Hi Killawatt, thank you for doing our latest Kittencast. We love it. There are quite a few exclusives in there; can you tell us a bit abut the mix?
It’s basically just a picture of where i’m at musically right now. It ranges from soundscapes / field recordings all the way through to straight techno bangers. I’m not really one for pure, relentless dancefloor function. There’s also some new stuff from myself and a couple of other producers I work closely with.
How would you describe your sound in three words?
Gritty, full, percussive.
What have been your highlights of 2014?
Finishing my album!!! Took nearly 18 months of pulling my hair out but to actually have a finished album all done and dusted is a major relief and achievement for me. Getting a kitten was also a major highlight.
And, what does 2015 hold for Killawatt?
Well there’s the album early next year which has my full focus right now, then you’ll probably see a couple more releases under Killawatt and a couple more in various different guises. Hopefully have 1 or 2 A/V shows on the go also…
What’s it like being part of Derelicht?
Productive. It was the kick up the arse I needed to actually get things happening. I’m very laid back and Derelicht is the other end of the spectrum in terms of making things happen, so in all it’s been a pretty productive and positive relationship thus far! No doubt you’ll see some fruits of our collaborative labour next year.
How will you be spending your NYE this year?
God knows. That’s far too far in the future.
And finally, the one we ask everyone, what would you do as a techno kitten for the day?
Probably do exactly what my kitten does all day. Demand copius amounts of attention, eat, sleep, eat, squeak at birds through the window and run around like a maniac. Life is so much simpler as a kitten…
