RadarLive 2007'nin rüya gibi "line-up"ı en sonunda dün MTV'de açıklandı. Canlı performansını yıllardır görmek istediğim Marilyn Manson'ın "Headliner" olduğu festival'in sanatçı listesinde sadece Booka Shade, CSS, SCSI 9 ve Juliette&The Licks'i görmek bile bir kaç dakika boyunca sevinç çığlıkları atmama neden oldu :)
30 Haziran - 2 Temmuz tarihleri arasında İstanbul solar Beach'te gerçekleşecek olan festival bence, daha önce 50 Cents gibi isimleri Headliner diye yutturmaya çalışan organizasyonlarla kıyaslandığında Dinamo 103.8'in organizasyonu olan RadarLive , (Bence) şimdiye kadarki en iyi line-up'la dinleyici karşısına çıkan, gerçek bir festival olacak gibi görünüyor.
Geçen sene boyunca Gazoz69'da defalarca bahsedilen electro guruları Booka Shade, Brezilya'dan Myspace.com'la dünyaya açılan ve dünya çapında hayranlar kazanıp 2 senedir o festival senin bu festival benim dolaşan, Rock, Funk ve Electronica'yı harmanlayan CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy), hakkında artık birşey yazmaya gerek olmayan SCSI 9, Geçen kış istanbul'daki performasıyla insanları tek kelimeyle çıldırtan Juliette Lewis liderliğindeki Juliette&The Licks ve tabi ki esas oğlan, headliner Marilyn Manson, 30 Haziran - 2 Temmuz arasında Solar Beach'te olmayı zorunlu kılan nedenlerden sadece birkaçı..
Gerekli tüm detaylar şu anda yenilenmekte olan RadarLive sitesinde; RadarLive 2007

Trevor Loveys & Rose & Belsey - The Source
Trevor started recording in the early 1990's after being inspired listening to producers such as Ron Trent, Abacus, Blaze and Masters At Work. He taught himself keyboards and drum programming after buying a synth and Akai sampler and after spending a year developing his sound and production skills he released his first single, 'Soul Motive' on Nuphonic Recordings. This release caught the attention of producers and music press alike, gaining respect from Deep Dish, Kevin Mckay and Everything But The Girl's Ben Watt.
House Of 909 is the production outfit Trevor is best known for and it was on this label that he released all his early productions such as ‘Deep Inside/Voices From Beyond,’ ‘Future Soul Orchestra/Up and Above’ and In To Deep. Trevor's music caught the attention of Richard Breeden the man behind the legendary Tribal label and now Pagan UK and It was this label that gave Trevor the chance to record his first album 'The Children We Were'. It was this album that put House Of 909 on the deep house map attaining album of the Month in Muzik and DJ not to mention features in NME, Music Week and iD.
In 1998 after having some personal and creative differences with his partner Nigel Casey, Trevor decided to go solo and started producing for his friend Omid 16B's label Alola. It was then that he started to collaborate with his bass playing friend Chris Pedley to create the album 'Era' which crossed the boundaries from deep house and electro to broken beat and downtempo. ‘Era' was album of the month in Ministry Magazine.
In 2002 Trevor signed to Freerange and has since released singles ‘Elevate Your Mind’ , ‘Feel the Horns’ , Lotta Livin’ and the acclaimed ‘The Bounce’ as well his debut album for Freerange entitled ‘Intstella’ in Summer 2004.
Aside from his solo project he teamed up with West London’s Solid Groove to form Switch. Their debut release ‘Get Your Dub On’ on Freerange was one of those rare records that twelve months after release was still being played nationwide. A combination of fucked up beats, funk from the drawer and some twisted%

Booka Shade - s.t.a.r.r.z.
(Please respect all artists and buy music!)
The studio partnership of producers, remixers and live act Booka Shade aka Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier has come a very long way since its incarnation in the early 90s. Back then, Arno and Walter were a synth pop act signed to a major label. They released two albums and did a number of tours, but at the same time they were being seduced by the emerging trance and techno sounds they heard in Frankfurt clubs like The Omen.
Subsequently, Arno and Walter changed their focus to club projects and released trance records on R&S, Tommy Boy and Sven Vath’s Harthouse imprint. However, it was on Dutch label that Booka Shade scored their biggest releases with the progressive ´Kind of good´ and ´Silk´.
By the end of the 90s, Booka Shade had tired of the trance-techno scene and again needed a new direction to focus on. At this stage, they decided to found their own label. By chance, they met with Thomas Koch, aka DJ T, one of Germany’s most experienced DJs. Arno and Walter’s old friends Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung, aka M.A.N.D.Y., whom they knew from the 90s in Frankfurt’s club scene, completed the new partnership.
By 2002, the Get Physical label was launched, with Booka Shade responsible for all of the productions and remixes by M.A.N.D.Y., DJ T., Sunsetpeople and Chelonis R. Jones. In just a few years, the label won supporters from a wide spectrum of DJs because its releases covered a broad brush stroke of electronic styles, including trance, electro and techno, within its club-friendly grooves.
In 2004, with Get Physical established as one of Europe’s most respected new electronic music labels, Booka Shade decided to step from the shadows and pursue their own solo career again.
Get Physical was home to Booka Shade’s widely acclaimed and admired 2005 debut album ‘Memento’, which saw Walter and Arno use the experience that they had gained working in the pop and trance spheres during the 90s to stunning effect. Slivers of pop melody and shiny trance euphoria are underpinned with twitchy, stripped bare beats. The end result was an ultra-modern, occasionally menacing and evocative but always rewarding work.
The label was also the outlet for their huge 2005 club hit, ‘Mandarine Girl’ and ‘Body Language’ - both firm favourites in their live show - with the latter track, a collaboration with M.A.N.D.Y, winning the DJ award ‘Ibiza Track of the Season 2005’ and gaining support from big league DJs as well as underground house and techno names.
