INTERVIEW: Morgan Page (2013)

Morgan Page is one of the nicest producer/DJs on the scene.  A major part of his new tour – Morgan Page Presents – is focused on rising talent with Project 46, Walden, Topher Jones, Beltek, Maor Levi, and Audien joining him on the bus tour.  Then there is the 3D element which aims to bring a more immersive experience to the crowd.  Talking to him is liking talking to an old friend, and when you think back to all of his massive records over the past ten years (“Falling,” “Call My Name,” “In the Air,” “Longest Road,” “Body Work,” “Carry Me,” “Fight For You”), they all exude that same kind of warmth.  I met up and chatted with Morgan Page at the Promo Only Summer Sessions last month right before he was going to launch the MPP3D bus tour.  Its definitely a tour you do not want to miss.

RS: Have you ever done a bus tour before?
Morgan Page: No, this is the first one.

RS: What was the inspiration for it?
Morgan Page: The biggest thing was just to go and tour with a team of people that I believe in and champion. To do the kind of production that we want to do we need a bus and a semi-truck to haul all of our gear. We can’t fly with all that stuff, so that was definitely one of our big motivators and we also wanted to go big and do 3D.

INTERVIEW: BT (2013)

Producer, artist, and tech guru Brian Transeau stands alone as one of the most unique visionaries in the electronic dance music world. Spanning nearly twenty years, his music has reached the worlds of clubs, radio, TV, movies, and video games.  His new album A Song Across Wires is probably his most accessible to date, inspired by the current sounds of electronic dance music as filtered through his creative mind and rendered by his futuristic production techniques.

Ron Slomowicz: I have listened to your new album a couple of different times and it feels like I am at a festival, hearing all the big records at once – but really well-produced.
Brian Transeau (BT): Awesome, I really love hearing that. Honestly, it is the first time in years that I have been really inspired by dance music and I feel like this record is one that my fans have wanted me to make for years and I just wasn’t ready to. In this moment, I am deeply inspired by what is actually happening in dance music. It feels so good to hear that, I feel the same way and I can’t wait to share this record with my fans and peers.
