Following in the footsteps of Outplay’s offshoot 24 Carrot’s number one iteration published last year, Fouk & Junktion are back with the second volume in their carotenoid-rich series – soberly titled, ’24 Carrot #2′. Known for their juicy blends of low-slung house and tribal funk, the Dutch duo take a shot at the news threads’ continuous doom-and gloom with four delectably carefree cuts that’ll boost your lockdown arses to proper upward feelings.
We were blessed with the chance to peer inside the work-spaces of these two musical masterminds, and check out what their favorite pieces of gear are!
“As we both work from home, here are our home studios”
This one has been with us since almost the beginning. We’ve used this fat mono synth on almost all tracks we made!
Daniel has had this synth since 2001 and we’ve “rediscovered” the versatility of the JP8000 since a few years now. It’s known as the essential classic trance synth, but it packs a surprisingly funky punch!
We’ve used it for basslines, leads, pads, you name it!
Hans bought the Juno refurbished from analogia.pl (great service!) in 2015 and it has been with us ever since. It has a very recognizable sound, and it’s no wonder that it’s still used by so many artists nowadays.
We love using tape saturation and delays and these are perfect to use on synths, drums, whatever takes our fancy. The Deco has a hidden studio mode, which is really good in getting the “right” amount of tape saturation for us.
The hub, the heart, the work horse of both our studios. We both have an Apollo and the stability of this audio interface combined with the quality of the plugins make this piece essential in our workflow. It’s expensive but totally worth the purchase!
Turn it up & enjoy!
