EPISODE DESCRIPTION

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.

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.

03. What Artists is an inspiration to you?
All kinds of different artists are an inspiration. Artists from Music, Literature, Film or any other art. It’s hard to pick single ones. I am influenced by almost every part of my environment.

04. I met you first at your resident event Vicious Circle night at Bob Beaman in Munich.
Now that thats over, are you counting on another residency to come about soon? There are some new projects coming up in Munich. I hope I will be part of one or another….

05. Is the Vienna underground scene, vibrant theses days?
I think so, though I am not part of it… Since I moved to Vienna I haven’t been going out so much. So I am missing a lot I guess. But there are spaces where people seem to create something. It’s a struggle everywhere and always.

06. Can you tell us your favorite clubs or events, you consider to be personally special, past and present?
Year after Year I personally look forward to Monticule Festival and Her Damit Festival. Both crews are good friends of mine and it’s a matter of the heart to play there.

08. I understand you have your own Label Aura Karma, How is it running?
Aura.Karma.Records is still there. We just took a break in the last months. We will revive it definitely. But I will also start a new label in 2017.

09. What can your fans expect to hear in your Dj sets?
My style keeps changing all the time. But at the moment I’m into old school breakbeat electro. I love to mix it with house.

10. Up Coming Dates?
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.

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
