In addition to the previous question, how did you come up with the idea of making Phase III EP?
As explained before I’m working on remix projects strictly on vinyl, Phase III is the third vinyl that comes with four remixes of some of my hard acid techno stuff. I was very excited when I heard what they did to my music, and I think I asked the right artists to create this unique sound—this is the last one.
You also just reissued your 1993 album Muta. Are you working on a new album or any other musical project that you want to mention?
The reissue of Muta means a lot to me; I’m especially happy that it has been reprinted by a just born Roman label, Lost In It, best wishes to them. There is a long story about my entire discography, I had really negative experiences with my ex-producer Tony Verde, in fact, he keeps all my music and steals most of the earnings that come from my works—when I decided to leave the ACV label, and form mine, was like the steal of my life. I never stopped creating and evolving my mind into creation, of course, something will come from me, like my new album, which is not finished yet.
What are currently some of the most important tools and instruments you’re using?
Of course, my Roland System-100M is the one, I’m using it since the ‘90s, and it always gives me an infinite possibility to create sounds. Anyway, I’m only using analogue gear.
What are you hoping to explore in the future counting creative mediums, hobbies and other things you consider striking for you?
Now I’m into a new research, and I’m exploring the acoustic world, creating sounds by unconventional instruments to create particular sounds—ambient and grooves. This new experience is leading me into a new dimension of creating and a different approach to write music. Also, my creativity and curiosity are now in an infinite range.
Knowing that you have been part of the electronic music scene since the early days, where do you see the future of electronic music?
I notice that people are not so interested in electronic music like in the early days; it’s getting more and more difficult to see thousands of people dancing on the same dance floor. I think one of the first reasons is that people today are completely surrounded by it, so it’s not something new anymore, and the scene is saturated by the millions and millions of people who are doing music just for fun thanks to the stupid software programs available on the market, and also the way of producing music is completely changing in a bad situation, everybody feels like an artist. Especially in techno music, there are really a few artists who are doing well, and I don’t hear innovation anymore, just a copy of what was done before honestly. Personally, I think that a new revolution will come, but it needs a lot of work by us.
What is the idea behind the mix? How did you choose the records in it?
This is a 6-hour mix recorded in Berlin from one of my all night long performances.
