  1. This interview taken from www.simplybangin.com The return of the legend himself, “Evil” Eddie Richards, comes this weekend and we are proud as always to be the guys to bring him to you…live and direct Known to most as the “Godfather of Tech-House” it’s no secret that this guy has been around the block a few times and knows how to treat a dance floor! If for some reason you have yet to come across this man’s profile, I’d say you probably need to do some homework on house music. If you haven’t had the chance to hear him for yourself, THEN I’d say you better be there this weekend! We got a chance to ask Eddie a few questions about his career as a DJ and how he got there. Eddie, Welcome to a new year… a new decade… 2010! Thanks for taking the time to speak with us. Was being a dj and producer always your career path, or was there ever anything else in mind? I got into djing by starting a mobile disco with a friend at school. I really had no idea what I wanted to do as a career & at that time being a club DJ wasn’t even an option. There was no such thing as a career as a DJ, unless you were on a radio station. How often does that keep you out on the road still, performing for your fans? I’m playing out about once a week still, all over the world… and its enough for me these days. What is DY-NA-MIX, and how did it get it’s start? Dy-Na-Mix UK was a DJ booking agency that I started in 1990. It was the first dedicated DJ agency, I believe. When the rave scene started to grow in the late 80s, DJs needed some form of representation & we started off by booking tours for some American acts & DJs. The concept just grew & continued growing over 10 years. We had offices in Japan Germany Belgium Canada USA & even South Africa! When was the first time you came to NYC, and what keeps you coming back? I first came over in 1985 as a kind of pilgrimage. All of the best DJs, clubs & record labels were in NYC & I NEEDED to check it out. I went to Paradise Garage, Zanzibar, Sound Factory, Studio 54 & others. I was able to catch guys like Larry Levan, Tony Humphries, Junior Vasquez, Louie Vega, Frankie Knuckles and more of the original NYC players. Ive since been over at least once a year, firstly for New Music Seminar & then to DJ in most of the great NYC clubs over the years. Sullivan Room has been a sort of home for me when I visit. We always turn it out there! Who are your top 3 producers of the moment? I’m really liking Audiofly, MCDE, Dachshund at the moment.. plus lots of others of course. Favorite memory of 2009? Visiting Japan with my girl.. we both loved it there! MORE INFORMATION PLUS FREE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS, MIXES, AND PROMOS CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.SIMPLYBANGIN.COM
  2. Saturday 1.9 Simply Bangin & KGB present Evil Eddie Richards w/ DJ Fame, Alex Kofman, & Dirty Dan Sullivan Room Join us Saturday, January 9th, as SIMPLY BANGIN’ and KGB welcome back to Sullivan Room one of the most respected house dj’s on the planet, the “Godfather of Tech-House†himself... “EVIL†EDDIE RICHARDS (Fabric, Wiggle, UK)!!! As a resident at London's world-famous Fabric nightclub, and one-third of the Wiggle trio, Eddie’s name is synonymous with cutting edge British dance music. For more than 20 years, he has been a hugely influential figure on the UK scene, from DJing at some of the earliest British raves to starting up one of the first booking agencies (Dy-Na-Mix.) Join us as the original tech-house pioneer takes to the decks, bringing his unmistakable sound to the underground. Joining him, is Sullivan Room favorite and long time resident DJ Fame (Dubsided, Potty Mouth). He released the first Sullivan Room CD in 2006, the 2nd under his Bit Crushers moniker in 2008, and has been behind the booth at Sullivan for over 6 years. On top of that, add a few remixes and originals on labels such as Dubsided, Perfecto, Potty Mouth, Little Mountain, Wearhouse, and more and it’s easy to see why Fame has had a busy past few years of out of town appearances on his schedule. Alex Kofman (Elevator People) makes a very special appearance to Sully in celebration of his birthday. Simply Bangin’ resident, Dirty Dan, makes his Sullivan Room debut as he gets the night opened up. Dan recently relocated back from Alaska, where he held down numerous residencies, FM radio shows, and built a major global following for his podcast. This past year, he also released his first set of original tunes on UK’s Underphunk and On Time/Rise Records. $15 with rsvp [email protected] (please include first name, last initial & event) Advanced tickets available at wantickets.com/sullivanroom Sullivan Room 218 Sullivan St. (Bleecker & W. 3rd) Doors at 10pm | 21+ simplybangin.com sullivanroom.com

  4. INTERVIEW WITH WWW.SIMPLYBANGIN.COM Chicago house sensations, Santiago and Bushido have been cranking out chart topping originals and high profile remixes together for the past 6 years, releasing material on top notch labels such as Potty Mouth, OM, and Ultra. Their track “Head Trick†was a true dance anthem of 2008, receiving major support from guys like Moby, DJ Tiesto, Switch, Armin Van Buren, and Diplo. It was Beatport’s single most downloaded song in January 2008, and the 8th most downloaded of the entire year! More recently, their collaboration with Om recording artist Colette entitled “Make Me Feel,†was released in spring of this year and quickly became a hit. S&B again saw the #1 spot on Beatport’s electro sales and was charted by another huge list of heavy hitters. Their success has brought them to some of the best clubs and festivals across the entire globe. On Saturday, December 5th, Simply Bangin’ brings S&B to Santos Party House for their NYC debut and we got a chance to catch up a little beforehand in an exclusive interview where the guys tell us a bit about their upcoming projects with Green Velvet and Collette, their future direction, and a couple of their best memories to date… (check the events page for full details on the night!) You guys have had some major success these past couple of years. Congratulations! It must be amazing to hear when the biggest jocks in the world are dropping your tunes to their crowds. How has the ride been so far? Tim: It’s been great. Getting a chance to travel different places to showcase our music to different crowds, meeting other artists that we are into and everything. Chris: The support from our fellow DJ’s and producers has been tremendous. Since our first release on Potty Mouth the shows have taken us not only around the US but to other countries – it has definitely been a fun ride so far. How did the two of you get your start together? Tim: We both went to the same college in Chicago and got introduced by a mutual friend of ours. We both grew up on house music and were really into in. Started hanging out, then started producing together and haven’t stopped since. Chris: Tim just sunk a chunk of money into all this new studio gear – I had to at least go over to his place and check it out! We were both doing our own production separate but everything just seemed to click that first session – our ideas complemented each other. We were really into Chicago style house – that Derrick Carter boompty shit – it was awesome. First track we put out was ‘Chicago MF’ on Doubledown and the rest is history! What was it like producing part of Collette’s album, and how did that differ from your normal production style? Tim: It was great, we really love working with Colette, she has a beautiful voice and we’ve found that we work really well together whether we are working on tracks made more for the club or made more for commercial play. On some tracks for her album she chose a beat that we already had done and then we reworked it for her, and there were some time she would send us vox and we’d make the beat around that. In either case there was lots of back and forth and tweaking of a little things to make it sound just right, we also had to work with her engineer to make sure the sound of the tracks fit with the sound of the album. One of our bigger Santiago & Bushido tracks recently was ‘Make Me Feel’ which is definitely more of a club track, but featured some samples of Colette’s vocal of an original track we did with her on her album called ‘Running Aroundâ€. We have continued to keep a tight working relationship with Colette, we’ve just remixes a track she did with Chuck Love called ‘Everything’ which should be released on early 2010 and we are also scheduled to work on her upcoming album and an EP for Potty Mouth. Chris: I really like working w/ good vocals. There’s something about a track w/ vocal – even if it is something small – that speaks to a more general audience. If we had our way we would be working with more vocalists. Where do you feel your sound is headed? What projects do you have going on? Tim: Because of the Internet dance music (and all music) is evolving really quickly these days with so many people all over the world being influenced by each other with so many different styles. Sometimes it feels like it is almost too much too fast, but on the other hand it is also pretty cool to have access to so much and be so connected with everyone. We are listening and taking influence from so many things, whatever is fresh. Be it on world beats, dubstep, hip hop, rock, or techno/house. We just try to get in the studio and do our thing, push our sound, as long as it has that S&B sound it works. But we definitely try to keep out sound evolving. The basic style we generally make is dance music for the dance floor that will get people moving. But in addition to that we are getting more and more into working with artist driven music, working with vocalist on music which you may hear outside of the club as well as in the club. Where has all this brought you to perform, and which gig was most memorable so far? Tim: We’ve been many great places, all over the US, to Europe, to Australia, etc. Everywhere seems to have their own little scene that is in to the type of stuff we do and we’ve met many great people. I’d have to say that we really enjoy going out to Cali because there seem to be a lot of support and interest for the type of music we are doing there. As far as memorable gigs, there are many so many of them, but one that stands out in my mind would be the Decibel fest in Seattle we did last year. Reason being is because that was where we did out first live set, no djing. Just both of us with a bunch of controllers manipulating all the S&B tracks and a few others. Doing all sorts of re-edits on the fly. It was a bit nerve wrecking because we are first and foremost dj’s, always have been and always will be, and that was our first 100% live show. But it went over really well and opened out eyes to other live stuff we can do in addition to djing. Chris: I’d have to say my fav so far has been the Burning Man festival this year. We had the chance to stay with the Root Society camp which totally took care of us. The vibe, the people, the experience – it was definitely one of those life experiences you will never forget! Are you excited to play in NYC for the first time? What can people expect? Tim: yes, we’re very excited. Been eager to get our here for a minute. We’ve been out West so many times but have yet to play in NYC, so we are hoping this is the first of many times we’ll be playing there! We think NYC should be really into what we are doing. People can expect to be moving on the dancefloor to some heavy beats. Chris: We’ve been incorporating some live elements via Ableton Live and MIDI controllers in addition to our DJ sets. We want to incorporate some of the freedom we had with a live PA set but still keep things DJ centric. NYC will be one of the first to experience this so watch out! As DJ’s, what do you do to bring your own creative style in to the booth? Tim: We try to be very meticulous in regards to track selection and mixing. As far as what kind of stuff you’ll hear, first of all you can expect to hear a lot of S&B production (much of it unreleased). Outside of that we play all different sort of fresh dance music, but the goal is always the same to keep the crowd moving and to keep the crowd hyped. Chris: I think Tim and I have our music preferences and it shows with the tracks we select. Its good because Tim might play something that I wasn’t even thinking about and gets the crowd really hyped. Anything we should look out for in the near future? Got a bunch of stuff going on. Right now we are remixing Hatiras’s classic track Spaced Invaders. We just finished up a massive remix of Fame and Eric Sharp called Wiggle Room, out on their new label Rock It Science in early 2010. We are working on a couple of remixes for German label Zooland. A remix for Chuck Love and Colette coming out on Chuck’s label, Love Network. We have an EP coming out on Potty Mouth which features a collaboration we did with with Hijack. We are working on a remix of a Crookers track. Scheduled to work with Green Velvet on a track for his forth coming album. Working with Collette on tracks for her album plus an EP with her for Potty Mouth, etc, etc, etc…..! Lots of good stuff in the pipeline!

Since teaming up as a production duo in 2003, Chris Santiago and Tim Bush have dropped numerous EP's and remixes on some of the most well respected labels around including Potty Mouth, Om, Ultra, and have generated a significant following in the process. Their unique sound and flawless DJ sets have helped to establish Santiago & Bushido as one of the premier acts in dance music today. Their track 'Head Trick' was one of the true dance anthems of 2008, a major crossover success receiving play and charting from many of the globe's top DJ's such as Moby, DJ Tiesto, Switch, Armin Van Buren, and Diplo. Head Trick was the 1 most downloaded song in January 2008, and the 8 most downloaded of the entire year on Beatport.com, the world's top online site for electronic music. Santiago & Bushido followed the success of Head Trick with a number of critically acclaimed releases and remixes including a massive remix of Kaskade's Billboard 1 hit single Move For Me, a reworking of Larry Tee's Louis Vuitton, and their original single Can't Be Wrong which has been licensed to numerous complications such as Ministry of Sound. In addition to belting out club tracks Santiago and Bushido have worked with Om recording artist Colette on her artist album "Push" for which they wrote and produced multiple songs including the album's single, "If," which was licensed for an episode of Real World for "MTV" and can also be purchased as a ring tone from Verizon. Having been intimately involved with music his entire, life Bushido picked up his first pair of turntables and sampler on his 16th birthday and immediately went to work mixing, sampling, and cutting up any piece of vinyl he could get his hands on. His carefully crafted DJ sets caught the ears of some of Chicago's nightlife elite and he soon found himself playing all over the city. Tim spent his days working at Chicago Recording Company, sharing the same recording space with the likes of R.Kelly and Smashing Pumpkins among others. By working alongside some of Chicago's most well respected engineers at CRC, Bushido honed his engineering and production prowess until opportunity knocked. While Bushido was mastering his craft, Santiago was working his way up the Chicago's nightlife hierarchy. Within one year of playing live gigs, he secured a Friday night residency at Zentra Nightclub's House Arrest, and within a year he would be playing to Chicago's most musically educated and up-for-it partiers as an exclusive resident at "World's Best Dance Club", Smartbar, joining the halls of dance icons that have enjoyed similar slots there (including other current residents Kaskade and Justin Long). As DJ's, Santiago & Bushido draw influence from their Chicago house background and apply harder and heavier elements to their sound. Santiago & Bushido are regularly headlining and appearing at some of the best parties in the US and beyond including Avalon in LA, Decibel Festival in Seattle, and Bed in Miami. Recent shows have them playing along side some of the hottest talent around today such as Deadmau5, Crookers, and Kaskade. Their 2009 dates include a multi-city tour in Australia, multiple trips to Europe, and regular gigs in North America. MORE INFO: http://www.myspace.com/santiagobushido
