Read the MURDAH SRVC Interview below and share it on social media.

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

My name is CHE and I'm a singer/songwriter. MURDAH SRVC (Murder Service) is an audio and visual project, heavily influenced by Japanese pop culture.
Filthy drum machines, dark synths and filtered vocals are the landscape in which MURDAH SRVC songs unravel.
A future scenery is where the sci-fi manga influenced comic takes place.
I take care of writing the songs, the story and design the manga as well.
First single is "Running on the surface"
Second single is called "Icarus"
Both produced by Marco "John Lui" Pettinato.

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

For this project, music inspiration comes from artists like Massive Attack, Portishead, SOHN, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean.
Visually Katsuhiro Otomo, Hirohiko Araki, Hisashi Eguchi, Hideaki Anno are the main influences.

I grew up listening to hip hop, r&b and soul. Over the years I prefer darker atmospheres, more electronic sounds into my productions but generally speaking to listen to.

What´s new right now?

I've been touring Europe lately. London, Berlin, and Sicily.
MURDAH SRVC project comes out as an EP that has been releasing one song at the time every month along with the music video.
So far I released two singles, and a new coming up in a few weeks.
I'm planning, after the EP final release to release first episode of the manga as well and to continue touring.

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?

My favourite singer of all time is Marvin Gaye. Because of his elegance, voice skills, producer's skills and crazy story. All those things made me listen to his music a lot since I was a teenager.

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?

Make contracts. Whatever you do, sign paperwork and shit. I got fucked up more than once by not doing it.

How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?

I take of every single aspect of MURDAH SRVC project, booking included. I personally email every single venue that I believe might be interested into my sound, negotiate a fee, accomodation, expenses and so on.
My tip is: be steady and dedicated. It's a neverending job but definitely worthy.

Do you have good promotion tips for other musicians?

Go live. Go play gigs as much as you can and talk to people before, after. This is how you connect to your audience, not only online.

Do you have insights on how to grow your audience on soundcloud that you want to share with our audience?

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

My biggest challenge is to get my project heard from people that might be interested into it. Not anybody. So the search is even more difficult. I wanna find people that can understand, not only fans.

How do you personally discover new music?

I use Soundcloud and Spotify a lot. Then of course if some friend suggests new music I'll be even more willing to listen to.
Whenever I have the chance I go see live bands that makes original music.


[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]

“I tell people that might be interested by linking a song or a video

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

Write as much as you can. Ideally one song a week, makes 52 new songs a year. I wrote 18 songs for this EP, produced 5 eventually. Choose only what really represents you and make sure you find your unique sound. My tip is: don't be afraid to erase everything and start all over again.

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

Don't spend forever on a track. If you're not a 100% sure just finish it and go onto the next one.
