Multi-Award Winning Producer Gregg Field Tracked Two Grammy-Nominated Albums at United Recording

Working alongside producer Nick Patrick and recording engineer Don Murray, Field served as drummer on Seal’s groundbreaking album, which tracked songs in United Recording’s Studio B and recorded vocals in Studio A. The album, marking Seal’s return to the music scene, combined his unique voice with some of the greatest jazz cuts and swing classics ever written. “Standards” is currently available on Republic Records.

For the critically-acclaimed album, “All About That Basie,” a gathering of legendary artists came together to join the Count Basie Orchestra to celebrate iconic musical influences through the years. Field once again worked with Murray at United Recording as producer and drummer on the album.

As a former Basie drummer, Field noted that the Basie sound is prevalent within the album. “Basie’s band throughout the years was able to successfully cover hits of the era with their sound, and as part of the new album we have continued that tradition including hits from legends like Stevie Wonder and Leonard Cohen, as well artists as contemporary as Adele,” said Field. “All About That Basie” is available on Concord Jazz.

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to take place on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Your EDM Guest Mix: Trei’s Newest Tracks So Heavy You Might Get ‘The Bends’

Your EDM Guest Mix: Trei’s Newest Tracks So Heavy You Might Get ‘The Bends’

Trei has been a mainstay with Viper Recordings since 2013 but it’s been a few years since he released solo tracks with them, preferring to lend his brand of emotive yet hard-hitting DnB to compilations and collabs. Last month he did release some solo jams on Viper, however, in the form of “Fools Rush” and “The Bends.” It doesn’t hurt that he has two more new tracks out on the Viper 2019 Annual: a compilation with Ekko & Sidetrack called “Luddites” and his own solo track called “Out There.”

Suffice it to say that for this guest mix he has bestowed upon Your EDM, Trei could have simply laid down his own recent Viper tracks back to back and everyone would have been more than happy. That is not the case however, and in fact this little 20-minute mix includes 15 tracks of varying genres and intensities. He’s covered all the great music that has come out or is coming out this month, including his own tracks but also featuring Insomniax’s banger “Foghorn,” Crissy Criss’s “Shockwave” with Malux and Erb ‘n’ Dub and Rido’s “Blueprint” with Joe Ford. There’s also some fun wild cards like a track from Vowel on Bad Taste, multiple Prototypes tracks and some seemingly random tracks from Dub Elements. It’s a power-packed little mix full of surprises and emotional ups and downs.

We won’t say much more other than this mix is a need to listen to hear all the bangers that are out and up in the next month or so. It’s also a lesson in how to put all these seemingly opposed tracks together in a subgenre mashup mix that defies gravity.

All of Trei’s newest tracks on Viper and otherwise are available on his Beatport page and clips are available on Soundcloud or full streams on Spotify. Don’t forget to pick up the Viper Annual as well, out now.

Kaiserdisco a Christian Smith hvězdami festivalu Mácháč

Kaiserdisco a Christian Smith hvězdami festivalu Mácháč
V pátek k Máchovo jezeru zamíří Christian Smith – skvělý švédský producent a DJ, který nemá rád elitářství na taneční scéně, pomáhá novým talentům a sociální sítě považuje za nutné zlo. Pokud znáte jeho tvorbu a pozici na techno scéně, tak jistě budete souhlasit, že si takové soudy může dovolit. Mimo svůj label Tronic vydává nejčastěji u Drumcode, Plus8 Records nebo Cocoon Recordings. Velmi kladnou kritiku sklidilo jeho poslední album “Synergy” z roku 2017, kde všech 12 skladeb tvořil ve spolupráci s jinými producenty a s každým z nich přímo v jejich studiu v domovské zemi. Sobotními zahraničními hosty budou pánové Frederic Berger a Patrick Buck aka Kaiserdisco, kteří více jak deset let chrlí kvalitu na labelech jako Drumcode, Suara, Tronic a KD. Po dvou stylově pestřejších albech přišli v roce 2017 s albem “Another Dimension”, které je s jedenácti skladbami naopak poctou striktně klubovému technu. Nechme se tedy překvapit, co si pro nás tito rodáci z Hamburku na svou premiéru u Máchova jezera připraví. Určitě to ale bude stát za to!Předprodej vstupenek probíhá exkluzivně v síti Ticketmaster.www.festival-machac.cz

Pill Testing Debate Intensifies Following Death Of FOMO Music Festival Attendee

Pill Testing Debate Intensifies Following Death Of FOMO Music Festival Attendee

Sadly, another person has passed away following FOMO Music Festival in Sydney. The outcry for pill testing has intensified in the wake of Alexandra Ross-King’s death.

The 19-year-old was partying with friends in 35-degree (95 Fahrenheit) heat when she was take to the medical tent. Ross-King was then taken to a hospital, but could not be revived.

This is the fifth death that has taken place in NSW over the past four months. The heated debate surrounding pill testing has once again ignited. The young woman’s family has even asked Premier Gladys Berejiklian to please consider.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison spoke out on the issue in saying, “We don’t want to create a permissive culture around drugs in this country. We have to remember these are illegal drugs.”

“I am saying of course all options get considered but ultimately you have to get the balance right on this. This is a state matter and I am not going to complicate that any by offering commentary on which is the best option because they have to make those judgment, but my heart does go out to those parents as Gladys’s heart goes out to those parents as well.”

Berejiklian was also recently quoted in saying, “I want to make sure we reduce deaths and my worry is pill testing could actually have the opposite effect.”

It’s believed that Ross-King died after taking MDMA pills, toxicology report pending. She was just one of 11 taken to the hospital over the weekend.

At FOMO music festival, more than 11,000 people were in attendance. Police reportedly searched 146 people — of which, 54 were found in possession of drugs and three were charged with supply.

NSW Health has issued a warning for MDMA and other party drugs following the outbreak of overdoses.
