1 – When and how did you get your interest in electronic music?
The first time I came into contact with electronic music was already as a small child. I think it was a ‘Dream Dance‘ Compilation, which caught my attention first. I always wondered how this weird sounding synthesizer sounds came to life. Also living in Vancouver for one year, and being influenced by the Canadian Dubstep scene, when I was fifteen years old, really got me into producing. Later on I discovered Techno and House when I came back to Europe. I think you can maybe still hear some of these influences in my productions these days.
2 – How did you decide to dedicate into production?
I still remember young me messing around with a RC-20 Loop Station by Roland and a cheap microphone. I think layering and playing all „instruments“ in the band myself, was always a motivational factor. So stepping up the game with buying a laptop and a DAW was really the changing point. In my holidays during 8th grade, I locked myself into the basement of our house, and two weeks later I came back up with something that I called „Album“ at that point. It was always the musical and the technical side which both together had a strong fascination for me.
3- What was your criterion when producing your last EP?
My last EP consists of two tracks, both which are featuring a played Instrument by a close person to me. One is a trombone which was played by Janosch, a good friend and great musician, and the other a accordion, which was played by my father. It turned out to be quite intimate and personal for us, but I guess that’s what music should be.
4 – Could you recommend a set that you are especially proud of, and that we can see on your Soundcloud or on YouTube?
I really like how this one turned out. To create a podcast is always something that I spend a lot of time on. But this one kind of flew all together pretty quick. I love the feeling, when you have a track, that you absolutely adore, and then the time comes to put it in a set, and it just fits in right away. I recorded this set during lockdown, so it comes with very upside down emotions for me.
5 – What can you tell us about the scene of your city? What would you improve?
The electronic music and club scene in Bern, Switzerland is quite vivid for the small size of this town, and the promoters and clubs are very inovative in my eyes. I always enjoy playing here or going out to concerts or club nights myself. The size makes it also very manageable, everyone knows everyone. It feels like a big family to me.
Sometimes I maybe wish that the genre gap wouldn’t be as big as it is. Most people find their niche, and once you’re in there, it seems like it’s hard to try out something new and different. I am also speaking for myself here. haha
6 – Finally, what can you tell us about your present and future projects?
For now, I am really looking forward to play once the clubs are open again. I spent a lot of time in the studio the last few weeks, and it is time now to get outside. There are some releases coming up soon, but I am also happy that I don’t know everything, that the future might bring, let’s see… 😉
