Can you remember the toys and games that you used to play with when you were 4 years old? Maybe you can recall driving your parents crazy with the first Casio keyboard that Santa brought you? Even if you can remember, the answer is probably not going to be classic Moog analog synthesizers. For Stephan Bodzin however, this was reality.

Thanks to his father being an experimental musician, Stephan grew up on a sonic diet of some of the tastiest analog hardware ever, and instantly fell in love with the warmth and personality of the Moog.

“It’s totally different from any other synth, it's just more alive, it’s more powerful, it’s breathing, it has soul.”

This is also a rather good description of Bodzin’s music in general, a definition of his style and how it distinguishes him from others inside the techno genre. All of Bodzin’s tracks have a palpable sense of emotion, you can feel the masterfully crafted synths are a labour of love, bursting with character.

We’re obviously not comparing DRC to a Moog (well, maybe just a little bit!) but that warm, sensuous richness that you only get from analog gear is the inspiration and driving force behind the birth and development of DRC today.

How to make the bass sound for Jamiroquai 'Carla' in DRC...

Published on 16 Jul 2018

Music, at its core, is pure emotion. Whilst modern music theory can offer an understanding of how certain feelings are invoked, music has been a powerful and important form of expression, centuries before Pythagorus even suggested the science of scales. As a creative outlet, writing a song or piece of music can provide a medium in which to document one’s thoughts, providing cathartic and therapeutic relief to an emotionally overwhelmed brain.This week’s track is one such outpouring of love, from Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay to his daughter, with the eponymous track ‘Carla’ from the band’s 2017 album ‘Automation’. The final track on the album sees Kay candidly open up about the massive positive effects experienced from fatherhood.This is still a Jamiroquai track though, proving that heartfelt love-songs aren’t necessarily restricted to just ballads; there’s more than enough room for a classic Jamiroquai funky bass line too.As mentioned in the video, this track was a suggestion from the community, thank you to everyone who has got in touch with ideas for future episodes - feel free to keep them coming! This is also a testament to the benefits of sharing and discovering new music; it’s a great feeling when you see someone enjoy an album as much as you do. As a team we’ve also had a fair few ‘I can’t believe you’ve never heard of this album!’ moments.Click here to download the Ableton Live projectFor the power of new experiences,Team Imaginando...
