Global Vibe Radio 083 feat. Kaelan

Nico Campanella was born in Putignano (Italy), first getting in touch with music when, at the age of 11 he began studying the piano and, shorty after, became involved with various local bands.

His love and deep passion for everything concerning music later expanded to electronic sounds, becoming influenced by artists such as Basic Channel, Robert Hood, Substance et Vainqueur, Derrick May, Jeff Mills and many others.

In the last few years his necessity to propose a multifaceted vision of electronic music made it necessary to create new projects, including that of “Kaelan”, which has since becomehis main alias for techno. Under his side project “2030” he proposes electro-inspired music, while “Ixm” is his pseudo for dub techno sounds.

Kaelan is the owner of Subosc and co-owner of the Ranges imprint. The former aims to propose modern and classy techno music, while the latter is a tribute to reminiscent dub techno sounds. Currently, Kaelan is working on projects with some of the most known techno european labels, such as Construct Re-form, CLFT, Monnom Black.

She started at her dad’s popular nightclub in Brazil at the age of 14 and after some difficult times she saw her  hard work finally start to pay off. A bucket list item of hers was to play at Movement in Detroit, the iconic festival held yearly in the birth place of the genre that she loves so much, and she did just that this past Memorial Day Weekend.

Marco Faraone: The 5 Hottest Records in My Bag

Marco Faraone is a prolific and versatile producer whose incendiary live sets have earned him the attention of all the right people.

Hailing from Tuscany, Italy, Faraone has developed a worldwide reputation as an extremely skilled producer, with releases ranging from the warm analogue house grooves of his most recent Moon Harbour EP ‘Next Level’, to the relentless, hypnotic techno of his latest EP for On Edge Society, ‘Black Air’. It’s thanks to this versatility that Faraone has released on so many respected labels in a relatively short period of time – Drumcode, Desolat, Be As One, Sci+Tec, Moda Black, Holic Trax, Get Physical and Truesoul have all provided a home for Faraone’s productions.

Faraone is just as a busy as a DJ, with his popularity back home in Italy plain to see for everyone, thanks to a 3 year residency and counting under his belt at the famed Tenax club in Florence and gigs literally all around the world, including some of the most coveted clubs and festival stages.

More recently Marco Faraone has contributed a wickedly atmospheric track called “Desert Crash” to Drumcode’s latest A-Sides Vol.6 compilation, which is available for purchase via Beatport.

In light of the recent compilation, and summer gigs at Music On, Tomorrowland and Elrow, amongst many others, we had a chat with Marco and asked him to share the current 5 hottest tracks in his record bag.
