Hello Decisive Podcast Series Special music lovers,Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the program today.

Its May 8, 2017 and it gives me great pleasure to have here on the Decisive Podcast Series Special, Chicago South Side native Mr. Brian Harden who has releases that date back to the early 80`s on such influential labels like, D3 Elements, Moves n Grooves, Nitelife Collective, DanceMania, Relief and Bangin Traxx.

I had a chance to get an exclusive interview with him to discuss his passion for music which dates back to a young age of listening to his mom`s disco and jazz records, how he grew playing music instinctively and taught himself how to make music without learning an instrument, also how he was able to obtain important influences & technics by master musicians such as Roy Davis Jr., Paul Hardcastle, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Glen Underground.

You will be listening to a mix he drafted for us while we conduct the interview and in a matter of days you can enjoy the music in its entirety with the interview. So I hope you will find some valuable and interesting conversation that keeps Brian relevant to this day. Plus we have a special treat for you. Brian throws down a rap verse which I know you will enjoy.

Peace Your Host Roberto Q. Ingram

Petr Serkin - Decisive Podcast Guest Mix

Hello Decisive Podcast Music Lovers,

Its March 30, 2017, today we take our attention to Moscow, Russia to invite Petr Serkin, dj/producer and house music enthusiast and this dude has released on such labels as Shanti, Freedom Sessions Records, Space Breaks Record to name a few. He is not yet a global player in the world of house but I find him to be decisive in his craft to create an interesting classic adult sound.

I bought his release on Shanti years back and while I was digging in my collection I found his work and decided to see what he is all about. As usual today we have a complete interview about him and makes him tick, I must add that you may need to listen a few times due to his strong Russian accent. But hey you know how we do here at Decisive Podcast because there is no shame in our game. His dj mix is tranquil and relaxed in perfect time for the summer. So please welcome with pleasure my guest Petr Serkin from Moscow.

Full Interview Questions
01. Where were you born and raised?

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia.

02. How long are you djing?

My first set was in 1999 in club Fifth Element in Moscow. Changed some styles of music, but finally came to techno and deep house.

03. Have you any professional music experience, Production, Do you play a musical Instrument?

Played piano in childhood, but not much in the last two years. About professional work - I worked several years making

sample libraries. Its great to hear my loops in other producer's tracks. What Producers have you heard using your Sample Libraries?

04. Do you have any important inspirational figures in the industry that you look up to or motivates you?

Yes of course, i always looking forward to Soulphiction, Jimpster, Session, Victim and Fouk releases.

05. Tell us about Freedom Sessions Records?

I started this small label to release my music and compilations with my friends. It's not easy to manage a label remotely from Russia, when vinyl

plant and distributior are in Germany, but it works. What is the difficult about the job?

06. What do you enjoy most besides music?

Sports and programming. Which Sports and What type of programming?

07. Is Music a life long goal?

Yes i think I will always time making new music, more or less..

08. How is the scene in Moscow and are you playing much there?

You rarely can hear deep house here on very big parties, but in some clubs it is possible. Most important place for me is Propaganda club, very old place. It's always a great experience to play there. I don't play often, so every set is very important for me.

09. What are your favourite clubs or events that have impressed you the most?

- As i mentioned before, it is Propaganda, but there was more - Rodnya, Shanti, Arma, Solyanka.. Besides that - i like open-airs very much, I think

it's my favourite thing.

10. As a dj and producer myself, I find it important to express myself through the music I select, my presentation to the people is with energy
and positive vibrations from me to the dance floor. When your djing, what is important for you that the audience should experience from your sets?

- I love to make transitions in sets, start with old-school deep house and finish with deep techno, for example. Always trying to make set
interesting and play some rare tracks that are not easy to find. I like the old techno approach to djing - when people don't look much on a dj,
just listen to music and dance. Music is more important, no need to be a showman. So i just concentrate on mixing process, but check dance floor too, it's always important to be aware of the feedback from the people.

Please welcome to the show a female from Berlin Sabine Hoffman - Frauengedeck. I asked her to be a part of the podcast series in light of an idea to bring more women to the Decisive Podcast family.

EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Hello Everyone,

It’s December 29th 2016 and you listening to the second episode of The Decisive “Season Greeting” Podcast Series I am your host Roberto Q. Ingram. Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the show.

The last shows for this year includes four talented DJs from different locations around the globe. Today, please welcome to the Decisive Podcast Series Guest Mix Ivan Komlinovic from Zagreb Croatia.

Before we get to his music mix, I want to tell you a little about the man behind the music.

First, let me start by saying that if you want to follow the show you can do so by going to our website at www.inspiration.podomatic.com and iTunes, For ten days you can listen to the compete shows with interviews then the shows posted on soundcloud.com/robertoingram, without any interruptions with the music mix.

Bio:
Choosing amongst numerous highlights from a 20+ years spanning career of Ivan Komlinović and simply listing them here would without a doubt make a compelling reading. However, it seems that the path this Zagreb-born techno DJ, sound engineer, mastering engineer and producer undertook was leading to the big moment he’s living at present time.

Eclectic but techno-focused DJ sets have made him a household name on numerous festivals and parties across the region. Also, more than 15 vinyl releases for prestigious labels under his belt imply that studio is also his natural habitat.

The idea of taking a few pieces from his hardware-based studio and taking them for a ride was present for a while, but only as a concept. Until Moondance Festival 2015, to be precise. Booking for a debut live performance on the main night of the festival and sharing the stage with Octave One and The Analogue Cops was based on no more than a blind trust only a good friend can have.

To cut the long story short, that particular night was all it took to realize that live performance is the most direct way of presenting your music. There’s not a lot in between you and the audience, just a few machines and what exactly can you do with them in the moment.

A successful string of subsequent live dates all over the region only strengthened the fact that Ivan’s as comfortable with his machines as when they’re in the studio, but judging by the interest coming from all sides it looks like they’re gonna be spending a lot more time on the stage.

Tracklist Is Forthcoming.
01. Kassem Mosse Untitled B1
02. Marcellus Pittman You Want Me (Never) (original mix)

My next dates are at NYE. I’ll play two gigs. One in Vienna at Pratersauna and one at MMA Munich.

11. Why were these tracks chosen for Decisive Guest Mix ?
I came from a long exhausting weekend from Berlin. So I had the desire for repose. That’s what definitely influenced my choice. smiley

12. What can club & event providers do better for dance music as a culture in your region?
This one is very hard to say for me. Because my club experience is not very long. But it seems that if the sound experience and the music are high quality in a club the omens are favorable.

Hello Music Enthusiasts,

It's December 8th 2016 and you listening to the first episode of The Decisive “Season Greeting” Podcast Series, I am your host Roberto Q. Ingram, Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the show.

We are now ready to provide you with good music till the end of the December month, also for the Christmas Holiday and music to celebrate the coming of the year 2017. The last shows for this year includes four talented DJs from different locations around the globe.

Today, I decided to invite an inspirational figure from my earlier years of djing in the Los Angeles club scene. Please welcome to the Decisive Podcast Series Special Mr. Terence Toy from Los Angeles (Deep Soul Radio).

Before we get to his music mix, I want to tell you a little about the man behind the music.

First, let me start by saying that if you want to follow the show you can do so by going to our website at www.inspiration.podomatic.com and iTunes. For eight days you can listen to the complete shows with interviews then they will be posted on soundcloud.com/robertoingram, without any interruptions with the music mix.

Without further due, we will now conduct a full Interview live & direct with the man himself Mr. Terence Toy from Los Angeles (Deep Soul Radio).

01. Born and raised? 
Houston, Texas, born. Los Angeles, California, raised.

02. When did you start djing?
Officially, 1978/79 is when I started calling myself a "DJ".

03. Why is music culturaly important to you?
I've been moved by all sorts of music since childhood, as far back as 1968 I can remember enjoying R&B and SOUL music from my uncles and sometimes my mother with Gospel.

04. What Artists is an inspiration to you?
Jazz artists are where I seem to find my biggest inspiration, especially "Straight ahead Jazz" - artist that perform that are still alive such as Steve Turre, Stefon Harris, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Robin Eubanks & Terence Blanchard. Just to name a few.

05. Ive known you for nearly 20 plus years, and you have always had a spicy taste in many styles of black music and the skill to back it up. House was the new music that hit the streets and had not yet filtered throughout Los Angeles in the early days. If I can remember correctly, you, Marques Wyatt, King Britt, Doc Martin and some others were one of the breeders for this sound in the West Cost. How did you discover the house sound and how was it excepted at your gigs?
I was introduced to house music by a friends brother. He was a few years older than us, this brother "David Bryant". He was a gay man that moved from L.A. to N.Y.C. & frequented the "PARADISE GARAGE". He would send me records from the songs he heard there & after numerous packages arriving to me in L.A., I grabbed a whole of the then was called New York Underground Sound. I've been in love with it ever since.

06. Is the Los Angeles underground scene vibrant theses days?
The L.A. scene is vibrant. We are trying to move it out from the "Underground" to the "Foreground". That is my mission before I leave this Earth smileysmiley

07. Can you tell us your favorite clubs or events, you consider to be personally special, past and present?
Wow... past would be "RELEASE" San Francisco & "THE END UP" San Francisco also CATCH ONE & DOES YOUR MAMA KNOW" afterhours L.A. & of course "TOYBOX" L.A. & let's not forget "DEEP". Present would be "UNITY & REVIVAL, both L.A. based clubs and still DEEP!!

08. Are you still producing music, any releases planned for the near future?
Yes, I am still producing music, I currently have a track in the "CATCH ONE DISCO Documentary" entitled "INVICTUS". I also have a remix of SAGE GALLON/Spoken Word artist that is soon to be released on MTV. I am currently working on a cover of the late great DAVID BOWIE'S "Let's Dance" as well a Flamenco version of AMY WINEHOUSE'S "Love is a Losing Game".

09. I know you have a fascination for cooking. Please tell us your favorite dish and why?
Well I have a favorite style or favorite country origin of food and that is Thai food. I love Thai food for some reason. Funny hey... A black man cooking Thai food. I work with a well known Thai chef every Wednesday here in L.A. & sometimes Thursday. His name is Chef Pat. We try to infuse Thai food with Soul food. Get it since I'm Black & he's Thai, we incorporate the two styles together creating a menu with both involved. You gotta wait for our cookbook that we're working on or I can ship you a dish, but I don't think it would be allowed into your new country... TOO powerful. LOL.

10. What can your fans expect to hear in your DJ sets?
I'm a DJs DJ... I take chances wherever I feel I can. I'm completely enveloped in the African & South African House Movement and have been since 1998. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE LATIN RHYTHMS hence the Terencio Toyes moniker that I sometimes use. I play new joints. I try to play as new as I can. I try to infuse JAZZ in my sets any way I can. I love vocals & I love it to be banging if possible.

11. Up Coming Dates?
Next gig is REVIVAL in December. I also do an internet show every Tuesday & Thursday entitled TERENCE TOY TUESDAY/THURSDAY on www.deepsoulradio.com. I was nominated for best show @ The HOUSE MUSIC AWARDS in 2015.

12. Why were these tracks chosen for Decisive #11 ?
I don't do sets anywhere or anytime. I love to feel the vibe, feel the flow & improv as a Jazz musician would do. I pick the first song or sometimes first 2 & then I go for it. When I'm @ a club I do the same thing. I watch the crowd & feed off of their spirit.

13. I saw that you did a few events with the Soul Train Dance member Marco De Santiago? Can you tell us more about your affiliation with the cast?
I was a SOULTRAIN DANCER back in the days. LOL. And I still converse with several dancers including Marco De Santiago. They love my R&B HOUSE style so we feature SOULTRAIN shows occasionally on my internet show "t3" and sometimes they book me for SOULTRAIN gigs.

14. What can club & event providers do better for dance music as a culture in your region?
 
THEY/WE Need to simply try new things....OLD THINGS Renovated & Innovated, Themes and plainly stated "FRESH ie BOOGIE DOWN BRUNCH which I've performed at 4 times now. It's different because it's in the day at Brunch Time and it's all ages. That's what we need is different & creative with House music, across the board. NEW & FRESH & CREATIVE & DIFFERENT!!!!! So enjoy my mix exclusively created for "DECISIVE PODCAST" Peace & Blessings, Tt

Hello everyone its July 21, 2016
I am Roberto Q. Ingram your host and this is the Decisive Podcast Series Special #9 with my Guest MYLES SERGÉ from Grand Rapids MI, USA, label owner of RE(FORM), Space, (MS), and Dosed Recordings

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,
MYLES SERGÉ. Please note that I apologise that we have no tract list this time around.
