Future in Your Head by LopezHouse

Ok Ravers we had the pleasure to talk with the boys of LopezHouse for the release of their EP: “Future in You Head” and we found out this dudes are bringing a very unique sound inspired in the music of Joy Division, The Cure, Trentemoller and many more. Very Nice Isn’t it?.

This Duo from La Mancha Spain, have released music on Dirty Bird Records and Exploited Records and we can tell it is definitely not the average stuff you can hear out there in nowadays Music Market. This bundle includes 3 tracks: “Future in Your Head”, “Trust In Me” and “Pills”.

Even though all tracks are absolutely fantastics, Raveradar’s Team loves “Pills” it turn out our favorite.

Raveradar:

LopezHouse:

Raveradar:

LopezHouse:

David started his career as LopezHouse many years ago and we decided to keep on under the same name.

Raveradar:  

Cool then, How would you define your sound? though!!!

LopezHouse:

We think it´s a mixture of electronic music with post-punk attitude and indie-rock band sounds or elements. Our last release with Exploited Records shows up our indie-punk sound.

Raveradar:

That’s nice but You can’t shoot such a definition without naming some of your favorite music!, Would you Please name some of your Musical influences?

LopezHouse:

We have listened and we love 80´s and 90´s alternative-rock bands as Joy Division, The Cure…. Trentemoller could be our main figure.

Raveradar:

DJ Mixes Legalized by Soundcloud

Everybody loves Soundcloud; artists, record labels, publishers, comedians, radio stations, fans, even politicians use it to spread a message. But Couple years ago the Music Industry changed enforcing Copyrights Policies and the most affected were the Deejays who has been uploading DJ Mixes on the german streaming service from its very beginning.

 

Major Record Companies forced Soundcloud to take actions over any user who did not have the appropriate rights to use the content. Many Accounts were deleted, many DJ Mixes were taken down, and thousands of users moved to other providers as a result; There was something big Missing, Dj’s needs to release DJ Mixes.

 

Most of the fun behind the Platform was gone until today when Eric Wahlforss, Founder and Manager behind Soundcloud, said to Groove Magazine during an interview:

 

 During the negotiations for SoundCloud Go, we achieved agreements with collecting societies like GEMA in Germany, making these problems a thing of the past – even for users who do not subscribe…

 

Mr. Wahlforss also explains that different forms of Advertisement such as Audio Clips would be there but it would not be noticeable. He was asked if there will be Audio Advertisement within the DJ Mixes, which he answered very clear:

 

No, this is not foreseen. Mixes should not be interrupted by advertising.

 

Well dear Ravers Now It is 100% Legal. Even though we would love to be talking about something else, at least this year was legalized something we all need and care about too, this is the right way to close 2016.

 

Best of 2016

Well it is the end of 2016 and we have planned to choose every year from now on the Best Record Label and Best Dj Producer; based in the quality of the releases dropped through out the year, and of course the votes of our crew members.  This Time Germany the crib of wonderful artists indeed and The Country where Love Parade were based once took over holding both categories.

 

BEST RECORD LABEL 2016

Our Best Record Label for 2016 is RUNDBN & RUNDEEP Records, Both records labels are curated by DBN trio; featuring originals, remixes and free tracks from a roster of artists that have released the most impressive Music catalog during the hall year, at least from our very humble point of view.

 

Marvelous Deep House, Jackin House, Bassline a.k.a Future House and aggressive Tech House, Progressive, Electro and Progressive Electro. Here you can take a listen and have a bite of what we mean, if any of these names does not sounds familiar to you that is RaveRadar all about, there is so much music out there, perhaps not listing on tops but definitely good enough to rock the clubs.

 

 

 

BEST DJ PRODUCER 2016

In the other hand The one and only, Eddie Thoneick is our pick of the year, for Best DJ Producer. Eddie has done nothing but rise after releasing “Live you Life” back in 2010 with the Creator, Curator and Master Mind behind Subliminal Records Mr. Erick Morillo and Shawnee Taylor’s vocals.

 

Now collaborating with cool record labels such as Tom Staar’s Staar Traxx, Cartel Recordings and Sosumi Records both under Kryder’s control, and most recently under Subliminal Records again with Erick Morillo featuring vocals from Angel Taylor in “Lost on You”. Eddie Thoneick mainly focusing in the Club’s Dancefloors has for sure delivered some of the 2016’s Bombs, and here your can hear the proof.

 



 

These are our picks for Best Record Label and Best DJ Producer of 2016, Let’s see what 2017 brings, Feel free to leave your comments and share your thoughts with us. Happy Holidays.

 

Art Basel 2016

Miami still has action going on before 2016 its done, Art Basel just Started and RaveRadar is ready to walk the galleries for an entire week.

 

Art in almost any expression would be exposed across the city and techno and house music will be the soundtrack. We are for real excited to attend some of the parties, this here is the Top 5 most attractive raves taking place in town, of course there are more around but these are our favorite ones.
