Decent Rides and his Let Your Hair Down EP
- Hi guys, how are you and how does it feel like releasing music on Apparel Music?
We’re good, thanks. If you are into the scene, there is actually no way around Apparel Music. For us it has always been a guarantee for varied releases, fancy merch and an innovative overall concept. So when we started making music, we had a pretty good idea of where we were going. Therefore we are very delighted to be a part in the Apparel Cosmos now. This debut is a pretty big thing for us. Thank you for getting us on board.
- Talk us through the creative process behind the making of this EP. How did it come about and how did you work on it?
It’s always our ambition to bring a lot of variety to our releases. We try to combine different styles that harmonize well and work both on the dance floor and in the tub. Since we both made music long before our collaboration, each of us has a lot of old and dusty sketches with potential on the hard drive. We revise them together and make contemporary versions of them that we can identify with. Sebastian’s seven year old son is also an integral part of our studio sessions and a great source of inspiration.
Sometimes he joins our session and just hammering the MPC. We record every jam and try to integrate it into our ideas. Because of his impartiality and objective approach the most randy things happening. This is how the Track “Otis” came about. Our EP is a mix of new jams and some old ones with a fresh makeup. Gear we’ve used: Moog Subsequential 32, Roland TR-8S, Ableton Push and various VSTs.
- Can you share with us three tracks that inspired you during the making of?
