Inpetto: The Trust Of Brothers

Inpetto have turned their sound into one demanded by many, and it all comes down to the force of two brothers working together.

| by | Features, Interviews

German duo Inpetto have been making a big impact on the scene as of recently. A number of tracks have been released on Mixmash Records and with this, a lot of support has been built and their reputation enhanced as producers and DJs to watch out for. Their most recent track ‘U Got A Friend’ coming in as quite a success. Inpetto’s distinct style is what makes them so attractive, as well as their quality music, so if you happen to be at a major festival this year, you’ll likely get the chance to see the guys.

Taking things back to the scene way back in the late nineties, Inpetto formed two thirds of the group Fragma. Tell us a little about your time in the group and the huge success of ‘Toca’s Miracle’?

“Toca Me” was our first ever release, so you can imagine that its success was a bit surprising. In 1999 we just wanted to hold an own vinyl in our hands and without Facebook, rare Internet you barely got an idea of how a track worked out in the world. We heard that the record has been played a lot by Pete Tong and others at UKs biggest radio station BBC Radio 1, but the we got a phonecall from the label, that it will enter the UK Sales chart at number one. You can imagine how unreal this was. Followed by another Top 3 single, us two young guys started spinning around the globe coming from a small town in Germany. This was a really intense time.

Not mentioning the fact you are brothers! Is it difficult working together or do you both have a good working relationship, where you bounce off each other?

Nah its not difficult at all. Knowing each other for so long and working together since almost 20 years may make it easier to bring different ideas together to a complete work. Also we can trust each other in any way.

Musical tastes, where did you get your influences from to get involved in dance music or music as a greater whole?

The first steps into dance music was Stuff like Technotronic or 2 in a Room before we started listening to House, Rave and Breakbeat stuff like the early Prodigy stuff, Rollo or The Orb. MTV played a lot of this weird „animated“ or time-lapsed Techno Videos that time. I remember the first time we wanted to figure out how a track was produced was Snap – Rhythm Is A Dancer.

And over the years, you have garnered support from heavyweights such as Above & Beyond, David Guetta, Axwell and more. How does this encourage you to continue to produce, or is it just an added bonus to receive this support?

The main thing what encourages us to continue to produce is the fact that it is our main job, but having support from great and talented guys is of course a acknowledgement that we do our stuff right.

Over the last year or so you have been dropping major hits on Mixmash Records, with the last coming as ‘U Got A Friend’. What’s coming up in musical terms from Inpetto in the next few months?

Laidback Luke just premiered a new single we did together with Lauren Mason last Monday with will get a release in two weeks. Also we are working on three new singles simultaneously with great producers and vocalists. So it won´t be silent for the next months :)

Mixmash Records has also played a key role in supporting your music and you as artists. What is it like to work with a label such as Mixmash?

Mixmash is one of the labels which doesn´t throw 6 releases a week on the market and see which release works in the end. They work hard on every release which makes it a great label. We are in contact with the A&R a few times a week and get opinions/feedbacks on all of our ideas to get the best possible track done. This is how it should always work.

The next few months will also see you guys perform at festivals such as Tomorrowland. Do you still get that buzz when you go out in front of the crowd at a major festival?

Of course it is always exciting, sometimes scary, coming up on a stage and look into thousands of faces. But after pushing the start button the excitement turns into focus on giving people a good time… and having a good time :)

From the festival to a club, how do you change your sets or is it all depending on the crowd / set time you are playing?

Clubsets of course depend on the crowd, set-time and other DJs etc. We always show up in the club early to get an idea of the crowd and a feeling of what range of genres we´ll be able to play. That’s the main difference to a festival set, where people are expect us to play mainly our own stuff and a lot of bangers.

Last, but not least. What would you say your one piece of advice would be to an artist who is looking to make their mark on the scene?

Due to the affordability of the requirements for making music MANY people produce music and are ready to get discovered by the audience. It’s very hard to get a release or earn money out of your music. Record labels are overwhelmed with tracks. Keep that in mind!

Your music will only be discovered, if it contains a good idea. Your knowledge about producing and composing is nothing worth without any good ideas. And good ideas come along with fun! And that should be the main reason for you, to make music.
