iEDM Radio Episode 78: TAI
The roaring success of German based DJ & Producer TAI comes as no surprise. Known around the globe for creating an energy that kicks on long after the sounds are off, his club & festival shows include sets at Tomorrowland, Big City Beats, Beat Patrol, Future Music, Day Dream, Pacha, Holi Festival & many more. Meanwhile, his productions have collected mainstage DJ support from Dance music’s elite and has been spun across tastemaker radio stations such as BBC Radio 1 (UK), Radio 538 (NL), Sirius XM (USA) and Triple J (AUS).
TAI’s productions have seen him working with acclaimed imprints such as Spinnin, Dim Mak, Mixmash, Ultra, Doorn, Polydor, Boys Noize, Mad Decent, and Onelove. Among them a diverse list of high profile collaborators including Diplo, Watermat, The Bloody Beetroots, Steve Aoki and Scott Storch. All the meanwhile TAI’s been requested to infuse his signature touch into official remixes of heavyweights such as Kid Cudi, Sam Smith, Deorro, Felix Cartal, Peking Duk, Angger Dimas, Mason and the Swanky Tunes.
The past 12 months has seen TAI turn up the heat with “Brick Wall” a collab with US production legend Scott Storch (prod. Jay Z, Dre Dre, Beyonce, 50 Cent), “Overwrite” on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s “Smash The House” and the smash hit “Frequency” with Watermat on the mighty Spinnin. The collaboration with Watermat was named Danny Howard's “Future Anthem” and peaked at #5 Overall and #1 House on Beatport and Millions of Views online. Rudimental & Oliver Heldens vocalist, BECKY HILL, laid her stunning talents on Frequency (All My Love), a pairing that led to the record becoming a staple track on UK Radio. BBC Radio 1 named it the “Track Of The Day” and it went on to soar high in the UK Upfront Chart and iTunes Charts for several weeks.
With the momentum building steadily, 2016 is set to take it up another level with several tours in the works and new high profile collaborations with heavyweights, such as Laidback Luke, Bloody Beetroots and more still to be announced. One thing's for sure, TAI’s following is growing rapidly with a heightened anticipation for what’s to come.
