If you aren’t already aware, (which you should be) next weekend hosts a very special event that will go down in dance music history. Renaissance 20th Anniversary will be held at the spectacular and ultra indulgent St. Georges Hall in Liverpool. The monumental and historic building boasts an exquisite interior of chandeliers, marble flooring and antique furnishings, and for one night only these elegant surroundings will be woken from their historic slumber to the sound of the crem della crem of world class DJ’s. Hernan Cattaneo, Henry Saiz, Danny Howells, Jemmy and Ghosting Season are the kings of the night, bringing you the hidden treasures of dance music.
We chat to Ghosting Season, a very intriguing duo who deliver the eeriest yet most seductive form of ambient techno. Tom and Gavin will be playing live in the Concert room on the 15th September and I have a feeling their music will sound even more beautiful and edgy as it travels round the circular walls of the very exciting venue.
St George’s Hall is a pretty extravagant venue, how does it feel being apart of something so huge and unique?
It feels amazing to be part of something this big- the venue has such a fantastic history, and to be on a line up that boasts some of dance music’s best and brightest is absolutely brilliant! We love to play in places that are a bit different too, so playing in St. George’s will be something very special!
What do you enjoy most about playing live?
We enjoy everything about it! We especially love it when the crowd are reacting positively to what you do – even if its just a nod of the head, or really going for it on the dancefloor, being able to reach people by playing your tunes is just incredible.
Who would you say your biggest influences are when you’re making a new track or album?
To be honest, it changes all the time! We’re always investigating music, whether it’s old or new, rock or dance, metal or pop – we always have an ear for a nice melody or an interesting sound, so really want to explore different ways of making electronic music by listening to as much as possible!
How do you think/want/would hope people feel when they listen to your music?
I think as long as people get something out of it, and it makes a difference to them, however small, then that’s all we can wish for really!
Where do you want to take Ghosting Season? Do you want to stick to this cool eerie ambient techno vibe that you have going on, or you looking to incorporating a few different things.. Maybe a heavier techno beat or more of a dance music feel?
Ghosting Season is always evolving, and some of the newer stuff we’re currently working on definitely has more of a dance music vibe to it, but that’s not to say we’ll suddenly ditch all the ambient eerieness that makes us what we are!
Any hints of any releases to come or any surprises or ideas up your sleeves that yours just itching to tell someone?
Let’s just put it this way… we’re already back in the studio
Thank you so much Ghosting Season for chatting to us, we look forward to seeing you play live next weekend!
