INTERVIEW:
BBS AWARDS 2019 
Hello and welcome to BBS AWARDS 2019Today I have been joined by amazing artist Dread McHi! Nice to have you here in BBS Awards.INTERVIEW: 
What are some words you would use to describe this year (2019)?
Hard work, inspiring, crazy 

Can you tell us what you like best about your favorite track produced in 2019?
There is so many tunes that I have loved of 2019 but its the feeling I get from a tune. 

Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2020?
I have so much different projects I’m working on. Did a track with Left/Right called one two that has been the no1 bestseller for the breaks chart on beatport for the year. And have the remixes dropping early 2020. I’m working with lots of people outside of the UK and working with big artists as well as new emerging acts. 
Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits?
I’m a family man so days that I do have time for music starts with me on the school run then I make a cooked veggie breakfast. I go studio or visit music people for a couple of hours inbetween various phone calls. School pick up, cook dinner, wrestle and chill with the family and when misses go to bed I go studio late at night and work relentless on whatever material I have some tunes are instrumentals that I have that day sent to me or sometimes I work on material I have been sitting on for over a year. Anyone  have a session with we may chat for a few minutes but I crack on instantly recording whatever comes naturally 

Any artists / DJs / producers in particular that really influenced you?
Artists that influence me there is so many. But as I read that it has been. Taiki Nulight, Goldlink, Rider Shafique and FKA twigs 
What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?
I feel the UK is constantly thriving and it has an endless amount of talent who are not afraid to push the boundaries.  
Often, certain cities are related to certain sounds and sub-genres. Do you think that living in your city is reflected in your music?
Other people would have to answer that for me. I feel I’m so varied in my sound and I drawn influences from so many things.

INTERVIEW:

BBS AWARDS 2019 

Hello and welcome to BBS AWARDS 2019

Today I have been joined by super DJ and producer Rory Hoy.

Hi! Nice to have you here in BBS Awards.

What are some words you would use to describe this year (2019)?

I’ve had a great year, with new releases, collaborations, remixes, lots of DJ gigs at festivals, and a new publication released in the form of a ‘Bookazine’ called ‘The Story of Big Beat’ – It’s a new version of my successful book last year ‘The Little Big Beat Book’, but this time, in magazine form with lots more exclusive colour photos. I have to say, also this time last year in December, I was invited to meet Sir Paul McCartney backstage before his gig in Glasgow! I was also invited to the soundcheck and to his show – he was amazing and such a lovely guy!

Can you tell us what you like best about your favorite track produced in 2019?

I don’t really have a specific favourite track that I produced this year, as I don’t really have favourite tracks of mine, but I really enjoyed the collaborations I’ve done this year with many great singers and other producers. To be honest, I’m fortunate to work with a lot of very talented people, so I can’t really pinpoint any specific track, as I really enjoyed making all of them!

Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2020?

I have quite a few new projects in the pipeline. This includes a new single with the wonderful Ashley Slater (from Freakpower with Fatboy Slim), a House single with Jet Boot Jack, a collaboration with Streamer, a House EP, a remix for Ursula 1000, a remix album for Sir Vere, a new EP with Under Influence and a new album, which is a return to the style of my first album (2008’s Cosmic Child) – Exciting times!

Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits?

I have two recording studios that I work in. Downstairs is where I have all my computers and DJ gear, and upstairs is more traditional with guitars, keyboards, recording devices, microphones etc. My tracks are always a combination of both, and I don’t really have a typical day – I just work each day in the studio, and if I’m feeling productive, I can work very long hours!

How will you choose the software and add-ons you use?

For me, It’s not really about what software and add ons you use, but how you use them. You can create the most amazing track in the world just by using the most primitive of domestic gear. I enjoy using Ableton and Audacity.

Are you an avid believer of learning an instrument?

My dad is a very gifted and successful musician, but beyond a little bit of guitar and keyboards and bass, my strengths are more on the IT and production side and DJ-ing/Scratching. 

What is the only piece of DJ / production equipment that you can not live with?

Ableton, obviously!

So what are your thoughts on technology aiding the technique of DJing?

I don’t mind technology, as long as people don’t use the auto sync feature for beat matching, as I feel it takes away any real skill in DJ-ing, and it opens the doors for anyone to say 

“Hey, I’m a DJ now!”. it actually does take a lot of practising, dedication and skill to be a successful DJ – not just someone who puts on one record after the other, but is also an entertainer, personality and selects the right tunes for the right audience. I don’t pre-plan my set beyond the first few tracks, and I like a smooth transition from A to B. I enjoy mashing disparate tracks together and surprising people and I might drop one track in the middle of another to make people smile!

Any artists / DJs / producers in particular that really influenced you?

Easily the old Big Beat gang such as Fatboy Slim, Freddy Fresh, The Wiseguys, The Chemical Brothers etc. In fact, they influenced me so much, I wrote a book about them last year, as mentioned previously called ‘The Little Big Beat Book’ – my pride and joy! I interviewed 120 artists of the time including Fatboy and The Prodigy, and the book got to No.1 in the Amazon Music Book Charts overtaking Neil Tennant from The Pet Shop Boys!

What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?

I’m not a great person for following current chart trends, but it needs more Funk and Big Beat. There are amazing records, that come out every day . . even the odd Chart/Pop tune once in a blue moon!

Often, certain cities are related to certain sounds and sub-genres. Do you think that living in your city is reflected in your music?

Probably not, as I live in a smaller rural town – we do have excellent DJ’s and bands here, and also in neighbouring cities like Leeds (Kaiser Chiefs, Corinne Bailey Rae etc). I feel what I do is a mixture of Liverpool of the 1960’s, Bronx in the 70’s mashed with Paris and Brighton of the 1990’s, and whatever else I’m into that day!

Best

History

BBS AWARDS

A Breakbeat Survey Award (stylized as BBS Awards) is a prize founded by Stefano Ricci (Aka Stex) Italian producer, of the record label YOUNG NRG PRODUCTIONS.To recognize achievements in the Breakbeat music industry.

The first BBS Awards ceremony was held on January 2016

The 4th Annual Award, awarding and honoring the best of Breaks, Broken Beat, 808, 2 Step, DNB, Oldschool, Newschool and Bass Music to date. Breakbeat is a broad style of electronic or dance-oriented music which utilizes breaks, often sampled from earlier recordings in funk, jazz, and R&B, for the main rhythm. Breakbeats have been used in styles such as hip hop, jungle, drum and bass, hardcore, UK garage (including 2-step, breakstep and dubstep), and even pop and rock.

History

The 1st BBAwards ceremony (also called as Breakbeat Survey 2016 – AWARDS) was an upcoming awarding event to honor the best in music and breakbeat of 2016 and was scheduled to take place on January 18, 2017 at NRG TV – Music Channel beginning at 10:00 pm GMT – 5 pm EST – 2 pm PST

https://www.facebook.com/NRGTV-854957874536413/

and at http://bbsaward.blogspot.com/

The ceremony was produced by Stex in association with Young NRG Productions and was streamed in the NRG TV Music Channel.

In 2017 Stefano Ricci is contacted by a large music distribution company, Jamvana, based in Florida to collaborate with BBS Awards and officially open the site and expand the event to all labels, artists of the Breaks sector.

Jamvana was formed by producers, DJs, and label owners like yourself. The name ‘Jamvana’ comes from a mashup of founder Robert E. Leigh’s two favorite bands: Pearl Jam & Nirvana. The company first started as an online record store for indies from 2007-2010, then became a mobile app for convenient streaming on the go shortly after. In 2013, Jamvana changed its focus to service indie content creators, specializing in the ‘back-end’ of music distribution. Currently, Jamvana is the complete package containing 60+ direct agreements, a mobile app, and free tools to help our clients stay organized and on top. We pride ourselves on having the best quality controlled catalog and the most outstanding customer service in the music industry.

Inside BBS Awards – One day with Dj Losman – Interview

In Conversation with Dj LOSMAN
Orlando – Florida

Founder at EDM Syndicate

INTERVIEW:

BBS AWARDS 2019

Hello and welcome to BBS AWARDS 2019.
Today I have been joined by amazing DJ and producer DJ Losman.

Hi! Nice to have you here in BBS Awards.

 

What are some words you would use to describe this year (2019)?

LOSMAN : Groundbreaking !
It was is definitely turning out to be a fantastic year. Getting invited to release on some extraordinary labels and spin alongside some true Legends.

Losman – Higher Quad Storm
LOSMAN : it was fun reworking this classic club anthem. I never expected to release it but my good friends at YoungNRG had other plans for it!

Can you tell us what you like best about your track?
LOSMAN : what I like most is every single time I’ve played it in a club, it gets the crowd going and it goes over well. I always envisioned the track in my head and finally got it the way I wanted. I love spinning it and I’m proud of what I did to it.

Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2019?
LOSMAN : lately I’ve been working on new original content for the electronic band ‘Prophecy’ . I’m very proud & humbled to have been asked to be part of the team. I’m always pushing EDM Syndicate and Houz of Breaks. And I recently just sent another track to DEDR (DogEatDogRecords) and I am currently collaborating on a track with Si-Dog .

Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits?
LOSMAN : whatever I have in my mind, I really try to write a song out the best way I envisioned.
On the DJ side of things .. I really enjoy mixing it up on 4 decks with the likes of G-Force and Phunky Phin.

Are you an avid believer of learning an instrument?
What is the only piece of DJ / production equipment that you can not live with?
LOSMAN : production, I am addicted to Ableton.
DJing.. I still love the feel
of mixing on wax. CDJs, Controller, Turntables, I enjoy them all.

So what are your thoughts on technology aiding the technique of DJing?
LOSMAN : I’m fine with it.
When I started DJing I’m the mid-90’s everyone wasn’t a DJ.
Now it’s almost hard to find someone that isn’t one.

Any artists / DJs / producers, in particular, that really influenced you?
LOSMAN : I’ve always been a huge fan of Dave Noller (Dynamix ll), Kimball Collins, Icey, DJ Soul, and the past decade or so I’ve really been influenced by Promotors believe it or not. People like Mauricio (Prophecy & Prismatic Era), Ira Mazor (Mazor Promotions), Glyn Morgan (FSOB), Shaun Kerr, Tool time have all really been influential to me more then they’d ever realized.

What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?
LOSMAN : it’s making a great comeback in Central Florida because of names like the ones I mentioned above !!

Often, certain cities are related to certain sounds and subgenres. Do you think that living in your city is reflected in your music?
LOSMAN: Absolutely!
Thanks for the interview Stex.
Keep doing what you do and I’ll be looking forward to seeing if any of my 2019 accomplishments reached any nominations for the BBS awards.

BBS AWARDS 2018 
Hello and welcome to BBS AWARDS 2018. 
Today I have been joined by super DJ and producer EDM Syndicate.
Hi! Nice to have you here in BBS Awards.
 
 

What are some words you would use to describe this year (2018)?

“Ground Breaking! We recruited some Amazingly talented individuals . Between all of the Producers In the Syndicate , we released close to 25-30 tracks. Maybe more. Many goals were met and even more Dreams had come true.”

Off The Roof EDM Syndicate Remix – Kaleidoscope Music
Can you tell us what you like best about your track?

“Off the Roof was a last minute submission. The Original Mix was made by Losman & Underground Utopia.
Honestly , Losman was so excited to get 3 tracks on Kaleidoscope 150 Break-Out EP that he set it up to be remixed and submitted . Thankfully Dan/Huda Hudia accepted it. Now, EDM Syndicate has a track on Kaleidoscope Music !! It was a dream come true for us all”

Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2019?

“Sure. We’ve already started 2019 with a Bang. We Launched our Record Label called Syndicate Nation. It just might be in your Best Label category this time next year. DJ Tokz hosts the NSB.co.uk EDM Syndicate Radio Show ‘2 Steps Ahead’ and it’s flourishing. Losman , Brokon, BeatsMe,
N-Fluence, have already released multiple tracks in 2019 and many in the top 20!
Expect big things in 2019 from DJs/Producers Rosk , G-Force and Orkid as well .”

Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits? 

“Just Turning on Ableton and/or FL Studio and letting our creativity juices flow. Calls will be made to a few others of course , and we just collaborate with others. Whether it be opinions or ideas. But it’s every single day”

How will you choose the software and add-ons you use?

“That depends on 2 things .
Who is all collaborating of an EDM Syndicate production and also depending on the actual track itself”

Are you an avid believer of learning an instrument?

“We all are. We have Piano players and Drums and Guitarist”

What is the only piece of DJ / production equipment that you can not live with?

“Some of us say Ableton. Others say their Pioneer DDJ SZ’s /SX’s”

So what are your thoughts on technology aiding the technique of DJing?

“It’s great. All the DJs can spin vinyl ,so the use of serato or traktor just makes Gigs more compact”

Any artists / DJs / producers in particular that really influenced you?

“We all have Influences.
Everyone has their own electronic music icons they appreciate and look up too.
Many , we’ve already worked with multiple times and it’s growing!”

What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?

“We are International. From Florida to Canada and everywhere in-between.
We like to think that WE are doing our part to make it more positive . We thrive on helping others and pulling up and comers up as well.”

Often, certain cities are related to certain sounds and subgenres. Do you think that living in your city is reflected in your music?

“100%. Even tho EDM Syndicate is a multicultural, multi-genre based Family.. we all have our own sound whether it’s DJing or Producing music .
Thank you so much for interviewing us and we look forward to the BBS Awards and the 2018 Finalists. Good luck to all who made it this far!!”

INTERVIEW:
BBS AWARDS 2018 
Hello and welcome to BBS AWARDS 2018. 
Today I have been joined by super DJ and producer Jim Funk- Florida.
Hi! Nice to have you here in BBS Awards.
 
 
 
What are some words you would use to describe this year (2018)?
 
Honestly, First thing that comes to mind is blessed. God truly gave me everything I could ask for in 2018.
SWAG -ORIGINAL MIX – LW Recordings
Can you tell us what you like best about your track?
 
I would definitely have to say, the best thing about making swag was working with such amazing artist, BLAKJAK and UNITED STATES BEAT SQUAD (USBS)
Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2019?
 
Well, I already have five tracks ready to release and now working with six other artists on multiple projects. The start of the year I plan on releasing more of the high energy side of music and later in the year releasing more of my progressive side of music again.
Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits?
 
A normal day in the studio usually begins with an idea or dream I had the day or night before. I tend to try and find presets I have made that are close to the sound in the idea. Next, I normally go straight into drums because without a heartbeat it is hard to make a life of anything and I hate the sound of a metronome. My next step normally moves into vocals and melodies. From there it’s all about time and letting the song guide you. Last but not least is the many days of mixdown and mastering.
How will you choose the software and add-ons you use?
 
Honestly, I read a lot of reviews and study daily about upcoming vst’s and daw updates. I have been stuck on Pro tools since the early 2000’s and in the last 9 years I have been enjoying the easy editing in Ableton live but, any time I record live vocal or do mastering I prefer using the daw pro tools.
Are you an avid believer of learning an instrument?
 
I believe an artist can paint a picture however they want. There are no rules to art but, truthfully instruments are some of the main tools for making a sound. I started playing drums at the age of 13 which led right into djing around the age of 15. Around the age of 17, I started digging deep into synthesizers and piano. It really wasn’t till I went to California that I really started messing with the mpc and learning sampling. So I guess, I would say its very important to try things and learn as much as you can because everything you do only helps to teach you more about the love of music.
What is the only piece of DJ / production equipment that you can not live with?
 
Consciousness.
So what are your thoughts on technology aiding the technique of DJing?
 
I see in a lot of older friends, it’s making it much harder for them because they didn’t grow up in a world of computers. Other than that there isn’t much we can do but learn and adapt because in time we will most likely just have to use thought and let the imagination go and a computer will build it. The present is a present for a reason embrace the now. That’s all we have.
Any artists / DJs / producers, in particular, that really influenced you?
 
All artist, dancers, friends, family, GOD. Truthfully every moment of my life has influenced the music that comes from me.
What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?
 
It seems like we are onto another shift in music.
Often, certain cities are related to certain sounds and subgenres. Do you think that living in your city is reflected in your music?
 
Honestly yes, I am from Panama City Beach and grew up in the dance scene I was definitely taught that house beats didn’t work in this town and are unfortunately still that way. This town likes more broken and hip hop style music and continues to guide me on how I play and make music.

INTERVIEW:
BBS AWARDS 2018 
Hello and welcome to BBS AWARDS 2018. 
Today I have been joined by super DJ and producer Dustin Dynasty Nelson – Florida.
Hi! Nice to have you here in BBS Awards.
 
 
What are some words you would use to describe this year (2018)?
Growth, Dedication, Victory, Perseverance
Booty Drop Original Mix – Kaleidoscope Music
Can you tell us what you like best about your track?
I really enjoy the percussion and slamming beat! Also, it’s my first song with just me and Sweet Charlie.
Can you tell us about the new project you will be working on in 2019?
This year I plan on launching my own record label and continue to reach out to quality artists. I will also continue to build my orchestral cue catalog even further.
Imagine walking inside the studio; please, can you speak to me through a typical day? What are your habits?
I never really stop thinking about music, no matter what I am doing or where I am at! I
always try to have a game plan together before I go into the studio! I use my away time to gather a general idea of the mood or sound I am aiming for before I start working on it in the studio. Sometimes I spend days going through all of my music content; labeling,
archiving, and shaping sounds that I know I will eventually use for a song later down the road!
When I make a song I usually start with the beat and build it up until it sounds full,
punchy and likes it can carry the song without sounding too repetitive. Once I have a well-rounded beat put together I go to my piano and start to freestyle until I play something that sounds catchy! After I record in my midi, I usually always manually edit my melodies even further until it sounds like I can build a whole song based on what I played and edited. Lately, I have made songs in 3 days to 2 weeks!
How will you choose the software and add-ons you use?
I use Logic X and lots of the “in box” tools and vst’s provided.
I also use T-Racks and
Native Instruments Suite, Keilwerth Audio Suite,Brainworx Suite,Waves,Nex
us 2,Serum,Sylenth,Breaktweaker and a bunch of others but these have been my main vst’s.
Are you an avid believer of learning an instrument?
I used to think knowing how to play an instrument didn’t matter, but after learning how to play the piano I have become more confident in my productions. Knowing how to
play an instrument is the most rewarding feeling and opens up so many windows for you as an artist! Since I purchased my Moog Subsequent 37 I have saved so much time designing quality sounds, that it’s become my most valuable piece of equipment!
What is the only piece of DJ / production equipment that you can not live with?
I really don’t like to see Dj’s not using their headphones these days! I’m not going to get too deep into it, but it’s just not the approach I would take to Djing.
Even with being mainly just a producer, I still take the time to mix my set’s live in front of everyone and use my ears to do it! So, if I am watching someone who is just a Dj, I expect to see them
actually mixing!
Any artists / DJs / producers, in particular, that really influenced you?
I have been influenced by so many artists over the years, but it wasn’t until I discovered
Dj Trashy, that I knew I was going to become a music producer!
People here in the United States have become more familiar with dance music over the past 10 years! I remember about 15 years ago, if you told someone you liked dance music, they automatically assumed you were a homosexual or they just called
it techno!
Nowadays most people love dance music but I would love to see people get back to being more original with what they like and not just following popular/viral artist’s! I feel that too many people are caught up in the “Smoke and Mirrors” of it all and not real music.
What is the music scene like at this moment in your country?
I just want to start with saying I am extremely fortunate to grow up in Central Florida!
I have been exposed to so many new sounds and music trends growing up here! As a kid, my older brothers exposed me to Miami Bass and when I would go to the local skating rink “Skate Dimensions” I would hear this catchy Freestyle Electro sound that was better than what was on the radio at the time! Being exposed to Florida Breaks, Miami Bass, Electro, Hip-hop and Electronica in my area has built me up to the producer I am today!
