For this session of our podcast series, we invite local artist iON to deliver a taste of his own productions and get everyone warmed up for the upcoming weekend.
Hailing from Transylvania, iON is a DJ, producer and avid record digger with a strong passion for music in all its forms since childhood. When he was just six or seven years old he started playing with portable cassette and CD players, making his own mixtapes by combining rock, hip-hop and early dance music. In high school, he truly understands the harmony of sounds and vibrations so he starts digging into electronic music, from dubstep and drum and bass to house, techno and minimal. Determined to move forward with the next steps, it didn’t take him long to start mixing and have his first gig while producing his own tracks in Ableton.
Throughout time, iON has constantly delivered inspiring releases via labels like Tzinah, Trick Track, Mood 24, Dinsubsol, Tupiar, Generatia 90, Vivus, Carpathian Sound, Conceptum.ltd, Zebra, Organic Society and our own feeder sound while dropping unforgettable selections alongside artists like Livio & Roby, Barac, Vid, Herck, Nu Zau, Sepp, Suciu, Miss I, Primarie and Mihai Pol, to name just a few.
“This set includes musical influences I have experienced in the past. The bass from dubstep, rhythm from drum and bass and the melodic part from house.”iON
feeder sound 388 mixed by iON reveals some of the artist’s own productions, including fresh unreleased cuts and his latest track for Ambrosia Records‘ fund-raising Various Artists compilation for Ukrainian children affected by the war, which opens the recording.
