My Digital Enemy, comprised of musical talents Serg and Kieron, joined forces in 2003 and have been hard at work in the studio ever since. In the past year especially, the pairs’ success is at an ultimate high, topping Beatport charts with their unique sounds and fresh house tracks, as well as launching their own label, Zulu Records. Read our exclusive interview below and learn more about the beat-making, power duo.
EDM Sauce: According to your biography, the two of you met in 2003. How did you meet? And did you ever imagine you’d be launching your own label less than 10 years later?
My Digital Enemy: We’ve been friends for a long time before 2003 but that was when we decided to start writing house music together. We had a hard house label back in the day so it was a natural progression to start doing a house label.
EDM Sauce: For those who aren’t familiar My Digital Enemy or your music, can you explain your style and tell us who really who you are?
My Digital Enemy: We like to vary our sound, but generally it is uplifting house music with a tribal edge.
EDM Sauce: How did you originally get introduced into EDM?
My Digital Enemy: The Prodigy has got to be the turning point for us, we’ve seen them live loads and fell in love with the sound!!!
EDM Sauce: Along the way, you’ve played alongside some of the top EDM artists and DJs in the world. Who/what was your favourite show? Why? Any stories you can share?
My Digital Enemy: Warming up for Afrojack at Gatecrasher in Birmingham was one of our favourite sets. The club was rammed, there was a really great buzz, and everyone in there was up for it, not to mention hammered! It took me back to the Rave days mid 90s! Really enjoyed it.
EDM Sauce: What inspired you to start Zulu Records?
My Digital Enemy: I think we saw a bit of a gap in the market for our sound. The likes of Axwell and Steve Angello had stopped writing house, and we felt that a label that provided main room cool hooky house music would do well. Also it was a great outlet for us to put out music we thought was good rather than having to shape everything to fit other labels.
EDM Sauce: Zulu Records had some top spots on the Beatport charts this past year. What can we expect to see next?
My Digital Enemy: Hopefully more top spots on Beatport along with a few Zulu compilations, and also the launch of Zulu Nights!
EDM Sauce: And as for My Digital Enemy, what can fans look forward to in 2013?
My Ditial Enemy: Well we have some great new collaborations with our good friends Prok & Fitch and Jason Chance.
Also with Junior Sanchez, Abel Ramos. We have just joined Radius Artist Management as well so you will be seeing us DJing around the world a lot more often now.
EDM Sauce: Any tips for up and coming artists trying to break into the industry?
My Digital Enemy: Keep at it and try and find a label that fits your sound to release your tracks. It’s pointless sending music to a label that doesn’t cater for your sound.
