Premiere: Marc Romboy & Stephan Bodzin – Atlas (Tuff City Kids Remix)

Premiering on DHA are Tuff City Kids, the production duo consisting of Phillip Lauer and Gerd Janson, as they remix Marc Romboy and Stephan Bodzin’s club classic ‘Atlas’. Ordinarily, you would put J before L to preserve alphabetical order, but in this case the amount of work done by Lauer necessitates some sort of nod – rhetorically or otherwise. Early in their career, Philip and Gerd had been focusing largely on remix commissions rather than original production, but have since diversified their output. They’ve gone on releasing on renowned labels such as Creme Organization, CONSTRUCT, Freebase Records, and Mojuba. Today, the Tuff ... Read more

Musical Tastes Reflect The Way You Think, Study Says

In a recent University of Cambridge study published in the journal PLOS ONE, a team of psychologists have shown that ones thinking style – whether you are an ‘empathizer’ (those who likes to focus on and respond to the emotions of others), or a ‘systemizer’ (those who like to analyse rules and patterns) —is an accurate predictor of ones musical tastes. Generally, empathetic people seem to prefer the mellower side of the spectrum, which includes R&B and soft rock and (what the report described as) “unpretentious”(!) music like folk, and contemporary music (which includes dance music). Empathetic people also gravitate toward reflective, sad or depressing songs, as well as those ... Read more
