Sync Forward Podcast 086 – 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.
