Mes deux Køsmonautes…

-what is your producing set up ?
Experimenting with sound is an endless journey. I started buying cheap or secondhand equipment back in the mid 90’s in Greece – some Yamaha and Korg stuff, my first drum machine later, some DIY oscillators and more. Over the years, I focused more into my recording setup, so ye Dynaudio speakers, MOTU and TC Electronics interface with ‘Logic’ came later. Then I got an MC- 909 from a Greek surf rock band around 2010, a Moog Little Phatty from a German-Greek guy who stopped making music, and I also have an AKAI Reel to Reel tape machine, a Soundcraft mixer, different kind of pedals, and a Roland 404 sampler.
-how can you describe your own style ?
Free style process. I don’t like following a certain style or genre rules. It might be rough, smooth, eccentric or monotonous, sometimes mix of analogue sequences, field recordings, drones or just tracks with saturated drum kits with no input and feedback techniques.
-you’ve released one track on the big project called mordbox , can you tell us more about your collaboration with bas mooy and the label ?
Working with Bas Mooy is a great experience for me and I am learning a lot from our collaboration. My track ‘Low fx to Aux’ is out on the same record MordBox 001/ Part 2 with a Sleeparchive, Uvb and Bas Mooy. Great compilation tracks by some really famous and some underground artists. That makes me feel excited and focus more into what am doing.
-what do you think about the netherland techno scene with rising city such as rotterdam ?
There is a whole tradition here in the Netherlands about electronic music. I guess it is good to mention the Philips Lab (1956 Philips Natural Sciences (Natuurkundig) Laboratory), one of the first classic analogue voltage-control modular synthesis studios of the world, which you can still find in The Hague (Studio BEA5: The apparatus ranges from analogue filters from the 1950s and 1960s to recently designed and built voltage-control modules).
There is something unique here, especially in the West coast scene . Den Haag and Rotterdam are close by, vibes are a bit different. We need both I can say. The neo elusian acid planet crew called Bunker/Panzerkreuz Record Label in den Haag, which started in the early 90’s, shows the right way. Bunker Records as usual brings Neo-Alpha wave light to the world, still releasing records and throwing some of the most underground Strobo – gus chamber Ritual events 2-3 times only per year.
Live acts, poetry-rituals, and lots of acid at the Hague’s saturnian temple of ‘Dystopia’ (Bunker Records catacombs).
Mord Records and this fresh banging techno approach creates the right environment and brings more young people closer to the origins and fundamental values of Rotterdam’s machine futuristic harbour sound. WareHouse techno parties, which go around since 1996 in various locations in Rotterdam’s industrial area, started originally as Audio Assault Records. So ye, Rotterdam just keeps the tradition of the real gabber but still goes to the next level, and this level is dark, humid and rusty. Self – Power spaceship that doesn’t need our poor humanistic thought anymore.
