Some insights with…RA

Who don’t need some ideas to inspire, to keep moving and follow up the stairs?
Well, i need. See new things to re-think, to re-shape my performance with tendencies, with creativity and originality. The other artists that have structure help me to do that.
I hope that with you too.
I drop here some fresh videos of Resident Advisor covering some great artists.
Until next time,

Inspirational Moments

Some videos to inspire, expand and absorb energy.
SD love,

Kink Vs. Sierra Sam

Bulgarian producer and outboard gear junky KiNK recently teamed up with likeminded Belgian producer Sierra Sam in Berlin’s famed Watergate club for an exclusive improvised live set.


“I really am a fan of originality. It is quite noticeable with transistors. Even transistors that have been built for twenty, thirty years and are still being built, that have the same name and suffix and the same values, they sound different.”

Leaf Audio

a Leipzig-based audio production company, demonstrates the art of building your own gear, step-by-step. Self-taught himself, Richter runs regular workshops showing newbies how to build synths and effects boxes using a circuit board, soldering iron and the most basic of technical knowledge. The results, exemplified by Richter’s own TR 808 Bassdrum, are pretty impressive.

Virgo Four

“We are not trying to be super visual faces, we don’t necessarily want that part…”

Alexander Robotnick

Maurizio Dami is one of those producers that can honestly say “Been there, done that”. The Italian musician has been releasing music since the ’80s under his moniker Alexander Robotnick, and his cult track “Problèmes D’Amour” helped shape the sound of house music and Italo disco.
“(In the past days of music production) you couldn’t change everything later,”
“You needed a clear idea about your work—once it was recorded, it was recorded, no chance to change it.”

James Holden Live in Budapest 2014

Here you can watch him fiddle with his gear setup and crank out “Blackpool Late 80s,” “The Caterpillar’s Intervention,” and “Renata” alongside his percussionist. Let the prog momentum, kraut-y synths, and supple beats carry you away.

CARIBOU live in Vienna (2014)

Watch CARIBOU perform “Your Love Will Set You Free”, “Can’t Do Without You” and “Sun” live in Festival in Vienna (18 October 2014)

METRO AREA live in Vienna (2013)

SoundDesigners Podcast #48 December Mixed By Owen Ni

Podcast 48

Hello everyone,

Another month, another podcast with a guest artist in the lands of SounddDesigners.
Another American artist to turn the focus to the Techno, like many dj’s living informed who do not like to hold a music genre, has the price that has. More important than all this is like what we do, but that does not mean surrender of other musical genres. Simply setting up one set more richer, more complex to articulate, to maintain the high quality parameters. Owen is one of those artists.
Has signed on labels such as Pong Music, instabilities, Hipnotic Room among others.
You can see more in the links below.
For now, just the play, to better understand the sounds of our friend Owen…

This month is December, and it could not be, we would like to wish you a Happy Christmas and good entries in this new year that will enter.

Strong love,
