[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Ekoboy makes his debut on Birdfeed, but he's no stranger to Dirtybird......you might know him as Vangelis Kostoxenakis, or his tracks 'Pay My Bills' or 'Take Your Shirt Off'.
-How long have you been creating music?
I've been doing music for more than 20 years. It has always been a passion and I'm blessed I turned my dream into a profession.
-What do you use to make your tracks?
I'm a hardcore synth enthusiast. I've tried many times to switch to VSTs but there was no soul and I couldn't deliver exactly what I had in mind. Developers and technology are certainly in a phase that can emulate extremely well a Moog for example but still, I want the real thing. There's a connection that can't be emulated when there's a real instrument in front of you instead of a mouse.
-How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?
I've knows DB since the Who's Afraid of Detroit days which was also Claude's mark and the labels' for so many fans including my self.
-Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?
Papa of course! But I love Catz 'n Dogz, Walker & Royce and Worthy. However, with Worthy we had the opportunity to collaborate on a track for his label so that can be ticked off my list :)
-If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?
hmm thats a tough one but i think Rocky.
-What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
Been to, Chemical Brothers, played Dirtybird Campout, no question about that!
-If you could time travel, where and when would you go?
I'd love to be next to a black hole and watch the entire history of mankind.
-What species of bird best describes you and why?
I think the sparrow. It's little but it is intelligent and cunning.
-What does Dirtybird mean to you?
I've posted many times on my socials that DB represents family to me. I've met the crew only once, Deron once more in ADE and everyone made me feel a member. Dirtybird is the label I sent my music first. That describes it all.
