There are a lot of moments, concerts, people, places, that gave us the right impact.

Cosmyte:
We are working on a Lullaby project.

Mason Stephenson Interview on Nagamag

Interview

.


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

Mason Stephenson:
My music focuses on a romantic/classic style and features a melancholy and peaceful sound.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Mason Stephenson:
I have played piano for around four years, on and off, and I began writing my own pieces at the start of 2020. Since then I have released two pieces and I have more pieces ready for release in the near future.


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

Mason Stephenson:
I played piano for the first time in secondary school but not long after, I decided to play guitar which my best friend taught me. I used to play guitar in a heavy metal band for a few years before going back to piano and discovering my love for classical music.


Nagamag:
What is your creative process like?

Mason Stephenson:
I am a big believer of just playing the way you feel. Wether that be pouring your feelings into music as a way of release or delving into your emotions for a great sense of connection with what you play.


Nagamag:
Who are some of your influences?

Mason Stephenson:
My favourite composer will always be Chopin. I always feel that his pieces contain so much raw emotion and are so intricate that they will always interest me. In modern classical I am also a big lover of a composer called Eric Christian, his music is massively romantic which is one of my favourite qualities of piano pieces. I find that romantic pieces can really tell a story and paint a picture in your mind without the need for words. I find that being able to tell a story with only notes and melody is a truly remarkable art form.


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?

Mason Stephenson:
Fleetwood Mac "Rhiannon"

Arkanna Interview on Nagamag

Interview

.


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

Arkanna:
At the moment, I would say electronica, trip-hop, downtempo, chill, sometimes with world elements.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Arkanna:
I grew up in a musical family. With musicians on both my parents sides. I was brought up listening to Rock n Roll, Motown, Soul and everything in between. The UK charts were always on in my house growing up, hearing bands of the 80's like Bronski Beat, The Human League and The Cure. Also often, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and my Mums favourite, Rod Stewart.
When I was a teenager, I loved Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, The Doors, Nirvanna and lots of dance music like Beats international, The Source, Technotronic and 808 State.

I first picked up the guitar at age twenty one. At the time I started going clubbing and loved progressive house back then and all the chillout stuff around at that time. Before this I was more into drawing and painting as my creative outlet. A number of years later I started writing my own songs and played a few acoustic gigs. I was listening to bands like Morcheeba, Beth Orton, Faithless, Massive Attack,Lamb, Portishead, The Chemical Brothers, The Future Sound Of London, Bjork, PJ Harvey and Leftfield.

Soon I met my partner, who was an MC in a Drum n Bass band at the time, and as a DJ he introduced me to a lot of breakbeat, Techno, Hip Hop and DnB. He introduced me to my first production software and I was hooked.

I started to teach myself production developing my acoustic tracks into a more electronic sound. I put a few of my first productions online. In 2009 I was offered work with London based techno/breaks producers, Elite Force and Meat Katie, recording vocals for 'Fire's Still Burnin' on their Dustbowl EP, released on U&A Recordings.

While still working on my own productions, I was also writing and recording music as part of a collective called Timeshade. This brought about a release in 2010 in which my vocals featured on Bambook's track 'off the system' feat Arkanna, the vocals taken from one of the Timeshade songs.

Later, I collaborated with producers from Nomad Records based in Italy, on a three track EP. It was never officially finished due to some problems within the label at the time. You can listen to 'Love is Timeless', on soundcloud, which is one of the tracks from that EP.

Finally by 2017 I felt happy enough with my own music production to begin independently releasing my music, the first of which was 'All This Time'.

My latest release 'Wonder Cloud' has been supported on BBC music Introducing in Scotland and recently remixed by the very talented Side Liner.


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

Arkanna:
I have always loved music as far back as I can remeber. I was always singing when I was a child. I was given my first keyboard when I was 10 and remember writing lyrics to the songs I made up on it. The Casio SA-1, I thought it was so cool lol. I actually found one a few years ago in a charity shop. I had to buy it haha.
Music for me is about my connection to the unknown mystery, the all or whatever you want to call it or see it as. It is my healer, my passion and a tool for self- reflection and discovery.


Nagamag:
What are your plans for the near future?

Arkanna:
I am currently finishing my EP and plan to develope and release a lot of the music I have written over the past few years, as well as all my current material. I'm also collaborating on a track for another artists forthcoming album, more details on that in the very near future.


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?

Ane Brun "All My Tears"

Ryan Flynn Interview on Nagamag

Interview

.


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

Ryan Flynn:
The genres that better describe the music style would be Synth Pop, Indie Pop, and Indie Electronic.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Ryan Flynn:
Originally begun as an experimental side project while in film school, ryan flynn has since evolved into a perpetual orb-praising space pop venture. It was in Rochester, NY that ryan flynn established his signature funky synth pop sound, solidified by the release of an eponymous EP in 2019 with widespread praise from the local community.
In 2020, ryan flynn took to the road with his Moog synthesizer, writing and performing improvisational pieces inspired by the scenery across the country.

Currently, ryan flynn is focusing on writing and releasing new tunes such as "Seems Like Yesterday," "Pressure," and "Outside" alongside creating tasteful visuals to accompany the releases.


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

Ryan Flynn:
My first connection to music was certainly through my parents love for music. I was consistently surrounded by great music and was fortunate to have a piano in our home. No one else could play, but I'm pretty sure it was just there when we bought our house on Long Island. I would fool around and eventually grew to love the instrument! Once high school hit, I found myself writing and performing in a metal band with some great friends. I'd say with all of those things coming together, this was my pathway into music.


Nagamag:
Do you have any plans to follow the release of the latest single, "Outside?"

Ryan Flynn:
Yes! We have a music video for "Outside" coming out December 16th. For the music video, I've combined and edited the works of two amazing artists together; Micah Buzan, who does the beautiful animation, and Taryn Elliot, who does the amazing landscape filmography. The combination of the two really vibes with the the track and I can't wait for people to connect the visuals with the track!
