De lampen knipperen rustig; de drank vloeit rijkelijk; het publiek stroomt gelijkmatig binnen en de DJ draait de fijnste groovy vocal platen. Langzaam wordt het donkerder en gaan de decibellen en beats per minuut langzaam maar zeker omhoog. De visuals bereiken langzaam haar eerste climaxen en bigroom-house muziek voert de boventoon; gedraaid door de ‘Heroes of Housemusic’.

Tune Of The Day: Spandau Ballet vs. Basto! – Gold 2012

Basto is Belgium’s freshest EDM export and is well known for his melodic brand of feel good progressive house music. His latest remix is set to become an absolute dance floor destroyer reworking classic 80’s pop royalty Spandau Ballet and their global hit Gold.

Teaming Tony Hadley’s unmistakably powerful vocals with a banging main room electronic vibe, Basto has turned the 1983 track into a contemporary dance track that is equally at home on the dancefloors as it will be on the terraces of the country’s Olympic stadia. Instantly recognizable as the Spandau Ballet hit, established fans and clubbers alike will be singing along to the catchy chorus. Spandau Ballet are no strangers to dance music. They were there at the start of the DJ culture in the late 1970s and early 80s in the clubs of Soho and throughout Europe and the world. The band were one of the first white bands to release a 12“ remix of their singles, in particular To Cut Along Story Short, an era-defining slice of electronic myth-making which took them to a huge audience, out of the clubs and into the charts. Followed closely by Chant No.1 (We Don’t Need This Pressure On), a mix of contemporary funk and modern vibes, Spandau Ballet were the coolest band in town.

Basto’s re-take of Gold manages to mix a more aggressive electronic sound with the ingredients of an energy anthem, all over an indestructible bass. It’s a strong step up from his previous big room hits like the tantalizing Gregory’s Theme, the addictive Again & Again, atmospheric Cloudbreaker (with Yves V) and gives a massive nod to his current Beatport chart topping monster, I Rave You.

As Basto himself says: When I first decided to remix “Gold” by Spandau Ballet, I. hesitated for a moment.  Usually, I’m very sceptical when it comes to reworking classics. Why would you wanna take the risk to ruin an epic record? But we managed to make it a very relevant dance track, without losing the gist of the original. It’s not a remix of an old track anymore, it’s a cool record with an epic vocal”   

Basto is constantly heading club charts with his remixes including Kylie MinogueThe Wanted, Ed Sheeran and Flo-Rida to the recent smash hit  212 from Azelia Banks featuring Lazy Jay, Conor Maynard, Stooshe ft. Travie McCoy, Lil John ft. LMFAOLabrinthMoby and Sander Van Doorn.

Introducing: Tiesto & Hardwell ft. James Stefano – Zero 76

Singer and songwriter, James Stefano started at the age of 18 with several talent shows to over come his anxiety performance. He started practicing with his uncle who persuaded him to give it a try. Although he had a long way to go he liked it so much that he was determined to practice even harder to get his goals. One of the ways to succeed is that James Stefano watched so many video clips and music movies to step up his game. James Stefano taught him self how to dance and to perform from all those video clips.

One day a class member of James Stefano introduced him to Atif Hamdine and from that day the formed the duo A-tif & Suggest. Together they won every talent show they could enter. Their talent and performance didn’t stay unnoticed. Their first video clip was shot in Spain and was well received by Dutch radio & tv.

They also got to the semi finals of Dutch TV show hit “ Holland’s Got Talent” and because of that they toured through Holland and released more video clips. One evening James Stefano got this crazy idea to do a bootleg of Tiesto & Hardwell’s “Zero 76”. The vocal version of “Zero 76” gave him so much attention at that moment that he decided to give it a shot as a MC/Vocalist in the electronic dance scene. He received a lot of requests from deejays & producers from all over the world that wanted to work with him. This has also led to many booking requests to rock several clubs as a MC in Europe.

What makes James Stefano unique is that he is a real all-round entertainer. He sure knows how to handle the crowd not only by mc-ing. But also performing as singer, by giving his own twists to hit songs.

At this moment he is working with a new producers team on new material and a great live show is coming to a club near you. Together with A&G Agency, his new management team he is determined to succeed in his goals and dreams to be a world-class artist, traveling all around the world.
