Premiesku talks Analogue
Samara Moss caught up with Premiesku ahead of their UK debut at Rhythmatic
Q. So, how did Premiesku come about? When did the three of you decide to get together?
A. We had been thinking about it for a long time. We wanted to create a real live project and here it is.
Q. Tell us a bit about the project? Where did the name come from and what is the aim?
A. It’s a techno project, live and studio. We have a Romanian flavored name, we played with some words, actually it’s not a real work, but it has Romanian character. Our aim is to make people dance.
Q. What makes Premiesku different from other DJ collaborations?
A. First of all it’s an analog live project, which is a little bit different we think.
Q. Explain the analogue aspect to the project? How does this work?
A. We were sure that we wanted to skip a setup that revolves around a computer and Ableton live. We considered that it’s nice to present our live concept relatively similar to our studio setup and basically really close to our way of creating the music. It’s true that it’s more difficult to install everything and it also needs a lot of attention during the sound check, but in the end it makes sense. So with the help of a very good friend, we designed three consoles which fit perfectly into our live act.
Q. Do you work well together as a trio? Do you each fulfil different roles…e.g. is one more organised, is one more creative, is one more technical etc?
A. We are all the time together in the studio, we have a nice vibe and each one of us is doing his own thing, more or less described in the question
Q. How long was your debut album ‘Indirect’ been in the making?
A. It took a couple of months, the exact time we don’t really know.

Q. What can we expect from the album?
A. Right now the album it’s out on the web with some snippets, so everybody can hear a little bit of it. At some point it’s more experimental and deep, we wanted to create a “no rules” album.
Of course you’ll find some groovy tracks as well.
Q. Are you looking forward to the album launch at Rhythmatic? I understand you have already played as a group at huge events such as Richie Hawtin’s ENTER this summer, what made you decide Rhythmatic was the best fit for the album launch?
A. We are really looking forward to the launch party. We love Rhythmatic, we played for them before as Livio & Roby and we had an amazing time.
We totally believe it’s the right place to launch our album.
Q. How has the analogue set up been received so far? What kind of reactions have you had and did you get when you revealed the set up at Time Warp Lab in March?
A. Of course everybody is curious, we have good reactions from the people.
The Timewarp lab it’s a really fine place and was an interesting experience, we didn’t expect much, but we were totally surprised to see the audience getting involved. We had the opportunity to present our stuff and worked out.
Q. What else is in store from Premieksu this year and going into 2013?
A. For the moment the album and of course the live act. But we always like to prepare new stuff so let’s see
