May 8, 2020 Interview with producer Jaime & vocalist Sherly

Interview with producer Jaime & vocalist Sherly

Music producer Jaime is known for his forward-thinking production skills, switching between future bass, electronic and touches of hip hop and R&B, Jaime has worked as music director, producer and drummer for some of the biggest names in the German-speaking European markets, including R&B and hip hop artists Cassandra Steen.

While rising vocalist and songwriter Sherly is heavily influenced by alternative R&B ballads and early 2000s aesthetics, encompassing elements of Nao, Ashanti, Amerie and Lianne La Havas.

What are some of your earliest memories of music?

We’ve always been music addicts since our early childhoods. Sherly: I grew up listening to a lot of RnB and Hip Hop like Brandy, Whitney, and Tupac with my mother and aunts. These influences are deeply rooted in my present style. Jaime: I was always drumming on anything I could find. So the pans and pots from my grandma had a hard life. This vibe developed over the years… that´s why I´m a drummer and music producer today.

Take us through your songwriting process. Are there any particular steps you take when putting music together?

Every single song starts differently. Sometimes Jaime hits some interesting chords. Sometimes there is a topic that I come up with. Sometimes you got one catchy hook line that is the fundament of the song.

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, which do you prefer?

Sherly: I love to play live! To connect with the audience and being able to move people with the voice is such a good feeling and very special to me. 

Jaime: For me, both worlds are very important. I won´t miss playing live getting direct feedback to your art. I love seeing the audience freaking out! But rather I won´t miss all the studio work. Playing live is the “don´t think, just let it flow” part of our job. And the studio work is about thinking a lot what you would give to the people, jamming on synth and drums for hours… simply lose yourself to find great sounds and topics!

What is the most memorable response you have had to your music?

Sherly: My first concert. A lot of my songs talk about personal events and experiences. To share those intimate thoughts with an audience for the first time was so exciting and unforgettable. 

Jaime: For me it´s the fact that all the response and support make it happen to be just a musician for the last years. I’m doing music almost every day working for my project or other artists. I think this is a big gift and every single day a new memorable response!

If you could put together a radio show, what kind of music would you play?

Sherly: I wouldn’t always play the newest releases but a collection of songs that give you chills.

Jaime: Just music nobody else would play in a radio show… 😀 From Amon Tobin over weird Flume tracks to The National… Simply to show the people that we have some really amazing art out there!

Name five artists and their albums who would appear on your radio show

Sherly: 

Snoh Aalegra – ugh, those feels again

Ama Lou – DDD

Anderson .Paak – Ventura

Definitely Kaytranada – 99.9.% He is in my Playlists for years now!

Solange – A Seat at the table

Jaime:

Flume – Hi This Is Flume

Amon Tobin – Isam

Baauer – Aa

Chance The Rapper – Coloring Book

The National – Boxer

What would you like to achieve with your music? What does success look like to you?

Jaime: It would be totally awesome to get a nice international standing in this business. With my solo project but also as a producer! Playing some big Festivals every year and a big tour to every album release. This must not be a big stadium tour. It would be totally cool to play locations with 1500 people but always sold out!

Sherly: Success can look very different. It can be a number one chart entry or a Grammy. But my biggest goal is to play at the most renowned music festivals for RnB music with other artists that I admire.

One last thought to leave your fans with?

Stay safe and healthy!!!

April 16, 2020 Producer Kayobe radiates with new album, Islands To Bridges

Producer Kayobe radiates with new album, Islands To Bridges

Inspired by a varied bunch of artists including Daphni, Thom Yorke, DJ Shadow, Frank Ocean, Caribou, Bon Iver, Thundercat, Foals, FKA Twigs, Björk, Portishead, James Blake, and Nick Hakim. It is no wonder that Kayobe’s sound is highly individualistic. His latest album showcases his uniquely adaptable flow and arrangement of sounds.

The site A.Room talks about Kayobe’s new album, “ Kayobe is a self-taught sound engineer, teaching himself the tricks of the trade and creating his unique sound in the process. The entire album carries chillwave and deep house characteristics, however, each song differs in mood, texture, and energy. The album overall presents an ambient flow that is easy on the ear and mind.” Sub Scape share their thoughts as well, “Featuring elements of chill wave and deep house within each track, he manages to create a unique world in each of his songs with his elixir of electronic and mystical and ambient textures.

Kayobe adds, “ “Islands to Bridges was written and recorded on three different continents and was inspired by the sights and sounds around me. There were phases during the creation of this album when I was feeling more solitary (islands), and phases when I was feeling compelled to connect more deeply with others (bridges). There are more energetic party tracks, and more subdued chillout tracks – I hope they take you on a journey from wherever you are to wherever you want to be.”
