Kaiserdisco: "In No One's Shadow"
Kaiserdisco duo has gained reputation with their high quality dance floor tracks all around the globe and they are finally here with their debut from a highly ancitipated label: MBF.

MBF team really released tracks of the artists and names that they really believe and trust. Kaiserdisco has build up a huge fanbase for thmeselves for a long time now. And MBF has always knew this and it was not a surprise for me when I heard they are gonna release thier debut back in August. And At the end of October the album called “In No One’s Shadow“ is finally released.

I was also lucky to ask them some questions about the album and their current life. We are really lucky to have their debut and to hear what they are capable of, other then club gems. They have done a such great long player which we still enjoy.

Are you happy with your debut? How long did it take you to finish?
From the beginning to the end including editing and mastering, we worked on it for 3 months, we produced about 1 track per week. And yes we are absolutely happy with it!
Releasing an album from MBF is a privileged thing you know. Riley rarely releases long players. What was in his mind and how did this debut journey come up? Could you please talk a little about it?
MBF/Traum Schallplatten is a great label. They work very hard to push you as an artist and they have great artists like Piemont, Roland M. Dill or Max Cooper who all release very good music on every release.  And so MBF was from the beginning a label we loved to release on.

To release an album is always a privilege, but as an A&R you have to be sure that the artist can do more than producing 12“ club tools. With an album you want to tell a story, something about you! How you grew up, what kind of music you like to hear beside the club life and what makes you unique. For both of us it is our first step into the album world and we are very happy and proud with the result.
Why don't you take aside a specific genre and go on with it? You have a variety of sounds in your album...
We have been both working as DJs for more than 10 years. In the beginning we both played as resident DJs long sets for more than 5-8 hours. So we always needed a huge bag of records with different genres. Something to get the people into the mood of dancing, a few peak time bombs in different styles and something to make the night special.

Nobody wants to hear only hits, they want to get entertained and hear something different, something that makes a DJ or artist unique. “In No One's Shadow“ is our view of one night with Kaiserdisco.
Do you have personal favourites in the album or tracks that have interesting stories behind?
Yes we both have our favourite tracks. Patrick likes “Marie“, “Djuma Of Love“ and “In No One's Shadow“ and I like “Dance On The Moon“, “Tripping Lure“ and “Djuma Of Love“ as well.

“Djuma Of Love“ is the only track that was already produced way before the album idea. We produced it in Summer 2009 and always played it as our closing track. It’s the perfect last track for us.
I am curious about your name, Kaiserdisco. Could you tell me the history?
We both had other projects with other partners before. When we met up in 2008 we left the other projects and created our name out of a mixture of our older project names, so Kaiserdisco was born.
What do you do these days, are there any new projects?
At the moment we are working on our first Live Act, it's important for us to present the album also live. It will be a mixture of album tracks, favourite remixes and Kaiserdisco classics. There are also a few remixes waiting to be finished and after that we will start working on the second Drumcode release which will be out in February 2011.
What do you know about Istanbul and it's scene, would you like to play here?
Honestly we don't know much about the club scene in Istanbul but we would love to play there.
What are your opinions about the current progression of the electronic music scene?
There are still the same ups and downs like every year. At the moment some producers are trying to bring vocal house back and others are trying to bring harder techno back. That will go on till a new style is born and than everybody will copy it till its dead again.
Where do you reside? Do you have some favourite spots for, playing, clubbing or as a tourist?
Every country is different, Germany can be cool but we love to play In other countries, like Columbia, Norway or England. The people know how to party there!
And lastly maybe you can give us some names, from your current favourites list (or case)?
We are always try to find good new artists, but the main problem is the most young artists are only able to create 1-2 good tracks and then its over or its turns boring.

So to be sure to say the right names we could say big names like Nic Fanciulli, Popof or Adam Beyer but for us it's more interesting to find people like F. Sonik, Raditz Room, Alessio Mereu, because they are fresh, hot and able to produce more great tunes than one or two, so keep an eye on them.
