Pablo Marco (Cadenza Lab/ VIVa Music/ Low to high) Q&A

pablomarcoYour excellent new single: Deja Vu (with Hash Hendrex) is coming out on Luciano’s Cadenza Lab. How did the relationship with the label, and Hash Hendrex, happen?

Well my relation with Cadenza started right when I when to London to study sound, I discover the Blind Behaviour of Luciano in Peacefrog and it did really inspire me,, then Cadenza came out, was one of my main influences, with Ricardo, in the techno side and electronic..
Hash I meet her in London a few years ago, randomly at my friend’s house, we had a particular connection and since then it has been like an intense and unique experience 🙂

At over ten minutes long: Time is a brave arrangement and one that works particularly well. Can you talk us through the process of producing the track, and what inspired it?

Actually happen quite quick. Was a kind of emotional process, like the peace after the storm of a history. I had my studio overlooking the sea, like right on the top of the water (As u can hear is kind of aquatic, like being in a boat somehow), was amazing,, plus I had all this positive feelings in my mind, and I made it in a few hours 🙂

I get like taken by the energy of the tune and I do forget about the world when I am working in something I love.

How did you first get into Dance music, who initially inspired you?

I been a big music lover since I can remember. I played classical guitar since I am 7 and l listen to Classical, Heavy Metal, Rock, Punk, Reggae and Electronic since I was very young too. I remember before going to bed when I was a kid I could get my headphones on till very late and listen to the radio, at this late time dance music programs, and I remember hearing the hit The Night Train at the radio when I was very young,, later the first band really hitting me into electronics was Depeche Mode,, my friend woke me up with a Banger of Depech when we were in one of this Camping summer things, being a Teen and it did blew my mind….

After I started partying and electronic music House and Techno became like my priority, here is when I discover Telefon Tel Aviv, Luciano, Ricardo, Herbert, Isolee, Juan Atkins, Saunderson, and many more artists.

You are about to start a summer tour beginning in Columbia at Low to high, and then onto Ibiza. Do you fell that Dance music is now a global language, and how would you define what is ‘underground’ music in 2015?

Yes, very happy to go to Colombia,, my first time there and I must say my favorite dancers came from this country,, ………………………..And yeah music doesn’t need to use words 🙂 is an universal language,, that’s why is special.

Underground, is a paradoxical term. I think underground should be Overground but the masses are not use to pure art, their ears and eyes are not use to it so it can’t sell so much as mainstream, or get to so many people. Something actually Luciano, Richie and a few others did quite good was bringing the underground to the over ground, I mean for many people and that’s really good. The problem is that when u are a pure underground artist and suddenly you became huge,, is not easy to balance cause u have too many people and energy around u telling: oh is better if play this or that and underground can get easily distracted,, is just human. But yeah is anyhow a quite complex matter and I guess not easy to balance as an artist when making music,, is like a choice,, u can choose to make music like David Guetta, use the same formula and get super commercial, but yeah I guess is mainly doing something with a non-commercial aim what keep things true and underground, like just for the pure love of doing it, but by no means I try to do underground or no underground music, I like good music and innovation, to surprise myself and get Goosebumps. But yeah the paradox is when u play underground music for millions of people and is a super production. Is that underground anymore? Anyhow, I think the most people gets the better!!

Can you tell us about any projects that you are involved in that exist outside of nightclubs?

I had a few, like with Heart in Ibiza but I don’t have time cause I’m really focused on my own projects (all these projects require a lot of time ) that actually lately are all dance music. I am opening a Label so for this, all the gigs, eps I need to finish for other labels etc is keeping me busy enough 🙂 I am always open to new experiences though.

What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Well my goal when I started making my own music was traveling the world sharing the love and opening minds,, and yeah still is 🙂 Playing for bigger crowds, new Places and with different artists I can learn from are in My Mind. Actually I did a little course of Percussion in Cuba a few years ago and I would love to find time in 2015 to go there and learn a bit more Before Cuba is totally changed.

Guido Schneider & Jens Bond
Here I Am
Cadenza Lab

CAL018This delicious, brooding production from Guido Schneider & Jens Bond is little short of outstanding. Not only do the intriguing electronic rhythms captivate your attention creating a hypnotic, inviting soundscape but with the addition of commanding voice, trumpet and timbale the picture is warmly complimented by the human touch. Another first rate piece of music from the Cadenza stable. Planet E’s Monty Luke then remixes the title track with pulsating drums, acid styled bass and squelchy keys. The likewise excellent Flags Of Peace, finishes with punchy instrumentation featuring infectious organ stabs, spacey effects, flourishes of Balearic guitar and a spoken message that will surely resonate throughout the summer…

release: June 10

Julien Chaptal & Lauhaus - Jujuman digital.inddJulien Chaptal & Lauhaus challenging collage of sounds fly high along the lines of tribal and hypnosis. It’s a deeply intoxicating blend of slightly unsettling moods coupled with dark, pulsating rhythms and striking sound effects firing off in all directions, with the relief of subtle melody only occurring via moody synths some six minutes in. Franck Roger’s Remix as you would expect adds quality House bass to the equation while supplying his own take on the effects with as usual inspired consequences. Second and equally good is, Watching You which supplies sleazy suggestion vocally running alongside various Acid tweaks and building layers of percussion.

Planet Brooklyn
One Records

ONE032-ARTWORKAnother great release from One records this time seeing the label explore seductive possibilities by Frenchmen Yamen & EDA. You could describe this as very late night or illicitly early morning depending on your sense of time but either way this excellent production simmers with low-slung tension. Powered by throbbing bass and tough percussion this features an entrancing monologue playing alongside the whirring instrumentation. Remixes come from Shaun Reeves, Jay Haze & Bill Patrick who pick up the tempo as they inject twisted electronics into the mix while concentrating on the Rap part of the vocal. Next, All Out continues the tension with deep beats and echoed stabs giving it all spacey far flung quality. The Subb-an 5am Remix completes with an all out Techno assault that spins an invigorating basslines against quick-fire drums.
