Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK
Interview

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

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: As a music producer, I always try to blend organic and electronic sounds, always trying to combine the analog and virtual worlds of music. If I define this with genres, those probably would be in the line of Melodic House/Techno, Progressive, and Deep house, but always open to experimenting.
JØAK’s answer: It depends on the mood or what I want to transmit, in this released song called ”alive” contains a lot of house & progressive roots with a powerful melodic hymn to wrap the mind in a place that we want to enjoy and be honest with our thoughts with the message of the song.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: I’ve been making music for the past decade. As long as I can remember, I have always been in love with creating new things, and with music was love at first sight. I’ve been learning as I go, always trying to work with people who can help me grow as an artist, as well as a person. It all started back in 2014 with Kelders, in which we had a long run together, and collected beautiful song creations and forever-lasting memories. This year I decided to launch my personal project, and I am more motivated than ever, always giving it all of my energy to achieve as much as possible, and complete my goals as a music producer/Dj.
JØAK’s answer: My career has been a whole new adventure in the last 15 years working on my music. I have experienced many genres but in the last years I have been progressing from doing EDM to just only make music, I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into only one genre. I just want to make what I feel in the moment and enjoy the ride being sincere with my future audience.

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

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Alessandro’s answer: One of my best friends ever, back in 2013 showed me a track by Deadmau5, and I completely fell in love at that exact moment. Ever since that year, I’ve been either behind the decks or at my home studio trying to create as much music as I can.
JØAK’s answer: I don’t remember exactly the moment but every day I fall a little more in love with music, and that impulses me to keep creating new pieces all the time.

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

Alessandro Pierozzi & JØAK:
Mac Miller Good News

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

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

Anton Kling:
Melodic, Organic, Progressive, Minimal with a lofi touch


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Anton Kling:
I started in a music program called E-jay when I was 8 years old, then when I was 12 I started making music in fl-studio and when I was 16 I started in Ableton live where I create music these days. I have been making music since I was very young but I started to take it more seriously in the last 6 years.


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

Anton Kling:
I don't remember the first connection with music because there has always been music played at my house when I was young. I remember when my dad showed me Kraftwerk for the first time and I was in awe. But the biggest thing has to be when I discovered Daft Punk at a very you age. I sat on our computer in the early days of the internet and found their music and that just changed everything. I just couldn't stop listening to them, all they did was so new and interesting for my ears. I guess that was when I truly fell in love with electronic music.


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.


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

Iderdown:
Japanese Breakfast "Posing In Bondage"

Jimmi-Woods, Arcane Trickster – Us (Bandcamp)

Categories: Audio, Electronica, The Latest|Tags: , , , |

Jimmi-Woods and Arcane Trickster team up for an excursion into Psy Prog and Trance with “Us” – a diverse three-track tribute to human strength in times of adversity.
This EP muses on the cosmic thread that binds Us together, that we are not a product of, or defined by the system we have created. We are inner and outa-dimensional beings, energy existing both here and now and light years beyond the solar system.
The exclamation of “Us” echo’s in our minds and out into deep space..

Suduaya
Interview


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

Suduaya:
Downtempo/Progressive/Melodic/Psychedelic


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Suduaya:
The project "Suduaya" was born in 2006, after a trip in Sri Lanka, but it's not before 2010 that i decided to work on it seriously. Before that i was focused on my guitar skills, touring with a band in France from 2007 to 2010 (electro/hiphop), and during high school times i had a band and we played a fusion of Metal, Dub and psychedelic. I started to play the guitar at the age of 13, and violin at the age of 5. When i joined Altar Records in 2011, it started to become more important, and i slowly got more exposure on the scene. I quickly played in different festivals, mostly easter/central europe, and couple of years later reached other continents. Mexico, Australia, Canada, Russia, up to now there might be between 30/40 countries i'v been performing.


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

Suduaya:
Discovering "Dark Side of The Moon" at the age of 13 on a radio station. The radio host said "i'm gonna play this album without any commercials, sit back and relax". That changed my life! I had many other connections to music before and after that, but this is the highlight.


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

Suduaya:
Metallica "The Call Of Ktulu"


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