Allessandro and Andrea VINAI are two Italian born electronic dance music producers who joined forces in 2011 after working on their own individual projects. Within two years of their collab, VINAI signed with Time Records to release their hit track “Hands Up”, which ended up receiving praise and support from a number of different international artists and producers in the game.
Now after linking up with Spinnin’ Records, the duo continues to release dance floor bangers, still receiving positive praise and feedback from some of the biggest DJs and producers around the globe, with tracks hitting #1 on the Beatport chart. “Bound Generation”, their massive club hit released alongside TJR, was the most played track at Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival this past March, and just five days after the drop, the single reached #1 on Beatport yet again, maintaining that spot for over two weeks and giving VINAI international exposure to gear up for their summer of festivals.
What originally began as one of LA’s newer dance parties, quickly transformed into an unstoppable tour featuring some of our favorite internationally known house artists. Night Bass, created by AC Slater and Dim Mak Records, started off as an event thrown monthly in LA at Sound Nightclub, and was proudly declared by BPM Magazine as the “Most Exciting New US Dance Event”.
Considered the “revival of AC Slater’s origins”, NIGHT BASS soon developed into its own house-driven genre. In an interview with Gotta Dance Dirty, AC Slater explained exactly what this new style he had coined meant to him:
“When I think of Night Bass I think of a combination of all the music that I really fell in love with at one point or another like UKG, Grime, Bassline, Rap, Old Skool Rave and whatever else. Anything that has a lot of bass gives me chills when I hear it. I’ve always loved UK music and Night Bass is just an American’s interpretation of it.”
“I started out making bass-heavy jackin house back in 2007, influenced by people like Drop the Lime & Switch who were taking influences from both house and UKG while everyone else was making like indie-electro. I experimented for a couple years and ultimately ended up going back to where I started, with the bass-heavy house sounds, but with a modern flavor. I guess its what I know best.”
Night Bass became such a successful brand that AC Slater partnered up with top DJs and producers in order to bring the funky beats to bass-heads all over Northern America, hitting 12 cities stretching from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, all in the course of one month. October was busy for bass house figureheads Kry Wolf, Hannah Wants, AC Slater and Jack Beats, as they hit the road to bring us a lineup full of irresistible bounce house, filth and UK garage. (more…)
