No other imprint has been doing the underground justice quite like Diynamic. After all, they’ve been at it for a decade now, and that means 10 solid years of the collective challenging the status quo and thereby reshaping the scene into its current state. In celebration of its 10 years, label don Solomun and his stable of like-minded artists have been DIYing on the dancefloor at a select number of anniversary shows. Factory 93 managed to pin them down for one taking place in the warehouse district of Los Angeles this weekend, and we’re having trouble keeping our cool—because no one does it better than they do.

In anticipation of one of the most proper parties of the year, we wanted to take the time to stick a spotlight over the artists on deck for the imprint’s showcase. Get up close and personal with the Diynamic team before things get super intimate at Factory on Saturday.

Solomun

 

Hometown: Luxembourg
Weapon of Choice:
“Voix Grave” by Johannes Brecht and Christian Prommer, one of my secret weapons of the last months, now released on Diynamic.

Hardest lesson you’ve learned since starting your music career?
You always need somebody with you who looks after your USB stick and your headphones before you leave an after-party.
Describe your philosophy as an artist.
Music is moments.
What sort of legacy do you hope to leave behind?
“He always gave his best!”

Stimming

 

Hometown: Hamburg, Germany
Weapon of Choice:
My remix for Moby’s “Natural Blues,” a remix I did mostly while being on the road—that’s why it has a restless feeling to it.

Hardest lesson you’ve learned since starting your music career?
In dance, it’s much less about art than I thought it would be. It’s basically being a good servant, and I’m not sure how much I like that/how good I am in serving.
Describe your philosophy as an artist:
I’m a musician. This means it’s about making music (not mixing it), and doing so is what drives me—not so much fame or money or image or coolness or whatever. Simply music.
What sort of legacy do you hope to leave behind?
Children that I raise well, and who are able to walk for themselves one day.

Adriatique

 

Hometown: Zurich, Switzerland
Weapon of Choice:
Bruscagin & Visnadi “Agharta Stories”

Hardest lesson you’ve learned since starting your music career?
Reaching a certain state of satisfaction with your on work is a long way to go.
What sort of legacy do you hope to leave behind?
At the moment, we are still looking ahead and not back, as we think there is still a lot to do and to discover. As an artist, you might want to leave something behind which counts for others—a specific track you did or how you developed your very own sound for your label. As a human being, it’s more about how you did in life and with others. I think our legacy could be that we are part of something that makes people happy. These few hours in a club can really turn out to be something to remember!

Kollektiv Turmstrasse

Hometown: Hamburg, Germany
Weapon of Choice:  
Kollektiv Turmstrasse “Sorry I’m Late”

Hardest lesson you’ve learned since starting your music career?
It’s really important to care for a good balance/enough compensation in the nightlife.
Describe your philosophy as an artist.
To have the freedom to do what you love.
What sort of legacy do you hope to leave behind?
To leave a trace of beautiful moments.

Magdalena

Hometown:  Hamburg, Germany
Weapon of Choice:
My remix of Moby’s “Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?”

Hardest lesson you’ve learned since starting your music career?
Always check your tech setup, even if you are told it has been checked before.
Describe your philosophy as an artist.
I enjoy the music to the fullest, and it’s one of the greatest things to share this passion with other people.
What sort of legacy do you hope to leave behind?
I still have some time to work that out. 🙂
