WS007: AIMES – Harmonique Cosmique EP

For the first official release of 2015 Wonder Stories is excited to present AIMES‘ Harmonique Cosmique EP. Designed as a somewhat concept EP, it includes four versions for four types of dance floors. The ‘Disco Version’ is a feel good nu disco romper with hints of italo and classic disco, meant for an early in the night fun and funky dance floor. As the night grows longer, the ‘Late Night Version’ cranks things up a notch, channeling 80s ‘out run’ vibes with dark and sinister sentiment, while the ‘AM Version’ is an adventurous peak time techno cut. To round out the EP we have the ‘Beach Version’, perfect for the laid back sunset (or sunrise) set, meant to be played while sipping a drink with an umbrella in it.

To say thanks for listening we wanted to give away a little something so enjoy the Disco version for free and you can grab the rest of the EP here: tinyurl.com/obcxuub

Big thanks to the early supporters Satin jackets, Tensnake, Alkalino, Chordashian, Disko Selectors, Walter Jones to name a few. :0

Interview:

How did you get in to producing and what where your initial influences?

I was into music since an early age, I can’t remember when exactly but my dad was my initial influence since he’s a guitar player and I was always around and involved in every band he had, impregnating myself into it.

I remember to be a super fan of my dad’s music like Beatles and stuff till a Parliament Funkadelic vinyl came to my hands and then my mind melted down to funk music all the way. I started to consume every single funky record I could find. Then I remember stumbling upon this guy Norman Cook, who at that time (circa 1995) was turning everything into funky dance hits.  

Your productions have a very specific sound, they are colorful and funky. Is this something you set out to achieve or did it just happen?

I think the first answer tells a lot about it. Future Feelings started in 2010 as a way to blend Chillwave and Funk styles, then turned into a more disco dancefloor sound, naturally.

Where did the name Future Feelings come from?

Choosing a name is probably one of the hardest things to do with a project. I had been looking for something catchy but that I really liked and means something to me and what I really want to show. I’ve always been naturally into feeling a bit future-esque, not as a supernatural gift, but kinda into realizing some sort of moments in the near future, so I tried it 🙂

You are originally from Argentina, but now reside in Mexico City by way of Guadalajara. Can you give some insight into the different scenes?

Mexico has a really big scene right now, and its strength has broke any limit worldwide, and I’m kinda happy to be involved in it. Argentina is quite different since all the music they reach is mainly from europe, and there’s a delay on fresh styles. 

Which was your favorite gig and why?

I liked a lot my last time at Tropico Festival in Acapulco, where the headliners were awesome and I spent a great weekend with great talent and friends at the beach watching the sun rise. I think my favorite gig is always the next one.

What’s your favorite track you’ve made and why?

I still really love Odyssey and the whole EP because I spent a lot of time and effort on it. I promise myself I wouldn’t sleep or eat till I get it done. And so it was. 

Who are you favorite producers at the moment?

I really love the work of some people around me at this moment, like the faster delivery on tracks Futurewife or Mijo does. The fine tuning Dan Solo do with his tracks, or the broken beats of Thomass Jackson.  Los Mekanikos are getting bigger on their style, and internationally I think Oliver $, Julian Sanza, and Justin Faust is doing it great. I’m currently listening to a lot of different new music, so I’d like to include the new Theo Parrish record, and Blood Orange is great as well.

Favorite label at the moment?

Can’t name only one: Exxxtra Picante, Sanfuentes, Correspondant, Electrique, Gomma, Tigersushi, and probably whichever one in which my friends are releasing on. 

What’s on the future for you?

I’m currently working with talented friends as Juan Soto, Gabriel from Avanti, Thomass Jackson, and more on a Future Feelings album for 2015. I’m not as much interested on releasing an album as for an albums sake, but to have a repertoire to play live as a band in the near future 🙂 More news soon..
