The Interview:

SWM: Since when are you active as a producer ?
Deejay-JCC: I began producing music at a more professionally niveau in 2007.

SWM: Who or what has you most strongly affected to make music ?
Deejay-JCC: Because of my extraordinary musical taste I always had lots of ideas for melodies or rythms which I tried to recreat in my own tracks. House music can reflex so many emotions with only some simple synths you just have to put them in the right composition. That’s what makes it so special to me!

SWM: Who are the artists with the biggest influence on your music ?
Deejay-JCC: It would take to much time to name them all, because often unknown artists from Myspace, LastFM or MP3.de are affecting me. I’m always searching for new music and sometimes I find tracks which are just amazing and I directly beginn analyzing them.

SWM: How long does it take you to produce a track usually and at what aspect of producing you spent most of your time?
Deejay-JCC: Good question. It takes between seven hours and a whole week. I’m experimenting with different synths and melodies nearly every afternoon and if it sounds good I start to finish it with percussions and fx. This part is the one which takes less time.

SWM: What is the biggest challenge for you when creating a new track ?
Deejay-JCC: I have a very distinct ambition, which may is the reason why I always want to improve my music and give it more quality.

SWM: How difficult is it for you to find one point on which you can let stand a track how it is, without making changes again and again?
Deejay-JCC: This is definitely the most difficult thing of creating a track! Sometimes that’s even driving me crazy.
Not until I’m sure that I did my best to make everything as good as possible I export the track.

SWM: Tell us about the hard/software you are using to create electronic music.
Deejay-JCC: I’m using Ableton Live 8 reWired with Reason 4 and I’ve got a Akai APC 20, BCF 2000 and a midi control keyboard.

SWM: Your currently number one DJ/Live acts?
Deejay-JCC: No live acts this year.

SWM: If you are DJing: do you prefer Vinyl or CD? Do you use DJ software? Are you performing live?
Deejay-JCC: I prefer using CDs, because of the alternations you can have. You don’t need to go into a shop to buy a vinyl and you also don’t have to wait if you buy it online. I do perform live with Ableton and my APC 20.

SWM: What can we expect from you in the near future?
Deejay-JCC: Right now I’m working on my new EP “Grün wird Gelb” which you can download in a few months.
