RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW ISREALI ARTIST NIRØ
Hi Niro, Thanks for joining us today. What made you decide that music is a thing for you?
Well from young age I came from a music background and I really love to play and to jam I learned drums for 12 years also piano for five and to finish it off violin for four years so I really loved what I wanted to do and wanted to take it to the next level and I thought this would be next level to produce and compose my own tracks to release them to the world
Introduce us to you and your musical history?
So my real name is Nir levy I am actually from Tel Aviv and I started producing when I was 15 started from doing like very dark music like dark techno and then some deep and then they came to be in the heart techno stuff and now I wanted to try something new.
I wanted to break my boundaries and do something that will excite me and something that I never heard before on a dance floor so this is when I thought about taking the NIRO project to somewhere else and he when what I came by with is Electro and little bits of spice from house , dark disco etc.
What was life like for you before music?
Well actually all my my life was around music and I was inspired by music and I can’t remember the life before it I just know that without it I’m not will be who I am today
What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?
Well my very first track that I heard that want me to start my composing was actually a titanium by David Guetta and Ch it was a massive track for me and all the big scenes and elements was so beautiful and was orchestrated so harmonically beautiful and so I really love this song and the song that made me go to the Electro slash darker disco vibes was actually captain industrial by a locked club shout out to them they have really groove groovy spaces and punchy kicks and they’re really really cool in in what they do in their production so I really appreciate them and hoping one day to work with them also rest in peace to dima
Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?
I think I’m just now starting my conquest to the higher stages of the industry it’s a tough place to be there’s a lot of competition it’s a healthy competition it’s a good one there’s a lot of really really so amazing artists that we are really fortunate to be with them in the same era they’re ,so I think that I still have time until people will get to know me more but I’m doing one step at a time and it’s so exciting for me I really looking forward for every step to take it and hoping I’m doing my best
Whats the biggest thing you have learned from someone else in the industry?
We have a saying in our label that we we artists need to be together always as one and to support each other and it’s really something beautiful but also we need all always to remember that the industry is tough and it’s a hard place to be and there’s a lot of people and businesses that will try and do money money out of you in unpleasant ways so also we as one but also trust no one
What was the worst experience on stage?
So my worst experience on stage was actually my first experience it was so awful and I was so terrified and scared it was actually in a small club you know where where I live and it was a party for my school and for other school for in the area and I started playing after other couple of deejays it was two AM and 10 minutes in the mix my music volume went down and I didn’t know what happened and for 15 minutes nobody knew how to fix it until the other DJ’s came back and had me to fix it and it was so awful and I just stand there the one with all the people that I want just to have fun and party so they know what to do with them so just everybody start clapping their hands and do like a Capella stuff so it was funny and awful in the same time
What makes you stand out as a band/artist?
I think the things that make me stand out from others is that I don’t like to go into the conventional way I like to make a detour and I like the more avant-garde stuff and like to be like dark stuff and also like the happy and powerful stuff it’s also in my production, there is a lot of heavy synths and heavy sounds but I try to keep it simple and defensible and uplifting however I can so it’s mice of both of the spectrums
I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.
So yeah my new track that called opus is actually something that I wanted to do a long time it was inspired by a lot of great artists like gesaffelstein justice and schwefelgab etc, I really love the atmosphere that it’s creating and the dark synthesis and the base it’s really powerful track that I think can go easily on on the best underground clubs in the world and it can give you a powerful showdown in the club
What was the recording process like?
If I can recall I think it was really fast like the base and the and the drums I did like two nights and then the mix took me like a two weeks so it was really fast I think but I I do it like this like I I like to do much as much as I can fast so more music will be out and people can share it and review it
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?
My biggest learning curve on on writing those tunes was that sometimes the most interesting and powerful things in the truck are the most simple ones and not the most complicated like if you want to do a new sound design or get an atmospheric element that will help your track try to make it simple but clean
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
Just want to say thank you for the spotlight and for the support and keep it up I love to make people dance and happy and joyful I hope to do it for the rest of my life it feels like it’s my destiny and I hope to prove it right and to share my music and love everywhere that I can in the world and hoping that which will reach as many people as I can big love and I will see you in the dance floors
