Concave - MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire #117


MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire #117

It’s been a while since we had a Belgian artist in the MakeItGood x FatKidOnFire series; off the top of my head the last one was ARtroniks back in January!

We figured it was about time we supported the sounds coming out Belgium, so we recently caught up with Belgian DJ Concave to talk dubstep, labels and everything in between…

Who is Concave?
I’m an 18 year old DJ currently living in Turnhout, Belgium.

What got you into mixing dubstep? How would you describe your mixing style? I first got into mixing dubstep because one of my mates would spin at the local venue from time to time, this got me stoked to try it out aswell. So I bought myself a pair of decks after trying it out on a midi controller a few times and the rest is history.

When I’m mixing I tend to start of with a few ‘lighter’ tunes before I get into the deeper, darker stuff. I also try to let the tunes blend in nicely so you won’t get that ‘cut-off’ effect, and yeah – double drops all day.

How long have you been DJing?
I’ve been DJing for about 3 years now.

Turntables or CDJs for when you play out? I prefer turntables, but as a lot of venues don’t offer any or the ones they do have are broken I mostly mix using CDJs.

What’s been your best gig and if you could DJ alongside anyone, who would it be? Best one so far must have been the one in my hometown in April, Catacombs & Knowledge flew in from Manchester and stayed over at my place for two days. And than the show itself was on a boat with a proper soundsystem so the place was vibing hard.

If I could DJ alongside anyone it would definitely be Biome, the amount of dubs he has and his mixing style are just out of this world.

Who are your top 5 dubstep producers at the moment; and why? Any labels you’re feeling?

  1. Biome – He’s a machine when it comes to building tunes.
  2. Kaiju – They really bring a fresh and different sound, their sub work is just amazing.
  3. Catacombs & Knowledge – They compliment each other’s productions perfectly.
  4. VIVEK – Well ‘Asteroids‘ is pretty self-explanatory.
  5. Burial – His productions are so different from everyone elses, but still exactly what I need on those cold winter nights. His use of vocal samples is what makes him so special in my opinion.

And definitely feeling MUD right now, they bring out some of the biggest tunes at the moment.

What’s the future of dubstep – where do you see the genre going? Where do you see it fitting in within the wider ‘bass music’ spectrum? Well from what I can see here in Belgium the deeper sounds are definitely coming up, there are a lot of new producers coming out of nowhere delivering quality sounds (just as many sounding all the same but still).

I think the commercial part of dubstep, like we see in the US right now, will have had its highlight soon but the deeper sound will continue to evolve and get its rightful place in ‘bass music history’.

Any forthcoming releases we can look forward to?

I’d like to use this interview to announce the first release on my label, called Therapy Recordings!

The ‘Esoteric EP’ release will consist of two tracks by SYZ and a remix of the title track. The producer remixing Esoteric will be announced soon so keep an eye out for that!

You can find clips of both tracks below:

SYZ – Esoteric

SYZ – The Outer Rim

Have you got any advice to upcoming DJs/ Producers looking to get their music heard or signed? Don’t try to rush things. That’s basically it!

Any shoutouts? Big shoutout to my mate Jan ‘Big-Bong’ Rabbers, with whom I recently formed a DJ duo. Shoutouts to the Catacombs & Knowledge, SYZ, Kaiju, Demon and everyone who has been supporting me/ sending me dubs over the past few years. Also can’t forget to big up the boneyard crew for the late night mixing/ skating sessions!

3 people (dead or alive) you’d go for a beer with (and why)?

  1. Burial – Would love to have a chat about music with him.
  2. Mala – Same reason.
  3. Just anyone who’s up to talk about music.

Best place for picking up vinyl in Belgium? Don’t really buy my vinyl in Belgium, I go to a small record shop just over the Dutch border called “Sam Sam”, really nice people over there and a wide range of wax available.

Submerge or Close Break?
Close Break, that vocal haunts my dreams.

Although Laurens hasn’t produced anything recently, his mixing skills are next level – and his record bag is a thing of beauty! Two thirds of the Concave mix for MIG x FKOF are seriously impressive dubs, ranging from Kaiju to Vaun to Subreachers and many more…
