Sync Forward Podcast 086 – Paul Rodner

sync forward podcast paul rodner

This week we welcome back our fellow countryman and friend of the label Paul Rodner that brings us a one hour mix filled with groove and energetic beats!

How did it all start?
It all started when I was 11 years old and first heard about electronic music through my older brother. It was love at first hearing. After that, me and my friends had garage parties until I finally had my first gig at Vaticano Club in Barcelos, one of the most emblematic clubs in Portugal.

What’s your gear in the studio?
In my studio I have the essential, my Macbook, Genelec monitors, Sennheiser Headphones, Akai midi and a Focusrite sound card. I also use a lot of Vsts like Massive, Arturia, Sylenth, among many others.

What’s behind your creative process?
I try to be loyal to my identity and always like to start with a rhythmic loop that will give flow to my track. That does not always mean I will produce the same genre, but I do try to stay within my musical line.

What’s your hometown music scene like?
I’m from the beautiful and historical Portuguese city of Barcelos. Unfortunetaly there is not much to choose, with the only clubs available being the Vaticano Club and Club 118. The last one is very successful nationwide. I already played there and the atmosphere is incredible!

Which labels are you currently working with?
At the moment, I’m not working for any label. I paused a bit to acquire knowledge, but I`ve worked for labels like Deeperfect Records by Stefano Noferini, Incorrect Music by Anthony Attalla, Bitten by 2000 and One and Sandy Huner, the last Ep reached the top 100 Tech House in Beatport with the tracks “Black magic” and “I Believe in My Dream”.

What are your future plans?
I don`t like to make plans for the future. I like to live day by day, but of course I dream of being a great reference worldwide. For this I have to show work and here I am for this, to fight for my dreams.

Sync Forward Podcast 085 – Hen Greca


The Sync Forward Podcasts are back this week with the Spanish artist Hen Greca, showcasing his DJ skills and promoting his forthcoming release on Sync Forward ‘Inside Girl‘.

How did it all start?
It all started around 10 years ago in the nightclubs of my native city of Valencia, Spain, where I learned to understand and appreciate underground culture as a clubber. It wasn’t long after that I started DJing.

What’s your gear in the studio?
At the moment I’m working with a Mac Mini and a MOTU UltraLite mk3 soundcard. I’ve also been using the PO 12 – Rhythm a lot lately.

What’s behind your creative process?
Well, I don’t think I currently have a single defined process, and if I’m honest I think the best option is just to practice as much as you can so you may have all the weapons available when faced with adversity.

What’s your hometown music scene like?
I would say here in Essen it’s very Techno orientated but you can also find very good parties house music or minimal.

Which labels are you currently working with?
Little Helpers.

What are your future plans?
Tomorrow I will get up early, will open Ableton and start making music. Those are my only immediate and future goals!
