999999999 kick off their brand new digital label with young and super talented artists. Fifth EP includes five epic industrial techno anthem by the enigmatic duo RIOT CODE.
We have had the pleasure of interviewing them and this has been the result.
Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music?
We’re both from Northern Ireland in a little city called ‘Derry’
We’ve both always worked in and around the music scene the last 11+ years doing various projects so we’ve always had our passions with in the industry.
How is your sound evolving? What artists and genres do you enjoy mixing right now?
We always have our ears to the ground, finding some great rising talent whilst always record digging through the years of releases -
We’ve been really digging Sully - 5ives, klangkuenstler, Airod recent release on Molekul, but we listen to all types of genres so our style is forever evolving and can change to something completely different to a previous release but more so we don’t box our selfs into one genre as music should be explored.
How do you feel that your music influences or impacts your listeners?
We just want people to enjoy listening to our music and have a good time at the shows, we’ve had massive support over the last 2 and half years so were just very grateful that we’ve have that and we’d like to continue to bring music to everyone that digs it.
What projects are you working on right now? What can you tell us about your last job?
Right now, we’re working on 3 EPs for some of the biggest legends in the techno scene!We’re always working on some form of music, right now we’ve just released our ep ‘The Summoning’ with techno giants 999999999 label NineTimesNine but in the studio we’re 4 EPs ahead of this release.
Where are you and what have you been doing now?
We’ve been touring around our home country Ireland, selling out north and south of the isle on our headline shows, we’ve been enjoying getting to meet alot of the people that support our music and hearing their feedback on it
Other than that exactly what we’ve mentioned above alot of EP work and recording ALOT of mixes!
Has that sound changed a lot in recent years? What is your musical criteria?
We think, we’re constantly evolving our sound - never sticking in within a specific box we enjoy so much genres and we like to have all our music interests in our tracks even if it might be something small from the opposite genre.
Do you feel safe now to play a more experimental sound?
In a way, we never really cared about being ‘safe’ for say, we always just done what we liked and the sound we digged at the time, if anyone doesn’t like it that’s on them cause these tracks are bangin’ lol
We all know that the digital revolution has affected sales, but has it affected creativity?
Ah, yes for sure! You have to think more-so out of the box now to get your release infront of people, though its got us being more creative and we dig that!
Ya have to stay with the digital revolution! Times change and if you don’t stay with it you can be easily left behind.
