Pitchben is a past winner of the German DMC championship who has the DNA of electronic funk running through his veins. Working the turntables like an instrument, he was one of the key figures in the world of scratching and Turntablism. After winning the DMC finals he shifted his focus to production, sound design and audio engineering with the end result being his album Pitchslap which was released by Compost last month. Not happy simply aping the halcyon production methods of the eighties via digital methods Pitchben has slavishly recreated an expansive productions style with real musicians and live string and horn sections. We’re impressed and intrigued. So intrigued we decided to put Pitchben through our mini-inquisition.
