An Interview With A Promising Newcomer In Electronic Music, savnko
Newcomer producer savnko might be of your interest if you’re into underground music. He was instantly hooked by Electronica in his natal Italy as a teenager. Nowadays, he’s ready to launch his first debut EP, ‘Epic Arguments’. Basically, it’s a summary of atmospheres, and both bright and dark vibes experienced in his second home, the UK. He recreates all his feelings through ambient textures and subtle beats. Learn more below.

1 – How your perspective on music has changed since you moved to London?

When I started producing at the age of 14, my musical influences were mainly Techno from artists like Nina Kraviz, Riccardo Villalobos, etc.

When I moved to the UK at the age of 17, one of my roommates made me fond of vinyls which changed my prospect. I discovered many past and present artists I was not aware of.

Very soon I found myself totally immersed in this new world.

2 – Who were your childhood music heroes?

As a teen I used to listen to any kind of music, there was no Spotify or other sorts of streaming platforms where to get any music you want.

Coming from a small town on the outskirts of Milan, I had no possibility to visit music shops because they were far from my place, so the only thing I could do was to use emule, trying, out of thousands of titles, to find the audio track which sounded more similar to what I was looking for.

I remember I used to type the name of the artists which mostly captured my attention, from Kanye West to Motley Crue, they were some of my favorite.


3 – Are you musically influenced by them?

Sure, they are part of my various influences as well.

4 – Who taught you the art of producing electronica tracks?

As a boy, I used to DJ at school and friends’ parties. Once, a friend of mine showed me FL Studio and that was the first DAW I started working on, up to reaching my present level.

5 – What are some of your favorite studio plugins and tools that you can’t live without?

I have had for a couple of years a Korg prologue 16 and I am totally fond of it, but what I cannot do without is my TR08, the drum machine where my beats are from.

6 – Your new single “MUDBOY” feels so chill and dark. How is that possible?

“MUDBOY” is one of the songs I feel most in ‘Epic Arguments’ EP coming out on 14th March via Pitch the Noise.

My intention with this track is to put together all sensations and atmospheres I felt during my years in London.

There I was alone, with no parents and friends, I could reinvent myself, meet people with the same interests and passions and this leads me to have a dark sound even if you don’t have to consider it always as a synonymous of negativity.

7 – Are you willing to take this music direction on your next singles or something different?

I haven’t got a precise direction, I mainly try to flow with music and sensations I am feeling.

8 – Do you believe your style fits well with the video game or film industry?

I can say that I’d be surely happy to have cooperation generally in the arts field, making available my music for different kinds of ideas.

9 – Is it true that underground music sounds much better than mainstream? What’s your opinion about this dilemma?

I haven’t got a real opinion on the matter but I think every one of us has their own tastes which have to be respected,

10 – Finally, what excites you about the future of electronic music?

I like the mix of many genres and subgenres and the variety and interesting things that are coming out and the constant evolution in this world attract me more and more.

You Need To Hear This Brand New Synthwave Duo, Arrows
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Arrows, they are a brand new Synthwave duo from Denver, Colorado. It is composed of Brennan Hales and Jordan Tanguma, who inject satisfaction in each track of their first full-length album, ‘After Hours’. Pay attention to their futuristic laid-back atmospherics accompanied by synthesizer-driven melodies. These artists step out of the comfort zone, by experimenting with chill and vintage elements too.

Moreover, nostalgic fans of 80s music will adore this material, as it is highly influenced by Duran Duran, New Order, Akira Yamaoka’s Silent Hill, and Dance With the Dead. Of course, it’s mainly instrumental in nature, with the exception of “Terrified”, featuring Savannah Jane’s extraordinary vocals. On a side note, this is just the beginning for Arrows, who will release a new EP in August 2020, venturing into a dark direction with his next songs. Stay tuned!

Justin Jay And Josh Taylor's Relaxing Song, "I Just Wanna Sleep"
“I Just Wanna Sleep”
by Justin Jay and Josh Taylor is a perfect fit for late-night listening. A relaxing tune that is the result of experimenting with downtempo nuances. Like most contemporary artists, Justin recorded this jam from the comfort of his home studio. Plenty of guitar notes, synths, and bass solos, the whole composition is well balanced. Moreover, its summery vibe and the breezy “ooh-ooh-ooh-oohs” give it a retro touch. As the title suggests, it’s almost an ode to the state of deep sleep. On another note, it forms part of his next album, ‘Everything Will Come Together PT. 2’ via Fantastic Voyage. Don’t forget to stay alert for more information on his social media channels below.
