Sly One & Jurrane - Look into the Futurity

Reported by Hassan Roumani / Submitted 27-09-11 16:36

Sly One & Jurrane are one of the fastest-emerging talents in trance. Their trademark high-octane, energetic DJ sets and powerful, uplifting productions have emerged from the secretive London underground club scene and taken the world by storm, with their tracks and remixes seeing sustained support from all the biggest names in the trance world. Let's catch up with them ahead to the Futurity gig, 1st of October 2011 at The White House

Hi guys, tell us about your year so far, what have been the highlights?

2011’s been a real production year for us with four new Sly One vs Jurrane originals either released or due to come out on Discover, Armada and Perfecto. We’re thrilled with the variety of sounds showcased across the tracks and you can definitely expect something different from the forthcoming Perfecto release! On the DJ side of things, probably the highlight is signing a deal to become resident DJs for Forward, a superb promotion in Leeds who are making real waves in the trance scene at the moment.

Tell me about how you came about to collaborate with each other and what it’s like working together?

J: We’ve known each other for years and share a similar background in coming through the ranks – and becoming resident DJs – at London’s Planet Angel parties. As we had similar musical tastes, we decided to write the track that became ‘Time Bomb’ in 2006, and it was signed to Discover soon after. We’ve been making music together ever since.

As for working together, it’s a great laugh. We have the odd disagreement but they’re few and far between. Our studio sessions are probably best described as a jamming session; we fire up a bunch of loops on Ableton and just take it from there.

G: We complement each other well. I veer towards the nutty professor at times and while it has its advantages in the form of crazy noises and ideas, I can end up disappearing up my arse if someone isn’t reining me in! Conversely, I add a bit of a perfectionist element to Jim’s broad-brush ideas.

How would you sum up your sound?

J: Pumping party trance that’s all about putting smiles on faces on the dance floor.

G: We want to have fun and we want everyone in the room to have fun. Too many people take music - especially electronic music - too seriously. We want to see craziness! The music we make reflects that.

Who have been your biggest influences to date?

J: I’ve always admired Ian Betts’ sound as his productions encapsulate all that’s good in pumping, uplifting trance. Production-wise, we’ve learnt a lot from the likes of Activa, Daniel Kandi and Giuseppe Ottaviani. The stuff that comes out of their studios is always top-notch.

G: I have so much trouble with these questions! Thanks Jim for stepping in - there are too many names to name and I always feel guilty not mentioning people!

How would you sum up the trance scene in the UK at the moment?

J: It can be challenging because there are fewer venues and parties around at the moment, and those that remain tend to be dominated by the same big names. That said, there seem to be more and more smaller events springing up and they’re incredibly important to the future of the scene.

What do you enjoy more, producing an epic track or DJing to a packed crowd at a club or festival?

G: For sheer energy and excitement, you really can’t beat those massive, up-for-it gigs when the ideas are flowing fast, the tunes you pick are just right atjust the right time, everything just works, the crowd are right in there with you, the lights are flashing fast and the bass is pounding. It’s like life fuel. I couldn’t do it every single night though - a lot of the time, being closeted up in the studio with a nice big mug of tea, the wind and rain outside, the cat asleep on the sofa and the same bassline looping round and round is pure heaven.

J: They’re fulfilling in different ways. Nothing beats playing to a big crowd who’re totally up-for-it because you get to directly see the enjoyment they’re getting from your music. On the other hand, the much longer-term process of finishing a track that you’re completely happy with brings a different sense of satisfaction, especially when you have the faith it’s going to rock dance floors all over the world.

Tell us about your new compilation, Global Trance UK.

J: Chris Hampshire and John Askew approached us around the middle of last year, telling us about their really cool concept of a trance compilation series featuring talent specific to particular regions of the world. We jumped at the chance, especially as it involved taking an A&R approach to signing a lot of exclusive unsigned music.

G: That was the killer!

J: Yeah, the brief was quite exact: everything on the album had to be from producers in the UK, and unsigned and exclusive. It was very exciting because it was pretty much unique as an album concept and gave us the chance to really make the project our own. Chris and John were clear from the outset; there also had to be plenty of unreleased Sly One vs Jurrane tracks on the album (be it new singles, remixes or reworks), and fresh new music from new and established names to represent the very best of the UK trance scene. This was very definitely not a project where we'd just be licensing a dozen of the biggest tunes out there at the moment - it was something quite different.

G: We’ve had quite a few emails from people who’ve spent 80 minutes lost in it and come out the other side saying “wow, that was incredible”. That’s so gratifying to hear, especially for a CD with very little in the way of big names. We spent so much time on it and we’re pleased that it’ll give so many people pleasure for years to come.

J: The result of all our efforts is available to buy on the Recoverworld website and we’re thrilled with how it’s turned out. We hope you like it too!

What can we expect from your set at Futurity?

J: You’ll be hearing several exclusive new Sly One vs Jurrane original tracks and bootlegs, plus some of the freshest music that’s been floating our collective boats recently. I’m sure we’ll squeeze in a few classics too. Just make sure the bar’s stocked with black sambuca!

G: Somebody shut him up. I barely made it back to my hotel room last time the night went that way! Yeah, expect mayhem.

Can you tell us what you have planned for the future, any new productions in the pipeline?

J: We’re pretty busy. We’ve a collaboration with Irish stars Walsh & MacAuley due to come out on Armin van Buuren’s Armada label, a brand new single under our new Protest Movement alias exclusive to a forthcoming compilation on Perfecto and we’re currently working with a very exciting vocalist on a big-room vocal trancer. Stay tuned also for a very special Sly One vs Jurrane remix of one of the biggest Discover tracks of the last few years – you won’t want to miss this one!

G: We’re really concentrating on originals at the moment and only taking remix work if special opportunities come along. It’s given us quite a bit of focus, hence all the new music!

Finally, what has been the standout DJing experience in your careers to date as Sly One vs Jurrane?

J: For me, it’s probably a big event called Eastern Connection in Poland a couple of years ago. To headline a huge open-air party in a football stadium in the middle of nowhere was a real experience. We’d love to go back to Eastern Europe sometime as the scene there is really vibrant.

“I’m a massive fan of Sly One and Jurrane... they have such a fresh sound that I just can’t get enough of. I think they will be huge.” - John Askew: Trance.Nu, 2008

The Sly One vs Jurrane partnership is exclusively signed to UK trance giant Discover Records for original tracks, and has released over a dozen records and remixes on the Recoverworld series of labels. The duo’s massive 2010 smash Everything To Me on Discover swept the board with support from nearly every major trance DJ worldwide and licensing on countless compilations.
