Stream: Beatrice Dillon and Call Super – Inkjet / Fluo (Snippets)
Speaking about Beatrice Dillon, how did your collaboration on your recent EP come about?
We’re just friends and I think both have a mutual respect. The relationship I have with Objekt is rooted in every aspect of our lives, including our work. But aside from him there’s no one else that I’ve had a working relationship with. And I thought Beatrice is someone that could be interesting to work with. She felt the same way and we made some work together. (laughs)
How was the writing process of that EP like?
She began one track, I began the other, and then it was a back and forth. I think the writing process was slightly hijacked when after the first track was almost finished Hessle Audio said they liked it, and then suddenly we were like „Ok, if we do something with it we need another track, that has to be dancefloor/club-focused in some way”, because the label is a club label. So suddenly there were these terms around what we were doing. And I think if we were to work again in the future I would like to work outside of those terms. I’m not so interested in having this fixed endpoint in mind.
And which one of the tracks was finished first?
The A-side, „Inkjet“. I mean, it’s one of the most functional things I’ve ever made. Which, I don’t know, surprised me.
Could you also picture yourself spending actual studio time together when you’re making music with someone?
I can picture it, but in that picture, I think I look very uncomfortable and sad. (laughs) Because I like the lonely aspect of this kind of work. In a sense, I like DJing because I like feeling alone in a club. I grew up in a very kind of lonely world, in a way. And I think it’s what makes me feel comfortable, just being lost on your own. And not only if there’s someone there do you have to feel comfortable together. But there is this pressure on the time. I can imagine very quickly you start thinking „Well, what kind of track is this?“ And I’m not really interested in answering those kind of questions. I like to operate in a place of ambiguity. And that’s quite difficult with two people.
