Kick Bong Interview on Nagamag


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

Kick Bong:
It's not easy, if we stay within the codes of electronic music, I would say electronica, chillout, down tempo but also electro and techno sometimes or house and even pop, I have a lot of influences! I listened to a lot of funk, acid jazz, new wave, punk, rock.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Kick Bong:
In 1985 I met friends with whom we started a band and at 20 we signed an album at Barclay it was crazy! afterwards I played with a lot of groups on drums and percussion in different styles, recordings and concerts.
Well much later at the end of the 90s I discovered electronic music and I had another revelation so I started to buy equipment and at the beginning of 2000 I created Kick Bong it will be 20 years in 2021. I also have another Triptone project which is more pop, trip hop, electro with a lot of vocal features.


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

Kick Bong:
my dad listened to a lot of music and he introduced me to a lot of different artists and styles, so I started buying records very young when my mom was willing to give me some money, I started with 45rpm and albums later.
every time I listened to music I felt like I was on stage and like that every night I listened loudly and mimed the guitarist, the drummer etc ...
When I was 12, I started playing drums, it's an instrument that I already liked, I can't really explain why even though I loved playing the air guitar; )


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

The Cure "A strange day"

Marc-E – Brahman (Spotify)

Tags: , , , |

“ At times it is not easy to interpret the enigmatic internal journey. Brehman by Marc-e opens us up musically into spiritual worlds that engage with rhythm. Whale language and sacred geometry flow through this track like a comet visiting a new Galaxy. Soothing and organic drum overtones that climax with smooth guitar riffs, welcoming to the sacred space of sound design. ”

Produced in Vancouver BC
Samples from Orca Whales in salish sea

Hypnotic Peafowl – The Mind Box (Spotify)

Tags: , , , , , |

“One more special track from Hypnotic Peafowl & Bendja in slow bpm and Psydub style. Clear synthesis and prototype sounds, which prove the great experience of these artists.”

-Nagamag.com

Hypnotic Peafowl breathes new life into his experiments and explores different soundscapes with a quality sound design. Always in a work of advanced hybridization, he brilliantly mixes his multiple influences: orchestral music, jazz, funk, bass music. In this opus, some sweet piano bar melodies and retro inserts with stoner rock influences, dominated by hypnotic, repetitive rhythms, accompanied by a very heavy bass with a warm envelope.

This album is part of a long narrative, all my releases are built around a central character : the peacock and his spirit. The metaphor for imaging his spirit is the Pandora's box.

Quickly it is the story of a colorful peacock who is schizophrenic with all the other worries that arise from such a pathology.

Beautiful to look at, full of life and energy. A funk/Jazz fan, he exudes the joy of life. But not that, the black sides are there.

All of my past and future releases are in the form of chapters that tell a passage of the Peacock's life. Here: Pandora's box or Logorrhia tells the impression of feeling better after a first meeting before the awareness and the psychic fall.

Random Psychill discoveries

Here you will find some random Psychill posts that have been published in past.

Psychill is a type of electronic music which has influence from goa and psychedelic trance including a lot of related names as genres, such as: psybient, goachill, psychedelic chillout, psydub, psybass etc.
Almost if not 100% of tracks are composed with digital sounds via synthesizers and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Nevertheless many tracks are accompanied with vocals and native ethnic Instruments like flute, duduk, tablas etc. Basic characteristic of Psychill, like as Psychedelic, is the rhythmic and aggressive drum set of kick, snare and hi hats that surround almost the whole track in addition with clean basslines and apregietors affected by cutoff and resonance but while Psychedelic trance has a higher tempo level, Psychill has its beating meter around 110-120bpm for a steadier rhythm like Chillout.
