Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK

Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: As a music producer, I always try to blend organic and electronic sounds, always trying to combine the analog and virtual worlds of music. If I define this with genres, those probably would be in the line of Melodic House/Techno, Progressive, and Deep house, but always open to experimenting.
JØAK’s answer: It depends on the mood or what I want to transmit, in this released song called ”alive” contains a lot of house & progressive roots with a powerful melodic hymn to wrap the mind in a place that we want to enjoy and be honest with our thoughts with the message of the song.

Few words about your musical background and career?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: I’ve been making music for the past decade. As long as I can remember, I have always been in love with creating new things, and with music was love at first sight. I’ve been learning as I go, always trying to work with people who can help me grow as an artist, as well as a person. It all started back in 2014 with Kelders, in which we had a long run together, and collected beautiful song creations and forever-lasting memories. This year I decided to launch my personal project, and I am more motivated than ever, always giving it all of my energy to achieve as much as possible, and complete my goals as a music producer/Dj.
JØAK’s answer: My career has been a whole new adventure in the last 15 years working on my music. I have experienced many genres but in the last years I have been progressing from doing EDM to just only make music, I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into only one genre. I just want to make what I feel in the moment and enjoy the ride being sincere with my future audience.

Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: One of my best friends ever, back in 2013 showed me a track by Deadmau5, and I completely fell in love at that exact moment. Ever since that year, I’ve been either behind the decks or at my home studio trying to create as much music as I can.
JØAK’s answer: I don’t remember exactly the moment but every day I fall a little more in love with music, and that impulses me to keep creating new pieces all the time.

Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

“Skip your cheap headphones here, open your quality monitors or headset, don't hesitate to give bit volume. The sound quality here and the right sound set used here erupts all the beauty of harmonics layers. Listener steps into an emotional diving of grooves that hypnotize him in an endless music trip. Wonderful music from intro_p with -Promises- on Introp Music imprint.”

Intro_p is back out of his rabbit hole with 2 brilliantly soothing and absorbing tracks for his 9th EP called “Promises”. This EP underlines the common values of humanity, even if we have different cultures, religions, social backgrounds, etc. At the end of the day, we all have similar attitudes towards promises. It is ironic though, that “promises” are made by political leaders to divide us.

German producer Pretty Pink presents her debut single on Anjunabeats, ‘Come Back’.

Pre-lockdown, Pretty Pink was a sought-after name in the international club scene, known for official remixes of Armin van Buuren and Mr Probz as well as an underground edit of Daft Punk ‘Get Lucky’. She also owns and curates her label Wanderlust, as well as the label, podcast and concept live show Deep Woods, which has hosted the likes of Lost Frequencies, Milkwish, AKA AKA and more.

Produced during lockdown, ‘Come Back’ was debuted on her Deep Woods radio show and was a standout moment in her #AnjunaUnlocked set earlier this summer.

Risen from the deep & dark woods of the Harz in Germany, Pretty Pink made her way through the steaming and raging international club zone to manifest her belief into the most intimate basement raves and the biggest festival stages – ultimately settling into an exclusive group of DJs that have the skill to work both levels of the scene. Her unique performances cultivated a great following across Europe and continue to broaden the horizons of dance music. Pretty Pink never shies away from a challenge as she continues to grow and evolve in her career and in her sound.

Through a regular stream of high quality mixes in her radio show ‘DEEP WOODS’ she has begun to turn heads in underground circles. Within the span of two years, it landed on 30 leading radio slots worldwide and reached 1 million streams via her socials. ‘DEEP WOODS’ consists of DEEP SENSATION and KLING KLANG, Pretty Pink’s self-branded residency and well known event series that have attracted over 8,000 festival guests. After playing alongside respectable tastemakers at a myriad of revered venues in her homeland – Nature One, Sonne Mond Sterne, Airbeat One, New Horizon, World Club Dome and more – her loyal fanbase and bookings began to skyrocket. Pretty Pink has garnered a devoted fan base across the globe through her diverse productions, radioshow and stirring live shows, which launch listeners on an unforgettable musical journey.

Shifting her focus toward production, Pretty Pink has amply proved her serious talent in the studio as well as behind the decks. Whilst Pretty Pinks DJ sets are very energetic, she also manifests her wandering soul on the producer side. Pretty’s own music has provided her with the chance to reveal a kinetic combination of dark, pulsating house and tech-house, driven beats, and natural energetic melodic compositions paired often with her own vocals. Pretty Pink had her recording debut in 2013 with an unforgettable edit of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’, which demanded the attention of the scene with massive national and international support. With her clearly uncanny ability to create instantly astounding records she extended with ‘GUNFIRE’ her follow-up EP on Suara, which climbed to #2 on Beatport Deep House Chart of 2016. Pretty Pink possess a long list of high conceptual tracks like RUN, MY KICK, FLURAMA, TRICK, CHANGE on captivating sounding labels like Suara, Armada Deep, Sony, Warner, and Universal. Forming tracks to uncommercial club anthems was her mission, which allowed her unique signature sound to make remixes for Armin van Buuren, Lost Frequencies and also for 90’s tastemakers. Gracing the pages of notable electronic publications such as DJ Mag Mexico, EARMILK, Magnetic Magazine and more, Pretty Pink is quickly becoming one to watch on the fronts of the electronic scene.

Things aren’t slowing down anytime soon as Pretty Pink’s most recent single ‘PURE’ topped the Beatport charts for over six weeks at #3 on Progressive House. The single has even caught the ear of uber tastemakers such as CamelPhat, Lane 8, Josh Butler, Monkey Safari and more who have all featured the single in their sets. On a hunt to envelop and solidify her sound, she jump-started her own record label, Wanderlust Music.

For now, with her upcoming releases, studio sessions, ongoing radio show to residencial performances, record label and a packed tour diary, Pretty’s showing signs of becoming a unique individual artist. Pretty Pink blends a tasteful sound with a twist of madness that elevates the crowd to new heights. With years of experience under her belt, the multi-talented workaholic has created a brand built to last. She will stop at nothing to continue cultivating and developing her sound. Time may pass and trends will fade, but the Pretty Pink’s sound will never cease to impress. Her massive accomplishments only mark the beginning of her future conquests.

pølaroit – Cala (Video)

Categories: House, The Latest, Video|Tags: , , |

“Take it easy and everything will work fine, this kind of mood we received with the new minimal melodic downtempo track -Cala- of -pølaroit-. A carefully selection of sounds in use, matched fine within the overall mix and unfolding a beautiful story telling, which works perfect to laid back and daydream. ”

Space and time both play a role in pølaroit’s music. A felt connection to Jonas and Marius’ hometowns in Northern Germany, their geography, as well as a sense of pertaining to a specific instant in time, a generation, are both expressed in the duo’s strain of melodic deep house, “We see our music as a snapshot of time and music,” they say. The chosen name for the duo, pølaroit, is a reference to this idea of capturing a moment and it tributes both their northern roots (Polar) as well as the birthplace of techno (Detroit).

pølaroit’s debut EP, ‘expedition into’ (out via Stil vor Talent) defined the duo’s moody sound somewhere in between melancholic downtempo and uplifting melodies, and captivated audiences around Germany. Their current EP, Pure, released via Christian Löffler’s Ki Records, continues to draw on the dichotomy of these two emotions but this time around there’s a bigger sense of presence and liveliness. Through the use of field recordings and vocals, pølaroit wants to rescue the human and organic element of creativity in their music.
