With tunes out on Toolroom, Defected, Suara, Solä, Superfett, and Hottrax, joining the HC roster adds fuel to this fire duo. Animal features one original track from Raumakustik and a b-side Jamie Jones re-edit, which is currently sitting at #4 on Beatport’s Top 10 Tech House chart.
Keep your ears on Raumakustik…
Interview with Raumakustik:
How did you first get introduced to dance music? What is the most challenging part of becoming a full-time producer and touring artist?
Seb: I was 12, and the friends of my sister listened to the 90s dancefloor stuff like ”culture beat” and ”snap” in their cars with huge woofer speakers. I was excited about this bass sounds. My first contact with beats.
As full-time producer, it is a continuous challenge to deliver new good tracks with an own signature sound.
Volker: Well – since I was a young boy I loved music. I learned a little bit of guitar and violin. Then I discovered electronic music – in the end of the 80s, and beginning of 90s. There was the first electronic sounds in dance and pop music on the radio. And I loved every track I heard with this sound, synths or samples. In this time one of my great wishes was: I´d like to produce and arrange my own music. Together with Seb we start as Live-Act, our working as DJs began later – but intensive.
What has been the most exciting turning point of your career so far?
2014, we did a genre swap from Electro House to Tech House, our first production “Raider“ was signed by Jamie Jones’ label Hot Trax! We landed our first Beatport #1. What a great feeling for us. A Game Changer in our career.
Where is your home base? If someone were visiting there for the first time, what clubs and/or parties and/or restaurants would they want to check out?
We live in Radeberg, a little town near Dresden in Germany. You know maybe the famous Beer Radeberger Pilsner?
Dresden is a fantastic city with really nice hotspots and many historic buildings and great restaurants. One of the most beautiful cities in Germany, I think.
We have an excellent club culture here. Mostly Techno Clubs.
What advice would you give to an aspiring producer?
Do what you love, not what others want! Be creative and have a lot of patience and always try to beat you!
What’s on the horizon for you in 2019?
There is a lot of new stuff in the pipeline. A Collab with Andrew Meller on Kittball Records, a new ep with Pete Kaltenburg on Elrow Music – and last but not least a release on Danny Howard´s Label Nothing Else Matters and many more …
And this year is our premiere in Ibiza. We will play in August with the Toolroom guys at Club Eden.
Animal is out now on Hot Creations! FanLink
Do you have any hobbies outside of music?
Seb: I’m a big fan of old BMW Cars late 70s/80s. There is always something to do in the old cars. And I have 2 Kids, 2 Cats, 1 Dog and my lovely Wife… enough things outside the music : )
Volker: I love to touring with my bike – there are many little villages and mountains near Radeberg. And I love to read books – especially crimes.
What are some touristy things you do while playing in a foreign city?
Of course, visit the city, and spend time with friends. We love to get to know new cities or places …
We love the Spider Stage at the Miami Music Conference.
Maybe next year..
