Sebastian Mullaert and Markus Henriksson of Minilogue, the Swedish techno outfit, sat down with Ableton for an interview last summer outside of their studio near Malmö. The two have been producing together for 16 years and the interview gives a special look into their production and thought processes behind their music. The gorgeous Swedish countryside is a fitting backdrop for the duo’s musings, which strive to bring the human element back into a genre dominated by technology.

Minilogue makes techno music yes, but they want to make techno with soul, with feeling, and the interview below allows us to dive into the mindset and techniques that make this possible. From yoga to forest walks to separating the stages of their music creation process, Minilogue takes us on a refreshingly intimate journey toward making techno as human as possible. After the release of this video (and two jam takes to be released as an EP on Cocoon Recordings) the two will take a break to pursue solo projects. Check out the full video below and don’t forget to support Minilogue on Facebook and Soundcloud, as well as the new solo work from Sebastian and Marcus.
