Short interview with Adam and his  podcast for weloficast series vol.23 lo-fi house -  When did music become a great part of your life? Has it started with a music digging, producing or maybe with your YouTube channel? Well, music has always been a huge part of my life. I started playing drums during 4 years at like 10 years old or something. I remember my biggest "crush" on music, it was in 2007 I think, I was watching MTV and then Kanye West was doing a live performance for some awards show. He performed "Good Life" with T-Pain in Las Vegas and that was insane to me. Since this day Kanye became my favorite artist of all time. Plus, I've always been a music digger, I've spent so much time looking for tracks. My friends were always coming to me to know what I was listening to... And with my YouTube Channel "Adam", I wanted to share kind of unknown producers at first because I know there's so many producers with great talent but still underrated. - Your music is saturated with an inspiration theme. What does it mean to you and where do you find it? I've been through a period, and I still am, where I'm looking for inspiration, motivation. I wanted the "inspiration" thing to be reflected into my music. So with my first track "Inspirational", I sampled a Kanye West's speech that I really like and that's it. Same thing about my second track with a Steve Jobs speech. - Any thoughts about the so-called «lo-fi» scene/music which became quite a popular thing now? I'm really enjoying the lo-fi scene, I know that it's getting more and more popular but I think this is not a bad thing. We can see now multiple producers being booked on the biggest festivals such as Ross From Friends, DJ Seinfeld. There's also this group on facebook called "Strictly Lo-Fi", it's like a community of great people/producers/promoters sharing tracks. But what is good with this group except the good energy of everyone, now that there's many members, it's that the group has the power to make known some "underrated" producers. Much love to SLF. - For you personally music is a main occupation or just a lovely hobby? For me music is just a hobby, other than playing or producing tracks I'm still a university student ! - Any musical plans for 2018 or its a spontaneous thing? It is a spontaneous thing, I'm only producing whenever I feel inspirated but my plans are to release the more tracks I can in 2018. We will see... Top 5 tracks for you now I'd say: Ross From Friends - There's a hole in my heart Loure - Mutual Motion PC - Slow Motion LK - Light Drama Bodhi - Satisfaction   Tracklist White Visitation – Hossoslossohoss Lee Wolf – Good B.Vibes Loure – Mutual Motions Loure – Keep It Real Mall Grab – Caught Slippin Adam – You Gotta AL94 – Abyss CoastDream – Soft Moon Paul Rudder – That Piano Hush Hush – Crush On U Cristo – Gonna Get Some Woki DJ Boring – John Waters Hush Hush – Thinkin Bout You Testpress – sadboys 2002 Quasar – Like A Yellow Frisbee In A Grey Crowd

And with my YouTube Channel "Adam", I wanted to share kind of unknown producers at first because I know there's so many producers with great talent but still underrated.

- Your music is saturated with an inspiration theme. What does it mean to you and where do you find it?

For me music is just a hobby, other than playing or producing tracks I'm still a university student !

- Any musical plans for 2018 or its a spontaneous thing?

It is a spontaneous thing, I'm only producing whenever I feel inspirated but my plans are to release the more tracks I can in 2018. We will see...

Interview for welofi by DJ DIFFERENT - Where did this passion for smooth music come from? Hm... Tough question but I guess since I was a child I was always fascinated by the art of sound in all it's forms. My first two cd's I bought was 666's "Paradoxx" and Michael Jackson's "Past present and future" album. So you can see the difference. - What equipment or software do you use for production? Literally just my Mac with Logic Pro. I experimented with a lot of hardware but it hindered my fast production style ALOT. It's still fun to do live-acts tho. - Where do you find inspiration? I think for me it comes from sad and happy feelings, my mood is very fluctuating and so are my tracks. They can be both sad and very happy and it all depends on what i'm feeling in that exact moment because I make tracks in roughly 2-3h in general. - What projects preceded the emergence of DJ Different in all its diversity? My first Alias was "MODA" and Moda focuses mainly on lofi/oldschool house. I kind of felt cornered with Moda and wanted to be more free in my production style and not care so much about genre but of what made me feel good. Hence came DJ Different. - In your opinion, did the raw music has become quite a popular thing now? I guess so, I've been around the scene in a couple of years now and it has definitely grown a lot. I think people also like the aesthetics of raw house and where it comes from. What drew me to this type of electronic music was it's sincerity to emotions and vibe. - Swedish underground, what is the most conspicuous place for visiting in Sweden? I would def say Malmö and Stockholm for the summers. Especially "Trädgården" in Stockholm and the Underground Scene in Malmö. Some wikkid talent and sweaty dance floor evenings. - What are your plans for 2018? I've got some exciting new releases coming on my favourite labels (5 if all goes as planned) and i'm also in the plans of creating my own label but we will see! Some other news coming up real soon as well but I cannot say yet 🙂 - Top 5 tracks for you now 1. Route 8 - The sunrise in her eyes (Always nr1)(Lobster Theremin) 2. TLIM SHUG - U+99FD (Sushi Mask) 3.

How much time do you spend on music? I'm listening to music daily, could be at home or in public transports. Can't do a day without. About production, I only do when I feel like it, explains the irregular rhythm of my releases. Sometimes I can do nothing for 2 weeks. For me it's not really a question of time, if I have to find some for music, I find it. But the most important thing is to have an idea of ​​what I want to achieve. In your interview for MY MUSIC MOMENTS, you mentioned a wide musical horizon. Can you tell us something about how your musical taste evolution? I had periods with different musical horizons. I was able to discover many artists in many musical genres. I still like nowaday to listen to old death metal bands like I used to as a teenager. I moved from metal to indie, old school drum and bass, hip hop, classical, ambient, house, techno, dub techno... I had 2 others projects (trap and ambient/experimental) that I left before starting AL94 What do you think about the French music scene in general and about its perspectives? I think French music scene offers a HUGE range of variety and awesome creative artists but still not each one get the audience it deserves. But this is not a problem that only affects France, although countries like England are more likely to bring out interesting artists. It's tiring to have to constantly undergo preformatted tracks that we broadcast on television on the radio etc ... and often enough that they involuntarily get into your head. It is fast food music and a large part of the population is happy with it. On a rather positive note, there is no reason to worry about the French scene! And how do you get inspiration? Tell us something about your music making process The main important ingredient in my view is to create a whole atmosphere around a track. I get my inspiration from all the stuff I can listen to currently. I like to pay tribute to some things that may be important to me or even make me laugh.Technically, I choose to select one or more samples and then I draw my drums patterns that will fit to the mood. I take a lot of time choosing wich kick is going to follow this hat, snare... I re-arrange manually numbers values of different knobs on all my track.Same for the bassline.

Some days ago we have talk with Nicolas Barnes and got some new podcast Hey. Nicolas! When music came into your life? Are there any inspirators for that? Music has always been a part of my life. Since childhood, i suppose, when i for the first time heard Daft Punk and they became my inspirators for sure. Since early 90s Riga is one of the most influential centers of developing dance culture among the post-Soviet area. What do you think about the actual state of things in Latvia? Although Latvia was kinda a pioneer in electronic music for USSR in the late 80s, nowadays it has quite poor scene, more and more clubs closing year by year. In my opinion, electronic music scene of Latvia was much better 3-4 years ago. Some thoughts about the actual state of electronic music on post-Soviet area? Talking about the post-Soviet area, among the other Baltic countries I can highlight such country as Lithuania.Also Ukraine has a good level of underground and Moscow, by all means, is a leader in this sphere - there is always something interesting, including parties with the different foreign musicians. You are a founder of RawCraft Music label. Let us know more about its conception? RawCraft label appeared spontaneously, it’s like a test for me - i just want to see what will come of it.

Also Ukraine has a good level of underground and Moscow, by all means, is a leader in this sphere - there is always something interesting, including parties with the different foreign musicians.

You are a founder of RawCraft Music label. Let us know more about its conception?

RawCraft label appeared spontaneously, it’s like a test for me - i just want to see what will come of it. The main conception of label is house music (lo-fi, raw), though techno is not an exception too.

Dj boring - Winona
Kedr Livanskiy - your name

Ciao, Ulderico! How is it going? First of all, let us congratulate you on your «Modelissimo» EP. Interested in model-making? Thank you! Glad you like "MODELLISMO" - The release is going well: everyday I receive new interesting feedback from all around the world, many big names of club culture are supporting the EP.. I couldn't be more pleased I'm not exactly passionate about model-making.. This EP is just my tribute to the old school house music: I did replicas (reproductions) of the music I love.. It was like building a model. How did you first discover your passion for music and for leftfield house in particular? I've always been passionate about electronic dance music.. since I was a child - house / techno / disco / progressive ..I like everything! I'm not exactly a fan of this "new" leftfield wave - Let's say that 2 years ago I (re)discovered my love for the music I used to listen a long time ago. Tell us a bit more about your music equipment. Can you say that an old Akai MPC is your main tool? What about Swiss pocketknife? Sounds very interesting Everything you can hear in this EP passed through an AKAI MPC 1000. I recorded,  cutted and edited every single sample with Akai...  Let's say that this incredible sampler is my swiss pocketknife ..as a multi-tool knife Did you notice that increased attention to the oldschool house/ lo-fi house music, some sort of trend has emerged. What do you think about that? I think music is somehow cyclic, every musical period or trend is going to go back in style, you just need to wait for it to come. What we call "lofi house" today is what we called "old school house" 10 years ago, "underground" 20 years ago or "Chigago house" 30 years ago: we are always talking about the same thing, that periodically goes back on trend.  In this particular case of the lofi house explosion, I personally see that as a celebration of the house music’s roots... at least that’s what it is for me! What inspires you the most? Literally everything! Every kind of music genre can be an inspiration for me... sometimes it’s just a bass, a pad or a voice that gives me the right vibe! There’s no rules in inspiration. I just wish this doesn’t develop into something really mainstream, cause it’s important to know its origins and treat it with respect.

Interview: Welofi x ulderico tarasconi
Ciao, Ulderico! How is it going? First of all, let us congratulate you on your «Modelissimo» EP. Interested in model-making?

Thank you! Glad you like "MODELLISMO" - The release is going well: everyday I receive new interesting feedback from all around the world, many big names of club culture are supporting the EP.. I couldn't be more pleased

I'm not exactly passionate about model-making.. This EP is just my tribute to the old school house music: I did replicas (reproductions) of the music I love.. It was like building a model.

How did you first discover your passion for music and for leftfield house in particular?

I've always been passionate about electronic dance music.. since I was a child - house / techno / disco / progressive ..I like everything!

I'm not exactly a fan of this "new" leftfield wave - Let's say that 2 years ago I (re)discovered my love for the music I used to listen a long time ago.

Tell us a bit more about your music equipment. Can you say that an old Akai MPC is your main tool? What about Swiss pocketknife? Sounds very interesting

Everything you can hear in this EP passed through an AKAI MPC 1000.

I recorded,  cutted and edited every single sample with Akai...  Let's say that this incredible sampler is my swiss pocketknife ..as a multi-tool knife

Did you notice that increased attention to the oldschool house/ lo-fi house music, some sort of trend has emerged. What do you think about that?

I think music is somehow cyclic, every musical period or trend is going to go back in style, you just need to wait for it to come.

What we call "lofi house" today is what we called "old school house" 10 years ago, "underground" 20 years ago or "Chigago house" 30 years ago: we are always talking about the same thing, that periodically goes back on trend. 

In this particular case of the lofi house explosion, I personally see that as a celebration of the house music’s roots... at least that’s what it is for me!

What inspires you the most?

Literally everything! Every kind of music genre can be an inspiration for me... sometimes it’s just a bass, a pad or a voice that gives me the right vibe! There’s no rules in inspiration.

I just wish this doesn’t develop into something really mainstream, cause it’s important to know its origins and treat it with respect. I think this is the only way to make it last longer.

Italy has its special house sound and the community of musicians too. Can you say that Italy is not static in the musical aspect, that it’s developing or there are some problems maybe?

There are a lot of different realities that are coexisting in the Italian underground panorama right now but I feel like the main trend is the techno/techhouse. 

For what the leftfield/lofi is concerned, let’s say the movement is slowly growing, but unfortunately for a dj it’s difficult to find his own place in this panorama.

 

What are your plans for 2018?

I just finished a remix for Platform rec. and with the label (Platform rec.) we just started to work on a special edition of "MODELLISMO" - it will be "MODELLISMO The Remixes": 4 remixers (without distinctions of genre) will work on my tracks, give it new "dresses"

I few days ago we talked with the italian lo-fi house producer  Jacopo Sb. He continued our Weloficast series with the great podcast mix and answered for some questions about his music activities. Short Interview: When did your path with music cross for the first time? Had your music preferences undergone some sort of transformation? I always had this passion for the music and six years ago, by chance, I started listening to underground and electronic music and I felt in love with. Yes, my music suffered the transformation; at first I listened and produced to techno music then I found my way in Lo-fi House music. Who or what inspires your creativity? Judging by the tracks’ titles we dare say that its connected with love by far. I always used to listen to all kind of music and in every track there is a mix of my sound researches , especially in 80's house disco. However in every track I create there is a connection with my family, so it's pure love!  Your music has the specific fruitiness and smooth raw sounding like analogue machines have. Do you get this effect through the analogue equipment? Yes, I work with analogue machine like a microkorg, Roland Tb-03, Roland Tr-09 and especially my loved tape recorder everyday! I like that people listen to the impression of many years ago, old sounds, something like that.Ah...I also use many vst and plugins. Any principles you adhere to in creating your music? I have a few simple rules: first of all, simplicity; then you should always have different sound projects in order to avoid to get bored and it's also important to think about something makes you feel happy; finally there should be a deep bass and reverbered pad!! Tell us something about your releases. Which do you consider the most significant for today or maybe you really proud of smth? I was lucky to be released in many labels but till today the most important release is my Ep "Roxanne" out on Bellissima Records on tape and dig. Soon I'll be part of the V.A "All that Jelly Vol.4 " on Smile For A While on vinyl...it will be a bomb!! What do you think about the course of development of the contemporary raw music scene? I think that it is in full growth (finally!!) but in Italy this style it's not developed like I would, Even if there are many guys that like me represent very well this raw and lofi music scene. However, I love that this style is seen like a music for a few people because who appreciate it have refined tastes! Are there any places/events with the special atmosphere for you to play or just to have some fun? Yes! there are some place where I'd like to play like Dekmantel, Prince Charles, Club 21, Concrete, obviously Boiler Room, Redlights Radio and Serendipity (near my town) and many other... If Santa ask you about any place in the world to play, what would you say? If Santa asks me about a place to play, I'll answer Boiler Room because I like the idea of being in the crowd and the relationship that is created with people. And the last question: how ambitious are your plans for 2018? I hope that 2018 will be a year where I will improve by music and looking for more and more to make my style known and the lofi house music to everyone.

Today's weloficast series podcast vol.7 by MAAVIN. We talked to him and asked some questions about his creativity and views on life. That's what we got: What are the reasons for you to love this specific raw sounding? I think raw scene resonates with me the most not only because of its specific crusty and early hip-hop influenced sound, but also its overall atmosphere. You can't get the same feeling listening to commercially produced record. If we talk about devices, which are the most important in studio in your opinion and which do you use in music production? I can't afford to use hardware in my production, so instead I study the principles of its work and then try to emulate it in my DAW. That said, the most important thing to me is my MIDI keyboard, I think its essential to have one in order to achieve the flowing and dynamic sound. If I had the opportunity I'd buy mpc60 or sp1200, their iconic 12-bit sound influenced my music quite a lot. And what do you think about the tendencies of development of raw house music in Russia? Russia has a lot of different incredibly talented producers and thanks to the Internet some of them are well-known overseas, even more so than here. When it comes to general public, I think the raw house scene is still very much underground, but it's only a matter of time before it changes. We already have our own independent labels and a fast growing community. You are one of the creators of events under the auspices of the SESSIA, please tell us something more about the idea of its creation? We created SESSIA together with one of my friends, rarimdamph. We both wanted to make an event where it'd be possible to play the music we like and invite artists that we personally enjoy. You can't hear this type of sound in a lot of places. We had a few troubles at the start before figuring out the path we wanted to follow, but I think right now we've got the potential to grow into something great. What's in the plans for SESSIA events? Maybe SESSIA x Boiler Room? - That sounds good. SESSIA's got a lot of plans. We want to expand and invite not only Russian musicians, but also some of the people we enjoy from all over the world. Right now you can look forward to collaboration between us and VDL. Ok, and finally, if we talk about your self-development, what inspires you the most? Fortunately I know a lot of very very talented people and their creativity is what often gives me the urge to immediately drop everything and go write new music. I got a lot of plans for future releases, including collaborations with some of my favorite Russian producers. Stay tuned.
