Monkee supports Rene LaVice & Mind Vortex (RAM Records)Posted: Tuesday, September 17th, 2013
With an abundance of extra sound, lighting, lazers and décor, we return to Brown Alley for an unforgettable night of world class D&B dedicated to new artists from the legendary Ram Records. Catch musical prodigies RENE LaVICE & MIND VORTEX on their debut Australian tour, these guys have been behind some of the biggest dancefloor tunes of 2013 with plenty more on the release schedule for later this year.
Now fresh off the back of MIND VORTEX’s tear out beatport #1 ‘Gravity’ EP…prepare your dancing shoes as we gear up for a night of bass vibes and good company!
RENE LAVICE (Ram Records: CAN)
MIND VORTEX (Ram Records: UK)
Supported by some of the finest local talent..
Soulflex & JFK
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Rene LaVice made his drum & bass debut in 2009 on Canadian label Stride Recordings. Infused with four tracks of early LaVice magic, ‘The Future’ EP promised great things, while subsequent singles, collaborations and remixes delivered on those promises and gained attention from record labels across North America and Europe.
His work with veteran producer and fellow Canadian Gremlinz led to remix work on Bad Concept Records and New World Ordio and a release on DSCi4′s ‘Amen Warfare’ LP. This was swiftly followed by more local attention as another of Canada’s biggest exports, John Rolodex, took notice of Rene’s talent and recruited the budding newcomer as a key member and intricate part of his Machinist Music imprint.
As the buzz and hype about this exciting producer began to grow, tastemaker DJs began to regularly support Rene LaVice’s tracks in their sets. From DJ Marky and Sub Focus to Total Science, A Sides, Sigma and TC, the 175bpm elite began to push LaVice’s music and none so hard as Ram Records boss Andy C.
Rene LaVice’s Ram Records debut, ‘Headlock,’ was released on the ‘Dimensions 5’ EP, part of a series that showcases not only Ram’s commitment to diversity, but also to the freshest talent around. Lauded by the likes of Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1, ‘Headlock’ is a defining moment in LaVice’s musical career. A track that insists you take notice, simultaneously packed with subtle references to the golden era of drum & bass while sprinkled liberally with a fresh and exciting outlook on the music we all know and love.
Following the huge success of ‘Headlock,’ Ram Records offered Rene LaVice an exclusive recording contract which will see the young producer catapulted to the highest echelons of the D&B world. While the scene waits with baited breath for his follow up, you can be assured that this impressive and forward-thinking artist will not disappoint.
Since signing to Ram Records, Mind Vortex have gone from strength to strength, steadily carving their way through the ranks of DnB producers. Their debut single Now it’s Time and Hotbox went straight in at number 1 in the BBC 1xtra’s DnB Chart, with Hotbox remaining number 1 on the Beatport drum and bass chart for over 3 weeks. After being play listed on BBC Xxtra, the single received widespread radio support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Trevor Nelson, Fearne Cotton, Dj Hype, Mistajam, Crissy Criss, to name just a few. Since then they’ve remixed for the likes of Don Diablo on Sony, and Camo & Krooked on Hospital, and have been in high demand for their high energy DJ sets all over the UK and Europe, and have proudly formed part of the Ram XX tour. On the horizon, the next Mind Vortex installment is due very soon, and be sure to catch them at the Ram label nights at Fabric for sneak previews of upcoming releases.
