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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
