I’m all good thanks, I’m really happy to be here with you today.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Dream Eater”?
Dream Eater is an hybrid trap, rather experimental track, made with an australian rapper full of talent called Backchat. Dream Eater has been released a few days ago on the compilation “We Are Kin vol.2”. If you haven’t heard about this compilation, I highly suggest you to go and check it out, you’ll find some amazing tracks.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Yes, tough moments that i’ve gone through a little while ago that could have made me lose my faith and a ton of things in my life that I don’t want to loose… The original idea of the track was looking back on this dark, difficult period, which is actually a lot different from what I’m used to produce. The lyrics speak for themselves.
How was the recording and writing process?
As I said before, I started by creating an audio ambiance on FL Studio, a digital audio workstation, without any goal or intention, just to express what I’ve just gone through. Then, I just left myself being carried by my feelings and emotions which led me to a rather dark and powerful draft. I searched for a rapper that could express what I had in me, who could be able to convey his own style with my feelings. I discovered Backchat after a while who catched my attention right away. He wrote the firsts lyrics and recorded them on his own and sent them to me : I fell in love instantly. I was convinced and really blown away, so much that this inspired me even more for the track. From there, the song was finished in 2 days and Backchat had completed his lyrics.
What role does France plays in your writing?
It depends on the style. Generally, France will inspire me more on the message of the music than the style, since it’s my native tongue. But I’ve been inspired by French Electro for a while or French artists that inspired me during my childhood, like Mr. Oizo, Justice or Daft Punk. Sometimes, some atypical places, mostly in nature, have inspired me a lot such as the Colorado Provençal. But, I don’t think that is a big of a deal if I’m not inspired that much by France, that’s why I think I’m more inspired by other countries or places. Sometimes, these places are imaginary.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
Release an album is a difficult format nowadays, a format that I love for everything around the ambiance and atmosphere that you can create with it, but the public tends to stick less to it actually. You know, things have to go quickly, unfortunately for the creative mind kind, people tend to spend less time listening to an album. For Eluun’s start, I focused more on singles, it was also a challenge for me. But I find myself at the middle of the year with way more started tracks than planned, some are finished, and later this year an EP may be released, still.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
As I said I have a few finished tracks, but I still to this day don’t know exactly when they’ll be released. But for some, I think you shouldn’t have to wait for too long !
Known for playing with different style within the dubstep and drum realm – would you be getting out of your comfort zone?
Well this is exactly one of the main point of my name change : being able to experiment new and different things and offer new stuff, more mature and “in-depth”. I avoid staying in my comfort zone, I don’t feel comfortable in it actually, and it doesn’t bring me any motivation or inspiration. Spontaneity, improvisation makes me feel way better and if I does this to me, I suppose my public feels better as well.
Any plans to hit the road?
Well, as Eluun isn’t well know yet, there’s no plans on that at all for now.
What else is happening next in Eluun’s world?
A lot of things, new styles, new perspectives, new feats… I’d like to introduce more video content and perform on stage : that’s all I have to offer you for now!
