Do you feel that you are restriceted when making music so that you make music to suit the Minus ideals?

Do you have any input into what is released? And would you agree that in recent years the releases have been lacking the quality of old?

Why do artists(who are involved with other labels), when releasing on Minus have a new alias?

Do you think that Minus has lost focus on what matters most? The music, and what is your opinion on the number of anonymous labels that have been appearing recently?

If you had one word to describe Techno?

Not bad.. There are some decent one's!


Wackiest party/airport moment!?

How much unreleased trax he has? (Bet he has nearly as much as aphex)

Btw... Are there some acts/artists you did ask before about that Q&A and they declined or did you ever wanted to make /w houle! Just curious

What is his favourite minus artist and why?

How does he spend the days? does he spend a lot of time in studio?

How he start a track..and idea comes or he just start producing and see what comes?

Does he prefer to play live or to be at the studio making music?

Does he pay attention to sales, day releases ..etc in the market or he doesnt give a sh!t?

What was/is in his opinion, the key for Minus success ?

Why did you start producing?

What's your influence for the music that you make?

What kind of music do you listen to, besides techno?

What was the first piece of gear you purchased, do you still use it?

While working on a track, do you just jam and record, or do you have some kind of workflow?

Choose: Playing for 50.000 people that would swallow anything you'll would give them, or playing for 100 people that would absolutely murder you for the mistakes you (could) make during a set?

This could be pretty interesting if people put in a little effort.
Will try and think over the weekend for some questions.

I know ... I am also thinking about it but can't come with anything decent

awesome, awesome topic!!

here's my questions:

1) did you listen to the demo I gave you in milan three months ago???? :). and, if yes: what's your comment (given that the track kinda sounded like s**t)?

2) when are you gonna release your track "salamandarine"?

3) how on earth do you map your ableton? (believe me: I stared at his mac several times but didn't get it :oops:)

4) wanna buy my juno 106? (serious - it's in perfect condition, sounds amazing, looks museum-like)

5) did you attend any music institution or did you teach yourself how to produce techno music? (very important question)

6) do your track sound the same in your studio as to when they are released or there's something more going on after you render them? like mastering, post-production, additional mixing? (very important question too)

thank you very much.

all my best.

· If you never been into music, what other thing would you have done as a job?

· when you leaved the day job to live from music only?

· If you never get to know richie like you do now, do you think you had made such impact in Techno?

· What do you feel infront of so many people hearing your set?

Sorry for my english correct the questions if they are baddly writen!

Cheers
