Todays Miami Encode artist interview see’s us chat with Daerya and Leo after their recent release “DNA” was on repeat in our office for the early summer! lets find out more about them.
Where do we find you now?
We’re just hanging out in our studio, Dealing with synthesizers ! We’ve been concocting a fresh batch of beats for our upcoming releases, exploring every nook and cranny of our sonic universe,
Can you tell us a bit about your new record and how it came together?
For this EP we decided to take a leap into house and techno music ,These two tracks are our first postcards from this trip, a taste of the rhythm-driven world we’re currently exploring.
Can you describe a moment or experience that initially sparked your passion for music and how it continues to inspire you today?
Well, our relationship with music started way before we could probably spell our names correctly. Daerya’s childhood was steeped in piano keys and melodies, with a dash of singing, while Leo was busy wrestling with the cello, serenading the guitar, and tinkering with the piano.
It like an engine always pushing forwards .
Are there any lesser-known electronic music artists you feel deserve more attention, and why do their work resonate with you?
Currently, we’ve been immersing ourselves in the dark disco world and two artists who’ve caught our ear are Damon Jee from France and Badwolf from Mexico. While they might not be ‘lesser-known’ in the traditional sense, we believe their work deserves a dance floor of its own!
How do you maintain a balance between staying true to your artistic vision and adapting to the ever-changing landscape of the music industry?
Maintaining a balance between our artistic integrity and the practical realities of the music industry is a nuanced process. As independent artists in the modern era, we’ve found ourselves wearing many hats. From learning about marketing strategies to managing social media, these tasks are time-consuming but critical components of our journey. It’s a challenging landscape, but one we navigate with determination, understanding that this is a necessary part of making our music heard in today’s digital age. It’s all about balance and perseverance.
What role does improvisation play in your creative process, and can you share a memorable instance when it led to an unexpected breakthrough?
In our creative process, improvisation isn’t just a technique, it’s a mindset. We embrace our hardware synths and modular gear, tools that invite a fair amount of unpredictability. These ‘mistakes’, or as we prefer to call them, ‘happy accidents’, often become the very essence of our tracks.
But sometime they are just mistakes ..
Are there any non-musical influences, such as visual art, literature, or personal experiences, that have significantly shaped your work?
Absolutely, visual art plays a significant role in our creative process. We believe that music and visuals share a symbiotic relationship, each enhancing the other to create a more immersive experience. We’re deeply involved in creating our own visuals for music videos and live sets, seeing it as an extension of our artistic expression.
How do you approach the challenge of translating your recorded music into engaging live performances, and what elements do you consider essential for a successful show?
Translating our studio work into live performances is a bit like solving a fascinating puzzle. It requires a different mindset, a shift in concentration, and a lot of preparation. When we compose our tracks, we keep our live performances in mind, designing our music in a way that allows us to recreate it in real time using our gear.
What advice would you give to aspiring electronic music artists looking to develop their own unique sound and style?
Just play music .
Can you discuss the impact of technology on your music, and how you see emerging tools and platforms shaping the future of electronic music?
Absolutely, we find ourselves in a rapidly evolving landscape powered by the wheels of technology, electricity, and informatics. This whirlwind of change isn’t just reshaping the world around us, it’s revolutionising the music too. As artists, we’re not merely observers in this transformation, we’re active participants.
We believe that it’s an artist’s role to question, explore, and reflect upon these revolutions, shedding light on them through different prisms. These technological shifts don’t just provide us with new tools for creating music, they present us with themes, ideas, and questions that inspire the very essence of our artistic expression.
What’s a project or collaboration that you’re particularly proud of, and what did you learn from the experience?
Our current project is our pride and joy, almost like our baby. We’ve learned so much from it, from the thrill of success to the humble pie of mistakes. It’s like our own ‘choose-your-adventure’ book, where even the plot twists teach us something valuable. Can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds!
