Show 266 "Guestmix by Tension (Nulectric) [Germany]"


this week with my friend "Tension" from Bielefeld, Germany !

INTERVIEW BY MIXED APPLES

MA: Good Morning and best wishes from South Africa… Please can you introduce yourselves and tell us where are you are from?
My Name is William Gebert. I am a 25 year old producer and Dj from Bielefeld (Germany). Since 2006 I produce electronic music in various styles under my alias “Tension”. In 2009 I founded a digital label called “Nulectric Records” on which we release Deephouse music and various other styles.
MA: Can you tell us how your musical journey began?
I first came in contact with electronic music when I started to visit Techno Parties and Festivals in my former hometown. We had a very nice scene these days with various promoters and parties, thats where I started to get into the music. When I visited the last “loveparade” in Berlin in 2006, I knew that I want to go deeper into that kind of music, so I started my first productions and gigs.
MA: Who was your biggest influence when starting out?
There were some producers and djs who definately inspired me in the early beginning. Techno and Minimal was a big thing these days, so acts like Minilogue or Ricardo Villalobos gave a lot to me with their work. But of course I was also fascinated by Carl Craig, Jeff Mills, Kerri Chandler or Derrick Carter, just to name a few.
MA: Do you produce music? If so, what would you say your style is?
Yes. But I’m not focusing on a certain kind of electronic music. I would define Deephouse as my basis, but I always try to broad my horizons with trying out other genres and styles. I released some Drum & Bass, Electronica and Ambient tunes in the past for example.
MA: Can you remember your very first track/vinyl that you bought?
My first record was “Moodymann – Shades of Jae” on KDJ Records. Its a very deep and hypnotic track which is playing around with percussions and its bassdrum. I like this “jazzy” moment in this tune.
MA: What has been some of your highlights in your career?
My biggest highlight so far was a tour through South Africa in August 2013 together with Jazzman. That was a really special experience to me and my first international gig as well. It was a very nice trip where I’ve learned a lot about the country, djing and myself as well.
 MA: What dont you leave the house without?
Music.
MA: What is playing in your car right now?
In fact that I don’t own a car right now: nothing. But If I’d have one, it would the new Patten Album “Estoile Naiante” playing while I drive. Very experimental and creative stuff.
MA: What can we expect from this guest mix on the Deep Inspiration Show?
I prepared a mix of deep tracks and dubby meditations. Something to move on the dancefloor and chill on the couch as well.
MA: Anything that you are working on that we might be interested in?
Currently I am working on a remix for the UK based label “Incognitus Records”, a very nice deep and minimalitsic label. Furthermore we’re finishing our first vinyl release on Nulectric Records right now.
MA: Where can people follow you?
You can follow me on Soundcloud (soundcloud.com/tension-music) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/Tension.cycles). I also own a Bandcamp Page where I publish some of my own releases on myself (tension1.bandcamp.com).
MA: When are we seeing you in South Africa?
I hope at the end of the year. It depends on the plans our friendly promoters have there.
MA: Finally, what is the one music festival you still wish to play at one day?
I think it would be the Melt! Festival in Germany. A really impressive event with a lot of good Djs and bands I visited many times in the past. Dimensions Festival would also be nice, but thats a dream though.
Thank you to Tension for a super rad mix and for taking the time to answer these few questions.. Stay in touch with the DEEP INSPIRATION SHOW by liking the Facebook page here.

Show 260 "Guestmix by Michael Brennan [Durban, South Africa]" (3hours)





I'm happy to present this *dope* *deep* *vinyl* journey by "Michael Brennan" from Durban, South Africa. Enjoy !


Interview with Michael (by Mixed Apples SA)

MA: Good Morning bro, thanks for your time…
How’sit Nelson, likewise bro…
MA: Please can you introduce yourselves and tell us where are you from?
I’m DJ M from Durban, S.A, I’m into Deep House music and record collecting.. Started back in 2002 on a small bedroom setup and moved on to playing in clubs in 2006.
MA:  Can you give us a bit of background on how you got started in music?
I started off listening to some of my dad’s Pink Floyd albums when i was about 8, I liked the sound of the band and I think that sparked something in me musically. Particularly their use of keyboards lead to me identifying the same sound in deeper house tracks that were being produced in the 90′s. I got given a house tape by a mate when i was 10, and was quickly hooked on the sound. It was a whole lot of early Strictly Rhythm tracks from the likes of Barbara Tucker, Josh Wink, Planet Soul etc.. That lead to me actively seeking more electronic music, which arrived comfortably at Deep House.
MA: Do you only DJ? or are you involved in production too?
I’m just a DJ. I’ve never experienced the same connection with production as I have with DJing, i’m not one to force creativity, but perhaps at some point in the future…
MA: What have been your biggest influences and inspirations in your music journey thus far?
Yeah I think the biggest influences over the last few years have been DJs Ernie, Dubbyman, F-On, Jose Rico, Owen Jay, Scott Ferguson and Bryan Agent Pepper. They’ve introduced me to older house records which I’m finding is a whole other sector of house music to explore. Growing up it was local Durban DJs Mimi Kesaris, St Nick, Steve Roets and the rest of the TILT crew.
MA: How would you describe your DJ style? 
It’s… deep? Haha, it is definitely more ‘house’ influenced, and by that I mean in the classic sense. Bass and drums are important in my sets so I tend to seek tracks with depth.. Origin wise a blend somewhere between chicago and detroit sounds, pitch usually riding low.
MA: What has you most excited about the local music scene at the moment?
I think the movements that are forming across S.A are great, Avant Garde, Plastic People, Raw Groove, Loki, Alpha House etc. The reception is great playing to clued up crowds. The vinyl nights are cool too, its showing people another means of DJing. Plastic People’s booth standard Urei rotary is getting put to good use on such a platform, the whole rotary concept is a relatively unexplored market in S.A so its cool to gain some experience on the medium. It’s great to have the overseas guys coming over in such abundance. I’m hoping this will at some point lead to the more underground internationals coming over. I think they’re bigger than they realise in S.A.
MA: What has been some of your highlights as a DJ?
The TILT days were a big highlight. Loud sound system, wooden dancefloor and up for it crowd on Fridays were unforgettable. The club inspired me to want my own one day. The recent resurgance of vinyl has also been a highlight for me, i think we’re moving forward.
MA: What dont you leave the house without?
Ipod. It gets well used.
MA: What is your hottest track at the moment?
At the moment I’d say Owen Jay & Melchoir Sultana ‘Memento’.
MA: What can we expect from this guest mix on the Deep Inspiration Show?
Some new stuff and some old stuff rubbing up against each other, here and there. It’s a 3 hour journey through my favorite records over the last year. Features tracks by Rick Wilhite/Theo Parrish, James Duncan, Kez YM, Ron Trent and Chez Damier.
MA: Anything that you are working on that we might be interested in?
Currently looking into reel to reel recorders to start recording mixes on tape. Something to look forward to in future :)
MA: Where can people follow you?
I’m mainly active on facebook
 
MA:  Finally, what is the one music festival you still wish to play at one day?
I’ll wait and see where the wind takes me ;)
