Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
This is a showcase of my new and unreleased tracks
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
It’s hard to pick a favourite because all the tracks in the mix are my own productions except for the one by Dennis Siemion that’s forthcoming on my label Ballroom Black. I do like the old school tribal tech vibe of “In The Cage”, as it’s a little different from my usual style of techno, so I guess that might be a good one for me to pick… it’s soon getting released on ICONYC.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
The track from my buddy Dennis Siemion is the only one not by me, so I think that would definitely have to be the secret sauce in this DJ set. The track is forthcoming on my label Ballroom Black, and I really like the remix by Rob Acid, so I couldn’t resist playing it.
Tell us about your next EP?
That will be my Magma EP that’s planned for February, and I put an edited version of a track from that release in this mix. I made the track while playing around with some vocals by Rosetta that are taken from a classic house track. It’s a track I remember from my youth and have a lot of good memories of hearing it at parties, so it’s nice to have made use of it in my own music.
What have you got coming up?
Recently I put out my Purple Kaiser album “Entangled” which features a more melodic and progressive style, I’ve had a couple of people compare it to Artbat, but I don’t really know much about those guys, so hopefully that’s a good thing lol. I made the album during lockdown without listening to the music of others, so the tracks are what came naturally to me and I’m really proud of how the album turned out.
I also wrote two albums of film trailer music inspired by some of my favourite movies, which obviously is not stuff to dance to, but gave me an opportunity to explore my love of film and soundtrack music.
But as for Kaiser Souzai, I have many tracks finished and I’m in the process of writing more, so expect a lot of fresh music throughout 2021.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Try to stay positive in these hard times, don’t waste your time by waiting for better times to get creative as this extra time spent at home is perfect for making music or learning new skills.
I really hope you enjoy the techno podcast I have made for NUDE and if you would like to learn more about my deeper, more melodic alias Purple Kaiser, then please check out my new album “Entangled”.
