Having been described by Daniel Avery as “the kind of musical discovery that, were I were a religious man, I would go to bed and pray for every night…”, Dimitri Veimar‘s music has already graced the rosters of stellar labels including Turbo Recordings, Ultramajic, Darkroom Dubs, Gomma & 2020Vision, and his latest “Planet” EP on Dusky’s 17 Steps imprint is no exception to his trademark slick, dark and experimental style.
Thanks for taking the time to record a mix for our podcast series, was there any special concept behind your mix, or tracks played form your own releases?
Thank you for having me on here. I was trying to make this mix with all diversity of sounds, genres and styles I like , listen and play these days. Probably will follow that direction in future, especially with guitar tracks in the beginning which I became a big fan of recently.
What is your thought process when picking out tracks for a podcast, do you pre-select the tracks, or just pick out the first couple and freestyle it from there?
Usually I’m trying to make podcasts which I’ll definitely listen in the car so it never goes wrong in my opinion (lol)
How do you compare playing in a club to recording a podcast, is there much of a change in your mixing style and track selections?
Of course, when playing in a clubs you have to follow certain rules but with podcast you have no boundaries.
What stores or other places do you normally look for new music… is it all sourced online, or do you also pick up the odd bit of vinyl?
Bandcamp, Tailored Communications.
Could you tell us a bit about your most memorable DJ experience?
It’s hard to tell , every gig is a special event for me and it’s always different
What other projects do you have lined up, do you have any new releases or forthcoming gigs we should be watching out for?
I’m preparing few more releases this year in quite new style for me, where I’m rapping in Russian. You can find few tracks in the mix and of course you could follow me on residentadvisor for upcoming gigs and shows. Cheers.
