Happy Birthday Miike Teknoist !
Nekrolog1k & The Teknoist offer’s you a special combo Podcast/Interview !
1. Who are your biggest music influences?
Miike: right now… Dolphin, Amon Tobin, Scheme Boy, the dj Producer, Broken Note, Hecq… the list could go on and on and on.
2. In which country did you have your best & worst experience playing?
Miike: Best, Belgium all the way baby…. Worst, Kiev… im sure not all organisations there are like that but the guys that booked myself, Cardo’, Duran x3 & i:gor a few years back are fucking horrible bags of shit.
3. If you could stage a rave anywhere, where would you choose?
Miike: Id love to currate a stage at Dour… in fact just play Dour, there or currate a stage at Burning Man in the USA.
4. Where did the name ‘The Teknoist’ come from?
Miike: I just made it up… i make all forms of techno music.. thus i am A and THE…. TEKNOIST. hahaha
5. What’s your actual top 5 tracklist ?
My top 5 atm… jesus, ummmmm….
1.Florence and the Machine – Drumming Song
2.Hans Zimmer – Retreat and Surrender
3.Dj Format feat Sure shot la rock – Dope Pusher
4.Dr Bastardo – The Crimson Mask (Niinja Columbo upcoming)
5.Squarepusher – Dark Steering
6. Where do you see the scene 5 years from now?
Miike: I have no idea, popularity seems to come and go in waves. Right now core has such a strong following and i just hope it stays as strong. My only worry is the closed mindedness of some of the fans. If its not that core n bass snare hit on the 2 (dum, tisch… dum, tisch…) groove ppl dont seem to be interested. It seems they only want a simple groove…. then again wtf do i know.
Core always evolves and im sure il be just as intrigued by it in 5 years time as i am now.
7. whats the goal of your actual music productions
Miike: Just to improve and improve and improve… whether thats apparent i dont know but thats the aim. I just want to be interesting and keep actual ‘music’ involved in my projects.
8. Where do you get your inspiration
Miike: everything, other musicians… movies and escapism in fictional TV shows. That or either my mental health i guess in a way heh.
9. wich artist would like to work with in the future
Miike: Broken Note (possibly very soon happening), Amon Tobin, the dj Producer (i honestly think we could set a piece of wax on fire with the combined energy that we emit at times haha). Hecq and for myself and Scheme Boy to finish our 1st Undead Ronin LP.
lastly big up to the Nekro crew, you guys have relit a dying flame in hardcore with your dedication and your own take on core… respect.
