1.- Hi Miguel, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey, I feel good and I’m happy to be here with VENTS!
2.- Can you talk to us more about your EP “Benasty”?
For sure, Benasty define two faces about my techouse sound, “Benasty” track is the solid fresh groove techouse that I’m making in the last months, sometimes with rap voices or not. This has been the perfect for a ragga voice mixed with a powerful techouse.
On the other side I made Kicksess, a pure dark techouse groove with drops in style techno, using only the kick and baseline to create the energy, the voice make the dark detail for this track.
3.- Did any event inspire you to write this EP?
In the last months I’m playing in a lot of different countries, understanding different ways to interpret the dancefloor with different styles of sound, so i was thinking that maybe was time to change and create something different
4.- Any plans to release a video for the tracks?
We may have a release date soon 😉
5.- Why did you name the EP after ‘Benasty’ in particular?
Normally I try to create not only the music, but also a invented word or phrase that make sense to the track, as it will help to find the track in any searcher in the network.
6.- How was the recording and writing process?
Was very simple, I bought a pack of ragga voices samples of high quality and one week later the magic come, trying to create different beats and baselines this kind of voices work really good with my music
7.- What role does Spain play in your writing?
Spain is my place, and after having played a lot in here it was time to create some music in my hometown, here is where I have the calm and the inspiration surge.
8.- Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Benasty EP was one of my two first creations, a lot of main hours playing in clubs and festivals, where in these main hours the people need music with a lot of energy to keep rising the night, it was time to create something powerful like that.
9.- Any plans to hit the road?
I’m so happy with my situation right now, creating music that works perfectly in my sets and signing some music in big labels like is Benasty Ep on Sola Music is my perfect way to keep growing, hundred gigs in clubs and festivals make me compromising to keep bringing my music to the world.
10.- What else is happening next in Miguel Bastida´s world?
