This is D U B (!) arranged for you by XEED a great artist and dj from Switzerland. Read below the interview where he talks about his work flow, obstacles and dreams… Thank you Fabian for my new fav Lucid Podcast.
1. Lucidflow: How does a creative day look/feel like for you?
A creative day starts already in the night. It’s very important to me, that i get enough sleep and i don’t have to get up really early. I don’t like mornings :)
Also it’s important to have an extensive breakfast to gain energy. Overall i like it when i get stuff done like doing the dishes, wash my clothes, cleaning the house and so on. Only when i feel comfortable i feel good enough to be creative and set my mind free.
Also short breaks during the day are important. During the daily work i often don’t have much time for myself and that way i can recover my body and soul.
Also i need music nearly everywhere i am. Again and again i hear interesting mixes and tracks which might inspire me.
2. Lucidflow: How do you hinder yourself / what keeps you from being creative?
The internet is sometimes a big obstacle. Sometime i forget the time and at the end of the day i ask myself: “what creative or useful things have i done today?” and feel bad afterwards.
Nicotine is relaxing indeed, but i realized, it makes me really lazy sometimes. That’s one good reason to quit :)
Sometimes i’m also a bit depressive and days are going by without doing something useful.
3. Lucidflow: how do you support yourself in being creative?
A good thing is, that i can be really stubborn. That means, when i set something (feasible) in my mind, then i will do it, no matter what. That way it’s easy to follow deadlines and handle stuff i have to do.
Also the thought to make other people productive and creative with my own work pushes me.
Additional, the things that i mentioned in the first answer are very useful.
4. Lucidflow: How did you come across Lucidflow?
As a Dub Techno fanatic and vinyl lover for many years, i bought Klartraum’s “Secret Moon Wax Edition” on Lucidflow back in 2013. I love the concept of “Kazantrip (Original)” – it’s something different than the usual Dub Techno stuff i buy and it works wonderful on partys.
In my hometown zurich i don’t often go to clubs, because it’s mostly the same music nearly everywhere and that gets boring.
I really like it unconventional, different, creative and innovative.
In another ambitious project called Comfortnoise Ploy we exactly do that – Something different, innovative, unconventional and creative.
5. Lucidflow: Tell us one of your greatest wishes:
One huge wish of mine is releasing an own vinyl record. But that wish comes true this year!
With my buddy Rjega i created a three tracks EP to be released on the label Dimbideep in spring.
6. Lucidflow: If you had an infinite amount of time and money what would you do?:
Hmm, lets make a list:
Make music with my favourite artists
Build a big club with different floors
Buy an island
Build a race track
Buy a few race cars i ever wanted
Yeah, i think this would be the most important things i’d do with that.
7. Who is your personal hero and why?
Everyone who supports me, without you guys this passion wouldn’t be what it is.
8. Lucidflow: Anything else you’d like to spread to the Lucid world?
Thank you for inviting me to this podcast!
I’d love to hear feedback and constructive critics about it!
