Dj TiŽsto (part 2)

Question: What's the name of your first release ever ?



I think it's Allure with When She Left but Im not sure because it can
also be Carlos - Silmarilla that I made together with Piet Bervoets, and
he's also in Rank1 together with Benno de Goeij. With the name TiŽsto
it was Theme from Norefjell.



Question: What equipment did you use when you started making you
music?



I had a sampler, a Roland DJ-70 and experimented with sampling during
my set. It was nice to start with. And later on I started to build a studio.

Question:
</font> <font face="Verdana," arial,="Arial," geneva,="Geneva," sans-serif="sans-serif" size="1" color="#000000">How
do you do you compilation CDs? Do you do them live on turntables or do you
make them on a computer?



I do them live, all of my mixes are mixed in one take because I think that's
the way to really put the feeling into it. Because if you hear like the Global
Underground CDs it sounds so technical and you miss the feeling I think.</font>

Question:
Did you use a playlist for Magik 6 - Live in Amsterdam ?



Yeah, I used a playlist because when you sell the CD you have to have promission
to record the tracks before you use them so when I recorded it I knew which
track that was going to be next. I'm very happy with the result because I
took a really big risk recording it live in Amsterdam.



Question: When was Black Hole Recordings founded ?



It was in November 1997 I think. I tried to start my own label at Basic Beat
Recordings but they didn't want me to start my own label so decided to start
on my own. So Black Hole recordings is my own company together with Arny Bink

Do you meet up with Armin, Corsten and others or do you just meet them
in buisness ?



At he moment we are so busy but maybe when we are retired. *laugh*.



Question: Will you play in Sweden soon again ?



I don't have a booking but I'm really up for it because I really like it.
Arrange me a good party and I'll come.



</font> <font face="Verdana," arial,="Arial," geneva,="Geneva," sans-serif="sans-serif" size="1" color="#000000">Question:
How are the plans for the future ?



Next year I want to conquer England, that's my big target. It's going pretty
well there and I got a lot of bookings so I'll work hard there and then I'm
going to to the tour in The States. Finish my album, keep fresh and try to
do new things to keep the trancescene going because at the moment there's
many artists taking advantage of the music and try to make alot of money on
it.

Question:
What do you think of Darude - sandstorm, do you like it
or not ?



Well actually I do like the song but I don't see it as a trancesong.
It's just a commercial, it's nice to hear when you're in a pub drinking
beer.



Question: Do you work as a DJ on fulltime or do you have something
at the side ?



I've got alot of things. I'm DJ:ing ofcourse, I produce records, I have
my recordcompany which I work for and I have the store so that's pretty
much.



Question:
What do you think about the future of trance, how do you
think it will develope and spread all over the world ?



The trance is already big all over the world, right here in sweden the
scene is fresh and still growing which is something to be proud over
because in some countries trance is dead. Nothing new is happening.
I think the future trance will develope and become a little deeper and
get back to the beginning. </font></td>

Question: What do you think about the extended use of drugs in the
tranceculture, or that the trancemusic is related with drugs.



It's not really true, I mean you see drugs everywhere. If you go to a popconsert
or so, it's on all scenes but you see it more on people on the trancescene.
I think the trancemusic is the only music you can listen to without taking
drugs. You can really feel the emotions in it. You can get on another level
without the drugs. If you listen to techno, it so monotone so then you really
would need drugs to enjoy it.
