Episode186-TheTerrace-JohnLagora.jpg

John Lagora alias "Tim Wucherpfennig" was born in 1981 in Oberhausen (Ruhr-Area). Thanks to his older brother ,he got infected by electronic music in the age of 11. Listening to old BFBs-based mix tapes of "Steve Mason" was getting his favourite activity. The fast discovery of the darker & harder side of electronic music resulted in starting loving hardcore and rave tunes. With the longlasting consumption of the electronic drug,the beats became slower,softer and more experimental for him. In 1995 he got in possesion of the music software "magix musicmaker 1.0",which animates him to do early attempts at walking in the world of music. But very quick he was bored by premade sample collections and looked for new ways,his solution was like that: "I need synthies!" So he went for it and the program "Fruity Loops" (today known as "FL Studio") put things right for John. After a few years dealing with the new software,he started to do his first own stuff. These early steps resulted in his first releases on respected and well-known netlabels,like alquimia,rumpfunk records and zimmer in the year 2006. John received his first positive resonances on these releases from all over the world. Releasing on Netlabels persisted for 1 year,he wanted to go that way and got encouraged by criticisms. In the time of new media-technology,digital platforms like "Beatport & Juno" gave him the chance to release music on a way more seriously and professionally. First releases appeared,caught on and gave him that kind of feedback,he needed to go on with what he..s in love: making music! In 2008 John could realise the ne plus ultra of every electronic music producer: releasing on the black beauty,the vinyl record!!! His primary dream of doing music was overtaken and he had the ability to play his own records on gigs.

In 2012 new Release will be on Mindshake Records and his own 12" Label Seoul Community

Lets go.
