Hello everyone its July 21, 2016
Today we will be listening to a complete interview with my guest then later in the week I will post Myles music mix with the the interview and like most of the Decisive series we will be speaking about a lot of different topics, music, production, club culture, his personal views, collaborations and of course we will discuss the ups and downs with managing his own independent record label.
Myles is known for his humble personality with many house & techno releases on labels like: Ferox, Ilian Tape,Thema , Metamorphic, Caduceus Records, Knotweed Records, Sweatshop, Night Drive Music,
When I met him 4 years ago in Whales after hearing his dj sets my first impression was that he has a warm raw and demanding approach to his sound, which excites me because there was no compromise to what he feels from with in. Since then we have become close friends through this important channel of communication portal called Music.
So please welcome to the Decisive Podcast Series Special #9 with full interview,
July 07, 2016 10:27 AM PDT
Hello Everyone and welcome to the underground, You are listening to the Decisive Podcast Series Special with my Guest Dj Spider from Jersey City and record label owner of Plan B Recordings & Sublevel Sounds.
We will be speaking about a lot of different topics, music, production, club culture, his personal views, collaborations in the studio with other like minded producers and musicians and of course we will discuss the ups and downs with owning your own record label.
For me Dj Spider is a prime example of an artist that thrives on defying the law of gravity by expressing exactly what matters to him most. When I met him 3 years ago at Freerotation Festival in Wales http://www.freerotation.com, my first impression was that he is a genuine and passionate individual deeply routed in the world of music. Till this day I am impressed with his crafty focus on the darker side of sound in combination with soul, shedding light on his politic views also whats going on in our city streets. I find this to be and important art form to be able to vindicate his message to the world.
So please welcome to the Decisive Podcast Series Special #8 with full interview,

Rennie Foster Decisive Podcats Series Special # 5
01. Where were you born and raised?
02. Have you had strong musical influences in your upbringing ?
When I was very young my parents owned and lead an all girls, drum corps. A big marching band, called the "Canadian Maple Leafs" (or Leaves?). My earliest memories are of travelling around the USA going to parades and competitions. It was the 70s, they did a lot of disco, Star Wars theme, Stayin' Alive, stuff like that. I especially loved the glockenspiel. However my musical awakening happened in 1983 and breakdancing fever. My mom, single by that time, enrolled me in breakdance lessons at a community centre and my instructor was a very hip DJ, Rod Mack, who gave me some mix
03. Can you recall any particular moment which sparked your interest to be in the music business?
I think it's interesting that even from my earliest experiments with music, making pause button mixes in the early 80s, and recording weird jams with our family electric organ, I always made an artist name, like a made up band, and made the cassettes like a package, with a cover. I was in a rap group in the early 90s, called "Sound Advice", and we put out some tapes, just in our city, and later, into the 90s, I put out a series of 5 tapes, just in my city, called "Underground Confusion" that was tons of crazy music. Hip Hop, complete with my rapping, house music, weird techno, anything I was
04. Do you have another profession?
Yup, full time single dad. I have had sole custody of my beautiful daughters, Dahlia and Mariko, since they were very little. They are now 15 and super cool people. Lights of my life and the inspiration for a lot of my music. Music and my family are what I do.
05. Do you have any professional music training?
Well, I have no music training, but I have definitely been schooled by some serious pros.
06. Are there any DJ's, musicians or bands that inspire you?
Sure, tons. Too many to name. I get inspired and influenced, musically, from all kinds of things. I am inspired a lot from people I know in the music game, at all levels. There are artists, like Underground Resistance, or Rakim, or The Cure, that have been a present and consistent inspiration for long amounts of time, and there are newer artists, like The Fallen and many other new techno artists, or some of the new underground rappers from Atlanta that are blowing my mind, or all sorts of things I have my ears on. Some of the artists I am really inspired by right now are teenagers, like Spooky Black who is featured in the podcast mix. I am only into the raw creators though, not the hordes of genre followers some of these young scenes create. For example, I love Yung Lean and Sad Boys/Gravity Boys, but I don't like "Cloud Rap" as
07. You’re a resident in Vancouver British Columbia. If I am not mistaken you lived in Japan. How did this decision to live in Japan come about?
Well I had been to Japan a few times previously, starting with an excursion working at a hot springs hotel in the mountains in 1993. I later went there as a DJ, and always vibes with Japanese culture for some reason, as some people do. My children, born in Canada, are half-Japanese and I thought at one point their mother and I might be able to work it out, so I went there. Even when it proved fruitless in that regard, I decided to stay in Tokyo with my kids and make a go of the club scene there and bring my label at the time "Futago Traxx" to the game. We stayed there nearly 9 years. Full of amazing ups and some pretty rough downs, but we made it out alive. I love Tokyo with all my heart and get really homesick sometimes.
08. Your music productions includes a diverse approach. Can you tell why this is so important to you?
I am not into rules and boxes. I didn't get into art to follow rules and regulations, in fact I ran to art to escape that. I am into subcultural movements, not "genres". Hip Hop is who I am, Punk is how I think, House is my religion and Techno is a language I speak somewhat fluently and understand like it was my native language, just ask any of my homies from Detroit. I see connections between subculture, not just differences. I love the culture of the underground, I am into everything
09. How do win over a crowd when you DJ?
By being myself 100% and showing them it is OK to be yourself. I watch body language, I try to feel what the room feels like and give them something that challenges them in the right way, or let's them know that I am not "above" them, just part of what we all came together to do.
10. What are you favourite production tools?
Well, I have used Reason regularly since version 1, so I guess you could say I like it. I also use a lot of other tools though, both software and hardware, that are always changing. Right now I really love the Roland AIRA series, and I have the first
11.What are your plans musically for 2015?
I will release a track with Soiree at some point for sure, also an EP with aDepth Audio and a couple of other things I can't say yet. I have quite a bit of remixes coming out as well for artists like Justin Berkovi, J Garrett, DJ Spiltmilk, also a remix of Alex Agore coming out alongside a Terrence Parker remix on Santonio Echols' "D" label, that's really exciting to me. Also, I have a 7" coming out with rapper Moka Only on Vancouver's MSLX label, and a release on East Van Digital with rapper Birdapres.

Ivan Komlinovic Decisive Podcast Series Special #4
Full Interview for the website
Born and raised?
Zagreb, Croatia. Raised in mid class suburbia.
When did you start djing?
late 1993. first mix tapes were out in 1994, and 2 years later I got my first chance to do a warm up set before DJ Frajman at legendary club Aquarius.
It is extremely difficult to answer that question. After 20 years of DJing and searching for my own sound I had at least 20 artists that had strong impact to my musical and technical evolution. In general I always had special place for non predictable artists with "balls" to experiment and attitude. My roll models were few local talents, but probably Derrick May was a DJ who's set in 1996 made me re think about what I am doing, and open few extra channels in my head. After hearing Derrick, I never played same way.
As a DJ, I probably learned how to think about music from underground icons such as laurent garnier, Dj Bone, Jeff Mills, Derrick May, but as a producer and writer, my influences go beyond boundaries of electronic music. Music producers I admire can be anyone who's approach to writing, sound designing and producing I find original. I am just crazy about stripped down music without any intention to be liked, but still addictive, and makes you want to hear some more..
Are you producing and Planned releases?
I am producing music constantly. No plans, releases are for me just a good moment between artists work and label. I have 1 upcoming release for local Decoded label, and some finished tracks I would prefer to have released on vinyl labels, for obvious reason; It is the only way I could also play my music...You see, I have pretty unique way of thinking about my own music production; I just play and have great time with my instruments, every second available. I really have no big expectations from my music production, but good things just happen when right publishers feel and detect elements of art and science in my work.
it changes all the time. If I really need to pick only one all time favorite label, it would probably be 430 West, Metroplex or Underground Resistance, but nowadays I prefer small independent labels I never heard of before. If release is "vinyl only", it is small part of exclusivity most of DJs do not have access to. I love all Chronicle releases, most of 50 Weapons releases, Token, Acid Worx, Vakum, M Plant, MFD, Burek, Dekmantel, TTT, R-Zone....
What do you think about the Zagreb Underground Club Scene?
Zagreb is extremely active at the moment. Lots of independent underground crews doing there best to keep vibe alive and to educate new generations. There are 3-4 underground clubs in Zagreb, and few really interesting crews that keep spirit Alive. A living icon for underground music in Zagreb is Jan Kincl Zero. Most talented DJ I have ever heard, passionate music digger and host of the most important radio show ever in Croatia. He is a good spirit of underground music world in Zagreb, and his energy keeps things alive.
What can the Croatian club & event providers do better for underground dance music as a culture in the region?
First off they need to do lots of research to get an objective picture of how many regular party goers are out there. Then, they need to educate, themselves and there target crowd about the music presenting. Today, lots of active promotors organizations don't have a clue about music and culture they are only in it for the money. As a result we have empty or just bad partys...Lucky for us, most of the active promotors really know what they are doing and are prepared to learn and adapt...
Favorite club you have played?
Dr Slump - Spain, Masters- Zagreb, Metropolis - Split, K4 - Ljubljana.. Looks like I really prefer small places.
What can your fans expect to hear in your Dj sets?
My fans can always expect real underground vibe. Sometimes very unpredictable. I love deep, repetitive hypnotic moments in clubs, so I guess it is what I tend to deliver to crowd.
What is your primary source to play music (vinyl,digital,USB, cd)?
Vinyl. I had 3 years of digital DJing period, but I just did not enjoyed..
Decisive Special #4 Track list and why you chose the tracks?
One thing is for sure; I pick random records from the case. Thing is: I buy vinyls and at the buying stage, I am extremely selective. When I want to represent my vision of underground techno music, I take 15 minutes to search thru my records. Put some new stuff, some old that fits the whole story, and go crazy. Prepared sets are not my cup of tea. Same in clubs and demo mixes.
Whole idea of DJ tapes is to represent DJs ability to develop a flow by improvising. I strongly believe in the art of DJs. Mixing technique is very important to me, so when computer does that for you, your mix has lost some of its personality. A DJs abilities to mix a record selection and "dance floor radar" defines a unique sound of every one of us. All elements are connected. If you lost just one factor from the equation, you have lost your unique sound.
My name is Roberto Q. Ingram from Cincinnati Ohio to Huntington Beach California to Los Angeles and now living in Munich Germany.
Let me introduce myself to you as a music lover since I was a kid, 26 years as dj, and 10 years as producer/remixer. Everything I do in life is done with the up most passion to excel minus the posing, boasting or bragging to the world through the social media network hype. I prefer to build my relationships from the ground up with you personally.
"Music is that portal that binds us and expands all boundaries"
I started producing my own podcast for Inspiration Network since mid 2009, in titled "Decisive Podcast Series", The series of dj mixes are conceived to give you an idea of how different styles of quality electronic music can open your mind and hopefully effect your emotions differently at any given time.

I hope you will listen and embrace the various artists and styles of music I feel to be significant and bound to no genra. It is important that I represent a brand that focus on passionate Dj`s, Musicians & Artists that take risk and bold enough to experiment with introducing only quality music.
I hope that you will listen, Interact & support the show. Give your comments Like, Follow and spread the word.
