Rick Bull / Deepchild
Based in Berlin, the Australian artist has performed at many of the world’s most respected electronic festivals and nightclubs, honing his raw yet seductive take on mutant house and techno with landmark records issued on labels such as Trapez, Face2Face and Thoughtless.
His chart-topping 2012 album Neukölln Burning solidified Deepchild's reputation as a unique and pioneering producer, and in recent years, he's steadily built his reputation as an innovative sound designer - not just by virtue of his own visionary productions, but also through a steady stream of sought-after sample packs. Juggling all this with an international touring schedule is no small feat, but somehow Deepchild gets it all done.
The launch of his new online radio podcast series, Diversions, sees him selecting a range of his favorite new music alongside under-the-radar classics. Relentlessly slaving away in his natural habitat - the Kreuzberg project studio he considers home - we're delighted to have him on board to share his innovative techniques.

You are great in explaining the logic behind advanced production techniques in laymans language. Relating what you tell us to analog devices makes the whole experience more tangible. You are also very good in using a motivational language for beginners like myself. Great job!

Wow, this was very inspirational. Learned a lot of new and fun techniques in Ableton. It definitely made me respect the "standard" plugins of the Ableton Suite. Normally I would rely on third party plugins but with these tricks you see the power of Ableton. Saw new tricks even though I'm working with ableton since version 2!
