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"

Studio 22 (feat. Dre the Monarch) (Video)

“They throw punches, they challenge you to a conversation, but this is a friendly meeting with broken beats and a droning bass that pushes your spine! Time has big power, it keeps move on, you drink tea enjoying good music and living the moment, and the whole world cannot stop it!”

“Они кидают панчи, они вызывают вас на разговор, но это дружеская встреча под ломаные биты и гудящий бас пробирающий вас до позвоночника! Вы двигаете время, вы пьете чай, и целый мир не в силах прекратить это!”

-Nagamag.com

Artists shared with us few words about this song:
Created by two college students – an African American and Indian American – this track’s aim is to address recent events in the sociocultural landscape of America. I wanted to really hone in lyrically on a variety of topics that are on everyone’s radar these days, while maintaining an enjoyable mic presence that didn’t come off as preachy. We wanted to keep an old-school, vintage Hip Hop vibe in the track, so we made sure to formulate each component of the song to sound like late 90s/early 00s conscious rap. Dre is the first verse; I (Lil Brick) am the second.

Dax – GOTHAM (Video)

“Dax blows your mind with his powerful recitative, you will find yourself overwhelmed by his words. He wants justice in this world in which we are all at the mercy of the digital world! It’s a strong song that definitely deserves top honors.”

“Он взрывает ваш разум своим мощным речитативом, вы окажетесь подавленным его словами. Он хочет справедливости в этом мире, в котором мы все во власти цифрового мира!

Это сильная песня, однозначно заслуживающая высших наград.”

Matthew Cuban – Blessings (Spotify)

“Songwriter Kelsey Mira well-known for her career as a singer in video games industry is coming up with a new powerful pop song with bits of retro '80s vibe which incorporates stacked harmonies and vocals with great intensity and execution ”

-Nagamag.com

See You on Sunday is a powerful pop anthem, produced by Pete Mills of The Sweet Kill. It is commercial pop meets a bit of a retro 80's vibe. Kelsey is known for her work as a singer for video games and her sound often includes stacked harmonies and vocals with great intensity and execution, as can be heard in "See You on Sunday!"

Kelsey Mira's passion for music can be traced back to the tender age of 7 after battling a deadly case of bacterial meningitis. As she recovered it became clear her short-term memory had been affected due to the massive swelling of her brain.

At a time when neurologic music therapy was an understudied topic, her neurologist suggested putting everything to rhythm and melody. The creative side of her brain made new connections and essentially re-wired the injured part of her brain. She began to see music in color. Anything new that she struggled to retain, became a song.

Kelsey received a full scholarship to study vocal performance at Xavier University where she continued to thrive, using the power of music in all of her subjects. She became the first freshman to make it into the prestigious 8-person choir, Schola Cantorum directed by the renowned, Scot Buzza.

Once Kelsey took Cincinnati by storm with her sold out original shows, she moved to LA and soon became infamous for her live performances at 208 Rodeo where she had a weekly residency, located at on Rodeo Dr. and Wilshire Blvd, at one of the most well-known tourist spots in the world.

Along with performing regularly, Kelsey is known for her singing in the video game world. She can be heard on Immortals Fenyx Rising, Darksiders Genesis, ‘Luma Pools’ in Ori and the Will of the Wisps, as well as others coming out in 2020, and beyond.

Kelsey is currently living in Los Angeles and working on her album, as well as writing music for other artists.

Intro:
Love is a drug that I can’t quit

I sit and cry my room

suffocating feels like I’m choking

I’m just praying that this pain goes away drinking taking shots to the face
how you love me if you’re always playing games
want to leave but I feel trapped inside a cage I just think I need a break
I

How’d you do this
we were supposed to live in perfect Harmony
I got half of you you got all of me
Miscommunication girl just talk to me
how you let it get to this
how you let my friend hit
if there’s no loyalty girl there’s no relationship
yeah
so I think I’m going to have to take a break
So I think I’m gonna have to take a break

I sit and cry my room
my hearts been broken
suffocating feels like I’m choking
I don’t know what to do
I’m just praying that this pain goes away drinking taking shots to the face
how you love me if you’re always playing games
want to leave but I feel trapped inside a cage I just think I need a break
I

This is stupid
don’t start crying now after you lose him had my heart then you went an abused it all my scary dreams have become Lucid my heart is scattered in many pieces broken I think it’s bleeding
numb I have no feeling

I sit and cry my room
my hearts been broken
suffocating feels like I’m choking

I’m just praying that this pain goes away drinking taking shots to the face
how you love me if you’re always playing games
want to leave but I feel trapped inside a cage I just think I need a break
I
I just think I need a break I
I just think I need a break I
