Eduardo De La Calle

How did you start?

I start dancing on the  late 80,s during a high period when Madrid was a place full of opportunities in terms of electronic music ,groups like Crash Course in Science from Philadelphia or Neon Judgement blowed my mind.

Where are you based?

I am living in Almeria ,southern Spain on the country side. I daily share my life with a small spiritual community where we pratique bhakti yoga, really hard yoga style from India ancestors…but I like it ,I guess difficult challenges are my cup of tea. Really nice, I really recommend any kind of yoga.

Please give an example of your music writing process?

There are many ways to start a track. I do not follow any formulas , so its always a bit unexpected , that’s why I love it.. It’s also depending on many factors, my feelings, mood and so on.

What are you working on right now?

I am just finishing some remixes for dj Hell,s new album and another remix for Tiga, I am also concentrate now on some new Eps for different labels from Paris and Barcelona.

What is your gear setup?

I have Protools as a main brain sequencer , then I have 2 units from the brand  AKAI, the model  MPC 5000, and some synths that I sampler every day , I like to use aswell  old jazz records or funk ones to sampler them , all can be good or  usefull to do it right !

What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?

All we do in life affect directly to our behaviours , I guess in my particular case all the spiritual process I try to follow transfer  me a constant bunch of new ideas and data , so later on I can transfer that  in  to my music. other people follow other theories and I recomend every one just to follow what you think its good for you, but I do definitely think that its only your  soul that can reach out and follow your desires , so them the universe will bring you what you deserve.

How would you describe your music genre?

Techno with a bit of jazz ?, house with a bit of funk ?,sci fi tech with a bit of a mellow down tempo ? a bit of all together ? no boundaries I guess it’s the best.

Do you know any music theory?

I was studying music on the conservatory for only 1 year when I was 12 years old, but the situation that teach me alot was  I guess  being  working on record stores many years.

What are your plans for the future?

Music its always related with  my life but my real future plan is to achieve  a good level of conciusness through yoga discipline. I think human life is a good opportunity to achive spiritual goals ,and  the schooll of life could be perfect for this purpose because  I think we are light beings. I think human life has been made not to make money or get fame or spend the entire life doing nothing or just working on a company  ,, I mean some times its good for those who look for that ,but we can get better goals if we focus in other higher stuff in terms of develop our souls.

 What are you listening to at the moment?

Jazz, and more Jazz, Alice Coltrane, Chet Baker, Miles Davis. Always also Indu Mantras. Sri Krisna, Shiva ones, Brahma ones, my mind need them 🙂

Who are your top 5 influences and icons?

Better 6 please. Miles Davis , luke slater , Jeff Mills , Carl Craig , Sun Ra, Kenny Larkin

When are you playing next?

For instance. Barcelona, Berghaim Berlin , Buenos Aires.
