Q1. How and where was the mix recorded? Could you tell us about the idea behind the mix?
 
The mix was made with records, two 1200s and mixer, recorded at 524 main st in Vancouver BC…
Not much of an idea behind the mix but techno, raw “futuristic” and cheap sampling.. as it is
 
Q2. Could you tell us about yourself and your musical background?
 
I started playing instruments and making music young and soon learned to DJ from my brother. i was making a lot of music with friends some who i still make music with. by high school i had started collecting some CDs and records, we took our grandmas turntable, then just went crazy. i was digging all types of music, making mixtapes using regular turntables or start/stop. i started making beats after i bought a destroyed 2000XL and have just been doing my thing from there.
 
Q3. Could you tell us about the club music scene in Vancouver or Canada?
 
It seems to me like Canada’s got great DIY dance culture. Maybe a slightly smaller industry and people often created their own space to party. I don’t know many legitimate clubs but these underground spots are really solid. lots of venues doing their own thing how they want with pressure but its pushed most to do great things.

Rabih

Q1. How and where was the mix recorded? Could you tell us about the idea behind the mix?
 
It was recorded in my studio in Berlin, picked the most interesting pieces I've heard recently, made a overlapping mix of different sounds and grooves to ultimately create a nice listening experience.
 
Q2. Could you tell us about the music in Lebanon?  Has the Lebanon music an impact on you?
 
There is a great amount of music coming out of Lebanon, some from the traditional side and this had an influence on my since my childhood, others are more from the avant-garde and experimental scene that is really advanced and strong, with a lot of musicians pushing the boarders and doing very interesting things.
 
Q3. Could you tell us about how is your label "Morphine Records" like? Could you tell us about the concept or policy behind the label?
 
There is no real concept or idea, it's a personal curatorial process that brings me to release music from different backgrounds, I am more willing to push new-coming and not so known musicians that make great music, it also has to be different and cross from one scene to another, in order to be part of the whole idea.
 
Q4. Could you tell us about the Japanese artists who release on "Morphine Records" in the past or upcoming? 

I recently release an album by outstanding hip-hop and spoken words artist from Tokyo, MA's music is mesmerizing and totally unique, this artist is a hidden Japanese gem and I am so happy I got to support his music and make his debut album.
 
AMA

He was also remixed by Sugai Ken, another amazing sound designer from Japan, and Contagious has a Japanese member the amazing Mieko Suzuki. Besides them there's DJ Die Soon who's coming out in February 2020 on the label, and there are more Japanese artists preparing material for Morphine as well.
 
Q5. Your music outputs in various forms have a very original and consistent view of the world.  We would like to know your input point of view. Could you tell us about what the music are you most interested in for digging currently?

I have no limitations and/or specific focus. I like to look everywhere for inspiring sounds, something that I can also work with on a sonic level, disrupt, deconstruct and maybe mix with other stuff in order to make a new thing out of it. It can be from field recordings I did or other friends of mine, or an old record or a totally new electronic piece from anywhere in the world. There is a lot of amazing music being produced in so many different places and this is very inspiring for me and the sets I play.

= INTERVIEW =
 
Q1. How and where was the mix recorded? Could you tell us about the idea behind the mix?
 
The mix was recorded live in my house during the night. The Idea is to make an eclectic mix of old and new down tempo, dubby, cosmic disco, tribal balearic music that some how resemble tropical surroundings in nature.
 
Q2. Could you tell us about yourself and your musical background?
 
I’ve been into music since I was very young. I started to play musical instruments in junior high school and start collecting music in the early 90s which had lead me to DJ-ing when I studied abroad in the US around 1997 and never stop since then. When I came back home to Jakarta around 2010, I decided to focus in producing my own music as KOMODO.
 
Q3. Could you tell us about the club music scene in Jakarta or Indonesia?
 
I think it’s divided by two scenes, the mainstream (EDM and R&B) and the underground scene.
For the past 10 years there are many new / young producers, DJs and party organizers emerging into the club music scene in Jakarta and followed by the other big cities through out Indonesia.
 
komodo  
Q4. What inspired you to start the label "Akamady Records"?
 
I started Akamady Records because I see many talented music producers in Indonesia and I wanted to be able to help them to get their music out to the music community in Indonesia and abroad.
 
Q5. What are you up to next?
 
I am scouting for new/undiscovered Indonesian dance music artists and will try to release them on my label, Akamady Records, and also working more on my own tracks.
