EPISODE 134: The Idem – Non Bis In Idem (Progrez)
The Idem had her first contact with electronic music production at the age of 18 with the well-known Reason and quickly noticed that this was a wide and wonderful world, beginning to create her own rhythms and grooves in the styles Hardtechno and Techno-house which was what she liked at the time. Of course all beginning is difficult and good results need time and a long learning process, a road which she embarked all by herself.
Then she bought some turntables to play music and gain knowledge, taste, and start getting into the world of music.
Age 20 she created several Hard-Techno tracks and sent them to various record companies. The spanish label Jaxx Records was the first to respond positively to the music and showed interest in publishing her creations. Unfortunately the deal never happened due to the bad situation in which the music market was in at the time.
Age 23 she begins to build a small studio and buys the famous Ableton Live and some powerful synthesizer and starts again to create many tracks an loops that remained unfinished as she was not satisfied of their sound.
Now, age 25 after long and hard work to get the sound to be what she wants it to be her first EP gets released referring to her stage name: Non Bis In Idem
