DT:Premiere | William Welt – Stalker [DEAD CERT. Records] (incl. Q&A)


Death Techno’s own DEAD CERT. Records began releasing digitally in 2013 and has gained huge support thus far from many of Techno’s leading tastemakers including James Ruskin, Dave Clarke, Rebekah, Cari Lekebusch and Alan Fitzpatrick charting and set listing tracks.

After much planning and patience DEAD CERT. makes a move into its first vinyl only release that features original material from label bosses William Welt & Jack! Who? along with a freaky remix from New York vinyl head DJ Spider of Plan B Recordings and Berlin’s enigmatic Killekill.

Stalker” is a dark and twisted monster, that broods from the bubbling bottom end. Added to the tension are metallic sheens and a sinister, yet dreamy atmosphere that pushes forward with a dirty groove making it a diverse production to suit different moods.

> 01. What was the thinking behind this track and did you achieve what you set out?
The track started with the bass line and a “Rip and Run” concept where I ripped samples from magazine cover CD’s and Remix Packs made publicly available online. I then used destructive effects and processes that worked on each sample until it was unrecognisable compared to its starting point. This often involved rendering audio after it had been washed in effects and chopping out the segments or one shots that I liked, then repeating the process until I was satisfied with each finished sound.

> 02. What tips and advice can you share to any producers on shaping their own sound?
I’m by no means an established producer and I think any advice I give should be taken with a pinch of salt, as I work with limited resources and quite often my production techniques are a thorough, but at times long winded and time consuming. The best advice I would give is play your music to people who you trust to be honest. It’s nice to get compliments and be told something is good, but negative feedback from impartial third parties can sometimes be the most useful. Even if it’s just food for thought and after thinking you like the original sound, but it never hurts to question your ideas and listen to others.

> 03. What is your go to track at the moment by another artist?
I listen to a wide variety of music but one of my go to artists is Suade who most people will recognise from his collaboration with Magda. They made a track called “Fixation” which came out on her Items & Things label she runs with Marc Houle and Troy Pierce. Suade is a modest man and a genuine Dr. of Techno after completing a doctorate degree in music with a thesis that specialised in Techno. Suade spent a lot of time helping me develop my sound and production ideas when I first started making music and I owe him a lot for the help he has so selflessly given.

Other more recognisable artists would include Audio Injection / Truncate as he has a dark and dancefloor focused sound, which is produced with razor sharp precision and a thick richness. He has the skill of making a little sound a lot with many of his tracks consisting of just a few well produced sounds. My tracks aren’t usually as stripped back or precise as his, but that’s why I look up to him and hope on day to equal his production skills. Audio Injection did an early remix for our DEAD CERT. Records and it was an honour to have him feature on the label.

• NEWS • DEAD CERT. Records

DEAD CERT. Records

I’d like to officially announce that DEAD CERT. Records will be launching in the coming months.

It’s been a long wait for many involved since April 2012, but these things take time and a whole lot of work to put together. We wanted to make sure things are at their best for us and everyone else before moving forward and we would like to thank those for their patience and belief in our vision.

We are nearly finished mastering the remixes for the first few releases, so from now there should be a pretty quick turn around before the first release details and promos start to trickle out to our friends. You can expect to see remixes appearing by quality artists and friends like Audio Injection, Heron, Miss Sunshine and Hans Bouffmyhre.

As you may know, we like variations of techno and minimal, as is showcased through Death Techno and this will be reflected in the music that appears on DEAD CERT.

“Welcome to DEAD CERT.

We enjoy a deep/dark sound that excites and instills passion in the listener like none other. “Quality over quantity” is our mantra, releasing a variety of minimal and techno whilst discovering and nurturing new artists that we believe in.

Keeping an open mind at all times, we look for everything from style and originality to how a track would sound in a club for that extra dimension through years of experience.

Mastered by a high profile engineer who has worked with Magda on her album for Minus and Items & Things, amongst others.

From the Creator of Death Techno and the Owner of 22 Digit Records.”
