What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
We have always been fascinated with the 70’s disco era, and we’ve collected rare and cheesy disco albums ever since the early 90’s.
Starting out as a live act we finally built our own studio and now we spend most of our time there. We want to celebrate the playfulness of the disco era and combine it with new elements.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
The song “We need to spend some time together” handles the fact that we need to stop looking down into our cell phones and computers and start connecting with people in real life. We also love the sound of a funky flute and thought this would be great track to have a flute solo.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
Main influence would have to be Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk music wise them both being able to make machines sound groovy.
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
The sound of Stereo Explosion is mix of electronic and acoustic vibes, with a retro feel to it but always with one foot in the future.
Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…
Kraftwerk-Computer love, Chic-C’est Chic, Ennio Morricone-Once upon a time in the west
Blue velvet, Blade runner, Blow out (De Palma)
Brave new world, Freedom, The Steppenwolf
Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
Right now we prefer the studio. It’s a very creative place to be in and there are fewer boundaries. If you want to record a ten piece string orchestra you just do it.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
We need to spend some time together. We wanted it to be free from traditotional pop format and still be an attractive song to listen to and I think we managed with this song.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
Right now we’re writing music for a musical and hopefully that will give us inspiration for some new songs.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
