It’s been a while since this blog was born. And since the beginning Interviews have always been an essential part of it. Tips, tricks and wisdoms directly from the guys of the industry. While checking old posts, I recognised that there are Interviews, I nearly forgot. There’s a long list and to pretend them from falling into oblivion, I picked some and added them to this list. Check this list from 2013 and 2014.

Le lac Gentau refletant le Pic du Midi d Ossau (Pyrenees-Atlantiques, France)

The VocalSynth broke the internet (at least in the imaging world),  my dad walks the walk and I started to rethink my approach to music, after reviewing the crazy mixture on my favorite Spotify playlist.

Prince-Tribute-1200x625

Today I am incredibly sad. A legend is gone – maybe the biggest musician, writer and producer of our times. You all heard the bad news, so, I dont have to get into details, just so much and this is very personal:

Prince was the guy I grew up with, the music I listened to on the radio in the 80s, when I was a little kid and the records I loved when I was a bit older in the 90s. I remember watching a documentary about this guy on MTV, freaking out about the fact he has hundreds, maybe thousands of songs ready to roll. It was so fascinating thats someone could play 40 instruments, when I had a hard time with even one. Also I loved the mentality of creating art every day,  crossing styles, pushing bounderies and of course – he always had the hottest women in his videos…sorry , this was big thing for me as teenager. To me The New Power Generation was a musical revolution in the early 90s, the groove, the beat – so many of todays artists still been heavily influenced by this beat, this funky unique guitar sound and 808 grooves.
