Since there have been lot’s off talk about the future of Swedish house scene, we decided to make some research on the future candidates. This stuff is purely hypothetical and we hope that the original SHM won’t start bombarding us by angry emails and lawsuits. =D
The first candidate needs no further introduction. Appart from releasing massive tracks as Dust, Why and latest They never learn, Alaa have also have been busy spitting out very creative remixes one after another.
My main man Kevin caught up with the future star producer to talk about this and that:
I’m starting this interview with a standard question. Who is Alaa?
How does a day in your life look like? You don’t spend all your time in front of a computer producing music?
Not at all. You should know that I only produce at nights when my family is sleeping. I have a regular job. I wake up at 6, check emails then go to my job. When my shift ends, I go home to my wife and kids, and try to spend as much time as possible with them.
Which of your own track are you most satisfied with and why?
That has to be my upcoming track “Apértife”. This is the first time that I create something that can become a bomb on the dancefloor. I never release anything that I’m not 100% satisfied with but as a DJ, I do want my own tracks to work on the dancefloor.
Edit: Final version of Apértife will be released as “Titan”. New EP, Rhea/Titan will be released on Nellie Reocrdings in feb/mars 2009.
Can you live on your music today?
How does the future look for Alaa? What are your plans?
Tell me about the craziest/wildest gig you ever had. (lie a bit so it sounds good 😉
Finally, do you have any yummie secrets to reveal or anything for your readers?
