Morten Granau

DJing and producing at a barely legal age, the Danish talent has been listed as one of the most up-and-coming talents in the scene. We had a chat to the producer ahead of his performance at earthcore – a festival he’s thoroughly looking forward to.
Hi Morten thanks for taking the time out to chat with Forte, how are you and what are you up to at the moment?
Hi there, I am good thanks. At the moment I’m working in the studio and travelling a lot around the world.
We saw you’ve been hitting up the studio with Royal Flush recently, any chance you could give us a little insight into what we can expect from the collaboration?
Yes, I started a track together with Royal Flush who are two really talented producers from Israel. They really are very inspiring to work with. I can’t say too much just yet but the collaboration has been going great so far. I can say that you can definitely expect some ‘Kick ‘n’ Bass’!
Though you have collaborated with others as well, do you prefer to work with others and share ideas?
To be honest I like both. Sometimes it’s better to work alone and sometimes it’s better to work with others – it really depends on the scenario and the collaborator. Everybody has their own way of producing, so the good thing about working with other producers is that you always learn new production tricks.
I guess collaborating certainly helps to mix things up but you also have your own label 432 Records, how have things been going?
The new label 432 Records is something I started with three of my best mates (Phaxe, Joel & Martin Vice) and it’s going really well. Our first release Phaxe & Morten Granau ‘The Collective’ was number one on the global Beatport chart for more than a month! So that has been a really good framework to build up from and it’s just been expanding from there on in!
Is it easy for you to be able to juggle your numerous projects?
Yes, to be honest for me it’s not a problem as I enjoy making music.
You’ve been announced as one of the artists performing at Earthcore in Australia, is this your first time at the festival? Excited?
This will be my first time at Earthcore and I’m really excited! I’ve heard so many good things about the festival, and from what I’ve seen it looks like an awesome event!
Given you’ve performed all over the world, how do us Aussie’s compare? Do we know how to party?
The Aussie’s for sure know how to party, that’s also why it’s one of my favourite countries to play in. One thing I have noticed when playing in Australia is they are much more into organic sounds, and not these small breaks all the time. They sure like to dance!
Out of everywhere you’ve performed, who has been the craziest crowd?
It’s hard to say because crowds can be good in so many different ways. However, I can confidently say that Australia is definitely one of the craziest crowds on the global scene.
When&Where: Earthcore, Pyalong – November 26-30
