Kasper Marott & Alfredo92: The Ransom Note Mix
Lock and load, this one is coming in hot.
Kasper Marott and Alfredo92 are two names to emerge with prominence from Denmark, the pair have collaborated on a sprawling array of projects and concepts in recent years. However, it is only recently that they have formally announced new music as a duo on their new label Axces to which they describe the imprint as follows…
"Greetings and welcome from Axces. We're a small local Copenhagen community of friends and curious souls. This is our very first record. Alfredo92 and Kasper Marrot run the label, and they've produced two tracks with help from our good friends Carl Emil and Lauge.
The record was created in 2017 at the professional facilities we've come to know as Nordvest Auto. On both tracks, you'll hear a lot of drums, some bass, effects, samples, vocals and sounds from beyond, we don't know how to describe. They've been tested on various sound systems during the past year, and we can ensure you that a flat EQ and max volume will suit the tracks almost anywhere.
We really hope you enjoy our effort. If you should ever find yourself in Copenhagen Axces will provide counselling and guidance at own risk."
Respectively they are both killer disc jockeys and have received firm support from a number of names including the likes of Courtesy, Modeselektor and beyond.
We are delighted to be able to bring you a mix from the pair – back2back2back2back etc. You know the deal.
Listen and read the interview below:
Please introduce yourself… Who are you, where are you and what are you?
Two Gentlemen with a big interest in music.
What does your music sound like? Can you draw what you think it sounds like for us (an image from the old internet is acceptable)?
Where was the mix recorded?
The mix was recorded in Alfredo’s apartment on a pair of record players, a borrowed CDJ and a borrowed mixer.
What would be the ideal setting to listen to the mix?
The idea of the mix was to try and capture some of the spontaneity we have when we play b2b. We recorded it pretty much from the top of our heads. The ideal setting would be on your bike full speed on your way to work.
What should we be wearing?
Your work clothing and a helmet.
What would be your dream setting to record a mix: Location/system/format?
Whitehaven beach in Whitsundays Australia during tourist season. We need a portable DJ setup and a float to play our DJ set from the water.
Which track in the mix is your current favourite?
The third track Thinktank – Bent Chemistry. Check out their EP from 2017 as well its sick
What’s your favourite recorded mix of all time?
Gemini live at deep in the flowers is always a winner. Tape compression and insane party mixing.
If you could go back to back with any DJ from throughout history, who would it be and why?
What was your first DJ set up at home and what is it now?
First DJ setup was a IMG stage Line PRO DJ Dual cd player and a crappy Behringer mixer.
First setup was an IBM computer and one technics 1200.
Today we both have two turntables and a mixer which are more or less working.
What’s more important, the track you start on or the track you end on?
In terms of recording the mix it might be the first one but all traxx are important.
What were the first and last records you bought?
The first record bought was Metallica – Ride the Lightning and the latest was Rank- electronic pleasures produced by the Danish Legend Lasse Steen.
First record was some random disco comp called 100 disco hits and then just bought is Underworld-Dark and long 2.
If this mix was an edible thing, what would it taste like?
It would taste like the dish of the day at streetfood 108. Nicely mixed and rather spicy
If it was an animal what would it be?
One record in your collection that is impossible to mix into anything?
Phase I – memories
Upcoming in the world of…
Axces is a lot of nice music.
