So, i had my first music interview today!

A real character for sure 🙂

Here it is, in it’s entirety.

LOVE-MARKOV: AIN’T HOSTAGE OF MUSIC

So I put a few questions together, hopefully this will be somewhat interesting for you (I’m new at interviewing thing). The first ‘experimental animal’ of mine is Love-Markov, Russia’s Unsigned #1.

How are you?

Me? Cheeky, smart and sexy 🙂

What kind of equipment / programs do you work with when creating your music?

First of all I ain’t a so-called creator, just a kinda heavenly mouthpiece. Second I don’t interest in music but in human fucking life expressed with help of more or less appropriate sounds and the finest spoken word. Third I know nthn ‘bout software and equipment. Mine is the instrument! My friends from all over the world are instruments as well. I get a general idea and lyrics while they produce what they want. Well there weren’t many cases when deez schemes of such an ‘autonomous’ collab didn’t give an outfit.


Currently, who are some of your favorite artists?

I’m fond of garage pop by RXMD from Seattle, urban anthems by Austin! White from Chicago and Michigan’s Mike Posner. Angeleno rapper Non From Shadowhuntaz rawks fasho! And there are nice 18-y.o. guys Anton Vasilyev and Vitya Bezhenar known as Music Trash Brothers here in Kiev. Btw I tend to fav unsigned artists only.

Have you ever played in the U.S.? If so, how does it differ from the Russian dance scene?

I’ve never been stateside and avoid such terms as ‘dance scene’. Well I believe Russian and Ukrainian dance music ain’t original, coz it has no ideas which weren’t imported from abroad. Oh yes, I’m gonna live in California by the way… jus for a couple of years next decade. Umm, last summer Colin Manning, myspace friend of mine suggested me to perform at Cinespace lounge, North Hollywood, LA.

What is the best concert you have attended so far?

I attend no concerts actually. Coz every public performance whether a live gig or some deejay set is compromise to customers who want jus drink and dance as sexy as their grandmas. They have no need in your personal story. Well I really ain’t the dude of compromises. Jus out of industry.

Any upcoming projects that you are really excited about?

Yup I’m gonna issue an imaginary 8bit videogame OST up to winter. Twould be kind of electro swing.

What would you say to any aspiring producers and artists?

Yeah, mates, listen up! Keep doing your things on and on… yet don’t be hostages of music.

Hey Friends,

I was very impressed with Nash’s music, here’s some information on this fine young artist..

“Nebojša Doroslovački – Nash Donson born on 28th of April, 1984.When Nash reached the age of 13, he started to go to parties in his home town. Soon after he showed a great interest in electronic music. At the age of 16, he first discovered the software – Reason and started his professional music production. Never was really interested in DJ’ing, just producing. His music styles were under the influence of The Global Underground compilation series, that’s why he decided to produce and re-create his music close to that and he was good at it. His diverse music styles vary from ambient, breaks, house, trance, techno music. When software Ableton Live arrived in Nash’s life, a new door opened up for him. At the end of 2008, he was given samples for remixing Chrono’s track “The Street”. It was a huge success and it was published by Elektrax Progressive. Nash continues with his producing, and more EP’s were published by Multipraktik rec. Vectrorec. IF? rec.”

..And Justice For All

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a while since i’ve posted anything, thank you for being patient. I’ve got music from electronic artist Lunar Synthetic. Trevor is a good friend of mine, and here’s what he does…

“Lunar Synthetic is the creation of Trevor Bidstrup. I use LSDJ with a classic Nintendo Gameboy. Along with the gameboy, an array of various effects and other sound making devices, I produce all the sounds you hear. If you enjoy what you hear, please visit my shows! The music is only as good as the live show!”

Here is the link to a collection of his most recent songs entitled “Between”.
