ARTIST OF THE WEEK- FAST DISTANCE
Tune in to Static Progress each night this week for an exclusive guest mix from FAST DISTANCE:
Fast Distance is a project created by Belgian producer Franz Hlusek aka Arpegia. Franz has always showed an interest for electronic dance music, especially for melodic, euphoric and uplifting trance.
Since he was very young, Franz started to take some music lessons. His parents bought him his first keyboard when he was 11 years old. When the trance sound emerged in the nineties in Belgium, Franz was instantly drawn to this style and started mixing tracks together using his father's hardware at first, as he was performing animations for various events. When he turned 18 he bought a synthesizer and a pair of turntables, and soon after he started buying the necessary equipment to build his professional studio to engineer and record his own productions.
His career started in 2007 when after nearly 2 years of hard work he signed some of his productions on famous labels such as Armada Music , Monster Tunes, Baroque, Cloud 9 and his tracks are supported by the world biggest DJ's including Armin Van Buuren, TiŽsto, Paul Van Dyk, Above and Beyond, Ferry Corsten and many others. Franz also collaborates on some productions with talented artists such as Roger Shah and Fred Baker.
His interest for electronic dance music also shows through his love of Dj'ing, he has his own radio show and he is also able to perform gigs worldwide and drop some quality trance bombs on the dance floor!
