Rowan and Den (aka Sirenize) have been busy in the studio, and busy clocking appearances on Resident !
Compromised is one of a host of demo tracks the pair have been polishing. With a maiden release for Bedrock in the bag there's interest from other labels keen on grabbing some of the Sirenize sound. We suggest they get in there quick.
Until then head over to Sirenize's Soundcloud and grab a couple for free downloads that, until now, have only been available to a handful of the big DJs:http://soundcloud.com/sirenize/tracks Sirenize Bio
Sirenize is the latest project involving Rowan 'Breeder' Blades and rising star Dennis White (aka ThermalBear of Traum). This is their third appearance on Resident after being on Episodes 031 (Empty Your Mind), 046 (Everybody) and 050 (Modular).
Having provided the opener for Bedrock_Underground Sounds of Miami, with 'Everybody' a track that John Digweed had been using for several months early on in his sets to create the right vibe, the pairing have had previous Bedrock releases as Rowdent.
Blades will be familiar to many for his work as duos like Breeder & Pariah, as well as for his work alongside the likes of John 'Quivver' Graham. Omid 16B & Chris Lake.
Complimenting Rowan is the classical percussionist and modern electronic production fiend Dennis White (aka ThermalBear] who was picked up by Sasha as part of the select group of talented producers that stood out as part of a Burn Studios & IMC (International Music Summit) tie in. Dennis's unique sound has been picked up by the über cool Traum Schallplatten stable with him remixing the likes of Minilogue, Applescal, Fairmont & Thomas Bjerring as well as Sasha's 'Cut Me Down' which was a highlight of Dave Seaman's latest Renaissance Masters Series.Rowan Blades gives a further insight into Sirenize :
"I was fortunate enough to meet a very talented young producer called Dennis White. He was already on the road himself, making tracks and mixes regularly. For the first time in many years, I had met someone that primarily I liked as a person, and secondly had immense talent to boot. Whats important is that you can actually bear each other, and understand the different roles one takes. Dennis doesn't need anyone else to make amazing music, he can do it alone, however, he was short on experience and just wanted to move things on a little. Since knowing Dennis I have learnt a hell of a lot and he has influenced my direction and tastes vastly."
This duo never compromises, always staying true to the underground with a strict artistic ethos & integrity. Sirenize represents a more diverse palate of sounds, and is the culmination of some serious studio time, spent exploring sonic possibilities and experimenting with rich textures, tones and percussion. Sirenize have been working with a range of up and coming vocalists, with deep tantalising and intoxicating results.02. Soulfire - Eris (Marcelo Vasami Remix) [Soulfire Music | Promo]Soulfire Bio
Since taking up DJ’ing aged 19 years old in 2000, the Liverpool-born producer has been on a steep upward trajectory. Now he’s ready to take the next step towards global dance floor supremacy with his own unique brand of progressive and tech house.
Initially inspired by Paul Oakenfold’s legendary Cream Courtyard sets, he bagged his first DJ residency after just six months behind the decks. After submitting a demo to a promoter of super-club Cream’s warm-up bar, Mello Mello, the 19 year-old was handed a bi-monthly slot.
Buoyed by this early success, he began promoting his own parties soon after. After a brief period warming up the weekend on Thursday nights, his parties at the Lemon Lounge swiftly moved to Friday nights and became a roaring success.
Thanks to the success of his parties, he was given the chance to play at Liverpool’s hottest club nights, alongside many of his musical heroes – internationally renowned DJs such as Dave Seaman, Futureshock, Sandy Rivera and Quivver. It allowed him the opportunity to fine-tune his already impressive DJ skills – an opportunity he grasped with both hands.
But it was in 2003 that he took his first step towards international success. It was then that his first musical productions began to see the light of day. He produced a number of much-played remixes of childhood heroes Depeche Mode, New Order (in collaboration with friend and fellow Liverpool producer Paul Harrison) and Fleetwood Mac. Plays on some of the UK’s biggest dance radio stations soon followed, with strong support from Juice FM, Radio City, Wish FM and GTFM. DJ support was strong, too, giving Lee a profile outside of his home city for the very first time.
Since then, he has stepped up his music production output, providing tracks and remixes for a variety of labels including his very own label Soulfire Downloads.
Soulfire Downloads has been a runaway success since launching in 2006. The label’s releases, which often boast hard-hitting remixes from the likes of Stan Kolev, Soundexile, Spirit Catcher and Jet Project, have been supported by many of the world’s top DJs. Since joining Beatport in June 2010, Soulfire Downloads releases have been played by Sasha, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Steve Lawler, Joris Voorn, Nick Warren, Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez and many more!03.
