CDR Preamble: 4di

See/hearing 4di’s sonic developments over the two years of CDR Berlin’s growth has been great, so it was only a matter of time before we invited him to feature as a guest. Adding to our recent My First CDR… feature  with the multi-skilled producer, we shared a brief Q+A related to this Thursday’s proceedings. 

What do CDR audiences at Prince Charles have in store for them when you represent in Berlin for our Summerjam on August 8th?

I can’t tell exactly. I did not play music in front of an audience yet, especially not in a club with a big soundsystem. So it’s going to be a premier for me…

What I can already predict is a relatively wide range on tempos and genres in the set. I’m about to figure out to melt all that together…

Is there a song that is shaping up as your track of Summer 2013?

Sorry, I’m absolutely not informed with actual releases at the moment….

Who/What has been on heavy rotation on your audio player of late?

I rediscovered ‘Golden Brown’ by The Stranglers for me. Didn’t recognize what a great song this is before. Further do listen to a lot of r’n’b at the moment. I just found this artist called IAMNOBODI. I also want to mention Omar’s new single ‘The Man’ and Peven Everetts’ Easy Livin LP…

Please talk us through the track you last [cmd] ‘S’d ? ([ctrl] ‘S’ to PC users) [in other words, last project you saved]

The last thing I made is the tune ‘Software’. I peeled it out of an already finished project. The groove was originally just a transitory element. I took it and based a new song on it (somehow coincidentally).
