Artist Interview Tommigo aka The Cleaners



Your latest track „Greedy Rattle“ is going to be released soon on Konsulat. How did the track develop? What does it convey?
Tommigo: The track was a matter of luck. I was searching for bassdrums, as it happened that the bassdrum ran through a verb and afterwords a vocoder. I liked that sound very much, so I started to create “Greedy Rattle”, added a voicelike synthesizer and recorded the voice-sample. And I remember that arranging and mixing was really fun, cause this track can run for hours in a loop and still doesn´t get on your nervs – well, I guess 😉

“Greedy Rattle” has the honour to kick off the new label Konsulat. What does that mean to you?
Tommigo: Like you say – this is really a big honour! It seems like the Konsulat crew is running a good business and I hope both of us will have a profit out of it.

For twelve years you have been working professionally as a musician and sound engineer. What kind of projects are you involved with?
Tommigo: I try out everything – only one style or direction would not be good for me. I am getting bored too soon. I did scores for movies, sound for TV and advertising and I am working with artists. My own clubprojects are tommiGO and The Cleaners. But I also create downbeat and loungemusic as Leon Rodt. At the moment I am doing the sounddesign for a new game for children that´s gonna be out next year.

What fascinates you about electronic music more than about other styles?
Tommigo: It is definitely the kind of music, that brings out new ideas, styles and techniques of producing and creating sound. Nowhere you find so many neards and freaks – and I mean it in an absolutely positive way!

What can we expect from you next?
Tommigo: My next releases will be on Robeat5 Records. First the Munich House Mafia’s first E.P. and later the first Sir Ged single release, called Minimo. In January there will be a vocal house release by The Cleaners on System Records New York. And the new tommiGO is already at work. You will definitely hear from me!
