BALANS021 - Applescal by Darko Esser, Tripeo published on 2012/09/10 08:30:55 +0000 After a nice and calm holiday break, we are back in full effect for the new season! First up is mr Applescal, the Dutch melody meister who released 2 fantastic albums on Traum Schallplatten en is working on number 3 as we speak. He recently reworked Arjuna Schiks summer anthem 'Hua Hun' on Wolfskuil Records, recreating this epic tune with his own distinct sound signature. For his BALANS mix he goes in deep, melodic and emotionridden. A great soundtrack while we are heading for the fall. We asked him a few questions: What is your relationship with Balans? I know Darko for a while now from parties in Nijmegen. What do you do to try and stay in balance? Any tips & secrets you would like to share with us night folks? Go out for a walk sometimes. About the podcast, can you tell us the story behind the mix? I try to take the listener on a journey through different genres. All tracks are in the same mood and vibe though. I also did some special edits for this set. Lorca vs. Gidge, Kink vs. Axel Helios and Mig Dfoe vs. Jack Dixon. What gear did you use to make the Balans podcast? Just Ableton What do you have in store for us (gigs/releases) the coming months? My album comes out early 2013. Also keep an eye on www.rtfkt.net, a project i'm involved with.
