Starkillers
Starkillers
It's rare when the label of "rock star" is justified in dance music, and refreshing when that success is backed up the musical talent, drive, and sincerity that is possessed by Nick Terranova. His signature blend of catchy vocals, booming bass lines and genre-defying range are always in full effect on tour or at his "Dirty Sound" residencies at Late Night Empire in Las Vegas, Crobar Chicago, Lizard Lounge in Dallas, On Broadway in San Diego, Bleu in Detroit, and Bliss in San Antonio. The energy and sexiness that are hallmarks of Terranova's live shows are also his trademarks as a producer and remixer - a dance music "triple threat." That dirty vocal track your girlfriend keeps singing in the shower? It's a Nick Terranova production.
The Las Vegas native is best known as the man behind the MASSIVE hit Discoteka. The very first track released under his Starkillers alias lived at the top of the Billboard Dance and Beatport sales charts, named an "Essential Selection" on Pete Tong's BBC1 radio show, nominated for best underground track at the IDMAs, and supported by almost every major DJ out there. But the track's success simply encouraged the hard working producer to get his ass back into the studio.

Terranova has an impressive list of musical accomplishments: he runs the record label Terratraxx that he started in 2002, has produced a ton of original productions and done an equally impressive number of high profile remixes. Done both in his own name and under pseudonyms such as Starkillers, Aftertouch, Terranova, Hi_Lo, and Nick Touch, they include remixes of iiO's "Rapture," Stevie Nick's "Stand Back," Paul Oakenfold's "Sex & Money", Holmes & Ives' "8 Letters," and DJ Dan's "Rock to the Rhythm."

Nick's collaborative partnership with close friend (and neighbor) Austin Leeds has been equally successful. The Terranova & Austin Leeds duo have produced a string of hits together, including "Shake Me," "Rock Me," "For the Pills," "Only You," "Dirty Sound" (Stealth Records), and "Acid Disco" as well remixes of Dario Nunez's "My World" (Stereo Productions) and Dave Spoon's "This Machine" (Toolroom Records). They are a dream team on the road as well, headlining numerous "Starkillers vs. Austin Leeds" and "Terranova & Austin Leeds" nights around the country.

Expect big things in the future for Nick Terranova. He kicks off his U.S. tour, appropriately named the Dirty Sound Tour in August, and will be taking the "Dirty Sound" global with stops lined up in South America, Europe, Asia, Canada, and Australia. He will be releasing the compilation "Dirty Sound Volume 1: The Injection" on August 28th on Made Records, and he is also putting the finishing touches on a massive collaboration with Paul Van Dyk for PVD's next artist album.
Not bad for such a rising star: Nick Terranova and his "Dirty Sound" are everywhere.
Just keep an eye on that girlfriend of yours…

Kevin Alves would be hard pressed to deny the reality of destiny. As early as he could remember Kevin always wanted to be a musician and was involved with music from singing to starting his own band at age 15. “Music is the most intense way of expressing myself I’ve ever found. Alves’ influence comes from many styles of music. All eras and genres are fair game as his strongest inspiration comes f
rom music that evokes emotion.
Alves is currently working on his original music and sound design. He recently released a remix for Ultra Records of Ecotek’s “Into the night.” Also a release with Nadia Ali’s label, who Alves worked with for a remix of “Point the Finger,” which stayed on Beatport’s top 100 for several weeks, Look forward to Alves’ new productions and sample
cds coming very soon, and check him out in your hometown where he will be spinning at your favorite venues.
