Video interview: Erik Rico | The Wonderful World of Carminelitta

Video interview: Erik Rico


Cover artwork for Direct Soul

I have to admit I haven’t been that excited in ages! Yesterday night was one of the most beautiful nights ever for me, as I got to spend some time with Erik Rico before his performance at Tru Trading in London, as part of a celebration of the Carnival and I was fortunate enough to ask him a few questions… This is yet another great interview (you can check out the previous one I did with him here) and Mr Rico once again shared some very insightful and inspiring thoughts, telling me about his (numerous) upcoming projects and performances, as well as his views on art, creation and the state of music nowadays. If you are a fan of his music, you have many reasons to rejoice and you should be as impatient and excited as I am about all the goodness he has in store for us.

One of the great things to look forward to is his EP with London-based legendary producer Marc Mac, entitled Direct Soul, which won’t be out before October. But if you’ve been checking out blogs lately, you will probably have heard the amazing Destiny, leaked from the project, which definitely makes me want to hear more from the two geniuses. If you missed this one, you can catch up on Moovmnt and get your fix of beautiful vibrations.

Now, without further delay, here is the wonderful Erik Rico, in his own words…

    An excellent and extremely informative interview.

    Very, very interesting when he spoke on the assessibility of modern music.
    A lot of musicians have become selfish and lazy. When making music musicians forget the mistake is part of building the song or track. How many great classic songs do we hear and there is always a part that was an error but when finished became part of the record.

    I also loved when Eric touched on sampling or duplicating music, striving to be original. Real talk.

    Really excited about all those forthcoming projects. That Phil Asher collab sounds intriguing as well as the continued Lifenotes series. Glad to hear he is going to keep the reworks going also as I loved that project.

    Thank you for sharing this : )
