Shogun Audio Warehouse Party Interview


04 Apr 2013





Shogun Audio are presenting one of their biggest lineups to date at the Great Suffolk Street Car Park on Friday 26th April. Headlining the night are Noisia, Shogun's finest Friction, and Alix Perez, but the lineup goes deep with names such as Rockwell, The Prototypes and Spectrasoul, amongst others.


Guests and surprises will be many, and a great night is in store for all those who head down. We got the full picture from SGN:LTD rising stars Technimatic, who talk to us about what they are personally looking forward to.

How does it feel to be playing at the upcoming warehouse event in April?
It feels great! The first Shogun Warehouse Party was one of the events of 2012 so we're chuffed to be on the bill again.


What are you going to be aiming for with your set?
What we always aim for, really - A bit of everything. From deep and musical stuff through more stripped-back minimal bits to big hands-in-the-air moments. It'll all be in there!


How does playing at a massive venue like this compare with playing some of the smaller spots we’ve seen you at? Is your preparation any different?
I guess some of the mellower tracks we might play at a more intimate show might be off the menu, but the preparation is pretty much the same. It's still all about connecting.


Who else are you guys looking forward to seeing at Gt Suffolk Street ?
EZ is always worth paying money for. In terms of selection and technical skill, he's one of the top, top guys on the planet.






Where else can we catch you playing live coming up?
You can catch us at Cable on March 30th and in Brno, Czech Republic on April 12th. We're then playing at Nu:Logic's album launch at Fabric on Friday 19th, Concorde 2 in Brighton on the 20th and of course the Shogun Warehouse Party!


It’s been a few months now, are you settled into the Shogun camp? How are you feeling about things now?
We're feeling good! It's been great meeting up with Ed (Friction) and Keir (K-Tee) to discuss music, and meeting all the other guys on our DJ travels. We feel very settled.


What can we look forward to in terms of releases? Is an album a possibility?
We've just locked down our next Shogun release, which will come in the form of a 4 track EP, released sometime at the back end of May. There will also probably be a track on a new compilation at some point this year. And yes, we are indeed working on our debut album! But there's no concrete time frame for that at the moment. We're just enjoying the writing process and seeing where it leads us.


Who’s hot right now in your musical worlds?
It's all about early 80s Japanese ambient music in the Technimatic world right now. 'Still Way' by Satoshi Ashikawa is a minimal melancholy masterpiece.


Lastly, who would you like to shout out?
Everyone who has bought our music over the past 12 months, and our cats, Barley and Derek.


Make sure you grab your tickets now, here and here
