Anthony Rother about the creation of music:

"A few years ago, I consciously stopped buying digital music and focussed on producing music specifically for my DJ sets. I never needed to worry about whether I can release it, and that is the spirit in which those tracks on Mistress came into being. Till this day the creative process of making music is an essential part of my daily life. I am exploring and do understand the outside world through the creation of my music. A synthesizer sound or a drum machine beat seems to function as an abstract translator of my inner world and vice versa.

Composing tracks or jamming in the studio is a necessity for me; it’s my life energy. Music speaks to and for me. I think this I share with DVS1 as we both dedicated our lives to this music and scene. For us, the music captures a moment in time as we convert emotions through sound. So writing music, programming sounds with synthesizers or telling a story through mixing records is our key to the universe."
