This week we welcome songwriter and producer Ron Flieger onto Electronic Beats On Air.
Born in Germany but schooled in London, with formative years spent across Europe and America, it’s no surprise that Flieger makes huge, uplifting dance pop has little truck with geographical boundaries: you can imagine his music hitting the spot in any club which has a big enough system to take it.
Flieger will be talking to Mathias Weck about his singer-songwriter background, what role pop plays in his musical approach and his current Crystal Fighters remix which he’s giving away via his Facebook page. As well as introducing some of his favorite tracks, he’ll be playing an hour long set in the second half of the show. Hold tight.
You can tune in to FluxFM on Thursday from 10 p.m. (CET) which, if you’re in Berlin, can be found at 100.6 FM. If If you’re outside Germany you can, like always, head to the stream at fluxfm.de.
Miss it? You can catch up with the first hour through FluxFM’s on demand feature from Friday, while the DJ mix will be featured as a Mix of the Day later this week.
Last night we welcomed songwriter and producer Ron Flieger onto Electronic Beats On Air. You may remember him from his previous Mix of the Day in which we first got acquainted with his turbo-powered blog pop reworkings. Perhaps it’s something to do with his background—Flieger was born in Germany but has spent time in London, Europe, and America—but his uplifting sound has international appeal; you can easily imagine this kind of dance pop hitting the spot in any club which has a big enough system to take it. This original version-shy mix features a number of his own remixes as well as other artist’s reworks and features a mouthwatering line-up of oh-so-hot-right-now artists, including Lorde, Haim, Chvrches, and London Grammar with Disclosure.

“… ridiculously groovy remix! Flieger infuses the indie influenced “If So” with heavy synths and bouncy percussion, maintaining the feel-good vibe of the original.”
“A great band, a great track and a quality remix. A trio of goodness to behold. Ron Flieger drops a bomb with this mix of Atlas Genius and their track ‘If So’ which stirs up the pot for the weekend. Do yourself a favour and put this on your playlist. Awesome.”
“Ron Flieger‘s just revealed his official remix of “Flatline,” which gives the song a solid stomp that ought to get you fist-pumping through the heartbreak of your flatlining relationship. The change is both obvious and miscellaneous. Live it up, baby!”
“The brilliant Metric have been remixed by the equally amazing Ron Flieger” (ITSALLINDIE)
“Following hugely successful official work for both Ladyhawke and Foster The People, we’ve come to expect great things from the German producer, and that’s exactly what we get here. He’s done a killer mix on the original, keeping Emily Haines vocals at the forefront while adding in a crisp electro beat to back them up.” (CAVEMAN SOUND)
