Mikhail Bessmertny aka Deep Active Sound and I have had a chat and here are a few questions and Answers..
Q..1 Where are you from?
A..I'm From Russia, town Maykop
Q...2 How did you get into music and how would you describe your music.
A...This happened about 7 years ago. Then I came across a program FL Studio. And I started making sketches of what is just for fun! So gradually I became interested in making music, and in 2009, I signed my first EP on the Russian label Newborn Records. By this time I chose the basic style Deep House. I wanted to make interesting sounds in this direction! Add more rhythmic shades and groove.
Q...3 what Music did you use to listen to when you were younger and do you think it influenced you?
A...Answer...Earlier I listened to everything. It was Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop music. Then Drum & Bass, very long time listened to Trance. I needed any time to find my style. And as a result House music became it. I was interested by all these electronic sounds which I didn't hear in other instrumental tracks. And it hooked me!
Q..4 Did you Dj first or did you start off by doing production?
A..4. Yes, at first I started to write music (This is now the main occupation for me). But after a while I started getting mails with offer to participate on events as DJ. And I realized that the production and DJing this one whole! Since then I play.
Q..5 Which do you prefer doing the most?
A..5. I love to make music of course. Every day I do something, it enhances the experience.
But there are other things! Meeting with friends, walks, trips out of town! All that can fill my life with bright moments!
Q...6 How long have you been involved in making music?.
A..6. In General, about 7 years. But professionally since 2009.
Q..7 What Type of Music Do You Produce?
A..7. Basically it's deep, but there are cases tech and progressive house.
Q..8 What labels have you worked with?
A..8. Recently there was a lot of remixes. I have worked with Giom, Rishi K., Deep Spelle, BiG Al, Onur Ozman and many others!
Q..9 What labels have you worked with?
A..9. There is quite a lot. Loco Records, Large Music, I Records, Deep Wit, UM Records, DeepClass, Disclosure Project etc.
Q..10 If you could remix a track for anyone (Artist, Performer dead or alive) who would it be?
A.10. It is difficult to say. Such artists very much! Well can something of the old tracks of the project Echomen.
Q..11 What’s your favourite track you’ve ever made yourself?
A..11 Favourite perhaps Departure, although Got U feat Lena Grig also like not less!
Q..12 What’s your Favourite Track of all time?
A.. 12. Jakatta - One Fine Day (Cicada Mix) 100%
Q.13 Who is your favourite artist that is around now?
A.13. Also it is hard to point to one of them! Everyone is good in its own way. Now I really like Audiojack, James Dexter, Giom.
Q..14 Has 2014 been a good year for you so far?
A.14. Yep. Of course
Q.15 What have you got going on at the moment?
A.15. Now I'm working on new tracks. Ahead of good releases and planned author's album!
Q..16 What have you got planned for the future, for you and the Label?
