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.

Today's weloficast series podcast vol.7 by MAAVIN. We talked to him and asked some questions about his creativity and views on life. That's what we got: What are the reasons for you to love this specific raw sounding? I think raw scene resonates with me the most not only because of its specific crusty and early hip-hop influenced sound, but also its overall atmosphere. You can't get the same feeling listening to commercially produced record. If we talk about devices, which are the most important in studio in your opinion and which do you use in music production? I can't afford to use hardware in my production, so instead I study the principles of its work and then try to emulate it in my DAW. That said, the most important thing to me is my MIDI keyboard, I think its essential to have one in order to achieve the flowing and dynamic sound. If I had the opportunity I'd buy mpc60 or sp1200, their iconic 12-bit sound influenced my music quite a lot. And what do you think about the tendencies of development of raw house music in Russia? Russia has a lot of different incredibly talented producers and thanks to the Internet some of them are well-known overseas, even more so than here. When it comes to general public, I think the raw house scene is still very much underground, but it's only a matter of time before it changes. We already have our own independent labels and a fast growing community. You are one of the creators of events under the auspices of the SESSIA, please tell us something more about the idea of its creation? We created SESSIA together with one of my friends, rarimdamph. We both wanted to make an event where it'd be possible to play the music we like and invite artists that we personally enjoy. You can't hear this type of sound in a lot of places. We had a few troubles at the start before figuring out the path we wanted to follow, but I think right now we've got the potential to grow into something great. What's in the plans for SESSIA events? Maybe SESSIA x Boiler Room? - That sounds good. SESSIA's got a lot of plans. We want to expand and invite not only Russian musicians, but also some of the people we enjoy from all over the world. Right now you can look forward to collaboration between us and VDL. Ok, and finally, if we talk about your self-development, what inspires you the most? Fortunately I know a lot of very very talented people and their creativity is what often gives me the urge to immediately drop everything and go write new music. I got a lot of plans for future releases, including collaborations with some of my favorite Russian producers. Stay tuned.
