CLINIK: What is the significance of the name nodus?
nodus: Minecraft hax.
C: How has the bass community influenced your outlook on music, if at all?
N: I never thought I'd be traveling halfway across the country to catch my favorite artists. The bass community has very unique artists that individually bring something worth seeing.
C: What initially inspired you to create original music?
N: I haven't made anything I'm ready to show the world yet. I’m inspired by literally everyone I listen to, but a G Jones concert got me pumped to learn ableton.
C: What is your preferred DAW and why? What are your favorite tools to use for sound design?
N: Ableton and im messing with Trash 2, Operator, saturator. Basically learning to make some nasty reeses.
C: How do you approach creating a mix for a streaming service such as SoundCloud vs. playing live in front of some sort of crowd?
N: I just pick a track, and then I pick another track that I think can go with it. I love to freestyle. Can't plan these things or I get nervous.
C: When you’re not busy making music, who are some artists that you like to listen to?
N: Ivy Lab, Tsuruda, Halogenix, Whiney, mr. bill, G Jones, Frequent, Tipper, Charlesthefirst, Imanu, and I can go on forever.
C: What is one venue or festival in the world that you would love to perform at?
N: I just went to Bogart House in Brooklyn the other day for a techno show so I'd flex those Funktion-1s with some DnB that NYC desperately needs. I don't care to play festivals, that's too nerve wracking for me.
C: If you could go b2b with any artist, who would it be?
N: I'd like to go b2b with all my friends at an underground show, but I know Tsuruda would be so much fun to play with.
C: You have a unique approach to music. What advice would you give to up and coming artists/producers who don’t want to hop on trends and want to create their own lane like you have?
N: Trends are lame, be different and weird.
C: What are some of your goals in regards to growing as a producer?
N: My goal is just to have a discography that I'm proud of. No regrets, no trends, never doing it for money or clout, always taking my time with things. Maybe I'll release music or maybe I won't, but if I do then it's gonna be for me.
