Continuing to forge his own path, Greg Korra launched Impulz-Lab Records in 2020 & the label has seen a string of releases to date – including ‘Always on the Run’, ‘The Sun Will Rise’ & ‘I Feel Love’.
We caught up with Greg Korra as he touches down with ‘Far Away’ a release which sees the Frenchman showcase a more accessible side of his productions.
T.H.E – Welcome to T.H.E – Music Essentials, Greg! How’s your early Summer taking shape?
Greg Korra – Hi, first of all, thanks for the interest you have in knowing my music. I am glad to do this your interview! The beginning of the summer is going very well with a lot of new things coming up :)
T.H.E – Congratulations on the release of your single ‘Far Away’, when did you first begin work on the track?
Greg Korra – I started working on this track at the beginning of April. I began by looking for a voice and I created a story around it inspired by a track of an English artist named ‘Thom Yorke’ (Radiohead). The track was done in 3 days
T.H.E – When it comes to the song & vocal, what’s the most important thing you focus on?
Greg Korra – It depends on my inspiration and mood at the time. I don’t really have a rule about that. I listen to a lot of music and try to use it as inspiration to create a story.
T.H.E – Can you share with us some of your own journey into the music industry?
Greg Korra – I started mixing almost 20 years ago in different clubs in the south of France. With time, I wanted to launch myself naturally in the creation of my own projects. So I decided to create my own label ‘Impulz-Lab’. I didn’t want to go through labels that for the most part would have brought me nothing or would lead me astray from my own intuition and creative process. Today I have the freedom to create and do musically what I want without worrying about corresponding to this or that label.
T.H.E – How long ago did you launch Impulz-Lab Records?
Greg Korra – I started my own label “Impulz-Lab” 2 years ago
T.H.E – What advice would you offer to other aspiring producers?
Greg Korra – I don’t think I’m necessarily in a position to give advice, although I think it’s very important in the creative process to develop these tracks with a coherent structure. I would say that I do things accordingly to my feeling of the sound and the mood that the voice can set for my song
T.H.E – Who would be a dream artist to collaborate with & why?
Greg Korra – I would love to collaborate with artists like CamelPhat, because I’m a big fan of their music and they are for me a reference today in a certain sound field.
T.H.E – And lastly, what’s next for Greg Korra & Impulz-Lab?
Greg Korra – The next step would be to present something much more original in terms of musical creation, perhaps using different and more sophisticated sounds than what we hear today.
