RAVER MAG EXCLUSIVE:
With twenty four years in the studio and fourteen years behind the decks, the duo of Rene and Gaston are without question distinguished creators and innovators of House music. Raver Mag had an opportunity to catch up with them after their live main stage performance at EDC Orlando. This is what they shared with us. RM: What influenced you two to start making music? Gaston: When I first heard electronic music back in the 80’s I didn’t know what it was but it fascinated me. What were these noises? And not long after that someone at my school had a synthesizer and then I realized that these records were made with equipment like that. So I was like “I want to make this”. That’s how I became interested in electronic music. René: Yeah for me, I was already DJing before electronic music was born. I wanted to be a musician so I tried guitar, keys, singing, drums but it didn’t work out. So then we had the first House records and they were made with sequencers and computers. I bought some equipment and started fooling around until we met and then it got serious.
