Q-dance presents a ‘brand-new’ Classics podcast
Australian hardstyle hotshot Synthsoldier is launching a brand new radio show and record label named VNTG (pronounced Vintage). The radio show will be broadcast on Q-dance Radio every first Monday of the month from 8pm – 9pm Sydney time.
The hour-long show will take you on an electrifying journey through a decennium of the harder styles in dance music. Synthsoldier explains that via the VNTG radio show, he wants to give hard dance fans from all over the world an unrestricted insight into the roots, and latest scoops of the current hardstyle scene.
“Each show is going to feature at least 2 tracks from each year of the past 10 years, including the current year of 2016. This means that I will take the listener as far back as 2007, and travel through the hardstyle time machine to the sound of the future, showcasing a vast selection of hard dance classics as well as the next generation of hardstyle heroes. The VNTG radio show is a unique concept that will bring musical diversity into the rich pool of hard dance podcasts.”
During his young career, Synthsoldier AKA Jaspar Zhou (21 from Melbourne, VIC) has previously hosted Q-dance’s Defqon.1 radio show, and the long running radio show Down Underground, which broadcast its final episode in August last year. He says that with his own new radio show he will continue his support for homegrown talent.
“It’s thanks to Down Underground that my music got picked up by Q-dance back in 2013. This fast tracked my career and led to a collaboration with Frontliner not long after, and single releases on both Q-dance Records and Q-dance’s sub-label NEXT. I realize the beneficial impact of having your music included in a radio show / podcast, and your track being played by thousands of hard dance fanatics from all over the world.”
Alongside VNTG Radio, Synthsoldier is also launching a record label called VNTG Records.
“This is going to be a great platform for talented artists to officially release their music, and land a spot on the podcast. I want to encourage all talented artists, Australian and overseas, to send in your productions for the radio show. Besides the vast selection of classics, I will also be featuring at least 2 exclusive tracks in the show each month when playing the tracks representing the current year of 2016, and the selected tracks will also get a release on the new label, VNTG Records.”
Tune in this Monday!
The first episode of the VNTG radio show will be broadcast on Monday, February 1st. If you are a producer and want to submit your music for the show, you can send your track as a private SoundCloud link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
