Sinchi & Friends 39 comes from Emma de Seze . Emma first came on our radar with an quality track called Spacio Cold (title track of her EP on Tom Tom Disco) we’ve been avid followers ever since and always impressed with her selections.
In her own words about this mix ‘ I like the idea that people won’t necessarily dance to it, so I wanted to play slow and make some kind of space ballad’.
1)Who are you?
Hi I’m a graphic designer and music lover, dj and producer, I feel like a cliché when I say it out loud ahah. The history of electronic music, all the pioneers, the noise and the structure of sound really interest me which is why I study electroacoustic music in France.
2) What have been your highlights from the last 12 months?
There’s no real highlights cause i’ve been working in the dark. I’ve been playing a little but I’ve been mostly in the studio.
3) What do you have lined up for the coming year?
Release a new Ep, the last one was more than a year ago now on Tom Tom Disco. I’ve been changing a lot of thing in my studio and experimenting new thing so i still need a little time to organise some tracks but it will be soon !
4) Which track in the mix is your favourite right now?
I have a crush on Wolfstream – I’m god
5) What is your favorite track of the last 12 months?
It’s hard to choose one but again it come to my mind the Wolstream remix on Rotten City « Without Sex (Wolfstream With Sex Rework)
6) What is the last record you bought?
Falco « Der Komissar » i find it in Italy in a very interesting shop, Data 93. It’s a kind of classic but Falco’s music is still very interesting to me.

Right now i think it’s coming a lot from the pioneer like Pierre Henry or the Barron. But the new-wave synth-pop, psychedelic bands, and movie score also (Graf + Zyf, Sonic Boom, Lena Platonos … ) There’s a lot of ré-editon theses days of old weird stuff.
