Stefano Noferini is coming to India this weekend and we managed to catch with him with help from Submerge! Here are his thoughts on his upcoming tour, expectations from our country and future of underground music!
1. What are you expecting from your fans in India ?
There’s a lot of expectation about my dj sets, so I think I’ll have a warm welcome. I see it from the quantity of posts and feeback on Twitter and Facebook.
I think the techno and tech house scene is full of new talents. DJs as Paco Maroto, Alvaro AM, Miguel Bastida, Tacos Man, Daniele Selfmade, Collective Machine, George Privatti and Matt Sassari, who releases on my label, Deeperfect, are simply fantastic
I think that the techno sound is going to spread in two: classic / old school techno will be harder with high BPM. The new techno instead is getting more minimal, closer to tech house and deep. I think that’s the sound of the future.
I don’t follow this kind of music, I preferred the trance scene of some years ago.
I don’t think that in the recent past charts and ranking were the only thing that counted. For instance, every ranking, every nation and every magazine has a different n. 1, so there’s not one only number one. About Beatport, it is really important for the recording industry, but it is not the only thing that counts for the career of a dj. So many underground DJs travel all around the world with their music as I do and they are not in the charts every day.
I don’t know it so much, I hope that the crowd will enjoy my tech / tech house set.
I do so many collaborations, all of the them based on the quality of the music we produce. I recently collaborated with a superstar as Mark Knight, but at the moment I’m working with 2 young DJs who are not famous at all. Quality for me is all the counts.
I still love the sound of the original version “Flash”, that was released in 2012. And I often play the Ron Costa remix of “Vegas”. The track came out about one year ago on Deeperfect, my label.
I listen to so much music, every single day. At the moment, I keep on listening to old vinyls that I produced so many years ago, searching for ideas, samples or something like that…
