Ukranian producers Indifferent Guy & ODYSSAY recently began working together as a duo, following their initial success as individual producers. Finding an incredible synergy, they began co-producing and performing together in their home country. Making their Purified Records debut, the producers are set to release their poignant collaboration ‘Answers In The Dark’, as part of the label’s Purified Fragments VII compilation, and we were able to catch up with the guys on Raver Mag. Check out the full interview below.
Hi guys! Welcome to Raver Mag. Where are we speaking to you from today?
Hi! We are in Ukraine now, ODYSSAY is in Kyiv and Indifferent guy is in another city under Russian occupation. We are not together at the moment, but we keep in touch all the time.
We love your new track ‘Answers In The Dark’, which is coming out on Purified Records. How did this one come about and what was the inspiration behind it?
Thank you for the nice words. This track is very philosophical. It’s about striving to move towards the light. Unfortunately, sometimes the light burns our wings and we fall into darkness, where we find new answers to questions.
What do you hope to achieve with this record?
When you write a new track, you don’t have a goal to achieve something with it, you want to express your thoughts and feelings. That’s the main thing. If people like it, that’s the main goal.
How did you guys come to work together?
We had known each other for a long time and just at some point decided to try something new. I think it worked out for us.
We loved your stream on Radio Intense. Do you have plans to do more streams?
Thank you, we plan to perform streams both as a duo and separately. Right now we are also performing as a duo, but soon you will be able to see our solo performances.
How do you find inspiration for your tracks?
More often than not, it is the work of each individually. ODYSSAY comes up with the initial idea with vocals and meaning, and Indifferent Guy develops it musically.
Who would you love to collaborate in the future?
We think there are many such artists and the list could be long. But surely Nora En Pure, Rufus du Sol, Cassian, Franky Wah, Cristoph are on the list.
If you could host an event anywhere in the world, where would it be and who would be on the lineup?
It could be LA, with the artists from the previous question.
What else do you guys have coming up?
We are now preparing to perform separately. ODYSSAY will release his first solo track «Freedom» in May and plans to do a live stream. Indifferent Guy is also preparing many strong solo tracks. Follow us on social media!
Any last words for our readers?
Right now we are in Ukraine, there is a war going on. The meaning of the track Answers in the Dark is very relevant. We are in darkness, not knowing what will happen to us and to our country. But we believe that we will be able to endure. We turn to all readers and ask them to support our country and our people. Our country needs this very much. Thank you all for your support!
