One of London's biggest brands will be taking over Egg London on Saturday 24th January, as LWE put on a very special Mobilee showcase. Headlining will be main man and Egg favourite Rodriguez Jr. who recently sat down with LWE to discuss what he's currently loving and what lies ahead in 2015...
"With Mobilee crew returning to London in January, we decided to have a catch-up with Rodriguez Jr. Find out what he’s got planned for the forthcoming months, about his reaching back to his musical roots for inspiration, and how does he deal with the writer’s block.
Can you tell us a bit about your plans for the forthcoming 2015? Are there any new EPs or albums in the schedule?
I am currently finishing my forthcoming EP for Mobilee, which shall be released around March. There are also some remixes coming out soon: the first one I did for Miguel Migs on Defected, and another one for Stephan Bodzin on Systematic. I am also collecting ideas for an album. My last one ‘Bittersweet’ has been released three years ago already, so I feel the urge to spend more time in the studio and create new music with all the material I’ve collected while travelling. It’s been over five years of your adventure with the Mobilee team.
What are the best memories you have with the label?
That’s a lot of beautiful experiences, parties, travels. It’s amazing to see so many people coming to our parties and showcases for something that is beyond the music. That’s a state of mind. Or maybe life style. My best memories would be some of our showcases in Sonar or ADE...
You have been performing for years now, how has your music evolved since when you first began composing?
I feel like it’s getting much more mature and personal. I hope I have dealt with my early influences and managed to create my own sound: a blend of house, techno and electronica. It’s also much slower than it used to be back in the days. I recently discovered old live recordings from the late 90s, and most of my tracks exceed 140 bpm! It was pretty serious..."
