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
