Poka himself

Ladies and Gentlemen let me present to you once again, or I should better say: the first time w/ an eye on details, POKA !

The most of you know yet he is from Athens, Greece. This is only one small information about him, ’cause the fact that matters is his music! I love each and every masterpiece he created. And I’m not the first who realized his talent, so he already was on BBC Radio 1 ! Belive me I don’t exaggerate when I’m saying: This guy knows how to make samples even better !

Honestly he is one of my favourite musicians and I do not understand why he is still unsigned. Listen to his music and you will hear and FEEL that music matters ! At the moment there are new tracks out, I could hear all the time (for more: look at the end of the interview!). This filtered, sampled music ist so unbelievible f*** great. It’s music you can listen to at every day or night time, just put it on your mp3-player and LOVE IT !

So before the interview let me say some last words: It was real big pleasure to read and you will also recognize why. This guy is PURE AUTHENTIC !

——————————————————————————————————————

Questions:

Tell us what you love and what not about Athens.

In athens I love the nightlife cause everyday of the week there’s always something to do. I hate the morning traffic though 🙂

Which song is playing in the background in this moment ?

Alex Metric – Head Straight

Tell us what music means to You in 1 or 2 sentences.

Music is something I Do to get away from all the stress, it helps me relax and leave everything else behind for a while. Music is my drug I guess !

I guess we also know that feeling for sure 😉 !!!
And how would you describe your own music with a few keywords ?

Until now it was classic Disco House / french House mostly, later on I might do some other stuff too, who knows 🙂

What was the reason, why you started making music ?

I don’t know I’ve started since I was like 8 so I guess it’s something that makes me happy.

And what is your inspiration ?

Exams, when I’m in an exam period all good ideas come to my head 😛 .  It’s true !

Strange … a little bit. But who isn’t ?! 😉
Is there any intention/message in your music ? If Yes, which ?

To make people dance/sing/think, just that I guess nothing complicated.

I’ve been already successful ! I did all these things yet !
Why did you choose ‘Poka’ as your artist name ? Is there maybe a story behind or are these your names ?

It comes from my last name plus it’s easy to remember.

Where is the place you love to listen to music the most ? (unimportant whether it’s on your mp3-player or whether it’s live music)

Outdoor concerts

I give you some keywords and you say what comes spontaneously into your mind:

Daft Punk My heroes, they introduced me to house music back in 1996 w/ “Da Funk”
Oldies My Sample material !
Woman Source of all good and evil things
Rain Keeps me at home
Lonely Nights My latest track, hope you all like it 🙂

What is the question you ever wanted to be questioned and never been on an interview ? And answer it.

This one: “What is the question you ever wanted to be questioned and never been on an interview?”

I also hope to arrange some gigs here in Athens or maybe somewhere else in Europe if that’s possible and finally be able to meet all those myspace friends I have all over the world!

This is my first interview and I hope it wont be the last , lol
Thanks : Doze for all the support , all the guys from myspace that are there for me ( they know who they are! ) , the bloggers and last but not least the fans !

Cryda Luv'

CRYDA LUV’ from France, already written about him, so you should know how much I love his music ! The Finest in French House ! I mean the sound should be a tribute to the French Record Label Crydamoure, so one could think Crydamoure overshadows Cryda Luv’, but STOP this thought immediately !
The sound of Cryda Luv’ is so awesome and brilliant that I’m not able to express or describe it with my vocabulary. Finally the music is what this blog is all about:
It’s more than just music !

Questions:

What does make the music of Crydamoure Records so special for you ?

I do see Crydamoure as a label, which without big commercials, has touched many people. A great story was created with fans, waiting impatiently for the next release. It’s a typical example of sound, with amazing loops. So great.

Which song is playing in the background in this moment ?

Hot Chip – Hold On (DIM Remix)
Moulinex – Lover In Me
Yuksek – Tonight
MR Oizo – Gay Dentist
The Rolling Stones – Satisfaction

Tell us what music means to You in 1 or 2 sentences.

Music is universal and exists for everyone. It’s the best way of evasion and, just for one song, to forget all problems and worries.

I know exactly what you mean !
And how would you describe your own music with a few keywords ?

Simply: refreshing, charming, amusing, disco, filter

What was the reason, why you started making music ?

There is no single reason. I love music since my youngest days and I have always lived with it. In 1999 I decided to play the music I love the way I wished and I wanted to see it evolved.
I started with editing copy/cut samplers and with random tries. Then, with the help of new software and composition material to write music by yourself, I was able to accomplish this dream again and again.

And what is your inspiration ?

Just as it is coming to me: Daft Punk, Crymadoire, Alan Braxe, Patrick Alavi, DJ Sneak, Démon, Sébastien Léger, Fred Falke, Cassius and even more.

Great artists so far.
Is there any intention/message in your music ? If Yes, which ?

Peace and love flew in the music. Music don’t have rules or laws.
No war, no violence. Even more, anyone can do it, and pay tribute to all artists.

You are also known as Dj Puipui, so tell us: What were your biggest and the most terrible moments as a Dj ?

My best moment: my sister’s wedding ! It was a good challenge, because I had to mix disco, rock, and not forget about zouk and rap. It was a great evening and such a pleasure to listen from time to time the mix.

My worst moment: an improvised mix in the “dub café”, a french bar. There no vinyl that I was used to mix in the dj’s selection and some very techno parts, with on top of that a synchronisation problem with the BPM, it was an hard time!

Where is the place you love to listen to music the most ? (unimportant whether it’s on your mp3-player or whether it’s live music)

In my living room to discover news on blogs. In my bed to sleep. Or mostly in my car when I work, because 75% of my work is in my car, always, everywhere !

There already was another big artist on Let Us Know who also loves listening in his car. Hazard ?!
I give you some keywords and you say what comes spontaneously into your mind:

Daft Punk Revelation !
Nu Rave missed
Love Is what i need…
Red Is dead…
Sunglasses at night…so easy…

What is the question you ever wanted to be questioned and never been on an interview ? And answer it.

What can we be awaiting in the upcoming months ?

Many songs which, I hope, would please Crymadoure’s fans. More successfull mixtapes, remix of my favourites artists, and if everything is going fine, an album with lots of good sounds !

Demasi meets Kokii

Demasi Meets Kokii

DEMASI MEETS KOKII are in the house, and no they shouldn’t be called “Demasi & Kokii“. If you want to know why, you should read the interview.
I’ve already told you a lot about their music and they should be known by you yet. They are good friends from Sweden and to say it in Kokii’s words with reference to the upper photo: “Demasi has hair and I’m bald hahaha“.

Do you know that I’ve got also swedish roots on my mother’s side long long time ago ?! Who cares. The sound from Gothenburg is big, fantastic, housy. The latest stuff (Calling Koki and Talisman) is calmer and deeper than the older tracks from them, but I love listening to it, ’cause my thoughts slip away on a smooooth way !

If you want to know and to listen more about/to their stuff, take a look on older posts here on Dozing Music and on Demasi meets Kokii’s MySpace (Links at the end of the interview).

And now, enjoy the interview with Kokii !!!  🙂

——————-

Questions:

First of all
Describe Swedish girls in some words and tell us, why they are maybe different from other ones?

Swedish girls are beautiful just as they are described in American movies. Maybe not called Olga or Helga, but they are nice. The only problem is that they might be a little weird at times. But who really cares? They are Swedish, that itself is pure gold.

You’re absolutly right, pure gold. Now let us start about music.
Which song is playing in the background in this moment ?

Tina Charles – Take all of me

Tell us what music means to You in 1 or 2 sentences.

I don’t know anything about music. In my line you don’t have to (quoting Elvis Presley)

And how would you describe your own music with a few keywords ?

Music for pleasure. We don’t have any intentions to change anyone.

What was the reason, why you started making music ?

For a very strange reason I went into a music store when I was 12 and bought me a bass guitar and started to play and of course listening to Bob Marley my whole life I knew I had to work with music in some way.

Coincidence?! Who knows …
What is your inspiration ?

I get inspired by people with knowledge.

An unexpected answer. Interesting.
And is there any intention/message in your music ? If Yes, which ?

To let her feel that she is halfway to paradise.

Deep, everyone out there should take a while to think about it.
Why did you choose ‘Demasi & Koki’ as your artist name ? Is there maybe a story behind or are these your names ?

The funny thing is that people still thinks our artist name is ‘Demasi & Kokii’ but it’s actually ‘Demasi meets Kokii’. Demasi thought it would be proper since both of us are from two very different worlds.

Where is the place you love to listen to music the most ? (unimportant whether it’s on your mp3-player or whether it’s live music)

While taking a bath.

I give you some keywords and you say what comes spontaneously into your mind:

Daft Punk are better than Chemical brothers, PERIOD!
France I will forever love ‘Belleville Sur Vie’ & ‘La Roche Sur      Yon’ in Nantes. I was an exchange student there so that’s why.
Ice Hockey Club teams in Sweden are the best in Europe.
TV Comedy Central!
Radio Swedish radio stinks, so I start to sing instead
Sunglasses You should always wear vintage

What is the question you ever wanted to be questioned and never been on an interview ? And answer it.

What can’t you live without? “Sunshine
