Hi Vaski, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Ive been great! Thanks for having me.
Can you tell us more about the story behind your track ¨Ex Machina¨?
It’s inspired by the movie of the same name. One of my favorite movies of recent years. Its about Artifical Intelligence relating to romance, I don’t want to give anything away, but If you like scifi movies you should definitely see it. I feel the track portrays the vibe of that movie.
The single comes off your new album Night Session – why taking so long?
I’m not going to put something out unless I’m happy with it!
What´s the story behind the title?
I feel my music is best when listened to at night. I also wanted to make an album with a variety of different sounds and styles. Some of the songs were started a long time ago and only finished now for this album. I felt the word “sessions” conveyed that its more then one thing, its more then one idea. This isn’t a trap or dubstep album, its a Vaski album.
In the press release it states that with this album showcase the real Vaski – so this is the album that in some way would basically set the tone of forthcoming materials?
Absolutely. Ive found my style and I know what Im contributing to the world. Ive done a lot of experimenting and I know where I’m at creatively now.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was great, some of the songs Ive had on the backburner for a long time, knowing they were for something, but not what it was. Ive always wanted to do an album and always known it wasnt time.
The album features few great talents – did you handpicked these talents?
I have and had a lot of other stuff I’ve worked on with other people, and it just came down to my vision, of what the album was and what was going to work. Some of those songs will come out this year, and some won’t be anything more then something for my DJ sets.
What did they brought to the table?
Amazing melody and vocals, both Anna and Sara are incredible people and they contribute some beauty to my otherwise intense and aggressive songs.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, we are working on tour dates as we speak!
