Paul David @ Barletta

B: What was the first note you ever heard?

PD: It takes a lot of energy and determination to be in the music industry. What keeps you inspired?

PD: The guitar feedback at the beginning of "Ticket to Ride" by The Beatles. There are colonies of people in the earth, and there are also colonies of sects of people who gather and, with a medicine drum, praise and try to mimic and adopt the lifestyle of different genres of music. Which one is real? They are both real. Dance music is global and ancient and current… It's a unifying force and everyone is feelin' it… We're just adding more sub bass to the medicine drum. Is there one organic or synthetic instrument that defines electronic music for you? The Moog Modular. All synthetic sounds you have ever heard can be created on this synth. Bob Moog was a fucking genius. Music can be measured in audial length, but how can one figure out how wide a song is. Is it infinite? A good song is a circle… It goes round and round… When is your favourite time to create music, night or day? Why? I'm ready for it any hour. Each different time of the day brings its own moods and perspectives and I want to experience how that influences music creation… I don't wear a watch.

B: The cost of seeing a shrink if I ever decided to stop being creative. What's your prediction of where dance music will be in 20 years? It will be outlawed as a narcotic. Dance music will be the new cocaine. Can you reveal one of your production tricks you have discovered recently? Zero compression on the master track. I mean, uh, learning how to mix properly? What is it about an artist that makes you want to sign them to Burner Records? If the track gives me shivers, it's time to break out the pen and paper. Do you ever wonder what people on other planets think of music here on Earth? Yeah they're probably like chowin' down on space ribs and being all like "pffft... amateurs, those assholes need sound to communicate -- Hey Xenofer you wanna go hack into Obama's twitter?"
