David August interview for Future Disco

We can't wait for our next party at ministry of sound with David August. He is a young producer from Hamburg who's records we have been playing for months on end and no doubt any of you reading this would have heard. Couple that with the fact Kerri Chandler is in the main room and you start to have all the ingredients for an amazing night. You can see more about the event on Facebook but in the mean time check out our little interview from when we caught up with the man himself.

We know you make great house music and you will play for Future Disco at Ministry of Sound, does disco have any influence on your sound as your music seems to cross boundaries?

Disco might influence my sound in a way, that I try to produce music for the club, for the disco atmophere... It doesn't make me special, because nearly every house music producer has the  same thought. I have to say, that I kept hearing a lot of old disco classics of the 80s and 90s. Old good house music...call it disco if you want. This might also be the roots,which has inspired me a lot lately.

What’s big in your Dj box right now? I have a couple of unreleased stuff from buddies like Solomun, which are going to be released in future...bombs! and then I might have some other unreleased stuff from myself... ;)

What about your influences, was there a particular club or dj that had areal effect on your growing up? The diynamic club in hamburg "EGO" surely inspired me a lot...and  the track "Feuervogel" by Stimming & Solomun, which opened my eyes regarding house music. This was the decisive step.

You are based in Hamburg, most vistors tend to go to Berlin, if we were in hamburg for a day whats the top 3 things we should do? Absolutely go across to the "reeperbahn" (red light street), have some drinks in the "schanze" quarter, go to a club night at EGO and finally go to the fishmarket sunday in the morning.

Are you looking forward to playing ministry of sound and coming to London? Yes, I am! I was in london a couple of weeks ago...a smaller club, quite nice. But Ministry of Sound has still got a big name, I heard this word "ministry" at the age of 14 for the first time, so I am happy to have the pleasure to play there.
