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.

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.

Weloficast vol.30 with producer from Seville, Spain – DJ Nerdiboy As a representative of Nerang Recordings and Dream Raw Recordings he made a mix full of raw sounding   Lo-fi house (also referred to as outsider house/leftfield 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) Some Wiki info

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.

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. TV.OUT - Untitled (Parallax Records) 4. Jensen Interceptor & Assembler Code – Pipe (Private Persons) 5. Lyubocha - Nevanist (Black Opal)   One luv mayte

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.

French raw house vibrancy  with AL94
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. Then after when the whole track is "drawn", I set FX, filters, and audio equalizing where I want it to be and if I feel it requiered or not. As easy as it sounds like!

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 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"
