Armon I has created the new retrowave of Nightdrivers1983
The recrew Armon I is 27 years old. He is part of the weekend producer course in r12 and takes the opportunity to explain the project he has been carrying out with another boy ("outside the school") for 4 months. "I have always been attracted by the production of electronic music, before the uproar occurred, in the dance scenario I have always produced big rooms and progressive houses," explains Armon I. "I have now reached the point of not knowing what to listen to, I had a moment of stalemate. By chance, I met Moreno (the drummer) and speaking I approached a genre little known yet super cool: the new retrowave. He is now the drummer and I the composer ".
What is this genre? "In electronic music with strictly 80s sounds. Not necessarily dance, even listening. We are born like this, we Nightdrivers1983. The idea seems to have arrived at the bean since the Eighty mood is coming back to everything. a world is open: the search for vintage machines, the charm of sound design to learn how to modulate and to have a personal imprinting in the pieces, in short, the flame came back to me ".
The Nightdrivers1983 have an Instagram page that has 820 followers. "We have released an instrumental EP entitled Nightdrivers1983 on Spotify and many other music stores like Deezer, Amazon Music, Apple Music, iTunes; we are now working on an album where we will repeat the songs of the EP sung and others unpublished. throw out covers of 80s songs so as not to get too stiff and dj sets After the summer we will surely start performing live first in dj sets (since I'm also dj) and then in live with electronic drums, keyboard and vocals. one of the starting dates will be at Varese's Twiggy, but it's not yet final ".
This is broadly the project lot. "In parallel I am working on a very personal and trance idea, which is my great love as a genre. I am starting to produce tracks and put together ideas to throw out Poadcasts. In this case my stage name is Armon I ".
