BALANS011 - Ferdi Blankena by Darko Esser, Tripeo published on 2012/01/28 10:48:40 +0000 Up next is Wolfskuil Ltd recording artist Ferdi Blankena from Holland. Ferdi had a huuuuuge hit in 2010 with 'Mother's Son' wich recently got featured on DJ T.'s prestigious 'United Under The Ball - 30 Years Of Disco' compilation. He made a dark and sexy mix for us, wich we are proud to present to you. Enjoy! As always we had a brief chat with the talented musician: 01.What is you relationship with Balans? My relationship with Balans is that I played twice (dj) at a Balans event. I've released at Wolfskuil Records. And i really dig the Balans label, some really fine music is released so far! 02.What do you do to try and stay in balance? Any tips & secrets you would like to share with us night folks? My trick is to keep busy with music, as long as I spend a lot of my time in my own music world, I'm in Balance!And another one is that I try to travel Asia every year. Whenever I'm in Asia, I'm in Balance. 03.About the podcast, can you tell us the story behind the mix? I wanted to let people hear my more darker side. People know me from my more housey dj sets and I tried to put in some darker records that were in my bag the past year. 04.What gear did you use to make the Balans podcast? Two SL1200, one CDJ-800 and a Xone22. 05. What do you have in store for us (gigs/releases) the coming months? The big thing for me this year is that I start my own label, together with a good friend of mine Tim Woestenenk. So there will be a release from myself this year on my own label! Really looking forward to this and I enjoy it all ready. Some nice dj gigs coming up: 4 February at Have an Ice Day in Nijmegen. And 11 February Voltt at Paradiso Amsterdam.
