Answers So Far..

  • Someone asked:
    Whats are some stories of yours or your guests that you hope don't end up in the "Secret DJ" book ?
  • Someone asked:
    I've been producing for a few years and find it really frustrating...the stuff I make is just not good enough. I keep trying because I have such a strong desire to make something that sounds as good as the stuff I love, but I often just want to give up. If I believed that I could make a Frozen Border record by keeping my nose to the grindstone for another 5 years, I would think that it was all worth it. But I normally feel like I just don't have the magic and that, no matter how hard I try, it will just never completely click. So the questions are: how common is it for successful producers, when they are learning the ropes, to think that they're never going to make anything that doesn't completely suck? And is it common for that discouraging feeling to last a long time (like years)?
  • Someone asked:
    Have a talk about playdifferently Model 1.What du you think? What do you think the ambassadors think? Just pushing Richie? Why are Friends of him like Sven, not using it? Get Chris Liebing to the Show, pleeeease 🙂 Rob
  • Someone asked:
    Dustin, what is your definition of 'rough and ready' techno that you often reference? Do you classify doing one take with a Prophet 08 'rough and ready'? Or is it one take with all the machines running? Using soft synths or hardware? Is your techno 'rough and ready'? or is someone like Tensel a 'rough and ready' producer?
  • Someone asked:
    What's your thoughts on people like Patrick Topping playing Techno? He was originally a house DJ with releases from Hot Creations do you feel a lot of DJ's are buying into the Techno scene? Mark
  • Someone asked:
    I recently heard from a pretty legitimate source that a certain techno duo that have been around for over 2 decades use a ghost producer. They've played and still play very credible parties at places like Berghain and run an established label. What's your thoughts on ghost producing and artistic integrity? I understand in the current DJ climate it's hard to get gigs without having your own releases but surely this undermines the truly honest and hardworking producers and DJs that exist?
  • Someone asked:
    What's the deal with booking a DJ/getting booked. Does the promoter pay for the hotel and transport or is this just included in a DJ's fee? Also I'm sure you don't want to discuss your fee but what kind of fee would a beginning DJ playing smaller sized clubs be expecting?
  • Someone asked:
    What are your thoughts on drug-use within the techno scene? Are they an integral part of techno music and culture or not? Bonus follow up question: Thoughts on playing for a really druggy crowd, is it really annoying, fun or something you don't even notice?
  • Someone asked:
    Hey Dustin, Rich J (Operator) here, this is a question for the Function episode, but I guess you could ask any guest - how do you and your guest (s) deal with jetlag? Tips for sorting sleep patterns out? I feel like being well rested is often important to DJing well, and also studio productivity, yet in our game everyone's sleep deprived-as-fuck. Wondering how people manage, touring all the time. I find it very difficult, as I'm a shitty sleeper anyway. Would of liked to of asked this to Dave Flores and Moe when they were on, as they fly back and forth from the States. Seems crazy! Enjoying the podcast, keep it up 🙂
  • Someone asked:
    Hey guys, this is probably the most fun and interesting podcast about techno out there, thank you and keep it fun please. I have a question about the renaissance of the live hardware techno (or analog) acts out there and whats your position and point of view about taking techno or electronic music to a more purist stage of actually delivering a live act. I'm interested on knowing your thoughts as a DJ and producer and maybe some personal experiences in this matter. Thank you, Ruth
