Exclusive Interview & Guest Mix: Taelimb

Hey Taelimb and thank you for answering my questions for drum+basics! Let’s start with the obvious; your name. Where did you get that from?

I went through loads of names years back when trying to settle on something and every time I found a cool name there were already hundreds of other DJs who had got there before me. So I decided to come up with something random. Now when you Google Taelimb, nothing but me comes up. I only wish I had made it a one syllable word so that people couldn’t miss pronounce or misspell my name.

You are a DJ and you produce music; how did you start? Have you experimented with other genres as well?

I started out making hip hop when I was around 18 because that and Jungle was what the London scene was all about. Now I mainly release DNB and definitely enjoy producing it the most. I’ve started to enjoy DJing more recently, it’s far more fun playing out to a crowd than to a wall in my bedroom.

Where do you make your music and what’s your set up like?

Most of my music is made at home on my set up in my bedroom, mainly on my headphones (Beyerdynamic dt880 pros). I also have a pair of Yamaha 880s, which for the money are awesome. Apart from that, it’s just an iMac, some good plugins and a midi key board. I only really go in to the studio for final mix downs and to test masters, etc.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I draw inspiration from all kinds of places, sometimes I just go wondering around my house with my Zoom, recording all kinds of stuff to sample and then manipulate on the computer.

Also just trying to listen to as much music as possible from non DNB genres, like grime, house dub even metal.

Favourite DJ/producer right now?

OOOOoooh thats hard! Can’t pick one! but defo Breakage, Alix Perez, Arkaik, Conscience, Amoss, Fre4nkcy, Data 3, I could go on and on and on…

Do you do any collabs as well?

My longest standing collaborator is Conscience; he’s the only one who will really put up with me. But I generally find I work best on my own. I also finished tracks with Fearful and Anile. I’ve got loads that I have started with other people though I just never seem to get them finished.

Your new EP has recently been released on Demand Records. Tell us about that!

YES! Finally got something out, the EP is called Snapback. I haven’t released in ages but I’m now back in full production mode. Got loads more projects in the pipeline so keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram and Facebook pages. There’s a mix of tunes in there, so should be something for everyone, a bit for the dance floor and some deeper stuff too.

When you’re not being a cool producer, what do you do?

I am a carpenter and build studios, acoustic spaces and refurbish houses and flats. I also love martial arts, which I have been doing in various forms since I was 15.

I haven’t seen you out in AGES – do you still go out raving?

Yeah I do, but it tends to be more so when I’m playing out or have been invited somewhere specifically. I still love raving, but it just gets harder and harder to recover these days!

When can we see you DJ anytime soon? Just played a DNB Arena night at Studio 338, which is a sick venue. Next up I’ve got a gig in Bristol on the 23rd November with the MTF crew. They are relatively new to the scene but they put on banging nights.

You’ve done a wicked mix for us, tell us a bit more about it.

Tried to take you on a little journey through some of the new and old music out there that is inspiring me at the moment and gets me excited about what’s happening in our scene at the moment.

What’s next for Taelimb?

At the moment really trying to make a big push for next year – got a load of projects; one in particular that i’m quite excited about involving Joe Raygun and Visionobi. I also have a couple of other EP’s coming in the next few months so keep an eye out for those too!

Other than that I am getting some help from a friend of mine Paleblu. He has been helping to manage me and my socials, pushing Taelimb as a brand etc so hopefully this will lead to generally getting a bigger following behind me and open up more opportunities in the DNB comunity

Any famous last words or shout outs?

Big up to all who have supported the new EP, legends!!!! and Carlos at Demand for putting in so much work for such little reward, man is a diamond and the label should get more credit!

Obvs all my Flexout gang and the all the girls repping hard for our scene right now!!! Big up Sweetpea, Kyrist, Djinn and all the others putting in the hard work, about time we had a push for some more female involvement in the DNB scene.

Oh yeah and Paleblu for hooking me up with his show on reprezent radio 107.3fm, will be on every 2nd month – first one in October with Breakage and MC Visionobi
