Modcast #146: Misha Hollenbach (P.A.M.)

Brain bug box musik! This freakout was formed by the manic mind of 'DJ PORK AKA DIJK VAN CHEESE' - the once in a lifetime DJ alias of Misha Hollenbach. A Renaissance man and great cook, Misha is one half of culture club Perks and Mini, Bamboo Musik and AWI4000, a quarter of the CHANGES and sometime 3rd Dee Wee. Mixed blood. Have a lick and go round the bend with "Italian late 90's trance, library, african, bees, WOO!, etc.....!!!".

Tracklist is unfortunately unavailable at this time. Cryptic clues will be revealed to followers of the perksandmini instagram tribe. We tried our best to have a sane chat with the man below.



What are you working on at the moment?

A documentary shooting next week in Mullumbimby w the RNVG guys on electronic music composer French 70's Ariel Kalma, collab with Rob Lowe.
Non-Objectional paintings in my studio.
New PAM graphics for new season.
New art show and book w/ Peter Sutherland.
New book w/ Mathew Hale.
New Spike album (Golf Channel) LP cover.
New covers for LNCC new record label.
New release w Thomas Bullock and my daughter Odette.

Your artistic mind strikes me as perpetually stimulated. Even in casual conversation its like you're brainstorming fictional techno band names. Does your creative capacity ever exhaust? Is there any mental serenity in the chaos?

My brain seems to need to making connections in order to keep moving. One thing always leads to another ..... which makes me think, what about Pop the Boat?

Never not poppin!

A large part of your practice is collaborative, whether its making art with Peter Sutherland, forming the Cave Slave music project with Rub N Tug's Thomas Bullock or designing P.A.M. collections with your wife Shauna T. Having worked with so many artists that like to keep things strictly solo, I'm curious to know what the main attraction is to this process?

The collab is a fun, great, positive, productive, exciting way to hang. It's simple.

You go to great lengths to source music. Endless travelling, chance finds, curious covers, knowledge swapping. Where did some of the records used in this mix come from?

Some recently came from this ex Club DJ in Preston, some from deep within my own collection, some from discogs, and some promos. There is so much music, all around us, wherever you look you can find.....

The set is pretty bugged out. What do you recommend listeners do during playback?

Listen. Enjoy a glass of wine, slice of pizza, drive down the coast. Wine glass in the cup holder sounds good actually. As does weed.

Can you describe your most psychedelic experience?

Life. Child. Love.
