Interview:

  • Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?

– Namedropping: Prince, Roy Hargrove, Siriusmo, Todd Terje, Nick Höppner, Bobby Sparks, Vulfpeck, Pink Floyd, Brecker Brothers, Kendrick Lamar and many others…

  • What is one track that got popular that you can’t stand?

Im very sorry to say this, but I truly hate „Summer of 69“ with my whole heart! Play this song and we wont be friends. Ever!… Same goes for „Changes“ by the Scorpions, fucking hate it! And mumble rap from acts like Lil Xen and some (not all!) austrian trap acts is just a terrible mystery to me.  But Jokes aside! I actually like all kind of music and love that fact how much joy it can ring to anybody, regardless of what they like to listen to and what moves them.

  • How did you come to electronic music and what’s your favourite own track?

I startet playing the piano when I was five and spent my first 15 years playing mainly classical music and jazz. Electronic music came pretty late to me. I was maybe 23 or 24, when i started doing some sort of piano house live act, that evolved around dancefloors. Since then i got sucked in by the fascination of dance music and the creative freedom it gives you.  My own favorite track? Hm, …probably Zenyata. Released on Feines Tier.

  • If you could eternally be stuck in one year’s music scene, which year would it be?

Got to say 76 or 77. I really love classic rock. Bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple are mind-blowing to me. Would have loved to play as an organ player like John Lord (R.I.P. my hero!) in a band like this!

  • Are you able to share any of your secret tricks with me?+

I know this one really amazing trick. It works like magic. Its called practice and rehearsing. You wont believe whats it gonna do to you if you do it. Amazing!

  • What things not to miss on your DJ gigs (except your DJ gear)

My face! I do the weirdest faces when i play.

  • What is something that bugs you about the DJ scene?

Its bugs me, that a lot of my colleagues put way more effort into their marking skills then their artistic output and actually have more success that way. But I guess just how the world works.

LUM063 Waal – Africa EP

On remix duty, Beatamines, who already released on great labels like Einmusika and Katermukke, remixes the main and one track ‘Waal – Africa‘ adding weight and more dynamic pattern to the beat. Progressive House master Waal put his own touch on ‘Africa’ by creating a impulsive version of the track.

INTERVIEW:

  • How did it all start for you?

 I guess it all started some 20 years ago, was working in a bar in London, and after work, i usually put on some led zeppelin or the likes, when a co worker suddenly one night said, you have to listen to this….it was Leftfield, and my first introduction to electronic music, i was HOOKED, and after i returned to denmark some time after, i started digging house music, and especially timewriter, then I got into trancemusic, and started Dj’ing, became A&R manager on Creamcrop Records, and started playing all over the globe, in homemade bellbottom pants, ponytail and psychedelic shirts(im hopeful i collected all images of me from that time, and put them in a vault, so they cant use them against me, when i become primeminister of Denmark [Symbol]), slowly though, i started to listen more progressive, then even slower beats, deep house etc, so, I have been through a whole lot of types of music, before I finally kind of found my true sound. 

 

  • Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?

 Heaps of artist through the years, maybe too many to single out a few, always drew inspiration from people i met, and acts/artist which music I liked, the respect is the same, I do wanna say i respect the younger generation a lot these days in cph, they carry on the scene with a great energy and passion, that only the youth is able to. 

 

  • Are you able to share any of your secret tricks with me?

 Well, practice…practice…practise, its really that simple, know your music, and i have actually in the recent years started to use programs like mixed in key, to get a better understanding of the keys & harmonics of the tracks i play, and i think it really has improved the feeling of my sets. 

 

  • What is one mistake you see a lot of up and coming DJs making? / What advice would you give to aspiring DJs?

 It’s the same thing as many years ago, but in the mediahyped times we live in, i feel its getting amplified a lot, im talking about the pressure for young and up and coming DJ’s to perform, and the temptation to succumb to playing what you think the people want to hear, the feeling that you HAVE to pump the floor 30 minutes after the party starts, i see this over and over, people who because of pressure, aren’t 100% true to themselves regarding their music. 

I mean, its ok to adapt a little to a club, a city or even a country’s style, as long as you in the end make them dance to your own beat. 

 

  • If you could eternally be stuck in one year’s music scene, which year would it be? 

 The year before EDM was invented….no, jokes aside, that is impossible for me answer, the last couple of years have had some incredible new music, styles and production, that i really felt was the stuff i had been looking for my whole life, but i also miss the innocence of the old days, before smartphones and social media……i simply cant be more specific here. 

 

  • What is it that you love about the scene? Your subgenre’s scene?

 The underground, and that it still thrives and is heavily supported in these days, where bookers rule, and the cost for a popular act easy can reach 10000 Euro.  

 

  • What is something that bugs you about the DJ scene?

 The opposite of the above, the extreme fares of popular acts, I mean, of course good artists need good pay, but some places its getting ridiculous, and its putting a lot of pressure on organisers. And of course the extreme SoMe culture that has emerged in the scene is also getting a little out of hand, some people can manage it, use it in a cool and artistic way, but there are also trainwrecks. 

  

  • What is one track that got popular that you can’t stand?

 Hmm, none really comes to mind, kind of boring answer, but nothing pops up.

INTERVIEW


  • Hello… are you doing well? What are your plans for this month?

This month I am going to concentrate on what is important like my work and my musical interests. Nevertheless I have a lot of free time to practice mixing and producing at home after work so I am quite good at the moment.


  • How did you come to electronic music and what’s your favourite own track?

In my earlier years I used to listen to rap, hiphop and trap.
at the age of 17 I started to discover the wollt of electronic music and lost the interest in the new school hip hop because of the violent texts and the image it represented, I was looking for peaceful and beautiful music.
In summer 2017 my cousin showed me a live act from victor ruiz and i immediately fell in love with the electronic scene. I started djing in 2018, but i haven’t started producing yet but this year i will make my first steps into the production ‘milieu’ .


  • What are you doing beside the music in your life?

I live for the music , that’s why most of the time i’m occupied with it. Besides I like to spent sometime doing work out and I’am a trained gardener.
And of course I enjoy hanging out with my friends to spend some quality time with them.


  • What things not to miss on your DJ gigs (except your DJ gear)

Self-confidence, chill, fun and a fire mood .
And I always wear a handsome shirt .

LUM058 Packo Gualandris – Completly Dangerous EP

LUM058 Packo Gualandris – Completly Dangerous EP

Next up on the on fire Lauter Unfug is a production from the very talented producer from Luxembourg “Packo Gualandris”. Packo has long been turning out killer underground tunes on his own ok as well as many others. He counts many Artists as fans who play his tunes, while

this Luxembourgish lion has more than a decade’s experience of laying down essential grooves from a wide range of labels. Completely Dangerous is his EP and is ten tantalising minutes of house music with magical melodies. They hang in the air above the drums and bring raw colour and spine tingling emotions to the slick groove. Textured chords add to the overall effect and it’s easy to see this one really make an impact in the club. The rework is more angsty and driven, upping the tempo and speeding up the arpeggios so that the whole thing has urgency.
2 absolutely floorshaking Remixes from Lily Pita and Betoko, this EP is a perfect way to end the year for Lauter Unfug.
