Kaap De Goede Hoop Q&A

Q&A with Kaap De Goede Hoop

Kaap de Goede Hoop Promo Pic

On the back of Kaap De Goede Hoop (roughly translated as “Keep the Good Hope”) new release on Spf Samplers “Deep Minimal Sylenth1 Presets”,  we decided to get a further insight to see what makes the boys tick.

Q: When creating a track, do you prefer to use loops or single hits?

A: Both… But at right now we mostly use loops. Out of the loops we cut the elements that we like. Most of the time that’ll be 1 or maybe 2 elements. The loops help us to hear a particular sound in a context, sometimes it’s harder to hear the potential in a single shot.

The usage of a loop is more for inspiration for when we start a track. And once we have the idea down, then we’ll end up replacing the loop with single shots.

Q: What process do you go through when making a track? Do you start with the drums or synth sounds?

A: No particular order… what happens, happens. Just try to keep that “chemical reaction” of inspiration. So when you make a sound, you already get inspired for the next sound. In that case you always know what to do and don’t get stuck. And if you do get stuck…. it’s probably the wake up call to arrange your track. And if you still get stuck, go drastic. There’s a reason why there’s a “save as…” option in your daw.

Q: Do you use analogue or digital software, or a mix of both? Do you feel analogue makes a difference, and why?

A: We use both, everything has it’s purpose in the studio. When we have the feeling to use the Roland Space Echo 301, then we will. If a software delay can also do the trick, then why bother? The analogue stuff we have are quite characteristic, so we know when and why to use them. Sometimes people are asking us how to get that really old school kind of sound. What VST’s we use or how to EQ/compress. The only thing we say is : buy an Akai S950. Everything you put in there will get out straight old school, there’s a reason for that, probably your favorite artist with that old school sound has used an akai s950. Or maybe an MPC. If you want to have the sound of that age, go look for the machines of that age. In that way you’ll get ‘that’ sound.

So yeah, analogue makes a difference with digital. But everything has it’s sound. And you won’t get rid of it’s sound. If you want a moog kinda bassline, stop trying to do that on a korg. You probably will get close, but it won’t be “it”

Q: If you could have any piece of music equipment what would it be and why?

A: A nice polyphonic analogue synth, something like the Korg Mono/Poly. Cause we don’t have any yet!

Q: How would you describe your style?

A: Conscious produced

Q: Do you have any release coming up? what labels? what style?

A: Early 2013 there’ll be 2 releases coming up. A release on GEM Records, the imprint of Secret Cinema. And a release on Chameleon Recordings, the imprint of Steve Ward. The styles of the Ep’s are mostly Tech-House

To us the GEM release has a special track. It’s a analogue/digital jam we did with 2 other guys. It’s a track of 13 minutes and everything is improvised. It’s really edgy and far away from perfect as in production, but it’s alive! We know other people do the same in Ableton, but imagine you only have a 2 track left when you’ve recorded it. Editing is not really an option anymore.


The Chameleon EP is more like a crafted one. We spent quite some time on the sound of the tracks and that’s what we also like to do. A mix down can tell a story of it’s own in our opinion. Though there is 1 track on the EP that’s also an analogue jam! It’s more of an Electronica track and really dubby!


 

Q: How did you get started in making music?

A: Bobby started pretty early. In his teens he got hit by Hardstyle music. A typical dutch music style that’s spreading over the world right now. After listening some CD’s in his teens, he came to a point he wanted to create that kinda music on it’s own. As the years passed by his taste in music developed and changed. Now he’s more interested in the down tempo Detroit sound (J Dilla, Motown, etc.) and the dubby Berlin sound (Maurizio, Wax, etc.).

Robbert started with playing the guitar on an age of 8. 7 years later he wanted to start a band, but nobody near him was making music or playing an instrument, so he started out producing music. It was mostly Breakbeat/Triphop kinda music. Musical taste and vision developed and now he’s more into the dancefloor and ambient stuff.

Q: where did your inspiration come for the pack ? was there a certain direction you where going in with it?

A: It was the challenge to get really deep into the Sylenth1. Most of the sounds we’ve heard of the synth were pretty basic in our opinion. We thought there must be a bigger palette of sounds in that thing. And yes there is more then you hear lately. Because of this preset pack we know 99% how the Sylenth works.

The discovery of the sylenth1 came with a lot of sounds. Like you can make some really modular inspired sounds, though the synth doesn’t really look like a modular synth. Next to that we thought it would be fun to help out the starting producers a bit by making certain popular sounds of nowadays. Like the Crosstown rebels kinda basslines or the Kompakt kinda pads. Also we made some sounds that are really basic but nice to have like the ‘Shower’-preset. It’s a basic decaying white noise, but you can still tweak a lot on it. So you don’t have to find the best white noise out of all the other sample packs.

Q: If you could of made any track through out time what track would it be and why?

A: No idea actually…. but let’s go with Brian Eno – Music for Airports 1/1 for now. It’s a beautiful piece of music. It really represents a lot of feelings. It almost seems that the music adepts to your feelings at that specific moment. That might be the true power of the tune.

Q: You have used Sylenth1 to design this preset pack, why did you choice this synth? and is there any other synths you like to use?

A: It was a good challenge to get real deep into this synthesizer. It’s a really good tool, but it has it’s limits. A pretty basic synth with a lot of potential to good sounds. If the sylenth is too limited then we use the U-HE Z3bra. A real beast!!

Q: When making music do you have any special rituals ? Do you need any special drinks or food ?

A: A nice cup of tea and Facebook unfortunately.

Q: And finally on a lighter note, if you could be any animals which one would you be and why?

A: A dik-dik… woman love dik-dik’s.

LOL And before anyone gets any ideas this is a dik dik.
