Explore South America with Vera Brothers 09.07.2019 by Ahulijing   1 Earlier in February during the discussion of a new part of podcast, we have talk with Vera Brothers about music and future plans W: Tell us about you, gyus. How did your relationships with music start? You both were interested in this process?VB: We started to get involved into music thanks to my older sister, she had posters of bands and lots of cds… That was like 15 years ago, then we started to have this fun musical trade-off with our friends. During that time our style was more like rock, reggae, hip-hop and other stuff, we always were fans of our local bands in Paraguay.In 2012/13 we started to go to house parties.. At that point in time we didnt have any idea of what a being a dj truly meant. F.D.M was our first experience in electronic music club and we loved it. We assisted pretty much every time we could, to dance and to listen to good music, then we went on meeting more people inside the scene, going to more parties. After a while we started being PR on some of the cycles here, and we got more interested into the vibe. At some point that we started taking music production and mixing classes, and yes we both were interested in it because we are twins and everything we do, we do together haha. W: What about your local scene?VB: Here we have parties, a lot of promoters, some electronic music festivals, a warm crowd, but no so big… Constantly growing and evolving every time.If we start talking about our local scene we can not fail to mention to Sequence Club, we both feel identified with that place, it was like our home, they were the first to open the doors for us, we were residents of Sequence Garden… Personally that was the best thing that happened in town. Once we got in there, our musical taste started changing drastically, we met artists that became good friends with us and they influence a lot in what we are and what we are doing right now, helping us to improve as artists.We think that in our scene, people need to start appreciating more the local artists… And honestly, abroad too. Also being honest, we have pretty good artists to enjoy in Paraguay and South America in general! W: As to the music genres – you said that you start with hip-hop/beats and then found house music. Can you distinguish some genre among others?VB: We knew hip hop basically forever… It was the first genre that we squeezed a lot. We started playing music like reggae, funk, hip hop and some house, we also have a good variety of music collection and we aswell love to taste different new music, like flamengo, jazz, and every thing in between.. We now believe that the sounds that we like the most are house, techno and breaks, groovy acid basslines and powerful chords. Photo 1 Photo 2 Photo 3 Photo 1   Photo 2 Photo 3 W: Top tracks for you now / which reflect your mood at the present momentVB: We expose here music of different styles that we believe mark our roots 1 Groundation – Music is The Most High.This piece of reggaedub we play whenever we can, the instrumental is so good, and what it make you feel too…changing tempos and a big bassline, this track is an answer to the question of why we play music 2 Los delinquentes – El aire de la calleThis is kind of a flamenco underground, this band has teach us a lot about rythm and passion, the lyrics are very good aswell. 3 LPZ – 1983 Here’s a very special house track for us, this was made by our friends of LPZ. This track is like a time machine, it make us remember the good old times.. 4 Orishas – A lo cubanoAnd of couse we can’t forget about hip hop, this is the kind of music that we hear back in the days of school W: Any plans for 2019?VB: Keep doing music, continue the things that we are doing in town right now… We have a residency in Cafe Salazar, if you guys ever come to Asuncion you have to come to this place! we would love to travel to share our music too, do what we like to do, meet people and create more connections abroad! We’d like to think that we have interesting things to offer.Thank you Welofi, Keep the good work and music! And the last one, weloficast part 78 *    *

W: Top tracks for you now / which reflect your mood at the present moment

VB: We expose here music of different styles that we believe mark our roots

1 Groundation – Music is The Most High.

This piece of reggaedub we play whenever we can, the instrumental is so good, and what it make you feel too…changing tempos and a big bassline, this track is an answer to the question of why we play music

2 Los delinquentes – El aire de la calle

This is kind of a flamenco underground, this band has teach us a lot about rythm and passion, the lyrics are very good aswell.

3 LPZ – 1983
 

Here’s a very special house track for us, this was made by our friends of LPZ. This track is like a time machine, it make us remember the good old times..

4 Orishas – A lo cubano

And of couse we can’t forget about hip hop, this is the kind of music that we hear back in the days of school

W: Any plans for 2019?

VB: Keep doing music, continue the things that we are doing in town right now… We have a residency in Cafe Salazar, if you guys ever come to Asuncion you have to come to this place! we would love to travel to share our music too, do what we like to do, meet people and create more connections abroad!

welofi x SAINTPVBLO //short interview     W: Расскажи про себя – чем живешь, чем вдохновляешься? S: Меня зовут Pvblo. Живу в Киеве. Живу двумя вещами в своей жизни: музыка + дизайн. Это две мои вселенные, через призму которых я хочу общаться с миром, дарить людям новый опыт и совершенствоваться для получения новых знаний в разных сферах искусства и не только. В двух словах: я занимаюсь музыкой и являюсь одним из создателей и креативным директором бренда одежды TRÜFFLÉ™. Если озвучить чем я вдохновляюсь безостановочно каждый день, то это будет эстетика воплощения идей в реальность: то есть то, как люди прошлого, а также современные креативные люди, передают свое видение в своих работах. Меня захватывает когда я начинаю глубоко нырять в свое сознание, изучая произведения искусства, архитектуру, дизайн, музыку, людей которые это все создают – это позволяет создавать мне новые паттерны в голове и добавляет новых идей для моей деятельности. 1 2 1 2 W: Когда и как началась твоя история с музыкой? S: Это, как обычно, формируется в детстве. Начиная с трехлетнего возраста, я очень часто ездил с отцом на дальние расстояния на автомобиле, и у него было очень много кассет с разнообразной и очень крутой музыкой. На подсознательном уровне это очень записалось — я имею в виду именно фильтр, когда ты понимаешь что такое действительно крутой музыкальный вкус. В доме, на кухне, 24/7 всегда работало радио, на ночь его громкость уменьшали, но все же оно всегда играло. Это были какие-то советские композиции и “подкасты”.         Но если говорить об осознанном увлечении, то оно началось в 2006-2007 годах. Интернета у меня тогда еще не было, было только спутниковое телевидение. Когда я увидел что есть такие каналы как MTV и VH1 – это была удивительная находка. Каждое утро, одеваясь в школу, я включал очень громко эти каналы, параллельно смотря видеоряд, собирался на учебу (само собой после просмотра Симпсонов, которые не пропускал ни одного утра). Услышав и увидев первый раз Kanye West’а (наверное, это был клип на песню Stronger), я ждал каждый день чтобы еще и еще раз услышать эту композицию. Kanye West был началом моего фильтра уникальности для всей моей будущей жизни. Я за пару секунд осознал, увидев эту персону и услышав его исполнение, что это будет бесконечно уникальное развитие артиста, и он добьется в своем деле того, чего до него не добивался еще никто. Влияние его как творческой личности, на мое развитие в дальнейшем, было огромнейшим. Оно продолжается и сейчас, может, уже в меньшей степени, так как появляются очень много достойных личностей, мировозрение которых мне импонирует и влияет на меня тоже. 1 1         Увлечение электронной музыкой началось когда я поехал в США и познакомился там с девочкой из Ровно, Украина. Мы провели с ней очень много времени общаясь о разных вещах, но большее количество времени провели за общением и прослушиванием электронной музыки. При просмотре Boiler Room’а с HNNY и прослушивании Jamie XX, внутри появлялось ощущение полета, что и дало мне полнейшее осознание того, как музыка может влиять на твое состояние и настроение. Последние года очень сильно вдохновляет Jacques Greene, вот его электронная музыка — это действительно уникальная вещь, и мне нравится что это пока что не на “хайпе”. Надеюсь, таким и останется. W: Пара слов о твоем подкасте S: Каждый мой tape это некое подобие сказки/истории, чтобы у людей была возможность погрузится в него, почувствовать этот процесс создания, почувствовать форму этой композиции. Это то, чего бы я хотел в будущем достигать в лично мною созданных композициях, началом которых станет EP, которая будет выпущена в 2020. SAINTPVBLO     W: Планы на 2019? S: Развитие бренда, несколько инсайдерских вещей, которые пока что не могу озвучить, но они будут ближайшим летом уже воплощены. В предвкушении огромном от работы, которая ждет меня в этом и последующих годах с TRÜFFLÉ™ . Закончу с композициями, которые будут входить в мой первый EP, мастеринг и разные вещи которые сделают мой первый полноценный выход в мир музыки. Возможно, винильчик нарисуем, who knows) 1     W: Пять треков, отражающих твое внутреннее состояние на данный период времени S: Ненавижу Shazam. Композиции которые не находит Shazam — они самые фантастические, и так будет всегда! Map.ache –  You Need The Devil 5:45 Burial and Four Tet – Moth 9:04 Tevo Howard –  Boing Pop (Kornél Kovács Remix) 6:40 молчат дома – танцевать 3:22 Synkro –  Look at Yourself 4:36 Путешествуйте, пожалуйста! Это делает людей настолько интересными личностями. И чем больше людей будет знакомиться с другими культурами, тем легче будет стать единым целым. В этом ведь суть гармонии.

Tell us something more about you in general My name is Thiago Ostoic, im from Uruguay. I have been working under the alias of Paniik for 2 years, when I started to get interested in the deep house sound, but then I was strongly attracted by dub sounds, minimal and sampled material, now my tracks have ambients where I want to take the listener to certain situation or some feeling. When did music become a great part of your life? It's hard to answer, music was always an important part of my life; but when I was around 15 years old I started to feel interested in creating my own sounds and trying to do what I wanted to hear. At first they were boombap beats with jazz and funk samples but I wanted to go a little further and start creating my compositions on house rhythms and breaks. What equipment or software do you use for production? Most of my tracks have organic samples which I record with a portable recorder, in software I work with Reason and I use a small pad. The sounds are designed in the vcv rack, a great open source tool. Sometimes take samples of funk, disco and bossanova vinyls that i listen in a old vinyl player i have. What about your latest track Ur Love Is? It performs the result of finding a raw sound and trying to return a few years ago. The track itself speaks of "your love" for a person, this can be interpreted in many ways, since the melody is becoming something nostalgic or melancholic. This causes the listener to have several ways of interpreting and feeling it. What you can say about the Uruguayan music scene in general? It's very interesting get to know about it In Uruguay the local scene is very varied and its growth has been constant since 2000. Currently it is a solid culture full of interesting material, recently began to introduce the lofi in events and productions but mainly listen to house and techno. Some years ago it also expanded outside the capital, having parties and raves in different parts of the country. Some of the most outstanding and quality producers are the recent Error 909, Pulse who had Baltra playing on a local radio, Raveros known for having organized some of the most popular raves, Phonotheque with shows of international artists and Orbitar a local project focused on livesets. What about your latest release on RawCraft Music? Rawkuts is an ep in which I try something different, this conformed by 2 tracks with a lofi sound loaded with minimalist and deep influences. Both of break rhythms with samples of Roland 808 and raw and crunchy bass, the pads are vinyl sampled. The promo can be hear on TraxSource What are your plans for 2018? Before the end of this year I want to get some collaborations, finish a lofi project that I have and start uploading collections of various artists to my latest label project Made In Saturn So Far by Paniik   Top 5 tracks for you now Baltra – Never let go of Me Laurence Guy – Wichita Falls Midland – Drumtrak Sweely – Dancing with U Mathew Jhonson – Marionette

So what is this Truth thing all about and who’s behind? Truth Radio is a podcast channel presenting raw and dusty lofi house. Truth Radio is also releasing free EPs from upcoming talents. We also run Truth Moments, which is a vinyl only label out of Truth Radio. Truth Radio and Truth Moments are working under the umbrella “Truth”. Truth is founded by DJ JAN SPORT & Dill Collins in 2016. DJ JAN SPORT loves to explore the world with the truth and put music into his bag. Dill Collins just recently changed his name from Phil to Dill; however, still loves his drums. How and why did you start your Truth projects? We met around 2009 during our studies at “the school of truth” and quickly found a common interest in parties and especially electronic music. In the beginning, we usually met a few times a week in a little studio to hear very loud music and get fried together. After that we went out to hear even more music. Well, we probably spent about 5 years going to parties and listening to and collecting music together before the “Truth” suddenly turned out. So a close friendship and many fun nights with music gave birth to “Truth”. When Truth Radio developed into being both a podcast channel and digital label, the natural next step was starting a vinyl label. A dream we have had for many years and now we felt the time was right. We reached out to Slim Hustla and Interplanetary Criminal to hear if they were up for doing a vinyl. A few months later we had the tracks and since then we have collaborated with Lobster to get the presses and distribution done. And now the 300 copies are finally in sale! So even though we are just the two of us behind the label, we need to dedicate the truth to the entire community, which is a big part of it. There are so many kind and skilled upcoming producers and DJs who continuously guide our way. Also the different graphic designers, whom we have cooperated with have had a big role <3 What is the purpose of your projects and labels? Our mission is to present talents who will make us dance in the dark 🙂 We started Truth Radio because there is so much dope music within this specific community; however, we felt that we had to give something back – something truth. None of us are particularly good at producing; however, our love for the vibes is so true that we simply had to do something more than just listening and doing mixtapes. So it felt very true in our hearts and souls to make a platform where we can present the music, which we really love. Also, we have always had a passion for vinyls and we love playing and collecting ourselves. The mission with the music is pretty simple for us. With everything we release we aim to be 120 % true to our heart. The important thing for us is to release and share music that we ourselves find so awesome that others might love it too. That is basically what keeps us going; sharing our passion and love for lofi house with other like minded people around the world. You recently released your first vinyl. Can you tell a little bit about it? TM001 is a 4 tracker vinyl only release in 300 copies. The A side features Interplanetary Criminal, who was actually the very first artist we welcomed on Truth Radio with a mixtape back in 2016. You can perhaps say that he started our journey and love for lofi house and basically put the direction for where we are today. We have loved everything he has produced, whether it is mixes or tracks. His music is very unique with a combination of catchy vocal samples and raw lofi house beats. It goes directly into our truth hearts <3 The B side features Slim Hustla with one of the tracks in collaboration with DJ ÆDDIAS.  We still remembers when we discovered Slim Hustla’s Soundcloud page. We immediately called each other said “Hey!! Have you seen this new Slim Hustla page?! Have you heard TRAPPED IN DA SPEED FORCE!? It’s so fire!” We really liked that they were hidden and secret and no one knew who they really were. It was just after a few months writing back and forth in english when they finally said “Okay we can’t keep it as a secret for you anymore, let’s write in Danish instead haha”. In our opinion they totally came with their own style and perception of lofi house. We have been in love with their sound ever since and it was pretty clear that we wanted Slim Hustla on TM001. With the B2 track Slim Hustla partnered up with DJ ÆDIDIAS and out came the track “Touch”, which is just everything we love about lofi and house put together in a symphony of pure raw love. DJ ÆDIDIAS definitely knows the truth! Last summer we had the pleasure of premiering one of their tracks made in collaboration. It seemed like the community loved this one and therefore we are very pleased to welcome back their work on TM001 <3 What’s the plans for the label? Are you looking for more artists to be featured In the future? We are currently planning TM002 and TM003. Unfortunately we cannot share anything yet; however, in general, keep an eye of the artists we release mixes and EP’s with on Truth Radio. These are most likely the ones we will go after with Truth Moments also. Also we release a digital EP almost every month on Truth Radio and next up is some really dope shit from Lee Wolf, Buddy Lembeck and more awesome talents. Are you currently looking for tracks? If yes, what are you looking for in a track or artist? What kind of vibe? We are always looking for new tracks and we love receiving demos that we can perhaps use in our mixtapes. Even though we put a lot of time in finding new music and new artists ourselves, we sometimes get blown away from an unknown artist sharing his or her tracks. A few of the EP’s on Truth Radio actually came this way. We really do appreciate people taking time to share their music with us and we always do our best to listen and reply everyone. Music wise, we enjoy it rather raw, dusty and dark, but at the same time groovy. Lately we have been very impressed by the sounds coming from Ukraine and Russia. These vibes are super raw but at the same time emotional and dreamy. contact with Truth Radio Where can people buy music releases by Truth Radio? TM001 is still available in a few online stores: – HHV – Lobster Records – Junorecords All our digital releases through Truth Radio are available for free on our Bandcamp page Anything else you want to add? As we said earlier, all our love goes out to the entire community that is spreading so much good vibe around the world. We send our love to the truth listeners, producers and similar-minded labels and channels like Moskalus, Houseum, Four Heads, PalmStructure, Too Rough 4 Radio, Rawcast, Making Waves Underground, Haus of Altr, These Things Take Time, 40 Nights, Dansu Discs, Who’s Susan, Rodeo, Eminent, Helmstedtunderground, Charmin Records, We Play Wax, Sound Transitions, LR4991, Project Indigo, SHD, Criminal Practice, PIFF Records and Berlin House Music. One truth <3

A few of the EP’s on Truth Radio actually came this way. We really do appreciate people taking time to share their music with us and we always do our best to listen and reply everyone. Music wise, we enjoy it rather raw, dusty and dark, but at the same time groovy. Lately we have been very impressed by the sounds coming from Ukraine and Russia. These vibes are super raw but at the same time emotional and dreamy.

Where can people buy music releases by Truth Radio?

TM001 is still available in a few online stores:

All our digital releases through Truth Radio are available for free on our Bandcamp page

Anything else you want to add?

As we said earlier, all our love goes out to the entire community that is spreading so much good vibe around the world. We send our love to the truth listeners, producers and similar-minded labels and channels like Moskalus, Houseum, Four Heads, PalmStructure, Too Rough 4 Radio, Rawcast, Making Waves Underground, Haus of Altr, These Things Take Time, 40 Nights, Dansu Discs, Who’s Susan, Rodeo, Eminent, Helmstedtunderground, Charmin Records, We Play Wax, Sound Transitions, LR4991, Project Indigo, SHD, Criminal Practice, PIFF Records and Berlin House Music.

One truth <3

 

Please, tell us about your activity at the present time We are publishing music by the artists from Ural Federal District – Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk or it’s districts. We usually make tape releases, but recently, we start using bandcamp as a digital platform for releases. And we also making parties. It’s interesting to know about the way you have passed for the creation of tape music label and events organisation at Ural region? Our first “event” was a stage at the annual festival Ural Music Night (UMN). At that time there were ideas about organisation of music label. But first tapes (it was compilation КОНСТРУКТ) we prefered to release with UMN as a merch. Preparing for the festival has taken about 4 months. After it we had got some unsold tapes and we decided to develop a music label. Closer to autumn we started work at our second compilation Формула В. In honor of the release we make a local party – not so much people, mostly community members and friends. That was a beginning. Is any especial trait makes Urals underground scene more severe? What places in Ekaterinburg you can mark and advise to visit? I can’t say about all region but in Ekaterinburg the bar Мизантроп  is impersonation of Urals underground. Also there is bar Syndrome with interesting music. Guys from promotion bureau ТЕСНОТА organizes very cheerful and nice events in our city among different places. For example, at National Center for Contemporary Art (NCCA) or at abandoned factory – no location limits is better to say. Also Oberton и NOISEFISHIN’‘s parties are necessarily to visit. But if we sum, everything is not so rosy, it’s not enough of interesting artists ready to visit our places   The ideology is the foundation of every action. How you can describe the concept of ФАКТУРА? Ural now is just forming its sound texture, which is should to be realized, to be felt and to be bring to others. This is the main idea of «Фактура». If we talk about releases, what you can say about first release – how it was and how much motivation you have got after it? If we talk about material, our first tape turned out very different. The cover was not perfect for us, but one of the track from this compilation (Cardmoth – Femme Fatale) unexpectedly was bought and published by the owner of youtube channel – Slav The track quickly got up to 20 000 plays and all other cassetes was sold out. That fact inspired us a lot! Because that the second compilation was got together with double-quick. Last question: what is your plans for 2018? We are actively preparing now for the second Ural Music Night, which have place to be on June 29. You could hear experimental sounding in Yekaterinburg Gallery of Modern art – “anonymous improvisations”. In the second half of the year we are planning to pelease 4 tapes at least and settle firmly on Apple Music, Google Play etc. Also some interesting parties are preparing.

Short welofi’s interview with house music producer from Barranquilla (Colombia)  DJ MAYBE lo-fi house   How much time do you spend on music? It depends on the week – if have too much to do. But probably like 2 days a week I work on my music and and the rest for me it’s just  looking for more music Can you tell us something about how your musical taste evolution? Well when I first started to listen electronic music I was into dubstep and witch house around 2010. Then the deep house era hit me and I’ve started to do my own productions and finally my music taste right now can turn my music into house, electro and techno What devices or software do you use in music production? For my music productions I use ableton live 9 with just my custom presets and samples. I want to keep it simple because when my tracks get too complex I don’t like them anymore. The VST’s I use the most are dexed, izotope vinyl and guitar rig What you think about the so-called «lo-fi» scene/music which became quite a popular thing now? I think this genre is just awesome – people have no boundaries for do what they love. This let people follow any path they want and keepin it nostalgic and warm For you personally music is a main occupation or just a lovely hobby? Producing music it’s my favorite hobby, I’m currently learning to mix on vinyl and studying computer science. I hope maybe in the future music can be my main occupation   What do you think about new colombian house scene and interesting places for visit in your opinion? I don’t know too much about colombian house to be honest, but I think the guys of Discos Nutabe from Medellin are doing a really good job and my friend Felipe Gordon who just release on Toy Tonics. About places to visit in Colombia there is one place on Medellin called Calle 9+1 Top 5 tracks for you now Here is my top: Alicia Myers – I Want To Thank You (Earl Jeffers Edit) Adryiano – Dreams With l Niles Cooper – Reach Out (4U) Supreems – Close Your Eyes (And Feel) Kask – Vorst
