It's interesting to think about the origins of some of today's biggest music acts, and how exactly they got to where they are today. Of course, each story is unique, but one common theme is that at some point early on, there was someone who believed in the artist or band enough to help push them to the next level. In the case of bands like Depeche Mode, Erasure, Nitzer Ebb, Apparat, and many more, Daniel Miller was that man. From his earliest days as The Normal to founding Mute Records and signing Depeche Mode, through today as a DJ playing places like Berghain, the wealth of knowledge and experience he's accumulated over the years is beyond priceless. At this year's Moogfest, I was beyond fortunate enough to spend quite a bit of time with Daniel and was able to squeeze an interview in as well. Although it's one of our shorter episodes, this is definitely one not to be missed.
