111 – See You Again (Spotify)

111 – See You Again (Spotify)

Nadja, Singer & Songwriter of 111, wrote 'See you again' for her best friend who passed when she was 18 years old. At that time she had no emotional tools to deal with the overwhelming pain and it almost tore her apart. Because of all the pain, for a long time she wasn't really able to feel the deep, beyond-lifetime connection between him and her. Now she does feel it and from this exact place comes this song!

Few words about 111:

With 111, Nadja and her producer pick up the idea of 'healing music' with its scientifically proven benefits and translating it into a new sound aesthetic for a wider audience: No eso -cliché, but a fresh, organic ambient -electro-sound that gives the listener a feeling of relaxation and warmth. A lot of the songs are presented in 432 hz instead of the usual 440 hz pop-songs are presented in. Studies prove, that this frequency has more relaxing and empowering effects because it matches the natural vibration of the human body. 111 combines instruments from different musical traditions which are known for their touching and relaxing sounds, for example the monochord. The lyrics sometimes embed mantras from different religions which are known for their strengthening and healing effects, and are always positive and empowering.

With their new approach and understanding of ‚healing music‘, 111 brings together artists from all genres and all over the world, who also believe in the positive effects of rhythm, sound and voice! For example, for their song ‚protected‘ Nadja worked together with award-winning L.A.-based producer Robot Koch, with whom she also wrote the newest track 'See you again'. The successful Berlin-based producer-duo 'Dasmo & Mania' didi the production!

Nibana Interview on Nagamag.com

Nibana Interview on Nagamag.com

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Nibana:
There is no "fit all" description as I'm producing quite a lot of diverse genres but most likely chillout and downtempo, some psybient, some bass music and glitch ... I like using the more generic genre electronic or electronica. I've produced some heavy psytrance for a bit, but I didn't stick to it after I released my album.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Nibana:
I'm quite a newcomer in the electronic music genre even tho I've been producing it for a few years (about 8 now). I was mostly raised on my dad's hard rock playlist, 80s music and then fell in love with the metal scene. I've been a metalhead for most of my music journey, listening to the darker genres of it (hence my . My first approach to electronic music and the genres I produce now has been while playing video games (one of my biggest passion), and later during my first raves in France. I then got frustrated to not be able to tweak what I heard and decided to start my own music project. It then grew to an unexpected size and I've been able to tour all around the world and collaborate with my heroes whom many became my friends.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Nibana:
Honestly my entire childhood was filled with music. Both my parents enjoyed it a lot, despite no being musicians, and I've always been highly emotionally struck from movies' scoring to my parents playlist. I started playing guitar as soon as I could and it led me here. I was never planing to become a full time musician (I'm more of a science guy) but seeing my project get bigger motivated me to quit everything for it.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Nibana:
Départe "Wither"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Nibana:
Solar Fields "The Missing"

odol – One small thing (Spotify)

odol – One small thing (Spotify)

The lead song from their newly released EP, “essence of life” was composed to be the original theme for the brand movie of “radiko”, a Japanese web radio. Created while exchanging ideas with the film director, it’s based on the theme of the little pleasures and happiness that we can find in everyday life. Ryo Mizobe’s sweet and clear vocals bring us back to our childhood and its innocence. It’s a pop song that places importance on giving an analog and organic feeling, and the use of real strings in the recording adds a rich and deep color to the song.

Few words about Odol:
odol is a five-piece band established in 2014 in Tokyo around Ryo Mizobe (vo.) and Koki Moriyama (pf./syn.).

Putting their unique innovative spirit into arranging freely their music regardless of genre, odol manage to update themselves every time they release a new song.

Koki Moriyama, who studied at the Tokyo University of the Arts, is the sole composer of all their work, and writes music for other artists, theatrical plays and movies too.

In July 2014, they performed on the rookies stage of the biggest festival in Japan, FUJI ROCK.

Four years later, they played at the same FUJI ROCK festival 2018 on one of the biggest stages, the “RED MARQUEE” one, establishing their fast success.

They have released three full albums apart from EPs and singles : “odol”(2015), “YEARS” (2016) and “Ourai suru mono” (2018).

In December 2019, vocalist Ryo Mizobe sang together with the famous singer YUI on “Bara no Hana x Native Dancer”, which gathered a lot of attention.

Don Diablo – Thousand Faces ft. Andy Grammer | Official Music Video (Video)

DON DIABLO returns with heart-on-sleeve new singl “THOUSAND FACES”
Multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Andy Grammer lends his epic vocals to the emotional track

LISTEN HERE: https://dondiablo.lnk.to/THOUSANDFACESPR

Dance music superstar Don Diablo continues his prolific start to 2020 with new single ‘Thousand Faces’, a deeply personal record that taps into the heartache attached to losing a parent.

The single is out on Friday 19th June, with the official music video to follow on 21st June. The video was directed and produced by Don Diablo dropping on Father’s Day. It includes exclusive footage he filmed at the age of 13 with his first home video camera. Featuring Multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Andy Grammer, ‘Thousand Faces’ finds the sweet spot between modern dance music and acoustic genius, it’s a track destined to touch the hearts of music lovers worldwide.

Don explains: “Thousand Faces is definitely one of my most personal records that I have written so far. Almost seven years ago I lost the most important man in my life: my father. Since that day my vision on life has changed drastically, not long after that I started achieving all the things I dreamed of most of my life. His passing fuelled me with so much passion and dedication which, looking back on it, gave me an unprecedented amount of energy and drive to work harder than ever to make the most out of my life. During these last years I have often wondered what my Dad would have thought if he could see me now.

“Things got so much bigger than both of us could have even imagined from the last conversations we had.Sometimes when I am performing in front of thousands of fans it feels like I can see him standing in the crowd, nodding his head, giving me his approval. I know my story isn’t unique, eventually we all go through similar experiences, it’s the lessons we learn from these experiences and the way we handle it that sets us apart. I know Andy lost his Mom ten years ago which also made a huge impact on his life, so on top of his incredible vocal talent he felt like the perfect person to tell my story and by doing so, also making it his story and at the end of the day the universal story for all of us.

“Having both lost our parents (his father and my mother) before we reached success, this was a really special song to put out together” Andy adds.

The track follows on from Don Diablo’s March single ‘Bad’, featuring Moroccan-English artist Zak Abel, a floorfilling club smash that has racked up over 20 million hits across Spotify and YouTube in only two months.

One of the most recognisable figures from the world of dance music, Don Diablo recently clocked in at #6 in the coveted DJ Mag ‘Top 100’ list. Recent highlights from his extensive back catalogue include ‘Survive’, a collaborative single with Emeli Sande and Gucci Mane, heartfelt single ‘Brave’ with Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jessie J, as well as high profile remixes for Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Coldplay, Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus and more recently Anne-Marie.

Andy Grammer has taken the pop world by storm over the past few years. His fourth full-length album Naive (S-Curve Records/BMG) quickly rose to the #1 pop album the day of its release and features gold-certified single ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’, marking his seventh certified song to date. It was featured in the big screen drama Five Feet Apart and clocked 18 million Spotify streams in three weeks. Over the last few months, Grammer has released several collaborations including ‘I Found You’ with Cash Cash and ‘Best of You’ with Elle King.

Don adds: “I hope this song gives people hope and the strength to turn something very painful into something very positive, deep down inside I feel my dad is watching over me and I will continue to work as hard as I can to make him as proud as I can.”

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Harry Nathan:
Lofi House, Disco, Nu-disco


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Harry Nathan:
Harry Nathan is an Australian/Greek producer, singer & songwriter, known for his dreamy storytelling and eclectic production, with a fluid connection between soulful lyricism and a deep burning house influence, which can be traced right back to Harry Nathan’s roots in his youth as an up and coming DJ. “I loved house music growing up and have always been a fan of soul and disco. When I was 14, I wanted to mix like Roger Sanchez but couldn’t afford DJ gear, so I cross-wired three stereos to practise mixing. If I needed to slow one down, I would press pause twice really quickly. When I got a regular gig as a wedding DJ when 15 years old, I was stoked just to use better gear and change the pitch. We had a little wedding consortium with some DJ friends from high school. I had to learn to appeal to all tastes, from disco to funk to classic Greek (for the Greek weddings) but I was really crazy about old school house and disco. When the bride and groom left, we’d drink the leftover wedding booze and go back to back mixing house classics till the morning." – Harry Nathan


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Harry Nathan:
I remember being at Summadayze festival on the Gold Coast in Australia as a teenager, front row, watching Roger Sanchez mix three different songs at the same time, from looped acapellas to drum loops and random samples, it was as if there was always at least two tracks playing the whole set. This style of DJing really intrigued me, it brought a whole new dimension to the art of DJ live performance. Carl Cox is another DJ I greatly respect who performs like this also. I'm fundamentally inspired by wanting to evolve the game, creating new sounds and new ways of performing that push the art form of songwriting and music performance.


Nagamag:
How much has your own life played in the creation of the recent Sweet Release EP?

Harry Nathan:
I’d say the EP is pretty honest and close to my own life. Sweet Release” explores the ups and downs of being in a turbulent relationship. “Frontin’ Me” was actually a stream of consciousness recording. I was just jamming into a 1984 Sony M-10 micro cassette recorder. When entering this kind of trance, my lyrics tend to reflect unsurfaced emotions. It wasn’t until after I had finished the recording in one take that I realised the song was about living in LA, and meeting people that are fake, putting up a façade trying to impress all the time. Harriet Tubman is an outlier here, but still mirrors my life experience at the time living in LA. My across the hall neighbour, actor Ryan Lee (who has been in all of my music videos) popped over to grab a fun fizzy drink from my fridge. Our doors are always unlocked, it’s like a Seinfeld situation, sliding into each other’s places a la Kramer style. He walked into my studio and started talking into my microphone, not knowing I was recording. The first part of this recording ended up in the outro of ‘Fool For Your Love’, from my first EP. It landed perfectly in that spot. Ryan continued talking, as if hosting a fictional radio show, when an imaginary Harriet Tubman decided to join us. I legitimately had no idea who Harriet Tubman was, asking ‘Who’s Harry Tubman?’ - to which Ryan replied ‘Underground Railroad Queen’.


Nagamag:
You are also an award winning film maker? Your music videos are quite unique in that you make them with your friends?

Harry Nathan:
My first single Rooftops has won 34 independent short film awards, including Best Fantasy Film at the Los Angeles Film Awards, Best Music Video at the Sydney Short Film Festival, and Best Music Video at the Athens Short Film Festival. The sequel to "Rooftops" was "Fool For Your Love", which is set in the same alternate universe. We make these videos with our best friends, Hollywood actors Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee and Christian Valderrama at my place in Los Angeles. Our most recent video was for "Frontin Me". The original idea was for me to perform the song, though it quickly evolved on the fly to me being on an ambiguous red carpet, being interviewed by Tammy. I entered a trance that took me back to my fourth-grade sleepover.” Rooftops: https://youtu.be/AYJTTBmJwHI Frontin' Me: https://youtu.be/I_AZCOhTOPE


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Harry Nathan:
Khruangbin "Evan Finds the Third Room"

Wonderful laid back beats with beautiful sound design in this atmospheric chill out from Martin Rott.
A track with a right downtempo groove and melancholic harmonies.

Few words about Martin Rott:
Born in Ohio, USA, Martin grew up in Germany with mom and dad being classical violinists, receiving drum lessons from age 6, whilst developing self-taught piano, guitar and bass skills playing in school and church bands.

Leaving home at age 16 to join his first rock band he went on to earn a professional music education including studies at Berklee, Boston, USA, the Conservartory of Enschede, NL, a diploma as a Jazz-Musician from the School of Music and Perf. Arts Mannheim and a BA in music production from the Popakademie Mannheim, where he wrote and produced his first LP for his indie-pop duo „anstatt Blumen“.

In his own Berlin based studio, having his grand piano placed seamlessly next to the production desk, Martin works on finding a unique sound for every theme he writes.

Emerging from this work now for the first time he's planning to release 2 solo EPs and one album with his very own artistic vision of beats and soundscapes, to make room for some of the many ideas based on pictures wich haven't been captured on film yet…

Euclid’s Niece Interview on Nagamag.com

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Euclid's Niece:
My music is generally piano and instrumental, although it can be categorized in multiple genres, including neo-classical and instrumental pop. Although I am still at the start of a music career, I intend to explore more genres, in order to create wholesome, authentic pieces.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Euclid's Niece:
I have started playing piano at the age of 7, it has been 13 years now. I attended a music school for 7 years, and have some basic knowledge about music history and theoretical concepts. Studying about various classical composers raised my fascination with instrumental music, but also made me see (hear, feel) music from a new perspective.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Euclid's Niece:
I have loved music ever since I can remember. I used to sing a lot, and I have been fascinated with piano from the very start of my studies. I must say, I treat my musical instrument as a friend rather than a tool. Music reminds me of my cheerful childhood days, when I could be honest about everything and say things by their name. This is the type of approach I am trying to have now - create something that can speak truthfully to the listeners.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?
