LABELS: Filth On Acid, Phobiq, Form, 1605, Immersion
The Reactivitz can be considered as one of those fast-rising artists whose skills and perseverance allowed him to reach the support of the techno music industry.
Despite his young age, The Reactivitz scored several charting hits and signed on world relevant labels including Phobiq, Filth On Acid, Form, Footwork, 1605 to name a few. His sound, characterized by dark atmospheres, loud drums and groovy basslines, has been highlighted by many producers worldwide. I just want to create a different kind of techno sound so that people can recognize me when they listen to a track of mine in a club, said The Reactivitz. He is definitely well on his way to international recognition with his signature blend of old influences and state-of-the-art inventiveness.
As a producer, his motivation and hard-work in the studio have paid off. His tracks have received heavy support from iconic artists such as Umek, Jay Lumen, Alan Fitzpatrick, Sam Paganini, Marco Faraone and many more. In addition to performing and producing music, The Reactivitz recently launched his own label Immersion which came up with the purpose of enabling him to fully express his vision of techno.
That being said, it is obvious that The Reactivitz’s sound continues to evolve in order to elevate the underground music movement and becoming a recognized artist worldwide.
Hello mate! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Hey guys! I am doing well. I am currently finishing a new track that I have started yesterday. I have been away from the studio for a while now so I have many ideas to put into action. I have also planned to record the exclusive mix for My Favoruite Freaks with some unrleased tracks. Hope you will enjoy it.
Please tell us a bit about your latest releases!
My latest « Double Action » EP has been released on Sasha Carassi’s Phobiq. It was really nice to work together with Atroxx on this release as we have amost similar style. The results were great as we scored nice ranks in the Beatport Techno top 100.
During the past months, I released a strong EP from myself on my label Immersion featuring some great remixes from Hobo and Metido Hristov. Later, I released a new EP with Hollen on Funk’n Deep Black with two amazing remixes from Steve Mulder and Thomas Evans.
Which release was the one who gave you the most attention so far?
All releases are important for me as each track allow me to express my vision of techno and contribute to my artist profil. But if I have to give you the name of one release, I would say that the remix I did for M. Fukuda released on Funk’n Deep had a great impact on my carrier. This track received continuous support from the Drumcode team such as Sam Paganini, Marco Faraone, Ilario Alicante and other renowned artists. It allowed me to get more and more exposure on the techno scene.
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned?
My next « Seth » EP is coming on Popof’s form this Friday. I am really excited about this release as I have been a big fan of the label so far. I have also planned an EP on Spektre’s Respekt coming on July 25th + a remix for Martin Stoilkov coming on Set About on July 27th. There are some other exciting releases coming soon, but as they are not confirmed yet I can’t tell you anything about it.
As you are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience. What is your favourite city or country and why?
Great question and definitely not an easy one to answer. I had so many great experiences in the past and to be honest, I can’t only pick one city or country. I really enjoy playing in different countries as each one has its own culture and background. People’s reaction is always different and this is what i like most.
