Not one, but two guests are in this episode’s Behind The Beats hot seat, and that means double the fun. Not only do the Dutchmen talk about their upcoming album and how their career began, but we also got them to play a game called: ‘Who’s The One? – Sunnery Or Ryan’.
Next up on Behind The Beats is one of dance music’s power women: Nadine van Bodegraven. After 4 years at a law firm, she joined Armada Music to set up its legal department and went on to become the COO of the company. During this episode, she shares some invaluable business insights whilst also touching on her love for karaoke and the time she A&Red a track herself!
Rebecca Frank is the content director of Kiss UK, the influential commercial youth music network. Having worked in the radio music industry for over twenty years and for the Bill Gates foundation, she is a fount of knowledge, experience and stories. Rebecca shares some of those moments on Behind The Beats!
Moving from one electronic music icon to the next, this second episode of Behind The Beats’ second season places none other than Ferry Corsten in the hot seat. A bona fide legend within the dance music landscape, the Dutchman tells about his ongoing global What The F! tour, deep-dives into his love for ‘80s music and shares a frightening story about getting robbed at gunpoint during one of his tours. 
Kicking off season two of Behind The Beats, five-time #1 DJ in the world Armin van Buuren takes listeners back to the moment when he began to realize how much potential his A State Of Trance radio show truly had. He also talks about what performing means to him and – interesting fact – that he initially wanted to stop hosting his radio show once it hit 500 episodes. 
Geronimo is the dance radio host of one of North America’s biggest broadcasting stations (Sirius XM), and he met up with Reju and Harry to talk about his love for music and the importance of radio for the future generations. Having interviewed stars like Janet Jackson, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, it’s safe to say Geronimo has seen it all!
Our next guest is not only an internationally renowned DJ, producer and multidiscipline composer, but also the label boss of his DAYS like NIGHTS imprint. And did you know that this dance music mainstay DJs without his shoes, socks only? We strongly believe that a wave of cheer is in order here, because taking place behind the mic is none other than Eelke Kleijn.
Ready to make your acquaintance with a bona fide hitmaker? He’s a one-third of DJ/production trio Disciples, founded Outcry to provide management, publishing and label services for the musical misfits (himself included) and recently launched his solo career. Duvall is the name, and you’re about to find out what’s on his mind.
Though the spotlight often tends to focus on the main artist(s), the importance of songwriters and vocal producers should never be underestimated. Our next guest is all that as well as an artist in her own right, and she’s worked with premier industry names such as Timbaland, KSHMR, Steve Aoki and Armin van Buuren. Add to that the fact that she owns her own hot tub and can’t get enough of colors and sparkles, and we’ve gotten ourselves a winner. Welcome to the show, KARRA!
