VINAI is an Italian EDM project consisting of two brothers, Alessandro and Andrea Vinai. After forming in 2011, they came to prominence in 2012 courtesy of a string of well-received remixes for the likes of LMFAO (for whom they put a new spin on ubiquitous chart-topper 'Sexy & I Know It') as well as the queen diva of pop, Nicki Minaj.
Further remixes followed for the likes of Steve Aoki, David Guetta, The Chainsmokers and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and as you’d imagine from a roll-call like that, the guys are very much hot property when it comes to EDM.
Remixes aside, VINAI also possess the Midas touch when it comes to their originals. Tracks such as 'Bounce Generation' and 'Legend' are proof of the fact, but it was barnstorming appearances at Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival that really set the guys on the course to greatness and cemented their place at EDM’s top table. So where do the guys conjure up all the “crazy energy” they bring to their sets and productions? It just comes from our “crazy minds”, says Alessandro. We don’t doubt that one bit.
Every now and again up pops a device, a piece of kit that can be used by different individuals for so many different applications. Sound Devices’ MixPre is one of those. A compact ultra-portable unit that fits into any backpack, the MixPre 6 is a six- channel high-resolution audio recorder that just so happens to be a mixer and USB audio interface at the same time. DJs, producers, podcasters, videographers and more can all make use of this hand-sized audio recorder.
