    Radical Redemption presents his own game

    Sign in to follow this  

    Last Friday Radical Redemption announced something special on his Facebook-page. Obviously, his new album is being released very soon. However, that’s not what we’re informing you about today. The Dutch artist has announced that on the 4th of November his own mobile game will be launched. Signing up for this is already possible on his personal website.

    ..
    In a society filled with greed and chaos, the world is under threat of the dark forces of the Shadow World. In these desolate times, there is only one who can unite us all. Join the army and play.

    After watching the trailer, it seems to be that the intention of the game is to fight the dark evil powers of the Shadow World alongside with Radical Redemption and his own army. We will find out more about this soon.

    The post Radical Redemption presents his own game is visible on Hard News.

      Sunshine is her real name. We're not shitting you - Sunshine Rosie Trott. Her parents were hippies. Her father lives off-grid in northern New South Wales somewhere. But the well known Melbourne DJ started in Perth.  Everyone has story – a past, a present and an imagined future. But Sunshine’s happens to be like a Hollywood script, except of course no-one has made this up - it’s all real and it spans triumph and tragedy and back again. It’s quite a thing, and she is quite something.
       
      Sunshine has been heating up the Melbourne scene for almost two decades already! If you ask her, Sunshine will say her sets are all about "fun". Earning her stripes in a myriad of different spaces around town, she’s created a sound that is truly her own. What gives her the edge is sheer versatility – you’re just as likely to hear bleeding-edge techno alongside tech house, house and disco all in the space of one beer. Hapno is the sound and it sure ain’t coming from anyone else.
       
      Ozclubbers' Galleon managed to get some one-on-one time with this amazing and yet still very friendly artist who has established herself as a staple in the Melbourne scene, well known these days for her Rise & Shine at Revolver Upstairs every saturday morning from 7am.
         
       
      So what or who inspired you to start DJing in the late 90's? Were there any influencial dj's or records that gave you the bug?
      Growing up I always had a passion for music. When it came to DJing there were a few things that sparked my interest and I had a moment where I knew thats what i wanted to do with my life. I was 14 yrs on a dance floor at a rave in the out skirts of Perth dancing to a DJ and I was so blown away with the energy he created mixing two records together and the effect that it had on the dance floor that I knew I wanted to learn how to do that and set off on a mission to DJ. I starting collecting records after that rave, moved to Melbourne when I was 16yrs because of the thriving music scene and finally was able to purchase my own set of Technics 1200's when I was 17yrs (Thanks to a loan form my mum which i'm forever grateful for). From the day I got my decks I practised everyday learning and perfecting my skills and I haven't looked back since. I still love DJing and couldn't imagine doing anything else.
      Other things that have influenced me are these two mix cds, I use to listen to them flat out when I was a teenager - Ritchie Hawtin - Mix Mag CD and Derrick Carter - Many Shades of Cajual CD.
      Also these were favs of mine when I was a teenager and still are today - Green Velvet - The Stalker, Moodyman - Shades of Jae, Kings Of Tomorrow - Fade To Black 

      You have been playing at Revolver for upwards of 18 years. How did you get your first gig at Revolver and what keeps you coming back each Saturday for Rise & Shine?
      Yeh I have. Its gone so fast. Revolver is definitely my musical home. When I first moved to Melbourne at 16yrs. I would buy records at Hardware and Rhythm and Soul record stores in Prahran and one time I went past revolver during the day and the guy working behind the bar said I could jump on the decks for practice. I was so stoked! Back then I was struggling to save enough cash to buy a pair of my own decks.  From that point on I started going to revs all the time which lead to a few guest spots on Friday early evening and then turned into a Wednesday night midnight residency which i held down for 2years. It was that set where I first learnt about how to build a dance floor playing different genres of music - funk, soul, hip hop, disco, house. Then at the end of that residency a DJ friend of mine Viva L'Amour, who at that time was the Saturday morning resident, invited me down to play and I feel in love with that set. It turned out she was ready to move on so I ended up taking over the spot which is now Rise & Shine.  It's my 16th year of playing every Saturday morning 7am-12pm and I still love playing to the regulars new and old and seeing the enjoyment they get dancing to my favourite music. 
       
      You have a style of playing that you loosely call "Hapno" (happy techno). Tell us a bit about this and why you infuse your techno with gospel vibes?
      Yeh thats a name I came up with years ago to explain the overall sound of what I play. Hapno ends up sounding like a fun, energetic, sometimes dark, sometimes joyus experience. I love to play at mixture of techno, soulful house and everything in between but put it together in a way of having no rules, as long as the feeling is the same with both records it doesn't matter what genre they are. My favourite type of vocals are gospel inspired ones and putting techno underneath just takes the energy on the dance floor to the next level.
       
      You recently formed the Disco Faith Choir who accompany you in live performances and sing gospel vocals over instrumentals (and some original productions). How did this come together and how do you guys work together, select tracks to perform and prepare?
      It came about when I was searching for a choir to sing on a track I was writing and I also wanted them to perform at the record release party. It turned out that it was harder than I thought to get a choir to want to perform at 2am so ended up starting my own and teamed up with gun choir leader Shobana Sebastian. After the first performance we did at the record release party I knew this is what I wanted to focus my creative energy on. It felt like a natural progression of my DJ sets adding the live element and bought the DJ sound i'm know for to life in 3D. For each show I put a set together of the perfect music and vocals that I think will have great energy on the dance floor and then Shobana helps bring my vision to life with the choir. Its a lot of fun and hard work leading up to each show.

      You have the new performance coming up in March called Angel Heart.  What can we expect to hear from both yourself and Disco Faith choir at this event?
      I'm so pumped for this. It set to be our biggest show yet. There will be a few favourite tracks in there with a bunch of new stuff two. We will also be performing for the first time our cover of Dreams and another new original called Fighting. 
       
      You consistently push out flawless productions be that originals and remixes. When making records in the studio, how do you work? Where do you start and do you always have the gospel techno vibe in mind?
      Thanks. When I start making any piece of music I make an 8 bar loop that has the guts of the track in it and then develop the arrangement from there. I find i'm way more inspired if i can imagine how the end result will sound. For Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir I do keep the gospel techno vibe in mind although sometimes it turns out more like gospel house with a tech edge depending on the music idea. For Sunshine originals and remixes I work on something until ive come up with a piece of music I'd love to play in my sets which could be anything from house to techno. 
       
      You aren't far off releasing a cover of Fleetwood Mac's seminal classic Dreams. Why did you select this one to release with the choir and who is on remix duties?
      I'm so excited for this to come out. The finished track is better than I could have ever imagined and it was a great experience going in the studio to record it with Jan Skubiszewski.  I've always been a big fan of Fleetwood Mac and in the Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir performances we have been doing a cover of it which works so well with the crowd and inspired us to give our own spin to it.  Ive been testing it out in the club at the moment and it goes offff :)...The original will be released first then I'll start looking at the right fit for remixes.

      Have you looked to overseas performances (Berlin or the like) for your gospel techno excursions?
      That is definitely a dream of mine to get myself as a DJ and also the Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir performances on the world stage especially Europe. For now i'm focusing on Australia and Melbourne which has always been so supportive of my music.

      So what's in store for the next 12 months for Sunshine?
      This years all about new music. A few new Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir singles will be out soon, followed by a couple of Sunshine originals. 

      What would be your top 5 records right now?
      Dreams by Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir
      Labyrinth by Moonwalk
      My Lita (Mark Broom Remix 1) by P.leone
      Dance With The Devil By Reinier Zonneveld 
      37000 FEET (Sunshine Remix) By Holmes John and Sante

      Alex Preston has produced a new EP for Sonny Fodera’s growing Solotoko label. Titled Ain’t Gonna Cry, the EP sees the Australian DJ / producer showcase his exciting new style of underground house music, which fuses tasteful guitar licks and disco tinged funky basslines. Accompanied by a new live show that utilises Alex Preston’s virtuosic talents as an instrumentalist, Ain’t Gonna Cry is set to kick off 2019 with a bang for the Sydney-native whose career keeps growing year on year.  
       
      Since bursting onto the scene a few years back with his deft production abilities and raw aptitude for musicality, Alex Preston has firmly established himself at the helm of Australia’s underground house scene. He regularly appears on the ARIA club charts and has released on Armada Deep, BMKLTSCH RCRDS, and RCA (Sony US), among others. He’s picked up support from the like of Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Idris Elba, Oliver Heldens, and many more, while his live show is setting dancefloors alight all over Australia with an innovative blend of live guitar licks and mixing. 
       
      Alex is as comfortable in the studio as he is behind the decks and it shows with Ain’t Gonna Cry. The title track layers soulful disco samples on top of deep and funky bass lines while cascading grooves weave in and out of the beat. I Know I Got occupies darker territory but not with inspired guitar solos while Nobody Else sees Alex inject jumping beats next to tastefully crafted vocals. 
       
      Brimming with musicality and vitality, Ain’t Gonna Cry marks an exciting new direction for Alex Preston’s ever-evolving sound and the stat of an extremely successful 2019.
      Alex Preston – Ain’t Gonna Cry is out 11th January

      Following on from tech-house smash Generate earlier this year, Flash 89 is welcomed to the esteemed Solotoko label by head honcho himself Sonny Fodera, for latest killer release in the form of the Tattle Tail EP. 
       
      Lead EP track Tattle Tail is a rhythmic stomper on first listen, with an invigorating bassline underpinned beneath stuttering clicks and pulses that surrounds a grooving diva vocal. Meanwhile, Lofty transports us to deeper dimensions with an exhilarating build up that ascends into a club ready beast. 
       
      Flash 89 is a name that is continuing to magnify in size on the scene, turning the heads of underground peers and tastemakers alike. It was his remix of PNAU’s Go Bang that catapulted him beyond the Australian landscape landing him plays on BBC Radio 1. Shortly after, hefty club tracks continued to follow including Generate and the Blueprint EP as well as collaboration with Sonny Fodera himself on The Sytem via Adobe. With these slew of hair raising tracks already under his belt it’s no wonder Flash 89 gets the nod of approval from the likes of Danny Howard, De La Swing, Eli Brown, Detlef, Richy Ahmed, Huxley and more. With more material up his sleeves, prepare for Australia’s next high riser to dominate the dance circuit globally. 
       
      Flash 89 – Tattle Tail EP  is out now via Solotoko.

      A birthday is a cause for celebration, and a time to reflect on the years that have passed. When Sweat It Out was founded, it was a platform to release and champion good music - starting with close friends, and soon after spreading to the wider music community. From the outset, standards were high and the music diverse, with the very first release of Gameboy/Gamegirl’s album ‘Golden Ghetto Sex’, and the second signing to the label, Killaqueenz with the anthemic single ‘Bitches’. To this day, regardless of experience, background or genre, to quote Ajax, it’s all about “shtick”. And to us, there was one track sitting in our music library collecting metaphorical dust, and now marking 10 years of Sweat It Out, we thought it time for this one to see the light of day. To the family, friends of Adrian “Ajax” Thomas, we hope you hear in this track what we have: his lively personality, his sense of humour, and most of all, pure unadulterated "shtick".
       
      Accompanying the release, is a full music video created from the classic cartoon of Ajax's alter ego - walking past an art gallery of each Sweat It Out release artwork, again highlighting the evolution of the label over the past decade. With the initial wolf sketch created by OG Sweat designer Billmund, responsible for the creation of the iconic Sweat shoes, we were delighted to have his team on board to create this piece with us. Animated by Katy Ross, and polished by Walt Disney animator, Nick Harrop, they have given the wolf the style and swagger reminiscent of our main man Ajax.
       
      ‘I’m Hot’ is taken from the wider release ‘Sweat It Out 2008 - 2018’, which is not only a celebration of the legacy of Ajax, but the successes the label has seen over the years. With side A focusing on the Dance Legend himself, the full release features 16 tracks carefully picked from a very Sweaty catalogue of over 217 releases to date. From iconic moments like the first release, to office favourites, and the first couple of acts to break-out globally, it is both a momentous and meaningful summary of what has been achieved. And furthermore, we look forward to another 10 years of celebrating great music and great people, in loving memory of Ajax.
       
      Ajax ‘I’m Hot’ and Sweat It Out 2008 - 2018 are out now on Sweat It Out, and available via all leading music retailers.
