So who is Sailor & I?

Sailor & I

Someone who sleeps to little, spends most of the time making music and watching documentaries about people living strange lives. I’m very passion driven, so I do what I feel like, it’s quite complicated to live with. But I love to travel, I’m addicted to great food experiences and spend most of my money on vintage synths. I’m also running from something, I don’t know what that is yet (of course I do, but it’s too complicated to explain shortly and I don’t really think no one cares about it…), and I think that’s what makes me so focused on creating this new world, my musical universe.

Your upcoming single ‘Sweat’, can you talk about how it came about?

Sailor & I

It was song I wrote sometime ago that I found lying around in my song library when I was about to create a set for my live performance. So I found it and fell in love with it and decided to record it properly.

Both Tough Love and Turn Around saw impressive remixes, will Sweat get the same treatment?

Sailor & I

Yes, of course. It’s a great way to show that a song can be made in many different ways. It’s also interesting for me as the first messenger to see what happens when someone comes along and tells the story in their own way.

 


 

Soundspace

Your dream collaboration, either living or past?

Sailor & I

No, idea. Maybe Brian Wilson, David Bowie, or Bob Dylan.

Tough Love is a regular on our playlist, and definitely our favourite work from you. Do you have a particular track you prefer above the others?

Sailor & I

Yes, but that song has not been released yet. It’s also hard to tell with the ones I’ve released so far, they are just one percent of the work I have and they are also very different from each other. They all mean something to me, but in a different way.

 

 


 

Soundspace

Three tracks you can’t get enough of?

Sailor & I

My favorite song is Forbidden Colours by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian. I think it’s one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever made. Other songs are Surf’s Up by the Beach Boys and For A While by Frank Sinatra. They’re all songs I never get tired of.

 


 

Soundspace

Tell us something we shouldn’t know about you?

Sailor & I

No.

 


 

Soundspace

What is the coolest thing in your house?

Sailor & I

Maybe my Green Star juice machine for turning vegetables into juice.

 


 

Soundspace

Can you reveal any plans you may have for the future?

Sailor & I

Yep, a couple of new releases this year, which is really exciting. I have lots of things going on at the moment, like finishing my album and trying to find a home for it somewhere label wise, also producing other projects and more than ever ready to start touring.
