Our good friend from Ireland, Ian O'Donovan, is about to unleash his electro alter ego Chromezone into this world. On the 18th of june his amazing Atlantis EP will be released on Wolfskuil Ltd and includes a just as mindblowing remix from Dutch electrofunk maestro Dexter! He has made a stunning electromix for our BALANS series to emphasise his love for mechanical broken beats, melody and robotic emotions. Here's what he had to say:
01.What is you relationship with Balans?
I have been a fan of Darko's for years and he has been supporting my music since before I even had released anything. After I had released a few records I sent him a demo which I thought he would like and then released an EP on Wolfskuil in 2010. A while later, I had a sample of a new electro project on soundcould and Darko wanted to sign it straight away… and the result is the forthcoming Chromezone - Atlantis EP.
02.What do you do to try and stay in balance? Any tips & secrets you would like to share with us night folks?
I try to keep work balanced with pleasure. If I'm working hard and/or in the studio for a few days solid, I'll make sure to get out with friends or go away at the weekend if I'm not already playing somewhere. It's good to give your ears a break now and then.
03.About the podcast, can you tell us the story behind the mix?
It's a special electro mix to coincide with my upcoming Wolfskuil release. It includes the 2 original tracks from the new EP as well as new stuff from Onionboy, The Third Man, Versalife and loads more. I also included some old favorites in there too for good measure.
04.What gear did you use to make the Balans podcast?
Pioneer CDJ 1000s, Technics 2010s and an Allen & Heath Xone mixer.
05.What do you have in store for us (gigs/releases) the coming months?
Upcoming gigs in Ireland, London and more to follow.
Release wise, I have a lot of stuff coming out… releases for Wolfskuil, Inflyte, Virgin/EMI, Electronical Reeds, Eevonext and more.
Remixes coming on Rebirth, Manual, Connaisseur, System and more.
