Are you into Electronica? Hard Dance? Trance/Techno? Do you like to hear ear pleasing, hard driving, foot moving, body grooving Electronic compositions encompassing virtually all electronic genres? Then you’ve gotta give a listen to this cutting edge artist from Hannover, Niedersachsen, Germany…top shelf amongst modern-day Electronic composers…djspaceAce…
GOM: Give us a little background on djspaceAce and Y-Orbit…
djspaceAce: Started in 1987…but not officially until 1995…with my live act called Y-Orbit. After some live preformances…clubs and tours…some people would often ask me how they could buy a cd or vinyl of my stuff…can we hear it on radio stations? I knew they couldn’t…so I started my online work :)…first with personal artist sites like Y-Orbit (with over 750 000 plays in 1 1/2 years)…then in the middle of 2000 with the project “dj spaceAce @ work” (to date also over 200 000 listenings). In 2001 I finally started my own Internet Music Label; www.interconnected.de was born…my intention with this community was to build up an independent artist pool. We now have 187 members from all over the world.
GOM: If you could describe your work in 5 statements, what would they be?
djspaceAce: 1. fight with my computer system…LOL 2. webdesign 3. emails emails emails…lots of them 🙂 4. administation…all servers on go..;) 5. searching for the meaning of life and living it fully!!
GOM: What inspired you to get involved in the field of Electronic composition?
djspaceAce: Everything that makes one emotional inside and gives inspiration…simple things.
GOM: Which genre do you feel most comfortable with?
djspaceAce: I think Dark Trance or Dark Wave…but what is Dark?? I really prefer moll akkords 😉 …but I love powerful and energyzed drums, too…hahaha…I really don’t know …I think the answer to this question would be Electronic Music in general!
GOM: Tell us a little about the Electronic scene in the European theatre…
djspaceAce: Nothing really interesting to tell…but definitely commercial garbage, ESPECIALLY here in Germany!
GOM: Which one of your various compositions do you regard as your personal favorite and why?
djspaceAce: Mind Control… We are all fallen angels, with one wing. Only if we embrace us, we can fly.
GOM: Give us a little info about your NMA, Interconnected, at MP3.com…
djspaceAce: Thats easy…MP3.com was the place for the Indie Artist…but seems to be dying as Vivendi Universial has taken over. Our goal with InterConnected was and is to build up such a place again. We found strong and powerful partners here in Germany to help us reach this goal and we are currently working on our OMD.
GOM: Who are some of your favorite artists, in general, regardless of genre?
djspaceAce: I am a child of the 80s. I love all music from this decade although one of my biggest favorites is Front 242 🙂
GOM: What advice would you have to offer to those who are looking to break into the spotlight in the field of Electronic music?
djspaceAce: Keep your mind open…and NEVER GIVE UP!
GOM: Where can the good people reading this interview hear some of your super-sweet ear candy?
djspaceAce: Currently at www.mp3.com/dj_work…but only for a short time…soon I will move all my tunes to InterConnected…
