Back again this week with another Disc Breaks exclusive guest mix, this time we’re lucky enough to have 9b0!
Over the last couple of years he has had releases out through Electrofly, Morphosis Records and Glack Audio – always pushing the deeper more melodic sounds. Most recently was Combine/Typewriter for Electrofly and doing the promo rounds at the moment is his latest out through Glack Audio – Antilightbulb, backed up with huge remixes by Beta and Retroid – watch for this when it drops!
When he sent the mix through he described it as ‘Lots of glitch-hop, breakbeat and electronika (even some dubstep, glitch and ambient). 19 tracks in less than 60 minutes” – it is awesome, so make sure you’re tuned in for this one 😀
I also have to point out that he is the man behind all the quality Glack Audio artwork – his design work is very cool so make sure you check his site linked below AND he writes music software – yeah, the guy is seriously talented.
I was born under the name: Balázs Gyutai, but you probably know me as 9b0, which is still hard to remember and still none of you will be sure how to spell it even if you know the characters it is made of: 9 b 0 (nine B zero, and yes, spell it like this). It’s generally the same, as you would like to write (B) without pressing shift on the english keyboard layout.
I’m connected with music since the first day i can remember, and try to produce some sounds, i can be proud of… since the first time i’ve been trying to play my fathers piano. Later i’ve got used to computers, it really did not take a long time to find a way to make some noise even there (on Commodore 64 with Future Composer, as i was 9-10). As the hardware evolved, i had more and more possibilities, but the requirements where growing as well. Therefore i was begging my brother to help me out (he’s the best programmer i know, and he used to be that even as a child: strange guy). He helped me, wrote me my first synth (i was 15 at that time). Since then we founded the software company WWAYM, and i started to release my music, because i’m not that shy anymore and i feel, i reached the level, where i dont feel cheesy what i’m doing. Maybe there is a chance, that somebody, who’s not the same person as me may like my stuff.
In the last few years i’ve started performing my live act, which is a hybrid DJ and live set, done with Ableton Live and a few plug-ins and lots of controllers (i require lots of knobs…). I try to rearrange the tracks from the artists i like live, and even try to mix elements from my music into the mix (and even my own tracks, and tracks of my own tracks).
I collected vinyls for years, liked to play them, but this means lot more work, and at the same time lot more fun to me (DJ-ing feels boring after this). I dont know, how much the audience is enjoying it, coz i simply have no time (and guts) to look at them while i play… my friends like it, but who can trust his friends in such questions… the most i can do is to hope, you’ll enjoy it as much as i enjoy playing it.
That was a top show 😀 9b0 has got some serious skills – if you didn’t catch it live, here is the archive – well worth the DL!
