ALEX DOLBY: “POKUŠAVAM DA RIZIKUJEM I NAPRAVIM RAZLIČITE STVARI SVAKI PUT!”

 

ENG: You grew up in the golden age of Rome, that’s how they call it. It was the time when the rave and underground culture began to spread incredibly. What had the bigest impacton you during that transformation?

SRB: Odrastao si u takozvanom zlatnom dobu Rima. To je bio period kada su rejv i underground kultura počele neverovatno da se šire. Šta je na tebe imalo največi uticaj tokom te transformacije?

АLEX: Certainly the musical impact was massive on me but if I think about today was the type of aggregation that made us all equal and bound by love for music with hig music culture without YouTube, face book and all this kind of shit but only going to a record shop and try to know more about artists etc etc.

АLEXSvakako je muzički uticaj bio ogroman na mene, ali ako mislim o tome danas, to je bila vrsta neke agregacije koja nas je učinila ravnopravnim i vezala ljubavlju prema muzici sa visoko- kvalitetnom muzičkom kulturom bez YouTube-a, Facebook-om i svim ovim sranjima, već samo odlazak u prodavnicu ploča i pokušavanje da se sazna više o umetnicima itd.

ENG: By yourself in 2013, you opened club Affekt, which aimed to expand the musical culture that you loved so much. Can you tell me how did you came on that idea?

SRB: Sam si otvorio klub Affekt 2013. godine, koji je za cilj imao da širi muzičku kulturu koju si ti voleo. Reci mi kako si došao na tu ideju?

АLEX: In that moment when i decided to open Affekt Club and Affekt recordings i was in a moment of my life who i didnt like what musically i did the 10 years before and this new adventure was a step to change everything in my life. I lost contacts with promoter, agency ecc ecc but when you dont feel what you are doing you have to change and dont care about money and other thinghs who dont make you happy.

АLEX: U tom momentu kada sam odlučio da otvorim Affekt Club i Affekt recordings, bio sam u fazi života kada mi se nije dopadalo šta sam radio pre 10 godina i ova nova avantura je bila korak ka tome da promenim sve u životu. Izgubio sam kontakt sa promoterima, agencijom itd, ali ako ne osećaš ono što radiš, moraš da se promeniš i da ne brineš za novac i druge stvari koje te ne čine srećnim.

ENG: Experimentation and underground are your key words. Tell me, as a producer, how much do you like to experiment with music while you are producing?

SRB: Eksperimentisanje i underground su tvoje dve omiljene ključne reči. Reci mi, kao producent, koliko voliš da eksperimentišeš sa muzikom dok je i sam proizvodiš?

АLEX: Music is changed a lot during the years, many years ago you tried to make a track who people remember the idea you used in the track, now the important for the club music is the right groove you do. I try to make a different stuff everytime and take the risque of this.

АLEXMuzika se promenila mnogo tokom godina, pre mnogo godina ljudi su pokušavali da naprave traku koja će se pamtiti po ideji koja je za nju korišćena, a sada je važno za klupsku muziku da ima pravi groove. Pokušavam da rizikujem i da napravim različite stvari svaki put.

ENG: Your track „Psiko Garden“ was your first track and massive hit and it was remixed serveral times. Which remix do you like the most and why?

SRB: Tvoja prva traka “Psiko Garden” je bila tvoja prva traka i ogroman hit i bila je remiksovana nekoliko puta. Čiji remiks voliš najviše?

АLEX: Of course the Sasha’s remix 🙂 

АLEX: Naravno, Sasha-in remiks 🙂

 

 

ENG: Club Affekt hosted numerous guests such as Francois X, Tommy 47, Norman Nodge and many other respected names in industry. Which performance you call it unforgettable?

SRB: Klub Affekt je bio domaćin mnogim izvođačima kao što su Francois X, Tommy 47, Norman Nodge i mnoga druga imena u industriji. Čiji nastup je ostao nezaboravan za tebe?

АLEX: I had many memorable nights but i cant forget when i played with Jeff Mills.

АLEX: Imao sam mnogo nezaboravnih noći, ali ne mogu da zaboravim kada sam puštao sa Jeff Mills-om.

ENG:You performed at so many famous places such as Ministry of Sound in London and DC10 at Ibiza. What is one of your favorite destination where you like to perform?

SRB: Nastupao si na mnogim poznatim mestima kao što su Ministry of Sound u Londonu i DC10 na Ibici. Koja je jedna od tvojih omiljenih destinacija na kojoj si nastupao?

АLEXYes i played in many venues during the years but i think each venues gave me something in bad or good.

АLEXDa, nastupao sam na mnogim mestima tokom godina, ali mislim da mi je svako mesto dalo nešto dobro ili loše.

ENG: Can you share the secret with us…What does  ’Dolby’ stands for? Is it because of ’Dolby technology’ or it is something else?

SRB: Jel možeš da podeliš tajnu sa nama…Šta znači „Dolby“? Jel to zbog „Dolby tehnology“ ili je to zbog nečeg drugog?

АLEXHaha top secret!

АLEXHaha top tajna!

ENG: This is not your first visit to Belgrade. Last time we had an amazing party. Are you excited for returning back and what Belgrade audience can expect this time?

SRB: Ovo nije tvoja prva poseta Beogradu. Prošli put smo imali neverovatnu žurku. Jel si uzbuđen što se vraćaš i šta Beogradska publika može da očekuje ovoga puta?

АLEXBelgrade is an amazing beautifull city and people are really good! The places expecially drugstore are really quality underground and you can feel this in the air. Really looking forward to came back.

АLEXBeograd je neverovatan prelep grad i ljudi su stvarno dobri! Mesta, a posebno Drugstore su stvarno kvalitetan underground i to se može osetiti u vazduhu. Stvarno se radujem što se vraćam.
