Hello Decisive music lovers & Everyone around the globe.
Alex has been a resident at the celebrated Freerotation Festival from it’s inception, and is currently a resident DJ at Brighton’s ‘First Floor’ party, playing alongside the likes of Function and XDB. He’s DJed at such diverse events as Wiggle, Split, Fabric, Berghain Saule, Concrete, Labyrinth Festival in Japan, The Big-Beat Boutique, Field Maneuvers Festival and continues to play the best parties. But just as important to his career arc are the hundreds of smaller parties and long-forgotten club nights that rocked hard and kept the lifeblood of the scene pumping. Alex's style behind the turntables defies categorisation. For him techno isn't a dogma so much as a spirit of electronic freedom to adapt and embrace new styles. He is highly rated by DJs and is regarded as a keeper of the flame. So lets get to it.
Note: The Mix Will Be Posted On Soundcloud on Friday Without The Interview.

Hello Decisive music lovers & Everyone around the globe. Tonight Myles Serge is back on the DECISIVE Podcast program for the 3rd time, simply because WE LOVE HIM. Tune in now for a little insight about the life, the music and what it all means to him in his own words.
I am excited and more than happy to welcome back the to the Decisive Podcast Series, our guest today Myles Serge aKa Translate from (Grand Rapids Michigan) an awesome human being, Musician, Dj and Producer, who I had the pleasure to knowing since many years.
This enigmatic dude has been labeled as a low flying techno producer” or even a Reclusive Perfectionist, hard working label head and old school DJ. In this episode of the podcast today we will learn what this all means from the man himself.
Myles experienced a temporary sojourn to the beachside of the the UK?s
As a regular guest at Tresor, with no stranger to bookings at Berlin?s Berghain, Griess Muehle and about blank, to his residency at Steevio?s Freerotation festival in Wales,Myles is a shining example of how one can traverse the EuropeanAmerican transatlantic divide. With a belt of labels under his control (MS), ReForm, Dosed and Space Myles has since moved on to count the likes of NYC?s Thema, The Zenker Brother`s Ilian Tape and Dan Curtin`s Metamorphic imprints as home for his music. Never one to boast, Myles Sergé Clark`s revised approach to the warehouse techno of his recent mixes and DJ sets keeps the quality underground.

Hello Music Freaks, Another podcast here, chasing after your ears to listen into our guest who a major player in the underground music industry The Prince Of Dance Music eLBee BaD. Thats right on the Decisive Podcast series Special. Check out his interview and music mix with your host Roberto Q. Ingram.
More about Elbee,
From childhood to late in teenage years L.B. was playing the drums.
Excellent DJ lessons learned.
The band members were all 3 to 5 years older & when the oldest member was on way to college, his whole attitude changed, as he was taken into what we now call 'the matrix'. Entering university, preparing for adult life & the dream of playing music & making records for a life time dwindled. The dream got sucked away into societies realities. The other 2 band members followed that same basic path.
There was 'The MaD Drummer' losing his band family as each year got closer to being grown up. New York Hip Hop motion was starting up strong. The first modern day raves, block parties, school parties, 2 turntables & a mic parties were replacing bands performing 'everywhere'.
Platinum Enterprise was performing at a well paid wedding. When the bands first set of music was finished, the dj started. The needle dropped on the vinyl & the static was loud enough to 'grab all attention'. Then it came in like the sound of a musical bomb dropping in front of your face…The hits of a snare drum & then horns smoothly flowing & the smoothest LOUDEsT clean & clear sound of madness. Kool & the Gang's live version of Summer Madness. The volume, the Bass & then, toward the end, the synthesised keyboard solo. The moment changed eL's life. The volume & bass coming out the Cerwin Vegas, which was far away from the turntables blew his mind into a musical oblivion & he knew…that's the path.
The young teen got a summer job in which he invested in 2 turntables. That December his mother got him the mixer he was after. (Father did buy the 1st few drum sets). If one could today, imagine never seeing dj's mix. Not having any guides or rules at all. It was all new & nothing was set, & no leaders to follow.
Lots of info on sound systems, making speakers, & use of crossovers etc., were somehow the most important at the time. Probaby due to the fact that sound systems were often thrown together from multiple 'family home systems' that came with lots of watts.
Originate was the key. Tracks (beats) that no one had, was key. New & old music, different genres, nothing mattered & no one cared as long as it was hot & different/unique!
Creating LaRhon Records gave reason to be at record pressing plants. Old factories, dark lighting, with the terrible smell of plastic burning. The friendly feeling in one of them, Apexeton. LB manufactured the 1st two LaRhon releases & there is where he met & befriended the owners, The Ropiak Brothers (City Limits), & the 2 coolest knowledgeable 'helping hand' guys, Silvio Tancredi (Northcott) & Frank Mendez (Nu Groove).
Bad's 2nd batch of 12's came out thru the Apexton connections. Nu Groove & City Limits lead the path. With Apexton LB started his own distribution for some records pressed there. Around the same time 'Gotta Get Some Money' dropped on Nu Groove, it was the first glimpse into a record company as a family, & how it really operated.
Touching both NY's film industry & banging music industry doors LB was laying foundations.
synchronisation of life events become evident.
With Mark E, (Hardwax) inside a reggae record store, ''with my back turned to the door, a voice calls out my 1st name & it's not Mark'' (the only person knowing it). Turn slow & almost into shock seeing a friend from high school. Dexter Porter, time to time singer in Platinum Enterprise, & personal friend of Chaka Khan.
She was the turning point to work in Europe. Offered a position in a new club as resident, & LB became assistant manager-booking agent-dj for the wonderous club called Exit. That gave him opportunity to stop trying to get home. Exit experience also gave way to building club sound systems, booking pop-ular artists (Sister Sledge/Gil Scott Heron/BG The Prince of Rap/Incognito) club management, rave operations, & months of (very little sleep) Friday to Monday basically non-stop. It also birthed the name change, as advised by an angel. Calls herself a witch, saying L.B. Bad (morphed from D.J. Bad) …''for numeric reasons should be more 'strong', than those 5 letters.''
It was in Exit, sunday to Monday morning Berlin hardcore Techno, where resident Dj Tanith dropped Smokebelch two weeks in a row as the last song. Life changer, seventeen 12's records, into the career & the 1st song to generate income, a lovely ambiental song named "New age Of Faith' (bonus track that Frank of Nu Groove did not want)…covered & reproduced by Andrew Weatherall (Sabres of Paradise).
Building up a recording studio for the 3rd time, it took a while to truly find 'his groove'.
Never losing the Mad Drummer flavor & it shows up in complex rhythms again & again.
Music became more & more catorgorized & to help maintain production freedom, Mr. Bad started to add new characters to his own persona.
