Mark Reeve - Forwarding from Next Generation Compilation on Elevate

Elevate is a label run by Techno mainstays Pig&Dan who regularly feature on labels including Drumcode, Cocoon, Bedrock and Terminal M. Along with releases from Pig&Dan themselves, Elevate has built up an impressive roster of artists, and label favourites include people like Mark Reeve, Aitor Ronda, Rob Hes and Carlo Ruetz.  This new release titled “Next Generation” is very much a family gathering where Elevate regulars like the above mentioned artist get to meet and mingle with the labels newest members, which includes people like Etai Tarazi, Fideles and Sezer Uysal. Handpicked by Pig&Dan themselves, Next Generation is a mammoth 21 track package that gives us a glimpse of what we can expect from Elevate in 2017, and although nothing is confirmed, it seems likely we can expect solo releases from some of the artists who with this compilation make their Elevate debut.

My new release is more on the dark tech house side. I wouldn’t really know in which genre it could be put into. Although this release champions Elevate's next generation, it also reminds us that their veterans are not forgotten... artists like Mark Reeve are still a valued part of the labels family. Mark is an artist who has also featured on labels including Cocoon, Bedrock and Carl Cox’s label Intec, and will no doubt be making future appearances on Elevate.

To celebrate the release of Next Generation, the guys over at Elevate have very kindly given Ibiza Voice an exclusive stream of the Mark Reeve track taken from the release, which titled “Forwarding” is a slice of stunning Techno that perfectly sums up the style of this release…

How would you define your DJ and production styles?
There is not much to define. I just go into the studio and produce whatever I feel at the time. Depending if I’m upset or feeling in love all that goes into my music.

Playing out a new track & seeing people get crazy that’s what I love to see...Talk us through a bit about your new release, its inspiration.
My new release is more on the dark tech house side. I wouldn’t really know in which genre it could be put into. Still got some heavy hitting percussion inside that also makes the track good for dancefloor action.

How about producing? Can you tell us more about what you use in the studio?
Well at the moment I’ve just bought a Mopho from Dave Smith. Also investing in the UAD plugins to make everything sound better. Got Ableton Live still running which makes it very quick to produce.

What keeps you inspired and what else are you working on or looking forward to?
I just think it’s the people on the dancefloor that inspire. Playing out a new track and seeing people get crazy that’s what I love to see. I’m really looking forward to releasing on Adam Beyer’s Truesoul next year! My return to the Label after a couple of years.
