Proxy interview and mix
I spoke to Proxy about his new mix.
DB: Proxy hello: where do you hail from?
P: I’m based in my city like 80km inland from Moscow in Russia. A town called Orekhovo-Zuyevo.
This is where my studio is. I spend most of my time here. It’s where the magic happens they say!
DB: This mix is big: can you give us background of the mix? What are some tunes to discuss?
P: The mix is just some things I’m digging right now. When I play out I play live so now and again its good to do a mix of things that I am liking musically. I don’t do that many mixes.
My new track ‘IRON’ is on there that is coming out on Turbo soon. In the mix are cool tracks from people I respect like Congorock, Riton, Spank Rock and others. Marseille is signed to my label Mako Records… so good to play his tune in the mix.
DB: What would you say is the unifying thing behind it, what is the singular inspiration?
P: POWER. Most of my music is about a big industrial sound. I like the kind of heavy music that these guys write. It shows a kind of strength if that makes sense. I like music that evokes a reaction.
DB: What live work have you done and continue to do?
P: I’ve just played live with Feed Me in London. I’m doing some cool festivals this summer across Germany And Russia. I have a USA tour in August and then back to Europe then Australia.
I do my own thing. I’m just building my live set bigger now.
