Golosa: Hi LA SCHMOCK, how can you describe your sounds?
LA SCHMOCK: Influenced by my roots, the sound of 80s, Synthpop, Italo-Disco, Funk, New Jack Swing, 90s House & Techno, I found my direction of dance-music in a cosmic mixture of housy disco-electronic. On the other side I’m a big fan of cheezy synth-wave and Italo Disco. But after the great times of NuDisco I also returned to more house music and techno. It always depends: Which mood I am, what do I like at the moment, what do I find on new music, what kind of party, what kind of people, location, time of the year. It’s unexpected ….
Could you talk about the mix that you share today with us?
It includes several different styles that I like. I recorded it very quickly like cooking with ingredients you just find in your fridge and so it’s a quick menu or more precisely a little journey starting with some disco continuing to more punching housy tunes.
What is your freakiest experiences?
I could tell you so many. Especially recently from the Whole Festival… But I won’t do this in public. 😉
