The French-Berlin based artist continues to push his awesome sound and gain more and more plaudits having released on labels like Electric Rescue’s Skryptöm, Len Faki’s Figure, Dynamic Reflection and many more.
The track itself is restrained, looping and modular all in one, creating vivid images of computer circuitry in battle with itself. The understated and hypnotic flow it encompasses provides progressions in the form of intense pulses, and where the break builds to a highlight crescendo delivering the goods as an effective DJ tool.

Q&A with Leghau
> What was the thinking behind this track and did you achieve what you set out?
There was not a real idea behind this track and that’s mainly the case with all the tracks that I produce. I’m not planning anything when I arrive at the studio, I just turn on the gear and computer then ideas come step by step according to my mood, concentration and time I have invested in learning the equipment. In the end I was satisfied by the result on this one, it’s pretty simple but efficient for DJ’s as perhaps a tool.
> What tips and advice can you share to any producers on shaping their own sound?
It’s generally a long process and also not easy to come up with your own sound signature, so you need to work, work and work a lot. Also always take the time to learn/experiment/research, discover new things with the machines/computer, in order to to get to the point where you have your own workflow, methods, your own FX rack for example or your own ‘secret techniques’ as it were. Just don’t try to be influenced by other artists too much, it’s great to get to the point of listening to one of your tracks and you can’t say the sentence “OK, it sounds like…” Finally don’t be afraid to spend hours and hours tweaking some projects, then in the end just deleting them, because all the invested time becomes the value and will become useful at a later date.
