DeeperSoul Interview - Abicah Soul



Abicah Soul a.k.a. DJ Stax is on a roll at the momment. His productions and remixes on labels like Objektivity, Waako, Moods&Grooves, Jellybean Soul, Eargasmic and Symple Sound have created a solid legion of fans and definitely made him one of most respected artists in the house music scene. Let’s try to know a little more about him.

Could you tell us how you got into djing / producing and about your early career?
It started in circa 1983 for me as a dj. I started my kraft in producing in 85/86, myself and Glenn Underground...
What’s your music background? Which artists have influenced you the most?
Soul, Afrobeat, Jazz... just good music. Influences come from Gil Scott-Heron, Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, Lonnie Liston Smith, Mandrill, Chick Corea; the list goes on and on.
Nowadays we see more and more deep/soulful house producers incorporating techy elements in their tracks. What do you think about this new musical direction?
In fact, I love it. You know, music is a feeling so its about being creative, you still can be open to different genre and give and edge and still have soul.
We also see Electro and 80’s sound influencing many House productions. Do you think that, in order to move on in house music, producers have to always look back?
No, not at all. House will be here forever; the market changes but seems to keep a float.
You have your own record label, Abicah Soul Records. What’s the concept behind it? Do you have any specific target?
No, just good music. But I plan to get a little experimental so stay tuned!
We know you have an album ready to be released. Can you disclose some information about it?
It wil be hot, that’s all I got to say! Can’t leak anything but I hope the masses enjoy it. Well, I will say I got some hitters on it...
Legal name: Marcel Davis
Fav. artists at the moment: Deetron, Osunlade, Telepopmusik, Ane Brun, myself(lol)
Fav. songs at the moment: too many to be mentioned.
Your own favourite production: right now a Seu Jorge remix called Cotidiano; it’s brazilian hooooooot.
Your own favourite remix: I like well my remix of “noize” by U.P.Z.. This dope record will be out on objektivity next month.
