1. If you had to pick one track which solidified your love for electronic music early on what would it be?
Audiostorm: It is very difficult question 🙂 There is so many tracks which are affected on my future love for electronic music, one of them is The Prodigy – Out of Space for sure.
2. What was your first and last DJ gig?
Audiostorm: First was in 2005 i think, on beach party. In last few years i focused on production work, and in this moment i am ready for some different way of presenting in live acts, with ableton live and Akai APC controller 😉
3. What was the first and last record you purchased?
Audiostorm: One of first albums I bought, which are marked the later evolution of electronic music is certainly Future Sound of London – The Accelerator and The Prodigy – Experience. Last? I don’t remember in this moment, perhaps Progression Sessions with LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad.
4. What would you say is the highlight of your career thus far?
Audiostorm: Hmm, I am not yet in some position that can give you a good answer, we will see in upcoming months 🙂
5. Tell us something about yourself that might surprise people?
Audiostorm: I am one of the captain of Cosa Nostra, haha :)) I am kidding, I am a cook, good specialist of international cuisine, including Italian, Mexican, Lebanon, among others 🙂
6. Who are some of the best undiscovered talents in your eyes?
Audiostorm: There is so many talented people out there, you just cannot all of them bring this up. One really talented guy and insufficiently known is Phrakture. His production really rocks !
7. Which producers consistently inspire you?
Audiostorm: Underworld, Trentemoller, Autechre, Gui Borato, Astrix, Kevin Yost, Amon Tobin, Way Out West, Martin Roth, Guy J, Silinder, Marcelo Vasami …
8 What artist or track would you love to remix? and who would you love to be remixed by?
Audiostorm: Uff, there is a lot of tracks! Let ‘s go with genial Circulation – Topaz, than old school techno hymn – Brian Zentz – D-Clash, than Omid 16B – Escape, Shmuel Flesh – Chilling Moments, Nick Warren – Buenos Aires… I would like to be remixed definitely by Martin Roth !
9. Record labels are a dime a dozen these days and the majority of people feel most of them are mediocre music factories. Which ones if any standout for you?
Audiostorm: My experience with labels and their managers are really great, there is so good guys out there, and guys who really doing a good work !But, also think that some managers simply have double standards, some good tracks do not take it from reason that producers is not enough ˝ famous ˝. On the other hand, published some tracks that would realistically be rejected without thinking in case that is less known artist .I think that’s bad for the advancement of both sides. Really like what Jason [Proton],Milos Miladinovic [BCo], Jacco [LuPS], Jaksa [A Must Have],Stiven Rivic [Mistique], Dominique [Sound/3rd Avenue],Nicholas Van Orton [BCSA], Pavel [Electronic Tree] and many others do for their labels and progress of this music in total!
10. What would you say is the best mix compilation of all time?
Audiostorm: Sasha Involver (1) without any doubt. Fuc*in’ Masterpiece.
