BALANS033 - Staffan Linzatti by Darko Esser, Tripeo published on 2013/08/20 13:56:39 +0000 We got a very special podcast from our friend and BALANS artist Staffan Linzatti. The Swedish scifi producer send us a 67 minute LIVE PA instead of a DJ mix wich literally blew us away. His 'View From The Collapsing Centre EP' is off course featured in the liveset as well as material from his own Searchlights and a whole heep of unreleased material. He will perform live at our BALANS event on september the 20th @ Melkweg Amsterdam and you can expect more from Staffan on the label in the future! 1.What is your relationship with Balans? I meet Darko last summer over a coffee, and kind of hit it off straight away. We decided to do something together and everything just grew from that. We managed to meet for another coffee this summer, and I am looking forward to having yet another one with Darko in September. 2.What do you do to try and stay in balance? Any tips & secrets you would like to share with us night folks? Tough question. Record shopping, fresh air, and never being afraid of a challenge would be a good start I think -never get too comfortable to try out new things. 3.About the podcast, can you tell us the story behind the mix? This is a recording of a live-set I did a few weeks ago. The thought was to present a mix of current and future ideas, and to explore new ground for music even further out in the future. 4.What gear did you use to make the Balans podcast? My usual live-setup; A Frost audio computer, two evolution-uc33, and a novation launchpad. 5.What do you have in store for us (gigs/releases) the coming months? The fourth release on Searchlights Records was released not too long ago, as well as my first record on Balans. Right now we (me and my brother Mathias) are planning SIGHTS-005, I am working on another record for Balans, and a few other labels, as well as writing music with a good friend of mine for an exhibition of his. Basically, just spending a lot of time writing and recording music.
