‘Orbit’ is the title track for Komo B’s debut EP on EPM music. We present a short interview below:
1. You’ve been collecting records and mixing for some years now. What inspired you to begin and what has been the most memorable thing along the way?
Yes indeed. It is all about the music. I grew up in Maastricht and there were squat parties with different music like techno, electro, acid, deephouse, disco etcetera… So, it were the local DJs that inspired me to start playing records and buying synths and drummachines. The squat parties at Vendex were memorable. After, there were others like 10daysoff in Gent but can’t say really which one is the most memorable.
2. What was the inspiration for taking the leap into producing your own music? Was it a straightforward process?
I was already playing trumpet and piano when I got into electronic music. I just wanted to explore the (new) electronic sounds of synthesizers, effects, drummachines etcetera and to create. So yes, it was a straightforward process and still is.
3. What are your hopes for the future? Musically or otherwise.
I hope to make some more EPs, records and an album. I would like to do some radio shows and to continue DJing as well.
4. What is your message to the world? What do people need to know?
Dance like a bird
Don’t judge someone
