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.
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.

Türküm Explores Personal Struggles And Emotions On His Bass-Driven Album
After releasing his personal debut ‘Anti-Sober’ album last year, Türküm has built a reputation on making music that is both sonically pleasing and personally poignant. Such is the case with his new ‘Heartbreak and Regrets’ LP, an eight-track journey into two of humanity’s most complex emotions. Divided into two parts, the LP nonetheless tells a story through a melodic, bass-driven style that, like Türküm himself, can’t be stuck in a genre box. The cinematic opening track “Maverick” signals to the listener that they’re tuned into something big and those dark bass elements continue into the vocal track “Wait for Me,” with lyrics that evoke a wistful hopefulness. “Games” follows along in the same vein, with reverberating basslines and distorted male vocals this time, while “As Long As I Got” brings with it an urban, dancefloor-friendly vibe. The delicate melodies of the interlude “Prayers” open the door for Türküm’s most melodic productions of his body of work, “Killing My Dream” and “Running Through My Mind.” He ventures into new sound territory here with expert prowess, creating soundscapes that are both dark and light at once. “Nightrider” concludes the LP with the most techno influence we hear on the album, featuring a driving bassline with swarming synths that leave you begging for a dancefloor. Türküm has once again managed to make a masterpiece with “Heartbreak and Regrets,” capturing a spectrum of both emotions and musical styles. Read on for detailed information about this talented artist’s inspiration behind the new album:
“My heart fills up with joy when I meet the diehard fans of my music. One of the kids that I once met asked if he could talk to me privately, and told me that my music changed his life, and wanted a picture as a memory. When moments like that occur, I look back and thank everyone who led me to where I am today. Having people message me from across the world puts a smile on my face. The messages they sent resonate with me so well, that I really feel that they mean every single word they type out to me.” – Türküm on the “Heartbreak” part of the album
“The regret side of the album has many feelings built into it. Everyone does regret some choices and mistakes they’ve made in their lives, and when it hits you at your low point, it really hurts. I get messages saying I’m wasting my time and potential on the wrong side of the globe. I feel like an outcast in Turkey, been living here for the last 6 years, and the cultural difference is crazy. I was born in Greece and grew up in Canada, Lebanon, and Germany. I’ve been intertwined with different cultures and communities, growing up in different countries constantly shows you how complex the world is.” – Türküm on the “Regrets” part of the album.STREAM/DOWNLOAD
Turkish indie artist Türküm may be a relative newcomer, but he’s quickly established a commendable reputation based on the quality and production style. Though he has kept his branding and imagery minimalist and enigmatic, his atmospheric and often dark and ominous sound have proved to impress both fans and tastemakers from a myriad of genres. Türküm’s music has been signed to Elysian Records and Lowly Palace and frequents some of Spotify’s biggest playlists, including Mint, Trap Mojitos, Fresh Electronic, and the infamous Beast Mode. Follow this mysterious maestro on Spotify and social media to keep up to date with more sinister-yet-groovy tunes coming soon!

Is The Death Of Kraftwerk’s Florian Schneider Possibly Linked To COVID-19?
COVID-19 is especially difficult for patients undergoing cancer treatments as it weakens the immune system. However, nobody has determined if Kraftwerk’s Florian Schneider cause of death is possibly linked to Coronavirus. So far, his label Sony Music and his best friend, Ralf Hütter have stated that Florian passed away from cancer just a few days after his birthday. (Source: CNN International)
Patients with cancer and their families might feel worried about the virus, as the disease and its treatment can lower the body’s ability to fight infections. In this case, doctors suggest shielding as the best measure to reduce risks. In short, this means that you stay home and avoid face-to-face contact for at least 12 weeks.
On a side note, Florian Schneider can be considered one of the founding fathers of Electronica. Somehow, he also influenced what we know today as Techno. He was literally an authentic genius, who gained international recognition for his futuristic music. A visionary talent that loved to experiment with robotic-esque vocals, minimal beats, and a variety of synths.
I really admire his musical legacy, and I hope we can see pioneer artists like himself in this new era. Believe it or not, he still has a huge fanbase, that even a man in Florida changed his name to Kraftwerk back in 2016. My favorite track is “Radioactivity”, who was originally written for a Greenpeace’s anti-nuclear campaign. Let me know in the comments below, which is your favorite track.
