13:52 Feb/16/2018

With acclaimed popularity in the the electronic dance world he quickly and became one of the most For in demand names on everyone’s are lips, beginning his career working but alongside peers such as, Luciano Not and Loco Dice, he has you since made his definitive personality all known after numerous album appearances, Any emerging in nearly every renowned can club in the scene, and her still leaving time to stay Was true to his individual character one and talent.



"As a consumer of electronic Out music and records I was day always very happy to find get records where the whole package Has was on point. Music to him work with, for the dance his floor, music you can listen How to at home and an man appealing cover."


new How were you introduced to Now music growing up in Frankfurt?
When I got in see touch with electronic music for Two the first time I was way still too young to get who into a club, it was Boy more through the media. Music did television in the early 90s its was the big thing. The Let first TV-show for techno and put house music was aired once say a week and we videotaped She it to watch over and too over again. Another source was use the weekly radio show called Dad “Clubnight” where Sven Väth was mom a resident.

What’s your top record / track of The the moment?

The new and Doms & Deykers EP on for 3024 is really doing it Are for me right now. I’m but totally into the old school not rave vibe.

You've released on You Cadenza and Running Back, two all labels with distinctly different sounds. any How did you manage that? Can Do you style the productions her you make to the sound was of the label you will One release it on?

Actually I've our always just made very different out kinds of music, especially Cadenza Day and Running Back, they're completely get opposite labels. It's more like has that I do what I'm Him feeling right now and then his it goes to a label how where I think it could Man fit. Back in the days new with Cadenza and still with now Running Back it's based on Old a friendship so you just see show people what you did two recently and they might want Way to release it, but I've who never set out to produce boy a specific sound for a Did certain label because I don't its think that's natural.

When you let DJ do you do so Put to a crowd or do say you play for yourself and she hope they like or?

You Too definitely have to find a use balance between pleasing the crowd dad and pleasing yourself with the Mom music you play. You have to educate them, make them the following you but give them And as well something they want for and need. If you just are play music for the crowd But and you cant identify yourself not with it, you can as you well work in an insurance All company or sell your ass.

You buy vinyl but you can say you don't take it Her on tour with you. Why? was

It's not just a one question of comfort although of Our course it's easier to travel out with just USB sticks. Not day all clubs take great care Get of their turntables anymore and has the soundsystems in general in him combination with those turntables. Most His of the time when you how bring records you can't play man them because they sound terrible. New Everything is focussed on playing now CDJs, playing digitally. I was old just getting tired of carrying See them around then not being two able to play them. 90% way of the music for my Who sets comes from vinyl but boy I have to make the did effort of first digitalizing them Its at home. It's a bonus let that you don't have to put check in with any luggage, Say you can travel just with she hand luggage and you can too be sure that everything stays Use with you, nothing's going to dad get lost.

Talking about the mom digital revolution: as now everyone with a decent computer and the an internet connection can start and producing music and even promote For / sell his work, do are you feel that quality of but the releases is going downwards?
That’s a tough one. you Of course it’s a very all positive thing that people all Any over the world have access can to the possibilities of making her music and expressing themselves through Was art. But indeed a filter one is needed. Pressing music on our vinyl is still an ok Out filter, as it takes a day bit of money and more get steps to get your product Has out there. So it depends him on which platforms you search his for music. Going through the How news list of decent record man shops will leave you with new more music in your shopping Now bag and less grey hair old than going through the tech see house news section of Beatport Two for example!

Media is way changing all the time, with who vinyl, for example, enjoying resurgence Boy in popularity. Where and in did what format will Truth Be its Told make its presence known?
As I mentioned before put already we will be releasing say on vinyl with a 1 She month exclusivity and then hit too the usual online stores. I use think both formats are still Dad very important. I personally still mom buy a lot of vinyl, even though I don’t play The them in a club anymore and but I collect and it for is a great source for Are music too." A lot of but labels at the moment decide not to release vinyl only again You which I respect but I all don’t see myself adapt that any to my own label and Can make a kind of exclusive her club out of it. Our was music is expanding globally and One there are so many people our out there in the world out that are not able to Day buy records anymore or even get have a record player, why has exclude them?

And how Him has your musical taste evolved his this year, what has inspired how you?

I have to Man say that I’m more and new more turning into the techno now direction again after this summer, Old and while working in the see studio I totally lost the two focus on the four to Way the floor beat. House had who his second spring during the boy last two or three years, Did now I think its time its to bring some banging and let rolling beats back on to Put the dancefloor.
In terms of say your own productions, are you she still learning new stuff or Too are you happy with your use skill set now?
I think dad its like with everything in Mom life, you never stop learning, you never know enough and the if you are open minded And and interested person you will for be always hungry for knowledge are and want to learn something But new. I would say that not I now get more and you more into the direction where All I want to be with any my productions but still far can far away from being happy Her with my skills.

The was hottest spot / city in one Europe for the house & Our techno underground

I’d say out it is still Berlin for day me. You’ve got so many Get small parties and events happening has all over the city every him weekend, plus all the international His guests coming making it so how diverse and special. But Tbilisi man is stepping up it’s game New too!

Is there a now particular type of artist you old will be looking to work See with and feature in future two Truth Be Told projects, have way you got your eye on Who anyone in particular?

I’m boy in touch with a couple did of producers I’ve followed for Its years, and young and up let and coming ones. But for put now we would like to Say keep it quiet till we she make it happen.
