Five Minutes with JacM Interview…
For this latest “Five Minutes with…” we are off to Poland to speak to the very talented and exciting prospect – JacM. JacM is getting a great deal of attention at the moment on Soundcloud with a few of his tracks already reaching over 100,000 plays! If you want to hear more music from JacM then you can visit his Soundcloud page and/or Facebook page. Lets see how he gets on with our slightly unusual questions…
How would you describe the music that you make in one sentence?
Emotional, deep and a bit melancholic.
What are your three biggest non-musical influences?
Nature (forest, mountains) and city sounds inspire me the most.
You can take five records with you on a desert island. Which ones?
Everything by Burial
If you had to lose one of your senses, which one would it be and why?
Probably smell, I’d be able to live quite normally.
What makes a perfect music venue/nightclub?
What’s the best piece of music that you’ve ever made (that we can link to on SC or FB!)?
I don’t think I’m the one to choose. In that case we will!!
If you could only say one word for the rest of your life, in any language, what would it be and what does it mean?
Be yourself – actually two but that’s it.
What advice would you give your ten-year-old self (musical or not)?
Don’t be lazy.
What is the strongest emotion for making music?
That melancholic feel you get sometimes
If you were interviewing yourself, what other question would you ask (and what’s the answer?)?
Q: Why do you make music? A: I don’t know
How is the electronic music scene in Poland? Are there any artists our readers should definitely check out?
I’m not really into the scene but you should check out Kubix – he makes DnB.
Lastly, how does it feel to have over 100,000 plays on one of your tunes?!?
It’s amazing, I’d like thank all my fans – especially that at the moment I have two songs with over 100 000 plays!
Big thanks to JacM for taking the time to talk to us!
Adam and James
