intriguing interviews (II001): ‘Ajgor’
we’d like to say ‘hi’ to a new section, that will be presented on every second wednesday per month, which we named ‘intriguing interviews’.
in this series, we’d like to talk more about ‘the human side of music’. furthermore, also about the producers who are responsible for magic moment ‘a’ or state of agape ‘b’, who are in fact no robots. they are human beings, just like you & you, who wants to tell their stories by creating that mellifluous chord progression or by writing down that significant chorus, which melts your ears & heart away.
so, the story behind the idea is told. let’s focus on the first artist, that we have featured on this new part of the site, our old friend & beatmaker from poland: Ajgor.
so shall we start the interview? we think, we should:
first of all, it’s a pleasure to start the series with a dedicated artist like you. for those, who might not heard about you, could you please introduce yourself?
hello, my name is igor, i’m 19 years old. i come from ‘łódź’ (pronounced: ‘lodsh’), which is a city nearby the capital of poland, ‘warsaw’. i started to create music under the alias ‘Ajgor’.
how did u come to the music?
music has been with me ever since i was a kid. i listened to a lot of different music when i was skateboarding, i even learned how to beatbox. one day a friend of mine just sent me a link to a tutorial where someone was telling the basics of making music in a DAW.
what do you try to convey while writing/composing/producing with your projects?
i’m just trying to express myself.
is your music about to convey feelings, express yourself, transmit ideas, impressions?
i haven’t produced many tracks yet but i think it has always been about the atmosphere, feelings, the transfer of emotions that accompany me somewhere during production or making a remix of a song.
let’s talk about your recent remix of ‘Wolftyla’s’ ‘Feels’ – how did you come over that kind of track and where can we get a copy of it?
it was just like with my remix of ‘Without You’, which has been originally created by ‘Lapalux’, i knew ‘Wolftyla’s’ song before and one day I just simply opened FL Studio, imported the track and remixed it. you can get a copy on my bandcamp-site.
could you tell us something about your beginning, your past?
i started with releasing an EP with the producer ‘Apriljoke’ and then made a few tracks with the beatmaker ‘OLFVN’. in the meanwhile, i did join three collectives: ‘Numerals’, ‘Lethe’ and ‘Czeluść’. it’s cool, because we are all friends, who are willing to help each other to grow. with the time, i started to play some gigs & got signed by the polish label ‘Soho Palace’.
wow, these accomplishments are amazing. can you already reveal something about ‘Ajgor’s’ future?
i’m collaborating now with the polish singer ‘Ja Miron’. she invited me to work with her on her upcoming LP. the next thing will be a song for ‘Soho Palace’s next mixtape. i’m currently working on other remixes as well, yet i’d like to write more original songs. and if the time allows that, finally release an EP in 2017.
sounds promising. do you think it is possible to do music for living?
i think so. a lot of artists do music for a living. and when i start to do it, i’ll be able to say that i fulfilled my dreams.
we’re definitely sure, that you will. to talk about dreams, how does your dream collaboration would look like, or better said, with who you would like to work the most?
there are many artists i would like to work with but if i had to choose i’d say ‘Night Lovell’, ‘Drake’ or ‘Alina Baraz’.
that has been the official part of the interview, yet as we’d like to show the ‘human side’, we did allow to add a section into the section (oh hell, that sounds like something created by the illuminati, huh?), which we just named: ‘Solar’s R/Vapid Ten’. this sec-into-section contains vapid questions, which can be answered by the interviewed artist voluntarily.
so, let’s see ‘Ajgor’s’ answers:
your favorite vegetable?
i don’t like vegetables, but if i have to choose something it might be a cucumber.
your favorite food?
banana or apple?
strawberry or cucumber?
disney or warner bros?
mickey mouse or deadmau5?
i would not be a musician, if…
i didn’t have the passion i have. friends and people that I keep meeting on my way also give me energy to make music.
if i would be a car…
i would be a chevrolet camaro ss ’69.
if i would be an animal…
i would be a koala bear.
be sure to check all the updates of this polish prodigy, his posts on facebook, like his pictures on twitter, give him a follow, a hug to his label, say hi to the collectives & don’t forget to eat some vegetables. ok bye.
if u want to send some cat pictures or simply to say hi, holla at:
the end of the tale, but not of this book.
