For Introduction 132 we are joined by the Osnabrück-based DJ & producer duo Stil & Bense, who are notorious for their eclectic and dancefloor-oriented sound. With an impressive number of releases on some of the most reknown labels in the scene under their belt, they're hard to miss yet never fail to surprise with their music.
"Creative people will always be creative and know how to get into the state of flow where everything else disappears. No matter under which circumstances. But we also think it‘s important to have a creative place of your own. A place where you feel comfortable, a place with good sound. A place that helps you connect to the flow."
"Oh, that’s easy. What was the question again?"
"It‘s a global scene, an international movement. Despite the fact that it has it‘s own problems, the bottom line for us still is that it is a political movement in which everybody‘s equal, it‘s about the music, the beat, dancing together."
"We‘re actually huge fans of the (more or less naive) idea of „l’art pour l‘art“. Art doesn’t need a purpose, it‘s just something we can‘t live without :) But of course, music lets people escape from the real world and we often get feedback that our music helps people get through the day (or through the night). If that is the purpose of our music, that‘s fine with us."
"If I could in any way contact my 16 year old self we’d have a bunch of more serious issues to discuss than that ;)"
"More diversity, less white male producing/DJ Duos :) Every one of us has to play a part in this. Support women in audio for instance, make them more visible. Organizers, hosts & venues need to create more diverse line-ups. Also: more honesty, awareness, less ghost producing."
