We talked with Producer Sebastián Rivero from Caracas (North Venezuela). A few months ago Sebastián released “Lazers and Animals” on Stab Recordings. So we tought it was time for an exclusive Interview with Sebastián Rivero.
How have you developed your career?
Long story short, around age 13 it all started. I enjoyed making electronic music and step by step I was evolving to where my music is today.
Around my 17th birthday my first release was released on a label. My first event as Deejay started right away. Since then I have not stopped producing and playing music on random events.
Who are your biggest influences?
My influences range from artists like: Black Coffee, Hyenna, Pablo Fierro. Also from my home-country I love Band & dos, Manybeat, Tony Guerra, just to name a few.
Any favourite record labels?
Keinemusik, Crosstown Records and Innervision.
Can you tell us more about how you make music?
I have a ritual before starting with producing music, a nice cup of coffee and around 2AM it’s my magical hour to produce music, for instance.
Before starting, I always listen to a few inspiring songs because it inspires me a lot. Above all, it keeps the ideas fresh. I usually record percussion and live sounds to have many different things. This keeps my sounds interesting.
What song are you most proud of and why?
The track is called Barlovento and it is one of the songs that I have worked on the most and that I liked the most. My release on Stab Recordings is also a very good tune that I love!
Name a location where you would like to act and why?
At Printworks located in London, For me personally it would be one of the most amazing places to play in the world!
What can we expect in the future?
This year there is a lot of music and forthcoming audiovisual material, live sessions as well and I will release a cool album!
Favorite drink and studio equipment?
Cuba Libre coctail and the Jupiter-8 synthesizer by Roland for instance are my favorites!
