Full of dense bass-lines, heavy drum hits, and riveting breakdowns.
Born and raised in Zagreb, the Croatian capital, Active Line Six has been a national DJ for over 20 years. Active Line Six became the youngest Resident DJ at “KULUSIC”, Zagreb, at 17 years old and became the youngest electronic Resident DJ in Croatia gaining a reputation for techno music played on vinyls. ‘SABOTAGE’ nights with DJ’s Kiki and Frajman at the popular Aquarius Club, Zagreb, became the lift-off point for his love of techno.
Active Line Six influences include Kraftwerk, Underworld, Shamen , Derrick May, Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, Sven Vaeth, Kevin Saunderson, Deep Dish and Richie Hawtin, to name a few. In 2010 Active Line Six began his own techno and tech house productions. First as a hobby, and now four years on he is extremely focused on producing electronic music of the highest caliber.
Active Line Six releases his music on the respected labels of Sci+Tec, Funk ‘n’ Deep, Consumed, Soulmate, Family Grooves, Audiometric and Sonique Mannheim. Active Line Six has released his track, “Roller Coaster” on the SCI+TEC label, also home to Grammy awarded DJ and Producer Ali Shirazinia.
“Roller Coaster” is characterized by a 125bpm tempo that does tend to move along nicely. As a whole, the track is full of dense bass-lines, heavy drum hits, and riveting breakdowns. Active Line Six is able to produce thick but subtle soundscapes punctuated by driving drumbeats. The sum total of this is a quality track with solid replay value. The best way to listen to this is while driving, working out or just grooving across the dance-floor, as it is upbeat enough to keep you energized but the overall lack of vocals lends itself to becoming uplifting background music to your daily chores and activities.
The music can set you off in a dreamy bliss or make you bob your head to its catchy bass riffs and booming drumlines. “Roller Coaster” is an awesome and amazing expression of tech-house. Active Line Six knows what you want to hear and has the talent to make it happen.
“Roller Coaster” has got a deep, hypnotic beat throughout that you can nod along to, while doing almost anything else. It seems techno is going the way of dubstep these days. It’s really sad that more artists are going with the “easy money making” keyboard methods rather than actually making good techno music. Active Line Six is the exact opposite! Grab this track.
