From Las Vegas with Love! - Interview with MarkOne & Kevin Shawn

After releasing their first EP on Club 86 Recordings we sat down with Mark and Kevin to discuss about their past, present and future. This dynamic duo is set to make an real impact with their trademark melodic progressive sounds and there is surely more interesting stuff coming out later this year!

Tell me about where you grew up?

Kevin - I was born in Dallas Texas and grew up in a little town called Kennedale. In 2001 I joined the military and got stationed in Las Vegas of all places! I moved to Los Angeles for 5 years and have since moved back to Las Vegas.

Mark- I was born in Chicago, but moved to Las Vegas in 1991. Been here ever since.

When did you get interested in music?

Kevin - My stepfather used to play the guitar all the time when I was younger and I grew up listening to classic rock for the most part. In high school I attended a rave in Dallas, around 2000 and from that day I mostly listened to electronic music of all sorts.

Mark- Because of my parents, I grew up listening to music starting from motown to michael jackson. And then on top of that, my sister was listening to 80's & pop music. So there was constantly music around me. As I got older, I started listening to hip-hop and a bit of rock & punk music.
In high school, a class mate of mine gave me a cassette tape that had an old school/hardcore dj mix on it. I've been a fan ever since.

When did you start DJing/producing – and what or who were your early passions and influences?

Kevin - I was a DJ before I was I was making music, wish I was making music sooner! I started to DJ around 2002 and producing around 2007. The older trance sets really had an influence on me,. Paul Oakenfold early on with his 1999 Essential mix world tour, Tranceport and Travelling.

Mark- I started out as a DJ back in 1995. I got interested in hip-hop culture, especially DJing. Started out spinning hip-hop. In 1996, went on a vacation to Chicago for a week and came across a house mix cd. I liked the energy and vibe I was hearing from it, so from then on I switched up my DJing sound from then on.

What do you personally consider to be the incisive moments in your artistic career?

Kevin & Mark - Signing our first track was a sign that we were doing something right that was a moment we'll never forget!

Tell me something about your upcoming productions?

Kevin & Mark - We have a few ideas bouncing around, and a bit of finished content we will be releasing soon. We just go with the flow and see where it takes us.

What you think is the best dance music track ever made?

Kevin - Amoebassassian - Piledriver (Grayed Out Mix)

Mark - Tori Amos - Professional Widow (Armand Van Helden Mix)

Thank you so much for your time! Anything you want to say to your fans who are reading this?

Thank you for the support. Keep an eye out for more music coming soon!

Check out their latest Ep here:

MarkOne & Kevin Shawn - Drift / Terraform OUT NOW!

Summer comes in double doses on this EP! MarkOne & Kevin Shawn brings you Drift & Terraform, both stamped with their warm trademark sound & athmosphere. Drift is more easily approachable and so it takes the drivers seat on this one, while Terraform is a bit more mystical piece and needs a couple of plays before it opens up. All in all, this is a great release you want to have!

From Club 86 to Armada - Interview with Kajis

Kajis (Sami Huttunen) is a producer and a DJ born and hailing out from Helsinki, Finland.
We sat down with Kajis and asked him a couple of questions about his past, present and future.

Now with a brand new single signed to Armada Music his future looks brighter than ever.

Tell me about where you grew up?

Born in Helsinki but I've lived the majority of the time in Vantaa. Been shuffling between these two cities a lot when it comes to studying or work and since it only takes me 20 minutes to get to one another.

When did you get interested in music?

I've always been facinated by music ever since I started playing the early Playstation games in the 90's. Wipeout, Need For Speed etc. They were all great games that had outstanding soundtracks. Also movie-scores are something I'm really into.

When did you start DJing/producing – and what or who were your early passions and influences?

Well the interest towards electronic music in general started way back in 1996 or 97 when Robert Miles came out with the tune ”Children”. I was already playing around with a program called eJay with my dad's work-laptop back then. DJ'ing didn't start until 2006-2007 when I went out for the first time of my life to a real club. I then decided that I want to be the guy who gives out the same good vibes to people that I experienced.

What do you personally consider to be the incisive moments in your artistic career?

Definitely the first official ”gig” or booking that I had. It was at a waterpark in a event called Pacifique, which is probably one of Finland's biggest events experience-wise when it comes to dance music. I played a 2.5h chillout set and I remember shitting my pants from being so nervous. Other than that, signing with Armada is probably a milestone I will never, ever forget and hooking up with DJ Orkidea.

Tell me something about your upcoming productions?

Too many unfinished stuff laying around at the moment and it might take a while for something brand new to come out.. Right now I'm really a perfectionist when it comes to producing and I want to take that ”next step” and only release quality stuff. There is a remix I did for Mistique Music and a chillout track that will come out on a compilation under Armada.

What do you think is the best dance music track ever made?

Cliche answer: ”Too many to mention only one” but Lost Tribe – Gamemaster is something that never fails to disappoint.

Thank you so much for your time! Anything you want to say to your fans who are reading this?

See you on the dancefloor! :)
