Q & A with Rubsilent

Describe yourself

I first discovered house music back in early 90′s, was highly inspired by House sound of NYC and Chicago back then. Started collecting records in mid 90′s. Didn’t take too long for me to get involve with the house and deep techno sound of Detroit. Moved to the other side of Atlantic in the very first days of 2000 and lived in Chicago land for about 7 yrs. While I was continuing on college education as well as DJing at countless local spots and rave parties in Mid-West, collecting vinyls was another passion of mine. In 2007 moved back to my homeland and currently living in Istanbul.

How would you describe the sound in the mix ?

As I enjoy blending different genres in my mixes, started this one with late night deepness, after the introduction part switched the mood with more floor oriented house and technoish tunes. It’s a roller coaster ride with timeless classics as well as brand new tunes. So should I say, house mix with an unexpected punch of techno for this ?

You’ve been recording a mix called "Future Funk". What exactly is future funk and what does that mean for you ?

We all know the history of electronic music, how the pioneers were influenced by jazz, funk and soul. As the time changes music changes as well, I keep up with the current change on music with being true to the roots of house and techno. On top of this approach, blending different genres to come up with such colorful musical journey that would move your body as well as your soul, instead of being a prisoner of only one style by playing it on the safe side would be what "Future Funk" is all about.

What’s your current top 10 ?
