Siriusmo

in Feature, Slices by EB Team about

Berlin-based artist Moritz Friedrich is a man with many faces. While he’s made himself a name as a producer on labels such as Exploited Records and Monkeytown under his moniker Siriusmo, Friedrich also works as a visual artist. Whether it’s paintings, graffitis, or broken beats and techno, Siriusmo knows how to treat different canvases.

In Winter 2011, Electronic Beats Slices met up with him at his studio to talk art, music, and self-discipline. “The finishing process is really hard for me”, he said. “The goal is the record. But you have to be very disciplined, and that’s just not me.”
