Back from many years of traveling, Mathieu Koss had found his inspiration in all the cultures and countries his visited. Now he is ready to conquer the globe, one track at a time. While in the process of his latest release ‘Unity‘ featuring Boris Way, France’s DJ/producer Mathieu Koss sat down to with Sonic Agenda to talk about the record, his relationship with Boris Way, what music is bubbling in France, and what is next in 2015 for Mathieu Koss.
July 13th will see the release of your most recent collaboration with Boris Way entitled ‘Unity’ on Dice Records. How did you and Boris Way hook up? How did the concept for ‘Unity’ all come about?
Hey first I would like to say thank you to Sonic Agenda for this feature! I met Boris Way five years ago, he’s one of my best mates. Last January I sent to him a snippet of something I was working on for a feedback and we decided to finish this one together! ‘Unity’ was born!
2015 has been a great year for you so far with releases such as ‘ Khaosan’, ‘Passenger’, “Lombok’, and now ‘Unity’. What does the rest of 2015 has in store for Mathieu Koss fans?
Yes, I’m trying some new things, I’ve just finished an new edit (remix) of a famous UK band ! Something really different and definitely for the summer !
What has been your most proud production so far in your career and why?
Definitely ‘Khaosan‘! I put all my heart and soul into this one. ‘Khaosan‘ was born after a long trip in Thailand and I was thinking to make a song that brings what I saw and lived!
In your bio it states that traveling inspired you to create music. Can you tell us a little about this and how the amazing sites you saw set you on a path of music?
A year ago I made a big trip, I was looking for something new, so I took my luggage and a visa for one year in Australia. I’ve travelling around this country and New Zealand, Bali, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong. This experience is now definitely an influence in my music, because when I’m starting a new song I remember always a part of my trip ! I want to share what I lived during this amazing year.
Hailing from France, can you tell us a little bit about the EDM scene in France? What genre is popular right now, what track is taking the airwaves by storm?
EDM scene in France is like everywhere it’s starting to die! Peoples want new things and songs they could listen toin their cars!
Actually the most popular genre in France I think is House and Deep! ( The French touch is back haha)
Mathieu Koss will release ‘Unity‘ featuring Boris Way on July 13th as a free download, but you can check out the exclusive preview here on Sonic Agenda!!
