Moxie- Interview for ID Mag

Since she started DJ'ing in her early teens, Alice Moxom, AKA Moxie, has been making a name for herself on the London scene, with any one set throwing up the best in house, disco, Detroit techno, dubstep and grime.

Last year, not only did Moxie graduate from her Surface Design degree at London College of Communication, she was also invited to play at the legendary Dubstep night DMZ alongside Mala and Loefah and Coki. Moxie has DJ'd in LA, NY and across Europe, as well as at Glastonbury and Outlook Festival, while also taking to the radio airwaves on Rinse FM, Kiss and Resonance. When she's not behind the decks, you can find Moxie running the Deviation club night or designing in her studio. i-D tracked the lady down to find out who she's into, how she got into DJ'ing and what she has for i-D's exclusive Moxie Mix, listen here.
What have you been up to recently? I've just been working on a few mixes and on my art. Music and art have always been the two things that have made me happy in life. Once my website is up and running it will give people a clearer idea about my styles. I also run a night called Deviation along with BBC Radio 1 DJ Benji B and have been working on some great events for this year, unfortunately I can't give too much away so you'll have to wait and see! 
How did you get into music and when did you start DJ'ing? I've always been into music, from a really young age, my parents would always have music playing around the house, a lot of Blues, Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan. When I was at school I starting going to an after school DJ workshop and that was my introduction. At first I didn't take it too seriously but it made me want to get out there and go record shopping. Since then I've been collecting vinyl and have spent a lot of tine in my room practising! Luckily it's all paid off.  
What has been your favourite place to DJ? I'd have to say Plastic People is my favourite club to play at and to go to, I love getting lost in the darkness, it's as though I'm back in my bedroom DJ'ing on my own. And then for clubnights it would have to be Deviation as I know exactly what the crowd likes, and then of course playing at the legendary dubstep night DMZ was great as the guys just let me get on and do my own thing.
Who are your favourite producers at the moment? Nicolas Jaar - he's a 21-year old producer and DJ from New York and has released on a record label called Wolf & Lamb. His stuff is really soulful and has a lot of depth to it. Julio Bashmore is another producer and DJ I'm into, he's from Bristol and I recently caught him playing at Fabric. James Blake is another, who just has an incredible amount of soul in his productions, I was always a fan of his beats; when I heard 'Limit To Your Love' I had no idea he could sing and since then I've been hooked. Boddika/Instra:Mental is one of my favourite producers, signed to a label called Swamp 8. There is a tune by him called 'When I Dip' and ever since I heard it, it has been one of my favourite tunes to play in the club, it's so much fun to mix. 
What are we likely to hear in a Moxie mix? A bit of everything really, I like to mix it up and play across a few different genres. You could hear anything from House to Grime. My mix for i-D is a blend of old and new tunes that I really like at the moment, the playlist includes tunes from Prince right up to Gucci Mane.
What are the five tunes you currently have on rotation? 
1. Kanye West - Devil In A New Dress Ft Rick Ross
2. Omar S - Set It Up
3. Frankie Knuckles- Baby Wants To Ride
4. Teedra Moses - Be Your Girl
5. BeyoncĂ© - Jollyrancher

RackNRuin Interview for Beatport

His origins in drum and bass anchor RacknRuin (aka Matt Scott) to sub-fluttering productions, but to say that he’s strictly a drum and bass producer would be a mistake. Bouncing from house to breaks to dubstep, RacknRuin’s range is part of what sets the project apart.
On “Synthetic Heart” EP, RacknRuin’s most recent release, his influences emerge in the form of low, sub-bass basslines that mingle with classic electronic keys or reminiscing drum breaks. Blending the modern with the nostalgic in the most innovative of formations, RacknRuin is on a tear. Keep reading to learn more. 
Can you tell us a little about your background? Where did you grow up, and where are you based now?
I was brought up in North London and also lived in New York for a couple of years. I am now based in North London; London is definitely my home.
How did you get started making music?
I was always into music when I was young, and I bought some cheap decks when I was 14. This got me addicted to vinyl and then onto producing at 16.
How would you describe the music that you make?
I try to make all different types of styles, but I guess it’s bass music with a jungle/electro flavor.
When you perform, what’s your preferred DJ setup?
I play with Serato, preferably with CDJs—the new Pioneer CDJ 2000s are amazing, as are the new Pioneer DJM Mixers.
Did you have any mentors when you were starting out? Who helped you get established?
A couple of friends from school really helped me get into production. My mate Alfy who is part of house duo Solarity [a] showed me the basics of Logic. At the time I was using Fruity Loops, then through learning from him I got the confidence to start on Logic. Also my mates from ATG (a London music/graffiti crew) have helped me along the way, as well as my manager and booking agents.
When did you first feel that you had finally discovered your own
I think when I stopped concentrating on making just one type of music, which at the time was drum & bass. I was a DnB and jungle DJ and wanted to recreate what I loved playing out. But when I decided to try new sounds and beat patterns, etc., I really began to develop my own sound.
How do you explain your music to your family members?
My dad was a music journalist so he’s pretty good at critiquing music! They know what I do as they heard it booming from my bedroom from the age of 14! They just call it drum and bass or disco music; my brother used to call it “pots and pans” music!
Are you the type of musician who knows what kind of track you want to write before you sit down to make it, or do you create music more from a process of experimentation, trial and error?
It all depends. If I’m working on a certain project (i.e. a vocal track) I will have an idea of what I want the final product to be. If I’m doing something more experimental, or just playing with ideas, it will be more trial and error.
When you sit down to make a track, what’s the first thing you typically do? How long does a track typically take you to make?
Again, it depends now; as I’m very busy with various projects and remix work, I always have a goal. So I will work on the track I have to get done that day! Normally a track will take between three and four days to complete.
Where do you record?
At the moment I have a home studio with a great setup and a lovely view from the top of the house, so I’m really happy.
Do you currently have a favorite piece of gear or software?
Softsynth-wise, I really like Circle, FM8 and Massive. I also love my Dynaudio monitors.
Are you a morning person or night owl?
Morning for production, definitely. Night time is for playing out or sleeping.
Which record do you wish you had made?
Michael Jackson, “Off The Wall.”
If a cybernetic organism sent from the future was headed for your
home hell-bent on your termination, which *one* record would you
take with you before you headed to your heavily armed military
Any Bob Marley Record.
When you’re not listening to electronic music, what do you listen to?
Everything. I like all types of music. At the moment, mainly reggae.
When you’re not making or playing music, what’s your preferred
I love watching films with my girlfriend and playing football.
If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing with your life?
Probably living and working in Spain, as I speak Spanish and love the country, culture and people.
Tell us about your upcoming gigs and releases…
My latest 2 EPs, “Territory” and “Synthetic Heart” are out now. The “Soundclash Remix” EP will be out in mid-Februaury on Black Butter Records. And various remixes and releases are coming throughout this year. I am touring all over the UK at the moment and will be in the states in April and hopefully again later in the summer. I will be playing at most of the UK festivals as well.
