It included: The Whistle Song, Lollipop, Turn up the music and a few other great songs that also gained as much popularity as DJ Aligator’s earlier work.  Since DJ Aligator Project reached massive heights, a world-tour was planned accordingly, and before he knew it, he had performed in over 30 countries.

    LOVE INC. (featuring vocalist Simone Denny)(Broken Bones, You’re a Superstar, Here Comes the Sunshine) 

     

    In 1997, Simone hooked up with DJ/producer Chris Sheppard to form the group Love Inc.  Magic struck as their eponymous debut album went platinum.  The CD spawned numerous hits including the mind-blowing ‘Broken Bones,’ (which cracked the top ten on the Canadian pop charts, hit #1 on the dance charts, and won a JUNO plus 2 Much Music Awards), and the wondrous ‘You’re A Superstar,’ (which became a #1 Dance song domestically as well as internationally in Australia and Spain).  For co-writing the song ‘Who Do You Love,’ Simone earned a SOCANMusic Songwriter’s Award.  This success brought about a remarkable tour for Love Inc., taking them all across Canada as well as into Europe.  The turn of the millennium marked the release of Love Inc.’s second CD, ‘Into the Night.’ In 2001, their techno-pop single ‘Here Comes the Sunshine’ soared to the top of the Canadian dance charts, reached #3 in digital sales, and also received a JUNOand a Much Music award.

    Proving that anything can happen in the music industry, at the end of 2002 and into 2003, ‘You’re A Superstar’ and ‘Broken Bones’ were ecstatically embraced by the United Kingdom and Ireland.  Both singles reached the top ten on radio play and dance charts. This prompted a brief Love Inc. reunion and a tour overseas.

      Despite the hectic tour schedule, his weekly A State Of Trance radio show and all preparations for his unique Gaia show during Amsterdam Dance Event next week, Armin van Buuren hasn’t been sitting still in the studio. Today, the Grammy-nominated, globally renowned artist unleashed a brand-new single called ‘Wild Wild Son’, released on Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music.
       
      Armin van Buuren: “Many people ask me what songs of mine I’m most proud of. All tracks are my babies, but some tracks I just have more of a connection with, simply because of the time I spent on it or the emotion attached to it. In this case, ‘Wild Wild Son’ is about Sam Martin’s (then unborn) son. I fell so much in love with the song because I recognize the love I feel for my own son. I also really went the extra mile with the production, recording real drums (Koen) and real strings. It was almost a year in the making. It’s a little different from my previous work and a big step for me personally.”
       
      Helmed by sublime piano chords and wonderful, guiding vocals, ‘Wild Wild Son’ sees Armin van Buuren go down the cross-genre road to come up with an absolute masterpiece. Moving, hopeful and honest, it features the vocals of singer-songwriter Sam Martin, who worked with David Guetta on international hits such as ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Lovers On The Sun’. The release of the single, which coincides with the launch of a phenomenal official music video, also bears an empowering message; the song was written by Sam Martin as a message to his unborn son, encouraging him to follow his heart and dreams, and run free.

      One of the Pioneers of the dance music world: Sister Bliss from Faithless, will be touching down in Sydney this December for the first time in 10 years. Currently playing in some of the world’s hottest clubs, Sister Bliss will excite her Aussie fans with an exclusive Faithless DJ set, but she's taken time out of her busy tour planning to chat with Ozclubbers' @GALLEON and @Adam Madd.
       
       
      You’ve been around music since you were 5, but what first drew you into the electronic music scene and what inspired you to start DJing?
      I think the otherworldly sounds of synthesisers and drum machines grabbed me in the 80's, and that morphed into what became acid house. 
      The whole scene inspired me - I was collecting records, listening to pirate radio, going to warehouse parties and clubs, and couldn't get enough of this incredible new sound. 
      I used to make mixtapes with my friend - all my 12's on one side, and all hers on the other -so I guess the natural progression was to start DJing. 
       
       
      What can we expect from your sets in Australia this year? Will you be getting out some of the classics, focusing on new content or both?
      I'll be playing a mixture of pretty upfront music as well as some of the classics, and special edits of Faithless material - I have a weekly global radio show " Sister Bliss in Session " - and that really keeps me on top of new releases - I like to look forward musically, as there is so much great music out there, as well as bringing the crowd pleasers! 
       
       
      You’ve been referred to as the “musical engine” of Faithless.  What can you tell us about the process you go through when creating new tracks?
      Its never just one process - for me it could be anything from playing around with a chord sequence, to a melody, or vocal, to how the drums inspire me… every day is different - but I can't write without a good bass sound! Once the rough ideas are down, then its always a process of refining it, maybe working with a vocalist if it feels like it needs a vocal, sometimes playing with it for months! - and then eventually road testing it in my DJ sets. 
       
       
      What's happening on the production front for you currently?
      We are working on a new Faithless album due to be released in 2019 so thats keeping  me busy!
       
       
      How do you feel becoming a mother affected your music career?
      I think its mainly affected the amount of touring I've been able to do - I've been very lucky in that my son was able to travel with me on some DJ tours and with Faithless until he started school. Now, I've had to be more selective about when I can tour  - if they are longer and don't work with school holidays it can be a logistic nightmare with childcare! 
      i have to be very organised with my time which can be tough- for example having spent years in studios until 4am - which is sometimes when the creative juices flow - is just not feasible now. 
      I think working mothers have a tough gig - especially when you're self employed - if you don't work there is no safety net whatsoever. 
      I don't think people realise that within dance music or DJing as a career, there is no maternity pay, no sick pay, no pension - it can be pretty precarious, especially for those just starting out. 
       
       
      If you had the power to change one thing in the electronic music scene, what would that be and why?
      I think awareness of the things I mentioned above is important - and recently there has been a bit more of a discussion around mental health which is helpful. 
      This scene has become a way of life for so many people - and as an industry happens to generate a huge amount of money globally - so respect and support is needed for those in our industry - not just the superstar DJ's and artists but all those who make their job possible. 
       
       
      What would be your most memorable gig to date?
      I've been very lucky to have had so many memorable gigs - most recently playing a festival in Sarajevo was very emotional for me - I'd never played there before - but before the show I was speaking to people about their experiences during the war when they were under siege - which was very powerful and humbling. 
      There were also bullet holes in many buildings - a stark reminder of the snipers that lined the streets so recently -I dont think we can't begin to imagine how terrifying it was being shot at on a daily basis, and how normal life was just impossible. 
      Its very rare I tear up during a DJ set - but the lyrics - especially of the Faithless music I played that night felt extra resonant - and extra urgent as many parts of the world seem to be plunging into a very hateful place!  
       
       
      What are your current top 3 records right now?
      Like most of the world top Oz boy Fisher's "Losing It" is a dance floor weapon,  The Chemical Borthers are back on form with " Free Yourself" and a lovely sunrise number called "Together" from R&D 
       
       
      Are there any artists that you would recommend our readers check out?
      Really liking Circle Sky, also a rapper called Gaika, and on the pop side loving Christine & the Queens. 
       
       
      Lastly, can you tell us some interesting or unusual story from your (over) 20 years of touring?  (Our readers are pretty open minded, so no need to hold back)
      There are plenty I could tell you but what goes on tour, stays on tour!
