DJ Alex Graham releases new dance single ‘At Night’

The DJ and composer of digital dance music known internationally as Alex Graham has released his latest house-music single, “At Night.” The track has been released as an independent track outside the influence of the corporate music industry. Pulsing, pounding, vibrant and grooving, “At Night” from Alex Graham is the latest proof that the tradition of house music is more alive in 2015 than ever before.

Alex Graham is a multidimensional musician with experience playing 14 different instruments. A true veteran of the house-music underground, Graham has been working as a DJ for more than two decades. His expanding credits as a music producer span the last seven years. The present release of “At Night” stands out as a prominent example of his skills, being a much touted, updated bootleg remix of an already highly acclaimed classic.

Alex Graham has been DJing since the age of 14. He has performed as the headlining act at private parties, illicit raves, and as a special guest for many other live acts. His experience in classical music connects him to many corners and avenues not often associated with house music, a fact he has not taken for granted. His classical music training may also be heard in the characteristic way his music transitions from one movement to the next, sometimes gradual, sometimes unpredictable, but always intuitively and in a way that excites the listener and provokes plenty of action on the dance floor.

Graham has extensively performed live as a DJ in the British Isles and abroad, and has shared the stage with such popular artists as Wally Lopez, Bodyrox, MOS, and a great many others. His music has been graced by master vocalists like Pepper MaShay, Amrick Channa, Angie Brown, Rozalla, Hanna Jones and Toyah Wilcox.

Some of the underground music industry’s best labels have published Alex Graham music, including Skint Records, who released his double A-sided single with plans for more, and Miss Moneypenny’s, who released a triple-CD album featuring no fewer then eight Alex Graham original tracks. Still more high-profile labels have expressed interest in music by this eminent DJ, ensuring that listeners and dancers alike have plenty from him on the way.

Graham has hinted that a fresh, new live set is in the works and may be ready for live performance as early as winter 2015.

“At Night” from Alex Graham is available online worldwide.

DJ HRTZ releases popular new single ‘Accidentally Acid’

Australian digital music composer HRTZ has released her premier dance single, “Accidentally Acid.” The prominent track features original vocals by Canadian DJ Kwe. It has been proudly published as an independent release outside the influence of the corporate music industry. Pulsing with groove, subtly unstoppable, and so easy to fall into that fans of all genres can agree on it, “Accidentally Acid” is a traditional house music anthem with a modern edge that suggests HRTZ will be at the top of her game for years to come.

HRTZ cites music influences from the UK house-music scene, such as Maya Jane Coles and Carl Cox, as well as Russian DJ Nina Kraviz. Listeners familiar with the works of these digital composers will recognize common traits between them: tight, spacious beats, minimal instrumentation, and slow builds that rely on tasteful texturing rather than “are you all ready for this”-style crescendos. Like the music of HRTZ, herself, this is electronic music that has much more to offer than your kid brother’s MacBook masterpiece.

The difference may lie in HRTZ’s musical roots, which differ greatly from that of many digital composers today.

“I was originally a singer-songwriter,” HRTZ writes. “I wrote blues and folk songs and played around the open mic nights in Melbourne. I also played an open mic night in Canada while on holiday and in San Francisco, too. It was fun to experience a different audience from the Australian one.”

Another key quality her new single boasts is that of an underlying complexity. Its patient, classy minimalism allows for a tacit communication between the music and the music fan. It isn’t blaring, isn’t gaudy, isn’t obnoxious. This electronic music doesn’t yell – it speaks.

“’Accidentally Acid’ is about letting go of the daily grind and realising it’s not about the gadgets and the quick sugar rushes that we experience in life,” writes HRTZ. “It’s about something much deeper than that. It’s personal to every listener.”

Maybe that’s why her single has collected 6,000 plays in the few weeks it’s been available for listening – just on her official SoundCloud page alone – and this with precious little hype but word of mouth.

HRTZ (Toyah Hoetzel) is a Melbourne-based house-music producer and DJ affiliated with Beyond The Beat UK & AU. She grew up getting into gay clubs underage in the industrial areas of Melbourne’s grimy Collingwood district. She found her feet amongst the lovers of vocal house where sweaty, bass-driven remixes of divas such as Whitney Houston were a regular vice for many.

Originally a classically trained guitarist and then a singer-songwriter, HRTZ loves and focuses on melodic shifts in tension in her sets, and by doing so commands control of the dance floor. Inspired by the electro movement in Melbourne’s more obscure clubs like Honky Tonks, Eurotrash Pop Shop and The Croft Institute in the early 2000s, HRTZ was exposed to such legends as Ajax, John Course and Carl Cox, where her love of vocal, electro and house were entrenched.

HRTZ returned to her musical roots on a digital platform in 2013 pioneering TopDeckDJs and entered as a newcomer into Melbourne’s club scene with a variety of sounds from house, tech-house, trap, moombahton and bass-heavy EDM sets. She now produces what she loves, indie dance and deep-house tunes, and is gaining momentum as a DJ, producer, and digital-sample artist.

“Accidentally Acid” by HRTZ and feat. DJ Kwe is available online worldwide beginning Aug. 31, 2015. Get in early, house-music fans.
