Psychedelic Magazine: Hi there Boban. Let’s start with the basics, who you are and where are you from?
Egorythmia: Hi there. I’m a music producer from North Macedonia, a small beautiful country from the south of the Balkans.
Psychedelic Magazine: How did you start your journey in Psy-trance?
Egorythmia: First time I discovered Psy-trance was in the late ’90s in my hometown Skopje, where I visited some of the underground parties from that period. I was immediately hypnotized by the magical Goa Trance music.
Psychedelic Magazine: How you got involved with the production of music eventually?
Egorythmia: As I discovered the music I went a step further and started discovering the way this music is produced. From there on, I started exploring and upgraded my knowledge. As the years went by, my interest grew, and producing became my main preoccupation.
Psychedelic Magazine: It was a long ride until you come to the point you are today?
Egorythmia: Yes. The ride was hard and demanded most of my time. I am doing this 14 years till today, but from 2008 I am working on Egorythmia project.
Psychedelic Magazine: How you would describe your music style?
Egorythmia: My music style goes from deep dark techno-trance to progressive Psy-trance. But I also produce other kinds of music like breaks, downtempo and techno.
Psychedelic Magazine: What means to you to be member of IONO family?
Egorythmia: The fluid between me and IONO came naturally because my music style fits perfectly with the music style that IONO releases. We are together for 8 years. Also, I must say that Matthias and I became really good friends and our support is mutual.
Psychedelic Magazine: Is there anything specific you draw inspiration from?
Egorythmia: Alone time with myself.
Psychedelic Magazine: Let’s talk about the production, what DAW you use today?
Egorythmia: Mostly I use software DAW like Cubase.
Psychedelic Magazine: The eternal question, hardware or software?
Egorythmia: These days the VST’s are more and more used because the quality is advancing every day.
Psychedelic Magazine: Any specific favourite hardware and/or software this days?
Egorythmia: My favorite VST’s are Native Instruments, Sylenth, and all of the Spectrasonics collection. For my live sets, I also use Native Instruments controllers.
Psychedelic Magazine: You have any advice to give to the “young guns” out there trying to produce their own beats?
Egorythmia: Fall in love with your beat and give your new lover all the time and attention it needs. Never give up and you will be rewarded.
Psychedelic Magazine: How do you see our scene as of today?
Egorythmia: I think the scene is becoming way too commercial, but on the other hand it never was bigger. Never imagined that it will grow this much. However, I enjoy this period like never before because we finally have the opportunity to perform in front of so many people all around the world.
Psychedelic Magazine: Any new releases coming out of cooking?
Egorythmia: Of course. At the moment I’m working on two singles which are going to be released next month. I’m also working on my third compilation for IONO music. But most important, my debut album is in progress and I hope to release it till the end of the year. Besides all this, I’m working on my new project Time Travellers with E-Clip, and soon we will have our first release.
Psychedelic Magazine: What are your future plans?
Egorythmia: I plan to focus more on my album. Also continue traveling, performing, producing. You know, the never-ending story. I want to mention that recently I started working with Terraform Bookings and we have some big things coming up.
Psychedelic Magazine: That’s great news! So, before we wrap this up, you have any message to the psytrance lovers out there?
Egorythmia: We share the same love, so I know how you all feel. Keep feeling it.
Psychedelic Magazine: Thank you for your time Boban and all the best for your project!
Egorythmia: Thank you Psychedelic Magazine, it was a pleasure.
