Ovog vikenda u Novi Sad na Know Thyself stiže talentovani tech house producent i DJ – Federico Ambrosi koji je svoj uspeh postao primećen kada je izdao za Repopulate Mars etiketu koju drži Lee Foss. Pred sam nastup, popričali smo malo sa Federicom o njegovim uticajima, omiljenoj muzici i šta možemo da očekujemo od njega kad bude dolazio 14. septembra u Novi Sad.

1. Zdravo Federico, nadamo se da si dobro kao i inače. Na tebe je uticao techno klub, dok si ti trenutno u tech house žanru kombinujući razne elemente. Reci nam kako si se profilisao i napravio takvu tranziciju?

1. Ćao momci! Drago će mi biti da odgovorim na vaša pitanja i da vam kažem nešto više o meni. Postao sam blizak ovoj muzici kada sam čuo kako pušta Paolo Martini u klubu, u mom grad pre više godina! On mi je oktrio ovo vrstu muzike, drugačiju od techno zvuka. Puštao je prve trake sa Hot Creationsa (etikete Jamie Jones-a). i to je bila prva muzika koja je uticala na mene.

Od početka samo više voleo “veselu” i groovy muziku nego mračni techno. Svaki put kada sam radio na kompjuteru, mislio sam o nečemu što bi nateralo ljude da plešu, da se smeju i da uživaju! Takođe moji odlasci na Ibizu su dosta uticali na moj stil muzike.

2. Izdavao si na mnogim velikim etiketama kao što je Sola, Relief, Repopulate Mars, Stereo Productions i drugim – koja je bila tvoja pesma koja se probila i zainteresovala velike etikete za tvoju muziku?

2. Mene je progurao “Sound Off” EP na moćnoj Repopulate Mars etiketi koju drži Lee Foss. Vrlo sam zahvalan Lee-ju što je prvi verovao u mene i što mi je pružio takvu priliku!

3. Nastupaćeš po prvi put u Srbiji 14. septembra. Šta si čuo do sad o Srbiji i kako se priremaš za Know Thyself žurku?

3. Mislim da Srbija ima sjajnu publiku i jedva čekamo da testiram moj nov EP koji izlazi za Sola etiketu sledećeg meseca!

4. Tvojih trenutno top 3 pesama su…?

wAFF – The Jakk [Moon Harbour]
Dan Vya & Leon (Italy) – They Don’t Look (Original Mix) [Snatch! Records]
Luca Lozano , Mr. Ho – F.U.B.U (Original Mix) [Klasse Wrecks]

5. Koju classic pesmu bi voleo da remixuješ?

Inner City – Good Life

6. Šta misliš da je esencijalno da bi uspela noć u klubu?

Esencijalna stvar su ljudi koji uživaju u sebi i muzici. Zato pokušavam na najbolji način da te ljude rasplešem!

7. Za kraj reci nam šta možemo od tebe da očekujemo u mesecima i godinama koje dolaze?

Uvek se trudim da radim dobre stvari. Imam par pesama za Pirupinu etiketu “Nonstop” i Solardov “Sola”. Što se tiče događaja, uskoro idem u Južnu Ameriku na turneju, gde ću svirati u više gradova. Prvo mesto je Argentina i nadam se da će publika takođe biti sjajna!

Federico Ambrosi nastupa 14. septembra na Know Thyself žurci u Novom Sadu.

ENGLISH VERSION

1. Hello Federico, we hope you are good and smooth as usual. Your influence was a techno club, but you are currently into tech-house that combines various elements. Tell us how did you profile your style and made that transition?

1. Hi guys! Happy to answer your questions and tell you a bit more about me!
I got close to this kind of music when I started to listen to Paolo Martini here in a club in my town a lot of years ago!

He made me discover this kind of music, different from usual techno. He played the first tracks of Hot Creations (Jamie Jones’ label) and that was for sure my first music influence! From the beginning, I preferred a more ‘happy’ and groovy music then dark techno. Every time I worked with my computer I thought of something that could make people dance, smile and enjoy! Without any doubts, my trips to Ibiza have played a big part in my style of music!

2. You’ve released on various big labels like Sola, Relief, Repopulate Mars, Stereo Productions, etc. – what was the breakthrough track that made you interested for such big labels?

2. My breakthrough release was my Ep ‘Sound Off’ on the mighty Lee Foss’ label Repopulate Mars! I’m so thankful to Lee for being the first to believe in me and for giving me this chance!

3. You will be playing for the first time in Serbia on the 14th of September, what did you hear about Serbia and what are you preparing for Know Thyself party?

3. I think in Serbia there is a great crowd and i can’t wait to try out my new upcoming Ep on Sola out next month!

4. Your current top 3 tracks are…?

wAFF – The Jakk [Moon Harbour]
Dan Vya & Leon (Italy) – They Don’t Look (Original Mix) [Snatch! Records]
Luca Lozano , Mr. Ho – F.U.B.U (Original Mix) [Klasse Wrecks]

5. Which classic track would you love to remix?

5. Inner City – Good Life

6. What do you think it’s essential for a successful night at the club?

6. The essential thing for sure is that people enjoy themselves and dance with my music. So I try to do my best to make people move!

7. For the end tell us what can we expect from you in the upcoming months and years?

7 I always hope to do good things! I have some upcoming tracks on Pirupa’s label Nonstop and Solardo’s Sola! And talking about events, I’m going soon to South America for a tour, I’m playing in different cities, first I will be in Argentina and I bet the crowd will be amazing!
