moody, minimal and above all - sexy deep house track is a sexually conscious mix. A female spoken word urges that she wants to feel your special place in hers, wanting to melt in you. Sueno En Ti - Soul Creation - Deepagrooves Beach samba bliss, a Spanish fe

rj bass sept 2005 break beats

So September is upon us. Were getting out of the warm months and heading straight for the cold months or as i like to call them, the Bers. It wont be long before were all forced to stay inside to escape the cold, wind and snow that generally come with the Bers. That being the case I decided to cover a few different radio stations in this months breaks reviews. Internet radio shows can help with not being able to get out and enjoy the night life. Internet radio shows are also an up and down thing. One station may have over a thousand listeners at any given time, while another may only have 10. Regardless of the amount of listeners on any one given station, their is almost always something good to hear. When it comes to the breaks, we have a plethora of great shows and stations for which to listen to, which is a good thing, because if its cold outside and also if you live in one of the many cities where breaks are not played out in the local night life much, these stations can really hel

ask a dj sept 2005

by svs ~Have you ever been at a party and wanted to know how the DJ just pulled that trick? Ever wondered what all those knobs and buttons do? Perhaps you want to know what color his underwear was? For whatever question you may have had and didn't have the opportunity to ask or you were just to shy, now's your time. fall3n: Is any / all of your equipment insured, and how often does your gear get jacked up or disappear? Personally, none of my equipment is insured since normally it never leaves my house. However, due to recent events I'd suggest to everyone that they get their gear insured. I myself have yet to experience the pain of having anything of mine jacked aside from a pair of headphones here and there but I know plenty of people who have lost years and years of hard work due to some gutless culprits. My suggestions to you all, weather you take your gear out or not is to get insurance. Aside from things being stolen you also have to account for damage such as fir

the politics of dancing 2

by Betty Kang, PlexiPR ~  Politics – nothing to do with dance music? Paul van Dyk’s first installment of Politics Of Dancing established his belief that dancing is a political act and dance music can very well be political. He should know. As someone who enjoyed little freedom in his native East Berlin before escaping over the wall to the West, he understood all too well that radios and dance music are windows to freedom for many young people in repressive societies. His own experience has led him to use the global youth culture platform provided by dance music to voice his political opinions, such as his vocal opposition to the war in Iraq, to encourage active participation in democracy, such as his Rock the Vote Tour in 2004, and to help fight poverty by supporting social care networks for the disadvantaged from India’s Mumbai province (Akanksha) to New York (Ground Hero Kids) to his native Berlin in partnership with the German Red Cross (Rueckenwind). And in contrast to the popula
