Lis Sarroca Lis Sarroca - we know her as a DJ and producer , she’s been getting better acquainted with her studio gear, buying more records, going through her records, playing her records, thinking about her records… such is the lockdown life of the DJ. An accomplished producer, Sarroca has released what she calls her “danceable, energetic, deep and warm”music on Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse and Mobilee, has put out three excellent EPs on Hot Haus, *sinnmusik and House Cookin Records this year and her sombre deep house piano track Parquime has just been included on a Seven Villas compilation. DJing came first for Sarroca, who began gigging in 2007 but only started producing in 2014. Since then she has developed a classy, sophisticated house sound. Her synths are expansive: broad pad sweeps, bold melody lines and interlinking chimes and pad tones all work together in her cleanly produced tracks. There’s plenty of Detroit references in some of her synth sounds – one of her earliest productions, Melograph from 2018, matches a killer acid bassline with some unselfconsciously Detroit stabs to superb effect – and while some of her tracks are definitely in that tradition, her beats often take their cues from the classic US house template. As we know from internationaldjmag.com We also ask her a couple of questions. You have a lot of releases - that's definitely took a lot of time. May you tell as a story how and why did you come to music? I was around 21 years old, finishing college and a bit bored, I wanted to have a new hobby as before I was playing on a basketball team and decided to quit. Djing with my friends became the best thing to do on weekends and I devoted my time on making mixes and listening to a lot of music. Definitely, it was electronic music what hit me on that time. How much should one vinyl cost in your opinion? That’s a interesting question nowadays as record albums are covering a wide range of music. And a lot of people ownselves aware that some records are valuable - among both casual music fans and strong vinyl collectors. I think 10€ is a fair price for 3-4 tracks. What you can say about hype genres in the electronic underground nowdays? Hype genres are a great thing nowadays; it’s a good way to give more visibility to new and smaller artists and labels. It also gives more opportunities to whole industry and lets people and listeners discover more underground music. Russia is a large country with a lot of electronic artists in its suburbs. Nowadays we have a strange period in our country's life - politics, pandemic, protests movements etc. Such moods cannot remain unnoticed and are reflected in music. But I don't want to say that the local music has taken on a negative and gloomy tone. Instead, there was a shake-up in the musical trends, which gave a new impetus to development. Maybe you have any favorite Russian producer? Low Tape and Andrey Pushkarev. I discovered Low Tape a few years ago, when I was listening to his release on Nerang Recordings. I love playing his tracks, they have a great energy. Andrey Pushkarev - I listened live his dj set this spring and he blow me, then I dig more on his productions, he is top producer and label manager. Hah, good choise. And what you think about the future of clubs in 2050? I think there will be some artificial intelligence for sure, but I believe that the essence of the human being still be present in some way. I think we would have more technology on listening/hearing things. That would go directly to out bodies, ears and brains. No matter where you are standing in the club. I also think about virtual clubs. If you are at home for instance and you want to experiment being on a club you can wear a dress and use headphones to feel almost everything and also other people around you.   Thank you for this words and for continued our podcast for the community 🙂   welofi · Lis Sarroca //weloficast 131 июнь июль This mixtape as a deep electronic story that needs to be told.

Interview and podcast by Lis Sarroca

Russia is a large country with a lot of electronic artists in its suburbs. Nowadays we have a strange period in our country's life - politics, pandemic, protests movements etc. Such moods cannot remain unnoticed and are reflected in music. But I don't want to say that the local music has taken on a negative and gloomy tone. Instead, there was a shake-up in the musical trends, which gave a new impetus to development. Maybe you have any favorite Russian producer?

Low Tape and Andrey Pushkarev.

I discovered Low Tape a few years ago, when I was listening to his release on Nerang Recordings. I love playing his tracks, they have a great energy.

Andrey Pushkarev - I listened live his dj set this spring and he blow me, then I dig more on his productions, he is top producer
and label manager.

Hah, good choise. And what you think about the future of clubs in 2050?

I think there will be some artificial intelligence for sure, but I believe that the essence of the human being still be present in some way. I think we would have more technology on listening/hearing things. That would go directly to out bodies, ears and brains. No matter where you are standing in the club. I also think about virtual clubs. If you are at home for instance and you want to experiment being on a club you can wear a dress and use headphones to feel almost everything and also other people around you.

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).
