After “Refined”, their first release on Thisbe Recordings in April 2021, Radial Gaze is back on the label with “Tetra Seeds”, their new EP.
The two brothers from St. Petersburg, Andrey, electronic musician and producer, mixing and mastering engineer, together with Stas, sound designer, guitarist and theater director, stay true to their identity: on "Tetra Seeds", they offer an irresistible mix of slow techno, ethnic-infused electro and percussive wonders.
The digital EP includes 4 original tracks and 4 remixes by Dominik Marz, Balam, Semodi and label owner Pyrame.
Pressed on yellow vinyl and featuring 3 of the originals as well as 3 of the remixes, the 6-track 12" is a limited edition with amazing art by Maksim Cherny.
We have had the pleasure of interviewing Radial Gaze.
How would you present your work to someone who doesn't know you?
Electronic music project in the styles of indie dance and leftfield techno. I am also a studio sound engineer.
And your last job? Where is it born from? And where do you want to lead?
In order to come to my sound, I have been interested in different styles of music for a long time, from old disco to various techno trends. The original idea was to mix different styles, the sound of different times, as well as instruments from different countries.
At the moment I am exploring new forms and trends in music related to what I am doing.
What message would you like to convey to the public?
The main mood, idea, inspiration. And all this can be conveyed in different ways. We can expand the scope of styles and at the same time not loose relevance.
How did your last project come about?
First of all, I had to leave my main job in order to start taking up only music. The very idea of the project came through understanding what I want and how I would like to implement it. As a result, we have Radial Gaze.
What do you want to transmit in this work? What is the concept behind it?
As I said, the main message is the mood and emotions that I have myself. They change from time to time, but the main concept is a mixture of styles and time jumps in music.
As for your studio, what is it currently made up of?
Since I move around countries and cities quite a lot now, my setup is quite simple and consists of my work computer, studio headphones, a sound card and from time to time studio monitors. I spend a lot of time on sound quality, so I always check the material on good acoustics in the studio.
What is the one instrument you would never get rid of, no matter what?
BIG DRUMS haha
What was the last record store you visited? And what did you salvage from there?
I was in several record stores in Istanbul, I don't remember the exact name, the last one was next to Joy Bilgisayar
Do you have hope for the future of music? How would you like the future of the music industry to be?
I think there is hope. I want the music industry to grow and develop wherever it is possible.
Can you reveal some future projects?
At the moment I have several planned releases of collaborations with different cool guys. As well as several EP from my side project with Antonio 'A-Tweed' called Oblako Maranta.
What makes you happy?
Cool music, good weather, people and satisfaction from your own activities.
