We Caught Up With House Producer Fat Men At The Disco For A Chat, Here’s What He Had To Say……….
Tell Us A Bit About Yourself
Hello, My Names Adrian Powell And I Am Fat Men At The Disco And Yes I Can Do The Truffle Shuffle
For Those Who Don’t Know, Tell Us A Bit About Fat Men At The Disco And How It Began.
It Began 3 Years Ago, I Was Playing Locally From The Mid 90s On And Off But Never Wrote Any Music. I Got An Urge To Start Making My Own Music And Decided A New Project Was In Order And Decided To Start To Learn Music Production. I Have Previously Been Accused Of Being Too Fat And Too Old For Clubbing And Djing So This Is Where Fat Men At The Disco Came From.
How Did You Get Into Music Production? What Were The Initial Steps?
Studio Sessions With Experienced Producers Was The Route For Me. I’ve Been Lucky Enough To Have A Talented Pool Of Producer Friends And Family. Initially I Started Learning With Alex Powell Of The Squatters And What’s Your Status Records As Well As Ian Bland Of Dream Frequency And Maison Records. Both Highly Experienced And Highly Talented Producers. I Spent Many Hours With Both. But I Don’t Actually Think You Learn Properly Until You Sit There On Your Own In Front Of The Screen Writing Tracks.
How Would You Describe Your Production Style?
A Little Bit Of A Mix Of Genres. I Think I’m In The Ghetto House And House Genre But I Have Been Described As Uk Garage And Uk Bass By Others.
Was There A Moment Or A Tune Or A Dj Set That Made You Decide You Were Going To Produce And Was It Always Going To Be?
Leeds Dj Graham Dixon, What A Guy. His Djing Skills Where Out There. Always A Joy To Watch. There’s Rumours That He Was The One Who Taught Sasha To Scratch In The Leeds House Music Revolution Of The Late 80s & 90s. His Music Production Was Dirty And Earned Him The Name Dirty Dixon. He Was Definitely My Inspiration.
Which Events From Over The Years In Your Illustrious Career Really Stick In Your Mind And Why?
There’s Been A Few Of Them. I’ve Been Lucky Enough To Dj For Passion In Sutton Coalfield With Paul Van Dyke Or There’s Playing With Marshall Jefferson In Leeds, Rob Tissera For Kissdafunk, Glasshouse, Brandon Block …… There’s Loads But These Stick Out.
What Was Your First Experience Of House Music And How Did You Get Into The Sound?
Youth Club In The Mid 90s, I Was A Dj There, My 1st Gigs Ever Playing Acid House And Hard House. Stuff Like La Style – James Brown Is Dead, The Prodigy, Altern8 And Utah Saints
Who Were Your Major Influences In Terms Of Music Production?
I’m Loving Demarzo At The Moment. His Music Is Amazing. I’m Also Liking Sol Brothers, Vanilla Ace, Sirus Hood And Rob Made. I Also Like Some Of The Local Talent Round Here. The Likes Of Steve Haley And Craig Dickson.
When Would You Say Was Your Breakout Moment When Heads Turned To You Music?
Ha Ha!, Think I’m Still Waiting For That Moment. Though I Am Looking Forward To An EP I’m Releasing On Drenched Records. Drenched Are Going To Be A Major Label And Have Some Serious Backing With Releases From The Likes Of Vanilla Ace And Support From Annie Mac.
What Made You Choose House As A Genre?
I Don’t Think I Chose The Genre. I Just Make It And It Finds Its Own Genre.
If You Could Work On A Track With Anyone From Now Or Way Back When, Who Would It Be?
From Back In The Day It Would Have To Be Toni De Vit. He Was One Of My Favourite 90s DJs, Today I Think Sirus Hood Or Demarzo.
And If You Could Remix Any Tune Of Your Choice, Which One Would You Choose And Why?
Show Me Love By Robin S…. Joking, Don’t Really Know Really. Stumped Me That One.
Tell Us About Any Other Music Related Stuff You’re Involved In
Currently Working On My Own Record Label Fmatd Recordings Which I Am Hoping To Make Live At The Back End Of The Year.
Could You Offer A Bit Of Advice For A Up And Coming Producer?
Yeah, Don’t Pay Anyone For Anything Musically, There’s Lots Of People Out There That Will Take Your Money For Services That You Don’t Need. It All Happens Automatically. You Don’t Need An Agency Until Your Reputable, Don’t Pay For Likes And Followers Either. I Mean Why Would You? You Paying For Someone To Add Followers From Fake Accounts That Actually Never Listen To Your Music. I’d Rather Have Just 100 Listeners That Listened Then 10,000 Play Clicks To Make You Look Popular.
Describe To Us Your Approach To A Dj Set, Do You Like To Gently Warm Up The Crowd Or Go For The Bangers Or More Of A Journey Approach?
I Never Plan A Set. I Pick A Load Of Tracks I Like With Varying Tunes And Try Feel What The Crowd Want. Then Give Them It. If Its Funk Or “bangers” I Try Read The Crowd. I Never Try Force Music Into A Crowd. Id Rather Play To A Full Room Then Empty One.
As A Producer, You Keep An Open Mind And An Open Palette Producing In Various Styles, Who Do You Draw Influences From?
I Like To Take Bits From Varying Genres, If I Like It Or It Fits It Gets Written In. I Like Adding Subliminal Sound Changes That As A Music Fan You Wouldn’t Notice But As A Producer It Makes The Track. Take A Kick Out Or Add A Kick There Can Make The Difference. I Love The Musical Build Ups Before The Drops From Late 90’S And 2000’S Tracks And I Do Try Transfer That Into My Music. I Try To Make It Uplifting Funky With Dirty Basslines
What Are The Vital Elements To Making A Tune That Come Into Play When You’re In The Studio?
Easy, 8 Bars, A Kick Ass Kick Drum And Rocking Bassline. Start There And Feel The Groove.
Who Have You Enjoyed Making Music With The Most And Who Would You Still Like To Colab With?
Ian Bland Is The Craziest Mother Of All. Try Making Beats In A Studio Whilst Wearing A Roman Soldiers Helmet Whilst His Dog Sits And Stairs At You With Shades On! Colab Wise Would Be Any Of My Favourite Producers. Though Deadmaus Looks Like He Would Be Fun To Be In The Studio With. Would Love To Get On His Twitter Account When He’s Not Looking And Stir Some Shit Up Ha Ha!
Any Final Words And Shout Outs?
Just Thank You To Everyone Who’s Supported My Music Including You Guys For This Opportunity. Drenched Records, Maison Records, Lw Recordings, 13 Records, Mccloy Artist Management, The Squatters, Ian Bland And Most Of All My Very Understanding Misses. She Understands What Music Means To Me And She Has Supported More Than Any
