[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's track comes from the winner of our Native Instruments remix competition we did of Rebūke's "The Pipe". We had hundreds of entries of producers who took a crack at it, and Germany's Zillhelm came through with the top remix!
-How long have you been creating music?
I started playing music when I was 6 years old. First melodica, then accordion in a music school and
finally I decided to become a Rockstar, so I learned e-guitar. Producing electronic music was more
like an accident. When I was 20, I wanted to record my guitar licks and I bought an audio interface
with an Ableton Live Lite version. My licks were shitty, but I got more and more interested in
arranging a track.
-What do you use to make your tracks?
I use Ableton Live 10. I was convinced right away. Most of the tracks I make are all done with Ableton
stock. Awesome piece of software!
-How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?
I think it was at a pre-party and I was the driver. A friend of mine played “LEZGO” right before we
wanted to leave. I remember how stunned I was by the video and the perfect sync with the track.
After that, I just followed this kind of music and Dirtybird. Tracks like “Ruff Stuff” and “OKAY” by Shiba
San just aggravated my addiction.
-Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?
Ardalan, Justin Martin, Shiba San
-If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?
The Random Guy - Nothing Special But Not Too Bad
-What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
My good friend Johannes used to play guitar in a cover band and one day he had to replace the
singer at a gig on an old scrap yard. Honestly, he can ́t sing but he was performing his favorite song
Billy Talent Red Flag like it was written by him...it was crazy!
-If you could time travel, where and when would you go?
1989 - Berlin ;)
-What species of bird best describes you and why?
Magpie....stealing sounds and samples everywhere.
-What does Dirtybird mean to you?
What Apple stands for in smartphones, Dirtybird stands for in Tech House. (not only because of the
catchy logo :P )
