DSCO: Let's get to it shall we. Please give my reader’s a little background information on Homework. How did this duo first come to be?
Homework: When people ask us this, there’s always a tendency to quote the Will Ferrell movie Blades Of Glory: “Spawned in the hell fires of Motown.” But sadly it’s not that exotic. We met while working in undoubtedly the best record store in Amsterdam, Concerto. It wasn’t long before we realized we were both into electronic music and dj’ing. So we decided to dj together at the birthday of a mutual friend of ours. It was a big success and we never really played solo after that. Things just took off from there. We started organizing parties in Amsterdam and step by step we gained some acclaim. All that time we were experimenting with producing music.
DSCO: How would you guys’ describe your sound. I believe the answer to this question can be very telling of the artist.
Homework: It’s hard to give a definitive answer to that question. Genres and styles change very rapidly in contemporary dance music these days. The best way to dub our style would be to just call it house music, since that is quite a broad term and we’re trying to stay open-minded to different aspects within that spectrum of dance music. On the other hand, as long as it inspires us it can be any sort of musical style.
DSCO: Would you guys’ prefer DJing in front of a loud, responsive audience, or being hidden away, in the studio, creating your next hit?
Homework: Both have their pros and cons, but the feeling of being connected to a crowd through the music is a great feeling. Especially when you see a crowd go wild to one of our tracks!
DSCO: Producers can become very attached to a particular piece of work. I know this is a difficult question to answer, but what track would you say is your proudest work?
Homework: Every production is like a child and as a proud parent we love all of our children equally. Of course Fissa Tune has a special place, because it was so well received and gave us so much attention internationally. Also our remix of Paradise by Art Nouveau is very dear to us. We tried to do something totally different with that one.
DSCO: Fissa Tune, one of my absolute favorite tracks at the moment, will be released on Exploited Records on July 2nd. First off, how excited are you guys’ for this thing to finally drop? Explain the creative process the two of you went through when you created Fissa Tune?
Homework: We are so happy for the release of Fissa Tune and the other three tracks! We spend a long time on coming up with a good selection of tracks and it’s very nice to see our work paying off. Fissa Tune was born out of a love for what was once dubbed ‘midget’. A trend in house music that combined a minimal, almost tech house, basis with hip-hop like sampling of, mostly, world music influences. We wanted to give our own, original swing to that and what emerged was Fissa Tune.
DSCO: Who would you say is your favorite producer at the moment? Why?
Homework: There isn’t really one in particular. We admire a lot of artists from all sort of different genres. Within the house spectrum we’re really impressed by the new work of guys like Tim Green, Round Table Knights, Ramon Tapia and Jesse Rose, but also by what the guys over at Wolf + Lamb Records are doing. But we’re just as psyched about for instance the work of Bibio, even though that might not work in a club environment.
DSCO: Your tracks have a mesmerizing simplicity about them, and yet they are so rich sounding and fulfilling to the ear. What would you say is your favorite part of your musical creations? The instruments used? The samples? The reception?
Homework: Sampling is a very important part of our production process. Jesse Rose once said that it’s like making your own, personal collage of parts you find interesting. Of course sampling is sort of a weird thing, because you take a thing that somebody else has made and turn it into something that you can call your own. While producing we’re always on the lookout for things that fascinate us. Most of the time finding the right samples is far more important to us than finding, for instance, the right synthesizer sound.
DSCO: Out of all your DJ performances, which one proved to be your favorite? Why?
Homework: Most of the time the more intimate the better, but it all depends on the atmosphere and the way people react to what you’re doing. If you can win a crowd over and see them react to the ‘groove’ you’re trying to present to them, that’s an amazing experience.
DSCO: What can we expect from Homework in the future? Any remixes or originals we should be aware of? Any plans to tour the States?
Homework: We’re taking it step by step. The release of our EP on Exploited will and has brought us a lot of exposure. There are some new productions in the making and we’re looking forward to do a few remixes in the near future. At the moment there aren’t any plans to go to the States, but things are happening so fast as of lately, who knows, maybe we’ll be touring the US before the end of the year. Anything is possible!
DSCO: Now that we know each other a bit better, let’s have some fun. What has been the strangest, funniest, or weirdest occurrence you’ve ever experienced because of your musical career?
Homework: The weirdest thing remains when people recognize us as being Homework. The whole ‘Hey, you’re one of the guys from Homework’- thing is quite flattering.
DSCO: Thank you for speaking with me and I wish you both the best of luck in the future. Homework will always have a friend in DSCO ; ).
