production skills do you think you picked up in your early career
when you moved to Japan?
living in Japan, was a huge learning curve, we went there knowing
nothing, just fiddling with machines in the stores, buying what
we thought would work for us and going from there. We knew no
one else making electronic music, so we taught ourselves.
would you describe your style and how does it reflect your surroundings?
style could be described as progressive, organic groove; we enjoy
the atmospheres and space in tracks. Because we live so far away
from the European party scene things are a little more laid back,
and I think this shows in our music.
do you write a track and have you changed your normal style to
write an album?
track is a track, we usually go through the same process no matter
what its for. We usually start with a kick and bass, the
bass takes us the longest to tune, as it is the heart of the track,
from there we build the groove around it with loops, percussion
and atmospheres. Then we arrange it. We wrote this album to a
fairly tight schedule, so the actual process of finishing one
track and then moving straight onto the next was quite exhausting.
But we also achieved some of our best work and we were happy with
the end result.
does it compare when youre playing events like the Boom
festival and Rainbow Serpent in Australia?
theres more people, theres more energy and more of
