Superlounge (Culprit) Q&A

superYour excellent new single Ghost of Time is the Superlounge debut on Culprit. How did the relationship with the label come about?

We have been updating him with new productions from time to time. We are really happy to make it onto the label with this EP. The perfect home for the tracks.

Can you talk us through how you produced one of the tracks on the release?

As we’re normally talking about the A Side, we will take the B Side this time. It’s really basic stripped down track we produced with Ableton and Arturia Software without any special tricks. It’s the voice of Forrest which gives the track a special vibe. We already worked with him in the past and he never disappoints. It’s always a pleasure to work with him.

Both tracks feature vocalists. What importance do you place on vocals in Dance Music compared with its other elements?

We really like to work with vocalists, it makes the music more special and keeps the track more interesting. You can always create a certain vibe by using vocals in electronic music. But it’s not a must for us to have vocals on a track. You can get the same feeling with a good arrangement and sound design without using vocals.

Who would you count as your biggest influences from Dance music and beyond?

Our interest in electronic music started very late and was only about the music itself .There was so much good music out in the late 90’s that we started to collect vinyl. We got more inspired by the whole thing without knowing the people behind it. I remember tapes from DJs like Sasha, John Digweed and Danny Tenaglia who influenced us to start mixing.

How would you describe the electronic music scene in Dusseldorf where you are based, any favourite Clubs etc?

We don’t really have a big scene here, as Düsseldorf isn’t that big. But one club called 102 is doing a great job in bringing international DJs to Düsseldorf. During Summer Loco Dice is hosting a weekly Sunday Open Air Party with the biggest names on the scene. Really worth to check if you are here in summer

Where can people get to hear you play next?

You can hear us play next in cities like Istanbul, The Hague, Timisoara, Cairo, Copenhagen and of course, in Düsseldorf just to name a few.
