We chat to TC Studio prior to their upcoming London performance….
Once a far fetched clubbing destination, in the recent years there is no doubt that Romania has firmly put itself on the map of electonic dance music both at home and abroad. Since the success of the likes of Arpiar however there has emerged a new wave of the so called “romanian” sound” represented by home labels such as All Inn Records. Today we have a pleasure of chatting to one of their recent signings –TC Studio.

Rhythmatic: Hi guys! How are you today? Here at Rhythmatic we are really enjoying your latest Waste EP release! With your previous productions on Canadian Archipel and German Stritcly Chosen, how do you feel your style has evolved for this first All Inn Records release?
TC Studio: We are glad you guys like it! To be honest, we dont consider our style has necessarily evolved. We are just exploring different areas; not trying to stay in the same place.
R: This is good to hear! You are well known for both your DJ sets as well as your productions. How has being producers influenced your DJ style and vice versa?
TC: We have a small comnuity of followers but we dont consider ourselves to be „well known” as such. On one side Traian focuses more on productions while Matei on Djing; TC Studio is a common ground where we jam ideas, producing both separately and individually, yet always arriving at a common creative ground. Matei has influenced Traian by introducing him to various genres,while Traian has shared a more artistical approach of thought.
R: This is interesting to know. We are also very impressed with your audio visual productions up to date. Do you think that you will continue with such projects like the exhibition that Traian did and how do art and music combine and enhance each other in your work?
TC: One speaks where the other remains in silence. You can’t define expression except through its own medium; visual through painting,sculpture, video while sound through music, noise.
R. In terms of the music, do you feel that there has emerged a distinct Romanian sound in the recent years and how would you describe it?
TC: This is an interesting idea but we believe that description lies in the listener.
R. Well we can’t wait to experience your take on that one;) So far, you have graced the venues of various European cities in the last year, how do you feel the crowd differs from one place to another?

TC: Matei has gigged the most, considering a „good crowd” to be an open crowd; when you have to play music just to entertain then the mood is no longer exciting; but when you find a certain crowd where you can share a personal relationship through the music, mixing becomes a privilege.
R. So, are you looking forward to playing to London crowd at your upcoming All Inn Records Showcase with Rhythmatic and what should we expect for this gig?
TC: We are looking forward to London, we’ll see what goes down.
R:It was great chatting to you guys and we are looking forward to welcoming you in London!
TC: Like wise.
