EPISODE #091 BY THE REASON Y

8/19/2019


A mix of creativity, ingenuity, and intensity are the key components to create the fascinating Techno of the "The Reason Y” and although 2015 marked the beginning of this new project from Frederik Laaser, The Reason Y has, in a short time created a heavy buzz with his mind-blowing music, high energy gigs and a top notch event ’TRY Land’. 

“Feeling the vibe and connecting with the audience is what keeps me going. Those magic moments created by Techno is the primary reason I am here doing this". 

Frederik was born in the northern part of Germany and grew up in the city of Schwerin where he decided to spend all his time and money buying vinyl and honing his mixing skills before finishing High School and moving to Berlin. 

"Music always played a big role in my family. Between my Mom’s encouragement to push me to play a musical instrument and the big independent music collection of my Dad, music always had a profound influence in my life. “ 

With little effort, Frederik knew in which direction he was destined to go. With this type of musical background and a deep passion for hunting restlessly for new and outstanding music, it was only natural for him to find his way behind the controls. 

Before the founding of "The Reason Y“ Frederik used to play under several other pseudonyms for more than 10 years starting with gigs in 2006 at his local Club Komplex and eventually at Fusion Festival in Germany which would groom him to find his way onto the map of the international Techno scene of today. 

Over the last few years he's refined his own style and signature to engage the audience in any environment no matter the time. His experience and knowledge behind the mixer as well as being an avid raver in the crowd has helped him to spread and unfold his creativity in the studio as well. Quickly his own productions caught the attention of massive acts such as Pan-Pot and Victor Calderone from New York. Being part of Pan-Pot’s Second State label helped Frederik to spread his sound across the globe finding his name on Festivals such as HYTE to Sunwaves and renowned clubs like Labyrinth in Belgium to Loft Club in Germany. 

He also can call himself a resident of the famous Watergate Club in his hometown Berlin, where he is hosting his own event called TRY Land sharing the decks with legends like Nicole Moudaber, Julian Jeweil and Technasia. 

Right now Frederik spends most of his time in his studio working on new material as he continues on his path to exposing the world to the trademark sound of The Reason Y. May the music be with you and see you on the dance floor soon.

LOCAL HEROES #024 BY DANSOR

4/29/2019

Dansor is fast cementing herself as one of Holland’s hotly tipped electronic music artists. Founder of Comport Records, the Hungarian-born Producer and Media Technologist is also the former winner of Pete Tong’s Bedroom Bedlam and Dave Clarke’s ADE Demolition panel. An established Live Act as well as a DJ, Dansor’s performances have graced Sziget Festival, Ozora Festival, Balaton Sound, not to mention an inventive appearance at ADE where she performed her debut album ‘Theory Of Love’ live alongside jazz musicians, or her interactive AV performance during TEDx with a sensor jacket and Ewa Pepper violinist.

Born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, she grew up listening to Duran Duran, Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk before moving to the Netherlands in 1997 - a switch that would play a significant role in intensifying her relationship with all things house and techno. Throwing herself into the scene, she found home in the work of electronic acts such as Art Of Noise, Leftfield, Front 242 and clubs such as “Feketelyuk” (Black Hole) and “Zöldség-Gyümölcs” (Fruits and Vegetables), not to mention the acid house parties that sprung up during the time.

Acquiring a taste for illegal raves in her home of Budapest, she later left due to the country’s economic situation to make her way to the Netherlands in search of a new lease of life. It was here where she acquired her first set of decks and also made friends with Dutch producer Georgio Schultz who pushed her towards installing Cubase on her Atari computer. She would later establish her ‘WomenWaves’ parties in her adopted town of Haarlem, followed by ‘Budapest Delight’, 'BLD', 'HOTCHPOTCH' and 'BLEND' events in Amsterdam.

The "DANSOR" project was born during the final semester of her Media Technology studies in the ‘00s. A live act that could be controlled without the need to stand behind a laptop, it didn’t immediately set pulses racing - with even the lady herself admitting that it was way ahead of its time. What it did prove beyond any doubt, however, is that Dansor is a producer not intent on taking the traditional route. . Such avant-garde approaches course throughout her productions too. Unsurprisingly, then, they’ve been picked up by a host of seminal worldly imprints including Little Mountain, This Is Recordings, Nervous Records and Tulipa. This is replicated in similar vogue via her Comport Records that also plays host to her intricate sound by incorporating elements from house to techno to dub, jazz/funk, italo disco, new wave and indie.

Ahead of her debut album ‘Theory Of Love’, Dansor has released a selection of singles from the long player, including remixes from Channel X's Jiggler, Animal Picnic, Thomas Gandey, Zoe Xenia, Sezer Uysal, Just Her and Natural Flow. These have received support from the likes of DJ Mag, Complex, Electronic Groove, Ibiza Voice, When We Dip, 8 day Montreal and her remix of Digitaria's ‘Useless Fantasies’ even picked up support from Rolling Stone.

Dropping her debut album at the start of 2016, ‘Theory of Love’ garnered a glowing print review in DJ Mag, radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Nemone, John Digweed and Jonty Skrufff, not to mention topping the Beatport charts with the release hitting no.1 in Breaks, no.14 Electronica, no.18 Deep House, no.23 in the Tech House - resulting in an overall Top 100 appearance at no.93. Now, with her live set evolving and Comport Records maturing, 2019 looks to be the most propitious year yet for this bright and promising individual.
