    Dance away your post ADE blues this Halloween as Spooked brings Nuno Dos Santos to VLLA on 28 October.

    From the time that the dead wake to when the ghosts go back to sleep, this Halloween provides a glimpse into the afterlife with a trio of DJs in a full on costumed affair. Joining SoHaSo‘s main man, Nuno Dos Santos will be New York’s Andrew Vogt and Neuro. Andrew’s nearly two decades in the New York scene saw him hold residencies at prominent venues like Verboten, Shelter, Love, and Sullivan Room, while playing alongside the likes of Sasha & Digweed, MANDY, Martin Buttrich, Lee Burridge, Magda, and more. Opening the evening will be local heroes, Neuro.

    As Spooked is a Halloween celebration, expect all the atmosphere of the event with quality music and a mature audience at an intimate Amsterdam location. There will be special Halloween cocktails on hand, as well as prizes for the best costume

      Hey Marcus. Thanks for chatting with OzClubbers. Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer some questions for us.
      Most welcome, thank you guys for reaching out!
       
      You’ve been referred to as one of the fastest rising stars in Australia’s dance music scene. What’s it like hearing things like this?
      It is beyond surreal to hear things like that because you just never expect it. For me, I’ve always just done my thing and worked on my music because it’s my passion, I never thought it’d turn into something that people from all around the world are appreciating and listening to and it is definitely inspiring hearing people say nothing but great things! It certainly keeps me grounded and keeps me motivated and hungry for more.
       
      How would you describe your sound to someone that hadn’t heard your music?
      My sound is quite simply full of melodies. What drives me to produce the music I make is having a sense of feeling and connection rather than just a bunch of random sounds being glued together. It’s progressive, groovy, euphoric, uplifting and full of good vibes. Genre-wise, you can find it along of the lines of Progressive House, Big Room and Trance.
       
      Tell us about how you got into electronic music. Do you remember your first couple of gigs in the early days? 
      Music was always a big part of my upbringing as a kid, more specifically, dance music. My father was a DJ back in the late 70s and early 80s so disco-funk was always played at home. As time went by, I discovered artists like Daft Punk and around 2003-2004 I discovered artists such as Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Axwell, Above & Beyond, Dirty South and I guess you could say the rest is history!
       
      I still remember my first gig like it was yesterday. It was on April 13, 2011 at the Sydney Olympic Park for an under 18 music festival called ‘ID’. It was a surreal feeling flying to Sydney to play a gig (for free by the way) for the first time since I am from Melbourne, but it’s still a memory I hold most close to me throughout my musical career. 
       
      What are your thoughts on the Melbourne electronic scene at the moment? Melbourne sees all the large scale events but is it keeping it underground too? What about Sydney?
      I think right now, the electronic music scene in Melbourne has gone back underground and I personally think that’s where it works best. Obviously for artists who play a bit more ‘main-room’ such as myself, it does get a bit hard to showcase but that’s where the larger shows come into play and I’m absolutely grateful for that! Sydney is where I feel most comfortable on a music front. I think going back to the previous question about my first show, I do feel I have a strong connection with the Sydney scene and the fans there but yes, there is a vast comparison with Melbourne & Sydney in terms of the scene.
       
      What are your thoughts on the revival of trance that seems to be happening now?
      I think it’s great! Trance was one of the first styles of electronic music that I heard and was apart of, I guess you could say it was my “inception into dance music”. I really love what I am hearing out there from artists not only around the world, but in Australia too. It’s creating a lot more opportunities now for the next generation of artists who are keeping it alive.
       
      We’re chatting to you from Brisbane and while we don’t see as many of the bigger events like Melbourne and Sydney do, we still get quality artists coming here but just in smaller more intimate venues. We have a strong trance following here. Do you have any thoughts on keeping the scene going and growing it for smaller cities such a Brisbane?
      I certainly miss playing in Brisbane, it’s always going to be one of my favourite cities in Australia! I haven’t been in a while, but from what I’ve seen it’s definitely growing. You have the team over at Eden really making a difference bringing in some of the hottest acts right now and I think that’s incredibly healthy for the scene to grow and become a super strong community. 
       
      What was it like being invited as a guest mixer on Above & Beyond’s ‘Group Therapy’ radio show including doing the ‘Push The Button’ feature??
      Unbelievable! I remember receiving the email at around 4am saying how urgently it needed to be done so I quickly got up in the early hours of the morning and got straight to work. Above & Beyond were the first artists in the Trance scene to pick up my new direction and having their support has been nothing short of amazing, especially since I never thought they’d be such big supporters along the way. And to all the fans who listen to ABGT and voted for me on Push The Button…that’s another surreal feeling knowing my music has connected with them on some level.
       
      Who’s your favourite artist or producer right now?
      This year has certainly been full of nothing but amazing music, so it is definitely hard to pick a favourite but I’d say right now ARTY has been doing the rounds for me. I love melodic music as I mentioned and he always delivers, especially with his alias ALPHA 9 which always works well in my DJ sets. Coming out of Australia though I’d say WILL K, he’s currently living in the UK but he’s working on some incredible music and making tremendous waves and as one of my best friends I could not be more proud than to see that happening.
       
      Finally, what do you listen to in your downtime?
      I think as a producer, you don’t want to over-do your ears with the same vibes 24/7 so in my ‘downtime’ I like to listen to more Indie/Folk vibes. Artists such as London Grammar, Coldplay, Jon Hopkins for example and recently I discovered an artist under the name of SHAED.

      By AdamMadd
      Hi Kivah, thanks for taking the time to chat!  Where are you right now and what you been up to this month?
      After travelling for the last couple of months non stop, taking the plane literally ten times in one month, I finally am settled back in London and this month I am completely focused on my single release and preparing new songs.
       
      Can you tell us a bit, in your opinion, about the scene where you are located? It is conducive to the artistic/creative lifestyle?
      I think London is one of the best places in the world to be especially for the music and artistic/creative lifestyle. London is so diverse  - you can be in Shoreditch or Camden Town, which are so alternative, and then take a cab to Mayfair and in half an hour you are in a posh private members clubs with quite a mainstream  scene. I just love the diversity of London!
       
      How does it compare to Mallorca?
      Well there are definitely more opportunities in a big city rather than on a small island. Lots of chances to make great contacts, attend events nonstop, network with industry and non- industry people and most importantly the major  artists will be surely playing in London whereas there is no chance to see your favourite artists playing in Mallorca.
       

      What inspired you to get into music?
      I always loved singing. I can’t even remember when  it started. Funny enough my dad reminded me a couple of years ago that when I was like 7 years old I already put my hand in a fist pretending that it was  a mike and was singing and dancing like crazy. I didn’t remember that I just though it all started when I formed my band when I was 15 but seems like it comes from much earlier.
       
      You got in early, being the lead singer and co-founder of “The New Flesh” in your teens, can you tell us a bit about how that came about?
      My first boyfriend was a musician, he played the bass in another band. Then the band disbanded and he suggested that I was the  lead singer, so we formed The New Flesh (we were a bit gothic back then) and that’s how I became singer-songwriter.
       
      We heard you have even recorded tracks for Café Del Mar.  Is this true, and if so, can you tell us more?
      Yes I have been doing some chill out music in the past. I have co-written a song called “Nobody” with the DJ/Producer Luis Junior and recorded “Now We Are Free” the original soundtrack of the movie Gladiator in chill out version. These tracks have been featured in albums like Space Café, Cinema Lounge, Dome Ibiza as well as Luis Juniors album “Neibum” both distributed by Café del Mar.
       
       
      Do you remember what it felt to sing for the first time in front of a crowd? How did you feel, and how well did it go?
      I was excited and nervous at the same time but with the experience and professionalism of my fellow musicians I felt sheltered and everything went great and I ended up having a lot of fun!
       
      You’ve just released a massive tune with MOTi.  How did that come about?
      MOTi  heard my song and loved it! He said he wanted to do the remix! We thought this was a collaboration we couldn’t turn down and let him add his magic to the track and the rest was history as they say!
       
      I’m sure working with MOTi is probably up there, but what would be your biggest achievement in your music career so far?
      My biggest achievement  at the moment is with “All You Sexy Ladies” I think it’s the best record so far as well as setting up my own record label. I am a businesswoman and have set up various businesses in the past so when the opportunity arrived I thought let’s go for it!
       
      What do you personally consider to be the perceptive moments of your artistic career?
      When I decided to be brave and moved firstly to Madrid to continue my musical career on my own as all the other band members were too comfortable in Mallorca but I was always quite ambitious and wanted to achieve more. A whole new experience started there for me in a big city and then later on I have repeated the same change by moving to London chasing the same dream.
       
      You’ve done a lot of modelling and acting in your time, starting from a very young age.  Can you tell us any particular memorable moments in your modelling and acting career that will stick with you for the rest of your life?
      I have many memorable moments especially when shooting commercials but I think one of the proudest  is an eight page reportage in a very popular magazine in Spain called MAN not only because it was a great achievement but also because I have shot this with a dear photographer friend of mine who has passed away suddenly couple of years ago in his hotel room in Mexico. He was such a great photographer and that photo shoot session will be in my heart and memory forever.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
      My taste in music is very eclectic but the last couple of years I have been listening a lot to The Weeknd, his voice just draws me in.
       
      And lastly, what words of wisdom would you pass on to those who are just starting out in the music industry?
      Always believe in yourself, don’t be put off what some people in the industry  tell you, you’re too fat, you’re too thin, you’re too young, you’re too old, your voice is not good enough and so on. When you are passionate about what you do with work, determination and focus you can achieve anything in life!

      When Armin van Buuren hit the Psy-Trance scene with the blistering ‘Great Spirit’ (with Vini Vici), many felt it would only be a matter of time before the five-time #1 DJ in the world would subject the global dance music movement to a record of similar magnitude and style. That moment has officially arrived today. Released on Armada Music, ‘Blah Blah Blah’ proves a telling precursor of what’s to come from Armin van Buuren’s forthcoming ‘Blah Blah Blah EP’, which is available for pre-order now and includes ‘The Last Dancer’, ‘Just As You Are’ (as Rising Star) and ‘Popcorn’.
       
      Listen here
       
      From the foreboding intro with the iconic lyrics to the devastating kick-bass combo, ‘Blah Blah Blah’ has been staking its claim as a main stage staple since its premiere at Ultra Music Festival 2018 in Miami. A buster of speakers and inducer of carnage, this track has fans going wild from Miami to Amsterdam to Sydney and back.
       
      When asked about the inspiration for his second, devastatingly powerful Psy-Trance tune, Armin van Buuren said: “Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah ‘Blah Blah Blah’ Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah ‘Blah Blah Blah’ Blah Blah Blah Blah.”

      YET AGAIN, Brisbane is being spoilt for choice as another great artist is set to return to the garden Capulet this weekend. OzClubbers was lucky enough to have a very candid chat with Jody ahead of this weekend's show brought to you by Lemon & Lime.
      As always with OzClubbers we like to keep it local and ask questions that the fans themselves want to know.  This Q&A was developed in collaboration with our very own Anjuna Brisbane crew!  Big ups to A.B.C Crew Admin Jason Whyte and crew member Riley Keatch.
       
        Artist Name: Jody Wisternoff
      Label: Anjunadeep
      What’ve you got planned for us here in Brisbane on September 16?
       
      Gonna be road testing a lot of new material from Anjunadeep10 which is nearing completion, a few new JW remixes, some classic WOW and just a bunch of hot shit basically! It’s gonna be a day to remember!
      You’ve been to Brisbane a few times – what do you like about?
       
      The parties are always daytime which I’m a huge fan of. This is a concept we’ve really embraced with the Anjunadeep open air events this summer! Capulet is such a fun spot to play, super intimate and a lovely friendly crowd. I usually end up getting kidnapped and going out afterwards too.
      How do you prepare for a set when you’re travelling?
       
      By listening to new music with my ears lol. But seriously, decent noise cancelling headphones are essential (BOSE) and a lot of planning in Rekordbox and Ableton. I generally like to map out my sets beforehand, although things usually change in the heat of the moment…
      Any thoughts on the progressive scene at the moment?
       
      In its broadest sense ie. including deep house/melodic techno/desert music etc, I think the scene is super healthy at the moment, worldwide!  Our Anjunadeep parties are starting to get booked at some of the best venues in the world. Printworks in London coming up for example. The show we did at Mirage in Brooklyn in the summer sold more tickets than a lot of the super trendy hipster parties around at that time.  Asia seems to be an expanding market for our sound right now too. So all in all I feel things are rocking at the moment!
      How is the progressive scene different to other crowds? Eg a techno or EDM crowd.
       
      I don’t really go to many techno parties and I know the EDM crowd is mostly very young. What I can say about the crowds we seem to pull is that people are generally extremely friendly and really care about the music. We get quite a few young ones (recent converts from trance) a few old ravers and everything in between - plus a good female to male ratio!
       
      Our scene here is relatively small - as a DJ do you have any thoughts on keeping the scene alive?
       
      Of course, because the scene is my livelihood pretty much. I can only do my bit really, a small cog in a big wheel.
      You got into music at the early age. What’s around these days that parents could show their kids to get them interested in making electronic music?
       
      I would suggest FL Studio (fruity loops) or garage band as an entry point. However, I did recently install FL Studio on my daughter’s laptop as an attempt to train her up as my young padwan but she only seems interested in playing Simms lol.
      Any work started on Anjunadeep 10?
       
      It’s nearing completion and I’ll be road testing some of it at the Brisbane show.
      Who’s your favourite producer?
       
      Volen Sentir.
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
       
      A lot of oldskool hiphop (1986 - 1990) and Rave (1990 – 1991) eg. before the BPM’s went crazy and it all got corny. Not much country music, although I do love the soundtrack to Crazy Heart!

      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.
