Hello guys! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Hi! We are fine! As usually we are sitting in our music studios working on new tracks – this is our daily business.
Please tell us a bit about your latest releases!
We started 2pole last September with a new sound which combines our ideas of techno. We have 2 studios, in 2 different cities of Germany and we have 2 different ways to work on tracks. That’s why we are 2pole. And that’s why our sound is so special. It’s a lot of fun experimenting with new sounds and combining our layouts to new music. After we have sent our first demo EPs to labels, we’ve got huge feedback of well-known DJs and label-A&Rs. Sian, Sasha Carassi and Christian Smith signed our first EPs for Hydrozoa, Phobiq and Tronic Music. This was a huge start for the newcomer project 2pole.
Which release was the one who gave you the most attention so far?
We think all of our three EPs were really successful. But we are at the beginning. Of course our work with Tronic Music was very professional and high level. That’s why we already produced new EPs for Christian Smiths label. We think he likes our music and the way we introduced us to the music scene. We are really looking forward working with Tronic Music again!
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned?
At the moment we just signed a new EP to Tronic Music and we are working on a remix of an album track of Christian Smiths „Input-Output“. More infos about that should be revealed soon!
As you are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience. What is your favourite city or country and why?
At the moment we are touring a lot as our single project monikers and we are going to start touring with 2pole soon. We don’t have favourites, because every city and every party should be the best one!
What are your top 5 tracks that are really working the dance floor in your sets at the moment?
