BACK TO THE BASIC #8
sound producer FERNANDO POO (Berlin)
It´s not easy to say exactly who Fernando is…
In fact, were not even sure thats his real name!!!
Everything we know about him is confusing, because none of us know who he is or where he is for that matter.
We run into him in teknivals or an e-mail comes in that´s about him!
He doesn´t talk a lot about himself, and when he does, you never know if he´s taking the p**s or not. One thing we know for sure is that he´s a man from the East. From some ex- Soviet town, maybe in Cecenia or further South. He says the name of the place is Opachichi. BUt he has grown up in Spain, somewhere in the south…
What else do we know?
He´s about 30, got (he says) a degree in physics (or maybe maths).
He´s an electro-head, a programmer, and he collects analog synths.
He lives in an old Russian army truck thats pretty damned cool inside, or better say he was living because he burned up few months ago before he decide to disappear…but this is an other story!!!
It seems that hes got some house in the South of Spain. Some old storeroom or something by the sea, overlooking Morocco.
For few years he lived by selling or swapping old Russian army stuff for western European electronic gear which he then touts back in Russia, and making some “unspecified business” in Morocco.
In any case, few summer ago at Cektek, one of our guys meet him and told him about our label project (JopRec). A few months later all this gear started arriving, tracks and sketches for the CD cover and stuff.
We thought the music was cool so we decided to produce it.
If you wanna catch a live performance you have to hit lucky at the right party. Well do our best to try and let you know what the dudes up to………
