Seeing as we're all so tech-savvy over R$N we thought we'd have a go at one of these Twitter interviews... what a bloody nightmare!! Won't be doing that again in a hurry.
Anyway, here's the edited highlights from the gentleman that is Mr Will Saul
@willsaul (this is us directing a message to Will) Interview begins.... now!
@willsaul Hey Will, how's things. Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. Where are you and what you doing?
@ransomnoted (this is Will replying!) My pleasure. I'm at home looking after my flu ridden baby boy and his baby momma
@WillSaul Sorry to hear that! In pretty much the same boat! I know it sounds an obvious qstion but why Simple? It's far from that.
@ransomnoted :( Simple as a name was supposed to blueprint our intention to just release (what we felt was) good music, whatever the genre.
@WillSaul Sure so there was no particular blueprint that now sets it apart from Aus? I notice Simple has stopped at its 50th rlse
@ransomnoted Not really. I just approached people that I felt were making fresh electronic music at the time - @appleblim & @pearsonsound
@ransomnoted Simple is actually just about to re-launch after a years break with an EP from @djoctober with remixes by Legowelt #RSNview
@WillSaul @djoctober Wicked. I remember your first few releases - I still have the Walkner Hinternaus & Fink releases on vinyl.
@ransomnoted @djoctober wow that seems a long time ago :) Well actually it was a long time ago...ha ha!
@WillSaul @djoctober yeah almost 10 years ago!! So, will the new Simple release be 1151??
@ransomnoted @djoctober 1251 :)
@WillSaul Right, I can't keep up! Turning 2 yr W/e residency in Berlin. How do crowds differ btwn countries etc? Is Germany more receptive?
@ransomnoted Definitely a few years ago in Berlin but not so much now as Berlin has become such a clubbing w/e destination
@WillSaul 'Bass' music has mutated into many diff forms w/ Aus being at the vanguard of housier/techno end. Was this intentional?
@ransomnoted Simple started 3 years before Aus so at that time no. When I started Aus then I focused Simple more on house & techno.
@WillSaul @appleblim @pearsonsound Sure. It's interesting that it's bubbled through to housier events like @mulletover etc of late.
@ransomnoted Absolutely. When people from a different genre/background approach house with no preconceptions then you get soem fresh results
@WillSaul Sideshow (Fink) produces for both Simple & Aus. Please explain. Is it Fink's schizophrenia?
@ransomnoted I started Aus with Fink so Aus is now his one and only home for his Sideshow alter ego.
@WillSaul Cool. Makes sense now! Cats or Dogs?
@ransomnoted I love both but I think cats if I had to choose...
@WillSaul got to be cats bloody mindedness!
