Zimmer – Interview

 
Since we opened this blog about one year ago we could watch narrowly the development of the sound and sets by parisian producer and DJ Zimmer. Fascinated by his music we had a lot of posts of him and so we are looking forward to have Zimmer back in Berlin on december 1st. Playing at Berlin´s Klub International with BELL BIV LAEVOE`s LA Schmock, it`s time to bring Zimmer`s so his unique brand of Horizontal Disco sound to Berlin for this one night.

While Zimmer is touring his US-Tour this fall we had the chance to ask him some questions about the way his career grew the last year, his relation to Berlin, his label plus a lot more. And we are pleased to got some interesting and exciting answers. Read it below.
 

BELL BIV LAEVOE: One year ago you lived in Berlin and accidentally we met after a concert of Anoraak. I told you how excited I was about your track „Cruisin“. Some weeks later you released your „Horizontal Disco“ E.P. on D.I.S.C.O.T.E.X.A.S. How much changed your career-life since that time?

Zimmer: Things have changed a lot! Music has become probably the most important thing in my daily life. I’m touring a lot, and studio sessions are filled with datelines. Also, I never thought of my self as a real musician back in these days. I didn’t think it could be a job. Now it’s became my career, and it’s great ! One thing hasn’t changed though, my love for disco music!
 

What was your motivation to live in Berlin and how influenced it the sound of your productions and DJ-Sets?

I was always very attracted by Berlin, because it’s a city that’s chaging a lot, there’s a lot of energy. I had the opportunity to live there last year as I worked for Native Instruments. It was a great period of my life. In terms of influence, I really understood what „deep“ means. This has translated in my DJ sets a lot, and quite a few of my productions have been influenced by the sound of Berlin, like my new remix for Eskimo.
 

You play a lot in France and also in other many places worldwide and you also know Berlin. What`s special in Berlin and is there something about Berlin where it should have a more open mind in the electronic music-scene?

I love Berlin, but it’s true the city is pretty restricted to techno and deep house. On one hand it’s great, because Berlin feels like the capital of this sound. It’s great for a musical scene to have one place where you feel this sort of energy. On the other hand, I wish the nightlife music was a little more diverse. I’m excited to bring Horizontal Disco to Berlin!
 

What do you think will be progress in the electronic-disco music? After we had a lot of 80ies influences the last years it seems the tendency now turns into the early 90ies house-classics. Is that appealing you in your music or do you just don`t care about such trend-snapshots?

I try not to follow these trends. Of course I’m always a bit influenced by trends in my DJ selection. Production wise, I’m just doing my thing. It feels like a lot of the new 90s influenced house sounds a lot the same : a groovy bass and R&b vocals. It’s never good when something becomes a formula. Even though house is bigger every day, I think nu disco will keep appealing to a growing number of people.
 

You are signed on D.I.S.C.O.T.E.X.A.S. The Label always seems like a big family of creative heads. Is that a benefit for your music to have all these talented guys around you or is everyone just simply doing his thing?

It’s a benefit for sure. I get a lot of advice from Luis (Moullinex) and Bruno (Xinobi). Even though we don’t see each other often because of the distance (paris/Lisbon), I feel connected to these guys. We share the same tastes and work ethic. And each time we get to play together, we always play back to back and have a wild party!
 

We are big fans of Justin Faust. Are there plans to have a remix by him or will you remix some of his forthcoming tunes?

I love his sound too ! No remix for him planned, but could be an idea sometime in the future. I’m finishing a remix for another discotexas artist though : Kamp.
 

Leave the music behind you, if that is even possible, what do you like to do on a free day?

I wish I’ll never have to leave music! Otherwise, I love photography and graphical art. I also would like to get into sports. Musicians are always super lazy.

Thank you!

Xinobi is here and he`s hating the sound of guitars. So he doing very well with this and so Xinobi is giving us an excellent club-hit for this autumn.

Mirror People – Kaleidoscope


 
„Kaleidoscope“ is the second single of Mirror People on Discotexas, after last years “Feel The Need” (with Rowetta of Happy Mondays fame on vocals).

„Kaleidoscope“ explores a different direction from the previous „Feel The Need“. It’s an instrumental dance floor jam, with a solid beat, some looping and some psychedelic elements. As the B side there’s a remix by Xinobi, adding to „Kaleidoscope“ a hint of house and a slice of italo disco.

Mirror People has releases 12” on Permant Vacation, Hands of Time, Bear Funk and Discotexas. He also had his tracks remixed by Jacques Renault, Greg Wilson, Munk, Social Disco Club, Moullinex, Severino Horse Meat Disco among others. In addition he remixed Munk, Mario Basanov, Appaloosa, Adamski, Lazydisco, The KDMS and others…

Rebeka: „Stars“


 
So in this week BELL BIV LAEVOE Blog had a a lot work to do and there wasn´t enough time to give you all the news we wanted to give you about great brand new releases. But now we are back and here is one release by our favourite DISCOTEXAS Label. It`s Rebeka and their E.P. „Stars“ and it`s out today.

Rebeka is an experimental pop phenomenon that the grapevine has been buzzing with even before their first official release.

And it all boils down to the explosive duet between a charismatic vocalist, Iwona Skwarek, and a compelling producer, Bartosz Szczesny. Homebrew disco, Chinese techno cooked up on a vintage keyboard bestowed eons of time ago at The First Communion.

This gifted twosome of an emerging generation is not to be limited to any musical boundaries. „The laser versus the axe,“ as they say of their music. „It won’t be disco, rather resounding brass and diamonds.“

„Stars“ was mixed by Mirror People, who also did a club mix. Punks Jump Up delivered two remixes and Discotexas made an accoustic version!
