“New Blood 014″ Introducing: Semi Sense

September 15th, 2014

BUY NOW >>> HOSPITAL SHOP / ITUNES

Semi SenseFor people that may not be aware of you… Give us a little introduction of yourself. 
Hello! First of all thank you for contacting me and for doing all these great things! My name is Nikolai, I am from Vilnius, Lithuania. I’m an IT professional, specializing in Business Intelligence and databases. Regarding my involvements in music, I’m concentrating on producing at the moment, and not so active with DJing (although I appeared more or less actively at various Vilnius clubs some years ago). Also from time to time I’m helping my longtime friend Emery with Ambra Recordings label.

How did you get into music? And how did get into production?
There were many recordings at home when I was a child, and as long as I can remember I listened to them a lot. It was mostly rock and hard rock, and a bit of soul and disco music. At the age of 8 I started to attend musical school, piano class. As a teenager I went from hard rock to progressive, psychedelic and art-rock and then to jazz, classic and modern music. Probably about that time I’ve heard The Prodigy tracks. Since then I started thinking about producing. A little bit later Emery introduced me to jungle tunes and early drum’n’bass. I still remember when we were listening to chopped amen break on Lemon D ‘This is Los Angeles’ again and again and it was something unbelievable production wise for us at that time. Tunes like  Goldie’s ‘Inner City Life’, Adam F ‘Circles’ and LTJ Bukem’s ‘Horizons’ just made sure what kind of music I should be into. But now, despite my love for drum’n’bass, I can say for sure that it’s not a matter of style. Music could be of any style for me but it should be as interesting and beautiful as possible.

Regarding production it was long and winding road. To make long story short, I started to produce quite long time ago, but it always was just a hobby, and often not even primary one. I even did several complete breaks from producing for year or two… And probably in the year 2011 I thought perhaps I should take up production more seriuosly and started to move that direction. So, maybe for 4 or 5 months production is my main spare time activity. Continue reading…
