At Some Moment _ Interview With Derlich

Derlich _ 1

Does the music creation process differ much from the machines of your Live performances? What is your studio like?

It’s more a workspace then a studio to be honest. Very minimalistic. My main tool is Live9 Suite. I’m not looking to invest in hardware as I’m still able to create everything I have in mind with Live. Strangely enough I’m not a huge fan of plugins. I’m really fond of my comfort zone and don’t see the point in leaving it anytime soon. If I would buy one piece of gear it probably would be the Sherman filterbank.

I was blown away when I heard ‘Triangulation’ on your last EP for Singularity. I thought I could hear a little bit of Grain Delay in there but I could be wrong. Man.. That track is so tough.

Actually I was busy on a track for the EP for some days and it didn’t work out like I wanted. I didn’t find the right sounds, textures, backgrounds.. I got fed up with it and decided to keep it simple and fresh. Coming up with ‘Triangulation’ really didn’t take long!

Will you tell us a little about the mix that you’ve done for subsekt? Which artists or tracks particularly stand out for you?

It’s a slowly built up mix with my favourite tracks of the moment. It was great to keep in mind that I was making a mix for subsekt, so thank you for letting me be a part of the series. There are a lot of artists that stand out for me but if I have to choose some: Robert Henke, Byetone, Oake, Coil, Pansonic, Orphx, Vatican Shadow.

Excellent! Looking forward to that Derrick..

We’re nearly at the end now. Have you got any releases coming up before this album makes an appearance?

For now, I just want to focus on my album for Singularity and my Unit 81 project which I’m working on with Roebin de Freitas. Currently we’re working on our first EP. Hopefully we will see some music hitting the streets coming fall or early ’15. A remix will come out on Singularity at the end of this month. Both projects really go deep and fulfil me enough to keep me going the rest of the year.


Music production and history are my biggest passions in life. Though people often say that Techno is faceless and should be about the music blah, blah, blah.. I believe in the need to document the people and stories behind it. Techno is a very small world in reality and I think it needs a proper resource. I hope that everyone who is interested in Techno finds this blog accessible in terms of the way that it is written. I personally prefer to hear the artists voice as loud as the music and never enjoy synopsised and pasteurised versions of old conversation; the sort that's peppered with the occasional quote here and there.
