Q&A: FERDINAND WEBER
WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE YOU RIGHT NOW?
I’m in Munich right now to work on new music.
IF YOU DESCRIBE THE SINGLE IN 3 WORDS WHAT WOULD IT BE?
House - sun - club
IF YOU WEREN'T MAKING MUSIC WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
I can´t imagine what I would do without making music - probably I would run a little Bar or Cafe.
HOW IS YOUR STUDIO CURRENTLY SET UP? ARE YOU MOSTLY IN THE BOX OR DO YOU USE ANY OUTBOARD GEAR? IS THERE ANY EQUIPMENT WHICH IS REALLY ESSENTIAL TO WHAT YOU DO?
I´m working mostly in the box, but I´m searching for hardware synths right now. Maybe I´m starting with a Juno 106 and an Elektron drum machine.My essential software tools are Jupiter 8 (Arturia), Diva & Fab Filter Pro C & Q.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I’m going to a lot of concerts and exhibitions trying to get inspiration or I’m producing in nature with my headphones - that worked pretty well in the past.
WHAT'S THE NEXT BIG THING?
My next releases - I´m working a lot in the studio right now to get everything finished asap.
WHICH SONG DO YOU WISH YOU WROTE?
Faithless - Insomnia :)
WHAT'S THE SECRET TO A GREAT MIX?
Less is more.
WHAT IS YOUR SCHEDULE LOOKING LIKE THIS SUMMER
I’m focusing on my music the next months with a lot of writing sessions in different cities like London, Berlin & Barcelona.
ANY ADVICE FOR YOUNG ASPIRING PRODUCERS?
From a music perspective - Don´t think too much, just do your thing and try to develop your own style. From a marketing perspective - Send your music to blogs, playlist curators and try to reach as many people as possible. Labels will find you automatically.
