Interview with Ninetoes
How did you first get introduced to underground dance music?
It was my uncle. He was a club DJ back then and I think I was 4 or 5 when I’ve seen him djing in a club. And after I’ve seen him I knew this is what I want to do!
What is the most challenging part of becoming a full-time producer?
Honestly…. nothing! It’s the best Job in the world!
What has been the most exciting turning point of your career so far?
Releasing Finder in 2013!
Where is your home base? If someone were visiting there for the first time, what clubs and/or parties and/or restaurants would they want to check out?
Berlin. They should definitely go to Zola (best neapolitan pizza in town). Drink the best Coffee at Concierge and go to Berghain or Sisyphos to burn the calories afterwards.
What advice would you give to an aspiring producer?
Just be yourself and don’t try to be someone else. Get inspired but don’t copy.
What’s on the horizon for Ninetoes the remainder of 2016 and beyond?
I just released ‚Finder‘ on Sony UK with a great Fatboy Slim Edit. Then.. releasing my first single on Moon Harbour in October. Also a new single on Play it Down. Watch out for them!
Do you have any hobbies outside of music?
Not really. Music is my biggest passion and hobby.. But I try to do sports as much as I can.
What are some touristy things you do while playing in a foreign city?
Normally I don’t have so much time in other cities. Most of the time it’s just an in and out thing. But when there is time I try to do sightseeing and the most important thing: try the regional food and beer.
