Interview with RedOwl


This time, we get to know RedOwl, one of the top-class techno artists, and his thought on music in this exclusive interview.

Sick to hell of music, he offers a glimpse into the dark side of everyone, an electronic vision through science fiction, the passage of time, imagination, psychology, cinema and the constant need to look inside…

Where are you from?
Zaragoza, Spain

What is your main genre?

How long have you been making music?
I can’t remember a specific stage of my life without associating it to some kind of music, but I decided to learn how to make my own 4 years ago.

Can you tell us about your latest release and the background behind it?
This February I have released Nexus through Radiator of Sound Records. It is a track that contains a desire for understanding between people at a time where everything seems to be more individualistic than ever, where the superfluous and the frivolous seems to be the news, where there is no deepening in any aspect of life and everything goes too fast.

What do you think of the music industry after 2022?
As I mentioned in the previous question, everything is fleeting and the industry is an important part of that behavior. We need expired products, of fast consumption, to later bring out other similar ones and continue the banquet. You only have to listen to the general radio programs. On the other hand, we ourselves are the ones who feed these needs, so the industry is not entirely to blame, it simply adapts its business and influence capacity to continue selling.

Who is the most influential artist in your life?
Maybe I should tell you some metal band, or the old classical composers. Within electronic music, Prodigy have always seemed huge to me, with that ability to make you have fun, to go straight for the jugular. However, my music doesn’t resemble any of them. It’s hard to say, I have all kinds of musical influences, not only within electronica.

How do you think you differ from other artists?
Someone once told me that he liked it because it seemed to always leave something in the pipeline, a second interpretation or some final surprise. I think it really hit on the feeling I get when making music, where you want to say things without being particularly explicit. That doesn’t differentiate me from others, certainly not from those already mentioned easy radio formulas. I like to say that my tracks are ” Thought provoking beats”.

Who would be your dream collaboration?
Lemmy from Motorhead, but it’s going to be hard hahahaha ( Lemmy, if you read me: you would have laughed too )

What was the first album you bought?
I don’t remember the first one, but I do remember one that I bought in all formats: The Wall, by Pink Floyd. I have it on cassette, CD, LP, VHS, DVD and I probably downloaded it on the net as well.

What is your favorite song at the moment?
Nowadays I listen to Carpenter Brut quite a lot. I would love to make his ” Blood machines Theme” track. Also the EP that Agoria and El Niño de Elche have released in the last months, very elegant electronica with flamenco vocals by El Niño ( highly recommended spanish artist ). Spectacular!

What is your favorite words?
Thought provoking beats

What other hobbies or interests do you have?
I love going to music festivals, traveling, eating, being active and sometimes doing nothing at all hahahaha

Tell us more about your upcoming project?
Right now I’m talking with several indie artists to make a mutual remix album, I have several tracks ready for an EP, in November a track for a very cool project with our friends from Carbon Footprint Music Productions… I’m not bored of course, all the time that work allows I invest in improving my music.

Any comment 
Thank you very much for your interest in the interview and the passion you put in all your projects, you are always very kind and collaborative with indie artists.

We are also grateful to you. will continue to support RedOwl.
