Posted at February 22nd, 2017 | by Karan Acharya | in

A veteran in the electronic dance music industry, Nate Raubenheimer or Protoculture as we know him was among the headlining acts, on the Trance Stage at Vh1 Supersonic this year. Having started involving himself with music at the tender age of 7, Nate constantly developed his music to where it stands today, a perfect blend of psy and trance. Protoculture has played at every major continent and his music has fans wanting for more every single time. What follows is our exclusive interview with the legend himself, Protoculture.

 

GVO: Alright 1st question, According to Armin van Buuren and I quote, “Everything Protoculture touches turns to gold,” your thoughts on that?

Protoculture: That’s very sweet of him to say. Armin is a great guy and it is a privilege to have somebody of his stature to say something like that.

GVO: My next question, might be something you would have heard before, but why the name Protoculture?

Protoculture: It comes from an old Japanese animation that i used to watch as a kid called Robotech. Long story short Protoculture means human love and emotion, so that’s where i got it from.


GVO: Are you working on a new album and when can we expect it, if yes?

Protoculture: Well I have started work on an artist album but I have a compilation album which is going to release at the end of the month with a bunch of exclusives on it. So there are some exclusive remixes and a couple of new tracks. So exciting times ahead.

GVO: My favourite tracks of yours are Pegasus and Manticore. What would your personal favourites be?

Protoculture: Umm I like Pegasus, in fact Vigel has just done an amazing remix of the track, and besides that I think ‘Music Is More Than Mathematics ‘ is one of my favourites and Naked as well.

 

GVO: What are your thoughts on Trance in India ?

Protoculture: I think its great. There has been a great following of Trance, especially the psytrance scene is huge and Indian fans are really good on keeping up to date with music as well.

GVO: One last question, any Indian artists you are looking to collaborate with, and if yes who?

Protoculture: Well as far as Trance goes, there aren’t too many Indian artists involved, although Lost Stories are doing some really good production at the moment, so those are the guys I would possibly collaborate with.
