DT683 – Anime Edge & Dance
After blazing into the hearts and minds of the international music community with a modernized twist on low-end house and indebted four-to-the-floor, Amine Edge & DANCE look set to continue their meteoric rise with another string of sell-out shows and prime-time festival slots in 2017.
Hailing from Southern France, Amine Edge & DANCE have built their own musical empire, drawing inspiration from early House, Phili Soul, Hip-Hop and everything in between. The men from Marseille have set about developing their own signature sound and are starting to show their true talent and versatility as producers. The pair recently released the, ‘FCK UR OPINION’ EP via independent label Desolat, helmed by the legendary Loco Dice, which featured three monster techno tracks oozing hard bass and showcasing another slightly darker side of the AE&D sound. 2017 will see a slew of new singles including the landmark 50th release on their burgeoning label CUFF, a collaboration with velvet vocalist SerGy that has already garnered support from Pete Tong at Radio 1 and beyond.
In 2016, the globe-trotting duo capped another phenomenal year by being crowned winners of the “Bass” category at the 2016 DJ Awards. To become the cream of the sub-laden crop, Amine Edge & DANCE had to fend off the challenge of an internationally renowned group of bass-heavy heavyweights including Andy C, Chase and Status, Hannah Wants, DJ EZ and more. This was a testament to their longevity and musical evolution, from bass-heavy hip-hop-infused up-starts to heavyweight headline act.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
AED: This mix contains some of our most recent productions and signatures on CUFF, From Deep To Tech-House and everything in between.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
AED: It’s hard to choose one as they all have a different vibe, but let’s say that « Let The Benjies Circulate » is one of our favourites because it has a lot of energy but soul at the same time, it’s a banger that doesn’t sound like it.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
AED: Probably the quality of the mix, it’s mixed in key so all tracks sound good together, it makes it sounds like one big track.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
AED: Last month we played at Chinese Laundry in Sydney Australia, it was incredible, Small venue, law celling, dope crowd, free to play whatever you want and they give you so much love.
What have you got coming up?
AED: We’ve got a few EPs coming this year on Armada, Spinnin’ Deep, Toolroom, Etiquette, RealTone, Sweat It Out, Cukooland, Voyeur, Nervous, Lost, Desert Heart, but also we are working on growing CUFF parties so we are doing a US Tour this year with Clyde P and Lucati, and of course many festivals in the UK, Canada, Brazil, Defected Ibiza, Defected Croatia and Festi in London as well as an Australian CUFF tour at the end of the year, pretty busy, and to finish we are going crazy in the studio so be ready for all the music coming out.
