INTERVIEW WITH INXEC
The reason why we can catch Inxec for an interview was the Zoo:Technique Showcase on Viva la Electronica. He just released with Mark Jenkyns on Leftroom his new imprint, which is yet again a freaky bit of inventive late night Techno and get remis from master of the night Konrad Black and Canadian Hrdvsion.
Hello Inxec thanks for talking to us. Now it’s March , how do you reflect back on 2013? What lessons do you take into the new year and did you had a very special moment you still remember?
Last year was great, plenty of parties! As always the culprit show at the standard hotel in downtown LA was a blast!! I played with droog and Tone of Arc, good fun indeed. I think I learnt last year that I need to spend more time on solo projects which will be my focus for the early part of this year for sure!!
What does 2014 hold for you and your musical pursuits? Are there any big plans or is it business as usual?
Much more solo work can be expected in the early part of this year, things kick in April, but expect a few more colabs along the line. But yeah pretty much business as usual.
Since when are you involved in electronic music and when was the point of breakthrough which let you become professional?
I got into making music almost 15 years ago, just as a mess about. But things got serious maybe 6-7 years ago, i quite my job and dived head first and completely into music. It really just came about that I enjoyed it so much and could make a living doing it. I think it’s hard to succeed without being completely engrossed, you need to make music or Dj to pay bills.
What’s your favorite producing tool and do you also use hardware for your productions?
I use Ableton Live and a a bunch of VST’s. If the chance to use hardware arises il snap at the chance, but it’s mainly soft synths.
Do current, contemporary sounds and styles influence you in the studio? Or would you describe it as a timeless working environment?
Sure, any kind of music gives us a ‘feeling’ or emotion. I take influence from anything or anyone. I think every melody and structure has been written, and so we just reinvent ideas. It’s still incredibly exciting for me and I love to take a classic piece of music and try and retro fit it into something of my own.
How do you spend your time between your gigs when you Travel?
Seeing as much as I can, as long as there’s a bar to end up at. 😉
Do you have a particular gig in the winter/spring season you are looking forward to?
I’m off to Australia in May so I suppose it’s winter there.
What’s your favorite tune from the last months you constantly play in your DJ sets?
