Săptămâna aceasta am avut ocazia de a vorbi cu Sekai, pe numele său real Tiago Salvador. Află mai multe despre el aici:

Cum combini producţia cu cântatul
Pentru producţia muzicalăcântatul este unul din multele elemente care aparţin arsenalului meu, şi este o unealtă perfectă pentru a da unei piese mai mult caracter.
Poate fi folosit în multe feluri şi practic asta de mulţi ani. Încă încerc  găsesc căi noi pentru a-mi folosi vocea.

Cum ai ajuns la dubstep? 
Credeţi sau nu, nu ascultam muzică electronică pe vremea când eram copil, îmi plăcea mai mult heavy metal. Acele piese au o putere inimaginabilăÎntr-o zi un prieten m-a introdus în domeniul dubstep-ului şi al lui Skrillexşi asta m-a inspirat. De-a lungul timpului am descoperit alte genuri şi artişti de care m-am îndrăgostit, iar aprecierea mea pentru dubstep şi muzica electronică a crescut din ce în ce mai mult.

Am văzut  produci şi dubstep melodic, ce ne poţi spunde despre “Somebody“? 
Somebody a fost mai mult un experiment. La început voiam  fac ceva care  sune a Flux Pavilionşi dintr-o dată a ieşit asta. Le-am arătat-o unor prieteni, printre care şi Sex Whalesşi nu  aşteptăm la ceva extraordinar. Următorul lucru e  mi-au spus cu toţii  sună bine şi  o  ajungă departe. Am avut speranţa, dar nu credeam  va ajunge unde este la momentul actual.

Unde te vezi în 10 ani? 
În 10 ani? Sunt multe de planificat,  fiu sincer, vreau doar  fiu un tip care o face din plăcere şi reuşeşte  trăiască din asta.

Ai avut vreo performanţă live? 
Din păcate încă nu am avut oportunitatea de a performa, deşi  vrea   văd începând anul acesta.

Cum e cu noul EP? 
Oh, e în lucru, deşi nu pot spune prea multe pentru  e doar o idee, dar la timpul potrivit o  fie ceva mare!

Câteva cuvinte de final? 
Vreau doar  spun  produc de 6 ani şi doar în ultimii 2 ani am ajuns unde sunt. Nu doar odată am renunţatşi dacă ai pasiune, lucrurile vor veni la ţine în timp!

How do you combine singing with producing?
For music production, singing is just one of the many things in my arsenal, ans its a powerful tool to make a track have more character. It can be used in many ways and i’ve been practicing it for ages now. Still trying to find new ways to use my voice.

What got you into dubstep?
Believe it or not i haven’t used  to listen to any eletronic music when i was a kid, and i was more of a heavy metal guy. I liked the power that those tunes have. So one day my best friend introduced me to Skrillex and dubstep, and it had that drive and power i loved in music. Over time i discovered and fell in love with a lot of other genres and artists and my love for dubstep and electronic music grew more and more.

We saw you also produce melodic dubstep, what can you tell us about “Somebody“?
Somebody was more of an experiment if im being honest. It all started when i was trying to go for a sort of Flux Pavillion inspired tune, and all of a sudden i had this tune fleshed out. I showed it to a couple of friends including Sex Whales, and i was not expecting much. Next thing i know, they were telling me this was gonna go big. I had hopes about it but i never once thought it would ever get to where it is.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years? That’s alot of planning ahead but, im not gonna lie, i just wanna be that guy who does this for fun and manages to make a living.

Have you performed yet? If yes, where?
Unfortunately i never got the opportunity to perform, although i would like to see myself starting this next year.

What about the next EP?
Oh there’s something in the works, although i cant say much about it yet because it’s just an idea, but when it happens I wanna make sure it’ll be big.

A few final words?
I just wanna say that i’ve been producing for about 6 years now and only these past 2 years have led me where i am. Not once have i gave up, so if you have the passion within you, thing will come to you with time.

Listen to this while you read the interview!
