Featured Artist - VovKING in the Xata

Happy Friday everyone! Today we have yet another special show for your ear-holes, making this the fourth consecutive week of Sneaker & The Dryer Podcasts supplying you with nothing but monstrous choons. Kicking things off this week, VovKING is bringing his business to The Shoe Skool Studios with his insane one hour “Ideology Porno” mix.

This is a massive onslaught of big beats and fun, funky and fresh tracks that VovKING has compiled. With plenty of dancefloor stormers and a bunch of VovKING’s own crowd tested tunas, this mix is an excellent way to open up the show. Whether it’s “Skype”, “Moombahton in The Xata”, or “Stimulator” with its fat driving bass, you can’t help but get out of your seat and move! Also VovKING unveils his remix of Kwerks "Don't Stop" being released on Kick It Recordings January 19th.

You might look at this weeks post and think, "HEY... is it my birthday", because we also have an exclusive interview with VovKING himself! Remembering his favorite gigs, first albums, and lessons learned from the music industry, this will give you a greater insight into the one like VovKING and his music.

Just in case that wasn't enough for you we also have two killer videos from Tapolsky & VovKING starting off with the official video for "Moombahton in The Xata" followed by the promo video for VovKING and Tapolsky's remix of "Futurasia" by Aggressiveness.

The S&D Boys close out the show with two hours of ridiculousness, making all the tunes within sound new again, as the smooth and well crafted mixing takes the final two hours of tasty tracks to another level! You can download the entire show or just the VovKING mix below and we’ll see you next week for another episode of The Shoe Skool Sessions w/ Sneaker & The Dryer, Kick It!!!

The Kick It 12 - VovKING Edition

1. – At what age did you first find yourself gravitating towards electronic music and who were some of the artists outside of Electronic music that influenced that?

 I started listening to electonic music when i was 8, it was The Prodigy :) Then my musical tastes  changed & I payed more attention to Hip-Hop & Rock/Metal music. When i was 16 my friend gave me my first Splitloop's album 'Here on Business'... After that I was fascinated by electronic music, I learned about Breakbeat music & became a Dj..

2. – What was your very first Album? How about CD?

I have few digital releases at the moment. I think that I'm too young for an album. You need to understansd music much better than me to start make an album.

3. – How did you first get involved with the Electronic music culture and what was the first event that you attended?

I did not go to any events before i became a dj. I was born in a small town there wasn't any raves, festivals etc.

4. – Where was your favorite gig that you have had to date?

Think, that it might be in the end of January. It'll be the massive festival Ideology, formed by my friend - Dj Tapolsky. There will be fantastic line-up! We'll play with Calvertron, Dubsidia, The Prototypes, Chasing Shadows....

5. - Who have you been most proud to play alongside?

 I'm proud that I work with Splitloop at Toastclub at the moment :)

6. - Where would you most like to play that you have not yet?

Don't know... There are many festivals in Ukraine where I'll play in 2012. I really wanna visit the USA!

7. - What is your favorite tune you have released?

I think that my listeners must evaluate my work. As for me - I'm very happy with the 'Stimulator' & with my remix for Kwerk. I play only these 2 tunes from all stuff that  I made. Also I have few succesfull tunes & remixes with Tapolsky.

8. - Who is your favorite EDM artist? How about outside of EDM?

Splitloop! They make the most quality music to me. Also I Like General MIDI, Skrillex, Oliver Huntemann, Acess Denied, Alex Metric, old tunes from Rogue Element, Camo & Krooked, CTRL Z, and Gessafelstein.There are a lot artists outside of electronic music that I like. There are many Ukrainian & old Russian artists, Rock & Pop bands such as Ill Nino, Nickelback, Hatebreed, Flaw, Killowats & Vanek, Maroon 5, Eminem, David Guetta, Rhiana & much more :)

9. - Who are some artists you would like to collaborate with in the future?

General MIDI! His sound is fantastic. Also i would like to do something with Skrillex.

10. - What is your preferred software for producing? Hardware?

I use Ableton Live for production. I like Massive, Sylenth 1. For Hardware I use the NI Maschine & few controllers. Native Instruments is incredible - I love their products very much!

11. - What life lessons has the music industry taught you?

You must develop! You must develop all life long!!!

12. – What does the future hold for VovKING?

Only God knows it. I wanna start to play live. I produce only breaks as VovKING at the moment, also I want to try to make some other styles of music with different artist. We make Dubstep, Moombahton & other bass music with Tapolsky, I produce Techno with my friend Dub-Ro. I don't know what will be the result of that all...
