Da Funk Interview@Power Hit Radio

Interview for Nevesomost Radio, Russia (Archive, 2007)
Please tell me a bit about yourself and your career as a musician and producer.
Hi there, i’m Da Funk from Switzerland. I’m a musician and producer and have worked for labels such as Plastic City, Forensic Records, Justified Cause, Pesto and many others. I‘m also the owner and founder of Acryl Music, the label.

Your songs have great melodies. where do you get your inspiration from?
Almost anything what’s around me that i really like. For example travelling: i was in Venezia this past weekend. A very beautiful city by the way and it’s really impressive how much inspiration i can reward from such a trip. But as said, there are so many things i get my inspirations from. It’s the sum of it all i guess.

Can you describe the process of making music?
There isn’t one particular process. Sometimes i do start with drums and on another session you’ll find me playin’ with chords and synth’s first. It depends on what i’m up to at the moment.

Which style of music do you prefer to listen to?
I really do listen to all kinds of music as long as it has some sort of deepness to it. People tend to say i’m a passionate hater of chart oriented music…maybe they’re right.

As I know you've got your label "Acryl Music", tell me something about it.
I've founded Acryl Music basically cause i was tired of sending around demos and wasn’t able to release what i really wanted to. Also a big aspect was that i always wanted to achieve the complete freedom of expression and it’s extremely difficult to find a label who gives you that.

Do you perform in clubs?
Not that much, im super busy with all the studio works currently and therefore pretty happy to have off weekends.

Tell me about your best gig.
There isn’t a best one. Every gig is an experience, no matter if it was good or bad.
Some of them you remember better, because the place went nuts, but i wouldn’t think about one best gig.

What about your future plans?
That’s an easy one: i want to write music till the rest of my life basically
