CDR Preamble: Kay Suzuki Q+A

1. So, you’re spinning a works and inspirations selection at CDR. What can we expect to hear? a little insight please!

Some remixes I’m working on, quite few beats ideas, versions of my album tracks and lot of re-edits!

2. How has attending CDR sessions shaped your journey as a producer?

CDR has set my creative path as a producer.

Back in Japan, I wanted to be a singer with skills(didn’t give up tho). I had my own band, collecting and playing out records here and there, making beats and all that jazz…. But I didn’t know what I am about at that time. To make long story short, I ended up moved to London without knowing anyone, but then about a year later or so I discovered CDR flyer. From that time, I met numbers of really unique producers, musicians and singers, and literally formed my style through those collaborations. Hearing those unique expressions of beats and frequencies in that environment always excite me and motivate me to be more creative and free as much as I can. CDR is one of my main creative resources and home for real music lovers. I also stole lot of little tricks from Daisuke Tanabe too!

3. Who has been on heavy rotation on your audio player of late?

Bumble Bee Unlimited
