5 Questions with Matoma
_______________________

1. What inspires or motivates you?

It’s a difficult question to answer, however I have to say that the motivation comes from inside. My passion for music and the feeling I get when I make it. The inspiration can be anything. Especially I get inspiration from the nature and from emotions. I try to capture this when I make my music.

2. What most inspiring thing a listener of your music told you?

One sent me a message saying he could die happy after he listened to my Old Thing Back remix. That was a powerful statement, and I felt that my music really had an impact on someone’s life.

3. Does a specific state of mind or mood generate your best work?

Yes, I have to be at peace (not stressed out) and happy. Sometimes it can take a few hours to get there, and then I just play around with the piano until I get into that state where I am connected with my inspiration.

4. What’s next for yourself?

I love to make music, and hope I get to work with some talented vocalists in the studio and produce an original song. I also enjoy traveling and playing at parties, and would love to visit every continent J

5. Anything else you’d like to say?

Thanks to all of my fans who listen to my music, supports me, and come to see my shows. You guys mean everything to me.

5 questions with Duett
_________________

The fact that everyday is an opportunity to create new music that didn’t exist the day before, and working with other artists you can learn from. And coffee?

What most inspiring thing a listener of your music told you?

The most inspiriting thing is that people actually take time to listen to my music, that’s all you can ever ask for. If they say something cool about you too, then that’s a bonus.

Does a specific state of mind or mood generate your best work?

I find I work best when I’m not grounded in one place. I like to take my laptop and work on music in different places, it gives you a fresh outlook, rather than spending every day in the same room. Obviously you have to do a certain amount of the production process at the studio, but the ideas flow for me when I’m out and about.

What’s next for yourself?

I’ve been building a base of artists and remixers at my label - Modal, so over the next few months we’re releasing a compilation of the best tracks and remixes we’ve worked so far, and then looking at releasing an album of my own work at the end of the year.

Anything else you’d like to say?

Check out one of my new projects ‘Duett’, its a synthwave/chillwave album, but you can hear my usual inferences and sounds on there too. https://soundcloud.com/duettmusic

Q&A with Nori>


What inspires or motivates you?

Love of music and the passion to create or express something that people can relate to. I want to help understand, connect, and heal people through music.

What most inspiring thing a listener of your music told you?

I had a listener tell me once that my lyrics and music was describing exactly what she was feeling at that moment. It was wonderful to be able to express and relate to someone through music. Now we both know we’re not alone.

Does a specific state of mind or mood generate your best work?

I tend to work best when I feel extreme emotions. Particularly a profound sadness or a sudden realization and understanding of emotions and situations.

What’s next for yourself?

After the dust settles from my recent move I would like to discover and create new sounds and maybe work on putting out a solo EP.
Anything else you’d like to say?
