Dj / Muttonheads - Interview

Publié le 11 novembre 2010 par Djaroy
English Through a new exclusive interview, Actualités Electroniques presents you a French DJ and producer bearer of a young and fresh generation of artists who revived the electronic music scene in France in the mid 2000’s. He is Muttonhead and hit the chart in France with such iconic tracks as "To You" or "Make Your Own Kind Of Music" that I’m sure you know. First, I wanted to thank Muttonheads for the time he gave us. It is even more a pleasure, as he is an artist I’m following from his debut. So with a kind of apprehension, here is the interview. "Hi Jerome, I don’t know if it bothers you, but I prefer to call you by your real name, it is friendlier. Some days ago you released "Moment of happiness" with a remix of Dr. Kucho! that we reviewed on Actualites Electroniques some days ago. In order to know your news and before we returns to the heart of the subject, could you please tell us what will be your next release? > "Moment Of Happiness" is the first single extracted from my new album that is coming out soon, the second will be published in January. It is called "Trust You Again" with a brand new featuring of a young and motivated female singer. I can already tell you, it's gonna be huge! Meanwhile there will be surely new remixes available ;) Let’s get back to your roots. If I think there were some waves of performances in your music career, including 2004 with the outstanding lineup of productions "To You", "Smashing music" and "I'll Be There", could you please tells us how was the beginning of your career? > It would be a bit long to explain everything, but I’ve been producing for almost 20 years now with some “empty” moment of inspiration. "To You" is clearly a production that puts me back on track, I felt some potential, so I sent it as a demo to Serial Records who signed it immediately. In 2004, I was in a sampling mood and "Smashing Music" and "I'll Be There" where born from that. It has been quite a success. Thanks to FG (a French radio station), everything truly started. What a coincidence. Indeed, Concerning "I'll Be There", I stumbled across "Back in My Arms" from the Pointer Sisters by chance some days ago, which is quite close. Could you please tell us more about this track? > "I'll Be There" revolves around a sample from the track you’ve just quoted above, so it's normal they look like each others! Concerning its story, at that time there was a hit of Dave Armstrong "Make Your Move" with a sample of the Pointer Sisters. So I started to listen to the discography of the three sisters, in search of a new sample, and it was a jackpot with "Back In My Arms" :) As I mentioned earlier, 2004 was probably one of your most prolific years. How do you explain that? Where did you get all these brilliant inspirations? > I think I came out of a long slump, musically speaking. I began to have new idea when I began to use the software Reason and I must admit that the tracks chained really fast! The inspiration was, is and will be about italo disco melodies that are very close from what I love. Then, around 2006 there was this project Serial Crew, with Mathieu Bouthier and Demon Ritchie. It gave birth notably to "Make Your Own Kind of Music" and has been a second breath of oxygen for you. This track has definitely made you one of the best producers of the moment. How this project was born? > The idea comes from Mathieu, who is a hysterical fan of the series Lost. Therefore the track which opens the season 2 (Mama Cass Elliot - MYOKOM) caught our attention and our ears! We’ve tried something, without really believing in it, but once we’ve got the loop, we thought it was nearly perfect! I think it's the fastest song I composed. After a few hours and 2 evenings, the trac
