Nitepunk just released his first EP through legendary Never Say Die record label! He has gained huge amount of support from artists like Zomboy, Slander & NGHTMRE, Effin and countless other heavyweights. Read the interview below!
Hi Nitepunk! How are you doing?
Doing pretty good, living pandemic :))
Before you started producing music you were a dancer in Tbilisi, Georgia. What was the “spark” what made you stop dancing and move on to making dubstep?
Music had infinity possibilities for me, not that dancing is limited, but also the fact that it would be created and be out in the world for everyone had more value to me. It was like a calling that I had to grow in this field and explore/discover. I still dance and always do, I think its very natural and primal part of me and isn’t going anywhere haha!
How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
In the beginning it was really hard I think for all of us because of uncertainty. Music felt secondary for a moment and I had to battle through those blocks and get back to my own creative space where I don’t think about the business side of it. Right now at least getting lost into new ideas and processes is really making me feel better regardless of everything that’s happening.
You released an EP called “Red Turbulence” through Never Say Die label. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
All the tracks were written on a different timeline and we’re not really supposed to be an EP. But now that I think about it, I think it was the best decision to put it all together. All the tracks were written though the last 3-4 years, reworked, reproduced etc. so it kinda wrapped up and released all those different periods altogether.
It’s always very visual to me when it comes to music, so I wanted to really describe the mood and vision with these tracks. So me and my (shout out to @cbu3d & @iamgogokhia ) visual team we worked hours and hours everyday to create all the visuals that came with the EP. one of the best times during 2020 and not only :))
What is your favorite song from the EP?
I really love them all but I think Red Turbulence really stands out of me. It really drives lots of emotions in me. There is the feeling of fear, aggression, temporary serenity and I feel that every time I listen to it, that ones really special 🙂
Any advise for up & coming producers?
What is your message through your music, what is your sound that will make that message loud and clear? I think that should be the most important priority above everything else. Don’t wait for labels or be wrapped up in the politics and just focus on artistic development. You will meet the right people 🙂
Who do you hope to work with in the future, if you could name top 3 producers/artists to work with and why?
I am super curious and excited when I think what would happen if I worked with Timbaland, Skrillex and Joyryde. First of all I am a big fan of their music and one of the reasons is that I appreciate their freeform approach to music, no theory or genre or this or that matters.its all about the groove, bounce, and feeling and excitement of the unexpected. The way they are going for the feeling and the attitude is very natural and expressive and that’s what I’m trying to do with my music as well. I hope one day 🙂
Would you like to share something else with the followers of Let The Bass Get You?
We are going through lots of big changes, lots of things are coming to the surface that we’re facing right now. As much as it hurts, I think it is necessary to go through all that, see the issues for the better changes and better future. We’re gonna be ok 🙂
