We have another banging podcast for you from two great artists based in Manila/ Phillipines and they also took some time to do an interview with us where you can find out what the guys are up to… Thank you Pav and Ryan – you rock!
1. Lucidflow: How does a creative day look/feel like for you?
Pav – I never know until the day is over. I rarely wake up in the morning and say right I’m gonna nail a track today with a certain theme in my head. The creativity will just flow if it’s right…if it does turn out to be a creative day then I don’t want to go to bed but alas I have no choice because the day job beckons.
Ryan – Sober! :)
2. Lucidflow: How do you hinder yourself in being creative?
Pav – I am a lazy ass! I need a deadline. Without a deadline I don’t meet targets. Time management is key and something I am still learning after all these years ;)
Ryan – When the day job gets in the way… And when I try too hard to create something even if I can’t find an inspiration! It’s just impossible. My mind just goes pffft!!! :)
3. Lucidflow: how do you support yourself in being creative?
Pav – I try and listen to what’s fresh and immerse myself in music from my favourite producers. I don’t really get creative ideas from looking at landscapes or watching the trees sway in the wind…Creativity will flow when it’s ready but I do need something inspiring and that is usually music or a good collaborator like Ryan Pamatmat.
Ryan – I always look at things differently and think how I can make something that already exist, better. I always like to push boundaries and test myself how far deep can I go. I try to innovate and always put a twist in everything that I do which makes it more meaningful once I create something out of it. The possibilities in electronic music are endless.
4. Lucidflow: How did you come across Lucidflow?
Pav – I booked Nadja to play at my club, TIME in Manila but before that she gave some solid support for an EP produced by Ryan on my label, Asia Music. I had known about Nadja for some time as she was doing some work with Darkroom Dubs but it was only towards the end of 2013 that I found Lucidflow.
Ryan – Through my best mate, Pav Parrotte and through Nadja Lind who supported one of my EPs “Awake” on Pav Parrotte’s label “Asia Music”.
5. Lucidflow: Tell us one of your greatest wishes:
Pav – Quit my day job, live in a nice quiet self designed home with a studio and a pool. Have my daughter to grow up knowing how to handle this sometimes awful world and for my family, friends and I to live happily ever after…… and to be stinking rich!!
Ryan – to touch people’s lives with music I create.
6. Lucidflow: If you had an infinite amount of time and money what would you do?:
Pav – Make music and travel…..easy options but the truth :)
Ryan – Quit my job and buy a beach house in the Bahamas… Build a proper studio and make more tunes!
7. Lucidflow: Anything else you would spread to the Lucid world?
Pav – Check out our label www.asiamusic.co – we deliver the finest House and Techno from Asia.
Ryan – Peace, love and music!
