Bella ragazzi. È con un tono un po’ solenne che vi annuncio che questa potrebbe essere l’ultima intervista della stagione. Avete presente i Maya, le profezie, la fine del mondo? Bene, dimenticate tutto. Il vero problema è che se continuo a bere con la frequenza e/o l’intensità con cui inizio adesso le mie settimane, non arrivo al 2013. Voi che invece siete in ansia perché vi siete appena accollati un mutuo-che-a-saperlo-finiva-davvero-il-mondo-continuavo-a-pagare-l’affitto-in-nero, piuttosto che organizzare saccheggi di massa o rapine in banca, questo venerdì venite ad esorcizzare la (non) paura sulle note di Xinobi.
Lui, proprio lui, il best buddy di Moullinex che da queste parti conosciamo bene e che ha da poco prodotto un ottimo album per la loro etichetta comune – la Discotexas – è stato scelto da Le Cannibale per farvi ballare come se non ci fosse un domani. Qui vi beccate l’intervista, venerdì 21 dicembre la serata al Tunnel di Milano. Non rimanete a casa. Se proprio deve finire il mondo che almeno siate in buona compagnia.
1) Hello Bruno, introduce yourself to our readers.
Hello, my name is Bruno, some people know me as Xinobi. I’m from Portugal and I feel I’m too young for my age.
2) (Why do you hate the sound of) guitars? Is it a provocation?
I don’t hate the sound of the guitars at all. It was just punchline I got to this track I made. That track has guitars playing all over it. And I played them. It might sound as a provocation somehow. A lot of people really believe I hate guitars.
3) In all your followers’ mind, you and Moullinex are a so solid couple, even more that a married couple. If you were forced to change buddy, who would he be and why?
That’s a really hard question. It might sound stupid, but not having the opportunity to work with him anymore could be a really strong reason to give up on all of this. I would like to work with Ennio Morricone. Why? Because it sounds impossible.
4) I know you were a major in fine arts. Are you currently looking after all the visual communication of your label? Or at least is there your personal taste’s influence on it?
The label artwork is not mine. Moullinex’s doing it nowadays. There’s of course something of mine on it. My bless and my approval at least.
5) Let’s do a game together. I think that your music is deeply related to ’70es, ’80es ad ’90es films, it reminds me a lot of Italian or American movies. I’ll name some of your songs, you’ll tell me what film you link to them: Bmx, Day Off, Woodstock.
Bmx – I could easly go for BMX bandits but instead… Karate Kid 1.
Day Off – Beverly Hills Cop
Woodstock – Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke
If you would ask me about (I Hate the Sound of) Guitars, Sergio Leone would probably be mentioned.
6) Are you thinking about extending the horizon of genres produced by your label to new stuff you heard around?
Always. If you check the whole catalogue you will certainly notice it as really eclectic. It’s so good to try and stay coherent yet diverse.
7) Our editorial staff has prepared some charts for the best things happened in music during 2012, as every respectable magazine does at the end of the year. So we’d like to know from you one name for the following categories: best artist, best new comer, best remix and best album.
Best artist – Ty Segal
Best new comer – Rebeka
Best remix – Hot Chip – How do you do (Todd Terje remix)
Best album – Moullinex – Flora
8) Here in Milan it’s snowing a lot, the town is romantic, and the light is so amazingly soft by night. Would you like we bring you to have a walk in a particular spot after your djset? Thank you Bruno, can’t wait for friday!
You’re the locals, you have to guess what I might like. Speaking about snow and cold weather, I still don’t have proper winter clothing. Damn.
