The Shoe Skool Sessions Blogcast - Sharaz Mix

Happy Friday everybody, we have something wicked on tap for you all today, a kickass Exclusive mix and an awesome interview from Breakbeat Legend, Sharaz! Since last week we had such a drastically different show for you we have decided to only post the Sharaz mix for you! Don't fear though, because next week we will have an all new episode of The Shoe Skool Sessions w/ Sneaker & The Dryer! Enjoy the interview and mix!!!

Originally born in Chicago but having moved to Florida to attend college, Sharaz is one of the first artists that influenced me to make the change from the 4/4 world into one that was broken.

Sharaz has been leaving his mark on the EDM scene for over 15 years now and he has worked with top artists from around the country, not to mention having been nominated for an IDMA Award in 2007. He has performed alongside legends like Richard "Humpty" Vision, Darude, The Crystal Method and Paul Okenfold and has been nominated several times as America's #1 Breakbeat DJ by BPM Magazine.

An experienced drummer with a rock background that is also heavily influenced by funk and Mo Town, Sharaz has recently begun to incorporate multiple genres into his Dj sets and productions including Electro House, Dubstep and Rocktronica.

Recently Sharaz has really been turning up the heat in the production department and I have been playing just about everyone of his latest releases on my radio shows, in my Live sets and using them in my promotional mixes. "It Doesn't Matter Where I'm From" is a personal favorite of mine that I just can't get enough of and his most current release, "Freakout", had a nice ride in the Beatport Top 100 Breaks just a few weeks ago.

Releasing his originals on his own label NineFourOne Media, Sharaz often has "Free Tune Friday's" where he will post up his newest track on Soundcloud and make it available for download to the first 1,000 lucky people. The downloads often max out within 24-48 hours, so make sure to follow him on Soundcloud so you don't miss out. After the 1,000 download limit is reached, you can purchase the tracks on Beatport or wherever else you get your digital music. The next "Free Tune Friday" from Sharaz is scheduled for April 13th, don't slack!

With over 35 records and 5 CDs released under his own label NineFourOne Media and a slew of bangers about to drop (most of which are in the mix we have below), you can expect big big things from Sharaz in the near future!

Recently signed to Sky Artist Management, if you are wondering what Sharaz is like Live, check out the incredible Exclusive sixty minute mix we have for you from Mr. Sharaz. If this isn't the way to get your weekend started right, I don't know what is. Grab yourself the download, turn your speakers up and keep reading for the Kick It 12 - Sharaz Edition to see what makes him tick, Kick It!

The Kick It 12 - Sharaz Edition

1. – At what age did you first find yourself gravitating towards electronic music and who were some of the artists outside of Electronic music that influenced that?

I got into EDM n my mid 20's. Honestly I didn't pay too much attention before that because I've always been a rock-and-roll and Motown guy. Still am for the most part.

2. – What was your very first Album? How about CD?

My first album album?...hmmm...I think it was Boston's first record. Someone gave me a copy of that for my birthday when I was little and I remember it being used and all scratched up. As for my first CD I cannot even remember! My first EDM CD was DJ Hardware's “Trip Hop Acid Phunk”, though. That was a banger!

3. – How did you first get involved with the Electronic music culture and what was the first event that you attended?

Where I live, back in the mid 90's, a local club here would throw an electronic night on Thursdays. I started going because I thought the people were more interesting to hang out with. Got to like and understand the music in the meantime. That's how I guess it started.

4. – Where was your favorite gig that you have had to date?

I've had lots of them. I always enjoy playing in Los Angeles, though. I love that place and have a ton of friends out that way. I'd move out there if I wasn't such a pussy.

5. - Who have you been most proud to play alongside?

Afrika Bambaataa, Bad Boy Bill and Paul Oakenfold.

6. - Where would you most like to play that you have not yet?

Believe it or not, I have never been to Las Vegas. Not as a visitor and not as a DJ. Don't know what the place looks like except in photos.

7. - What is your favorite tune you have released?

Probably “Holdin' On” because it was kind of a different song for me. That one was nominated for an International Dance Music Award (IDMA) a few years back. I was up against Jamoriquai and Fedde Le Grande. Le Grande won.

8. - Who is your favorite EDM artist? How about outside of EDM?

In EDM that's a tough one because there are so many. Same outside of EDM. Elvis, The Beatles, The Doors, Marvin Gaye and almost all of the Motown artists were a huge influence on me growing up – and yes that includes early Michael Jackson. My mom was always listening to Diana Ross and the Supremes. I think the 1960s and the 1980s were watershed moments in popular musical history...I did get to experience the 80s as a kid but I only got to experience the 60s through its music. I started playing the drums at 12, banging on pillows with two sticks to Motown music.

9. - Who are some artists you would like to collaborate with in the future?

I'd really like to work with some producers outside of EDM. Maybe Dr. Luke. Cee Lo Green and Danger Mouse are two other guys I really admire. I like that whole Motown vibe they have going on. A lot of people will probably say this is cheesy but I'm really interested in how these guys go about the music creation process.

10. - What is your preferred software for producing? Hardware?

Ableton as of late. I've been through pretty much all of them and I am kind of stuck on Ableton because of the workflow. I have so much hardware I ended up having to put a good portion of it in storage. I have a couple of vintage Roland Jupiters, a few Junos, a TR 909, a few Access Virus synths, some old vocoders...I really don't use any of them anymore, I just collect and will buy stuff when I see it if it's a good deal. Vintage synths have been better investments than real estate for me. One hardware piece I do use are my Roland V-Drums...I will often produce my beats live using those and Native Instruments Kontakt.

11. - What life lessons has the music industry taught you?

Oh wow lots of them. You're only as good as your last song and people will forget about you pretty fast, especially in EDM. The other is never stop learning, especially from the younger peeps, because young minds bring fresh ideas. Stay away from the politics – you really don't need to be involved in peoples' drama, it just drags you down. I just make music for me these days and couldn't care less what anyone thinks. For instance I've been putting drops and huge builds in my songs lately. Someone recently said to me “that's kind of cheesy”, I was like “who the hell told you you had to listen to my music? I like them so go fuck off.” Unless you are being paid by a big label or artist who wants something extremely specific, do your own thing and worry about only yourself is probably the best industry lesson anyone can learn.

12. – What does the future hold for Sharaz?

I have been branching out. Like I said, I've always been a rock-and-roll kind of guy, and lately I've been incorporating some of those elements in my music - guitars, acoustic instruments and such. I'm really bored with stuff in the 130-ish bpm range as well and have been doing some faster tempo music along with some cinematic type work. It's a real challenge. I work with a handful of vocalists and will sometimes sit down and compose a project for them at 100bpm or 150 bpm or whatever seems to suit me at that particular moment. I do not feel like I have to make just breaks anymore...but one time that was my thinking, though. It's a big world out there, so why stay in one village all your life?

The Shoe Skool Sessions Blogcast Episode #29 w/ Left Right's "Fight Mix"

Who’s ready for some Friday? I know I sure am and we've got just what you need to get you in the weekend mood, a free mix from Left/Right and The Shoe Skool Sessions Blogcast#28! After his highly well received "Flight Mix" which was enormously popular, many a bass head have been eagerly awaiting the second part in the series and we now have it available for you!

Chris Lund aka Left/Right has spent over a decade working from Dallas as a Dj, producer, and teacher... and even longer as a musician. His music has garnered stellar reviews from DJ Mag, Rolling Stone, BT, The Crystal Method, DJ Icey, and NAPT as well as charted in the top 10 at Beatport, DjDownload, Juno, TrackItDown, and the Hype Machine. With degrees in both music composition and audio engineering, Chris loves to create music and it shows in his work!

His exciting singles, innovative remixes, and pumping Dj mixes are released on notable labels like Sound Of Habib, Ego Shot, Downbeat, and Dusted Breaks among others. Proficient as a Dj and a producer, L/R smashes it behind the decks when he is playing out live as well and he is regularly booked throughout the US and internationally to move dancefloors with his signature Breaks, Electro, and driving Indie sound.

Left/Right has been seriously heating things up with an assortment of recent originals and remixes and his collaborations with Digital Pizza have been phenomenal. Their remix of The Crystal Method's "Play For Real" is one of my favorite tracks from 2011 as is their original tuna "Every Body", which had a nice ride in the charts proving I'm not the only one feeling that way!

We had the first NSB Radio airing of Left/Right's "Fight Mix" on The Shoe Skool Sessions last night and it was one of the busiest chat rooms I have seen and everyone I talked to was totally loving it! If you are feeling the new wave of Future Jungle that's been picking up steam, then this sixty minute mix is going to be music to your ears as it was mine.

Packed full of nothing but the business including lots of exclusive stuff from L/R himself, this is one mix that's going to be rocking a lot of speakers in the coming weeks!

Then it’s time for Sneaker & The Dryer bringing you the business on a whole new set up!!! Prepare yourself for some out of this world mixing as S&D recreates their most recent Live set from down in Washington DC this past weekend! Huge tunes combined with new equipment make this podcast a must have!

The Shoe Skool Sessions Podcast Episode #27

Awe yeah!!! It’s the best day of the week… Friday! That means an all new episode of The Shoe Skool Sessions Podcast w/ Sneaker & The Dryer is now available and about to bite you in the ears with the BASS! For all of you battling sickness this winter have no fear, because the sickness of this show will far outweigh anything you have making it bow down or get down!!!  Today's show features over 3 hours of new tuna, a brand new free banger from S&D, and the awesome commentary from the one like Btz that makes these podcasts so entertaining. Everyone knows the level of business that Sneaker and the Dryer expends on The Shoe Skool Sessions, so I will get right down to talking about the S&D boys brand new track.

The ones like Knife Party have taken the EDM scene by storm in just a few months reaching stratospheric numbers in ridiculously short periods of time. Combining the best of Electro House, Dubstep and Breaks into one mind blowing sound, these guys are bringing the business in a big way! Having recently dropped a free, four track EP entitled "100% No Modern Talking" that it is being played out by just about everybody you can think of, tunes like "Internet Friends" and "Tourniquet" are taking the Complextro style to the next level. "Fire Hive" is the first tuna off of the EP and with this one Knife Party make the journey into Dubstep territory and sufficiently stake their claim. 

What's that you say, you're not a fan of trying to mix Dubstep into your 4/4 and Breaks sets.... neither am I. Well you are in luck because the Sneaker & The Dryer Edit of "Fire Hive" is made to easily mix in with either genre.

Starting things off with S&D's trademark heavy kick and snare, this is one edit that does not just have an extra drum hit added here and there and that's all you get.  A whole new work in is the most noticeable change to start things off and Public Enemy snips will quickly remind you that this is not the original! What's that you say, you don't have your volume cranked, well turn that shit up and get ready to get down as Sneaker & The Dryer totally rework the main section into a 4/4 monster that will have kids headbanging from the front row all the way to the back.

Pulling vocal samples from a total of four different tracks, the main breakdown makes another major change-up and 1-2 steps back into Dubstep with lyrics from Stardust and Clipse riding over the top. One last big build and break and then it's time for the final 180 returning to the four/four madness to finish things off, enjoy! The Shoe Skool Sessions Podcast

The Shoe Skool Sessions Podcast Episode #26

It’s time for The Shoe Skool Sessions Podcast so you know what that means, it’s Friday!!! We have been keeping true to our new year’s resolution of giving you a new podcast every week, and this week is no different.  Episode #26 hit’s you right between the eyes with new tuna so fresh you’d swear its sushi, roll one up! Packed with huge tunes for almost three hours it’s easy to see why coming back to download this podcast regularly is essential to having a great week.

With all the new business that has already dropped this year you would figure Kick It would have some tricks up our sleeves and January’s featured artists are just the tip of the iceberg!. First off Sneaker & The Dryer make your body sweat by dropping Kwerk’s  “Werkout”,  with its big bangin bass its sure to have you shoveling those driveways in an instant.  Next up is the S&D boys themselves with the final version of their remix of Under Construction’s “In My Game”. They keep it close to the original while still giving you that amazing Broken House feel that S&D have become known for.

Lastly Paul Farace and Dave Berg hit you with the ping pong madness on their new tune “Fly Away” Ft. Kristen Campbell and MC Benzo. The song is so amazing that words just cannot do it justice, but the video for it sure does!!! See the epic battle between Sugar Fingers Farace and Diamond Dave as they fight it out to see who will be the champion of the dirty world of underground table tennis.  With the first release of 2012, Kwerk’s “Don’t Stop” coming w/ a massive VovKING Remix, and this new monster from Farace & Co., Kick It is going hard right off the starting line for 2012. Have a productive and safe weekend from everyone here at Kick It Recordings and we’ll see you next week with a new episode of The Shoe Skool Sessions hosted by Sneaker & The Dryer…KICK IT!!!

Also VovKING unveils his remix of Kwerks "Don't Stop" being released on Kick It Recordings January 19th.

Remembering his favorite gigs, first albums, and lessons learned from the music industry, this will give you a greater insight into the one like VovKING and his music.

Tapolsky & VovKING Live Video

The Kick It 12 - VovKING Edition

1. – At what age did you first find yourself gravitating towards electronic music and who were some of the artists outside of Electronic music that influenced that?

 I started listening to electonic music when i was 8, it was The Prodigy :) Then my musical tastes  changed & I payed more attention to Hip-Hop & Rock/Metal music. When i was 16 my friend gave me my first Splitloop's album 'Here on Business'... After that I was fascinated by electronic music, I learned about Breakbeat music & became a Dj..

2. – What was your very first Album? How about CD?

I have few digital releases at the moment. I think that I'm too young for an album. You need to understansd music much better than me to start make an album.

3. – How did you first get involved with the Electronic music culture and what was the first event that you attended?

I did not go to any events before i became a dj. I was born in a small town there wasn't any raves, festivals etc.

4. – Where was your favorite gig that you have had to date?

Think, that it might be in the end of January. It'll be the massive festival Ideology, formed by my friend - Dj Tapolsky. There will be fantastic line-up! We'll play with Calvertron, Dubsidia, The Prototypes, Chasing Shadows....

5. - Who have you been most proud to play alongside?

 I'm proud that I work with Splitloop at Toastclub at the moment :)

6. - Where would you most like to play that you have not yet?

Don't know... There are many festivals in Ukraine where I'll play in 2012. I really wanna visit the USA!

7. - What is your favorite tune you have released?

I think that my listeners must evaluate my work. As for me - I'm very happy with the 'Stimulator' & with my remix for Kwerk. I play only these 2 tunes from all stuff that  I made. Also I have few succesfull tunes & remixes with Tapolsky.

8. - Who is your favorite EDM artist? How about outside of EDM?

Splitloop! They make the most quality music to me. Also I Like General MIDI, Skrillex, Oliver Huntemann, Acess Denied, Alex Metric, old tunes from Rogue Element, Camo & Krooked, CTRL Z, and Gessafelstein.There are a lot artists outside of electronic music that I like. There are many Ukrainian & old Russian artists, Rock & Pop bands such as Ill Nino, Nickelback, Hatebreed, Flaw, Killowats & Vanek, Maroon 5, Eminem, David Guetta, Rhiana & much more :)

9. - Who are some artists you would like to collaborate with in the future?

General MIDI! His sound is fantastic. Also i would like to do something with Skrillex.

10. - What is your preferred software for producing? Hardware?

I use Ableton Live for production. I like Massive, Sylenth 1. For Hardware I use the NI Maschine & few controllers. Native Instruments is incredible - I love their products very much!

11. - What life lessons has the music industry taught you?

You must develop! You must develop all life long!!!

12. – What does the future hold for VovKING?

Only God knows it. I wanna start to play live. I produce only breaks as VovKING at the moment, also I want to try to make some other styles of music with different artist. We make Dubstep, Moombahton & other bass music with Tapolsky, I produce Techno with my friend Dub-Ro. I don't know what will be the result of that all...
