Rush Hour 035 w/ guest Victor Dinaire
Published on: February 2011
This months Rush Hour comes to you from deep in the studio, where Christopher Lawrence is busy completing his third artist album including five upcoming singles plus remixes for Talla 2XLC and Reaky.
This months special guest is Victor Dinaire from San Diego. Growing into his role as a young DJ in New York City, Dinaire spent countless hours in the underground dance scene honing the craft and learning the art of programming from masters such as Junior Vasquez. Promoting and throwing events to showcase his own sound, Victor quickly began to build up momentum behind his name. The record executives at BMG / Logic Records took notice, and soon offered him the opportunity to mix a series of compilation CDs for the label. His first release “Logic Trance 4″ went straight into the Top 5 on the CMJ charts and proceeded to sell out, as did the Timeless Trance series “Midnight and Morning Sessions” and the following “Entrance” on Bonzai Music Italy / Megahit US.
From this initial success, Victor was soon performing out in clubs across the US as a regular at NY’s heralded Arc nightclub, Spundae LA, Avalon Hollywood, On Broadway San Diego, and as resident for 2 years at Blue, Miami. Turning his attention towards expanding his audience on a larger scale, Victor began his domination of the airwaves. His weekly radio show “Peak Hour” on Sirius Satellite Radio was soon followed by “Resident Nation” on Music Choice TV, and ultimately Future Progression on XM. Seeking to push dance music beyond the airwaves, Victor took Future Progression to a new level by throwing his legendary New York City loft parties of the same name creating both an immense following in the club and on the air.
Now a mainstay on the international club circuit, Dinaire has performed alongside the world’s biggest DJs such as Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond, Infected Mushroom, Blank & Jones, Steve Porter, Junior Vasquez, John 00 Fleming, ATB, Flava Flav, and Judge Jules at events spanning Vietnam, South Korea, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica and Brazil. As an Eventvibe.com sponsored DJ and one of the main artists on the EV Music roster, Victor has become the definitive sound of trance in America. His latest radio show “Lost Episode,” reaches more people than any other DJ in the country at over 80 million homes and cars in America alone. Broadcast through XM Satellite Radio, Worldspace Satellite Radio, Music Choice TV, AOL Radio, ETN.fm, Digitally Imported (Di.fm), and syndicated across a multitude of FM stations worldwide, the show has brought trance music to the masses and spawned its own club nights at California hot spots Avalon in Hollywood and 4th and B in San Diego.
Focusing on the future, Victor Dinaire has immersed himself in the studio with stunning results. His remixes of ‘Clutch’ (Ferry Corsten’s # 1 track of September 2008), ‘Sonora,’ ‘The Departure,’ and ‘Fractured’ along with the single ‘No Way Through’ have charted as some of the most popular tracks on Beatport and received massive support from Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond, Sander van Doorn, Lange, Sean Tyas, Christopher Lawrence, The Thrillseekers and John Askew. Between the popularity of his original productions, the immense success of his radio show, and his critically acclaimed club nights, Victor Dinaire has remained at the forefront of the industry and established himself not only as a pioneer of dance music – but as one who pushes the boundaries everyday.
