'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from I WANNABE - April 15, 2020
On WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15th, STUNNA presents another very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. In this week's broadcast, STUNNA welcomes seasoned DRUM+BASS producer and DJ I WANNABE to the show for an exclusive guest mix.
KIEV, UKRAINE-based artist I WANNABE (aka ANDREY SIROTKIN)'s fascination with electronic music coincided with the 'golden era' of the 1990s. It was then that ANDREY first heard the 1977 classic space disco album 'MAGIC FLY' by the FRENCH band SPACE. This initial encounter launched ANDREY's journey into the the exciting world of beats and synthesizers. DRUM+BASS act E-Z ROLLERS' record "MEATBALL" became ANDREY's point of no return in his new musical consciousness.
Since 2000, the DRUM+BASS style had become the guiding star of ANDREY's creative explorations. After trying out a number of different sequencers and subgenres, ANDREY worked hard to hone his own unique style. Starting in 2007, tracks under his I WANNABE guise have been released on a number of esteemed labels such as FORMATION, 22:22, DISTURBED, CYMBALISM, RUBIK, INCEPTION:AUDIO, MACHINIST MUSIC, CLEAR CONCEPTIONS, KOS.MOS MUSIC, and OFFWORLD RECORDINGS. He's received positive play and support from global heavyweights LONDON ELEKTRICITY, BAILEY, B.TRAITS, RSD, DODGE + FUSKI, CHRIS INPERSPECTIVE, CUTWORX, ELECTROSOUL SYSTEM, GVOZD, NEED FOR MIRRORS, DJ TRAX, and NOISIA. In his native land of UKRAINE, I WANNABE has gained wide popularity thanks to remixes for artists such as KAZKA, ZAPASKA, PLUTON + SKYER, MAUOQ, ATOMIC SIMAO, and KATYA CHILLY.
In 2018, I WANNABE launched his own DEVIANT DRUMS imprint with the 'DREAMS' EP. With exclusive remixes on the EP from scene stalwarts COMMIX and TOTAL SCIENCE, DEVIANT DRUMS is I WANNABE's label setup to only release in the vinyl format. Pushing his own label forward into the 2020s, I WANNABE continues to produce music for other quality labels, while maintaining a steady calendar of bookings around the world.
Join us for this session of 'THE GREENROOM' as I WANNABE presents a special guest set crafted exclusively for this week's broadcast. Tune in!
