Read more about CODE: PANDORUM from the interview below.
HI CODE: PANDORUM! HOW ARE YOU DOING?
I’m good man thanks a lot!
TELL US HOW IT ALL BEGAN, HOW DID YOU GET INTO PRODUCING?
I think in 5th grade a friend of mine showed me FL studio. There you go.
FOR THOSE WHO AREN`T FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MUSIC, COULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL SOUND?
Imagine the most horrifying horror movie you’ve ever seen and translate it into sound.
CREATING AN ALBUM IS MORE COMPLICATED THAN JUST RELEASING A SINGLE. COULD YOU SHARE THE CREATIVE PROCESS BEHIND “ART OF THE DEVIL”?
“Art of the Devil” had the working title “God pt. 2“.The God LP was my debut album and really formed my unique sound. After that i made an album that was really important to me since it was based on the stories by hp Lovecraft. The Videdrome LP after it was a lot of experimentation and definitely my most polarizing album yet. Now after the whole experiences i made with these three albums i wanted to go back. Back to provide my “old” fans a sound they are familiar to but ofc with the production value I achieved nowadays. Also I always loved to experiment with my sound in different genres and there you have it: Art of the Devil.
YOUR ALBUM INCLUDES A LOT OF COLLABORATIONS WITH NAMES LIKE QOIET, TENGRAPHS, VULGATRON AND MORE. HOW DID YOU END UP WORKING WITH THESE NAMES?
TenGraphs is probably one of my best friends. Also an amazing artist and big part of the success of Crowsnest Audio.
To Qoiet: I worked with him many times already and I think my production works extremely well with his incredible vocals.
Kid Bookie, Vulgatron and Advm Stone are a different story tho. We just got in touch through Instagram and thought that the styles match extremely well. Both of em turned into good friends of mine and I’m extremely thankful for that!
The last collab with “Snowhite” is a bit harder to explain. She’s an incredible singer with one of the most unique voices I’ve ever heard. I know her for at least a third of my life now and I’m happy that we are finally able to make music together.
The whole concept with collaborations for many songs was set in stone very early even tho I didn’t know who will be on it at the end. Really excited about how this turned out tho.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG FROM THE ALBUM?
If I bracket out the collaborations definitely Purpose.
WHAT WAS THE HARDEST SONG TO MAKE?
Probably Purpose aswell. Took me ages to have it where it is now.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST OR EMBARRASSING MOMENT TO DATE RELATED TO MUSIC?
Oof goooood question! I think my first show ever. 1200 people. Never touched CDJs and Spag Heddy showed me 1h before the show how to use them. Weirdest situation ever hahaha!
WE ARE NEARING TO END OF OUR INTERVIEW BUT I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE YOU THE CHANGE TO SHARE SOMETHING WITH YOUR FANS & NEW LISTENERS. WHAT TO WAIT FROM YOU DURING 2020?
Since my album will be released in June I’ll be quiet for a while after it. I’m working on something in the background which will be my biggest step as musician. Just be patient
