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

Slanks:
My music style is a dynamic fusion that draws from multiple genres. Primarily, I would describe my sound as a blend of Trap, EDM, Cinematic and Orchestral elements. This genre fusion allows me to craft compositions that range from the energetic and aggressive vibes of Trap to the mysterious and epic atmospheres of Cinematic music. I believe this versatility is a key aspect of my artistic identity, enabling me to evoke a wide range of emotions in my listeners.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Slanks:
My musical journey began at a young age when I started learning the piano at 11, laying the foundation for my future pursuits in composition and production. As I honed my skills, I experienced a significant breakthrough at 18 with the release of ‘Pull Up’ – a collaborative effort with fellow producer Squantex. This marked my entry into the music industry and set the stage for a transformative artistic evolution. Inspired by artists like Apashe and 2WEI, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery, blending my Trap roots with EDM and Orchestral influences. The result was a style that resonated with audiences and positioned me at many great places. Throughout my career, I’ve garnered rapid recognition through collaborations with esteemed Record Labels such as Actuation Music, Magic Music, Trap Party, Beast Trap and more, showcasing at the same time my ability to connect with a global audience. I have also been supported by many YouTube music channels such as Trap Nation and Trap City, while my tracks and my EP have charted in multiple countries.

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

Slanks:
Absolutely, my first connection with music was a transformative experience that ignited my passion for becoming a music artist. At a young age, -like I already said earlier- I started learning the piano and it was during those early moments of creating melodies and exploring the expressive power of music that I felt an undeniable connection. The realization that I could convey emotions and tell stories through sound sparked a deep love for the art form. This initial connection laid the groundwork for my musical journey, influencing my decision to pursue a career in music production and composition. It was a pivotal moment that set me on the path to becoming the artist I am today.

Nagamag:
Do you think that it’s hard to be a music producer – composer in Greece?

Slanks:
Becoming a music producer and composer is undoubtedly a challenging but incredibly rewarding journey. The music industry here is harsh and competitive, requiring a combination of artistic talent, technical skill and a persistent work ethic. Crafting a unique sound and standing out among the vast array of artists can be demanding, but the creative fulfillment and the ability to connect with audiences make it worthwhile.
