    [By The Wavs Exclusive] 8 Questions With Eastblock Bitches


    OzClubbers

    Eastblock Bitches

    With their tune “Don’t Speak” quite rightly drawing in huge online kudos, German act Eastblock Bitches take some time away from the studio to fill us in on their 8 answers to our 8 questions…

    1) Who are three of your all-time favourite artists, past or present?

    Wow that’s difficult, but I would say Daft Punk, Coldplay and Vitalic.

    2) Is there a particular tune that you have never got sick of?

    Stardust – “Music Sounds Better With You”

    3) Describe your perfect day…

    Wake up in my own bed with my dog. Lunch with my family. Later, a great and productive studio session with some gaming breaks on my PS4. Early evening dinner with a cinema visit with friends, and a great festival show in the night. As you can see, there is no chance of a perfect day.

    4) What would people who know you well say about you in three words?

    He never call backs…. shit, four words.

    5) Ideal studio layout…

    We love our own studios. We are fans of old vintage synths, like the Dave Smith Synth Prophet 5 and we have also a Jupiter 8 and some other great synths. So for a great studio you don’t only need a PC –  in my opinion you need some history in your room to get really inspired. I’m not a big fan of all these modern but lifeless and clean studios.

    6) What is your most valued material possession?

    Our synths and of course Markus’ big game collection. And of course our health.

    7) Is there something musically you would like to do more of next year?

    We want to release more tunes in the future. When you work with big labels you have always strict schedule plans. So we released only 3 songs in 2017. We really want to release more in 2018, maybe a full album or so.

    8) Where do you want to be in 10 years?

    We want to be where we already are. We are living the dream and we hope that we can visit more countries to play our shows in the future. That would be great,  but for the moment we are really happy. We can hardly wait for what will happen in the future.

      It took a while, but Headhunterz finally has 'a new place where the magic happens'. His studio is actually finished and he is proud to show his social media. He even calls it a dream that has become reality. And we can imagine that, because mister Heady is pretty much planning in the brand new Music From Within Studio.
      Right from the moment Headhunterz returned to hardstyle, the Veenendaler threw the door of his old studio behind him. There had to be a new one, in which he could raise Hard With Style to a higher level besides his own productions. This place is now finally realized after a months-long renovation. Headhunterz explained a bit of the veil here, but one of the companies that actually built the studio shows much more. According to the website of one of the builders, the company has "installed an extension in January that allows podcast recordings with multiple participants". View the footage from Headhunterz 'studio here, here, here and here.
      The new Headhunterz studio is finally ready
      Now that the new musical breeding ground is finished, we can secretly look forward to new enjoyment for Headhunterz's ear. In addition to the new mini-album, which will be released this year, he said earlier that he wants to bring his Hard With Style podcast to a 2.0 version. The studio would offer a solution. The last broadcast of HWS was thus even suspended to 2 February. Headhunterz apologized for this, but said that the delay for a good cause is: "It will all make sense very soon."

      Factory 93 has once again completely transformed a stereotypical Los Angeles venue into an underground oasis for music lovers in the heart of Hollywood. Saturday the quickly growing Insomniac brand specifically for House and Techno music aficionados took over the Hollywood Palladium, one of the oldest and most well known performances venues in Los Angeles. This venue, which opened in 1940, has featured artists like: the Tommy Dorsey band featuring Frank Sinatra, who performed the night the venue first opened its doors; iconic rock artists including The Who and Led Zeppelin; more recent pop artists like Justin Timberlake; and, this past weekend it played host to house music legends Solomun and his +1 Hot Since 82. Only a huge brand like Insomniac could pull an event like this off while also completely changing a well known concert venue into a living and breathing nightclub atmosphere where the social environment is as important as the music.
      From its forays at EDC to the collaboration with Exchange LA, a nightclub housed in the former stock market downtown, to the warehouse renovation in order to give Factory 93 a home in Los Angeles: the Insomniac brand has always understood the concept of the social requirements of electronic music. We go out to see certain artists and to dance, that is a givien; however, we go out to see and experience each other too. Initially I was slightly disappointed such a huge event as a Solomun+1 show would be happening at the Palladium, no matter how iconic it is. This venue is a concert venue and organized for fans to watch a show. Yes, dance music artists have played there before, but the set up does not encourage the interactive dancing and social atmosphere which a nightclub inherently has.
      However, upon walking in I immediately realized that for a Factory 93 event one will never get simply what they expect. The production team had completely reoriented the space and transformed the giant venue into a oblong nightclub. They built their own stage on the far left side rather than use the stage to the front of the entrance. It was fully equipped with lasers and led panels completed by a disco ball covering the crowd in prismatic glitter. They put in extra bars along where the stage normally sits which enhanced the nightclub atmosphere and reduced wait times to grab a drink. The entire venue was a bar and the entire bar was the dance floor.
      Hot Since 82 came on and enticed the crowd into a dance. However, the atmosphere created allowed for the chatting one can expect at the beginning of the night out in any city. As his set continued the white noise began to dissipate as his tone became a little deeper leading in perfectly to Solomun himself. The sets merged together seamlessly. I had not seen Solomun in action before and it was truly mesmerizing. The Factory 93 team had perfectly designed the visuals to enhance his music without being too distracting. The lasers hit at just the right moments and certain drops brought a flood of light allowing the smiles from across the room to be shared by all. Fans dancers waved brought a touch of a breeze to us all as we sweat together and danced the night away. They ended with a b2b set which tapered off every so slightly from the depth Solomun had brought us into and allowed us to make our way out and back into reality again.
      The only odd thing about the whole setup was that the VIP area was directly above the stage. People who had paid more money for a table or VIP access had no view of the DJs or stage itself. They did, however, have access to an exclusive bar and bathroom without a line. Also, there was no reason they couldn’t go downstairs and merge with the rest of the crowd. I can see how some people may have been put off; but, the venue was more of a nightclub than a concert venue. I think it may have forced more interaction than would have been the case on a normal night in Hollywood. Hollywood is a city where people love to feel exclusive. The show brought out an interesting mix of the Hollywood norm of bandage dresses and heels alongside bros wearing Factory 93 snapbacks and girls in glitter and combat boots. It was an amalgamation on Hollywood and the dance music community and Factory 93 created the perfect space for mixing without overemphasizing exclusivity. The change put everyone on more equal footing and the rearrangement made the dance floor large enough to accommodate a large crown without overcrowding.
      Solomun+1 was a huge success and I think perfectly highlights what Insomniac is seeking to do with the Factory 93 brand: bring together underground music lovers in safe spaces to share and experience music and culture. They never settle to simply use a venue the way it is but transform it to perfectly fit the artists and fans they bring into the space. It felt like I was in a new nightclub event though the Palladium has been around since the Golden Age of Hollywood. It shows Factory 93’s understanding of underground culture and I am excited for more collaborations with artists and venues to come in 2018.
