Budgie y el poder del sample

Budgie uno de los productores más prolíficos de los últimos años. Es un tesoro británico que captura samples y los re-imagina en menos de 2 minutos.  Con más de 10 releases a la fecha, seguimos queriendo más. Como si fuera poco, también tiene un álbum colaborativo con The Alchemist.

Tuvimos una conversación, puntual, acerca de su sonido actual, cómo llegó a trabajar con Kanye West, y qué podemos esperar.

Aquí les dejamos la entrevista, en su idioma original.

El Timbre Suena: I know labels are hard, but how would you describe your sound?

Budgie: My sound is a certain set of chords that I gravitate towards. I find them in a lot of different genres like gospel and brasilian music.

Can you recall the moment when things turned around for you? I mean, when you first realized this was going to be your job?

B: I always knew I was gonna do something in music since I was a kid dancing to the TV, watching Michael Jackson. My dad also has a record shop. I’ve always been around a lot of music my whole life.

I like the length of every release, the cohesion with the sounds in each compilation. Was Panty Soakers intended to be a series?

B: Panty Soakers is just a way for me to indulge in different genres I like and create a story through making loops and beats.

Every Hour was such a powerful way to start the album. God is good! Can you talk about how this collaboration came to be? 

B: I’ve been collecting gospel records for 10 years, and my friend Benji B introduced me to Kanye last year when he started working with the choir. Working with Kanye is an amazing experience, he really is a genius. He’s also one of the most inspiring and generous people I’ve met.

What’s next for you?

B: I’m working on a follow up to Holy Ghost One and an album with some of my musician friends called B Funk.
