1. How did you approach into electronic music?
It started when I was around 8-10 years, my sister usually play records or tapes from the clubs that she usually go, like BARRACA. I guess that all start in that moment, I still having a lot of records from my sister, also from my father.
2. What were the first records you bought and the first artists who have marked your childhood?

3. What was the first club you’ve played?
LE CLUB, VALENCIA, SPAIN.
4. With which instruments did you start producing music and how it made your study today?
I started just with a laptop, testing cutting, re-editing tracks to see how it works, after 6 years on the studio has change a little bit. Actually I have, motu 828 mkIII, adam a5x, microkorg, maschine, uc33, ef256 and starting to get a modular and analog machines, actually I got a modular synth Autobot, with 303, oscilators etc etc……. I like play with the machines and see what it happens, always good things, on my next vinyl release called MODULATION you can check what I am talking about. : )

About LC SERIES, is a brand new vinyl label, also looking forward in what I can do more, and that’s the point. The first reference was out last month, and we reach top 23 on decks, top 41 on juno, so really proud of this. About support/played/charted people like Truncate, Oliver Deutschman, Rebeckah, Alan Fitzpatrick or Tommy Fourseven is people that has played the vinyl a lot, I have videos and is really impressive when you see the reaction of the people dancing my first vinyl.
6. What are the characteristics of LC SERIES?
LC SERIES is just my point of view about music, that not means that it must be strictly techno, could be more acid, more dub, but it’s me.
I only release personal tracks plus remixes, first release was with my friends of ATTEMPORAL and MISS SUNSHINE, the result was amazing.
On the second release, out at the end of march 2013, I had a special collaborations, LC SERIES 02 is coming with 1 original plus 2 remixes, by: TRUNCATE and SAMULI KEMPPI.
LC SERIES is my identity, who I am.
7. There’s a track that you prefer among all the ones you’ve made?
I have a special love to MODULATION, but honestly I can not choose just one, LR6 is also very important for me is my first vinyl release, also tracks that I released years ago like ALL FALLS DOWN…… some track get a lot of part me.
8. What’s in the bag records of Liss C?
