L 33 – Interview – Karate LP (Eatbrain)

by | Jun 11, 2016 | Spotlight, Tunes

I had the opportunity to have a chat with one of my favorite producers. Dayan Kutsarov aka L 33 has been taking the DnB world by storm. With his signature neuro style that has caught the attention of the entire DnB world. L 33’s tunes have a energy to them like I have never felt before. I will be featuring tunes from the fresh released Karate LP during this interview! Out now on the mighty Eatbrain.

Stu: Introduce yourself and tell us a bit of the history behind L 33:

L 33: My name is Dayan also known as L 33 and I’ve been producing music for around 11 years now. Got hooked up with drum and bass 6-7 years ago and instantly felt in love.

Stu: Where did you get your name from?

L 33: Its actually an old nickname. Used to play quite a lot of electronic games when I was a bit younger.

Stu: Who is your favorite non-dnb artist, and or non DNB music?

L 33: To be honest I love every kind of music. When a certain track is good it’s good, you cant argue with that. But definitely can’t choose a favorite one.

Stu: What was your first experience with Drum and Bass like?

L 33: I remember I heard some Spor and Ill Skillz tracks many years ago. I didn’t even realize what I was listening to but it was my thing. I knew it. After some time I rediscovered the genre again and as I said – “I was hooked”

Stu: Tell us about your new Karate EP and the inspiration behind this album?

L 33: The idea of the album was to make 15 dancefloor tracks. No filling stuff. Just straight fire in your neck. I really loved what my good friends State of Mind did with Eat the Rich. And I thought – “That’s it, That’s an album!”. You can dance from the beginning to the end of it.
That’s what I would like to do when I start writing mine.

Stu: How do you like working for one of the fastest rising labels in the DNB game, the mighty Eatbrain?

L 33: It’s just amazing. Eatbrain is a one big family. It’s all based on trust and honesty, that’s what makes it special. I don’t have any kind of a contract with Eatbrain but I would still continue working with them to the end of my days. I’m extremely thankful to Jade. I think he is the man that pushed me, pushed my sound and shaped me as an artist. Also shouts to Eatbrain’s newest assistant addition – Dorry.

Stu: What is you’re biggest break / thing you are most thankful for to date in your music career?

L 33: It’s Definitely my Karate LP

Stu: If you could collab with any artist, of any genre / style, who would it be and why?

L 33: Really hard question but I’d say – Phace

Stu: Do you have any advise to the up and coming DNB producers out there?

L 33: You will get what you want if you work hard enough!

Stu: Tell us about the strangest / most embarrassing experience you’ve had before, during or after a show.

L 33: My first gig was a double show in Zagreb and Rijeka. I still remember it. The day after Zagreb we went to Rijeka. And I got chicken pox HAHA!. Getting back home the day after that was pain in the ass.

Stu: Where do you see / hope to see the sound of Drum and Bass evolving too in the next few years.

L 33: DnB is constantly evolving. Its just unstoppable. I’m really curious how it will sound in 5 years.

Stu: What’s next for L 33 what do you have lined up for the 2016 year?

L 33: More music, more shows, more music and more shows 🙂

I want to take the time to send a huge shout out to L 33 for taking the time to answer some interviews question during his unbelievably hectic schedule. If you haven’t had a chance to go grab the L 33 – Karate LP yet….. I highly suggest you do. In my opinion one of the albums of the year hands down!!! Start to finish dancefloor smashers!!!!
