    Ahead of the ‘illumiNaughty Halloween Takeover’ event we catch up for a chat with Micha the man behind trance project Freaked Frequency. Micha has been releasing music since 2005 with two studio albums under his belt and huge hits on labels such as Chemical Crew, Vision Quest, Noga and many more!


    Hi Micha hows your day going, what are you up to?

    Micha : Hey guys, I am waiting for end of this tropic summer in Belgrade. It been too hoot honestly 🙂 .
    Its been quite busy summer for me, after decent number or festivals and outdoor events I came back to studio to finish my new E.P. for Didy`s (Bizzare Contact) label “Main Stage records”. Should be out during October….

    You have been producing music for many years now but can you tell us a little about
    the early days and how you came to be involved with the trance scene?

    Micha : Well I started to experiment with producing music around year 2000 under huge influence of my older brother and my good friend Toca ( ex Alternative Control ) . Back then after all wars and bombing in Serbia not so many people could afford decent computer thanks to all mess and economical situation, so I was hanging out at my friend`s house and his computer and there I first started to make music with old programs like Fast Tracker, ASX, Buzz,etc…

    Your latest album Nothing Stops has been a huge success, how long did it take you
    to produce this album and do you have a particular favorite track from it?

    Micha : It took about 7,8 months to finalize it. After that maybe 1 month to choose the right mastering for the album, so lets say 9 months in total.Lets say that Floating, Primary condition and Nothing Stops are tracks that I love the most from that album.


    The Freaked Frequency sound is very distinct, can you tell us a bit about what equipment you are using in the studio and what process do follow when making a track?

    Micha : Every producer have his ways how to make a track and all this ways are pretty different. Me for instance like to collect inspiration thru whole month and just in last couple of days of the month I produce whole track. About equipment I use nothing special… Dynaudio BM 6a (monitors), good solid computer with i7 processor, TC Impact twin (sound card), few MIDI controllers and some basic room acoustics.

    You have been collaborating with several artists throughout the years such as perplex, wega, and silver sun, How does it work when working with other artists do meet up in the studio or work on tracks online?

    Micha : To make a good track one should leave stress and problems behind studio door. In my opinion clean mind and relaxed mood is key to make a good track. Most of the collaborations that i made were done online.

    Do you have more plans for future collaborations coming up soon?

    Micha : Like I siad new E.P. is planed within next few months. There will be collaboration with Israeli act “Faders” and possible one more with my mates from “Silver Sun”

    To produce music takes a hell of a lot of commitment and time, what drives you to produce music and do you feel psytrance music brings positive aspects or influences into your personal life?

    Micha : That’s very true. I am happy that making music fills me with joy,same as it was in beginning. Its an awesome way to relax ones mind from all daily problems.

    What are your main musical influences aside from trance what other music do you listen to?

    Micha : I enjoy listening almost every kind of music. My big influence from where I draw my inspiration is Serbian and Balkan ethno music.

    You have toured extensively having played everywhere from America to Japan, what has been your favourite gig so far and why?

    Micha : There are moments when everything fits in right way… The energy and structure of people, venue, weather, sound system. So I could point 2 events where that feeling was the highest. That would be one gig of mine in Serbia and one in my second favorite county Portugal.

    The Trance scene has developed incredibly over the last 10 years gaining a huge international audience, what do you think is it about Trance and Trance culture that makes it appeal to such a diverse range of people and what changes have you noticed in the scene with its increasing popularity?

    Micha : Well I believe that every music genre have its own highest peak. For example for the FULL ON its was from 2006-2008, after that I guess artists stared to make too many hybrids with FULL ON and ELECTRO HOUSE, TECHNO, etc . At this time I think the scene was a bit saturated, so the people moved on to PROGRESSIVE which was more close to some original PSY sound and in this moment its very popular everywhere.

    We are all extremely excited here at illumiNaughty to have you playing at the event! Have you played in the UK before and what can we expect from your set?

    Micha : I am really glad that you feel this way 🙂 I played just one in London at some smaller party and I was thrilled!
    I have no doubt that in Manchester will be even better!

    And Finally What are your top five favorite tracks that are really doing it for you at the moment?

    Micha : 1. Bizzare Contact & Vibe Tribe – Out of Balance

    2. Freaked Frequency – At the front door
    3. Freaked Frequency & Silver Sun – Tandava
    4. Animalis – Sorry if Im hard with you
    5. G.M.S. – Freak Out

    Hi Joe hows your day going, what you up to?

    Just got up and am making this interview in my living room before I have some breakfast and walk through central Brighton to get to my studio where I am putting the finishing touches on the Sonic Species RMX of Techno Widows by Astrix.

    Can you tell us a bit about how you first got involved in the scene?

    I attended my first trance party in 2000 in countryside of Kent in the South of England. It was a Liquid Connective party and I had one of the most powerful dance floor experiences of my life. Following that period me and some friends from Kent formed Organized Kaos and made outdoor parties of our own for some years. It was in the Organized Kaos and later Liquid parties that I cut my teeth as a DJ and producer.

    What music where you into before trance?

    I was in a Punk band from 13-16, then I went to a few hard house parties, acid techno and drum and bass and began DJing those styles. Shortly after that I heard trance and fell in love. I have also had a live band for 10 years now called Bonze (Bonze [1]) – we are a Psychedelic Audio-Visual Dance band.

    Your new album, ‘Unleash the Beast’ is an absolute stormer and has been a massive success. How do feel your sound has progressed since your last release?

    The album is a combination of classic Sonic Species sound with some fresh new vibes and elements. I feel like the sound is tighter and more powerful than before with more impact than previous work. I think the Sonic Species sound is more defined than ever before.

    You have had a pretty hectic touring schedule to say the least. What’s been your favorite gig so far?

    Favorite gig so far was closing the main stage or Ozora Festival 2012 on the second to last day. That was the best gig of my life.

    With the decline in album sales over recent years, a lot of artists make their living playing live and some seem to get fed up of all the travel associated with this. Is this a part of the job you enjoy or has the novelty worn off?

    The novelty has worn off most of the time but 2012 seems to be taking me to many places that I have never been before like Japan, Australia and Thailand so in those more exotic places things have more novelty value for sure. Other than that I still love touring and seeing the world but the thing I love the most is actually playing music to all the people around the world. That for me is still my no.1 passion.

    Do you have any funny stories from party’s or anecdotes you could share with us?

    Haha yeah, I have quite a few of those as it goes. Most of them are pretty embarrassing to be honest. A quick recent one is getting very drunk on Saki in Japan a few weeks ago (and i don’t like that stuff at the best of times) and then going to a big club night in Tokyo with my tour manager and some other artists and DJs. Kinetics, a South African DJ insisted that I have a shot of Tequila which I really really hate. I said “no, its not a good idea” and all that but somehow was persuaded into drinking the shot whilst standing at the crowded main bar of the venue. As soon as the Tequila hit my taste buds I was instantly sick, stopping it at the last minute with my hand. I then ran as fast as I could through the club with my hand on my mouth past all the confused Japanese party goers and burst through the exit and then through any service door and back entrance or exit I could find. I just remember thinking I better just keep on running as far as i can through as many doors as possible. Tron and Kinetics found me about an hour and a half later in a busy family bowling alley on the bottom floor of the building just hanging out with a soft drink in my hand and calmly filming the scene from my Galaxy S2.

    Where would be your dream gig be if you could play anywhere?


    England has always been at the forefront of the scene. Why do you think this is and how do you feel UK parties differ from those going on in the rest of the world?

    I think the UK parties had some serious edge in the 2000 – 2004 period. I think this was because there was a lot of new cutting edge sounding trance coming from England at that time. Everything sounded fresh and modern as the sound evolved from Goa to Psy with bigger baselines and better production. I think this charged the UK scene with an energy like no other place in the world.

    Which artist/producer would you say you admire most?

    That’s very hard to say as there are so many. I admire people like Simon Posford for his pure originality and skill as a producer and at the same time I admire equally many guys from around the world for making pure banging psytrance. To give you some clue, the producers coming up in the UK and Israel from 2000 – 2005 we some of my favorites for my DJ sets.

    You go to a desert island and can only take three things with you. What would they be?

    My Macbook Pro
    My Galaxy 2 to tether internet to my Mac Book Pro
    My Girlfriend
    (no way i gonna stay on the island that long anyways!)

    Whats your top 5 tracks of the moment?
    Starlight – Intergalactic
    Generation X – Sonic Species
    Deep and Down – Waio + Pixel + Black and White
    Amino Acid – Atomic Pulse
    Into the New World – Avalon (Sonic Species RMX)
