You are known for your Dub infused techno, What are the processes behind writing a Daktari tune?
Well,... hard to say. It could be anything what inspires me to start a project. That’s the hardest part ^^...Once i have a basic loop ready i jam around and record some stuff . Then i listen a lot to all the parts i created and think about how i would like to arrange them. After that i listen to the tune a lot and send/show a preview version to a couple of qualified friends for feedback and i try to listen to it on a couple of different sound sytems and headphones. When all this happened i wait for a couple of days and see if i am still happy with what i wrote, maybe i change something, everything or nothing and repeat the process :)
You’re originally from Germany but now based in Australia, what brought on the shift from Europe to Aus?
My woman, the people here, sun and bush doof’s :)
How did you get into electronic music production?
Through my friends , they were the ones who gave me samples, programs and most importantly a part of their knowledge. Special thanks to Neil Perch, Tim Streckfuss , Henning Fischer, Michael & Julian Terbuyken.
