"I’m always digging music and I always like to play different things and gnres on my sets"
Joint4Nine creates music that works in all settings and transcends genres. His openness to a wide range of sound is what has both made him a widely loved favourite, but also someone who operates in his own parallel musical world. We had a chance to talk to him, so enjoy your reading and check out his latest releases.
When and how did you become interested in Electronic Music?
Hi there guys.
I think that was around 2004 and 2005. I grew up my tennage by listening rock and metal, so when I started studying “SOUND ENGINEERING” I started listening gnres such as Disco, Funk, Soul and Hip Hop. So this music started shaping my taste in House Music and Electronic Music.
How do you rate the career you've had and what were the reasons that led you to start?
Well I started deejaying around 2007 and 2008, one of my best friends and partners with Nómada Records taught me with a Dennon 4500 cd players and everyday was practicing (LOL those days were pretty rough to learn). I love music and I love deejaying and mixing It. you know! , I’m always digging music and I always like to play different things and gnres on my sets.
My career as a dj producer started a bit late. I’m a Sound Engineer but not a musician. So I started doing beats around 2013 but no seriously until these past 2 years. I’m not consired myself a good music producer or musician. I’m still learning, searching and improving my sound. There still is a long way to road.
How did you spend your time in the first quarantine and what will you do if they confine us again?
I stopped partying and drinking and I spent my time doing lots and lots of music. You know, learning, searching and improving my sound. If they confine us again, I will do the same thing.
What was the thinking behind making “P-Connection”?
I deeply love black and Motown Music so I started making beats and music by sampling The Temptations, Commodores, Marvin Guy, Az, P Funk All starz, Four Tops, The Velvelettes and among others. This Ep is a tribute and hommage to those artists who found this culture that we call House Music.
What performance would you recommend us, of which you are most proud, so that we can watch on Soundcloud or YouTube?
Awghh there are so many artists with performances that I really admire. But I will tell you two that I’ve been following and admiring lately. The first one is the french producer “LB a.k.a Labat”. I love his Deep and RAW sound. He’s always digging and trying new things on his music, and that makes him so versatile and unique. His live set “1993 Elevation” is old school and dope.
The second one is a british band called “IDLES”. Damn this band made me believe again in rock nowdays. Their sound and message is so unique, honest, RAW, uplifiting and agressive . I’m stuck with his music and I can’t stop listening. It’s the same thing that I felt when I Heard legends “Tage Against The Machine” for very first time back in the 90’s.
What projects are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on some new music as Joint4nine for 2021, I’m also have a producer B-side Project called “Rush City” alongside my buddy Jonahlo and We will be releasing our 2nd Ep in 2021 on Canadian Yung Dumb Records. I’m also running my own record label called “Nómada Records” alongside my family Nicolas Saavedra, Andrés Tarquino and Felipe Gordon. We have just released our latest vinyl reléase; an edit series with German chief Delfonic which was sold out in fifteen days. Nómada Records Schedule for 2021 is looking pretty good so far so stay tuned.
Do you have any final words of wisdom?
Be inspired always.
