Shaun Jacobs: “Rollin’” formulates a gritty chart-topping sound

started out playing drums at a very young age, but it was only when he turned 15 and his older brother thought it would be good for him to learn more than one instrument that his love for guitar, singing and songwriting was born. Growing up in a family where his dad was an opera singer and his brothers’ able musical craftsmen as well, Shaun soon started writing, recording and producing his own music. It wasn’t long before the South African artist gained traction in his home country, winning the SAMA 2014 Adult Contemporary Album of the Year, as well

Samplified: Extensive high quality sample libraries

You’ve written a killer song. The lyrics and music are flowing but there’s just something missing. Maybe it’s a guitar strum, riff or pluck. It could be a thumping bassline or some shimmering keys. More often than not, it’s a groovy drum beat. You know that any these would be the perfect complement to your newly written potential hit, but how can you get that sound for your song? If you’re a beginner, it’s a tough ride to create that professional recording sound at home. On the other hand, if you’re a professional you’re usually hard pushed for time to

All Atomic – metaphysics melds with the spirit of dance

DJ/Producer All Atomic, from Bristol United Kingdom, grew up around music and was mixing tunes at nine years old and was soon deejaying at illegal raves. His music is a fusion of his influences: “You have to have an open mind when making music,” says All Atomic. “Let the music guide you, it will tell you what it needs you to do.” Persuaded by artist and producer Aniofades, All Atomic sent a demo to the Pink Dolphin Music Ltd label, and got signed up. A heap of well-received releases followed, with the producer bringing his classically unique sound to the

Roddan: “Don’t Be Troubled” – so impeccably penned!

Singer-songwriter, Roddan’s third and current release, “Don’t Be Troubled” is a follow-up to his 2017 EP, “Bleed 432”, and his 2016 Album, “Music House”. The recording features organic instrumentation, including guitar, piano, violin, cello, piano, and some great harmonies from Eliza Gilkyson.

“Hi-Bias 25 Years – The Origin of House” – from Canada’s most successful dance indie label

For an independent label to survive twenty-five years in the volatile world of the music industry is an impressive feat. But Hi-Bias hasn’t just survived, it has thrived. And that is an achievement worthy of serious celebration. The founder Nick Fiorucci’s background as an internationally-renowned club DJ stood him in good stead as a dance music label head. He first started as a DJ in Toronto at 17, lying about his age to get club gigs. One of these was at Affairs, a dance music institution in the late ‘80s. The seeds of Hi-Bias were sown when Fiorucci befriended another DJ there, Michael Ova. The label was an instant smash. Their debut release was the single “Get Into The Music” by DJ’S Rule.

In 1999 the label’s driving force, Nick Fiorucci, was inducted into the Canadian “Dance” Hall of Fame. The Hall, dedicated to the pioneers and builders of Canadian music, recognized Hi-Bias as Canada’s most successful dance indie label.

To commemorate the Label’s 25 years it is releasing Hi-Bias 25 Years – The Origin of House collection which features 25 hand-picked label gems spanning the labels history all digitally remastered along with 2 exclusive new previously unreleased singles all showcasing the label’s fusion of passion, commitment to quality and innovation. The release date is set for May 5, 2015.

Hi-bias-Nick-FiorucciIf you’re a fan of house music, this album is a must have. If you know house is not just music, it’s a feeling, then treat yourself to the best, and bring down the walls with this. The music makes you move your body, sets you free. It’s perfect for those reunion parties, or, just for partying in general, with a bit of nostalgia.

Hi-Bias 25 Years – The Origin of House contains a few truly legendary figures in the universe of underground contemporary dance music, who revolutionized the art of the DJ with their soulful and eclectic sets, as well as consummate flair as both innovative remixers and visionary turntable artists.

Nick Fiorucci himself was revered for the pulsing dance floor magic he created as a DJ, merging underground hits with popular classics of every genre to take the communal dance experience to new heights. A seminal figure in both the club-defined 80’s and house-centric ’90s, his innovations reshaped dance music itself and influenced many DJ’s who would follow.

Chances are if you’re a seasoned disco, club or house junkie, you will want to have many of these tracks in your collection. For those new to this music, it’s an absolute Godsend. Compared to other anthologies, the songs on here are earthy, with plenty of bump and groove.

This set is an excellent representation of the evolution of house music over the last 25 years. It’s amazing how music can transport a person through space and time. These songs bring back memories of when House music was just “dance” music and everyone of all genders and races, danced and had a great time together!

It isn’t often we get to hear the actual true grass roots of any music movements and when we are in the throes of such a rare and special moment in time we can’t fathom how significant the experience is, and it may be decades before we finally realize it. Hi-Bias 25 Years – The Origin of House and Nick Fiorucci have made this possible NOW. As far as I’m concerned, they could even make a movie out of this soundtrack and it’s history!
