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

DEADCERTBLACK001DEADCERTBLACK001



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 • We are 4!

DT We are 4

4 years have most definitely flown by, but they do say we must be having fun and it’s absolutely true. Here is a breakdown of happenings and the things to look forward to…

Promoting established artists we are digging and DJ talent has always been the focus for us, showcasing great music. We continue to receive messages of support from fans around the world, even one person saying “Don’t change!” This is the key I find, keeping the same template and letting the music speak for itself, allowing the right people to find us.

Proving this theory, we were recently contacted by producer and friend Andreas-Tek who curates a brand new channel on the world renowned net radio site Digitally Imported (or simply di.fm) called Underground Techno. You can catch our repeat shows being scheduled bi-weekly Saturday’s around 4:30-6:00pm GMT.

The premiere broadcast of each mix can always be heard online bi-weekly via soe.fm Radio in Germany.

– This official site has over 39,000 views since launching in November 2010

SoundCloud is now over 3,631 Followers
Facebook Page has 2,751 Likes
Twitter has 525 Followers
Mixcloud has 607 Followers

To help celebrate our 4th birthday, there are 2 mixes lined up, a 2hr 22mins Exclusive LIVE recording from Marcus Reichel in Brandenburg, Germany. In the next couple of weeks will be my annual Special Mix Series set featuring artists that have previously been guests or to appear in the future on Death Techno, to show appreciation for their work and taking part in this project.

Our schedule is rammed as usual… over the coming months we have Exclusive sets to feature from Israel Toledo, ALHEK, Bruno Ledesma, XHEI, Lex Gorrie, Eomac and Affin label boss Joachim Spieth just to scratch the surface…

DEAD CERT. Records

Our label DEAD CERT. Records that began releasing in July 2013 has the 7th instalment due March 13 from the fantastic Energun. Plenty of music is in the pipeline from more great artists that are to be revealed with some even more special news to announce later in the year… Below you can listen to some previews and check out our links…

Thanks for all the continued support!

Cheers,

Jack! Who? B-)

From now on the birthday mixes will feature either past or future guests of the series, to show appreciation from myself and to re-introduce some artists that some may have missed.

I went for a super smooth, climbing set from start to finish with some real brutality and power towards the end. There is some unorthodox mixing that creates character and the element of surprise that I think works a treat. Hope you enjoy it! Many Thanks! – Jack! Who?
