Read the floatgoat Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


We are Floatgoat! Hailing from Denver Colorado, and consisting of two members including; Arias James Goldanloo (bassist, producer, engineer) & Gavi Torres-Olivares (guitarist, producer). We infuse elements of jazz and rock with modern electronica reminiscent of artists like; Daft Punk, Chromeo, Lotus, and Sound Tribe Sector 9.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


Gavi: My influences started with playing rock guitar and being obsessed with players like randy roads and yngwie malmsteen. When I was younger I was more close minded and didn't really know about other music as much, but over time I've accumulated different styles having studied music at school starting in my early formative years and then going through university jazz schooling. This led me to become more open minded to all music and i quickly developed a love for funk, jazz and countless other genres. While staying true to shred guitar roots in my playing overall i utilize next to every genres in both my playing and composing!

Arias: My musical influence first came when I noticed I had a keen ear for rhythm. Initially I was inspired by Fieldy the bassist from Korn, then I got into electronic music and was mesmerized by the amazing sonic capabilities of music production. It was not soon after that I invested in Ableton Live as well as analog and digital hardware synthesizers. At the time I was extremely obsessed with glitch hop music, because it pushed the boundaries of sound design further than any genre I had ever heard. Over the years I went to school for music where I learned more about composition and music theory, thus turning me into a jazz nerd & funk head.


What´s new right now?


We are currently sitting on stacks of unreleased music, and gearing up to drop a single titled "Scrumpies". We got inspired by the title for "Scrumpies" on our adventures with Evanoff playing the Animas City Theatre in Durango, CO in February of 2017. This dude kept making up the most hilarious names for things, and one of them was scrumpies, "the stuff that gets stuck to the bottom of your foot after a raging party." Along with this release we are gearing up to headline legendary venue The Eldo in Crested Butte Colorado this December! 2018 is going to be a big year for FLOATGOAT, because we have plans to take our funk further than it's been before by touring full time, releasing tons of singles, and immensely developing our brand.
