Digital Society

Digital Society has become firmly established as one of the UK’s leading specialist Trance brands, recently being crowned Mixmag's 'Trance Club of the Year'. The past 12 months have seen an immensely successful events programme across multiple venues in the city of Leeds which has seen global superstars feature such as Above & Beyond, Sander van Doorn, Gareth Emery, Cosmic Gate, Andy Moor and John O'Callaghan to name just a few, and has also seen event collaborations with dance industry giants Judgement Sundays, Godskitchen, The Gallery and Anjunabeats. With recent news including DS are to host the main arena this years UK Indoor Dance Festival, an Asian residency with India's freshest Trance brand Evoke, confirmed specialist autumn shows at the O2 Academy Leeds, and the exciting partnership announcement with Enhanced Music and Assured Artists, 2010 is set to see Digital Society hit new heights. After 2 highly acclaimed DS International compilations mixed by Matt Hardwick and John Askew, DS-R looks to the future with super producer talents Ashley Wallbridge and Activa heading up the much anticipated DS International volume 3 release.

Ashley Wallbridge

Ashley Wallbridge is undoubtedly one of the most prolific prospects on the progressive production scene in 2010, named by industry leaders such as Andy Moor and Gareth Emery as one of the hottest break-through DJ talents in the game. At just 22 years old, his discography reads like a 'who's who' list of EDM with releases of originals and remixes featuring names like Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Tritonal & TyDi. Ava Recordings release 'Faces' the 2009 collaboration with Andy Moor, fast became one of the biggest titles of the year and dominated download charts worldwide, closely followed up by club hit original 'Chimera'. With a hectic tour diary covering London to Los Angeles & Argentina to Australia, Ashley has become an extremely in-demand DJ, with his name set to hit the bright lights on billboards right across the globe.

Activa

Activa (Production maestro Rob Stevenson) is a man on fire. Labeled by Paul van Dyk as his producer of the year, Activa productions have appeared on Spinnin, Discover, High Contrast and of course the mighty Vandit Records - which has seen Activa tracks & remixes feature in sets from the biggest names in the industry. 2009 saw the tech-trance titan complete his first and highly acclaimed artist album 'This World', and has worked with the likes of Giuseppe Ottaviani, John Askew & Jon O'Bir in recent times. Coupled with new projects on Anjunabeats (under the Solar Movement alias), and with Dave Parkinson under his Revalution 9 guise on Activa's very own brand new, independantly run label, Borderline Music - a label which is set to take the Trance scene by storm. Alongside tour dates in Europe, Asia, and the US throughout the calender year, Rob's renowned UK residency with Digital Society is held in the highest regard.

The Mint Club

The Mint Club is regarded as one the Leeds most exclusive venues having under gone a half a million pound refurbishment in 2008, which saw the installation of a brand new Funktion-One soundsystem and the Disco Panel lighting system which features at Berlin's legendary Watergate club. Since then, the venue has played host to residencies with Cocoon, System and Filth, and has seen artists such as Sasha, Sven Vath and Josh Wink grace the turntables in epic fashion. With a reputation of being the North of England's most intimate and coolest venue, the Mint Club Leeds was the stand out location for such a special one-off Digital Society album launch event, which not only see's showcase performances from album artists Ashley Wallbridge & Activa, but also an extended set from Enhanced Music boss Will Holland, and extremely rare and much called for appearences from DS residents Rav Takhar & Paul Pearson.

Digital Society Catches up with Activa ahead of his set at the DS International Volume 3 Album Launch Party on Friday 13th August @ The Mint Club, Leeds





Hey Rob, hows it going? – Its been a busy 12 months on the DJ Front from what we hear – any standout performances? whats coming up?


Definitely, its been really busy. The main standout gig for me was the Vandit Night in Berlin last December. Just me and Paul van Dyk on the lineup which was a bit nerve racking with Paul playing before and after my set. It was an amazing night though and one ill remember for a long long time. Tomorrowlands in Belgium was amazing too. Great weather and a great crowd.
I have some really good gigs coming up too which I am very excited about. 1015 in San Francisco is definitely one that I cant wait for. I am also travelling to Italy for a night called Art of Trance which should be great.


Sounds like a busy year ahead! Last years 'This World', your debut artist album is still high in demand - did the success of the album surprise you?


I was hoping that people would see and hear the effort that I put into the album. I wasn’t expecting anything in terms of a reaction in particular, having said that, I knew that it was (at the time) the best work I had done and was just hoping that it would be well received.
It was more of a relief than a surprise when people’s feedback came in as I was always thinking about what people would think about it and whether they would understand why the album was put together the way it was.


2010 has seen you launch ‘Borderline Music’ and you have had some great releases lined up. can we look forward to any more upcoming Activa production material in the near future on the label?


I will be doing various work on the label from original tracks under Substate and Activa as well as remixes and special reworks. I am wanting the label to stand out from other digital labels in not only the style of music it will be releasing but the quality as well. I have some amazing producers on boards like Sonic Element and Impulsive Drive, both relatively new, but both with music that, for me, is unique while keeping the quality and style of the label how I want it.
I am also working with the likes of Marcos and JK Walker, two producers that I rate very highly and are up for working with Borderline.


This summer you have mixed 'DS International Volume 3'. your association with digital society is well known with your long standing residency, how does it feel to mix the forthcoming ds album release?


Its fantastic. Ever since the first DS International was released I wanted to mix a CD and now that I have had my chance and the mix is done, I think it will stand up against the other CD’s. There are some great new tracks on there as well as an old favourite and some recent quality releases. It should have a good mix of known and unknown music and will hopefully flow nicely!


Finally (thinking back to Live As in 2008 any words of wisedom for the DS faithful ahead of the album launch party? Smile


It should be a really cool night with a high quality of music. DS nights always flow in terms of the music and the album launch will be no exception. It will be a great chance for DS fans to see me play an unrestricted peak time set which a lot of the time, they don’t get to see because I tend to play late. Im really looking forward to it. It’ll be better than Live As I reckon!


Cheers Rob, looking forward to another cracking night


Cheers, me too!


Activa

Activa (Production maestro Rob Stevenson) is a man on fire. Labeled by Paul van Dyk as his producer of the year, Activa productions have appeared on Spinnin, Discover, High Contrast and of course the mighty Vandit Records - which has seen Activa tracks & remixes feature in sets from the biggest names in the industry. 2009 saw the tech-trance titan complete his first and highly acclaimed artist album 'This World', and has worked with the likes of Giuseppe Ottaviani, John Askew & Jon O'Bir in recent times. Coupled with new projects on Anjunabeats (under the Solar Movement alias), and with Dave Parkinson under his Revalution 9 guise on Activa's very own brand new, independantly run label, Borderline Music - a label which is set to take the Trance scene by storm.

Digital Society Interview Ashley Wallbridge ahead of The DS International Volume 3 Launch Party - Friday 13th August @ The Mint Club, Leeds





Hey Ash, hope your well? - 2010 has been a stunning year for you on the DJ front, any particular gig highlights that stand out in your mind?


Thanks, Its been a pretty hectic year for gigs, A lot of different experience. Two which stand out from the rest are ASOT 450 ( Bratislava ) & Sunrise festival ( Poland )
Both of these were amazing in different ways. The people, crowd & atmosphere was unforgettable...


Sounds like it's been hectic! What about the production front, again a steller 12 months - Can we expect any new tracks/remixes on the horizon?


On the production front iv never been so busy, I have my artist album in the works at the moment which im putting the finishing touches on, Four new singles and two new big collaborations. Looks like a lot of coffee and no sleep is in order Wink


You have of course just mixed 'DS International Vol 3' - Have you mixed a compliation album before? Has does the mix compare to your live DJ sets?


Mixing a CD is very much similar to playing at a DJ set, You have to choose the tracks wisely and keep the energy going. This was actually my first mix compilation, So its a special one for me.. The mix is the kind of sound i play out live, Although depending on the venue, capacity etc etc, Things can always change Wink


You made your 1st appearance for Digital Society in February at the massive O2 Academy, whats your thoughts on the brand and its impact in the UK?


Digital Society is huge! The brand, organisation and what its doing for the UK scene is fantastic. It may be the breath of fresh air what we have been looking for...


And finally, looking forward to the launch party, what can the people of Leeds expect from you at the much hyped Mint Club?


A lot of Energy, Drive and new tracks haha


Thanks ash, look forward to seeing on friday the 13th!
