Electronica musician Dan Vine is riding the crest created by his album “Dreams” and a pair of hot singles stirring up the dance energy. Both “Tech By” and the titular single are melodic gems that highlight Vine’ full-bodied, elevating trance sound. His dance music is infused with just the right amount of progressive structure and buoyed up by melodicism that soaks into the brain and galvanizes the muscles.
“Dreams” (the song) and “Tech By” prove that Vine is among those at the epitome of the current indie electronica scene. No wasted audio space is evident – the sounds fill out the air perfectly. Robust melodies, streamlined dance pulse, seductive sonic textures – all the key elements for prime trance and club-friendly tunage are in place and in spot-on balance.
Vine began his adventures as a music maker playing the guitar. At 14, he decided the guitar would be his lifelong friend. He even went on to study at the Conservatory of Quebec, putting his skills to use performing with bands and teaching the guitar to others.
But it came to his attention that the music he played was a far cry from the music he tended to listen to – disco, trance and other electronica. “Dance music was a big part of my life!” exclaims Vine.
He found himself aspiring to write that kind of music himself – powerful synth melodies, muscular bass and hooky percussive rhythms became his focus. In 2005, Vine, a keyboard, an electric guitar and a pair of computers commenced a journey into electronica that is beginning to culminate now with the inroads into the industry being made by his “Dreams” album.
And the guitar still factors into his music. With the right manipulation, Vine makes his guitar sound like a synth, thus blending his beloved instrument seamlessly into the electronica for which he harbors such a passion.
In December of 2007, the first song “Listen to This” on his CD was tapped for a double-disc compilation in London by Sonic Vogue Records. (Vine is the only Canadian on the compilation) He is currently working on some remixes which will be posted in the near future on his YouTUBE official page www.youtube.com/danvineofficial .
