VERY excited to have the legend that is B.Visible on the guest mix for the Morbidly Obese Midget this Wednesday on Glitch.FM. Here's an interview and the show archive!
Please introduce yourself...I'm a DJ, producer and graphic designer from Slovenia, living in Vienna right now. I love nearly every kind of music, but i get mostly inspired by hip hop and electronic music.
How would you describe your style of music?Must be something like hip hop based beats with synth elements. But that's quite difficult because I'm really not focused on just one style. Sometimes I make also straight boombap beats with scratches (like the Decktales project I'm running with a very talented producer and DJ from southern Austria called Stylestab).
What first turned you onto this style? Any particular artists or tracks?Definitely Danny Breaks. I was totally blown away when i got the Dimension - 3D record. Also a big influence or probably the reason why I started to produce music was RJD2 with his Dead Ringer LP. After hearing this Record I really had the wish to learn the music production process.
What's your jam right now?I can't wait for the new Bibio album. The track "You" can already be heard on youtube. Sooo good, gonna be my sound for the summer.
What's the scene like where you are?It's OK, Vienna has like 5-6 solid clubs with good soundsystems and plenty of motivated promoters setting up really great parties.
What's the craziest gig you've ever played?Haha, probably not good to talk on the internet about it.
Where do you like to play the most?In Vienna definitely the Flex, because of the incredible sound. But in general I really enjoy to play at homeparties or small clubs with my closest friends, that's the most fun.
For all the tech geeks out there - what kit do you use?I work with Maschine, a lot of software synths, sometimes Micro Korg, a SP 404, and for the coming EP I quite often used the Juno-106. Then I use turns for sampling and scratching, the very first Apogee Duet and some Adam speakers, that's it. Really looking forward to use also the iPad for my future productions. A friend showed me some really awesome tools recently.
Who's inspiring you at the moment?The nice weather! The spring finally hit Vienna, after a long cold winter.
Who are you looking out for musically in 2013?There is a young producer over here in Vienna called Salute. He is only 17 years old but is making incredible good and unique tracks. His new project will be released really soon and I think it's gonna be massive.
What's the next project in the pipeline?My new EP is coming in may via the Austrian label duzz down san. There will be also a strongly limited 7" featuring 2 tracks of the EP.
Soundwise it's slightly different from my last release on Riddim Fruit. I think its a little bit more experimental but I still tried to keep it funky. You can hear two tracks of it in my mix.
I will also finish my 90s remix series called Sloppy Drive Puzzle. The last track of this free fun project will be available this month on Soundcloud.
