As a maker of electronic music I’m still learning. As a listener I come from a clear background of techno parties, so I’m used to locking into a hypnotic kind of slow evolving cohesion. Not really accustomed to listen to more eclectic sets. But as a maker I tend to not create that cohesively (yet?). Not that I make eclectic stuff for the sake of it, but when I line them up in a try-out techno set I realize that they diverge more then dancefloor sets I’m accustomed of.
When preparing/doing a live set, do you stick within a certain narrative, genre, bpm range, or stylistic framework, to keep people locked in? Maybe that’s just a good musical method to help people enjoy? Or if you play more dynamic/eclectic, are you thinking of ways to keep the set being cohesive? Or not at all?
