featured artists: interview with Local suicide


Q1 Could you tell us something about yourself and your artistic background please.

Our Dj Team consists of Brax Moody and Vamparela. We started producing radio shows in our home towns when we were teenagers. Brax Moody played in hip hop and indie clubs of Bavaria’s exciting Capital, Munich. Vamparela played in indie and electro bars in vibrant Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece. We then moved to the colourful German Capital, Berlin, where we met and in 2010 formed the DJ collaboration Local Suicide. Since then we have been playing in some of the best clubs around Europe. We mainly play minimal, house, electro swing and disco.

Q2 Do you work on your own, what collaborations do you participate in (label, musical partners, etc)?

Since now we have been mainly working on our own, but we are flirting with the idea of collaborating with some other musical partners.

Q3 Something you want to share about your local scene, some insights or recommendations?

We have been living in Berlin for some years now and we see how the local musical orientation is changing. It went from minimal to house and now the latest hype is disco.

Q4 What equipment do you use, what is your work process?

When we dj, we usually use a lap top and the Vestax dj controller, but sometimes we also play with vinyl.

Q5 What are your next gigs and where can we preview your works online?

We had a big tour in Europe in April, so now we are taking a small break. The next gig is on the 21st May in one of Cologne’s hypes venues, Stadtgarten and on June 17th at M&D, an open air festival near Brussels.

Q6 Any plans for the future you want to announce here…?

We are planning on starting producing music on a more professional level, making more remixes and on traveling to even more far away places to play.

Q7 How about some namedropping, do you want to recommend some artists that inspire you?

Daniel Steinberg, Bowski, Alexander Robotnick, Andy Kohlmann, Richie Hawtin, Bottin and so many others.
