Peter Rauhofer, Pioneering DJ and Producer, Dead at 48

When I first started exploring dance music in the 90s, Peter was bridging the gap between the underground sound of New York’s house music with a commercial sound that clubbers of different backgrounds could relate to. Mad respect to someone who contributed so much to an entire scene when it was still experiencing its budding roots. RIP Peter Rauhofer.

Famed remixer of Madonna, Britney Spears loses long battle with brain cancer

Pioneering DJ, producer and remixer Peter Rauhofer died today after a long battle with brain cancer, according to a note from friend and manager Angelo Russo posted on Rauhofer’s Facebook page. He was 48.

The New York-via-Austria DJ is best known for his dance remixes of songs by Madonna, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Rihanna and even Yoko Ono. He also started the tribal house label Star 69. In 1999, under the name Club 69, he won the Grammy for Remixer of the Year for his reworking of Cher’s “Believe.”

“It makes me sad, not only that I have lost a friend, but that the world has lost an amazing talent and that future generations will never get to understand the magic that Peter created night after night all over the world,” Russo wrote. He added, “I ask that his true fans keep his legacy alive by sharing his music with anyone who may not have had the opportunity to experience it for themselves.”

ZAXX & Tiff Lacey Unleash Vocal Smash On Southern State Music

Zaxx & Tiff Lacey Unleash Vocal Smash On Southern State Music

South Africa is a hotbed for emerging talent. One of these talents is ZAXX who together with vocalist queen TIFF LACEY produced the vocal smash FEEL ME out on SOUTHERN STATE MUSIC April 15th. ZAXX lives in Johannesburg while TIFF LACEY currently resides just outside of London.

FEEL ME is the musical definition of ‘less is more’ through the balancing of ZAXX’s musical production with the simplistic nature of TIFF LACEY’s vocals.

Having entered the Beatport Top 100 within the first 24 hours of its release, as well as garnering early support from Giuseppe OttavianiShane HalconAndrew Rayel, and MaRLoFEEL ME will spotlight the skills of ZAXX and TIFF LACEY for a long time to come.

ZAXX is no stranger to the stage or to the music, having performed all across his native South Africa alongside top artists such as Markus SchulzAly & Fila and Cosmic GateZAXX has also secured a highly coveted residency spot at Southern Africa’s solely dedicated Trance and Progressive nightclub ‘Truth’.

ZAXXI wanted to capture the essence of the South African trance and progressive scene in one track. While creating it I thought about the past gigs I’ve played, both in big arenas and in small venues. The spirit of South African dance music is alive, although somewhat contained, so I thought why not make a track that can extend beyond our borders and show that spirit to the DJs and the dance floors of the world.”

TIFF LACEY and her highly intuitive vocal ability knows no borders, having collaborated with major names from all over the world such as Paul OakenfoldAly & FilaATB, and Teneshia.

TIFF LACEYWhen ZAXX contacted me about his production he spoke of the essence of the scene, and having worked with South African artists in the past, I knew right away exactly where he wanted to take it. South Africa is a unique country. It’s a country that is reaching out globally. It has scene that knows it is alive but also wants the world to know the same. You can get a sense of that with the simple lyrics I wrote for the track. They represent self-confidence yet are wrapped in a veil of mystery.”

ZAXX TIFF LACEY – FEEL ME (SOUTHEN STATE MUSIC)

Release date: April 15th (Beatport Exclusive) / April 29th All other outlets
