“I’m gonna make you dance, baby!” Beste Modus boss and house all-rounder Cinthie introduces herself.
Who are you?
My Name is Cinthie and I’m a music lover, record collector, DJ, producer, radio host aaaaaannnnd label owner of Beste Modus, Unison Wax and Beste Freunde. I think that’s pretty much it.
What do you sound like?
I sound like house, house and house and more motherf*** house…
Why should we listen to you?
Cause I’m gonna make you dance, baby!
What have you released so far? What else have you got coming out in the near future?
I released my first EP in 2001 and since then I released some stuff here and there but it only just really started when we launched Beste Modus. I supported a lot of people with their music in the past but now it’s time to finally finish my own tracks. I will have a lot of upcoming stuff in 2017. First an EP on Black Key, then a split EP on Beste Modus and some other stuff which I can’t announce now.
What song sums you up? Why?
Definitely Kim English’s track ‘Nite Life’… Listen to the lyrics and you know why.
What or who is your biggest influence and why?
Traveling is my biggest influence at the moment as I love meeting new people and discovering new places. I’m a big fan of “less talk more action“ and at the moment there are a few people that inspire me a lot.
First and foremost there is Dax J who I met almost two years ago when I sublet him my studio. Since then he really made his breakthrough because he’s working his ass off. Getting up almost in the middle of the night, going to the gym, then German classes, then phone off at the studio all day, etc. That really inspires me although the music is absolutely not my cup of tea (sorry, honey, I still think there is something wrong with your equipment).
Next is Lukas, a young and smart guy who organises some amazing festivals in the middle of nowhere in south Germany. I played there in November and was blown away by what he’s doing there with his crew.
Then there is Markus L who runs Faust club in Seoul in Korea. I recently played there and I was very impressed what this guy is doing for the scene there.
And last but not least there is my lovely Ouissam, one owner of my agency Cliche in Asia. He recently moved from Hong Kong to Hanoi and is absolutely killing it with his club Savage there and in Asia in general. I love all these people because they are doing their thing rather then just talking about it. They all blew my mind and really inspired me.
Where can we hear your music?
Best is to check out my SoundCloud. I think there are also a couple of tracks and mixes up on YouTube as well as my funny Boiler Room.
Where will you be in five years’ time?
I will still be playing music, no matter what, cause I’ve been doing it for 20 years now with lots of ups and downs. In my private life I will probably turn grey or lose all my hair as my lovely daughter will turn 13!
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
I’m a super cool software developer in real life and I know all the worst jokes there are on this planet.
