Q&A with Wild Culture
“Its Done when its Done. I think you can work your whole life on one single track, trying to make it perfect.” Wild Culture takes on the Q&A.
WHY DANCE MUSIC?
It’s universal unique and something that catches you. It can make you happy, sad or any state of consciousness. And because everyone likes to dance.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO MAKE MUSIC?
People. Moments. Emotions, Stories from our daily life. Music itself. Everything. It’s a good way to work up emotions and feelings. We try to give people as we call it a “movie in their head”. People should close their eyes, feel the vibe, the message we want to transfer and everytime they hear a track again they should find new hidden elements.
FESTIVALS OR NIGHTCLUBS?
There are a lot of cool festivals and clubs to visit and play at. To favorite only a few would be unfair. All the promoters want to give the people the chance to forget their problems and let them have the best time as possible.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF THE STUDIO?
We both are really busy workers. Florian as a business man, event manager and student. Felix is studying biomedical engineering, works as software developer and is always on something new.
WHAT’S NEXT ON THE HORIZON?
We always try to catch the next level and work on our productions quality, work with new singers, musicians and bands. We want to show the people that “the wild culture music” is like a wild lifestyle, which keeps you happy and come in touch with the wilderness.
WHAT WAS THE BEST GIG YOU’VE EVER PLAYED?
Really hard to say! There were a lot of best gigs.
WHAT’S THE WORST THING ABOUT MAKING MUSIC?
Waiting for the render to finish or if the after-work beer is finished and it’s too late to buy a new one.
DO YOU PREFER DIGITAL OR VINYL WHEN DJING?
Both. But you have a lot less to cary if you are playing digital.
WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOIRTE PRODUCERS? WHY?
There are a lot of great and talented producers and engineers around the world. We respect all of these guys who sit hours and hours in the studio an work hard to make great beats and vibes that people can dance and fall in love with.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE BLOGS OR SITES?
In Germany we really like the site Trndmusik, they always find new artists and give them a chance to make them more popular as a platform to get more range to people who love house/electronic music.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PLUGINS?
We really like some of the WAVES plugins, but if you sum it up, it not depens on the plugin to get the good sound, it depens on your understandment on how they work and how they affect your waves in detail. At the moment we work on our own plugins.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN A TRACK IS FINISHED?
Its Done when its Done. I think you can work your whole life on one single track, trying to make it perfect. Sometimes it takes 5 hours to create a whole concept, sometimes it takes a week. After this process it comes to the mixdown and the mastering stuff.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SOFTWARE AND/OR STUDIO GEAR?
When it comes to creativity in the production process, ableton is our number one. Also, the potential of a good DSP should not be underestimated. If you use only your PC/MAC for the whole signal processig, your possibilities are extremely limited. The UAD cards and some outboard gear solve the problem.
IF YOU WEREN’T PRODUCING MUSIC WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU DO?
In our free time we try to catch a lot of inspiration from the nature. We live in the deep forest of Austria as many people say and enjoying it to find and record special voices from nature. It’s important to use our free time which is really rare, in doing other things than listing and hearing deep house, because only the good ideas come when you have time to take a break from everyday life and enjoying life. We also love doing sports, eat good and exiting food and having a great time with the Kittball family.
WHAT KIND OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO UP AND COMING PRODUCERS?
1. We think the most important thing is: “Never give up on something”- Always try to get better and better. When a track doesn’t work the way you want, start with a new one.
2. Have fun producing music and try to get your own unique style.
