DubDiggerz are a dub-heavy duo from Slovenia who have built a reputation for dark, bassy beats that recall the type of sounds heard in cramped nightclubs in South London a decade ago. We chatted to them about the emotions of making music, the perfect nightclub and, of course, their desert island disks.
How would you describe the music that you make in one sentence?
Dark and diverse.
What are your three biggest non-musical influences?
NikolaTesla, Buddha, Pulp Fiction.
You can take five records with you on a desert island. Which ones?
– Dave Brubeck – Take Five
– King Tubby Meets Roots Radics – Dangerous Dub
– SexPistols – Never Mind The Bollocks Here’s The Sex Pistols
– Fat Freddy’s Drop – Cay’s Crays Dub Remixes
– Kraftwerk – Kraftwerk
If you had to lose one of your senses, which one would it be and why?
Taste, but not in music. Because you can still see, hear and smell.
What makes a perfect music venue/nightclub?
Sound system and the vibez.
What’s the best piece of music that you’ve ever made (that we can link to on SC or FB!)?
We think you should decide!
(Praguebeats: OK :))
If you could only say one word for the rest of your life, in any language, what would it be and what does it mean?
Neispan – it means the feeling in your body after all night studio session.
What advice would you give your ten-year-old self (musical or not)?
Don’t give up and never stop experimenting.
What is the strongest emotion for making music?
Lust for Sub 40hz meditation.
If you were interviewing yourself, what other question would you ask (and what’s the answer?)?
Question and the answer is schizophrenia.
What is your local underground music scene like? What three artists do we need to check out?
Big thanks to Mark and Daniel of DubDiggerz for taking the time to talk to us. Check them out on Soundcloud, Facebook and Myspace. They’re also starting their own night in their hometown of Ljubljana called DeepEnd! (Chapter I. is on 9th July headlined by Gantz). And, if you’re in Amsterdam, you can catch them playing tomorrow night (June 26th) alongside Joe Nice and RSD at Outlook Festival’s Amsterdam launch party.
