Statement _ Interview With 3RD
How is the running of the label going to be organised? Seb is doing the mastering I take it? Where does everyone else fit in?
ad.lib: Seb is taking care of the mastering of course! I do the artwork and Patrick is our ghost producer if we’re honest!
Patrick: haha.. I’m too slow to be a ghost producer. We have to slow down our releases to a vinyl every decade if you really want me to do that..
S-Tek: It works nicely. We don’t have strict rules. As we mentioned before, we’ll all try to work on the label as much as we can and push it in the right direction. The coordination is done on-the-fly via facebook and dropbox. We are completely virtual in that sense.
What about your own solo releases?
ad.lib: We all agree that it’s not our goal to spread music on an immense array of labels. We’ll work with a selected list of labels like Affin or Gynoid. There’s so many artists around that it’s nice to keep it simple for all the music enthusiasts out there. We want to build profiles as artists so people can have kind of a picture about what ad.lib is or where to look for the music. That’s why we think it’s the right step to start a vinyl label in 2013. But at the same time we always keep our eyes open. It’s good to see that there’s still people sharing our enthusiasm for quality electronic underground music and it’s even better to meet them at all kind of occasions.
Ranting about the downside of the internet before I have to add the positive aspect here I guess. It’s good that a few groups of like minded people can team up without living next door. It’s always a pleasure to discuss or even collaborate with people who believe in the same things. 3RD would not exist without the internet.. so the internet cannot be that bad!
Haha.. Yeah, it’s nice to see the internet used for good occasionally!!
Well, 3RD 01 should be available in stores as this interview is going out, so best of luck with it all Gentlemen!
