” Če bi se lahko s časovnim strojem popeljal v preteklost, bi si najraje želel ogledati nastop Deee-Lite na Montreux Jazz festivalu.”

SLO: Achim Brandenburg aka Prosumer je glasbeni producent in DJ iz Nemčije, ki je rezidenco v Berghainu zamenjal za malo bolj tihi škotski Edinburg. Polno zaposlen s festivali in nastopi po celem svetu širi svojo ljubezen do house glasbe, poleg tega ima svojo radijsko oddajo, kdaj pa kdaj pa izda tudi kakšno glasbeno ploščo. Če bi lahko zavrtel čas nazaj, bi si definitivno ogledal nastop Deee-Lite na Montreux Jazz festivalu.

ANG: Achim Brandenburg aka Prosumer is a music producer and DJ from Germany, who has replaced hid residency in Berghain for a little more quiet Edinburgh. Busy with festivals and performances, he spreading his love of house music all over the world. He has also his own radio show and from time to time he produces a some music record. If he could turn back time, he would definitely be at the performance by Deee-Lite at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

SLO: Živijo Achim, kaj si počel v zadnjem času?
Predvsem veliko potujem. Poletje imam precej zasedeno, veliko festivalov in hkrati nastopov v klubih. Skoraj cel teden sem preživel na Glastonburyju, kjer sem kljub ogromnemu blatu imel lepo. V zadnjih dveh tednih sem bil dvakrat v ZDA in prišel nazaj na festivale na Hrvaško. Zelo malo časa preživim doma, in še takrat perem perilo, pakiram kovčke in snemam svojo NTS radijsko oddajo.

ENG: Hi Achim, what have you been up to recently?
Lots of travelling mainly. My summer is pretty busy, lots of festivals going on plus the usual club gigs. I spend almost a week in Glastonbury, so much mud but such a good time. Went to the US twice in the last weeks and also came back to Croatia for the festivals there. I did not get to spend much time at home, most of it was doing laundry, repacking my bags and recording my NTS radio show.

SLO: Kaj bi porekel na razvoj elektronske glasbe v Edinburgu, kjer sedaj živiš in produciraš?
Glede na velikost mesta Edinburg, je scena presenetljivo zdrava. Čutim, da karkoli je zunaj velikih centrov, kot sta London ali Berlin, trpi. V Edinburgu nimam veliko priložnosti iti ven, vendar line-upe, ki jih zasledim v klubih zgledajo navdihnjeni in hkrati navdihujoči. Glasbene izdaje kot je zadnji Linkwoodov album ali zadnja produkcija Neila Landstrumma, kažejo na to, da je Edinburg dober kraj, kjer lahko ostaneš zvest svojemu zvoku in ga hkrati izboljšati.

ENG: Living and producing music in Edinburg, how would you say the electronic music scene is developing there?
Given the size of Edinburgh, the scene is surprisingly healthy. I have the feeling that everywhere outside of the big centres like London or Berlin, is suffering. I don’t get a chance to go out in Edinburgh much but the lineups I see at clubs look inspiring and inspired. Releases like the last Linkwood album or recent Neil Landstrumm productions show that Edinburgh seems to be a good place to stay true to your sound and at the same time elevate it.

SLO: Če bi se lahko s časovnim strojem popeljal v preteklost, kje in kdaj bi si želel živeti?
Veliko je krajev, ki bi jih rad obiskal, na vrhu seznama pa je nastop Deee-Lite na Montreux Jazz festivalu. Sicer pa nebi želel živeti v drugem času. V najboljših časih se počutim nesinhronega s svetom, kar bi bilo veliko slabše, če bi živel enkrat v preteklosti. Trenutno je to zastrašujoče in depresivno, ampak hkrati vemo danes veliko več, kot smo vedeli leta nazaj. In nikoli ne moremo iti čez to.

ENG: Let’s say you could take a time machine into the past, when and where would you like to live?
I know plenty destinations I would love to visit, on top of the list would be the performance by Deee-Lite at the Montreux Jazz Festival. I would not want to live at a different time though. I feel out of sync with the world at the best of times, that would be much worse if I lived in a time that would be in my past. It is scary and depressing times at the moment but at the same time we know so much more now than we did years ago and you can never go back from that.
SLO: Kaj je poleg glasbe tvoja največja strast?
Doživeti življenje ali se učiti. Tako sem hvaležen za vse kar imam priložnost doživeti, se naučiti ali videti. To se mi zdi zelo koristno, je darilo, ki mi omogoča rast.

ENG: Besides music, what’s your biggest passion?
Experiencing life or learning. I am so grateful for everything I get to experience, learn and see. I find that very rewarding, it is such a gift that I am allowed to grow.

SLO: Kateri glasbeni festival ti je bil do sedaj najljubši in zakaj?
Težko se odločim samo za enega. Različne festivale bi izbral iz različnih razlogov. Svoboda pri Block9 na Glastonburyju je neprekosljiva, prav tako Hrvaška pokrajina. Vesel sem, da imam priložnost nastopiti na številnih festivalih, kjer je množica vesela in ti daje občutek ljubezni.

ENG: Which music festival has been your personal favorite so far and why?
It is hard to single one out here. There’s different ones for different reasons. The freedom of Block9 at Glastonbury is unrivalled, so is the scenery in Croatia. I am happy to say that I got to play a lot of festivals with a happy crowd where you feel the love.

SLO: V The Garden Tisnu, na Hrvaškem nastopaš zdaj že šesto leto zapored, tokrat te poslušamo na SunceBeatu. Kakšni so tvoji občutki ob festivalu?
Trenutno sem tukaj v Tisnu in moram reči, da je čudovito. Takšna velika mešanica ljudi, toliko nasmehov. Definitivno starejša populacija, kot je značilna za povprečni festival. Malo bolj nežna, ampak ti daje občutek kot, da si del družine. Ljudje so veseli, uživajo na lepi lokaciji ob odlični glasbi.

ENG: You are performing in The Garden Tisno in Croatia for sixth year in a row now, this year we are looking forward to see you at SunceBeat. How does it feels to be on a festival like this?
I am there right now and it is wonderful. Such a great mix of people, so many smiles. Definitely an older crowd than your average festival, it is a bit more gentle but has a very very strong family-feel to it. People are just happy, enjoying the beautiful location and great music.

 

SLO: Eden izmed tvojih zadnjih del je bil remiks Tigove uspešnice ‘Make me fall in love’. Ali nam lahko zaupaš kakšni so tvoji plani v prihodnje? Načrtuješ kakšne nove izdaje/sodelovanja?
Trenutno delam en glasbeni remiks, vendar tega pred izdajo ne želim razkrivati, saj prinaša smolo.

ENG: One of your latest work was Tiga’s remix of ‘Make me fall in love’. Can you tell us some details about some new music releases or collaborations you’re planning to do in the near future?
I am working on a remix at the moment but you don’t talk about things before the released, it is bad luck.
