Inspired by his mom’s radio songs, perhaps unconsciously, Marko aka Resilient kept the sound of the 80s / 90s to this day. He didn’t grow up with vinyl and didn’t start DJing when he was 10 years old. Despite this, during his childhood he used to flee from piano accordion classes, only to compose at home. Since then, he has been in love with tremolo effects, organ synths, and vocal flaws in order to evoke the vibe of a famous “Top Gun” movie soundtrack. Member from Berlin, instead of recordings; Deep House Craft (South Africa); Based in Hamburg – Neele Records; Based in Munich: Karmaloft Music, Affect Recordings & Affekt Reaktion and also founder of Beat Sound Visions (worldwide). He is an inhabitant of the world where human dreams play a crucial role. A versatile multi-genre electronic music player.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Resilient, who debuts «Hope» on the Beat Sound Visions label, and this has been the result. Enjoy it!
Hi there ! Where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
Hello! It’s 3 PM and I am in my bed. Work in night shifts for a while and after a 6 hour sleep I’m listening to upcoming mixtape tracks in the background while answering your questions.
When did the idea of starting a project start to take shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
In the beginning I was involved in electronic music as a listener. Was on so many parties during my studies in the early 2000’s. After my economics degree I realized that I have so much creativity that I haven’t used since my childhood drawing days. So I decided to take a music journey and activate my creative spirit again!
How would you define the sound of your latest work? What is the concept behind?
The idea was to do some acid elements with bold bass lines and 80’s synths. Actually, I wanted to make a vinyl release for Nocta Numerica Records. They said that tracks are good but not for their identity, so I went with my own label. Summer 2021 gave me an emotional explosion. Based on a true (love) story. We all know how that feeling ends and I just shaped that into a sound. It was easy like a pie!
Why did you decide on that cover design?
I’m a very generous person so I decided to share some dirty laundry.
Why the name «Hope» for this new release?
Instead of ‘’Hell’’ I went with ‘’Hope’’. We are all living in limited conditions currently, in a optimistic way of thinking, this word sounds better to me.
What artists are you interested in these days?
I found myself mixing the same artists over and over again… YokoO, Death On The Balcony, Too Smooth Christ, Hammer…
For my own label ‘’Beat Sound Visions’’ I am searching for a unique underground / deep sound.
How do you manage to combine such disparate genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What do they have in common for you?
In my sets I like to play 4+ hours, beginning with electronica and breaks, through deep house in the middle phase (my cup of tea) all the way to a shaky tech house and energetic / dark melodic techno at the end. Feeling is a common word.
How would you define your sound?
Specific, emotional, true, danceable ‘’Top Gun’’ vibe.
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
In my library I have more than 20 projects, mostly in the deep house / tech house genre. After this release I will take a short break, and after that we will see where the journey goes. I just let go and catch the waves of life!
