Studio DMI’s Mixing and Mastering Engineer Scotty Banks is bringing back the artistic integrity to electronic dance music in the studio and honing his skills with his mentor; Grammy nominated engineer Luca Pretolesi.
Scotty had a humble beginning in the music world where he was able to test his mixing and mastering techniques as a DJ, gaining live, first-hand feedback through audience reaction to his music on the dance floor. He now works at Studio DMI with Luca and applies expertise and attention to detail that come from thousands of hours of working with some of the top artists from around the world, adding finishing touches to songs unlike anyone else.
Bringing people together through music. It’s a simple concept yet incredibly powerful when executed correctly and that’s exactly what PeaceTreaty has accomplished with their quality productions and live performances. PeaceTreaty is the musical partnership of Los Angeles-natives Josh Anaya and Angelo Patino-Patroni who started their career playing local underground warehouse parties a few years ago. The duo was quickly recognized for their expert studio work and signed by Steve Aoki to Dim Mak in 2011 when they released their first EP with the label. Outside of their original compositions, PeaceTreaty are prodigious remixers and have been commissioned to rework tracks by dance music titans including Diplo, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, Dada Life, and Sidney Samson, to name a few. Between concocting hits in the studio for imprints like Dim Mak, Mad Decent, and Fool’s Gold, and commandingthe decks at festivals such as Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival, Nocturnal, Electric Zoo, and Beyond Wonderland, PeaceTreaty continues to prove themselves as melodic house mavens.
Talk about mega collaborations, this release combining the talents of Pegboard Nerds, NGHTMRE and Krewella is absolutely massive. This collaboration was first previewed live in Los Angeles at a Pegboard Nerds show, where Krewella came out as special guests to sing the collaboration live.
The son of a musician, Paul came up as a young DJ in the late ’70s spinning Funk in Covent Garden. Not what some might have expected from one of Trances preeminent masters. But he knew then music would be his life. In the ’80s 2 life-changing trips took place. The first in 1984 where he spent several months living in New York City working as A&R man for the famed Champion Records signing DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, as well as Salt-n-Pepa. He also became promoter and British agent for the Beastie Boys and Run-D.M.C.
OOVEE is not merely a project, OOVEE is also a provocation. An attempt to do something new, to start from scratch, to take a chance; starting with the name. It is an expression of a desire to be consistent in our choices and prepared to swim against the tide; to create something fresh and avoid the sensation of most listeners of having heard it all before.
OOVEE is the challenge that Dan e Momo, two Milan-based producers and DJs, have taken up, using the experience that has seen them take the stage at Tomorrowland and play alongside some of the world’s leading DJs.
OOVEE is also an ambitious combination of elegant, simple and transparent musical genres. Funky sounds mixed with electronic music to create new, bright and luminous vibes.
OOVEE is a sincere project and, like the music itself, it is just what it seems, nothing more, nothing less.
