Their latest EP, ‘Body Check’, released on 9th of September on Viper Recordings, is complex and original, showcasing Mob Tactics’ flawless production talent and features a whole spectrum of styles.
We got to chat with them about their new EP, and we also exchanged our thoughts on the shutdown of the legendary club, Fabric.
02. Tell us something really interesting about Mob Tactics which we can’t find anywhere on the internet, like a little known secret or fact.
03. How are things different after you guys signed to Viper Recordings last year?
04. Who are the artist’s you guys look up to in the scene & why?
05. Fabric has played a key role in the London, or should we say, in the world wide Drum and Bass scene. We were gutted to hear about the legendary club closing down, especially with all the back-story going on. What’s your take it?
A: We’ve been pretty vocal about our opinion on the matter: it’s an absolute disgrace. Fabric is an institution that reaches worldwide across all genres of dance music. The whole thing stinks of corruption and ignorance and its heart-breaking to see ANOTHER amazing club bite the dust like that. I feel so sorry for the next generation of club-goer in the UK; where’s left?
06. What is your best moment as a raver and as a producer duo at Fabric?
As DJ’s it was probably our first ever time playing there for Viper. We’d both dreamed of playing there for years and to see that dream realised was incredible. We’ll never forget that moment.
07. Let’s talk about your new EP ‘Body Check’ on Viper, which features a whole spectrum of styles from you guys. Tell us more about the journey in the making of the release.
Anyway, I digress… Yeah, the EP tracks were written over the space of a few months and then several months mixing them down. We really felt on a roll at the time and we were enjoying writing different stuff – which we feel is reflected in the EP.
08. The track ‘Dot Matrix’ is quite a contrast from the rest tracks of the EP. Any story behind it?
09. For the tech-geeks, what’s your music production set-up like? And what’s your advice to the up and coming DnB producers and DJs?
• FL Studio
• Virus TI 2 Polar
• UAD Apollo
• Adam A77X monitors
• Mackie HR824 monitors• Mackie Big Knob
Just keep at it. Don’t bog yourself down with too much too soon. Choose your tools carefully – a select few – and learn them inside out before moving on to installing five million VST’s on to your computer. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Some of our biggest tracks to date have been the result of trying things that didn’t necessarily seem like they’d work at the time. Forge your own your own sound: if you’re doing it right, people will notice.
10. Care to share a little piece of technical advice that we won’t find while going through online tutorials?
11. What’s the funniest / craziest thing that has ever happened to you during a gig?
12. If you weren’t in the music business, what would your alternate career choice be and why?
Mark: Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to dance, so I’d probably follow my lifelong dream of joining the dream boys. Maybe it’s not too late…
11. You just found out that your last gig ever is tomorrow, what would be your closing track?
