    Razer Hints At Teaser For First Ever Smartphone November 1st


    Guest

    Gaming industry titan Razer Inc. cut its teeth with its award-winning products in the gaming industry such as gaming mice, gaming keyboards, gaming headsets, PCs, tablets and more. Now, it looks as if they’re ready to head to the next level by teasing what appears to be the company’s first ever smartphone.

    Per The Verge, the teaser comes from the Razer Twitter. Though we can’t see exactly what the silhouetted man is holding, it does appear to be the size of a mobile phone, or alternatively, a tiny tablet. Either way, we’re excited to see what happens come November 1st. And for what it’s worth, back in January 2017 Razer Inc. purchased Nextbit, known for their crowdfunded Nextbit Robin smartphone.

      OzClubbers Feature Article - Alpha Agency
       

       
      In this weeks Feature Article, OzClubbers is proud to introduce Alpha Agency - Australia's first all female & LGBTQI+ Booking Agency.
       
      Alpha is the brainchild of a female music industry worker who had not only faced adversity as a woman in music herself, but also saw the struggles her female talent had faced over the years. During the recent Bigsound Festival in Brisbane I spent an evening with Kailei to find out more about her new venture. We ate tempura eggplant and between sake shots chatted candidly about being a woman in the music industry and her mission to support, empower and navigate a positive and successful career for women in music.
       
      Tell us a little about yourself, Kailei?
      I’m a booking agent originally from Sydney who quit her job and moved to Melbourne on a whim in May, then started a business three months later. And here we are!
       
      How’d you get into the music industry?
      I decided I was going to work in music when I was fifteen years old, so I studied Music Industry Business as soon as I finished my HSC. From there it was a lot of internships, free work, ‘blood, sweat and tears’ until I finally got my first full time job in the industry and kept on growing from there. It’s been a long journey and a lot of hard work, so it’s nice to be here doing something I really believe in which will hopefully help a lot of people along the way.
       
      What experience do you have?
      I’ve been an agent, promoter, artist manager, merchandise manager, event manager and publicist; so it’s shaped me into an allrounder which put me in a great position to start the business. I used to think I needed to be a specialist in one area of the industry but soon realised the value in having really solid experience in a number of sectors.
       
      Why'd you decide to make Alpha all female and LGBTQI+?
      Alpha stemmed from my personal experiences as a woman in music and also from seeing first-hand the constant challenges and feelings of defeat my female talent encountered over the years. I want to be able to navigate safe, positive and successful careers for people in music who don’t feel properly represented because of their gender, sexuality or ethnicity.
       
      Can someone that doesn’t identify within these areas sign with you?
      Yes of course. I’m currently speaking with a band who are fronted by a female vocalist with the other band members being straight, cis-males; however their music is about gender, sexuality and other ideologies that align with Alpha’s. We’re here to support anyone fighting the good fight with us through their music and influence!
       
      Other than the fact that you’ll be all female and LGBTQI+ inclusive, what sets you apart as a agency/booking agent?
      As an agent, I really understand the needs of female talent and form solid bonds with my artists which in turn brings out the most creative, successful and collaborative work. I also specialise and focus heavily in the corporate events and the brand sponsorship space which is a really important nut to crack for an artist.
       
      When are you launching and have you got anything special planned?
      Alpha is officially launched but we’re looking at throwing a party in summer to showcase our amazing talent roster and wet the agency’s head. It would be wrong not to!
       
      Are their any collaborators you’d like to mention (that'll be involved with Alpha)?
      I’ve collaborated with some wonderful, creative women for the launch of Alpha. A core ethos of the business is to outsource female freelancers for services such as web development, design, photography, publicity and marketing to open up more jobs for women in creative industries. So far I’ve worked with Angie Young, Xposed Media (publicity); Annie Walter, Annie Walter Design (logo); Kate Carmen, Rabble Rouse Creative (website and branding), Renee Peterson (copywriting) and Alex Drewniak (photography).
       
      Can you tell us about who you have signed? What sort or artists/genres can we expect to see coming out of Alpha?
      So far the roster includes (in alphabetical order) Ayebatonye, Feline, Rosie Kate, Sara T, Stacie Fields and Stara spanning in genres from Techno, to UK Garage, Drum & Bass, House, R&B and Dancehall.
       
      Tell us about you plan to work with charities?
      Working as an agent has an immediate impact on your artists but I sat scratching my head a few months ago wondering what other contribution I was making not only to music but the community. Alpha will continuously work with a number of charities and associations for a range of social issues in Australia, as well as those that our roster of talent hold dear to them and would like to support.
       
      Any thoughts on the state of the music scene in Melbourne or Australia that you’d like to add?
      Melbourne’s music scene is as strong as ever which is a big part of why I moved here from Sydney earlier this year. There are gigs on every night of the week, in all genres, all venues, all parts of Melbourne; it’s great and there’s such a solid music community down here. Needless to say, the lockout laws have really affected Sydney nightlife and it’s sad to watch so many iconic venues in Kings Cross and on Oxford Street shut down over the last few years when those places were my home and where my love of electronic music really solidified.
       
      What’s your No 1 piece of advice for an artist that’s tossing up signing with an agent or going it alone?
      Make sure that if you’re signing to an agency you’re signing because of the agent and not because of the status of the agency. You could sign to the best agency in the world but if your agent isn’t on the same page with your vision and the dedication to your act, it could potentially set you back further than when you were representing yourself. In terms of time to find an agent; you’ll know. Your bookings will be too much to manage solo and you’ll need someone to be repping you so that you can focus on making and/or playing music!

      MaRLo:

      Leaving a mark on charts, dance floors and music enthusiasts the world over, Dutch born / Aussie MaRLo backs up the #1 Best Trance DJ and #2 overall DJ in Australia with no justification required.  From Beatport #1’s, escaping the studio, to headlining some of the most sought after dance events in the world, MaRLo is influencing trance, tech trance and progressive house music like no other.  With a solid European beginning, now Australian residing MaRLo took inspiration from pioneers Mauro Picotto, Aphex Twin, Ferry Corsten and The Prodigy where the studio came before the shows and a live act was how he ignited.  Driving an incredible talent in the studio, he has risen to striking heights claiming top chart spots.  Signed to Armin van Buuren’s ‘Armada Music A State of Trance Recordings’ proudly boast releases that have taken the world by storm, with Armin personally noting that MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.

      Marcus Santoro:

      Having already picked up more than a dozen plays and invited as a guest mixer on Above & Beyond’s ‘Group Therapy’ radio show including the coveted ‘Push The Button’ feature, Melbourne’s Marcus Santoro proves why he is becoming known as one of the fastest rising artists in today’s Australian dance music scene.  Full of delicate, building chords, soothing atmospherics and an undeniable groove, he has truly laid the down the law on musical enthusiasts and their playlists globally.

      Unstoppable, the Santoro profile has been tapped by Swedish House Mafia maestro's Axwell /\ Ingrosso with releases on: Axtone, Armada, Revealed, Sony Music, Enhanced and most recently, gaining the attention of Armin van Buuren on his highly respected ‘A State Of Trance’ radio show, where his studio aptitude is imprinting itself on airwaves globally.

      Showtek:

      Dutch duo, Showtek, in conjunction with Symbiotic, have announced an exclusive Australian show for one night only, in which they will be showcasing a musical spectrum from their early years until today.

       Flirting with the Hardstyle sound with performances at Defqon.1 and Knockout Circuz, fans will be treated with two special sets from Showtek exhibiting their current sound, as well their hardstyle sound, with classic hits such as ‘FTS’ and ‘Expansion.’

      "We are so excited for this show.  We love our Australian Fans, who have been supporting us from the beginning.  So, to all the Showtek fans around Australia, come check us out and experience a night for the books.  We will be playing the full spectrum of the Showtek sound, from FTS to BOOYAH, to our newest upcoming singles.  We can’t wait" - SHOWTEK

      With more than 15 years under their belts, Showtek continue to develop their musical evolution and transform their diverse styles.  With crowd favourites such as: ‘Cannonball’ and ‘Booyah’ creating international attention and ‘Bad’ having dominated international charts and going platinum in Australia, it resulted in countless new fans across the globe.

      Today, Showtek is recognized as undisputed leaders within the electronic dance music genre.  This night will complement the entire spectrum of the Showtek sound.

      NYC’s subway buskers turned Beyonce collaborators Too Many Zooz and UK producer KDA have called upon the production talents of Armand Van Helden for a club-primed rework of Warriors. The original, featuring UK #1 producer KDA, has been played 45 times by Radio 1, was Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World, featured as the official track for London Pride, and has surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify. With a fresh new remix on the cards courtesy of Armand Van Helden, Warriors is poised to be elevated to new heights over the coming months.
       
      Too Many Zooz started off life as buskers on NYC’s long and winding subway system. Fast-forward just a few years and the brass-house trio have reached heights they never thought possible: from guesting on Beyonce’s Lemonade to selling out shows in the blink of an eye across Europe and the US. Composed of dancing sax wizard, Leo P, the ferocious percussionist King of Sludge and nimble-fingered trumpeter Matt Doe, Too Many Zooz are getting bigger and bigger. Hard on the heels of playing Good Morning Britain last month, there’s seemingly no end to the NYC trio’s meteoric success.
       
      KDA is a South London boy who has an equally impressive command of the commercial realm as he does the underground. He’s the name behind the UK#1, Platinum certified single Turn the Music Louder featuring Katy B and Tinie Tempah, as well as Just Say with Tinashe and the socially conscious new underground dance single Hate Me. His first-hand experience of London’s underground club culture has cemented KDA as a highly regarded dance music authority. His DJ support is an endless list of equally varied tastemakers including the likes of Jackmaster, Seth Troxler, Black Madonna and Jamie Jones.
       
      With over 20 years’ experience as one of the world’s most in demand DJs, Armand Van Helden is a name that needs little introduction. The Boston-born dance music authority has dominated the charts with singles ‘Witch Doktor’ in 1997, ‘You Don’t Know Me’ back in 1999, and ‘My My My’ in 2005. He’s released countless club tracks, old and new, that continue to leave their unmistakable mark on the dance music world. Whether he’s DJing the world’s biggest dance spaces or hard at work in his natural habitat, the studio, Armand Van Helden’s talent and reputation is unparalleled.
       
      “Armand has such a creative way of bringing new shapes and colors out of a song, and he did this brilliantly on the Warrior’s remix. It reminds us of those old UK dance records that we love, with that familiar charming energy of the kick and hats mixed with resonant filter sweeps on the trumpets and saxes. Two words: BIG CHUNE!!!!!!!” - MATT
       
      Armand Van Helden’s dance-floor ready remix of Warriors demonstrates all the hallmarks of a club classic. Replete with gargantuan 909 four to the floor beats and deep, billowing basses that underpin Too Many Zooz’ and KDA’s unmistakable ‘brass-house’ sound, the Boston dance music aficionado has provided a heady remix worthy to be played in the world’s most esteemed club spaces.
       
      Too Many Zooz VS KDA – Warriors (Armand Van Helden Remix)  is out on 17th August 2018 via Ministry Of Sound.

      With the success of his new sound in his Get It Started EP Alex Preston continues to take us on a glorious journey of infectious grooves and driving beats in his new Friday Night EP, out now on Basement Sound.
       
      Alex kicks off the EP with title track Friday Night, a bass stomping gem that features Alex Preston’s organic guitar riffs and vocal chops that make for the ideal disco-tinged jam. Next up is Hip Shakin’ Mumma, (that will find you shaking your hips for sure) with its playful key stabs, soaring strings and guitar solos that are accompanied by a toe-tapping vocal. Drawing the sun-soaked EP to a close is Don’t You Mind featuring a jacking guitar lead and shuffling beats making the Friday Night EP the perfect soundtrack to your funk-filled night out.
       
      Speaking on the release Alex tells us: “I’m really stoked with how my “Friday Night” EP turned out. When I was putting the EP together, I wanted to have 3 club tracks that embodied what I love about house music. I wanted each track to have a different feel but I also wanted to be able to play them in my live show and have them work together.”
       
      Shut away in the studio for months, Alex Preston created his own style of disco infused underground house featuring his live guitar and percussion. Along with the sound re-invention, this year sees Alex Preston announce his new live show where elements used in his productions will make a live appearance to support his new style and releases. Expect live guitar licks, cosmic basslines and warm pulsating house beats as the multi-talented artist brings his productions to life. To celebrate the Friday Night EP release, Basement Sound will be hosting Alex's Friday EP Launch at their first “Basement Beach” party at Sydney’s iconic Manly Beach on the 27th July - Basement Beach 001 feat. Alex Preston (Live) at BRKLYN (Sugar Lounge Basement)!

      Capturing the essence of summer in one neat package, Danny Avila is releasing some sizzling remixes of Too Good To Be True, his feel-good smash with The Vamps and Machine Gun Kelly. Nobody could have prepared themselves for the original collaboration, as the three artists extended beyond their respective genres to create the upbeat anthem of the season. Followed by a BROHUG remix, Too Good To Be True continued to keep up the ante. Now, Danny delivers a slamming Ibiza remix for July, plus German talent Jumpa hops on his own reimagination of the track.
      Danny Avila keeps up the momentum with his euphoric Ibiza mix, balancing dancefloor beats and infectious riffs with flawless appeal. In true Avila fashion, his catchy style makes for a genre-bending, mood-boosting rework of the original. Jumpa’s remix of TGTBT lends a laid back, tropical vibe to the single, pulling in elements of chill trap and future bass. Spanish talent Danny Avila is currently making his way through one of his biggest years to date. Having signed an international deal with SONY Music Spain and subsequently throwing himself in to a very busy festival season, the highflying producer is clearly not slowing down any time soon. Sitting at no. 52 in the Top 100 DJ’s of 2017 poll – DJ Mag’s highest re-entry of the year – Avila continues to prove himself in the ever-changing electronic landscape.
