Beast from the millennium era – interview with Hydroxie

Updated: 1 November, 2015 Created: 5 September, 2015 By:Adalbert Category: Interviews
There are few ways to create good dark electro music. Frist way consist of creating a wicked and gloomy atmosphere, the second of concentrating on the club potential of the tracks. German project Hydroxie combines those two, but also adds many more. Their last album entitled “Seelenfresser” is an over 70 minutes long monster which doesn’t have any weaker moments. Pure dark electro filled with emotions of anger and desperation will satisfy every listener who misses more oldschool approach. No overproduction, no weak vocals covered by multitude of FX, just a pure authenticity and good songs that aren’t easy to forget because of  the great melodies. Give this band a chance, not only if you like Wynardtage, which is more known project of Kayfabe frm Hydroxie. It’s him who is the main person behind this band and agreed to tell us more about it.

Adalbert: Hello! Hydroxie is quite a new band, however some of the band members are already known to dark independent scene (especially Kayfabe LaNoise from Wynardtage). Can you tell us why you’ve decided to begin the new band and can you tell us something about line – up? Who is responsible for what?

I’ve listened to some of the latest records/bands of our genre, but they didn’t sound like something I would expect as a fan of this music style. So we tried to go some days back and bring out a more rough and authentic product

Hydroxie (Kayfabe): Hydroxie was founded  originally in 2004. At this time I’ve run several projects. Hydroxie had some smaller clubhits and contributions on different samplers. “A Fool” is one of the classic songs of that period. But after the huge success of the Wynardtage-song “Sterbehilfe” I decided to keep my full attention to Wynardtage. After the latest Wynardtage-releases “Sleepless in Heaven” and “Close II Death” (both no.1 in german alternative charts) I felt it’s time to start something new. So the very first Hydroxie CD was 10 years in the making. I reformed (like i prefer to call) our small legion of doom two years ago. After I have created the most instrumental versions of the songs I work together with Louis C. (also involved in a group named “La Magra”) and Andy Haze to find the right lyrics. Both guys are also involved to do some backing  vocals and sampling stuff. Finally we have our little dark dancing queen Styana and Vic G. who also recorded some sampling stuff at studio and give our concerts the special notes.

Your debut album seems to be very inspired – over an hour of good dark electro songs. It seems that this music just had to be born… Hydroxie is described as side project of Wynardtage, but I think it’s different – it reminds about older days of the genre because it’s lack of unnecessary over-production and it’s full of gloomy melodies …Simple yet very effective. Why have you chosen this direction?

I’ve listened to some of the latest records/bands of our genre, but they didn’t sound like something I would expect as a fan of this music style. So we tried to go some days back and bring out a more rough and authentic product. So many people said to us the hole album sounds like a beast from the millennium era. That’s exactly what we like to reach, because we are no fans of the modern era electro style which has lost the typicalcharacteristics of true dark electro.

One thong can be surely said about your debut album – very catchy melodies which give every song its character. “Seelenfresser”, “Hass”, “Skandal”, “Sterbenhilfe” and many others. What’s your recipe for a good dark electro composition? 

I love to produce catchy melodies. So I think that’s very exemplary for our songs. So I have often a good feel if a song could works or not. I think that’s a natural gift paired with years of experience by doing all this shit. But finally only the people in clubs can make good songs to real club hits.
