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.

Sonic Radiation’s Electronic Jam “Roentgen” Is An Ode To Star Wars
Sonic Radiation shares his electronic jam, “Roentgen” for your listening pleasure. The inspiration behind this energetic track comes from Sci-Fi films. Within seconds, its progressive nature reveals a futuristic-like atmosphere. To deliver such forward-thinking rhythms he lays out authenticity above all else. Not to mention, you can tell he has a strong vision of tomorrow’s music.
Modern and experimental are probably the best words to describe the style of this rising Dallas-based producer. Likewise, his groovy outer-space synths are integrated with almost all of his releases. According to the artist himself, the illusion of creating beats helped him to get through hard times while recovering from a severe spinal cord injury. At present, Todd Last (given name) is here to represent the next frontier of Electronica.
If “Roentgen” isn’t an ode to Star Wars, then I don’t know what it is. For sure, his work never fails to hold interest. Just close your eyes and imagine exploring an infinite number of galaxies via these innovative soundscapes down here.
“I think all my songs try to grab you by the ear. I hope each one takes you on a different journey through time and space. This track really reflects my skill level and life at the time.” – Sonic Radiation

“Chill Mood” By Donna O. Raphael Is Relaxing Music To Listen To
Florida-based composer Donna O. Raphael releases “Chill Mood”. In brief, this is relaxing music to listen to. What’s more, her creative process revolves around musical improvisation. She started playing around with drum patterns, and a mix of Hip-Hop/Electronica elements. Subsequently, she obtained something more chilled out than usual.
Of course, this piece is still recognizable by her signature instrumental style. The interesting thing is that the laidback feel to it and the spacey atmospherics complement each other perfectly. According to the artist herself, these soothing sounds came out spontaneously. Plus, the whole tune will literally lift your spirit, as she uses her keyboard really nicely too.
