Throwback Thursday: DJ W!ld – News Z (wAFF Groover Remix)

waff

Leeds producer/DJ, wAFF has been on a roll this year. With releases on Hot Creations, Suara, and Cocoon nothing seems to be stopping him. Today, we throw it back to one of his remixes for DJ W!ld from July of last year.

News Z (wAFF’s Groover Remix) shows us how versatile wAFF can be. Starting with a strong groove, the track evolves into a journey with strong leads and a tantalizing vocal aimed directly at the dance floor. After solid productions such as this, it’s no wonder he started getting signed to the major underground labels like Suara and Cocoon. Although we’re featuring some of his older work, his new two track EP for Cocoon Records seems equally promising. You can preview that here, and enjoy the News Z throwback below.

Event Promoters Taking Example From Europe To Prevent Drug Fatalities

Drug-related injuries and deaths have been a seemingly unbeatable parasite attached to this decade’s dance music boom in America. Youths have been quick to respond to increased security measures, which also contributes to even more unsafe practices such as ‘preloading’ an unsafe amount of dangerous substances before entering events. Attendees risk their safety and health by fighting fire with fire.

Music festival promoters have reevaluated their approach to preventing drug-related fatalities and injuries by taking example from Europe. “We looked to Europe a bit, where such things have worked out well,” said Dr. Andrew Bazos, Chairman of the SFX Medical and Safety Committee. “European electro promoters typically enact more comprehensive, long-term strategies than their American counterparts: specifically, they encourage peer-based crisis management and drug education.” At the Amsterdam Dance Event last October, Dr. Bazos gave a presentation called “Alive andWell at Live Music Events” that called for increases in two sectors of festival management besides security: harm reduction (cool-down areas, substance intake education, water stations) and medical (on-site treatment, fixed and roving EMTs).

This “European approach” strategy encourages safe practices over more aggressive involvement of law enforcement personnel. The event promoters employing this tactic aim to prevent the stifling atmosphere that results from stricter policies and an overbearing presence of police and security personnel.

Is the proper way to consider the safety of event-goers?

In The Studio With Surgeon

modularSurgeon is somewhat of a techno veteran; with releases on revered labels such as Downwards, Tresor, Blueprint, and Token, he has been a staple of the culture for over 25 years, never ceasing to evolve and improve as an artist. The UK native has always had a soft spot for analog gear, which he has been filling his studio with for a number of years. Needless to say, he has quite the impressive setup. From synthesizers to drum machines and everything in between, this guy has it all. Luckily, Surgeon has decided to discuss his gear and his workflow in an in-depth interview, courtesy of XLR8R. Whether you’re into analog or digital (both are very great in their own ways), you’ll surely get a kick out of this. In addition to discussing his hardware, he talks about how he incorporates software into his workflow; however, he makes it very clear that he is a hardware connoisseur.
