Tell us a bit about your Mahogany Mix
I used mainly tracks that I had on my ipod before, I listen to them every day, when I’m outside, walking around, on the subway and so on. But there are some new tracks, too. Most of the tracks were released over this year so it’s probably some kind of “favourites of 2011″ podcast for me, but yeah, it’s just a small part of the great tracks from this year. It’s probably not the average dj-mix but worth a listen for sure!
What’s your method of approach when starting a new remix?
When I’m doing a remix, it’s actually always the same way, I hear a song, on a blog for example and I know in the first moment I want to work with this track. I take the original song and start building loops that sound good to me. I love to change sounds like pitching or slowing them down. When I find something I think I can work with, I start to build the beats and put everything together in the end. that’s it.
What’s next for Hannes Fischer?
Future plans? I think I will just do, what I do at the moment. Discovering good music and their creators, meeting new people, enjoying life. This year I felt like in a spiral, rushing to the center, it’s kind of crazy but I love how everything is going faster and faster everyday. In the next month I will concentrate on producing and djing only, I have the time now and I want to use it, it’s totally worth it.
Also before we end this post, Hannes dropped his Lana Del Ray remix but it was taken down from SoundCloud unfortunately. Luckily we’ve got a copy and easily the best Video Games remix out there in our opinion so wrap your ears around this!
