- ENGLISH INTERVIEW -

Festival Season (FS): Hi Mazare, thank you for joining us! First of all, we hope you, your friends and family are okay during these times. How have you spent the last year and how are you now?

Mazare (M): Hi guys, and thanks for having me! Me and my family are all doing good, even though we are starting to feel the weight of the situation like everyone else. Fortunately, writing and producing music helps a lot with keeping your head busy and focused, which I think is more important than ever nowadays.

FS: Looking back at your work in 2020, we've seen that despite the circumstances, you've excelled. First for your incredible remixes to Potions and Back To U. I remember when SLANDER broadcast their Show on Shrine LA and then they showed the Potions remixes. When they mentioned your name, people went crazy because you were one of those who had remixed it. How is your relationship with SLANDER, Said The Sky and JT Roach?

M: Ahah, thank you! As many other artists, I tried my best to stay active and not let myself down. If you manage to endure through moments like this and you keep working on your craft, you will inevitably be presented with great opportunities like remixes, collaborations or the chance to release on your dream label! Since the remixes, I've been talking quite a lot with Slander, and I might or might not be releasing something on their new label Heaven Sent this year.

FS: After remixing Potions, you had the opportunity to remix another one of SLANDER productions in collaboration with William Black and they premiered it on Virtual Vibes (Medusa Stage). When I heard it live, I tweeted it and I didn't know whose remix it was and I remember you liked it, and then I said, okay, it's from Mazare. Once again, everyone went crazy with you again. How were you feeling during the stream, and did you know that SLANDER would be premiering your remix during the set?

M: I didn't know they were going to play it, it was an incredible surprise! I remember I completely freaked out and started sending the video to all my friends. I was pretty excited!

FS: Currently, you just released the first song of your upcoming EP through Monstercat. For a few years you have experimented with the sounds of Rock and in collaboration with Bloodhounds you have release 'Wake Up'. Will the EP be focused on these sounds or has it only been on this song?

M: As some people might already know, I am a big fan of rock music in all its forms and shades, and the idea behind this EP was to experiment with as much of them as possible. So all the tracks on this record have a lot of rock elements woven into them.

FS: Personally, I am very happy to see you release an EP. I have followed your work for a long time at Monstercat. What can we expect from the EP and when will we know more details about it, such as the title?

M: Glad to know you've been following my work on the label, thank you! This EP is the meeting point between my heavier side and my melodic one, so you can expect a lot of variety in sounds, themes and vibe.

FS: There will be four more songs correct? Will they be solo or will there be any more collaborations like in the first one?

M: Correct, the EP is composed by five songs in total, and all of them are collaborations with bands or singers. I'm not much into instrumental music honestly!

FS: Apart from this EP, will you be releasing more tracks this year?

M: Definitely, and a lot! Keep an eye open.

FS: Who would you like to collaborate with? And being honest, could that collaboration happen?

M: There are a ton of artists I look up to, in the DnB panorama and outside. On the softer side, I would love to work on something with Seven Lions, Trivecta, Blanke, Last Heroes, Jason Ross and Mako just to name a few. For something harder, I would definitely love to collaborate with Reaper, The Bloody Beetroots, Bossfight, Muzz, Sullivan King. Actually, both lists are almost endless, there are so many great artists out there! Only time will tell if I could join forces with any of them.

FS: What hobbies do you have apart from music?

M: I am a big Star Wars and Lego fan and collector, I love playing videogames, reading books and drawing. I'm a bit of a nerd, I know ahah.

FS: If you didn't dedicate your life to music, what would you do for work?

M: I would definitely be doing something tied to art in some way; maybe a professional animator, or a freelance designer. I don't see myself stuck in a 24/7 job for all the rest of my life!

Thank you very much for your time Mazare, you are welcome whenever you want and we are eager to hear your EP!
