Q&A with 30drop
> 01. The Time of Cruel Miracles has a solid Techno theme throughout it and staying within certain parameters, which is something I definitely appreciate as a listener… what was the main inspiration behind this collection?
For this album the inspiration comes completely from the Solaris work of Stanislav Lem.
> 02. What tips and advice can you share to any producers on shaping their own sound?
Better advice: Don’t try to make your own sound. This is a big mistake. You must make music and flow with it. The kind of sound you create will come later.
> 03. What is your go to track at the moment by another artist?
Jeff Mills “i9” [Axis Records] (1996)
