Siriusmo : Itchy

Siriusmo offers up a taste of his upcoming LP “Enthusiast” on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown Records entitled “Itchy”. This return of Siriusmo showcases his angular synthetic funk that he is refined into a mesh of techno blips. A very interesting teaser of what is to come on this album.

Breakbot x Siriusmo

What a clash of the titans,Breakbot & Siriusmo – this remixes sounds nothing like either have produced before. A guitar based remix of a very soulful sounding track by the might Breakbot. These two should start a band or something with their immense talent. I feel that La Funk Mob will work wonders on this track with the tracks soulful vox – Zdar will strike again!

Fuck da bangers!

Chromeo x Siriusmo

Wow. The first half of this tune is super slick and Hall & Oates’ pop then it slips into this dark 8-bit arpeggiated bridge that sounds amazing LOUD. I love the bassline during the chorus. Siriusmo is too amazing.

Chromeo – Night by Night (Siriusmo Remix)

The Shoes x Primary 1 x Siriusmo

Very different production/remix style for Siriusmo – very minimal and pop. I want his remix of Chromeo’s “Night by Night”!

Asian Dan Interview: David Rubato

David Rubato is one of the most exciting producers to come out in quite a while. He adds a level of class and musicality to the ever growing genre of electronic dance music. He channels such greats as Jean Michel Jarre and Giorgio Moroder, mad scientists that twisted and turned knobs to dial in the perfect blend of sine and square waves. Circuit is one of my favorite dance tracks of the past few years. Amazing bass part and squelching synth. I cannot wait to hear more from Mr. Rubato.

Siriusmo is leading the way in the kraut dance scene and his remix of Mr. Rubato’s Circuit is further proof of his production magic. The psuedo French suave monologue kind of gets annoying

Asian Dan Interview: David Rubato
Where does the name David Rubato comes from ?

My parents named me David after Oistrakh and i picked up Rubato while joking with friends on my piano style being all about voicings.

What are your biggest influences, musical or otherwise?

My inner drive to move forward.

Could you describe your production style ? What is your main way of composition? Is the groove, bassline/drums, the first and most crucial element you work on?

I compose and produce by going back and forth between associative thinking to accumulate ideas–of objects, goals, techniques, principles etc.–and applying them with methodical attention to every detail, as I consider that all aspects and elements are decisive. I find it somehow similar to solving a puzzle: clusters happen but there’s no strict processing order. My work is done when each second of the record induces in me the exact feelings i’m after. This MO developped itself over time, partially in reaction to the early remixes i did, for Spencer&Hill and NyLon, which I don’t like at all.

Circuit is one of my favorite dance tracks I have heard in quite a few years, I know it was all a live recording with real bass and you twisting knobs on a modular synth 🙂 what was your main inspiration behind that track?

Thanks. There were two main ideas, one of which you mentioned: experimenting with real time and looking for strong sensations.

Your music is crafted and composed like composers and producers from the 70s/early 80s, are you trying to bring back that level of musicality to dance music?

I get a kick out of challenging myself, working on my skills and creating what suits my tastes. It’s an inner adventure. Curiosity for music made thirty years ago is part of that process but I don’t think in terms of “what dance music needs” and I’m not trying to bring back anything.

What is it like to be part of the Institubes family?

It’s very interesting.

What do you think is the next “big thing” in music? I feel like dance music in particular is trying to clean itself up and polish its sound, shake off all the noise and distortion that Justice started, ha.

I don’t view dance music as a unique entity trying to do one thing more than another. Individuals act based on their unique interests and desires and all possible things are happening at the same time.

Future plans for David Rubato? Releases, tours?

More music, no touring for now.
