“Guys this is pure gold” – new Techno EP by Mokabi on Klinik Room
Duo Mokabi released a new EP on Klinik Room. We talked with the guys about his Techno tracks “Venturi” and “Gimbaled”.
trndmsk: What inspired you to produce the EP?
Mokabi: Regarding the track “Gimbaled” I was inspired by the sound of a Spanish acoustic guitar. The synthesizer that you hear during the break and also the melody are supposed to give you a melancholic feeling, before the drop releases you into a warm and danceable loop. We wanted to create a track which is highly melodic but also keeps the crowd moving. “Venturi” is way more forward. We produced the track during spring, so we were inspired by the power of that beautiful season I guess.
Where did you record it? And how?
The raw idea was created in our home studios in Stuttgart and Cologne. The analog gear we used in the track was recorded and processed with an UA Audio Interface. We had the chance to make the final mixdown in a professional studio which is also based in Cologne.
How did you get in contact with the record label?
We had our first release on Klinik Room in 2017. Since this is our third release now we know the Klinik Room guys very well. The guys are awesome and they are doing a pretty good job. Silvio the label manager was a bit hyped when we sent him the demo. He only wrote back: “guys this is pure gold”.
What’s up next after the release? Are you working on any other projects?
Yes we are working on two different EP’s right now. One of them will be a vintage style Downtempo EP. The other one will be a tribal influence to melodic techno EP. We will also focus on DJing and life performances.
