Disc Breaks with Llupa ft. Hironimus Bosch - 289 - 24th April 2014

This week on the show we have a very cool guest mix from Hironimus Bosch! I've been a fan of the man for a few years both for his own tunes as much as for his amazing label AUX Technology. He has consistently supported and pushed the deeper, more tech and dare I say interesting end of breakbeat for years. Needless to say a Hironimus or AUX track pretty much makes every show or set I play. This mix showcase where the man's head is at and includes a few exclusives first time plays of some of his fresh tracks. This is chunky, techy and groovy - GTFI!

Hironimus graciously gave some time to do the DBS interview, with the full transcript here he tells us about how he decides on tunes for AUX and how it all started with a cello...

Finally, I just want to thank everybody who voted for the Disc Breaks Show at Breakspoll. The nominations came out today and we made the top 5! I am so grateful for the recognition and regardless of what happens on the night, I already feel like a winner!

Damn that was great, massive respect to Hironimus Bosch for the proper journey guest mix taking us through a stack of vibes and genres - all quality. My bit was in the techy end with lots of chunky grooves and some killer new tunes.

INTERVIEW - Hironimus Bosch


Why breaks and what got you into it?

When I was at uni, one of my house mates introduced me to it and I just couldn’t get enough of the bass. I was more into Techno and D&B at the time, but Breaks really interested me because it could be mixed alongside Techno and it had a lot of crossover appeal. It was all just starting to kick off at the time and the Bass always sounded so deep and dangerous. Music for the head as well as the dancefloor.


What are your musical influences and who is exciting you musically at the moment?

I would need a whole book to list all my musical influences as I guess everything I listen to influences me in some way, even the really terrible stuff. I have an insatiable appetite for new music so I’m always listening to new sounds. The artists who are really doing it for me right now are (in no particular order): Si-Begg, Reset Robot, Turbowolf, Foamo, Martyn, Livity Sound, Om-Unit… I could go on all day – but I won’t.


How do you go about crafting a new tune or remix?

My methods change and evolve all the time, but sometimes I get into a comfortable flow and I make as many tunes as I can until it gets stale. I’m always learning and improving.

Bass and groove is the most important thing to me so I usually start there and develop ideas from that. Sonic doodling basically. I usually mix as I write.


What is your musical background and what instruments do you play, if any?

I used to play Cello when I was a kid and then I taught myself guitar when I was 14 and started a band. It was a lot of fun and we used to play in clubs and bars, we even won a couple of competitions. It was a punk/rock band and I was well into that until I discovered dance music.


When you sit down to write a tune do you know how it will sound in the end or just go with whatever comes out at the time?

I think I used to just go with whatever came out when I first started, simply because I wasn’t skilled enough in the studio.  Now I get an idea in my head when I’m having a shower or cooking and then just get in the studio as quick as possible to nail it down. It's much easier now to translate ideas from my head into the studio.

What equipment do you use and what is your favourite bit of Kit?

To be honest I’m a bit of a gear junkie, especially because I’m doing so much mastering and mixing now for AUX. I’m fortunate to get to use a lot of high-end hardware in the AUX studio which is a lot of fun.  Although Plug-ins have come a long way, there’s nothing like having the real analogue hardware at your fingertips.  I wouldn’t say I have a favourite piece because they all have their part to play and they all sound amazing otherwise I wouldn’t have them in the studio.  Having said that the UAD cards get a lot of love when I’m mixing, as they are in some cases indistinguishable from the real thing.  I love the Lexicon 224 reverb and the EL-Fatso is just awesome.

 If I really had to choose a favourite would it be boring if I said my main monitors? The AUX studio has Quested V3110 mains mounted on twin Quested X12 subs and they are my real work horses. It’s a monster 4 way system flat from 20Hz – 22Khz with a combined power rating of about 3KW. Its critically accurate with the same power and depth as a full club soundsystem. I work on them sometimes for 12 hours a day and my ears don’t get tired simply because they do not distort even at high volume.  Although to be honest I’ve never turned them up above half way! They are without doubt some of the best in the world and the factory is only a couple of hours drive from the studio, which is a real bonus.


Do you write any other genre’s of music?

Sometimes, in fact I’m toying with the idea of using a new alias for my next project. 


In what direction are you heading musically and what new releases have you got in store for us?

This guest mix is a pretty good indication of where I’m headed musically and I’ve managed to sneak a few unreleased tracks of my own on there. Techno has always been my main passion and fusing that with Breakbeats and bass music has always been my main focus.

I’ve got a couple of new releases in the pipeline and some new collaboration projects which I’m working on; all top secret of course ;-)


What qualities are you looking for when signing tunes/artists to AUX?

I think the most important thing is that it's got to have dancefloor appeal, I know that's an obvious thing, but so many tracks I get sent just don’t have any of that. If it's not going to work on a dancefloor then I’m not interested in signing it. I also look for music which has an edge, AUX has always been an underground label so the music has to have something gritty about it. Beyond that I always like to work with artists who are pushing the boundaries and fusing styles. Artists like PRZK and Rcaine are really making music which is sort of indefinable because it draws on so many different influences and I really love that when you’re listening to a track and you suddenly think ‘What the hell is this music?’ Production quality is also important but if a track needs some extra work, then with the artists permission I just do a fresh mixdown in the AUX studio.


What do you think of the current state of breaks worldwide and where do you see the future?

Woah, big question! I think that there is loads of amazing new music out there which uses Breakbeats and there’s some really great things happening in the UK bass scene right now which is really inspiring.  I think the musical term ‘Breaks' has almost become a dirty word and it’s a pretty niche group of people who are really into it now. ‘Breaks’ as a genre has had it's peak just like D&B and Dubstep and there will always be a hardcore group of fans which is great.

Using Breakbeats as a drum rhythm rather than a music genre on the other hand is a really thriving trend, it's just being re-invented as other new styles. So the future for me isn’t really in ‘Breaks’ as a genre, I just like music which uses Breakbeats.


What came first the producing or the dj’ing?

I got into sound recording, engineering and producing well before I started DJing. 


What do you listen to when you’re not writing/dj’ing?

Dub, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul, Rock, Metal, Punk, Ska, Blues, Classical, Electronica… everything really.


What do you do when you're not producing music?

Mastering, mixing, running the label, managing the studio, Djing, going to gigs. parties… it's all about the music really.  Except when I need some exercise, its good to get out the studio sometimes and there's some great mountain bike trails nearby. At the other end of the spectrum, I love real ale and single malt whisky.


Tell us something about yourself we wouldn't know to ask....

I don’t believe in vaccinations or promos.

Disc Breaks with Llupa ft. Virus19xx - 288 - 17th April 2014

This week on the show we have a very big mix from Virus19xx! His stuff is quite hard and heavy normally so I tend not to play much of his stuff on the show, but the mix he's done for us shows some amazing depth in both music and skills - and is damn cool.

Virus19xx

Virus19xx

Moscow DJ/Producer/Promoter/Manager Nick Nightingale aka Virus19xx took up playing music in his early childhood. When he was 6 years old he started attending music school. By the time he finished it, he got interested in electronic music. The first tracks he was really crazy about were the soundtracks to the video games. Then he got to know about such musicians as Moby, FatBoy Slim, Dolphin, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Orbital and others. At that time Nick realized that his soul would belong to breakbeat. Certainly, Nightingale didn’t limit himself by break only. He listened lots of hard electro styles such as techno, psy, D’n’B, hardcore & some of rap.

In 2004 Virus19xx did his first experiment with music, which resulted in some unusual bootlegs & mixes that contained hardest and most expressive tracks from monsters of breakbeat. Its selections was very unusual and rare for that time, especially for Russia. By that time Virus19xx had became a leader of BREAKBEATZONE (Russian BreakBeat Community). His production was shown only for members of this community.

In 2008 Nick became a chief-promoter of BREAKBEATZONE project with creating BBZ Promo group. Nowadays it is the main Moscow breakbeat party-project. Also label BBZ was founded. Nick 19gale is its contract holder, administrator and manager.

"I never chase for newness. First of all you must be in full swing because of music. I always try as many variants of material presentation as I’m able. Very often interesting solutions come to my mind even when I don’t wait for it at all. Sometimes you just walk along the street, imagine what sounds you can combine with each other and understand that you can record a cool mix. I never stop on the way of self-improving and always lead my skills on a new level."

Nowadays, Virus19xx continues his work with music. He always seek new material and tries to find out and create the most exciting and brain-exploding materials for mixing and production.

The 1st official school teacher of EDM in Russia and the most savage tech-punk DJ.

Disc Breaks with Llupa ft. Cafeman - 287 - 10th April 2014

Continuing the run of DBS Guests, this week we have none other than chat room regular, top bloke and actually pretty damn good DJ - Cafeman! I've gotten to know Mike via the show over the last few years and recently he's been posting some quality sets on his Mixcloud, so thought I should get him on. this set sits firmly in the techno/tech funk side of the room - phat, chunky and groovy - one not to miss

Cafeman

Also, it's Breakpoll time again - as if you didn't know already.. ;) If you're a fan of the show I'd love a vote for Disc Breaks in the 'Best Show' category. I made it top 5 once before, it'd be cool to get there again.

Breakspoll

Cafeman

Born in Budapest, raised in Indonesia. Designer self expressionist. Loves cooking, food experimenting, wok enthusiast.

First release was on a weird hungarian experimental electronic compilation in 1999, since then made some remixes even for a metal band, got some remix prizes and played at some hungarian clubs under lots of aliases (mostly small underground places and events) never too noticed. Turned away from music in 2005 after some bad clubbing experience. Become an art director and expressed myself in design, won some prizes. Turned to breaks at the late 2000's thanks to flack.su the discbreaks show and the good old breakbeat.hu scene. Now mixing for fun at friendly events and got back to producing music now refreshed...that's all i can tell about myself, oh yeah: and have a beautiful daughter who loves music and knows who is darth vader

ah, that was a great show! Loved the guest mix from Cafeman - as did the chatroom - chock full of great tracks mixed really well - a very cool mix! as the guest mix was 1.5 hours I played a little at the beginning, but then as no DJ after me did a short encore set at the end too, so this show is almost 3 hours long - enjoy!

Disc Breaks with Llupa ft. Chevy One - 286 - 3rd April 2014

Big show this week as very stoked to have an interview and guest mix from Chevy One! The man has made a big impact within a small number of years with a consistent and hectic release schedule of both remixes and originals.. Signed to LOT49 he has been rubbing shoulders and collaborating with the likes of Dylan Rhymes and Meat Katie. His tracks have an intensity and relentlessness that we haven't really seen since Santos and his productions are always as phat as they come - needless to say I'm a fan as many other followers of the DBS are too... His mix will be featured on the show tomorrow and has the intensity you'd expect - it's been rocking Chez Llupa for the last couple of days..

Chevy took some time out from his North London studio to do the DBS interview, with the full transcript below he tells us about his upcoming one man show, his ghost producing and his love of cooking... the full interview is here

Big, BIG guest mix from Chevy One, chock full of exclusive new stuff, some of it so fresh there was no ID... Real cool taste of what is coming from the man and what tracks get him going - did I say it was big? I went a little old skool with mine, all the love for the new tech funk stuff coming out made me get a little nostalgic for the old stuff... still squeezed in some new great tun age from Metha, Pio Be at, A:B:S, Optobot and Robotecknic.

Chevy took some time out from his North London studio to do the DBS interview, with the full transcript below he tells us about his upcoming one man show, his ghost producing and his love of cooking...

INTERVIEW - Chevy One

Why breaks and what got you into it?

I was born in the South of Spain and Breakbeat is the music that we dance to all the time. !


What are your musical influences and who is exciting you musically at the moment?

I went to a massive rave at “Industrial Copera" when I was 15 years old, I remember looking at the speakers trying to figure out what instrument was making that sound ( it was a tb303 in fact ) and ever since that day I feIt a deep connection with electronic music. From that experience my idols became Meat Katie, Dylan Rhymes, Lee Coombs, BT, Adam Freelance, PMT, Freq Nasty, General MIDI, Plump DJ’s, Rennie Pilgrem and pretty much any release from Hole 9 Yards, Finger Licking and LOT49. Anything that has the characteristic club sound I’m in to it.


How do you go about crafting a new tune or remix?

I like my 10 am till late session where either I start a new track for my label release schedule or I get the parts for a remix. Lately I’m starting to collaborate with other producers and the deal is pretty much the same with the exception that we don’t leave the room until the tracks is done. Yeah, I like to make my tunes in 1 day.


What is your musical background and what instruments do you play, if any?

I come from the MIDI and vinyl culture and I’ve grown up seeing the changes in electronic music from the Atari to cubase then logic, ableton till now. I like music that has a meaning regardless of the genre. I’ve loved the sound of synthesisers since I was a child and I’ve always played guitar ( not exactly professional ) and keyboards. After all that I’ve focus on my studies in audio recording and anything to do with music studios. Live sound it‘s not my thing.


When you sit down to write a tune do you know how it will sound in the end or just go with whatever comes out at the time?

The truth is, nobody does and that’s what creativity means after all. You can have a good sense of what you want to achieve sound wise but nobody can predict the future.


What equipment do you use and what is your favourite bit of Kit?

I only use my Mac Book Pro that’s all you need to write dance music these days really and my favourite piece of kit are my Focal Twins 6 speakers. I can’t live without them.


Do you write any other genre’s of music?

As a matter of a fact I do, I ghost-write for a lot of DJ’s in London. Mainly Deep House, Electro and Big Room House.


In what direction are you heading musically and what new releases have you got in store for us?

I’m putting together a full act where Chevy One becomes a 1 man show with unseen LED lights on sync with the music. The development is been going on for nearly a year and is about to be completed. I’m very excited about this.


What do you think of the current state of breaks worldwide and where do you see the future?

Breaks have always been there but and I’m quite pissed off that new comers haven’t added it into the Bass Music Genre and let me tell you something, we where here before dubstep came out, rolling sick drops with enormous baselines and nobody cared about us. It is all part of a big business plan and breakbeat either for good or bad has always been left out.


What came first the producing or the dj’ing?

Producing.


What do you listen to when you’re not writing/dj’ing?

The silence.


What do you do when you're not producing music?

I’m running other music business like dboxSamples and recording, mixing tracks for other artists in my studio in north London


Tell us something about yourself we wouldn't know to ask....

I’m a geek and a very good cook :) I have this strange obsession with kitchen appliances that could make me spend money on knifes, cutlery and wine glasses. !
Traveling, eating outside and specially clothes shopping are few things I can not live without #firstworldproblems.
