Interview with 1STR1C3

Taken from 1STR1C3‘s upcoming “Fastridebadfinish” EP due out February 25th on 51beats here we premiere “rbtrevenge”. Fastridebadfinish is a trip that took place in the car on the way back from a late-night concert. Suddenly, a normal return home becomes an escape, a race against the clock with robots that want to take everything you have. A race where the accelerator pedal is not even carelessly lifted and your boiled mind is now only dealing with bad thoughts due to your survival instinct. You think of your loved ones, telling them that we will meet again somewhere else. We think about the counterpart and what he feels during the chase, trying to identify as much as possible with the latter. You think why is all this happening and why are these robots mad at you? Where does all this anger come from? Until you get to the grand finale, where it doesn’t necessarily end well, where you may have escaped or even hit a wall, effectively losing everything… in any case, you wake up, the ride ends, you pick up the foot of the accelerator and you think about how you got home in such a short time, you throw yourself on the bed with your shoes still on and you fall asleep.
We have had the pleasure of speaking with the producer and this has been the result.

Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music? Was it all internet

I am a 25 yo electronic producer and composer coming from a small town near Milan.
I have always been attracted by the music world, I use to listen to any record coming into my hands and then at the age
of 14 I started making the first melodies thru my laptop studying and watching tutorial in the web

Who have been your main inspirations (both musical and in “life”)? And how have they affected your sound?

I usually change my mind everytime I answer this question, but, I can definitely say that the uk club music culture
changed my way of listening, feeling and making music in general.

After moving to London some years ago, in my two years of experience, I use to going thru record stores every
weekend listening to as more tunes as I can.

My sound is constantly changing every time, because of many factors: life experiences, discovering new music, movies
and tv series, feelings etc.

How would you define your sound?

Electronic, warm and constantly changing

How has your sound evolved so far?

The answer is in question number 2

What can you tell us about your last job? What inspired you? What do you want to convey?

When I start making music from scratch I always have in my mind something, it could be a movie, a vibe, a melody etc.
“Fastridebadfinish EP” come from a trip I made one evening while I was smoking at home after a gig in Milan.

I can’t actually tell you why or how this trip took over me but it happened and to be honest I’m happy about that.

I personally think that this work conveys many different types of moods such as anxiety, melancholy, remorse, fear,
adrenaline, love and resignation.

BTW this is not a project that aims to convey something specific, I think it depends a bit on who and how is listening to
it that makes the difference.

What can you tell us about each song that makes up your latest work? What is hidden behind?

Generally I don’t like to explain the single tracks that make up a work.

In this project in particular, all the songs need each other to make sure that all the emotions and sensations I had inside
while working on the aforementioned project come through.

I had this idea in mind, I started playing, and this is the result.

How are you living the current situation because of COVID? Has your work affected you a lot?

Do you think there is hope? I feel like the underground scene will continue to persist.

These two (almost three) years have been terrible for the music scene in general.
I am a sound designer and, working from home, my lifestyle hasn’t changed that much fortunately.

I think that the underground scene and music in the form of art will never die, for the passion that all these warriors
share in this endless battle

What projects are you working on right now?

In march I’ll move to barcelona for the whole month because of a job.
while I am there, I will try to absorb as much as possible of the culture and vibe that this city has to offer, hoping that
something interesting will come out of it.
