Q&A with German music producer DJ Emerson

German music producer and imprint owner DJ Emerson continues to share his love for techno music and its diverse array of sub-genres. Releasing 17 track album Repetitive Music 2 via  Micro.Fon, the producer continues to craft a bold yet refined identity in the technosphere. The album incorporates dub techno, funk elements and also fuses more hardcore techno sequences into one dynamic techno EP that pays homage to the Detroit Techno and Berlin scene in our opinion with DJ Emerson’s groove-laden production. We asked DJ Emerson about his musical trajectory and live performances below.

For anyone that hasn’t heard it yet, how would you describe your sound?

Repetitive, heavy techno music with groove and soul.

At what point in your life did you have that moment where you said to yourself “This is it. This is the type of music I want to create?”

Usually during performances at clubs in front of a frenetic crowd, but usually I am so deep in the zone that I don’t think at all. Only afterwards when I think about it I recognize that this was it- repetitive techno music and also some chopped up vocals

What piece of gear could you never live without?

My 909.

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?

Definitely interacting with a live audience.

Favourite BPM?

At the moment it would be 138 bpm.

All-time favourite album?

The Chemical Brothers – Exit Planet Dust.

What have you got in the pipeline for the near future?

Some release re-issues and a full-on restart with

‘A.C.A.B.’ features on TECHNO_GROUND
