Artist Spotlight! Isolated System
First, introduce yourself
My name is Fabian Sietsema, I’m 25 years old and I live in Groningen. I am the founder of Black Mirror Recordings, a label specifically aimed at techno music.
How did the idea to start a label came to life?
During my student life I came into contact with underground music, including deep house and techno. I had heard about it before, but didn’t really know what it was. A friend of mine who produces music showed me what he was doing, and this motivated me to start producing myself. The idea to start a techno label came to life last year, when I was producing a lot and came into contact with a relative who also had a record label.
How long are you producing?
Since 2014, so about 4 years.
What kind of soft/hardware do you use?
- Fruity Loops;

- Scarlet 2i4
- Sennheiser HD600;
- AKAI MPK Mini mkll;

How many project are you currently working on?
I don’t know the exact number, but I guess it is around 20.
What are your “Best Techno Songs” in general?

What can we expect of you in 2018?
I want to release a lot of my own tracks on my label, but also tracks of other artists. I also hope to be playing in a club sooner or later.
