Hi Blende, how are you?
Very well thank you! Getting ready to have some dinner shortly and just going through some promos – music and food, can’t complain!
At Dim Mak we’re still not sure, so please help me out.
Is it pronounced “Blend” or “Blend-e”? And where does the name come from?
To be honest it can be whatever you want it to be. I normally myself say Blend-ay (as in rhyming with grey, day, lay etc..), in Sweden I say Blend-uh (would rhyme with French “lait” or “parfait”) but if someone says blend – e or blend I won’t make a fuss about it.
It’s just a silly name that stuck and doesn’t really mean anything. I couldn’t use Blondie as it was taken so this was the next best thing.. In German though I’ve heard it means a poser who thinks he’s the shit but in reality is a loser. I always liked that meaning as it makes it not very serious, which is exactly what this name is not. The only thing I’m serious about is the way the music sounds
What’s this I hear about you wearing woman’s jeans and loving white wine?
Haha, where did you hear that..? Not to say it’s not true; I once got a pair of jeans from an excess stock box when in New York, meant for a woman but it fit me really well so I just kept it. That’s the only pair I have though so it’s debatable if I do wear women’s jeans. I’m not even sure if I still have them. The white wine thing is true, though. I drink more white wine than water, I think. I don’t really see the issue, although in the UK a lot of people seem to have an issue when you order white wine in a bar or pub. I guess if you’re not drinking lager you’re not a real lad according to the standard, but if that’s how it is I couldn’t care less if I wasn’t one.
What’s your favorite fish dish?
Haha, you’ve done your homework! Black cod is a favourite, japanese style
Do you or does your mum still have the stereo with the two tape decks?
Neither, although I do think it’s in storage somewhere in Stockholm.. Will have to get back to you on this one
Your site http://www.blende.co.uk doesn’t go anywhere…?
I know.. It used to, but the site was taken offline recently due to being updated, which has dragged on a bit now. Will have to get back to you on this one, too
I love Metro Area’s chilled disco vibe. Don’t you?
Who, in his or her (or as we say in Sweden – hen’s) right mind, wouldn’t?
New or old Disco? And why?
Old disco if we’re talking actual disco, but new disco if we’re talking electronic music with a disco twang.
Do you think you’ll go back to live in Stockholm some day?
Perhaps you could act as a tour guide and inspire all the American people to go to Stockholm?
Not a chance. Unless someone would pay me to. Which I guess is what a tour guide gets. So yeah, probably. I’ll take you to see the king, his wife, his mistress and her lover.
When is Synapse coming out? Any other upcoming releases or remixes we should know about? Will you be playing any new stuff at Dim Mak Tuesdays on Tuesday February the 19th?
It’s coming out in a couple of days ago, i.e. the 11th of February. So, it’s available to buy now or download from your nearest pirate bay, whichever you morally prefer. I’ve got a follow up to my last single on Eskimo Recordings in the making, which should hopefully be coming out in the next few months, as well as a bunch of remixes for various artists and labels – including one for you, you lucky dog(s?)!
Finish the sentence: I should come and see Blende at Dim Mak Tuesdays because…
my bucket list wouldn’t be complete without it!
We present an exclusive premiere of “Jack Hammer” which is the hard hitting new single from a collaboration between well known London producer Riton, who started DJ’ing in Newcastle at the tender age of 14, and London born but now based in Germany house artist TAI.
This track is based around a pounding beat and what does sound alot like a sampled jackhammer combined with furious, wailing synth stabs and then with the occasional bleepy horns weaved in around the breaks.
TAI is part of the Dim Mak family and has released multiple EP’s on our record label. We’ve also released Riton’s “Ritontime” EP back in 2011. On February 12th TAI will be releasing another EP on Dim Mak called “Tailand”. This EP is a 2-track EP, along with a remix by Peking Duk. You can now pre-order the “Tailand” EP on iTunes.
