    Q: Hello mr. Control! As one of the silent servants from the Barre Tijden collective, people might not know you so well. Could you please introduce yourself?

    A: Hi, my name is Bert and I live in Leusden, a village near Amersfoort. It's pretty quiet out here, but I like it. In the weekends I can often be found clubbing in Amsterdam where a lot of my friends reside. Earlier this year I got my bachelor in biology, now I'm taking a year off to focus on music, Barre Tijden and other things I like but couldn't find the time for. As you stated I'm mostly active behind the scenes, and I'm not al that talkative, but I don't bite, so if you want to get to know me just say hi!

    Q: You seem to te be very fond of playing and collecting vinyl? How did this come up?

    A: I think I started playing vinyl because my brother and some of my friends were into it, later I also started playing cd's, but it just never felt the same. There are a number of arguments for me to play vinyl, some practical, some more romantic. I love that turntables are mechanical, control is much more direct and delicate, the connection between me and the record I play feels much stronger this way. Besides that I just love the physics and analog sound. Of course there are also the negative aspects. Vinyl is becoming quite rare in the clubs, and promoters often think that you can just put a couple of technics on a table and everything will be alright, so bringing your cd's as a back-up is necessary. Luckily the conditions at home are fine, so the mix I recorded is strictly vinyl.

    Q: What is the idea behind this podcast you made for us?

    A: The set is pretty deep and dreamy, hence the title, I think it matches the autumn landscape. Often it's not suitable for the parties I'm playing at, so I'm glad I can play some of these lovely tunes this way.
