Après une poignée de maxis et un CD-R sur Stuporsonika,
son propre label, et quelques contributions à des compilations,
Daniel Söderberg sort un premier album sur Tigerbeat6, le label
de Kid 606, qu'il décrit comme un exercice schizophrénique
aux croisées de la techno minimale de Kompakt, l'abstraction
digitale de Mego et la hargne électrique de Touch & Go.
Don't Want To Know You procède à une fine digestion
des influences du jeune suédois et les agence en un premier
album certes référencé mais très inspiré,
laissant présager d'un avenir forcément radieux.
were you first attracted to music ?
remember, have always been.
you have any musical training ? Can you play instruments? Did you
play in (punk) groups ?
I have no formal training, have been playing guitar since i
was thirteen, electronics soon after that. I play in punk bands
right now, actually. Well, maybe not literary punk, but rock with
lots of noise. I also use a lot of guitar on the Dwayne Sodahberk
Is there/ Do
you see an electronic musical scene in Sweden ? Are you part of
Maybe there is a scene with minimal techno.. I don't feel part
of it though, I think I'm too interested in noise and bombastic
music is not exclusively electronic, i mean you seem to be very
influenced by musical pop forms, are you ?
Yes, I listen a lot to for example guitar music, loud rock like
Shellac, Bardo Pond, Slint; quieter stuff like Julie Doiron and
Bedhead etc; and there's lots of good music from the 60's. And the
would you define Stuporsonika ? How would you introduce Studio Stuporsonika,
is it your day-work ? And what about Average ? Who are your colleagues
in these different (sub) labels ? What is the concept of Ritkiga
Instrument series ?
Stuporsonika is just a simple label where
we release things we feel like releasing. It started out very minimalistic,
now it's more ...loose? and Studio Stuporsonika is what I do for
a living -making music for commercials, web, film etc. Average is
a label that's just as loose as Stuporsonika, a group of friends.
I'm not so involved businesswise, I just make some music for it.
Sven Andersson is one of the Average guys, he recently made an album
for the british label Longhaul. Riktiga Instrument Series is a way
to release any stupid ideas we might have. And it cost nothing and
is fast released since it's
on CD-R. That's what we've been doing this year since we had no
money for vinyl...
Car Race/Formule 1 a passion you share with some of your label colleagues
? Have you found interconnection between this and music ?
he, yeah, Johan (aka E.Pr. aka Janosh Brando) and I do like sportscars.
We went to Le Mans 24 Hours this summer. If there's a musical connection
it has to be the massive sound of the 600 horsepowers from a sportscar
prototype. It's quite unbelievable. And when there's 50 of them
at the same time it's like a Merzbow concert.
did you happen to release stuffs on Swayzak ?
Some guys from Average gave them a compilation at a festival
and they liked a Dwayne-track and used it on their first 240 Volts
music covers a really wide scope of styles ... from Mego to Kompakt
(do you agree?). What will your new album sound like ?
It will be quite schizophrenic, from Mego to Kompakt as you
suggest. Via Touch&Go...
How did you happen
to release an album on Tigerbeat 6 ?
Kid 606 played in Stockholm in the spring of 2000, I gave him
a CD-R. After six months he sent an email and said he liked it.
To make a short story shorter...
How do you build tracks ? Does the mix of analogue and digital sounds
plays a great part in the Dwayne's touch ?
It's an unorganized process with lots of random factors involved.
I use computers, modular synthesizers, guitars, homebuilt things
etc, whatever I feel necessary.
other plans of releases after the album on T6 ?
I'm working on a new EP for Tigerbeat6.
And I've made a remix for Numbers from California. And there should
be something out on Stuporsonika before 2002 is over. Not by me
but Ralph Lundsten and maybe Janosh Brando. I'm doing some other
things too, but more about that later...
