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
