- Canblaster, introduce yourself.
“Sure, I’m Cedric a.k.a. Canblaster, and I made my way from Douai to Paris with the help of the Club Cheval guys.”
Yeah, you’re part of the Club Cheval crew – tell us about that.
“Club Cheval is a Polytheist crew we founded with Myd, Sam Tiba and Panteros666 in Lille, north of France. My God goes by the name of Melodius, which means I’m the synth and chords part of the crew.
“We’re also working on a new project all together, there will be more to come in the next few months.”
How did you start making music, and what sort of thing were you making?
“I used to do tracks for arcade video games when I was in college, like 6 years ago, using loads of fake names to make all kinds of weird music, from ethno-hardcore to electro-jazz… Then I met Myd and we started DJing together, and I really got into club music soon after this.”
What do you make tunes on now, and how would you describe what you make?
“Overproduced, ’90s referencing electro music. Wooden and bleepy at the same time, like a robotic palmtree. Sounds a bit like emeralds vibes too sometimes.”
Any artists that are particularly strong influences/inspirations on you?
“Basement Jaxx, Detroit and Underground Resistance, juke and Baltimore, James Blake and Night Slugs, J-Pop and video game OST, 90′s R’n'B and New Jack Swing, tribal and ballroom… But other medias are the best inspirations sometimes, like films or animated series.”
What do you have in the pipeline for 2011?
“My second EP, Master of Complication, is getting released this month on Nightshifters, with remix from Para One & Teki Latex. Right now I’m working on remixes for French Fries, Pelican Fly and The Count & Sinden. Also working on a third EP, and some tracks with the other Club Cheval people.”
