FEAT. ALEXANDRA BADOI – I’LL BE FINE

SUNLOUNGER 
FEAT.  ALEXANDRA BADOI – I’LL BE FINEUnder Sunlounger – the most renowned of the Roger Shah pseudonyms, the German producer/composer presents the first single to be drawn from the ‘Balearic Beauty’ album. Featuring the transcendent vocals of Romanian songstress Alexandra Badoi, ‘I’ll Be Fine’ delivers the perfect summer 2013 summation.

Ranged across four different versions and six mixes and edits, ‘I’ll Be Fine’ abounds with classic Sunlounger touches and moments. In its Album Mix form it shimmers with melodic lilt – driven by Roger’s coolly running beats & percussion lines, swimming with elegiac note arrangements and further intoxicated by Badoi’s vocal lament.

The Roger Shah Rework of ‘I’ll Be Fine’ is the picture-perfect club-floor transfer. Rolling out deep bass and tougher edged distortion, it sets up a progressive-trance sound-storm. Cutting, looping and editing ‘I’ll Be Fine’s vocal parts, Shah effects a slow-burn release of the song – one that break-side fully erupts with striking impact.

ANDY DUGUID ON THE EDGE

ANDY DUGUID ON THE EDGEThe archetypal producer risk-taker, Andy Duguid is a man on the cutting edge. His independent in-studio approach has placed him in a coveted position – his music sought and respected by the DJ underground and establishment alike. With his debut album, 2008’s ‘Believe’, the Scotsman hardwired his reputation as a skilled sound-shaper – a name that came quick to the lips of those in the know. Now, five years on and after an uncountable number of late-night studio hours, the follow up to ‘Believe’ is here. Andy is about to push those limits once again.

With spinners bible DJ Mag last month dubbing him „the martinet of ‘doin’-it-different“, ‘On The Edge’ sees Andy passage house hinterlands, progressive atmospheres, harmonic trance highs and all points between. Featuring vocal turns from Julie Thompson, Jaren, Audrey Gallagher, Seri and other leading light EDM singer-songwriters, ‘On The Edge’ brings 12 new pieces of music and 12 new reasons to embrace the matchless sound of Duguid.

 Every one of ‘On The Edge’s tracks gleam with a lavished, intensive, almost OCD production attention. The vocals crush the wonk-wonk tropes of commercial trance soundly under-heel and unusual, attention-grab track trajectories appear when you least expect them. Some fresh air has been breathed here.” – MIXMAG October Album of the Month

In Conversation With Richard Durand on ‘In Search of Sunrise 11 – Las Vegas’

In Conversation With Richard Durand on 'In Search of Sunrise 11 – Las Vegas'   In June of this year, Richard Durand presented the eleventh excursion of the In Search of Sunrise series that he conceived with Myon & Shane54, dedicated to ‘The City of Sin': Las Vegas. As tradition demands, this brand new volume also features an In Search of Sunrise anthem, which Richard produced with Eximinds. Finally available in its original, full length, the single release also features the brand new Organic Remix. 

There’s much more to the track than only the title, especially since it represents an entire mix-compilation. As Richard recently stated: “With electronic music in the United States having changed so momentously over the last couple of years, there really was only one choice when it came to the country for 2013’s ‘Search’. I’ve selected Las Vegas to be the focal point, as it’s a place where I’ve seen the sun come up many times over. It’s a celebration of everything that’s great musically about L.V. and the USA at large.” 

Richard Durand reveals some interesting aspects on ‘In Search of Sunrise 11 – Las Vegas‘ :
