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

Cosmyte:
There are a lot of moments, concerts, people, places, that gave us the right impact.
One of them is traveling as "pre-profesional" musicians with Super Cumbia band, some Argentinian friends, touring in Europe. We were spending so much good time as a band, as a family, as travelers, by traveling and playing all together.
Other is a concert of Djamanawak, a french band, when they played a 3h30 improvised concert. We were like "wooow, so nice, we want to do that" !


Nagamag:
Do you have some project that you want to talk about for 2021

Cosmyte:
We are working on a Lullaby project.
It's about musical ceremony, a 7 hours night playing, with people sleeping, or dreaming, or just flying inside.
We try explore music as a channel to connect with bigger space in this crazy times, in this crazy world.
We want to explore more about this project.


Nagamag:
You recently talked in social networks about an "inversion of the polarity of human consciousness". What about it?

Cosmyte:
We don't really know more about it, but we can say you that Jbiboulak community announced us by a sercret chanel, that hapenned on the 17 december 2020 this "inversion of the polarity of human consciousness". A kind of global mental change that can happen on earth by the dreams.
They also gave us a link as a cosmic gate to connect to it:

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:
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?

Kick Bong:
The Cure "A strange day"

Nyah – Sano (Spotify)

Tags: , , , , , , |

“Another Electronic / Drum & Bass diamond by Nyah. Impressive intro of gradual progression and crystal clear sound effects, fairly enough for your ear pleasure. Don't miss it!”

-Nagamag.com

‘Sano’ which means 'to heal' and/or 'cure' in latin, is what Nyah associates with the rain, and is why it was initially submitted to us for the Storm themed compilation .

‘’The tune is about rain. The image I wanted to paint is a dark sky with heavy rainfall and shimmers of light breaking through the clouds and refracting through the raindrops.’’

Nyah replicates this powerful imagery through cinematic textures and melancholic compositions. Combined with contemporary glitch techniques and sharp production, Nyah achieves a perfect marriage between the organic and digital realms of sonic capabilities.

Take a listen here - soundcloud.com/sinewavecollective/nyah-sano/s-PRmf7NULmDb

Nyah introduces the first of many single releases which deviate from the main Sinewave Collective narrative, though plays straight into the heart of the vast universe our hive mind has begun to manifest. If you would like to learn more about the collective’s conception and the stories we are telling through ambitious audio/visual projects please visit sinewavecollective.com/home/ to learn more and if you have any questions about our vision then feel free to ask.

MxBG – Rite (Spotify)

Tags: , , , , |

“Experimental work of MxBG in his track Rite from Astyanax Records is a kind of fossil in the genre framework of IDM sound. In the best traditions of the old school and early work of Richard David James.”

“Экспериментальная работа MxBG - Rite от Astyanax Records своего рода ископаемое в жанровых рамках IDM звучания. В лучших традициях старой школы и ранних работ Richard David James.”

-Nagamag.com

"Rite" is an electronic variation on a sample of Stravinsky's ballet "The Rite of Spring". Between onirism and savagery, it unfolds like a meditation taking its source in the complex, haunting and implacable rhythm of the final sacrificial dance of "The Rite of Spring".

www.instagram.com/mxbg.music/

The French produser MxBG invites us to an electronic musical and visual journey, between dreaming, exaltation and nostalgia. He mixes to an exploratory techno with industrial touches his sense of orchestral colours and organic melodies.

Immersed in Beethoven’s symphonies and Wagner’s operas since childhood, MxBG was introduced to modern music via two great works: OK Computer by Radiohead and Londinium by Archive. MxBG’s carefully-crafted music reflects this wide range of inspirations and blends classical instruments with synthetisers and samples.

Fascinated by machines and their contribution to art, he develops real-time generative art algorithms that he presents in his live show articulating electronic explorations and visual experimentations.

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.
