Share

LaMaduzaLaMeduza AKA Krizia Bassanini is a singer/songwriter and MC based in Geneva. Also producing her own tracks, this multi skilled musician has been making waves in the Drum & Bass scene across Europe, with releases on labels such as Black Seeds Recordings and Liquid V. In this interview, we talk to LaMeduza about the importance of keeping her music style eclectic, early music memories, her inspirations, new collaborations and much more.

1. What’s a typical day in the world of LaMeduza?
Singing, singing and mooore singing! I say this because I am a self-employed vocal coach so my days mainly consist of playing scales on the piano and teaching, then at the end of the day I can squeeze in some of my singing.

2. Do you have any party tricks?
Party tricks? hmmm got any whisky? Then we can talk about it a little more 😉

3. What artists were you brought up listening to and how did they inspire you?
Artists like – Fleetwood Mac, The Police, Debussy, Bach, Chopin, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Queen, The specials, Bob Marley, lot’s of Italian classics…were played quite a bit in the house although the list could go on and on…How did they inspire? I guess not to stay stuck in one specific genre when it comes to what I sing or compose. Jazz has always been around – my father plays the trumpet so that’s where my love for scatting and jazz comes from.

EXCLUSIVE THE OTHERS INTERVIEW

The OthersBass Music Movement had the pleasure in meeting up with Dub Police’s longest running artist, The Others.

We talk Sci-Fi, cereal, getting signed oh and of course the release of his debut album ‘Red Planet’.

I have just seen you’ve been in San Francisco, How was your trip?

Yep went to San Francisco to play Ritual Dubstep, it was the first stop of four shows in the US and Canada. It was great, always love coming to SF it’s such a beautiful city and the parties are on point.

Your bio states “He is now the longest running Dub Police artist and has acquired the most releases for the label, pairing a prolific work rate with a high quality watermark on all his releases.” How did you start releasing on Dub Police?

I just handed Caspa a CD one night in London many years ago and the next day he rang me and said he wanted to put out some music of mine. At the time ‘Bushido’ was the track he was really in to, ‘Flapjack’ was picking up a lot of momentum gaining support from the likes of N-Type and Joe Nice so we also wanted that on the release.

EXCLUSIVE DAVID BOOMAH

Share

David BoomahWe catch up with the multi talented singer, songwriter, emcee and showman David Boomah just as his debut album ‘One World Many Cultures’ drops on the super hench imprint V Recordings!

Did you have a theme planned with the album?
No not really I just wrote songs according to the instrumentals that were sent to me, in fact some of the songs on the album are about 10 years old so it’s a mixture of tracks over a long period of time that somehow have formed one body of work and I think they fit well.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?
Aww man that is a hard question….I think there have been many highlights ….performing to an 800 strong Lithuanian crowd who can’t speak english but could manage to sing my songs back to me (music has no language barriers)…performing alongside Congo Natty, Daddy Freddy, Tenor Fly and Code Breaker to about 7000 people in Madrid and also performing with Code Breaker 4.1 at Glastonbury 2010 to a road block tent on my birthday.
