For this week’s edition of Global Vibe Radio we welcome Octopus Recordings’ rising star Juheun.

The techno producer, DJ and live performer, has been making waves in recent years thanks to a hard work ethic in the studio and a touring schedule that has seen him introduce his brand of minimal techno and intriguing basslines to dance floors all around the world.

With a strong passion for analog gear and the latest music-producing hardware on the market, Juheun spends a lot of time in the studio constantly honing his skills and cultivating an ever-changing sound that stays ahead of the game. His professional outlook to music production and live performance have made him an Octopus Recordings mainstay, his hard work rewarded with EP releases and label showcase performances under the wing of imprint boss Sian.

Torsten Kanzler GVR

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio Episode 046 feat. Torsten Kanzler

 

6AM’s Global Vibe Radio Episode 046 comes straight from Germany, a 60-minute live techno recording by Torsten Kanzler.

Torsten Kanzler’s live sets are known to lead to controlled excess like no other. Like a chief engineer he takes his crowd into a universe of mind-blowing drum-arrangements, creaking synths and warm growling basslines, using “Maschine“ of Native Instrument and two Allen & Heath Xone K2. His direct interaction combined with a spontaneous set with up to four decks spinning is making Torsten Kanzler an exception – a league of his own.

In recent years Torsten has traveled the globe with gigs in Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Venezuela, Argentina and more, including festival appearances at Nature One, Rave on Snow and Amsterdam Dance Event just to name a few. His powerful and profound techno productions, headed by his album Analog Systems released in 2015, have gained him support by the fellow peers the likes of Richie Hawtin, Sam Paganini and Adam Beyer.

Torsten was kind enough to deliver a 60-minute live recording for the latest episode of Global Vibe Radio, and to chat with us a little about his career and what he has in store for 2017.

Alex Font GVR

Listen to Global Vibe Radio 043 ft. Alex Font

 

For the latest and forty-third edition of 6AM’s Global Vibe Radio we present you an exclusive studio mix courtesy of Valencia-based artist Alex Font.

Alex Font is a musician, producer and DJ, with a style heavily based on classical music, funk, jazz, flamenco, latin and techno-dub. He refers to his principal genre as “The Real House”, a fruit of music evolution that first began more than twelve years ago when he bought his first records and began deejaying at small clubs in Valencia, Spain.

Alex is strongly influenced by the cities of London (where he lived three years and continuously keeps visiting), Berlin and Ibiza, as well as by the the classic house sounds of the main house music schools of New York, Chicago and Detroit, mixing it with a touch of latin, jazz and sounds coming from techno-dub.

Alex is also the founder of his own record label called acmé, which he has introduced to the world with a string of four highly successful EPs featuring himself and more recently Romanian producer Sepp.
