“…it was super cool to release a track with him – it was really on another level.”
THE STAGE, Liverpool – April 1, 2017
THE STAGE by Third Party in Liverpool / UK was an unforgettable night. We have not only had the chance to interview Pete K (read it here: http://electricline.com.mx/2017/04/pete-k-interview-the-stage-liverpool/) but also the owner and founder of Bibliothèque Records. In this interview, Sebjak talks his label, his inspirations and his future plans.
How did you get into producing music and when did you start to produce your first track?
I got into producing music pretty late, when I was around 20 years old. It was a lot of fun back then. I started producing music because I was not getting girls (laughs). No, just kidding. Music has always been in my life. My mom and dad were always listening to music when I came home from school and especially on Fridays and Saturdays. They enjoyed a glass of wine and were always dancing around with myself and my three sisters. My father was also into sound systems and brought me to certain hi-fi fairs to check the newest trends. To be honest, I didn’t understand much in the beginning, but after a while I started appreciating those sound systems too. That gave me the bug and made me start producing music. When I started, I totally underestimated the effort that was needed to create good electronic music, although I’ve attended a music school it was still a steep learning curve. As I’ve mentioned before, I started producing at 20, but released my first track only at 23 so it took my three years to bring out my first track.
What is the most excited thing you have done in your career so far?
I think the most excited thing I’ve done so far in my career was to release a track with Steve Angello. Releasing music is more than just playing festivals like Mysteryland, Tomorrowland or Creamfields. Steve was one of my inspirations when I started producing music. That’s why it was super cool to release a track with him – it was really on another level, a dream come true you could say.
When did you start your label “Bibliothèque Records” and what made you start it?
I felt like I wanted to do something new. I was seeing the EDM business and scene going down and I felt like that this was the perfect opportunity to show what I really like and want to play during my sets. That’s why it is different from the stuff I used to play last year because these tracks reflect my taste more. I’m not disgusted by the music that I played up to last year, but I’ve been over that kind of music before others were over it. For me it’s just an evolutionary process.
Enjoy the preview of Plommon by Sebjak. Out 01/05/17 on Bibliothèque Records.
What do you think of Third Party’s development as artists and do you like their album “HOPE”?
I think Third Party are the only guys that are sticking to their own thing. For me, they are not playing “EDM” as I see it, they play their sets more like a journey. Every time I listen to their set, I’m super happy that they are doing their own thing and keeping it real. I’ve know them for 5-6 years already and they’ve always been the same and I really respect that.
Are you having any future collaborations with upcoming artists coming up?
Yes, I do, but I can’t reveal anything yet, it’s still a secret. But it’s going to be sick!
Thank you so much for your time!
