Watergate 09 mixed by Tiefscwharz
As they are releasing Watergate 09 which they are mixing, Tiefschwarz kindly answered our questions. (Re)discover this Berlin-based famous duet who delivers one of the best album of this end of year !
Hi, It's really cool to have you back on tracks ! First can you tell us what you've done since your last album, Chocolate, was released in 2010 ?
We’ve been concentrating mostly on developing the structure of our label Souvenir which is based here in Berlin. Straight after releasing the album we went on an extensive tour, and besides the usual DJ madness, we were doing a live show which was a great new experience for us.
How do you manage to be in charge of this new compilation of the famous Berlin-based Club Watergate?
We’ve been playing at Watergate regularly for many years now, and we were talking about an addition to the mix series for two years but were busy with the album. We’re really happy it came together now.
How would you describe this Club? How do you feel when you're playing there ?
Besides the perfect size of the club and its two varied floors, its also the sensational location with a perfect view of the Spree and Oberbaumbrücke just in front. I think it’s also the team behind it which makes it very easy to love everything about Watergate.
And what do you think about this format, as you are more used to release album, it's only your second compilation (after Fabric 29 in 2007) ? Is it a way of doing music you like? Maybe is it closer to a live/dj set performance ?
Well, it’s not our second mix, there have been several others but anyway we love them because it always gives us as artists to really dig deep into our musical box. To be part of the Watergate mix series is an honour as we’re one in a line of many fantastic artists who we respect a lot.
Then, what about the tracks you choose on this compilation ? How did you manage to choose those 20 tracks ? Are there only tracks you've already played in live or you'd like to ?
Of course, most of these tracks we often include in our sets, that’s why we chose them!
And finally, what are your next projects ? Are you working on a new album ? And when could we hope to see you in Paris ?
Well, you can see us at Showcase on the 19th November! We’ve started to produce layouts for the new album and if everything goes well, we hope to release it sometime in 2012.
On the behalf of our visitors, we wanted to thank you again for answering our question, and wish you a great success with this cool compilation !
Thank you too !
