Minimal Techno Mastermind Boris BrejchaPumps Out The Bass With ADAM S3H MonitorsADAM Users
An ADAM Audio user since 2012, techno producer Boris Brejcha’s fame on the minimal techno scene was kindled by genre classics like 2007’s “Lost Memory”.
Boris Brejcha has upgraded his monitoring system to a new set of ADAM S3H midfield monitors, replacing his venerable and much-loved S3X-H. In our exclusive video interview, Boris offered insights into his approach to producing some of the best techno around.
Dark and futuristic, Boris’s workspace is completely focussed on the producer and his sound. No lava lamps or ‘shabby chic’ exposed brickwork here. Just techno. His studio removes visual clutter and allows him to hone in on the track, sound or sample he’s working with. “I like to create every day something new,” he says. “That’s what I do every day in my studio. Sit almost like 7, 8 hours in the studio, totally alone and jamming around and exploring new sounds and new ways to express myself into music.”
“That’s what I do every day in my studio. Sit almost like 7, 8 hours in the studio, […] exploring new sounds and new ways to express myself into music.”
His first pair of ADAM Audio speakers were a revelation, he remembers. Determined to take a “next big step” in the quality of his monitoring, he headed to a pro audio retailer and previewed a vast range of speakers, switching through each with a remote control. “And there was this ‘click’ when I changed the button to ADAM Audio,” he remembers. “For me it was super-intense. The music was coming out this box like super-clear with a lot of bass and super-nice high … And since then 5 or 6 years I am working with ADAM Audio, and for me it makes sense.”
But the clinical look to his studio and his effortlessly clean, transparent sound belie a deep sensitivity and emotionality at work. “If you produce music, you give something to your people from your heart, how you feel and how your life is going,” Boris explains. “You tell them a story. Like a little piece of the story of your life.” This idea also powered his most recent full-length production, 22, an eclectic fusion of several genres that Boris regards as his masterpiece. Boris has since founded his own Fckng Serious label, a move sure to provide the basis for many successful future releases.
