Be sure to check the whole release NOW! Digitalism - Lift EP
RELEASE DATE 20.10.2012 ON BITCLAP!
Check Vakkuum's banger 'Sonar' while reading the little Q&A we have for you!
Sonar EP comes out October 15th!
• Vakkuum – why do you call yourself like that?
Your music sounds kind of like the opposite of ‘empty of matter’
I found my name awhile back when I first got into electronic music.
I was listening to a lot of stuff from overseas (i.e. BNR, Institubes (RIP), Ed Banger)
I saw this one track by Housemeister called "Vakuum" and added the extra 'K' from there
on out it just stuck with me.
• Your ‘Sonar’ EP is out to be soon. And again, we noticed you have a special
taste when it comes to names and titles. What’s the story behind ‘Sonar’?
I've always have a hard time choosing names. Sonar came to be because of the lead synth in the track.
If you listen closely on the second buildup it has a deep underwater sound to it so I
thought it fit well.
• How would you define your EP in just three words?
High Energy Techno
• Although you’re quite new in this whole electronic scene, you quickly gained
support of some big artists, like Fake Blood, Brodinski, Boys Noize etc…
Your bomb ‘Sonar’ has already been played by Gesaffelstein at Electric Zoo
Festival and by Brodinski at the Bromance Records party…
sounds as if a huge wave of success is coming forward. What are your plans for the future?
Yeah, Its crazy to have all this happen. I've been big fans of these guys for a long time
and to have them playing my tracks is such an amazing feeling!
Right now my main focus is on my production and improving my sound.
I have a lot of new projects I'm working on that I can't wait to show everyone,
but for now they're under wraps :)
• You said you always produce better after a really good meal.
So we’re interested, what’s been the best meal you ever had?
Hm thats a tough one. I'd have to say it was this homemade pizza i made once
with prosciutto, goat cheese, garlic, and arugula. It was pretty special.
• What do you prefer, DJing or producing? Why?
Producing. I love making music and playing with different sounds for hours on end.
I'd do it all day if I could.
• What profession do you think you would have taken up if not that of a DJ/producer?
Cooking. I work in the restaurant industry now and although its high stress it's a lot
of fun, you can express your creativity in food the same way with music.
• You’ve been touring through the United States, Europe and Central America…
any favourite city to play in?
I really loved Paris and Nice. I played at this small club in Nice in the basement of this
bar called L'abat Jour. it was very underground.. rock walls and candles haha..
really great vibes and people too. also the city was beautiful!
• Electronic music – minimal or maximal?
Can't choose. I really enjoy a lot of minimal and deep house music although
what I produce and play is on the heavier techno side. I'm going to be starting
a side project soon that will be more house/deep house so be on the lookout for that
in the future!
• Vinyl or mp3?
MP3 for now. I'd love to learn how to play a vinyl set better, I've tried it out before
and love the feel of wax. As of right now I play on CDs.
• If you could only listen to one song… which one would it be?
Todd Terje - Inspector Norse. I cook my breakfast every morning to it
Thanks for taking the time!
