    MercuryRising 003 [March 2008] - Miroslav



    For the past ten years, Miroslav has been on a self-imposed journey of reflection, awareness, and growth through most varieties of electronic music. He’s the kind of guy who can happily spend the entire (and he means entire) day at Gramaphone Records when he visits Chicago. He makes no secret about being an obsessive perfectionist who will readily devote weeks, even months to building the perfect tracklist. Simply put, this is not just a hobby; Miroslav lives, eats, sleeps, and breathes this stuff each and every single day.

    Originally from Slovakia, Miroslav (yes, his real name) grew up in the Midwestern USA in a very musical household, where he spent his high school and college years training extensively as a classical flute player and later as a self-taught guitar player. Everything changed for him one day in the summer of 1997, when a listening of DJ Shadow’s “The Number Song” set him on a musical path that would take him through downtempo, indie hip hop, drum ‘n bass, ambient, deep house, progressive house and finally minimal house/deep techno. An all-vinyl DJ now for the past five years, he has invested many thousands of dollars in his 600+ record collection and has earned a handsome return despite never making a cent off of his obsession. He’s played out on a variety of occasions, but a full-time graduate student schedule keeps him pretty busy; he can most often be found playing at all-night after-hours parties with old friends.

    “This music is a precise reflection of who I am; it’s hard for me to even put into words the philosophical and therapeutic implications that a constantly changing musical loop has for me. It’s the perfect mood equivalent to meditation; it’s like immersing yourself in a slowly changing kaleidoscope or watching clouds pass overhead on a summer day. I don’t think I’ll ever outgrow this.”

    “I really find that the minimal/tech sound provides me with a detour from traditional chord progressions that yields many beautiful, mind-expanding subtleties. At the same time, I recognize that a bunch of glitchy minimal tracks strung together can fall really flat, and so I try hard to maintain the right melodic elements and the right flow throughout the set. I want to really push myself to extensively merge different tracks throughout the composition to create something new that wasn’t there before. And I want it to be a true performance, so I manually mix everything live with no edits.”

    “In the future, I’ll probably branch out into different kinds of media and technologies, and I’ll become serious about my own production. But I’ll never forsake my records. To me, there’s nothing like digging through the crates and lining up those beats on the ones and twos.”
