Boston Bun discovered electronic music at 16 while watching music television channels.

Drawn to the distinctive, characteristic and rather leftfield stylings from the likes of Chemical Bros BEST, Detroit Grand Pubahs, and Basement Jaxx – Boston quickly developed a passion for videos with a distinctive edge and began learning to direct videos himself of a similar nature.

While learning and horning his directing skills, his curiosity leaned over to music production and he soon began to produce tracks from his bedroom.

 

From 2012 to 2015 he released four EPs via Ed Banger. Critics praised his rough, distinguishing house sound, dirty bass lines, and emblematic vocals.

 

Boston soon started playing in clubs and festivals all over the world including XOYO, Razzmattaz, Womb, Dour, Montreux, Astropolis, PS1, Pacha and many more.

 

They sent an invitation to him take part in the seminal Boiler Room sessions series; live & direct from Paris. The tracks also gained strong support from fellow DJ’s such as Soulwax, Skream, Duke Dumont, Boys Noize, Erol Alkan and more.

 

Recently, Boston’s production talents have led him to remix songs from the likes of Disciples, Metronomy, The Magician, Riton and Clare Maguire.

 

In 2017, Boston launched his own label called Circa ’99 and released ‘Missing You,’ a nostalgic and beautiful house gems that received the support from Martin Solveig, Tchami, Mercer, The Magician, Danny Howard, Annie Mac and many more…

Diplo’s Major Lazer debuts summer single ‘Make it Hot’ featuring Brazilian superstar Anitta, in association with Bacardi.

 

The song unites Spanish-language vocals from Anitta with the crew’s dancehall-inspired signature sound.

 

The song is the crew’s second teamwork with Anitta following ‘Sue Cara,’ which was the fastest video to have 1 million likes on YouTube and one of the biggest YouTube video launches of 2017 with over 25 million views in its first 24 hours.

 

“It’s amazing when you work in synergy with someone who completes you artistically,” says Anitta. “Having the opportunity to write/compose another song with Major Lazer was really special. We have developed this energy that is similar to being around family and close friends when we work together. It’s good to be able to bounce ideas off each other and that’s something that happens naturally now. I think it’s difficult for anyone to listen to this song and remain still.”

 

Major Lazer is the name of the group’s fictional figurehead, a one-armed, Jamaican Zombie War commando with an experimental Lazer arm and a secret identity as a Trinidadian dancehall club owner, embodying the group’s mission to free the universe with music.

 

With the assistance of his longtime partners, Major Lazer released 2009’s ‘Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do’ and 2013’s ‘Free the Universe’ reaching billions across the globe with their message of world peace.

 

In 2015, Major Lazer returned with ‘Peace Is the Mission,’ this time enlisting friends from across the world to accomplish his goal of making the world smaller by making the party bigger. By bringing their music and dance to every corner of the world, they unify the masses and achieve Major Lazer’s mission of peace.

 

This new era marks the emergence of the Major Lazer character from the beyond (designed by Ferry Guow).

 

Major Lazer has found enlightenment and given up his physical body, returning to spread the message of Lazerism with the help of Diplo, Walshy Fire, and the Lazer Gyals.

 

His message has taken the form of music and his teachings the form of songs for Diplo and Walshy to put down on records. He anointed the Lazer Gyals as high priestesses of dance. Together they will spread his message near and far.

 

The global superstar Diplo is at Major Lazer’s helm. As one of pop’s most in-demand producers, Diplo has worked with Beyonce, Madonna, Robyn, M.I.A. and many more. He unveiled a new country project, Thomas Wesley, and its first track, ‘So Long,’ featuring Nashville superstar Cam, followed by a performance at Stagecoach. Further recent releases include a deep house ‘Higher Ground EP’ and the debut of a brand-new show at his Coachella headline set, and the ‘Europa EP’ for which Diplo hand selected a cast of rising European artists.

 

Diplo also exercised his collaborative spirit with the psychedelic supergroup LSD with Sia and Labrinth, streamed over one billion times to date, and the Grammy-winning house project Silk City with Mark Ronson. With three albums under their belt, Major Lazer continues to fight for peace and freedom through music.

Interview with Catherine Duc

 

 

Share your life story with us.

I started learning keyboard and classical piano and became interested in ambient and world music in high school.

 

My first composition was an ambient groove song with Incan influences.

 

Since then, I’ve been writing in styles that interest me at that time including Celtic, film music, EDM and Downtempo.

Press release for my remix ‘Blind to You (Stargazing Remix) for London singer/songwriter Ben Hobbs- Link

Catherine Duc – Website

.

.

.

 

List the names of those that have supported you so far in your music career and use this opportunity to thank them.

Firstly, I’d like to thank my mother for giving me the opportunity to learn music and buying my first keyboard for me.

 

There have been many people along the way including my favourite music artists (who I’ve been very lucky to get in contact with or meet), music teachers, collaborators, other musicians, music supervisors, producers, engineers, music writers, and playlist curators.

 

It would take too long to name every person and I’d probably miss someone from the list, so if you think you’ve helped me in my musical journey, I’d like to thank you. 🙂

.

.

.

Narrate your experience while recording in the studio or while touring.

I work in my home studio most of the time – either on my solo work, collaborations with other artists (which are usually done long distance over the internet) and commissions.

 

A memorable studio experience for me was recording at Studio City Sound in LA with other members of The Recording Academy.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your songwriting.

I usually think of melodic ideas when I’m either doing day to day things and am not working on music, or am just playing around on my keyboard.  I usually arrange most of the song in my mind before recording anything.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your future projects.

I’m currently working on a deep dark progressive house track for a music production company in Los Angeles.  After that, I have a remix for a melodic progressive house artist in the queue.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you are doing to increase your fan base.

I’m continuing to submit my music to e-zines, blogs, radio stations, and music curators.

.

.

.

Tell us that point in time you wanted to give up on your music career.

I’ve actually never had that experience – maybe it’s because I’ve always had a non-music related day job.

.

.

.

Go into detail on how you make your instrumentation or melody.

For instrumentation, I listen to a lot of music in the genre I’m composing in order to get ideas of the instruments, sounds, and textures used.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your complete understanding of music licensing.

I’ve read a lot of music business books (including a 600+ page written by a music business lawyer – very tough to get through!) so I’ve learned quite a bit over the years.  Also, the practical experience of getting my music licensed has helped my understanding of this area.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite genre of music.

I enjoy listening to a lot of different genres from ambient, electronic, world, classical, film score and pop.  My favourite genre changes all the time but at the moment, I’m really enjoying Melodic Progressive House as it’s really uplifting and Chillstep.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the theme of most of your songs.

Most of my music is instrumental and is evocative of a time or place – either real or imagined.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on this song.

I came across Ben’s music on Spotify on the ‘Discover Weekly’ playlist where Spotify recommends music based on previous artists you’ve listened to.  I contacted Ben on Facebook and suggested a remix and then decided to remix ‘Blind to You’ from his EP ‘Blue Sky.’

.

.

.

 

Discuss digital distribution and streaming.

Streaming has overtaken digital sales but the royalty rate is quite low (I think it’s around 0.02 cents on Spotify compared to songs on iTunes that sell for about $1).  I think YouTube is becoming more popular for streaming.

.

.

.

Tell us numerous ways that artists can boost their revenue.

Apart from music sales, other avenues include synch licensing, live performances, funding campaigns, music commissions and working in music-related jobs such as a session musician.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on self-training and enrolling in an educational institution to study music.

This is going to be different for everyone but personally, I found a mix of both worked for me.

 

On the educational institution side, I studied classical piano under the Australian Music Education Board and also a film music diploma with the London School of Creative Studies.

 

On the self-training side, I read a lot of music books – from music business to orchestration to mixing.

 

I also listen to music education podcasts and watch videos on production on YouTube and Sonic Academy.

.

.

.

Go on at length on what it takes to write a hit song.

I wish I had the formula. 🙂  I’ve never had a Top 40 song so I’m not the best person to ask!

.

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

It’s my real name. 🙂

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

‘Blind to You (Stargazing Remix)’ – When I do remixes for other artists, I like to use a word or phrase from their lyrics in the remix title.  This comes from the line ‘stargazing won’t save you.’

R3HAB

DJ and producer R3HAB continues to take electronic music to a higher level with his groundbreaking production.

A globetrotting talent hailed by the likes of Forbes and Billboard Magazine as one of the most iconic electronic DJs and music makers, Fadil El Ghoul has spent the last seven years garnering hundreds of millions of streams while charging ahead on the international club circuit, all without a record label to lean on.

 

R3HAB’s debut album TROUBLE marked a breakthrough for the Dutch native upon its release in the fall of 2017.

 

The LP has garnered over five hundred million streams to date. Singles “I Just Can’t”, “Trouble” and “Icarus” attracted global attention and coverage upon their release and serve as a confirmation of R3HAB’s competence to take up a more elegant, pop-driven sound, while retaining his quintessential Dutch roots.

 

With his second full-length studio collection, “The Wave”, R3HAB continues to push the boundaries of dance music.

 

The collection has racked up over three hundred and fifty million streams and counting, with tracks “Rumors”, “Ain’t That Why”, “Hold On Tight”, “The Wave”, and “Lullaby” all shooting into the Billboard top 100 dance/electronic charts.

 

His album continues to assure fans that R3HAB can conquer any electronic genre as he continues to cement himself as one of the most successful independent artists in the world.

 

Julie Bergan

Julie Bergan has justified herself to be one of the greatest live acts in Norway.

 

With her energetic personality, powerful vocals, and explosive performance style, she blasts your assumptions into outer space.

 

Bergan struck a multi-year deal with Warner Music Norway straight after completing high school and has worked hard since then to achieve her goals.

 

So far the brilliant star has garnered over three hundred and twenty million streams on Spotify, with several of her tracks reaching platinum status (Guilt Trip, Blackout, Incapable, Arigato).

 

In February 2018, she dropped her 2x platinum debut album Turn On The Lights.

 

Bergan has performed all over the world, having support shows for Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa and Alan Walker.

 

She performed the 100m global smash Ignite at world stages like Coachella and EDC Japan with Alan Walker.

 

Julie got nominated for Spellemann (Norwegian Grammy) for ‘Song of the year’, picked up ‘Breakthrough artist of the year’ from the Norwegian songwriting association for Arigato, headlined multiple Norwegian festivals, and toured Norway to sold out venues with both the ‘Arigato Tour’ and the ‘It’s LIT Tour – Part 1 and 2.’

 

Julie Bergan is a genius to check out.

Marvelous British DJ and record maker Jonas Blue teams up with Danish singer Theresa Rex to drop a tuneful song entitled “What I Like About You.”

 

Jonas made the song. He penned the song with Lene Dissing and Bjørnskov.

 

The song portrays infatuation. It’s a turbulent relationship between a lady that wants to be in a relationship with her new boyfriend but her family members and friends are against her wish to date the guy. But she turns rebellious to pursue the guy because she loves him.

 

The audience will relate to the video because practically everyone has been in the plight of loving someone and your parents are intimidating you from seeing that person but you keep insisting because of the influence of love.

 

The lyrics of the song reveal it all, obvious to figure out and know what the song is all about.

 

The dramatic video follows the footsteps of the lyrics by setting forth the story behind the song from the start.

 

Jonas is not a newcomer in making a hit song with an accomplished vocalist.

 

He has just added another hit song to his credits.

Mahir CK (Mahir Can Küçük) grew up in Turkey and his private teachers in Turkey were Timur Selçuk and Randy Esen.

 

After receiving a degree in industrial design, he graduated from Berklee in 2017, studying contemporary writing and production. His private teacher was Steven Santoro.

 

The awards he received for his performances and arrangements in western contemporary and his cultural music, and his projects was covered by major Turkish newspapers’ Hürriyet, Habertürk, Milliyet, and the music magazine Andante.

 

Besides being a writer, arranger and producer, Küçük is a vocalist who features western contemporary music, Turkish classical, traditional, and contemporary music in his repertoire.

 

He is able to sing microtonally, plays baglama, bass guitar, piano, guitar, and hand percussion.

 

He has shared the stage with artists like Aynur, Simon Shaheen, Tigran Hamasyan, Antonio Serrano and also performed an arrangement for Neil Portnow, Lionel Richie, Todd Rundgren, Lucinda Williams, Shin Joong Hyun in Agganis Arena, 2017.

 

On June 2018, Mahir debuted his popular music identity “Mahir CK”. Meanwhile he is working with Turkish pop artists from İstanbul as an arranger, songwriter and mixing engineer.

Tell us what your fans are saying about your music.

Its mood surprised them, and they convinced me to have the music video include subtle erotic elements.

 

Some people who shared said it makes them strut in the street with their headphones on.

.

.

.

Tell us the factors you consider in choosing a song as your favourite.

Black Moon’s Shade’s production takes the lyrics further than its sadness.

 

The drop section vocals were musically such a strong idea by the lyricist Blake Johnston, I couldn’t dare to not include it.

 

Usually I like songs that touch the hearts, that’s how I choose songs to finish and release, but Black Moon’s Shade’s vibe had a surprise turn for me.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of producers you will collaborate if you have the chance.

FINNEAS is a genius, as a producer and a lyricist; and I love Ali P’s productions as well.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of the songwriters you will collaborate if you have the chance.

Jordan Rakei and FINNEAS are some of my favorite songwriters, but my first choice would be Michael Jackson if he was still with us.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your favourite TV show and state your reason.

I loved After Life; it was so real, soulful. It reflects life and empowers goodness without any lame or cheesy emotional abuse.

.

.

.

Tell us your best mood to create a song.

Being in a completely neutral mood is useless. Passion is the primary material for me, it can be for a political, emotional, ethical reason, and the result can be anger, love, heartbreak, the artistic outcome becomes sincere and effective.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of artists you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

Rosalia and Kehlani’s music are timeless and amazing.

.

.

.

Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.

I was told it was going to be terrifying but it felt so natural to be on stage, I even love to talk in between songs.

 

The studio is a different situation, being in a booth, so isolated is not the best feeling, but still performing feels home.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you approach songwriting.

I like to write the lyrics first (or compose after the lyricist provides me the lyrics), because that makes sure the lyrics are reflected by the music.

 

I write many pages of personal letters to gather my thoughts and feelings and that helps me write the lyrics in a song form that I desire.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on blending genres or experimenting with sound.

I never intend to create music on a single genre, so the blending happens naturally, consciously and subconsciously between genres that live in my mind and soul. Maybe it would commercially make more sense to blend as little as possible, but that’s not in my artistic expression much, but I’m not against it in anyway.

.

.

.

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

It’s fine, art is a very personal thing.

.

.

.

Elaborate on what compels you to sing.

Hearing my voice and expressing feeling, and very rarely to impress people.

.

.

.

Tell us the comparison between digital recording and analogue recording.

Analogue recording has its warmth but it lacks flexibility, thus I prefer digital but using the best software and equipment that I have access to.

.

.

.

Tell us how you record your vocals.

I record demo recordings at home, no isolation or anything, but then I go to the studio after I make the decisions. I record with two different microphones at the same time, and I check which one sounds better when I get home.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the software you used mostly for recording.

I use Logic Pro X most of the time; I rarely use Cubase and Pro Tools. I have Ableton Live but I don’t really use it.

 .

.

.

 

Share your press release with us.

The story behind the lyrics of Black Moon’s Shade was co-developed with the ballad-rock artist Blake Johnston – vocalist, guitarist and songwriter of Casual Cubs.

 

Lyrics were written and finalized by Blake Johnston. The initial emotional direction of the lyrics soon transformed into a positive outlook when Johnston came up with the “Ooh”s and “Aah”s in what turned out to be the drop section.

 

Black Moon’s Shade’s melodic and harmonic accompaniments are light while the rhythmic and thematic elements of the song are dominant, placing the song somewhere between Synthwave and Nu Disco.

 

Mahir CK remarks, “Whenever I shared the song with a friend while walking down the street, their walk would turn into a strut, and their facial expression started looking almost like they were narcissistic for some reason…”

 

While the song has emotional lyrics, the arrangement contains hardcore 80s electronic pop and 70s disco elements with an uplifting mood.

 

The synth solo and the vocal hook of the drop section give a kind of escapism and euphoria that is very rare in today’s music!

Lyrics:   Black Moon’s Shade

 

[Verse 1]

My eyes rest easy on your crescent lips,

But each smile brings only sadness…

Hope was a sliver of light swallowed by this total eclipse

 

Every word we say is shadowed by fate

Waiting to escape the black moon’s shade

Every word we share is shadowed by fate

Waiting to escape the black moon’s shade

 

[Chorus]

Aah ahh ooh ooh

Aah ahh ooh ooh (black moon’s shade)

Aah ahh ooh ooh

Aah ahh ooh ooh (black moon’s shade)

 

[Verse 2]

Your soul shines brighter than a shooting star

But I found your light much too late…

Soon you’ll be catching flight just as I am starting to fall

 

Every moment we share I’m pulled into you

Waiting to collide with certain gloom

 

[Chorus]

Aah ahh ooh ooh

Aah ahh ooh ooh (black moon’s shade)

Aah ahh ooh ooh

Aah ahh ooh ooh (black moon’s shade)

 

[Bridge]

Like two comets

Soaring towards each other

Our paths were only meant to cross

But not run side by side…

 

[Solo]

 

[Chorus]

Aah ahh ooh ooh

Aah ahh ooh ooh (black moon’s shade)

Aah ahh ooh ooh

Aah ahh ooh ooh (black moon’s shade)

Discuss your music career.

I started playing music in 2006 at the age of 16 as a DJ in France to Rabat and Varna to name a few.

 

During this period, I found myself playing with house and hip-hop favorites such as Laurent Wolf, DJ Snake, Big Ali, The Freshmakers and many others.

 

In 2017 I invented Sancii and came out with my first EP entitled ‘Night all day.’
