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.
Hi there ! Where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
Hello! Atm i’m based in a little town close to Milan, a really quiet place.
Usually, I start my day by waking with a coffee while thinking about how to distribute things to do throughout the day.
When did the idea of starting a project start to take shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
I believe that every musical project comes from a different need.
in this case the process that led to the creation of 1STR1C3 started quite spontaneously, I believe that music, in all its
forms, is a beautiful form of expression that is nice to share with other people who maybe share a kind of sensitivity
with you or maybe they perceive totally different vibes while listening to your music.
I like to see the different reactions that the same work can provoke in different people.
How would you define the sound of your latest work? What is the concept behind?
“Fastridebadfinish EP” come from a trip I made one evening while I was smoking at home.
I personally think that this work conveys many different types of moods such as anxiety, melancholy, remorse, fear,
adrenaline, love and resignation in the form of electronic music.
What artists are you interested in these days?
I am someone who listens to different music every day and who changes his mind very often, so it is difficult for me to
give you an answer
How do you manage to combine such disparate genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What
do they have in common for you?
Generally I don’t like to explain the single tracks that make up a work.
In ”Fastridebadfinish” in particular, all the songs need each other to make sure that all the emotions and sensations I had
inside while working on this project come through.
I had this idea in mind, I started playing, and this is the result.
How would you define your sound?
Electronic, warm and constantly changing
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
In march i will 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.
