531 – Pete Dorling
Working the house music game since his teens, Essex born DJ and producer Pete Dorling has really been hitting his stride over the last couple of
years on a real rocket ride from running parties in based out of his Southend hometown, to playing all over the world as a touring artist.
Having been involved in everything from early 90’s raves to pirate radio, he has had a personal and passionate experience of the electronic scene, which influences his sound today. As hardworking in the studio as he is in the DJ booth, Pete’s unique blend of house and techno have seen his tracks picked up by a raft of highly respected imprints, including Simon Baker and Geddes’ label No Fit State (with a remix from Mr. Baker himself, no less), Viva Warriors, and the mighty Hot Creations – Pete’s track “Palonga” being featured in Carl Cox’s Radio 1 Essential Mix, and most recent signing “Manyana” lighting up dancefloors all over the globe last Summer.
Pete has also set his sights on his own label for 2017 – Interzone Music Club’s first EP dropped in March (a split EP with label cohort Spatial Awareness), with more hugely exciting music in the pipeline from some amazing producers, including of course, Pete himself. We are excited to bring him to the Data Transmission Podcast this week!
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A quick journey through my mind, converted into music form.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Old: Michel Cleis & Klement Bonelli Ft. Martin Wilson – Marvinello /
New: Tom Jay – Strings of Noel. That’s two…. Sorry, but I love them both equally…
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Lots of unreleased music mixed with some tracks from the past that you won’t have heard in a while (if at all).
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
There’s two actually – I played at The scene in Swansea a couple of weeks ago which was amazing, I love the Welsh crowd… They always seem so excited and up for it! Second one had to The Basement, Lincoln. That place is like a miniature Fabric up north. I absolutely love it in there!
What have you got coming up?
Busy as ever gig wise, and looking forward to a busy season in Ibiza! Release wise, there’s quite a lot coming up that I cant talk about yet – but confirmed releases on Snatch and TAKE Records, and more to come from my new label Interzone Music Club.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Absolutely! Thank you so much for listening to my mix, I hope to see you out and about at a party (or afterparty) near you 😉
