DEUTSCHE ÜBERSETZUNG EINBLENDEN

Für jemanden, der noch nie von dir gehört hat: Welcher Track wäre geeignet, um einen Eindruck von deinem Schaffen zu kriegen?

In der Schnittmenge von Dark Progressive und Dark Psy

Mein aktueller Favorit ist „Self Petting“ von der „A Push Forward“ Compilation, die mein guter Freund Fabio Leal zusammengestellt hat. Der Track ist deep, voller analoger Sounds und, wie ich finde, sehr psychedelisch. Ich habe dafür den Synthie Tetra von DSI benutzt… was für ein Biest! So sieht’s aus, ich bin eine echte Technologie-Schlampe und liebe Synthies. Ja, dieser Track wäre ein guter Einstieg.

Du warst mal Dark Psy Produzent. Wie kommt’s, dass du einen Gang runter geschaltet hast?

Im Jahr 2006 war ich als Coma Sector unterwegs, mein erstes Dark Psy Projekt mit meinem Kumpel Anx / Void Controller. Da hörte ich diesen oberfetten Track – die Produktion war unglaublich sauber, minimalistisch, industriell… echt geiler Scheiß! Das war „Tropicana“ von Sensient’s „Pressure Optimal“ Album. Das Ding war experimentell, nicht von der Sorte „Titten raus, hier kommt der Offbeat von meinem neusten Beatport Hit“. Das hat mich echt inspiriert und ca. 3 Jahre später ging ich als HypoGeo mit meiner ersten EP an den Start. Scheiß’ auf Bewährtes – wir brauchen neue Ideen, keine Nachmacher!

Und wie schaffst du es, nicht zum Nachmacher deines eigenen Sounds zu werden, wie leider viele Produzenten da draußen?

Technologie eröffnet dir die Möglichkeit, deinen Sound immer wieder neu zu erfinden. Im Moment bin ich z.B. auf dem Modular-Synthie Film. Das hat tausende neue Türen geöffnet. Ich bastel mein eigenes Eurorack System und wurde einmal mehr daran erinnert, dass es im Bereich Sound wirklich keine Grenzen gibt – außer vielleicht meinen Kontostand…

Du hast letzten Sommer auf vielen kleinen und vielen großen Festivals gespielt. So ganz spontan: Was ist dir davon in Erinnerung geblieben?

Eine der beeindruckendsten Bühnen war definitiv auf dem Modem Festival – großartiges Konzept, bei dem der DJ von der Tanze fast nicht sichtbar war und außerirdisches Video Mapping. Es war klasse, vor vielen verschiedenen Leuten zu spielen und ich möchte mich bei ihnen für die wunderbare Unterstützung der letzten Jahre bedanken!

For somebody who has never heard of you: What would be a good track to get an impression of what you are doing?

At the crossroads of Dark Progressive and Dark Psy

My latest favourite is “Self Petting” from the “A Push Forward” compilation by my good friend and colleague Fabio Leal. It’s deep, full of analog sounds and very psychedelic in my opinion. I used a synth called Tetra from DSI, very fat sounding little beast. I must admit, I’m a gear slut and simply love synthesizers. So yeah, this tune might give you an idea of what I do.

You used to be a Dark Psy producer. How come you decided to shift down a gear… or two?

Around 2006, while playing as Coma Sector, my very first Dark Psy project together with my friend Anx / Void Controller, I heard a super fresh track – the production was incredibly clean, minimalist, industrial, deep as fuck! It was “Tropicana” from Sensient’s “Pressure Optimal” album. What I loved was that it was on the side of “experimentation”, not on the side of “show me your boobs while I drop this offbeat bass of my latest Beatport hit”. That really inspired me and I came up with my first HypoGeo EP something like 3 years later. Fuck formulas – we need fresh ideas, not copycats!

And how do you make sure you’re not becoming a copycat of your own sound, like so many producers?

Well, technology offers you the possibility to always re-innovate your sound. At the moment I’m diving into the world of modular synthesis, for example. That opened billions of sonic doors. I’m building my little Eurorack system and I can say that it is showing me once again that there are no borders in the realm of sound, the only border is my wallet…

You played at many festivals last summer, from small to huge. Any special memory that pops up to your mind?

One of the most impressive stages I played was definitely Modem Festival, amazing concept with the DJ almost not visible from the dancefloor and a real crazy alien video mapping. It was great to play in front of a great variety of people, I’d really like to thank them for the amazing support over the years!

Summer is getting beautifully busy, right the time to sit a couple of months in my new Berlin homestudio to start writing the first tracks that will become the successor of "Tree of Lies"

Its gonna be another "concept" album, reflecting the sick world we are all living in,.. not sure when but it will come and it will not be "soft" 🤘🏿
