Competition Success

A DJ contest was held back in April in order to win a series of prizes including a slot at the Festival. Over 1000 submissions were submitted and with the help of Mauro and his team, the most outstanding mixes were picked. Mauro explains “It’s important to see who has the most charisma on stage.” Mauro also explains how the unique styles of the competition winners had put them in to the spotlight. “I can feel the power of the South American drums on Yerko Alejandro’s track. It’s clear he is not European. Marco Ferrantelli was very creative in making a sexy, groovy track that mixed House and Techno without being cheesy. And Enrico Sangiuliano is a perfectionist, whose track has an amazing build-up with lots of subtle details.” With the competition winners earning a slot at this years hottest festival, we hope to see more of them in the future.

Ciao ’til Alchemy.

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
