The Arch interview wAFF

We interview wAFF ahead of his gig at The Arch this weekend…

Can you tell us about your first contact with music – what kind of music you were brought up on and which artists really influenced your style?

wAFF: Well I used to be into all sorts, I used to love Bonkers and Happy Harcore when I was younger ha, I loved it. Even Gabba which is basically proper fast hard house with some crap white guy rapping a load of shite over the top of the tunes, but it was MINT!!! Loved it. But then I really got into Indie music for years, loved it and still do but that was all I used to listen to, but I used to be a trained dancer so I then got into Hip hop & R&B. The artists that influenced me had to be Luciano – Loco Dice – Tania Vulcano & Marco Carola. They are a huge impact on how my style and music taste is

And then how did that move to the place you are now – in the world of electronic music?

wAFF: I used to love listening to minimal when it first came about, Stephan Bodzin, Oliver Huntemann, Booka Shade, Minilogue, Audion, Troy Peirce and all the stuff Luciano used to play in like 2004-2005 to name a few. And then its just went on from there, going to Ibiza massively moved me through the sounds and I just fell in love with the different genres of dance music!

Whose idea was it for you two to share production duties and collaborate [with Cuartero]? How did it all come about?

wAFF: You know what I actually don’t remember, maybe I asked Cuartero… but I can’t remember. It was in ibiza when we said to do it so we just sent a track each back and forward to each other and worked on it a bit at a time till we had what we wanted. We have another BIG track we made the same time as Break a Sweat called How We Roll which is a BOMB! It’s a massive track just nobody has picked it up yet. We’re on the look out again now for a home for it! I also have my solo EP coming out on Hot Creations on April 8th.

The current music scene is always a hot topic for discussion. The Prodigy recently made a comment about there being too much nostalgia, with people referencing a lot of ’90s or ’80s music when producing. Should people try to move forward and venture into the newness. What are your thoughts?

wAFF: Yeah I really like futuristic sounding music, not like spacey trance or anything but new unique styles and sounds that capture its own vibe. Ive never been into the retro sound with 80’ stabs n shit…nah not bothered. Its cool when its done right but I’m not into it at all. House will always be house and will always bring back old sounds through the whole existence of house, but I much prefer to keep the grooves but add something new and exciting to it.

Dirty basslines, heavy grooves and powerful vocals are your trademark tunes. Will you be diversifying with other genres of house music this year or in the near future?

wAFF: Ive got so much different styles of music ready to come out this year and onwards. I produce a lot of techno but I might do an alias for this as its completely different and really hard and fast ha so it might not work so well for wAFF – but we’ll see. But yeah theres quite a lot of music you will hear from me this year that’s different.

You both transmit pure energy with your mixes, but can you describe what makes you a winning formula?

wAFF: I couldn’t say, but I guess I just have my own style and of how I play. I like to make my sets big and full of energy and for me its important to play interesting creative tracks that have something that can really lock you into the groove! I dunno its a hard question for me to answer but you’ll bloody get your moneys worth ha!

Do you get influenced by the gigs you play when in the studio?

wAFF: No I actually don’t, well not often at all. I find it hard a lot of the time to be inspired. I find the whole experience amazing and overwhelming with the travel and timing and intensitiy of being in a club constantly, being around endless amounts of people and loud music etc… I’m usually exhausted by the end of the weekend so I just like to proper chill when I’m at home. I don’t have a studio I just use headphones and my mac thats it! So I just make music as and when I feel and not force myself, which I should do more often, as sometimes I’m lazy and just play computer games or some shit ha! But I get tons of inspiration when I go listen to other DJs and take some time out to do this. At the moment, Jamie Jones, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Joseph Capriati, Marcel Fengler & Marco Carola have been my favourites to go listen to. I get exactly what I need from any of these every time I listen to them.

What can we expect to hear from you as a team in the coming months?

wAFF: Well we’re gonna try make some more music together and get, like I said, the other track we have signed to something big… and yeah see what happens from there! But definitely expect some more 😉

If all that was caused by bad financial planning or inability to adjust to life after the game, well. it would be sad, but they had their day in the sun. But the problems players face go way beyond readjusting to “normal” life. Two out of three players in the NFLPA’s survey said they left football with some form of permanent injury. And with today’s players bigger and faster than ever before, sometimes a constant ache is the least of an ex player’s worries. Six of every 10 players suffer a concussion; more than a quarter suffer more than one. Such may lead to dementia, mental illness and cheap jerseys early Alzheimer’s disease. These players are not only left physically debilitated the resulting medical bills can crush them financially as well. You could fill a Hall of Fame with”For example, they have these huge GMCs. They like to park their cars in front of girls’ high schools, women’s universities,” Aaida told us. “And they have a microphone, and they’ll tell every woman who passes by to cover up. If they see a woman standing outside for a relatively long time, they’d ask her, ‘What are you doing? Why are you standing here?’””Well, cover up regardless.”Show them how to catch properly. Show them how to throw properly. But make it a game within a game. See how many they can catch out of ten. See how many they can hit out of ten, that sort of thing to make it fun. And when you’ve reached a point where your expertise can no longer teach them at the level that they’re playing, then seek out a trained professional. The Chiefs beat the Colts, 30 14, last Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Kansas City forced two Colt turnovers in the game (including one INT), while recording zero giveaways on the offensive side. The Chiefs lead the league with 11 interceptions cheap nfl jerseys on the season, and their +9 turnover differential is second best behind the Vikings (+11). Kansas City is 4 0 when winning the turnover battle this season.RAZ: For a moment, if we can forget about his physical abilities or his stats and just look at him as a leader. I mean, this is a kid who was used to winning his cheap nfl jerseys whole life. Right? He won in high school. He won in college. Is there something to that? I mean, are we not fully sort of considering the psychological part of why he’s doing so well?Paul Konerko (277) After starting out as a young phenom with the Dodgers, Konerko went to the Reds briefly and then landed in Chicago in 1999. He must be doing something right, because he is still there as of 2008 and ranks second in White Sox history with 277 home runs. Konerko hit a career high 41 homers in 2004 but his best season overall might have been 2006, when he batted .313 with 35 homers and 113 runs batted in.

If after the season he becomes a free agent, will teams go after him if he plays well now? I’ll bet they would. Nothing makes you less of a pariah than winning.. So it’s figured an 80 year old person with ALS will just have fewer years to live. A younger person will need the money more. 3. PrivacyA third consideration for many celebrities is the ability to attend school privately, free of the press and paparazzi. It is all very well to say to players that they have got to be honest about their health.
