Piek is a Spanish producer, DJ and vinyl collector. His latest release is out on Spanish label Sincopat. We asked him a few Qs.
Hola Piek, wow your new EP ‘Lost Treasures’ is going to pack a punch on the dancefloor! Have you been playing it out much? Which tracks have gone down well?
Thank you so much! To be honest I really didn’t have the chance to play it that much because I stopped doing gigs for a while, but other fellow dj’s told me all the tracks work very well on the dancefloor, specially Not Afraid.
Your last EP on Sincopat was a big success – what makes Piek and Sincopat such a successful combo?
Working with Sincopat is always a big pleasure. They pay extra attention to every detail (design, mastering, promotion etc) plus I’m a big fan of AFFKT’s music, so I guess all this makes me work with a higher motivation. On the other hand, I think it’s essential for the health of our scene that Spanish artists focus on releasing music on Spanish labels.
We love that you post your ‘Wax of the Week’ on your facebook page. What’s you ‘Wax of 2014’ so far?
Well, this is a very difficult question because the music released this year is amazing!! But I will go for C.P.I. ‘El Tunel / Proceso‘ released via Hivern Discs.
We see you also post a ‘Goodnight Track’ is that one to fall to sleep to?
Exactly! That was the idea when I started sharing “the goodnight track”. I love sharing music from artists I like with other people.
What does the rest of the year hold in store for you?
It looks truly amazing. I’m working on some beautiful projects making music for advertising and also finishing my debut album with the collaboration of some incredibly talented singers and musicians.
And finally, the one we ask everyone, what would you do as a techno kitten for the day?
I have to say there aren’t any record shops where I live, so I would love to spend a whole day digging and shopping vinyls at a record store.
