Thanks taking the time out of your schedule to speak with iVibes!
U`re more than welcome....
i:Vibes: How was your summer? What was your favorite gig?
A: Summer was amazing....DC10 was amazing every time I played there and also the KAZANTIP festival in ukraine was a big highlight!
i:Vibes: Do you have any new productions/remixes coming out in the near future?
A: Remixes for Placebo`s "Space Monkey" and Depeche`s "Personal Jesus" are done and are due to be released...
i:Vibes: Any plans for a follow up to your most recent album, "Pictures"?
A: Yes...I currently started writing nu music with mastermind Martin Buttrich
i:Vibes: Any collaborations?
A: Not yet.ö..its still too early...
i:Vibes: What records have really been going down well lately?
A: Honestly, everything what Martin Buttrich produces...his Solo project, Locodice etc etc...
i:Vibes: Would you consider yourself a DJ first and a producer second, or the other way around?
A: I`m oldschool DJ...nearly 25 years and looove producing also...so 50/50
i:Vibes: Are you running a night in your hometown of Hannover, Germany? What is the local scene like there?
A: No, I don`t...the scene is too small for a residency....BUT I run residencies at THE END in London, DC10 on Ibiza and from early 2007 on at berlin`s legendary TRESOR Club....
i:Vibes: What are your thoughts on the scene in the US? Where is your favorite place to play (in the world)?
A: My favourite place is still Ibiza/DC10 ...I haven`t been to the states really since April this year...will come back eventually for NYE and also Miami next year!
i:Vibes: I know its early, but do you have any idea where you'll be on New Years Eve?
i:Vibes: Are you still playing vinyl? What are your thoughts on new DJing technologies such as Ableton Live and the possibilities of remixing/editing your sound on the fly?
A: I really think, that digital units really sound shit....vinyl has the best dynamic....so I play 95% vinyl really....
i:Vibes: So whats next for Timo Maas? Anything else you'd like to add?
A: I`ll start a new residency at the new TRESORclub in berlin in 2007...very exiting project...also we (Martin Buttrich and me) just remixed Depeche Mode`s "Personal Jesus" and Placebo`s "Space Monkey", we currently started working on new Timo Maas material as well...so watch out!
Thanks for talking to iVibes!!!
