Tintin (@tintinbeatz) is a Spanish veteran from Salamanca based in the city of Barcelona.
On this EP he shows off his studio skills by providing four energetic techno tracks.
The release begins with tryptamine, an adrenaline-pumping workout made of rolling baselines and metal components on a relentless rhythm.
We have had the pleasure of interviewing Tintin and this has been the result.
Hi, how are you? How did your day start?
Very good, now I live on the outskirts of Barcelona near to the sea. Here I have all my Elelekron Instruments, Synthesizers and Groovebox where I make my music.
What about the rave that interests you?
The rave has always been and will be fine one way or another.
How much have artists influenced you in your musical work?
I have been influenced by the music I listen to, especially Ebm and industrial 90s like Nitzerebb, Front 242…
How are your influences condensed on “Tryptamine” for Hxagrm Records?
Hxagrm is a label that I really like, I decided to send my «Tryptamine» EP because I really like the line of the label, there are great artists in it, they also works on vinyl as well, I thought it might fit and it has.
What was your production criteria?
I work a lot with analog instruments. I have several Elektron Synthesizers and some Groovebox.
What can you tell us about each topic?
For Tryptamine I used a Bass-Lead from my Digitone Synth, it carries FM synthesis and automations in the sequencer, Ferras is more Bell Synth style, with repetitive sequences and some Drum Noise, Undulate is quite linear, I have used Analog Four for the synth and with Behemoth I have created a sequence with a Percussive Synth with noise.
How is your work presented in the year 2022?
Well, now I have a EP on R3VOLUTION with remixes and dates to play in Barcelona.
What makes you happy?
Be hours and hours in my studio with my instruments.
