When alligators want to fuck or fight, they roar. Females initiate the call, males follow, and they sometimes gang up by the thousands to throw tones so deep that the entire Everglades shakes. Some of these extreme rumbles occur at the level of infrasound, low-frequency oscillations that you feel more than you hear. It's a phenomenon also produced by avalanches, waterfalls, earthquakes, and Miami bass.
Over the years, Bayfront Park has felt its share. And this weekend, it'll face another tsunami of rumble when Bassnectar and Pretty Lights team up for a two-night stand in downtown. This collaborative concert, called Basslights, is reported to be so deep and heavy that it may crack the park off of the mainland and send a wild island floating off into Biscayne Bay.
Claude VonStroke, the Claudefather of Dirtybird records, the big guy behind the ghetto-booty-tech madness that defies genre limitations, is enjoying some highly-deserved time in the spotlight. He's built his empire from the ground up for years, and 2013 has seen him reap serious benefits.
But it wasn't always that way. Just a few years ago, most people had never heard of Dirtybird or VonStroke. Put him on a big stage among big names, and he all but fell into the cracks of the sidewalk. With much dedication, perseverance, and oodles of talent, he's turned his luck around and taught American masses to stray from the shallow end. But now, he wants to make moves again - into the rap game?
We submit to you part two of our recent Claudeversation.
Markus discusses 'Buenos Aires '13', New World Punx, and what we can expect from him for the remaining of the year.
Markus Schulz doesn’t show any sign of ever slowing down. With Buenos Aires ’13 just released this week and Scream II coming out early next year, the Coldharbour founder couldn’t be any happier. We had a chance to talk to Markus this past weekend while he was in Gainesville, Florida, just a few hours from his home in Miami. Markus chatted about his experience on the Groove Cruise, what it’s like working with Ferry Corsten, and his awesome fans.
Congratulations on the release of Buenos Aires ’13. How does it feel?
It feels really cool because we worked on that compilation for quite a while, so it’s cool that it’s finally out. I think that every year it gets a little bit more challenging because you want to do something different. The bar gets raised every year, and you want to try to top the last edition. We took a long time on this one. It came out a little later in the year than it usually does, but the response has been very positive and I’m really happy.
You also released your remix of ‘Venom One’ last week. What was your inspiration for this track?
With ‘Venom One’, I think it’s just the song and that amazing riff. That’s what really inspired me. I remember when I first heard the original demo with that riff I thought, “This sounds massive.” So, I think I wanted to put my twist to it, you know my little dirty baseline. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I’ve been playing it out in all of my sets for the last month, closed out the Ibiza season with that track. It was one of the biggest tracks over the past couple of months for me in Ibiza.
