B-liv can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hi guys first of all thank you so much for the interview, and of course it would be a pleasure to tell you a little bit about my life… i have 5 different kind of passions, my family, my little cat, my music, my record labels and my job as a publicist. i always divide my life in those 5 things, I’ve been living in Mexico for the last 11 years it’s amazing i am really grateful to be here, a country with great opportunities, i’ve met a lot of people and made a bunch of new friends… also is a really cool place in for the music industry.

How does it fell to see your music in the tops of Traxsource charts?

It is an indescribable pleasure, like when you were at school and getting A+ in your grades, it’s really cool to finish a track and sign it with a label and when you see it in the charts it feels like wining a gold medal (he laughs) or something like that, is not only your inner voice that says you’ve been doing really good on this it’s also some other peoples voice the ones who believes in your work and support your work, i just released my track “Get back to me/For this” with the legendary label from NYC  King Street and it’s been already in 5 different charts! Deep Essentials, House Essentials, Hype Chart, Top 100 & Weekend Weapons.

What does amateur producers need to make high quality music like you do?

Thank you so much for the compliment, i don’t know if i am on that level yet, but what i am really sure about it that you gotta work really hard to accomplish that, also you gotta be honest and humble, there’s a point in life when you gotta pick up what you’ve been planting.

Do you think you are the best dj in Mexico?

That’s a question full of vanity, i don’t know, some people thinks i am, a lot of people thinks i am not, but what i can say is that if i wasn’t B-liv and somebody buys a ticket and invites me to go i will definitely say yes.

We knew you has the opportunity to play at the Winter Music Conference… tell us a little bit about your experience.

I learned a lot from WMC, this will be the fifth consecutive year that i attend and every year is more exiting, when you are there people threats you really good, you can fell the good vibe coming from everybody, doesn’t matter if you are an artist, people there is really down to earth, you can make good networking as well, you are able to hear new sounds, most of the Dj’s take their music with them, and a bunch of people wants to hear your dj sets… and see what’s your proposal.

What is the plan for B-liv for the rest of the year?

I have a lot, most of them with some tracks i want to release, keep on working on my new label (My Own Beat) keep on working really hard as an artist. Also the plan is to find a great booking agency to help me grow as an artist at a higher level. Unfortunately we don’t have that in Latin America not even in Mexico, there’s no booking agencies interested im promote underground talent in Latin America.

Would be cool to find a booking agency that really helps, not those booking agencies created by Dj’s to promote themselves, we need agencies   that really know the business in the music industry but it’s really hard to find something like that you gotta go to USA or Europe to find it.

Q&A With Dark Soul Project

DARK SOUL PROJECT

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.

With a short but a successful career he tell us that there still a long way to go and this is barely the beginning.

 

Infex can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I was born and raised in Mexico City,  I think I never liked school I was always distracted  or drawing while teachers were doing the explanations. I was a weird kid with curly hair (he laughs) I used to hate my hair.

How did you discovered your passion for music?

I don’t know, I guess it happened when I was around 5 years old, I remember my sister listening a bunch of reggae and dance music.

Of course i do, I have a bunch of influence thanks to them, I would like to say Corona, UB40, Inner Circle & Haddaway.

How did it happen that you began playing at fashion shows?

I was looking for an opportunity to show the world what I could do, there was a fashion event to raise funds for children in need in El Salvador, I remember I contacted one of the designers I sent her a demo and she felt in love with my sounds so they gave me green light to play at this event called “Latinos con corazon” which it took place at “Cicada” in Downtown L.A a bunch of Latin celebrities showed up that night they also had a red carpet so that’s how everything happened.

What would be the most important event in which you’ve played?

I think all of them are important to me, I have done a lot.

Can you mention some of your favorite places in with you’ve played?

I would like to say Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel in Hollywood, The rooftop of Ten Ten Wilshire in Downtown L.A, Beso in Hollywood And the Penthouse of Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.
