Felix.. maybe it's because I'm both drunk and high, but the more that I listen to your music the more I think you'r tracks going all the way back to Decance, Pariesienne, Vancouver, L;Amour, etc..

All of these tracks I`ll show off to my hardcore prog house heads who love Deamau5 and the like..

And everyone who I show it to who I can think can handle 'it' loves and embraces your music..

Just like the way everyone fell onto Deadmau5 originals..Honestly.. take that for what it`s worth, but people all across genres of house felt the creativeness of your tracks

Please make more Moss vs. Tree tracks for us!

In Ableton you don't have to beatmatch so headphones aren't nearly as much a necessity as they are with traditional DJing. I'm also a digital DJ and I only use my headphones if I don't remember which part of a song is which, or if I want to make sure that everything will be sync'd (I use Traktor and not Ableton, so it's more possible for stuff to be off-beat).


Kinda depends on how well prepared you are doing a set. If you mostly improv you definitely need headphones to check if it's all in the right key etc

if you go into midi map mode you can map out up-down, left-right trigger on your midi controller... or use the mouse, or use your keyboard... there are tons of way to set it up it's just whatever you like most...

with ableton live 8 they've added some new navigation features and are releasing a new controller, the akai apc40... it looks dope... look here...

Hi Felix,

First off, I love your work. I caught you opening for MSTRKRFT last year and was instantly a fan.

Second, I had a couple questions, primarily on your live setup with Ableton.

1) How did you come to learn Ableton? Any suggestions on websites, books, videos, etc. that you would recommend for a beginner? I feel like I am hitting a slump.

2) Concerning harmonic mixing (or mixing in key), do you follow the Camelot wheel or just do what feels right? Do you have any suggestions about this, for those who have absolutely no musical background?

Thanks and best of luck on the tour. I look forward to catching you in Miami.

do you mean you can select scenes in either direction with one control? this would be incredible, in the past i've always just assigned scenes to the pads on my controller.

Yeah you can!

If you go into midi map mode and look at the right where the scene launch buttons are, scroll all the way down and there you should find the "scene up/down" buttons.
