Watch KiNK Turning Out A Track On The Fly

Wow, wow, wow. I just came across this highly inspiring live video by Bulgarian producer KiNK, creating a track pretty much on the fly with a simple but super effective set up.
Deeper Shades of House fans know how I feel about KiNK's music and watching this makes my hands sweaty and my heart beat faster. It is another example that as a producer you "just" need to know what tools you're working with, study them inside and out, and you can create amazing tunes.

Check out the video right below.

From the YouTube description:

When I was a kid, I used to create loops on records by sticking tape on the grooves. Recently I found this one and one of the loops inspired me for a live jam. I plugged the turntable into MFB Synth II (the blue box) so I can filter the vinyl. I made a beat with MFB 522 (the red box) and I beatmatched the record to the beats by hand, as the pitch control of this turntable is very limited. In order to get richer sound, I plugged the instruments through a portable Mackie mixer with FMR - RNLA compressor on the inserts and Electro-Harmonix Memory Man with Hazari on the Aux.

Interview With DJ Deep From Deeply Rooted House Records

DJ Deep from Deeply Rooted House Records in Paris has just released the brand new mix compilation "KERN Volume 1" on Berlin based Tresor Records and Juno Plus takes the opportunity to interview the french house pioneer about House Music back then and now.
DJ Deep
“When people were going out when I was 20 years old, they were going out to hear this new sound. They wanted to know everything about it,” he says, when I ask how he’s seen thing change over the last 20 years. “Today people are maybe not 100 per cent dedicated to it, or some are but the rest are just there to have a good time. And that’s a little bit harder for a guy like me, a weirdo who’s obsessed with this. It’s a criticism of myself, that sometimes I need to be more basic.”  DJ Deep interviewed by Tom Banham (2012)
