Interview with Fairmont

24-10-2014 | 07.28

An on-going stereotype about Canadians is that they are extremely friendly and nice people. We feel that we haven't met quite enough Canadians to fully confirm this imagery, but if we had to go by the likeness of Jake Fairley aka Fairmont, we wouldn't think twice about making the trip over the big pond.

Interview with Luke Hess

13-10-2014 | 10.17

Luke Hess might not be one of the most iconic artists to come out of the city of Detroit, but he's definitely one of the most honest and pure. As a DJ/producer, he started coming up in the mid-2000's and has released two full-length albums up until today, including the critically acclaimed Keep On in 2012. When you scratch the surface, you'll come to know some interesting things about Luke that's unlike most of the DJ's you'll read about.

About Leon Vynehall + ADE give-away

12-10-2014 | 15.51

In an electronic music world today where new music is mass-produced daily, structures and progressions begin to become overused and overplayed. New and interesting ideas for music can be really hard to find when you’re flicking through the thousands of tracks released daily on Youtube and Soundcloud in the so-called underground electronic dance scene. It’s in times like these where producer-DJs like Leon Vynehall become so refreshing, not because they defy all the conventions of typical modern dance music production, but because there is an emphasis on that simple musical quality that so often appears to be missing.

Constructing Bridges for Music

Constructing Bridges for Music

On the 12th of October Olaf Boswijk is undertaking a mammoth task. He will be cycling from the Resident Advisor headquarters in London to the heart of Amsterdam ahead of ADE. I asked him what he’s done to prepare. “I've been trying to ride my bike as much as possible. So besides the daily commute and cycle activity you can expect from your average 'Amsterdammer', I've been doing training rides all around the city. Going to Zandvoort, Alkmaar, Hoorn, Noordwijk etc and back and trying to get as much miles in as possible.“ The cause for all this additional exercise I am told is an organization called Bridges for Music.

Interview with Hessle Audio

11-10-2014 | 10.24

We’ve endeavoured numerous attempts in the past to interview the Hessle Audio crew here at Trouw. Questions have been formulated, dates have been set, emails have been sent, but all previous efforts have failed conclusively to entice the Hessle Audio heads into a conversation. It was only ahead of their upcoming ADE performance that an email labelled Trouw blog piece with Hessle Audio & more, finally presented us with the opportunity to conduct a short email interview with Ben UFO, Pangaea and Pearson Sound.

Interview with Don Williams

10-10-2014 | 10.37

If you’re up for his style, Don Williams is a dj who'll never disappoint. His name is as American as his sets, with a heap of influences from Chicago and Detroit. After the interview, Don Williams said: “The first time I met Convextion in person, I was expecting a dark skinned guy from Detroit. But he’s actually from Texas and looks nothing like that.” You could say the same about Thomas (Don Williams’ real name), who grew up in a small town near Berlin.

Interview with Margot

03-10-2014 | 14.31

It wasn’t a very good idea to do an interview over Skype with Margot. The Italian duo has quite a hard time answering me. My questions were frequently answered with "we don’t understand", but after trying two or three times, we manage to get the wanted result. And even though I spoke with Pepe on a night in Ekko earlier this year, apparently I forgot how difficult it was for him. "You should have seen us 6 years ago. It’s already much better now", they say. I have to give them a lot of credits for keeping up for over half an hour.

Burrata stays on the Trouw menu!

Burrata stays on the Trouw menu!

Seize the opportunity if you are a fan of burrata, the Italian cheese that is probably the planet’s best. Whereas anywhere else it is considered to be a spring or summer dish, Trouw will be serving burrata until the very last day of its existence! Not many people realize that this miracle of a cheese can be eaten all year round. Time to catch up with Marco Sotgiu, the guy who provides Trouw with the best Italian products. He is giving us a short lecture on why burrata is such a special cheese indeed.

About Matthew Herbert

27-09-2014 | 12.28

There are few producers today that can match the innovation and ingenuity that Matthew Herbert has displayed over the past twenty years through his various aliases. Herbert has an exceptional talent for spotting a musical quality in sounds that would otherwise pass us by in every day life, and his ability to transform these sounds into engaging pieces is second to none.

After weeks of planning and a series of delays, Job Jobse’s voice finally cuts through the lo-fi Skype ringtone as his image blurs into view. “Good morning, Job and thank you for accommodating our early appointment.”

Interview with Three

18-09-2014 | 12.14

"Who I think has got the best record collection? DJ Three for sure. Also Danny Howells and Derrick Carter. If I saw their collection I would be floored! I admire them so much anyway, but they really have a record collection."

It's not only Cassy that talks with high praise about DJ Three (otherwise known as just Three). Quite the contrary, because many have named him as one of the true innovators in the US scene today.

Wolfgang Voigt about Sampling

17-09-2014 | 16.45

Electronic music producer and visual artist Wolfgang Voigt will join us for the second edition of New Music for Found Footage where he will perform an original score for Gustav Deutsch’s “Film Ist.”.  I asked Voigt a few questions about the upcoming performance and his ideas about sampling.

Interview with Ryan Elliott

11-09-2014 | 12.11

Ever since we heard the news that Ryan Elliott would produce the Panorama Bar 06 mix, we were anxious to hear it in its entirety. The Berlin artist, originally from Detroit, would be the first in line to release this famous mix online for free and contains tracks by heavy-hitters like Head High, Roman Flügel, Marcel Dettmann, Mr. G, Tuff City Kids, Terrence Dixon, and Genius of Time. Makam is also present on the mix and invited the man himself to his Club Night Weekender this weekend, which gave us a perfect reason to have a chat with the Berghain/Panorama Bar resident.

GUP Gallery in Trouw

06-09-2014 | 13.13

GUP Magazine has been exhibiting the work of young Dutch photographers in our toilets since 2012. They have always been solo exhibitions that were shown for several months. The last pictures to be put up in October will be shown until the end of Trouw. This time we want to create a group exhibition of talented photographers that want to pay Trouw and our building one last tribute.

Interview with Petar Dundov

05-09-2014 | 11.31

We've all come to know Petar Dundov as one of the most enigmatic techno live sets of the last decade. Born in Zagreb, his career in dance music stretches back the best part of 20 years, but it’s only in the new millennium that he’s been using his own name for his productions. His 2013 album Sailing Off The Grid got raving reviews and enforced his unique style of making techno music to expand people's horizons. Petar returns to Trouw this Saturday to play at Something Happening Somewhere with Etapp Kyle and Nuno dos Santos. A lot has happened since we've last seen him, so we were thrilled to have a chat with him in the middle of his busy schedule.
