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.

Lo-fi house (also referred to as outsider house) is a genre of electronic music combining elements of house music, techno and noise. The music is often rough-sounding and "lo-fi", in contrast to the "polished cleanliness" of other contemporary electronic music genres. The term "outsider dance" was first coined in 2012 by DJ Ben UFO and music journalist Scott Wilson, referring to different producers and record labels "operating at the fringes of the fringes" such as Laurel Halo and labels including L.I.E.S., Opal Tapes, Future Times, 1080p, and Lobster Theremin. Outsider house is also closely related to technoise, a fusion of techno and noise music Lo-fi (originally typeset as low-fi [from the term "low fidelity"] and alternately called DIY [from "do it yourself"]) is an aesthetic of recorded music in which the sound quality is lower than the usual contemporary standards, or which highlights imperfections of the recording for artistic effect. These standards have evolved throughout history, meaning that some older examples of lo-fi may not have been originally recognized as such. Lo-fi only began to be recognized as a style of popular music in the 1990s. Harmonic distortion (or "analogue warmth") is sometimes wrongly suggested as a core feature of lo-fi music. Its aesthetic is actually defined by the inclusion of elements normally viewed as undesirable in professional contexts, such as misplayed notes, environmental interference, or phonographic imperfections (degraded audio signals, tape hiss, and so on).
