Cybernetic Express is an exciting new talent I discovered who is signed to Rubber Records. I love what I had heard and thought an interview was a must. So read on and find out more.
1. How did the project form?
It started by me just playing around in my home studio and seeing what came of it, as it all transpired quite naturally as i never really had to think about. From the outset i had a concept for this project in mind, which made every decision a lot easier as it felt i had some sort of boundary to what cybernetic express is.As it all just sort of flowed. My initial aim was to make some fun music that doesn’t take itself to serious whilst getting a chance for myself to play all the instruments without having to compromise for anyone. It was pure self indulgency at its finest, as i plugged in all my instruments and just went from one instrument to another experimenting with what worked whilst purely enjoying the whole process.
2. How did you get signed to rubber records?
I had dealt with them previously and it feels a bit like home for me at rubber
3. Who have you enjoyed playing with recently?
4. How did the name came about?
I love the old funk band names such as bt express, as the cybernetic bit is the future and the express is taken from the old school, which sums up the bands sound of trying to make the old fresh all over again.
5. What inspires you when writing music?
I’m definitely inspired by early italian disco and synth disco which often has a bit to much melody. I also love vocals which have such a strong euro accent that often you cant even tell they are singing in english.The cheesier the better.I absolutely love all the crazy synths and sounds that were developed during italo disco’s peak period of the late 70’s and early 80’s.
6. What is the new song about?
‘love rocket’ is about joining the cybernetic express on a ride to save the earth from cyber terror.
7. How has social media helped you as an artist?
Its great for getting independent music heard beyond your own borders and getting it into the land of cyber space.
8. What is next for yourself?
Getting the live band together and having to work out who plays what and who brings the oranges for half time.
9. If you could have any body into a video clip who would it be?
Michael Jackson doing a dance routine with some mad cyborgs/robots as backing dancers.
