This week’s Vital Radio Resident Mix salutes one of the most iconic voices in dance music, Nadia Ali
As with any great era of music, there are always a handful of tracks that can be considered genre defining. For dance music -from the late 90′s to the new millennium – there were only a select few tracks that caught fire around the world. However, there was one track in particular that emerged from the underground and caught everyone off guard. At first, people knew Iio’s “Rapture” by the catchy “la, la, la” chorus as sung by a beautiful voice.
As the track emerged from the underground and blew up in the mainstream, “Rapture” became a true tour de force. Remixes from Creamer & K, Deep Dish and Armin van Buuren would follow and the track sold into the millions. Still, at the heart of what made “Rapture” so beautiful was that voice. That voice – and voice of a new generation in house music – belongs to Nadia Ali.

2010 saw the release of Eddie Thoneick’s track ‘Funk’ on Subliminal Records, the famous imprint of his early supporter Erick Morillo. Also, Eddie was invited to mix and arrange the ‘Strictly Miami 2010‘ compilation for Strictly Rhythm. Today Eddie is not only part of the Subliminal Records family as a solo artist, but has teamed up with label head Erick Morillo for a giant collaboration.
The duo’s first releases are ‘Nothing Better’, a classy piece of peaktime house music with the divine Shena on the vocals, and the huge summer anthem ‘Live Your Life‘ featuring Shawnee Taylor.
With more Erick Morillo & Eddie Thoneick productions in the pipeline and a tour-diary that continues to expand, taking in cities across a landscape of continents from Asia and Australia to North America, South America and Europe, the word lies at Eddie’s feet for the taking.
