Korteus


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


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


Hi! Im Korteus, a 19 years old independent artist and musician born on Mexico, who believes music is everything on life, trying to explore so much genres as possible, and with the dream that people could find on his music, the same unique and interesting things he have found in it.

Yes, maybe you can say I'm not too known, but no one can be a great artist without a long way and hours of learn and experimentation, and obviously, making what he loves the most: music.


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


I've always in love with videogames, music and japanese culture, from my 15 years old. Some yeas ago, I've listened to Savant for first time, and I have to say… His "Alchemist LP" was of great impact to me, since then, I've wondering myself how that kind of artists can make so ingenious and epic music. My first infulences was him, specially, then I discovered some others like Xilent, Au5, Rogue, P*Light, Zomboy, Haywyre, Moe Shop, Dirt Monkey, Slushii and some more really talented producers I like.
Nowadays, my main inspiration and the best producer i've met, is ???? (Camellia), so one of my aims is be as good as him and could share the same passion he put it on me while I listened to his music.
Maybe.. All my influences has changed over time, since the melodic and 8-bit vibes, to the most brutal drops, and chill and jazzy notes on piano.. So yes, my taste have been evolving with the pass of time.


What´s new right now?


Currently I'm working on something that easily could be the definitive "Korteus" style and sound design. I've always love the Sci Fi and Futuristic sounds mixed with hard basses and brutal growls, so, why not make a kinda weird but original style? Haha
I was thinking about to make an EP with the theme of the space and the sensations you're traveling, discovering new worlds and having a totally new experience.
The first track is almost done, but actually I can't say an exact date for the EP release. But you can stay tuned by following me on my social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and yes, SoundCloud too.

In fact, and independently the last I mencioned before, I've uploaded a little preview of one "non-serious" track on my second SoundCloud account, to give you guys a little taste of what's new.
With this track in specific, I wanna do a criticism to the actual dubstep scene, or better named: Riddim. Using some basses that sounds almost like the cliche sound desing of famous artists now on day, the same repetitive rythm and the feels like your neck is gonna break if you keep listening to similar tracks over and over again.
But for sure, give it my classical strings and drums style, 'cause is not only about to do the same that other artists are making, but doing it with style.
