Interview with Nik Wel

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • Producing music is my way to express myself. It is always a mirror of my mood and a process influenced by different situations in my life. Music has played an important role and has been with me since my childhood. I was addicted to electronic music since I was 12 years old.
    In 2004 I started DJing with turntables, later on I did my very first steps as a producer with Fruity Loops v4 (today: FL Studio). After a long break, I rediscovered my passion and started producing again with FL Studio in 2019. Actually I am producing every day and I never get tired of it.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • In the beginning of my career I loved every single track I made and tried to release it. Due to improving my skills week by week I often got the problem that I didn’t like the music anymore which I made months ago at the day of release. But now since I have found my own personel style and have taken place in the hard techno genre. I am excited about every release and I am happy to see it going around the world.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • I really like to collaborate with other artists! The results can be more than the sum of all parts and to collaborate gives me more experience. In addition I learn from the other artists ideas and working methods. I really like remixing for the same reasons and I see every remix as a competition to give the track a typical “Nik-Wel-touch”. I like my music being remixed by other artists to see my idea developed in their special way.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • In my opinion track titles in the electronic music genre are not such important as in other genres. I always try to use track titles which fit to my personality (e.g. I search for them in the area of physics) or they are inspired of samples I use.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • The cover (a good artwork) of an ep is very important for me. I do much promotion on social media like Facebook or Instagram including videos for my releases. In my opinion a good artwork gives a very strong attraction to the release.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • On one side I am looking for big names but on the other side it is important for me that labels do good promotion and make nice artworks. A kind, respectful and professional communication is also important. I already had releases on big labels which disappointed me in these points so I won’t release there again. Sometimes small labels asking me for releasing an ep with them and I agree everytime when I am convinced that they meet my expectations.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • As a techno producer you won’t earn much money due to selling tracks. It is important for me that people will take notice of me and will enjoy my music. Therefore track sales, sales charts (especially Beatport Charts) and promotion tracks are very helpful for making promotion and to get a wide reach.

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • My plan is to invest more time in music theory. Actually I am quite satisfied with my skills in arrangement and sounddesign, so it’s time to improve my skills in creating my own melodies.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

  • Thank you very much!

Interview with Kleber

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • Hi there, for me producing music is turning all my feelings and ideas into frequencies. I started my carrer in the music scene at 2000 ́s and what motivated me was my passion for music and when I met Techno it was love at first sight.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • I am always looking to improve myself and my releases help me to have a more organized view of my career and my personal life. I learned from my releases to be more detailed and plan everything calmly to get the best results.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • Yes, I do, whenever possible I collaborate. For me remixing is an art too, as it makes you step out of your comfort zone. Whenever I do a remix, I demonstrate my vision within my style. I like to remix and I also like to see my tracks in a new guise from another artist.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • All the titles of my songs are related to some feeling, I always try to express in the title what the song means to me to the listener. I think it’s super important to have a well-chosen title, in addition to drawing attention it’s always good to have a story behind each song.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • Without a doubt, design is very important. It shows professionalism.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • I always choose record companies that have a sound line similar to the one I produce. A good record company for me is one that does a good job of distributing and promoting their releases. And my expectations are to be able to always be collaborating with the labels I’ve been working with and believing, this way we managed to create a bond to grow together.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • In the globalized world of today that we live in, I see music consumption very high, promotion and distribution have become easier, but the means of consuming music has changed. Instead of downloads, the majority of the public is increasingly connectedto the Streaming platforms. So I see that illegal downloads, in addition to being something criminal that affects artists, record labels and everyone who is doing serious work where hours and months of work have been dedicated, I see that the illegal formof downloads has its days numbered for not there are more.

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • I’m always looking for something new to achieve my goals, that’s why I always try to improve my music to have a high-quality results.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

Miss ADK

Techno Vinyls Records ’ series of interviews, we talk to producers who have releases on our label.

Interview with Miss ADK (Rocio Bossio)

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • For me, production is a way to tell stories, to generate emotions and feelings. Both in me and in others. Take a bit out of my soul and give it to the universe. I started producing and playing at the same time, in 2006. What motivates me most is to try to handle the sound, feel that you can touch it and give it the shape you want.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • I work releases by batches. Each batch has specific sounds and a particular groove. I could classify each batch from my beginning until now. On a personal level, each batch brings back a memory and gave me a lesson.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • One of the best things you can do is to work with other artists. Throughout my career I have made various collabs and remixes. I learned a lot from those projects. I like to make remix for other artists and I like others to remix my tracks, is to give another point of view to the same sounds. I find it very interesting.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • I have two ways, I select the name when I’m creating it due the track feelings or I select the name when it’s finished. The second option is very useful to prepare whole releases and all the tracks follow the same idea, both in the sound and meaning. I think a good name gives an extra boost. I particularly like that everything has a meaning, that it is part of a system.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • Yes, it is important as long as everything follows the same concept. The concept is always the most important thing. Everything else has to conspire in favor of the concept.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • A few years ago I did some research on the music I was playing. I made a list of the labels I normally used and reviewed them. I contacted those who had an email available to send demos. After that I had a series of releases on various labels and from there I start working on request. I currently have in list some labels where I would like to release and for which I must prepare material accordingly.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • Well, where I come from, illegal downloads are more common than purchases. Our economy runs behind dollar and many times it becomes impossible to buy music. Therefore, I have a mailing list to give out promos for those who request it. In 14 years only four times I was paid for the sales of my music.

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • My plans are to continue generating and spreading the music we like. I have many ideas to put in place. Mainly create much more releases and working with other artists.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

  • Thank you very much for letting me be part of this amazing family.

Ron Impro

Techno Vinyls Records ’ series of interviews, we talk to producers who have releases on our label.

Interview with Ron Impro (Ronny Lemke)

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • For me, producing means switching off, letting my emotions run free and getting creative. But above all, for me it means doing what makes me happy. As soon as i sit in my little studio and turn on my speakers, i’m in a different world. For me there is not much that fulfills me more than sound design in the studio. I started making music almost 10 years ago. I actually got into music in a very clashy way. Listening to music on television and on the radio fascinated me to the electronic sounds of the 90s and not at least there was the club scene that caught me after the first parties. It was clear to me that I wanted to stand behind the decks and play my own tracks.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • My tracks are always produced in the here and now. I don’t let myself be inspired beforehand and go into the studio with the idea of producing a track now. I think the best tracks just come from the current situation and jamming. Of course, I’ve often had an idea in my head and said to myself I’m producing this track now, but that never worked and in the end it always came out differently than what the goal was. I think you can say my tracks are 100% what I currently have on me. But what you can say is that I definitely notice that I am getting harder and faster in my production over the years. Right now I’m at 140-145 BPM. I started with 120BPM 10 years ago.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • Yes, definitely! I like to remix tracks and give them a whole new structure. But also the other way around. I also like to hear what other DJs do with my music. That’s always very interesting for me because you can learn a lot in every remix. Nevertheless I think that I have to keep the balance between my own tracks and remixes. I’m currently doing a collab with NÜWA. But unfortunately I can’t say much more about that. But it’s going to be tough.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • Indeed, i find it very, very difficult with track titles.Until i have a final title, it changes 5 times before its the final result. For this reason I have already decided to give my tracks only german names. Which of course is also a recognition feature for me in the end.
    Still, guess if a track is good it doesn’t matter what the title is. In the end, the music is played and not the name.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • I don’t really care about the cover either. I’ve never complained about a cover before. Again, i can only say that the music is played and not the cover. But of course it’s the cover that you see when scrolling through Instagram, Spotify and co. So if you see a cool cover while scrolling through, you probably just stop and listen to it. But since the labels take over most of the poromotion, I think they are professionals and know exactly what they do when it comes to covers and so on. So I just rely on the labels’ feel for the right marketing.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • First of all, i just look at which label the music i’m currently produce is released on, and second, my current title has to fit with the label. If those two things are well, the label is a potential label for me. Then there are the labels that you as an artist would like to release on and where you therefore always send your music first and eventually reach your goal. At the moment I have found my home base and try as best I can to only release there. At this point a greeting to N.O.B.A. and NÜWA and their label “Ithica Records”.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • I could write an entire novel on this question just to be very specific. I think artists and labels have to become supporters and I hate illegally downloading music.
    If you just think about it that a track costs about 1E I think you should pay for it. There is so much work, feeling and emotion in such a track that the artist and the label
    should be rewarded for offering the community new content and keeping the scene alive.

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • I’m definitely working on an album right now that is going to take a while. I’ll be releasing single here and there for as long as I can. Furthermore, my goals are to release on my favorite label and of course to continue to work with Techno Vinyls Records. You’re doing a great job. keep it up. Vinyls have to be kept alive as long as possible.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

Puncher

Techno Vinyls Records ’ series of interviews, we talk to producers who have releases on our label.

Interview with Oleh Puncher

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • Making music is first and foremost a way for me to express myself! Share my emotions and possibly influence someone, charge with a positive or good mood!
    Production is also a process that is influenced by my perception of certain situations, a way to immerse myself in the world of new colors of sounds and emotions. Music has played an important role and has been with me since childhood. So when I had the opportunity in 2003 to learn to play music as a DJ, I certainly took advantage of it. Many thanks to my brother, DJ Smile (Vitaliy Korsun) for this chance! Subsequently, there were many parties of recorded mixes, radio shows … At one point it was not enough for me to just record mixes and I tried to understand the programs for writing music! In 2008 he started studying at the FL studio, later met Ableton Live and started writing music! This process dragged me on completely, I could sit at night and make new sounds.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • This is really a very interesting experience, which to some extent organizes and stimulates me. When you first start writing music, it’s very difficult to collaborate with interesting labels, you’re not interesting to labels. This is happening now, it is very difficult to get on the top labels (lately I’m not chasing it) there are many interesting labels with which it is very nice to work! But on the other hand, the refusals of some labels have encouraged me to do something new and not stop – it’s very important, don’t give up! Also, new releases are a new experience and with each release you gain more and more experience.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • This is a very interesting question. Of course, it is very interesting to work with other artists, it is a really cool experience and also immersion in the vision and sound of another artist, the opportunity to add something interesting, and very often it turns out that something very interesting comes out of it! The remixes are also very interesting, because in the release you can collect several versions of several ideas and sounds of an interesting basis of the track. And most listeners can find a version just for themselves, everyone’s musical tastes are very, very different, and that’s normal and wonderful.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • With this, everything is simple for me, I always try to connect the name of the track with the idea or sound of the track or the emotions that helped me write the track. I also think it’s important to name a track that at least partially opened the curtain and hinted at the filling of the track! Once my friend and I wrote a track and while writing we drank a lot of beer, so the track was called the name of beer.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • It’s not very important to me! Sometimes it happens when the wrapper is good and the candy is not tasty. It’s great when it’s harmonious, the cover corresponds to the track and everything is at the highest level, but the cover is not fundamental.
    It seems to me that the cover should have a more informative content.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • Definitely a good label is a label with a name! Big labels are of course a priority, but I’m not always in the pursuit of high-profile labels. There are labels that bribe with their material and I can’t pass by such labels and I will definitely be released on such labels!
    Also, of course, there are situations when mutual support works, when friends are ready to support my label with their work, and I will be happy to support my friends’ labels!

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • Oooo this is a very difficult and even painful question, especially at the moment. As 2020 proved to us, the music industry can be dependent, the situation with the coronavirus proved it to us! In such situations, I am ready to turn a blind eye to sales reports, I want the music to reach the listeners and for people to enjoy music as much as possible! In my country, unfortunately, illegal downloads are very prosperous, and more often on my tracks will earn people who have nothing at all before. I very much hope that this will soon be fought in my country!

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • There are a lot of plans, I want to write more tracks to find a bigger army of listeners, and to conquer even more countries and techno scenes! I want to learn even more techniques in writing music, I think that there is always room to develop and there is always something to learn! Music should be instead of words, convey emotions and charge people!

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

Rafael Bogdanov

Techno Vinyls Records ’ series of interviews, we talk to producers who have releases on our label.

Interview with Rafael Bogdanov

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • I played at a local club, and it just became not interesting to mix tracks over time. There were thoughts in my head, a desire to create something of my own, my own vision, to display my ideas, so that I could already play not only the tracks of other artists, but also acquaint people with my work. The first steps in writing music were in 2011. Then it was multiple sketches, experiments, studying, and it didn’t work out to create something specific. Then my image, my style to which I followed, displayed a minimalistic sound with elements of dark atmospheres.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • For me, the moments when after the date of my release I see how famous artists play my tracks were always a good impetus and motivator. Another desire to get publish my music on vinyl, which I already did thanks to TVR

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • Yes, of course, I love doing remixes. I like to bring my own look, my own tone of sound to the finished original. And it was also always interesting to listen to remixes of your own works.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • I can choose a name for my tracks for a long time. I don’t understand why this happens, sometimes the name suggests itself when creating a track. But in general, I think that the name does not really matter, because the most important content, the most important music, and the rest is not important.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • I think yes, of course, the appearance of the cover is very important, because many people first notice the cover and only later listen to the music.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • At first, I didn’t care about the importance of the label. There was a desire if only my music would be published. but later I began to understand that the more serious the label and the larger its audience, the better it will be for me to release my music on such a label.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • Unfortunately, music piracy greatly affects the proper development of many labels and artists. All people have different values and views. Someone is ready to spend $ 2 for a cup of good coffee but not ready to give the same amount for their favorite music. This is the reality. But now it seems like access to music has become easier, but for many it doesn’t matter, but we struggle to live this way

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • The production of my music has slowed down lately. Since not so long ago I became a father. And it is not always possible to allocate the proper time. But the plans are still the same, to finally record your own album, to release more releases on vinyl.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

Interview with Kilany M

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • Music production is something that i was lookin for since my childhood, im addicted to music as listener in diffrents style and always want to explore the world of industry music.
    and in the beginnig as a listener i was a fan of trance music and touched by many legends as rank 1, paul van dyk, Paul oakenfold, tiesto… and it’s hard for me as a child to get money and collecte records CDs, K7, so, after years in 2006 – 2007 i started learning Djing by using virtual Dj, cause it’s hard to buy tuntables or mixeur cause it cost and the family can’t even give me money to buy and in 2009, i discovered the first DAW that i actually use it (Fl Studio) by a friend at school, and i started using it with no experience and over the time i started understanding how i can makes drums and melody by using plugins and more futures…so i began with trance music creating some tracks the way i can. In 2012, i meet some producers from my city and that’s helps me to learn more from them, and with time and hard work, i get where im today and still much to learn yet.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • Sure, and that’s by the love that i get from the peoples through feedbacks and the great support, and seeing my tracks crossing the world which is born in my humble home studio, and makes me work so hard and spending more time in the studio to make my best and attract more listeners and try to makes variety in my music from melodic techno to hard techno, and sure see my music played and supported by great artists as John digweed, armen miran, Oostil… and that’s enough to give inspiration for doing more.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • Of course, i like to collaborate with other artists, it gives me more experience and even learning from them as they learning from me as well to get the sweet harmony of our ideas!
    and about the remixes, for me as a competition to makes better than the original and sure i accept to make it if i feel my self able to add to the original idea!
    As i like my music being remixed by other artists to see my idea developed in other way.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters ?

  • Choosing name of my tracks, sometimes, tooking the name of the places where i got the inspiration, or from the melody that i create! for exmple, i listened to it and imagine what this melody can describe in one word! And of course titles of EP or track can makes the tracks more attractive “sometimes” to the listeners to push the play while they see it.

Is a well-designed cover important to you ?

  • Cover of the ep or tracks is important for me too, as i see many labels makes bad covers maybe they don’t thinking about it seriously, cause it can gives also attraction as the title can do.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations) ?

  • I choose a labels after looking for their contents, music quality and of course the style that fit to my work, and like many times i got request to release music from the label it selfs.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.) ?

  • For the sales, i really didn’t give attention, cause i makes music as i said before for sharing it with peoples and to get great feedbacks and support, but we can’t skip this totally cause from your sales u can be shown for more audience. Promotion tracks is great too it can gives you more attention even not with big artists at least it gives you the chance to be supported by artists you even don’t know, and the illegal downloads is the big mistakes that really reduce the chance of salling!

What are your future plans for making tracks ?

  • For now, nothing special but im looking for investing more in setup for my studio and looking forward for more attention in 2021.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

Silent Souls

Interview with Silent Souls S / S (Ivan Bagnoli)

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?

  • For Us Producing Our Own Music Is The Perfect Change To Create The Proper Atmosphere During Our Set, From Intro To Closing Track. Me (Ivan), Personally I Started My DJ Career When I Was 14, And Often I Spent My AfterNoons After The School Helping My Uncle In His Record Shop Before And Then Audio Service. About Linda (Second Half Of SILENT SOULS), She Enjoyed The Project When We Get Married. The Combining Of Our Two Personalities Was Perfect To Make Possible “SILENT SOULS” Project Born.

How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?

  • As I Said Our Releases, Even Under Different Alias, Were Foundamental To Understand The Approach On Our Sets, And Dancefloor Reposonse.
    After Some Previous Project, Silent Souls, Just Fit Perfect For Us And Our Music.

Do you like to collaborate with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like to remix or do you like to have your music remixed?

  • In The Past Years I Did Several Remixes, And Our Remixed Tracks Too. But With The New Project We Changed Completely Our Mind. Now We Absolutely Prefere Too Be 100% Focused On Our Own Music.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?

  • The Titles Oo Our Tracks Always Depens From The Album Or EP Title, And Also From The Artwork.

Is a well-designed cover important to you?

  • I Believe That The Cover Should Be Designed By The Artist, But Often This Is Not Possible.
    Then Could Be Well-Designed Or Not, Could Be A Picture Or Whatever The Artist Like, But Always In Agrement With Label Management.

How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • We Like The Labels That Take Their Time To Listen To The Artist Work, Without Accepting Any Kind Of Music They Receive Just To Make Sales. At The Moment We Are Really Focused On Our Own Label Scarlet Carson Black. Techno Vinyls Records Was Our First Vinyl Release And Let Me Say One Of Our Best. After Two Years Our Intro Track “THIRD VISION” Is Still Aamazing Aand We Play It At All Our Gigs. I Can Say Is Our Tradamark, And When People Listen To It They Say “Silent Souls Are On Stage”.

How do you see track sales in the digital millennium data flood (for example: how do you see the digital sales, promotion tracks, illegal downloads etc.)?

  • I Think Digital Sales Are Not Anymore Under Control. For Example We Stoped To Use Beatport, That’s Because Every Day I Dindt Know How Many Tracks Are Releasing, Maybe Thousands. You Get Lost, And The Track Released Today, Tomorrow Will Be Old.
    To Listen And Buy Music We Like A Lot Bandcamp, Like This We Go Straight To Listen Our Favorite Labels And Artists And We Contribute To Help Small Reaities.
    About Promotion, I’m Agree If Its Focused And Untill It Became Spam.
    It Does Not Make Sense To Send Techno Promos To House DJ’s Or Viceversa.

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • Future Plan For 2021 Is To Arrange A New Vinyl Release On Our Lable Scarlet Carson Black.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!

Daytona Team

Techno Vinyls Records ’ series of interviews, we talk to producers who have releases on our label.

Interview with Daytona Team (Juan Jose Carrasco Lopez)

What does producing mean to you? When did you start your musical career and what motivated you?

  • The madness began casually in one night in 1995 with Juanjo Daytona with in Barcelona. There, in a visit to the old Apolo hall (Current Nitsa) he discovered what techno was and without going unnoticed by him, he decided to take the path to bring it to Murcia. Influenced to a great extent by the Detroit sound. From very early on he had a clear idea of who his references were and what he wanted to do with his friends. In 1998 they got together to form a band. Juanjo Daytona, GoTXa, Jesús aka Resset 05 and a singer from Mozambique, Roger, began to discover their first references and with it to buy their first machines, which gave rise to his group Daytona Team.

How have your launches inspired you throughout your career?

  • For 10 years we were going through different festival stages and it was then when with the first album “Hey you mother fu**ker” in 2009 the opportunity arose to take the Mona Records label that has been gaining more and more followers within our country. But this label has never wanted to limit itself nor put frontiers to its music, proof of this is the acceptance of the platform at a worldwide level, having as an example its presence in international events such as the Fusion Festival in Germany, Festa della Musica in Milan or Free Field Festival in Rome.

Do you like collaborating with other artists? What do you think about remixing? Do you like remixing or do you like your music to be remixed?

  • The truth is that I like more to be remixed, but I also enjoy doing versions of other artists who ask me to do a remix for them, it all depends on how inspired I am and if I like the remix track very much. I have worked making remixes for Cj Bolland, Shin Nishimura, Tomo Hachiga, or Dave Angel among some famous artists, and I have been remixed by people like Dave Tarrida, Christian Haro, Javier Orduña or Denite.

How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well chosen track and EP title is important?

  • If i think titles are very important, they make people remember the song and remember it for a lifetime. We always like to put a bit of humour in the titles or make some word games, a bit imitating and following Alex Under’s trend who was the first in Spain to do that.

Is a well designed case important to you?

  • For me it is very important the design of each album, the cover is the image of the artist, and in that some labels, do not ask what you like simply make a cover without investigating much beyond the artist. They should look at it! We have always been quite transgressive, and a little bit politically incorrect.

How do you choose the labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?

  • For me a label is one that cares about its artists, and has a personal relationship with them, and continues to make the relationship stronger, and from there come out better things and new work. It is very important that there is communication!

How do you see the follow-up sales in the avalanche of data from the digital millennium (for example: how do you see digital sales, promotional tracks, illegal downloads, etc.)?

  • I think it’s all crazy and we don’t really have much information about sales or downloads, or how much you earn, but surely behind all this there are people who are getting rich. Beatport , Spotify move millions of euros, and give very little to artists.

What are your future plans for making tracks?

  • To improve as a musician and to continue developing and investigating, lately I have been investigating about concrete music and the first references of electronic music in 1950. I also research Spanish producers and musicians of the 20th century who started to develop new music and performances.

Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your work as a producer!

  • Thanks to you for your interest in me. Long live Techno Vinyls Records
