R&S co-founder Renaat Vandepapeliere will be joining us live this Tuesday (12/12) for the next installment of DJ Mag Panels. The A&R guru was pivotal in techno making the leap from America to Europe in the 1980s and has helped shape modern dance music like few others.
Established alongside his wife Sabine, R&S were champions of Derrick May and Joey Beltram in the early ‘80s and have continued to be highly respected dance music prognosticators.
The label’s newest series has been dubbed RV Trax. The series will reflect the sound of Vandepapeliere's DJ sets. The first release, due out January 2018, features original productions from G-Prod and Hermetics in addition to a Birds of Paradise remix courtesy of Steve Legget. The series will continue to focus on lesser-known producers.
The Words & Music panels begins at 4pm GMT. The panel will be live streamed via DJ Mag's Facebook.
