Where are you currently based?
How did you first start playing music?
I produce since 2002. After some time spent ghost producing and writing music for others, took a part as an artist as Downtown Party Network with my friend Saulty back in 2008. Tracks went viral in a disco scene so there was nothing else to do but start touring and dj’ing around the World.
Then, 2014 was the year when I started my solo career as Gardens of God on Maceo Plex’s Ellum Audio.
What’s been happening recently and how did you first start playing music?
Last year wasn’t good gig wise at all. Pandemic situation locked me as most of the artists in the studio. And that came out quite a good thing after all. Being stuck for such a long time gave opportunity to rethink of what’s important and where to go music wise. Can’t say I made something I don’t like, but since the first track the Idea of Gardens of God was I’m gonna do what I want and how I see it with no compromise. And after some time traveling I got lost a bit in the influences and trends of what happened around the scene. So no gig year took me back to where I should be.
Your 10 track debut is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
How did you go about writing the record?
Where and when did you record/produce?
What programs and equipment did you use?
Why did you decide to create and release a record now?
The record is quite different to your last, how did the change in sound/songwriting come about?
As I worked with a lot of pop music and music for movies / tv shows, the melodic part of me was little bit overshadowed. That is bad, because I graduated as a musician and I always loved harmony – rich music, so I think that part of me took over finally and said enough with just only electronic tracks.
What’s the meaning behind the name of the album?
I still work with soundtracks and background music sometimes, so that would be a shame not to do a soundtrack for the movie I live in, for the end I experience.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
What do you like to do away from music?
What’s planned for the remainder of 2021?
Some remixes of the album tracks are already done by the artists I love, so it’s planned them to come out later this year. Also original music from me is already in a schedule so it seems like it’s gonna be a great year release wise.
Favourite food and place to hangout?
Everything is in a lockdown at the moment in Lithuania, so the favourite place to hang out is my home. This winter was amazing, we had so much snow and the nature looked like in a postcard. So we discovered a great activity on the lake make an ice hole and dip inside for few minutes with friends.
