Insides: Jung An Tagen

Due to Covid-19 we are in lockdown, with clubs being closed. As we still want to keep up with musicians and DJs around, and feel that digital streams are irretrievably lacking the social energy of live music events and are not able to compensate for it, we are looking for consolation in words. In the end music is a social practice. Insides features voices from Vienna’s electronic music scene, looking to exchange ideas, find mutual inspiration and exit strategies, entering personal realms.

“(f)rom Vermummungsverbot to Maskenpflicht”

Hello, how are you?

50% bored, 25% drunk, 25% “busy”

Where are you right now?


Which sounds surround you?

My wife pounding her keyboard and my neighbour blasting Turbofolk.

Have you been productive so far? What are you working on?

We launched the label ETAT.XYZ which was great! We got a lot of feedback.

Right now I am working together with Cam Deas on a concept album.

What inspires you right now?

That we went from Vermummungsverbot to Maskenpficht.

Reading material you can recommend?

Burroughs “The Wild Boys”

To listen?

Eric FryeRM FrancisMarcin Pietruszewski & Prince Buster

To watch?

I really liked “Too Old To Die Young”. Everybody I talked to, thought it was too boring, but I think it’s Refn’s best work.

What’s your opinion on live-streams?

It’s an ok exercise against boredom but that’s about it.

What are you missing most? What are you afraid of?

Playing shows and that we have no vaccination in autumn, because then all starts again from zero and I have to become a delivery boy..

What will change you think?

The people who claim that the market will regulate everything will certainly have a harder time making that argument.

What is the gig or occasion you were most looking for, that was cancelled in this period?

I was really looking forward to doing a month-long tour. I played only on-offs the last couple of years and I was really looking forward again to that kind of adventure.
