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.
Roger Sanchez Interview
Roger Sanchez is not only the DJ's DJ but the producer's producer. Constructing his entire new CD Come With Me from scratch, with outside assistance, he proves his skills as engineer, producer, programmer, and songwriter. Inspired by the dance Mecca island of Ibiza, the CD has already spawned several club anthems, with many more to come. To experience him as a DJ, check out his recently released mixed compilation Release Yourself 5, his frequent podcasts and radio shows.

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.

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.

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.

Robert Clivilles Interview
Robert Clivilles is truly a dance music legend. Together with his late partner David Cole, C&C Music Factory redefined dance music as a producer-driven artist medium and successfully brought their international smash hits “Gonna Make You Sweat,” “Things That Make You Go Hmm,” and “Here We Go,” to the people through clubs, video and touring. With the state of dance music in the United States, it seems like the perfect time to look back to a legend to help us focus on the future.
