Techno Vinyls Records ’ series of interviews, we talk to producers who have releases on our label.
Interview with No One Name (Diego Aragón)
What does producing mean to you? When did you start your music career and what motivated you?
- Producing means for me the art of knowing how to express and transmit feelings, sensations and states of mind to others through all kinds of sounds and rhythms. I started my music career since mid 2000s motivated by the music of great artists like John Digweed & Sasha.
How have your releases inspired you throughout your career?
- Well, each release is very different from the other, I try to take a lot of inspiration from break beat or melodic house tracks by putting my particular sound on it, as I am also influencing myself on songs with 80s sound that is how I am getting inspired in each release I do.
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 like collaborate with other artists, now im cooking some tracks with a some special friends. I love remixing, is very special for me couse you recreates and put your sound on the original song and the most important you can do more friends around the world. I like Both!!!
How do you choose a title for your tracks? Do you think a well-chosen track and EP title matters?
- Well, I have always chosen it based on what I am living at that time, as well as some are inspired by the name of my daughter named ŇMoonÓ. I think that depends on each artist and how they are inspired at that time.
Is a well-designed cover important to you?
- A cover art creates the first impression. Therefore, a cover art design is one of the important aspects of the release. If the cover is not designed well, you will loose importance for the producer and public (I think). …
How do you choose record labels (what is a good label for you and what are your expectations)?
- Well, I am always looking for new labels that can give me a sound that is different or similar to mine, in this case i am now focused on German labels as they have a very avant-garde sound. There are many record labels that stand out at the moment such as Innervisions, Pampa Records, Kompakt, Keinemusik, etc. and I would like to be an artist for one of them.
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 to be honest there are some record labels that don’t send you the sales report on time and that’s a bit annoying, I think they should be a little more attentive to the artist with the report. In my case, most of them send to me every 15 days or 30 days. I see the promo tracks such as the feedbacks that most artists give through vip ultima, Inlfyte, soundcloud private etc. Piracy itself also existed before, because when I was more younger i copied songs from the radio onto a cassettes, piracy is no problem for me cause is a way to reach a wider audience.
What are your future plans for making tracks?
- Learning a new style or genre, or explore improvisation.
Thank you for accepting our interview request, we wish you much more success in your producer work!
- Thank you very much for the interview and for letting me be part of the techno vinyls records artists staff.
