Unlike most DJs, Radius began his musical career as Dance Music Producer. Inspiration came from a healthy obsession of club atmosphere and Electronic Dance Music and artists/DJs such as Tangerine Dream, Infusion, BT, ATB, Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Judge Jules, Carl Cox, Sasha and Digweed, and later Shiloh. His first album Spherical Motion is an original, continuous, full-length mix of Techno and Ambient/Trance once stated that it was “Tangerine Dream meets Speedy J“.
His second album Pulsatile Affect moved into the realm of Progressive House, incorporating the vocals of newcomers Maxi and Krissy, guitar riffs from Vincent Chiaramonte of Kurst and two live performances by Seventh Street Garage (an up and coming live Electronica Music Duo).
Radius’ studio, which was once solely used for recoding and performing Electronic Music, was opened to the Boston after-hours crowd in the Summer of 2006, quickly becoming the areas largest underground after-hours spot. His computer-based studio recording software Ableton Live and carefully chosen hardware and PA system allowed Radius’ studio to become the areas best sounding Electronic Music studio.
The studio was a place where friends gathered, danced, and mingled Friday night through Sunday. It was a place where attitudes, stresses of the week, and gripes were checked at the door. The principles of PLUR (peace, love, unity, and respect) were the only rules.
Additions to the studio included trampolines, spider webbed ceiling, and a ceiling-mounted projector displaying trippy visual effects and movies. It was also a place where guest Djs, from the Providence and Boston area were invited to spin.
Recording his after-hours shows allowed him to produce 13 mix Cds (3 of which are double albums) entitled Progressive Sessions. The Progressive Sessions are eclectic mixes of House, Trance, Tribal House, and his preferred genre, Progressive House.
Recurring guests to the studio were provided with copies of the previous week's mix. Several issues with the parking and noise ordinances in the industrial park area where the studio was located forced Radius to close the studio and take his show into the clubs in the Fall of 2007.
Progressive Sessions Vol. 11 through Vol. 13 CD1/CD2 featured the entry of Radius to the club scene. Radius has performed at Roxy Boston, Tabu, Ultralounge, Phoenix Landing, and Shine Lounge as headliner and opening for international Djs including DJ Chris P, DJ Adilson, DJ Craig Mitchell, DJ Deka, and Jonny Viscious. Radius continues to perform at clubs, however is currently focused on creating new music in the studio.
Vanessa Dawne's love for electronic music and dancing attracted her to move from central Maine to Boston and the club scene. She was introduce to Radius at his afterhours studio by a mutual friend in 2006 and shortly after he moved to Florida for a short period. While he was in Florida and after moving back to the Boston area, they kept in touch. In 2009 they grew very close from spending time in his studio as she watched and listened to him produce progressive and electro house music. After hearing her sing along to a Paul Van Dyk track they remixed it and replaced the original vocals with Vanessa's vocals. They have produced close to 20 tracks together in less than 2 years.
His creativity has been her inspiration for writing and vocalizing their tracks. Radius and Vanessa Dawne's dynamic chemistry compliment their artistic ability and talent which resonates in their music. They are driven and ambitious with a common goal, to create emotions that inspire and move its listeners; enchanting and captivating melodies that are engaging and powerful.
Together they have performed at State Ultra Lounge (July 2011) and .:therapy in Providence, RI (September 2011). They will be performing at Lupos in Providence, RI for Bass Monster Halloween presented by Tight Crew and True Crew on October 28, 2011.
