We are very happy that Martin Alix had the time and willingness to conduct this interview with us. Read about his equipment, favourite artists and future plans below.
Hi there, how are you and what are you up to today?
Fine thanks you ! Working hard my projects, I’m trying to actually finish several tracks.
To those not familiar with you, how would you describe your sound?
I love working with disco sample. I love use different stuff like disco riff or groovy vocals who allow to bring a special vibe to my work. My sound get close to between house and disco.
What are the 5 albums and artists that have influenced you the most?
All the French Touch influenced me.
Albums: Morrison Hotel ( The doors ) / Pink Floyd – The Dark Side Of The Moon
What other artists do you really like at the moment and why?
Folamour, Purple Disco Machine and Detroit Swindle. I love their work!
And i love french producers like Gaba, LOG, Tomaas All, and many others… These guys are so talented and also really nice.
What are some of the key pieces of gear you use to write your tracks in the studio? Or do you prefer to use software and plug ins?
I prefer to use software and plugins, more easy and transportable.
Has your arsenal of equipment changed much since you first started?
Yes! When I started doing music, I only had a laptop, earphones and a few plugins. 7 years later, I worked with great monitors and now I have a lot of plugins and other stuff that improves my work.
Do you enjoy playing to an audience or working in the studio?
If we gave you the budget to put a line-up together for a mini fest, who would you book and where would you play?
A French line up for sure! Daft Punk B2B Justice!
If you weren’t a musician what would you be?
Do you have any information regarding upcoming releases, projects, DJ mixes or collaborations in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
In 2018 I have few releases to come! About one month ago, I released my first track “On Air” with Spira Music.
My track “Boulogne” will be released in April 6th on Krome Boulevard Music.
Furthermore, I have another track that will be released on Nervous Records. It is an EP with my friend Tomaas All, and a colloboration with LOG!
There are lots of projects coming up for 2018.
