We had a little chat with them about their release and more:

1. Congratulations on the release of your debut EP – “Bitch to Quit / Disjointed” . First off, tell us about the quirky title?

Thank you so much guys. We are stoked.

Bitch To Quit the title came from the vocal sample included in the track.

Its also a message we want to put out to the kids ‘stop doing drugs’ 😛

2. This is a question which will help many, how did you start on it and what was your inspiration?

The inspiration for both these tracks was simply the state of mind we were in at that point of time. We usually focus on the rhythm initially slowly creating grooves ending with a lot of effects and an apt arrangement. Through our sets and our productions, the aim is always to get people locked into a groove.

3. Whats your studio setup right now? Send in a pic?

The studio set up at the moment is quite simple.

We are running Logic and Ableton on our macbook Pro’s.

Running through a Digidesign Mbox/Focusrite Saffire Soundcard.

Yamaha HS80M Monitors and alternatively HS50M’s.

Lastly a Native Instruments Maschine.

4. What’s next from the Oozeundat stable ?

We are currently in the process of finishing our next EP.

Simultaneously working on a bunch of other tracks.

The goal this year is to put out as much quality music as possible.

5. Which music producers are keeping you inspired at the moment, name your top 5 picks and why?

Arjun Vagale

Alberto Ruiz

Carlo Lio

Project AKC

Whyt Noyz

Because all of them are making some amazing music.

Their tracks are quite stable in our sets.

*OUT NOW* | Ash Roy – Hourglass / Beatbasket EP [Vapour Recordings]

Ash Roy is on his way back from a massive 2 month Europe Tour!

Here’s a video of him and Ashvin Mani Sharma playing at the  FUSION FESTIVAL !

Ash’s latest release ‘Hourglass/beatbasket EP’ is OUT NOW on Kasey Taylor’s VAPOUR RECORDINGS!

We have a chat with the man himself:

First of all Congratulations Ash on the release of your wicked new release – Hour Glass/Beat Basket on Vapour Recordings, tell us more about this EP?

Thanks a lot. Well I produced this Ep a few months before I left for Berlin. The vibe I had in mind was Deep Tech House and that’s what I stuck to. Both the tracks have vocal samples flowing through to give it some funk. Hour Glass is a track that can be played in the middle of a set while Beat Basket can be a starter track. I sent both these tracks to Kasey Taylor, and Kasey immediately replied saying that he wanted to sign these to Vapour Recordings.

______________

 What is the story behind both the track names?

Well I thought of Hour Glass coz the track has a sample saying “ That first beat is right on time “ hence I called it Hour Glass. Initially I thought of calling Beat Basket “ Movin On “ but then I thought of Beat Basket coz it’s a very deep groovy track which I would only find in a basket full of beats.

______________

You’ve been on a crazy European Tour.. What was your best gig? Share a mad pic of one of your gigs from your phone!

All my gigs this year have been spectacular from Fusion Festival to the Holi Open Air to Dresden to Oberhausen to Tresor to Mikz. Its been a wonderful tour. There is one Pic I would like to share which was just amazing. It’s the Belrin Holi Open Air organised by our friends. It just made my day when I saw the Berliners celebrating Holi like any other Indian. It was just epic!

 _____________

Who is your all time favourite DJ?

Josh Wink

 ___________

In your opinion what city in India takes the music in the best? What city do you like playing in the most?

Well the response is great in all the big cities but Mumbai tops them all. I like playing in Mumbai a lot.

 ______________

How did you separate yourself from any other DJs/Producers? What advice can you offer to someone young trying to create Techno music?

I like to make my sets more interactive, so i play live percussion when I do a Dj set or a Live set. The advise I can give is that to believe in yourself and don’t try and copy other artist … be original.

 ______________

Finally, what’s coming next for you?

Well a lot of releases to be out soon, and there is something I would like to share but I rather keep it a surprise. Wait for it  🙂 Also don’t forget to check out a collab I did with Ashvin & Shilpa Rao for the final episode of Coke studios this month (August 25th on MTV India).

We’re also celebrating Ash’s release with a fun party at THE ZOO, New Delhi on August 25th! Click on the flyer below for event details!
