Human 1.0 by Gary Dranow immediately sounds epic thanks to the strong drums and acoustic guitar chords that add dreamy textures to the track's introduction. Later on, the riffs of Dranow and co. become progressively more distorted and the track gradually gets closer and closer to metal. Gary Dranow continues to amaze as an exceptionally versatile artist who doesn't do things the way they used to, and here he shows off his voice while claiming to be the night itself. Later on, the riffs gain immense momentum in an absolutely excellent bridge that builds fortifications around this dark metal atmosphere. I'd like to point out that the abrasive melodies that follow must not only be some of the best melodic compositions Gary Dranow has ever delivered, they're also an excellent way to end this track with a big bang! In short, in "Human 1.0" Gary Dranow ventures into the world of nu-metal and the results are epically powerful.


Cru cru Gary Dranow, it's always a pleasure to have you back for a new interview. How are

you doing?

Hey, thanks for having me again! I'm doing great, thanks for asking. Ready to chat about

whatever you've got in mind!

What is "Human 1.0" and do you believe it belongs in the alternative radio scene?

"Human 1.0" refers to the idea of the original, basic version of humans before any advanced

technology or modifications. In the alternative radio scene, it could represent music and

ideas that are raw, authentic, and not overly processed or mainstream. Personally, I think

"Human 1.0" definitely belongs in alternative radio because it's all about embracing

authenticity and originality, which are key values in that scene.

What do you appreciate the most in the rock n' roll genre?

Well, I've always appreciated the energy and passion that comes with rock n' roll. It's like this

electric feeling that just grabs hold of you and won't let go. Plus, the freedom to express

yourself however you want through music is something special. Whether it's the pounding

drums, screaming guitars, or heartfelt lyrics, there's always something in rock n' roll that

speaks to me on a deeper level. It's like a wild ride that I never want to get off.

What is the biggest decision you’ve had to make as a musician?

The biggest decision I've had to make as a musician was whether to pursue music full-time

or keep it as a hobby while focusing on a different career. It was a tough choice because I

love music, but I also needed to consider financial stability. Ultimately, I decided to take the

leap and commit to music professionally. It wasn't easy, but it's been incredibly rewarding to

follow my passion and make a career out of something I truly love.

What is the biggest mistake you have made within your career to this point?

The biggest mistake I've made in my career so far? Well, I guess it would be waiting too long

to launch my albums. See, I had them all ready in an older version for a while, but I didn't

release them sooner. But you know what? It actually turned out okay because it gave me

more time to really focus on my music. So, maybe it wasn't such a big mistake after all.

How do you balance your time in the studio with other commitments such as a part-time job,

family, admin, etc.?

Well, it's not always easy, but I try to manage my time wisely. I make a schedule that

includes time for my part-time job, family, and all the boring admin stuff. Then, I carve out

specific chunks of time for the studio. Sometimes, it means sacrificing a bit of sleep or

leisure time, but it's worth it to pursue my passion. Plus, I try to involve my family in my

creative process when I can, so it doesn't feel like I'm neglecting them. It's all about finding

that balance and sticking to it as best as I can.

What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

Sure! Before I became an artist, I did a few different jobs. I was a soldier, where I served my

country. Then, I worked in business, handling all sorts of things to make money. And I also

used to be a ski racer, zooming down those slopes! So yeah, before I found my passion in

art, I had quite a mix of experiences.

What do you do in order to relax after a long day of hard work in the studio?

Well, after a long day in the studio, I like to unwind and relax in a few different ways.

Sometimes I just kick back and watch some TV or a movie. Other times, I'll grab a good

book and get lost in a story. And if I'm feeling really stressed, I might even do some

meditation or yoga to help clear my mind and relax my body. Overall, it's important for me to

find ways to decompress and recharge after putting in a lot of hard work.

Do you sing in the shower? If yes, what songs?

Yes, I absolutely sing in the shower! It's like my own little concert in there. I've got a few

favorite songs I like to belt out. There's "Mellow Drama," which is one of my own creations.

Then there's "Golden Child" and "Floating Away," both of which I also wrote. Singing in the

shower just feels so freeing, you know? It's my time to let loose and enjoy the music, even if

it's just me and the shampoo bottles.

Do you agree with the Pigeon?

Well, when it comes to music, I think it's more about personal taste. What I might like, the

Pigeon might not, and vice versa. So, I don't really "agree" or "disagree" with the Pigeon on

music. We all have our own preferences, and that's what makes music so interesting.
