Next up for number #034 in our size? sessions Mix series, we have Manchester’s own prolific DJ and producer @KreatureOfficial taking over.
Keep on reading to get to know the house music connoisseur a little bit better…
Tell us about yourself; where you’re from, what you do and what’s your shoe size?
“Easy! My names Ash – AKA Kreature – I’m a music producer, DJ, Engineer and teacher from Manchester, UK.”
How did you get started in the music industry?
“Its been a very long road for me, to be honest. It seems my life has been fully encompassed by music, I played instruments at a young age at school then went down the path of electronic music by picking up some decks when I was about 13” I grabbed a load of jungle and DnB vinyl from Eastern Bloc in Manchester and after that, I couldn’t think of doing anything else.”
How would you describe your music style?
“As Kreature, I play mainly house music – towards the minimal/deep tech direction with a hint garage.”
What has been your record of the year so far and what are you looking forward to hearing for the rest of the year?
“Wow, that’s a big one. I can’t place one record, to be honest, but my favourite artists right now are DJOKO, Sweely, Fabe, LondonGround, Luuk Van Dijk…there’s so many,”
“I’m looking forward to next year, can we just right 2020 off? Hopefully everything gets back to normal and we can rave again.”
Have you been making much music recently and can we expect some releases soon?
“I’ve been constantly making music through 2020 and releases are looking good for the new year. I’m releasing music with the Italian imprint MOAN, Deeperfect, Ibiza’s DoNotSleep and a cool new project from NYC called REVIVAL.”
Has there been a particular event/party that has stood out for your career?
“There’s a few but for me playing the sundown set at music Savage’s Camp on the playa at Burning Man has to top them, or playing the Warung tour in Brazil.”
And looking further ahead, who should we be looking out for in 2021?
“ME! Haha, nah see above. Also, I think my partner in crime Jamie Roy will be taking over next year.”
On Friday you’re broadcasting an exclusive size? sessions Mix for us. What can we expect to hear?
“I’ve decided to think a little outside of the box on this one. I’ve just been loaned some new gear by Pioneer, including the new 6 channel v10 mixer, this thing is on a different level, so I’ve hooked up a few toys to it. I’ll be adding some live drums and synths to some of my favourite tracks at the minute and getting a little bit more experimental than just mixing 2 tracks.”
Outside of the music industry, where do you look for inspiration?
“I think as cliche as it sounds, life as a whole provides all the inspiration I need. I’m a big movie fan, especially anything sci-fi. I also love to read anything about science and the universe we live in, other than that just surrounding myself with like-minded people and having a good craic.”
What are your top 3 records of all time?
“Changes everyday….. sorry impossible question!”
