Interview with Marcus

Marcus from Minilogue did an interview with Higher Frequency. You can find the Japanese version kindly translated by Terumi here at Higher Frequency.

Here is the English original:


Higher Frequency: You just arrived in Japan on May as Minilogue, you are going to play by yourself this time. what kind of sound do you play recently?

Marcus: Yes we played in Japan not so long time ago. Played on the GroundBeat festival as Son Kite and Minilogue... great festival!! This time it's just me coming and doing a dj set. When I dj i try not to get into any specific "sounds", I like playing the music that I think fit into the vibe.

Higher Frequency: Over the years ,you have came on stage with some project name like Sonkite, Minilogue.
I think there is no such wonderful party as Labyrinth. How is your impression to this party? Is there something different from other party?

Marcus: I haven't tryed parties on other planets so I have to say... It's my favourite party on this planet!!! I'm sure there are other great parties on other planets... can't wait to go to those places ;)

You should not listen to music you should experience it... what better way to experience the music is there if you have a 3 day festival up in the japanese mountains toghether with friendly people and a ENORMOUS soundsystem and a fantastic line-up... it will for sure be a psychedelic experience... can't get any better than this :)

Higher Frequency: I remember your DJ set was the last of our journey in Labyrinth 2006 and it was very amazing...I was moved when you played 'Kirsty Hawkshaw - Fine Day (James Holden Mix)' as an encore.
Do you have any special memory you've ever played in the past?

Marcus: I must say that the 2006 dj gig on the Labyrinth was one of those moments that will be hard to forget... one of my best memories in my dj career!!! It will be hard to beat that gig but you should not compare feelings/parties because every place and party is unique in it's own way... Everything have something to give! Same goes with people actually... never compare yourself with other people... it will just make you insecure!

Higher Frequency: I heard you will quit DJ after this party. Is it true? Can I ask what has happened on your mind if you ‘re alright?

Marcus: Yes, you heard right... I will stop the dj thing for a while... don't know if I ever will start again but you should never say never ;)
I feel that it's hard for me to focus on two things... dj'ng and producing. I feel that the producing part makes me happier and the meaning of life is to get happy so it was time to make a choice...

Higher Frequency: Will you continue to play live as Minilogue ? Could you tell what you want to express through your music life to the future?

Marcus: Of course! Minilogue and Son Kite is my life!! I'm trying to live my life in the NOW and not in the future so I can't tell you anything about the future...

Higher Frequency: Are you plannning to release an album with Minilogue or IMPS?

Marcus: Ok... I can talk a little bit about the future ;) We're working on a new Minilogue album at the moment but when it's going to be released... I don't know... I just know that it's going to be great... and when I say great I don't mean that the music is great I mean that it's great that I don't know when it's going to be released :) Like I said before, I'm trying to live in the NOW!

Higher Frequency: Do you have any special interest besides music?

Marcus: Life! What a wonderful illusion!!!

Higher Frequency: All of The Labyrinth freak loves you !!
Please send some messages to your fan!!

Marcus: All happiness that exist in this world comes from wishing other happiness. All suffering in this world comes from wishing yourself happiness!!!
Think about it and start living it and you shall find something special :)
With love from Marcus

"Midnight Lounge" セカンドステージへのご招待



BAR LOUNGE がセカンドステージに早変わり。






Nightsounds at the Midnight Lounge

For the star-gazers and the drinkers, the contemplatives and the midnight groovers, we have some good news. After the main stage shuts down late on Sunday and Monday night, we're going to open a second small stage right next to the bar that will go all night.

The sound will range from dub and deep house to spacey ambient and far-out electronica. We're lining up artists who have massive collections of trippy music that they usually can't play peaktime in a club. These two nights will be for real music lovers who crave something a little different.

It will be low-slung, it'll be deep, and it will just what the doctor ordered for the insomniacs who can't sleep at night. And the sound, of course, will be Funktion-One.

We'll announce the artists soon...
