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?

Swedish underground with DJ Different

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 🙂

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. The main conception of label is house music (lo-fi, raw), though techno is not an exception too.   Five (raw) house tracks which inspire you now Ross from friends - talk to meDj boring - WinonaKedr Livanskiy - your nameSlim Hustla - night patrollinBetonkust & palmbomen II - 24x33 Is there any story stuck in your memory which is connected with your music activity? Ok, tell you the funniest one: it was in Riga during summer 2017 when DJ Boring came to play there. And suddenly he got very tired of questions about «lo-fi» house and of demands «to play some lo-fi house». He just crouched down with beer in his hand and cigarette in his mouth and started to explain that he doesn’t like such an inscription like «lo-fi», its all the same with house music. podcast What are your plans for 2018?

Latvian house with Nicolas Barnes - weloficast vol.14

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. The main conception of label is house music (lo-fi, raw), though techno is not an exception too.

 

Five (raw) house tracks which inspire you now

Ross from friends - talk to me
Dj boring - Winona
Kedr Livanskiy - your name
Slim Hustla - night patrollin
Betonkust & palmbomen II - 24x33

Is there any story stuck in your memory which is connected with your music activity?

Ok, tell you the funniest one: it was in Riga during summer 2017 when DJ Boring came to play there. And suddenly he got very tired of questions about «lo-fi» house and of demands «to play some lo-fi house». He just crouched down with beer in his hand and cigarette in his mouth and started to explain that he doesn’t like such an inscription like «lo-fi», its all the same with house music. podcast

What are your plans for 2018?

This year I want to launch parties with Palmstructure label and to release the first vinyl record with VA on my label as far as possible.

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" Weloficast vol.13 tracklist 1) STL - Summer Breeze And Brotherhood2) ulderico tarasconi - Milano Porta Ticinese3) Tornado Wallace - Zorn Gottes4) Lone - Saturday Night5) ulderico tarasconi - Chirashi6) unreleased7) Spettro, Angelo V - Little Helper 309-38) Dj Nature - L-F 9) Redshape - Blink10) Head High - Rave11) Dreamatic - Audio Trip

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.

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

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.

Weloficast series podcast vol. 12 by WELOFI w/ Денис Казаков Only homeland music - raw sounding of house created by the russian producers 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).
