Argy is surely an important and remarkable name on the scene, the German dj/producer is rocking the scene since many years. We get in touch with him, for a fast interview with some interesting forthcoming topics in his career. Check it!
Hi Argy and welcome to Different Grooves. Staying on your djing side, currently you are resident dj at Tribal Sessions Sankeys and Space Ibiza, with great success: tell us some insider regarding the two residencies?
This year at Sankeys tribal sessions we introduced a cutting edge underground lineup with names such as DVS1, Levon Vincent, Robert Hood, Boddika, Scuba, and so many more. It was a challenge re-building the night and concept from scratch but it looks like we have finally managed to crate a very loyal and beautiful international crowd. For Vagabundos i am doing my big room thing with Luciano playing at this institution for the island called Space, which is a more colourful and light-hearted affair!
Moving now with a couple of question on your producing side: you are ready to release an EP on Bedrock, how the cooperation with this historical imprint beings?
I always wanted to release something on Bedrock but i never really design something specifically for a label. In this case the tracks came naturally and found organically their home. Also Digweed has been a great supporter of my music so that made it easier! I am also going to remix one of his track which is of course a compliment for me but also quite a bit of pressure!
Staying on the studio side, there’s an important side project called Argy & Mama that is going to be massively released with important remixes: reveal it to us and our readers, please!
The first remix package with Hot Since 82 and Kele from the band Bloc Party was a huge success. The second package which is going to be released in early October features remixes by Alan Fitzpatrick who is on fire lately, Rampa from Keine Musik, Mike Starr and a vinyl only remix which i have to keep as a surprise:)
Tell us some of your summer highlights!
Playing an all-night set of 7 hours at Space’s terrace was a beautiful experience that allowed me to express myself differently and within a different context. I am very much looking forward playing the Zurich street parade this summer alongside amazing names and i must say that i had one of the best Greek shows this year as the people are now thirsty for escapism and i can’t blame them really.
Generic question: Argy thoughts about German clubbing scene?
To be honest, the German club scene is still pure compared to the other countries and i love the Germans for that. It’s still low key, naive, pure and innocent in most cities when it comes to underground dance music. I like the fact that Germans don’t get over-excited about things and rush to capitalise aggressively on opportunities in music.
Thank you very much, it was a pleasure spend time with you!
