Limpid is a German music producer from Hamburg. He started composing on the piano and drums at an early age. His preference for electronic music followed shortly after. His tracks are produced with a penchant for detail and depth, combining different genres like House, Techno & Trance. 1 In Music meets the music producer.
1 In Music: What is unique about your music?
Limpid [L]: The way I build my music is unique. Synthesizers merge with the wide surfaces of the pads and voices fit perfectly into the mix as the artist’s mouthpiece. Using my classical background, I combine melodies with the possibilities of modern electronic music.
1 In Music: What or who shaped your music and who supports you?
L: I learned to play my first instrument at an early age. Thanks to my musical family in which everyone plays an instrument or can sing (my siblings each play the piano, violin and flute), I was encouraged to make music at an early age. Already at the age of 4, I started to take piano lessons in the music city of Lübeck. Soon, I composed my own pieces and performed them. Growing up, I expanded my musical knowledge to the drums and percussion. I played several years for the Youth Symphony Orchestra, including at the Oriental Center in Shanghai. Shortly after, I began studying audio engineering at SAE in Hamburg, Germany, earning the SAE Diploma of Audio Engineering. Along the way, I started to play in the most famous venues in Hamburg. My family supported me every step of the way and helped me develop his music.
1 In Music: When did you realise you were going to make music professionally?
L: After a year abroad in Australia where I gathered many impressions about my music, I realized that I wanted to focus on producing music and thus dedicate myself to my passion. So, after arriving in Germany I built my own first studio and produced my first song, Time V-Take.
Limpid and his music routines
1 In Music: What type of music do you listen to?
Limpid: In my free time, I listen to electronic music like melodic techno, house but also hip hop and more relaxed songs. Artists like Boris Brejcha, Deadmau5 & Illenium are in my playlists since childhood.
1 In Music: Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
L: For me,the most underrated artist is Cargo. His electronic music and the worlds he builds with it are incredible. The way he combines different genres but always keeps his unique style is just unbelievable.
1 In Music: How do you prepare for your performances?
When I have a gig, there is always a routine. First I go to the gym in the morning. After that, I am focused and go through all the important steps of my set again. To relax afterwards, I improvise on the piano. When the time comes, my senses are sharpened and everything is ready to give the audience an unforgettable evening.
A little peek at Limpid’s creative mind…
1 In Music: What do you do when you don’t do music and that you are passionate about?
L: When I am not making music, I turn to my second passion. This is cooking and sports. Cooking is always about creating something new with the ingredients and experimenting, which gives me joy every time. Sport is also part of it, to stay focused and fit in my life, which is essential to him.
1 In Music: Success to Limpid is…?
Success for Limpid is when a listener understands what he wants to express with his music and what he was thinking. It’s not about reaching a lot of people, it’s about reaching the people who can identify with his music and prepare a moment in which they feel comfortable.
1 In Music: What do you wish you were told when you started out and that you think would help anyone who starts out?
Limpid: The most important thing is probably to start simple. There is no single tip that can be given to beginners.
The important thing is to start and keep going. Find your style and don’t let others dissuade you from it.
What’s next for Limpid?
1 In Music: Any upcoming projects for Limpid?
L: releasing my 2nd standout single titled Bondage on 17.11.2022. A laidback Trance heater, it sits very much in that landscape of minimal trance-like beauty that builds with ever increasing emotional tension.
Spacious, translucent and dripping with melodic delights, Bondage is a brilliant example of when a classically trained musician steps up to the plate.
There are moments in Bondage where that inexorable climb to the pinnacle of dancefloor ecstasy and beyond will stay long in the memory of the mind body and soul. Wrap yourself in Bondage and lose yourself to the experience.
