Traktor DJ Studio
As a singer/songwriter/dance artist just getting my feet wet in DJing, it's an interesting time to throw myself in the mix. Just as CDs were the new vinyl, mp3 files are establishing themselves as the new CD. I'll save the debate for another day, but it's safe to say that as a novice DJ, the thought of simply grabbing my laptop and external hard drive instead of cases and cases of CDs was very tempting.

I am the leading gay DJ at a large gay club in the southeast. My dance floor is always full (that's 300 to 400 people at a time). My problem is that no one really knows who I am. The club I DJ at does not put my name in any of its advertisements; they put everyone else in their ads but me.

The recent release of Buzzin' Fly Volume 3 is a testament to the music that Ben Watt continues to produces and find for the househeads of the world.
Alex Gold
How many people can claim to have worked with Prince, Bryan Adams, Chuck D, Phil Oakey (Human League), and Maire Brennan (Clannad) to produce wonderful dance music? Launching the seminal UK dance label Xtravaganza, Alex Gold has been involved with over 55 top 40 hits while maintaining DJ residencies around the world. The label, which launched the careers of Chicane, Agnelli & Nelson, and several other major dance artists, mysteriously fell silent in 2002 when Alex suffered a tragic accident.

Lady Gaga - 'The Fame'
Lady Gaga crept up on the modern music scene much like a stealthy predator, sure of its prey's inability to sense or to predict it. She let herself be seen a few times as an unassuming and docile beast, something to be comfortable around. She even let herself be heard, her calls and cries as far from threatening as possible.

As a sound designer for Korg and Ableton, he creates the sounds that other producers use. As a producer, he has worked with circuit Roland Belmares and commercial Joe Bermudez.

Ferry Corsten Interview
There's more to the life of a superstar DJ than traveling the globe via first class planes and bedding supermodels; the truly dedicated ones go to the grassroots and actually experience the places they perform. With his new CD/DVD set Passport USA, Ferry Corsten gives you a firsthand view of his recent US bus tour with a slamming set of music he played and film coverage of life on the road. In addition to going from Punk to Junk, he's also gone high style with his own fashion line.
Joey Negro (aka Dave Lee) Interview
Whether you call him Joey Negro, Jakatta or one of the Hed Boys, Dave Lee is well known as one of roots of the British house and garage scene. With countless productions and remixes in every DJ’s set, he manages to find the best music for his compilations and DJ sets while exploring his musicality with diverse and soul-satisfying projects. His new set Kings of Disco, with Dmitri from Paris, is just the latest gift he has given to house music lovers worldwide.

Interview with Karl Hyde of Underworld
Dance artists rarely make it past one album, much less to a greatest hits album. Underworld is not a typical dance artist and Anthology 1992-2002 is not a greatest hits album, but rather a collection of songs that document ten years of music from white labels to major soundtracks by one of the most important electronic music artists. Karl Hyde spoke to us about the progression of Underworld through their unique live shows and creative visions that keep us all jumping on the dancefloor. Page 2.
