INTERVIEW.

1. It’s been a little while since your last feature on Disco Droppings, glad to have you back! How’s the music been going?

Music is going good but never the best…I need to work my ass off to be able to create something people and I would say “shit, listening to this track is better than sex!” ehehe.

2. As an artist yourself, what would you say to anyone excited about music making and developing as an artist?

All I can say is…never give up. I know its cheesy and obvious but this is the only thing I can come up with.

3. What’s in the works for Sasa G for the remainder of 2010?

I am going to change the name sasaG and have JayJay and Tobel from KATFYR on board as producer and co-singer. And try to release my songs as soon as possible.

” Teaming up with the mighty Calvertron, and after much blood, sweat and tears, they laid down the track ‘Up n Down’, phat disco loops fused with sick basslines cuts.

It came about from following each other musical styles for the past 10 years, and taking each others sound and wedging into one collaboration..”- N-Ton

Pick it up on Beatport

INTERVIEW.

1. How were you introduced to electronic music?

I started listening to electronic music with 13 years in the early nineties.
During this time i got really flashed by the rocking noises of 303’s and all
the other acid-machines. I bought as much records with these “new” sound
and started Djing and producing, because I felt in love with the idea of
making a record without having a band.


2. How has your music creation process developed over time? Sound like your having a lot of fun!

The creation process totally changed over the years. When I started doing electronic music, nobody used a computer. Just step-sequenced drumcomputers and synths. So, you had to finish your song before you turned of your gear because most of the machines were not able to save/store any data. Each song was a live recording. Today, the computer is almost the heart of my studio. Besides some machines I still use like the Elektron Monomachine, Roland Tr-707 and some other analog synths, everything comes into and out of the computer. So, because the ability of saving songs and total-recall, the songs get more detailed and worked out. Most of the time it’s good to work like this, but sometimes you create more “special moments” when you create the songs live.

3. Currently, who are some of your favorite artists?

I like tracks from Siriusmo, Hey Today!, Louis la Roche, Flying Lotus, Anti-Pop Consortium, Clark, Mr.Oizo, Light Year, Xinobi….


4. What is the electronic scene like in your area?

Cologne is still a little bit minimal infected which is not really my taste, but
there are some promoters starting party’s with a bigger variety. I would say the scene is not really great! 😉

5. Your “Fuck The Money EP” has just been released, how would describe this collection of songs?

The three songs should represent some styles I like. So they are not really homogenic but I think my “sound” brings them together to something that makes sense as an ep. I wanted a collection of tracks which rock at the club and also work good at home.

I’m a fan of trying nu things, so I’ll be capturing my experiences at shows/parties and sharing them with all ya’ll, here on Disco Droppings.

Big Spider’s Back – Ambient, made me know I’m a part of something huge. It was kool to hear so much sound coming out of one performer.

INTERVIEW


1. How were you two first introduced to electronic music?


We work in a record store, so that more or less presented us to a gold mine of electronic music. In the beginning we were both very much interested in so called ‘intelligent dance music’ and we still like to listen to music from artists like Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada and Autechre. Via producers like Jeff Mills, Kraftwerk, Biosphere and others we started to touch on all different grounds of electronic music.
When we began dj-ing we started with mostly electro, but through the years that changed into… well, you can call it contemporary house music.

2. The strong House vibe running through your music is superb! How has your music-making process progressed up to now?

Tom has been producing off and on since 2001. Going through different genres and styles. But dj-ing brought us to the music we produce nowadays. That’s a natural process, because the music that you play is the music that you love and, as an artist, you always try to give your own flavour to what you hear from your idols. Most of the time, you hear something amazing from another artist and you think ‘Wow, I wish I could do that too!’ Most of the time you can’t, haha. I’m not saying one tries to copy something from another artist, but it’s funny that you can make something original by pursuing an unobtainable goal.


3. How would you describe the music coming out of the Netherlands?

Well, of course there’s a lot of Dutch House coming from Holland, from the likes of Gregor Salto, Afrojack and Franky Rizardo. The funny thing is that that kind of bouncy, booty house is considered to be quite commercial in Holland. While people seem to absolutely adore it outside of our country! It probably influenced a lot of foreign artists. When we have artists over from f.i. France they always tell us Dutch House is really big there.

We ourselves have left Dutch House behind in a sense. We’re playing lots of house and tech-house stuff from producers like Tim Green, Jesse Rose, Renaissace Man, Uner & Coyu, etc.


4. What’s in the works for Homework in 2010?

We’re working on getting our original material released!
There’s been some hype surrounding our track Fissa Tune, which Brodinski seems to play in literally every set.
So expect those tracks to hit very very soon!
