How long did it take you to make that most sublime track... Sommersettler ?
Just before I did it I had decided to give up making music and get a proper job, the plan being to sell all my equipment and spend the money on a used Porsche 911. As a goodbye to music I decided to make one last tune, purely for fun, and that was what became Somersettler.
I had been listening to dub for years but I'd never thought to make any, having been obsessed with breaking into the world of psy-trance. Don't ask me why.
Anyway, I spent weeks just tinkering around with sounds and samples and drums and stuff and then, one day, I realised I'd made a tune. I played it to Simon P who included it on the first Twisted Records 'Backroom Beats' compilation and it all went from there.
I listened to it this morning for the first time in ages and I really enjoyed it. It represents a highly significant change in my musical fortunes and taught me a lot in a short time.
How do you usually translate sub bass for stock computer speakers/other devices that generally cant pick up sub bass? I can almost feel the sub bass in "Splitting An Atom" on my stocks computer speakers or phone speakers....Do you recall the basics of the technique you used on SAA?Ott responded on 06/13/2016 Next question
Hi from France !
No special question because there are so many, and I prefer reading your answers instead.
I first knew you with Hallucinogen in dub, then Ott, and I even discovered your previous works as Eco or Hikikomori etc by reading this.
It feels intimate to read you, not as those boring "see my jetset life postered on instabook or facegram" people we all know. Huge thanks for beeing real !
You are really impressive, your music talks to my mind with a language not known by my brain. And I would like to thank you for your works.
Keep on bringing us pleasure lifting us away...
