Mihail P [Distant Worlds, Vinica Macedonia]  - What comes after universe no.13

This month's WCAU Mixcast No.13 arrives from Mihail P, one of the young leading names in contemporary experimental techno in Macedonia.

Mihail Petrovski grew up in Vinica, a town in the eastern region of Macedonia. His latest music production "Multiverse EP" on the label Distant World from London is a beautiful soulful techno extravaganza for the universe-city.

"If I can't dance I don't want to be part of your revolution. Those who do not move do not notice their chains" Mihail P DWT003

Last but not least, we hope you enjoying to read the interview and listening to his mix. Turn up, enjoy and feel free to comment.

What is music for you? A bunch of tailored frequencies made to mess around with your emotions.

Which was your first favourite Album? I remember, when my dad bought me for my 10th birthday an album of Eminem, I think the album was The Eminem Show, I stayed up late every night repeating the lyrics of every track of it until I finally memorized them all. I can recall those lyrics vividly still to this day.

Tell us how a city shaped your musical consciousness. Not much of a scene here in my town, but it was due to some seminal moments when guest dj's were doing their thing, that I actually found my love for electronic music. At that time, I was 14-15 years old. It was just after I started digging around trying to shape my own palette of sounds. What also inspired my musical consciousness was the industrial part of my town, some huge concrete buildings with some hidden mystery in it. I used to walk through them with my headphones on trying to figure out this new sounds in my head. Hahaha!

What would an evolution of electronic music look like? I'm not really sure about it. I always discover new musical creators which try to bring the electronic sound to a new level. Some of them are trying to capture the “everyday sounds” of our lives, many others are building their own circuits trying to emulate something different, I guess we will see/hear it when the time is right.

What comes after universe? An infinite number of other universes co-existing with each other, but I think we are far from reaching the requisite consciousness to understand the complexity of our own universe, not to talk about the infinite other.
