Ferry Corsten

It’s Friday, January 19th, 2018, just after 11:30 pm at Royale in downtown Boston. Ilan Bluestone is warming the crowd up with hits of his very own as well as others from the likes of crowd pleasers Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren and trance moguls alike. Meanwhile, we are here in the Green room with legendary Ferry Corsten to chat him up before his headlining set of the night. An open book, Ferry tells all about his vision behind the BluePrint tour, his effort to redirect the art and integrity of his album and the upcoming projects he’s been working on. 

After taking some time off to enjoy the Mediterranean coast, it was about time I had scoped out the music scene here in Europe. And so, mid afternoon in beautiful Valencia, Spain, on January 18th 2017, I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with up and coming singer/songwriter Josh Stanley from Monaco about how he began his music journey, his current endeavors and future plans for success before returning back to Boston for another semester at accredited, Berklee College of Music. 

On September 23rd, we were joined by house music favorite Sam Feldt to close out the summer’s Boat Cruise Summer Series, alongside his friend Bakermat. After throwing down on the high seas, Sam sat down with us before his set at Royale to discuss his quest for the perfect alias, his unprecedented come up, and one of his latest singles!.

On a clear but chilly September night, we hit the road and headed down to Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut to meet and greet the one and only Dara Hayes, also known as Tigerlily. After the team settled in around 11:15 pm, we had a few moments with Dara before her set at Shrine to discuss her health habits, signature style, and exciting new releases on the scene.

 

Once again we are on the high seas of Boston’s finest. It is around 8pm on August 8th, 2016 and after dodging some stormy skies, the sun is blazing and we’re ready for a night full of dirty beats and booty bumping. To carry us into our celebration, I’m here with Barclay Crenshaw, more formally known as Claude VonStroke who is prepared to throw it down in just a matter of minutes. But until then, we’re discussing some of his inspirations, future plans and BBQ obsession.

I’m here with the South African duo Goldfish currently cruising the Boston Harbor on the Boat Cruise Summer Series. It’s around 8:30pm, perfect timing to settle in, have a drink and take in the view. I got the chance to snag some time with Dom and Dave to discuss their recent move to San Diego, recent travels and ninja-esque super powers.

We’re here with Sam Vogel, a.k.a. Jauz, at Royale in the club district of downtown Boston on June 25th, 2016. Chilling backstage in the green room before his set, we discussed his opinion on classifying musical genres, inspiration, and his future endeavors surrounding his growing career. Meanwhile, duo DUDEnGUY are out warming up the crowd.

We’re here with Isabelle Rezazadeh (REZZ) at Ascend Boston, pre-set and the crowd already can’t get enough of her. We snuck away to kill some time, put some finishing touches on her new look, and talk about her exciting plans for the next couple of months, as well as her career, life, music and everything in between.

We’re here with Thomas Rozdilsky, also known as TJR, at Royale, in the heart of the club district in downtown Boston. It’s about 11:30PM on Friday, April 29th, 2016, and we’re chilling in the green room backstage while Shaun Frank takes over the house for a while. We were fortunate enough to snag his company for a few minutes and get a sense of where he is in his career and his current views of the music industry.

Trance mogul Gareth Emery has just concluded his North American escapade, the 100 Reasons To Live tour. The legend has released hits like “Concrete Angel” and “Long Way Home” alongside countless collaborations and other musical ventures such as his very own ‘Electric For Life’ radio series.

 

It’s 2AM on April 20, 2016 and we’re here at Ascend Nightclub in downtown Boston, a three-story venue inside Umbria Prime, notorious for bringing in niche sub-genre EDM acts. Gareth has just gotten off the decks after putting on a killer performance that the crowd thoroughly enjoyed and we’re lucky enough to have the opportunity to ask him a few questions about his 100 Reasons To Live Tour, future plans, and life as a musician.
