ARTIST INTERVIEW: CRONAM



Interview


1. Cru cru Cronam, what first got you into music?

I started with Djing early in my my life. I mean even as a kid I used the old tape decks of my father to cut different parts of different music together, not gonna mention which music I used lol. Somewhat I always liked to mess around with music :)

Through Djing and HipHop I entered the world of Scratching and Turntablism. I trained a lot and learned lots of different scratch techniques. Turntablism also got me interested into sampling and Beat Making. From there it just got more and more complex. I learned synth theory, sound mixing etc. I Taught myself how to set up and use modular synths, playing Drums. What I can say is that the spirit of Turntablism, creating sounds live and improvising wisely is still an integral part of my music.


2. What is "Decompression"?

The "Decompression EP" is a milestone for me, a dedication of my exploration of the deep and dubby side of my music. I worked on very experimental releases beforehand and I finally felt it was time to decompress my Artist self, going back to my musical roots of bass music and create a release which fits the deep dubstep genre but at the same time push its boundaries. By combining my production techniques such as Modular Synths, Drum Machines and Turntablism the aim was to create a unique raw sound which can be performed live as well.


3. Who is your favorite electornic musician?

Hard to name one, here are some of my fav. Producers: Kode9, Pinch, Kryptic Minds, Mala, Youngsta


4. Can you name 3 electronic records that you absolutely adore?

Kode9 + The SpaceApe - Memories of the Future, Noise & Foreign Beggars - I am Legion, The Bug - London Zoo


5. What are your feelings on Daft Punk?

Legendary Robots ;)


6. What triggers your nostalgic feelings?

Vintage games such as the Revenge of Shinobi. Used to play it on the Sega Mega Drive console as a Kid.


7. How do you spend your time?

When I’m not in the studio making music, I do software engineering by trade and enjoy doing sports such as climbing.


8. What’s your favorite movie?

Akira


9. What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?

Time & Energy! Finding the time and energy to focus on music plus organising artist promotion and shows.


10. Do you agree with the Pigeon?

Mmmh let’s see, I think Pigeons are quite peaceful so not much to loose here. I agree ;)


Review

Check out the new original EP: "Decompression" by Cronam!

"Decompression", the title track of the EP, is an excellent mood settler, preparing us to witness an abrasive experience that privileges weathering. The industrial erosion continues with intriguing progressions that transport us to a mechanic's workshop where . Cronam is committed to pushing the boundaries of experimental music, especially when it introduces metallic textures. There's no doubt that there's a storm of grey emotions here to be decompressed and released after Cronam builds up immense tension and distortion in his mesmerizing synthesizers. On the other hand, although it's still just as abstract, it's much more playful, even venturing into spatial details. To finish off these edgy soundtracks, "By All Means" closes this audacious EP at high speed and with tons of tension still to release. If it were a movie, it would end with a cliffhanger!


The Pigeon added the new single Beep Bop Gems playlist on Spotify.
