'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from GALAXI: November 25, 2015

On WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015, STUNNA closes out the month with an exclusive installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this week's program, we're treated to a guest mix from GALAXI in celebration of his debut album '2015' that was recently released on ADVECTION MUSIC.

The 'GOLDEN STATE,' better known as CALIFORNIA, is host to a true visionary in the music world known by the name GALAXI. Raised on a mixture of Jazz, Soul, R&B and Hip Hop, his musical interest was ignited at an early age. During his school years he was trained in various instruments including the saxophone, piano, guitar, and his primary interest, the drums. As he excelled in his musical talents, his skills as a drummer led him to compete in numerous competitions where he went on to win many awards and recognizable achievements with his school band. Furthermore, he has also played the drums in jazz trios and jazz ensembles, as well as played alongside his friend, the world-famous THOMAS PRIDGEN of THE MEMORIALS.

GALAXI has been influenced by many styles of music: everything from the electro-cinematic sounds of movie composer JERRY GOLDSMITH right down to the adventuresome scores of video games. “I’ve always enjoyed all the elements of music, but it’s the fundamentals such as the instruments and music production that I am most interested in.” In the mid 90′s, after collecting countless tapes, CDs, and vinyl, he added another selection to his musical catalog: electronic music, with its many genres of downtempo, breakbeat, techno, ambient, and house. It was with this new discovery that he came across another sound that would forever change his life and redirect his career goals. “I remember the first time hearing DRUM+BASS. It was shocking that there was a genre of music that incorporated the same drum patterns and music vibes I used to play in my jazz band days. At that point, I knew I had to be part of electronic music.” After collecting many compilations and DJ mixes from the electro scene, GALAXI decided to learn how to create his own music. Motivated, he built his own in home studio and began the assembling the sounds of GALAXI.

DRUM+BASS has played a major role in GALAXI’s music production. “I used to spend all day listening to CDs by LTJ BUKEM, RONI SIZE, SQUAREPUSHER, GOLDIE, and PHOTEK, just to name a few.” At the time, there were a few DRUM+BASS nights hosted in CALIFORNIA, but being too young to enter clubs, he could not visit his favorite DJs live. Undeterred, he bought his own turntables, and with the help of the internet, stayed in touch with the D+B scene as he listened to UK radio shows such as BBC RADIO 1.

In 2002, GALAXI met UK producer and DJ TIDAL through his early ADVECTION website. “When speaking to TIDAL, it was like I was talking to my lost brother! We had everything in common musically.” They expressed various ideas with one another about the past, present, and future of music. After years of exploring the music scene together, they decided to launch ADVECTION MUSIC together. It was a pivotal beginning of pushing the sounds they created and enjoyed.

GALAXI has shared his musical talent with many artists and performed at multiple events. In 2005, he was booked to open for LTJ BUKEM at 'PROGRESSION SESSIONS' in BIRMINGHAM, UK. “DJing in the UK for the first time was an honor. That was the first time in my life I saw so many people love the music I created.” Performing live in the UK led to GALAXI being booked at more events worldwide. From CHRIS INPERSPECTIVE’s 'TECHNICALITY' night in LONDON to LOS ANGELES’ club nights at 'MUSE,' DJing became his next greatest project in his music life. With releases on ASC's COVERT OPERATIONS label, such as ‘LEAVE' (ASC remix) and ‘AURORA,' GALAXI began to go back into the studio work on music. With TIDAL, the production duo “DEEP GEMINI” was formed. While creating different tracks together, an ADVECTION mini-tour was done which included events in SAN FRANCISCO, CHICAGO, and NEW YORK along with SOUL OBJECTIVE, MC SMILEE, and the late JAY LE ROC. This was the foundation for ADVECTION MUSIC to take its course.

Through the years since, GALAXI has moved deftly between a number of electronic music genres, and in the final quarter of this year, his debut album '2015' has surfaced on ADVECTION MUSIC and it showcases a gifted producer's acumen for creating cutting-edge music with atmosphere. Join us this session as GALAXI presents a special guest mix featuring his own creations and music currently doing the rounds in his DJ sets. Tune in!!

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from CENTASPIKE and INDIDJINOUS: October 7, 2015

Kicking off an exciting new month of programs, on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2015, STUNNA presents another exclusive installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this week's episode, we're treated to a guest mix from two producers who recently teamed up to create the forthcoming "PRIMORDIAL RESISTANCE" album on TECH ITCH Recordings: CENTASPIKE and INDIDJINOUS.

This unlikely duo formed across the Pacific ocean to create a unique strain of tribal, alien, tech funk. CENTASPIKE hails from CANBERRA (the capital of AUSTRALIA) and INDIDJINOUS (who graced 'THE GREENROOM' show a few years back) hails from the SAN FRANCISCO bay area of Northern CALIFORNIA. Each has over 10 years of production experience with many releases on a variety of international labels such as SUBTLE AUDIO, OBSCENE, PINECONE MOONSHINE, BARCODE, and DUBKRAFT. Ironically, INDIDJINOUS is the one who plays the AUSTRALIAN aboriginal wind instrument known as the didjeridu, which is used in their productions as well as during live performances.

Originally meeting through SOUNDCLOUD, the two began their partnership with two mutual remixes in early 2012. Pleased with the results, another remix EP soon followed, all of which were quickly signed. This success inspired two new full collaborations, 'SPLICED' and 'OMINOUS MYSTERY,' and spawned a vile new breed of future/primitive sci-fi TECHSTEP DRUM+BASS. Both collabs were immediately signed by JUNGLE/DRUMFUNK label SUBTLE AUDIO Recordings and featured on the compilation CD SUBTLE AUDIO Volume III.

The chemistry and originality of those collabs sparked the creation of a 10 track album entitled "PRIMORDIAL RESISTANCE" which is set to release on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9th on the revered TECH ITCH Recordings imprint. CENTASPIKE is currently making his inaugural visit to the UNITED STATES and he and INDIDJINOUS recently celebrated their album's impending release by performing at the venerable DYSTOPIA event in OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA. The pair showcased the album's tunes and many new creations by spinning alongside each other and the crowd was also treated to live didjeridu by INDIDJINOUS. As an added bonus to herald the release of their "PRIMORDIAL RESISTANCE" album, the two will be heading off to ENGLAND together for another release show.

Join us this session as CENTASPIKE and INDIDJINOUS unveil a very special guest mix created exclusively for 'THE GREENROOM' in support of their album. Tune in!!

'THE GREENROOM' Spotlight Mix on PARADOX: August 26, 2015

On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26, 2015, STUNNA closes out the month with a very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio and features the landmark 25th installment in the artist 'SPOTLIGHT' Mix series. With past long-form programs featuring the productions of artists ASC, BACHELORS OF SCIENCE, DAVE OWEN, DIRRRTY B/BLUE MOTION, DUOSCIENCE, FURNEY, ICR, KJELL, LENZMAN, METHOD ONE, mSdoS, NAIBU (two volumes), NUSENSE, SABURUKO, SOL. ID, SPECIFIC, STYLE CONTROL, SUBMORPHICS (two volumes), THE FIX/COUNTERWEIGHT, THEORY, TIDAL, and WILL MILES, we hit the quarter century mark this show as we turn our attention to one of electronic music's hardest working producers: PARADOX.

Producing original music since the early 1990s on his trusty COMMODORE computer, PARADOX (aka DEV PANDYA) truly needs no introduction to any seasoned connoisseur of the 'DRUMFUNK' brand of DRUM+BASS. Recording under a myriad of monikers including 'ALASKA,' 'ALASKA + PARADOX,' 'BROWN,' 'THE BROWN ASSASSIN,' 'DEV MIXRACE,' and 'PARADOX,' DEV has stretched his wings by spanning many tempos and genres under dance music's ever-changing climate. With a steadfast approach to creating new beat patterns out of classic, and often unearthed/forgotten drum breaks from Funk, Jazz, and obscure music sources, PARADOX has produced and released a staggering amount of music to date.

Along with running his own labels PARADOX MUSIC, ARCTIC MUSIC, OUTSIDER MUSIC, and ESOTERIC, PARADOX has released original music and remixes on esteemed imprints such as: METALHEADZ, REINFORCED, GOOD LOOKING, SECRET OPERATIONS, RENEGADE HARDWARE, SAMURAI, CRITICAL, HORIZONS, HOSPITAL, VIBEZ, CERTIFICATE 18, C.I.A., OFFSHORE, and PARTISAN. He's also seen a long and fruitful career collaborating with talented artists among the likes of: SEBA, NUCLEUS, DJ TRAX, ROBERT MANOS, KIRSTY HAWKSHAW, KIYOMI YAMASHITA, and ANDREW GRANT.

Diving deeper into 2015, it seems that there's no rest in sight for PARADOX as he readies the 30th release on his PARADOX MUSIC label (which will be his astonishing 161st vinyl release to date) and gears up for another trip to perform his live act in SARDINIA, ITALY for the annual 'SUN AND BASS' music festival this September.

A brief look at PARADOX's live set-up:

Join us this session of 'THE GREENROOM' as STUNNA dedicates a 3 full hours to the music of PARADOX and sheds a bit more light on one of music's finest talents. Tune in!!

'THE GREENROOM' In-Studio Guest Mix from CORLOCK: July 1, 2015

On WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 2015, STUNNA kicks off the month with another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this session, we're treated to an exclusive, in-studio guest mix from a DJ direct from PHOENIX, ARIZONA: CORLOCK.

Getting his initial start in AKRON, OHIO as part of the INPUT crew in 1999, CORLOCK was involved with the longest running, multi-genre weekly playing BREAKS until relocating to PHOENIX in 2003. Quickly gaining momentum in a new scene, CORLOCK began playing DRUM+BASS exclusively and became a part of the PHX DnB crew. On a rotating basis, CORLOCK spun at the PHX DnB weekly party "ESSENTIAL WEDNESDAYS" in downtown PHOENIX for a few years. Gaining more bookings around the state of ARIZONA, as well as playing in various venues in CALIFORNIA, doors began opening for CORLOCK as a premier act.

In 2007, CORLOCK decided it was time to relocate again, and moved to LOS ANGELES to join forces with MC DINO and the URBAN ABORIGINEE crew. Performing in the L.A. area for over three years at numerous events and festivals, CORLOCK became an in-demand DJ that played for crews such as INSOMNIAC, UAontheDL, DnBTV, UPGRADE, JUNGLE THEORY, I LOVE LA, and RESPECT.

Deciding to redirect his focus mainly on education, CORLOCK gave the scene a rest for a few years while still accepting show offers when they arose. Currently, CORLOCK has reinvigorated his love for the music and tune production is underway. His passion for entertaining crowds and connecting with people through music can be seen and heard in his diverse DJ sets that continue to evolve and progress.

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from SAGE: June 24, 2015

On JUNE 24, 2015, STUNNA closes out the month and dives head first into summer with a very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this session, we're presented with an exclusive guest mix from one of the scene's legends: the producer, vocalist, and DJ known as SAGE.

SAGE (aka LAURA TOTTEN) was a world-renowned DRUM+BASS producer and DJ based in SAN FRANCISCO from 1997 to 2004. Retiring from the scene 11 years ago, and since relocating to her original home of BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND, she's now back in full force for 2015 with a slew of new releases lined up. She'll also be making a return to the STATES this coming September and October for a number live shows which feature her own live vocals over a set of original tracks and collaborations.

A multifaceted composer, musician, producer and DJ, SAGE plays several musical instruments (including drums and mandolin), dabbles with commercial composing, sings in a jazz duo and choirs, and facilitates youth and community workshops in her hometown of BELFAST. She was the very first female sponsor for the DC SHOES company and also added professional fashion model to her ever-growing list of accomplishments and talents. In 2001, she formed PHYLUM RECORDINGS with partner SUSIE LEE and then-DJ partner UFO!. The label released 4 vinyl 12's including a track from revered TECHNO producer JOHN TEJADA.

In 2004, after seven years continuous DJ gigs, playing almost nightly for months at a time, and dealing with the passing of her father, SAGE began an eleven year break from the scene to reconnect with friends and family, and ultimately, venture into different styles of music and a variety of creative outlets. Perfectly at home being a multi-disciplinary artist, SAGE has found a new breath of life creating a musical output that crosses many scenes, styles and tempos.

Currently, she writes TECH HOUSE tracks under her birth name "LAURA TOTTEN" and has releases out on UK-based TWISTED RECORDINGS. 2015 also sees new DRUM+BASS releases from SAGE due out soon on BELFAST-based label ANAMORPHIC. Featuring a number of IRISH musicians, ANAMORPHIC is also proud to add legendary producers CALIBRE and ZERO T to its growing roster of artists.

Join us as we're treated to the debut of the first studio mix in 11 years from SAGE (which will feature all original tracks, collabs, and remixes) presented exclusively on 'THE GREENROOM.' Tune in!!

'THE GREENROOM' In-Studio Guest TIM NICE June 3, 2015

Kicking off a brand new month, on JUNE 3, 2015, STUNNA presents another very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. On this week's edition, we welcome a fellow CHICAGOAN producer, DJ, and radio host known as: TIM NICE.

TIM NICE (aka TIME NICE/TIM NICKLESS) is an eclectic music producer, DJ, radio show host, and studio engineer originally hailing from the SOUTHWEST SIDE of CHICAGO. His introduction to dance music began in 1993 when a friend bestowed a set of mixtapes featuring GHETTO HOUSE/BOOTY HOUSE from the likes of DJ FUNK, SLUGO, and DEEON. In turn, this introduction inspired TIM to learn about as many styles of music as possible, and eventually, to seek formal education as a professional recording engineer and producer.

As a DJ, TIM holds a ridiculous amount of JUNGLE/FOOTWORK hybrid tracks. However, depending on the event, one can expect to hear any number of a variety of styles from DRUM+BASS to TECHNO to UNDERGROUND HIP HOP to a number of hybrids of BASS MUSIC's many forms. Priding himself on an eclectic and innovative mixing style, TIM loves to connect the dots between a myriad of sounds to illustrate just how similar most genres are to one another.

Currently TIM is a co-host (alongside SEARCHL1TE, JEEKOOS, and the featured talents of MC ZULU) of the the long-time running 'PARTY TIME SOCIETY' radio program (borne out of the original 'STRICTLY JUNGLE' and 'PART TIME SUCKER' shows) airing THURSDAY evenings on NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY's WNUR 89.3FM dial. The show is dedicated to featuring independent artists from around the world with a variety of styles within DRUM+BASS and beyond. Outside of the broadcast studios, TIM can be found rocking parties at some of the finest venues around CHICAGO, as well as preparing the imminent launch of his very own music imprint entitled ROCK MANY STYLES (which is set to offer a free compilation soon as a kick-off over on its BANDCAMP Site.

Join us for this broadcast of 'THE GREENROOM' as we're treated to an exclusive in-studio guest mix from TIM NICE as he takes us on a journey through the many styles of DRUM+BASS music. Tune in!!

Closing out the month in fine fashion, on MAY 27, 2015, STUNNA presents another very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. For this week's installment, we shed a bit of light upon a very talented and versatile upcoming producer/DJ that goes under the name: ALTERED PERCEPTION.

Originally from NORTH LONDON, ALTERED PERCEPTION (aka SAM GARTSIDE) has been very active in the DRUM+BASS arena the past few years. With a personal catalogue of original productions spanning a variety of labels such as SYNDROME AUDIO, VAMPIRE RECORDS, LIQUID DROPS, CYMBALISM RECORDINGS, RUSH RECORDS, ROGUE BEATZ, INFLUENZA MEDIA and SOUL DEEP RECORDINGS, SAM has also found time to manage and co-own imprints TERABYTE RECORDS, ALCHEMIC BREAKS, TRANSMISSION AUDIO, SUB:MISSION AUDIO, TA:LTD, as well as the internet broadcast station TRANSMISSION RADIO.

Now currently residing in LEEDS, UK, ALTERED PERCEPTION has immersed himself beyond just the studio domain by taking on a number of high-profile DJ bookings. On FRIDAY, MAY 29th, he takes to the decks at SANKEYS in MANCHESTER for the 'COHESION' party alongside scene stalwarts ED RUSH, BAILEY, DOM + ROLAND, FABIO, TOTAL SCIENCE, DIGITAL + SPIRIT, MAZTEK, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE and many more.

Join us for this broadcast of 'THE GREENROOM' as we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from ALTERED PERCEPTION featuring both his own creations fresh from the lab, as well as some of his personal favorites doing damage around dance floors worldwide. Tune in!!
