Shaman Records presents:
Could you please tell us how you passion for this kind of music was born?
Even though we didn’t know each other at that time, our stories are quite similar. We both started listening to electronic music when we started going to clubs, that was during the 2000s. Back then there was a local radioshow called BigCityBeats which played dancy house music. Earlier we mainly listened to rock music, but the vibe of BigCityBeats matched our new clubbing-lifestyles. What started with house music turned in to techno throughout the years.
There are any artists you take inspiration from? Do you remember the moment when you realised you wanted to become a dj?
There are many great artists that had a great impact on the sound of techno and electronic music in the past years and that are still inspiring us. Few people are as professional and innovative as Enrico Sangiuliano when it comes to producing techno music. His sounds are always on point.
Each of us had his first steps into DJing on his own, wanting to show our friends our favourite tracks. When we got to know each other we realised that we both didn't only want to share our favorite tracks - we wanted do make our own favorite tracks and bring our own music on the floor. That's when we started producing together.
What are your future projects? Do you have any scheduled releases?
We clearly put our focus on music production and creating techno tracks which make people dance. We want to improve our skills, test out new tools and make progress.
We just had a nice EP on RIOT recordings. For february we have an upcoming release on ICONYC - we are really excited and can't wait for this one! Some other releases are planned as well, stay tuned.
Can you recommend us some artists that you really like now a days?
We discussed a lot about this question. Nowadays there are so many talented producers, we are not able to pick only a few - sorry, we can't make a choice :)
What would you say to young artist that wants to be part of this world? What would your advice be?
It is important not to want it all in the beginning. Take your time to learn and progress and don't forget to have fun.
Could you give to our readers some advices concerning production?
Start as simple as possible - there are so many options to chose from when it comes to plugins, sample packs ... It is better to pick only one synthesizer and use it from bassline to lead synth. That helps to keep your focus and to get creative. Also it may help to listen to your favourite tracks and take them as a guide for your own production. Last but not least: It is important to finish tracks to make progress and to be able to start new projects
