Todays artist interview see’s us sit down with the prolific DJego Silber, lets find out more.
Where do we find you now?
I am based in Spain, a very nice small fisher village called Cambrils.
Can you tell us a bit about your new record and how it came together?
It was like mostly. I started to create something new, but with this track I felt directly that I personally liked it from the beginning, so I went on it… like a first time…
Can you describe a moment or experience that initially sparked your passion for music and how it continues to inspire you today?
I felt in very young age that music will be the most important thing in my life. I started to study Bass, Guitar, Flute and Clarinet at the age of 4. When I was 18, I played already in different top 40 bands, to put myself in a safe financial life. Music has been always very important for me. But now, now I really do what I love, as producer and composer of electronic and house music. This is absolutely my passion.
Are there any lesser-known electronic music artists you feel deserve more attention, and why do their work resonate with you?
I am sure that there are many of them, but I don’t listen often to other producers, at this moment I am living very intense in my own music world
How do you maintain a balance between staying true to your artistic vision and adapting to the ever-changing landscape of the music industry?
I think it is not possible to invent the music new. Most of the things are said and played, so I try my best to be myself and find my own style in music
What role does improvisation play in your creative process, and can you share a memorable instance when it led to an unexpected breakthrough?
Every song starts with improvisation and trying, and when my feeling tells me that this is the right one, then I take it and keep on going. Composing is always for me full of unrespectable moments.
Are there any non-musical influences, such as visual art, literature, or personal experiences, that have significantly shaped your work?
Yes of course, for me Karl Lagerfeld was always a great inspiration with his thinking and meaning about art and life
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?
In my live performances I will only play my own music. Mi dream is not to be just a music playing DJ, I want to make a live performance, like a concert, by playing live instruments too. The most essential for a successful show is to be and represent yourself!
What advice would you give to aspiring electronic music artists looking to develop their own unique sound and style?
Go on and practice every day! To continue and to go on is the best way to find yourself and your own sound and style.
Can you discuss the impact of technology on your music, and how you see emerging tools and platforms shaping the future of electronic music?
The thing that I like about electronic music is that, this it is continually growing up, with new elements and sounds and new technology on the producing side, everything is becoming faster and simpler, I like it!
What’s a project or collaboration that you’re particularly proud of, and what did you learn from the experience?
I collaborated with Pascal Feos in young years and also with Brian Eno as Bass player in his band. These collaborations offered me many experience and knowledge. To work with professional people like this inspires you, your whole life.
How do you stay motivated and inspired during periods of creative block, and what strategies do you employ to overcome them?
When I have a creative block and I don’t come forward with a track, I start another one directly, even If I have to delete it the next day because I don’t like it at all. The most important is to be honest to yourself, and to delete something when you hear it next day, clearly, and it is not good.
Whats next for you?
My dream is to push my Record Label: Señorita Records and to put myself in a good position in the electronic and house music scene. And, a new track is coming very soon….
