    Smile The Definition of Happiness

    The Definition of Happiness

    Alfred Hitchcock:

    "A clear horizon, nothing to worry about on your plate. Only things that are creative and not destructive. That's within yourself, within me I can't bear quarreling I can't bare feelings between people. I think hatred is wasted energy. It's all nonproductive. I'm very sensitive. A sharp word said by say a person who has a temper if they're close to me hurts me for days. I know we're only human, we do go in for these various emotions, call them negative emotions, but when all these are removed and you can look forward and the road is clear ahead and now you're going to create something. I think that's as happy as I would ever want to be."



    Improvisation and Alfred Hitchcock form the core of the German artist's standout performance.

    In preparation for his RA Session, David August sourced a voice sample of Alfred Hitchcock and composed some bass sounds. He then took the words of the revered film director as inspiration and built a completely improvised piece—one he's never performed before, and will never perform again. It was only a few years back that August was a DJ with a vague idea that he'd like to just play live. These days he's one of the biggest draws in dance music, finishing 2014 as the #4 live act on our annual list. August has got there through the strength of his live show and a compelling signature sound. His sets blend musicianship with technical nous in a way that makes his efforts obvious to the audience—far from "pressing play," in other words. As for his style, August made his name through a run of melodically rich club tracks for Dynamic Music and, most recently, Dixon and Âme's all-conquering Innervisions label. As on last year's "Epikur," he conjures emotions without resorting to clichés, delaying gratification until the moment is just right.

    That's one way of looking at it.
