Sound Quelle reflects back on 2022, debut album “Tarazed”, musical influences and more.
Aditya – Hello, we’re glad to have you for this interview. How was the last year for you?
Sound Quelle – Last year was just crazy, I toured almost all of my home country, Russia, and visited several countries in Europe… Also I finally finished my album TARAZED!
Aditya – Your debut album ‘Tarazed’ came out last week, how do you feel about that?
Sound Quelle – I am very glad that it came out, I have been moving towards this for a long time! I have given all I have to this particular album during the last 2 years: it contains all my experiences, mood swings, ups and downs, this is kind of brief history of my life, which I conveyed through music :)
Aditya – What’s your creative process like? How do you begin to write music?
Sound Quelle – Usually everything happens differently, but basically, all my work I start with chords, and if I like them, then I continue to work on the arrangement and everything else
Aditya – How long did it take you to to produce this album? From scratch to the master.
Sound Quelle – I spent a lot of time on this album, for 2 years I tried to find time every day to work on it.
Aditya – Off the 14 tracks, which is your favorite and why?
Sound Quelle – My favorite track from the album “Sound Quelle & Tailor – Where We Should Be”. That is because I usually write music in my studio without leaving it, but this time the track was completely written while traveling, during my vacation in Europe. This is a very good experience, and I really liked it and conveyed the atmosphere in which I was merged into during the trip.
Aditya – Who are you influences and why?
Sound Quelle – I am inspired not only by music, but by everything that is creativity, it can be some kind of dancer or film director, my horizons must be very broad in order to be inspired and create something interesting. But if you take music, then there are some artists that I really like and thanks to which I started making electronic music, these are: Jamie XX, Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Hans Zimmer.
Aditya -You’re supported by artists such as Above & Beyond, Nora En Pure, and more. How do you feel about that?
Sound Quelle – I am always glad for any support for my music, but it is especially nice when you are supported by accomplished and great artists who have already left their mark on history, this is very motivating.
Aditya – You’ve amassed over 10 millions streams on Spotify, how do you feel about that?
Sound Quelle – I’m very excited about this and I hope to have even more streams in the future.
Aditya – What do you look forward to in 2023?
Sound Quelle – This year I will be working on new tracks and my new project Krasa Rosa, as well as preparing a live performance for my Tarazed album, and I hope to go on a world tour with it!
Aditya – Lastly, what’s your favourite meal?
Sound Quelle – My favorite dish is Ramen with cheese :)
