Audiophile By Charlie Hedges
SANDER VAN DOORN
I recently caught up with Sander for the November edition of my Charlie Hedges Presents Podcast on iTunes; you’ll probably know the name he’s played all over the world with an arsenal of big productions to his name, but as he is a producer at heart and told me he would choose producing over DJing any day of the week. Look out for some new sounds and tracks early next year. Interestingly, I found out that his best friend and ex-colleague gave him the name ‘Van Doorn’ which he said sticks better than his original
surname name ‘Ketelaars’. I’m excited to see where Sander takes his work and sound in 2016 so watch this space.
SIGALA – SWEET LOVIN
Sigala interestingly started their music career early on after learning to play piano at 8 years old; with influences over the years from the likes of Pendulum, Sub Focus and The Prodigy you can certainly hear that in the piano-based elements, as well as the distinctive jazz chords too. He’s working hard not only promoting this own music, but also writing tunes for other artists, Ella Eyre being one of those.
DIPLO & SLEEPY TOM – BE RIGHT THERE
Diplo has teamed up with the extremely talented Sleepy Tom. Adding lots of bassline to the track, Roska and Royal T are already added to the remixes of ‘Be Right There’ – an amazing collab and rework of an original tune. It’s a definite crossover track and one which has just been voted one of the hottest records in the world right now.
JACOB PLANT FT EXAMPLE – REFLECTIONS
Jacob is definitely one to watch at the minute. Signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation and working on a number of projects, he has teamed up with Example on this one that features his familiar vocal talent and then Jacob adding his bassy, hard hitting sound. I’ve got high hopes for this single!
JOE STONE – FREAK (AND YOU KNOW IT)
Joe’s first single that crossed over onto the airwaves sampled the vocals of Montel Jordan with ‘This Is How We Do It’ and playing again with the 90’s sound, he manages to bring it up to date alongside the current house music sound. This track has already had lots of support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo and Nicky Romero so looks set to be a hit for sure!
MARTIN SOLVEIG – +1
Martin Solveig is back with this single which supports his future house sound – ‘+1’ and features the amazing vocals of Sam White. Its leading bassline makes it a great crossover track between club and radio, the perfect balance to hopefully get Martin back into the UK charts to head for an even higher chart position than the last.
