Based in Detroit, Dani has been making a name for herself in the United States techno scene as a fine track selector with a penchant for dark, heavy bass lines and an unmistakeable groove that gets entire dance floors moving.

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 068 feat. Synthek Live at KHIDI

Synthek is a Berlin based DJ and producer, owner of Natch Records and STK imprint. Always seeking for new influences, over the past years the style of his sets and productions has faced a constant evolution, focusing on deep rhythmics and powerful, introspective vibes.

Following few successful EPs on Natch Records, he released his debut album Unwise, in collaboration with label partner Audiolouis. Unwise, seen as their last co-produced effort, got consecutively remixed by Polar Inertia, Antigone and Varg among others. Synthek started curating the booking of New Faces Wednesdays at Tresor Berlin in 2014, becoming a respected presence behind the decks of the legendary venue and especially so for his closing sets. The idea of creating STK, a self titled imprint and home of his own productions only, gives him the freedom to experiment new approaches to music production and reshape his signature sound. The initial wave of 3 EPs entitled VERSE, launched in July 2015, brought him to look slightly away from the dance floor, and finally orienting towards mind-twisting and psychedelic compositions. Beside releases on STK, since his last appearance on Attic Music, Synthek has released new material such as his MRI EP on Russian label Wunderblock, a remix alongside Svreca on Spanish imprint Redpoint Alert, and a contribution for a compilation on OVUNQVE.

This year Synthek released Transitions of Life on Natch Records, his first solo LP. The 11-tracker came out on April 18th, the unfolding of a two-year transformational period that saw Synthek cross along rough roads and tribulations to reveal an intimate personal journey of revelation through emotional downshift, spiritual upheaval and cerebral quandary.

Synthetk is this week’s guest on Global Vibe Radio, where he presents the last 3 hours of his 7 hour set at KHIDI in Georgia from earlier in 2017. We also took the chance to chat with him about projects past, present and future. Enjoy the mix and read on for the exclusive interview!

In 2011, he was chosen to be part of the infamous Nice To Be project where his collaboration granted him the possibility to grow and push the limits as an artist. It’s when his own style began to shape towards Techno that Diego was inspired to make his own music, and when his unique personality grew as an artist. His various releases are among respected labels such as Konsequent Records, Nowhere, Etruria Beat, N2B Black Series, Planet Rhythm.

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 063 feat. Salvione

Our Global Vibe Radio podcast took a break last week while we were in Detroit for Movement Electronic Music Festival, but we are back today with a special one courtesy of one of our favorite rising talents out of New York City.

Known simply as Salvione, Michael Salvione draws inspiration from a number of diverse artists such as Adam Port, David August and Stacey Pullen. The result is a sound that is a seamless blend of funk, tribal, deep house and tech, injected with elements of hip-hop, techno and nu disco. Salvione makes dance floors groove, and he does so with the poise and ease of a veteran, despite still being a new name in the international electronic music scene.

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 061 feat. Blank Code’s Anthony Jimenez

Anthony Jimenez got his start as a DJ back in 2003, gaining experience playing records spanning several genres before finding his niche in techno. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, the DJ and producer was drawn to the dark and cavernous sound of techno when he moved to Detroit, going on to become a mainstay at Blank Code‘s Scene parties.

Time Under Tension, his 2014 debut EP released on Blank Code, made waves in the international techno scene, receiving support and plays by the likes of Annie Hall, Brendon Moeller, Exium, DJ Hyperactive, Krenzlin, Pfirter and Rebekkah. A tastemaker in his own right, Anthonys own productions are a mirror representation of the hard word and tenacity he adopts in every studio session and DJ set. Driven by the raw and primal nature of techno, his DJ arrangements and original productions are characterized by broody and deep musical explorations peppered with hypnotic and rhythmic sonic experiences. His signature sound has made him a local favorite in a city that not only gave birth to techno, but continues to push the envelope for the genre’s future progress with a selection of top-tier talent in both the producer and DJ categories.

His skills have not gone unnoticed, landing Jimenez coveted spots alongside some of technos greatest names in the international touring circuit including Monoloc, Silent Servant, Dasha Rush, Regis. Perc, Adam X, Headless Horseman and Dustin Zahn just to name a few. In 2015 came what some describe as the coronation gig for any techno DJ in Detroit – a booking at Movement Electronic Music Festival among the world’s techno elite.
2016 saw Anthony release a new EP with Blank Code, welcoming the current year with gigs in Detroit, Colombia for an Official Movement Pre-Party, Minneapolis and a return to Movement Electronic Music Festival at the end of this month, where he is scheduled to play at the Underground Stage as well as at an afterparty at The Works on Saturday night.
