"My sound is a mixture of background, passion and feeling"
Vicky Montefusco is the DJ and producer who has been connecting the dots between the flourishing notes of the synthesizers, the thunderous drums and the promotion of the arpeggios to a clear precision. Its incredible music launch a breath of fresh air to the underground electronic music panorama, and we love that. Read our interview below to find out more about Montefusco`s wide-spanning influences, creative environment and studio methods.
What initially lead you into the path of electronic music? Do you recall hearing a life-changing record, meeting someone or attending a party in particular?
A bit of everything, I remember that at the beginning I was a true party and djs lover, I started following the pioneers of the Chicago house and Detroit techno in the 90s, and having started to get passionate about the sound a little more progressive , electronic and dark, and therefore similar to my current sounds, in the early 2000s, when I was struck by a set of deep dish, later discovering that many of those tracks played in that set were released many years later. This meant for look forward to me.
How would you define your sound?
A mix of background, passion and feeling
In and out of the electronic music circle, who is an inspiration to you?
From Giorgio Moroder to David August, From Depeche Mode to the obstinacy transmitted by my father.
Would you like to share a set? Can you tell us more about it? When and how was it recorded?
It is a set published by the blog La Haima of my friend Daniel Gregori, registered in Buenos Aires in 2019 where I had the opportunity to participate in the first overseas showcase of the Argentine label Ninefont. In it you can see how I like to mix new tracks with old pearls of the past, which triggered the growth of my background.
What makes a good mix to you?
Technique and choice of tracks. Simple and effective.
What is your study currently made of? Any piece of equipment you would never get rid of?
The "native instruments maschine" for drums, percussion and various effects, plus a bit of Korg and Yamaha synths and why not a lot of VST that make a lot if used in a certain way. And my pair of 1210 technics bought in the late 90's which is the thing I will never part with. I could risk a strong depression :)
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects? Where can we continue to see and hear Vicky?
Obviously here about releases, I have a lot of eps and remixes already on the program, and for the first time in a long time, I went back to collaborating with other artists, both always under the name of Vicky Montefusco and with others "alias", all about radiant and really cool labels.
