RADIO DIFFUSION is an electronic music project founded by Hans Staudinger and Sebastian Badics – both DJs, producers and passionate music enthusiasts. Call it fate, coincidence or simply great timing, their paths crossed on a music event on a farm in the wilderness of Upper Austria. Soon they discovered their mutual romantic idea about electronic music and they joined forces in order to lift their power to a whole new level.
Of course neither of them are unknown in the Austrian music scene lost in the Viennese downtempo-hype of the late 90s, Hans Staudinger already gained stage-experiences with live-electronic performances and residencies in eminent clubs such as FLEX and Donau. By 2006, he was co-founder of Flex vinyl’s and a year later he published his first release “Now and Then”, which clearly reflected his love for Chicago house. Hooked on techno and underground house, he started collecting vintage synthesizers and developed his producing skills while continuing his work on his farm.
While always feeling a great passion and appreciation for electronic music, it was during the late 90’s that Sebastian Badics started to buy his own techno and house vinyl. From that point forward it did not take long until he began playing his own gigs at illegal afterparties on a farm near Linz, which quickly led to various small but vastly successful events during the following years. While still producing techno and house in his home studio until 2004, his love from Drum n Bass eventually triggered a change in style.
Only a year later, in 2005, he did Drum n Bass / Reggae events in some of Linz’s most famous locations like the Tunnel, Posthof or Cembran Keller, quickly gaining more popularity among fans of the scene. While music was his passion, he still finished his studies in 2009 and started working at the renowned Ars Electronica Center, one of Linz’s most well known attractions.
In 2010 Hans Staudinger teamed up with Sebastian Badics and RADIO DIFFUSION was born as an authentic¹n¹synergetic strike duo with a clear-cut course: REALNESS & EGALITÉ! Delivering their precious tunes on a par with their beloved crowd, their live-sets are always a well balanced blend of references to the past, snapshots of the present and their own progress.
Their biggest hit was a release with Compost Records in spring 2013. The single ³BHVL² caught the attention of a huge audience and has been broadcasted on several radio stations in Austria (e.g. FM4) and beyond.
Heavy baselines, driving synth chords, sophisticated drum-programming that¹s the world of RADIO DIFFUSION! Beware, these cowboys got their colts loaded!
