iEN: Hey Gregori, thank you for your time allowing us to chat a bit. How are things going on your end?
Gregori: Hi iEnlive, and first of all thank you for the invitation. Everything is going well, as I have a lot of upcoming projects, and the Summer tour has started the best way.
iEN: What does 2011 have in store for Gregori Klosman?
Gregori: More original tracks (solo and collaborations) and more international gigs. You will also be able to see video reviews/documentory of my gigs, in order to follow me closer.
iEN: Low Battery: the biggest track out on Chuckie’s Dirty Dutch Vol. 4, hard Electro House track bringing an overall fantastic sound. How was this track specifically special?
Gregori: For this track I wanted to use a different style : Progressive & Dutch Sound. The idea was to build a strong drums/bass duo and put over a crazy lead, but nothing too easy. And I think I found the perfect match. The break uses more epic/trancy synths – really powerful in festival sets. I’m proud of “Low Battery”. I think it was the beginnning of a new sound for me, more proggy.
iEN: Do you have a prime goal for this year? Beyond that, for your future?
Gregori: I have many goals for this year. One is to play at Sensation haha. Most important I need to go forward and to aim the next level. Also I am working on a vocal track. And I really hope people and fans will love this one. For the future, I would love to play more in the U.S.A., but also in Asia.
iEN: Do you have any long-term compilations planned that we can expect to see soon?
Gregori: For now I keep focused on single releases. Maybe one day, but not for now. Anyway it’s still in my mind.
iEN: If you were to acknowledge another DJ/Producer’s work and enjoy their creations, who would it be?
Gregori: Fedde Le Grand or Axwell, as they keep producing club tracks with their own touch. it’s always efficient on a dancefloor and they always try to be new. And of course Daft Punk, Bob Sinclar, David Guetta, because if I’m here today it’s because of them.
iEN: When you finally get to be home in the Paris, what it is the best part at being at home for you?
Gregori: Chilling with my friends, watching a movie, and basically doing nothing lol. It’s not happening every day as even at home I keep working hard.
iEN: Is there any Producer/DJ that you aspire to collaborate with?
Gregori: I would love to collaborate with big names: Fedde, Ax, or even newcomers such as Hardwell or Alesso.
iEN: You and Chuckie have hit it big with the same mindset of Dirty Dutch music, and your tracks and music clearly reflect that. “Mutfakta” was a massive Dirty Dutch release, tell us a bit about the track and how it became such a great banger!
Gregori: Chuckie and I are good friends now and we wanted to produce a phat sound together. After a couple of weeks in the studio “Mutfakta” was born. I tried the track at Technoparade, Paris in front of thousands of people. It was a smash. Chuckie and I were really happy with the final result. I think people sometimes need nasty beats and basslines!!
iEN: You recently released “Bounce” with the one and only Tristan Garner, as well as two great remixes of David Guetta’s single “Where Them Girls At” and Avicii’s “Sweet Dreams.” Both sound absolutely great. What made these tracks stand out?
Gregori: I don’t really know, but I would say whatever strong is a drop, I love melodic breaks. For me House music is done like this. Breakdowns are all about dreaming, flying and frustration. The drop, on the other hand, has to be phat, unpredictable and loud. That’s what I’m trying to put into my music.
iEN: You recently launched your new monthly podcast “Klosmania,” and even from the first episode, you played some outstanding tracks and custom remixes and we look to see more of them in future episodes. Tell us a bit about how it got started, and what we should look for in the time coming.
Gregori: I already had a monthly radio show, but now it’s available on iTunes as a podcast. It was important for me to provide people different ways of getting that podcast. I always try to include personal edits and all the tracks I play the most in clubs. Stay tuned ;)
iEN: Tell us one thing – do you Live the Mix?!
Gregori: Hell yeah!!! It’s obvious when you see me playing live. You can’t even talk to me. Everything is linked: the people, the music, the club and me. Come see me one day you’ll understand what I mean ;)
iEN: Gregori, thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to talk to us, we look forward to your future releases and your upcoming live shows!
