Youel - Interview

“Feel the Fall” is your first single from your EP which has just been released. How does it feel?
The band and me have been self releasing music for years, but never with the support of a publisher behind us. So it definitely feels like an achievement, tinged with nerves for how it's received...

You already got great support from big names like BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Introducing. Do you feel any pressure coming along with being in the public eye now?
I wouldn't say we're in the public eye yet! The only pressure I feel is from myself to keep up the momentum, and to get better with every release. 

Do you have any plans to take your music on the road at some point and if yes, where can we see you?
We'll be gigging around London over the next few months; dates and venues coming up soon...

If you guys could collaborate with an artist, who would you choose?
Well as I write these answers I'm listening to Radiohead- and I love Thom Yorke's collaborations with Bjork and PJ Harvey. I think he'd probably tell me where to get off, but if I'm choosing then that's who I'd go for! The rest of Radiohead can absolutely come along too.

What are your plans after releasing your EP? Are you working on an album?
We're working on another EP. 4 tracks is a really nice amount to work a particular sound into. We want to keep exploring different ways of combining the more guitar based indie sound with a really inventive, fresh electronic sound. The EP we just released is very electronic focused, whereas I'm keen to fill the tracks with more layers of guitar, and maybe work in real drum kits to the production. 

In case people want to stay up-to-date with you. Where can they best find you?
Music wise- the soundcloud, gig wise- twitter, and for visual stimulation- instagram

Matterz Live: Shaodow – Album Launch @ Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

Listen to ShaoDow's single 'Accent' ft McLean
Shaodow’s concert at Hoxton last Sunday was dope. Being a part of this was like a rave party in the hip-hop scene, strange to say it like that but it’s the best way to describe the feeling of the night. 
When Shaodow hit the stage, the audience went crazy. The opening was really impressive as he started his performance with some techniques inspired by Kung Fu. For those of you who do not know his story, Shaodow was taught Kung Fu as a teenager in China and the martial art has marked his life. Inspired by Shaolin’s way of life and theories, he tried to introduce all these elements to his performance (giving new perspectives) and many parts of the show referred to these techniques, creating a more sophisticated ambiance. 

Shaodow says that his new album is ‘the culmination of 2 years of hard work, creativity and career progression condensed into audio form and then thrown at you like a Ninja Star.’ So true! He prepared distinctive …

Paris King Matterz Interview

Hi Paris! Thank you for taking the time to talk to us. How are you today?
Im amazing thanks and I'm looking forward to Christmas and having a great time promoting my new track "My Addiction" which is out on January 27th! 
You are about to release your song ‘My Addiction’. How does it feel?
Exciting- in a word! But more than that I just feel really grateful that I am able to share the music and video with everybody. I spent years as a kid dreaming of releasing music and to be actually doing it really is a dream come true! 
Can you tell us a little bit more about the backstory of ‘My Addiction’?
Ofcourse! the track is about addiction to anything. Drugs,sex, alcohol, love, the lot! its more about the emotions that being addicted to something convey instead of a dependence on anything or anyone in particular. It depends on how it resonates with the listener as to what it relates to.
Besides working on your new music are there any hints you can share with us about possible future …
