DISCOLYPSO QUESTIONNAIRE

DISCOLYPSO QUESTIONNAIRE


Tell us about an important early musical experience.

Finding a Kinks CD and discovering head banging of my own accord, age 8.


What was your first musical composition, edit or remix?

Me and my brother formed a Metallica covers band and performed at the talent show in the local church. The priest got in the mosh pit.

What was the first record you can remember buying?

Not sure exactly what it was, but various Drum & Bass 12”s from from the Legendary Black Market Records which was located in a dark basement in Soho. Probably Calibre or Marcus Intalex.

If you could have the audio stems to any track what would it be?

Chic – Good Times, and I have them mwuhaha!

If money and death was not a factor - who would play at your wedding or birthday - both live acts and djs?

Ha. What a glorious question. Let’s do Something old, Something new, Something borrowed and Something Blue. In that order: Steve Monite… His music is almost as infectious as his smile (See ‘Only You’ album cover) The inimitable Khruangbin, I’d borrow Harvey’s USB’s and let my friends have at ‘em Something Blue would be New Order playing …you guessed it.

If money and death was not a factor - who would play at your wedding or birthday - both live acts and djs?

If you could ask any musician alive or dead one question, what would it be?

I don’t think any single answer or could give me the wisdom or insight that I’d like to garner from this certain individuals that come to mind. So I’d probably just ask Daft Punk why the feck the never played live.

What song do you put on when you wake up or need to get cracking on with the day?

Not as much for cracking on as easing in, I had the Studio1 VA ‘Studio One Groups’ that was on the turntable for about a year. Best possible way to start the day.

Which acts are really exciting you at the moment?

Altin Gun have it all. Great songs, musical virtuosity, 70s synths, nice scarves. On the electronic side, you can’t beat watching Kink make better music than most with 2 synths and a drum machine in a pink T-shirt with a care bear on it

What do you wish we had more of in the electronic music scene?

Difficult question. On one hand I think everything is currently being fulfilled in some way or another on the underground. But for bigger artists, I’d like to see more experimentation, risk taking and more fusion …at the risk of sounding curmudgeonly.

If you had a time travel machine - where would you go to?

 

Fela’s Club ‘The Shrine’ in the early 80s 



Three albums everyone should hear once?

 

Talking Heads – Remain in Light, Bruce Haack ‘Farad: The electric Voice’ and The Africa 100 Compilation
