Actualizado: 14 oct 2022

Chromatic club have the pleasure to sit down and chat with Mebara Sao ahead of thier latest release on the amazing compilation Boxon Makes Me Sunny. Lets find out more...

Can you tell us a little about your experience and your background in the music business?

Music is for me a passion before being a business. I come from the corporate world and the tech industry where I was limited to express my emotions and my creativity. This is why I started a career as a music producer and DJ. It was a dream I wanted to achieve.

Where are you from? do you feel that has a big impact on your sound?

I am from Belgium and I have roots from Cameroun. There’s always an African touch in my music, it can be vocals, percussions, grooves. Music is for me a way to reconnect with my soul and to explore a side of me that was hidden since a long time. It’s also a nice way to connect with people !

What artists and genres do you enjoy most right now?

Definitely afro house that I enjoy mixing with melodic house. Music is like energy. So I am very sensitive to spread positive energy when I am playing as a dj. Some of my favorite artists are Themba, Vanco, Rampa, &ME.

What is the story behind your new release? how did it come together?

I created this track during a very challenging period of my life as I was leaving the company I worked for during 16 years, my whole world was collapsing and I had to reinvent myself. So this track is about tomorrow that will be better than today. It was also an opportunity to collaborate with fantastic people like Stan from Outrance, Cyprien Marzano the remixer and Julien Minet from Boxon Records. They all decided to trust me and give me a chance ! Big thank you to them !

Has your sound changed a lot in recent years?

Not sure, I would say that it’s like everyday life, what you are dealing with will reveal different part of your sensitivity.

Do you feel you can have a more experimental sound in the modern scene?

Yes definitely, music is freedom, so as long as the goal is to express who you are, it becomes by default experimental.

We all know that the digital revolution has affected sales, but has it affected creativity?

Yes it does. It opens the doors of music production. It makes it more accessible and allow you to do great things even if you have limited skills, as long as you overcome the barriers of your fears and the judgment of people.

Can you tell us what's next for you?

I am working on my EP. I have few tracks ready that I am testing on the dancefloor ! I am also developing my project Massaï Club, to promote diversity trough music. On top of that I am moving to Paris, hoping that this will create new opportunities.
