Junkie System


Read the Junkie System Interview below and share it on social media.


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


My name is Junkie System, my music is born from the need of relieve stress, scream loud and forget your life while you drain your energy as heavy sounds enter in your brain making you look like if the devil possessed your body .
That was mainly my project, but now is just one part of my works, as the another part that makes Junkie System is music melody driven that explores new frontiers of electronic music as it puts the listener in the world I create, music more about places and sensations than rocking the fuck out.

If I had to describe my work with generes, I'd say its mainly Bass, DnB, Alternative and Electro. But its never something you listened before.


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


When I started the Junkie System project the generes I listened to where DnB, Electro, Metal and Dubstep. Artists like Pendulum, Benny Page, Prodigy, Skrillex, Rusko, Tristam or Pegboard Nerds where the reason I started this.
At the time, I really enjoy listening to Arca, Crystal Castles, Phuture Doom, Boys Noize, Dimension, Gojira, Ghost, Rotting Christ… I guess over the years I opened myself to diversity, and what I really enjoy is listening to music that explores new sounds, new structures and music that makes me feel something, a quality that is quite hard to find in the actual EDM scene. Althoug, I belive that EDM can be more than "lit drops" and generic vocals. I recall feeling a lot of things when I first heard Skrillex's Scary Monsters and nice sprites EP or when I discovered Panda Eyes or San Holo. Actually I want to mention bitbird label, I'm listening a lot from them lately, and I think they launch the most original and rebellious "EDM" songs.

Outside the Electronic and Metal scene, I listen to Nirvana, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, The Beatles… Artists who changed music and opened gates for new generations.


What´s new right now?


At the moment, my project is very young and a Junkie System fanbase is just a thing I can dream of. The rest of 2017 I'll release several bootlegs and Remixes. As 2018 comes, I'll expand my Solo works, putting out the most complex and coherent songs I ever made, these will explore multiple generes of Bass and Alternative Electronic but in a different way people are used to listen.
My biggest project for the near future is to direct the Music video of one of my upcoming songs. This project is very important to me, as I wrote the story and conceived the Idea, the locations and the photography. Unfortunately, it may take more time than the expected, because I only count with the support of some friends and co-workers and I want a professional result.

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


Ghost and Skrillex. They both make music that goes straight to my soul, and the visual concept of both of them just fits in me.
I had the luck to assist to a performance of Skrillex in 2015 and a performance of Ghost spring of this year, in both shows I was at first row and man, there's nothing like enjoying a live performance of your Idols.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


My biggest mistake was to be passive about my music, nowadays you won't get much just posting songs. I think artists have to work on their image, on social media and searching for feedback. And yes, its kinda frustrating to work hard on something in order to work hard on other things to get some recognition, but is better to be hopeful than just give up.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


My biggest challenge of course is promote my music and be active on social media. Its just frustrating spending hours and hours on something just to have like 50 or 100 streams on Soundcloud or Youtube. Now I wanna try to release something on Spotify.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


Apart of practice, practice and more practice I'd recommend listening to a large variety of music, just not your favorite genere, and of course making music out of your comfort zone. Also attend as much masterclasses as you can and share feedback with other artists.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


When you get stuck on a song, give it time because maybe is not the moment. I recall making my favorite track (which I'll release in 2018 with a music video) and getting stuck. I was like a month trying things and things but nothing was good enough for me or coherent with the principal idea. After a month, I sat at my home studio, and literally in one hour I made the perfect ending to my song. Never been so proud.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


Hahaha, I hope things start getting better in a year. I'd like to have a small fanbase, more recognition and at least a couple of music videos made by me. Also improve my sound design knowledge and be better at mastering.
