‘Dreamy, Charging, Infectious’ | Interview with Habitat Canada

Anyone else feeling nostalgic over an Era which didn’t even live through? Steady retro basslines and synthesizer arpeggios that give you a weird comfortable vibe. Read our discussion with the Canadian producer.

Describe your sound in 3 words

Dreamy / Charging / Infectious

Tell us a few things about your new song Blindsight. What is the main idea behind it?

I pictured myself on a subway at night in a lively city. going underground and overground, seeing the flashing lights and the nocturnal creatures going to their respective gatherings.

What made you gravitate towards synthwave?

I feel like synths are such inspiring instruments, I’ve always been drawn to them, the possibilities never end, which can be a pain hahah!

If you had to choose one Synthesizer (analog or digital) which one would it be?

That’s impossible to say, but if there was the choice of only one I’d have to go with the “Memorymoog”

When it comes to live perfomance, is Electronika, realistically, a genre that can be performed live?

For sure, there’s many ways of doing it. It can be a simple DJ set, or you can also have a drummer that plays with electronic pads and play the synth parts.

Synthwave is very hot nowdays. Popular video games like Cyberpunk 2077 with darksynth/cyberpunk soundtracks, netflix series like Stranger Things or even commercial artists like Dua Lipa and The Weeknd. But what does the future hold for the genre?

To me its a genre that’s been around since the late 1970’s. It will have its waves, but it’ll always be a form of inspiration for generations to come.

Favorite album of the past decade?

Oliver – Full Circle

Are we on a slippery slope towards dystopia?

I’m afraid so…!

Thank you!
