Music has always been a central part of my life, especially those music that I could loose myself into and drift into phantasy worlds. When I was a kid I got in contact to music by listening to mix tapes my parents made for themselves. Without knowing what exactly it was particularly electronic sound by Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel Jarre or Kraftwerk unleashed my fantasy. All those science fiction like sounds got me excited by this time.
I already wanted to produce records back in the 90s, just for fun. But I was never really satisfied with the result because of the limited hardware I owned by this time. By the end of 2007 a friend of mine showed me some software he was producing and I saw amazing possibilities combining this software with the hardware I still had. The first usable tracks were done pretty quickly then and I decided to release them.
I was never much into sending out promo stuff so a friend and I decided to put some money in a pot and release the first own record. Thatâ€™s how â€žDo Not Resist The Beatâ€œ started – as a future platform for releasing my own productions and interpretations of electronic music.
After taking a small break I started to get engaged with contemporary electronic music again in 2006. After this time of abstinence there was a lot to rediscover, it was a quite exciting time. I was browsing records shops and the internet and found productions by Marcel Dettmann, Sleeparchive and many more. This was the music I liked by that time, it sounded new, fresh and interesting. And as well clubs like Berghain and Tresor which has been reopened in 2007 were the places I spent a lot of time and got inspired again.
I want to express certain moods, this is working best on the mental layer. But I wouldnâ€™t say that Iâ€™m inspired by dub. The « dubbyâ€œ sound just came by itself while producing and Iâ€™d call it a follow up of the whole production process which aims to find sounds that reflect or mirror my emotions, my feelings, my moods. Furthermore I like trippy tracks, but in the club context I mostly like physical tracks in a wider sense.
The idea for that project came up in a quite dark moment. Being inspired by some Worlds End movies the slogan of The End Of All Existence came to my mind. Certain moods are often give birth to concepts of releases, and this slogan suited this end of the world scenario I was into by that time. So I developed the idea to make some kind of soundtrack to a fictional worlds end.
Yes, for sure. As this project is about being some kind of soundtrack, also the tracks (even if itâ€™s only four of them) should be in a cascading, logical order so youâ€™re able to have a kind of a travel through my fiction.
While producing the acid sounds I always had that alien theme in my head, as well as the picture of the well-known alien head. The 303 sound is quite special and unique, so it was a logic consequence to make another project out of it. Furthermore I like the idea of creating projects that are coherent and which develop their own enclosed world.
Tu sors trÃ¨s peu de disques en dehors de tes propres labels. Pourquoi ce choixÂ ? You edit only few discs outside your own labels. Why ?
Due to my wish to express I always have certain imaginations about upcoming releases. Thematically certain tracks should be inside some context. You hardly get that possibility if you release on other peopleâ€™s label because thereâ€™s other people who decide about the tracks, the artwork, the whole process. Having your own label gives you some kind of flexibility, I can decide by myself what, how, when and in what case I release a track. This doesnâ€™t mean Iâ€™m opposed to release on other labels, but I donâ€™t want to create the whole process to random and inflationary.
The environment you grow up at or you live in for a longer period of time always has an influence on you. I always liked the rough, raw and dark feel Berlin had until the mid 90s. This suited my mood pretty well by this time. The biggest influence were memories from my younger days. The changes of the last years (painted houses, luxury apartments, endless shopping centers) I donâ€™t find them inspiring at all. If it comes to other places, I could imagine to live in Japan one day.
