Spun Out on Bahar’s Magic Soup
Written by Tara on 26-03-17 18:56 (5054 views) (1 comment)
When Bahar Canca first came to London from her native Turkey to study film in the mid-’90s, she could never have imaged how music would change her life. Falling hard for the UK dance scene, she quickly progressed from playing at home to house parties and bars and soon had a residency at underground night Rude Not 2, which lasted an epic 10 years. At the same time, she was getting more and more addicted to the incredible vibe and energy of the psychedelic trance scene, initially leading to bookings at the alternative stage of festivals like Glade and Sonica. But this rising star couldn’t be kept away from the main stage for long and it was only a matter of time before she was playing the kind of psy trance that she loved to party to.

In true Bahar style she embarked on building a studio in her back garden, where her first tracks were started. Ten years on, her EP Spun Out has just bounced straight into the No. 2 psy trance releases slot on Beatport and she is now collaborating in the studio with some of her most favourite producers to create her forthcoming album, Bahar’s Magic Soup. With the album launch party looming in June and a series of gigs at some of London’s top events over the next few weeks including The Elixir of Life & Iono Records Sonica Gaia pre-party, Shattered Barriers and Dreamscapes, we finally managed to interview London’s psychedelic party princess…

It’s that time again and the results are in after HarderFaster asked you to look back and tell us who, what, when and where made the grade in 2016, whether that be for good or bad reasons

At your suggestion, we added a new poll category – Jaw Drop Thread – and the winner won’t come as any surprise.

Our free-text voting system means you can enter whatever you want and we always look forward to your wit and wisdom. In keeping with tradition, we were delighted to see Josie making a comeback for best festival.

As we’ve said in the past, the diverse votes continue to reveal your eclectic tastes so we’ll continue to award top honours to those who were clearly in the lead and honourable mentions to those who were near the top or where there are no clear winners.

Headliners PHD and NG Rezonance step up for Trance Sanctuary's 6th Birthday this Saturday
Written by Miles Gorfy on 15-03-17 10:14 (3930 views)
HarderFaster is hosting the 140+ Room at Trance Sanctuary's 6th Birthday on March 18th with headliners NG Rezonance and PHD.

Peter Berry (NG Rezonance) and Paul Docker (PHD) are old friends so we thought what better way for us to get to know them than to send them along to the pub with a list of questions for each other.

Fancy a bit of Custard at Trance Sanctuary's 6th Birthday?
Written by Miles Gorfy on 27-02-17 13:35 (4502 views)
Custard is a name I’ve known on the scene for many years, from his involvement with Planet Angel and his tracks on Discover Records. I first worked with him a couple of years ago at the Chilled in a Field festival where we both played the main stage and I got to see first-hand what an excellent DJ and lovely fellow he is.

It was a pleasure to catch up with Paul 'Custard' Mayes again, before we share the same stage in the HarderFaster 140+ Room at Trance Sanctuary’s 6th birthday on March 18th, and I dug through the skin of this creamy dessert to find out what makes him beat.

The Return of Roots: Interview with Groove System ahead of the Roots 11th Birthday Belebration
Written by Tara on 29-11-16 18:48 (4318 views)
The last time we interviewed Peter Welgemoed aka Groove System AKA Zeus for HarderFaster was ahead of the Roots and Chichime Birthday Celebrations at Mass almost bang on six years ago. Six years on, Roots is back in south London for the Roots 11th Birthday at The Flying Dutchman - which with headliners like Aphid Moon, Oberon, Journey, Imry, LukedB, Simon Piemon and Sutekh might just be the perfect afterparty for this Saturday night's HarderFaster Christmas Party. With so much to catch up on, it was high time we had a chat with this veteran of the London scene… [Full Story]

Down to Earthcore with JOOF
Written by Jessica Alici on 27-10-16 10:12 (6312 views) (2 comments)
John ‘00’ Fleming is a name known to any self-respecting raver in the trance scene. He’s an institution! With the rise of illegal downloads & streaming services – it’s understandable that many underground dance artists have bailed. Not JOOF though. He’s still as dedicated & passionate to the scene as he ever was. He’s seen & done it all! In fact what J00F doesn’t know about the scene - isn’t worth knowing! Which is why I jumped at the chance of being able to interview him - ahead of one of his upcoming sets where he’s a firm favourite - Earthcore! [Full Story]

Written by Mark Landragin on 25-10-16 22:52 (4870 views)
For over a decade Giuseppe Ottaviani has forged a reputation for being one of the leading Trance artists within the scene today. His tracks such as ‘Through Your Eyes’ ‘Lean On Me’ and ‘Ride The Wave’ have all been crowd favourites and he has remixed tracks for the likes of Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk and Gareth Emery.

This autumn the Italian released his third studio album ALMA and ahead of his appearance at Trance Sanctuary on the 19th November, we found out more about what goes into making an album.

From Little Acorns to Mighty Oaks - How Chilled in a Field has grown
Written by Latex Zebra on 20-07-16 19:21 (7219 views) (2 comments)
The saying mighty oaks from little acorns grow applies to many things, from children to events, which is handy because this next interview is about both!

Chilled in a Field began as a small festival some 6 years ago and has now become an amazing, although still personal festival which is getting rave reviews from attendees and the media.

I managed to grab one of the promotion team to throw a few questions at them in the lead-up to this year's event.

The HarderFaster Guide to Noisily Festival of Music and Arts 2016
Written by Tara on 22-06-16 18:06 (6418 views)
It’s somewhat paradoxical that although there are now more music festivals than ever before, a really special festival is still hard to find. Last year’s Noisily Festival of Music & Arts therefore surpassed all expectations, for the line-up was so good that I could easily have spent the weekend at any one of the four stages, while its pristine location deep in the woodland meant that even the odd downpour didn't kill the party. And with the atmosphere around the perfectly condensed site consistently peaking, we sure did party!

With Noisily 2016 just around the corner on 7th-10th of July at Coney Woods near Leicester and the excitement building, we thought we’d have a look at what’s on the menu for the forthcoming weekend of music, art – and yes, of course, the odd bit of hedonism.
