Modular Magazine: Who are NVOY?
MM: What are your non-musical influences?
NVOY: Our lives in London influence us, how we feel when we’re out and the emotions that we want our music to express. When we’re making tracks we think a lot about how a person will react to on a dancefloor or listening to it at home. We want people to feel something, and some connection with the music.
MM: What are your musical influences?
NVOY: We listen to a lot of hip hop/rap, future beats, grime, and leftfield electronica. We bring in sounds and ideas from these genres and pull them into our style, which is more centred around house music. It’s fun to draw on a lot of influences which aren’t directly like ourselves.
MM: Name 5 songs everyone should listen to
Frank Ocean – Novacane
D’Anglo – Brown Sugar
Hackney Polo Club – I Need Your Love
Fwdslxsh – 4 U
Detroit Swindle – John Doe
MM: Describe briefly the music scene where you live
NVOY: We live in London, grime is blowing up internationally right now coming from here. There’s a bit of everything in this city though, we like house/techno so we can have a little dance.
MM: How do you describe NVOY’s sound ?
NVOY: Gold, colourful, dense, expansive.
MM: Whats your favorite piece of gear?
NVOY: Con has this really good cafetière which keeps us loaded up throughout long days of making music and eating food.
MM: Analog or Digital?
NVOY: DIGITAL, WE ARE THE INTERNET GENERATION.
MM: What have you been doing recently?
NVOY: We’ve just done remixes for Tove Styrke and Lion Babe, and our track ‘GIRL’ was feature on Annie Mac Free Music Monday. Check everything on our soundcloud.
We’ve been working with Black Butter and are planning to do more with them over the coming year.
MM: Whats next for NVOY?
NVOY: Another remix coming up next week, we’ve got shows in Paris/London/Lancaster/Bristol and a few festivals. Come and say hi and have a glass of something with us if you see us about xxx
