The Archer – Let’s Not Interrupt (Keep On Dancing)

“Electronic layers of retro taste keep us active, alive and kicking. "The Archer" knows well how to entertain his audience and bring smiles through old school House sounds. Now is the time to feel this vibe and keep on dancing.”

-Nagamag.com

Now with “Let’s Not Interrupt (Keep on Dancing),” The Archer crafts a deep reminder of why we love all this in the first place, spanning time with its uncanny ‘90s house chords and a beautiful take-charge vocal that inspires more than demands clubbers sweat out those pandemic blues once and for all.

Iderdown Interview on Nagamag

.


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

Iderdown:
I like to think of it as leftfield music, influenced by a wide array of genres. They all get blended together when I start writing, so any track at any time will be a mixture of noise, prog, post-rock, ambient, drone, glitch, trance, industrial and breakbeat.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Iderdown:
Well, I was in an industrial band in high school and at the same time playing around with screamtracker. This was followed by some indie rock years in bands and toying with 4-track bedroom lo-fi songwriting. I started releasing my instrumental electronic music as iderdown in 2003 and continue to work on diverse projects like the dark folk band Within and playing as part of the drone collective Cosmic Homeostasis.


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

Iderdown:
I have been making melodies in my head for long as I can remember and grew up in a house full of music but the first time I heard the songs that made me want to create was during high school, where I was lucky to have a group of friends who explored strange worlds of music.


Nagamag:
Tell me about your latest release?

Iderdown:
iderdown's last release was a collaboration ep with Arcane Trickster called Snowbird. It's an ambient soundtrack for a tranquil shore.


Nagamag:
What's coming up in the future for iderdown?

Iderdown:
A five track Lp of Ambient music that I wrote mostly inspired by the music of Peter Namlook. There will also be a companion set of remixes by Tempest Recording and Slice Records artists.

Modern Andy Interview on Nagamag

.


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

Modern Andy:
A genre that describes my music more in depth than DownTempo or Chill is something I call FolkTronic. To me FolkTronic is the combination of not just a folk or bluegrass sound interwoven with electronic elements but it is using acoustic instruments in general that are then incorporated into an electronic set. Recording live acoustic instruments for sample/loop playback later is a big part of what Modern Andy is and what I consider FolkTronic.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Modern Andy:
I grew up in a musical household so I was exposed to music everyday from a very young age and I couldn't be more grateful for it. My dad played guitar and banjo, primarily bluegrass/folk music so as a child I was exposed to harmonies, fingerpicking and interesting chord structures. This helped shape how I would start Modern Andy to be a conceptual music/art project that would combine visuals and music to create a living art piece. As I experimented and explored this I I realized what I wanted to do was be a Modern Andy Warhol and thus Modern Andy was created.


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

Modern Andy:
I fell in love with music at a very young age. There was always music being played in my house and there were instruments everywhere. From pianos, guitars, mandolins, banjos and more I could walk around our house and just experiment with music and different instruments. As I grew up I continued to experiment and became interested in audio recording and recording techniques. This really propelled me to become the musician I am today and how Modern Andy got its sound.


Nagamag:
What are some of your motivations when creating the music that you do?

Modern Andy:
Some motivations I have when creating my music is finding those places in a song I can get lost in, finding the places where you stop paying attention, where time ceases to exist and you get lost in the moment and lost in your thoughts. My motivation is to give as much power as possible to an instrumental song so the listener has no choice but feel what THEY feel, not feel what they are told to feel.


Nagamag:
What do you hope the listener takes away from a Modern Andy song?

Modern Andy:
My hope is the listener will take away a sense of individuality and uniqueness from my songs. I hope they feel that they haven’t ever really heard anything like this before and that they will get lost in the songs and be lost in their thoughts while they listen. I hope they create their own story and that Modern Andy is the soundtrack to that story they are telling.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Modern Andy:
Glen Hansard "Say it to me Now"


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

Modern Andy:
Nine Inch Nails "La Mer"

Banco de Gaia Interview on Nagamag

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

Banco de Gaia:
World dance, global, ambient, trance, techno, dub


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Banco de Gaia:
I started out playing drums in rock bands then moved on to guitar. In the 80's I was playing jazz and listening to world music then discovered acid house and became immersed in electronic dance music. Since 1989 I've been writing, recording and performing as Banco de Gaia and I'm not sure if I'll ever stop!


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

Banco de Gaia:
I saw Hawkwind performing Silver Machine on TV when I was 6 or 7. Lots of strobes and smoke and a man with long hair, I thought 'that's what I want to do'.


Nagamag:
Why is world music so imprtant to you?

Banco de Gaia:
I love combining sounds from different countries and cultures, it constantly amazes me that music from wildly different places can share the same basic heart. Music really is a universal language.


Nagamag:
What have you been working on recently?

Banco de Gaia:
I just released a two-track single 'Pirates and Princes' as part of New York Times reporter Ian Urbina's 'Outlaw Ocean' project. He has been travelling the seas documenting what goes on out in international waters where no laws apply. It's pretty grim at times but it's important to spotlight the crimes that are going on out there, and incorporating his reporting into music has been a fascinating mission.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Banco de Gaia:
Yes "Going For The One"


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

Banco de Gaia:
William Orbit "Water from a Vine Leaf"

MiM0SA – Solitude (Spotify)

“A deep forest full of life where an angelic being stands echoing her soothing sounds. This is how Solitude by Mimosa pulls you in. The sounds builds and drums appear softly pulsing like the trees around you. The angelic being rises higher and higher with her smooth drawn out sounds pulling your attention towards the sky full of stars where are 3 moons await. ”

-Nagamag.com

Solitude is a tune that can be described as a warm embrace from Mother Earth or some other matriarch, the beats imitating a heartbeat and while you’re back in a womb like place, the vocals serve as comfort. You’ll find it hard not to take a deep breathe and feel the peace and comfort of this beautiful tune.

Mazoulew Interview on Nagamag

.


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

Mazoulew:
My music has always floated across a few genres, I never really considered myself a 'Hip Hop' or 'Dance' producer for example as I found the idea of limiting yourself to a certain style or tempo of music rather limiting and constraining for creativity. My new record covers quite a lot of ground from downtempo/electronica all the way through to ambient/neo-classical works. I guess at the end of the day, I write what I feel at that specific moment and the result can be a lot of different feelings and emotions being conveyed.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Mazoulew:
When I first got into music I was involved in the Hip Hop/ Drum and bass world, I used to collaborate with literally hundres of different artists and bands. I spent a lot of time engineering and co writing works for people before I really started to focus on my solo material


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

Mazoulew:
I remember when I must have been no more then 10 years old, standing in a charity shop with two casettes in my hand
It was something like Now 50 I think and in the other hand 'The Score' by the fugees. I didnt know anything about either record but I bought 'the score' for something crazy like £1.5 and that was it for me, I played that tape over and over till it wore out and snapped. I obviously went and bought another copy on CD after that but yeah that record changed my life really and opened my mind to different a different sound and different ideas.


Nagamag:
Can you tell us a little bit more about the 'Movements EP'

Mazoulew:
So yeah, this record is quite special to me as I really felt like I had the possibility to focus myself and refine a lot of ideas that I had been thinking about in recent years. I wanted, as I say to cover a lot of ground and explore ideas that I am not really hearing other people put together at the moment. I wanted to show there is a way you can combine such moods as cinmeatic, orchestral arrangments with dance floor electronica. It could be very easy to make a project like this and for each of the individual tracks to sound disconnected from one another. The challenge is to imprint enough of your sonic character and style into the sound to give continuity across the tracks regardless of what genre/style they are written in


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Mazoulew:
Burial "Ghost Hardware"


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

Mazoulew:
Rival Consoles "Recovery"
