Louisahhh!!! And Maelstrom - Influences

"Techno used to be about the future, and now it seems it mainly reflects nostalgia for the past."

LOUISAHHH!!! and Maelstrom have just come together to form a brand new label - RAAR. They've entered into this exciting new venture as equal partners with "a creative ethos not limited to music" and their debut outing sees the pair line up alongside Techno's newest super group Roijacker, aka Dave Clarke, Black Asteroid and Mr. Jones for a six track offering. We thought that this was the perfect time to get the pair to tell us about some of the things that have inspired them and, as you can see above, they duly obliged.


RAAR 001 is out on 6th November via RAAR.

Bill Viola - Reflecting Pool

LOUISAHHH!!! - When the Grand Palais in Paris had a Bill Viola retrospective, I ended up going back twice because it was so good. The artist works with video in a way that meditates and questions time, data-structure, viewer emotional response. This was the first work presented in that show and it impacted me profoundly. Watching it changes how I feel; my internal compass is somehow reset by this work. Viola's innovative 'new media' projections and presentations are also really interesting...I'm definitely taking notes from him for live performance concepts.
