Yet Records brings us Helmut Dubnitzky back with his maxi single «Let The Freaks»!!
In the original cut we have a minimalist theme with a soft base and continuous melodies that rise and fall to make you fall into the trap. Helmut knows very well what he must do to get inside you, he is a master.
In the remix, Marco Resmann presents us with a super avant-garde version with a very serious and underground base accompanied by an impressive melody that leaves you completely speechless, all enhanced by the multiple automations and mystical effects.
We have had the pleasure of interviewing Helmut Dubnitzky and this has been the result.
What has been your musical training, self-taught, schooled or not?
A mix of both. I played the trumpet as a child, and the piano came much later. In addition, I learned to be a sound engineer and continued to educate myself with courses, books, etc. I think it is a neverending story.
Can you remember a key moment that made you want to take music seriously?
After I started Dj ing for some time. I feel this is what i want. But then I had to learn how to actually make this electronic music
The first record that really turned you on to electronic music?
I am not shure but i think it was the longplayer from Dj Hell „Munich Machine“ or from Chemical Brother „ Exit Planet Dust“
Instead of focusing on a specific sound, is there a key principle or philosophy that drives you as a producer?
The drive for perfection. Which is actually just utopian. But it is always an incentive.
Where do you get your inspiration from outside of music?
From nature, feelings, art
How do you feel about releasing on a label like Yet?
It's a cool label and looks more like family. With good artists and I'm happy to be part of the family :) What do you want to convey with your latest work? Can you tell us about each track? What inspired you to create them?
“Let the Freak" has a freaky melody that tries to break free yet remains hynotic. Contrasting elements that belong together. "Let the Freak”
Have there been people or groups that have empowered you or helped you find your way as individual producers?
Yes, friends, artists, fans and of course the people at the club who believed in me. Thanks
In an overly saturated market, how would you advise someone looking to express themselves creatively in music culture?
Be yourself. Do your thing. Believe in you. Don't give up and keep working on yourself
What is the biggest challenge you face as producers?
Always reinventing yourself. Dare something. Break out of the pattern x
And what is your greatest source of optimism or inner strength?
The feeling for the music
What goals have you set for yourself this year?
I'm currently working on my third album.
What is coming this year for you that excites you?
I hope to play more clubs again or to present my new live act. If you had one piece of advice for people starting to consider a career in dance music, what would it be? Be yourself. Do your thing. Believe in you. Don't give up and keep working on yourself Last set that really impressed you? I think it was a set from Stimming Last record you bought? Jimi Jules + The best thing about working in music? You meet interesting people. Stays open The most difficult challenge of working in music? To assert oneself through the whole jungle of music to be heard Biggest disappointment in your career? How did you get over that? Not yet in the labels where you see yourself. Get up, go on, do your thing. Maybe it's not all that important. It is important that you stand behind it. Who has been the most inspiring person you have worked with? I like working with very good friends. Where the chemistry fits. Complement each other well and you don't have to argue about art. For example Jackspot or Rigth On Is there an open door for the disadvantaged? I think yes Who should we interview next? Planet Earth ;) Can you tell us about your present and future projects? I think my third album will come out this year. Before that comes an E.P. on "Brise Records", a remix for Arteforma on the label "Bunte Kuh" and another remix for Phill Kullnig on "Brise Records". Oh yes and another release on "Muna" together with Jackspot. I also think that I'll be on the road more often as Helmut Dubnitzky's "Live Act". And finally, going back in time, what advice would you give your younger self before starting to pursue music? Please keep enjoying the music and stay focused www.yetrecords.com
