We had the opportunity to speak with Argentinian Dj and Producer Dark Soul project and this is what he told us.
Can you tell us a little bit about your personal life?
Hi guys good day, before everything, thanks for the interview, I am glad and happy about it. About my personal life, the most important aspects I can tell you about is that I didn’t have a regular life, I had a lot of problems, I grow up in a nice family but with a lot of problems, so as I got the age of 18 I decided to have my own route live alone, and be happy. I started college I study laws. I start to go out more often and also doing the dj stuff on the side. I was always connected to art. I am a big fan of abstract & conceptual art. I also paint sometimes. I really love music, first thing I do when I wake up is turn on my computer… listen some tracks and after that I run ableton to see if I can compose something. I am a chill person and I like to share time with people I love, like my friends and family. Life is beautiful and even more with music, and if its with melodic house music, melodic techno music, its even better.
For how long have you been making music?
I don’t remember when I started. At the age of 16 I was producing on FL, but then I left it and I was more into research for the sounds I like. I started collecting music since I was 14 years old I have a lot of discs with music. A huge catalogue.
In 2009 I started to produce with an objective something more clear I learn to how sound professional, how to use the tools of the software and how to train my ears.
So I think I’ve been producing for 7 years from 2009 to now.
How do you describe your sound?
It’s difficult to describe my sound. Something that always predominates on my songs is the percussion and tribal groove with swing. Swing and groove are fundamental for me. Most of the time I produce music people can dance because first of all I am dj before a producer. Other elements you will find on my tracks are cool melodies and hypnotic sounds., I always try to learn the new production techniques and how to sound better and different, I really hate when producers do always the same sound, or sounds like other producers, is really boring.
What do you think about the “edm” movement?
I think music is a product of the society we are living, if edm is the music that most society thinks is good for them its ok. I respect the taste of others. I really don’t like most edm tracks, I think like all the music industry lost quality and we can listen it more in edm because is the style has more exposure now a days. Most tracks I think are really cheesy but I think people will get bored of it soon and they will need something better. People need more music culture. But this is something even deeper and longer to talk (he laughs).
What’s your favorite kind of music?
I like all kinds of music is difficult to choose only one, I really enjoy a good chill out, acid jazz, melodic techno, or deep house. But I always enjoy deep sounds with melodies.
What do you love the most from your country?
I love most of the things from here to he honest, except the culture of it. I really enjoy food in special “asado”. Girls here are outstanding and party animals, I think that’s the first word that appears when you look on the Internet about Argentinians. I also like Architecture here and the weather because all the year is different.
Which artists do you admire the most?
I really admire Hernan Cattaneo, I think his music selection is really good and I always fall in love with 2 or 3 tracks from his sets, Same happens to me with Sasha, Nick Warren and John Digweed, I also admire how Lee Burridge and Mathew Dekay put their sets together and the way the mix.
If you had the opportunity to change the world through music wich genre would you choose?
(he laughs) difficult question. But I think melodic tech house.
How do you see yourself in 5 years?
To be honest I don’t know what could happen in 5 years that’s the funny thing in my life (he laughs) I always change, I expect to continue working on the new label I am running with some friends, also I hope to see my friends playing with me in the future, I hope I can play in different cities and learn more music production I also want a new studio, I really need a new studio ( he laughs again), and the most important thing enjoy time with people I love, for now I can’t tell you something clear about me in 5 years. I don’t know what to say about staying in any determined place but for sure enjoying life and being happy.
From all the tracks you have had release which one is your favorite?
My favorite track is “al sur” the one I released at Nick Warren’s album ”the soundgarden”.
What’s your plan for the rest of 2016?
I expect to continue working on the label is something that I am really enjoying we are going to release some outstanding music, tracks I did from the bottom of my heart and with passion. We would like to return quality to electronic music, is difficult because most artist ask for a lot of money of fee for a track that they don’t sell that amount of money so its not easy.
