I can't actually remember, most likely Bexta got me into the scene and then one of the Adventure nights sent me into a spiral of hard trance, girls and nangs.

 

Only dnb and cider pulled me out of it.

Haha love the meme. Ahh hard-trance, those were the days. Never learnt how to dance to DNB, but I well remember a friend proclaiming at some festival or other that he'd finally worked it out, he was sooo proud.

If i hadn't already loved the dance scene, i reckon it might have been when I first saw this (err not that I'm some crazy internet stalker or anything)

@AdamMadd where do i get a suit like that? :D

Hahaha, i had that custom made. :)  Bought it in bits and pieces from the USA and then had a local girl who makes costumes put it together for me. :) 

The LED strips are from GloeyZoey, and the suit is from zentai-zentai.com.. :)

Great suit and set. If I ever make it back to Burning Man I will need to make myself one . . . don't want to be "darkwad" on the playa.

Besides far too many people on bikes at night in states where they shouldn't be, though flying along through the black on a bike is truly one of the great experiences life has to offer B|

      French producer Mathieu Koss has been carving a solid name for himself for a few years now. Having seen support early in his career from Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix, it’s easy to see why his new single is tinged with some guilt-free summer spiced optimism. The Best Is Yet To Come is Mathieu’s new effort is another great example of his persistent pop house blend.
      Mathieu’s first release, Need Your Lovin, saw immediate global reach. Followed quickly by a deep house version of NJR’s classic I Need Your Love which gained massive DJ interest, later resulting in over 2 million streams. Mathieu is most known so far however for Big Jet Plane alongside fellow DJ, Alok. The soon to be infamous remake of Angus and Julia stones slur of a folk song was a huge world-wide success. Mathieu worked epic levels of euphoria into the track, that was equally met with exhilarating force of music genius.

      Having always been a keen traveller, Mathieu is keen to use emotions conjured up by foreign voyages deep within his work. After being inspired by the uplifting attitude of some newly found Australian friends –Best Is Yet To Come was born. 
      This single was shaped specifically for Joan Alasta’s vocals, who might be recognised from her appearance in Big Jet Plane. Riding high in the mix, Joan plays her part proud.  always keen to draw from multiple influences, Joan refers frequently to the likes of Radiohead and more obscure and traditional Corsican songs. Joan’s constant search for diversity is magnified by Mathieu – both driving us forward with grace and the sheer force of positive thinking.
      Mathieu Koss – Best Is Yet To Come is available April 6th!

      Tech-house aficionados, Go Freek are back with their new single ‘Time’, proving a little time off doesn’t change a thing.
      Dynamic and experimental, Go Freek embrace the darker side of builds and the sharper side of drops creating a club track that stands out from the pack.
      Already being given the tick of approval from club guru’s such as Claptone, Vanilla Ace, Don Diablo, Roger Sanchez and Lee Foss, ‘Time’ is looking to be added to their plethora of club hits and chart toppers.
      Go Freek on ‘Time’, "This was produced for dance floors. It’s a fun record designed to hypnotise and aid listeners in losing track of Time."
       
      Go Freek have carved their name into the global dance music scene with singles such as ‘Define’, the collaboration with Dom Dolla that garnered an amazing 13 million online streams , ‘Call Out’, that reached #2 on the ARIA club charts in 2016 and ‘Put It Down’ reaching #2 on the ARIA club charts in 2017. Enabling the boys to gain support and work alongside global names such as Porter Robinson, Diplo, Claude Vonstroke, Steve Aoki and label-mate What So Not.

      By GALLEON
      In the lead up to their Australian tour and the release of their new album, Cut The Strings, Ozclubbers' @GALLEON chats with Booka Shade about their music, the album, and just life in general!

      We warmly welcome you both Arno & Walter back to Australia for your run of dates in March. You have frequented our shores regularly in the last 10 years. What is it that keeps bringing you back down under?
      Ever since we first came in 2007, we have found an enthusiastic and loyal fanbase who not only cherishes the classic tracks, but also embraces more recent songs such as LOVE INC .
      We played some of the biggest festivals such as big day out, future fest etc, but also enjoy the headline club shows, like Melbourne last weekend and the ones coming up in Brisbane, Auckland and Adelaide (during fringe festival) .
      As the new album is only coming out in a couple of weeks, we play a lot of unreleased album songs in Australia, and it´s great to see the reaction of the crowd.
      Your previous live shows have never disappointed and always left the listener wanting more. Can you let us in on a few secrets as to what we might experience this time around?
      I guess it´s not really a secret when I say that we simply LOVE performing on a stage. that´s what we are really good at (together with producing music I hope) .
      And on this tour, also because the sound of the album is more ´back to the club´, our setup is very condensed , we have all channels for synthesizers, effects, drums under control on stage, we can react quickly and can interact more spontaneously , which gives the set great energy .
       
      With your last album Galvany Street, you took a different approach to your previous albums, which included the use of more hardware and  featured various collaborations. Does Cut The Strings have any similarities to Galvany Street or have you gone back to a predominantly club approach?
      After our 2013 album EVE we had the feeling that we had said everything in terms of bass lines and riffs. we had the feeling we would only repeat ourselves if we continued in our ´usual´ way, and as artists, we definitely always want to progress, evolve, not repeat.
      Which sounds risky, because we have a career we could perhaps simply continue for years and years.
      But that would be too easy …. :-)
      So on GALVANY STREET, we made an unusual step and produced an album outside of the techno box, no techno 4/4 beats , no ´booka synth riffs´ , a lot of vocals, even pop song writing.
      Most of the vocal tracks are together with Craig Walker, former member of the UK band ARCHIVE. btw he´s got a new project coming up called THEM THERE.
      We also collaborated with Fritz Hilpert from KRAFTWERK on a Dolby atmos mix of the entire album which was released as Blu-ray disc and is part of the Box Set we released.
      We needed this time out to recharge our club batteries and indeed, we found new inspiration for club music !
      And now, with this new enthusiasm for the club, comes CUT THE STRINGS .
      After the galvany street the only guideline we had was that we wanna go back to more clubbier music and that we don‘t wanna work so crazy long on tracks as we did in the past.it should be more spontaneous and open minded.
       
      You have worked with Troels Abrahamsen (vocalist on Kolsch 'All That Matters') on your latest single and title track, Cut The Strings. How did you get to know Troels?
      We actually contacted him years ago, shortly after ´all that matters´, and recorded a first version of what would later become CUT THE STRINGS.
      But then the GALVANY STREET project came in between and we put the song aside for a while, and picked up work in the autumn of last year.
      One of the novelties of the album CUT THE STRINGS is that we worked much more spontaneous and finished the production process quicker.
      On previous albums we easily worked for 2, even 3 years on an album. Again, that´s something we wanted to change in 2018.
       
      With your latest live show, do you individually have specific functions within the show or do you collaborate on all aspects?
      The work spaces are clearly defined since we first started: Walter plays keyboards, vocoder, sequences, Arno plays the drums and whenever we play longer sets, he does a DJ part in the middle of the set.
       
      When writing Cut The Strings, did you find any tried and tested production techniques useful?
      We used some instruments that we didn‘t use for a long time ,  for example an old EMS vocoder which we bought from Ian Stanley a former member of the 80‘s group tears for fears.
      You can hear it on tyrell and of course EMS love.this little box has a very special sound.
       
      How much do you find your methods of producing music evolve with the vast amount of software and plugins available?
      Even if it is so easy nowadays to do a good sound with all the plug inns which are out there ,we‘re always looking for new sounds with a character which can help to improve the trademark sound of Booka Shade.
      Not easy but it‘s worth it.
      It‘s all about challenging yourself and not be stuck in a formula.
       
      How do you both remain resilient and at the top of your game while touring given the long hours and continual amount of work needing to be done to make your performances so memorable?
      We have a pretty good time management, considering we both have families and a lot of obligations aside of music. also, we live a rather healthy lifestyle lately, and it´s incredible how much you can get done in a day and how much more energy you can have even with little sleep.
       
      Looking into your back catalogue, you both have an extensive history as producers under various aliases and in several groups stretching back to the better part of 30 years. Would you ever consider reviving any of the older projects you both worked on together (for example Superstring)?
      Ha ha, you´re digging deep …… well not everything was gold , but having said that, most of the rights from the 90´s should have long fallen back to us, so you never know…. go listen to old demos and releases every now and then and then look for sounds and sequences on old hard drives. you can imagine, there are dozens of old computers and hard drives ...
       
      In the last few years you have set up Blaufield Music. Tell us a little about your label and its functions.
      We had founded the label Get Physical together with our friends M.A.N.D.Y. , DJ T. and Peter Hayo in the early 2000´s and left in 2008, so we needed a new outlet for our music. and every now and then we release songs from friends of ours, for example fellow berliner CHI THANH, who has produced a magnificent remix for Body Language btw).
      Could be that after the summer we´ll release a project of friends of ours from Melbourne.
       
      Within the music industry, you as individuals and collectively as Booka Shade are known for having a great reputation and being highly professional while always remaining humble. Are these qualities you would recommend any DJ, producer or musician should withhold in order to maintain longevity in the scene?
      Absolutely. most people who have been successful over a longer period of time (not just two summers) are very professional, work hard and stay grounded.
       
      Who would you say has inspired you the most musically over the last 30 years?
      Depeche mode, The Cure, New Order, Sven Vath
       
      Do you have any tips as to who is about to blow up in the next couple of years?
      ARTBAT from Ukraine are having a good run atm, look out for them.
       
      Finally, feel free to tell us a fun fact that we wouldn't know about Booka Shade.
      We love gardening in our free time.

      It took a while, but Headhunterz finally has 'a new place where the magic happens'. His studio is actually finished and he is proud to show his social media. He even calls it a dream that has become reality. And we can imagine that, because mister Heady is pretty much planning in the brand new Music From Within Studio.
      Right from the moment Headhunterz returned to hardstyle, the Veenendaler threw the door of his old studio behind him. There had to be a new one, in which he could raise Hard With Style to a higher level besides his own productions. This place is now finally realized after a months-long renovation. Headhunterz explained a bit of the veil here, but one of the companies that actually built the studio shows much more. According to the website of one of the builders, the company has "installed an extension in January that allows podcast recordings with multiple participants". View the footage from Headhunterz 'studio here, here, here and here.
      The new Headhunterz studio is finally ready
      Now that the new musical breeding ground is finished, we can secretly look forward to new enjoyment for Headhunterz's ear. In addition to the new mini-album, which will be released this year, he said earlier that he wants to bring his Hard With Style podcast to a 2.0 version. The studio would offer a solution. The last broadcast of HWS was thus even suspended to 2 February. Headhunterz apologized for this, but said that the delay for a good cause is: "It will all make sense very soon."
