Interview: Wiwek on his Upcoming Collab with an Indian Producer & more

Posted at May 21st, 2015 | by Nishant Tyagi | in Dance Music, News

We had a chance to interact with Jungle House Producer Wiwek, formerly known as Oui’Wack, during his India Tour earlier this month. He talks about his upcoming collab with Indian Producer Zaeden and his experience in India. Here’s an exclusive interview with Holland DJ/Producer Wiwek.
 
G: What inspired you to make jungle house as a genre?
Wiwek: I used to make normal house..a bit more harder though. And then I started experimenting with animal voices and jungle noises in the background, cause I like themes. My inspiration for it is maybe because I like Nature. Now its mostly jungle themed, maybe in sometime its something else I don’t know.
 
G: We’ve heard about your Collab with Zaeden. How’s it coming along?
Wiwek: We are still working on it. It sounds really good already. We’ve played it a few times. We started it in the Spinnin records/music all star writing camp 2 months ago as we both signed through spininn publishing. Its going to be a really cool track for both festivals and clubs.
 

G: Describe Jungle House in 3 words
Wiwek: SEXY, HOT, MONKEYS
 

G: Do you have any advice for upcoming producers?
Wiwek: Work Hard. Work you ass off, like in every other profession, to be the best.
 

G: Apart from Zaeden, do you have any other upcoming track/collab?
Wiwek: I have a lot of tunes coming up. I just put out a tune with Alvaro. I am working on my Solo EP with lots of collabs on it. And my next release is going to be with Gregor Salto in June and officialy the skrillex collab. My solo EP is probably going to be released by the end of 2015.
 
G: Anything about India you want to take along. How was the experience?
Wiwek: Traffic. A Dutch driver wouldn’t survive in India. He would crash in few seconds. I’ve never been to India before, seen a lot of in a short time. I did 3 cities in 3 days so it was pretty exhausting but I enjoyed it.
 
G: What are your 3 favourite tunes you like people to groove on?
Wiwek: I have a remix from the LNY TNZ and Yellow Claw for my tune ‘Riot” which is my favorite right now. I really like the new track from Mike Cervello and Stoltenhoff called Guerilla, which is going to be released on my label Rimbu. Finally I always love to play out my Skrillex collab, nobody really knows the tune but the crowd always gets so hyped when I play it.
 
G: What happened at Bangalore gig when you played Titanic Track?
Wiwek: It was my last song and I really love the tune. I was told that people started crying as I played it. Guess, that’s what feelings do to you.
 
G: How was your experience of Indian Food?
Wiwek: The food is awesome! I only ate it one day though because I’ve heard so many stories about people falling sick. But it was extraordinary! Rest of the days I just ate pizza and stuff to stay safe (laughing).
