4 Cities – London, UK
Mariano and I talk just after 4 CiTieS have done their first three live shows in December and he is experiencing first-hand the crippling effects of too much computer use.

NeuroKontrol – Marseille, France
Six Foot Three caught up with Niko aka NeuroKontrol, a French Tribecore music producer currently living in Spain. For the last five years Niko has been building an online music empire AstroFoniK with his mate Wakefields. We discuss the challenges of running a business in vinyl when everyone’s listening to MP3′s and why the web shop is such a crucial tool in keeping the dream alive. After ten years in the game the distinction between work, music, parties and performing seems to have molded into one magic lifestyle. Its an inspiring way to live; producing, touring, collaborating, running an online music shop, but it doesn’t come without its fair share of good old hard work.

DJ KIVA – Brooklyn, NYC
“I feel when you’re doing creative work, its necessary to have different identities, aliases, monikers to express different aspects of your personality. Because the human condition is so wide ranging I don’t feel the same way every day, so I might do some banged out Dubstep beat one day, and the next day I might write a healing ambient piece of music that has no rhythm and no intention of being played on the radio, and the next day I might write some free jazz or something. It’s still all me, but if I were to put all of these works out under the one name, it might be confusing for the audience, so by developing different aliases it frees you up as a producer to just create without worrying about losing fans.”

Kurtz – Teramo, Italy
Kurtz has managed amazingly well to balance his passion for music with other more socially responsible tasks, like supporting his loving wife, being a father to a beautiful newborn baby girl, and working full time in the IT industry to pay the bills. It’s the kind of balance that allows him to have the best of both worlds and his radical passion for music keeps him super productive despite his other commitments.
“Sure ordinary work subtracts time for music, but from another point of view, it gives me the privilege to play and produce the music I like, to buy the expensive gear to make music seriously and to follow other passions in my life like traveling, reading books, watching movies and buying lots of vinyl!”

King Felix – L.A. California

If you’re a fan of Philip K Dick then you might get an idea of the type of music that King Felix produce and play live. Turns out our man Dick was quite the interesting character, drawing upon his life of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and transcendental experiences, and creating novels like Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? It was an inspirational quote from Dick’s book VALIS though that bought King Felix to life eighteen months ago.
Real time ceased in 70 c.e. with the fall of the temple at Jerusalem. It began again in 1974 c.e.
The intervening period was a perfect spurious interpolation aping the creation of the Mind.
“The Empire never ended,” but in 1974 a cypher was sent out as a signal that the Age of Iron was over; the cypher consisted of two words:
KING FELIX – which refers to the Happy King……
