soul eaters ✕ interview

Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome, Soul Eaters! We recommend to play this awesome music during reading for better perception! 

Hello Soul Eaters! How would you introduce yourself?
﹥We are Soul Eaters, a French duo of producers making mainly Trap & Future Bass music, but also producing trap beats for rappers and exploring different music genres.

When did you start making music?
﹥Actually, we started making music in 7th grade, but it was pretty bad though and it was just for fun. We seriously started music about 4 years ago when we were in 10th grade.

What is your favourite instrument or a plugin to use while creating music?
﹥Our favourite plugin has to be Serum, we use it in almost every track, but our favourite instrument is the Rhodes. We often start our song with it, and it often stays in the final result.

When you get started with creating new piece, what do you do at first?
﹥It depends on which kind of production we’re about to make. If it’s a Future Bass tune, we always try to find some emotional chords at first. If it’s an instrumental trap beat, it starts with trying to find a catchy melody or a good sample and if it’s an EDM Trap song we start with the drums. But basically, I think we mostly start with the chords.

Who had (or has) the greatest influence on your music?
﹥Our influences are clearly not the same today as they were when we started producing music. But the band who clearly had (and still has) the biggest and greatest influence on us is Daft Punk. They are the reason we got into music and started producing.

If you could create something with any artist, who would it be?
﹥That’s a good question. I guess it would be between TroyBoï and RL Grime, or between Billie Eilish and The Weeknd.

What is your greatest inspiration?
﹥It’s simply listening to music, and mainly new music. Give attention to the process of creation and all the elements used in a song you like is what brings the most ideas and motivation to produce.

What gives you the greatest boost to keep on creating music?
﹥It’s the desire to improve. Like every time we finish a song, even if we are truly satisfied, there is always a desire to make something bigger, something a level above.

What thing about making music do you wish someone told you earlier?
﹥I think that would be something about the importance of mastering. We’ve been mastering our songs really late, so before our tracks were not of good quality.

What part of making music do you cherish the most?
﹥The moment when you feel like you’ve succeeded to put your emotions into the track. The moment when what the song makes you feel like is actually how you wanted to feel it when all starts to come together.

What do you prefer: sampling, simply playing music or maybe both sound fine?
﹥Both sound fine, to be honest, but we don’t use sample often so I guess it would be simply playing music.
