INTERVIEW: SoundLava Interview With “Given Peace”
My name is “Given Peace”, I am a producer from Seattle, Washington. I’ve been producing for about 10 years and I have my debut album out in February. Check me out on SoundCloud!
Q: What got you into music and made you realize that it was your chosen path?
A: As a music producer and DJ, I am constantly seeking new ways to push the boundaries of electronic music and create unique, engaging sounds. I’ve been producing music since 2012 and have been heavily influenced by the rave scene. My debut album, which is set to come out in February, represents a culmination of my love for electronic music and my passion for producing. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it and see what I have been working on for the past 10 years.
Q: Tell us about your new music (Song/EP/Mixtape/Album)? And what’s the story behind it?
A: This remix represents just a small taste of what I have been working on for my new album. My new album incorporates and blends styles from different house genres to create a comprehensive whole. In the next two months, while preparing to release my album, you can expect more remixes and smaller tracks that won’t make my album to be released on SoundCloud.
Q: What makes your music unique? How would you describe it? (genres/sub-genres)
A: As a producer, I am always trying to push the boundaries of electronic music and create sounds that are unique and engaging. I draw inspiration from a wide range of sources, from the rave scene to more experimental forms of music. This eclectic mix of influences helps to give my music its own distinctive sound. Additionally, I spend a lot of time refining my production techniques and experimenting with different sounds and effects, which also helps to make my music stand out. Ultimately, what makes my music unique is my passion for producing and my desire to create something truly original. My debut album will predominantly feature house music, from several different sub genres.
Q: Who are your biggest music influences? And any particular artist/band you would like to collaborate with in the future?
A: I would love to collaborate with the likes of Fred Again. and Fisher. Swedish House Mafia has also been a long time inspiration to me and I hold their music near and dear to my heart.
Q: How long have you been in the music industry?
A: Although I have been producing music for the past ten years, my debut album won’t come out until February.
Q: How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?
A: Balancing my music with other obligations can be challenging at times, but it’s important to me to find a healthy balance. I try to prioritize my music and make sure that I set aside dedicated time to work on my productions. At the same time, I also make sure to spend quality time with my family and friends and take care of any other work obligations. It’s all about finding a balance that works for me and allowing myself the flexibility to adjust as needed. I’ve found that setting goals and being organized can help me to stay on track and make the most of my time.
Q: If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
A: Stay tuned for my debut album out February 2023.
