If you’re even remotely interested in DJing and dance music culture, sooner or later you will stumble across Bill Brewster. One of the most respected dance music commentators around, he has contributed to almost every major music rag, co-written the dance music bible Last Night a DJ Saved My Life, runs the brilliant website DJHistory.com, writes biographies and liner notes for anyone who is anyone in dance music, DJs globally (of course) and has confessed to amassing between ten and twelve thousand records along the way. He’s basically a walking Shazam, but with a central nervous system and opinions. MEOKO grilled the living library about his years in the industry, how he feels about its progress, the beginnings of his seminal book and his undying support for Grimsby FC.
We know that in the grand scheme of things, you just want to close your eyes, feel the beat and let your body move to the music. Anything worn to an EDM festival should be loose, light and comfortable because you will be on the dance floor all day and all night long. With the strobe lights going, you will want to wear fun, bright colors that catch the light and let you stand out in the crowd. Looking sexy has never been easier with some of these favorite club wear apparel pieces.
There are always new muscians taking their first steps into the realm of electronic dance music production and this covers the basic concepts which may initially appear confusing for someone starting out.
Dance music is split into a number of genres and sub genres so it covers quite a wide range of music such as house, garage, trance, dubstep, drum and bass, techno, breakbeat and electropop. A good mastering engineer should be capable of mastering music in any genre. His or her experience should be all encompassing, being able to understand enough about all genres and how they should sound. Most mastering engineers will have their own internal references and intimate knowledge about their mastering set up. This gives the engineer a high chance of satisfying clients needs across a wide range of genres.
