Bristol based trio Mediks have release their 2014 kick off single ‘Snake Charmer‘ today as a Beatport exclusive. This fun DnB tune combines old school vocals with a catchy melody. I think I can safely say that this is only the start of their 2014 DnB scene takeover, so keep a good eye on them. The single is already being supported by the likes of Rusko, El Hornet (Pendulum), Excision and Roni Size.
I’ve had a talk with the (not qualified) medical practitioners about the single, their ultimate music video and their favorite movies.
How are you guys doing?
We’re good! We’ve had a great run of dates so far this year – Just got back from a crazy show in Innsbruck, Austria. Missed both flights there and back but the party was crazy!
Your new track ‘Snake Charmer’ has been released today. What can you tell us about the production process?
The track actually started as a very guitar lead tune… We wrote all the riffs on guitar and then slowly replaced each part with a soft synth. Pretty cool way for us to work!
How were the tasks in the studio divided?
It’s completely different for every track! We’re all on Laptops so we make a lot of music separately but always end up finishing the tracks and doing the final mixdowns together.
For me, this track breaths the old-school Pendulum sound. Where you in any way influenced by them?
Who wasn’t? :p
How would the ultimate music video for ‘Snake Charmer’ look?
Miley cyrus being eaten by a snake. Over and over again.
Which software do you use to produce your music?
Myself and Dan are on Ableton and Rob is a Cubase user… The final mix-downs are always done in Ableton though – the stock plugins are awesome.
Does one of you actually have any medical experience?
We are probably the WORST people to have around in the case of an emergency, So no… haha!
What are your favourite movies of all time and why?
Home alone is a classic because for some reason watching a man get hit in the head with a bowling ball is still funny 15 years later.
Which three tracks couldn’t you miss in your lives?
Noisia – Stigma, Noisia – Deception, Noisia & Phace – Program. lol.
What do you see yourselves doing five years from now? Do you have any special goals?
Making more tunes and playing bigger shows!!
