James Basdanis has recently released his new, second EP entitled Diddycoy, consisting of three tracks.
What can we know about the EP and each of its tracks?
This EP is a collection of moments and images. 3 tracks (Diddycoy, Unbalanced, The Conium). As I’m usually saying for my instrumental music, everyone of these tracks is a part of the soundtrack of my life!
What inspired them?
Each of the tracks hides a story behind it. I think the most important thing to mention about “The Conium” is that it is a farewell song, or better a funeral song, for one of the guitarists who, although I never met him, greatly influenced me, Mr Yiannis Spathas.
To whom do you recommend the EP and its songs, and along with what kind of thoughts?
To anyone, who wants to hear something fresh in the music! The actual target is as he listens to this album to bring back to his mind his own life moments from his past or his imagination.
How was the creative and working process of the DIDDICOY EP?
First of all, I compose the main parts and melodies, as well as a rough layout. Then we rehearse the tracks with Nick (bass) and George (drums) until the final version of each song is completed. The three of us are recording live in the studio and, if necessary, we will add additional recordings from other instruments. As happened in “Diddycoy” with Sofia (percussion) and in “The Conium” with Alex (keys).
